This is a story. A story about choices and consequences, confessions resulting in love and rejection, and decisions leading to sacrifice and tragedy.

Koyomi Araragi's decision to save a blonde vampire and meddle with the supernatural resulted in his death as a human and rebirth as a monster. But this was only one of the countless tragedies and choices that Koyomi would be faced with, and he is confronted with the fact that his seemingly unshakeable and hard-earned relationships do not last. As strange oddities continue to manifest in the world around him, he is faced with impossible choices—to sever his ties with those he loves, or eternally remain a part of the world of monsters and apparitions and watch the world crumble as a result. To accept or reject a confession, and sacrifice his all for the sake of others. However, both of these paths could lead to tragedy and farewells.

This is a story. A story about Koyomi Araragi coming to realize the consequences of his choices.

Before I start though, to newcomers who have yet to read it, The Monogatari series has a really confusing timeline, and this season is when it starts to show. I wouldn't say that reading it in the published order is wrong, but I believe that reading Onimonogatari right after Kabukimonogatari and reading Otorimonogatari right before Koimonogatari would make for a less jarring experience, though it's not a must.

Anyways, right back to the review. The second season is where the ...

I don't question everyone's criticisms - I confess I was lazy reading them all. Only I do not agree with this argument at all. The series is beautiful, it's true. I was attracted by the promotional images, that's true too. However, to consider it a beautiful work only for that reason is degrading, for two reasons. The first one, even if it stays in the visual realm, is that Shaft, beyond the set and the characters, does a very big job on symbolism. To say "it's beautiful" is to completely miss these shots and a good portion of the anime.
The second reason concerns what makes ...

Second Season of Monogatari Series retains all the things that made the first one great. That is honestly all the info you need about if you’re considering you’re considering whether to continue the series or not. As much as it applies, I will not waste your time by repeating by review for the First Season, so feel free to read that if you’re not sure what even makes the series good in the first place. Following is more of a bits of thoughts specifically about the Second Season.

First of all, Second Season is the one with most variable narrators, and that is great. Suruga, Kaiki, ...
