I can't believe a topic like this hasn't been created yet (if there has and I just missed it, feel free to delete this, moderators). I want to know who else is a massive fan of this series like I am.

I found out about Bakemonogatari on Crunchyroll this past April when I first started getting into anime (I was living alone on a budget and needed a hobby), and while it took some time to get into it, this series is possibly my favourite out of any book, movie, or TV show I've ever had the pleasure of viewing.

SO what I want to know is who are your top 3 characters and why? I suppose I'll go first.

1. Kiss-shot Acerola-Orion Heart-under-Blade/Shinobu Oshino:

Big surprise, given my profile pic, right? I love her personality and design, and her voice actor completes the image perfectly. I enjoy how even though she has taken the form of a young girl, she hasn't lost her pride as the most powerful of all "oddities". It's also adorable how much she loves donuts.

2. Suruga Kanbaru:

I've always loved tomboy-ish girls. Again, her voice actor is absolutely perfect for the role, and her behavioural tendencies towards perversion around Araragi (who is clearly taken) creates for some extremely humourous conversations and situations.

3. Karen Araragi and Tsukihi Araragi (The Fire Sisters):

This was hard to narrow down just 3 characters out of a simply amazing line-up, so I thought Karen and Tsukihi as a pair (you can't really have one without the other) shine just above the rest. Admittedly, the best part about Karen to me, is her character design. I love the way she dresses and how she carries herself (posture, stance, etc.). Tsukihi's personality and over-the-top cuteness reeled me in right away. Whenever the Fire Sisters appear together, you can be sure some shenanigans will ensue, and justice will be dispensed.

Well, there's mine (although every character of this series is amazing in their own way, yes even Kaiki, Yozuru and Yotsugi) so I want to hear yours!

Senjougahara is first for me. I'd follow it up with Shinobu. She just keeps getting more and more awesome as the series goes on.

EDIT: ^ Well now.

1. Senjougahara Hitagi

By far my favorite character in the series. Not sure what to think about her so far in the second season though.

2. Hanekawa Tsubasa

After the completion of Nekomonogatari White, she jumped way up.

3. Kissshot Acerolaorion Heartunderblade (because her previous name is so much cooler)

She's just interesting. Currently reading Kizumonogatari, that may change my opinion on this character, maybe.



It isn't as though the other characters are lacking though. I really like most of the cast.

I'm too lazy to post a screen shot but for me:

Shinobu, Senjougahara, Karen. Those three for now. If only they were part of my harem....

1. Hachikuji Mayoi - All scenes with her are pretty hilarious and full of kicks.
2. Oshino Meme - Cool aloha guy.
3. Oshino Shinobu - Had an awesome name, voice actor, and character design with OP sword (the lack of a tsuka and any fittings makes it pretty distinguished from all other anime swords that try to be as flashy as possible).
4. Kaiki Deishu - One calm and shameless criminal and the smoothest scumbag ever. I love how he interacts with others, he has some of the best dialogue IMO.
5. Araragi Tsukihi - Crazy psychotic little sister.

1. Hanekawa Tsubasa - I'm kind of surprised I'm the first to have her as #1, I've always found her to be a more sympathetic character than Senjougahara. Maybe it's just because I identify with her since I'm also a nerdy, glasses-wearing girl who had a hard time making friends in school because I was smart... also, I love cats.
2. Shinobu - No explanation needed.
3. Hachikuji Mayoi - Not sure why, I just like her.

1. Koyomi - One of the best protags ever, even if he is a damn lolicon
2. Hitagi - Hitagi's personality is so ridiculously my type it isn't even funny. I only wish she got more time in the series.
3. Tsubasa - The poster child for teenage angst, but I can't help for feeling for her. She always puts on a good face, even while going through hell.
4. Mayoi - Her exchanges with Koyomi were awesome. She was a surprisingly helpful loli-ghost.
5. Shinobu - Hoping to see more of her more grown up version in the future. Her reaction to being kissed was priceless.
