No.Start with bakemonogatari then watch nisemonogatri and leave this for last

There really is no reason to watch Nise before Nekomono, maybe even Bake, if not for the little recap in the beginning of the episode.

Excluding Kizu that unfortunately isnt out yet,I believe the best way to watch them is in the order that the novel volumes were released.

I would actually suggest that riikaz first watched Bakemonogatari then read Kizumonogatari if you enjoy reading novels. After that you should continue watching Nise --> Neko.

this had a bit to much conversation in it, would have been nice if they kicked started the series a bit more

The -monogatari series is pretty much all about conversations...
I mean, both Bake- and Nisemonogatari pretty much consists of scenes filled with conversations.

You do know the series that you are watching right...heavy dialogue has always been a given...


and yes i know i have watched both bake and nisemono, i just thought it would have been nice for a bit more of a introduction, i like the heavy dialogue i just thought they jumped into fastly, but then again they don't have many episodes for this series.

If I knew that Kizu was fully translated before Nise came out I would have read it first but I forgot to check it out....After Neko ep1 I started reading the novel version.

Hahaha, oh god I missed this! xD No series will ever have as brilliant dialogues as the monogataris! <3

Koyomi & Tsukihi's love talk was really fun, specially after they ended up in the result that Koyomi's just sexually frustrated, lol.

But it was kinda wrong. Tsukihi was supposed to accept Koyomi's proposal to save H-san's boobs. Also she gave him the money for the magazines. As the Fire Sister she is.
He's asking the for love help because they're known for doing love counseling as Fire Sisters in school.

Wow, its finally here. I love this strange and sharp humour, even considering that i did have to pause a few times to read the screen, which is a little annoying. Araragi is the man, on of kind ;)

Watching this a second time made me really frustrate after the whole conversation with both sisters. I know it was nothing but stupidity and service means to an end in outputting more money. I have to the conclusion that it’s certainly a good thing considering how the creator and most people in the industry don’t really earn much at all. However when elements such as the following,

Happen one most wonder WTF is the sister’s point in the first place to encourage having her breasts grabbed and in order to relief her brother’s urges. It’s nothing surprising. In my studying of Japanese culture I came upon a written from a certain source witnessing that a mother was willing after even mentioning and admitting to her husband that since their son got good grades but had sexual frustrations that if it’s OK to relief him orally? The husband concluded yes but not to indulge in anything more. While disturbing as it may be to foreign cultures this is natural for them due to Japanese society being highly stressed and in order to maintaining educational performance this was done by a familial understanding. I myself have a hard time swallowing this up but it’s what I read. If it helps the son to achieve excellent grades and be the best then so beat it. This looks like it may be so.

This is a little what was shown in anime fashion way. Especially since Araragi admitted that he is incapable of getting porn. While I think he must be stupid not to figure out the wonders of the NET and computers. I am quite surprised even that his sexual functions are working cause a vampire should have all lust transferred towards blood thirst but even if the effects are halved it should not make a difference towards the libido. Point being is that Araragi has both sister’s acceptance to get his sexuality relieved due to his schooling/love life in chaos.

I don’t really care of whole service but the conversation was completely stupid not to mention moronic at most to output service. Let’s see:

-Tsuhiki feet + legs = body part sexual fetish

– Breast grab = to sexual lust.

– Angle focus on sexual parts such as privates, ass and breasts = to sexual lust output.

– Wet + panties + seeing privates in one’s brain = sexual lust output

– Drinking water + mouth/lips details with the alluding it could be something else = possible water sports fetish aka pee drinking. A fetish in some people’s minds.

– Breasts naked out = sexual lust output

I don’t think I missed anything and this concludes of why it’s service appeal in many ways with the brain’s imaginary forces.

Here is what I propose that required me to use my brain.

Rousokuzawa is interesting in being the lover of Tsuhiki but I want to see what he looks like and if he could have a role in the anime itself..

About the OP, one of the things interesting of the OP is the fact in the spoiler
a rather nice depiction of flowers and darkness. This goes hand in hand with lyrics in showing the flowers being the blooming love of Hanekawa for Araragi enshrouded in the violence and physical abuse from her fake father while the mother snuffs out at her pain/misery. Question remains why is Araragi like this?

The second thing in the spoiler
is a custom reversal of the pic. That yields out a rather interesting phrase which means books and a emotional connection to them. That’s rather interesting because usually people with bad environments around them tend to go into books a lot cause it warps their reality and make them forget the abuse be it sexual or physical. It’s quite a nice means but it only puts you in bubble and never solves anything really.

About what Araragi was reading, that big text you saw comes from:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamata_no_Orochi
make no mistake about it and Araragi looks too dumb to figure this whole concept. It's far too philosophically advance for him.

Just delays time till you can GTFO from the place you are stuck due to your age. Books tend to give out a fake perfect place in your brain to make its chemistry cope with the stress of the negativity from the reality. Rather interesting concept and means to an end in making one’s life easier despite the shit they are around. Still the question remains WTF does the phrase mean for other people's interpretations I wonder? To that effect I invite the community in thinking about it.

