New Owarimonogatari TV Anime is Two-Day Special
Adaptation of 3rd novel in NisiOisin's series premieres on August 12-13
Not sure what I think of this. My initial reaction is disappointment, but some of the people commenting on the article are saying that the amount of content in the third volume is more workable in a shorter format, whereas they may have ended up needing to stretch it out to fit in a standard cour. I guess I just hope that they at least separate each of the arcs, and don’t do something like putting two of them into a single special.
I am a bit worried for what this might mean for it getting licensed in the U.S., seeing as there’s still no word on Koyomimonogatari being licensed. Nekomonogatari: Kuro, Tsukimonogatari, and Hanamonogatari were all licensed just fine, but if MAL’s info is correct, they’re all classified as TV shows, not specials, so I don’t know if that will make things more complicated. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
