    Distinctive Style and Imaginative Storytelling
    Many modern anime will exhibit interesting and unusual camera angles, this one almost reinvents the art of the camera angle completely, as to the art itself, the backgrounds are superb and the character treatment is excellent. This series also shatters the tradition of having the same music opener and closer (baring legal issues) for a season, I believe this one had five openers (havent ...

    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 most interesting series I've watched!
    Bakemonogatari is not your typical harem series with fun and likable characters. It has some of the most clever and original writing that I've seen in a series, courtesy of the acclaimed lite novel author Nisio Isin. The story, or stories to be more exact, are inspired by classic Japanese ghost stories (hence the title: Bakemono, or "Ghost" + Monogatari, or "Story" = Bakemonogatari, or "Ghost ...

  • Good anime...the leads are a good match!
    I hate, hate that they don't have all the episodes on here....drives me nuts! The show is a little odd and my mind would go a little crazy from all the weird visuals some times. I really would have liked to seen the romance develop a bit more.

  • We need more .... more of this magnificent peice of work. More I tell you.
    Story, 10 out of 10, Background, 10 out of 10, Characters, beyond memorable, feels like I see them in reality.... minus the myths. Overall the best show..... ever to lay my eyes on. To use the background.... as the actual scenic prop for each scene.... is outstanding, memorizing, and.... just pure awesome. Each myth has the proper closure when its announced and reflected upon, of course with some ...

  • great characters and memorable stories.
    The strength of this show is also one of its biggest weaknesses. The small stories keep things fresh but they seem to prevent an in depth story. The characters are interesting and the writing is very well done. The artistic style is different but works well with the feel of the show. The voice acting is superb and all in all it is a great anime.

    Read Quickly, Or You'll Miss Out!
    There's some fantastic dialogue here, and some wonderfully written, witty banter in the subtext, too. The animation is striking, beautiful and at the same time playful. These monster tales are classic in origin and vibrantly recreated to form a whole new level of myths, a delectable treasure for the eyes, mind and soul to enjoy.

    A very nice collection of monster stories.
    Okay, just for those who don't know, the title of this show roughly translates to monster stories, hence the title of the review.

    Now then, this show (Along with the other Monogatari series) has made it's way into my top 5 shows. I was highly impressed by this show, and it was much better than I expected it to be coming into it. I recommend it to anyone looking for something unique, or ...
