Nisemonogatari / Amagami SS+ Trailers

The following section is from our resident Monogatarifag Moshiburner.

Oh the things I do to make a blog post amusing… It took me all of ten whole stinkin’ minutes to paint.net that thing.
But MAN am I on fire for Nise! Epic sequel incoming, I swear. I’m burning through the novels as I type. No I’m not. I’m going to sleep now. But when I wake up, you know what’s goin’ down. My morale! Wait what no that’s a good one but NO go away now yes just leave okay good thank you!
So, as a show of my/our overflowing enthusiasm (he says as he shoves fake moshiburner behind the curtains), here is the following 60-second promotional video of Nisemonogatari, or, as we the staff have decided, Impostory:

Was it good? Yes it was. No it wasn’t? Well you’re no good either. Is ar’s typesetting fabulous? Yes, as always. Are fnord and Daiz going to work the hardest and get forgotten again anyway? Probably. IS THIS WHOLE THING A FAKE? THEN OUR PLANS MUST BE REAL!
…I think I’ll stick to easier jokes. I pray that someone understands it.
Anyhoo, I’ll let Raze take over from here. We shall meet again!
…And next time, you’re in for one hell of a story.


Okay, my turn. We decided to sub the above Nise PV as a “practice run” of sorts to figure out how we’d handle the translation of certain phrases and terms, and the typesetting. Things worked out pretty well, I think.

While ar was wrapping the signs up, it occurred to me it wouldn’t really be fair to Amagami fans if we subbed a Nise PV and just ignored dat Ayatsuji trailer. So… here it is!

Yeah, we’re reusing the fonts and stuff from the original. Nostalgia etc.
And no, we didn’t forget about Carnival Phantasm. Please see our release FAQ on the right for status information.

84 Thoughts on “Nisemonogatari / Amagami SS+ Trailers

  1. Amagami PV is in HD πŸ˜€

  2. Spinarakk on January 1, 2012 at 5:36 pm said:

    Is the localization used in the PV reflective of what you’ll use for the actual Nisemonogatari series itself?
    If so, CAN’T WAIT!
    (And is 8thSin translating it for you guys? Just wondering)

    ayatsujiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii :3

  4. SoupRKnowva on January 1, 2012 at 6:13 pm said:

    Spinarakk, did you read the post? moshiburner will be translating Nisemonogatari for UTW. EighthSin will be translating it for gg….

  5. copyking on January 1, 2012 at 6:18 pm said:

    amagami seems to be a lot more ecchi

  6. aoihakurei on January 1, 2012 at 7:08 pm said:

    gg(read:koda) hates monogatari. So no, they’re not doing it.

  7. Can’t wait for more Amagami! I always wondered how they were going to continue the story, but it seems like they’ll just be continuing from the festival.
    They’re going to start with Ayatsuji too. I wonder if this means they’ll be doing it in opposite order of the first season.

  8. Matteas on January 1, 2012 at 8:21 pm said:

    I can’t wait for Fakemonogatari!! Your prayers were answered, Moshi. I get it ^^
    Nekkid Ayatsuji? Me approves!

  9. IzumiTaka on January 1, 2012 at 8:29 pm said:

    Love both shows <3

  10. BananowyJE on January 1, 2012 at 8:43 pm said:

    And what about Fate/Prototype? Are you going to do it?

  11. shadowfall on January 1, 2012 at 8:55 pm said:

    Yeah as same as BananowyJE I want to know it too πŸ˜€

  12. Alteration on January 1, 2012 at 9:06 pm said:

    I’m guessing 8th is TLing, and Moshi will be editing (?)

  13. Is there any chance of you guys subbing the Fate/Extra specials where the three Servants fight against Dark ExtraSakura?

  14. So much confusion.

  15. Herper on January 1, 2012 at 10:08 pm said:

    Raze, your inner Type-Moonfag tells you to spend the night subbing Fate/Prototype.

