化け物語 Summary from MangaUpdates:
Bakemonogatari centers on Koyomi Araragi, a third year high school student who is almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire. One day, a classmate named Hitagi Senjōgahara, who infamously never talks to anyone, falls down the stairs into Koyomi's arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs next to nothing, in defiance of physics. After being threatened by her, Koyomi offers his help, and introduces her to Meme Oshino, a strange middle-aged man living in an abandoned building, who cured him of being a vampire....
Kenn's Comment: Nisemonogatari is the sequel to the much lauded Bakemonogatari, this time focusing on Koyomi's sisters, Tsukihi and Karen. Like Bakemonogatari, I'm walking into this one without a clue of what will happen, except for the fact that everyone now has short hair.

The titles are rather tricky to translate when you've got a limited vocab. I originally had translated the title as 'Fake Story' as 偽 means fake. However, when the title is read, you get a portmanteau word, of 偽者 and 物語, meaning Imposter and Story, so technically the title should read ImpoStory.

Btw, the ED is by ClariS (of Madoka OP and OreImo OP fame), with their song by Ryo of Supercell. Irony (OreImo OP) was by kz (livetune).

PV: This PV contains brief parts for 化け物語, 傷物語 and 偽物語.
