Our Review : 'Bakemonogatari' is a true masterpiece in its genre. Attention was paid to the tiniest details, and a story is well-told and the ending was so satisfying that it almost made it worth a watch. Truly amazing direction by Shinbou Akiyuki left us with so many memorable scenes, and this will definitely be a series to be remembered. Definitely a great anime to recommend who likes mystery and supernatural things. Do remember to watch Nisemonogatari after finishing this, it's the sequel of 'Bakemonogatari'.
