Whether it is investigating stone shrines, tracking rumors, or simply playing hide and seek, Koyomi Araragi is always there to fulfill the requests of his friends from both the human and supernatural worlds. Koyomimonogatari tells a series of short stories involving Koyomi as he helps each of the girls in his cohort solve a mystery or kill some time, alongside previously unexplored problems in this essential prelude to his story's last chapter.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Koyomimonogatari adapts the second volume of NisiOisiN's Monogatari Series: Final Season.

I'm gonna get this out of the way right at the beginning of this review because the rest of what I'll have to say won't apply to the following statement: the end of Koyomimonogatari was awesome. As a set up for what's to come, it set the mood extremely well and created an atmosphere of tension and suspense that I enjoyed a lot.

As for the rest of this ONA season, if you go into it knowing what to expect, you're far more likely to enjoy it. The real merit in watching these twelve episodes (besides seeing the ending of them) is to hang out in ...

Many of the episodes feel rather pointless. As such, Koyomimonogatari is pretty underwhelming compared to the level of storytelling fans are used to. This entry is definitely for ...

Something I never talked about regarding this franchise is the wordplay in the titles, as the first two combine the last syllable of a word with the first one of monogatari. It’s lost in the translation, but the original names of Monsterstory and Imposterstory are cool because of that. Then later entries lost that because the connection of syllables just wasn’t there anymore. Koyomimonogatari doesn’t reach that level either, but at least it has a double meaning of Calendar Story, because it happens across many months, while it also means the story of Koyomi, as he is the main character of every episode.

Besides that, ...
