Light Novel Review: Bakemonogatari – Part 1

Koyomi Araragi encounters two girls with very unique circumstances–and considering his experiences with the supernatural during Golden Week, this isn’t unusual for him.

One day when walking up the stairs, he sees a girl floating down from above. Araragi catches her but upon contact, he discovers that she weighs very little–like she nearly didn’t weigh anything at all.

On Mother’s Day, Araragi is walking in the park when he sees an elementary girl with a large backpack, looking at a district map. She says she’s trying to find her mother’s house, but as the both of them quickly find out, getting there may be more difficult than expected.
