Man, Nisio Isin is a genius. The way that almost every previous story was woven together in the end was really quite masterful. It makes you wonder if he had it all planned from the beginning or if he's just a master of improvisation (probably a mix of both.)

7/10 from my part to this season? Is there anything else left to adapt?


Yep. 6 more novels currently out, 5 more novels already planned past what's already out, and a fuck ton of side stories.


Its good, but a shame at the same time because this story serves as a damn good ending for monogatari

Yeah, I was telling my friends that this conclusion seems so strong and final that the start of the next series is going to feel a little weird.

I STILL WANT THE HELL OUT OF IT.

Woah, well, let's see if SHAFT decides to adapt everything else, in the end Monogatari sells like crazy, this felt like a really solid conclusion tho, not sure how anything else will feel.

Thank you for the answer!

Absolutely perfect "finale"

everything connected so well. Koyomi's development man ;_; He finally saved "himself" for once had to look like a Youjo to do it xD

I didn't expect to feel that attached to Ougi when she was saying her goodbyes. was tearing up. The conversation was great and her spilling her emotions to Koyomi after he saved her was really well done.

Friggin Hanekawa xD And Meme with that quick thinking (I need a sidestory of his journey in Antarctica)

Shinobu and Koyomi's 'if u die I die' and "if u die I'll live another day to tell people about u" was tooo good. Was so happy to see Loli Shinobu at the end.

The last scene with Hitagi calling Koyomi his name was adorable.

PS...Karen got addicted to her onii-chan's brushing lmao

Me too, for a character that felt so empty at first, to have such an emotional moment

After Kaiki's adventure I don't care what it is, monogatari is great by itself with koyomi as MC or not.

That was just beautiful, I had to fight the tears from the moment Araragi saved Ougi (himself) till the credits.

Overall it was an awesome ride and I can't wait for the next adaptation.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

I was wondering this too - but I thought it might be Nadeko. He doesn't really have any reason to chase after Higasa, does he?

It did look like Higasa was the one holding Kanbaru back in the credit shot, though.

A terrific ending to the main monogatari series. Of course, there's still Zoku-Owari and a whole load of off-season / monster season spinoffs which I desperately hope get an adaptation. But wow, what a final arc. This is now the second anime entry of the Monogatari series to get a 10/10 from me, MSSS being the first. Everything is wrapped up so nicely.

I had already been spoiled that Ougi was an apparition of Koyomi's reckless self-criticism, but I did not know that Oshino would make a return, or that Mayoi would become a God. And it all makes sense! Just brilliant. It's sad that it's over, but again, it's not really over all the while Nisio Isin knows that this series prints money!

LOL Hanekawa legit went all the way to Antarctica to find Meme? What a boss. In the end, Meme was the one who saved the day, which just goes to show that memes save lives. Especially the dank ones.

Shitty jokes aside though, I really liked the conclusion to this story. I know there's more content after this, but this really felt like the perfect ending, so it'll feel kind of weird to see more stuff adapted. I don't really have much to say about this, but I would have liked to get even just one line from Kanbaru. Oh well, solid 7/10 for this.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Actually people might think this is the ending of the main story but it is not. Not even close.

We have Zoko-Owari which is the real ending and shows everyone and how they moved on after the events.

We also have some arcs that shows us the future like Araragi after collage and working as
and his relationship with Hitagi etc.

So this ending we got just concludes the Owari.

I have just one question... When Hanekawa said she sold a piece of her brain did she meant it literally or was it a metaphor for something else?

That aside, Owarimonogatari Season 2 saved this anime season!
(I mean, it wasn't in danger in the first place but still XD)

Still, it is a bit funny how Monogatari appeared all of sudden in a day, gave the other shows of the year (not only the season) a big "F*** you!" and dissapeared for probably some years more

This was everything I could have ever hoped for an ending to the series. Seriously I'm speechless right now, 10/10 for the series, 5/5 for the episode.

I'm also hyped for any adaptation of the next volumes, even if this works perfectly as a finale. Hoping for something about Tooe.

OMG! This was so fantastic. I simply have no words. The first Owari season was one of my least favorite entries of the Monogatari Series so I was a bit worried, but this was absolutely stunning on every possible level. Everything came together perfectly Nisio is a genius. Also the way they adapted this was absolutely glorious.

