Nathan Torres

still 5 and a half hours to go. you have to set your device to japan time

Grayson Foster

This changed everything.

Elijah Mitchell
Elijah Mitchell

yeah, japan's countdowns are always broken because they don't accomodate for people outside of japan

David Ramirez
David Ramirez

So, what will it be. Considering Ii on the page, shouldn't we perhaps get Zaregoto?

Justin Lee
Justin Lee

i really hope so. they're advertising it as saikyou, but there is hardly enough saikyou material to even make 12 episodes.

the text also says 戯言だけどね which means "it's all just nonsense (zaregoto), isn't it", which is zaregoto series' tagline

even if we don't get zaregoto anime now though, i'm sure we'll get it someday thanks to this. SHAFT is showing interest in it

Brayden Johnson
Brayden Johnson

It'll be a Zaregoto live-action adaptation.

Brody Richardson

i honestly wouldn't mind

Liam Collins

is anyone here also watching the persona 5 countdown?

Lucas Fisher

Yup. Two countdowns today. That music though.

Aaron Sanchez

God damn, a Shaft adaptation of the second Zaregoto book would be orgasmic. The things they could do with the reveal of the first killer

Justin Brown

nearly 3 hours left! lets try to keep this thread up until the countdown finishes so we can actually discuss the result without making a new thread

Carson Phillips

Where did you find the full size art?

Wyatt Smith

If there isn't any key visuals idc. We already know shaft is doing this. We need more information

Ayden Jackson

why's that? because shaft never gets anything done on time?

Asher Williams

There was a trailer right after Kizu countdown.

Charles Cruz

Yeah. Only 4 years late.

Colton Green

Maybe they'll do a four or five episode special

Joseph Edwards

We already know shaft is doing this.
That's not a given at all. Each Nisioisin anime series so far has been produced by a different studio.

Logan Gray
Logan Gray

yeah, i'm really hoping there's a zaregoto/saikyou PV right when the countdown ends, though an announcement woud be good enough for me

Elijah James
Elijah James

shaft is one of the keywords in the website's source code

Easton Harris
Easton Harris

Zaregoto's MC is like Araragi 0.5a.

Alexander Perez
Alexander Perez

Please no Akio Watanabe designs. He's great but repetitive. He was amazing early on but everything now looks like a gatari clone

Jason Sanders
Jason Sanders

definitely not. they'll probably try to replicate take's style

Julian Hill
Julian Hill

Oh, I see. That's a little disappointing.

Jordan Brown
Jordan Brown

Shaft is known to mimic the sources style. Idk if they would go as far as White Fox though.

Jason Jones
Jason Jones

Nisio Anime Project twitter said it is related to Saikyou stuff.

Jace Hughes
Jace Hughes

what's wrong with shaft?

Mason Morris
Mason Morris

Anime about another nisio's best girl?

Adam Brooks
Adam Brooks

best boy

John Bailey
John Bailey

Shaft will probably ruin it if they adapt Zaregoto, Saikyou and Zerosaki. These three do not need any visual allegories to be successful.

Samuel Sullivan
Samuel Sullivan

they are nothing alike

Luis Jenkins
Luis Jenkins

Eh, if they leave it in the hands of Oishi it'll be a decent adaptation.

Eli Garcia
Eli Garcia

Best boy is Araragi.

Jason Thompson
Jason Thompson

But Shaft can into subtleties but they are bad with into detective/logical reasoning stories. Look at Ougi Formula and Sodachi Riddle. I don't know whether Oishi can pull it or not though.

Nathan Sanders
Nathan Sanders

Nisio's detectives are horrible. But he likes to write them a lot.

Jonathan Gray
Jonathan Gray

they are bad with into detective/logical reasoning stories.
how could they be bad with something they didn't write

Samuel Reed
Samuel Reed

Well, I just think Shaft's output over the last few years has been fairly weak and would've liked to see someone else take it on.

Oishi's busy with Kizu though. He wouldn't be doing this unless it's being released later next year.

Bentley Garcia
Bentley Garcia

kizu is done isn't it? i just assume that they're releasing it in intervals

Henry Rodriguez
Henry Rodriguez

adaptation screenplay =/= original writing.
adaptation can be worse than original source material.

