posted on by Egan Loo
Animator Hiroko Kazui lists in her work history that she worked on the anime of NisiOisin's Owarimonogatari novel volumes this year. According to her listing, she did storyboards for "Monogatari Series Final Season Owarimonogatari." She previously drew the storyboards for the Monogatari Series Second Season anime from the studio SHAFT.
The three-volume Owarimonogatari novel is part of the "final season" of the Monogatari series. The first volume shipped with the stories "Ōgi Formula," "Sodachi Riddle," and "Sodachi Lost" in October 2013. The second volume shipped in January 2014 with the story "Shinobu Mail." The third volume shipped in April 2014.
The anime adaptation of NisiOisin's entire Monogatari Series of novels was "officially" green-lit, and the novels already inspired several anime adaptations from director Akiyuki Shinbo and the studio SHAFT.
The novel series' "final season" ended with Zoku Owarimonogatari last September, but it features a teaser for "Monogatari Series, Next Season Tsugimonogatari." Vertical will publish the earlier Kizumonogatari novel in November.
