Kizumonogatari – Part 1: Tekketsu & Part 2: Nekketsu
Tatsuya Oishi , 2016 (131m)
In anticipation of the final installment of the Kizumonogatari trilogy, which is premiering at JFF 2017, we present a back-to-back double bill of the acclaimed first two short anime features from the Kizumonogatari youth horror trilogy, which are based on a series of ‘light novels’ written by Nisio Isin and illustrated by Vofan. One fateful evening, second year high school student Koyomi Araragi has a shocking meeting with the mysterious Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade, aka the “King of Apparitions”. Blindingly beautiful, yet chillingly terrifying, this legendary blonde and golden-eyed vampire cries out for Koyomi to help her as she lies in a pool of her own blood, all four of her limbs cut off. He must give her his blood to save her, but in doing so finds himself re-born as her vampire kin.
