Such tranquility can only be brought about by an equally tranquil clan, so it only makes sense that an aggressive member can disturb such an equation.

Fans of the series have been desperately waiting for the anime, and now we finally have a first look at the show.

Mononogatari ‘s spirits are different from others as they can possess old objects to gain a physical form called tsukumogami in the human world. To prevent them from creating chaos, the Saenome clan took on the responsibility of peacefully sending back these spirits to their realm.

The trailer features the protagonists Hyouma Kunato and Nagatsuki Botan and their past incidents that shaped their perspectives on spirits. Kunato is from the Saenome but is violent towards spirits due to a traumatic childhood event where a particularly evil spirit took away something of importance from him.

Botan is a young woman who has lived with six spirits like a family since she was a baby. Kunato’s grandfather sends him to live with Botan for him to heal from the scars of his past and understand that not all spirits are the same.

Moreover, the franchise also revealed a teaser visual featuring the protagonists.
