Am I the only one who feels bad for Sengoku? All she wanted was Arararararararagi's love.
Sengoku did nothing wrong.
>All she wanted was Arararararararagi's love.
But she didn't. She was just using him as the lynchpin in some mental gymnastics for why she didn't have to try at anything in life. This is why everyone hates snakefags.
Snake just wanted some attention,
She decided that she wanted arrrg's
she made that a goal for herself, and suffered for never trying to bring it to fruition
just because of a few pages of 'this was the real reason why blah blah blah' doesn't invalidate that what she wanted was the arrg.
Love is actually that simple and that stupid at times.
this convoluted plot is what happens when you try to over-analyze middle school and high school relationships. Nisio a hack.
I don't understand why any of the girls like Araragi except Senjougahara
It makes sense that she would, because he's fun to bully, and she loves to bully him, and while she's not exactly doing it out of debt to him his tendency to help people seems to be something she finds attractive
Maybe that's just a side effect of her being the official heroine. The others just seem to like him because... he's the protagonist in a harem story
I fully understand what she did and why she did it and how fucked up it was and I absolutely love it.
I've got a thing for crazies. Especially crazy gods.
It's usually a combination of desperate girls projecting their fantasies on Araragi and him being the only real social contact they have.
He helped Hachikuji escape a solitary existence where she has to curse people and they have tons of fun hanging out.
Hanekawa had a shitty home life and Araragi stuck by her despite that even though the way she revealed it chased all her other friends off and his vampirism turned him into a larger than life figure she fantasized about sweeping her off her feet and taking her away from her shitty life.
Shinobu is literally the happiest she has ever been in her entire life because she has someone who gives a fuck about her for who she is and she doesn't have to spend her life perpetually on the run from both exorcists and the curse she brought to any land she stayed in too long. Araragi is responsible for that.
Basically this. The only thing that separates Senjougahara from the rest is that she's honest about it. She openly admits that she sees Araragi as a prince that would come save her.
Snake isn't much different than crab the ony difference is that snake is cute and wasn't the first girl appearing therefore she doesn't win Araragi for herself.
PLUS she draws fucking manga i mean how amazing is that.
Not my favorite character but I don't dislike her. Her interactions early on were cute, could've gotten annoying but frankly she didn't even appear often enough for that to happen to me.
Medusa Arc made her a fun antagonist + it was interesting to see someone who was seriously beyond Araragi's scope to save.
I've seen other anons say that she briefly appears in Ougi Dark or something, I'm interested in seeing that. Her character arc hasn't really been rounded off properly until we see what she's like after she's been saved, as was the case with every other chick in the series.
For Hachikuji, he was the first guy in 11 years to stick his neck out for her, even after Gahara passed on that message from Oshino explaining how he should just ditch her. It's beyond reasonable enough in her case.
For Kanbaru, a lot of people just dismiss their relationship as 'she wanted to kill him during Suruga Monkey -> she wants his dick after Suruga Monkey' when it's not quite that simple. She even says at the end of that arc that nothing was really resolved + her Monkey's Paw is still actually there. While she doesn't want to kill Araragi anymore, her feelings towards him are a mixture of admiration and envy - she massively respects the guy and knows that he's not a bad person at heart, but she didn't fully get over her feelings for Gahara either. She grows to like him more over time but I don't think she really sees Araragi in a romantic sense at all, I get the impression that she just wants to be closer to Gahara in some way (which includes having a physical relationship with the guy Gahara loves)
Araragi was pretty much Hanekawa's best friend growing up, and after Kizu he basically became a 'prince charming' type figure for her that she got sort of delusional over. She gets more development on dealing with this never happening than the premise for it itself does though, I guess (I hear the LNs massively flesh it out and that the anime cut most of it out though)
>Hanekawa had a shitty home life and Araragi stuck by her despite that even though the way she revealed it chased all her other friends off and his vampirism turned him into a larger than life figure she fantasized about sweeping her off her feet and taking her away from her shitty life.
Him being a vampire didn't matter, in Neko White, she said she fell for him because he tried so hard despite being a rather pathetic guy.
"I fell for the crybaby Araragi-kun, because I have never cried before."
And did you not understand why she asked Araragi if it was okay to change at the end of White? It was because he told her to keep her facade in Black. He literally told her to never change and suffer forever as a guide to him.
The writer couldnt do basic math correctly.
Did you see the later arcs after that?
