Started Bakemonogatari. Hitagi is awesome. That is all.

The show itself isn't bad either

I fell in lover with her by episode 2 then fell in love with her 10x over again by episode 12.

Also, surprised you must started watching it. If it wasn't for MacrossF it'd be It's my top anime of 2009.

I fell in lover with her by episode 2
I fell in love with her the moment she shoved that stapler and ruler or whatever that was into Araragi's mouth.

Also, currently on episode 2 myself. She just keeps getting better and better

It will continue that way up until the ending, at which point you will yell and be upset that there isn't any more.

I did this too, to such an extent that Calpis and I were discussing it and:

me: Can't wait for the last couple episodes to be posted
calpis: which one did you see last?
me: the one with the [sperlers]
calpis: That was the final episode, dude
me: ...

I so didn't want it to end that my subconscious tricked me into thinking it hadn't ended. Fucking amazing show.

In all honesty, I haven't watched 14 and 15. I have them, I'm just waiting for the right mood to be alone with Hitagi for a while.

Also to be clear, 12 is the end of the TV run and 13-15 are web/dvd releases.

I haven't either, for the same reason. But I remember thinking the TV run hadn't ended yet, which it totally had. It was very upsetting.

The show is 96% exposition, 3% action, 1% black screens. It's a Tarantino-esque take on anime.

On the third, this whole park scene is charming.

 That seems familiar. Maybe I made it to episode 3.

 I have no problem with dialog heavy shows, but something about that show just... ugh. It's too bad too, because all I hear about it are good things.

I remember giving this warning to Topher when he was watching it so I'll give it to you too. You will NOT be ready for what happens at the beginning of episode 5.

Ep 12 made up for all the things that might have been considered bad about the series. Like if you docked off points for everything it did bad, it'd be a hypothetical -30points, then ep 12 happens and its +10,000points.
