Nekomonogatari Black (猫物語(黒) Nekomonogatari Kuro) anime is the third Monogatari adaptation from animation studio Shaft. It adapts the first of the two-part Nekomonogatari light novel series, the fourth part of the series as a whole. It is the first stand alone single arc, single book adaptation in the series, meaning it is a short cour that only contains a single arc and a small amount of episodes that released all at once. This format was later used again for the Hanamonogatari and Tsukimonogatari anime adaptations.

It was released on three different locations, which include the video hosting site Nico Nico Douga and Japanese television stations TOKYO MX and BS11, on December 31, 2012 with a total of 4 episodes.

Presentation Edit

See also: Bakemonogatari (anime series)#Presentation

Nekomonogatari Kuro contains a presentation fairly similar to that of the Nisemonogatari Anime, but mostly set the standard for the presentation found in Monogatari Series Second Season with a couple changes to techniques.

Screen Flashes Edit

Chapter

Screen flashes work and appear similar to before, but have a couple new changes. Besides the following techniques, text quoted from the novel is used a lot more commonly.

Chapter Numbers Edit

The number of each chapter is now flashed on screen before each scene starts. This was kept in all following TV series adaptations.

Neko black date

Arc Specific Screen Flash Styles Edit

Some flashes, particularly ones for dates, have a custom white and black style, exclusive for the arc.

Alternate Color Palettes / Intense Lighting Effects Edit

Black kawa

With many scenes taking place at night, intense lighting effects are used quite frequently. While it still seems somewhat related to the lighting, full on alternate color palettes also return after their absence in Nisemonogatari. Characters and their clothes commonly have a pale complexion with muted colors. Hanekawa is sometimes depicted with dark hair and white skin, during a scene that focuses on white, black, and red colors.

Music Edit

Satoru Kosaki once again reprised his role as music producer. The opening theme song for the special was "perfect slumbers", performed by Yui Horie, who voiced Tsubasa Hanekawa. The song "Kieru Daydream", sung by Marina Kawano, was used as the closing theme song.
