Here comes the Senjougahara Hitagi 1/7 PVC figure by Alter!! She is beautiful! Personally I think this is the best looking Senjougahara Hitagi figure so far. She looks better than the GSC or the Kotobukiya one but she is also the most expensive one.

9,800 yen before tax is really scary for me. And the worst part is she is coming out in August. 3 Miku, 2 Angel Beats!, and some figma that I want are also coming out in August. I know Alter is going to delay her to September or even December anyway, but still, 9,800 yen is pretty scary for me. ='(

By the way, does anyone know when will the next Bakemonogatari light novel come out?

Starting as a hit novel and then making its way to an even bigger hit as an anime series, Bakemonogatari is still going strong! And now the girl possessed by a crab spirit and cursed with weightlessness, Hitagi Senjyogahara, is coming as an amazing new PVC figure from Alter!

Taking its inspiration from the illustration used as a Blu-ray/DVD jacket design, this version of Hitagi features an incredibly detailed staircase base, with Hitagi’s trademark stationary strewn about in profusion, and Hitagi herself is looking both strong, stern and lovely with her hair blown in the wind and a beautiful expression on her face. Painted with light tones to evoke the characteristic world of Bakemonogatari, this figure perfectly captures the essence of the anime’s unique and nuanced universe.
