The official website for the Monogatari Series Second Season anime began streaming the short version of the first promotional video for the anime of NisiOisin's Otorimonogatari novel on Sunday. The video features Marina Kawano's new ending theme song "Sono Koe o Oboeteru" (Remembering That Voice).
The promotional video is narrated by voice actress Kana Hanazawa as her character Nadeko Sengoku, a 14-year-old girl (born on June 3) who was cursed by a snake. She reels off her favorite things: her favorite food is hamburger, her favorite manga is from the '80s, and her favorite niichan (big brother figure) is Koyomi.
The Otorimonogatari anime will premiere on September 21.
Tomoyuki Itamura is directing Otorimonogatari, while Akiyuki Shinbo is acting as chief director and series script supervisor along with Fuyashi Tou. Akio Watanabe is designing the characters based on VOFAN's original novel illustrations. Watanabe, Nobuhiro Sugiyama, and Taisuke Iwasaki are also serving as chief animation directors at SHAFT. 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 series premiered in Japan in July, and Daisuki and Crunchyroll are streaming the series outside of Japan. Aniplex of America announced in June that it has acquired the rights to both Nekomonogatari (Black) and Monogatari Series Second Season.
