SANTA MONICA, CA (APRIL 19, 2019) – Aniplex of America is proud to announce that the MONOGATARI Series Second Season will be released as complete Blu-ray box set for the first time ever later this year. Based on the popular light-novel series by author Nisioisin, the MONOGATARI Series is produced by studio SHAFT and under the direction of chief director Akiyuki Shimbou, both of whom are critically acclaimed for their work on Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Nisekoi, and March comes in like a lion. The complete Blu-ray box set will feature all 28 episodes from the popular series including NEKOMONOGATARI WHITE, HANAMONOGATARI, ONIMONOGATARI, KABUKIMONOGATARI, OTORIMONOGATARI, and KOIMONOGATARI. The complete Blu-ray box set comes with six Blu-ray discs all encased in a rigid box exclusively illustrated by character designer and chief animation director Akio Watanabe, and also includes TV Omnibuses I ~ III, a collection of promotional videos and commercials as well as the textless openings and endings. The MONOGATARI Series Second Season Complete Blu-ray Box Set will be available starting June 25 with preorders open now at RightStufAnime.com.

Since the premiere of BAKEMONOGATARI in 2009, the MONOGATARI Series has given way to multiple TV anime adaptations as well as the three part feature length films KIZUMONOGATARI. The term “monogatari” refers to the Japanese word for “story” and alludes to a theme involving the peculiar heroines surrounding the main character Koyomi Araragi, voiced by renowned voice actor Hiroshi Kamiya of Natsume's Book of Friends and the Fate/stay night series. The second season dives deeper into Koyomi's relationship with these heroines, which include Tsubasa Hanekawa (voiced by Durarara!!'s Yui Horie), Mayoi Hachikuji (voice by Puella Magi Madoka Magica's Emiri Kato), Suruga Kanbaru (voiced by Persona 3 the Movie's Miyuki Sawashiro), Nadeko Sengoku (voiced by Cells at Work!'s Kana Hanazawa), Shinobu Oshino (voiced by Black Butler's Maaya Sakamoto) and Hitagi Senjyogahara (voiced by Puella Magi Madoka Magica's Chiwa Saito).
