Confirmed by Kodansha, a complete guidebook of supernatural sensation, Nisemonogatari, will release September 28th – as well as the latest light novel in the “-monogatari” collection, Tsukimonogatari.
A “complete guidebook” says much in the name alone – most typically, they offer comprehensive information on the basic synopsis of the series in question, alongside some more detailed story elements, highlights of each individual character both main and minor alike, as well as an abundance of artwork from the animations, magazines, and perhaps even a few original or key visual illustrations.
Nisemonogatari being the marvel that it is, such is certainly more than merely “good news” – it’s an instant, and definite, purchase worth making, and one which to miss out upon would be quite depressing.
Now in respect to Tsukimonogatari, obviously another entry in this heavy hitting series is something highly significant. The tome was originally set to release this month – yet was delayed for an unspecified reason. Postponed dates of debut are never quite enjoyable, especially when the series in question is of unparalleled popularity as is the “-monogatari” series – however, it at least will launch alongside the guidebook, both releasing on the same date.
With all accounted for, these developments are indeed quite favorable.
