Bakemonogatari Manga Enters Final Stage
posted on by Alex Mateo
The official Twitter account for Oh! great's manga adaptation of NisiOisin's Bakemonogatari novels revealed on Tuesday that the manga is entering its final stage in 2022.
The manga entered its climax in July 2019.
The manga went on hiatus in July 2019 due to Oh! great's sudden illness, and it resumed in September 2019.
Vertical is releasing the original novels in English, and it began the manga in October 2019. The company describes the story:
One day, high-school student Koyomi Araragi catches a girl named Hitagi Senjougahara when she trips. But—much to his surprise—she doesn't weigh anything. At all. She says an encounter with a so-called “crab” took away all her weight … Monsters have been here since the beginning. Always. Everywhere.
The manga launched in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in March 2018, and the 15th compiled book volume shipped on November 17.
Oh! great is known for creating the series Air Gear, Junk Story - Tetsukuzu Monogatari, and Tenjho Tenge, which all inspired anime. He has also worked on the story and art for numerous manga such as Burn Up!, Five, Himiko-Den, Majin -Devil-, Naked Star, and Silky Whip. Additionally, he worked on end card illustrations for the anime series Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge and Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches.
NisiOisin's novel series began with the two-volume Bakemonogatari story in 2006, and it served as the basis for the first anime adaptation of the novels in 2009. 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 October 2015, January 2016, July 2016, and on January 2017, respectively. The novel series' new "Monster Season" launched with the Shinobumonogatari novel in July 2017. The most recent novel, Shinomonogatari, shipped in Japan on August 19.
Aniplex of America is releasing the anime adaptations of the Monogatari Series in North America. The most recent anime in the franchise, Zoku Owarimonogatari, premiered in November 2018.
