I'm a sucker for Harem

Dont forget that bake is a reverse Harem.

Hitagi is the hardest to get so he gets her first.

Tsubasa would've jumped into his bed so he 'gets' her last.

That doesn't make much sense given that harem implies nothing about order.

For Zetsubo who "don't understand spoiling" and for anyone with similar problem: anything that you are giving away based on your knowledge on the source material that has yet to be covered in the anime counterpart is a spoiler. Can't get much clearer than that...............

While it wasn't much of a spoiler considering this is one of those stories that I can follow, I'm still annoyed by having to read it.

Gotta say, that I found cat-eared-still-sane Hanekawa to be quite charming. Perfect 'Wanna take home' material....


or so Rena would say.

I honestly don't think Tsubasa would just jump into bed with him. The entire reason Koyomi didn't even go after her was because he was sure he would have gotten rejected. If she was really that easy then it would be obvious and she would be his girlfriend long before he meets up with Hitagi.

Actually, the main reason he didn't go after her was because he felt that he owed her big time almost immediately after they met so she never had the opportunity to seduce him.

LOL.... wrong on so many counts.

Koyomi had no fear of rejection.

He has only his beliefe in repaying his life debt to her.

If he been able to repay that that debt before he met Hitagi, then they would prossibly get together as a couple.

The debt is the reason he is the vice president, the debt is the reason he does whatever she asked and works late after school with her keeping her company. Because he feels he owes her.

In his mind he owes her big time. Sadly it is the main block infront of them as a couple.

However, one more thing to bear in mind... Hitagi is actually more Koyomis type of girl.

Notice also that Hitagi had a debt repayment issue with Koyomi but she quickly got over that when she realised that it would hinder her progress with him romantically.

No.....i don't think you're right on that one. When Hitagi said she wanted to repay him it was only a lie so that Koyomi would confess to her. That being said, Koyomi didn't like her romantically until after she confess to him herself.

I'm pretty sure that if Tsubasa confessed to him before Hitagi did, he would have definitely went out with her instead. It's just as what Hitagi said, it was 1-99 record with her and Tsubsa with the one win on her confessing faster.

hmmmm....

Yeah... I see my error.

I am currently under alot of stress as I am being audited by the Tax department.

Even though I have paid my taxes and they are up to date.

Their system stilll hasn't managed to record my payments and is now threatening leagal action.

So I guess I had my wires mixed.

I guess that happens when your government is threatening you with jail or whatever.

Eh, I like Hanekawa Tsubasa. She has cat ears and doesn't afraid of anything.

Though I don't quite get her hesitance in pursuing the feelings she has for Koyomi. To me, it seems as if she wants to get inside Araragi's pants but is oddly reluctant to pursue that desire. During the whole bicycle scene in episode 13, she was just exuding subtle hints of disappointment and jealousy (?) at the fact that Araragi was so popular with the women. I wonder if there's an underlying reason for why she is reluctanct, or if it's just simply the fact that she doesn't have feelings for him and that I'm mistaken.

Hanekawa does want Koyomi, but was taking her time.

Like Hitagi she too wanted to get him to confess to her.

It is only natural for a woman to preffer the man to confess to her is it not ?

So she took her time.

Because Araragi was originall anit-social and did not have any friends but her, she took it for granted that she had all the time in the world to make him fall for her.

So she paced herself, spending delightful evenings at school with him.

The thing is, she did not expect Hitagi to move in so swiftly and take him right from under her nose.

Infact, Hitagi sensed Hanekawas intention and stepped up her pace rapidly changing tactics as the need arose to get Koyomi fascinated with her... when the coy strategy and suggestions did not work Hitagi had enough of that and simply.. confessed herself.

This was something Hanekawa, being the straight laced good girl type, would not do.

The fact is in certain situations it seems Hitagi is more flexible than Hanekawa.

I could see that, to a point.

It seemed to me that she friend zoned Koyomi for pretty much all the series, she didn't even seem too upset when he started dating Hitagi in earnest. But lately, especially the latest episode, makes me wonder if she isn't tired of being seen as his genius best friend/safe girl.

That, and the retinue of girls he's assembled is probably helping too...

Tsubasa did not "friend zone" Koyomi.

Instead she took things for granted and waited for him to confess.

However, Hanekawa has been building up stress her whole life and Koyomi's company helps her to forget that stress at home and school and she feels at ease around him.

So she gets him to become her vice president so she can keep him with her often. She was in no rush to seduce him.

However she transformed into the cat when she did not see Koyomi for a while to relieve her stress. the first time was during golden week.

Ever since Koyomi has been constantly with her and so she was once again comfortable.

When Hitagi becomes Koyomi's girlfriend this stress Hanekawa out for four reasons.

1. Jealousy.

2. He starts paying more attention to Hitagi and even her friend Kanbaru. So Tsubasa's time spent with Koyomi has been reduced and her stress starts to slowly build up again. Especially while she is most lonely in the evenings wandering around the town or in the library, since she does not ever want to go home, In the evenings Koyomi is with Hitagi.

3. Koyomi starts asking Hanekawa advice on his new relationship with Hitagi. This adds more stress to Hanaekawa. Koyomi is cluless about how Hanekawa feels about him.

4. Hitagi succeded in getting Koyomi to think seriously about life and university and his future. Something that Hanekawa failed to do. His gradual change into a more reliable person was what Hanekawa wanted for Koyomi and she wanted to be the reason for that change. However Hitagi is the one that triggered that change and he is doing it to spend a future with Senjougaraha Hitagi. More stressssssssss
