The only really disruptive, pointless fanservice in nise is the toothbrush scene in episode 8.

I agree, all I meant was that most of nise being all about fanservice are lazy and overblown.

That's more distracting than full blown disruptive like the toothbrush scene. I'm not a deepfag or anything but nise is definitely more complicated than bake, though I would still put bake slightly above it.

I think I've written something along these lines somewhere before but here goes anyway. Nise has a lot more moral and ethical conflict than Bake. All of the conflict in Bake basically centers around inferiority complexes or other personal insecurities manifesting as supernatural phenomena whereas all of the conflict in Nise is about what constitutes a right to exist, and what defines authenticity (hurr durr title). Kagenui's speech at the end comes off the first time as petty stage setting and villainous posturing but it actually explains the depth of the idea of the supernatural in universe and what each of the specialist's strategies for dealing with the supernatural say about their morality.

So I don't think there's anything less going on, just more to distract you from it. Also Shinobu's bathtub monologue is cooler than any conversation or monologue in bake. That's just my opinion though.

in hindsight this seems a little defensive but I'm going to leave it here anyway

Monogatari is onanism in Powerpoint format. Because onanism is generally speaking pleasant pastime and offers variety of slightly differing thrills that share a common base I find watching various *monogataries appealing.

Still, in light of this I find idea of "pointless fanservice" in monogatari more or less quizzical. To boot episode 8 was only great episode in dirge that was Nisemonogatari anyway.

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

If those images are typical of what gets people worked up about Nise, then I have to say that some people are really easily offended (perhaps being European helps my perspective on this). Though I'm intrigued about what I'll find when I get to the toothbrush in a couple of weeks...

The song? It's all right. I don't really get the hate for it, though; Minmay could sing anything and make it sound good. If I had to make a list, I suppose I would put Hitler below Ai Oboete Imasuka but above My Boyfriend is a Pilot, which itself is above Shao Pai Long.

So to answer your question, yes.

I meant the guy. You know. Pacifist hippie dude. I thought he was kinda shitty.

I can't even remember his real name what the fuck

@Xard I've heard people use onanism (or just masturbation) to describe media before but I don't really know what it means.

Out of curiosity I watched the toothbrush scene...


:jawdrop: :jawdrop: :jawdrop: :jawdrop:


My god. That was....disturbing. I mean, that was absolutely fucking terrifying. I am not joking when I say that that made me shudder. It was beautifully crafted, and I'll be honest it was one of the most brilliantly horrific things I have ever watched.

Incestuous toothbrush rape. That has to be a new low.

I don't think I'm going to watch Monogatari.

Like, ever.

Back up through episode 6 of NGE. No ED goes as hard as Fry Me to the Moon. Maybe Shiki no Uta.

Incestuous toothbrushing is one of the things that brought me back into anime.
