Better than most episodes of the series
A continuation of the series that was better than most of the show. The main cast was great as usual, and it carried the bebop charm. There were some plot conveniences Rasheed somehow slipping some of the virus into the vase, The Indians being in the very location spike fell off the train to save him, etc. But it's a solid film.
Tenki no ko (2019)
Good with a very realistic ending
Good. Looked incredible and the story had a very realistic satisfying conclusion. Tokyo sank glad they didn't have an everybody wins copout. It had its cliché power of friendship moments and some plot conveniences but overall a good watch. There was also a callback to Your Name a movie by the same director.
It was way too over the top in it's directing.
It was a typical crime drama with the rise and fall of a kingpin. The directing, music, and characters were very over the top and obnoxious. There was also way too much profanity but other than that it was fine.
Boku dake ga inai machi (2016)
Pretty good first half abysmal second half
Favorite Episode: Getaway
The first half was pretty good, but the second half and the ending were abysmal. This needed to be extended beyond 12 episodes. They left so many unanswered questions in regards to his powers and created so many plot conveniences/holes and muddled character motivations that sunk the show for me. It just wasn't a satisfying conclusion. All issue's listed below:
Back to the Future (1985)
Was cliche and corny in a lot of places but it ended well.
It was cliche and corny in a lot of places, but they followed their own time travel rules and it ended well. Watching Marty's mom try to bed her own son was hilarious.
It was fun despite it's flaws.
Favorite Episode: ACT5: Streets of the DEAD
Fanservice aside, this started out promising with its shock value and serious undertone, then slowly devolved into absurdity. Dodging bullets, drama for the sake of drama, MC started two-timing, countries just launching nukes for no reason, Hirano flipping his lid cause some guys were using swords and not guns, really? The fanservice was terribly placed in the back half, people would be getting eaten, then 1 scene later there's fanservice that cheapened everything. Overall it's mediocre, though I was entertained despite it's flaws.
Satisfying ending to Monogatari. It was pretty standard.
Favorite Episode: Sodachi Riddle, Part One
It ended the main Koyomi saga well. Not much to say, it was pretty standard monogatari. The dialogue was cumbersome/unengaging in many places but this is still one of the better monogatari's. Most of the remaining plot points all fit into place by the end.
Zoku Owarimonogatari (2018)
This one was pretty good. Overall Monogatari is hit or miss engagement wise but always well written (COMPLETE SERIES REVIEW)
Complete Series Rating: 7.2
This is the "afterword" and final ending of the Koyomi saga. The ending was fine, and it revealed an interesting take on the characters.
Complete Series Review:
In its entirety, Monogatari is a tightly written supernatural witty harem. While it excels in its artistic presentation, covering its own plot points, making things come full circle, making S-tier characters; it greatly lacks in engagement. Very frequently the dialogue was just unengaging and bland. This was most notable when we got large info dumps (from Gaen) and they tell us about events rather than show (ex: Shinobu's backstory pertaining to "darkness" was just an artistic slideshow). In an already dialogue-driven show, we should get to see these types of events animated rather than just talked about. This flaw made it tiresome to get through installments like Koyomimonogatari. Lastly, the fanservice can be ridiculous especially since this isn't an "ecchi", and the incest service is beyond stupid, but overall Monogatari was a well-written mixed bag. This is a niche anime and will be a hit or miss with most viewers.
This is the Weakest Monogatari
Favorite Episode: Koyomi Dead
Besides the final three episodes, everything else was "fillerly" and really not that good. The best part about this was getting to see all of the main cast again and their respective openings. Other than that this is the weakest Monogatari.
Looks Amazing, But the plot not so much.
Favorite Episode: Yotsugi Doll, Part 3
It looked exceptional but it was meh and stale in the end. Besides the one revelation with Araragi's powers this one was not very impactful. Tadatsuru's monologue, in the end, made absolutely little sense and was so difficult to understand that I just wanted to stop watching. Yotsugi really carried this one. Weakest entry in Monogatari so far.
More plot driven than the other Monogatari's. Definitely the strongest entry so far.
Favorite Episode: Nadeko medûsa sono yon
Most plot-driven eventful installment of Monogatari. So many pivotal moments for the main characters. Plot points came full circle and also opened new questions to be answered in the final season. The recap episodes were pointless and like all the Monogatari the dialogue can be slow sometimes but it made up for it with more plot progression than the other installments. Probably the strongest Monogatari so far.
Good with a touching ending
Favorite Episode: Suruga Devil, Part 4
Good, we finally got to focus on Kanbaru. Numachi finally going to heaven was more touching than I anticipated. Really not much to say here, it's also one of the better entries of Monogatari.
Kaubôi bibappu (1998)
Most overrated Anime Ever (Serious)
Favorite Episode: My Funny Valentine
The most overrated anime ever. The soundtrack is great, the animation aged like wine, and the main characters (besides Edward and Ein) were great with how they addressed their pasts. The best episodes were the ones that revolved around the character's pasts (which should have been all of them). I've noticed that the people who call this a masterpiece either haven't seen another anime, watched this when it came out (nostalgia), or are infatuated with episodic style shows. It's not that deep. Most episodes are forgettable with cliche and contrived antagonists; only the episodes dealing with the main cast are good. Honestly, this was just better than the other animes at that time.
