- 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).
