Fanservice has always been a bit of a controversial issue. Some love it, some hate all instances of it. There's really no feasible way to please everybody when the reaction can often be likened to a dichotomy, split between 'too much' and 'not enough'. While Bakemonogatari is a series known by most for its unique art direction and character interaction, to say that it's removed itself entirely from sexual themes would be a flat-out lie. It's not much of a surprise then, that these elements are even more prolific in Nisemonogatari, for both better and for worse.

Nisemonogatari was certainly one of the more interesting anime of the season, not least for its trait of dividing viewers down the middle in terms of who enjoyed it and who didn't; this show, being the continuation of a well-known franchise, has attracted plenty of vitriol in the last eleven weeks, even though many people have been outspoken in its defence. But now that broadcasting is finished (even if the argument over whether it is masterpiece or merely the latest victim of too-high expectations has plenty of fuel still left to burn), I'm afraid to say that I couldn’t resist the lure dangling so read more

It might be a bit premature to say this, as (the infuriatingly-titled) Monogatari Second Season is still airing as of this review, but Nise is definitely the odd bird amongst the Monogatari series, always spoken of as an exception where the other three are the rule. And though I enjoyed it immensely, for reasons both wrong and right, it's an uneven mess from start to finish.

Nisemonogatari starts off sloppily, wasting the bulk of the first several episodes of an already short series reintroducing the cast of the first series, as well as the two new challengers: Ararararararagi's sisters, Karen and Tsukihi. They both fill more read more

"What kind of dance will we do during the ED?"

The imaginative, unique and frankly charming styles of director Shinbou & writer Nisio Ishiin have made a powerful return with the sequel to their Occult Detective hit. I shall rule out pre-emptively that this review is aimed at viewers yet to watch the show, and I shall also hesitantly mark out that yes- I am indeed an avid fan of not only the monogatari series but works by Nishio Ishiin respectively.

Undoubtedly, there is a mixed reception for the monogatari series, but for the sole purposes of writing a review for Nisemonogatari, I'll try my best read more

Recommendations

Both have the same Atmosphere,comedy and randomess.both male leads,Koyomi and Kou are practically the same and have to deal with weirdos around them plus they got the same Seiyuu.Arakawa uses aliens as the source while Monogatari series is using ghosts,vampires etc and both are by SHAFT
Both will hit you harder if you happen to be an older brother yourself. If you felt resemblance between you and your little sister's and that of Kyousuke and Kirino Kousaka, I'd highly recommend this, but you'll still want to watch Bakemonogatari first.
Similarly trippy styles of direction. Protagonists who mess with the supernatural in somewhat serious ways. Fanservice. Fanservice. Fan. Service.
While having witty humor, both are artsy, dialogue driven and character focused.
Both have a inhuman as the main protagonist.
and both tells about the daily lives of the main protagonist,despite of them being inhuman
There is some similar humor and some similar use of abrupt changes in animation style to show changes in characters' emotions. Both are not particularly plot-based, although Nisemonogatari has some plot, while Nichijou has no plot whatsoever. Both are pretty strange in general.
