About Onimonogatari Shinobu Time Limited Edition Blu-ray
This limited edition of Onimonogatari: Shinobu Time contains episodes 1-4 plus a deluxe booklet, a pin-up postcard set, and a "picture scroll" pin-up.
After time traveling to the past with Shinobu Oshino, Koyomi Araragi meets Mayoi Hachikuji and returns her backpack, which she left in Koyomi's room. That is when they witness something unidentifiable - something that can only be expressed as the "darkness."
Koyomi, instinctively feeling danger, sits Mayoi on his bicycle and attempts to escape, but the ever-elusive "darkness" tries to swallow the two of them. They barely manage to escape with the help of the young shikigami girl, Yotsugi Ononoki, and they evacuate into the ruins of the cram school. There, Shinobu tells him that she encountered the "darkness" about 400 years ago. Then a woman named Izuko Gaen, who says she knows Meme Oshino, explains to them the nature of the "darkness"... and Koyomi has to face Mayoi's tragic fate.

Ratings & Reviews
Great show.. 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.
A must buy!

If you're a fan of the series, you already know that you'll love this arc! If you're just discovering this series (then shame on you! Joking) The unique storytelling, characters, and art will surely have you coming back.
