Nise and Nekomonogatari Kuro Blu-ray set announced


Ararararagi. Oops, kamimashita!

A limited box set containing the Nisemonogatari and Nekomonogatari Black Blu-rays has been announced. New cover art by character designer Akio Watanabe was released recently featuring Araragi and his vampire counterpart Shinobu representing Nisemonogatari and the Fire Sisters with Tsubasa as the Black Hanakawa representing Nekomonogatari Black.

The Blu-ray set will also include commentary about the characters from the light novel author Nisio Isin. Pre-orders from Aniplex+ before 29th June will receive an exclusive T-shirt drawn by mangaka Ueda Hajime (FLCL).

New comers may be a bit intimidated by the long multisyllabic titles of the Monogatari series, but it gets even more confusing with the Blu-ray releases. Both these titles are already out on Blu-ray and so are the following two seasons; Hanamonogatari and Monogatari: Second Season, although the latter was spliced into it's individual arcs rather than a full season box set. 

The limited edition box set containing Nisemonogatari and Nekomonogatari Black will be out in Japan July 8th for 30,240 yen (~$244).
