This is a thread dedicated to the Monogatari anime only series. The entries in this series include so far:

1. Kizumonogatari(To be animated in 2013)
2. Nekomonogatari: Black
3. Bakemonogatari
4. Nisemonogatari
5. Monogatari Series: Second Season

It is written by the genius Isin Nisio, also the writer of Medaka Box and Katanagatari. Though Monogatari is considered his greatest achievement.



Synopsis for the first series:

Bakemonogatari centers on 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. After being threatened by her, Koyomi offers her help, and introduces her to Meme Oshino, a middle-aged homeless man who helped him stop being a vampire. In each chapter of the series, he encounters a different heroine, each involved with a different “apparition”. The events of the previous chapters play an important role in the subsequent ones. The series primarily focuses on conversations between characters; it contains a fair number of parodies of other series, as well as Nisio Isin’s trademark wordplay and metahumor.





So I recently finished up the anime Bakemonogatari, and I was very surprised with how much I liked the characters. The story isn’t amazing, but the characters(Especially Hitagi Senjougahara & Koyomi Araragi), are awesome. It’s a very weird series; it’s like if Joss Whedon decided to take up a drug addiction.

I know that those of you reading this thread have probably heard of the famous Bakemonogatari, watched ep 1, and was weirded out by it. I was too, so you’re not alone. This show is very focused on characters & dialogue, so if you focus on those elements, you will probably enjoy this quirky series.

I plan on starting Nisemonogatari very soon, and I can’t wait for the prequel movie,Kizumonogatari.

It sounds rather interesting. I’ll have to check it out sometime. Do you know any good websites to watch it?

I’ll probably watch it after I finish Code Geass(again).

It’s actually pretty short, and yeah. I liked it more than Nisemonogatari

Always preferred Kanbaru over Hitagi. I’m probably in the minority though.

Hitagi didn’t get hardly enough screen time imo.

I like this series also, Koyomi being my favorite.

^Of course Butcher, you’re probably the only one in the minority. EP 12 of Bakemonogatari is what made me love her so much.

So, I started on the novel of Kizumonogatari today. As I thought,this series works better in book format. Not that the anime is bad, it just fit books better IMO.

So I was listening to random OSTs, and stumbled upon this.

While listening to it, I scrolled down to the comments, to find out it’s from Nisemonogatari (it also says so in the description box).

If this series has a soundtrack this good, I can’t wait to get in to it.

I hardly if ever notice OSTs unless they’re mind blowing.
