I've watched Bakemonogatari a few years ago, but years back my MAL had not yet existed. So I'm here now to add my post to a discussion of what a great anime this is, and that this season is only the start of an entire great franchise (my favorite is Monogatari Series Season 2) ^w^

Favorite char from the series: Shinobu Oshino ~

I started this back when it aired but stopped when I found out the last three episodes were going to be released later. I figured I'd watch it all when the last episodes came out.

Fast forward six or seven years later and I can finally set it to complete!

I largely feel the same way I did all that time ago. I really enjoyed the characters and their interactions with Arararagi. Some of it I suppose was repetitive, but I'm the kind of person who can listen to the same song over and over. So witty laughs, teasing of Araragi, and the haunting otherworldly elements of the show kept me entertained the whole way through. It was dialogue heavy, but good enough to stand on that alone if it had to. It helped the moments of action, which were handled excellently and always accentuated with great music, stand out that much more.

Sometimes I liked the quirkiness of the direction, at other times it felt like someone with an extreme case of ADD was in charge of directing and animating the show. Someone should tell Shaft sometimes less is more.

8/10

Good enough that I'll try to check out the other shows in less than six or seven years.

What exactly does this quote mean?

That he should be happy to be embraced by her as he dies.

This anime Have it's up and down... But I found my favorite characters which is Mayoi and Sengoku... Well Hachikugi gotta be over the top for me. next to her is Shinobu.

Well...Shaft....really brings out a character in a totally different view. makes talking seems not that boring.
Front Hooks...Oh yeah...

Interesting show overall. The first few episodes were confusing, but I understood it better as I watched more. Senjougahara's dialogues were confusing too, but that's what made her interesting. I know the creator was trying to be different, but I found some of the arc boring due to the slow pacing and randomness. The last arc was really good and interesting though. And the ending was not too bad. I give this anime a 6/10 overall. Maybe if there was also horror to it I would have enjoyed it a lot more and would have given it a higher score. Unique anime with great art nonetheless.

The characters are so fucking boring and even kind of shallow; there's no story whatsoever (WAITED 15 EPISODES FOR AT LEAST SOMETHING TO HAPPEN), just stupid jokes and references that get boring after 22 minutes of listening to two characters chatting and 30 seconds of interesting things happening (visually, at least). That's essentially what this series is: "Chatting: the anime". What the fuck Shaft

Nothing about its world is explained. It's basically our world, except there's talk about spirits and shit just to make you forget about the fact that it's a harem. Instead we get a few panty shots of an 11 year old, an 18 year old fantasizing about a middle schooler (but it's not pedophilia because it is I R O N I C) AAAAAAND an underage lesbian who wants to give her body to MC who is legally an adult just for the lulz? Wow. 10/10

Hey! I was told to watch this series and I enjoyed the anime so much! Bakamonogatari was such an unusual anime; first of its kind I watched that made me think. But I have a question the first episode was quite s mixture of events. Where the hell did aragari get bit by the vampire??! Is there a series she's in?!? Is it the one after Bake??? I'm so obsessed with this! Can someone point me in the right direction please? ): I would like to see if there were prior events like what slide they showed in episode 15 of aragari fighting a vampire. Where was that!??? That's something I would like to see! Please and thank you :)

Disappointed. Decided to stick with it instead of dropping it to see if it got better but it didn't. Shaft was my favourite studio because of Madoka Magica but they no longer are.

I found this show to have nice animation and I really enjoyed the op and ed songs. However, it was incredibly inconsistent and frustratingly boring. 5/10 Probably won't be watching the rest of the series.

Ara-aragi kun really is a dense mothertrucker, isn't he? Pretty much satisfying the trope for a harem MC. Unlike the other character tropes in the show, however, his behaviour isn't justified at all - it's just a fact that he's stubborn as well as stupid. Well, in the end it was Hanekawa who solved her own problem, albeit temporarily again - whether she will be able to reconcile with her feelings for Raragi will be a seen in the sequels, I presume.

It felt like a 9/10 up till episode 11, which was the peak. 12-15 felt cringeworthy at best, so my score drops to 8/10. Up to episode 11 it was definitely an enjoyable experience, especially because the unique art style and the monsterization of personal issues reminded me a lot of Mononoke, which I absolutely loved.

