I desire to watch the entire Monogatari series, starting with Baka today, is it a worthwhile investment? Mostly because there isn't much this season and I decided I want to watch Kizumonogatari but of course that seems like a retarded idea without watching the others...

Even though it's a prequel from what I understand it still seems like it's the last in the series that should be watched.

Am I doing the right thing?
>>
>Baka
You're the baka around, senpai.
>>
Watch in production order, start with Bakemonogatari. For anything you want to watch do it in production order.
>>
The monogatari series is good if you understand that it's a pseudophilosophical harem with heavy emphasis on fanservice and dialogue. Even though the plot would make you think it's an action show (part-Vampire high school student fights monsters and ghosts), most of the budget goes towards creating avant garde scenery, unique OP/ED (everyone gets one) and panty shots.

With that in mind;
1) The fanservice is phenomanal
2) The scenery is gorgeous
3) When the action shows up, it's bretty good : D

If you're cool with all that, I say watch the whole thing you faggot.

The show is god-tier. The only people I know who don't like it are autistic faggots who can't read fast and only like moeblob circlejerking.

1. Great art and story
2. Shaft
3. Toothbrushes (you'll get that one next season m8)

Correct. The series is good, OP, and you should watch it in airing order, as always.

He's right. There's literally nothing worth watching.
>>
Watch nise first, even though you have no fucking idea what's going on

Then start from production order.
>>
>>135958944
There is boku dake ga inai michi and dagashikashi if you haven't read the manga. The 10 min series are good too.
>>
Watch in production order.
You'll very likely breeze through Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari. Monogatari Season Second sucks for the most part, but Kaiki's arc is fucking God-Tier.
Hanamonogatari is quite boring.
Tsukimonogatari was good.
Owarimonogatari starts off very slow, but it picks up fast by episode 5.

I want ask Nisio Isin how he manages to make his side-characters so good, but the protagonists so bad. Rrrgi is alright as a protag, but when the girls are the center of attention they get boring as fuck. It's like they put up a show for KoyoKoyo or something; they are only interesting around him.
>>
>>135955254
Yeah, it's good. So long as you're not watching it for the things /a/ claims to like in anime*.

As ever, production order. Bake- is first.

(*like, there's tits, there's lots of tits. But you shouldn't be watching this *for* tits. There are also many potential waifus and the occasional cool-looking fight, but if that's why you're watching this, you're going to be bored.)

Hana was great. Tsuki was pretty meh except for that OP.
>>
>>135955254
Bake is the only great one.
Nise is shit. Neko is meh. Hana has some good stuff.
Second Season and Owari is okay.
>>
It's good, some arcs drag. Some of the incest shit gets on my nerves though. Nise isn't great but it introduces some of the best characters.
>>
>>135958668
Anon, you need glasses, the girl in the pic is not crab.
>>
>>135959389
Nah, nigga. That monkey girl interacting with Kanbaru was pretty boring.

Tsuki at least had very good fanservice.
>>
>>135955254
Watch it in the order it aired/was released.
That is, Bake, Nise, Neko, Second Season , Hana, Tsuki, Owari.

I started the whole thing last month and finished recently and it is probably the most consistent and constant-high-quality set of stories narrated by anime.

You'll love the characters and their development aswell. Also their haircuts.

The only ones who don't get the beauty of monogatari are the sperging kyoani drones. Give them no regard.
>>
>>135959911
>That monkey girl interacting with Kanbaru was pretty boring.
I thought it was pretty interesting, I liked their dynamic, so we're just on a different page here.

The fanservice I don't really give a shit about and besides, Hana had Kaiki, so that trumps fanservice.
>>
>>135959972
>>Give them no regard.

I don't intend to, Kyoani made Free! From what I am aware, and it's an abomination.

Bakemonogatari -> Nisemonogatari -> Nekomonogatari: Kuro -> Monogatari Series Second Season -> Hanamonogatari -> Tsukimonogatari -> Owarimonogatari

Watch it in airing order. I'm going to read/watch Kizu after Owari. Should I be watching koyomimongartardi after Kizu?

Do it OP, it's gureat.
>>
>>135955254
Watch the others first.
>>
>>135958971
This is some bad advice.

>>135960549
You can watch Koyomi now. It's spread all over the timeline, so it's literally everywhere.
>>
>>135955254
I too have decided to watch the entire thing also. When I see a season where nothing appeals I look backwards and reassess things.

Nearly pissed myself laughing that on wikipedia it's categorised as "Avant-garde", which one of you did that?

It assumes you know a whole lot about the series and are more invested in the characters, so you really can't.

Anyone have a list of recommended BD release for each Monogatari?

Oh you. I may not have watched it but I lurked long enough in threads to pique my interests 6 years later.

Don't get me wrong, I like the series, but it could definitely do without the fan service and the crap you mentioned. Some of that is done for comedic reasons, but really the show would be better served to just drop the pandering. It probably wouldn't sell as well without it though, so it's not going to happen.
>>
>>135955254
watch Bakemonogatari and Nekomonogatari.

Everything is is crap.

She's a bitch in the least offensive way, but some people will always hate the bantz.

Hachikuji brings bantz. Crab gets insecure and acts like a bitch.

Truth be told, you saw a fair bit of Kizu in the first minute or two of Bake.

It would certainly enhance the experience.

That's part of her charm though. Insecurity is part of her character anyway.

nise, while maybe not as strong as the other seasons, is still plenty interesting when viewed as an overarching discussion on the topic of "fake vs real". And it provides some deeper character development while also introducing one of the most interesting characters in the series(kaiki)
>>
The monogatari series can go from absolutely god tier programming to absolute trash depending on who is on screen at a given time.

For example: Kaiki, Shinobu as opposed to Snake or Cat

Somewhat off topic, but do you guys write down the lessons and themes you learn from anime (and I guess other media) for future reference? There's a lot of stuff in monogatari that i'd like to save but I never get it written down somewhere. I'm slowly forgetting all that shit and I think I'm going to have to rewatch the whole damn thing soon.

Like others have said Kaiki's arc in second season is amazing

The first episode of Koyomimonogatari was pretty good.

Can't wait for second cour of Owarimonogatari for Mayoi Hell as well as ZokuOwari.

Hopefully Kizumonogatari: Tekketsu-hen gets subbed and released soon. There are no local showings anywhere here.

Thoughts?