  16. youhei on January 1, 2012 at 10:21 pm said:

    @ alteration: if i am not mistaken 8th wrote on his blog that kusion will be his editor for nisemonogatari.
    but still wondering whether he’ll translate for UTW since this post let’s me think that Moshiburner will be translating it.
    sooooo looking forward to both series!!!

  17. Thanks! Can barely wait for both series to start! XD

  18. Animebaka on January 1, 2012 at 11:06 pm said:


  19. I’m rewatching Bakemonogatari at the moment (I forgot all) and I’m glad the way the characters act are totally in line with how they did in Bakemonogatari, or at least they’ll begin Nisemonogatari so.

  20. WhoWhat on January 1, 2012 at 11:10 pm said:

    LMAO. I had my mouse pointer over the spot that guy was poking at 0:14 (Amagami) and that freaked me out, especially when my mouse pointer twitched and looked like it got bumped over a little.

  21. Amaimono on January 2, 2012 at 12:11 am said:

    Totally gonna watch these two beautiful animes from you guys. πŸ˜€
    Also gonna wait for your Fate/Zero batch as well.

    Rihoko, are u getting friend zoned again? D:

  23. lilly_938 on January 2, 2012 at 2:00 am said:

    next week couldn’t come fast enough!
    p.s. would you please sub the 2nd pv for nise?

  24. Ausdoerrt on January 2, 2012 at 5:14 am said:

    Are you planning to sub Fate/Prototype?

  25. So it’s Amagami After Story? I’M SO OKAY WITH THIS.
    Good luck with that typesetting, fnord and Daiz.

  26. @People who can’t read
    See the Release FAQ for details about Fate/Prototype
    No, because the amount of time required for me to typeset it can be better spent on typesetting Carnival Phantasm.
    fnord is typesetting Amagami SS+, I am typesetting Nise.
    @People who haven’t realized who wrote the Nisemonogatari blog part of this post
    Moshi is translating Nisemonogatari for us.

  27. Nick J on January 2, 2012 at 6:05 am said:

    Keep going guys! Nice Saber Lily up there.

  28. Nyanto! on January 2, 2012 at 6:49 am said:

    Are you planning on subbing Fate/Prototype? It’s only 12 minutes long.

  29. Nyanto! on January 2, 2012 at 6:50 am said:

    …I guess I’m one of the people who can’t read.

  30. HQDniuhk on January 2, 2012 at 6:58 am said:

    The heroines order will be Tsukasa – Rihoko – Ai – Kaoru – Sae – Haruka.

    thanks a lot!
    ….and let the countdown begin!!

  32. Nick J on January 2, 2012 at 7:43 am said:

    Regarding Carnival Phantasm Season 03
    [spoiler]there’s Kiritsugu and Iri? oh wow[/spoiler]

  33. Nick J on January 2, 2012 at 7:44 am said:

    Aw man the spoilers system didn’t work!
    Fixed it for you.

  34. WhoWhat on January 2, 2012 at 8:32 am said:

    ar, you gonna pull out some fancy typesetting skills for Nise? Or ar ya just simply gonna make it “pro” and make it solid, neat, and efficient?

  35. @WhoWhat
    Whatever the signs require I suppose. I guess everything is weighed up on time to do the sign vs time available. I guess take a look at the typesetting on the preview, that’s pretty much what to expect.

  36. Gekokujou on January 2, 2012 at 9:08 am said:

    Okay, that Amagami trailer made me hard, especially with Ayatsuji like that.

  37. Nick J on January 2, 2012 at 9:54 am said:

    Thanks, site admin!

  38. at what time will Fate Zero ep11 air?

  39. DonPizza on January 2, 2012 at 2:17 pm said:

    Can you please upload a raw version of the Amagami PV? πŸ™‚

  40. infinityfreedom on January 2, 2012 at 2:24 pm said:

    amagami sequel huh? kukuku…sounds interesting to know what happen after their fateful encounter. Nisenmonogatari…already in my animelist to watch!
    btw when u guys subbing fate prototype? I can hardly wait!

