Oh me oh my, so this is what Shaft has been cooking up lately (other than the Negima movie and Kizumonogatari). So it has just been recently announced that Akiyuki Shinbo and Shaft have been working on a sequel to Bakemonogatari which has been titled Nisemonogatari. According to ANN, it is set in the early 21 century and will be focusing on Koyomi Araragi’s two sisters, named the “Fire Sisters”, Tsukihi and Karen Araragi. As I mentioned before, it is being directed by Akiyuki Shinbo and the character design’s will be done by Akio Watanabe, the man behind the character design’s for Bakemonogatari and The World God Only Knows. The website and the first trailer for the series can be found here.
All I have to say is hell fucking yes!!!! Bakemonogatari is my all-time favorite Shaft show and finding out there is a sequel coming out very soon focusing around the Araragi sisters, two characters I hoped would have had more screen time in Bakemonogatari, is just some incredible news. This is now my most anticipated series coming out next year. Can not wait to sink into this series and spend some time with a new Shaft series.
