About Bakemonogatari Novel Volume 3

Bakemonogatari novel volume 3 features story by Nisioisin and illustrations by Vofan.

A class president among class presidents, a bespectacled model student who soars to the top of honors lists without fail, Tsubasa Hanekawa also happens to be a decent human being. True, she does have a habit of making single-minded assumptions, but they come from a good place and turn out to be fortuitous as often as not.

Loser extraordinaire Koyomi Araragi owes her his post of class vice president and a more significant debt of gratitude for her unstinting support during the darkest spring break of his life. All of it has blinded him to the possibility that his saintly classmate’s family situation might be no less adverse than that of his other lady friends.

Thus, at last, we face Hanekawa’s unlikely aberration in “Tsubasa Cat”—the concluding part of the legendary novel that captured the sensibilities of a new generation in the aught years and spawned an animated series that has won international popularity and acclaim—before the story continues with a Fake Tale…

Bakemonogatari's Last Arc Arrives to Break Your Heart Again!


The last arc of the first Bakemonogatari series was something of a gut punch in the anime and the light novel is very much the same. It doesn't quite have the same impact sadly but the adaptation had some amazing visuals to go along with the story so that can't really be helped.
Araragi's relationship with Senjogahara finally deepening a little while explaining her seeming distance and coldness towards him is a highlight and Araragi finally telling Hanekawa how grateful he is for meeting her when he did is still both touching and uh maybe too little too late but I rather liked those scenes.
That all said I like Araragi's weird back and forth quips and bad jokes with all the girls but they take up huge chunks of the books and I can't imagine all readers having a tolerance for that. Just a heads up.
A fitting end (at the time it was written) for Bakemonogatari and I'm looking forward to Vertical's release of Nisemonogatari!
