Owari started so nicely, but the abrupt and stupid end of sodachi arc and shinobu mail ruined it. God, it looks so bad comparing it to bake and nise (especially shinobu and her awkward mouth)
>>
the fuck was that at the end?

did the first servant reincarnate into araragi or something?
>>
>>134082936
RRRG should be 17 or 18, it is probably just a coincidence that the guy came back 15 years ago.
>>
>>134082847
For Owari 1 ending, "mystery" aside, I just wanted it to not imply that Sodachi situation was somehow easily solved. Maybe it could have had the "you need to want happiness" discourse from episode 5 as the conclusion instead.

I enjoyed this episode though, though they reused scenes a lot.
>>
>>134083222
Yeah, I found it absurd how she "got through" the fact that she had her own mothers corpse for such long time.
>>
Everything is happening so fast.
>>
>>134083443
She hated her mother since she was a kid, why would she care about her corpse?
>>
>>134083503
Even if you hate your mother, a 17 years old girl should be affected somehow if she discovered the truth,
not just "oh ok, my mother was dead all this time, I was denying it untill now, I'll be happy from now on, thank you and goodbye araragi"
That didn't make any sense
>>
Didn't Shinobu start to fade out of existence just by hanging out in Antarctica?
So how... did this guy's suicide fail?
>>
>>134083634
>That didn't make any sense
Made perfect sense to me since Oikura is a sociopath.
>>
>>134083634
That was what I complained above, but it might have just been Araragi's unreliable narration. That or maybe Nisio or Shaft wasn't sure they would continue Monogatari after final season so he felt the need to give her an implied "good ending".

Regardless, having something less important in the last episode than in the previous one make it seem like that was a big deal for Sodachi, while it was just something for the three other characters to do.
>>
So why was Shinobu not in Koyomis shadow?
>>
Any lewd in this episode?
>>
Can anyone explain the ending? What did she mean by the ashes scattering to that town 15 years ago and then you promptly see Araragi crying as a baby?
>>
>>134084049
Basically his ashes going to that town sparked all the apparition shit going on around town
>>
>>134083634
She always knew the truth, but had been lying to herself.
>>
>>134083634
Before complaining about something not making sense, try understanding what actually happened instead of making it up. There was nothing about her becoming happy. We don't even know if she thanked Araragi.
>>
>>134083846
I'm seconding this question. Owari seemed like they skipped some time and events inbetween.

Why the fuck does Gaen always take swipes at Oshino? He is a cool uncle who protects the Araragi and saved the lives of the girls by giving them instructions. I mean Gaen is really coming off as a bitch.

Another note would be I wish more info would be dumped on who Oshino is and how he grew up to be who he is today.

Agree. This is how every episode goes.

Flashback from past episode
Talking with characters having not moving showing their eyes or head only
Static
Girl talks about the situation explaining it to
Mini fight happens here or near the end of the episode.
Araragi by showing slow mo of her arms or head twitching.
Snap. Fan service or detailing a feature on their body.
Episode goes back and forth with flashbacks.
Girl reveals something very important.
Sprinkle in some wtf backgrounds and no one else in the episodes besides those characters.
Rinse, lather repeat.

Something about her is not right in the head. I mean, child abuse does cause mental problems, so her not caring about "hey, I fed my mom's corpse without realizing she was dead" is logical. Either that or she's so broken it doesn't shock her anymore.

It really is this pretty much, it's such a joke people call it high concept and masterpiece tier material. It's also just gone on what like 8 installments now though you've seen the number of advocates for it really drop off to pretty much only a select few idiots mostly operating out of MAL. Maybe enough people are just finally getting tired of it growing out of it as it really hasn't changed or evolved much since 2009. It's very teen pervert oriented as well really.
>>
>>134084517

I directly blame Monogatari for getting 2010s anime off on a really bad track with its hit status. Now you have even more aimless droning fanservice series trying to ape it's stylization and tons of cost cutting. It's not the sole reason but IMO a big one so many late night anime are so fucking boring and full of shitty charters and ideas now and a template for how to please enough idiots while keeping costs and overall effort low. The fact that it's one of the most successful shows ever on Blu-ray just goes to show how far gone this media and it's current target audience has gone.
>>
>>134084517

