Koyomi Araragi, a third year high school student who is almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire. One day, a classmate named Hitagi Senjougahara, who infamously never talks to anyone, falls down the stairs into Koyomi's arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs next to nothing, in defiance of physics. Despite being threatened by her, Koyomi offers his help, and introduces her to Meme Oshino, a middle-aged homeless man who helped him stop being a vampire.

"Save you ? Me ? I can't do that. You're the only one that can save yourself."

If you're here, you are definitely a fan of the Monogatari Series, or maybe just a random person just looking for a manga. In all cases, I recommend you this manga. \NO SPOILERS/

Story : 9.5

The story is really awesome, it's about the relationships between Araragi, the main character, and 6 other girls, who all have awesome personalities. I must also say that it's not your typical vampire story tho.

Art : 10

If i could add 11/10, I would definitely, it's just the BEST art I've EVER seen. The scenery read more

The Bakemonogatari manga, or rather, Bakemonogatari in general is controversial because of the artistic execution of the medium, whether in anime, or in this case manga, its humor, and funny touches of gag, but that is not the only thing, that is not what What makes Bakemonogatari excellent, is its history, message and characters.

Before going ahead with the manga, I want to clarify that it is impossible to criticize the manga as the anime because they are totally different media, but still maintains the aesthetic, artistic, retailer and with much symbolism that Bakemonogatari uses to express everything that you want in read more

Notwithstanding its popularity, Bakemonogatari has always been thorough; despite its supernatural tone, it is still a series in which most of the time consists of long talks between characters and the development of these latter, dealing with deep issues such as sinfulness or the need to overcome a murky past. This review is foremost a comparison with the anime, that is to say I am not going to rate the characters and the plot per se, but how good the adaptation is regarding the former material.

The manga goes for the most sheer rendering of Bakemonogatari. As it should be, the dialogue between characters read more

From my perspective that haven't seen bakemonogatari the anime this is not just fairly good, in my opoinion i got a whole lot of enjoyment and wonderful art in one book, and i have never seen anything like it!

When i was reading other really good mangas like death note and uzumaki i got this kinda vibe that only the really good books give you! Bakemonogatari is one of them and with a unique feeling of tension, beautie and horror in one set.

The anime includes therefore:

1. Beautiful art that is 10/10

2. Wonderful story = 9/10 where there isn't any obvious reason for this, just feel like read more
