Koyomi was first conceived by Akio Watanabe for the series Bakemonogatari, but was not actually illustrated in the original light novels. His first proper appearance was in Shaft's 2009 animated adaptation of the series, reappearing in the sequel series Nisemonogatari and the prequel movie Kizumonogatari. ln all appearances he is voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya.

Major Story Arcs

Koyomi Araragi is a normal third-year high school student with two sisters at home that make cameo appearances throughout the show...well, normal except for the fact that he's essentially a half vampire, and that everyone he runs into seems to be involved with an "oddity."

Oddities like a self-described tsundere girl who literally weighs 5 kg and can summon a stapler out of nowhere, a smart girl whose stress manifests itself in the form of a cat, or a lesbian with a sentient, demonic monkey arm.

Even so, Koyomi seems to feel that its his job to help these people out and free them from their oddity or at least get them under control.

Over the spring break Koyomi had a run in with a vampire and became one as well. However, a man named Meme Oshino helped him become human again


Powers & Abilities
