I watched all of Bake and some of Nise. It was nice to look at and I like Araragi when he's yelling tsukkomi's but I hated having to pause every time there was a red/black screen.

I recently bought some of the novels and I'm enjoying them.

Does Senjogahara ever stop being a bitch? Every other girl I've seen so far is a better match for Araragi than her.

>>158723225
I loved the series and quite liked the style used to tell the story. I became a bat man after watching the series.

So what you're saying is you're reading a manga novel 1 frame at a time.

This show desperately need a dub, what kind of loser is going to spend 30 hours or whatever reading all that fucking sub text.

I mean, you don't have to pause.

Senjogahara does change. She is perfect for Araragi because she's crazy and addicted to him enough to deal with his shit.

Mr protagonist will fucking die and kill himself to save his buddies and treat himself like he is disposable for his friends. Senjogahara understands that he is this way and keeps him in check by telling him she'll murder him or other people if he does some stupid shit, which is just the right amount of drastic threatening for the type of shit araragi puts himself through.

She also knows he's a pervert but is ok with it.

The other girls would probably go crazy if actually in a relationship with muraragi-san.

I disagree, the only ones who wouldn't put up with his shit is Nadeko for obvious reasons and Hanekawa since she's not a coward like Gahara and is actually willing to call Araragi out on his shit (not how she is at the beginning of the series though, admittedly). No one actually takes Gahara threats of murder seriously, we've seen in-series examples of that already (first arc opens with Araragi getting physically attacked by the chick and then just ignoring it to help her even)

I don't dislike Gahara at all but even after reading the rest of Owari I've never felt that she was "perfect" for Araragi at any point, thought the whole point was that they both had to work to keep their shaky as shit relationship together. Most people seem to agree that Araragi has better banter with pretty much everyone else in the cast too which doesn't help (personally I feel that Gahara has better banter with everyone else she's ever interacted with too)

Shinobu is kind-of a happy medium. She picks her battles for what sort of shit she's going to call Araragi out on and then puts up with the rest.

Then how come it's not a visual novel?

Monogatari is a waste of anime production money because the lack of constant animation defeats the purpose of the medium.

More money to be made in the anime format. It would fit a VN better though.

An audio book, or a book for that matter, will be great at opening your mind to visuals and action. Read the Dresden by Jim butcher for an author that is great at visuals.

It doesn't mean that you have to be pure fuckin' dialogue.

I thought the series in general was pretty boring but I really enjoyed Kizu to the point where it redeemed Bake and helped put things into perspective. I don't understand why it's told purposefully out of order since it completely detracts from the story.

Kizu was originally planned to be animated after Bake but then got delayed for years (there are teasers from back then showing a pretty different visual style for it even), blame Shaft/Aniplex.

>>
>>158731816
Top 5 for sure, though I prefer the Sodachi stuff that makes up the first half of Owari (easier to just group it altogether), the Nadeko Medusa arc itself was more interesting than Hitagi End in my opinion (and I didn't feel like Hitagi End was a satisfying conclusion to it personally, even if it was good in it's own right), Suruga Monkey was probably the arc that sold me on this series at all and Koyomi Vamp is great too even if the movie adaptations does certain things about it weirdly.

Monogatari is haremshit for pretentious hipsters who think they are too cool to like haremshit

Most people here just seem to like the harem itself. You guys keep calling the fanbase pretentious hipsters but the threads about it aren't that different to the usual haremshit waifufag threads, maybe a bit more plot discussion occasionally but that's it. Maybe it's different on reddit or mal or whatever other places you people frequent.

It's not really a happy medium. Let's look at the three big people in his heart atm, Gahara, Shinobu, and Hanekawa.

Shinobu is an oddity, unlike humans, she doesn't have to worry about a thing, her future or whatnot, and being with Araragi means she has sustenance, and can freely get intimate affection from him despite him having a girlfriend. Due to their longevity, she has all the time in the world. Ironically, she has the Hanekawa mentality, but the ability to wait as long as she needs for him to be free and available, and he let's her stay by him, getting affection all the time. This shows Araragi being a bit of a hypocrite during the rejection scene with Hanekawa, but explains his mentality with asking her to stay in his room right after. Guy wants his cake and getting to eat it too subconsciously, but won't freely admit it change that.

Hanekawa was rejected, but he tries to flirt regardless of the fact he is too chicken to commit. Which current Hanekawa shuts down every time he does so. Says she is fully behind Gahara/Araragi pairing, and reminds him about that every time she sees him slipping. Said flat out she wanted a serious relationship, to date with marriage in mind, Araragi knows subconsciously she wouldn't take cheating down lightly.

Gahara, as her character shows, tries to maintain a strong front. She doesn't like the situation she is in right now, and Araragi is terrible at communication in a relationship. But she is too afraid to rock the boat about Shinobu or his antics both because she likes his supposed altruism about helping others, and because she couldn't do anything about Shinobu because of Araragi's diehard feelings. She is also very much still wary of Hanekawa, despite her being an incredibly intimate friend and proving more than once she supports Hitagi's relationship with Araragi, despite her feelings.

So it's all a mess Nisio forces to maintain the status quo. Maybe Deathtopia will change things.

Which is unfortunate, because I actually like the visual style from the Bake intro significantly more than what Kizu finally ended up with.

There's something infinitely more appealing to me about major scenes taking place in regular Japanese settings, rather than the excessive, exaggerated all-CG kind of shit they went with.
>>
Is dialogue more interesting than good direction? There are so many youtube analysis channels analysing every shitty shot they make in a movie or anime, but there's almost no one talking about good dialogue. I like monogatari because, while it does have good art direction, it's mainly that dialogue that is the focus.
>>
>>158734867
TBF *monogatari is a tiny bit pretentious.

Though that is probably intended to be a character lens through R-raragi's perspective.

I disliked the excessive amounts of fanservice. Just like how I dislike the fact that most quality VN's are ruined by sex scenes. It's what keeps it as chink pandering cartoons instead of being recognized as actual art.
>>
>>158734867
>it's mainly that dialogue that is the focus.

90% of the show is literally just blatant exposition and explanations of what is happening in a character's mind, word for word.

The bantz every once in a while is alright if you're really into the whole Japanese wordplay thing, but this is really not a series you go to for well-addressed dialogue.

also i have no idea what you think monogatari is trying to achieve,the aesthetic of the whole show just seems "read the scene take some drugs then render it it's fine",and the cinematography is usual shaft faggotry of overly detailed lips and the weird neck pose 8 times an episode.
