Launching the third and final season of NISIOISIN’s massively popular MONOGATARI SERIES, TSUKIMONOGATARI: Possession Tale brings the narrative focus back to Koyomi Araragi and his strange relationship with adorable tween Yotsugi Ononoki. To all appearances, she’s just a regular girl, albeit eccentric and affectless. But in truth, this living doll is, quite literally, a doll. An aberration, an apparition, a monster. Not human. Created originally from a corpse to mimic a human being. Even more disturbing than meeting up again with Ononoki is an encounter with Yozuru Kagenui, who employs Ononoki as a shikigami, a familiar. Araragi and Kagenui have history, as do Shinobu and Ononoki. History that includes knock-down, drag-out battles, in which Araragi did not fare well.
So a new confrontation with old enemies is not cause for celebration for Araragi and Shinobu.
TSUKIMONOGATARI features a Rogues Gallery of both just-introduced and familiar characters – Ononoki, Kagenui, Izuko Gaen, Suruga Kanbaru (who happens to be Ms. Gaen’s niece), Deishu Kaiki, Ogi Oshino, and more. And of course, Araragi’s little sisters Karen and Tsukihi make an appearance, leading to further inappropriate behavior on the part of their big brother. But the underlying issue here is Araragi’s aberrant state – and whether or not he will regain his humanity or become inhuman for eternity.
