Cutting is one thing, but dying her hair as well?

Of course she is making a big mistake, we all know the one she should look out for is the final boss, Nadeko!
Nah... The problem isn't the final boss, it's the true love: Hachikuji!

Personally i "hate" Tsubasa...

It's a long time that I really don't like chilhood friend's type characters in anime, and meganekko too..

For me Hitagi is light-years ahead Tsubasa...

Same here. I don't like her at all. Hitagi is so much better and Shinobu too of course.

Hanekawa was never a childhood friend, though. Araragi met her just some months ago, as narrated in Kizumonogatari. And she is not even a meganekko anymore

I like Tsubasa. Amittedly because she is so sharp, being with her would get kinda annoying sometimes (I know I am not the only one who thinks this).

Normally I don't like it when the ladies cut their hair, but Tsubasa's works here.

Hehe, Shinobu's a little vamp isn't she.........(DERP).......................too bad she looks like she's 8.

Nice little info dump of a ep although this reaffirmed how lucky I am that I didn't have younger sisters growing up. (If they get too big for their britches you can't knock some sense into them like you would your younger brothers).

Holy shit, this show is sick.

My head almost exploded when Shinobu finally came out and talked for once. She's such a badass motherfucker!

I don't think I've ever had a favorite character in Bakemonogatari (Senjougahara acting all cute and vulnerable doesn't count!), but with the introduction of Kaiki last episode and with Shinobu finally running her mouth this episode, I'm willing to reconsider my choices.

But seriously, Shinobu seems to interest me most, personality-wise. This is partially due to her ambiguously helpful, yet condescending, attitude towards Araragi, as well as the witty banter (as with everyone else) between them. I don't know what role she played in Kizumonogatari, but I'm getting a few hints.

Kaiki, on the other hand, is likely the major villain. The black suit, the depressing lines, and that ominous gaze... he's definitely shaping up into something awesome.

With episode 3 and 4 Nisemonogatari finally found its stride for the rest of the season. Let's hope they don't stumble up the nice pace they've found now.

Also, anyone else getting spice and wolf vibes from shinobu? The way she talks and acts reminds me alot of Horo

It was mentioned that she thought it was "out of fashion". I can only infer that that kind of helmet was once fashionable. It could of course be that she didn't care what she wore while in her... flegmatic state.

Probably another masked reference.

But Shinobu have a lot less "dere" moments than Horo.

Should I rant about the first half (the TV episodes) of Tsubasa's arc that made everyone fall in love with Hitagi

That's no reference. This kind of personality and speech style aren't anything new. The only point is that it is an archtype that doesn't stand out as much as other "dere" type.

probably you have reason, but we must remember that we are talking about nisio.

And nobody can tell to us, for sure, that there isn't reference...

Regarding the bolded, it actually was in the episode, albeit in obscure SHAFT style.

Araragi's "I'll kill you" thought actually showed as text across his eyes, and the subs did catch that. It was only for a brief moment though.

oh mai gah, what a pleasant surprise! Shinobu actually talked, and quite an amount too. I would've never expected her to have such a playful personality lol. I was so surprised that I forgot to delight in her naked loli body for a moment. SHAFT must have a thing for loli blond vampires XD. I also loved Shinobu's ka ka laugh.

Thumbs up to Hanekawa's new look. And, now we know why Senjougahara was so scared of Hanekawa. Fearsome indeed.
