Monogatari Series Second Season (〈物語〉シリーズセカンドシーズン, Monogatari Shiriizu Sekando Shiizun), is the third animated series project which adapts the Bakemonogatari light novel series. Based on the preview, it would adapt the seven volumes of the Bakemonogatari light novels after Kizumonogatari, which had a theatrical movie adaptation to be released in 2013.
The tagline of the series is "The days of youth cannot end until everything has been seen" (青春を、すべて見るまで終わらない, Seishun wo, subete miru made owaranai).
In this being classified as the "second" season, this "season 2" explicitly groups the preceding series (Bake and Nise) as "season 1". The OVA/film prequels (Neko and Kizu) are not included, but could be considered "season 0".