It's super easy to make, super profitable and an enlightening example of why anime and it's target audience is kind of extra shitty nowadays and few in the mainstream take it or them seriously. I remember back in the early 2000's when stuff like Bebop and Big O were airing on cartoon network, Pokémon and Yugioh was exploding among children and it almost seemed like anime had a shot at mainstream status finally after all these years and then ADV and the licensing market folded only to get replaced by Aniplex and their shitty otaku bait stuff priced way out of market range that could never in a million years hope to make it to TV aside from SAO. It's pretty much all up to Attack on Titan these days.
>>
>>134088652
This isn't bad though. It could be better, but it's still not bad.
>>
>>134085891
Why is this droning repetitious dialogue so popular and praised nowadays. Like Isin is largely seen as a genius dialogue writer by this series fans and yet I've only ever been able to come to the same conclusion people have with this episode that a lot of it is just waste to fill time. I swear this series fans have to be like this most gullible people ever to not only tolerate this but equate it with genius and make it into a best seller. I'd call it the Twilight of anime but it doesn't seem like quite the same thing.

It's also a pretty big fuck you to shows that actually try that it'd always considered one of the best things in any given season and a per rental chart topper. No wonder anime is in the shit hole it's in with stuff like Monogatari and Fate at the top of the pack.
>>
>>134085239

I guarantee you Monogatari fans gave this segment a standing ovation after its done and are praising the seiyuu somewhere. To me it's like most of the cast hates being in this show though. Everyone always sounds so bored dispassionate and droning in their dialogues. Even Hayamin who always seems to be engaged in any role sounded like she'd been lobotomize playing the Doll character last week

How long before all Aniplex anime are homogenized to imitate the droning dispassionate, repetitious and convoluted pseudo-philosophical muttering writing styles of NisioIsin, Gen Urobuchi and Nasu. You can tell those are their absolute favorite writers in the world and that their fans will eat up anything they write or is written like their styles and I swear they're trying to make a formula out of it if God forbid they can't always get them to write directly or don't want to pay them if they ask too much. It's really noticeable in stuff like Saekano and this season's Subete Ga F Ni Naru.

There were much more useless talks, when they talked about sex, panties, feet and whatnot in this arc already, but if something that's actually relevant to the story goes on for longer than 5 minutes you're complaining about it?

Oh god that first 2 minutes was probably the best intro to an episode yet.

Seeing Shinobu eating that thing was soo cute lol. Oh god ARARARARAGI UR SO LUCKY!!! TO GET TO SEE SHINOBU UPSKIRT!!!!! Damn Ararargi laughing to recreate that scene in earlier episodes was a good treat. I started laughing along for a while.

I love how whenever we see Gaen the sky is always in that color. There was important dialog being held at the moment. Also a lot of talks about the past. Makes me realize that having Kizu next year was the perfect place. W.e you wanna speculate about Shaft I think it was more intentional than anything. The PV for kizu served enough info for this make sense visually.

Tbh this was a very well directed episode and the art and animation looks extremely well. Probably my fav in the season because it drops so many clues and hints to whats to come and what has happened. As she said it was very vague but its obvious that it will all connect in the end of the arc. The ending scene was done beautifully as well.

Crab, exposition at the end of 1/start of 2
Snail backstory on snail in the middle of 2

Bat had made a servant before araragi 400 years ago who then tried to kill himself. It didnt work because he is a vampire, he kept on trying for a while and 15 years from now he came to araragis town. Fuck you, you is dumb :^)

>but it was somewhat budget animation ep so they repeated same info which isnt good
This is the big part. A lot of it was even information already stated before. There were very few relevant sentences that actually mattered. It was like watching a recap episode with Gaen, the shittiest person to ever narrate.

If you don't like exposition and compelling dialogue take your Plebian tastes and short attention span elsewhere and go watch shonen action Naruto or Bleach and talk about them on Reddit.

Why do people hate Gaen? Do strong independent women scare you?

Confirmed for not watching Otorimonogatari.

Is this show actually good beyond girls? It would be my first anime, and I like paranormal stuff, but it looks like it will turn into a haram, which sounds boring and not good. I can watch other animes but it is hard to find them and if this one is good then I do want to watch it.

