Malaysian cinema chain GSC Movies began streaming an English-subtitled trailer for the Kizumonogatari III: Reiketsu-hen anime film last week. Odex will open the film in Malaysia on Thursday.

Kizumonogatari III: Reiketsu-hen, the final installment in the film trilogy based on NisiOisin's Kizumonogatari light novel, opened in Japan on January 6.

Tatsuya Oishi, who directed the Bakemonogatari anime series, directed the film trilogy at the anime studio SHAFT. Akiyuki Simbo is credited as chief director. Akio Watanabe and Hideyuki Morioka designed the characters. Yota Tsuruoka directed the sound, and Satoru Kousaki composed the music.

The film earned 86,718,100 yen (about US$746,000) and ranked #9 in the Japanese box office in its opening weekend.

Kizumonogatari is the third volume in NisiOisin's Monogatari book series and is a prequel to Bakemonogatari. The novel tells the story of how protagonist Koyomi encounters the female vampire that would turn him and his journey to return to his normal life.

The first film in the trilogy, Kizumonogatari Part 1: Tekketsu, premiered in Japan last January, while the second film, Kizumonogatari II: Nekketsu-hen, opened in Japan last August.
