posted on by Karen Ressler
The Kodansha Box imprint began streaming a second anime commercial on Wednesday featuring characters from NisiOisin's Monogatari series to promote his e-book Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku (The Notebook of Kyōko Okitegami). Monogatari Series anime franchise's Tsubasa Hanekawa voice actress and theme song performer Yui Horie plays the title character Kyōko in the commercial.
Koyomi: If you're looking for Hanekawa, she went to buy a reference book.
Tsukihi: Hanekawa is at the park.
Yotsugi: Tsubasa should be at the school.
Shinobu: That former class rep. is playing at the tsundere girl's house.
Kyōko: Now then... I wonder where she is.
Kyōko: The fastest detective, but a forgetful detective. Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku. If you could please buy it for enjoyment, the answer is... I forget. Text: To Kyōko, there's only today.
The book features artwork by NisiOisin's Monogatari Series illustrator, VOfan. Akiyuki Shinbo, director of several of the Monogatari anime series, storyboarded the commercial and Yukihiro Miyamoto, episode director on the Monogatari series, directed. Hirofumi Suzuki animated the commercial at Shaft.
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.
