Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (gsc_kahotan)

Cronuts are like a little taste from heaven for me! I love the fact that new types of donuts are always being made! (๑´ㅂ`๑) *nomnomnom*

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

Nendoroid Shinobu Oshino!

Following on from the previously released ‘Bakemonogatari Premium Item BOX’ comes the ‘Nisemonogatari Premium Item BOX’ which will include the much-awaited Nendoroid Shinobu Oshino! She has been sculpted wearing her white one-piece dress as well as her large straw hat, which can also be removed.

She comes with three different expressions including her standard face, a content expression for enjoying her donuts as well as a darker, grinning expression. She also comes with various different donuts to munch on! The demon sword ‘Kokorowatari’ is also included, faithfully matching the impressive length from the series!

She’s lovely!!(*´▽`*)

The iron-blooded, hot-blooded, cold-blooded vampire! ♡

The contrast between the red ribbons and the white one-piece dress catch your eyes very quickly!

From the back you get a lovely look at her open back and shoulder blades!
I couldn’t help but gently run my finger along her back…!

Her large straw hat is also included, and it suits the one-piece dress beautifully!

You can even see the weaving on the hat! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ
The blond hair curling around the bottom is a great rendition of Shinobu’s hair!

(・∀・) “The hat can of course be removed too!”

We’re joined today by the figure’s planner, Chanshuu-senpai!

(・∀・) “Those of you who think Shinobu looks best without her hat have that choice with the Nendoroid. Like this for instance!”

This expression combined with the donut parts is too cute!! (*´Д`)

(・∀・) “It’s really adorable isn’t it…? You can really tell how much enjoyment she is getting from stuffing her cheeks with delicious donut!! She can hold donuts in both her hands to really show how much she loves them!”

By the way, when Shinobu was first put up on the GSC site she only came with this eating expression and the standard smiling expression from above, right…?

(・∀・) “That’s right. The third expression was being saved to be revealed in the July edition of Monthly Hobby Japan!”

The cover of which features an amazing MG Full Armor Unicorn Gundam (Red Color Ver.) – you can’t miss it! The article on Shinobu looks like this! っ(σ・∀・)σ

On the right hand side you’ll see not only Shinobu’s other expression, but on the bottom you can see prototype photos of Nendoroid Koyomi Araragi!! ((o(´∀`)o))

(・∀・) “As those who read over the weekend will know, Shinobu’s third expression is none other than this grinning expression!”

Oooooohhhh!!! (*´Д`)

She looks so cunning with this grin on her face! Those sharp eyes and confident smile are more than enough to be my heart racing!

The previous expressions suited the cute, loli side of her character perfectly, while this brings out the other side of her just as well! This is the side people may accept as a vampire a little more! <●><●>

Bent legs are also included for a little more dynamic poses!♡

(・∀・) “This expression captures Shinobu’s determined side! I’d love for her to look down at me and call me ‘Omae-sama’ with this expression!”

Me too!!

(・∀・) “Plus she also comes with her impressively long sword, Kokorowatari!”

This allows you to pose her is much more epic poses from the series!

(・∀・) “Whether you prefer the cute Shinobu or the more serious Shinobu – the Nendoroid caters to both!”

More info and photos with the face were added to the GSC product page today as well: Nendoroid Shinobu Oshino

Personally I think a mix of the two looks pretty good as well.!(ノ´▽`)ノ

Grinning expression + Donuts and Hat! ♡

If this Shinobu-chan came up and stole my donut I would be happy to relinquish it to her… I’d be happy to do anything for her! I would even be willing to buy her some pies or muffins that aren’t one discount!! (`・ω・´)

(・∀・) “Let me explain to everyone how they can get their hands on this Nendoroid! She is included with the Nisemonogatari Premium Item BOX on sale from the 21st November 2014!
