More Monogatari always welcome
Very enjoyable episode, and to think it only revolved around a single (albeit funky) location.

As a Maths grad, I had to smile at Euler's identity: <- Just beautiful

It felt like a side story to me, but knowing this series, there must be more to it than meets the eye.
Ougi is just so weird - she just seems insidious. I hope they explain why she wears long sleeves, and why she considers herself as a male in Hanamonogatari - perhaps she's transsexual? I like her character either way.

Well. That was psychedelic. And reminiscent of a Pokemon episode Nintendo would probably rather the world forgot.

Great to see more monogatari even if it confuses me at times, it's unique style is great and it also gives us an interesting look at Aragi's character and personality. Also, while Ougi is interesting I have to say that she kind of creeps me out at times especially her eyes which if it wasn't bad enough that they were pitch black it gets really bad when the room turns dark and she tilts her head, something you can't avoid in this show.

Besides that the story was good, the art was very trippy, and the characters I like are back. It's good to have mongatari again and I look forward to more episodes.

Episode 1: Ougi Formula Parts 1 & 2

Yup Monogatari never ceases to amaze me. This first episode was just so beautiful and it was executed perfectly. That whole mystery, that way it all played out was great.

I like how it sets up for what's to come. Something that bothered Araragi in the past and how it affected him and why he had to face it one more time. The connection between Oikura and Tetsuro. Things are getting real.

As usual the animation should come with an epilepsy warning cause it was really colorful and unique in its own aspect. Really looking forward to more. Also the intricate dialogue is always a plus

Amazing. That would have stood alone well all on its own with no further episodes. Gorgeous gorgeous, and compelling and contemplative. Beautiful storytelling.

I agree with Swaggercandy that it was "executed perfectly." I'd been getting a little bored with the Monogatari series, but this restores my faith in the series. Actually, more than restores. Elevates.

Episode 1+2

My first go into the series and it seemed quite interesting. It felt confusing at times. but the flashback and narrative really helped me put some of it together. I'll continue to watch, but if I stumble upon a really confusing episode, would someone direct me towards the prequel? Also, Ougi can really pull off that mysterious and creepy ominous looking vibe.

Well, you've jumped in quite far in terms of airing order, but not in chronological order.

The airing order (with CR links) would be:
Bakemonogatari
Nisemonogatari
Nekomonogatari (Kuro)
Monogatari Series Second Season (Link contains Hanamonogatari as well)
Hanamonogatari
Tsukimonogatari
Owarimonogatari

Some are region locked, but if you live in North America, you should be fine.
NB: Bakemonogatari also had episodes 13-15, which aired on a website - I'm sure you can find them somewhere, if the first link doesn't have them all.

This series has a certain style to it, and you can safely ignore the very quick flashing scenes, as they aren't important.

It's always great to see more Monogatari.

Pure fun. I always found Ougi creepy and mysterious, this episode truly showcased it. I cannot wait to unravel more of Ougi's mysterious background and the new pig-tailed girl.

Thanks! Wow, I did figure I was quite behind, but didn't expect to be that behind.

In a way, I'm somewhat envious that you get to enjoy it all without waiting, assuming that it's your kind of anime .

There's also Kizumonogatari, the prequel to Bakemonogatari, which is airing in 3 parts, the first of which is starting in January 2016. Many people have been waiting 5 years for that one, and it was only announced yesterday.

I didn't expect new characters. She will probably become part of the infamous Araragi harem.

Loved the diaglogue. I like Ougi a little bit more now, but Ougi still comes off as somewhat menacing, a sort of secret antagonist. Wherever Ougi goes, something bad seems to happen. To others.
