Is Bakemonogatari a male power fantasy? Seems like araragi just gets whatever he wants and has the easy life, and all the women attracted to him for no reason...
Araragi helps everyone because he doesn't want to deal with his own problems. His perverse nature is mostly a facade because he doesn't want to let anyone in.
He's as fucked up as the girls.
Have you not been paying attention at all since season 2? Sure Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari were pretty smooth sailing. but Second season and Tsuki showed that Araragi has some fucked up times ahead of him espeically with Ougi being the presented antagonist
I mean he's at least trying to get what he wants, putting effort and all that jazz
and it's not like the girls are attracted to him for no reason other than "male MC, let's suck his cock"
>Seems like araragi just gets whatever he wants and has the easy life
Sure, if you ignore all the shit he went through like the cherry-picking faggot you are OP
if you don't mind some spoilers
>grow up lonely, a disappointment to your parents, and without friends
>practically suicidal upon entering high school
>gets hunted by crazy fucking vampire slayer men during his summer break
>sustains lethal injuries countless times, to the point where he habitually forces his fingers into his skull multiple times to LITERALLY rack his brain for solutions to his problems
>is a pseudo-immortal, has to live knowing he will most likely grow much older than his friends and family and will watch basically all of them die before he passes
>fails to save his close friends multiple times, even after "gaining plenty of experience" and bears the burdens for it
>can't do shit for Snake, comes too late to do anything after months of doing nothing and manages to have zero positive influence on her situation
>even though he knew exactly where she was when she was missing for months and knew she was possessed, and failed to keep her away from a charm he was explicitly told to keep well protected by Gaen
>can't do shit for Snail, has absolutely no say in whether or not she be "allowed" to continue to exist per Gaen's advice/orders
>eventually his insecurities and failures obtain a physical vessel with which to fuck with his life, friends, and family in the ass while he's just trying to scrape by
kaiki best girl
>araragi just gets whatever he wants
He failed to save Snail and couldn't help Snake.
>and has the easy life
In every single arc someone or something tries to kill him.
>and all the women attracted to him for no reason
Do you have brain problems or something? The whole show is about Araragi helping the girls, he is always trying his best for the sake of someone else. No wonder, they would fall for him.
>araragi just gets whatever he wants and has the easy life, and all the women attracted to him for no reason...
That's the total opposite
Seems like you didn't pay attention to the story at all
Doesn't he have some mother issues.
It's mentioned in the first Snail arc, during mother's day.
anything mentioned on her being a cop on the LNs; is that part of the all the siblings having that hero complex
