According to Nisio Tsushin, Aniplex has announced that Shaft will animate all the Monogatari novel series of Nisio Isin. The director is Shinbo Akiyuki. Iwakami Atsuhiro, the producer of Aniplex, said the second season of the Monogatari series (see below) will be animated in two cours TV series. Since Nekomonogatari (Black) does not belong to the second season, it will be animated separately. Iwakami also said it's impossible to release the Kizumonogatari movie within this year. The premiere of the movie will be postponed.

Monogatari Series
First Season: Bakemonogatari, Kizumonogatari, Nisemonogatari, Nekomonogatari: Kuro
Second Season: Nekomonogatari: Shiro, Kabukimonogatari, Hanamonogatari, Otorimonogatari, Onimonogatari, Koimonogatari
Final Season: Tsukimonogatari, Owarimonogatari, Zoku Owarimonogatari

Nisio Ishin's new novel "Himeiden" will be released on April 26th.

At least, with this, I'll know that there will be at least one anime worth watching every year for a long time. :D

that is such good news, at least for me
really, im so happy right now !

when i watched Bakemonogatari, i immediately fell in love with it
yesterday i finished Nisemonogatari (which isn't as good as Bakemonogatari, but still great)

and theres SO MUCH MORE to come?
thats just awesome

i really cant get enough of araragi + senjougahara

im wondering how long it'll take for all the novels to get animated+released tho
i really dont wanna spoil myself by reading the novels, but.. if it'll take too long.. maybe i have to : /

all i know is..for series like this, im really a happy end-fan, so i hope.. when it's all over.. araragi+senjougahara will both be alive+together !

Also, I liked Nisemonogatari. But the first season was kind of ass.
