The final episode is hype as fuck, and not just because it's about mai waifu

It's underrated. I liked it a lot, I still prefer Bake but it had some excellent parts.

Most people just remember the toothbrush and bathtub scenes and somehow forget all the other good stuff.

Joseph James

makes sense, karen and tsukihi are the best monogatari girls

Andrew Lopez

Nise is the most shamelessly self-indulgent of the monogataris, but it does also have some good scenes and storylines.

It also marks the transition to the slightly more polished, slightly less experimental style that was to become the default Monogatari "look."

Jordan Butler
Jordan Butler

No.

James Richardson

It's a meme to shit on it for the shameless fanservice but I was legitimately impressed with how many levels the "imitation" motif worked across the narrative.
Episode 1 is one of my favorite episodes in the series with how well Araragi and Hachikuji play off each other.
Kaiki is a great villain and turns into an even better character later.
And you can't go without mentioning the reconciling with Shinobu.

I don't know if Bake was overhyped to me or what, but I really didn't feel anything when I watched it

the art and presentation are interesting but that's about it. the characters were boring, all they do is talk in long-winded jokes or metaphors or non-sequiturs

Henry Long

You've been an idiot since you were conceived so don't worry about that.

Brayden Gomez

I remember that I finished watching the series after Nisemonogatari back in 2013 because I thought that it's the last season

I just rewatched it and I'm loving every second of it. The artstyle, dialogue and characters are awesome. There's a little bit too much fanservice but it's okay.

Should I watch in this order?
Bake
Nise
Neko:Kuro
Second Season
Hana
Tsuki
Owari
Koyomi
Kizu

Jason Kelly

Don't forget about Ore Monogatari and Katanagatari

Jonathan Lopez

Liking either already means you're an idiot.

It introduces some of the best characters in the entire series.
It's also my favorite season.

Tyler Bennett

But Sup Forums told me Monogatari was for smart people!

Justin Butler

Which subs should I watch for this?

Just finished bake.

Christian Richardson
Christian Richardson

Well it's not for smart people, it just requires a specific kind of humor and a little bit of patience to enjoy it. Being smart helps too, but it's not a requirement.

hidamari is smarter than monogatari.

Coalgirls

Probably.

Ethan Morris

I like Bake the most out of all to be honest, because it works as a standalone story so well. Not to say that other season are bad, but Bakemonogatari holds a special place in my heart.

Nolan Bailey
Nolan Bailey

Nisemonogatari has the best animation quality in the entire series, and while Tsukihi Phoenix is very rushed, I think it's one of the stronger seasons as a whole, seeing as Second Season tends to be very uneven.

David Kelly
David Kelly

It's more polished in terms that is has all of that bake money on it, and it's literally made for people who liked the characters in bake, as it has lot's of fanservice from them and many lighthearted conversations with them, it's pretty happy fun times in general. The sisters story while not amazing still has some really neat stuff in it, like the introduction of the other oddities hunters, the many plays with the theme of imitation and some really well animated but also a little poorly adapted fights. In the end if you liked the characters from bake and doesnt hate the sisters nise can be as fun or more than bake, but if you just want a concise and tense story then you will leave disappointed.

It's not that it's for smart people, but if you are dumb you probably wont like it, that doesnt go both ways though.

Lincoln Evans

Hidamari is one of the few shows I remember dropping indignantly, because I wasted 4 episodes waiting for it to pick up, and episode 5 was literally "MC has a cold. Watch her stare at walls". Fuck that entire franchise.
The girls aren't even cute.

James Miller

The girls aren't even cute.
Whoa, user. Let's not say anything we might regret.

I'll give it to Miyako, but fuck just about everyone else.

Sebastian Martinez

Because it was only about his sister's and Kaiki, Kaiki being a con artist, Tsukihi being his fake sister and Karen faking her motivation. He rejects 2 and accepts one just to maintain the status quo instead of accepting change.

Bake had 5 girls and Oshino but it was less preachy.

Mason Reyes
Mason Reyes

My favorite arc of the whole series was probably Hitagi End. Specifically Kaiki interacting with purple joke girl.

Is Koyomimonogatari worth watching at all? Why is Kizu only coming to home video in practically August?

Jaxson Perez
Jaxson Perez

Mayoi Jiangshi continues to be the highlight of the series for me. It felt like an episode of Rick & Morty.
Shin & 'Ragi

Joshua Fisher
Joshua Fisher

Koyomi is hit and miss, although you absolutely need to watch the last episode to understand what's going on in Mayoi Hell.

Jordan Wright
Jordan Wright

No it's actually all good and you were memed.

Wyatt Myers
Wyatt Myers

It's a reasonable time frame for a new novel to be released in and I'd be surprised if Nademonogatari didn't have Nadeko in it since it's spelled with the same kanji as her name. Well, I wouldn't be too surprised if Nisio intentionally made the name misleading.

Brayden Taylor
Brayden Taylor

Definitely watch the final 2 episodes as they contain new plot. Koyomi torus (episode 7?) is also just plain great.

Camden Long
Camden Long

also koyomi water (Ep 4) for zoku owari

Angel Rogers
Angel Rogers

Eh, I thought Nise went too trippy.

Monogatari Season 2 has Hasegawa as the main character, so look forward to that.

