Recently I started digitizing the Monogatari books that have been released in English.
So I've deiced to release the first part of Vol 1 here.

Here is Hitagi Crab:

Just so you are aware there will be some errors, I have proof read it (mostly).
If you happen to find any errors please point them out to me, I will have them fixed when the the full book is released.


Also please buy the official version.


Nice, how long did it take you to do this first part? Do you plan on doing the whole series?


It took me about two days, and yes I do. I currently own: Kizu & Bake 1-3, with Nise 1-2, and Neko black on pre-order. I'm giving priority to Bake as Kizu already has a decent translation.

Just finished up chapter 4 of Mayoi Snail, and calling it a night.
Seems like I'll be releasing it by Monday at the latest.


Thanks for the ebook, waiting for the Mayoi Snail and forth.


can you show me how you digitized the books?


Currently working on proof reading the first volume. Had a setback yesterday, but I'm hoping to have it out soon.

I use Microsoft OneNote's built in OCR.

I've now gotten part one to a state where I think it's acceptable to post.
Should you find any errors please let me know.

Next up Part 2.


>I'm giving priority to Bake as Kizu already has a decent translation.
Somebody already did Kizu, so there's no need to bother yourself.
And thank you, I'm really grateful.


You inspired me to take up this series, and I just finished this so far.

It was pretty funny, actually. I'm looking forward to the rest.


Then this was worth it.
I just finished up chapter 5 of Suruga Monkey, hoping to finish the story tonight.
I'll release a rough version of just Suruga Monkey when I have.

I just started reading
I noticed a few errors
I'll compile all the ones I find and then post them here
Still appreciate you doing this
Hanekawa a best>>20177


Thanks for that, it tends to be the case where you look it over and over and see no errors. Then you come back to it and spot one right away.

Also status update:
I'm currently reading vol 3, I haven't had much nice weather to read outside. Once I'm done I'll start digitizing the book. Hopefully I'll be done before Nisemonogatari - Part 1 comes out(June 27th).


Thanks for your work and for sharing. Araragi would be proud.


would you share nisemonogatari too?


File: 1.jpg (156.18 KB, 1920x1080) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

After some delays, here is a rough version of Araragi and Senjogahara's date in Part 3.
Enjoy, the rest is to come soon.

Yes, I have Nise Part 1 sitting on on my bookshelf right now. I'll be starting on it right after Bake Part 3.

Doing God's work buddy, been thinking of starting over on the series because of Kizu part 3 being released and I've pretty much forgotten most of the details.

>Somebody already did Kizu
Care to share? I only have a .pdf version of what I'll assume is BT's fan translation before they took it down, see pic related


Thanks! I'll be sure to read it.




Thank you!


Part 3 link is down


It's up for me, try again.


Thank you!
Really looking forward to vol 3. Definitely gonna binge read these.

I also plan on working on Vol 2 right after.






They might catch you soon.
Either way good job.
Maybe we can work together on releasing and licencing one day.


Thanks for the translations! Can't seem to find nisemongatari pt1 or 2 anywhere :/

Finished Nekomonogatari (White):

Up next is Kabukimonogatari


Nice! Thank you.
Hey, are you strictly Monogatari guy, or might you be interested in other Nisio Isin's books? Zaregoto vol. 1 and 2 have official releases by Vertical, but no one OCRed them. There are old releases by Del Rey, but translation is shit in those.


I'm not super into Monogatari but thank you for all the hard work you've been doing, you're awesome!
Also I'm an idiot so this might be a silly question, but are you translating all these from scratch? Extra amazing if so.


I've never heard of the series, but I'll try reading them and go from there.

I'm not translating them, I'm using the official translation.





Thanks bro, keep cool


Are the links for nise part 1 and neko black dead or is it just me?
Also, thanks mate.


Wah I didn't notice this, thanks yo

Looks like it.
Nise v1:

Neko Black (both mixtape and fuwafuwa give me upload errors for this for some reason):


It's down now, unfortunately.


I'll post it on Live when I get home, post something about it and I'll reply to you.

Too many pomf clone issues. Made a MEGA account to upload what OP made, plus Kizumonogatari. Not posting the direct link to avoid crawling to try and delay it from being taken down, even though it'll eventually come, but if you don't know how to access with the folder and key, just go to!folder!key (that is, after the /, paste the provided folder, and then paste the provided key. You can also just paste the folder, and then when the page asks for it, paste the key).

Folder ID:
Key for decryption:

Sorry about beating you to it.

Also, sorry about the sample size image. It wasn't letting me post the full size for some reason. But here's the full one:

Oh, and of course, thanks again OP. You're a hero we don't deserve.


File: acc5405480c26764e19ee18c8f….jpg (1.06 MB, 1920x1080) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

And after thinking about it, also added the Del Rey release of Zaregoto v1 and v2 to the MEGA folder. Both the epubs made by some /a/nons under the ZARE!GOTO/OENJA tripcode, and zips with the scanned pages.

By the way, I'd urge OP to please only pick up Zaregoto once and if you catch up to Monogatari, though of course, choice is completely yours.


since these ocr works of OP has been uploaded and linked to nyaa and other facebook pages.
just in case someone posts this mega link outside again, imma just clone these files so we have a back up or something.

Also I tried OCRing my Hanamonogatari book, it has too many errors, I can't type it all manually and spend the little time I have on weekends.


