Here's a review of the light novel series by Andrew Cunningham:

Kodansha BOX is a label aimed at youth.
This is the first light novel series from Kodansha BOX to get animated.

Looking forward to this since for one it looks interesting and secondly I generally like (or at least find interesting) what Andrew does.

I asked him on AOD the following "I read your write up for it, looks like fun, does this have a conclusive ending since it's only 2 volumes or did he leave it open for more?"

He replied "Fairly conclusive, yeah. He could write more, but he isn't going to, basically. We are talking two 500 page volumes, and five actual stories, most of which are at least novella length."

So it's nice to hear it's fairly conclusive.... also isn't 500 pages rather large compared to most light novels?

I actually thought this was connected to the Bake Mono of Ayakashi ~ Japanese Classic Horror fame.

That's a interesting pun....

Bakemono (monster) + monogatari (story)

is that the intention?

Hilo Hello 2008-05-04 19:23

So, it could basically be translated as Monstory?

The official site for the anime has opened:

Yeah it'll be animated by Shaft. On the staff page, we can see that the director is Shinbo :cool:

ZODDGUTS 2008-09-05 22:04

Does Shinbo even sleep these days? :heh:

They've revealed another anime character design illustration on the official website. This time it's Hachikuji Mayoi, main character of second chapter. Seems like they're going to reveal the character design in novel chapter order.

Akio Watanabe's illustration is really good, it reminds me of Popotan and Komugi. :heh:

kyouray 2008-12-19 23:01

New illustration by Akio Watanabe :p

Following the NisiOisiN Anime Project site, it's now revealed that this series will be premiere on July 2009. Months of waiting again... :(

I didn't think it would be April (straight after Maria†Holic). It's a long wait, though at least now we know how long we have until it airs. :)

The latest volume of NewType comes with a two-pages Bakemonogatari feature with two new unrevealed characters: Hanegawa Tsubasa and Sengoku Nadeko. The image source is 2ch.

http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/7...9013xx7.th.jpg

From left to right: Hachikuji Mayoi, Hanegawa Tsubasa, Senjogahara Hitagi, Kanbaru Suruga, Sengoku Nadeko. Also, better quality needed!

Nadeko looks exactly what I wished to see. Hanegawa becomes more class-president-looking in some weird way than the original novel illustration. Now they've revealed almost all the main character's designs. What's left here is the most problematic part: the character designs for Araragi Koyomi, a main character and Oshino Meme, both of whom never has any illustrations in the original novel yet is very important...

Anyway, I'm really happy to see all the character designs are well-done as expected from Akio Watanabe. Waiting for July is a real torture, though. :heh:

Good to see the official site is hosting them. Hope that means more will be added in time.

They'll add the character illustrations for all main heroines, as far as I know (the older one are kept in the information page). According to the Sendenman blog, the next one will be Hanegawa Tsubasa, and they will reveal in it a few days. :)
