Bakemonogatari

BakemonogatariThe somewhat episodic nature of the show turned me off at first, but I was soon turned back on by what is probably the best Japanese prose in the business. And also great characters.

Positive: Negative:
Fantastic artistic animation The story is episodic jumping from one girl’s story to another
Great character designs The actual plot is not really all that interesting or deep and is only saved by the very witty writing
Good soundtrack
Great charming, profound characters
Senjougahara is a fantastic heroine
The tense bizarre relationship between Araragi and Senjougahara is very interesting
Extremely good sense of Japanese language with many genuinely funny puns
The apparitions are tied up to actual mental diseases
