4. Sword Art Online Series

10++. Monogatari Series
This anime has quite a confusing season/episode sequencing (Yes! I'm confused at first) so please refer to this hub for the correct sequence. And being produced by SHAFT, this anime contains weird animation and music, some users might like it and some may find it confusing. But it is really worth watching.
The story revolves around Koyomi Araragi, a high school student, who is an immortal half-human, half-vampire. One day, the "tsudere" Hitagi Senjougahara, falls down the stairs into Koyomi's arms. Despite threatened by her to keep away, Koyomi still offered his help and introduced her to Meme Oshino, a strange middle-aged man living in an abandoned cram school building, who loves to wear hawaiian shirts. As the series progresses, Koyomi finds himself involved with other girls, each afflicted by different "oddities".