Finally this first episode still leaves me sour because the art is nice but the stupidity is really dumb at 70% let’s leave at that. So I will just say Karen and Tsukihi are nice too see in their own ways. I have that nice poster of Nisemonogatari with them. Seeing them again and staring at the poster reminds how rich they are other than their service of their bodies.

But hey anime industry people earn less than 35 000 a year at most so service is the way to go to make the extra dough. I understand though now more than before with this series strangely.

Other than that I wonder if Hanekawa’s mother is dead. I assume at most the stepfather hits her due to alcohol problems most likely but I knew it before even.

I am curious as to the OP’s glimpse of Hanekawa’s musical instrument.

I will leave it as that. Club has a bunch of shots I took of this episode. Showing clearly the art richness and facial richness of Tsuhiki.

Hanekawa's biological mother gave birth to her at 17. She had many lovers at the time so she doesn't know who Hanekawa's father is. She married another man who was known to be a workaholic. Her mother committed suicide after this. The workaholic father married another woman (who is Hanekawa's current mother) and soon died from overwork. The mother married another man who is Hanekawa's current father and the one who hit her.

It also explained why her father hit her in episode 4.

Did you even watch the show?

Eh..This is ep1 you know.Also after watching ep1 I started the LN but I am sure that the details of her biological mother such as the suicide and details of her first father werent in the anime(ep1 at least).Unless I missed something because I turned my head away from the screen for a second.Which is highly possible with *monogatari.

So you are saying that Hanekawa's mother was a slut in school to have many guys taking turns for sex with her and one day oops one knocks her up with a kid? That's low in life. I don't like them girls like that. No kidding suicide happened. Guy was working all the time and mother got depressed especially after giving birth and the guy is not there. So father remarried? OK I got that. I see, well if he insane about work well he surely must be drinking or is just plain stressed out so he hits her to relief them stress.

We are at episode 1 did you like see all the show and are telling something that is not episode 1? Cause this is episode 1 only. I think the details you talking about are not here yet but from the LN perhaps.

I certainly did not grasp it at all with them stupid flashes of words subbed that escape my view cause it flashes for one second. I HATE THAT SHIT! Annoying to pause just to see what are the subs for that so I skip it.

I live partially in japan as I am partially japanese. What you're talking about is some filtered information that people write and show in media because who wants to read how normal and boring japan is. Don't overanalyze it. It's not some other planet or something.

The japanese were quite stiff, and boring in public before the counterculture revolution in the 60s.
Japanese media is based on using exaggerated character traits, weird face expressions, seen in all those prank shows and everything quite colorful or over the top because that's what they didn't have in daily life. But that not just japan.
The mangaka started to create all these crazy things because manga was like their medium to express all that they wanted to show. Kinda like Hanekawa's stress problem, haha.
Not these days anymore though. Youth changed, all rebellious, everythings normal. It's not some other planet and it's not like they don't have any connections to other culture that influences them, not saying it's what japan does or needs to do.

Fanservice basically doesn't exist in this anime since it's only adapting Nisio comedy elements (Show me fanservice in a light novel).
It's comedy or ero. Fanservice, doesn't exist as an element at all actually. You can only call stuff fanservice that was basically a service for the fans and had no comedy, plot value or simply doesn't fit into the genre of the manga/novel/anime/movie/whatever.

And why are you calling Hanekawa's mother a slut? A woman is a slut when she has "fun" in her days but all these dudes humping around is okay?
If you didn't watch episode 4 yet then you should because they explain why the father hits Hanekawa. Nothing to do with drinking or anything like that.
The whole show is already out you know. Even the subs, check UTW-Mazui.

Those flashes are not meant to be read even though they sometimes provide information or show a thought of Araragi.

Well the fact is that it is. The stress level there is more than other parts of the world and dysfunctionality is bound to incur. I am saying this is just one cultural aspect of them. Regardless I still read it from a PRO view of society there. Might be from one spot but it's all I need to generalize that family dysfunctions occur. This series is rather good at showing it in Hanekawa's point of view and in general across the world.

I know that. Obviously to quit the boredom and perhaps prevent the high suicidal rate still lingering since the 50s this series also shows that well through visuals. The creator obvious wants multi social messages out there.

That I know, it's in fact a rather medium cause of the USA influence and control over them. In fact I know too much about it.

I am saying before any of that USA is pretty much on control of that. Else they would not stay around.

Fan service can be ero too. I know of the stupid love comedy and it's implication but I am saying it was plain stupid and tried to be comedic while IRL to me it would be more servicing out the girls. That’s how I see it.

Compared to you I do graphics and it takes me up to 4 times more time to see. However unlike most lazy asses I take my time to provide as much as I can of visuals captured.

Hanekawa's mother is a slut because she ought to stay with one guy she loves instead of opening her privates to many. Her privates must devoted to the one that made her kid and his also. Ideally it does not work all the time like that.

