Nisemonogatari (偽物語) is the anime adaptation of Nisemonogatari, the third part of the Monogatari Series. It is the second Monogatari adaptation from studio Shaft. It is the first to be directed by Tomoyuki Itamura, who went on to direct the rest of the TV series while Bakemonogatari director Tatsuya Oishi went through development hell working on Kizumonogatari. Like most Shaft works, it's also "chief directed" by Akiyuki Shinbo.

Based on the two volumes of the original novel, it follows the story of Koyomi Araragi and his experiences after the events in Bakemonogatari. For this addition of the series, Araragi's sisters act as the main focus.

The original novel was originally never intended to be released, as Monogatari author Nisio Isin was merely writing it for his own enjoyment as a sort of "fan fiction," but it ended up being released anyway. As such, Nisemonogatari infamously features a lot more fanservice and bizarre sexual material than its predecessor.

The series aired from January 8th, 2012 to March 18th in Japan with 11 episodes total.

Presentation Edit

See also: Bakemonogatari (anime series)#Presentation

As the first adaptation under another director, the series attempts to replicate the predecessor's style, not doing anything too drastic to differentiate itself. Almost all common techniques return, including identical colored screen flashes. The following lists notable techniques that are either new or altered slightly.

Non-literal / Teleporting Locations Edit

Nise teleport

Koyomi and Mayoi appear in a theater-like location before ending up back in a city street where they started.

Arguably, a lot of visuals, including locations, in the first adaptation weren't meant to taken literally, but this new technique depicts characters seemingly teleporting to alternate locations, especially to compliment the dialogue. Prior to this, scenes generally stood still, with characters only being shown in one location at a time and setting a new scene before showing them in another.

In addition some areas, such as Kanbaru's House, are extremely exaggerated, with a conveyor belt, signs, and shovels set around to compliment the scattered books being cleaned up. Locations prior never had this level of exaggeration.

Screen Flashes Edit

Colored screen flashes appear to be mostly identical and hold the same purpose. Flashes showing dates appear to be used more commonly.

Alternate Color Palettes / Intense Lighting Effects Edit

Nise intense lighting

Unlike before, color palettes of characters generally stay the same throughout, although intense lighting effects seem to be used even more frequently. Occasionally, this intense lighting affects the colors of characters.

Real-life Footage & Imagery Edit

Compared to the first adaptation, real-life imagery is used a lot less. One instance includes, brief footage of an egg frying when describing the fire sisters.

MusicEdit

Satoru Kōsaki returned as the music producer for the series.

The series features an ending theme song by ClariS and ryo of supercell entitled Naisho no Hanashi.[1] The opening theme songs for the series are Marshmallow Justice and Platinum Disco, performed by Eri Kitamura and Yuka Iguchi respectively.