Adam Williams
Adam Williams

Shaft's output over the last few years
Madoka, Rebellion, Second Season.

Benjamin Edwards
Benjamin Edwards

adaptation can be worse than original source material.
But that's not what that guy was talking about. He assumed Shaft was to blame for Nisio's detective stories.

John Morris
John Morris

You're forgetting the weak stuff; Mekakucity Actors, Koufuku Graffiti, Niskeoi and Sasami-san

Ethan Allen
Ethan Allen

that was pretty retarded.
Though I do agree some of Nisio's detective stories are decent at best. Most of them only work if you self insert as MC/narrator.

Jayden Ramirez
Jayden Ramirez

Julian Jones

Jacob Powell

Graffiti was boring. Okada should stick to original stuff.

Matthew Cox

Set your device to japan time.

Gavin Gonzalez
Gavin Gonzalez

Mekakucity had a few problems(the horrible CGI) that Shaft are to blame, but most of the blame falls on Jin who fucked up the screenplay and the anime turned into an awful mess. All the other adaptations they did after 2011. were good adaptations of awful source material, you just can't polish a turd so much that it magically becomes good. I like Zaregoto and still think that Shaft is the right studio for anything Nisio related.

Carter Morgan
Carter Morgan

I wonder if Kamiya is in here.

Logan Morgan
Logan Morgan

Yeah, like I said, weak.

Landon Myers
Landon Myers

Oh we have a troll. Carry on.

Lucas Anderson
Lucas Anderson

But Gainax made Medaka Box and it wasn't terrible at all. A-1 or I.G are my top picks for something like Zaregoto and its spinoff, provided that they hired directors that are well versed in mystery stuff.

Wyatt Thomas

yfw zaregoto by kyoani
how would this turn out? they DID make hyouka

Owen Barnes
Owen Barnes

It'd be the most interesting KyoAni show ever because it wouldn't immediately look like a KyoAni show

Jackson Green
Jackson Green

It would be interesting, but I don't want the characters to look like typical Kyoani characters.
Also, Hyouka was pretty boring.

But to get Zaregoto?!

that is legit source.
The mod just trolled the followers, nothing else.

Dylan Russell

I looked at it, but it really is just a bunch of keywords for search, like Shaft, Aniplex even has Owarimonogatari, Kizumonogatari in it.

Sebastian Garcia

They still announced a new volume kf Saikyou LN

Where is details?

Carter Morgan

How do they animate the unreliable narration of volume 2 without being super obvious about it?

Zachary Taylor
Zachary Taylor

Official confirmation of a Zaregoto anime isn't really "nothing", but since it was the most obvious possibility and there doesn't seem to be any info beyond "it's happening" it does seem almost anti-climatic.

Xavier Brown
Xavier Brown

Pretty sure Shaft has done it many times in the Gatari series.

Hunter Rogers

there aren't any yet, but an announcement is enough to make me happy. i assume they'll follow up with details in a bit

zaregoto
it's only 9 books, and a few of them are somewhat short. i guess they could make it a bit longer if they throw in ningen and saikyou though

Jacob Robinson
Jacob Robinson

I don't think it's gonna be Shaft. Shaft is pretty busy with kizu, owari, 3gatsu, fate and probably Madoka.

Camden Cruz
Camden Cruz

To adapt fully means to milk now? You kids have been robbed of a full adaption for years and now you criticize it.

Noah Harris
Noah Harris

it's only 9 books
Did you forget the Saikyou Series?

Mason Turner
Mason Turner

I know that. What I ask is how is the story. Will be like monogatari, story-wise?

Who are not tied with any project as of right now, anyway?

Nathaniel Morris
Nathaniel Morris

i said they could throw in ningen and saikyou to make it a little longer, but zaregoto on it's own isn't so long

Luis Long
Luis Long

Will be like monogatari, story-wise?
Probably not. It has some actions, murders and logical reasoning stuff. I do hope they get A-1 with Subete ga F ni Naru quality.

