When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.

  1. Bro, Katanagatari is completely separate from Bakemonogatari and all of it’s related seasons. Both sagas are written by Nisi Oisin, but they arent related besides in name by his love for playing with words. I think you should give the three Kizu movies a chance (if you haven’t yet), they have a bit of a different feel than the rest of Monogatari.
    Really enjoyed the camaraderie, I’ll be coming back to listen to more~

    1. Thanks for the comment!

      I know that Katanagatari is completely separate from Bakemonogatari, but it actually IS part of Nisio Isin’s broader Monogatari franchise – or rather, it was originally meant to be. It’s just that the popularity of Bakemonogatari has meant that it has now become the “Monogatari” but originally it was just the “Bakemonogatari” franchise – which in itself was part of the wider Monogatari franchise. This was confirmed in an interview by Nisio Isin shortly after Katanagatari started airing back in January 2010. Apparently he wanted to somehow bring Katana and Bake together in later volumes, but his ideas for Katanagatari changed while he was writing the story so he kept it as part of the original “Monogatari” stories, it just wasn’t and would never be part of Bakemonogatari,

      I have seen the Kizu movies and they’re good enough, but for me Katanagatari is still Nision Isin’s best adaptation and the better story by far.
