Time to find out who guessed correctly…!


I’m sure many of you knew exactly who it was… she was even displayed during WonFes! (`・ω・´)ゞ


The 4th figure in the 1/8th scale Bakemonogatari series: 、

Tsubasa Hanekawa!

The previous figures from the series include Hitagi Senjougahara, Nadeko Sengoku and Suruga Kanbaru. Now the ‘girl enchanted by the cat’, Tsubasa Hanekawa is set to join them!

First you need to take a look at this picture…

The pose is again based on a DVD jacket image!

This is the front jacket of the 4th volume of the DVD/BD series, ‘Tsubasa Cat’. As always, you can see how incredibly close the figure is to the original illustration! That downward gaze is beautiful!


Let’s take a look from another side!

Keeping with the previous figures in the series, all the small extra parts and the stand are all beautifully detailed.

The school desk and chair, plus her shoe, show this off nicely!

The desk and chair are in fact made from 3D data, so they are disturbingly similar to a real table and chair! We’ll take a closer look at them at a later stage!


Now from another angle!

You can finally see the other sides of the illustration that were never visible before… such is the power of figures!! This picture was taken at a slightly higher angle than the illustration was at.

I have to say that the way she is sitting on the table on her knees creates a really sexy pose!!


Turn her a little bit clockwise!

These photos really give Tsubasa a nice mature feeling. It’s amazing how much she changes with just a little change in the angle of the picture!

She really is beautiful!

Her big shiny eyes look amazing on the figure, and the round glasses only add to her charm!

Alright, now it’s time onto some more risque photos!

First up… her finger tips!

Figures from anime often follow the ‘no wrinkle’ method to create a more anime-style look, but Tsubasa’s hands have a nice realistic touch to them. I also love the way her pinky is slightly apart from the other fingers!


Those are… big…!

And completely unrelated, but the wrinkles in her clothes are also really impressive!


My personal favorite shot!

Everything just adds up to such a sexy pose… from the missing right shoe to the slightly opened up legs… plus the hand holding her skirt down….

It’s what you’d see if she was in front of you on the stairs or escalator! (*゚∀゚)=3

If you try hard enough you might even get to see a little bit more!! :P


The cellphone she used in the series!

Of course it even comes with the kitty strap attached. Just look at the detail!


Cat ear parts are also included!

They simply replace her normal fringe part – so you can pick whichever version you prefer! The cats on the desk are the cats included with figma Aya Kagura: School Uniform version. You can add them in for an even cuter effect!!


Tsubasa-nee with no glasses!

Ooh… she looks even more mature now! You can also remove the glasses on the normal hair – so the choice is really entirely up to you.


Which means you can have cat ears with glasses too!!

This figure series really does put a lot of work into the extra and stand!

This time the stand is a table and desk…

Just look at the quality!

It really looks like it’s made out of wood! There is no way this was hand painted!

But then… how was it painted…?

It’s printed on with a printer!

This new printer can print directly onto figures!
Unfortunately if the area is too thick or has too many curves it won’t work nicely… but for things like the chair above, it’s perfect!

Ever since I saw them working on Senjougahara at the factory in China… I always wonder about these things… this Bakemonogatari figure series must be driving the production team insane…! ^^;
