Read full description of the books:
If there’s a quintessential character in Nisio Isin’s narrative, it certainly is Hanekawa Tsubasa –a core-rotten person who, far from just being self destructing, pushes her own darkness to other people. When she first appeared in Bakemonogatari, little we expected about her true nature. Back then she was just the busty megane best friend of Araragi. After the events of Tsubasa Cat we learned she was possessed by a cat oddity that let her relieve her stress. In Kizumonogatari, despite being a story about Shinobu, she is introduced as a key character for this series –the one who could force the protagonist out of his detachment from the world. Nekomonogatari Black is the story aobut the first time Tusabasa became Black Hanekawa.
When Araragi sees Hanekawa with a patch on her face, she tells him the story of her family or rather the people she coexists with: she was conceived by a promiscuous woman who then committed suicide, her adoptive father remarried but then died of overwork, the woman who had to take care of Hanekawa end up with another man, an abusive one who has inflicted many injuries to our heroine. As Araragi, who is still wondering if he is in love with her, grows frustrated upon Hanekawa’s impassibility about her circumstances, she finds a tailless dead cat and buries it. That’s the moment when the new oddity is born.
The setting and themes are surely interesting. While trying to avoid her reality, Hanekawa has fabricated an almost perfect and charming persona, but she keeps being hurt, both physically and mentally. Instead of taking all the pain for herself, Hanekawa will end up hurting random people and trying to kill her parents. In any case, unlike the great Nekomonogatari White, this is far from being the best novel in the series. It turns out to be rather weak, not because of the story itself, but because the way it’s written. That’s a pity because, just as Nisio, I find myself very fond of Hanekawa, a messed up character who doesn’t live to the tropes and the expectations of anyone: she’s plain wrong, she’s shameful, she’s profoundly real.
One big issue with this book is its poor edition. Nisio, famous for trolling his readers, decided that it would be a good idea to spend almost 80 pages with random chat between Araragi and Tsukihi. Monogatari is certainly a dialogue driven series. That is its trademark. Conversations, as it happens in real life, flow through deep and shallow questions. This strength if not managed smartly can lead to an abyss of irrelevant and bothersome matters. And while I highly appreciate the fetishistic moment between Araragi and his imouto’s foot (which was never animated because the director preferred the breast grope moment), the whole scene, which led to the distinction between love and lust, could’ve been cut to twenty pages, and the outcome would’ve been exactly the same. The same problem is repeated in different ways along the novel, making this book too wordy.
