Why i am loosing faith in the Monogatari series

I have said in past post that i have a bias when it comes to studio SHAFT and the whole Monogatari series i feel that the series as of late is becoming a hot ass mess. What happen?! This use to be the series that got 4chan and all the underground anime comminity talking because it use to be so good, great, amazing. Now, I just can’t really take its predictable plot, how it just RUINS all of the main characters by deconstruction what we came to love about them in Bakemonogatari and forces us to like all these new terrible personalizes that makes them totally unlikable. While i brought it up lets us talk about the plot in Monogatari. It was good in the Shinobu arc but after that it gotten terrible. I mean really during the Nadoka arc i could have predicted that she was going to become full yandere and become a FUCKING GOD which piss me the fuck off(See what happens when you ruin a character).  The only thing that keeps me watching is the visual. SHAFT have good visuals when it comes to each episode of Monogatari However, plot wise this season they are lacking. I feel that since Bakemonogatari did so well over here and in japan and Nisemonogatari did a good job putting Studio SHAFT on the map that now that the producers don’t have to put in half the efforts when it comes to writing Thus a shitty predictable plot! I will keep watching because its almost over but  that just how i feel about the series as of late.

Little Buster! Refrain ep 7

Rin has become so depressed that she only smiles when she is around children. why i don’t know and that kinda makes her seem like a pedo as well but whatever.  Kyousuke is gone in 1/4 of the beginning of the anime when Kengo and Masato fight. Riki tries his hardest to difusses the situation but nope doesn’t work. They fight Kengo ends up with  a broken arm. Kyousuke appares later and now he’s a hikkikimori. When the fuck did that happen? Why did it happen i would like to know.

So while Riki was talking to him he begins to talk to Riki in some Crypic message  saying “you still haven’t solved the mysteries of this world” bullshit meaning i still don’t know what the fuck is going on.  He tell Riki to leave because he is “getting to the good part” in his book.  Riki is confused(as he should be) because 1) Kengo and Masato are on the outs 2) Rin only likes to be around him but yet only smiles around children and 3) the Little Busters are falling apart. Side note what happen to Komari? Did KEY just kill her off screen? No explination. No warnings. No nothing. Back in the dorms Riki was talking to Kengo about Rin and Kyousuke  He tells Riki to leave Kyousuke alone but that Rin still loves him and to come up with something fun they can all do.

During one of his visit  with Rin he take her and decide to  become her kyousuke and help her break out of her depressed state.

So they look for something fun to do. Coming up empty they almost give up. Untill that same white cat Lennon plays with a baseball and Riki pick it up and ask Rin if she want to try she says yes. Some how this bring back a nostagic feeling for both because i don’t know how they forgot they BOTH WAS ON A BASEBALL TEAM!! This promts Riki to remember the question Kengo asked him and soon he returns with a box full of bats and mits and tell Rin that Kengo and Masato will show up to join them.

Masato show up first but then Rin hides behind Riki. It might be because she is broken down and scared of people that she wasn’t her Tsundere self but i was expecting her to kick Masato. Then Kengo show up. Some how Kengo is very upset by Riki wanting to start playing baseball.  He even tell him “It’s Just like Him!” meaning Kyousuke and tell riki that he isn’t going to play. Riki is even more curious and start asking masato what the fuck is going on. Masato tell him ” He’s come far enough ” and hand him back the baseball glove and then leaves.

OH GREAT. Just when i thought everything was going to be solved EVEN MORE FUCKING QUESTIONS.

It wasn’t as sad as the last couple of episode have been but it was very dark FOR IT TO BE A SHOW ABOUT BASEBALL! and what happen to Kyousuke? What made him a recluse like that?  What does he know? Mater of fact what does He, Kengo,and Masato know that Riki and Rin don’t?

Have you ever re-watched a anime series?

Listing to podtaku my favorite anime podcast a question was asked in the group  have any of the cast members re-watch a anime series  and  did it change their opinion they once held of it when they first watched it?

have any of you watched any anime series that you may consider your favorite over and over again or once a year and if so  has it change your opinion of it from once you first watched it?

I can honestly say i myself have watched a couple of anime series  a couple of times. Cowboy bebop 21 times now from when it first premiered on adult swim in 02  till now  when it re-aired on toonami  4 in the morning  and i’ve seen the cowboy bebop movie 7 times now.  Ever time i’ve seen cowboy bebop it’s always been Dub. Never Sub. I might just watch one episode sub to see if should rewatch the whole series in sub  but every time i watch it it seem like it has  a deeper and deeper meaning with me. when i first watch cowboy bebop i really didn’t get but I loved it and it install became one of my favorite anime along with inuyasha but  once i re watched it a second, third  the twentieth  time it became  more meaningful. especially episode 25+26. I loved that show even more.

