Now that Koyomi Araragi and Hitagi Senjougahara have graduated, very few familiar faces remain at Naoetsu Private High School. One of these is Suruga Kanbaru, holder of the Monkey's Paw. When she begins to hear talk of a mysterious being known as the "Devil" who will magically solve any problem, Kanbaru immediately thinks these rumors are about her and decides to investigate.

She discovers the Devil is actually Rouka Numachi, a former basketball rival from junior high who is no longer able to play due to a leg injury. Rouka provides free advice to those who seek her out. Acting as a collector of misfortune, she enjoys relieving the stress of her clients by providing them with the false hope of having their problems solved. Although Kanbaru sees no real harm being done, she reprimands Rouka for lying and heads home, relieved she is not the cause of the rumors. But she may have a reason to worry after all: she finds that her left hand has reverted back to its human form.

I feel like I should preface this by explaining that Kanbaru has never been a character I care a whole lot about, so Hanamonogatari was never going to grip me like the rest of the Monogatari series has. Keep in mind that you'll probably enjoy these five episodes a lot more than I did if you've been waiting for Kanbaru to have a moment in the spotlight.

I did actually like seeing what I felt was a different side of Kanbaru, and I think transitioning her into a narrator for Hanamonogatari went fairly well. Not every character can carry a narrative, and even though I didn't ...

Mixed Feelings
The first thing to say about this season is that it’s best not to watch it unless one is at their 100% ‘cause I was kind of sleepy when I watched it and boy was it tough.

In terms of visuals and sound I didn’t find much differences from the previous season so I don’t bother much with it. The opening has Kanbaru and some other girl acting as friends even when they are enemies, though there’s a part where the vocals change completely and it is nice. The ending has a very creepy and completely different art style so it was cool to watch ...

i was expecting to see something exciting and im really disappointed now, i didnt enjoyed the other monogatari for their art style the characters and the sound, basically i just voted the plot, but now how am i supposed to see 5 episode without cutting my balls in half,this monogatari has a ORRIBLE plot, i couldnt stand watching "dialoguemonogatari" i would have preferred do my homework instead of looking at this, the only thing that made me continue it was the fact that i wanted to finish this series to start another one. U guys are probably wondering why i am not dropping it, well... ...
