I don't have the length of viewer experience that a lot of the community has with Monogatari. I did not spend the last 8 years of my life watching the series or knowing the entire story inside and out and what not. For me, I just randomly decided to watch it after being in the dark about it from so many of people I know who have watched it as well as innate curiosity. The past two months that I have dedicated to watching the entire series from start to finish is going into my top 5 greatest anime experiences in history. I thoroughly enjoyed this story so much. My sleep schedule may be fucked up as a result of the constant marathoning but every night spent on watching this awesome franchise was worth it. Nisio and SHAFT, I raise this cup to you guys. Thanks for the awesome experience.
I agree wholeheartedly with this. I just started watching this series at the beginning of this year, and I felt A LOT OF FEELS when this came out. I can't begin to imagine how people who kept up with this series for 8 years feel...

The riddles were amazing in this one and everything has been tied up together with happy endings for everyone (almost everyone I would say).
This really was so well done. I really enjoyed all three arcs! And it is definitely the best Monogatari installment since Monogatari SS.
I was going to give it a 9/10 because I felt like Mayoi Hell and Hitagi Rendezvous were much needed extensions of the Monogatari series but then came Ougi Dark. It practically blew everything out of the park like six runs were required in the last ball from a cricket match and it was met! 6/5
Nine years after I fell in love with Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari, my love never died for this series. It is but the end of one of many stories of Araragi Koyomi so I hope to see Zoku one day when it is released!

Just finished watching the Monogatari series with this one.
Looks like after watching, I've doubled my reading words per minute 'cause of how fast the monologues roll.
I just wish Hitagi, Kanbaru and the others were able to see Shinobu's complete form, you know, to see the real 'fruits' of the 500-yr-old youth. 10/10 would wait for Koyomi Reverse.

I applaud it for making sense. Every hint and foretelling and puzzle piece has come together in a very well woven mystery story.
Other than that, boooo. Quite frankly the last arc is disappointment. First, too much exposition, as usual. Second, getting philosophical at the showdown btw Araragi and Ougi. Urghhhh, that sequence is boring as hell. All right I know the theme is doing the right thing vs correcting mistakes, saving yourself vs saving others and risking yrself..... blah blah. It's so boring and doesn't feel quite right when both parties detail and split hair and engage in obnoxiously lengthy conversations.
The biggest problem, for me, is doubling Araragi. Like Shirou fighting "himself" in FSN. That plot twist always annoys me. So in the end, the "correcting mistakes" half of Araragi is personified into a girl. And somehow Araragi becomes the happiest harem lead ever, every damn girl is alive. Wow, he succeeds in life.
This coming of age sounds really phony to me. I love Araragi, but whenever he expresses his way of life, his emotional savior speeches, or gets philosophical, it's always long-winded and corny. As to his growth, the only time I buy it is when he fought Black Hanekawa in Bake, when he acknowledged that he should value his life and rely on the help of his friends, that case being Shinobu. From then on, each "growth" arc of his is really boring, mostly because he doesn't need growth, he's a f@cking decent great guy from the start. Ohhh I forgot, one more, when he acknowledged his inability to "save" Sengoku, and that Kaiki is better for her. That. But not this. What is this? Embracing "yourself"? Being a white angel to convert the black angel inside yourself to turn to rightness? and that dark half don't have the privilege of finding peace and going to heaven, but actually brought back to life to experience life for herself????? I don't get it, someone pls explain it to me!

Well, at first my theory on Ougi's identity was "Darkness," after it was stated that it's not, my guess shifted to Ougi being a subconscious creation of Araragi. I guess I was correct on this one. There's a lot to cover, and I don't really feel like writing a lot...So, I'll say that it was a really good season - and take my leave.

You guys might want to rewatch Hitagi Crab. Because I did that with the whole series prior to Owari S2 and the Bake throwbacks gave me chills. Here are some examples. Apparently it's from episode 6 but whatever.
Wow! That is amazing. Props to Shaft.
Very satisfying "ending". It amazingly pulls a happy ending for everything anyone might have liked this series for.
I seriously can't find a bad thing in this 7 episodes to score it lower than the maximum score. Maybe that Mayoi Hell and specially Hitagi Rendevous had little substance, serving only as a setup for Ougi Dark, but even then, can you really blame a late Monogatari series for its infinite inconsequential conversations? That is what you signed up for, better enjoy it, and I surely enjoyed the return of Mayoi-kamisama and the date with Hitagi.
So 10/10 all around. Now to Zoku.

It's impressive just how good that last episode was. I was going in to this episode thinking "Isn't this season a bit overrated?" and came out thinking "Oh, that makes sense." From the reintroduction of many memorable characters (OSHINO-DADDY IS FINALLY BACK) to great character moments that are some of the highlights of the entire series (see: Hitagi Rendezvous) , there is tons to love here and very little to hate. A case study of what makes Monogatari so fun to watch. 9/10.
Raw score: 9.2/10
Final score: 9/10

Wow. That was a fun joyride.
Considering that I started to watch this series years ago... probably like 5 or more years ago and not actually watching it continuously made me regret it. BUT! I'm going to rewatch everything again in both release AND Chronological order.
So back to the review, it's really good! There are lots of people who are bored on this anime because of how monologue focused the anime is but, all I can say is that, that's what made this anime what it is. This anime made a rather place inside my heart to always love and remember it as one of the anime the made me realize what I'm currently doing with my life now that I'm also starting to go to college.
I can say that this anime changed me big time.
Now, for the current episode, It was 10/10 for me. Fantastic, Incredible, Subarashii. To be honest, I can't even describe it as a word.
The reason for this is because of how "perfect" the execution is made with every arc of this season. Not just the season but also the scenes and everything that's happening on screen. Sounds, atmosphere, etc. Perfect. It even made me feel something for "Ougi Oshino" at the end where I was mostly confused and troubled by her existence in the series but, now it has been given light as to who she/he is.
Other than that, I can gladly accept this as the end of the series but... Let's be honest here... Do you want the series to end? Heh. I know, I don't.
I still want to see Hitagi, for who she is.
I still want to see Hanekawa for her incredible intuition.
I still want to see Hachikuji for her lovable personality.
I still want to see Kanbaru for being the one you can (secretly) rely to.
I still want to see Nadeko cause of her sadistic nature as the god.
I still want to see Tsukihi/Karen for their time when Araragi needs them.
I still want to see Ononoki for being the guardian who's always there.
I will always want to feel the love that Shinobu gives off at the whole series.
Welp, bit cringey at the end but, who can blame me?
Only way to tell feelings is to express it.
But for others to 'understand,' you need to 'feel.'
