Can someone please explain to me what the fuck did I just watch?
A nice anime.
The only thing that I didn't get was why was letting himself to get killed was the only choice the dude had to avoid being used. Since he was aware of it, why not just skip out on it? Or was killing oddities as much of a defining factor of his existence that letting one go was worse than dying? If so it wasn't communicated very well.
The rest was pretty straightforward for Monogatari standards.
so I'm not delusional in thinking that the story made absolutely no sense and was boring right?
because beside the fanservice, there is literally nothing that made this worth watching
The pre-owarimonogatari arc with the usual godlike fanservice, elaborate dialogue, tons of adorable shinobu and once again the never dissapointing appeareance of best girl at the end.
I think it was worth watching for Arararagi's moralfagging getting completely blown the fuck out. As far as the series goes it was really refreshing.
My only complaint is that it just didn't look as good as the rest of the franchise so far.
Appearance wise, he didn't look like a normal human. I don't really know but maybe he wanted to off himself because he was getting closer to become an oddity?
I find interesting that even with scenes as provocative and lewd as some of monogatari's I dont feel at all the urge of fapping, it feels gross with characters like araragi on screen
How do you see your sister as pretty?
It's pretty hard when you grew up with her and used to seeing her face all the time.
Fuck, give me the prettiest woman to stare at non-stop for a year and I'd tell you she looks meh at the end of the year.
Pretty much this.
Although the fact that someone is manipulating people for some kind of unknown agenda has been out there since the start of the second season.
For me, my sister is goodlooking and her body fits my love of wide hips, she likes playing vidya and watching movies with me, she's the only girl who completely trusts me and treats me nicely, and she's said she thinks I'm more attractive than average
To me, only our blood and her boyfriend keeps her from being the perfect woman
>she likes playing vidya and watching movies with me, she's the only girl who completely trusts me and treats me nicely, and she's said she thinks I'm more attractive than average
For your sake, I hope you go out more and meet more people...
You have been visited by 'yay'
Happiness and joy will come to you if you reply 'wow' to this thread
You don't have a sibling. Most of you faggots with your long ass posts are full of shit anyway. To actual find your sibling attractive, you'd have to have a serious mental problem, there's no two ways around that.
Kanbaru is awesome and a best but she doesn't give me boners.
I think it's because she's a lesbian and I respect that. I look at her and admire the perfection that is her body but in a mostly platonic way.
GODDAMN IT WHY IS SHE A LESBIAN, I WOULD FUCK HER WITH THE MAGNETIC FORCE OF JUPITER
>To actual find your sibling attractive, you'd have to have a serious mental problem
When your sibling is good looking you'd have to have mental problems to not find them attractive. Finding someone attractive and wanting to fuck them aren't the same thing. You don't need to have a twisted perception to not fuck your relatives.
It's already been animated, you doofus. It's called
Chronologically, both story-wise and air date-wise, his last appearance was in Hanamonogatari.
How can you be so bad at it.
then I guess I have a serious mental problem, because while I'd never tell her about these feelings or do anything to hurt out relationship, I wouldn't even think twice about fucking her if she asked me to
it really sucks having to pretend I'm completely normal all the time, I don't even trust my psychiatrist enough to tell them about it
>he hasn't watched neko yet
Practically everything that happened in the second series was put in motion by Ougi. That much is evident if you pay attention.
It apparently just talks to people casually, but it says the right thing at the right moment, and then shit happens.
What's most frightening is that nobody notices that something is wrong with her.
AHHHHHHHH I WANT TO VIOLATE YOU KANBARU
I WANT TO BE INSIDE YOU
She never did much to me but that goddamn scene where she's exhausted in the back seat of Ararararagi's faggotmobile created something harder than diamonds in the vicinity of my pants.
Was it her delicious belly visually mirroring her emotional vulnerability at the time?
>not a cosmic apparition with no gender
tell you what, its gonna take me some time to un-think ougi from CG.
that was a pretty cool sound effect
>tfw studios will never release their sound assets
feeds fucking awful man.
>is araragi a masochist?
What do you think? I bet he had a raging boner while Kanbaru was beating his ass until he couldn't keep it up from the blood loss.
>No rule 34 of Ougi
No anon, you just want to fug the smug.
The way I understood it:
>He has to do his job. It's part of who he is. He can't turn his back on it.
>There is no avoiding that from his perspective Araragi and Tsuhiki are targets.
>He can't just not do his job.
>Someone is using this fact. Someone VERY good at using people is using this.
>Refuses to be a tool.
>Still can't turn his back on what he is.
>Fight Araragi and be a tool or let Ononoki do what he knew she was going to.
>Fuck being a tool. I'm gonna die at the hands of my Waifu. Peace peace nigga.
But I feel like I could be missing something obvious still.
