Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m a firm believer that fried eggs need to have salt… and while we’re on the subject of food, my best dressing for salads is a Caesar dressing!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Tsubasa Hanekawa! ♡

From the popular anime series ‘Bakemonogatari’ comes a Nendoroid of the girl charmed by a cat, Tsubasa Hanekawa! She comes with three expressions including her standard smiling face, an upset face perfect for he role as class representative as well as a cute embarrassed face.

Attachable cat ears are also included allowing you to pose her in her possessed form, and a black and white cat are also both included to display by her side!

Hanekawa-san!! (*´▽`*)

To Araragi-kun, Hanekawa-san is ‘a symbol of fear, worship, salvation, despair, trust, hatred and ever so slightly ecchi.’ Now that she is in Nendoroid size I’m sure he would have to add that she is a symbol of cuteness too!!

– Posed waving at Araragi-kun! –

It wouldn’t be Hanekawa-san without her book, which she can be posed holding just like in the series! You can pose her going to the book store with Araragi-kun to buy a reference book!

I really wish I had the time to watch through the series again!!

Her adorable hair accessories and rather generous bust are of course both faithfully sculpted! ((o(´∀`)o))

This rather special item from the series too! ★

That’s right! Her cellphone is included! I think that phone scene was the single most memorable phone scene in any series! ♡

I really loved the simple designs of older cellphones! ( -ノェ-)

Anyway, let’s take a look at her expression parts! Up until now has been her gentle smiling face, but she also comes with an angry expression! ♪

Looking at this I wish Hanekawa-san would come up and get angry with me! I want her to be angry with me!!! Seeing this also makes me wish I could pose her together with Araragi-kun… (/ω・\)チラッ

Ah… what a lovely expression!! (*´Д`)

Her smile is also amazing, but I love it when cute girls come with a serious angry expression like this one! I can’t explain why but it’s just so cute!!

Ooh? There are two others that are also coming to enjoy Hanekawa-san’s cute angry face! (゚∀゚)

A white and black cat are both included as optional parts to display beside her!!

T-They’re so cute!! I’m generally not great with animals… but when they’re figures I can relax and play with them all I want! (`・ω・´)

Hanekawa-san also seems to enjoy playing with them! ♥

The last two photos actually featured another optional part too! Nendoroid Hanekawa-san comes with sitting parts! The parts are made up of a special alternate skirt as well as bent legs! (。・д・。)

The pose along with the way the skirt is folding up at the edges actually makes a bit of a sexy pose… not to mention that special parts are included to pose the kitty clinging to her back!

There is a small transparent plate with a hole in one side – simply slide the side without a hole into the body of the kitty, and then connect the hole side into the shoulder joint! You can recreate a pose similar to that of the original Bakemonogatari key visual! (*´Д`)=з

(・∀・) “There is still more fun to be had with this Nendoroid!”

We’re joined by Otanaka-shi from the planning team!

(・∀・) “It wouldn’t be Hanekawa-san if she didn’t include cat ears!”

Yippie! A cat-eared glasses girl!!

(・∀・) “… Yippie! The ears are an Alice-band-type that connect between the two hair parts allowing for easy attachment and removal!”

Ah, the same design that was used for Nendoroid Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi and the Nendoroid After Parts 02!

(・∀・) “Of course her glasses can also be removed!”

– Posed demanding her glasses back –

(・∀・) “She also comes with an embarrassed expression which works incredibly well with the cat ears!”

Oooh!! (*´▽`*)

(・∀・) “Embarrassed with cat ears… actually a rather rare scene for Hanekawa-san!”

The same pose but with her eyes looking away give off a whole different feeling! There are so many ways to play around with this Nendo! ♥

You can even combine the cat ears with the angry expression…!

… … … !!

(・∀・) “The cat ears match up nicely with all of her expressions… there really are so many options to try out and enjoy!”

Various optional parts and expressions to make your very own school council president!

Nendoroid Tsubasa Hanekawa! ♡

She’ll be up for preorder next week from the 18th March! I can’t wait for her to release so I can play around till my heart’s content! (*´Д`)=з

(・∀・) “Ah, speaking of release… in the Monthly Hobby Japan magazine that releases on the 25th March you can get the latest info on Nendoroid Oshino Shinobu!”

Oooh!! I wonder what kind of info will be revealed…? ((o(´∀`)o))

(・∀・) “Nendoroid Oshino Shinobu will be included with the Nisemonogatari Premium BOX. You’ll find a lot more info in the Hobby Japan magazine, so don’t miss out!”
