    A beautiful romantic and haunting anime!
    My first experience with Japanese anime was with "Astro Boy" around 1965, so one can guess my age. I have seen many others through the Amine Channel and now through Crunchyroll, which I can watch on my 55-inch Vizio LCD TV with WiFi. At first I didn't understand what was going on, but as the stories are released, I liked it more and more. I see that this site will show only a few episodes at the ...

    As is, it is as it is, Monogatari, it is.
    First and foremost though also latest and most recent, I find it funny how people do not get that the show is presented in exactly the way it is meant to be watched.
    Do not pause to read.
    Do not over-think.
    Do not under-think.
    Do not collect 2,000 yen.
    Just experience.

    What one seems to remember most about the Monogatari series are its odd moments that obviously set it apart from ...

    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!

    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 ...

    Probably one of the more interesting and unique animes out there
    The visuals are stunning, the characters are intriguing and the world they inhabit is odd, but somehow you easily just slide into the world they are offering you. Having Crunchyroll have this available is amazing.

    HOWEVER. As others have mentioned, if you are going to bring a series here MAKE SURE YOU GET ALL THE EPISODES. I know there will always be issues when it comes to licensing...but COME ...

    A unique anime with beautiful execution
    Bakemonogatari is admittedly an anime I had difficulty finishing. Such is the reason I begrudgingly give it a 4 star review. That being said, when I finished the anime, I was not only satisfied but also glad that I did.

    The first thing that caught my eye was the distinct art. Directed in abstract imagery and contrasting colors, Bakemonogatari distinguishes itself from other animes in that it ...

    The Monogatari Series is a MUST WATCH!
    Since the first episode of the second season just aired, I decided I would write a small review to catch people's interest, because this is one of very few Anime I would rate as a Masterpiece.

    To start things off I will start with the shows only flaw. But it is also its greatest asset... The massive amount of Character interactions and dialogue. Monogatari is built around ...

    One of the greatest cult hits of the decade. *spoiler free*
    *spoiler free*
    I first watched Bakemonogatari when it first came out, and have re-watched it roughly 5 times as of today. I will be addressing the main aspects of the show in the following review.

    Story: 5/5
    The story follows Araragi Koyomi, 1/10th vampire and 9/10th's human; as he encounters multiple oddities (spirits and supernatural phenomenon). Araragi takes it upon himself to help anyone ...
