Based on the light novel by Nisio Isin, Monogatari is a supernatural anime filled with action, comedy, and fanservice. The series revolves around a third-year high schooler named Koyomi Araragi. After a vampire attack turned him into a bloodsucker, Koyomi has nearly transformed himself back into being human. However, he discovers a classmate of his, Hitagi Senjogahara, may be a supernatural being herself.