Nekomonogatari (Kuro) (2012)
People Saying this is Pointless are ridiculous. This is a Great addition to Monogatari
Favorite Episode: Tsubasa Family, Part 4
Here we finally learned the full tragedy of Hanekawa. The soundtrack is spotify-level and this arc filled in the gaps of the Hanekawa arc in Bakemonogatari. Araragi is still a dunce for not even thinking Hanekawa could harbor feelings for him but this is one of the better entries of the Monogatari series.
More lighthearted than the other Monogatari's. Incest Service Aside it was a Fine Show.
Favorite Episode: Karen Bee, Part 3
Quicker dialogue than Bakemonogatari but still carrying the sharp commentary. The incestuous fanservice was bothersome (the infamous toothbrush scene, the oddly strong sexual tension between Karen and Araragi, Araragi kissing tsukihi ect...) and it boggled my mind how they gave us incest service but not fanservice of the main couple (we saw him kiss his sister but not hitagi?!.) This show also didn't have the dark undertone that Kizu and Bakemonogatari had, but as a whole, it's mostly fine with a few great episodes.
Ridiculous fanservice, and a bizarre final fight. But Overall it was fine.
Continuation of Monogatari series. Filled in the reasoning for Shinobu and Araragi's relationship in Bakemonogatari. Right now how exactly the power system for vampires works is confusing Araragi took kiss-shots power but somehow is not more "vampiric" and is more human? The fanservice was distracting this time and really unnecessary. The final fight was also too bizarre given the situation. Other than that it was fine.
Better than part I, It's Fine Overall
Stronger than part I. It had a decent amount of unexpected shock value. Example Hanekawa getting impaled and it also connected more plot points from Bakemonotagari in regards to Hanekwa and Araragi's relationship. Yeah, the fanservice was a little strange at times but not distracting. Overall it was fine.
It was meh, connected some plot points from Bakemonogatari
For some reason, I felt like this could've been condensed. A lot of times there would be nothing happening, not even inner monologues. This made the pacing feel very slow. Overall it was ok and served its purpose in setting up the next two parts.
Good Overall, the Dialogue is Fresh and Entertaining
Favorite Episode: Tsubasa kyatto sono ni
Good overall. It's witty entertaining dialogue with interesting characters. Almost like an anime Twilight Zone. It can be formulaic sometimes, but every arc brought something new to the table and it never got stale. The fanservice in the last openings was strange but didn't detract from anything.
Senjougahara is the highlight of this whole thing.
I Was Disappointed, This isn't a Great Show like People Say. (Read before you Watch)
This is a rare example of something with good writing: (they explain most major lore questions even if the answers are bad Kyubey literally said magical girls defy all explanations when commenting on their origins) that is just lacking in the engagement department. It just felt meh. Madoka's character was stale up until the last episode, and I just didn't care about anyone besides Homura and Sayaka. There are also notorious plotholes such as Homura letting Kyubey live initially despite having the ability to stop time, Sayaka saving Madoka despite not knowing where Madoka was, world governments not doing anything about magical girls despite Kyubey stating they literally evolved humanity and have been around since ancient times (so magical girls existence isn't a secret), Madoka's mom letting her "brave the storm" in episode 12, ect..
I tried something new ended up not liking it.
Coming to America (1988)
Ruh roh I didn't like it
Extremely cliché, predictable, and very hit or miss with the humor. The ending was so abrupt and rushed it ruined an already mediocre film. I swear people just slap the word "classic" on anything that gives them a little nostalgia.
A Consistently Good Crime Drama with a Few Great Episodes
Favorite Episode: The Good, the Bad, and the Dead
Consistently good crime drama. It's at its best when Pablo is at his worst. It's 50/50 between fact and fiction. Cons: there were way too many characters jumping in and out of the plot, and the sex scenes were ridiculous but other than that it was good with a few great episodes. You could tell when the writers deviated from historical events because plot-holes were introduced for the sake of shock-value and added suspense. (e.g Pallomari being a moron and leaving U. S currency out to add more suspense despite this being totally unrealistic)
Shin seiki evangerion (1995)
Could've been a masterpiece if they actually explained the Lore.
Favorite Episode: Asuka Strikes
A psychological "mecha" show. It's not really about the mechs/plot, but more about the messages around human interaction. I can see the argument for this being a masterpiece, but it doesn't explain major plot points and leaves too many unanswered questions to be one. I shouldn't have to spend hours on a wiki to get half-explained answers to questions such as where did Adam come from? What was the first impact? Why do angels want adam? What is the dummy plug actually? Seele? Why is Gendo such a terrible father? Lance of longinus? etc. The actual lore, and why things are the way they are is this shows pitfall. They don't get into it enough for everything to align with the audience.
A Ton of Fun and Ton of Flaws with a Unique Ending
Tsuiraku no sutêji
A ton of fun, a ton of flaws, with a unique ending, (dubbed the "Lelouch Ending"). Most flaws stemmed from events happening because the plot needed them to, not because they remotely made any sense. IMO this is slightly better than Death note because at its worse (holes and all) it was still entertaining, while at Death note's worse I had to force myself to keep going.
Gekijouban Violet Evergarden (2020)
It's a fine movie
The last installment of the Evergarden series. It's a satisfying ending to Violet's story. It's a fine movie.
Gilbert's resurrections makes little sense considering his wounds but I'm glad violet got a happy ending
