Trailer streamed for latest NisiOisin anime from director Akiyuki Shinbo, Shaft

A NisiOisin Anime Project announcement event at Tokyo's Nicofarre hall revealed on Thursday that a television anime series adaptation of NisiOisin's Nisemonogatari novel has been green-lit to premiere in January. The novel is the latest by NisiOisin to get an anime.

The story is set in the early 21st century as a sequel to another NisiOisin story, Bakemonogatari, and it centers around the "Fire Sisters" Tsukihi and Karen Araragi.

The publisher Kodansha, the production company Aniplex, and the anime studio Shaft are collaborating on the new anime. Akiyuki Shinbo (Bakemonogatari, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) is directing, and Akio Watanabe (Bakemonogatari, The World God Only Knows) is designing the characters.

The official website has opened with the first trailer.

The event also announced that a Song & Soundtrack Collection and a Blu-ray Disc Box for Bakemonogatari will ship in Japan on December 21.

Update: More information added.
