Araragi looks up his sister’s yukata and an elementary schoolgirl’s skirt.
If you’ve seen Bakemonogatari, you probably already know how you’ll feel about Nisemonogatari. This series seems to have a lot of raving fans, and if you’re one of them you’ll probably love this episode too.
I don’t have particularly strong feelings either way regarding the series. I love Senjougahara, but am fairly indifferent towards everything else. So the first segment with Senjougahara torturing Araragi was a treat for me, while the rest was decent but nothing to write home about.
Considering this is a Shaft sequel, and keeping their history in my mind, I have my doubts as to whether this will end up as a memorable sequel. The fact that this isn’t purely a comedy as most of their other sequels were should help, however, and leaves me cautiously optimistic.
But someone needs to put Shinbo under control. He’s gone wild with the camera shots and visuals. His stylistic flair can be great in moderation, such as with Madoka. But at some point his shows tend to become more about the cinematography than the story.
