Synopsis

When a college dropout stops for a late night bite at a mysterious ramen stand, he crosses paths with a self-proclaimed deity of matrimony. This bizarre meeting sends the young man hurtling through a horrifying flashback to his not-so-glorious college days when the influence of a cruel new friend turned him from a hopeless romantic into a mischievous “black cupid.”

I think I'm not in the wrong here when I say most of us have probably thought of the best way to live life at one time or another. That can mean what you want to be when you grow up, your dreams, ambitions, goals, what path you want to take, and what you envision it ending up life.

Tatami Galaxy's unnamed protagonist is one concerned with exactly that. In seek of that ideal life, he desperately repeats the first 2 years of his college life , searching for the "rose-colored campus life", and the "raven-haired maiden" that supposedly awaits him.

In doing so, he is able read more

~Multilingual review, English & Español: The Tatami Galaxy~.

Life wouldn't be less than a matter of choices, wherever our life is right now is due to the choices we have made in the past, it wouldn't actually be considered wrong if we call Life the sum of choices we've made so far. I'm someone that actually don't believe in Fate, I like to think that we've the total control of our lives, the control of any choice we have to face, I like to think we've an unlimited amount of doors in front us rather that an only one to across.

Recommendations

Both are series that aren't necessarily parodies or strict satire. The Tatami Galaxy takes on an extremely mysterious and reflecting tale of "possibilities". Bakemonogatari mixes some mild to heavy predicaments with supernatural folklore to help enhance/clarify the significance of said issues.
Both have strange, eclectic, abstract art that will undoubtedly impress those with it's usage. Both have and make use of some fine music, but... are paled in comparison to their OPs and ENDs.
Both are quite new, and both set the bar for enjoyment too, as the dialogue and insightful observations will cease to amaze.


The Tatami Galaxy's novelty, manner of storytelling, and overlaying mystery is SOO fresh, so enticing, and SOOOOO rewarding that one cannot label it any other name except "classic".
Of course, one needs to see a few anime "brain tickles" first. But, it should work well either way.

Bakemonogatari's atmosphere is supplemented with standard anime fare, which will sit well with others, but might dampen the blow on some of the content the show has. Still, it's characters' are a bit more colorful than Tatami's, yet the topic's mixture with supernatural isn't so well done on some occasions. The ending also won't please some.
Both are chalk full of despair.
