Kizumonogatari Part 1: Tekketsu features the origin story of the highly popular Monogatari Series originally created by author NisiOisiN and is a direct prequel to the Bakemonogatari television series. The story follows the protagonist Koyomi Araragi and his encounter with the horrifying vampire, Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade A.K.A. the “King of Apparitions.” Koyomi saves Kiss-shot who was fatally wounded by offering his blood to her in exchange for his own life as a human. This highly anticipated film will be bringing together an all-star creative staff team including Director Tatsuya Oishi (Series Director of Bakemonogatari), Character Designer Akio Watanabe, who worked on the entire *Monogatari series, and Chief Director Akiyuki Shimbou ( Madoka Magica, *Monogatari Series, *Nisekoi). Studio Shaft will be responsible for the anime production.
The R-rated movie will make its US premiere in select theaters from February 26. The movie will play in Japanese with English subtitles.
