Introduced Characters Edit

Presentation Edit

See also: Bakemonogatari (anime series)#Presentation and Nisemonogatari (anime series)#Presentation

As the first adaptation of Final Season, Tsukimonogatari introduced a new, revamped look for the series. Over all, visuals appear to be noticeably crisper than past adaptations, implying Shaft may have received new equipment to improve the quality of their HD digital animation. Character design also seems to be constantly consistent, and stays especially true to the Akio Watanabe design.

A lot of techniques are also new or drastically reformed, making this adaptation appear to be the point in which director Tomoyuki Itamura started to develop his own style of Monogatari adaptation that starkly contrasts with that of original director Tatsuya Oishi. The following lists techniques that are either new, altered, or notable in some way.

Screen Flashes Edit

Tsuki screen flash

Screen flashes effectively work the same as always, but have an entirely new presentation. Chapter numbers and text flashes generally appear on a new, realistic scrapbook appearance as opposed to the traditional solid color backgrounds. These flashes can also sometimes have a movement or animation to them, along with a sound effect.

Arc Specific Screen Flash Styles Edit

Tsuki chapter

While somewhat present in past adaptations, Tsukimonogatari introduces full on, arc themed flash styles. While future TV adaptations still keep the realistic paper aesthetic, they each look completely different from each other.

Non-literal / Teleporting Locations Edit

Tsukimonogatari notably features some of the most blatant examples of teleporting locations during conversations. Especially during scenes outside, characters are seen teleporting to different, fantastical locations mid-conversation without setting a new scene. It's clear these backgrounds are used to create more interesting visuals to complement the dialogue and aren't meant to be taken literally, as characters return to their original locations as if they had been there all along.

During this scene, the group teleports to an ice castle and field of snowmen before seemlessly arriving back at the ruins of the cram school.

Alternate Color Palettes / Intense Lighting Effects Edit

Color palettes in Tsukimonogatari appear mostly consistent, though brief scenes with intense lighting slightly change the colors of characters occasionally. Notably, the shade of orange found on Ononoki's clothes usually appears to be paler than past adaptations, though this seems to mostly be because of the lighting.

VOFAN Artwork References Edit

One scene showing Ononoki underwater seems to reference her character page found in the Tsukimonogatari light novel.

Music Edit

Tsukimonogatari features Kei Haneoka as the composer for the second time in the series, again providing music with a longer, more emotional free form style.

The theme song is Orange Mint and is preformed by Saori Hayami, the voice of Ononoki Yotsugi. The closing theme is Border, written by meg rock and performed by ClariS.
