  • This is a confusing ride, but an enjoyable one
    This show's fast paced, episodic approach to world building is nice and refreshing compared to the majority of the shows I watch nowadays. I know I am a little late in adopting this fandom, but I eagerly await the time in which I can watch the rest of the series with much anticipation.

  • A masterpiece for many
    The *monogatari series isn't for everyone. It's a ton of text to keep up with and if you stick with it through a confusing maze of titles presented without regard to chronological order, you have to love it, which I did. The dialogue is sharp and visuals breathtaking to behold. The sequels go into more detail about the various female characters, who are possessed or otherwise changed, usually in ...

    Not sure if this is allowed.

  • Loved! So unique and great characters
    The artistic style in this was masterful... I haven't watched the seasons after this but am so impressed by the first 12 episodes that for that alone will give 5 stars. Sort of reminded me of furikuri but with a little less nonsense even. Great music as well!

    very disappointed and very confused
    I have seen some cool AMVs on youtube and also the fight scene between the vampire and araragi so I figured this would be a cool anime to watch. I was able to watch 5 episodes. It was Painful. this series is like 12 episodes or so and literally NOTHING happens in 5 episodes. All they do is talking. Talking nonsense crap that does not grab my attention at all!I checked out a few more episodes but ...

  • One of my favorites!
    Aggressive dialogue, abstract ideas, wonderful visuals, and original characters complete this immaculate first entry to the Monogatari Series (anime). The whole show is a work of art and a treasure among many of the greats. Recognized for many things, the show features a strange plot where a handful of young girls are afflicted with mental issues manifested in the form of supernatural entities. ...

  • Beautifully-Designed, Delightfully-Told
    From it's unique visuals to it's truly unusual story line, this is a series that compels you to watch, even when you spend part of your time scratching your head as the story is unfolded before you like some sort of kaleidoscopic origami.

    I have watched all of the variations on the series and still can't quite put my finger on why I am so enthralled on it - which is usually a good sign. ...

  • Fun, stylish, clever
    Obviously I'm just stepping into an author's universe with this series, so I'm still getting my bearings on the whole deal, but there's a tonal aggression and a sharp design sense here that I find deeply appealing. Points off for loli stuff though, not funny, let's try harder?

  • Word play masterpiece
    Short story, a mastery of wordplay and talking through conflicts rather than fighting.

    Long story, it is a story that focuses on an semi-vampire that uses his regeneration powers to constantly talk through situations with other monsters while at the same time being chopped in half, knocked out, poisoned, etc.
    The only reason this review is 4 stars is because the reason the main character ends ...
