LN Review: Tsubasa Song (Monogatari Short Stories)

The second, and … Continue reading LN Review: Mayoi Room (Monogatari Short Stories)

With Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai approaching the end of it’s run, I figured now would be a good time to write up my thoughts on it, as well as its striking similarities with the ever-so-popular Monogatari series. (Also side note for you Monogatari fans: If you haven’t already heard, you can download the fan-translated Short Stories Book on the r/Araragi subreddit in the … Continue reading The Monogatari Series vs Bunny Girl Senpai
