It's good to see Hitagi taking it a bit slower with Koyomi given her past experiences.

I thought it was a bit fast when she came right out, and claimed him not long after her problem was solved.

I like this.

12 episodes TV broadcast, 3 webcast since they decided to extend the series after they'd already committed to the airing time.

Oh yeah, Perfect 10.

Dialogue and characterisation is once again the limelight that defines this show.

Also, I liked the pan up. I don't like it often, but everything ended on a final note, things seemed resolved and are going in their predicted directions, and some alone time for the two characters.

Delicious dialogue, tantalizing teasing, crisp characterization, and just pure win. How can you not give it 10 haha?

Excuse my ignorance if this question was asked before, but how would one go about watching subbed versions of the three web episodes?

I would die a trillion times to have this sort of relationship with this type of girl. The star scene was really touching, my eyes watered. (':

10/10 - Shame on anyone who gives lower than an eight.

Senjougahara Hitagi Fascination.

What can I say? Definitely the most romantic episode this year, with its dialogue enhanced by Saitou Chiwa's excellent performance.

Enjoyed every bit -- from the bento, to the car, and specially the final part (I've always had a soft spot for astronomy). I have been looking forward to something like this (purposely avoiding the novel spoilers) ever since I read a comment that ryo took parts of the lyrics of Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari directly from the novel, and it didn't disappoint one bit. And of course, you always end romance-drama scenes with a pan-up, as demonstrated by a certain Ultra Director.

Old man Senjougahara reminds me of a certain single, hardworking father, though obviously he's had more luck and success (and less time spent on raising his child alone). His remarks cement Araragi's position as Hitagi's savior, stating how much she has changed since she met him -- echoing Tsubasa's comments in the previous ep.

And speaking of Tsubasa... I find it interesting that Hitagi refers to her as the real thing, something we can never become (exaggerated translation?). Though poor Tsubasa, the TV broadcast eps of her supposed arc were all hijacked by someone else . At least we can look forward to the online broadcast, and I'm hoping (though very unlikely) that they still have something up their sleeve that can top this.

And finally... Sigh, I don't have the words right now to describe the awesomeness of our purple-haired overlord. Here we see that she is really determined to keep Araragi, showing him everything she can offer:
Her sharp tongue, her intellect and support, her junior, her father, and a memory of a united and loving family -- who, once upon a time, gazed up at a night sky filled with hopes and dreams.
Damn, anything related to astronomy in this medium always reminds me of Planetarian. Hope it gets adapted soon...

There's no way I can stay as calm as Otosan if I was in his seat. I would have to stop the car least I crash it laughing so loud.

They can start planning their wedding now, "take care of my daughter" is the kind of stuff fathers say to the groom.

Nope, that translation cannot get any more accurate.

Amazing, mindblowing episode, and the very first time we actually saw Senjougahara's dere-dere side, or maybe she gained it because of Araragi - note, changes! Tsundora -> Tsundere?

Bentou looks good...sausage crabs! What would I do, if a girl that hot starts rubbing her hand in my inner theighs...and well, the Stargazing scene revealed the very insecure side of Hitagi.

I loved how the ED came in - The lyrics are just spot on for this episode (as someone earlier said, they were taken out of the novels).

I really hope now that they are closer, that Senjougahara would become a bigger, active element in solving "Tsubasa Cat".

10/10. What a way to end this series!

So that's why they purposedly avoided to show Hitagi for 3 episodes. Because then we get as much scenes to actually we can fill a whole show with it!

Well...it seems Hitagi's going to be the anime character of the year.

Hitagi Strikes Back!

I hope it's not only me who think that this episode has so many sexual references.

Spoiler for 18+ ??? Not!:

Well, don't get me wrong. I just try to adapt my standard in order to see Kanbaru as a pure and innocent girl.

Good to hear that. I thought shaft made the whole thing up in order to give some sort of closure for the tv episodes.
