Who told you that? I don't think the actual number of episodes is known, but there's no reason for this arc to be so much shorter than the previous ones. It will be 4 episodes long at least.

To me, it seems like they were foreshadowing Nadeko Meduaa with Renai Circulations lyrics.

Highly unlikely. The first season came before the second series of novels.

nah they just realized how popular Renai Circulation was and realized how opposite Nadeko Snake was to Nadeko Medusa. Thus, the opening song.

Thanks. I would have liked 5 like NekoShiro, but I'll take what I can get.

And it seems like Kana Hanazawa is the reason this arc was even written.

Quote:
Nisio Isin: I have a question that I want to ask as well. In the future, what sort of characters does Hanazawa-san wish to tackle?
Hanazawa: I wish to take on the role of those characters with a very bad personality. As I had not acted for a really evil character before, I wish to challenge that at least once.
Nisio Isin: I understand. Then in the future, the <Bakemonogatari> series will have an evil girl added to it, so please be her voice actress as well. Or, I can write Nadeko as an evil girl - such a plot isn't too bad either.
Hanazawa: Which means to say that she will become 'Dark Nadeko'. *laughs* Please do that.

Finally got around to listening to the OP with some lyrics attached to it... Now I have the feeling I might still end up loving Nadeko as a character.

Literally Delusion Express, but I've seen people translating it as Express of Fancy which I guess adds a neat angle.

lol. it looks like this nadeko arc is a ripoff of black hanekawa just because hanakana wanted to voice a "dark" character.

I assume you meant that Hanazawa (Nadeko's VA, instead of Hanekawa) wanting to voice a dark character.

I seriously doubt that this is the case. The novel predated the anime announcement, but even if this is the case, Nadeko snapping makes all the sense in the world. Also her reasons are very different from Tsubasa's and in addition she seemed to focus on Koyomi, while Black Hanekawa avoided him.

Agian, based only on this episode (and doujinshi, which might not follow loyally the novel storyline), Nadeko and Tsubasa have completely different motives, behavior, reasoning and approach.

Nah.
The arc is written after Nisio taking in the consideration of HanaKana's wish.
She told him that she wanted to do a dark character in an interview and then Nisio made Nadeko as the snake god.

Maybe her wish just happens to overlap with what he would have written anyway. Even before the original anime started and only up till nise was written, the fandom had been calling nadeko the final boss due to her aggressive ways in nise.

It was the only way to go for her anyways, she murdered like twenty poisonous snakes without batting an eye. Bitch is crazy. And I love that.

Though Nadeko is merely the final boss for the second season...

I meant HanaKana, at least that's what I think people are calling her.

Finally got around to watching this episode..... I've always thought Nadeko's killing of the snake was creepy. I no longer remember the exact detail as to why she thought killing the snake would lift the curse, but it still takes some serious balls to cut a snake to pieces and then pin those pieces to a tree. I distinctly remember the part where she was holding down the snake by its head while it is still moving and then trying to chop it with the chisel before Koyomi interrupted.

This girl is no pushover and much more vicious even though she comes across as docile and gentle.

And what's the deal with that creepy girl? Was she hypnotizing Nadeko with subliminal messages? The entire point of that conversation was to hammer home to Nadeko that she isn't exactly a victim even though she might be playing as one in the present. Looking forward to the next episode.

Btw, I couldn't stop laughing at the amount of blood Koyomi's heart was ejecting. It was like a Geyser.

So Nadeko gets 1200 yen per month as allowance and goes to Middle School. Wtf does the parents expect the kid to use $12 per month on? That's not even enough for Netflix...