Samuel King
Samuel King

Half the staff in kizu isn't even part of SHAFT, Owari? that ended last year, 3gatsu is set for fall of this year and Fate for next year. They have many projects but none really clash with each other.

Hudson Peterson
Hudson Peterson

Kizu is probably already done and just being split up as a marketing gimmick. Owari has their own staff working on it. 3 Gatsu will probably be Shinobu doing his thing so he doesn't need to oversee the other projects. Fate is all the way in 2017 we dont even know which season it will air. Forget about madoka is over sheesh. Besides they are all backed by Aniplex so I'm not worried.

Gavin Gutierrez
Gavin Gutierrez

Owari? that ended last year
Only 2/3.

Jose Morgan

How and where can I read this?

Luke Jones
Luke Jones

Itamura sucks at directing a mystery where the characters just sit in a fucking room and talk about the past, so everyone at the studio can't possibly adapt a mystery work

Wow. Great logical reasoning friend.

Caleb Sanchez
Caleb Sanchez

Kizu is probably already done and just being split up as a marketing gimmick.
Do you have a source on that?

Julian Gray

so, is this a harem anime?

It was watered down. I don't specifically said he's bad at it. It is just not his forte, to me.

Jackson Martinez

I do hope they get A-1 with shit quality

Gabriel Russell
Gabriel Russell

Your reading comprehension baffles me.
I like Shaft, like you faggots do but this just isn't Shinbo's stuff. Maybe Tatsuwa or Oishi could pull it off but seriously not Shinbo. Itamura is still questionable to me.

Also, go and watch Perfect Insider, you faggot.

Camden Perry
Camden Perry

Nice. I hope we get some Zerozaki Maiori

Jeremiah Peterson

I know it's impossible but imagine if they announce KyoAni as the studio adapting it. Only thinking about the shitstorm that would ensue got me all horny and sweaty.

Why is MC such an edgelord fag.

Juan Mitchell
Juan Mitchell

Iori was a normal girl until she was about to get killed by one of her friends who she manages to fight off and kill instead. Before she can think about what just happened, Zerozaki Soushiki appears and tells her about her developing urges of a cutthroat murderer and that she is supposed to be his new sister, the newest member of the Zerozaki family.

This sounds way too edgy, is it the right character?

Kayden Turner

He is like Shichika.

Yes.

Charles Bell

You, and me too now. I'd still love it.

Dominic Brooks
Dominic Brooks

I'm reading the synopsis and a few character profiles and the lore is way too convoluted. I'm not sure how they're going to make it work without heavy expository dialogues and narration. Actually one of the reasons I didn't like Bake is for the complete disregard of the show don't tell rule in visual storytelling.

Luis Thomas

Five. Maybe the guy translating it will get some motivation from the anime announcement, but in my opinion he's not doing a great job.

Asher Ortiz

Zaregoto means nonsense.

Jace Reed
Jace Reed

Yase Yuki is not a bad director and he can handle a large cast well. The character interaction in MCA was fine. It was just that the script was shit af. I want to see him redeem himself with Zaregoto. Let the young Shaft directors have a shot.

in speed he's not, but he's a great translator

William Ward
William Ward

I like the Nisio SHAFT combo, personally. I hope it starts a trend of the rest of his stuff getting complete adaptations due to not having as much monogatari left to adapt. Incomplete adaptations are the plague of the industry.

Benjamin James

It sells so I'm pretty confident we'll get everything or most of nisio work animated, what a time to be alive.

How about SZS, user?
New season never, the moment the radio show was kill.

Joshua Perry
Joshua Perry

I can't really see him as Ii-kun for some reason. That said, I don't really know who could pull it off. I can think of Oogata Megumi's job as Kumagawa to be close, but still not quite fitting.

Daniel Powell

Logan Long
Logan Long

Can't really agree with that. After finishing volume 5 in english I started reading from volume 6 in moon since my studies were starting to give fruit. After reading Vol. 6 I went back to check his translation of the prologue and wasn't really impressed by his choices. The translation was not really incorrect, but still felt off to me. It's Nisio we're talking about so maybe it can't be helped. On the other hand I think the guy translating Neko Shiro did a really good job at putting up with Nisio.

