For the first discussion regarding Karen I want to raise the topic of the relationship between her and Koyomi.

Is it going to go anywhere?

Koyomi DEFINITELY sees her in a sexual way. I'm not fooling here, he makes it VERY clear.

Karen seems to be noticing his advances as well and goes along with him but confused at the same time.

These two perverts are definitely siblings.

At first, I thought Karen Chan is just a tomboyish, tsundere (?) little sister.... but right after "that episode".... She's but a desperate little )perverted) sister... and I love her now...

Join the party!!

NoemiChan 2012-02-28 08:00

The tight hug, the leg lock, the toothbrush (huh?)..and the tango...

I smell doujinshis being made already...

Clarste 2012-02-28 08:14

Karen's the female version of Koyomi. Heroic, self-sacrificing, and perverted. No surprises there.

I think it's vaguely interesting that we see them become sexually attracted to each other though, sort of by accident. They clearly weren't before the toothbrush incident.

He wasn't for her but she was sorta for him.
Spoiler for things not yet shown in the anime:

The voice acting fron Eri Kitamura for her is glorious. Her personality makes her much more notable than her sister, though is this why she gets the bulk of this season? We shall see...

Richocet 2012-02-28 14:38

After watching "that" episode I really am questioning the universe. All it took was a toothbrush to set them free unto the uncharted and forbidden lands??

Tempest35 2012-02-28 15:33

It's that Oral-B magic...:heh:

And wasn't it stated earlier that both sisters got bfs that were similar to Koyomi in order to get him jealous...? Dunno if that happened before or after this since I haven't followed the novel trans.

So Karen falling for her big brother has been pretty gradual if the time factor means anything - it all just came to a head now and only now is Koyomi regarding Karen as being a young woman.

Still, that has to suck as far as Nadeko is concerned...:heh: This would be a gamebreaker blow to her self-esstem if she knew that Koyomi's own blood sister has a better chance of landing him than she does...:heh::heh::heh:

blakstealth 2012-02-28 16:36

Gawd, she's so adorable. I can't believe how tall she is; she almost towers Araragi.

blakstealth 2012-02-28 18:54

Alter the height for one moment? Naw, that would be really dumb. Throughout Nise, every time Karen and Araragi would be in the same scene, their heights were always either the same or Karen would be slightly taller.

zarqu 2012-02-28 19:13

Karen's height in Nise 01.
Spoiler for Height difference:

Koyomi is one small pervert. I can already imagine the S/M relationship the two would have if Koyomi didn't have his vampire powers. :heh:

Ep8 is like heaven for Karen's fans. I means the toothbrush screen got everyone attention. But then we also have:
  • embarrassed Karen when she showed off in skirt the first time
  • the screen when she said her onii-chan is hotter than fire and she's in love
  • the way when she jump in and squeeze her body against Koyomi with such joyful outburst
  • she bite her tongue when 1st requested to be introduced to Kanbaru
  • her cheerful smile when was stepped on and wish to lick her brother's toes
  • her aerobic landing and that proud face
  • doing a hand-stand, and try to keep her skirt up to cover her panties
  • keep divert her eyes away when she thought Koyomi is looking at her

Too many good screens which was overshadowed by toothbrush...

Somehow it seems she loved him all along, but with mixing emotions as the siblings are fairly close even without romantic feelings. The kiss in her arc somehow ignited it up, and maybe she just want more of Koyomi's affection...

Tempest35 2012-02-28 22:24

As fun/awesome it would be to see Karen and Kanbaru gangbanging up on Koyomi, I don't think we all are ready for that awesomeness yet...:heh: Karen already acts like a mini-Kanbaru...she doesn't need to learn more pervertedness. :heh:

No need for her learn since Koyomi is the one who's taking the initiative. It's actually quite funny since everyone in the series knows that the Araragi children are all sis/brocons. I wonder if their parents know.....

risingstar3110 2012-02-28 22:32

Just like Hitagi x Hanakawa, i don't think we are ready for Kanbaru x Karen yet :heh:

Joking aside, i actually think Kanbaru wouldact much more mature in the face of an younger admirer. I means she went wild a bit over Araragi to purposely show her perverseness. But she has a whole fanclub after her, so i guess she behave quite well in the face of public... And she's acting quite innocent and cool when comes contact to cute girl ( Shinobu, Sengoku...).

Would it be nicer if their parents are secretly shipping their own children?:uhoh:

Isn't Karen taller than Kanbaru, though? :heh::uhoh: Since I remember her being slightly shorter than Araragi or I am mistaken?
