  • The sequel to the hit series Bakemonogatari!
    SHAFT and Akiyuki Shinbou return to tell more stories of Nisioisin's acclaimed Monogatari series! While I personally didn't find the stories of this arc to be as interesting as Bakemonogatari, not to mention they went a little overboard on fanservice in this season, Nisemonogatari is a solid series that I have no problem recommending to those who enjoyed Bakemonogatari!

    The most unconventional harem in anime
    I recently reviewed Bakemonogatari. Two days later, after a veritable Monogatari binge, I'm back to review Nisemonogatari.

    Nisemonogatari revolves around the same characters introduced in Bakemonogatari. Indeed, at the start of the series, one of the characters says something along the lines of, "Animes get too confusing when too many new characters are introduced." It's the little bits of ...

    The Monogatari Series is a MUST WATCH!
    Since the first episode of the second season just aired, I decided I would write a small review to catch people's interest, because this is one of very few Anime I would rate as a Masterpiece.

    To start things off I will start with the shows only flaw. But it is also its greatest asset... The massive amount of Character interactions and dialogue. Monogatari is built around ...

    Bakemonogatari. Fan Service Edition.
    Bakemonogatari. Let's say you've seen the first season, but you're not quite sure whether or not you want to see the second season. Nisemonogatari, the second season to Bakemonogatari, is not an entirely different show, however, the difference is so clear, I suppose giving it a different prefix is quite enough to give it that sort of distinction.

    Plot: If you were to watch the series in ...

    This show is not for women.
    Sorry girls, but the fanservice will probably turn you off, as it is plentiful and gratuitous. As for the guys, I suggest you try to look past all the fanservice and appreciate the dialogue, music, and the art style because this is where the show truly shines. It's incredibly witty, hilarious, and downright interesting. I have never been so entertained by two people talking for 10 minutes ...

    Darkly Alluring and Intriguing
    Following the same characters as it's predecessor series, Nisemonogatari still has the verbal punches but loses some of it's innocent charms as the characters continue to develop their relationships as they head toward adulthood. It's well worth viewing for the fantastic animation and unusual tales, but be forewarned that there are some relationships here that will cause some people to sour to the ...

    What happened???????
    I was so into Bakemonogatari, and Nisemonogatari started out solid, but now halfway through all I get is awkward incestual fanservice and pedophelia. I don't even know what's happening in the story anymore because of how much of each episode is dedicated to it. I haven't watched it in a good week or so and I can't decide if I actually want to go back and finish it. I'm no prude, and I understand ...

    Can you really call it fan service anymore?
    For me fan service implies an occasional unnecessary panty shot or something that could be considered distracting from the story. What do you call it when the "panty shot" IS the story, and the plot is the distraction? Ain't fan service, that is certain. It's unfair to even call this series a harem. It is BEYOND harem. It is as though the writers aspired to push and push and push the boundaries ...

    Fanservice...but...good...kind of?
    Nisemonogatari, in short, is fanservice with witty and clever writing to compliment it. This wouldve gotten a 2 star from me, but the art style is spectacular to say the least, and was the series' saving grace.
    The sexy and random visuals to compliment the random and interesting conversations between the characters makes this series worth a watch, as you will be kept interested with eye candy and ...

    This isn't half as good as its predecessor
    I loved Bakemonogatari and was beyond excited to get more of it, unfortunately Nisemonogatari ultimately fails to live up to the standard set by its predecessor.

    The show continues its super-unusual method of storytelling, but the story just isn't as compelling this time around. Instead of five arcs spread across 15 episodes, this time there are two arcs spread across 11. The extended stories ...
