After 3 years, I just finished Monogatari season 2. Damn, it absolutely superb, and it reminded me of why I loved Bakemonogatari so much.

Also, why is Kaiki the best girl?

i know there's a whole circlejerk over kaiki because of "le kieki best gril memay" but i genuinely love his character and just how well-written he is overall, i hope we get more of him in the future LN's
>>
>>152540850
there will be more LN's?

Does this means more Monogatari Anime?

>>152540850
He's so much fun. Nobody else in anime has as much quirk as he does without being over the top silly or crazy.
>>
>>152540886
yes, a whole new series called "monster season" with the first story being about shinobu apparently

also shaft said they'd animate monogatari in its entirety so
>>
>>152538000
Why does everyone love Kaiki? I honestly found him an insufferable cunt.
I hate those shows where the adult characters are more chuuni and edgelord than the more down-to-earth teenage protags. Meme Man and his college club are easily the worst characters in this series.
>>
>>152541033
The thing is you can't really label Kaiki as having a certain strict personality type. I think that's a big part of why he appeals to people - because his motives, intentions, and self in general is something that isn't blatant and straight-forward, you have to apply your own perception and try to figure that out; all with the thought in mind that everything about him could just be a lie, which makes it even more-so intriguing.
>>
>>152541194
So it could be that he's only pretending to be immature and rude as fuck?
No matter his reasoning, I can't stand his "yeah, that's how I roll, bitch" kind of attitude. It's hard to put it into words. The worst part is that the other characters always put up with it.
That's the worst kind of character, the one that's insufferable as hell with his annoying quirks but the others have to put up with it because he's on the "good guys" side.
>>
>>152541282
immature?

Kaiki is not that hard to understand.
He does things that benefit him but puts up till the end even if that means that he loses something in the process.

For example the Nadeko incident, he agreed to help after Senjougahara gave him the money but then followed through the end even if that meant that he would have no money at all because he gave it all to nadeko.

His charakter is someone that starts things because he gets something out of it but never stops till he accomplished his task.

I doubt it was that complicated. He just wanted to save Gahara's life.

Shinobu would be a bigger dick about it than I was
>>
>>152541282
Except hardly anybody tolerates him. Araragi hates his guts and basically exiled him from town and would never have tolerated his help. Which is why Senjougahara had to be circumspect about asking him. And she also does not like him at all, but realized his skills would be needed.

Kaiki isn't somebody I'd call immature either. He's very rational, but has this established persona that he attempts to maintain. The situation with Sengoku put a massive strain on this persona though, because he felt an instinctual need to help Senjougahara, yet he had a hell of a time rationalizing it with his persona. His bathroom soliloquy was basically him rattling off excuses until he found one, however tenuous, that was copacetic with his professed worldview of selfishness. To me, that one scene summed up everything I love about Kaiki.

Not the impression I got. I found him more comical after that. The impression I got was, he is a man whose skill set is fooling people, and this includes fooling himself into thinking he is a heartless, materialistic person when he is just as motivated by emotion as anyone. Well maybe not as much as anyone, but even he has limits.

Kaiki triggering the fuck out of Gahara by being unphased by her "childish mistake" was pure gold

even if he's a tryhard materialist/hopeless romantic outside of that scene it's irrelevant to me, making her snap was 10/10
>>
>>152542094
Nevertheless, there are still diehard snakefags here, and I've had many conversations with them in the past. Enough to realize there's just fundamental differences in character appreciation that can never be reconciled. Which is to say, they're fucking stupid and you can't fix that.

He was going to help deal with Nadeko regardless as soon as he heard that Kanbaru was in danger. Senjougahara didn't even need to be there.

OP here, going to watch it and then start season 3 today.

Forgot to mention:

Monogatari season 2 > Bakemonogatari > Nekomonogatari > Nisemonogatari

Part of the reason that I forgot to continue this show for so long was because Nise wasn't as exciting as Bake, but it did set up a lot of characters and plot lines that paid off in Monogatari season 2.
>>
>>152548127
Good taste lad. Nise is objectively the worst.

I'd say Owari is probably on par with Bake, except it switches out the god tier visuals with some breddy gud writing.
>>
>>152539498
What are the 3 specials? I thought I just had Hanamonogatari, Monogatari season 3 and then Kizu left?
>>
>>152548410
Hanamono
Neko Kuro
Koyomimono

I think at least.
>>
Nise > Bake > S2 > Neko
everything not listed is trash
Bird > Snake > Snail > Bat > Cat > Bee > Monkey > Crab
everything not listed is trash

Who else is watching kizu in berlin tonight?
>>
>>152548602
Wew lad

>>152548642
Worst girl is either zombie or monkey. Maybe bee but she's too forgettable to be impactfully bad.

Also yeah, you should marathon Koyomimono since it's 15 minute episodes. The plot quality progression is also fucking amazing and the ending will probably hit you like a maglev train.
>>
>>152548642
I don't like Snake as a person, but I find her very interesting as a character.
Something I always found odd in Bake is that her character arc never accomplished anything. Every other arc solved a problem and furthered the character's growth, but Snake had literally nothing going on. She was just a cute, shallow girl. Except for the fact that she "hates her body".
And then season 2 happens, completely acknowledges that and slaps you in the face with it. And it ends up being one of the strongest and most unexpected character arcs in the series.
>>
>>152548922
Agreed, Snake as a person is seriously one of the most fucked up characters in the series. It's very difficult to genuinely like her, At the same time she's brilliantly written and Nadeko Medusa/Senjogahara End is fucking beautifully executed.
>>
>>152548922
>very interesting as a character
Doesn't that apply to everyone though? I mean one of the reasons why I continued watching Monogatari after taking a hiatus when Nise ended was because I found the characters interesting and liked how we character motivations and personalities could be extracted from their dialogue and actions, without the blatant exposition that's done in many anime/manga
>>
Why is she so smoll?
>>
>>152549061
Monogatari is exposition the anime. Why are monogatari fags so deluded?
>>
>>152549061
It does, I just wanted to make the distinction between bad person and bad character, as >>152549050 pointed out.
Way too many people here tend to be lazy fucks and pretend characters are bad because they don't like them.
>>
>>152548783
I didn't even finish Koyo because it seemed like boring filler. Are you telling me that it is important?
>>
>>152549301
The ending is a major game changer. The first few episodes seem like filler but it's more or less intentional to distract the viewer so that they're caught off guard when the remaining episodes (ie the ones that end up affecting or playing a role in the plot) come in.
>>
>>152549134
dialogue heavy is not the same as exposition.
>>152549210
>Way too many people here tend to be lazy fucks and pretend characters are bad because they don't like them
