Amarimonogatari (余物語) is the 20th part of the Monogatari Series. It is the twenty-fifth book in the series overall and contains the stories Yotsugi Body (よつぎバディ) and Yotsugi Shadow (よつぎシャドウ).


Following Yoimonogatari, Amarimonogatari is derived from the first kanji of Yotsugi's name. Amari is an alternate reading of the character which means myself, surplus, other, or remainder.

The kanji also has the radical for man or human 人 (亻) hence Yotsugi's identity as a human corpse. Interestingly, it can be combined to the kanji of So (所) to make Yoso (余所), meaning outside (one's family or group), somewhere else, and strange parts.​


Koyomi Araragi receives a request from Iezumi,[Notes 1] an associate professor of linguistics: "Please save my child from my abuse." Apparently, they had heard from Sodachi Oikura that Koyomi is "an expert on child abuse." As Koyomi scrambles to take his beloved car to the associate professor's apartment, the scene of the abuse, he is suddenly confronted by Yotsugi Ononoki. He has no idea why she's tagging along, but the pair soon bear witness to an astonishing sight at their destination.