Hanekawa is just so boring. She ruined the story for me. I hate her.

I love how Oshino didn't really tell him he was leaving but instead just yelled at him from the roof and waved goodbye, but then no one realized that it was his way of saying goodbye until he actually left.

So many questions left to be answered about him, what happened during Golden Week, and especially what exactly is Araragi's relationship with Shinobu. But I'll be reading Kizumonogatari next, so I'll have the latter of those questions answered. Really looking forward to it 😊

I'm so glad I decided to pick this back up after 3 years. The series has already cracked my top 15 and could possibly slip into my top 10 by the end (I want to say it's likely, but I don't want expectations to run too high 😋).

Now onto Kizumonogatari :D

Araragi should have died, he chose the worst girl in the anime. Senjougahara is shit as hell, I use to like tsundere girls but she really pisses me off.

Boy oh boy does Araragi have some complicated relationships.

Loved this finale to Tsubasa Cat. I might not be right on the mark, but what I got from it is the “pressure of being put on a pedestal”. Hanekawa and Araragi could never, ever be together simply because they idealize each other too much; Hanekawa “saved” Araragi and he was her knight in shining armour to distract her from the rejection complex she seems to have.

You can’t be with someone if you can’t be yourself around them, but I think that’s why Gahara and Araragi work and will endure.
There’s no angst or lust you find in so many other romance stories and it’s not this idealized over-romanticized relationship. It’s just there in the background. It feels natural and nothing’s really changed or got awkward just because they’re dating. Probably because they ‘get’ each other and accept each other for their flaws. They’re not a “chemistry” couple, but I think that’s the whole point.

Like, Senjou’s not my favorite girl but hats off to her bc no one has been as honest as she has with Araragi and with herself despite apparently being a Tsundere. Nadeko, Kanbaru and especially Hanekawa don’t really seem to have gotten to the route of their problems. And like this arc showed, just removing the source doesn’t fix the feelings that created it.

Overall, I have no idea how to feel about this series so far other than the fact that I’m intrigued.
I don’t even really know if it’s good lmao
But I think I’m gonna stick around a bit longer to find out.

Very fun to watch, but I was expecting it to be much deeper. I hope it gets better. 7/10 for Bake.

OH GOD. I can't believe I finally finished this show after being in my On Hold for months, and little did I know I've been missing out on a great show. I feel empty. Wtf.

I'll sincerely this masterpiece of a show so fucking much. Holy shit. Shoutout to all the seiyuu in this show (except Sengoku's huehue) especially my baby Hiroshi Kamiya. Hihi. :)

Alright, let's talk about the last episode. I loved how they started and ended this show with Hanekawa and Ararararagi. And holy shit when shiro neko licked his neck then it started bleeding like shit what the fuck oh my god. Hahaha.

Hanekawa lying down on Araragi's body. Hory shet that was hot.

So, Shinobu's just hiding in Araragi's shadow after all this time? Wyd, Shinobu? Hehe. Heck, she saved Araragi again. Domo, Shinobu-chan. You're amazing.

UGH. Hitagi and Araragi holding hands while walking. Kyaaaa. My feeeeels! We need a kiss c'mon! Hehe. A-a-and them two on a bike. FUUUUUUCK! Thanks for the feels. Kyaaaa! THEY LOOK SO GOOD TOGETHER. FUCK I'M SO FUCKING IN LOVE WITH THESE TWO. GAAAH.

WHAT A GREAT FUCKING SHOW, FOLKS! THANKS, SHAFT! GAAAH.

10 OVER FUCKING 10.

I don't know how can people enjoy this show it's really strange I can't enjoy it I find it pretty average and mediocre I had really high expectations for this show yet it wasn't good enough
one of the things that I mostly hate was the atmosphere it was always empty no one around
And the animation as well, this my opinion those who loved this must be pervs for sure ( Φ ω Φ ) nya xD

Finished my rewatch. Still think that episode 12 should have been the last episode and the last 3 episodes still dragged like a bitch BUT I liked the series more in general now that I knew what to expect. I'll up my score from a 5 to a 7 and I'll watch the rest of the series.
