New Anime Series- Nisemonogatari

First Episode Review for: Nisemonogatari

Summary : A quite reasonable guy (for anime hero standards) who’s world seems to be filled with only strange women and who seems to be a vampire of some sort, who knows other supernatural creatures and sometimes gets kidnapped tries to live his life (look don’t ask me I’m as confused as you are) but does all this strangeness have something to do with his possessive sisters?

Animation : Washed out and highly detailed but strangely abstract, like a modern artist was put in charge of a world filled with normal people

Plot Potential: Sodded if I know at this stage, but there are references to other anime so I suspect it will be a parody of some sort

Characters: Strangely formal but hugely endearing characters, all highly philosophical but innocent with it

Music: A lot of adding music to speeches for dramatic emphasis, the opening theme is very catchy

Reminds me of: An even odder Mawaru-Penguindrum (but with less humor)

Overall: This series started with a total WTF!! moved to a section that contains lots of WTF, but thankfully only ended in confusion, I think I need to watch more
EDIT: episode 2 makes more sense but its still a potty series
