Great show with striking animation
17 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Bakemonogatari is an anime for those interested in the unconventional and are looking for something unique. The show focuses on the supernatural affecting the characters lives and how the apparitions(spirits) they are bound by result from the unique struggles each character possesses. This is used to convey the shows idea of the mysteriousness of the supernatural and the human tendency to find answers and remedies through it once the suffering of the real world proves too harsh for some to deal with. Character development comes primarily through each characters personal conflict with the supernatural through the arcs which focus mainly on a specific character, allowing you to gain insight into the character and how the supernatural reveals certain truths to each character that they either sought to repress or did not understand about themselves, providing the viewer empathy to the character and personal attachment towards them. The animation through the vibrant colors and focus on light makes the physical features of the characters very striking and interesting to look at helping to capture the emotional moments of each character.
