It pains me a lot to give this series a 7. In fact, I really want to give it a 9 or 10 for this review. However, a few things stop it from being higher, actually only two things really. The first thing is simple. It never keeps the amazement factor rolling, the first three episodes were fantastic, but it slow goes to great, then good, then just plain OK. The second, and in my opinion much more important thing is that it stop just when things get interesting. It force me to read the manga from which this is adapted from and actually read more

Had absolutely no idea what to expect coming into this anime.
I pretty much stumbled across it by watching some anime OPs on YouTube and this one looked actually kinda good.

Then I came into it and things quickly...fell apart. But it was nothing too horrible, as this was a great watch.

As always, my reviews are generally spoiler free as all I do is express my opinion on some thoughts and don't go into any detail explaining the story.

Both of these Anime are dark Gothic revolving around the unusual romance a guy has with... a girl out of horror who just wants to be... normal... and not a monster.
MC's both deal with the supernatural quite well and it makes sense considering their outsider status.

The main females are both beautiful and strange, giving the romance plots similar feels despite the stories and themes of the shows being quite different.

Both shows have ecchi elements but in a more sexy and mature way (esp in Monogatari's case) than most anime can manage to pull off.
