Bunny Girl is basically a less verbose version of Bakemonogatari, complete with the anthology setup of the main guy, who comes off as a sarcastic prick but is secretly super nice, helps the waifu of the week come to terms with her social anxieties and hangups that supernaturally manifest in very literal ways. The snappy dialogue and instant chemistry between the leads makes both shows a very fun watch, but Bunny Girl is much more accessible.

Main guy is just your normal guy trying to help a bunch of girls with their issues. Their issues have realistic causes, but supernatural symptoms. There is also an obvious romance in both. Bunny Girl doesn't have all the word-play and quirky Shaft animation.

- Girls afflicted by supernatural/spiritual phenomena - Main guy helps the girls - Predominantly female characters - Main guys both a little bit pervy/cheeky - Main girls in each are very tsundere Overall similar shows but both unique and if you watch one it doesnt feel like you're watching a rip off if you watch the other

If you enjoyed Bunny Girl Senpai, then you will enjoy it's original inspiration. Bakemonogatari is more dialogue driven in the best way possible (being much more complex and witty as well as thought provoking). In addition, the art style is one of a kind - I've yet to watch an anime as visually interesting in the particular way that Bakemonogatari (as well as the entire Monogatari series adapted from the many light novels) perfectly executes. Not only is this the most involved anime I've had the pleasure of watching, but it entraps my full and constant attention with thoroughly fleshed-out characters, clever humor, and entertaining plots.   read more

Despite it's title, it's a more innocent, more drama and less action playoff of the Bakemonogatari idea, and the Clannad idea (not After Story). Before talking about the similarities, these are both absolutely touching shows and deserve your attention even if you've seen the other. They both have a fresh take on things. A seemingly typical guy, who keeps his distance from others, notices a girl keeping her distance from others. Why are they keeping their distance? Because they each have a secret. Our main man, Sakuta has been dealing with his issues for years, and finds a girl who is in desperate need of   read more

"Aobuta" shares many similarities with the Monogatari Series. The story is about a high school boy meeting different girls with supernatural phenomenon and helping them solve their problems. The main character seems unsocial and his classmates always misunderstand him. But actually he is a straightforward boy, and willing to help people around him. The heroine is a pretty and cool girl with long black hair. She has a bit of sadism and sharp tougue, and often plays tricks on the main character.

First of all, not only Bakemonogatari, but all the monogatari serie. It is very similar to the point that there's something weird going on with a female character for a ahort period of time and that the main character try to understand the situation and then save the girl. Monogatari have more dialogue and less actions than Bunny Girl and less character, indeed there's no background character in monogatari, it looks like they live in an emlty town. But if you liked bunny girl, you'll probably enjoy the monogatari serie!

They both feature a lowkey pervy boy that runs into girls with supernatural issues that he helps them solve. They're both harems in a way, but the MC kind of chooses one girl from the beginning and proceeds to flirt around afterward in both shows. Let's just say that the MC in Rascal Does Not Dream is more loyal than the one in Bakemonogatari. They're both full of snippy comedy and great dialogue as well.

For once there is actually a show that is similar to Monogatari. Both shows involve the MC dealing with supernatural problems involving a wide range of girls. In both shows, while there's a main love interest that spans the series, there are small elements of harems for the MC's. Both shows also have unique interactions between the characters and contain ample amounts of witty humor

The Monogatari series is deeper than bunny girl senpai. Bunny girl senpai is like a light-hearted version of the Monogatari series but offers characters that are easier to relate and connect to. I recommend the Monogatari series for good character studies and its visuals.

If you didn't like Bakemonogatari for it being verbose, flashy, or unconventional but still enjoyed some of the themes used than Bunny Girl Senpai might be for you.

Both try to explore problems that people face via more literal supernatural elements (spirits in Monogatari and adolecense syndrome in Seishun Buta Yarou). Where Bake more focuses on interal conflicts and problems relating to themselves, Seishun Buta Yarou focuses on an individual's interactions and place within a societal context (and then by proxy, how it affects them). Both however, are still good in both rights. There are also other small similarites that a fan of one can recognise in the other but they both still feel like fresh and interesting series in their own ways.

Both shows have a note of the supernatural things, that happening around main characters: the hero of this story is still a high school student, who meets a girl with supernatural phenomenon and helping her to solve a problem. Also, main heroine has a personality of "tsundere": sometimes, she can be angry to protagonist and even rude him, but on the other hand, she loves him and feel safety with MC. Besides it, in both animes slip philosophical and scientific thoughts.

Bunny Girl Senpai is just the Monogatari series in a traditional anime format. Same premise of sarcastic-longer-but-secretly-incredibly-kind male protagonist saving each episode's waifu in distress, whose adolescent woes have manifested into supernatural phenomena. I watched Bunny Girl Senpai as it aired and only recently discovered the Monogatari series, so I was surprised by how similar the themes of the shows were despite their massively different presentation styles. Both series are great in their own right, and if you enjoyed Monogatari but wanted a more normal anime experience, then you'll love Bunny Girl Senpai

The story lines are very similar and equally interesting! The main character seems to be a pushover when in reality he has a righteous attitude towards helping others in need. They both walk the line between supernatural and reality; the character's emotions manipulate the world at large through themes of physics and spirituality. The themes are also very philosophical and every episode of Bunny Girl leaves me wondering about how I perceive my world, just like the Bakemonogatari series did. Mild fanservice too! I absolutely recommend both anime.

