posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Amazon is listing Shinobumonogatari, the next novel in NisiOisin's Monogatari Series of novels, with a July 15 release date. The book will launch the series' "Monster Season." The book was first teased in Musubimonogatari, the latest novel in the series, in January.
The novel's description states:
What of the one who named the legendary occurrences that Koyomi Araragi confronted? Don't miss the tip of the blade that has long endured submission, yet still shines.
The novel series' "final season" ended with Zoku Owarimonogatari in September 2015, but it featured a teaser for "Monogatari Series, Next Season Tsugimonogatari." Orokamonogatari, Wazamonogatari, and Nademonogatari then shipped in October 2015 and January 2016, and July 2016, respectively. Musubimonogatari, the fourth "Off Season" novel, shipped on January 12.
Vertical published the earlier Kizumonogatari novel in December 2015, and began publishing the original Mongatari Series novels beginning December 2016 with the Bakemonogatari novels. The Kizumonogatari novel inspired an anime film trilogy.
Aniplex of America is releasing the anime adaptations of the Monogatari Series in North America. The most recently announced anime adaptation tackles the third Owarimonogatari novel. The television anime is slated for this summer.
