Perfect 10.

I've seen many things before, but this is quite possibly the most...unique episode of an anime I've ever seen. Dat toothbrush...those two siblings have ventured into some new phenomenon here. Hands down the most interesting use for a toothbrush I've ever seen.

I may not be into fanservice scenes but toothbrush service is a complete novelty fanservice. 12/10

Koyomi said toothbrush fetish was originally Kanbaru's idea. People should've give her more credit.

Ah, Eri Kitamura. She's always been my favorite seiyuu and this role just helps her keep that spot secured for me.

Wasn't feeling it at all tbh.

Unpopular opinion, but whatever.

It's the sort of fanservice that gets recommended by 9 out of 10 dentists.

I am scared to see all the 10/10s being given out here. We're in a golden age where fanservice and ero scenes net anything a 10. Call me cynical, but I always felt the fanservice in Bakemonogatari wasn't there for the same reasons as Nise's. Can't say I'm a big fan of its constant appearance, really.

For me, the best part of this episode was the new opening. THAT was marvelous.
I think it's just cause it's an anticipated scene and it's apparently uncut. Really not hard to predict a deluge of 10's considering this show doesn't really attract a very critical crowd for the most part. Haven't seen a thread like this in a while though to be honest, but just in general I never really pay attention to ratings that aren't by people I know don't just hand them out like they're business cards.

Anyway I saw it cause I was curious and being me and all that entails I obviously don't see what all the fuss is about. It's a fanservice scene in a show with more than a few of them, it's executed as a fanservice scene, and that's really all I have to will say about it. Maybe if I wasn't so used to modern anime being filled with weird and incestuous (is it fair to say sexually deviant or will that get me in trouble? ), but yeah not exactly leaping out of my seat and ready to praise the show for this.

Unlike most people who seem stunned speechless there's actually plenty I could say about this episode and that scene in particular and it didn't really make me go WTF anymore than anything else this franchise has thrown at me during the times I've tried to entertain it, but I don't feel like getting in trouble even though I probably already am so I'll say no more.

^but have you ever seen a fanservice scene like this one? that's the point.

No I haven't, but again it's still not something that's going to make me leap out of my seat and say, "You need to see this, this is brilliant" to any of my friends. I guess I just don't get that excited over fanservice from an evaluative standpoint. It's something that's there to be titalating, perhaps sexy and erotic and maybe leads to people typing with only one hand every now and then, but I don't really factor that sort of thing into evaluating the quality of a show or episode. It served it's purpose, but since this is primarily a comedy I'm evaluating it more on the front of how funny I find it and I guess the best I can say is that I got a laugh out of the episode and that was when Karen asked if Araragi was going to stick the toothbrush up her butt. It's one of those random out of nowhere lines that was a rare case of something in this franchise actually working for me.

Everything else just felt kind of obvious, lacking in subtlety and was really nothing I haven't seen done quite a few times in anime like this before. There's a word I would use here to describe the content of the episode, but again it'll probably get me in trouble so I'll refrain and just say that there was a lot of me shrugging and putting my forehead in my palm while muttering, "this just really isn't funny" while watching the episode.

Well, I can't imagine this episode changing anyone's opinion on anything. I thought it was chuckle-worthy, but it didn't blow my world or anything. Not really the high point of the series.

For the record, I thought the funniest part was how Tsukihi listed the fact that Karen was wearing her clothes as if it was one of their crimes against nature.

I think most people are 'enjoying' the novelty of the toothbrush for a situation which would otherwise be squick-tastic. Seeing Karen acting like a younger Kanbaru was kinda 'o.0' for the first half but then the toothbrush came out and my logic also left....

While this doesn't really do anything for the overall story other than inter character dynamic, it was definitely made to give everyone a 'WTH/WTF/0.0' moment, which it did, regardless whether one actually liked it or not.

If you really read or follow the thread here, you should know that not all people read the novel. So, many of them don't actually know or anticipate something like this. I'd say that they gave 10 simple because of WTFness and the very unique approach of new fetish.

To be honest I think we're probably both overthinking it and people just don't need much of a reason at all. We may never know the truth since as is common with these situations maybe 5 of the people are actual posters I've seen on this board before and....

Loved the new opening and bgm! But the toothbrush scene made me quite uncomfortable. I did laugh a little, sort of forced though... Maybe because I'm a girl? XD;; Then again incestuous hints in any anime has never been my thing.
