12 Days of Christmas 2011 – #10 – Monogatari + Shaft = True

Saying that I was like Arararagi (woops, I stuttered) in the video when I saw the announcement of not only the movie Kizumonogatari, but also that they were going for a TV-adaptation of Nisemonogatari, is an understatement.

This is one of the moments this year that truly was “oh my god oh my god”, making everything else that day pale in comparison. Being a fan of Bakemonogatari and Shaft, I cannot wait until this winter season when Nisemonogatari will air. With its sharp and witty dialogue, lovely visuals and direction, Bakemonogatari was a show unlike any other. The only thing they did in it was to talk. And when you manage to make 15 episodes with only talking, something has been done the right way.

So, let us hope that Nisemonogatari will be as great as Bakemonogatari. Studio Shaft deserves another blockbuster such as the previously mentioned Bakemonogatari and Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica from earlier this year. In less than a month, 7th January, we will find out.

    Boy, am I hyped for Nise/Kizumonogatari! Bakemonogatari was a masterpiece!
    It was cleverly written, beautifully animated, witty, intriguing and the revelations regarding the girls, (particularly Senjougahara) really caught me off guard! This show was what solidified SHAFT’s place as my favourite anime studio of all time!

    Let us not forget 2010’s Arakawa Under the Bridge!

      That goes for me too, I think. I had watched a few shows by them earlier and really liked them, particularly Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, but with Bakemonogatari it was decided. Shaft rules!

      I wouldn’t call that a blockbuster? I was more thinking about sales. But maybe Arakawa did have great sales? I haven’t heard anything about that actually.

  2. You’re not alone! Also did a Twelve Days of X’mas post on this as well, but with a story of a spontaneous marathon of Bakemonogatari. ^_^

    Ah yes, you were talking about blockbusters, I really should stop skim-reading…
    I have no idea what Arakawa’s sale were like but, everyone I’ve spoken to has enjoyed the show massively, (whereas opinions are often divided when it comes to Zetsubou sensei or Maria Holic) so, I’d guess, good?

    I didn’t realize that, but you’re absolutely right, the entire series was almost all talking. I’m looking forward to Nisemonogatari more than Kizumonogatari because I like the Araragi sisters.
