When will we hear the story of how Araragi became a vampire??
probably a bit after shaft stops making money off the S2 BD sales
Damn it people just read Kizu. This is not a hard thing to do. It's better than the adaptation will be anyway.
Now, if you can read.
And for fuck's sake post the real image.
SHAFT's too busy snorting shredded 100 dollar bills right now, when the pile gets small we'll get Kizu and Hanamonogatari as an OVA, probably.
Isn't shaft working on the movie for Kizu? That's what the president said at the Madoka premiere
Yup. So I'd imagine it's coming out end of this year or next year.
It was slated for release in 2013. Yet for some reason it isn't out yet. Let's put on our thinking caps to find out why.
what is the thing that i have to google search to know what you know?
>reading Nisio Isin willingly
why would I subject myself to that?? I only like Bake because of the fanservice
It's coming out end of this year or next year every year.
>doesn't realize how amazing Nisio Isn really is
Seek taste first, anon then watch the rest of Monogatari.
im sorry ;_;
What is the name of the media you wish to find? Oh, but it's Japanese, well what is the language you want it in?
I'm honestly curious about how SHAFT will chose to depict Kissshot in the movie, in contrast to how they depict her in random frames.
Probably pretty close. They may fuck around with her appearance as Araragi views her differently.
um english manga version i suppose, is that what im looking for?
He got bitten by Blackula.
Madoka Magical is why.
NO this isnt ATHF
Try out a search. Did you find anything? If not, what other formats could it be in?
Araragi should get bitten by a radioactive black man in the next novel.
I don't think much will change. Only thing that will is probably her attitude in comparison to the end of Kabuki and Shinobu's appearance. Who I believe is even younger looking than how she is in the series.
>other formats could it be in?
Just imagine for a second Kizu COMPLETELY REWRITTEN in Ghetto.
Fuck me. It's late. You know what I mean...
I miss Shinobu so much.
havent watched this since snail fucked off. whats happened since?
This anime confuses me but I still continue to watch it. Can someone explain the random pop up frames?
Koimonogatari/THE BEST ARC happened.
Kaiki became best girl.
They're snippets from the LN, because Nisio is wordy as fuck. They generally just give a little more insight into what a character is thinking at that moment, but some of them give more backstory. Sometimes it's important, most of the time not.
Fuck me, when did that cropping job get so bad?
I wish Kanbaru got more screen time
She was the shit
Hanamonogatari is supposed to be an OVA. Shaft can apparently manage those.
>Kanbaru not a shit
None of the Monogataris a shit. Though Nadeko comes close.
Shinobu's at her youngest with Araragi. Canonically speaking she's supposed to be physically 8 years old even in Onimonogatari.
In Kizu her youngest, short-hair form is 10. I really hope we get the pink dress + stockings depiction of Teen Shinobu in this picture.
When does the rest of the OST come out?
nadeko is someone i relate with so no a shit, a lost soul so bent, fucked up and coddled that go's insane and destroy everything it loves
It's also when the story confirms she's depressive as hell and stuff, although it was foreshadowed at almost every point in the series she came from a rather fucked up situation.
I'd still fuck it.
>Nadeko has the personality of someone who posts on /a/.
>That means she's not a shit.
That's why I said she only comes close. She becomes a bit of an annoying cunt for a period but overall I still like her.
>Reading Nisio in english
What the fuck are you doing nigger?
i think we can agree to agree
>first time in 4chan history
Sometimes people want to know what happens in a series faster than they can learn moon.
>Reading Nisio in Japanese
im impressed but fuck i needa have fun too
Not that anon, but the translation I read was serviceable. It wasn't ideal but it was better than nothing. It was my only option other than learn Japanese or wait for the movie (and between the two of them, I think it might be quicker to learn Japanese).
im taking this comment seriosly, how hard is it to learn Japanese?
Two alphabets and several million pictographs, takes japanese their whole life to learn all of them, but most books put plain hirigana next to kanji harder than 3rd grade vocabulary. Sentence structure is workable although jumbled compared to english.
If you work on it every day it will take you years.
umm, might wait for the movie
btw, WHAT THE FUCK IS A PICTOGRAPH??
Yeah I was just joking anon.
soo? im right then?
so witch is easier? cuse ill learn Japanese for monogatari
Might want to learn English first. And just read the fan translation of Kizu. It's the only one that's required to get the most out of the show so far. The rest will be adapted eventually.
This year it'll happen.
Those tits goddam
Nisemonogatari is one of those things like disappearance that are universally regarded as good. Just go read it faggot.
Wait. Nise isn't translated, is it?
Can't wait for the scene with them.
It would be easiest to kill yourself, because you'll never manage learning Japanese when you can barely even speak English.
Oh jesus yes. Too bad Ararararagi pusses out.
but the -gatari series is shit.
I meant Kizu I'm fucking retarded. Nise is shit.
Funny I see this thread, I just finished reading Kizu earlier today.
I really liked the story and how it all played out but the writing style felt kind of shit (but I guess that could just be the translation)
those Kissshot feels....
>A ragged dress.
>Arms and legs cruelly plucked out.
>She doesn't have a shadow even if illuminated by a streetlight, a monster.
>I thought that that blonde girl was beautiful.
>I thought she was pretty.
>I was charmed -- from the bottom of my heart.
