The series is based on the light novel series, Monogatari, written by Nisio Isian, and illustrated by Vofan. This will be the sixth installation of the series for the anime. It will of course fallow Koyomi Araragi and many of the girls with “oddities”. Check out the synopsis of the series and the trailer after the break.
Anime adaptation of the “Ōgi Formula,” “Sodachi Riddle,” and “Sodachi Lost” chapters from the first novel, as well as the “Shinobu Mail” chapter from the second novel of Owarimonogatari. This is the basic synopsis for the series.
The Monogatari series revolves around Koyomi Araragi, a third-year high school student who is almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire. One day, a classmate of his, the reclusive Hitagi Senjōgahara, falls down the stairs into Koyomi’s arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs nothing, in defiance of physics. Despite being threatened by her to keep away, Koyomi offers his help and introduces her to Meme Oshino, a strange middle-aged man living in an abandoned building, who cured him of being a vampire. Once Koyomi helps solve Hitagi’s problem, she agrees to become his friend.
As the series progresses, Koyomi finds himself involved with other girls, each afflicted by different “oddities”, including the ghost of a child called Mayoi Hachikuji; his underclassman Suruga Kanbaru; Nadeko Sengoku, a friend of his sisters; his classmate Tsubasa Hanekawa; and his own younger sisters Karen and Tsukihi. To deal with the spectres, Koyomi relies on guidance from Oshino and, later, from Shinobu, the same vampire who attacked him, now with the appearance of an eight-year-old girl. (courtesy of ANN)
