Okay /a/ sell me on this.

Is this show actually good or is it only good for the fanservice just like every other shit harem?
>>
it's only good for the fanservice just like every other shit harem
you definitely shouldn't watch it
>>
You'll enjoy watching it, then /a/ will convince you that you hate it.
>>
>>145373004
Little bit of both.

It's worth watching. Thankfully, you can tell if you like it from bakemonogatari. If you aren't feeling any parts of that series, you can drop it.
>>
Actually one of the better shows personal;y my favorite
>>
It's a shit harem with fancy dialogue, fanservice and good SHAFTian visuals.
>>
>>145373004
Lots of fanservice
Lots of talking.
It's like 3 episodes of fanservice tinged talking then a resolution with fanservice included
>>
Good fanservice, playful character interactions.
I enjoyed it.
Watch the first couple to make your mind up.
>>
>>145373004
Depends what your powerlevel is. If you've only seen 20 whole anime (which is likely since you're asking for /a/'s opinion on anything), then you won't like it. If you're a seasoned anime connoisseur like myself who's seen over 400 anime, you will enjoy it.
>>
monkey is da best
>>
>>145373004
>hey /a/, I just got here and I need you to give me opinions on a show that's had daily threads full of opinions every day for the last seven years!
Fuck off.
>>
>>145373276
Honestly, it's the same as any other rec thread. The only difference is that it's specifically about an extremely popular show, so everyone wants to share their shitty personal opinions on it
>>
It's pretentious garbage.
>>
>>145373004
It's massively overrated shit. Watch for the girls, but don't expect too much.
>>
What is the appeal to this show. I don't get it.
>>
>>145373004
Absolute shit

Doujins are good though, Tom girl makes my dick diamonds.
>>
I really enjoy stories based more on the tell than the show, so I really enjoyed it. If you don't think you can watch two characters talking with pretty pictures for about 3/4 of each episode, for 88 episodes, you might want to look somewhere else
>>
>>145374539
Jesus fuck that first sentence was redundant. I apologize.
>>
>>145374464
Fun dialogue between characters who are well-realized and not cliches. Then add in some fanservice to help the wordswordswords go down smoothly.
>>
>>145374737
You could've just answered "fanservice". You don't have to sugarcoat it.
>>
>>145373004
Pornogatari.
>>
not like your time is valuable anyways OP
>>
>>145373004
If you don't like the toothbrush scene then this probably isn't the show for you.
>>
>>145373004
First season bakemonogatari was the only good one, especially mayoi snail. Everything else started becoming fanservice > story.

A lot of people will tell you that it gets shit after Bakemonogatari but in my opinion it's pretty consistent in quality besides from Hana and Koyomi which are shit.

>>145375118
>nadeko
ha no.
>>
Tried watching Bake and it fucking sucked, it was nothing but irrelevant and boring conversations filled with pretentious shit. Like the show tries to shove DEEP and MEANINGFUL aesthetic into your brain but as soon as you realize it's only pretentiousness all the ilusion crumbles and you're left with just a boring slideshow with the ocassional really good fanservice scene.
>>
>>145373004
It's good at everything it does.
Good fanservice, good dialogue, good characters.
>>
>>145373221
This.
>>
>>145375202
when i first watched Bake I didn't like it much, it felt boring. But I really warmed up to Nisemonogatari. The fanservice was dailed up to 11 and it was fun.

you're probably filled with hate though so never mind
>>
>>145373004
I typically hate harems and the only character I'd fuck is Araragi, but even I enjoy it. It's heavy on fanservice but the dialogue, characterization and directing are all top notch. It's a very unique, charismatic series and Bake is at least worth watching.
>>
>>145375202
>pretentious

There's nothing pretentious about Shinbo's directing - it's just visual window dressing to break up the monotony of a show that's 90% talking.

Anime fans are so used to being told that confusing visuals are supposed to be meaningful that they can't tell the difference between symbolism and something that's clearly just there to look cool.
>>
>>145375245
That actually sounds better, I think my main issue was that Bake just tried to hard to be a kinda smart show or something when it clearly wasn't

>>145375323
Think I get your point but I still think it was completely unnecessary, LoGH was also sometimes nothing but talking and pictures but it still managed to be interesting without trying so hard to embellish every scene.

Idk, maybe it's just that with all the love this series gets I went in expecting some kind of masterpiece and ended up getting dissapointed.

>when i first watched Bake I didn't like it much, it felt boring. But I really warmed up to Nisemonogatari. The fanservice was dailed up to 11 and it was fun.

I...I don't understand. Most fans loved Bake and were put off by Nise. I dropped Nise after episode 8 and nearly dropped the series entirely had it not been for Neko Black. How'd you manage to continue the series in the first place if you though Bake was boring.

>nearly dropped the series entirely had it not been for Neko Black
>Neko Black
I don't think you're in a position to question other people's tastes.
>>
>>145375593
Maybe you should try watching Bake again with that mindset? If not you could just move on to Nise, And then watch from there. The other arcs, while being filled with fanservice, still involved the characters being involved in more interesting/fun situations, as well as having actually decent character development/dynamics with each other. The girls, and other side characters who aren't part of Araragi's harem get fleshed out to the point where there are more to their lives than just Araragi, and even Araragi himself gets a few moments of actual character development. I mean it's nothing really deep but it's something more than most harem series have, and the character dynamics still manage to be enjoyable.
>>
>>145375593
But LoGH's biggest flaw is easily is the shitty visual direction. It was interesting DESPITE the fact that it was talking heads, but that isn't something to praise it for because it's a poor use of the medium.
>>
>>145375781
Yeah, that's what I was trying to get at, sorry if Ifailed to my point across, it's 4 am and my brain isn't really working as it's supposed to.
>>
>>145373004
bakemonogatari is NOT a harem anime you stupid idiots

Teenager meets vampire and becomes half vampire/human in the process, then helps all his friends from wacky monsters. Also meme.
>>
>>145375781
In comparison with other shows at the time and given the fact that it's a 100+ episodes show it's way above average.
Not to mention that given the serious nature of the subject matter it needed 'talking heads'. You can't discuss statecraft and warfare through imagery alone.

Not sure what world you live in, but monogatari has been casual entry level shit for years.
