The first two Kizumonogatari films have been confirmed as Collectors Editions, each with an artbook and artcards. Kizumonogatari Part 1: Tekketsu will be released on May 27, and Kizumonogatari Part 2: Nekketsu on June 24. The Kizumonogatari trilogy is based on the third volume in NisiOisin's Monogatari book series, which 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.
Girls' Last Tour will be released as a Blu-ray Collectors Edition on May 13. It will carry the 12 episodes of the series, a 144-page storyboard book, and a 32-page artbook. Yen Press described the story of the source manga:

Day after hopeless day, they look for their next meal and fuel for their ride. But as long as the two are together, even an existence as bleak as theirs has a ray or two of sunshine in it, whether they're sucking down their fill of soup or hunting for machine parts to tinker with. For two girls in a world full of nothing, the experiences and feelings the two share give them something to live for...
