Watching now: Bakemonogatari

I’ve been watching Bakemonogatari since yesterday and I’m at episode 4 right now. These four episodes show a lot of potential for further development and I’m loving it at the moment. The characters are unique and have their own personal quirks, Senjougahara’s way of speaking, Araragi’s view on everything and the little girl who’s name I forgot all have unique personalities and the way they play together just fits perfectly.

 

What’s also surprised me, though it might be because I’m watching the Blu-ray release, is the animation quality of this series. It is one of the most smooth and good looking anime I’ve ever seen, everything looks great, the details are there and the motions are just superb! One thing that does bother me is that they show a part of the story though still images that flash way too fast for a normal person to read, so eventually I just stopped bothering with pausing to actually see what they’re saying and those images don’t really add that much to the story line anyways.

The final thing that has impressed me a lot too about the anime is the ending song, I love it and I know this is a matter of opinion, but the calm and serene song combined with the simple animation makes the ending such a beautiful one. I’m not that big of a fan of Supercell, but after seeing this ending a couple of times, I’m definitely fan of the song. I might even have to check more of Supercell’s songs, because they might have some other amazing songs in there too.

All in all, after four episodes, I’m expecting Bakemonogatari to be a very good anime, nothing that will amaze me as much as Steins;Gate has, but still one I’ll be thinking back to later and might rewatch out of nostalgia. The characters are amazing, the story is interesting and the animation is top notch. If they keep this up for the other 11 episodes they have to go, it’ll definitely be a good anime to watch.