You could just upload the scans without OCRing them while we wait for OP.



Cool. Thanks for the heads up.



Looks good to me.


Post the scans and I'll do the typing


I'm currently having some computer issues, however Kabuki is mostly done.
Once I have the issues fixed I'll be finishing it up and moving onto Hana, for those of you who wish to wait.


Thanks for the update. We can wait. GL.


You could also do >>27553
I'm sure some of us would love to help you with the project. If you scan the full book and give us a zip with the pages, plus some formatting rules to keep your style going, we could take it from there, and then you can QC it and have a say on the final version.


First off, I really appreciate the offer for help.
I guess I should clarify I don't scan the books by cutting them up and using a flatbed scanner etc.The way I do things is using my phone to take a picture of the page, this normally includes my fingers holding the pages flat. Because of that, exif data, and possible other means, I'd rather not share the pictures. Working on Monogatari has become a fun hobby for me, over the past year it has been a good way to distract my self from life.
Perhaps I could help you set up a similar process to mine, and you could work on other NisioIsin books that people have been asking for?


File: e27ace81fdf39699d4fda093ef….jpg (342.77 KB, 1727x906) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

No, don't worry. I was just saying.
If you ever do decide you'd rather do it in a group with your phone pictures though, you can easily batch-crop and clean exif data, for example with imagemagick.
But if the process of digitizing the books is a hobby from which you get enjoyment, please, don't let us take it from you. You're giving us enough by releasing the result already.

As for the other NisiOisiN books, the Del Rey versions of v1 and v2 are already here >>27248 , both as scans and epubs, and the Vertical release is just a mildly retouched rerelease of the same translation, so don't let it bother you either.
That said, the first 3 volumes of Katanagatari are being released in mid November in hardcover omnibus form, so that's something to look forward to too.


We don't deserve you anon, thank you for your work.


File: kabuki.png (2.14 MB, 1502x2048) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Just finished Kabukimonogatari:

Hope you enjoy it, as for this release there was some odd formatting.
I used alt code 196, as well a CSS style to flip letters. Hopefully they work correctly on whatever you read on.

Next up is Hanamonogatari!



thanks anon
we dont deserve you
keep healthy and safe


File: 71369232_p0.jpg (524.54 KB, 1449x2048) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Thanks, man. You're nothing short of a hero.
It's also up on the MEGA folder now.

Finished Hanamonogatari:

Next up is Otorimonogatari, Enjoy!

GOTTA GO FAST. Damn, man. Also, hey, I caught you on that Zoku Owari thread the other day.
Oh, and it's up on the mega folder too now.

But yeah, thanks man. Absolute hero.


How did you finish all that in such a small timeframe? Damn, that's fast. Thanks you so much, anon.


way too fast
god blesses you


Bro, are you still doing this?
I really want some oxygen by reading this novel.


I am, Christmas was busy etc. However I'm progressing on Otori again.
Fear not!


Zoku Owarimonogatari is uploaded online, friends. Yey peace peace@!


Still waiting…


You're doing god's work anon
Looking forward to otori


Could you just upload the scans? Please…


Read >>27567 be grateful he chooses to upload anything at all. If you really can't be patient scrounge up 20 dollars and buy the book.


Holy shit the fucking entitlement you have. You're getting something for free and you're demanding OP put in work for you. Buy the book yourself if you're so desperate for it.


Life is a bitch, and I've been busy. I have to be in the right mood to work on Monogatari, and that mood hasn't come up much recently.
Please calm down about it being released. I do this not for the intent of piracy but to correct what I consider a mistake on the publishers end of not having a ebook format released. Personally I don't like reading physical books, I'd rather read an ebook in the dark killing my eyes.
If you find my releases too slow please buy the physical book, I ask you to buy it as well as reading this version anyway.

All in all, I will release Otori "when it's done", and I hope that is soon as I enjoy reading the books just as much as digitizing them.



just keep your own pace anon, fun things must be fun


Hi all, I finished Otori today. I hope you enjoy it, up next is Onimonogatari!


Didn't know uploading EPUPs was supported, cool. Good work as always.


its not lol

I fucking love you.

Up on the MEGA folder too, by the way.


do you guys have that imgur link that has high res scans of the light novel covers and light novel illustrations?

Can't really find it again in my hard drive.


All of the files are down, where can i grab these? Thank you for going through all this trouble digitizing these books, i personally have bought them all but i reaaaaaalllyyy want to own them digitally so they wont decay or age.



Hello everyone, today unexpectedly Kodansha Comics has released digital versions of the Monogatari series.
Right now you can get up to Neko Black on popular sites like Amazon or Play Books, so please follow the links below and buy them!

Does this mean I will stop releasing books?
Possibly, If they do not release the new ones I will. However I intend to stop so long as there are official versions coming out.

Again I ask, please support these releases even if you have already read my versions.


Well, whatever happens, thanks for your work thus far!


Thanks for the heads up. And for the work you put in. And crucially, for forcing Kodansha to release digital versions. YOU did this.

Love you, !/mJiPvNKig


Thanks for your hard work even if you stop from now on


Their versions will just have more Quotation marks during dialog since yours kind of lost their quotation marks in parts of Bakemonogatari part 1. Thanks for scanning your copy again!
