On the contrary, she is highly perceptive about her surroundings and very intelligent. No, I believe the entire set up was carefully designed by Ms. Senjougahara. We can tell that it was intentional when she makes it clear her dad is one of the very few things she can offer. She also made sure her dad got to have a one-on-one talk with Araragi, hence the alone time for those two while Hitagi-san went to make preparation for star gazing. The main goal here was to have her dad's approval of the guy she was serious about. I guess now that it's out of the way, she will start naming the children.

As a watcher of Bakemonogatari more for the supernatural elements than romance, I have to be honest and say that this episode didn't really effect me as much as it apparently did all the rest of you. Felt slightly bored through it honestly.
Though to be fair, I'm not really a Senjougahara fan. (not really fond of her character type in general.)

That said, I admit that I did like the last scene. It was sweet.

Whoa.. talk about viewer satisfaction over 80% voted 10/10, dang.

And it was an awesome, awesome episode. I was wondering if Hanekawa would make an appearance, but this was about Koyomi & Hitagi. They also gave it a good ending for those who will be unable to see the streaming episodes (I don't know who doesn't have internet in Japan, but whatever).

Hitagi for the win. Whispering in his ear, god know what, and his ear turning red with his hair pointing and the speedometer maxing out, while rubbing his upper leg no less!


Oh, I watched gg's version and there were black bars on the top and bottom. Was the whole episode aired like that? I remember seeing scrolling text on the bottom half cut off. Does that mean the video was cut off the entire episode? I'm surprised they would make a mistake like that. And if this has been answered already, sorry, but I can't read 12 pages worth of posts.

The episode aired with black bars. So gg's encoder decided to cut the black bars, which most encoder would do.

Isn't the ending just the 2nd stanza of Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari? I'm confused, someone said it was a new song.

God I should have watched this episode a whole lot earlier. This was one of my favourites from the series. It's almost like the lack of Senjougahara the last few episodes was to charge up for this one. You had SenjougaharaxAraragi from start to finish.

I like how clearly she put things especially near the end. Giving everything that she has and being honest about the fears she has. Maybe Araragi was right that she is like an rpg hero going into a dark cave without a torch. This episode just reminded me why she was my favourite part of this show.

Hitagi's father was a pretty good guy. I wondered if he was deaf or something with how silent he was the whole time before she left the car. I think he is right that just being there when Hitagi needs him is enough. It's not really about how large the role he played in helping her just that he was there.

This episode is in cinema aspect ratio. Previous episode was 16:9 aspect ratio. All episodes were aired in 1080i.

This episode was fucking fantastic, absolutely perfect ending to the series (for now).

The two of them have to be the best couple I've seen in a series in years, shit.

Good Show

I liked the plot lines, the style, the artwork and the story. Very well done.

I guess we have 2 more web only EPs? Is this correct?

D:
The arc is 5 episode. Ep 12 is also part of it, and it was in the novel. The arc is probably the longest in the 2 volume books that the anime is doing. Shinobu might be part of it unless you are talking about the Koyomi Vampire arc, which is a prequel.

I doubt that other encoders will decide to cut the black bars like gg. The sponsor screen is not the same ratio but gg also cut it out (including the part of password in this episode) But you can say that who cares.

Don't forget: she also "trained" Koyomi to stop calling her by her family name!

Now what would it take to get him to drop the honorific?

Well yes, it was planned, but she did act oblivious to what that situation meant for Koyimi--and in a way that verifies the earlier text in the episode where he talked about her.

Hitagi-sama is like a perfect model for other anime characters. If you love someone, please say it! Don't try to be good and expect him/her to notice your feeling, dammit!

She will have to overcome the barrier of her trauma first if she wanna name the children for real.

Err, try to find someone else (older than them) name Hitagi. And put all of them in one place.
Then Araragi will have to call her Hitagi~chan.

This was by far the best episode. Full of Hitagi-ness. Good for a "last" episode. We'll see how the web episodes do.
