ZOMFG Nisemonogatari in January, so PLEASE license Bakemonogatari!
Holy SHIT, YES!!!!!!!! Time to bust out some hallucinogenic drugs, and get ready to pause the video a lot, because Nisemonogatari will be creating visual orgasms in January of this year!!!!! I have absolutely no idea what this series is about, other than that it has to do with Araragi’s sisters I guess. I don’t know whether it’s a sequel, prequel, or spin-off, but I don’t care. After all, it IS Shaft, and it IS related to Bakemonogatri, so it’ll be awesome whether you want it to or not.
Of course seeing that it’s been almost 4 years since Bakemonogatari was aired in Japan my hopes of it ever being licensed continue to fade away. Yes, the the show is VERY Japanese, a lot of the humor and wordplay is lost in translation, and it’s really weird. However, based on it’s popularity, I think it’d sell just fine. But then again, maybe it’s popularity is the issue; it may be to expensive to get the rights to, and no one wants to take a risk on such an odd show. But who cares, Nisemonogatari exists and January can’t come soon enough.
