Bakemonogatari: The story centers on Koyomi Araragi, a third year high school student who has recently survived a vampire attack, and finds himself mixed up with all kinds of apparitions: gods, ghosts, myths, and spirits.

My thoughts: Excellent show, though it is probably an acquired taste. It has that unique animation style that Shaft is particularly commended (and ridiculed) for; it relies heavily on symbolism, fish-eye shots, etc to create a surreal feeling while watching the show. The major characters vary in successful execution, but Hitagi in particular possesses a lot of presence. She's a unique brand of tsundere: cunning, sarcastic, and refined when she needs to be. Plot follows a monster-of-the-week style that shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or CSI are known for.

The only animes I've seen are Sailor Moon, Inuyasha, and Dragonball Z. I love the style though. Rewatching Sailor Moon while waiting for the re-release later this year. I have the Sailor Moon mangas and want the Death Note mangas. I would be open to any recommendations.

Some anime pictures I've drawn:

^Wow w00t.gif Those are absolutely stunning. I can never draw that well, but you definitely have talent happy.gif

I also watched all of Sailor Moon, Inuyasha, and Dragonball Z. We can discuss that sometime if you want.

Claymore has actually finished its run sad.gif There may be a second anime adaptation when the manga is close to completion, which most likely will not happen anytime soon.

I recommend reading the manga, if you're up to it. There are some noticeable differences, especially because the anime had to form some sort of conclusion before its completion date flowers.gif

Growing up I watched the English dub of Sailor Moon and right now I'm watching the Japanese sub. You can definitely tell they made a lot of changes, especially in the later seasons. Won't be going back to English dubs for anything.

Agreed. Not that there's anything particularly wrong with dubbing.
