Bakemonogatari (2009) started out as a surprise for many viewers. it was bold, different, so full of dialogues, yet so very addictive. its sequel: Nisemonogatari (2012) tried to follow its footstep but faltered slightly and failed to be as successful. Nekomonogatari (2012) however, brought back the spotlight and hit its target, it was just as good as its first sequel, and as satisfying.
like its previous sequels, this installment had little movement and many talking. yet whenever there was movement, it was so fluent it was mesmerizing to look at. the plot continued its supernatural events that continued to evolve and required solution from Araragi-kun. unfortunately the series only had 4 episodes, making it seemed more like a movie than series.
