Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’ve always admired people who have awesome surnames like ‘Senjyogahara’. Whenever I see an epic surname in an anime, manga or novel I note it down for potential use in the future! I’m sure those like me with an overly standard surname can understand this… at least to a certain degree!

Today we’re taking a look at a Nendoroid included in the Bakemonogatari Premium Item Box that will be released on the 21st November…

Nendoroid Hitagi Senjyogahara!

Gahara-san!!! ♥♥

Just looking at her with that cunning sideways glance…
I can’t help but let our a little excited giggle!! (*´Д`)

This Nendoroid is only included with the Bakemonogatari Premium Item Box and isn’t going to be available as a separate item! You can find details about the Premium Item Box here: http://bookclub.kodansha.co.jp/kodansha-box/topics/nishioproject/

I’ll also be taking a look at some of the other items that are included with the Premium Item Box! Let’s start off with the packaging!

I-It’s a lot bigger than I expected!!

Let’s open it up and have a look inside!

Bakemonogatari Premium Item Box Set Contents

· “Hitagi Figure” short story by Nisio Isin. *Not shown in the photo
· Nendoroid Hitagi Senjyogahara
· 3x clear posters illustrated by VOFAN, Akio Watanabe and Hajime Ueda.

All sorts of goodies to enjoy!! ♡

This is how the packaging looks from the other side!

Anyway, let’s get back to reviewing the Nendoroid! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

This pose is my favorite!
Posed hiding a craft knife behind her back with a sly giggle! (*´ェ`*)

This is how the packaging looks!

So many different pieces of stationery as well as ponytail head parts!!

Scissors, craft-knife, triangles and a stapler! All of them amazingly detailed! This should give you a good idea as to just how small they are! ♪

The stationery allows you to recreate this famous scene in Nendoroid size! The skirt for this pose is actually also a separate part!

The stationery bits have transparent circular connectors that allow them to connect onto the special skirt! ε=(。・д・。)

Hitagi comes with quite a large amount of delicate parts so be careful when attaching and removing them! Always try to press the parts in by holding onto the biggest piece of the part, like that circled in red here.

Next up we have the ponytail parts!

Ponytail Gahara-san is adorable!! (*´▽`*)
This pose is a ‘I don’t have much time to talk with you, Araragi-kun” pose!

I’m sure some how you would have realized, but in that last photo…

The stand has a different shape any usual Nendoroid stands!

It connects into the back of her hair instead of her back!

This change of design was thought up by none other than Shuu-chan-senpai!
What made you decide on this change?

(・∀・) “One of the most important poses she can take is the famous stationery falling out the skirt pose… and seen that pose shows her back we didn’t want the stand to be sticking out!”

Ah-hah! That makes sense! (`・ω・´)

I’ll be honest and say it was a little strange at first… but after a little while I got used to it and actually found it very easy to use!

She comes with different bent arms and legs too… allowing for all sorts of different poses! So much fun!! I tried to pose her in the famous ‘Shaft Angle’ by twisting her neck to the side a little… it kind of works!! ( -ノェ-)コッソリ

The first of the Bakemonogatari Nendoroids… with more to come!
