While the anime versions of Monogatari Series light novels generally stay relatively true to their source material, like all adaptations, there is cut content and a handful of notable changes.

In general, the novels feature extended conversations and hefty narration commentary, while the adaptations have shortened dialogue and unique visuals. Occasionally, text flashes are put in place for narration and other text from the novels that is left out. Major plot points are mostly unchanged, though some story content is occasionally cut from the adaptations.

The novels are also notably more meta, featuring even more references to other anime, manga, and light novels and a self aware attitude in which the fourth wall is constantly broken. The novels even reference the anime adaptations, noting how certain parts may be hard to animate and mentioning voice actors of characters.

No male characters, including protagonist Koyomi Araragi, are depicted in novel artwork, so their appearances are more open to the imagination in novel canon. As such, visual gags such as Koyomi's expressive ahoge are only present in the animated version.
