Kizumonogatari Part 1: Tekketsu
March 25th — a day during spring break. Koyomi Araragi, a second year student at Naoetsu High School, gets to know a girl named Tsubasa Hanekawa, the top honors student at his school. Tsubasa mentions a rumor about a “blonde vampire” that has been sighted around their town recently. Koyomi, usually a not-so social guy, takes a liking to Tsubasa’s down-to-earth personality. That evening, Koyomi encounters the rumored vampire. She is Kiss-Shot-Acerola-Orion-Heart-Underblade, also known as the “King of Apparitions.” Koyomi sees this blonde, golden eyed vampire lying in a pool of her own blood, with all four of her limbs cut off. She asks Koyomi for help, sprinkling her blood around. Koyomi gives Kiss-shot his blood as told to save her life. And the very next moment he awakes, Koyomi finds himself become her vampire kin. As Koyomi struggles to accept his existence, Kiss-shot whispers: “welcome to the world of darkness.” – Azoland Pictures

In the spring of his second year of high school, Koyomi Araragi met the beautiful vampire Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade. Koyomi saved Kiss-shot, who was on the verge of death with all four of her limbs cut off, but only at the expense of becoming her minion and a vampire.
“In order to go back to being a human again, you must take back all of Kiss-shot’s limbs.”
After receiving advice from Meme Oshino, an expert in the supernatural, Koyomi prepares to go into battle. Awaiting him are three powerful vampire hunters: Dramaturgy, a giant vampire hunter who is a vampire himself; Episode, a half-vampire who wields an enormous cross; and Guillotinecutter, a quiet man who specializes in killing vampires.
Will Koyomi be able to take back Kiss-shot’s limbs from the vampire hunters? Amidst the soft spring rain, the curtain rises on this fateful blood bath…
