Hello, I've recently decided to pick up the Monogatari series and unsure in which order to watch it in. I've had a look around and there seems to be 2 orders that it is possible to watch this series in, them being either the Original airing order or the chronological order. So I ask which order do you recommend?

Thanks in advance. :)

(Apologies if this had been brought up before)

Chronological Order doesn't make much sense since its told out of order in the novels anyways.

Order is:

Bake -> Nise -> Neko:Kuro -> Second Season -> Hana -> Tsuki

I'd recommend not watching it at all, but if you insist, release order is definitely the way to go.

I'm pretty sure there's only ever been 3 anime they are better in chronological order, the release order is almost always the best way to go

Yer' a bit behind, there's five (you probably missed Neko and Tsuki).

Watched it in airing order because you wouldn't understand a lot if you watched it in chronological order.

Is that release order or chrono?

Yes.

I saw it in airing order, but I think it would be better to watch it in random order, just for the sake of novelty.

you should watch it in the order the creators want you to watch it in (original release) like i did so the suspense and thrills and mysteriousness is that much rewarding.

I'm watching it right now in the release order. I also see in bakemono there is the nekomono flashback, well i'd bet it's a flashback of nekomono.

Neither. Since nobody's said it, I think novel order is the way it should be watched, the way the story was truly intended. And when Kizu is out that will be possible.

If i'm gonna stick to the release time order, should i put Koyomimonogatari after Owari and before Kizu ? Because according to the Monogatari Wiki it's released between them

Or shouldn't i ? Because i feel it's only some sort of recap

(I'm asking this here, because this is related with the watching order of course)

Koyomimonogatari is just a bunch of short stories, however I would watch it after Owarimonogatari. Altough Koyomimonogatari was written before Owarimonogatari, the last episode of Koyomimonogatari is basically going to be the start of Owarimonogatari's next season (hard to explain without spoilers).

I have finished bake so should i start nise or wait for the kizu movies?
Because the release order is the same as the light novel order with the exeption of kizu.
The 3 movies are still being made but the light novel was released between bake and nise.

I watch it in chronological order, I thought that would be the best way to see it.

Go on to Nise and continue the airing order. There's no point in waiting forever for the rest of Kizu to come out and the airing order is the best way to watch anyway.

Watch Nise first. There are a couple of characters in Kizu that you haven't met yet, so it'd be better to watch it in the order above.

release order works better since the quality of the animation and aesthetics improve with each new season

Chronological would be pretty messy because Kyomimonogatari takes place in between bits and pieces of the whole series.

Here's what I'm using to watch the series. I got this from r/araragi. The only difference is that I'm planning to read Kizumonogatari as soon as I finish Bakemonogatari since the 3rd film doesn't come out for another few weeks and then we'll have to wait for fansubs.

Here's another neat link to see the anime and book release orders and also the chronological order.

So I've seen the posts but having seen the first Kizumonogatari movie, it makes sense that those 3 come before Bakamonogatari, which I've only seen one episode of. Honestly the whole thing seems confusing and even though I'm interested, this order nonsense makes me less interested in it.

I don't think watching in chronological order is even possible yet.

Even if it is, release order is the widely-recommended and intended route. If you watch through everything and decide you'd like to see it chronologically afterwards then save it for then.

Go with the release order. Also if you need help about the order send me a PM.

As the others have been saying, release order which is: Bake > Nise > Neko: Kuro > Mono: SS > Hana > Tsuki > Owari > Koyomi > Kizu > Owari 2nd (when it comes out)

I think they should make a sticky for this in the series section.

Just continue in the airing order from there. I don't know where you got the idea to watch in chronological order when everyone is against it.
