Pet Monogatari's Nadeko on Your Smartphone
posted on by Eric Stimson
Nademonogatari ("The Tale of Nadeko"), the latest installment in NisiOisin's Monogatari light novel series, shipped on Friday. To commemorate the new book, a website has opened allowing fans of the series to... pet Nadeko.
You see, naderu means "to pet" in Japanese, and Nadeko is the heroine of the story this time around. The book revolves around her gaining the power of Yotsugi and splitting herself into four Nadekos.
If you pet Nadeko enough, you will get mobile wallpaper as a prize. Shinobu and Yotsugi can also be stroked — but you must first share the site (in Shinobu's case) or pass a quiz on the novels (in Yotsugi's case).
If you'd like to join in the petting, visit here on your smartphone. Memory-chan relies on a similar scheme to improve your phone's battery life. A game like this was removed from the Western release of the Fire Emblem Fates Nintendo 3DS game.
