Bakemonogatari – Trailer


Here’s the PV for upcoming Summer 2009 anime, Bakemonogatari. SHAFT doing a horror series would be definitely interesting for their unique art style. Looking forward on how would it end up since this PV only showed so much randomness and less actual footage.

Based on the supernatural comedy novels signed by NisiOisiN, and set to begin in July 2009. A pretty obvious play on words, the title Bakemonogatari is formed from “bakemono” and “monogatari”, loosely translating it to Monster Stories (Monstories?).

Each chapter of the original novels revolves around one heroine with different powers (e.g. vampire, weightless etc.), and each chapter’s story plays an important role in the next one. The series primarily focuses on a conversation between characters; it contains a certain amount of parody to other series, media, wordplays and metahumor.

    Oh wow! You weren’t kidding when you said less animation than random other stuff. xD
