I can't help but feel this is thread is going to turn into a discussion about Nise-Kaiki and post Nise-Kaiki.

Two very different angles of Kaiki is shown between the two.

Now you have me interested :uhoh:

Kaiki dā

itrytofight 2012-03-23 09:02

Is anyone else getting the sort of vibes that say he's a bad ass (like Koyomi)? It's like under the exterior douchiness there's something you do not want to mess with.

The way he carries himself seems to be obfiscating something far more dangerous, and in a sense I refuse to believe that he's simply a conman.

That said, I may be overanalyzing his character a tad too much; just trying to contribute.

Spoiler for Post-Nise Kaiki:

teja208 2012-03-23 12:47

Kaiki you are such an evil lolicon man. Oops sorry, I meant to say loli con man.

When Araragi met Kaiki the first time, he remarked that Kaiki resembles both Oshino and Guillotine Cutter. Then he encountered Kagenui latter and felt nothing. On what basis did he used to compare them?

Shikijin 2012-03-23 13:43

Maybe it was the air of authority. On this regard, Kagenui was the physical violence type, so she was quite different from them.

Shadow5YA 2012-03-23 21:28

Is it just me, or does Kaiki's character design make him look like a vampire?

monir 2012-03-24 01:38

He looks more like a zombie or a sleep deprived insomniac. His encounter with Koyomi in the Mr. Donut shop was hilarious. He is indeed an intriguing character.

Based on Nise novel content above, Kaiki flirted with Shinobu (a loli looking girl) and said Hitagi lost her value (no longer a fragile middle schooler). Yeah, he's a loli con man.

On more serious note, it seems to me that Kaiki does have a thing for Hitagi just not as much as money, and definitely not the other way around like some people may believe. Yes, he flirted with Shinobu a little, but thatís because he though that sheís just a naive foreign kid (or not), and just wanted to milk cash out of her photos (or not). As a professional con man itís not his nature to reveal his true feelings anyway, so when he said current Hitagi didnít interested him, he meant the opposite. Koyomi suspected this as well and for that reason he felt there is more to it in their relationship. That or he actually attrected to Hitagiís mother and Hitagi resembles her own mother in some manner.

HasuMasu 2012-03-24 07:10

Come to think of it, he does look like Oshino+Guillotinecutter. :eyespin:

Or maybe just vampire Gambit/Wolverine. :cool:

It's shown in Nise who he likes but I can tell you it's not who you think it is.

Is it Money? Hmm, nah probabily not her, but thanks anyway. It's interesting to know that he does have love interest aside from money that is.
