Is it worth getting into Monogatari?
The animation seems beautiful and the girls are so sexy but from the videos i've seen on jewtube you have to pause all the time to read because they talk so fast and there's text background with text all the time.
That seems very stressful.
>pause all the time to read
The background text is Easter Eggs, reading them is not required.
No, watch the first 3 eps. The first 2 for the general format (MC saving a girl from supernatural threats who are actually the girl's fault) and the third one for the witty character interactions that make the show what it is.
>Is it worth getting into Monogatari?
Yes, it is. Read the flah texts is one of the cool things of it actually.
Watch it. It's one of the crazier things you'll ever watch in your life.
Truly love the show, but oddly the first ten-fifteen minutes or so are hard too get into for the first episode.
If you're not from Japan you really shouldn't watch Monogatari (or anything in the -gatari series).
All the -gataris series are are retellings of obscure Japanese folktales but with all the characters/animals replaced with cute girls. It's impossible to follow for non-native Japanese people.
I found the first arc to be an excellent world builder, but I wasn't that attached.
It wasn't until the second arc that I got really attached.
I think half the people that got into it were either hooked from arc 1 or arc 2.
Also, OP, be sure to really give the soundtrack a listen. Easily the greatest soundtrack in anything ever.
I had to rewatch it three times because it was difficult to catch all the subtle plots and character traits, but it's rewatchable so this isn't a problem. The first time I got the dank fanservice and comedy, the second time I got into the epic battles and stuff and the third time I got the main plots and character developments- which is really what makes it a great series.
I watched Bake a while ago and enjoyed it, It's a nice twist on a harem.
I'll watch the rest of the series later, Also Snail the best.
When I first saw this scene I thought it was some sort of /a/ meme. I just couldn't understand the context of it, or even remotely believe that it was his sister. Then I watched Nise. Oh my god did I watch Nise. There are so many things I want to say about that show. Pic related.
I've seen incest stuff before, but after watching this I couldn't look my imouto in the eye for about a week. I will never be cease to be amazed the things that can be sexualized.
real best girl hasn't even appeared yet you faggot
I absolutely loved bake and nise but I simply can't get past neko. I wouldn't say that it's bad or anything, but at least the first two episodes bore me to death. They talk so much about philosophical shit I'm not interested about. Am I the only one, who gets that reaction? Should I just skip it?
Unless your interested in wordplay and linguistic shenanigans, don't waste your time. It's pretty repetitive and disappointingly anticlimactic. I can only vouch for Bake and Nise, though, that's when I dropped this franchise.
>there's text background with text all the time
This was in Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei as well but we weren't lucky enough for all of the chalkboard dialogue to get translated. Damn shame