I'm so happy right now. THe pinnacle of the Monogatari Series!

That was awesome, man... just seeing Meme again was great after not seeing him for so long, almost wish I didn't know Ougi was going to make it, I mean Hanamonogatari is after this time wise, so we already knew the out come.

Felt like a solid "series" wrap-up, I know there is more and I've no doubt they will get animated since its been said as much? but if for whatever reason it didn't happen I'd be happy with this.

Re-watched everything up to this like 2 months back and now I almost want to do it again! maybe after Zoku-Owari... and feel like I should go with timeline order vs airing order.

I've been trying to write something all day but fuck it all I can say is this is the best conclusion I've watched. i never gave a monogatari season a 10/10 because they're were arcs that weren't that good or didnt get me 100% but this is the first time I can say from episode 1 to 7 that each episode was a 10/10. and its fitting to end off with a 10.

of course, i know it's one of many endings considering nisio has more but it doesn't take away from this moment.

Ougi said it herself "It's just the end of one of your many stories"

I was going to ask the same question. I don't understand why no one seems to care, this is very disturbing. Does anyone have an explanation?

Maybe she's just a new girl in distress to show that Koyomi hasn't changed. Is it her holding Suruga during the credits though?

the novels says that the girl that Koyomi chases after is a first year
she may be Higasa but there's no confirmation (at least in the translations) that Higasa is a first year, she is only known to be part of the basket team

but the girl hugging Kanbaru at the end screen is indeed Higasa so idk

Yes, it's weird. If they hadn't put Higasa just after, I would simply have gone for the simple explanation, but now I'm confused. Well, if it's written as you say in the novels, I guess I have no reason to doubt.

Zoku is only translated like a 10% so there's not much else to investigate sadly :(
maybe someone that could read them in japanese could clarify this

She isn't Higasa. Higasa is a classmate of Kanbaru and, as such, a 2nd year - until Hanamonogatari events.

The girl is just a student who seems to be in some kind of distress, and so Araragi rushes to find her and help her, like Araragi always does. Hence the "You never change, Araragi-senpai" from Ougi.

It seems to be the most logical explanation, but why did they put the forgotten Higasa in the credits? Was it necessary? Don't they look a lot alike?

Ah this was perfect. The chat between Ougi and Araragi was just great as well as the fact he ended up saving Ougi from getting swallowed by the darkness. I was soo happy to see Oshino again because it's been like forever. Since Bake really. He accepted Araragi's apparition as his own niece making it a truth now.

Also seeing Hanekawa again was fantastic. She's soo awesome. Then we finally see that Hachikuji is a god. She 'll be the best god in town because she's simply that great lool. We also get the graduation. I lol'd at the chat Araragi was having with Tsubasa as they made their way into the school. Seeing Hitagi there and greeting them was bliss. Araragi eventually runs off chasing someone who's passed him by. Basically doing what he normally does because that's the type of person that he is.

This was a very great ending imo. Even though in the show only 6 months have flew by, its been years for us watching it and I couldn't have loved it more. Bless based SHAFT for making my favorite anime series and bless Nisio for creating it in the first place.

Even though this isn't the actual end since Zoku Owari, (the epilogue) hasn't been animated , I'm very excited to see more of the stories from the books beyond it get animated in the future.

the student Araragi chases is indeed a first year, confirmed by the ribbon she wears
the only thing not confirmed is the girl at the graduation screen, we should assume is someone close to Kanbaru, and the monogatari series is known for not even making models for the side characters, so she being there means that is either someone important or someone we know, and Higasa is the only option i can think of, even if its a long shot
but then again, nothing of this regarding the end credits screen is confirmed

hopefully someone can clarify this final part

have you read Zoku?
This is the ending of main story. Zoku is just an extra. Off season are side stories, I haven't read Shinobumonogatari(Monster season) yet but my guess is it's the same as Zoku.

As much as I wanted the main storyline to continue, I have to admit... This is a truly great way to finish the series, as not only are the 3 arcs superb, but it also gives closure to every character. I give this season a 9.5/10

I'm gonna miss this series so damn much!

BTW, I am not an expert with the books so, can someone tell me if there are more books planned for the future and how many arcs have not yet made it to the adaptation??

