Come for the anime babes, stay for the deep and engaging story. Bakemonogatari is a great anime, though it's kinda hard to talk about with friends for various reasons lol. It's well known for oversexualizing the female characters, regardless of their age (yikes). But this is counterbalanced by the writers empowering them with profound intelligence and awareness. Unlike most anime of it's genre, the main character is actually very interesting and developed. Araragi finds himself amongst mostly girls with dramatic and supernatural problems. Naturally, befriending all of them causes drama to develop.
It's interesting to watch it unfold, but perhaps the pacing can be too slow at times. This adds great effect and suspense, but sometimes the pandering doesn't add up to much regarding the plot.
This is the anime for you if you love fast cut animation, perversion, lots of dialogue, decent action and, above all, fascinating and complex characters.
