The Shinobu time has finally come. The Monogatari anime’s official website is now streaming a promo video for the Shinobu Mail arc of the Owarimonogatari TV series that’s currently airing. While the video on the website is region-locked to Japan, it’s still available to view via YouTube.
Having covered the Ōgi Formula, Sodachi Riddle and Sodachi Lost chapters from the first Monogatari novel by NisiOisin, the anime will begin following the Shinobu Mail chapter from the second novel this Saturday, November 14th. The Owarimonogatari novel, released in three volumes in October 2013, January 2014 and finally in April 2014, is part of the Monogatari anime series’ Final Season. But while the Monogatari novels ended with Zokuowarimonogatari in September of last year, it featured the teaser “Monogatari Series, Next Season Tsugimonogatari.”
Crunchyroll and Daisuki are both streaming simulcasts of Owarimonogatari. Meanwhile, the Kizumonogatari novel is being developed as an anime film trilogy by Akiyuki Shimbo and SHAFT, with the first film due to open in Japan on January 8th.
