MVM has put up Blu-ray and DVD editions of the OAV series Nekomonogatari Black on its Anime-on-Line page, scheduled for August 25. The four-part series is a prequel to Bakemonogatari (Anime-on-Line gives it a running time of 107 minutes). MVM describes the story as follows:
This story is about an incident that happened before Bakemonogatari. On his way to the bookstore, Koyomi Araragi encounters Tsubasa Hanekawa whose face is covered with a bandage. The incident allows Koyomi to learn what has been happening in the Hanekawa household, but Tsubasa begs him not to tell anyone about it, saying she'll do anything to keep him quiet. Without revealing her family's circumstances, Koyomi tells of the day's incident - he and Tsubasa buried a "cat" that had been hit by a car - to Meme Oshino. Meme tells Koyomi that he must immediately go to confirm Hanekawa's safety. He heads to her house, only to find... So begins the nightmarish nine days of Golden Week.
