The official website for the Monogatari Series Second Season anime began streaming a short version of the first promotional video for the anime of NisiOisin's Koimonogatari book on Friday. The video features the third ending theme song "snowdrop" by Luna Haruna and Marina Kawano.
In the commercial, Hitagi Senjōgahara (played by Chiwa Saito) calls Deishū Kaiki (Shinichiro Miki). The conversation they have is as follows:
Hitagi: Hello, Kaiki? It's me. Hitagi Senjōgahara.
Kaiki: To think you would call me. What's up? Did something happen?
Hitagi: There's a person I want you to deceive.
Haruna and Kawano sang the series' previous ending themes, albeit solo. The third ending song as a duet, as well as separate versions will be included with each artist's respective singles when they ship on December 11.
The Koimonogatari anime will premiere on Saturday.
Tomoyuki Itamura is directing Koimonogatari, 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 six 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.
