Written by novelist Nisio Isin, Monogatari is a light novel Japanese series. It has a complicated release order for both the novel and anime adaptations. The anime series is the work of SHAFT and was developed for 26 consecutive volumes itself. At present, there are 24 novels of the series and the next five are on the waiting list. This Japanese anime is based on a central story and also contains several short stories. Although the emphasis is laid on watching the series in sequential form but isn’t necessary.
The release of the second and final season had created a bit of disorder which was necessarily done to keep up the suspense. However, the series is connected to the main idea where all the characters are found to be connected to the same theme. Although watching the series in order isn’t enforced, below we have given a sequential order Guide for Monogatari Series.
