Araragi Koyomi is a third year high school student who is almost human again after having briefly become a vampire. One day, a classmate named Senjougahara Hitagi, who infamously never talks to anyone, falls down the stairs into Koyomi's arms. He discovers that Hitagi weighs next to nothing, in defiance of physics and common sense alike. Despite being threatened by her, Koyomi offers her help, and introduces her to Oshino Meme, a middle-aged homeless man who helped him stop being a vampire.

Have to say that there really is lots and lots of fanservice in this anime. I never knew about it until this show -- but I am fairly new to anime.
I liked the Monogatari Second Season, Nekomonogatari Kuro and the Hanamonogatari series most!
Right now I'm watching Tsukimonogatari (seen 2 out of 4), but I don't think I'll like it as much.

For me, Monogatari Second Season (aka Season 3) has done a great job of rescuing the series and removing the bad taste left by Nisemonogatari (Not everyone hates it, but most would admit it is the weakest material by far when compared to the rest).

I liked how the arcs shown were not done in chronological order and that we had different narrators for most of the arcs. Seeing events unfold from other characters' perspectives kept things interesting. Most of the arcs were very good, I wasn't as big a fan for Nadeko's arc but that has more to do with not really liking the character than what happened.

This second season has restored my faith in the series and I am really looking forward to SHAFT animating the remaining material now.

The Artwork of the whole series blows me away every time I watch it. As a graphic designer I's have to say that a massive amount of time was spent on some of the backgrounds and typography.