  41. youhei on January 2, 2012 at 3:32 pm said:

    how about reading the release FAQ in the right column?^^


  43. sistevenako on January 2, 2012 at 4:07 pm said:

    I literally fell down my chair when i saw the ss+ trailer you know which part

  44. Thank “god” that 10bit is already established.
    Gotta watch this thing with all the quality possible. =P
    Looking for it to yours releases guys.

  45. Schezza on January 2, 2012 at 8:40 pm said:

    thanks for the Amagami Trailer!!!

  46. dark dragon on January 2, 2012 at 9:35 pm said:

    Thanks a lot, UTW bros! Looking forward to these 2 subworks of yours!

  47. ar is a amazing typesetter…

  48. So damn excited! πŸ˜€

  49. Nestor on January 3, 2012 at 8:59 am said:

    I don’t actually see any download links (torrent or otherwise) for either the Nise or the Amagami PV.

  50. The Plus stands for more neketism.

  51. enigmabloom on January 3, 2012 at 8:11 pm said:

    Amagami, SWEET MERCY

  52. Ok now that Crunchyroll has announced that they will simulcast Nise, will you drop it?

  53. CrunchyRoll announced it will simulcast Nisemonogatari. I don’t doubt their abilities one bit, but at the same time, I’m not so sure they’ll typeset signs and other weird stuff SHAFT might throw in. I ask that you still do it, just so we have the option. Of course, I’m just a leecher, so whatever you do, I’ll still support you guys. Thanks for your great work.

  54. Wow, totally ninja-ed on that. I was also thinking you could take their translations, and all you guys would have to do was typeset the signs.

  55. So, Moshiburner will be translating Nisemonogatari instead of 8thSin? I am okay with that and actually prefer Moshi for a series like Nisemonogatari. Unlocalized is ideal than with more Americanized subs.

  56. hurpadurp on January 3, 2012 at 9:44 pm said:

    I imagine they’ll still be doing it, as Nisemono will be really typesetting heavy. HS’s rip will be a headache to watch.

  57. Pewpeww on January 3, 2012 at 9:48 pm said:

    Hopefully they dont screw over Rihoko this time πŸ™

  58. RedFox on January 3, 2012 at 10:29 pm said:

    I think the best course of action for Nisemonogatari would be to check out CR’s version before making any final decisions. If they do a stand-up job, let ’em keep it. If not, do it yourself.

  59. L-sama on January 3, 2012 at 11:07 pm said:

    Like someone said already – I’m just a worthless leech, but I’ll state my opinion: I hope you’ll do it. Can’t wait, love you guys!

  60. anonymoose on January 4, 2012 at 1:39 am said:

    I was looking forward to seeing how you guys handle Nisemonogatari. I really hope you guys still do it.

  61. Anonymous on January 4, 2012 at 1:58 am said:

    Please don’t drop Nisemonogatari, we all know how much CR sucks at typesetting.

  62. 1Pantsu on January 4, 2012 at 2:27 am said:

    TLC’d release maybe? just hoping.

  63. lilly_938 on January 4, 2012 at 2:46 am said:

    Considering Moshiburner’s enthusiasm, I doubt they’ll just drop Nise altogether. They’ll most likely do what they did with GoSick, well, hopefully anyways.

  64. Nisemonogatari => Crunchyroll-ed
    LOL, What’re you gonna do now UTW?

  65. sagrado_corazon on January 4, 2012 at 4:13 am said:

    I really hope you guys don’t drop Nisemonogatari. πŸ™
    Still love your work though, regardless of the outcome of Nisemonogatari πŸ˜€

  66. glider on January 4, 2012 at 4:56 am said:

    Oh man croll…lets hope UTW knows to edit their subs for a better quality release!!! Please dont drop ;(

    What is this, some sort of spoiler?!

