    I hope you do blog it. It seems like everyone and then some is blogging kill la kill and monogatari but I can’t find anyone blogging this or hunterxhunter. Definitely not impressed with the “show the end in the beginning” story telling but maybe they figure people who read the manga are going to watch it anyway, so they only really are concerned about keeping the fans from the 1st season who are just checking it out for now. Thus far, at least this hasn’t seemed to have hurt Monogatari as they’re doing this for the Nadeko Medusa arc.

      Yeah, if nothing else I’d like to see some fights animated, as well as see characters move about and speak etc. I think some manga readers have actually decided to take the anime as a form of extra fanservice for the purposes of complementing the series xD

      Monogatari is mainly driven by character interaction, so it’s strong enough to hold itself up even if plot twists are revealed. It’s pretty unique in its story execution. With a shounen like Magi, where battle scenes and power ups are important, it felt sort of cheap to suddenly show a bunch of factions in the middle of warfare when we haven’t been introduced to them yet, as well revealing that Aladdin has become insanely powerful.
