Ratings & Reviews
I know I'm gonna get downvoted to hell for this...
But I'ma do it anyway. Presumably, this set will be pretty much the same as part 1, as long as the actual content of the disc is unmarred, so go read my review of Tekketsu if you want a product review. I'm writing for a different reason, though. I made a remark there that this set is more expensive than the Japanese one and someone else took me to task saying that was untrue, so I'm here to explain that it is, in fact, more expensive. They quoted the msrp of the Japanese set as 8000¥ (around $80,) which is true, but neglected to take into account that it goes on sale for around 6500¥. This sets msrp is $90, with a store price of $70 here on rightstuf, meaning it is, without a doubt, more expensive than the Japanese set, whether it's on sale or not.
This isn't the place to cry about it or have a discussion, I just want people to know the facts about what they're buying.

Besides the price point this is a really well done blu-ray. It goes very well with the first movie as well. The postcards are really nice and the art book it comes with has key frames from scenes in the movie. Overall really nice product.

It's part 2 of the trilogy and it's just as fun and awesome to watch as the first one. Like the first, it's not 100% faithful to the book but no movie really is, so that's not a big issue.
The animations are still wonderfully well-done and the soundtrack is fun to listen to. The postcards, booklet, and blu-ray cover were cool to look through as well.
If you bought Part 1: Tekketsu and were satisfied with that, I see no reason not to be satisfied with this one, too.
My only gripes for not giving it a perfect 5 stars is with a few things about the movie's pacing towards the end, Episode's laughing scene, and that there are a few details that you would only understand after reading the book. Not a lot or anything big but it may be something a first-timer may want to know.
I still highly recommend this movie and the book if you want to know more.
If you didn't like the first, here you go.

I loved Kizu 1 but I can completely understand if you were underwhelmed by it. It's a bit weird and lingers on weird moments but the visual style made it for me.
This one will be the one for you.
It has great fight scenes with that same visual style and flair along with the fantastic characterization and dialogue you expect from the Monogatari series. It's way more fast paced and easy to follow so I was pleased with everything it brought to the table.
The box is well made and fits along with the other 2. The lettering is striking, if a bit hard to read, and it's just nice to look at. The artbook is nice to have and the soundtrack is always a nice touch with these, esp since you can't find them on any streaming service.
Get it if you can.
