All right, let’s continue on with the next arc: Mayoi Jiangshi.
I wasn’t sure what Jiangshi meant, or where it came from, so I looked it up, using the katakana we get in the episode. Not that I don’t trust the translation, but may as well search the source. And I was curious why it’s titled “Mayoi Kyonshi” (まよいキョンシー) but the translation is Mayoi Jiangshi.
Long story short, キョンシー is the Japanese word for the Chinese word, jiangshi, which is a “Chinese hopping vampire; reanimated corpse in Chinese legends and folklore”.

From one Nekomonogatari to the next!
Here we are with Tsubasa Tiger, which for me personally is one of the most memorable arcs in the Monogatari Series, as it’s the only one is told from Tsubasa Hanekawa’s perspective. And it’s one of the few that is not told from Koyomi Araragi’s perspective.Continue reading “Nekomonogatari: Shiro – Tsubasa Tiger, Part One”
This is it, the conclusion for Tsubasa Family as well as Nekomonogatari: Kuro. A lot happens here, so hopefully I’ll be able to cover most of it.Continue reading “Nekomonogatari: Kuro Episode 4 – Tsubasa Family, Part Four”
Tsubasa Hanekawa has been taken over by a cat.
After nearly killing Koyomi Araragi, Meme Oshino has decided to step in and take responsibility for dealing with this development himself.
We continue through the motions of the story that was already covered in Bakemonogatari, with more detail this time. Tsubasa Hanekawa has revealed that her parents are not really her parents, and that her dad had hit her. And now it gets worse…Continue reading “Nekomonogatari: Kuro Episode 2 – Tsubasa Family, Part Two”
