This should surprise no one at this point, but the recap did indeed end with an end-card advertising TBC in Highlights III, which I fully expect to air after this arc is over. This recap covered Bakemonogatari, which leaves Nisemonogatari for next time. I guess that raises the question of what they might include in Highlights IV (between the next arc and the last one), but we'll see...

Episode 11 is Koyoki Araragi's narrative recap of the different apparitions he has encountered with the female friends (his memories). He says so himself: "However, introducing a story of 15 episodes in just 30 minutes is asking for the impossible". It is a recap of Bakemonogatari. But I noticed that it is a new edit and his voice sounds older.

The first ten minutes is Hitagi Crab, the next three minutes is Mayoi Snail, the next five minutes is Suruga Monkey, and the next four minutes is Nadeko Snake. Then the narrative ends "I'm out of time. This ends Koyomi Araragi memoirs for today. I'll retell the continuation in due time." The episode gives the best memory he has when Hitagi asked him out for a date, and she offers him the stars that night. Then it all ends on some scenes of Tsubasa Cat. All in only 24 minutes.

I find this a nice recap, since Bakemonogatari is where most fans, including myself, began, and it shows how much Koyomi wanted to save these girls. And they begin a new friendship with him, and even showed their love for him.

I gave it a 9 of 10 score.

A nicely done recap episode as the points included are the core plots.
Perfect 10.

I liked the first recap. Consider me very irritated that certain groups aren't subbing this because "oh noes, recaps suck". :rolleyes:
