Monogatari Veterans Promote NisiOisin's 1st e-Book in Anime Ad
posted on by Egan Loo
The Kodansha Box imprint is streaming an anime commercial with Monogatari Series ties to promote the first e-book novel from Monogatari author NisiOisin, Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku (The Notebook of Kyoko Okitegami).
Yui Horie: When a neck is tilted, please call a detective. A very quick but forgetful detective. Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku. It would be best if she could solve it within a day.
Text: For Kyōko, there is only today.
The story is about a detective named Kyōko Okitegami who is also known as the forgetful detective. She forgets everything in a day, but solves cases the same day. (Her name has the Japanese word for "today" in it.) An unlucky young man named Yakusuke Kakushidate somehow ends up as the suspect in every case, and he always asks for the detective.
The book features artwork by NisiOisin's Monogatari Series illustrator, VOFan. In addition, the Monogatari Series anime franchise's Tsubasa Hanekawa voice actress and theme song performer Yui Horie narrates the commercial. Yukihiro Miyamoto (Monogatari Series episode director, Arakawa Under the Bridge and Puella Magi Madoka Magica series director) filmed the commercial at the anime studio SHAFT with animators Akio Watanabe and Hajime Ueda.
Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku debuted on Wednesday in both print and e-book editions.
