Bakemonogatari, despite its perplexing oddness, has proven very popular: popular enough to warrant figure series from 3 major companies along with tons of prize figures and offerings from lower-tier manufacturers. The (almost) entire female cast (along with one guy!) is also getting figmas, and at Wonder Festival they announced Hanekawa and Araragi’s two sisters. That means only the vampire loli Shinobu is left–unless, of course, she gets two figmas: one tiny and harmless, one large and busty.
Hanekawa popped up in the NicoNico broadcast, which of course means that her official preview would be soon. She comes with pretty much everything you’d expect: cat ears, her signature glasses, a book, a braid instead of twintails, and alternate short hair. That’s a lot of hair options, that are hopefully interchangeable–short hair with cat ears would be so adorable! She has three very cute faces: a happy face, a winking one, and a pissed-off yelling face… that is still adorable. She’ll retail for ¥3,500 with an August release, and should be going up this Friday.
