Monogatari Off Season and Monster Season Anime Announced

Aniplex has announced that new anime adaptations of the Monogatari light novel series penned by NISIOISIN are in the works for 2024. Helmed by the studio Shaft, who also produced the anime adaptations of the other Monogatari light novels, they will now be handling Monogatari Series Off and Monster Season. A special announcement trailer greeted this news.

Off Season, which is comprised of multiple brief stories such as Orokamonogatari, Wazamonogatari, and Nademonogatari, follows multiple main characters with inter-spliced chronology. On the other hand, Monster Season is a series of other stories that occur while protagonist Koyomi Araragi is a college student after the previous entries focused on his high school years.

The following staff has been confirmed for the anime:

  • Chief Director – Akiyuki Shinbo
  • Director – Midori Yoshizawa
  • Character Designer and Chief Animation Director – Akio Watanabe
  • Overseeing Scripts – Fuyashi Tou

Monogatari typically follows protagonist Koyomi Araragi, who, in the events of the Kizumonogatari light novels and movie adaptations, becomes involved with a vampire known as Shinobu, or Kiss-Shot Acerola-Orion Heart-Under-Blade. Following those events, Araragi finds himself grappling with supernatural entities and occurrences that plague the seemingly otherwise mundaneness of his own life and those he befriends.
