Synopsis

Araragi Koyomi is a third year high school student who is almost human again after having briefly become a vampire. One day, a classmate named Senjougahara Hitagi, who infamously never talks to anyone, falls down the stairs into Koyomi's arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs next to nothing, in defiance of physics and common sense alike. Despite being threatened by her, Koyomi offers her help, and introduces her to Oshino Meme, a middle-aged homeless man who helped him stop being a vampire.

"To be blunt, I just enjoy talking to you... so I want to talk with you more."
"If our opinions clash, let's talk it over." (Dialogue from episode 5)

'Bakemonogatari', cleverly translated as 'Ghostory' or 'Monstory', is about five not-so-normal girls that Araragi Koyomi, a vampire himself, encounters and attempt to save from oddities possessing them.


CHARACTER:
The main characters of 'Bakemonogatari' are among the most unique and complex I have yet to encounter.
Heroine Senjougahara Hitagi is a tsundere like half of all modern heroines in anime, but she is also 「ドS」, a sadist to an extreme degree, which is more common for side characters and rare for heroines. read more

I'll start off my review by saying one of my usual comments when I talk about Bakemonogatari: this anime is not for everyone. It's definitely something worth trying out, but I cannot guarantee that it will be your cup of tea. It's an interestingly boring anime that tries hard (and succeeds) to be unique with its eccentric style of story telling and world building.

Bakemonogatari is an anime adaptation of the popular light novel series written by Nisio Isin. The anime revolves around Koyomi Araragi, a high school student who's also a half-vampire, and his relationships with different characters and their oddities, along with the usual read more

Recommendations

If you like one of these male leads you should enjoy the perspective of the other. While Yuhari is really starred by the main female instead of the main male the females have a lot in common in terms of being independent, strong and confusing for the males to figure out.

Both shows feature limited but well developed for 12 ep anime series supporting casts.

Bakemonogatari is basically the more supernatural (Yahari is pretty much just another HS anime) and higher quality in every way version of Love Comedy but if you love the type of characters the leads are you will still enjoy Love Comedy a great deal.
Both anime have a very similar feel to them.
Bakemonogatari however, is darker than Arakawa Under The Bridge.
Arakawa contains more light-hearted random humour and is generally a more happy series, where Bakemonogatari is more about removing oddities which may end up killing people, etc
Bakemonogatari also contains random humour, but as I already said, it has a darker atmosphere than Arakawa.
The art is also kinda similar.
