I agree to this. I think Koyomi only loves Hitagi and is already in a relationship with her so he isnt really interested in creating a harem but like you said, he is a pervert and just wants to do the other girls and that's about it

Well it's not like he seriously wants to "do" them. His perversions are just one of the gags in the series. He likes to banter and each of the girls gives him something different. Hitagi is someone he can have an intimate relationship with and spar verbally with to his heart's content. This is actually one of the things he loves most about her. Hanekawa is someone he can go to for advice. Kanbaru is his best friend. Mayoi gives him someone where he doesn't have to be on guard with and can just be a dumbass. I don't really know what Nadeko offers him though. Maybe she's the ideal younger sister that people who don't have younger sisters fantasize about.

P.S. He's actually had a few opportunities to "do" a some of the girls and just didn't.

Somehow, I didn't really think of them as a character type, I thought more of them as the personality type.

Hitagi: the cold maiden (ms. verbal spar partner)
Hanekawa: your advisor (ms. perfect)
Nadeko: the shy acquaintance (ms. so-moeeee-showcase-that-needs-to-exist-in-every-series)
Kanbaru: reliable friend (ms. hyper-charged-B+up)
Mayoi: the idiot stooge (ms. dumb-but-sometimes-insightful)

But he did do it with Hitagi right? And he already turned down Hanekawa because he clearly said that he is already in love with Hitagi ad Hitagi said to him that its alright to have feelings for other girls but she wont tolerate if he acts on this feelings right?

FINALLY!
I managed to get a hand (well not really) on a Kizu translation!
Baka-tsuki was taking too long, though there's nothing we can do about it...novel translators are like...a gift from above...
Many thanks for this one~

Ok, I finished up chapter 3 of Kizu over in the translation thread. As a reminder I hope everyone can keep the translation thread free of banter. I appreciate everyone's thanks but please keep it in the discussion thread.

All in all, that took a longgggg time, honestly I don't know how ickem did it with chapter 3 of Cat.

Wow. Fantastic summary of Kizu, mind if I can copy this to Baka-Tsuki as a preview summary script?

Perhaps it can help stimulate some help in recruiting some interest to the project....

Slightly on topic question for the Bakemonogatari novel readers, have you guys read Nisio's first series in Zaregoto and how does it compare to Bakemonogatari? Zaregoto seems to have been a lot more popular among the light novel fanbase in japan than Bakemonogatari was.

A lot more characters, a lot more side plot, a lot more bloody, a lot more mystery, and a ton more to talk about.

I-kun/I-chan probably has a bigger harem than Araragi (I can only use the word probably because more would be heavy spoiler).

In fact, back in 2007, Zaregoto's more popular among Nisio Isin's readers. KEEP IN MIND ONLY BAKEMONOGATARI (both of them) WAS WRITTEN AT THE TIME OF THIS POLL, Kizu comes half a year later, and Nise after that. Zaregoto was finished 2 years before this poll, and Ningen spin off series' Volume 2 was one year before.

As you can see from below, the highest at the time from Monogatari series is Gahara-san at 5th, then Araragi at 13th. Though until Zaregoto gets an anime, I think the Monogatari characters would be most popular.

It seems like a kind person by the name of Kerrichan has been translating Hitagi Crab over in Baka-Tsuki. I thought that I should mention that to people here.

Sweet deal, I thought the first two were being skipped over for some reason since no one was on them.

The Baka-Tsuki translator is clearly a Hanekawa fan.

I thought there's only one working on Bake specifically. Alas, it matters not. They are all heretics for translating Kizu first! Death to infidels! Then again, Hitagi is not my favorite either, so it doesn't matter =)

Personally, I'm a Kissshot fan and that's why I'm doing Kizu. But also because it is the first in terms of chronologically.

I've updated the opening post for the translation thread.

Question for Omimon: Are you planning to translate chapter 1-2, or have you or someone already translated those chapters and submitted somewhere? In an effort to keep myself spoiler-free I haven't been looking around much, so apologies ahead for missing out.
