This suits my tastes just perfectly. Too bad there won't be no Senjougahara though.
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

Okay, now I'll watch it.

I wasn't going to watch it, because I thought Bakemonogatari was absolutely terrible and I couldn't possibly sit through another season of it.

But now that it's announced as a movie, I'll most likely watch it.
Except if it's really long.

I really happy to hear that Kizumonogatari will get an anime adaptation but at the same time I disappointed. I thought it would be not movie but a TV anime.
it's so sad....

Just recently finish reading the novel earlier and indeed, it suited to be a movie. I have a lot of expectation on the scenes and events. Oh and if anyone's curious what arc is it, it's the Vampire arc, by saying that you'll have a lot of clues who'll be in it :D

-- I'm looking for "The One" and I'll find her more quickly if I audition two at a time. Think you can do better? --

Kizumonogatari is quite short so movie format is a good decision. It should be much better than Bakemonogatari but I don't expect anything form shaft anymore.

Sounds good! It's interesting that they went reverse and made a prequel instead of a sequel.

So, instead of about 240 min (12x20min) will get about 120 min? Great...

Kizumonogatari means focusing on Araragi and Shinobu.
That means no Hitagi D :
At least there will be Hanekawa.
I think it's going to be like an episode of Katanagatari, lots of talking, only longer since it's movie.
And I remember a news related to this. Otakus don't want Aya Hirano to play Shinobu.
Just saying.

I was also expecting a series. A movie is not bad either, but it's much shorter than a series, that's why I preferred a series. I don't think this will be the last time we'll see an new anime from the Bakemonogatari series.
I hope they make another movie/OVA for the other prequel (Nekomonogatari) and Kabukimonogatari and a series for the sequel (Nisemonogatari), and maybe something for the other upcoming light novels and the just released Hanamonogatari, or something like that. I want to be able to read Japanese...

Movie? Thought about 3-4 eps long OVA, but movie might be better. On the other side, shaftish movie might be strange, but they've pulled one already ( http://myanimelist.net/anime/2175/Kino_no_Tabi:_The_Beautiful_World_-_Byouki_no_Kuni:_For_You ) even with decent reviews. So who knows? Maybe this will work?

For all people mongering about Kizumonogatari not being a series - read it up, compare it's size to Bakemonogatari. And then think: how much you would have to stretch it to make it into a series.
Answer is simple: too much.

It's simply not long enough for a TV series... and you're severely underestimating the length of movies in comparison to TV anime.
If you do the math the original series comes out to around 5 hours, and it covered 2 novels. Kizumonogatari is only 1 novel, and honestly far less time is needed... so it actually all depends on how long SHAFT wants to the movie to be.

Anyway, this isn't a good thing at all. I don't feel like waiting an entire year after it gets shown in theatres for the BD to come out.

A movie? Damnit, I wanted an anime. Also, they'll probably take forever to do it.

Ok, let's hope for a good movie, then.

Wait a second, wasn't Kizumonogatari gonna get a serialisation? So what's this about a movie eh?

I are confuzzled.

EDIT: I'm not saying a film would be bad... in fact... that would be fucking awesome... if of course adapted nicely. Like Katanagatari, 12 episodes for 12 volumes. And then at some point I'll also read Nisemonogatari. Unless that gets an adaptation as well... which means I'll have to get through all adaptations before reading on anything... and if they do get animated... then I have planned to read every single thing about Bakemonogatari starting from Bakemonogatari to get a second experience.

Interesting. The problem is just when we will be able to watch it, since we'd have to wait the DVD/BD. SHAFT's works shouldn't be watched in camrips.