Great ending. The solutions in this series are always shockingly simple for all the talk and build up, the actual actions the characters take aren't complicated. This arc was solved simply by Koyomi calling out Ougi Oshino as himself and for a twist, Meme Oshino acknowledging her as his niece.

Dam that was a wonderful ending. I remember a while back me and a classmate were arguing. The claimed Ougi was another version of Koyomi (didnt read novel btw) and I still stuck with the idea that Ougi was Meme's niece. I wonder who was right in the end lol. Anyways Shinobu back to being a Loli Shadow and Mayoi now a kami meaning she be devoured by the darkness. Also Hitagi long hair ftw.

Good conclusion, and good ending, it pleased me so much. Thank you Nisio-san for the story, thank you Shaft for making a good adaptation.

I like how Koyomi being Koyomi, in the end he still decide to save Ougi (or should I said 'himself'?)

Like always, even after the curtain closed and an arc ended, question still lingering here and there.


I can't get enough to see Shinobu here, lel. A powerful Vampire turn to be a loving/cuddle-able (or cud-able?) girl. She hug her Koyomi 1 eps long, and decide to be a loli where she can be spoiled by Araragi 24/7 :p

What an GREAT anime! Really amazing! Couldn't rate 10 because the whole episode was so intense and full of mystery and so thrilling and my heart was racing all the time and my eyes teared out of excitement BUT THEN the last last scene cooled me off too quickly. Usually that's what the ending song do for me but when I reached the ED I was already thinking and contemplating how great this series is and feel pity for my normie friends that don't watch anime because they're close-minded. Maybe if they tried a different approach, like switching ed with the last scene, I probably would've felt different, I don't know.
A bit silly, I recognize that but that's just how I feel.

Is it okay to feel dumber whenever I watch Monogatari Series? I mean, even though it gives you lots of hints, words and moments that makes you remember past scenes, I still feel too dumb for this, like I'm missing something (like brain cells). I legit feel like that.

ah, I see, whatever the route Araragi take, the outcome will still be the same, peaceful and happy ending.

She will be vanished, with the same rule that Gaen explained to Araragi in Monogatari series second season Mayoi's arc.

lel, pretty essential eh? thank you for remind me that. This Araragi is Ougi is Araragi made me slight overthink things and think Araragi would suffer some consequence if Ougi die.


We all know that this is the true reason why the ending is 10/10

Agreed.
What you type on MAL; simple smile emoji, :D

what happen on your brain and heart actually;
*Captain, the SHIP hit the iceberg captain!! the ship is now sinking!* <sfx sfx>

you know, this is f*cking damn cute, and this hit me more because I just re-watch Koyomi x Shinobu kiss scene another day [don't judge me pls], and to know Shinobu actually like it, it just make my heart melt.

*cough* sorry, I got carried away, just ignored this message pls

BRB gotta get some dose of Senjougahara Hitagi to cure this.

Pretty spot on perfect conclusion imo.

That said this season was basically entirely carried by Ougi Dark for me,not that Mayoi Hell or Hitagi Rendezvous were bad they were fine but really couldn't compare to Ougi Dark.

8/10 overall solely because of Ougi Dark.

Just binged watched the entire 7 episodes and they were perfect.

Watching Koyomi saying farewell to his adolescence in the form of Ougi was quite visceral, not to mention him ending up doing what he does best in the end, saving others (this time a physical alter-ego of himself) with no regard for himself.

Then the ending where Tsubasa, after running ragged for 3 seasons, coming back right on cue with Meme, and throwing up a "I win" signal.... I have no words. :D

With this, we've come to the end of the climax of our Monogatari story I guess. Just ZokuOwari and the other parts to fill in the gaps.... unless Nisio ever decides to revisit this wonderful universe of his.

Been hooked on this series since it's first premiered 8 years ago when I graduated from Uni. Can't believe it's been so long, and still so good. Where has the time gone?

This is the best ending for the series I could've hoped for. I know there's a lot more to come after this, but I consider this as Monogatari's pinnacle point. I don't think I'll be able to bring myself to watch more of what's about to come from this point.

Also, Araragi and Shinobu's relationship has got to be the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in this series. Even more than his relationship with Senjougahara.
