You have 10 seconds to tell me why this wasn't AOTY
Protip: you can't
Tries too hard to be original. Personally, I despise this kind of art style and animation, and it doesn't feel like anime.
Because it had Nadeko
Because I couldn't finish Nekomonogatari.
kaiki character song album when?
Everything outside of Kaiki's arc was pretty mediocre IMO.
>stills and only mouth moves
Skip it, it's just a mediocre prequel anyway
Because Kizu never.
Dialogue was definitely unique, but I'm not a fan of it.
Everyone looks manly up close.
It was all pretty shitty after this scene
>dialogue with out an outcome
That shit wasn't even philosophical in nature. It was just shitty character analysis.
That's fair, although I'd have to disagree, seeing as how I only really disliked the tiger arc. Everything else was rather enjoyable
Kaiki arc was one of the best things I've seen in any anime in the past couple years IMO
OP, you won't get many positive replies on monogatari around this time.
typical SHAFT hate is awake.
I could watch Senjougahara talk and make silly poses for a whole season.
>my dick don't like it so I don't
Fucking hell, this theme of overly sexual anons only watching shows for cute girls and ecchi shit is pissing me off.
He's also asking for people to bash the show.
But no, you're totally right. Nighttime /a/ amirite?
Are you an idiot or can you only read the bottom of comments?
I kinda like the negative responses, something to think about I guess. Albeit most of them are just dumb one sentence responses, you can get some good discussion here
I'm not a Shaft fag.
Monogatari S2 was even more absurd than the previous seasons. Araragi was even more of a perverted rapist, and even the blue-haired familiar loved him - I can buy the other girls falling for him after he saves them, but this one was just too much irritating harem bullshit.
The cat part, time-travel, and snake bit were all well all decent, but it just fell to pieces when it got to shinobu's storyline.
But it was.
The stupid fanservice is what makes Monogatari, Monogatari. Some people obviously will hate it, some love it.
I personally liked the Shinobu arc, but I can understand arguments against it, it was a bit much at times
It was, and by far.
>Is it art?:
It's got an uncommon style of mostly stills that some people like but it's not something new.
>Is it deep?:
>Is there a good story?:
No, any overarching storyline is thin at best
>Is there character development?:
Some, but most characters are presented as tropes and stay that way.
You may like it and I won't fault you if you do but there is nothing that makes it AOTY or even AOTS.
Because Senjougahara is a repugnant bitch and a one-note character who is never ever funny.
rip in peace
because chihayafuru and non non biyori aired
It's the same pseudo-intellectual ecchi schlock that has been shafted to us over and over again.
Thus it cannot be AOTY.
I watched every episode and liked it a lot, but somehow, I just can't group it with other anime. It's more like an audio-drama with visuals, or something else that's hard to define. Something that's just outside normal evaluation.
Because Non Non Biyori aired in 2013
nisioisin is the very definition of a hack, SHAFT can't draw, and their direction for every show has literally been one of two formats for years now.
The last arc was great, but the rest didn't seem very connected. That's what stopped it from being truly great.
Felt like something was missing compared to the previous seasons like it was just a mishmash of stories, and a few of my favorite characters barely made appearances.
Also Hanekawas arc was the worst shit. I can't believe I sat through a rehash of the exact same drama 3 times. (Her arc in BMG, her OVA series, Monogatari 2nd season)
You're a faggot.
NNB can never reach monogatari's level.
Why not? I really like Monogatari, it was one of my favorites last year and I think people like >>100347957 are just plain retarded, but Non Non Biyori is amazing. You may not like iyashikei, but if you consider the goals of a show in this genre, you can clearly see that NNB has reached them in a magnificent way. It's probably the best healing anime in a long time.
Also, the sceneries and soundtrack were beautiful. The animation may not be that good, but they knew were to put their money.
The entirety of the new season was trash aside from Kaiki. It would have made a good 6 episode series if they smashed together the needed prologue for Kaiki and his episodes and left it at that.
because crab a fucking shit
But you couldn't have Kaiki's arc without Snake's arc
Because long hair > short hair.
I wonder how the series will escalate futher from this point in the story because I don't know how it can beat apocalyptic alternate worlds and one of the heroines becoming a god.
Snake arc was fairly pointless. Even through all the blathering, they barely made the point that Snake has been living and will forever live in a fantasy world she constructs.
It could have been done in one or two episodes easily since they mostly just pulled from the previous Snake arc in order to show she was victimizing herself and she was being toyed with by far more intelligent agents.
Is it pseudo-intellectual though? I don't think it has made any attempt to be intellectual.