I know that but the information providing is what worries me in missing them out.

Quite the intellectual you seem to be, try not to derail too much the thread over this. It's not allowed and can land in trouble with the Forum Mods. Keep it in mind.

He also made a mistake about her current father.Her first father that married her biological mother died.The woman he married before dying remarried some other guy and that guy hit her.

But Hanekawa did say that these werent her first mother and father.

Also, I agree that calling her mother a slut because she had fun is stupid(for lack of a better word).

And how in the hell is HE derailing the thread?

Isn't that the case with all forms of media and not just in Japan.
i mean if you look at American or European comics you will also see a world that's different from reality you will also see facial expressions that you won't encounter in reality.
However what you do often see is the culture they came from even if it's over the top and in some cases even stereotype but as you say it won't be appealing other wise.

"Golden"

Hmm, so there was a whole lot more to the conversation that Koyomi and Tsubasa had (or will have) in Tsubasa Cat. He healed her wound using his blood. The lead up to it made me laugh though. It was far funnier than the condensed flashback in Bakemonogatari.

Still, I'm a bit surprised this came out before Kizumonogatari, given that Kizu was announced much earlier than Neko: Kuro was.

Holy shit grabbing Tsukihi's breast like a boss and not giving a damn about Karen taking her top clothes off. Surely Koyomi is badass.

Love the fanservice here. ;D

You can say it is first poart of the Monogatari series at least chronologicaly. Also events of Kizumonogatari that is supposed to be released any moment now takes action before the events in Nekomonogatari Kuro

I recomend watching this in order of releases though. Some characters get a better iintroduction this way.

So recomnded order / relses order

Bakemonogatari => Nisemonogatari = > Nekomonogatari Kuro => ?? Kizumonogatari ?? => Monogatari 2nd season

Chronology

Kizumonogatari => Nekomonogatari Kuro => Bakemonogatari => Nisemonogatari => monogatari 2nd season

Bakemonogatari is still the best part of it, but all 3 are amazing.

Kizumonogatari => Nekomonogatari Kuro => Bakemonogatari => Nisemonogatari => monogatari 2nd season

Bakemonogatari is still the best part of it, but all 3 are amazing.


You forgot the back half of Nekomonogatari, Shiro!

It's kind of crazy the order they are animating this franchise but hey, it works. Even within the same episode they blast around in chaotic fashion so just hold onto your hat and enjoy the ride, it will all get explained some day...

I think it worked better to watch the Tsubasa Cat arc of Bakemonogatari before you watch Nekomonogatari Kuro even though they are in reverse chronological order. I got the boxed set of Bakemonogatari recently so I could watch Tsubasa Cat right before I watched Neko.

Wonderful episode.

This really reminded me of Bakemonogatari.

Nisemono was pretty entertaining in it's own right, but it felt different.

Agreed. A very good start. I don't usually like the idea of having prequels but so far this might change my mind.

Back headaches weblog Monogatari, try to follow so many dialogues and articulated at the same time keep their eyes fixed Sulo screen to watch the action too, becomes challenging. Start very sweet thanks to the narrative that clears the past, with a nice summary of what has happened before Neko, I was afraid of having to review all the backlog! ^ ^ "
The plot made ​​for most of the dialogue, I like it! But there are the inevitable and pleasant interludes of Araragi, however I hope that always returns the action that has made Bake, in my opinion, the best arc of the saga! : D

Great, as expected of the Monogatari series. Had me cracking up all the way through. Nice to get some Hanekawa backstory too, as it is alluded to so much in Bake and Nisemonogatari. I swear that Koyomi gets more and more perverted with every episode ;) And that Karen fanservice... that was some of the most blatantly explicit this series has done, although it was played off like a normal family thing with Koyomi having no reaction. Unlike that toothbrushing scene.

It's because this anime is dialogue-heavy that it need those quirky visuals, or do you want scenes with only character's face and their moving lip instead ? I believe Shinbo's style is much needed for this show.


Exactly. Monogatari has great story, dialogue, characters, etc, but it's the visuals that keep one from getting bored with a show that consists of almost nothing but conversation. I love this style and would never wish the Monogatari series to be without it.

Holy shit grabbing Tsukihi's breast like a boss and not giving a damn about Karen taking her top clothes off. Surely Koyomi is badass.

Love the fanservice here. ;D

Can't believe there are seriously people complaining about how the story is told. People will literally find whatever they can to bash on a series, no matter how small it is, rather than to look for things they enjoyed. Like other people mentioned, the random visuals helps the flow of the story smoother and is what makes it unique from other similar series. Again, like others have said, if it weren't for that, the Monogatari series would be no where near as enjoyable, but rather, just another "boring" typical generic anime. I believe that SHAFT did incredible just with that criticizing them for how they portrayed this series is just silly, I know for a fact that I would not enjoy this series anywhere near as much if it weren't for the way it is right now.

Back to the episode, glad that you can still feel the same level of enjoyment as Bake and Nise, can't wait to see the rest.
