Two new guests CanonRap and Numbers and space come on to talk about Nisio’s writings and Shaft’s images.
In this special podcast, I bring on two guests to discuss the currently airing second season of the Monogatari series, particularly on Shaft’s handling of the adaptation of Nisio’s books, which we’ve all read. Joining me are Numbers and space a writer at Anime Audiolog and CanonRap, a long time translator who puts some of his light novel and manga translations onto his blog Quality Mistranslations. From the Monogatari series, CanonRap has translated Nekomonogatari White “Tsubasa Tiger” in full (mirrored on Baka-Tsuki) as well as excerpts from Nekomonogatari Black and from Kabukimonogatari. We do avoid spoilers for the sake of the vast majority of fans who are just following the anime, though we aren’t above teasing a bit. Thanks as always to Jrow for his fine production work on this podcast.
We open with the first ending theme to this series, supercell‘s Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari (The Story You Don’t Know) and close with the latest ending theme, Snowdrop sung by Haruna Luna and Kawano Marina.
