"Monogatari" Continues Summer Tradition With Giant, Glaring Kiss-shot Overlooking Tanabata Festival Installation
If you remember your "Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari," you probably have a sense for why festival is significant to "Monogatari"
Tanabata is a summer festival marking the annual meeting of lover deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (associated with stars Vega and Altair respectively). If you remember your "Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari," you probably have a sense for why it's significant to Monogatari.
It's set for the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, or July 7 of the Gregorian calendar, and celebrated with traditions that include wearing yukata for summer festivals and tying strips of paper to bamboo, which are often set afloat on a river or burned after the festival. Monogatari has a tradition of Akihabara JR station, and sometime leaving hidden messages. This year, the cast and crew of the Kizumonogatari prequel anime movies did the honors, accompanied by a giant figure of Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade.
Tekketsu-hen, the middle of the anime movie trilogy adaptation of Nisio Isin's Kizumonogatari prequel novel opens August 19th. In it, Koyomi Araragi' squares off against vampire hunters Dramaturgy (CV Masahi Ebara - Naruto's Might Guy), Episode (CV Miyu Irino Mr. Osomatsu's Todomatsu) and Guillotine Cutter (CV Hochu Otsuka -Naruto's Jiraiya).
