Koyomi History is an animated adptation of the homonym side story published in the Madogatari Exhibition pamphlet, written by Nishio Ishin (Also known as NISIOISIN), the Monogatari Series author, and it talks about Koyomi Araragi remembering the girls he tried to help.
This special "episode" is represented on a white background, it has no sounds (except for the characters voices)(this is why i have not rated the sound) and we can see all the main Bakemonogatari characters, with Koyomi as protagonist.
Also Koyomi History is placed (by the reading order) after Orokamonogatari, in the Off Season of the novel that doesn't read more

I might as well write a review for this as the vast majority of people don't seem to be able to understand what this short is trying to do. In my humble opinion, this is a masterpiece as it perfectly encapsulates the feelings of my experience watching Monogatari.
TL;DR at the bottom.

Story - 10
Since this is less than 4 minutes long, it's obvious that they have to be economical with there time. Therefore the story is simple: it's just Araragi reminiscing about the five main girls of the series and that's all it needs to be. Some may claim that there should have been 'more' somehow read more

When I see this special I think that it'll be cool, but no, sincerely I don't understand this special, but resuming it's the Monogatari's characters talking and/or asking for Koyomi, but it's not relevant for the story of Monogatari, it's only one more random special, that it's not worth watching if you want to watch it, isn't hard, you need only to search in YouTube for "Koyomi History", and you can find the episode subbed, different from some special ones, that only exist the episode non-subbed
Now, about the art, it's very good, as the normal episodes, but they're in a white space, with read more

The first review that I had to write because the subjectivity of this short piece of art has not been fully explained. I'll do my best to explain why this is bordering on perfect.

The Story: 10/10
The enjoyment of this short story is tied directly to your enjoyment of the main series as a whole. The way this story is framed is almost as if Koyomi is dying, looking back on the people that mattered most in his life, He has not forgotten them, they are everything to him. If you don't feel like Koyomi does here, if you don't read more
