Aniplex of America announced on Saturday that it will begin streaming the Owarimonogatari television anime only on Crunchyroll on October 3. It also posted an English-subtitled trailer for the anime on Saturday:
NisiOisin's original 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 series will premiere on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, and Gunma TV on Saturday, October 3 at 24:00 (effectively, Sunday, October 4 at midnight) with a one-hour special. It will feature the ending theme song "Sayonara no Yukue" by Alisa Takigawa, as well as the first appearance of Sodachi Oikura, as voiced by Marina Inoue:
A new key visual features the heroine of this series, Ōgi Oshino. The tagline on the visual reads, "I don't know anything. You do know, Araragi-sempai."
Six screenings are previewing the one-hour first episode special in Tokyo on September 26 and September 27. There will be no guests, but attendees will receive a special present.
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. Aniplex of America will release a subtitled Blu-ray of Tsukimonogatari, the first story in the final season of the Monogatari series, on September 15.
