This didn't really bring any new information...


Maybe it is. That means they actually didn't start producing it for the 2nd season when they started it. Which means Hana might get some decent production value.

There was news a while ago about how SHAFT intended to animate all of Monogatari. So it won't end until all the novels end and have been animated.

I don't get how this is so popular. Anyway, how much is left to finish the whole story?

Babby's first dialogue driven "deep" harem series basically. I can honestly see why otaku would think it's like the greatest thing ever, it's really accessible at a lowest common denominator level and yet on the surface appears to have really witty, insightful and clever dialogue but it becomes quickly apparent that the writer of this story just likes to have characters drone on and on and on about memetic nonsense and fanservice scene after fanservice scene then maybe you get one episode an arc that is relevant to anything in the long term. I find that everything is largely carried by the chemistry of the voice actors who honestly do their best with the kind of dialogue they're given. It also sexualizes the hell out of it's characters like just about no TV franchise I've ever seen and pushes the limit which of course gets people slobbering and clamoring about the "genius" of specific fan service scenes.

When you combine all of the above into a show with pretentious dialogue where very little seems to happen (the pinnacle of anime storytelling for many these days) you basically get your typical pandering Aniplex type series that appears to have everything the modern anime fan wants. Seriously people eat this kind of shit up, it's been proven time and time again so yeah like the person above me says I totally get why this is popular with certain types. It's essentially become a rallying point for hardliner fanboy types and people that need to band together in order to feel like they have better taste than everyone else similar to how Haruhi was in 2006.

Personally I find the franchise insufferably pretentious and honestly not really all that interesting in terms of the exchanges the characters have and that's just to start with what I find wrong with it. A lot of it is just really bizarre fetish stuff and honestly pretty elementary grade story telling even when it's at it's best which isn't very often.

The anime is FAR from pretentious or "9deep6me."
The dialogue is pretty much always focused on the events of the arc and the relationship between characters. The only reason people think it's pretentious is because one conversation between characters can end up lasting almost a full episode and people automatically think
"hurdur this anime is pretentious cuz long dialogue, 10deep5me" when it's miles away from pretentious.

Just watched the PV. I thought it was funny. I hope the fire sisters aren't present in the arc though.

I miss Kanbaru, it's been a while. I think she is sorta of an underrated character in the franchise.
I agree, I think she showed up ONCE in the Second Season and then that was it. I'm excited to hear her narration in Hana.

The fire sisters are in charge of every preview since they got nothing else to do anymore.

Come on now, everyone should know that not replying to him is the best solution. His drivel will never end. He seeks attention, don't give it to him.

Oh I see. I didn't check previous PVs, so I didn't know. I guess that's good for me since I don't particularly like them, especially Karen.

But Kanbaru and Karen should be BFFs by now, if you remember Nisemonogatari.

Is Hanamonogatari purely about Kanbaru and what goes in her mind? not even Araragi is there?


Pretty much the same as Neko Shiro, Otori or Koi but the timeline plays a certain factor of wherever a character appears or not.

I like Karen, but simply because she's fun to watch and listen to. I think the toothbrush scene was funny considering Koyomi's inner thoughts and behavior that's all.

Fortunately for people who dislike this series, there should only be two movies 'Kizumonogatari' and this, 'Hanamonogatari' as well as one last season, so that's not much content you'd need to avoid until the series is completely finished.

I don't see how the existence of this (upcoming) series has to concern people who don't like it in the first place.

After reading your following post it's clear that you're projecting the fanbase of Monogatari that you've exchanged with onto the show. That's a really childish way of trying to deal with other opinions, man.

Sorry if sexualization is too much to handle!!!

I hear you. She's my favorite character in this franchise and also a character in my top 10 all time favs.
Add me to that little list of people who don't really care about Senjougahara.


Eternally waiting for Kizu. My skeleton will be waiting in my stead after I pass on because that's how long it's going to take to come out.

With this, Kizumonogatari, and an inevitable adaptation of the "third season", I have a feeling that the timeline is going to become a massive clusterfuck. I wouldn't even know where to begin if I was trying to get into this series.

I don't want them to stop, Monogatari Series is one of the only airing series worth watching.

Give me more, as long as you material, Shaft. ^^

Why should Aniplex(or whoever decides to get more monogatari animated) stop animating it if it makes this money money?
