Bakemonogatari!

alt text

This new Anime has an interesting plot line which seems apparent one moment, then not as much once more...!

Bakemonogatari centers on Koyomi Araragi, a third year high school student who is almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire. One day, a classmate named Hitagi Senjōgahara, who infamously never talks to anyone, falls down the stairs into Koyomi’s arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs next to nothing, in defiance of physics. After being threatened by her, Koyomi offers her help, and introduces her to Meme Oshino, a middle-aged homeless man who helped him stop being a vampire.

When you first watch it, it'll be quite apparent that it's quite similar to Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei by it's style of presenting things and having the same voice actor for the Main Character (Kamiya, Hiroshi).

What do all think about it...?

Added a summarization in the first topic for ya all... :D

But don't be fooled by it, to get a better feeling of it watch Episode 1,2 and 3 and you'll see for yourself what's it like... x3

Also, it's Genre is Supernatural (Which is a big chunk of the Anime... xD) and Romance, though don't expect your typical romance, I didn't even know that it was until later watching it... xD;

So give it a go, It's a sure win... :)

I'm a huge fan of this Anime already. This summer I really wanted to watch Haruhi, Spice & Wolf and Umineko - but the one I actually crave is Bakemonogatari.

In a way this reminds me of Utena, what with being a low budget production with an own (great) visual style, the wicked dialogue and the rampant symbolism.

It doesn't deconstruct a genre though - I think. And it's not really a mindscrew. It does play with your expectations, though.
