Nendoroid Mayoi Hachikuji

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m pretty good with maps, but when it comes to figuring out the right transfers for trains I tend to have a lot of trouble. I don’t think I’d ever reach my destination if it wasn’t for the navigation apps I use! I thank all the people who develop those handy programs for us!!

Anyway, today I’m going to introduce everyone to…

Nendoroid Mayoi Hachikuji ♪


From the popular anime series ‘Bakemonogatari’ comes a Nendoroid of Mayoi Hachikuji! She comes with various expressions including a winking expression and a cute expression pulling a tongue to show her innocent and playful personality!

Her giant trademark backpack is also included, and it’s just as big as you’d expect even in Nendoroid size! Other characters from Bakemonogatari are also planned to join the line-up soon, so she’ll also have some others to display by her side soon!

It’s been quite awhile since I gave everyone the little sneak preview on the blog! Araragi0kun’s best friend and partner, the cute loli beautiful young lady, Mayoi-chan!


Her winking expression is adorable! ♥♡♥

Her twintails are fitted with ball-joints allowing you to move them around into whatever pose is required! (*´▽`*)

Plus the this famous scene can also be reenacted… such a cute face!! ♪


Aahhhhh!! (*´Д`)

Who could possibly resist such an adorable expression!? Just looking at her makes my brain play all her popular lines in my head!

Another very important trademark item of her’s has been faithfully transformed into Nendoroid size…!


Her giant pink rucksack!!

The cute little birdy face and even her name tag are sculpted with great detail!


(ΦωΦ)…
Can you tell what kind of pose this is…?

Mayoi-chan can be posed crouching down!


Ta-da! You might think you can see them, but you can’t!

Combined with the tongue-pulling expression she looks like this! ♪

Yay, yay!! (*´▽`*)!

Ahh… I wish I could take her home with me today… I wish I could take her home with me today! (said twice to stress the importance)

(・∀・) “I know how you feel… she’s so cute!”

While I was getting all excited Otanaka-shi from the planning team showed up out of nowhere!

(・∀・) “Hachikuji is the 2nd Bakemonogatari Nendoroid, but…”

Eh? Second? Oh right! The others were all scale figures or Nendoroid petites! I could have sworn we had more Nendoroids from the series!

This is the Mayoi Hachikuji released in 2011… she was far too sexy looking for her age! I call foul play!

(・∀・) “Now that I think about it, moving from scale figure to Nendoroid Petite to Nendoroid is a fairly rare case. It was all thanks to Kodansaha and Seikeisha that we were able to continue more with the series!

I’ve heard stories that when the publisher’s were absolutely amazed by the amount of zeal you put into the panties on Hitagi Senjougahara’s figure… to the point that you became a bit of a legend! But that’s getting away from the point! Let’s head back to the Bakemonogatari Nendoroid series!

The very first of which was….
Nendoroid Hitagi Senjougahara!


She can even be posed in this famous pose that was also used for the scale figure! This Nendoroid is included as a part of the Bakemonogatari Premium Item BOX which will be released on the 21st November! ♪

As soon as I’m able to get my hands on a sample I’ll be sure to get a review up for everyone! (`・ω・´)

(・∀・) “As I was trying to say earlier, Hachikuji is the second Nendoroid in the series but she doesn’t come second in cuteness by any means!”

She also comes with ‘thumbs-up’ hand parts to create the signature pose from the Mayoi Snail OP! ★

(・∀・) “You can recreate quite a number of poses seen in the anime series! There are all sorts of exchangeable parts ensuring loads of playability!”

These hand parts are actually included to pose her holding onto the straps of the rucksack, but placed at an angle like this they make a kitty pose! ♪

I also love the inclusion of bent legs with any Nendoroid as they allow for all sorts of interesting poses! But without an Araragi-kun Nendoroid some of the poses I want to make seem a bit pointless… Otanaka-shi! When can we expect an Araragi-kun?!

(・∀・) “I agree it would allow for so many poses if Araragi-kun was released… but we have to get through all the heroines first! (。◕∀◕。)”

Aww… there is no way I can complain when you get such a sparkle in your eyes while saying that! (´Д`;)

The next Nendoroid in the series will be Suruga Kanbaru! Based on the logical order… I think we know who to expect after that too! ((o(´∀`)o))

A huge rucksack and an adorable moe fang!
Right by your side in Nendoroid form! ♪

1/8th Scale Mayoi Hachikuji

Tasshi! What are you doing!?

001

You’re looking way too close! Stop staring at the poor girl!

Tasshi here was in charge of coloring for today’s figure!
He is just admiring his fine work! (I hope! :P)

The 5th figure in the 1/8th scale Bakemonogatari series:

Mayoi Hachikuji!

She is yet another heroine from the popular anime Bakemonogatari, following on from Hitagi Senjougahara, Nadeko Sengoku, Suruga Kanbaru and Tsubasa Hanekawa is ‘ the girl who was puzzled by the snail’ – Mayoi Hachikuji!

Take a look at the photo above and then compare below…

15

A perfect 3D rendition of the illustration!

It’s unbelievable… the more you look at it the more it just looks as if the illustration has just jumped out into the 3D world!

As before, she is also based on the BD/DVD package!
To be more specific, the original illustration was the front cover of the second volume of the anime – “Mayoi Snail”.

004

This is how she looks from the back!

Of course you can’t have Mayoi without her giant bird backpack. The little bear in side pocket can be taken out and replaced with something else!

005

A look from the other side!

Even the name sticker has been written out in the exact same font! You can also see the giant paw sticking out the bag, as well as the little rabbit patch on the side!

17

An embarrassed expression holding a ribbon in her mouth!

Such an adorable childish cuteness mixed with a wonderful adult charm!
Look around the ribbon at her slightly open shirt!

006

Plus wonderful thighs!

I was just thinking during the Azunyan figure the other day that these half-way up socks might becoming more and more popular – Mayoi also has them!

Those calves just make you want to reach out and touch them!  。・゚・(ノД`)・゚・。

You can even make out her figure nicely over her clothes!!

007

Her right shoe can be removed!

The package featured her shoe half falling off, which is great – but you also have the choice to remove it completely for a slightly different feeling!

008

This is how she looks from the top!

We normally always only get a look of figures from the front – that’s generally how they’re displayed… but sometimes it’s interesting to take a look at them from the top!
The ribbon and loose show stand out so much more!
(I’m sure at least some people will agree with me :P)

010

The map can be placed wherever!

As you can see it’s painted as a real map – the details are amazing, both on the map and Mayoi’s beautiful curves!
By the way!

Some of you might be thinking something like that! So was I in fact… but…

Her backpack is the stand!

Although because of that…
The price will be lower than the other figures in the series!

It’ll make it a little cheaper for everyone trying to grab the entire figure series!

012

The backpack can be removed as so!

Which also lets us see her back!

Her petite little back has been sculpted just as carefully as the front! There is a little bumpy bit where the backpack connects, but there wasn’t anything that could do about that – I shouldn’t bother anyone too much!

The second in the Bakemonogatari 1/8th scale series:

Nadeko Sengoku is going on resale!
She will go on resale on the same day Mayoi is released – if you missed out on her the first time around, be sure to grab her this time!

Anyways, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!  (・∀・)ノ゛