Ian Evans
Ian Evans

No, Nise is the best Monogatari, even outside of the fanservice scenes.

Caleb Mitchell

Oh yeah. I forgot about that.

Justin Ward

S2 > Owari > Tsuki > Koyomi > Nise > Bake > Hana > Neko

Adrian Price

Its entirely taste, I had probably the most fun with Nise but thats mostly because Bake had already introduced me to the characters

Ryder Campbell

Bake > Nise > Koyomi
The rest are right

The answer is always - without exception - release order.

Lucas Miller

The only question is anime release order or novel release order.

Zachary Fisher

If you are watching the anime, anime release order.
If you are reading the novel, novel release order.

Ayden Lopez

I'm pretty sure Shaft didn't intend for Kizu to come out 4 years late though.

Aiden Hughes

I'm afraid so.

Nathaniel Walker

no
bake is certainly 10/10,
but every installment since has just gotten better and better
i feel they were still exploring what they wanted to do and how for most of the first cour
people who don't think nise or hana or anything else in this franchise is just fantastic are retarded

Evan Adams
Evan Adams

it is literally not possible to be better than 10/10.

Angel Martinez
Angel Martinez

No. Bake is overrated by nostalgiafags and Crabfags. The other installments are generally l better.

Adam Ross

Yes. Bake is the only decent one in this garbage series

You're just going through puberty or have a little sister fetish like literally all of Sup Forums. If you castrate yourself, you'll realize it's not as good as you think it is. Try it and see.

I want to re watch Bake, which subs do you recommend?

Landon Thompson

If you don't know Japanese, there is no real point in watching any part of this series

Oliver Watson

you just like fanservice more

Jayden Rogers
Jayden Rogers

Good taste. I might actually put Owari behind Tsuki, because that last half wasn't so hot.

Christian Kelly
Christian Kelly

Honestly, kind of. Nise is worse, but it's not bad at all, it's just that the fanservice is dialed to 11.

Elijah Rogers
Elijah Rogers

Why is that bad?

Andrew Torres
Andrew Torres

Honestly, it gets to the point where it detracts from the series a little. It's high quality fanservice though.

It's not as bad as, say, Kenichi, but it really is excessive.

Oliver Turner
Oliver Turner

But how does it detract from anything?

Gavin Smith
Gavin Smith

It's understandable, you get to meet second best girl.

Daniel Jackson

bake = 7/10
nise = 8/10
neko = 6/10
SS = 8/10

(I stopped watching here)

Tsuki had the best fanservice in the series though.

heavily cherry-picked images taken from entirely one scene

Please tell me you uploaded this for the fanservice-y frames and not because you think it's actually funny or an actual criticism of the series as a whole

you're right, it also has sexualized minors

Angel Ramirez

-gatari is kind of like SZS somehow in that it gets better once you are past the character establishment part.

Also you are probably an idiot too but that is irrelevant to this conversation.

Josiah Cox

Now you understand.

Jaxon Turner
Jaxon Turner

I understand that a lot of the phrases used are ones generally used to describe the show, but please don't tell me you think it's funny. Aren't you the one that's new?

When did you start coming to the board? 2013? 2012?

Jason Cruz

How can one person be so new and retarded?

rehash of last bake arc

James Thomas

2012 is actually about as old as that image actually

Jose Morales

Sure thing whatever you say

Except, you know, extremely more fleshed out.

Doesn't point out flaws in argument
Doesn't address or analyze the post in any way
Calls poster new and retarded to avoid having to explain his opinions
How can one person be so new and retarded?

Dominic King
Dominic King

Why am I not surpsrised that you're the same retard that actually said to not bother watching Monogatari if you don't know Japanese.

Logan Bell

But I'm not, though

neko was clearly worse unless you really like Hanekawa and we already had the ONA

When you're out of puberty you'll understand.

Anthony Ramirez

I agree for some girls, but I'm not sure about best girl snail.

Thomas Williams

Exactly how fucking new are you, user?

Nathaniel Johnson
Nathaniel Johnson

I liked that Nisemonogatari was so unabashedly sexual unlike Bakemonogatari which was only mildly sexual and had this constant air of trying to not be immature.

They embraced it the second time around and I appreciate it.

Brody Thompson
Brody Thompson

But how is that different than the other one? They're both the same unfunny joke.

Hunter Price
Hunter Price

There's more fanservice and I can't say I enjoyed it any less than the other parts of Monogatari, but at the end of the day once you're finished with it, you realize that nothing much *happened* in it besides character interaction that might further make you like certain characters (like based RRG) and the introduction of Kaiki and Yozuru.

Logan Wright
Logan Wright

What was the Nadeko Medusa one called? Owarimonogatari? It's definitely one of the best arcs.

Joseph Cruz

Logan Mitchell

Should I watch Commie or Coalgirls for Owarimonogatari?

Lucas Myers

Commie for memes.
Coalgirls for bloat and mediocrity.

Thomas Gutierrez

Commie did owari well.
CR subs were sometimes painful.

Logan Anderson

I loved episode 7 of Nise, one of my favourite Monogatari episodes. The music when they face off with Kaiki is amazing.

Easton Rodriguez

Everytime Kaiki shows up the music is awesome.
