Well it's finally over and it took long enough. Trolling aside I'll give it a solid 9/10 just because I enjoyed the earlier episodes.

Confirmed... troll list.



... Darn. Even though Yotsuba& being made into an anime is an EXTREMELY questionable fact...

I hope there are anime adaptions of the two other spinoffs/sequel of this.

That was a great ending and a great story filled with great characters.

:D

Great ending for a great series, full of mystery, romance and the usual flawlessly-timed direction. That's a very good thing Bakemonogatari ended, and ended like this. 9/10

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

My rating of 9 will not change. That's my first and final score throughout the show's ups and downs. It might be a rating single-handedly credited to episode 2 or 3 (I can't remember which). I think I've said it before, but the plain/simplistic backgrounds with no people at all blended with the nice mellow music is something I can't describe. It gives me a good feeling and I'm surprised this show emitted that so well and symmetrically. The lack of Senjougahara really hurt the entertainment value later on in the series, and I had hoped she'd have some more screen time, but I'm content with how much time she got in episode 2 or 3. Those were some of the best dialogue-based episodes I've ever seen in Anime.

And you forgot episode 12... Sorry for ranting on such small details.

But for me, every character has his/her fair share of contents... (my English is that bad, sorry). But it would be OK if this show is nothing but Senjougahara & Araragi, though.

Awesome Shinobu action aside, the ending turned out to be much more straightforward than I expected. The series lost a little bit of momentum with the delay, but still very enjoyable. Not something that's praised very often when it comes to anime, but thanks for the dialogue lol.

Great series. The waiting times for episodes 14 and 15 were ridiculous. Shinobu was awesome, I really thought she was going to kill evil Hanekawa. The ending seemed a little original, but nonetheless, I whole heartily enjoyed this series. It gets a solid 8/10.

They could even remove Araragi, and only have Senjougahara, it would still last for some 100+ episodes~
..Ahem. Anyway, don't mind me.

If Araragi is removed, Senjougahara will not have a guinea pig to toy with!

It all feels imcomplete, honestly, but besides that, it was a good place to end the series. At least, we have a clear understanding of everyone's feelings, and a resolution of all the main character's problems, not a weak harem ending. Quite enjoyable, overall.

Great ending, imo. Yes, the wait was annoying but I don't think it affected the quality of the show and the entertainment value it had. I'm going to re-watch this when a batch with good subs is released.

10/10

the ending was very nice.
I'd liked to see more HitagixKoyomi scenes but nevertheless I loved this show.
nice experimental animation style and a nice sense of humor.

my starting date for the show was July 8 2009 my ending date was July 9 2010 ;D

Wow, one day and a year... good job.

Frankly, I picked up this series quite late (when 14 episodes have been released already), so the delay is not a big deal to me... Only 2 months or so.

Same for me, I watched the 14 episodes in one weak and today I finished this one. The ending wasn't that great :/

This show was somehow enjoyable even though it has always the same formula. Guy saves a girl with some kind of supernatural power with the help of a weird blond guy.

So I finally became bored enough to watch this episode hoping that they might actually try, and put some effort into the very last episode.
Oh and behold how wrong I was though..
Same level of mediocrity, boring pointless conversations, cut-scenes and generaly incoherent setting.
How anyone can give this a perfect 10 is completely beyond me, I guess the total lack of quality make them think it's 'unique' and therefore equals good.

I'm not completely unreasonable though and the anime did have a few interesting scenes and highlights, plus the characters was actually surprisingly interesting (most of them at least)
Overall though I'm curious as to what Shaft tried to accomplish when they decided to produce this, especially later with the massive delays.
Either way I'm scoring this a 6, and that's only because I'm in a good mood ;}

Delicious trolling to the Bakefags. I am proud.

I agree, this man is a trolling genius, SHAFT makes fans wait a whole year to finish this series, neglects to animte the OP for the last episode, and then when released the ONLY one willing to sub the show (u'd think other groups would seeing how this is supposed to be popular) will sub it over a period of 6 days to make the fans and the bloggers talk their hearts out. Truly the bakemonogatari fags are one of the most trolled fanbases in recent anime only second to the Haruhi fanbase


Haha I guess I wasn't the only one laughing at the people getting upset at all the trolling.
Then again Trolling is the heart and soul of this anime. Thank you Shaft.

I think it sohuld have ended at episode 12. The last three episode were meh. So I'll give it a 8/10

Well yeah in term of his relationship with Senjougahara it seemed like a better ending but the cat business was left open. Also this episode also showed his strong connection with Senjougahara. At the end it wasn't that bad at all. Is still a good ending that gave closure to everything. Just not as romantically epic as 12 was.

BTW Shinobu can really kick ass huh. The cat didn't have a chance. Ok the cat wanted it a little but anyway.

It was a really nice ride. And had nice feelings watching this show. The time for the last three episodes was too much though.

Wow, that was actually a satisfying ending. Nonetheless, for all the people who followed this show all the way, the wait is definitely not worth the series of this lackluster quality. It had a nice arc to open and a good arc to end, but Mayoi Snail, Sugara Monkey, and Nadeko snake were awful to sit through with all the non-animated parts and only satisfactory animation when there were some. I'll be generous though, since I hear there were budget problems. But then if that was the case, then Shaft have planned this out better than just crappily animate some episodes. An 8/10, but it should have been only a 7.

Very nice ending. I'm satisfied with this one. 9/10

Okay did Shinobu just appeared from Araragi's shadow? Lol how did that happen? Also, the ghost cat told him to move to a place where there's no shadow. Does that mean she knew where Shinobu was from the start?

Senjougahara x Araragi in the end was just awesome. I hope they make babies soon. I'd love to see what's the product of a crab and a vampire.

Yea ep 12's ending had more sentimental value as an ending, but as for overall closure I think 15 was perfectly in sync. I mean animes like this with this kind of story usually have ending that are a complete let down, but they wrapped it up in a way that all the main characters got their moments, saw a glimpse of how powerful Shinobu is (imagine how bad she was in her real form), and Hanekawa's position was settled with Senojogahara coming out on top. Granted it wasnt a pure harem, but a very satisfying ending considering its tags as romance, ecchi, harem.

Now if only theyd release some OVA's about the prequel when he was a vampire of the ones about his sisters then id be overjoyed.

I really liked every episode, but its shame they didint showed us full flashback from times when araragi was a vampire (damn that looked epic) and explain shinobu's matter. Why is she attached to him ? Why cant she use powers when not nearby? Im just left with few questions . Thats why im giving this series 8 ( i would give 9)

Duh, Shinobu can kick Psycho-monkey-armed girl's butt if she is needed. Oshino even mentioned that Shinobu can cut that "skinny" arm before breakfast!

I thought it was opposite. Animation was flawless, abstract interpretations were fantastic as usual. It wasn't slideshow heavy as mayoi arc did. Definite, the most well animated episode of all, honestly.

Hm... I think I have to rewatch it then. Something just didn't feel right to me. Maybe it was because I hadn't watched anime in over month since I've been on vacation... :p

Masterpiece. The ending is probably good, but I'm clouded with the "I don't want it to end I want more no end no end no end" bias. Wanted more Hitagi in the end...
