This is a story. A story about choices and consequences, confessions resulting in love and rejection, and decisions leading to sacrifice and tragedy.

Koyomi Araragi's decision to save a blonde vampire and meddle with the supernatural resulted in his death as a human and rebirth as a monster. But this was only one of the countless tragedies and choices that Koyomi would be faced with, and he is confronted with the fact that his seemingly unshakeable and hard-earned relationships do not last. As strange oddities continue to manifest in the world around him, he is faced with impossible choices—to sever his ties with those he loves, or eternally remain a part of the world of monsters and apparitions and watch the world crumble as a result. To accept or reject a confession, and sacrifice his all for the sake of others. However, both of these paths could lead to tragedy and farewells.

This is a story. A story about Koyomi Araragi coming to realize the consequences of his choices.

Monogatari Series is not only direction and art, and this is the proof of its solid narrative.

For me the 'Second Season' of Monogatari is the most complete of all for the message and all that it encompasses without leaving something out, where all the stories that compose them offer you a common theme of self-understanding and maturation where you must face to life, full of symbolism and magical realism that serves to complement the metaphors of the message that has to be offered. The story to be so everyday Nisio Isin knows perfectly how to articulate it and get the full read more

The Monogatari series has alluring storylines in every instalment and the vampiric environment makes the setting very immersive. The fate of Araragi is satisfying as he keeps both vampire and human natures while the appariton dimensions will always interact with the mortal dimensions, also each of the respective characters that form bonds with Araragi follow interesting and symbolic concepts through the appariton spirits especially Hanekawa always takes the spotlight with her majestic style and nekomimi appearance. Shinobu serves as the core aspect of Monogatari as it is the catalyst for the vampire nature of the setting and also a very iconic figurine and idol. Hitagi read more