Yeah it sure was interesting and compelling listening to Gaen repeat herself and talk in circles for half an episode.

I l I'm confused - this episode only felt like it was 10 minutes long.

People hate Gaen because they can't enjoy watching someone be right.

They're going to rage when they animate Koyomi Dead and Gaen brings the thunder and tells Kiss-shot to nut up or shut up.

I don't even dislike Gaen, but I do want to see the story advance in a timely manner. having nearly half the episode be Gaen yap about a relatively small topic is pretty brutal. Several episodes during this season have been lots of talking, which is fine, but hopefully that talking is about new stuff, and not just "well yeah he lived and eventually came back here."

Actually I was being sarcastic but there are plenty of people, mostly teenagers who can barely string together a coherent sentence, that truly believe this. It say a lot about the target audiences standards that they think Isin is gods unending gift to dialogue.

This is probably the longest arc of the series to date and it feels like almost nothing has happened. Tons of shows manage to do more in an episode than this is probably going to manage to do in half a cour by the time it's done. They'll probably just leave all the resolution to the last episode like what always happens in Monogatari and people will eat it up and praise the genius of the staff yet again. It's like KEY writing, it cannot fail with it's target audience, all it has to do is exist and they'll just sing the same praises every episode, every arc and every season about how only Monogatari can be this compelling with just dialogue because ????

I'm seriously starting to think the Monogatari fanbase that posts online are just AI scripts linked to a handful of accounts.
>>
>>134091824
But Gaen has multiple levels of smug. She hasn't even gone into MAXIMUM OVERSMUG yet.
She also has condescending, patronizing and insulting.

She is effectively the most honest person in this entire series.

I think Gaen would be sorta in a rough position if she showed too much kindness anyway. With the position she holds within the world, she needs people to fear the power she holds since people can mistake kindness for weakness and I doubt we'd ever see Gaen asking Yozuru to drop a guy off a building to get a point across.

Oh okay, sorry for being autistic. But yeah, people in this thread think that because monogatari revolves around dialogue it's okay for it to be done poorly. It's an LN adaptation so I already know not to expect much, but it's pretty funny how people think every sentence must be some literary achievement of storytelling solely because it's monogatari and written by Isin.

>>134092053
Everything she said was relevant and necessary for the import the last three minutes had. If you can't deal with people talking for a long time drop the show; it says nothing about the quality of the show that when it spends a long time talking about important, plot-relevant, well-written and directed things, you find it boring because there's no action happening.

I find it boring because the majority of the stuff is already touched on, or known to the audience. It could easily be said in a third of the time; and while I do generally enjoy Monogatari arcs, most of this season has been relatively the episode-to-episode, with large swathes of monologues about things you already know.

At this point I swear its remaining audience outside Japanese otaku doesnt want to admit they've wasted five years of their life following a hollow style over substance series that probably could have covered all its story relevant material in 2 maybe even one cour. Overall this is the first time I've seen where there seems to be a growing concensus that its worn out its welcome and could stand to end. Its brining little new to the table, its not getting any new fans and seems to just exist to milk Blu-Ray sales off of lonely otaku and be cheap and easy to make. I remember back when Bake aired and it was kind of unique and everyone just seemed to rave about it but now I barely see anybody talking about it and only the idiot shitposters seem to still think its anything special but dont even talk about or discuss it like they used to with Bake. Its like everyone with half a brain already realized what it actually is a low effort low budget cash cow.

okay, quick question, do you think I should watch code geass subbed or dubbed? I've been told you should always watch subbed, but I also heard dubbed can be good from other sources, so I'm just wondering if I could get advice from the lord of anime?
>>
>>134093019
>This is why the board and site have gone to shit

You should explain to me why giving some advice to newfags shits all the board up

I can assure you newfags aren't the ones creating waifu wars, fucking around with maymays, or shitposting in general if that's what you're talking about
>>
>>134092837