Ethan Morris
Ethan Morris

will there be a new season?

Elijah Allen

what if they've had a new season locked away for a while and were waiting 7 years to release it

Jeremiah Cox
Jeremiah Cox

6 months of kanji and the language itself??

Jaxson Sanders
Jaxson Sanders

Can't really tell. It may have been around the time I took N3, but since I got a full score it it isn't a really accurate a measurement.
may be right, I never read Narita, but doesn't look easy. I'd say you should go for it and try if you want, you'll learn even faster like that. A lot of Nisio's works can be found in aozora bunko format, so if you have a kindle you're pretty much set.

Jacob Torres
Jacob Torres

yep. 6 months straight of studying every single day, starting since the end of last october

William Parker

i own zaregoto actually, i just can't read it very well. i just wanted to see how much further to go until i was just like you

Joshua James

did you take any courses or did you learn everything by yourself? I'm also thinking of trying to learn it next year,been stalking the DJT for a week just to find some way for self teaching.

Jackson Wright
Jackson Wright

Guess I can try it when I'm done with the Boukyaku Tantei series books.

I also own it, but being able to look up stuff on the go is pretty handy.

Owen White
Owen White

I actually have read Zaregoto until Kubitsuri Highschool, half of Shoujo Fujuubun and most of Monogatari books. Narita's wording is pretty similar to Nisio's. The only difference is Nisio likes to insert pun and his unreliable narration into his writings.

Nicholas Brooks
Nicholas Brooks

Cooper Jones

I want to jam it into the blue savant.

Jace Peterson

oh look its this meme again.

Ryan Cruz
Ryan Cruz

Shoujo Fujuubun may be one of the books where Nisio just went and made a story that could be told in a few pages into a full book by adding random stuff, by I advise you read it through the end. i think it's really important to understand Nisio.

Elijah Mitchell
Elijah Mitchell

You only find t difficult to read Nisio because of the styling he chose. Try reading his earlier stuff, like Zaregoto, they are much easier to read than Monogatari and Okitegami.

Aiden Evans
Aiden Evans

no, he is been teaed around but only one real love interest.
and he hate her

Hunter Martin
Hunter Martin

I'm still reading it. Right now I'm swtching in between Wazamonogatari, Okitegami Vol 2 and SF.

Joshua Anderson
Joshua Anderson

So 9 volumes of the main series and then 7 of the spin off. If they're adapting the main series, is it enough for a 1 cour or 2 cour?

Bentley Smith
Bentley Smith

Isn’t there something really scary about people who knowingly, consciously, use others as stepping-stones?”
Actually, it’s the people who unknowingly—with all the best of intentions and delusions of just cause—use other people who are way more disturbing.

Julian Long
Julian Long

This is gonna be a fucking mess, Shaft can't adapt shit without making it full of stupid jokes, meta imaginery and unnecessary pop culture references. This is a mystery series and I think they are the less suitable studio to adapt it.
RIP Zaregoto

Jason Nelson
Jason Nelson

Would have to be 26 episodes for the first season and 12 episodes for a second to complete Zaregoto adaption.

Adam White
Adam White

thanks user, I'll try!

John Moore
John Moore

Watch more shaft before looking like a pleb.

Angel Perez
Angel Perez

What? That's only because some of what they adapt is loose enough for adding in things like that. It seems you've only watched those.

Ryan Sanders
Ryan Sanders

Denpa Onna had less meta imagery, less stupid jokes and no cultural references. It worked just fine.

Cameron Sullivan

Zaregoto is also full of pop-culture references though. I hope they do a good job with Aikawa Jun jumping from a sitting position Zeppeli-style.

Alexander Watson

I'm pretty sure that doesn't matter, it's just getting made cause it'll probably sell regardless of anything

Kevin Gutierrez

I guess it's too deep for kyoanifags

Brandon Nguyen
Brandon Nguyen

Doubt they are going with that style. Anyways they deviated from it a lot throughout the years. Even though Kizu does have that it isn't as much as when Bake was exploring that style.

But narration is easy to do in anime in general. HxH did it well in the CA arc.