Now as for inuyasha i’ve seen that anime a good 7 times. I don’t plan on rewatching the movies and 3+4 NEVER HAPPEND! I only recently stared to re-watch it again due to two thing a good abridge series on youtube wingmancrew abride renewing my love for it by abridging epsode 1-14 of the series making me want to check it out again and 2 toonami putting it on 5 in the morning.. This is kinda a tricky one but i will say this inuyasha will still be my favorite anime. The first 7 time when i watch this anime from when i was 12-17/18 i didn’t see it’s flaws. but it wasn’t  untill the abridge episodes and me rewatching it that i can finally see that   it has major flaws.I laugh now and i scream inside my head when i watch some of the episode but some of the episode bring up spark up nostalgia within me and remind me of days of when i first watched it.  Has it change my opinion of when i first watched it  i would like to say no but i do laugh at it alot more than i should.

I have plently of anime that i could list that i have rewatch some have change my opinion of that particular anime but others i still like and will continue to like. I want to know if you rewatch a anime has it changed  your view you once held of it or do you still held the view you once held when you first saw that particuar anime?

Little Buster Refrain episode 6

Well i wasn’t going to review this show untill it was completed but HOLY FUCK.  Refrain kinda blew its original predecessor out the fucking water when it comes to the drama and the fuckery. Watch Little busters! if you want light hearted drama MOTHER FUCKING REFRAIN …this is typical “WHY ARE YOU SHOWING ME THIS SAD ASS SHIT NOW IM GOING TO MEDITATE ON IT FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS WHILE ROCKING BACK AND FORTH IN A CORNER THINKING ABOUT WHAT IS LIFE WHILE TRYING NOT TO SLIT MY WRIST” Key animation plot.

-good character

-Plot that will make you question if you should hang yourself or cry in the corner

-good anime animation

To get back into what i was talking about.

Kyousuke you are a insane fucking dick!. Im pretty sure im not the only one who think that way.

To sum up real quick what i have been watching, the epic fuckery from episode 1-5 i will keep it short and sweet.

SPOILERS AHEAD SO IF YOU HAVEN’T EVEN SEEN LITTLE BUSTERS REFRAIN YET WATCH IT! IF THERE IS A EPISODE YOU MISSED WATCH IT BECAUSE HEY THIS IS A SPOILER.

*Kurugaya get bullied but ends up pwding them  and runs away and hidding in the music room with Riki before Riki black out

*Kurugaya traps Riki in a “Endless 8” type of scenerio because he trap in  June 20th for a couple of days at first he thought it was because he forgot about Kyousuke but it was Kurugaya made a wish to relieve that specific date forever and then dissapares but before she goes she tell RIKI TO PROTECT RIN!

*Haruka, Kud and Nishizono all dissapears. No reason was given. They are fucking GONE!

* Rin and Riki are now a couple.

*Rin is chosen  by the Student exchange program to go to the other school  at first Riki was against her going but through Kyousuke fucking persuasion he convince Riki to let rin go

*Rin Goes to the other school and Riki Suddenly had a fucking realization that kyousuke was sending the letters via Cat  and behind everything thus far and so he follows the cat that leads him Kyousuke and Confronts him.

Now in episode 6

Being left alone after Kyousuke ran off to god knows where riki is thinking about the person who he looked up to Kyousuke and how he never knew him at all.  The next day seeing how he really can’t trust masato he went to Kengo and tell him what he found out about Kyousuke hoping he will believe him which he does. Why i guess even he had less faith in him. Rin goes away to the other school and there she is slowly breaking down.

Riki confronts Kyousuke again about Rin and Kyousuke tell Riki that she comes back on weekends so hold out till then. Basically “quit your bitching she comes back on weekends”. when she comes back she is a mental wrech to the point she doesn’t even speak much.  This upset riki to the point he ask Kengo what to do. His advice “fight him”. So he and Kengo(because Riki is a pussy) Challenge kyousuke and Masato to a game a baseball…in the fucking rain.

They Riki and Kengo lose. Rin has to return back to the other school despite her clear and obvious signs of depression  This pushes Riki to the point of desperation and He wakes Rin and ask her to run away to run with him and they run away from the school. They take shelter in some abandon house but are later found out by the cops and Rin is token away from Riki once again.

Kengo tries to punch Kyousuke after he uses a cheep trick.

You lose Riki

This episode was filled with sadness all around but it did answered question that i had left over from episode 5. I thought Kyousuke was a ghost but apparently not.  It seem that KEY does plan to make this bigger than the original little buster. I just have a few more question that i need answers too.

-what the fuck happen to the girls who dissapered?

-What going to happen to Rin

-is kyousuke a god or something?

Idk what do you guys think about this episode?
