High school student Koyomi Araragi’s world does a back flip when he is bitten by a female vampire during the annual Golden Week holiday. Is that why every chick he meets now has a paranormal problem that needs fixing? With the help of old man Meme Oshino, Koyomi will discover a world of apparitions, gods, ghosts, mythological beasts, and spirits.
In Bakemonogatari, the story centers on Koyomi Araragi, a third year high school student who has recently survived a vampire attack, and finds himself mixed up with all kinds of apparitions: gods, ghosts, myths, and spirits. However, in Nisemonogatari, we pick up right where we left off and follow Koyomi, as the psychological twists delve deeper and deeper.
This rambunctious anime focuses on a ridiculously epic magic war founded by three magic-wielding families, who battle for the chance to make a wish at the Holy Grail.
