Hi, I'm Japanese reader living in Kobe.
I have a question of Bakemonogatari fan of foreigners. It is funny conversation including Japanese joke and pun that I think the most diverting point of this novel (or anime). But their humor is too difficult to understand for foreigners, because many of it is particular expression of Japanese, I think. It is similar to the "Manzai talk" show I'm feeling to read this. How many expression do you understand about humor of this? Please ask for me.
And... in Japan, it was released the latest book titled "Nekomonogatari (white) -Tsubasa Tiger-" in October 29th. This is the 7th volume of Bakemonogatari series (Bake 1,2, Kizu, Nise 1,2, Neko(black,white) ). And it will be released 4 more stories, March("Suruga Devil"), June("Nadeko Medusa"), September("Shinobu Time"), December("Hitagi End") in 2011, announced from Kodansha publishing. It's going to be great!
