Self-insertion male power fantasy otaku pandering gary stu harem protagonist, but this time it has lots of dialogue, stupid non-sequiturs, and pretentious philosophical non-sense, that allows the fans to pretend that it's DEEP.

An anime adapted from a dialogue-centric novel by an author renowned for dialogue has a lot of dialogue, how unexpected! One would think from your post that you're implying dialogue and fanservice are bad things.

Is this satire? Sarcasm doesn't come across too strongly on the internet. No one pretends Monogatari doesn't have fanservice, some people argue it isn't a harem but that's on the basis of a technicality, everyone accepts it has the character of a harem. The point people make is that there's nothing inherently wrong with those two things, a meaningful criticism would be arguing how those elements are in anyway to its detriment in terms of plot or character development, although I doubt anyone in this friend is honestly intelligent enough to think of it in that advanced a way.

Nope, the thing it's that in this animé every detail matters, the way they put it with images and mixed stuff just makes this anime be different from a lot of the same type. Listen, if you don't like it, it´s ok, but don't say stupid things about a great show that many of us enjoy.
>>
>>134073812
when i first watched bakemonogatari season 1 i thought it was boring too. then i enjoyed nisemonogatari far more due to the ramped up fanservervice and silliness.

now it's one of my favourite shows of all time and i should definitely rewatch season 1

>Bake
>boring
Even someone like me who wasn't used to anime with a lot of dialogue found Bake to be genuinely interesting. Between a nice use of Japanese mythology with a very dark approach (Bake is very brutal and crude, just look at Araragi vs. Kanbaru), an atmosphere very reminiscent of occultism, some good sakuga, some banter and genuinely funny gimmicks, good character presentation development and an awesome direction, it's pretty much one of the pillars of the series right now. No other show feels like Bakemonogatari, and only Second Season managed to surpass it inside the series but for different reasons.
>>
>>134073812

people only like it because of the girls.. anime has fallen pretty damn hard. This cancerous show is terrible and highly overrated. Anyone who likes it is literally inexperienced on what a great anime should be about.

You are a dumbass.

Yes people like this show only because he girls. Why is that a bad thing? Every single girl in this show is fantastically fleshed out character with a believable and unique personality. The whole fucking reason Monogatari threads have such huge Waifu fights is because all the girls are so fucking well designed that absolutely no one can agree which girl they all feel is the best.

This is the most perfected Harem anime ever made
>>
>>134074747
I wasn't implying that you didn't like it because of its genre, I was implying it doesn't appeal to you because your subjective preferences in storytelling. Some people prefer character interactions, word play, and comedic value over other things which other anime tend to focus on. Your entire premise that people only watch it for the fanservice and the girls is easily dismissed just by noting how popular the novels are.

As a fan of the series, I actually agree with this. I couldn't get into the series for a long time because of this, particularly because a lot of the meandering dialogue has zero impact on character development or anything else happening.

At the end of the day, though, Nisio is a pretty good writer who comes up with good characters and development and generally has something of substance to say.
