(Look for Bakemonogatari reviews tounderstand the show better. Not a full review.)
This is just a quick recap of the first 5 episodes with all the charm of the show. it is great for people who want to skip the first the arcs of the series (or just get the snail arc done in 12 mins and not 3 episodes), but it may draw you in to rewatch those episodes. leaves out a lot of the good parts.
