Currently being written by the Sword Art Online light novels’ author Reki Kawahara, the film will feature animation production by A-1 Pictures and character designs by Shingo Adachi, and will be directed by Tomohiko Itō.
The past weekend also unveiled an English trailer for Tekketsu, the first part of the three-part Kizumonogatari film series. And according to this introduction and all the promo material, we can expect our fair share of Shinobu time:
One fateful evening, second year high school student Koyomi Araragi has a shocking meeting with Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade, the “King of Apparitions.”
She was blindingly beautiful, yet chillingly terrifying. She was a painfully merciless, legendary vampire, with missing limbs.
This is where the “MONOGATARI” begins.
Written by NISIOISIN, “KIZUMONOGATARI” is to be adapted into a trilogy: “Tekketsu,” “Nekketsu” and “Reiketsu.”
Brought to you by the renowned director Akiyuki Shimbou and studio SHAFT, the creators of the MONOGATARI series and Puella Magi Madoka Magica, this is the origin of the “story of apparitions” depicted in BAKEMONOGATARI.