Both shows have one main male protagonist with many female characters surrounding him, but what makes both of these shows great is how they both are not harems. The females in both shows actually have characteristics and are not boring. Also not all of them are falling over romantic for the male protagonist.

Bakemonogatari has everything you love about Bunny Girl Senpai. Love the interactions between Sakuta and Mai? Senjougahara and Araragi have the same teasing relationship (though a bit more intense) Love the episodic occurrences? They have it too! Love the vibe? Bakemonogatari has tons of it. Plus, this is an absolute staple of the community. The visuals will blow you away, the soundtrack is awesome, and the characters are refreshing +interesting. Bakemonogatari is the type of series that makes me want to dive head first into every character and understand them too. This show is essential.

If you loved Bunny girl senpai, then you'll be interested in Bakemonogatari, vice-versa. I would say that Bakemonogatari is a more wild version of Bunny girl senpai where the art style, the story-telling, and the vibe it radiates are worlds apart, in a good way. Plot-wise, both anime are about a group of individuals facing supernatural phenomenons that have a deep meaning and are eventually saved by the MC, and as you would expect for the romance part, the MC falls for the individual he saves.

Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai ("Bunny Girl Senpai" for short) is an anime in which a high school boy named Sakuta Azusagawa solves the problems within his town relating to a phenomenon knows as "Puberty Syndrome". Bakemonogatari has a similar premise in which a high school boy named Koyomi Araragi solves the problems in his area relating to the supernatural (including demons, Kamis, and curses). Each incident spans a few episodes (similar to Bunny Girl Senpai), but each incident has its own opening, adding more character and setting the mood for what is to come.

Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai is basically Bakemonogatari but worse. I find the characters, their interactions, the humour, the visuals, the drama, the plot (from what I remember from the manga), the art, sound and basically anything else to be better in Monogatari. If you enjoyed this, Bakemonogatari should blow your mind. On the other hand, Bunny Girl does have a more down to earth feel and is better for people who don't get Bake's humour.

Less mindfuck and abstract dialogue compared to Bakemonogatari. Main cast are witty and their interactions make the show really enjoyable to watch. Both series have a supernatural element, but bakemonogatari leans into it more and explains more of its lore that relates to myths, gods and spirits while in bunny girl senpai its a syndrome, a supernatural disease of sorts. Both OPs and EDs as well OST are amazing in both shows. Bakemonogatari is more unique but often takes time to adjust to its unique way of storytelling. Bunny girl senpai however, does its normally and easy to follow.

Both anime focus on a main character trying to help girls with supernatural problems. Nonetheless I like both of them, Bakemonotari is a more artistic anime and their characters are deeper than Bunny girl senpai´s because of the number of episodes dedicated to each girl in Monogatari.

Personally, I hate Bunny Girl Senpai but that's besides the point. The parallel I'm drawing here is that both of these anime rely on short arcs wherein a new character is introduced, fleshed-out, and ultimately tied into the main "plot" of the show. If you dislike fan service, I don't recommend the monogatari series. Personally, I don't like fan service, however, for some reason, it works perfectly in this series (besides the movies), creating a comical atmosphere founded upon dialogue. Give it a shot!

Bakemonogatari and Bunny Girl Senpai are two almost identical shows, but Bunny Girl Senpai is easier to understand and appreciate. The Monogatari Series is longer and with much more content, and you just have to stray for a moment to no longer understand what is happening on the screen.

Both anime are pretty similar in format. Main character is an apathetic guy (seemingly) who helps people going through weird phenomena by getting them to be truthful to themselves. Bonus: the main characters also have younger sisters/sister. [Mild Spoilers] The BIGGEST differences are really just Bakemonogatari is about folk lore and ghost stories, and Bunny Senpai is about scientific theories.

These two series are so similar that a whole group of Monogatari fans came out of the woodworks to shit on Rascal for being a shameless rip-off. That's how similar they are. Can't say I have any opinion on the matter since I love both, but I will say it's an understandable frustration, and they're not entirely incorrect about it being blatant. Doesn't mean Rascal's bad though, they're both still fire. Basically, cool guy assists high school girls who are afflicted by supernatural occurrences. -harem of chicks who are attracted to the MC -tsundere-ish main chick -philosophical and profound subject matter If you enjoyed the Monogatari series and desperately want   read more

Guy helps a girl (mysterious, beautiful and tsundere) solve her problems and became her boyfriend. The same guy find more girls who need help and he does whatever he can in order to help them. Regarding aesthetic and male MC they don't look alike at all.

Bunny Girl Sempai is basically Monogatari, minus the ecchi, minus the subliminal text flashes, minus the avant garde artistic choices, minus the violent fight scenes, with a somewhat less perverted and more faithful MC and a much nicer, less psycho girlfriend.

Both are harem anime with supernatural girls with romance. Monogatari focuses more on character interactions and is more supernatural, while Bunny Girl Senpai focuses a bit more on romance and tragedy.

These two are quite similar in concept. Both are about high school students dealing with supernatural occurrences. If you like one of these shows, you might like the other.

Both got tsundere female mc, Mc helps other girls with their problems, a deconstruction of harem, Chad mc, heavily dialogue based Only difference is that the character designs in bakemonogatari are more memorable than the character designs in bunny girl senpai, bakemonogatari is a bit more graphic and bakemonogatari has more abstract scenery.
