As strange a series as ever, Zoku Owarimonogatari is yet another installment of the Monogatari series that you know and love, this time attempting to move forward after years of mysteries and monsters. Araragi has finally finished his senior year of high school and plans to have a promising future ahead of him, but it seems like that will be a little difficult while the past continues to haunt him. Excitingly enough, we get yet another series full of our favorite characters and a new story to love. 

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end with Zoku Owarimonogatari being no different. If you've completed the series, you're probably looking for the next show to get hooked on before the hole left behind by this series becomes glaring. We have several perfect titles that have all your favorite supernatural girls; classics like Spice and Wolf that feature an older world with a strange woman or current series like Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai where a young girl wears a scandalous outfit just to be seen are all excellent follow-ups.

Where do deities go when the world moves beyond them? Holo, a wolf deity that used to bless the harvest of the small town Pasloe, has become more myth and legend rather than fact. As Pasloe grew beyond her, she lost much of her status, no longer respected as she once was. The traveling merchant, Kraft Lawrence, arrives at her town and she offers him a deal; if he would take her to Yoitsu, she would be his business partner and help him make deals along the way; her ability to read people helps to confirm their wants. Thus, a journey begins between an unlikely pair. If you love weird girls who love pulling the strings of the male protagonist, much like in Zuko Owarimonogatari, Spice and Wolf is a perfect show to watch after.

When he's saved by a strange group of teenagers with mystical powers who call themselves "Mekakushi Dan," he's forced to join their group. Which do you think is worse, being a hostage or being forced to socialize with real people?
