Welcome everyone! It's the last week of August. I have meaning to try Monogatari because of my friend, Supreme Marvel, recommended to me. Besides that one, I'm psyched to hear Watamote on dub. I'm interested in seeing how the dub fare with the sub. I seen the series on Crunchyroll. My siblings and I love the show.
I would love to hear your recommendations on these series. All comments are welcome. Thank you.

|Watamote - Complete Collection DVD or Blu-Ray|
At the tender age of 15, Kuroki Tomoko has already dated dozens and dozens of boys and she's easily the most popular girl around! The only problem is that absolutely none of that is real, and her perfect world exists only via dating games and romance shows. In fact, the sad truth is that she gets tongue tied just talking to people, and throughout middle school she's only had one actual friend. All of this makes Kuroki's entrance into the social pressure cooker of high school a new and special kind of hell.
While Kuroki desperately wants to be popular, she's actually worse off than she would be if she was completely clueless as to how to go about it. After all, the things that work in "otome" games rarely play out the same way in reality, especially when the self-appointed "leading lady" isn't the paragon she thinks she is. There's not much gain and plenty of pain ahead, but even if it happens again and again, there's always someone else to blame!

In the October issue of Kodansha's Afternoon magazine, there was an announcment from Riichi Ueshiba that Mysterious Girlfriend X will end on September 25.
For those who are new to Mysterious Girlfriend X, here is a summary written by our wiki editors in Anime Vice:
Akira Tsubaki was just living his normal school life until a strange girl named Mikoto Urabe transfers into his class. One day, without thinking, he tastes the drool left behind on her desk at school and becomes ill the next day. Urabe pays Tsubaki a visit at home, and using the same drool he tasted before, seemingly cures him. Urabe tells him that it was love sickness and that he has fallen for Urabe, and has become dependent on her drool. From then on, the two start to form a bond, discovering that their drool can transmit feelings and other things between them. Tsubaki soon finds himself with a very mysterious girlfriend.
