    So that explains why it took till episode 3 for them to get an actual ending animation going.

    Those were “removed due to certain circumstances?” I always thought it was just part of the show's weirdness. I guess not knowing Japanese does have advantages.

    well.. watched the raw already.. i have to say that int the first part of the ep the animation was pretty good.. well.. bakemonogatari standard that is.. but during the fight scenes it went way downhill.. please please please let more animators join shaft!

    and oh yes.. it needs more senjougahara!!!

    Urgently recruiting animators.

    Perfect for aspiring weeaboos.

    Bakemonogatari...what can I say? After watching the series (episodes 1-12) on a weekly basis I completed each episode without fully understanding what was going on. Of course I got the "how the f*** can you miss that?!" bits, but the parts where you had to pause to read the subtitles were a miss for me, so I didn't really grasp the background details of the episode and the character's dilemmas. But still it manages to be my favourite anime this year. A huge redeeming factor of the show was when Senjogahara (sp?) finally makes a f***ing appearance in episode 12, if she didn't come back and show her pretty face, this show would be fail! (A slight exaggeration on my part, but did anyone else feel the same way before watching episode 12?)

    Also, I plan on buying the DVD when (and if) it comes out, so I can fill in the blanks that I missed on my first run through and also they can fill in the scenes they cut and maybe improve the animation instead of giving me still frames to look at, which I didn't really mind at all, because I was watching it free. Now I'm paying... I demand quality.

    Watching this episode was worse than watching Endless Eight episodes 2-7 for the first time each (not the first and last ones as those were the only different ones). Watching one of them again after several weeks, though...holy shit, my head felt like it festered O.o ...but this latest Bakemonogatari was still painful to watch, even knowing their current circumstances.

    I still haven't given this series a watch.

    If it's this good I'll have to.
    ...then again I hated K-On and it sold well...

    Actually there was a joke about this in Zan Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei Bangaichi, in one of those 0,5 sec text flashes we have come to expect and love from SHAFT.

    "If you have time to mess around with this, you should be concentrating on Bakemonogatari."

    SHAFT is the best. End of.

    The first pic is not from the OP. The actual OP is actually quite clean.

    As for this episode, the lack of animation killed it for me. I was used to a lot of still imagery and stock footage in this show, but to me, it didn't even look like they tried to compensate it with anything. Couldn't they have used something else than the "Voice/Line removed" and the "scene removed due to circumstances" boxes?

    Maybe rewatching it again later will change my mind.

    He was fighting an invisible snake in that episode...there really IS no way to animate it nicely

    I felt the "removed due to circumstances" parts actually made the fight more exciting, made it more suspenseful, and they showed it the way most other fights are animated/shown I think it would've looked a lot dumber.

    Also, look at any other things shaft has done, they've done many other "simplified animation making scenes much more epic' like the text message scene in 'ef' just one blank screen with writing laying and writing on top of each other became one of the most memorable scenes in a series

    Eh, watched the subbed version yesterday.

    Considering the pacing of the story, you don't really notice the missing images.

    Probably, because previous episodes had similar "inserts" during the action, the Kanbaru vs Araragi fight comes to mind. With the inserts representing thoughts or wishes. Essentially narration for the viewer.

    Much ado about nothing, to quote a title from the Bard.

    I love SHAFT, but they are becoming the new GONZO, using fan service to attract more … well, fans. Then again … haven’t they always been this way?

    I've finally realized the point of Sankaku Complex is to be annoyingly sensationalist, but this one has gotten under my skin anyways. By allowing these inconveniences to seep into the show rather than half-assing everything and pretending it's fine, it's creating a postmodern subtheme to the production that I'm thoroughly enjoying.

    Further, Neon Genesis Evangelion, arguably one of the best anime of all time, was absolutely brilliant when the entire production was on the verge of collapse. Shaft could emulate similar conditions to similar success.

    Considering that Shaft has had several joint productions with Gainax, it doesn't surprise me that they took this route and it won't surprise me if they emulate Gainax in other ways as well.

    Pretentious tripe. The studio must be very badly run to get into this kind of fix. You can admit they messed up catastrophically without saying the show itself is rubbish.

    Whether bad run or not it's the only studio being original in the whole Japanese animation panorama, period. Same with animation: whatever you say Ep9 loli oppai was the best ever.

    I see, no wonder Arte hardly make any weekly coverage about this show like Queen's Blade; he somewhat really despise it..

    Blasphemy, id say this is the most entertaining show to air in the last month. I'd rate it on the same level as A certain magical index.
    Apart from visual nitpickings its unique style of presentation and enjoyable mix of fanservice with suspense itself alone already guarantees a solid 8 on the scale of 10 and only rising based on personal bias.

    Finally a show also the not socially starved can enjoy after that moe blob frenzy and pantsu witches constantly stealing the headlines.

    The readers demand more Bakemonogatari articles!

    When i saw this episode i was like hell wtf... There were only few frames and sound in background meaning that there was something actually happening, but nothing on the screen but this stupid "black" and "red" subtitles. All episode is a trash. It should be redone, and they shouldn't be doing stupid excuses, even if so, they should postpone this episode and finish it for next week.
