I just want your thoughts and opinions on the series itself. It can be anything at all!

Just some topics to start!
Favorite Character? Why?
How did you start liking the series?
Watch the anime first or read the Light Novels?
Favorite Quotes? Gags? References?
Best Anime Season thus far in your opinion?
Why havent i been able to read any possible interaction with Shinobu and Hitagi?
(I really wanna see what kind of interaction they would have?)


Also I want your thought on the upcoming Hanamonogatari Anime?
Suruga Devil was the story i wanted to see on Monogatari Second Season but they left it out to my suprise, but they are animating it so no worries i guess. Kanbaru with long hair makes me like her more than Hitagi!

The Monogatari series is a pretty strange series. However for some reason, I really like it. I actually watched the anime first and have never really read the light novels. Since Shaft is doing the Monogatari series, you know for a fact that they will stay true to the source material. Truth be told though, I didn't like the series the first time around; the first episode was "meh" to me. I kept watching because I had minor interest in it, and I was glad to stick around for it. It's a really strange anime, especially with all the dialogue and Shaft doing their own thing with it. But I can't really hate it. I think my favorite character(s) besides Araragi would have to be Shinobu, Senjougahara, Oshino, and kaiki. While the other characters are good, these few just stood out to me.

The upcoming Hanamongatari series seems promising, and hopefully will clear up some things that were unclear in Monogatari season 2.

I'm not sure if this belongs in either the manga or anime forums, but I'm pretty pissed that most of the girls in the series now have short hair. I'm not a fan of short hair, thus whenever I see Senjougahara, Hanekawa, and/or Karen, my heart dips a little.

Its funny i had no idead what it was and i just randomly watched the first episode of Bakemonogatari and i too was mildly interested but decided to stick around and i dont regret it at all! The anime as well as the novels are written really well, I love what Shaft has done as far as how to bring it to life with all the dialogue and crazyness that goes on with it. I watched the first episode of Nisekoi and noticed how it pans alot to random shots of scenery and it just felt familiar so i lokked it up and saw that Shaft had done it and instantly i was like figures same guys that do Mono.!

I watched the series and then decided to read the series, and may I say that the book really enhances the anime. It's an interesting writing style and keeps your attention. At least, to me.

Not unless you count the H-Doujins made for the series. I found one for Senjougahara on Fakku, and it was faptastic.

As do I. She and Araragi have the most hilarious conversations. Shes like 10 but she makes him look like an idiot when it comes to life but she isnt that much of a jerk about it. Their little bits when she says sorry i bit my tongue are just pure literary genius. I dont think she really gone.

I want interaction between Shinobu and Hitagi too...i wonder why it haven't happened yet, or if the author is even aware of it.

Anyways, i thought i wouldn't like this kinda show, because right before i decided to watch it, i was mostly into shounen. It easily ended up in my top 5 though with the dialog alone (And shaft animation).
My favorite season is Bakemonogatari, though Nisemonogatari is pretty close.
Also, my favorite character is Kaiki, i hope he's still alive...

I never really had a strong liking to the series before until the second season came around and now I can fully appreciated the franchise as a whole and it's now one of my personally favorite shows. In terms of my favorite characters, that would either be Kaiki or Hitagi, can't pick, there both awesome to watch

I love it dearly. Monogatari Series: Second Season is one of my top 5 favorite anime of all time, and the franchise as a whole means a great deal to me personally. I've also written on the whole franchise extensively, more than I have for any other series/franchise.



Favorite Character: Probably Senjougahara. She's mesmerizing when she's on-screen. I love watching her. She's also just generally a fascinating person, and I'm really looking forward to the conclusion of her arc as a character. Everyone is fascinating in this show, though. Re-born Hanekawa has totally erased by earlier dislike of her. Araragi is a mess, and I want to see him grow into a better person. Mayoi was lovely. Karen is my profile picture. Shinobu. Ononoki. What I'm saying is that there isn't a character I dislike in this show (although I'm a bit ambivalent about Tsukihi).

Started Liking: Well, I watched the first episode of Bake a long time ago, didn't really care for it and dropped the show. Then our own hpulley spoke very highly of it to me on the forums here (ironically, that very thread was bumped today), which convinced me to go back and give it another try. I probably was hooked by episode 5. I didn't love it until SS, though.

Anime or LN?: I started with the anime, and unless the LNs get translated officially to English, I doubt I'll read them. The entire series has been green-lit, so there's no chance I'll get buggered by the anime system and never get to actually see the ending.

Quotes, Gags, References: I reference Hanekawa's catchphrase, "I don't know everything; I only know what I know" fairly frequently. Most times it's to myself, but I have said it to other people sometimes.

Best Anime Season So Far: Easily Monogatari Series: Second Season. No contest. It's fantastic from start to finish, although Shinobu Time is a still dull.

No Shinobu & Senjougaha: I think it makes sense. I think they occupy and dangerously similar position in relation to Araragi, and I'm not sure they can both exist in their current states with him forever. I think Araragi will have to choose one or the other at some point. It would be fascinating to see them talk, though. Shinobu is probably the only person besides Oshino and Kaiki (partially) who can match Senjougahara in a verbal battle.

Hair: Senjougahara with long. Hanekawa with short & white streaks. Kanbaru with either, she looks good both ways. Nadeko with snake hair. Oh, and Karen looks wayyyy better with long hair.

Thoughts on Hanamonogatari: I'm pretty much dying to see it. I was also thrilled when it got delayed, because Monogatari is a marathoning franchise. I will NEVER watch this show weekly. Never ever ever. I'm also excited that Kana Asumi is joining the cast, because she's my favorite VA.


Ask more questions about this franchise. I will answer them all.
