Apparitions, oddities, and gods continue to manifest around Koyomi Araragi and his close-knit group of friends: Tsubasa Hanekawa, the group's modest genius; Shinobu Oshino, the resident doughnut-loving vampire; athletic deviant Suruga Kanbaru; bite-happy spirit Mayoi Hachikuji; Koyomi's cutesy stalker Nadeko Sengoku; and Hitagi Senjougahara, Koyomi's aloof classmate.

Monogatari Series: Second Season revolves around these individuals and their struggle to overcome the darkness that is rapidly approaching. A new semester has begun and with graduation looming over Koyomi, he must quickly decide the paths he will walk, as well as the relationships and friends that he'll save. But as strange events begin to unfold, Koyomi is nowhere to be found, and a vicious tiger apparition has appeared in his absence. Hanekawa has become its target, and she must fend for herself—or bow to the creature's perspective on the feebleness of humanity.

Monogatari Series: Second Season adapts all but the third volume of NisiOisiN's light novel series of the same title. The third volume's adaptation, Hanamonogatari, was aired separately in August 2014. The complete Blu-ray release includes each arc under its novel title and places Hanamonogatari between episodes 11 and 12 of Monogatari Series: Second Season to reflect the original novel order.

This season (full of various Monogatari adaptations) has definitely turned out to be my favorite thus far; it wasn't overwhelmed with action or depravity like previous seasons have been, and yet, I feel more connected to these characters than ever. Which is pretty wild considering two of the narrators this season were characters that have only showed up a select few times thus far.

Why do I feel more connected to this season? Well, even though there's usually commentary about these characters' ways of viewing the world or how they're handling the stressors in their lives, this season felt like it touched on a lot of ...

Mixed Feelings
The first thing to mention about this season is the naming of it, which is the same as its source material but it’s actually the fourth in the anime. I will include Nekomonogatari: Kuro as part of it as it’s clearly part of it even if was released separately.

The second thing to mention about this season is how the plot structure is a rehash of Bakemonogatari, as it also consists of five arcs, and all of them are based around the same girls from that season.

Visually, Nekomonogatari: Kuro is a step back from Nisemonogatari for some reason, despite coming out later and being far ...

Preliminary (15/26 eps)
From fine to horrible, the Monogatari series was a rollercoaster of emotions. After seeing the popularity of the famous song "Renai Circulation" I decided to this anime a shot, but at what cost? Well, I ended up wasting hours of my time that I cannot get back since this series just kept on getting worse for me.

Here are some general issues I had with the WHOLE series:
-THE EYES: idk why but the animators made the eyes way too creepy for my liking
-The creepy poses they make
-THE WORLD FEELS EMPTY: this series has little to no background characters making the series feel like only the ...

Blast From The Past: New Megazone 23 Anime To Be Crowdfunded Soon

Mecha anime shows are awesome but it's a shame that so few are released nowadays. Fortunately, AIC is bringing back one of their classics for older and newer fans. Is a reboot of Megazone 23 exciting enough to secure a successful crowdfunding campaign?
