— Temporal Vortex

I wasn’t exactly excited over Nisemonogatari since I was pretty much expecting already that they’ll really adapt the rest of the Monogatari series given that Tsukihi and Karen haven’t had their respective arcs yet. But right after I saw the trailer, I can’t believe how much I missed the characters, especially Hitagi.

I don’t think I really need to explain anything about this series except the act of describing it as fabulous. I know it started airing 2010 but I always use the ending date to categorize it as an anime of what year. The whole Kiraboshi thing really got me hooked -before I knew it, it’s already viral. I still recall reading Good Haro’s updates about the series. Unfortunately, I’m still not at that level where one is able to memorize the Hebrew runes and the names of the Cybodies. But seriously, staring at that chart took a lot of my time.

I believe that I have one post sitting in the drafts which was supposed to be about Fractale, and to be specific, the Fractale System itself. Since I lost the motivation to actually continue the post (who knows if it’ll rise from the graveyard), I thought I should at least mention it here. And no, this post isn’t a rant of what it has become. After all, 12 moments is supposed to outline the best parts of what happened throughout the year.
