That Ougi girl indeed looks creepy as hell. And Oshino Ougi? That's suspicious. They've never mentioned Oshino had a relative before, and Araragi acts as if she had always been there... this definitely smells fishy.

Having a loli vampire is incredibly convenient. You can even time-travel! Where can I get one? I assume they ended up 11 years in the past because Araragi was thinking of Mayoi when he was crossing the gate. He will probably save her life and because of the butterfly effect the future will be totally messed up. I've always loved a good time travel story so I'm eagerly looking forward to what this arc has in store for us.

Pisses me off that's it's only 4 episodes but oh well. I've looked forward to this one the most so it's finally time. Ononoki's turquoise was so bright and lush, loved it.

This is the first time in the series that I feel like the narrative is slightly cliche. Nonchalantly time travelling just on a whim for what? It seems an overly casual way to find the setting. Well, I guess it's fine. Should be an interesting anyway.

There are seriously no bland characters in this show. Ougi is curious and Yotsugi is adorable.

Ougi looks she popped out of Katanagatari.
lol, Araragi worked hard all summer studying, but totally forgot about the summer homework.
Shinobu was funny when araragi bought up the possibility of a time paradox.

Curious what kind of play Mayoi was having with Araragi together in the bedroom. Since she's always outside, and we never seen her inside a building before.

It's true, I too dislike the time traveling plot cliche where efforts are in vain and/or lead to bigger mess where the whole episode/arc spent on correcting it.

I haven't read anything beyond Neko White so I'm completely blind here, but I don't feel like this is all there is to it. I believe it will turn into a much darker arc at some point base on split second flash forward scenes.

This arc is arguably the best if not the best since Kizu. It really is a shame there is only 4 episodes.

Considering that she is always molested outdoors, I dun really wanna think what happens indoor

Flash-shot of Araragi and Shinobu in Yukatas and them dual welding KokoroWatari.

I know, I'm sad Sometimes I don't know what shaft is thinking. If quality/important bits are cut from this, I might just cry.

Everything was just perfect across the board. I loved it all: the talk with Ougi with traffic lights, the talk with Ononoki with life and death and Shinobu's craziness with the time-travelling shit. Not gonna lie, I was so exhausted when I watched this last night. I wanted to stop like 5 minutes in since I couldn't muster up the mental capacity to retain it all, but my brother insisted that I finished it. So, I might have to watch it again. lol

I was hoping that Ougi would be a blonde like Oshino but I guess not.

I've to be honest here... I was getting impatient with the seemingly random conversation between Ougi (with her very creepy eyes) and Araragi... and then later between Ononoki and Araragi. After the time travel, I was ready to call this episode mediocre, and then the high schoolers tell where in time Araragi was brought to by the cutest of the loli.

And then everything, all the conversation up to that point just come together. And I was in awe. This was a very good episode. Poor, poor Mayoi! Can this tragedy be averted? Knowing how Araragi is, he will try his darndest best that's for sure regardless of the consequence.

Yeah. Though whatever he does... he'll still be on hand to stop the tiger.

And with eleven years to work with... won't he be tempted to stop other things? Hitagi's possession by a crab, Kanbaru's by a money, Nadeko's by a snake?

And the more ambiguous stuff. What would he do about Kissshot Acerola Orion Heart-Under-Blade? Or the complex, like Tsubasa's relationship with her parents?

Very good point there! I guess the fundamental difference between Mayoi and others would be the fact Mayoi is alive at that point in time and will be dead soon while others will be alive. So the urgency to save Mayoi from the inevitable should outweigh all other problem await him in the eventual future that involved the living. With Mayoi, the window of opportunity in time is now or never.

I was hoping too. It brings a question - who is depicted on this picture then?
It's from koyomimonogatari, Ougi's month.

I was thinking more along the lines of Araragi being the reason Mayoi is going to die. I think I read the words "Mayoi Vamp" in the beginning of the episode. Which could mean she gets turned in to a vampire or something else horrible is going to happen to Mayoi and killing her is the only way to free her from a horrible fate.
