Great thanks, it resolves everything. You helped us alot.
You even explained about why kanji are written in reverse order (that question I have in my mind while reading all this).

In fact, it seems that writing from left to right (yokogaki) is a relatively recent custom, we are talking about post WWII. Before that characters were written mainly vertically and then right to left.

This. With so many changes to the character's mentalities and circumstances, there should be more things shaken up. Even with the what should be earth-shattering moments you described, it seemed to be brought about so matter of factly. Does

I thought that when she returned to Japan she ended up in that very city were Ararargi and Co. lives and there was a short amount of time between her arrival and night when she meet Suicide-kun. Is it wrong and she traveled around the world after her return from Antarctica?

The first time she visited Japan was 400 years in the past and she didn't stay there, so of course she travelled around the world.

I think the last book has some potential. Every Monogatari book resembles the jo-ha-kyuu writing style. So I would assume that he's going to end the entire series similar. A rapid revelation, action or any turn of events at the end is featured in a lot of other Nisio stories.

If nothing else, we still need an explanation about Ougi in Hana.

While still hopeful for the last book, I admit I am not as hyped as I once was.

Can anyone tell me how should approach this series? considering what is said and what is actually done on screen, it is somewhat easy to misinterpret the series. There also appears to be the wrong way to interpret this series. Is there a right to interpret this series?

-there gonna be a lot of Japanese references that westerners won't get
-there is gonna be a lot of dialog between characters when nothing is happening
-pseudo-incest and loli molestation abound

Basically approach this series with an open mind. Its not for beginner anime/manga watchers.

It just seems as though that there is only one way to interpret this series as any interpretation would be 'wrong'. The characters seems to say things but it isn't matched by the action in the story.

I believe Nisio did it right. He kept the right proportions of action and dialogue. I read these novels for dialogues, psychological portraits of characters, as well as for humor. Sometimes action is needed and the author put it in the right quantities. Because there is actually a reason for that is quite simple. These books are written in the first person, on behalf of the characters. It is their mind we look into. Ofcourse there will be not that much of action, if our narrator is focused on reflection of personalities of characters and on retelling of events. And this is also stylistic device to make better immersion with story. And on my opinion, sterile environment that we have seen in anime, when there is almost no background characters, makes it deeper.
And action just might spoil it like a fly in the ointment.
So if you don't like dialogs and you prefer action - this book and anime is just not for you.

Hmmmm I guess. Still, it just seems as though that the series can only be interpreted one way and other interpretation is somehow wrong. It seems that could take things at face value but at same time I cannot trust anything the characters say (?). It also seems to mock conventional wisdom as the kids make more problems than they actually solve.
