Musubimonogatari is the fourth "Off Season" novel for the Monogatari series. The first three "Off Season" novels, Orokamonogatari, Wazamonogatari, and Nademonogatari (pictured right), shipped in October 2015 and January 2016, and July 2016, respectively.
The Monogatari Series of light novels inspired a string of anime projects from director Akiyuki Simbo and the studio SHAFT. The last light novel volume in the Monogatari Series' "Final Season" had shipped in September 2014 with a teaser page for the "next season."
Vertical published the Kizumonogatari light novel in North America in December 2015, and plans to release the Bakemonogatari light novel series beginning this December. Aniplex of America is releasing the various anime adaptations of the Monogatari Series in North America.
NisiOisin's Katanagatari novel project also inspired a television anime series, and his Medaka Box manga with artist Akira Akatsuki spawned two television anime seasons. NisiOisin's Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku (The Notebook of Kyōko Okitegami) novel inspired a live-action television series and manga series in fall 2015. NisiOisin's website announced an anime project for his Zaregoto novel series in May.
