KIZUMONOGATARI: Wound Tale - Cristina Vee, Eric Kimerer, Keith Silverstein, Vertical Music, NisiOisiN

Araragi meets a woman on his way home from buying porn (the most important thing that has happened so far is Araragi accidentally getting to see the class president's panties, and the porn is supposed to help purge their glorious whiteness from his mind). Here is what he has noted about her:

 

- First, that she has an archaic way of speaking.

 

- Second, that her hair is blonde (an unusual thing in his small Japanese town).

 

- Third, that her dress is now tattered, but was clearly once lovely.

 

- Fourth, that she is lacking in energy.

 

- And fifth, that she's missing all of her limbs. One leg was neatly cut off, while her arms and other leg appear to have been torn off (more ragged wounds).

 

Araragi has a bad case of verbal diarrhea - he can go on and on about nothing, and he took two pages to describe his classmate's panties (this is an audiobook, but he specifically mentioned that his description took about two pages). Still, you'd think missing limbs and bleeding wounds would be worth mentioning a little sooner.
