I meant what time period, like Edo, etc. I'm trying to think of what the First Servant's armor looked like.

400 years ago would be around the beginning of the Edo period. Might be a few years before it.

1)He returned the heart because he believed he failed as a middle-man because of what happened with Guilliotinecutter and Hanekawa. He said he should have been the final boss because if what happened didn't happened then Araragi would have had to fight him to get back the heart.

2)Araragi had to give up his humanity because he was still new to his vampire powers and in order to shapeshift into a tree he had give up being restrained to human limits and see himself as a tree.

3)Yes, that's basically it.

For the past three years he had being separating himself from society. He didn't want any part with things like friends, he wanted to be a plant so he could just ignore everything. He was able to relate being a tree the most so that's why he chose to shape-shift into a tree. As for why he didn't try to strangling him......he had a hostage?

Doesn't Araragi also mean Yew Tree?

Spoiler for Kiss Shot Acerola Orion Heart Under Blade's meaning:
i was wondering since everyone else's name seems to have a pun/meaning.

Yeah, the Japanese yew, although not written in the same way. Maybe that's why Araragi wanted to turn into a plant.

In Japanese his name is 阿良々木 暦

阿 (a) can mean many things. For example it is the first kanji of "ahou", which means "simpleton".
良 (ra) is "good".
々 (ra) repeats what comes before. I'm not sure if you can really find this kanji in surnames.
木 (gi) effectively means tree, and it seems to be a common last kanji in surnames, so I don't think it is very meaningful.
暦 (koyomi) is "calendar", possibly referring to the fact there is a chronology.

I looked it up, and maybe there is a meaning, but I've yet to find it.

Heart Under Blade is 忍, the kanji of heart under the kanji of blade. Incidentally, 忍 is part of Oshino's name, 忍野. It seems that naming a Kaii after yourself bears some importance, anyway 忍 could also be read as "shinobu", so in the end she became Oshino Shinobu (忍野忍).

The rest of the name looks something like what you could get if you translated separatedly the radicals that compose the kanji of a Japanese name. I've tried to see if I could come up with something, but either the joke is very oscure (I didn't manage to find any kanji for kiss, for example) or it simply never meant anything at all.

Incidentally, there is a joke in Hitagi's name. Hanekawa commented that the name sounded like something related to public works.

"Public works" is written 土木 (soil + tree)
The name "Hitagi" in kanji can only be written as 肥田木 (fertilizer + field + tree)
By the way, the name of Bakemonogatari's character is written in hiragana, therefore it has no meaning associated

Yea, that was what I thought too. Sort of a plothole. If I remember correctly what happened was that when they cut off her limbs they did something where she couldn't regenerate her limbs. Basically they wanted her to bleed to death.

When Koyomi takes Kokorowatari into his body, why does it pain him? Is it because the sword was made for Kiss Shot and she carried it in her body for centuries or because he isn't a full vampire?

Season? Do light novels have seasons? Anyway, your question is still too vague. For example, Hanekawa actually daydreamed of being his wife. Maybe you would like to know what Araragi thinks of the girls. The only thing certain is that Nadeko at the moment comes dead last, but who knows, maybe she can still reverse her situation with a surprise plot twist

The reason why it hurts Araragi first of all is because Kokorowatari is a sword made specifically to slay Kaiis. It can't hurt humans but it can destroy all forms of Kaiis. Anyways when Kissshot hides the sword she does it in a way where she turns her body in a sheath for the sword so it doesn't cut her. Araragi still don't know how to use his powers so he directly stuck the sword through himself flesh and all. When the sword was in him it was cutting him in an infinite loop where he was getting cut and regenerating at the same time.

Because sir, it is a sword, and swords, as we know, cut things.

All joking aside though, he probably just doesn't know how to hide it like Kissshot can, him not being very skilled.
