The official website for the Monogatari Series Second Season anime began streaming the second promotional video for the anime adaptation of NisiOisin's Kabukimonogatari novel on Friday. The promotional video is narrated by Koyomi Araragi (voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya), who explains that he will look back at the past of Mayoi Hachikuji along with Mayoi, the lost girl who died in a traffic accident over a decade ago.
The website also began streaming the preview for the first Kabukimonogatari episode on Tuesday:
Akiyuki Shinbo is directing the series and is acting as series script supervisor along with Fuyashi Tou. Akio Watanabe is serving as character designer and chief animation director at SHAFT, and Satoru Kousaki is handling the music. The cast remains unchanged from Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari.
The "second season" arc of the Monogatari series is covering the material from five volumes of the original light novel series in two cours or half a year.
The anime premiered in Japan last month, and Daisuki and Crunchyroll are streaming the anime outside of Japan. Aniplex of America announced in June that it has acquired the rights to both Nekomonogatari (Black) and Monogatari Series Second Season.
