It probaby was real. Onimonogatari seems to happen around the same time as Neko White, so Hitagi and Tsubasa got to spend some quality time together.

I had a really important question in mind but I got distracted by something and I can't remember it now. Grr.

Does Kaiki really not believe in the supernatural? What kind of not believing is it if yes? Does he consider even stuff like Vampires to be just imagination or what?

I don't know about believing or not but he definitely knows about their existence. Had he not then he wouldn't have been able to tell Kagenui Tsukhi is a Kaii.

From what I watched in the anime, it seems he relies more on experience and factual information rather than just hear say and legends alone. Or maybe the reason is that the more he disbelieves the existance of these kaiis the less power they have over him (if the things Shinobu said about her experience in Japan are true then it may be for this reason).




On another note thanks to all who answered my question.

My feelings of waiting Tsukimonogatari is the same as of waiting for the next Durarara novel.

I feel sort of sorry for Hanekawa having to go along with Hitagi's Shenanigans though if she was for sure forced into it...

Spoiler for Kind of sorry... maybe sorry for her?:


Well, thanks again everyone.

He knows of Kaii and the people who believe in them like a rumor or gods. You can know that people believe in it, but you personally don't believe in it yourself.

There's also Kyubey from Madoka Magica, who has no emotions himself, but still knows how to manipulate people that do have emotions.

Is there confirmation in the Novels that this is how he really thinks? That's what I was asking. I already offered the idea you are suggesting otherwise.

The anime seems pretty faithful to the novel, with only some details excluded, not outright changed like some worse adaptations.

I thought Kaiki was pretty clear in the anime when he said that he didn't believe in Kaii, but he knows people that do.

Read every single page in this thread, oh my gosh I'm actually taking up Japanese to read the light novels. It'll take me half a decade but damn you I'm going to read them.
Already saving to buy them pre-emptively.

Also, I'm only speculating but if this is all correct, my assumption for the last three novels would be something like:

Not enough information is available to properly answer your question. There is a lot of stuff Nisio haven't answered yet so there really isn't a proper answer.
