Anime company previously released the sequel, Nisemonogatari.
Anime company Aniplex’s North American subsidiary has announced during its Sakura-con panel on Friday that they will release the popular anime series Bakemonogatari.
However, the Aniplex USA did not specify on whether it will be released on digital platforms or on home video, but they screened the first episode on the event on the next day.
Bakemonogatari is a popular Japanese light novel series, written by NisiOisin & illustrated by Taiwanese illustrator VOfan, which was published in the Kodansha magazine Mephisto.
Bakemonogatari centers on Koyomi Araragi, a third year high school student who is almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire. One day, a classmate named Hitagi Senjougahara, who never talks to anyone, falls down the stairs into Koyomi’s arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs next to 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.

Its sequel, Nisemonogatari, was previously been added on Aniplex USA’s line-up, and all of its episodes are available on Crunchyroll for internet users in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
