Shaft does something completely expected

A website banner and the Moonphase unsourced rumors blog say that SHAFT/Akiyuki Shinbo’s newest upcoming anime is a Nisio Oishin novel named Bakemonogatari. I read Zaregoto pretty recently and was only a little impressed, mainly because it had the exact same writing gimmick as every other Japanese book I’ve ever read, so it’s just as well this is just going to be more otaku jokes. I think SZS is their only other recent series not based on a bad manga, so it might be interesting, I guess? This genre is getting really overcrowded now, though, they should animate something else from Kodansha Box. Like Megatokyo.
