Who is your favorite Monogatari girl?
i kinda stopped having one. cat has a fantastically well written character arc, snake was very interesting, and crab was a lovable psycho with some really well done romantic scenes - but i just cannot get past the lolicon pandering.
it's distracting, lessens the integrity of the work as a whole, is inaccurate to the light novels (though that applies to a lot of the anime), and is generally gross and not at all funny despite how often the series tries to make a joke out of molestation or the sexualisation of infants.
i just cannot bring myself to care about any character associated with such trash
>he thinks it's supposed to be moralgatari
problably the responsible for these jokes has some degree of autism
but i don't think it impacts a lot in the characters, it just made them look like they're insane (and i think they all are)
Without lolicon pandering the world would be a dark and sad place.
obviously the one who made the fictional gags is the autist instead of the ones who take offense to it because they can't distinguish fiction from reality
tumblerfags really did migrate onto here, didn't they
>Best vampire loli
Not even Shaft's best vampire loli.
would you a spooky snek, anons?
There's something I can't put my finger on about Monogatari. It's as well written as I could possibly hope for, animated flawlessly, always visually interesting. It's easy to invest in the characters even when they're being silly. Objectively, it's top 5 of all time without breaking a sweat.
But there's still something missing that prevents me from feeling some satisfaction at watching it. Like I'm almost anxious at watching another episode. As opposed to something like Cowboy Bebop or Ghost in the Shell, where it's just easy to relax and watch it. But I can't figure out what aspect of the show makes me feel that way about it.

Wait, what? If your problem is just with the anime adaptation, how does that reflect on the characters?
snek isn't spooky, she a cute!
Could it be the excessive dialogue? I kinda see what you're saying. When I watched it I found that I would pause a lot to try and catch all the words on the screen and had to keep backing up to read everything. That's stressful and really breaks up the flow of the episodes, which is beautiful if you don't worry about missing little words here and there.
The visuals, voice acting, and music are all top-notch. It's also nice to have an anime protagonist who isn't a complete fuckup per usual.
The pacing can be a bit all over the place at times, though. Also, I hope you like lots of dialogue.
I went into the series knowing absolutely nothing, and its one of my favorites to this day.
All the girls are at least decent though
aside from shitty Snake
Lots of dialogue isn't something bad as long as it's interesting enough.
I guess I could give it a try, I kinda tried a while ago but I think I left the episode halfway cause I didn't know what the fuck was going on
I'm still on Bakemonogatari, I got into the series very late. I like Senjougahara a lot. She's mysterious.
Araragi getting into a fight with the ghost girl was hilarious but I felt awful for laughing. I hear he goes siscon later in the series.
>there are people, RIGHT NOW, on /a/, who wouldn't hug this adorable little goddess
I think people don't like Nadeko because she's literally a goddess. She's intimidating to lesser men and they feel insecure that a girl could slaughter them without so much as breaking a sweat.
There's nothing inherently bad about lots of dialogue, of course. It's just that I've seen some people on here complain about it.
The first episode is a bit hard to get into, yeah. They get into more detail about the supernatural stuff later on, so its worth getting through.
No anon, OP said favorite monogatari GIRL
snail then monkey
i find the lack of love for snail in this thread disturbing
Ack this is the worst....i usually can pick best girl in a series no problem but monogatari....there are too many best.
If I HAVE to pick....
Shinobu>snail=doll=bee=phoenix=monkey>all the rest (there isnt a single monogatari girl that I actually dislike, even snake is ok in my book). Am I the only one who cringes every time I hear cat say her signature line? Ruins the character for me
>tfw both best cakes have the least amount of art
the courage to get the fuck out of my /a/ forever you awful faggot
