Bakemonogatari : monster tale by Ishin Nishio( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's a girl at their school who is always ill. She routinely arrives late, leaves early, or doesn't show up at all, and skips gym as a matter of course. She's pretty, and the boys take to whispering that she's a cloistered princess. As the self-described worst loser in her class soon finds out, they just don't know what a monster she is. So begins a tale of mysterious maladies that are supernatural in origin yet deeply revealing of the human psyche, a set of case files as given to unexpected feeling as it is to irreverent humor. So begins the legendary novel that kicked off the MONOGATARI series, whose anime adaptations have enjoyed international popularity and critical acclaim. This first of three parts introduces Senjogahara and Hachikuji, and fans of the blockbuster prequel KIZUMONOGATARI will be delighted to meet their favorite crazies again: the weirdly reliable narrator Araragi, class president among class presidents Hanekawa, shady problem-solver Oshino, and a certain pale, blonde former vampire
Kizumonogatari : wound tale by Ishin Nishio( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Around midnight, under a lonely street lamp in a provincial town in Japan, lies a white woman, a blonde, alone, robbed of all four limbs, yet undead. Indeed, a rumor's been circulating among the local girls that a vampire has come to their backwater, of all places. Koyomi Araragi, who prefers to avoid having friends because they'd lower his "intensity as a human," is naturally skeptical. Yet it is to him that the bloodsucking demon, a concept "dated twice over," beckons on the first day of spring break as he makes his way home with a fresh loot of morally compromising periodicals
Juni Taisen : zodiac war by Ishin Nishio( Book )

"Twelve warriors enter a death match, but only one can survive to win the ultimate prize. Rampage. Weep. Kill. Every 12 years, the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac take the form of warriors and engage in the ultimate battle royal. They face one another in battles to the death, using all the powers of their star signs, and the sole survivor is granted the ultimate prize--a wish. Any wish"--
Nekomonogatari = Cat tale : (white) by Ishin Nishio( Book )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nekomonogatari tells the tale of heroine Tsubasa Hanekawa from her own perspective, in her own voice -- if that can hold true for a damaged soul who, depending on who you're asking, suffers from a split personality or a supernatural aberration. The bone-chilling brokenness of her household, where father and mother and daughter keep three separate sets of cookware in the same kitchen and only ever prepare their own meals, and the profound darkness nurtured in the genius schoolgirl's heart, come to life, if that is the word, through her self-vivisection. As for our customary unreliable narrator, Araragi, we seem to learn revealing tidbits about him now that we have an outside view of him at last, while his lady friends Senjogahara, Hachikuji, et al, freed from his predilection for proudly inane banter, show subtly new faces to us via their female interlocutor. Welcome to the Second Season."--Page 2 of cover

The kubishime romanticist by Ishin Nishio( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fresh from unmasking an assassin on a posh island paradise, Ii-chan is finally an ultra-cool college student--jaded, sarcastic, and not exactly consumed by academic ambition. Now more interested in angst and anomie than in catching killers, Ii-chan figures that danger is a thing of the past. Wrong! There's a homicidal maniac loose in Kyoto, a perp with the soul of an artist whose talent is apparent in the inspired way he festoons his crime scenes with body parts. But then murder hits much closer to home. Hours after attending a friend's birthday party, Ii-chan learns that the guest of honor, a pretty co-ed, has been found strangled to death. What's more, Ii-chan is the prime suspect. The lackadaisical college kid had better hope that his crime-solving skills weren't just a fluke, because the killer is within striking distance ... of him"--Page 4 of cover

Imperfect girl by Ishin Nishio( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The improbably imprisonment that transformed "I" into a novelist continues into a third, fourth and fifth day. "U" obsesses over formalities, as "I" quietly coaxes her into taking care of herself. As this bizarre farce of a kidnapping stretches toward the inevitable breaking point, "I" starts to discover the truth about "U", a truth he should never have learned...". --
Nisemonogatari by Ishin Nishio( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlike ne'er-do-well former vampire Araragi, his two younger sisters Karen and Tsukihi, who attend a private junior high, are little balls of energy and charisma that their peers look up to. That the "ka" in Karen and "hi" in Tsukihi are both written with the character for "fire" isn't the only reason they've come to be known as the Fire Sisters. Karen is the brawn and Tsukihi the brains of a vigilantism that the pair sees not merely as defending justice but as justice itself. They can't encounter a harmful fad without trying to hunt down a specific source that had a motive for spreading it. In their big brother's humble opinion, there is something fake and precarious about it all. In this first of two parts, the immediate sequel to the legendary BAKEMONOGATARI plunges us into the middle of summer vacation in the mostly peaceful rural town where the series is set. As our hero and narrator can say from experience, however, teenagers with too much free time on their hands can get stung pretty badly."--Amazon.com
