It’s the 3rd figure in the 1/8th scale Bakemonogatari series:

Suruga Kanbaru!

Following on from the figures of Senjougahara and Nadeko from the same series.


The pose is based on the jacket cover of the 3rd BD/DVD of the series, which you can see in the back here.

Of all the different stories in Bakemonogatari I enjoyed the ‘Suruga Monkey’ story the most. Whilst I love Senjougahara’s personality, Kanbaru’s story really brought tears to my eyes… plus the battle scenes were also really impressive. If you haven’t seen it you should definitely try to find the time!


This is how she looks from the back!

That base is huge!!

The Bakemonogatari figure series is becoming very will known for it’s very detailed extras and bases. They’re just getting better and better with every release…

The production quality on this one really makes me want to shed a tear…. ^^;


She looks so entranced by her book…

She has been sculpted with a downward gaze… definitely not something easy to sculpt, but it looks great!

But just what is she reading…?



Kanbaru really loves her BL titles…!

Those who have seen the anime will remember the famous scene where Kanbaru is with Ararararagi-san in the sea of red books.

Even the posing and details of how she holds her book is incredible… those long fingers have a kind of erotic feeling to them.

By the way… for those of you who don’t know what BL is… good for you! :P


Another extra that just has to come with any figure of Kanbaru…

A basketball!

If you compare the ball to the one on the original DVD jacket, you’ll notice even the logo is placed in the exact same place… it has a stunningly realistic design!


Her beautiful long legs!

Those calves… just look at those sexy calves!!  You can also see that even her basket ball shoes’ soles are finely detailed!


Summer clothes!

Those little gaps where you hope to see something really add something extra to the figure! (even if you can’t actually seen anything)

On that note… it’s amazing how much you can actually see in between the gaps between buttons on blouses. Watch out for that girls!


The best shot!(in my opinion)
