Nisemonogatari to Stream on Crunchyroll

Just when it seemed that most of us had forgotten completely about this franchise, along comes a sequel to one of the most interesting and complicated anime shows in the past couple of years.

I speak of course about Nisemonogatari, the new show scheduled to broadcast in Japan this Saturday, and interestingly enough, has been picked up for simulcast by Crunchyroll.

Based on the limited information that I have, I gather that this sequel picks up where the previous series, Bakemonogatari left off, and will continue to follow the adventures of our estranged hero.

I don't know if it's the fact that I have become distrustful of so many anime companies lately, or if I've just gotten complacent in my older anime years, but I'm actually sort of glad that Crunchyroll has gotten this title, and that they will be offering it to the fans of the series.

My biggest concern about this sequel is that it does not repeat the broadcasting shenanigans of the first, by broadcasting the first 12 episodes like normal people, and then air the final three on some website only. I don't know about anyone else, but I was ready to stomp someone's junk in for that one.

Though if Crunchyroll has a license to broadcast digitally, then I can probably be safe in saying that it isn't the case, since I'm sure they would go Ape-Shit at that notion altogether.
