    The Monogatari Series

    Looks like a REALLY good series, but this anime has like 30 different parts. Can someone tell me the 1st seasons name? So I can start this anime. (Confused on the name, and I know people in the anime section watch this anime)

    Thanks for the help

    Watch it in release order rather than Chronological, since not all of it is out yet(plus it's better that way)

    Also, the series hops around in time frames. Here is a chart that shows where you're at. There are spoilers obviously, so I wouldn't recommend looking at it till you're caught up to Owarimonogatari(current) but it's worth having around.

    The show is a lot more enjoyable if you watch in order of release instead of chronologically.

    You're trolling, right?


    The main character is Araragi. There is no romance, other than a relationship between Araragi and Senjougahara. He still lusts after Hanekawa, but would never actually do anything. The only female showing interests in him more than friends is Hanekawa, Kanbaru, and obviously his girlfriend. You could imply *spoiler* Hachikuji

    Well since he is a "EX" vampire, he tech doesn't have any powers right? Since wiki doesn't show any.

    It depends on the time frame. Just watch the series. If you're asking these questions I'm guessing you haven't watched it.

    If you did watch it, then look at the chart I posted earlier. http://i.imgur.com/2jcWKLI.jpg You should be able to tell when he has it and when he doesn't.

    Koyomi is the main character.

    Kanbaru is never lusted after or is ever hinted at being more than friends by anyone but Kanbaru.(because she's a pervert)
    Hanekawa is not in the race anymore
    Hachikuji lol, no. Hachikuji is a "bro".


    Honestly the plot is going to come down to Shinobu vs. Hitagi eventually.(by this I mean in his un-released books he's going to have to have this).


    You're forgetting Yotsugi I guess, but even then she's weird so I understand.

    Well yeah. Araragi is Koyomi. Koyomi Araragi.

    Kanbaru is simply her craving after him, which is what I said. I never said he craved her.

    Same with with Hanekawa. She still shows interest even if its very slightly.

    Yeah, Hachikuji was a stretch. There was that scene that made me think that way.

    Shinobu would maybe try to go with him but I dont really see it from what we've seen, and nothing hints that in Kizumonogatari.

    Yotsugi doesn't show anything for emotion. Shes bland in that sense so I didnt think she counted.

    just my thoughts

    kanbaru only believes in physical relationships and not emotional(she said so herself). they're just friends with benefits (if any). they're attracted to each other but they're not gonna go anywhere

    For Shinobu, Shinobu only thinks of araragi and her as a servant/master relationship. it's pretty basic

    Hachikuji. She loved him as a close close close friend but not gf/bf stuff. Did she want to stay close with him? yes. Did she want to be his lover? no Did she want to leave? no.

    disregarding hanekawa and ononoki because irrelevant

    Friends with benefits is still a relationship, even if its not one that he has with Senjo. They're obviously not going anywhere, it's just comedy.

    Empire mentioned Shinobu vs. Senjo and it was going to be in his unreleased books.

    Hachikuji? I know that. She still shows emotion towards him that could eventually lead up to something more. It's the idea, not the current action.

    >Disregarding Hanekawa

    She should be his girlfriend. Read Kizumonogatari, or wait till the first part of the movie and you'll see why.


    Ononoki just doesn't show emotion.
