Shinobu Oshino by Good Smile Company

Project details

From badass slaughterhouse vampire in Kizumonogatari, to shy and powerless in Bakemonogatari, to sadistic and au naturel in Nisemonogatari. A graceful journey starring Shinobu Oshino, a character baring her fangs at the scent of blood and donuts alike.
Being a 1/8 scale and roughly 12 cm / 4.7″ tall, Shinobu rests on a mountain of flour and sugar topped off with the remnants of her fellow cast.

The various loose parts accompanying Shinobu are all optional; the colorful base, the flight cap and that circular delight that’s usually stuffed in her mouth. Thanks to a rather
flat rear, similar to that of Kanbaru’s, it gives you the freedom to place her on most surfaces without issue.
The single donut is a little trickier to attach but if you tilt it slightly while sliding the peg in rather than pushing it you should be good to go.
Just like with previous figures from the series the base is filled with an abundance of details including accessories and body parts of Bakemonogatari’s major characters. I do believe the single geta visible on the left side at the back of the base belongs to the character responsible for naming Shinobu, Meme Oshino.

While Shinobu Oshino closes the chapter of Bakemonogatari scales from Good Smile Company her past self will eventually return in the future as vampiric entity Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade. As much as I enjoy this rendition of Shinobu I’m equally excited for her future old self to make a comeback.

    I really like this Shinobu figure, out of the whole series of figures this is probably my favorite. A nice way to close the batch given the base includes a bit from everyone.

    She’s really cute; I had thought about ordering her but my unfamiliarity with Bakemonogatari coupled with a ton of other figures getting bumped to this month militated against purchasing her. I’m not sure what the significance of the doughnut motif is, but it’s one of my favorite parts of this figure. Though seeing Nadeko’s hat there but no Nadeko is a bit ominous. This may be an instance where my not having seen the show might be an advantage, since my mind is free to conjure up all sorts of scenarios as to how Shinobu got that hat and what might have happened to its former wearer.

    She gained so much more personality in Nisemonogatari such an enchanting vampire loli ^-^. Well, back then I hadn’t ordered her because I was a huge fan of Shinobu, my decision was rather based on the cool design of the figure.

    As she arrived last week, I was surprised by the quality shading on her dress, she turned out so nice. Its a cool feature that the figure can be taken off her base, you get a lot more possibilities for displaying and making pictures of her.

    I like your pictures with the sweet stuff and the plate, 9,11 and 13 are especially nice =)
