Tanabata is a summer festival marking the annual meeting of lover deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. It's set for the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, or July 7 of the Gregorian calendar, and celebrated with traditions that include wearing yukata for summer festivals and tying strips of paper to bamboo, which are often set afloat on a river or burned after the festival. And, the tradition decorating Akihabara JR station with Monogatari messages continued this year. 

 

This year's included teasers, hints and coded messages for the long awaited Kizumonogatari. A 2012 release had been planned for the anime movie.

Appearing at the Madoka Magica Rebellion US premiere at Hollywood's Egyptian Theater in December 2013, SHAFT's representative director Kubota Mitsutoshi commented on some of the anime studio's plans, in regards to the delayed Monogatari prequel Kizumonogatari he said "please wait a little longer."

 

The Shaft project adapts Nisio Isin's third Monogatari, with the story "Koyomi Vamp," which follows Koyomi Araragi before the events in Hitagi Crab, focusing around his encounter with the vampire Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade.

 

Along with this was confirmation that a Owarimonogatari TV anime is coming in fall 2015 (an animator's resume had leaked the plans).
