  • Amazing dialogue and animation
    what really astounds me in this anime is the breathtaking dialogue. Its so deep, complex and enchanting that it makes fall in love with the story with just the conversations. I have gain so much insight from an anime other than "guilty crown" or "anohana." However, this completely surpassed both in terms of language. A great anime i must say!

  • That's a lot of supplies up there.
    Bakemonogatari is a two world in one anime. Based off a light novel by Nisio Isin, we follow Koyomi Araragi after being returned to his life as human, well, mostly human. The anime starts out doing quick flashes from what seems to be Araragi’s loss and regaining of his humanity from his vampire state. And as amazing as the lead in is, its cut short after a few minutes to make way to the actual ...

  • There is no way I can be more confused or amazed
    This show is so unlike any other Anime that I have seen, it took me a few episodes to get into the mindset of watching it, just a warning. This anime elegantly moves the plot along through slightly related mini-arcs encompassing a few episodes. You will never be so confused or curious about an anime. I am eagerly awaiting more seasons, to learn about the back story of the ex-Vampire main character ...

  • Interesting and Touching
    The story of this anime is sublime. I was touched by every character's personal stories, and how the main character develops such relationships with them. The animation is of really good quality, though different from what you'd normally be used to. I love the music for the series as well. Each OP is tailored for the character they are about, and they reflect the character's personality or aura ...

    Never not entertaining.
    I imagine the guy who wrote this anime/manga was a Japanese version of Kevin Smith who was touched as a child. The dialogue is just absolutely amazing. Don't get me wrong, the art style and animation are great as well, but the dialogue is what really carries this anime. I can't really describe it either, it's very combative dialogue between the main character and everyone else. It's as if he is ...

    I wish this was food, so I could have it inside me.
    Based on the light novel series, that I've never read..., Bakemonogatari, not to be confused with Bakugan (which is horrible) or Gataroo Man (an atypical rhythm game) is a series of episodic, intertwining stories revolving around a cast of 'cursed' individuals. The main perver- protagonist, Araragi sets about, in each instance, to help his variable harem (all his friends are ladies) rid ...

    A surreal experience
    Watching this series is like walking through a dream. Each character adds to the quirky pervasiveness that made me fall in love with the show to begin with, and their struggles and interactions linger in my heart long after I'm done watching an episode.

  • Different take on the genre
    I don't want to repeat the reviews ad nauseum here. There is an order to watch this series, the good thing is this is the start!

    My first piece of advice is regarding the style they happen to have edited this with. There are lots of chopped in frames (almost like subliminal advertising) that you are going to make you feel like you're missing something. Well, you are to an extent but they ...

    Just thought I'd chuck a word in...
    Okay, so I read the 5 star review and I've read the one star reviews.
    -I've got very little to add, read one or two of each, and I must remind you the confusing series order is Bakemonogatari>Nisemonogatari>Nekomonogatari>Bakemonogatari second season.

    Alright, but I should add in quick summary, this particular series (because that's what this review is posted on) is visually beautiful but ...
