Great Release

by -

This set covers another Kanbaru arc; last in chronological order. The actual product is pretty nice but could be better. You get two blu-rays to maximize the quality, postcards, and a booklet. The postcards contain beautiful illustrations from Akio Watanabe, Vofan, and others. I only recommend this set if you truly enjoy the Monogatari series. Kanbaru is one of my favorites and love it when she gets more screen time.

Great series.. but expect the same release content as before.

I am a fan of the Monogatari series. As in every arc, there are interesting discussions, intriguing stories, and beautiful frames of animation that are especially nice due to being Blu-Ray. The audio is overall crisp, but it can be a little jarring when there is substantial emphasis on a word or phrase during dialogue which, if your volume is turned up pretty loud, will catch you by surprise sometimes.







The "second season" releases for Monogatari are being churned out following the exact same formula of "split every individual arc into separate releases, throw some pity extras in, and ship it" that Aniplex has derived following its recent mega-hits like SAO. The extras are okay, but I'm not a fan of the flimsy cardboard slip covers in which each of these arcs are shipped. Additionally, the number of arcs in the second season and the stand-alone releases brings a massive overhead cost to owning the entire series.







Overall, this product is up-to-par with the recent arc releases.
