About OWARIMONOGATARI:
During the month of October of his third year in high school, Koyomi Araragi is introduced to a transfer student named Ougi Oshino by his underclassman Suruga Kanbaru.

Ougi tells Koyomi that she has something she wishes to consult with him. When she draws the map of Naoetsu High School, she finds something peculiar on there.

This discovery reveals a tale that wasn't meant to be told, and this makes Koyomi's high school life totally different.

This is the story that brings to light “what” makes Koyomi Araragi.

This is the story that reveals the “beginning” of everything. "About how I, Koyomi Araragi, am going to end... and begin. That's this story."

About OWARIMONOGATARI Blu-ray Set Vol. 3:
Koyomi wakes up to see Mayoi Hachikuji before him, the girl who supposedly had gone to the afterlife. She tells Koyomi that they are currently in Avichi, the lowest levels of hell. Koyomi is dubious of how Mayoi knew about the exact timing of his death and which hell he would drop into, when Mayoi tells him that she was there to pick him up by the request of a certain individual.
