I picked OP 2 cause Mayoi Hachikuji is one of all time favorite girl anime characters

------
The Monogatari series revolves around Koyomi Araragi, a third-year high school student, who's almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire. One day, a classmate of his, the reclusive Hitagi Senjōgahara, falls down the stairs into Koyomi's arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs nothing, in defiance of physics. Despite being threatened by her to keep away, Koyomi offers his help and introduces her to Meme Oshino, a strange middle-aged man living in an abandoned building, who cured him of being a vampire. Once Koyomi helps solve Hitagi's problem, she agrees to become his friend.

As the series progresses, Koyomi finds himself involved with other girls, each afflicted by different "oddities", including the ghost of a child called Mayoi Hachikuji, his underclassman Suruga Kanbaru, Nadeko Sengoku, a friend of his sisters, his classmate Tsubasa Hanekawa and his own younger sisters Karen and Tsukihi. To deal with the spectres, Koyomi relies on guidance from Oshino and, later, from Shinobu, the same vampire who attacked him, now with the appearance of an eight-year-old girl.

Most heroines have an item which symbolises their spectres, such as Hitagi's stapler (the claw of a crab), Mayoi's backpack (the shell of a snail), Suruga's arm (the arm of a monkey), Nadeko's hat and jacket (the head and skin of a snake), and Karen's black and yellow suit (the colors of a bee). Although incorporating elements of fantasy, horror, and action, it primarily focuses on conversations between characters, containing parodies of other series, as well as Nisio Isin's trademark word play and metahumor.

Taken from Wikipedia


To me Bakemonogatari is he beginning of what is one of the most unique series ever. It is also a masterpiece. Its a show that if you let it draw you into its world it will take you on a fast paced stylistic, supernatural journey full over the top activity the likes of which you have never seen before.

This is a show that while it does have fast paced action at times, is more driven by its dialogue and characters. One thing you need to know when watching Bakemonogatari is that it is a series that come at you fast and a lot happens very quickly. In a show that is mostly about conversations this can be weird. The show is not without action however and when the action does come it is done in a very cool fast paced style that is also a bit unique in its own way.

The story is excellent and only gets better as each new character is introduced. Also, what fascinating characters they are. When each new story starts you are kind of sad to see the current girl fall into the background for awhile as in only a couple episodes you just grow that attached to them. I guarantee you before the series is over you will have a new favorite anime girl to add to your list, not sure which girl it will be, but it will be one of them.​

the only main problem I had with Bakemonagatori is with its sequel Nisemonagatori and a certain scene with a toothbrush....

i do share your feeling somewhat on the brush. It was a little odd. Nisemonogatari had to grow on me and while it is not as good as the other parts I still liked it.

I'm still unsure if this series is actually seinen. I mean it contains heavy ecchi and harem which is pratically speaking a heavy shounen focused anime.
Not sure if this is in the right section.
