The Monogatari series is a parodic, self-referential occult and mystery young adult series created by the popular light novel author, Nisioisin which was adapted into a televised anime series which first aired in 2009. Since that time other anime adaptations have been released all coinciding with the novels upon which they are based with the most recent being the third series titled Owarimonogatari in 2015. The primary plot of the series revolves around a young man named Koyomi Araragi who was once attacked by a vampire and turned into a member of the shadowy undead himself. However, due to his cleverness and the aid of a old friend he is able to reverse the curse and is in the process of becoming human once more. With his newfound knowledge of the arcane he sets about helping others whom are plagued by forces beyond mortal ken, such as ghosts, demons, old and forgotten deities and even vampires. Koyomi's mettle is truly tested when he runs into a young woman who falls into his arms and weights nothing. Intrigued by the woman's weightlessness, Koyomi takes the girl to the old man who helped cure him of his vampirism which sets off a chain of events that brings Koyomi into conflict with his old nemesis, the vampire Shinobu - the very vampire who tried to turn him and who now occupies the body of a inconspicuous, eight year old girl.
