Let me start off by saying…

This figure is simply amazing!!

This is the unpainted prototype from WonHobby 17…

It’s now been hand-painted by GSC’s production team…

…and she looks fantastic!! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

Let me repeat once more…
This figure is simply amazing!!

Obviously GSC always works to the best of their ability to bring everyone the very best quality products… but this figure… this figure is on a completely new level!! She looks exactly like the original illustration, every part of her is sculpted in such a beautiful way and the paintwork is exquisite!

The moment I saw her she left such a strong impression on me!! I hope I can somehow convey that feeling to everyone reading the blog with my photos!! I’ll be doing a 2-day review of her to make sure I cover as much of Tsukihi-chan as possible!

From Nisemonogatari:
1/8th Scale Tsukihi Araragi!

From the popular light novel series with an equally popular anime adaption, ‘Nisemonogatari’, comes a 1/8th scale PVC figure of Tsukihi Araragi!

The figure is based on the pose seen on the cover illustration of the 4th volume of the Blu-ray & DVD: ‘Tsukihi Phoenix: Part 1’, which features a delicate, innocent looking Tsukihi in beautiful Japanese clothes. The figure also includes the jungle gym seen in the original illustration, which acts as Tsukihi’s figure stand.

She’s unbelievably cute!!

If this isn’t cute then I don’t know what is!! If anyone dares to say that this isn’t cute, I’ll happily stay up all night and fight for her! (`・ω・´)

I honestly think I’d be happy to get this figure just for her expression…

Just look at her lovely hips!

Plus if you have a close look you might even see a little more!

You can’t directly see her panties or skin as everything is completely covered up, and yet she’s still so sexy!! This is the art of sculpting in action!! She’s not directly letting anyone see anything, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be seen!! I’m fairly certain that recreating this feeling so naturally on a figure was no simple task!

My reviews normally show one or two photos of the entire figure and then focus on smaller areas, but this time the whole figure looks so great that I had to keep taking more and more shots from different angles! ( ̄ー ̄)

She looks great from a low angle too!

She is posed climbing a jungle gym, so this is actually a very appropriate angle! You might not ever get the chance to see a scene like this elsewhere, but Tsukihi-chan will be happy to show you it to you whenever you like!! (There is no way the 3D world will beat the 2D at this rate!!)

I have to say that I really love this photo – you get a good view of the curves of her body, a nice peek at her thigh due to the bent leg, and the jungle gym creates an interesting effect that kind of hides parts of Tsukihi-chan out of sight! Even though you can’t see her expression, she still looks incredible!!

Displayed together with the illustration!

This is the Blu-ray cover illustration for ‘Tsukihi Phoenix: Part 1’! You can see here what a beautiful rendition the figure version really is! I know I’ve focused a bit too much on her sexy side, but whether you like her sexier side or the cuter side – this Tsukihi-chan is sure to impress any fans!

I still can’t believe that this single illustration was transformed into this adorable, sexy, faultless figure!! It’s incredible!! 。・゚・(ノД`)・゚・。

But I’m sure that many of you may be wondering why she is in a red kimono, when in the anime she was wearing a green kimono! Worry not! (`・ω・´)

An anime-version kimono will also be available!

Oooh!! The green kimono!! (*゚∀゚)=3

Those of you who only watched the anime may find this outfit more familiar! The green version will be a GSC Online Shop exclusive!

Pink: Standard Sales
Green: Good Smile Online Shop Only

It’ll be so hard to pick which one I prefer, but Tsukihi-chan fans can of course grab both of them if they want!!

A very elegant green kimono!

I still can’t get over the fact that even though absolutely everything is covered up, she somehow still manages to look so delicious!! I guess it’s just the overall combination of her body’s curves and the lovely pose! Although I also get the feeling that the position of the creases in her kimono have something to do with it too!

I’m quite sure that in real life the hip-line wouldn’t be so nicely visible when wearing a kimono, but on the figure it looks great and doesn’t feel out of place at all – in fact it looks perfectly natural to me! I suppose that’s one of the many differences between the 2D and the 3D world!

From Nisemonogatari:
