Shinobu OshinoShinobu Oshino

While watching Bakemonogatari, I thought about the Shinobu craze and just couldn't see it. She was rather boring and lifeless. But now I'm watching Nise, and seen the 4th episode (yep, the bath one) I, too, have an appreciation for Shinobu Oshino.

Well then, I think it's time to find out which is the ultimate Shinobu! One or two of 'em aren't out yet, but they still count. Also, I'm including the famous redjuice GK because so many people like it. I didn't include some prize figures because most of them are unremarkable.

Alter's and Kotobukiya's are so similar; which one do you guys think is best of the two?

I literally just picked up the Kotobukiya Shinobu today and opened her up 10 minutes ago... LOVE HER! Luckily I found her for only $62 at a local store. That face gives me all kinds of feels haha. I do like the GSC figure as well but I don't have the money for it. After comparing the Alter and Kotobukiya versions I prefer the Koto one more, I feel like her dress is flaring up too much in the Alter version, not because I dislike fan service or whatever, I just think the flow is more natural in the Koto version. Seeing her without a donut and in the black dress makes me excited to watch more. This is a new show to me, having only watched Bakemonogatari, but I'm sure as I get deeper into it I'll end up biting the bullet and getting as many of these as I can!

GSC and Banpresto. Eventually voted Banpresto because the GSC one is mainly because of my food bias :P If it has food (or books), it appeals to me. If I had to remove that bias, the Banpresto one would be most appealing, but at over 100,000yen I can never afford.

Voted for GSC because it was the first figure from ~Monogatari that I got ^///^
It's also the figure with the pose that I like the most out of all of them, plus the base is amazing!

I also have the Taito one and it's very nice for a game prize ^3^
I'm looking forward to getting the Banpresto ~Sofa edition (one day! sooner or later I will get her!)

PS The GK one looks awesome *-* If they make a PVC of it - I will be hooked!

I love the GSC and Alter ones, especially GSS becuase of the base. I agree with you that the Koto's faces look weird.

Banpresto really did a wonderful job representing her cute yet devious figure...

Also I love the GSC Shinobu because she's super cute but also because the base of the figure is really detailed and amazing! The Garage kit is beautiful too!

I tend to prefer doughnut-less Shinobus (even though it's hypocritical of me, since most of my Shinobu GKs have doughtnuts), so I think ITEM #236488 is my favorite. She's very smooth and soft-looking, which fits her well.

I'm hoping we'll get some of her in her black outfit from Tsuki by Summer WonFes.

If we're counting Kiss Shot, though, ITEM #98681 is far, far, far and away my favorite piece of Shinobu merchandise. I don't think anything will ever compare.

From the ones that are out right now, my favs is the Banpresto cuz it depicts Shinbo's personaitly well, that's the Vampire queen I love XD. Ahhh, I can't wait till I get the Red Ver. one, love her in red ^-^

AnnieAzura (3 years ago) #2593902then get taito or banpresto since you like the devious face. cuz all the others are pretty cutesy looking. personally, i dont care if there's fanservice as long as it's not obviously out of character. and for monogatari, it's never out of character to be fanservice-y. we've seen her naked in a tub with araragi already :P

Just 'cause she's a little fanservicy doesn't mean I'm not getting her, lol

Plus, the Banpresto one is way too fucking expensive.

Knight-Hart (3 years ago) #2593892I mean, I like the idea of a devious face for her, but I'm not at all a fan of Koto's execution. Both faces just look weird to me. The Banpresto couch one is a much better face than Koto's, imo. I love Alter's face, it's very faithful to the anime, but I wish her skirt wasn't billowing so much. Too fanservice-y.
