    Great series, my absolute favorite, but...
    This series is amazing. The word play, the characters, the plot, everything about it is great. The only problem is that Crunchyroll has made watching it awkward. For example, Bakemonogatari is missing episodes 13, 14, and 15. Hanamonogatari is under Monogatari Second Season and the 5 episodes are combined in one long video.

    A Unique, Stylish, and Memorable Anime
    Story

    This was my third attempt to watch Bakemonogatari and I’m glad to announce that it does get better. In a world of fast paced anime, it can be hard to slow down and watch a show that spends fifteen minutes of a twenty-four minute episode in the back of a car. When I say that Bakemonogatari is slow, I mean it moves at a pace slower than molasses. Characters spend whole episodes sitting ...

    It was great, totally
    The anime is very interesting and appealing to the eye, which keeps me coming back for more. I love the Araragi as a character as a character. He's very relatable as a person, well, more as a guy. I do find that the anime does take some adjusting to because of the cut scenes that I'd have to admit are a bit quick for the first season. I did love that, even though I didn't at first, I came to love ...

    Non-chronological storytelling is part of the mystery
    For people feeling lost and sensing that you're missing something, relax. This collection of anime is all about mystery. Enjoy the ride. You aren't meant to necessarily know what's happened in the past. As you can see, much of the story has aired in a non-chronological order. That's part of the experience. I recommend sticking with the order the episodes aired.

    Sequential ...

    Unique and Interesting
    While reading other reviews,I saw some people saying it was repetitive,or even normal.They're opinions are okay,of course,I'm not against that,but there are so many reasons as to why they're wrong.The show presents an odd,yet somehow appealing art style,flashing messages on the screen and viewing the characters from odd angles to create a strange perspective for the viewer.The art isn't nearly as ...

    NOTE: this review lacks a synopsis, I'd also like to mention I tend to write reviews for people like myself who probably wouldn't watch something like this on their own. So all ou action junkies, like myself, will find Bakemonogatari lacking. But I've been expanding my pallete and this satisfied. It contains several interesting and diverse characters and a plot that focuses on the emotional ...

    not bad, but i expected more (considering how much this show is praised)
    I really wanted to love this show when I started it. It looked like something I'd like. The art, music and presentation were nice and stylish, but I wanted more out of the story. The main male character is pretty dull. Hitagi's parts of the story were my favorite, i liked their dialogues and especially episode 12, but some of the other characters' mini-arcs were hit or miss for me. Felt like some ...

    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 ...

    A Pleasant Surprise.
    I am new to anime and am at a point in my life right now I am just in it for the fun. I usually prefer the lighter ecchi comedies. I have noticed the Monogatari Series mentioned several times on r/anime but didn't pay too much attention to the reviews about it. I was just looking for the next lighthearted romp and this had a lot of episodes so I thought it might be engaging for a few weeks if ...
