Again for me that was again an example for, what works on paper is not said to work on screen.
And the worst thing is - we actually excepted it to be the other way around for Katanagatari.

Yes! Though I hope our comments don't bring your excitment up too much, as I am always fearful of over-hyping!

Seems so far like it is exactly what I feared it will be.
Storyless talking show with nice visuals.

A lot of shows are like that; its what I like to think as "different", not necessarily bad (yet).

Exactly what I thought after I watched episode 1. I couldnt even remember how many times I window-sized my vlc to check the clock they should make it 20 or so minutes and make it every week.

kinda reminded me of index.

and one episode per month is just too long...

One thing I learned from Katanagatari...
Spoiler for Size:

Oh, if only I knew what this comic said.
Spoiler for slight nudity:

Good god I can see why they didn't make this a weekly thing.. because no one would watch two episodes of straight talking with a fight scene that was a minute, and for the most part the story was not all that engrossing... blah blah blah my father died, oh turns out he's a great swordsman with a technique, blah blah blah. There was soooooooooooo much talking and so little anything else, other than the unique character designs I don't see anything that awesome about the series. Honestly listen to that show was like listening to harry potter on cassette/cd or w/e the cool kids do now a days.

If you don't mind my shitty translation:

Koumori: Even Kyotouryuu can be caught off guard.
Koumori: Don't you know about my ability already?
Togame (Real one): He has that thing on!

Paraphrasing the trailer,

Following the flow of a hollow plot, Katanagatari.
Secret school of a storyless story
.


...Nah, just joking.

Reactions to the first episode of Zaregoto will be fun.. either it's going to be "omg all they do it talk 100% of the time" or "omg all they do is talk until the last 30 seconds". And the latter will prompt a reaction of "wtf they rushed this so they end the episode on that part!! *rage*"

Zaregoto needs to be animated. Please announce soon Nisio, it will be 2018 before the novel series is fully released in English at this rate/

Of course. When did he ever fail?

I absolutely adore the song used in the first two minutes of the episode. Reminds me of the GITS movie.

Black Cat, Angel Heart & Persona were very disappointing by his standards. He went through a lean patch from after ROD TV until Kekkaishi imo. Can't say much about Kuroshitsuji though... and no idea about Oban Star Racers.

Kuroshitsuji is another favorite of mine, slight slips here and there but really not a bad show by far. It may because I'm more focused on characters then actual plot (lets face it all plot is cheezy ).

No idea about these.

Yes. He even introduces himselves as the "Bat of Hades".



Speaking of bats. Aren't all people in Maniwa Army designed after certain beasts?

Oh yes, yes, yes. As for soundtrack, I wouldn't expect it until much later this year. BD/DVD-coupling CDs are pretty tight with content already, so OST should come separately.
