Katanagatari [Light Novel]



Author: Nisio Isin

Publisher: Kodansha

This light novel by Nisio Isin has 12 volume. It apparently ran from January 2007 to December 2007. Coincidence that the TV series will feature one episode a month? My superb deduction skills acquired by exploring the inches high bushes behind my back yard tells me, this is no coincidence. The purpose of this thread is to allow a venue for all those who are already knowledgeable and/or the curious ones who wants to know about the novel and doesn't mind getting spoiled in turn. Go ahead, unload all your spoilers here. That way the thread for the anime counterpart can be spared from any spoilerific urges. The following synapses was stolen from Wiki word for word:
One day, a girl named Togame, arrives on the island where Shichika and his older sister Nanami lives with a favor to ask from him. She tells him that she is on a mission to find and collect the final twelve swords forged by a master swordsmith by the name of Shikizaki Kiki and she needs his help. They then both leave the island together to seek out the swords.

I still can't believe Nisio pulled that shit on us. But I'll admit, a sad ending is sometimes the way to go.

Sad doesn't really describe it does it. More like RAGE.

Honestly, wasn't the girl he ran away with the one who killed Togame or at least was the one who send out the command?

Really, if the anime people found out about the ending, they will probably drop the show like dead flies. They probably don't want another repeat of School Days. (Even though I think Makoto is a hero among men.)

Spoil it for us. I don't think anything can make me rage again today after watching Triangle Blue ep2.

That I don't agree with. I raged so hard watching School Days to the end, Shichika is definitely not Makoto.

Spoiler for For the unfortunate souls who happen to step into this topic by accident:


For the following part, if you enjoy episode 1, please don't read for your sake.

Spoiler for What really happened to Togame:


Honestly, it's not that bad of an ending. Best it's better to find out on your own by watching. Feel free to get attached to the characters, and feel sad after (not being sarcastic here, the characters are the best part of the story, like freaking all Nisio's work ... except Medaka, which had more than 2x the action the rest of his series combined). The most impressionable character for me had like a grand total of 15 or so lines before he got killed so ...

I've seen all the illustrations for the original series and i must say there is a gratuitous amount of squirrels in them.

Well, it sure as hell sounds original at least. Btw, is Maniwagatari a prequel or a sequel spin-off?

Ntr means like you catch your girl cheating but you cant do crap.

its gettng more popular in hentai such as triangle blue.

for example: you love your best friend, and your about to confess, then some douche you hate has some h-action with her while you watch.

The situtation can be in different styles, my example is pretty bland, but do you see where i am going with this? in the bakemonogarti light novel discussion thread we explained more indepth what ntr means.

Note: i am typing from my phone atm, so please excuse any grammer problems.
