Find more figma reviews over at the figma blog!

I was told I had to start off with that today…

What figure could Batayan be holding with such great care?!

I really, really wanted to play with this figma, so I quietly took her back to my own desk and decided to do my own review!

001

The 4th Bakemonogatari figma!

figma Suruga Kanbaru!
One of the many heroines from the popular anime ‘Bakemonogatari’!

It’s incredible! Absolutely stunning!
It’s so detailed for a figma-size figure! The coloring team over at Max Factory really are incredible at their work!

002

This is how she looks from the back!

All of her characteristic features are all nicely visable – from her spats down to the bandage on her arm.  Plus take a look at the coloring detail on her shoes – it’s amazing!

003

She shoots, she scores!

She comes with an optional basket ball!
You can make good use of the figma stand here to create an epic mid-game pose with the basket ball! I haven’t played with a figma in so long – it’s so much fun!

004

Her first extra expression – closed eyes!

It might be hard to tell from the photo, but even her eyelashes are perfectly Kanbaru – they look exactly like the series!

By the way!
The background is from the 1/8th scale Kanbaru figure!

I just quickly grabbed a sample from the production team which is probably still going through some changes, but even so you can see how nicely it works with other figures including figmas!

005

A surprised face and monkey paw!

This face is perfect for when she is talking with Ararararagi – be sure to display the two of them together sometimes! The monkey paw is replaceable in place of her bandaged arm!

006

The Rainy Devil!

This is the reason I just had to do a review of this figma!

This is just incredible, Max Factory!!

To have included this classic option in with the figma! It’s just perfect for fans of the series – you can even recreate the awesome fight scene between her and Arararagi!

She comes with a Rainy Devil face and a yellow raincoat!
Plus she also has a different monkey paw – this one is a closed paw while the previous was an open paw! Just one thing to note though, is that the raincoat might still undergo some changes before release.

009

“Will you still stay then…?”

Ah… I finally got to do it! I really loved this scene and I just had to put it up! xD
I really, really loved this part in the anime – I’ve watched it so many times, and just thinking about it while typing this up brings a tear to my eye!
