This first film will follow the Koyomi Vamp chapter of the novel, which leads us to Koyomi Araragi’s first meeting with the vampire Shinobu, or, as she’s more formally known, Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade. Their story’s beginning is introduced:

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.