Noah Perez

We all know that wasnt even a passion project. It was a quick cash grab while they were animating Hana and Nisekoi. Besides MCA's fault was its script not direction.

Nolan James
Nolan James

I blame Jin mostly, the CG shit though was unfogivable

Levi Rodriguez
Levi Rodriguez

They might be able to do it. The novel did it by having a seemingly coherent flow of events. That is perfectly achievable with animation cuts. It probably won't come out as well, since anime being a visual medium means they have to actually show what's going on, instead of just Ii-kun narrating, but it's doable.

Daniel Murphy
Daniel Murphy

Even that wasn't shaft. Yes its their fault due to management but that cg was outsourced.

Samuel Thomas

inb4 Umineko tier adaptation full of logic errors.

Tyler Jones

I'm genuinely excited to see how the fuck are they going to animate that, and I think the reveal will be glorious

Juan Clark
Juan Clark

It was just a badly managed attempted cash grab project off a big rabid fanbase is what happened. Turns out it's mostly preteen fanbase didn't really follow it to animated form.

Justin Wood
Justin Wood

oh. Then Shaft is partly forgiven

Colton Diaz
Colton Diaz

I don't even remember volume 1 that well. Who was killed?

Adrian Ward
Adrian Ward

In vol2 for example, it will be way too obvious if they have to hide the important parts with cuts, black frames or however they choose to do it. It works in written form because the information is so limited anyway so the viewer doesn't question it.

Aiden Diaz
Aiden Diaz

that artist bitch

Chase Ross
Chase Ross

Right, right, now I remember. The beheadings, of course.

Thomas Torres
Thomas Torres

I bought vol 2 to read it but skipped 1 since it was fucking expensive.

Matthew Anderson

How many episodes do you guys think this needs for a full adaption? I think 3 cours would do the job. If they want to go 12, 12, 12 or 24 + 12 I'd be happy.

Jason Ross
Jason Ross

A-1 Pictures is fucking terrible
They are only good for their production values

Jaxon Collins

It'll be either Chiwa Saito or Maaya Sakamoto just because that's the convenient easy and popular choice for continuity in things that brought in money and commentary from Monogatari

Brandon Gonzalez

Yeah, it's Take all right.

I'd rather have Sawashiro.

James Thomas

Nolan Gomez

It was so obvious that they weren't even trying with Mekakushitty
It wasn't just bad, it was lazy. Watching it, it was clear to me that nobody on staff was devoted to the project at all, save for Jin, who is just an idiot.

Samuel Martin
Samuel Martin

Sawashiro is great but in this case Chiwa Saito would be a better fit, damn when I read Zaregoto I imagined Aikawa's voice as Chiwa

Kevin Wright

Fate - Team Tatsuwa

NO! He is good with comedy but I dont want to see Fate go that route. Rather have Yukihiro Miyamoto.

For fuck sake. I did mention only if they hire the same director that did Subete ga F ni Naru. Its screenplay was decent and pretty suitable to what Zaregoto offers you.

A-1 aren't really a studio, just a bunch of freelancers put together by Sony/Aniplex when required. Their staff varies tons.

So did I, I think she would fit really well.

Ethan Rogers

Lincoln Campbell

While that is true they do have a signature style of animation. I can easily tell the character designs being A1.

Tyler Bell

I don't think the BokuMachi anime looked very A1.

Jeremiah Cruz

she should do Ichihime

Nathan Perry

White Fox was already quite close to the original character designs for Katanagatari.

Can't wait to see how Shaft will do an even better job.

Ayden Stewart

But Maaya would be perfect, user. Chiwa is indeed versatile but then again, she didn't have that Aikawa Jun's appeal in her voice. Try watching Digimon Cybersleuth playthru, Kyoko is rather close to Aikawa in nature.

no.she should play Mikoko. I want to see her commit suicide

look more closely
Character designs vary across A-1 series but they're all animated with similar style and technique

you're implying that zaregoto will come out in 2017

anime production usually starts 8/9 months before airing.
So, yes I am

Carter Anderson

I don't believe it has a chance to come out this year.
Do you think it will be 2018, then?

