Quick Thoughts: Nisemonogatari and a bit of Nekomongatari

Nisemonogatari

If you try to look up the Monogatari anime series you will see that it doesn’t follow the typical naming system of seasons 1, 2, 3 etc. Instead each season is named with the latest season being called Monogatari Series: Second Season.

Here are my wildest speculations on what Nintendo has in store for the next year.

Quick Thoughts: Bakemonogatari

Bakemonogatari covered

It’s funny what draws me to watch an anime series over another. Sometimes it’s due to it’s overwhelming popularity and fandom a la Bleach, Naruto and One Piece. Other times it’s because of raging hormones the heroine looks super pretty; To Love Ru, Amaenaideyo and Rio Rainbow Gate. This time, Bakemonogatari attracted me because I watched this review and also because the main character Araragi Koyomi shared my teenage emo hairstyle.
