    I am a loss for words at this.
    If you told me somebody besides Gainax could make a bat sh** insane plot premise entertaining and fulfill my love of violence, sex, and ludicrous story telling in one show, I would have laughed in your face. Apparently I have never heard of Studio SHAFT. I think these guys came up with Steins;Gate which registers highly on my recent awesome shows I had no idea existed, but after seeing the first ...

    Too much going on in this
    I hate having to pause and go back to catch info flying across my screen and I found myself constantly doing that with Bakemonogatari. It's entirely too wordy for a subbed anime. Not that I haven't watched and enjoyed wordy animes before because I have, it's just that this one didn't have enough to make me really want to keep watching. It took me 3 or 4 attempts to finish episode 3. I found ...

    Weird but awesome!!!!!
    i'm too lazy to write up a big review but this is indeed one anime you don't want to miss! the anime starts off a little weird and confusing for the most part.. the story doesn't get deeper until the later episodes.. bakemonogatari and nisemonogatari are definitely on my top favorite animes of all time.

    Didn't like it at first...
    This anime gave me a headache on the first episode, and I didn't like the live-action pictures they would throw in, and I thought it was lazy to show still-life shots of things like stop signs and plumbing pipes, etc.... BUT.... somehow... somewhere along the way... the story and dialogue caught me and I just love it now. My opinion totally turned around, and I actually appreciate the ...

  • A Standout from all the rest!
    This is easily the best anime I have watched in Ages. I could easily see this becoming a 'staple' anime. It has a wonderful mix of action, romance, mystery, and horror. Its got style in a way all its own that compels you to pay attention.
    An anime to love.

    Only thing better is Nisemonogatari
    I love the story and especially the characters of Bakemonogatari. The animation ... well, not so much. At first it was not a problem because the story and especially the dialogue is A LOT to take in at once. Honestly, I did not even notice a problem until re-watching Bakemonogatari after first watching Nisemonogatari and also reading the parts of the light novel in translation ...

    This is one of those shows that is special
    There are a lot of great anime shows out there

    then there are those great shows that just take it to another level. They are appealing, playful, cheery, and cute, but make you think. They have minor twists and turns but the characters are what drive the events and ultimately, the show; not the events that drive the characters. Which just goes to say how well thought out these characters ...

    Monogatari series is as good as the books (so far)
    My first introduction to this series was the anime; it's also one of the reasons I got into anime in the first place. The books are great, the anime is great, if I hunted down a manga, I'm sure that would be great too. I look forward to the rest of the series (including Kizumonogatari).