Juan Watson
Juan Watson

Easily. Monogatari can finish everything up in 1 cour. Kizu is basically done just release it. With that they are only working on Fate, 3 Gatsu, and Zaregoto.

3 Gatsu is on NHK so we can expect 2 cours. Probably wont need a crazy budget since its SoL. Even koufuku looked amazing.

Fate has that type moon budget so there is no worries there. SL showed great animation improvement compared to their other series.

Zaregoto can come out whenever in 2017 and not be hindered. Look at Shaft 2013 their biggest projects were set that year.

So sad to know del rey cancelled this cause they didn't sell shit, but everybody will be super overhyped as soon as the first ep is released because "yoo! another work from monogaytari's author, this gon' be so weird and unique (shaft™). My fav anime from now on"

Leo Allen

Look at how long it took Monogatari to get picked up. Light novels generally do like shit because weeaboos need more pretty pictures and can't read proper books.

Do you have a source on that?
Yeah - the impossibility of making 3 full, beautiful movies in one year (connected movies, too) and somehow not doing it at the same time.

No one will pick up and publish the rest of the novels

Maybe vertical in the future. Or Yen Press they are already building up a big reputation.

Samuel Turner

Fuck. Even more reasons to postpone killing myself.
I know that feel.

When I found out that Bakemono was being released this winter in English, I gained a few months of life

Maybe vertical in the future.
Vertical is a possibility, but in their recent "what do you want" questionnaire, they disallowed picking up dead/dropped series for some reason

Christian Hughes

I think I should rewatch Katanagatari.

Jacob Turner

This makes me worried for their schedule. They have this, 3-gatsu, that Madoka project, Fate Extra and the last two parts of Kizu. Where will they fit the next monogatari season?

Henry Torres
Henry Torres

Monogatari is good
Katanagatari is good
Zaregoto has a chance to be good

Is Medeka Box the only animated Nisio show not to be good?

Luke Bailey
Luke Bailey

Well Nisio's work in general doesn't translate well in manga format. On top of that Gainax.

Brandon Martin
Brandon Martin

They can easily fit it in. Only 3 gatsu is coming out this year, as its confirmed and Fate sometime in 2017. Owari/Zoku can fit anywhere. Dont worry about Kizu thats being outsourced anyways.

Parker Cruz
Parker Cruz

Is there hope for the novel license to be rescued?

Justin Peterson
Justin Peterson

If Zaregoto ends up getting as popular with the West as Bakemono did, there's a chance.

That said, things don't generally get rescued - especially not LNs, which tend to sell less than manga anyway.

Charles Mitchell
Charles Mitchell

So Jun, Medaka, and Kisshot all walk into a bar...

Wasn't it also used in volume 5, by the end Ii was just making shit up because everyone else expected him to, and everybody else was playing along because they wanted him to make shit up?

Alexander Thompson
Alexander Thompson

Makes me wonder why they teased that Madoka thing on their events.

Oliver Campbell
Oliver Campbell

Because it's a Madogatari event. Madoka and Monogatari.

The Zaregoto announcement isn't related.

Adrian Evans

It hasn't even been confirmed to be Shaft
It could be White Fox again for all we know

Nathaniel Wood

here's your confirmation

William James

By that logic it's also Owarimonogatari

Samuel Ramirez

Looks like, as mentioned earlier, they just threw in a bunch of tags.

Robert Bailey

what if Itamura does Zaregoto

Levi Foster
Levi Foster

Wouldn't really work out if they want to finish Monogatari around the time Kizu Part 3, which would make the most sense imo.

We also don't know what happened with Yukihiro Miyamoto. Possible that he is working on the next Madoka project.

Adam Harris
Adam Harris

But Shaft fucked up a bunch of Monogatari arcs due to their heavy schedule in 2013.

Anthony Allen
Anthony Allen

Not really. Anyone who thinks that is probably over analyzing. Many people I've talked to love Second Season and don't really see the arc flaws. I know they are there but my bias chooses to ignore them. The flaws weren't even major enough to even mention them. At the end of the day everyone has an opinion but there is a reason why second season is known as the best season.
