A giant outburst occurred in A0535+262/V725 Tau in November 2009, which lasted approximately 30 days. We carried out spectroscopic monitoring at OAO and GAO from November 2009 to March 2010, from before the giant outburst to the rising phase of the normal outburst which occurred after the next periastron. The obtained H-alpha, H-beta and He I emission lines exhibited drastic profile variability during the observations.
