A Very Sincere Actual Legitimate Review of Bakemonogatari

What do I say about Bakemonogatari that hasn't been said already? What kind of description can I possibly give that would compel you to legitimately listen to this episode if you weren't already going to watch it to begin with because we were talking Monogatari? I don't know how to get you in the door but here's the thing: this is an actual legitimate review and (kinda) not all about how much we love this show. I mean, do we love this show? I guess that's why you would need to listen, right? I'm asking a lot of questions here. I guess I could kind of say this: Bakemonogatari is kinda sorta like anime Danny Phantom. I think that's a fairly original statement. There's a lot of big wrinkly brain talk in this one where we discuss all about the nature of good anime and god-tier waifus, we get a little too real about our home lives, and YOU THOUGHT THERE WOULD BE ONE LAST STATEMENT ON ABOUT BIG BRAIN TALK IN THIS ANIME PODCAST BUT IT WAS ACTUALLY ME, LEO DIO! That's a reference from the episode. I'm not going insane or using old memes. Well, I'm definitely not insane but I'm certainly not mentally well but this is the end of the podcast description so it's not like you're reading my cry for help and understanding anyways! I can say whatever I want to! I HAVE UNLIMITED POWER DOWN HERE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TEXT! And Obi-Wan Kenobi thought that those who had the higher ground were more powerful? The fool!
