In Bakemonogatari, the story centers on Koyomi Araragi, a third year high school student who has recently survived a vampire attack, and finds himself mixed up with all kinds of apparitions: gods, ghosts, myths, and spirits. However, in Nisemonogatari, we pick up right where we left off and follow Koyomi as the psychological twists delve deeper and deeper…
Ah yes, this was the reason I decided to watch Bakemonogatari, and I'm so glad that I did. Episode 1 was awesome, if not a little too easy going. I enjoyed it nonetheless.
Hachikuji’s conversations with Koyomi in this episode were pretty amusing.
But most importantly, the weird head tilts, ‘black screen’s, signage, and the effective usage of colour are all back! That just reminds me why I love SHAFT’s work ~
CR did a great job with the translation ~
