In the promotional video, the main character Koyomi Araragi (as voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya) says that he will tell the story of Shinobu Oshino, a mysterious little girl who came to Japan 400 years ago. Shinobu was originally a vampire named Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade. Maaya Sakamoto voices the girl. Hachikuji (voiced by Emiri Kato) insists to Araragi that she did not want to come back to life, and tells him that his actions were in vain. Shinobu also tells Araragi that the darkness that has appeared is one that she had seen 400 years ago, and at worst, it could destroy Araragi's entire town.
The Onimonogatari anime will premiere on Saturday.
Tomoyuki Itamura is directing Onimonogatari, 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.
