Aniplex America Licenses Bakemonogatari

So, exactly how long has it been since Bakemonogatari has aired?

About three years, as a matter of fact. And to be honest, there was a whole crap ton of speculation during that time which company was going to license the show, and make an American distribution of it.

I'm not really complaining, I'm just saying that it's been on the pick-up list for a long time now, and it seems that most fans have already passed it by looking to the horizon at other newer titles out there.

Nevertheless, Aniplex of America has licensed the series, and plans to release it in some fashion, whether that's all digital or for DVD or whatever. There is no word if this includes a dub, or if this is going to be a subbed only release, and despite the good news that it is being released, this is really no better than it was before.

With no word on much, other than the acquisition, this is pretty much the same as ever, and we could now be facing a long wait on the actual street date, assuming that is the route that Aniplex is going to head toward.
