Good Bakemonogatari review. I watched 3 episodes and i can already tell what its gonna be like. the jokes aren't clever and the characters talk like they are smarter than they actually are. I don't feel any connection to these characters. I was never a fan of harem anyways but even the comedy can't grip me. I'd rather watch clever use of comedy like Tonegawa instead. The animation is crisp but thats about it for this series. its way too pretentious.
You gotta watch Ping pong the animation. imo yuasa's best anime over tatami galaxy

Nice Bakemonogatari review; I don't agree with it, but it's pretty well written.
Also, you have good taste in VNs. It's nice to see an Umineko fan. It's so underappreciated, especially around here.

Alright, I'm gonna go all-out keyboard warrior now. Of course, it's about your Bakemonogatari review. I am not hating on your opinion, I'm just stating some facts that you should understand.

First of all, you clearly haven't seen the full series yet. In case you're wondering, the release order goes like this:
1. Bakemonogatari
2. Nisemonogatari
3. Nekomonogatari: Kuro
4. Monogatari Series Second Season
5. Hanamonogatari
6. Tsukimonogatari
7. Owarimonogatari
8. Koyomimonogatari
9. Kizumonogatari Part 1, 2 & 3 (Advised to be watched before Bakemonogatari)
10. Owarimonogatari Second Season
11. Zoku-Owarimonogatari (TBA)
And the list will continue in the future. Now, if you've never seen a full series before, it's not exactly right to criticize one season of it right off the bat. It's almost like giving a first impressions of an anime. To be fair, it would be quite trash if it were a solo anime, but clearly it's not. Why is its scores so high on MAL? Why do people like it so much? Why is it considered a masterpiece? It's because it's a good anime series.

Blatantly stating that the characters are just 'cliche anime character tropes' isn't right here, and I'm sure this goes for many other anime out there. From Bakemonogatari alone, they might seem like shallow characters, but as the story progresses through the long dialogues, you'll see that they are not what they seem. As for the jokes stating that they are just a cliche harem anime, it's just some jokes. To be honest, they do get a bit tiring as well.

The art style is one thing I'm agreeing with you. It's odd, complex and weirdly nice. In the earlier seasons where they had a lower budget, they needed to cut some corners, hence the static frames and such. It gets better at the later seasons.

Again, I'm not hating, but you definitely should reconsider your intentions of this anime series. Thanks for reading this.

You keep going on and on about how Bakemonogatari is exactly what it criticises, yet you never go in depth about how it goes about being that, which would be hard, since it goes out of it's way to subvert exactly that.

I loved your review of Bakemonogatari. I really dislike that trope of "these tired cliches are fine as long as we point out they are there".

Your review for bakemonogatari is very poorly constructed. You keep on saying that the show is lazy and empty because they used witty dialogue?? It seems like you r constantly talking about what makes the show good but saying that is what makes it bad without really saying why. Also, you really can't say a show is bad because it relies on troupes. Every show will at least have a couple of cliches in it and honestly bakemonogatari is one of the least cliche shows I've seen. Senjougahara isn't your typical tsundere character, and araragi is far from your typical harem lead

Criticising the characters of Monogatari is the last place you should go for criticism of the series. Saying they fit into tropes is completely missing the point of the characters to subvert such shallow tropes. The term is overused, but deconstruction is a very good description of these characters. The point is that they appear to fit into very defined and shallow catagories, but the Kaii they suffer from put us into their psyche and let us see the behind masks they put on, past the cliches they appear to be. Hell, it's blatantly obvious that Senjougahara was making an active effort to get away from her "tsundere" personality because it was made to distance herself from others. Other characters aren't nearly as developed as her at this point, but they aren't shallow, and the recieve further developement into the series. Nadeko is the only exception, because we know so very little about her, since her Kaii doesn't stem from her, but the later becomes the poster child of the whole exterior masks deal. I respect the fact that you didn't particularly like Bakemonogatari, but I take issue with this criticism.

Bakemonogatari shouldn't exist. All copies of it should have been destroyed never to be seen.

while i disagree w your opinion on bakemonogatari (good review though!) you like umineko so you have amazing taste by default
beignetchoco Dec 22, 2017 2:37 AM

ataraxial Oct 22, 2017 4:31 PM
Why not just comment on my profile if it's off-topic?

Anyways, I haven't played the VNs LOL. What are the rape jokes?
harshtruth Sep 12, 2017 3:28 PM
Great Bakemonogatari review. These fanboys really can't see through the pretentious BS of that series...keep it up
leitorcinico Sep 2, 2017 2:58 PM
