Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I never had any siblings, but I’ve often dreamed about having the perfect big brother by my side! Today I’m going to take a look at one ideal candidates for such a brother…! (/ω・\)

Nendoroid Koyomi Araragi!

From the popular anime series ‘Bakemonogatari’ comes a Nendoroid of Koyomi Araragi! He comes with three expressions including his standard disinterested face, a grinning face that looks ready for some mischief and a frightened face that fans are sure to remember from the series!

Optional parts include his school bag as well as various different sticking-up hair parts, as his hair would often show his emotions! The sword he borrowed from Shinobu ‘Kokorowatari’ and a special base made to look like a road are also both included, allowing for all sorts of situations from the series!

Oooohhh!!! (*´▽`*) Araragi-kuuun!!

The main character who also provides comic relief and silly lines throughout the series is finally joining the Nendoroids! ♪

He is wearing his Naoetsu Private High School uniform sculpted in lovely detail, and his hair also looks great in Nendoroid size – it even covers his left eye!

I love the way you can see him peeking out between the hair! ♡

His sidelong glance has captured my heart! (。`・ω・´。)

Optional parts include the school bag you can see him holding here, as well as a rectangular base made to look like a road! The characters are often seen walking to school along a road in the series, and this allows you to display them doing so even in Nendoroid form! Just place your heroine of choice beside him! ♪

“Hey, Araragi-senpai! Fancy meeting you here!”

For example, you can display him with the previously released Nendoroid Suruga Kanbaru as they bump into each other on the way to school! ♡

– Nendoroid 3-Panel Manga Time! –


“Hmm… is that who I think it is?”


“I’d recognise that backpack anywhere!”



~ END ~

As you can see, he comes with mischievous expression, ideal for displaying him with Mayoi-chan! The way the nose is done is so unique… A very rare expression for a Nendoroid! (゚A゚;)

(・∀・) “He also comes with two different front hair parts!”

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

(・∀・) “Araragi has such fun expressions that we wanted to give everyone the option to see his full expression as well, so a version with his hair not covering his face is also included!”

I love the hair covering his eyes, but I’m glad we have the choice to see his full expressions as well! I also see the sticking up hair on his head has a mind of its own just like in the series! ♡

(*´Д`) “Yep! It goes all read and swells up like this!”

(´-`).。oO( Chanshuu-senpai is suddenly breathing rather heavily…)

(・∀・) “There are really an endless number of uses for this expression, but most of all it can be used to make some fun poses with the heroines!”
I believe he has one other expression as well…? ((o(´∀`)o))

(・∀・) “Yep! He also comes with a frightened expression!”

Yay! Gahara-san!!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

(・∀・) “Yep! You can recreate this famous scene with Senjougahara!”

The expressions are all so lovely… but this one really brings his character out for me! Even his teeth are perfect! ♪

I love it!!! ♡

(・∀・) “A special jagged piece of hair is also included to match the expression!”

I can’t wait to display him in all sorts of fun ways with the Bakemonogatari girls! I also want to see him together with Nendoroid Shinobu Oshino! ★

(・∀・) “Ah, speaking of Shinobu…”

Is this sword what I think it is?!

(・∀・) “‘The Kokorowatari sword is also included with Araragi-kun!”


You can even enjoy Araragi-kun in combat mode with this! ♡

(・∀・) “There are so many different sides of Araragi-kun to enjoy with the Nendoroid! She’s also so much fun to display with the others – it brings out the Bakemonogatari universe beautifully!”

The former vampire in Nendoroid size! ♡

He’ll be up for preorder from the 10th June 2014! ♡

By the way, don’t forget that Nendoroid Oshino Shinobu who is included with the Nisemonogatari Premium Item BOX Set is currently up for order!