>I couldn't look away from her.
>Moreover, I couldn't move my feet.
>Not because I froze, or because they won't stop shaking.
>It's just that I can't move them.
>That haughty attitude of before crumbled -- from her eyes, which had a golden color like the hair -- tears begin to fall in large drops.
>Like a child.
>She started to sob.
>"No, no, no......, I do not want to die, I do not want to die, I do not want to die! Save me, save me, save me! Please, I beg thee, if thou save me, if thou save me I wilt do everything thou sayeth!"
>She was shouting in pain.
>As if I was already out of her sight.
>Degrading herself -- she screams.
>"I cannot die, I cannot die, I do not want to vanish, I do not want to disappear! Noo! Someone, someone, someone, someonee--"
>The tears flowing out -- started turning red like blood.
>"I am sorry, I am sorry, I am sorry, I am sorry, I am sorry, I am sorry, I am sorry, I am sorry......"
>Finally, her words of plea have turned into apologies.
>Who is she apologizing to?
>But -- I couldn't stand watching her.
>Watching her apologizing like that, to an unknown being.
>She is not a being that should die in such an unsightly way.
My only problem with it was there were times when it was difficult to determine who was saying what. Whenever more than two people were talking it got confusing real quick. Otherwise I liked the writing style, though the translation was a little rough at times.
>My only problem with it was there were times when it was difficult to determine who was saying what.
Welcome to light novels. Unless mentioned otherwise dialogue goes in order where each character takes turns speaking.
>mfw the fanservice description of Hanekawa's panties
I didn't feel too bad for her there. Only at the end when they revealed her intentions (and why she came to Japan) did it hit me. Totally changed my perception of the character. To think, I disliked Shinobu before reading it.
Its weird to imagine the scene where she eats the arms and legs. At first I assumed it was "drink the blood from the arm." But I reread it and it said she was actually eating it. I wonder if they will show that at all. It does fit in with the message at the end that Kissshot is an actual monster that is dangerous for normal people to be around.
>To think, I disliked Shinobu before reading it.
How? Blonde loli vampire who calls the MC master and love donuts.
English novels do that too. But in Kizu there were a few times where alternating characters didn't make sense and I had to go back and piece together who the fuck was saying what.
when are the final LN's coming out?
I read it before watch Season 2. So all I had to go off of was Bake (where I felt bad for her but otherwise she was irrelevant), Neko Kuro (ditto), and Nise (where she annoyed me until the last two or three episodes).
>Not liking the reconciliation scene.
Ah well, at least you saw the light when she was really shining.
The bathing scene? That's what made me initially dislike her. She seemed like a bratty cunt. Of course, I hadn't read Kizu at that point.
Can't say I agree but she's damn great regardless. And if Nisio kills her off like some anons are predicting I'll be taking a one-way flight to Japan.
As if she thought Oshino wasn't worth talking to, Kissshot turned her eyes my way.
"As I said now -- do not be taken in by that brat's fast talk. I do not want to live."
"......And yet, I..."
Without hesitation, I decided it.
It was definitively my responsibility.
I thought hard about the consequences -- and I said it.
"I want you to live."
Caressed her hair softly.
Her golden hair.
Her soft and smooth hair.
That -- yes.
It was certainly a sign of obedience.
"I will not say it just once -- I will bow my head like a servant any number of times. So don't try to have a cool death -- live an awkward life for me. Don't search for a place to die, search for a place to live."
Kissshot -- had a desperate facial expression.
However, she couldn't move.
She couldn't even struggle.
She was in tears--
With tears similar to blood, she was just supplicating.
"I-I beg thee...... please, servant. Somehow...... somehow kill me. Kill me, somehow turn back into a human. Help me--"
"I'm sorry, Kissshot."
I called out her name.
The name that perhaps I would not call her by again.
"I will not help you."
Thus -- my Spring Break ended.
The Spring Break that was like hell.
And my last Spring Break as a high schooler -- with a tragic bad ending in which nobody became happy and there was no salvation, the curtain closed.
Being Kissshot is suffering
At least she gets to be with her husbando
Except her husbando killed himself ages ago.
Evidently you have no idea what that word even means.
Bad choice of words, whatever. She seemed like a cunt regardless.
The story makes it pretty obvious that dude really wasn't very important. Shinobu had nothing against making minions prior to him, she vowed not to make any more because of him, but broke that vow because of Araragi who was like a complete stranger. Araragi was an order of magnitude more important than the first guy before she even knew his name.
It was heavily implied that her original minion was also her lover. And obviously his death made a pretty big impact on her if she swore of making more. The only reason she made Araragi a minion was because he offered to help her when she panicked about dying.
Hell, the whole reason she went to Japan was because that's where she met him.
So in your world, even though she is an utter sociopath with a tenuous to nonexistant grasp on reality, she is somehow not a shit?
What kind of standards do you have where one questionable line of dialogue from Hanekawa is "heavy implication" but the entire rest of the story suggesting otherwise is not? Because it sounds an awful lot like bias to me.
>And obviously his death made a pretty big impact on her if she swore of making more.
Obviously not big enough to keep her from actually following through on her oath.
>The only reason she made Araragi a minion was because he offered to help her when she panicked about dying.
Making Araragi a minion was 100% optional on her part.
Why don't light novels just use colored text for speech?
>you a shit
