Product Description

The conclusion to the First Season of NISIOISIN's Monogatari begins with NEKOMONOGATARI (BLACK). In this two volume collection NISIOISIN turns his focus onto Araragi's close friend Tsubasa Hanekawa, revealing a new side to her that is more in tune with the world of MONOGATARI. A prequel to BAKEMONOGATARI here we see just what Hanekawa has become.

Following up on the high note of family ties on which the previous installment concluded, but preceding it chronologically, we find Araragi and his little sister Tsukihi, the heroine of the last volume, in full sibling rivalry mode as they bicker about love. The conversation that cannot end unfolds in its unabashed original glory herein.

Like KIZUMONOGATARI, which delved into our narrator’s disastrous spring break, Cat Tale (Black) is a prequel about another catastrophe, mentioned often yet never recounted even in a foregoing chapter dedicated to Miss H.: namely, the model student’s rampage over Golden Week, a string of holidays starting at the end of April.

Closing out what has come to be known as the “First Season” of the series, this episode of ’GATARI, as rich as ever in silly banter and poignant profundities, richer than usual in snide meta comments about the anime, will make you laugh and cry, or just put a grownup smile on your face, maybe, but is guaranteed to stay with you forever.
