On the other hand, the existence of a Kizumonogatari anime remains a mystery. Of course, given the track record of many light novel anime, I don’t think I would’ve expected back in 2009 that I’d still be watching Monogatari in 2013. Bakemonogatari seemed pretty conclusive, which made Nisemonogatari feel kind of superfluous for me. What’s surprising about Monogatari Second Season is that it shows us that, no, that first batch of stories wasn’t really all. But now we know that this still isn’t over and Nisio Isin can still produce words about Koyomi Ararararagi et. al, so we may be wondering where the hell he’s going with this for a while.