The first lesson to getting into anime is don't listen to what anime fans have to recommend on the internet. I'm kind of lucky cause I got into it before the fanbase got overrun with LN/VN waifu otaku that worship half baked writers and concepts. I could never get into it nowadays for the first time if I was going based off of what people said were the best shows cause I'd just assume it was all horny teen oriented drivel with the odd action scene and convoluted droning and largely nonsensical dialogues. There's still some good stuff out there but its mostly OVAs or stuff not being followed by internet fans that are demonstrably socially stunted from growing up on it and a diet of crap like this franchise. My suggestion would be look for shows with low viewer counts and middling/few reviews. It usually means the idiot internet fanbase aren't paying attention to them and theyre probably decent because they lack the usual stupid shit LN style anime fall back on.
>>
>>134093059

Both are fine (for Code Geass). Usually people would say watch Subbed, but in the case of some exemptions the dub is actually fairly good.

A few such cases being Cowboy Bebop, Code Geass, Ghost Stories (especially this), Space Dandy, among others.

A lot of time dubs have very poor/flat performances, and are shoddy, though.
>>
>>134092985

No the anime fanbase is just full of idiots now, everyone with a brain either already fucked off to better mediums or is just enjoying sharing knowingly in the joke. All the good creators are either dead, already retired or have their foot halfway in the grave and have largely been replaced by people from the eroge industry who only know how to write for socially stunted otaku like Butch, Maeda, Nasu, Maruto etc. The only holdout at this point is fucking Mari Okada.

More like, autists responding to him/his respondants derailed the thread. Your post isn't helping re-rail the thread. If you'd just ignore shitposts/off-topic posts, they'd decrease in frequency.

All I see is that you people are nothing but shitposter enablers. You don't actually care about solving the problem so you're content with ignoring this or that up until the very last moment when you realized you fucked up and let the mods spit in your asshole and rim you in favor of the shitposters. They've already set a precedence, but you seem to want to repeat it ad infinitum.
If nobody responded they'd just resort to other tactics, like asking for recs and then responding to themselves to incite more shitposting. If you ignore it it will only get worse and more obnoxious.

Completely. Owari 3 spoilers.

Okay, I'm missing something important in the story when I read the spoilers a long time ago.

- Ashes of samurai guy drifted back to Shirahebi shrine
- Kiss-shot being a vampire felt a connection to her lost minion so she went back to Shirahebi
- Araragi's town is also the town where Kiss-shot first met the 1st minion
- Darkness also manifested in Shirahebi shrine

So did samurai guy accidentally cause darkness to respawn at Shirahebi shrine and darkness helped him recover? Or am I missing something else? AFAIK, Kiss-shot mentioned that darkness only appears when there's apparitions around and apparently Darkness is stuck to Shirahebi shrine only.

So, with that said, Araragi did cause the sudden spawns of apparitions all over the town because he formed a connection with Kiss-shot and Kiss-shot being Shirahebi's past goddess, resonated with this connection and caused the manifestations of apparitions from people that are close to Araragi and Araragi himself also got one

So was Araragi really supposed to be the one factor that ties them all?
>>

>This is why this fanbase is dying and stagnant as fuck.

That would be nice. Also "fans" in the west are pretty worthless to the anime industry as a whole (which is a good thing in my opinion, if I wanted to watch stuff with western influences I would be on /co/ and read lady Thor), so if you want to save something pick up your savior complex and chain yourself to some tree.

Because people like you would ruin this board and yes there is still plenty of room for it to get worse.

You retards don't think when you act, you probably don't even notice how you are dragging down the quality of all the places you frequent.

I'd rather have a bit of conflict than just sit back and "tolerate" everything like a retard. Because nothing ever gets better from people just sitting there and ignoring things.

it's different with what Gaen did. she just repeated a simple explanation over and over. there was no hidden message to what she said, it was really just somebody explaining a situation and trying to be 2deep4u.
also it's the longest a single character has talked in the entire series, she went 9 minutes and 2 seconds without anybody else making a noise. she was even doing most of the talking before her speech.

That chapter of the novel was entirely Gaen monologue from one paragraph to the next, without any Araragi narration. There were two chapters of this back in Onimonogatari, one from Gaen and one from Shinobu.

However, other people are indeed talking during this, Gaen responds. It was the same in Oni.

