Nisio Isin frequently written as NisiOisiN to emphasize that his pen name is a palindrome, is a Japanese novelist and manga writer. He attended and left Ritsumeikan University without graduating. In 2002, he debuted with the novel Kubikiri Cycle, which earned him the 23rd Mephisto Award at twenty years of age.

He currently works with Kodansha on Pandora, the Kodansha Box magazine, and Faust, a literary magazine containing the works of other young authors who similarly take influence from light novels and otaku culture. He was also publishing a twelve volume series over twelve months for the Kodansha Box line; Ryusui Seiryoin was matching this output, and the Kodansha Box website stated that this is the first time in the world two authors have done twelve volume monthly novel series simultaneously from the same publisher.

In February, 2008, his novel Death Note Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases was released in English by Viz Media. Del Rey Manga has already released the first volume in his Zaregoto series. His Bakemonogatari and Katanagatari novels have been adapted into anime.

I love Medaka Box and Monogatari. I'm currently watching Katanagatari, which is really great as well.
Good luck with Shounen Shoujo!!

I must say this is my favorite author. I loved the Monogatari series and Katanagatari anime, the Medaka box manga and volumes of Zaregoto that i managed to find in english. If only more of his work was translated.

Out of fairness, I started watching Katanagatari and started reading the Monogatari light novels.

So far, I think they're both a lot better than the anime of the latter.

Tbh, I think the Monogatari anime would have been a lot more enjoyable if it had been done by White Fox, or at least any other animation studio, rather than Shaft.

I've grown tired of monogatari.
How about we adapt some of his other better work for a change?
