Definitely loved the episode. All the shots were wonderful and I still love the colors, even though half the time I don't understand the scene jumping

The ending was really surprising.

Lol, Koyomi's expression: "Long time no see." at the end.

Her "condition" doesn't seem to limit her though. She can hit you or even get knocked unconscious, so if you didn't know you'd just assume she was a "normal" girl. As for their relationship, I find it more disturbing than touching. She's very knowing, in an unhealthy sort of way for a girl of her age. That said, I can't remember if we've been told how long she's been wandering around, so she could be older than she looks.

Ten years. She's actually older than Koyomi is, I believe.

The blue bird of happiness concept is not exclusive to Japanese culture. Many cultures around the world have this mythology. In Europe, for instance, the blue bird of happiness shows up in literature at least as early as the late 1600s. (Source)

Yeah, Russian rock band 'Mashina Vremenyj' (Time Machine) for example has a song called 'Blue Bird' where they sing

"We are the hunters after the happiness
But the blue bird is afraid of our selfishness
Too many were chasing-silly after her
And it does not trust human hands anymore

For a moment You think you have it
But then it lifts up
Waving with it's sky-blue wings
For a goodbye"

The blue-bird/happiness image is quite commonly used in many countries, not only in Japan.

From gg sub, what/who is Hachibei?

Araragi mentioned this at 00:23, after Hachikuji said she stuttered.

It's probably a Japanese pop culture reference, but Google isn't being very helpful, and unfortunately there don't seem to be any translator's notes on Mandoric's blog... I assume whoever they are, they have trouble saying names.

That just made me think of something... When we say someone is 20 years old we don't just mean they've been around for 20 years but we also assume the life experiences and emotional maturity normal to that age.

Hachikuji certainly has not had any of the normal adolescent and young adult life experiences of a true 20 year old. She acts in a way consistent with the emotional maturity of a grade schooler. Moreover I don't think we can even assume that she's had 10 years worth of memories as a lost snail spirit. The way Hachikuji could not articulate her dilemma to Araragi-kun, and the way Senjougahara-san had no memories of her mother both suggest that in the world of Bakemonogatari the minds of spirits and their victims are altered, constrained, and distorted just as much as the bodies and physical space.

I wonder how much of Araragi's psychological ability to absorb 'damage' is actually a product of his lingering vampiric regenerative ability.

Haha true, Hachikuji is so my favourite character on this show xD

I think it's because Sururuga can't see her but I also kept thinking that it was because she could see her... But Idk..

Wasn't something about ghosts not being able to assimilate new information or something to that affect mentioned near the end of episode five?
