Senjogahara Figure Accosted by Invisible Crab

And its unsurprisingly weird.


 That just doesn't look right.

Okay. So, Senjogahara is a fascinating character, from a fascinating series... yet it took a good bit of staring before I realized this wasn't a figure depicting the seconds prior to a tentacle rape scene.
 
Oh, I get it, its a giant invisible crab! To be fair, she does have an invisible crab spirit that haunts her in the story, though that doesn't make it looks any less awkward. Sorry Kotobukiya, the figure looks good, but if I have to explain how a weird figure isn't "weird" then I feel like they're doing it wrong.
 
Well, what do I know, if you're the type to import figures, you've probably got something weirder than this lying around. Interested parties can check out the item here. It'll be released this July, and run you $63.58 pre-shipping.

If they wanted it to be less creapy then they should have added a transparent picture of a crab on the top of the base. Design it to look like the pincers are coming out of the picture and the crab is below her. Short of actually adding a see through crab for her to stand on, and no doubt adding to the price considerably, that would have been the obvious way to go.
 
Still, i have no idea who she is, or what she's from, so what do i know. The lady part of the figure looks cool anyway.

This is more inspirational material for those hentai doujinshis. The figure is gorgeous, though.

That is a cute figure, but I think the one with the falling office supplies from her skirt my be the best one of her so far.

Yeah, I agree that were probably better ways to do this, and that better = more expensive.
 
But yeah, Bakemonogatari is pretty interesting series. Its from the same director and studio that did Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei and Maria Holic (amongst others)
Very stylish, very fast, very weird. I'd suggest learning more ^_^

@John_Martone:  Oh ya, it would have doubled the price easly if they added the crab, but atleast they could have done other thing i suggested; that shouldn't have been too hard. I have never seen the show before so unless someone told me what that claw was for i would have assumed it was some hentai figure.
