posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The staff of the anime adaptation of NisiOisin's Zoku Owarimonogatari novel revealed at a stage event screening on Saturday that the anime will also air on television in Japan as six episodes.
The anime opened in 30 theaters in Japan on Saturday. TrySail is performing the ending theme song "azure."
NisiOisin's Monogatari Series novels began with Bakemonogatari in 2006. The novel series' "final season" ended with Zoku Owarimonogatari in September 2014, but it featured a teaser for "Monogatari Series, Next Season Tsugimonogatari." Four "Off Season" novels — Orokamonogatari, Wazamonogatari, Nademonogatari, and Musubimonogatari — shipped in 2015 and 2016. The novel series' new "Monster Season" launched with the Shinobumonogatari novel in July 2017.
The novel series centers on Koyomi Araragi, a loner and failing student. One day, his classmate Hitagi Senjōgahara falls into his arms accidentally, and he discovers that Hitagi literally weighs nothing. According to her, she has had this problem since the first year of high school. After Koyomi helps out with her supernatural problem, Koyomi then meets other girls who are all troubled by some manner of supernatural "oddity."
Aniplex of America is releasing the anime adaptations of the Monogatari Series in North America. The Owarimonogatari Second Season anime special, the most recent anime in the franchise, tackles the third Owarimonogatari novel. The anime premiered in a two-day television special in August 2017. Aniplex of America streamed the special on Crunchyroll.
The franchise received its first smartphone game, Monogatari Series Puc Puc, for iOS and Android devices in August.
