ZOKU OWARIMONOGATARI novel debuts!!! Plus box set news!

MONOGATARI fans! Are you ready for this moment?

After five years, three seasons, nineteen novels and a few audiobooks, the “end” has come… in a good way!

Today we are celebrating the release of the ZOKU OWARIMONOGATARI – End Tale (Cont.) novel by NISIOISIN in PRINT, featuring a brand new cover illustration by none other than VOFAN!

Get it from your favorite retailer:  Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books a Million, RightStuf, Target and more!

Cover by VOFAN

Just when we thought the darkness menacing the town had been identified, named, and tamed, clear and unclear mysteries of seasons past looming or surfacing, then resolving, not without tears, not without bitter sweetness, of course, but satisfyingly, in a tripartite finale, all loose ends tied up into, or at least with, a bow…

The End Tale continues—if only for one last time, in a bonus stage for the ages, as our softie of a protagonist who wished for all parties involved, including himself, maturely enough, to end up happy, sees his reflected image freeze in a mirror and regretfully, regrettably, reaches for it to find himself through the looking glass.

In an alternate reality where bits of the world have been flipped around, the hero comes face to face with the hidden side(s) of familiar faces, along with author NISIOISIN, whose bravura attempt to reimagine character possibilities concludes, with signature flair, the MONOGATARI series proper—thank you for reading.
