Hot damn, Araragi's mom is sexy, on side note, Gaen's got the same grin as Kanbaru
when Hanekawa was putting those cards up, the sub said: "Envy. Oh that's right." Sounded to me "Shit (engrish). Oh that's right." and it fit so well.

Dat potential in Gaen. She is already pretty cool and I don't say the much based off JUST first appearances.

Was cool to see Episode in the anime. If only they would of made Kizu before this season

Was another solid episode, Gaen was pretty awesome

So Koyomi's going out with Hitagi so others won't call him a lolicon/siscon.

Similarly, both Karen and Tsukihi get themselves a boyfriend and openly admit that their boyfriends are just like their o/niichan so we shouldn't called them brocons right?

Finally! Gaen appears I tried so hard to get unspoiled about her character, that her appearance was a salvation

Now back to the episode, that reunion with Episode was so awesome, it's really a shame not having Kizu- animated to discuss the details, because Tsubasa's body language was simply a work of art

It's also interesting how everyone is so jealous of Tsubasa in this arc... nah, scratch that! actually it makes now so much sense why she immediately fell in love with Koyomi, back in Kizu-

Generally, after this episode, I think that the writer decided to end the story of his main heroine with this arc, which is sad (for me), but I can not wait to see how the situation will resolve, so she can finally move on.

Wasn't a big fan of Hanekawa, but with each arc of her, growing more and more fond of her.

Especially the last 3rd of this episode.

Such a delicious show - I catch all the quick screen flashes of text too. I was never one to dislike Hanekawa from the previous series but I have come to like her more now. Not saying she was bad before - she just needed a spotlight. Sometimes characters don't connect the dots and need the perspective of others to illuminate the path. The Tiger is going to be a problem. I look forward to seeing how she solves the riddle.

Missing context from Kizumonogatari, as well as the anime cashing on the Hitagi fandom, has created several issues with the storytelling

Oh yeah....they kept what happened in Kizu VERY vague.

Freud saw this coming. You're so predictable, Araragi-san.

edit: Similar at least when it comes to appearance and manner of speech (mamaragi has a certain assertiveness to her tone). Of course it's all superficial for now.

I think so also, maybe that is one of the reason he choose to respond positively to Senjougahara in Bakemonogatari. It would not be strange at all if he has some kind of mother complex, after all the Anime/LN has lots of "...... complex"* in it.



*...... add what you want.

The Araragi family is just one giant incest orgy.

Glad to know I'm not alone in noticing this. Not surprising though, it makes perfect sense for a guy to be naturally drawn to someone who reminds him of his mother (and a girl to someone who reminds her of her father). And, with this in mind, it really puts Hanekawa's chances in perspective doesn't it? No matter how much she wishes for Araragi to be with her (and the other way around) psychology dictates that that will never happen and Senjogahara is the woman for Araragi.

Still, when Tsubasa was 'marking' Koyomi's bed, I still feel sympathy that their love will never bare fruit (;_; ). It just felt so....sad; heartbreaking even. It just feels like she needs Koyomi more than Hitagi.

Well, Hitagi just needed someone to "save", Koyomi was just convenient. The details are in the last parts of Karen Bee (Nise- 1st arc).

On the other hand, Tsubasa fell in love with Koyomi, but got friendzoned and/or scared him.

Yup that was sad for Hanekawa , this is the life , at least the show won't end up in harem & will get a proper romance.

To properly mark Araragi's bed, shouldn't Hanekawa do it 100% nude?

There has got to be a doujin of this.

Man. Hitagi x Araragi pair seems so obvious to me that I wish Tsubasa would just let it go and go on that journey she always speaks about. To find herself or something.

Then again, I might be underestimating romantic love.
