First of all, my apologies for a long, looooong layoff of six months since I last posted here. That was in large part due to inspiration simply not striking for me over that span of time. But now, thanks to an anime awesomely trainwrecking, intensely invigorated inspiration has struck anew!

I have a love & hate relationship with this show. I want to watch it, yet I can’t bear to watch it. It’s not that it’s bad or anything, but the romance in it just seems so remarkably real in comparison to some high school romances I know/experienced. Because of that, it’s a pain to watch because it invokes sentiments, but, I still believe the show is good enough to warrant me to watch it.
I’m not even sure you can consider the introduction of a couple of mysterious characters who may or may not have some connection with Oshino a major breakthrough for the plot, because with only two episodes left, I’m very skeptical about how big a role Kagenui and Ononoki will have.
I have to admit, beyond some of the creative value of the show, the story and the characters are struggling to keep my attention. There’s a bit of been there, done that feel to Nisemonogatari. And the Kaiki/Karen angle so far lacks the power of some of last season’s stories (Senjougahara’s story aside, I think my second favorite was Hachikuji’s story).
I’ve been flying around a bit for the past few days so I’m an episode behind. I planned on watching Nisemonogatari on the plane… but then I realized that I probably would’ve been arrested at the gates for indecency.
