A girl and a road roller! Cool!

While I tried to watch Nisenmonogatari on Crunchyroll I decided that it was not really my kind of show. Maybe it was because I had not watched the original, or because I expected it do something different than it did.. Truth be told I only watched one episode of it, however thanks to Mikatan's preview of a new figure; Karen Araragi by Good Smile Company I may give the show a second chance.

The photos tell the story best, but what can I say? We have a cute girl who is fully clothed, yet looking very attractive by all of the subtle ways her clothing is arranged. She sits atop a giant yellow and grey road roller. The clash of cute and machine reminds me of last seasons Girls and Panzer and kind of has the same effect of somehow making the girl cuter, while appealing to auto and heavy machinery loving collectors at the same time.

Really there is a lot to like here! What do you think Nisenmonogatari fans? Do you want to add her in your collection? Should I give this series a second try? Please let me know in the comments below.
