One fateful evening, second year high school student Koyomi Araragi has a shocking meeting with Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade, the 'King of Apparitions.' She was blindingly beautiful, yet chillingly terrifying. She was a painfully merciless, legendary vampire, with missing limbs. This is where the 'MONOGATARI' (story) begins. Written by NISIOISIN, 'KIZUMONOGATARI' is to be adapted into a trilogy: 'Tekketsu,' 'Nekketsu' and 'Reiketsu.'
