NisiOisin Writes 2 More Monogatari Series 'Off-Season' Books in 2016

Nademonogatari, Musubimonogatari books revealed

Wazamonogatari, the second light novel volume in the "Off Season" of NisiOisin's Monogatari Series, revealed on Thursday that NisiOisin is writing two more novels for the "Off Season" titled Nademonogatari and Musubimonogatari. Both novels are slated for this year, but the novel did not note the order of their release.

The Monogatari Series of light novels inspired a string of anime projects from director Akiyuki Simbo and the studio SHAFT, including the most recent Owarimonogatari television series and the Kizumonogatari film trilogy. The last light novel volume in the Monogatari Series' "Final Season" had shipped in September 2014 with a teaser page for the "next season."

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 collaborated with artist Hikaru Nakamura (Saint Young Men, Arakawa Under the Bridge) on the Jūni Taisen (12 Wars) novel that Shueisha published last May. NisiOisin's Okitegami Kyōko no Bibōroku (The Notebook of Kyōko Okitegami) novel recently inspired a live-action television series and manga series this fall.

Vertical published the Kizumonogatari light novel in North America in December. Aniplex of America is releasing the anime adaptations of the Monogatari Series in North America, and will release the first Kizumonogatari film in theaters in the United States on February 26. The first Kizumonogatari film opened in Japan on January 8, and the second film is slated for this summer.
