Aniplex of America has announced they have acquired two more of the Monogatari series, Nekomonogatari Black (which aired in Japan in December) and Monogatari Series Second Season (begins airing July 6th). Both series will be available for streaming, with Monogatari Series Second Season available for streaming hours after the episodes air in Japan. The four episodes of Nekomonogatari don’t have a specified date that they’ll be available to stream, but seeing as the two earlier series Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari are up for streaming my guess is it won’t be long. As you would expect, both of these shows will be available in retail packages at some point and Aniplex has said they will release details at a later date.


SANTA MONICA, CA (March 4, 2013) – Following its recent release of the Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari Blu-ray Sets earlier this year, Aniplex of America Inc. has announced the acquisition of both the Monogatari Series Second Season and Nekomonogatari Black. Both titles will be available for streaming this summer. The highly Monogatari Series Second Season will be available streaming just hours after its initial airing in Japan. Immediately following the events in Nisemonogatari, the second season of the Monogatari Series is a collection of stories featuring the entire Monogatari cast.

With so many questions left unanswered from Nisemonogatari, what will Koyomi Araragi, Senjyogahara and the others get into next?

Nekomonogatari Black will also be available streaming this summer. Originally airing in Japan this past December, Neokomonogatari Black is set as a prequel to Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari. Fans will enjoy being fully be up-to-date with the Monogatari Series. In addition to their streaming plans, Aniplex of America is also planning on a home release version of the Monogatari Series on disc. Details about the physical release will be announced on a later date.

“The Monogatari Series is a very popular title with a fan base that continues to grow” says Hideki Goto, the president of Animation Business of Aniplex of America. “With the intriguing story leaving fans wondering what will happen next, we look forward to giving the fans the opportunity to watch the Monogatari Series just hours after it airs in Japan.”