I think it depends on how the monologue is done. Episode 5 was mostly Sodachi monologue with just a couple pauses and it was done quite well, both because it was entirely focused, organized with no redundancy and very emotional, delivered by great VA performance. This one had better visuals but it did have a feeling of being things you already knew both from the story so far and because the monologue was circular, which could also make you miss the things that were actually new.

I did enjoy this episode overall at least, and I don't think it was worth all this reaction.

I don't have a waifu but Hitagi is indeed the best girl. I bet you also like cat, fag.

Hitagi is a faker. She acts like a tsun but is just insecure.

Wow good job, you just described what tsundere is.

Did Gaen's tablet break immersion for anyone else? Everyone's been seen using flip or slide phones since Bake aired in 2009, and all of a sudden Gaen-onee-san whips out her slick 2012 technology.

I guess some people just like being tools.

It seemed like to me they were suggesting that Araragi is the reincarnation of the original apparation killer.
>>
>>134097647
The thing that caused all the apparitions and shinobu to come to town was the samurai himself. He's the first servant of a legendary vampire so he's pretty damn powerful.

Araragi got dragged in when he encountered kiss shot.

I have no problem with infodumping that they generally do it better than that

This just came off as very lazy. Good thing I don't hate Gaen

we don't know in what year the series is supposed to be taking place. I think Nadeko mentions twitter in the novels too.

You also have to realize that Japan still has a lot of people stuck on flip phones. It took a long time for iPhone to get traction there, and it's only in the last few years' explosive growth that it's gotten to the ~70% it is now.

Whereas there wasn't really a tablet market before Apple created one (in 2010), so seeing a tablet alongside flip-phones really isn't that odd.

The Darkness has basically nothing to do with that shrine. The bad spiritual stuff that gathers there is a different thing.

They weren't.

This has been addressed in the thread already, but yes it is retarded.

>>134103421
The books don't treat the setting as being a particular year and instead let tech keep up with what exists when the books are written.

Oh wow, this thread. Between people complaining about infodumping, the other faggot copypasting comments from MAL and you idiots taking the bait and derailing the thread into rec shit, this is truly the best thread ever. Go kill yourselves.

But yeah, not a good episode. I enjoy long monologues and it was nice to see Araragi doing shit other than acting as a punching ball, but the Gaen monologue, although not empty content-wise, was nothing more than a rehash.

I wish I had a use for my big dick.

I was hoping that the fight would be better animated. The visuals for Gaen's monologue were great though.

How do people justify half the anime being literally slideshows? Literally zooming in and out of slideshows.

This may have been addressed already in the thread, but was the darkness following Araragi around in Second Season Eps. 17-19 the ashes of the Samurai?

maybe. maybe not. maybe wait some more.

It almost certainly is, as its punishing those thst arent furfulling their duty.

>>134104605

The problem was that the talking heads actually repeated itself multiple times in the conversation.

Which may actually happen, and does often, we as the viewer find it unsettling and lazy for it to take that long to get to the fucking point.

Damn, I keep hearing this ost in the series but can't recognize it at all. This song was also used at the beginning of the previous episode before the opening. Is it new composition for Owarimonogatari? I thought I heard it before though.

Araragi is 17, not 15.

Araragi likes fooling around with lolis, so it's actually pretty halal.

How old Ougi Bougi is supposed to be?

>>134109482
Ougi is born shortly after Araragi encounters Kurayami.

Monogatari more like redditgatari

So let's see if I have this all correct, as it's been a while:

The Samurai is Shinobu's first servant. Unlike Araragi, he has always hated her because she unwittingly turned him, an exorcist, into the very thing that he had dedicated his life to destroying. At some point following his resurrection, his cognitive dissonance results in him committing suicide but not before he makes a copy of his sword from his own flesh and blood and bequeaths it to the master he hates.

It's further stated that in Kizumonogatari that, although he is also Japanese, the only common point he has with Araragi is his nationality.

Assuming I didn't get anything grossly incorrect or leave anything important out, I have some questions:

*Does he only have the one sword despite being a samurai?

*If the one possessed by Shinobu is a copy, what happened to the original of his sword?

*Why did he leave his sword to the master he hated?

Ika, Kaisou (And now, a flashback) in the earlier soundtracks. Owari has a track that is reminiscent of it.
