My birthday isn't until the 20th but I was given my best b-day gift early. GoodSmile Company's Hitagi Senj�gahara from Bakemonogatari!!!

Senj�gahara is arguably the second most important character in the series as the main love interest of the series protagonist Araragi. If you are curious about the various supplies falling out of her skirt, at the start of the series she is cursed by a crab spirit. The crab spirit stole her weight, so in order to not float away at the slightest breeze she has to weigh herself down using supplies found around her home and school-- She is also rather skilled at the use of these objects as weapons. Araragi eventually helps remove the curse (that is the theme of the series, Araragi meets girl with some kind of curse, Araragi helps save girl, girl falls in love with him to some degree). It is a really great series despite seeming like your standard harem fluff.

Here she is unboxed, some what difficult to put together considering the directions were in Japanese (obviously).

Her standard setting is from the scene where she empties her skirt of all the various supplies weighing her down. The second option is normal skirt with twin staplers at the ready.

As with all GoodSmile Products, the figure is excellently sculpted and has an insane amount of detail.

Conveniently placed protractor is convenient.

Probably the best display angle considering the figures line of sight.

Did I mention the crazy amount of detail?


Ever since I first saw this figure was coming out I have wanted it... badly. Bakemonogatari is one of my all time favorite series. It is quirky, smart, funny, scary, animated beautifully, and has a really fun story to tell. I will some day (much like K-On) want to have figures of all of the characters, and now that I have Senj�gahara I can start looking for a Tsubasa Hanekawa figure, she is my second favorite character from the series and currently my desktop wallpaper. So yeah, great series, great figure, BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER.
