  • The sort of thing I like when I'm in the mood for weird
    Great art direction, storylines, character design and implementation. A nice mix of comedy, drama, and action. I wish I spoke Japanese so I could read the books.

    This is a filler sentence to pad this review.

    Great Anime - Very Underrated
    Very original style and the story is always captivating. If only there were more anime like this. The characters in this anime all go together well, and the artwork, along with the blank scenes, keep the intensity flowing.

    A good strange Anime
    This was an interesting anime. It is hard to describe the type of anime it was, but if you are looking for a strange, paranormal, with odd love relationships, and sort of harem type anime then this is the one for you.

    I am giving this 3 stars because they do not have the last 3 episodes. :(

    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 ...

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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 ...

  • 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.

    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 ...
