owarimonogatari-03-ougi-black_hair-black_eyes-long_sleeves-maybe_no_hands-smart-clever-genius-uneasy-unnervingIt’s been 1 year, 3 months since Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?. It’s been 1 year, 6 months since Miss Monochrome, Non Non Biyori, and Noragami. It’s been 1 year, 9 months since Gatchaman Crowds and Monogatari Series Second Season.
