Character Discussion - Kaiki

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to discuss all things Kaiki related.
To keep the discussion enjoyable for all Monogatari Series fans, please follow the guidelines below and stay on-topic!
Note: Please don't use this for the specifics (i.e. episode, chapter, game, etc. discussion) there are other threads for that stuff.
Thread Guidelines
  • No campaigning!
    No "hate" or "xyz must die" posts. Discuss why you do or don't like characters without whinging and whining or blatantly campaigning for your favourite.

  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter are always welcome, but harassing people will not be tolerated.

  • Discuss, don't chat.
    Please remember that AnimeSuki is a discussion forum, not a chat room, there is a difference. If you wish to chat, then please make use of our IRC channel.

  • Have fun, but post intelligently.
    It's great to have fun, but please try your best to add substance to what you post and make your thoughts interesting for the generation of fans that will follow after you’re long gone and on to watching some other series.

  • Use Spoiler tags!
    Spoilers are allowed, but they must be enclosed in spoiler tags clearly marked with a proper title. Failure to do this can result in a BAN.

    • Adding a Spoiler tag:
      Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms. Make sure that you include a title for the spoiler!

    • Please use the Report button if you see any spoilers:
      Click the button found to the left of the post, just under the poster's avatar. Using the Report button is anonymous and helps the Moderators to locate and deal with problems quickly.

    • Posting prohibited spoilers may result in a ban.
      Note: Reporting a post does not mean the poster will be banned instantly. The Moderators will use bans if warnings are repeatedly ignored.

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.

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.

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?

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

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

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.

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.

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

Or maybe just vampire Gambit/Wolverine.

Well, he was described as ominous. He really is shady

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

Must be Araragi-kun.

So Kaiki swings that way...should've known.

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.
