Introducing the popular Japanese anime “BAKEMONOGATARI”



“BAKEMONOGATARI” is a story set in a rural town in Japan at the beginning of the 21st century. The protagonist, a high school student named Koyomi Araragi, encounters girls involved with “oddities” and resolves incidents related to these oddities.


One day in May, while preparing for the cultural festival, Koyomi Araragi, a high school senior, learns the secret of his classmate, Hitagi Senjougahara, with whom he has barely spoken in three years. Hitagi does not participate in physical education at all and continues to go to the hospital, but in fact, she had almost no weight. After school on the day he learned her secret, Koyomi is persistently threatened by Hitagi not to reveal her secret, but he offers to help her with her secret without being discouraged. According to her, she met a mysterious crab two years ago and had her weight taken away completely.



Koyomi Araragi
The protagonist of this work. During spring break, he encounters the vampire Kiss-Shot Acerola-Orion Heart-Under-Blade and becomes her minion, which results in his injuries healing very quickly. Although the power he once held as a minion is incomparable, he demonstrates extraordinary combat abilities by letting Shinobu suck his blood. He is essentially a healthy high school boy who is naive and reserved. He is generally not good at interpersonal relationships and has no friends other than Tsubasa.

Hitagi Senjogahara
The main heroine of this work. She is in the same class as Koyomi, but she has no friends and always takes a break during physical education. She was the ace of the track and field team in junior high school, but her personality changed completely after she became ill. Due to past trauma, she has not been able to overcome certain things.


Tsubasa Hanekawa
The sub-heroine of this work. She is the class president of Koyomi and Hitagi’s class. She is a model student who is well-behaved, wears glasses, and is busty. Koyomi considers her to have a pure personality that cannot lie. She knows the whole story and the outcome of the incident that Koyomi encountered during spring break.

Meme Oshino
An expert in oddities and monster transformations. He wanders around various places collecting tales of oddities. He has an outstanding sense of smell that sees through everything, and he teases Koyomi while helping him. Koyomi owes Meme a debt of 5 million yen.

The charm of this work

The highlight of this work is the diverse heroines who appear one after another.
From the main heroine, Hitagi Senjougahara, to Tsubasa Hanekawa and Nadeko Sengoku, each heroine is quite attractive.

In addition, the story development is not only serious but also filled with laughable scenes at appropriate times, so you can enjoy it to the end without getting tired of the development.

Furthermore, both the opening theme and the ending theme are wonderful.
The opening theme, which changes with each subtitle, is an original song from “BAKEMONOGATARI” sung by the voice actors of each heroine.