  68. L. Grey on January 4, 2012 at 8:24 am said:

    UTW + Gosick + CR = Victorique
    UTW + Nisemonogatari + CR = Tsukiren?

  69. dudestar on January 4, 2012 at 9:38 am said:

    I’m quite sure Crunchy is going to fail BIG TIME with the typesetting…

  70. aperapist on January 5, 2012 at 10:00 am said:

    Crunchyroll is doing Nisemonogatari
    I used the caps because am excited YEAH~!

  71. Progeusz on January 5, 2012 at 7:20 pm said:

    Hmm… Would you mind telling us if you’ll be able to release Amagami SS+ 01 in next 7 hours? I don’t know whether I should go to bed early or stay up ^^

  72. someone on January 5, 2012 at 9:44 pm said:

    In relation to Amagami SS Plus, are you releasing it as 8bit or as 10bit? I’m asking cause I give kudos to 10bit for its picture quality, but it’s hard to watch on a laptop, even with updated codecs. That and 10bit doesn’t give me thumbnails for the video files either.

  73. lecher says on January 5, 2012 at 11:07 pm said:

    please do Nisemono! i’m begging *grovel*

  74. Nekros on January 6, 2012 at 12:05 am said:

    plz don’t drop Nisemonogatari.
    I never liked CrunchyRoll and i’m sure alot of people would agree

  75. Perfect Chaos on January 6, 2012 at 5:04 am said:

    @Zan It’s simply that “nisemono” means something that is a “fake”.
    Also, is it possible to get a status update on Amagami SS+?
    Normally, I just wait patiently, but I’ve been in an anime slump with not having watched anything in a while due to everything either ending or not airing due to the holidays; that, and it’s Amagami (and to make it even worse, it had to be Tsukasa first)… XD

  76. Souther on January 6, 2012 at 10:56 am said:

    Ok, we all knew, that Senjougahara had that kind of inclinations, but seeing is on a whole different level.

  77. Please, please don’t drop Nisemonogatari. Crunchyroll will ruin it. There’s too many word plays, too many signs, etc that will likely go unsubbed.

  78. Zangetsu on January 7, 2012 at 12:31 am said:

    It’s a shame about Nisemonogatari, but your reasons are understandable.
    Regardless, knowing that we will get a quality release once the blu-rays are out is
    good enough for me!

  79. LoopCircle on January 7, 2012 at 12:54 am said:

    >Read the announcement regarding Nisemonogatari
    Terrible news, but I suppose it’s reasonable. But once the BDs comes out, moshiburner will sub it then? I hope so. Until then, I guess.

  80. OoOdarksoulOoO on January 7, 2012 at 4:01 am said:

    What?!!! I can’t believe it, are you thinking on droping Nisemonogatari… ¬¬ Dudes, I’ve been waiting soo long for youre release. UTW RLZ!
    Keep youre releases coming!
    Saludos desde MΓ©xico! πŸ˜‰

  81. ZEROibis on January 7, 2012 at 5:30 am said:

    Unfortunately it is not just about sub quality lets say that CR could actually do a better sub that UTW. Even if that was true I would still want the UTW release b/c the video and sound quality of their HDTV rip encode far far exceeds the stream quality of CR.

  82. Just wanted to say that speed is not everything. I don’t speak for everyone, but for me, I don’t mind not watching a show for days (sometimes weeks) after an episode is aired, to wait for a better sub that actually does the show justice.
    While we don’t know how it will turn out yet, I do hope you guys can reconsider if the CR subs turn out to be a total disappointment and disservice to the show. For a show steeped in Japanese folklore, tradition, superstition and wordplay, I am praying that CR will not localize anything in a bid to cater to the casual Western audience.

  83. I totally agree with Actar, I don’t mind if I would have to wait, even a week if I have to. Also I don’t expect CR to put do the signs. Apart from that everything UTW does is also superior to CR.

  84. well the CR subs for nise are actually great, and commie is adding the signs, so were all set for the TV release.
