posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday August 5, MVM will release Kizumonogatari Part 2: Nekketsu on Blu-ray. This is the second of a trilogy of films which comprises a prequel to Bakemonogatari. This edition will contain an art book and art cards.
MVM describes the story:
"Koyomi Araragi was turned into a vampire by the legendary vampire, Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade, and he needs to revive the weakened vampire back to her complete form to return to being human again. The only way for Koyomi to achieve his goal is to fight the three vampire hunters – Dramaturgy, Episode and Guillotinecutter."
The original book Kizumonogatari is the third volume in NisiOisin's Monogatari book series and is a prequel to Bakemonogatari. The novel tells the story of how protagonist Koyomi encounters the female vampire that would turn him and his journey to return to his normal life.
Akiyuki Simbo was once again credited as chief director of the anime version at the studio SHAFT. Akio Watanabe and Hideyuki Morioka designed the characters, Yota Tsuruoka directed the sound, and Satoru Kousaki composed the music.
