The bee apparition is now gone, and summer vacation where the phoenix apparition averted harm is over. Around Koyomi Araragi and the girls who started a new trimester, apparitions, or perhaps threats even worse, were creeping in ever closer. Tsubasa Hanekawa, Mayoi Hachikuji, Suruga Kanbaru, Nadeko Sengoku, Shinobu Oshino, and Hitagi Senjogahara. Their soliloquies, confessions—and farewells. 6 new stories are starting now.

Walking to school one day Tsubasa Hanekawa encounters a huge white tiger apparition at a crossroads that talks to her. The next day her house burns down. Homeless, and not wanting to stay with her family, she lies and tells them she has a place to stay, but instead sleeps in the old cram school. She's awakened by an angry and upset Hitagi Senjogahara who ridicules her for worrying her and drags her to her place to stay instead. The two of them soon discover that Araragi has gone missing and has urged them in a text message not to look for him.

I think I can say for all those who have watched Bakemonogatari that the quality of the anime series went down considerably after Nisemonogatari aired. Fourteen long months have passed since the fanservice-ridden sequel aired, and I'm quite happy to say that the series has risen from its ashes. Many fans were speculating after the first couple of episodes if this anime adaptation of 5 out of 6 novels of the second Monogatari saga, could finally overcome Bakemonogatari, the anime that set the standard for the franchise. And I think it did.

I'll go straight to the point: Second Season had lesser fan service than read more

Everyone wants to hear or tell a story people will remember by. It doesn’t matter if the story is fictional, realistic, sarcastic, humorous, imaginative, mysterious, psychological, speculative, or even twisted as it can be. Stories are created by ideas that are formed from the very thoughts we experience in our lives. In order for stories to be told well, they have to evoke feelings, reactions, and attract audience that appreciates its ideas. Monogatari Second Series - the anime that not only attracted me to its franchise - but also presented it in an extravagant way that takes the art of storytelling to a whole read more

While the whole plot of Monogatari is not centered about it, both deal with time travel, paralel worlds and the consequnces of small changes which then affect the whole world.
Both series have Multiple Heroines, but Kami nomi is a little more open in the romance aspect. Comedy is a strong point in both series, and there are sci fi elements and lots of stories in kami nomi.The plot gets more and more rich and interesting as the seasons advance, in my opinion is a great option if you are looking for something similar to Monogatari.
