昨日は、「なでこスネイク」と「THIS IS IT」、同時発売。

King of POP と Queen of 幼女 が、同時に世に出たという事か・・・。

緊張・・・

ちなみに、どちらも買いました。

アニプレックス ゆま

Looks like even Shaft themselves admit to the fact that Nadeko is the queen of lolis.

If we get that I get feeling this show won't be dubbed, and probably just sold subbed which would be fine with me.

That's what I'm saying, it would be pretty sad if this series is as successful as it is because nerds are turned on by its characters. I think this series deserves its success, but for completely different reasons.

I think it's relevant to note that Nadeko identifies as a child relative to the other members of the cast. Regardless of her actual age, she thinks of herself as significantly younger than them and acts appropriately. Treating Araragi as an authority figure for example.

Nadeko does younger than other people. But not that much. I suppose it is because of her portray as a cute younger sister. That's why she is treated like a loli.



You can see that she is not that small, actually.

Araragi is short though.

What is his height? I think he is standard for an Asian.

She's neither really "that small" for an asian... nor is she really "loli" as she has a figure.

But ya know... people seem to see what they want to see

Not -that- small perhaps, but still, her hat does add to her height, so... :P

It looks like Koyomi is about 165 cm tall (from episode preview of episode 2).

At least she is taller than Koyomi's shoulder.

If Koyomi is 165cm, she looks around 150cm in that picture, or around 4'11". That's not even that short by adult standards in Japan (5'2" or 158cm for 19 year old girls in 2006), and puts her in the same general size class as characters like Kei and Chihiro in EF.

I suspect the main reason she tends to get misidentified as a loli has to do with the her saying "You're all grown up, so you won't feel dirty looking at my body, right?" to Koyomi. Even I was wondering a bit after that.

She's thought process disruption inducingly cute regardless.

It's probably a bit below average for a Japanese male, but I think he should still be growing.

Think he said he stopped growing once he entered high school or something.

Well, he has been stuck in this height for like 3 years now, so.....that's pretty much it for him.

She has the body of a loli (somewhat), but she definitely has the mindset of an adult. She is like a snake stalking Araragi's snake......irony.

Oh...I've completely forgotten that. Have to go back and rewatch...(or is it only in the novels?)

That said, one of my brothers was stuck at about 170cm for around 2-3 years before he suddenly shot up another 10 cm after he graduated from high school...

Nadeko DVD sales figures are out.

*2, 22,363 22,363 Bakemonogatari vol.4 Limited Edition DVD

Suruga Monkey did 18,607 and Mayoi Snail 18,731, I wonder if the Bluray for Nadeko Snake is going to be close to 50,000.

I think it's also cause she is younger[same age as his sisters] and in middle school while other are in high school.
