Cast comments have arrived along with the introduction of the characters. Please check out the impressions when the appearance was decided!
■ “Karagasa Tsukumogami” (CV: Yoko Hikasa)
A mourning god with a parasol. An existence shrouded in mystery, with an unusual presence.
He is aiming for the Nagatsuki family in order to obtain Botan, the existence that contains the soul “Marebito” that is the source of the Tsukumogami’s life.

My manager at the time said, “The role has been decided! This person is very strong and has very scary eyes” and showed me the cover of Volume 7 (laughs).
I was happy, but at the same time, I read the original work and found the depth and difficulty of the content. there was.
Along with introducing the characters, cast comments are also available on the official Monogatari Twitter (@mononogatari_pr) and official website (https://www.mononogatari-pr.com/). We will continue to disclose information, so please look forward to the follow-up report!
In addition, the theme song is also used in the video, and you should pay attention to both the opening theme “Dare ga Tame” full of speed and the ending theme “Private Room” with a beautiful clear tone! We have also received comments from each artist who is in charge of singing and producing the songs.

I was invited by John Kanda to sing this song.
Since the theme was “Japanese”, I tried to make the lyrics as much as possible with the image of “Japanese” that I think of!

This time, I am very honored to be in charge of the ending theme song for Chapter 2 of “Monogatari”.
“Private Room” is a song created with the theme of “words” itself, overlapping Botan-chan’s problems and us living in the present. I am very grateful that the ending animation was also very beautiful. Please enjoy it together.
What is Monogatari?
Aged utensils will eventually have a “heart” and become a tsukumogami. The vocation of receiving power from Saigami, conversing with Tsukumogami, and returning to the eternal world–“Saigan”.
Kiheuma, the next head of the Gi family, one of the Three Sage Houses, hates Tsukumogami after his precious human being has been stolen. Botan Nagatsuki, the head of the Nagatsuki family who lives in Kyoto, the thousand-year capital, lives together with six Tsukumogami, whom he loves as a “family”.
To Hyoma, who is trapped in the past and continues to forcefully block Tsukumogami, Sojizou tells him to “listen to their voices and guide them.”
The condition given by the grandfather is once again to spend time with his family at the Nagatsuki house as a freeload in order to identify the tsukumogami.
Terracotta Warriors and Botan have diametrically opposed feelings toward Tsukumogami. The two meet and live under one roof.
Human and Tsukumogami. Tsukumo no narrative that spins the edge.
