Anime Like Bakemonogatari
Just last week I finished watching Bakemonogatari and it was amazing. Definitely on my top 5 of all time. I read some other reviews which focused heavily on the "romance" aspect, but that wasn't the main theme that drove it home for me. It was definitely the emphasis on character development and the sardonic verbal sparring that I enjoyed. And of course the character of Araragi as a bodhisattva that is willing to sacrifice himself for others even to the point of fighting karma itself (episode 10) was quite original. If anything, there wasn't a single character I didn't like. Also, the sexual innuendo was just enough to be nostalgic as opposed to being perverse and childish.
Please recommend similar anime!!!
What I think is somewhat similar and I've seen (and liked):
Lunar Legend Tsukihime
Kara no Kyoukai - The Garden of Sinners
Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou
Niea Under 7
Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (Only liked the first 6 ep)
currently watching XXXHOLiC because I've heard it's similar.
What was recommended to me to watch but disliked:
Arakawa Under the Bridge
What I'm about to watch that I've been told is similar:
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Spice and Wolf
ef - a tale of memories

May want to check out Toradora, only problem I think here is the main female is either hit or miss but this is a great romance none the less.
