I've watched all of the currenlty released Monogatari series and loved it.
However, aside from just enjoying the characters, art direction and dialogue, I really don't know what the overarching "plot" or themes are really supposed to be here.
Any quick and dirty explanations?
Head tilts, references, puns, banter, supernatural things, cute lolis, catch phrases.
Yes. NisiOisiN is a light novel author that likes bantz. Not an existential philosopher or anything like that. You've been fooled by Shinbo's hipster bait.
