Hello

I apologize in advance for my very bad English, I'm French

We do not have a light novel (paper version) in France, that's why I just inform me here.
Where is the torque Araragi / Hitagi in the light novel? We see them together more often after the season Nadeko (Otorimonogatari) ? We will have a little more information on them (on their couple aragi / Hitagi)

Again sorry for my english really bad, I'm doing my best. I'm impatient nature, and their relationship really intrigues me hehe.

No. You will not get your dose of Araragi x Gahara this season.
I'm sorry to say this but this is the truth.

This is unfortunate.
Even in season three + Hanamonogatari?

Zokuowarimonogatari is officially the last Monogatari, where it is possible that Nisio we do a sequel?
The Light Novel are where?

I keep a little hope

This stuff need a closure.
Another prequel maybe, but not sequel to me.

I don't quite understand your question though, but I assume that you are asking the current LN.
Well, the upcoming novel to be release is Owarimonogatari 1, the previous LN titles are Tsukimonogatari and Koyomimonogatari.

I'm an anime-only watcher with a question for those who've read a fair share of the novels:

Do you guys think that the novels have any literary merit? (Trying not to sound pretentious here, lol.) What I mean is, is Nisio trying to make commentaries of any sort on the real world, or did he write them pretty much for amusement? Just curious. Either way, I still love the series.

The way I see it the series originally started out as Nisio's way of just writing whatever he wanted. The way the stories were published showed that he didn't plan this to become a series the way it is now. Nisio even straight out says that he didn't plan on publishing Nise hoping that he could keep the stories for himself.

But of course when Bake got animated and made a shit-ton of money I guess he kinda got "forced" to write more. He certainly left himself some room to write more but you could tell he didn't see it coming.

So in the end I would say it was for amusement at first but now it has become a "job". As for if there are any merit it really depends who you are. It's not breaking any molds or contesting social issues but it is what it is. The stories breaks the fourth wall frequently to comment on the real world but it's nothing really groundbreaking.

However I would say that Nisio as an author in general does contest how stories are formulated.

When Nisio said he wrote this for hobby, it was just Japanese sense of modesty. Everything he writes tries to appeal to a certain ideal target, and Monogatari is no exception. The target here was people who are well versed with anime and manga. That said, yes, I think Nisio has his literary merits, as do many other commercial authors.

"Commentaries" is a big word, but through Monogatari you learn a bit of Japanese culture and anime cliches that perhaps you wouldn't notice from other sources. While it is meant to be entertainment first, that's what being a professional author is about. What's special about Monogatari is the psychological portrayal of the characters, which in itself would be presentable even if the work wasn't about anime pop culture, which is precisely what makes it unpresentable to the general public.

Basically, Nisio writes quality stuff that is worth your change. Not the best author in the universe, but he is entertaining in a thoughtful way.

Thanks for the responses, guys. In hindsight, a novel like Kizumonogatari with the pop-culture gag element is quite a bizarre combination. But he does make it work, if the anime so far is a valid measurement.

So i just read in wikipedia that there is only 26 episodes for the second season....so is hanamonogatari being saved up for last as a movie? or is it, maybe, saved since the events in it don't happen literally after all the book.

It's probably gonna be an OVA like Kuro. It's saved bacause Shaft has shit scheduling and can't handle 2 cour seasons. It's the one book that was chosen because it does indeed happen after everything else. However the books published after it references it so the anime is not gonna catch those stuff.

For example in Hana a character called Rouka appears and is reference in Koi. Mayoi's "death" is also foreshadowed in Hana.

No, we still don't know what Episode and Gaen did together.

Kaiki also had dental implants in Hana, a reference to Koi.

In Nisemonogatari, Nadeko had a special closet in her room that she wouldn't let Araragi look in. Had a lot of locks and bolts on it, and Nadeko creepily said she wouldn't forgive anyone for looking inside, not even Araragi. I was thinking this might be explained in the latest arc, but it wasn't. Did the light novel ever explain what was in Nadeko's closet?

Yes, in Koimonogatari.
