Impressed!! Nisemonogatari 10-11 FINAL
Platinum Justice. I may be tied up a bit with my Japanator Saimoe duties at the moment, but I felt I should at least say a few parting words for Nisemonogatari. Despite my criticism of the series lolicon/siscon tendencies, I still feel it was the most artistically fulfilling (and therefore best) show of the Winter season and deserves a little closure.

Wait, there’s an ACTUAL chart?! It would seem Remon is the closest thing Ano Natsu has to a villain. Regardless of her intentions, it’s confirmed this episode that she’s not just trolling, she’s manipulating the group to whatever her own ends are. I’m still assuming she has everyone’s best interest in mind, but still, it’s a little morally gray to be...