It's a Rosencrantz and Guildenstern kind of thing. Tedori isn't given the role to die so he can alienate Araragi's relationship by the darkness itself; it's a role given by Nisio. He was created specifically by Nisio, mentioned in this arc by the characters specifically for the moment, and his importance exists solely for this one moment with Araragi. Tedori was implying that he was self-aware of this and breaking the third wall subtly as has other characters done before. And because he knows this, no matter what he tries, he will never escape his fate because it's his role to die for the story's sake. Hence, the theatrical spotlights and shit shown in the anime when he was speaking with Araragi.
tl;dr Nisio Isin
God she is annoying.
Also those eyebrows are ugly!
Sorry. Hana started out so slowly I was auto-piloting until Kaiki showed up but by then it was too late.
I was assuming that was the joke if it was an edit but apparently I'm wrong about that.
Essentially Ougi, whatever Ougi is, has the purpose of "making things proper". Ougi caused Snail to be exorcised because she was a "ghost pretending to be human", and tried to separate Ragi and Doll because she was a "monster pretending to be human". She also tried to back Ragi into a corner with the origami fella because that would force Ragi to stop being a "vampire-like human", and become a vampire proper.
Basically she's trying to suck out of the vagary that makes gatari what it is.
I don't need blatant fan service (but as I watched it at 3 in the morning it did make me strangely aroused in a way I would not normally).
Though as always, I enjoy the dialogue.
I think you're taking both it, and yourself, too goddamn seriously.
I'm a cynical person, but fuck, what's the point of living if you can't enjoy cute girls and clever dialogue?
My sister is 5 years older.
She is from an objective standpoint INCREDIBLY attractive.
Like Greek god attractive.
I think I sort of always took that as a given and admired her for her strong personality and ability to control and take control of situations, she manages a whole shop full of dudes and they know who's the boss.
But I don't think I've ever had sexual feelings for her, for some reason it just doesn't seem to follow?
If we weren't related there's no way I could not.
Self-aware fan service is always superior. It typically involves better production, better dialogue, and infinitely superior character design
Check, check, triple check. *monogatari is the best fan service/harem ever made not only because it's aware of its own self-indulgence and wish fulfillment, but because its so attuned to its own wallowing autism that creates nearly perfect objects of anime desire
The last guy to do that? Anno, Lord of Self-Hatred. He created two female anime teens that were so well crafted to the tastes of emotionally stunted teenagers that they became the two biggest "waifus" in anime history
Are you maybe responding to the wrong post?
Because it doesn't make much sense.
It's not like there's a "let me detail my sweet sexual relationship" or "let me tell you a tale of my awesomeness".
Can a human being be a concentrated mass of solid faggotry?
The answer is yes and the proof is this anon right here.
I'm not even a doll fan.
Yotsugi's eyebrows are cute
It makes more sense in the book, but Araragi's perceptions of everything get more and more distorted as he's exposed to Ougi, until he can break through to the main reveal of the entire series that she's there to represent.
Ugh, just fuck already.
>tfw you want Araragi's hair but you have brownish hair that goes curly when it grows long
I thought that was just Kanbaru not really paying attention to Ougi and it would be kind of tactless to claim someone is dressed/pretending to be the wrong gender if you don't really know them.
no one does. anime is weird like that.
I know at least two or three people who enjoy/would enjoy monogatari. I think watching any kind of anime with them would be awkward as fuck. Let alone this fanservice-ridden incestuous pedophile-pandering piece of heaven.
Why is she trying to be a cat? Does she desire the Shuraragi dick?
It's the fangs anon.
It was more like "She is so cute when she gets flustered, I want to eat her up." face.
PLEASE JUST TELL ME HOW TO GET BEAUTIFUL ARARAGI HAIR ;_;
blonde hair and fangs are my fetish. muh dick.
feet, you say?
These eyebrows are also my fetish.
shinobu has so much feet service
>tfw you marathoned bake and nise with 3 friends
Please delete that image from your computer. Here is a replacement image that isn't terrible.
Gaen is manipulating everything too. Idk who is the evil one if not both.
that nose though.
Today's word is translucent. Can you tell me what translucent means?
Gaen is trying to make things better, not fuck everything up and put Kiss-Shot on a rampage.
this a shinobu thread now boys
kaiki second best girl right behind bat
Footfags are going to be happy when Kizu finally gets animated.
Maybe Ougi is manipulating for evil and Gaen for good.
>what is with this bitch's hair? I remember a scene where she was hanging upside down and her hair still went in the other direction.
Her hair sticks out at sharp angles at the tips. This is in the design art. This intentionally makes her hair resemble scythes.
It also gives her a distinctive silhouette, which is important for making her look like the same character as she changes ages all over the place.
>Can she attack with her hair and slice things up?
Why would she need to? She can slice things up with just her FINGERS. You got to realise that she is really, really over powered. The only reason she has a sword is because it is actually overpowered as much as she is.
Wait, Karen wears uniform under her sport clothes? I feel so gypped
She's feels like Nisio's latest experiment with how stereotypically overpowered he can make a character without ruining the story.
Just to add, Heartunderblade's outfit is themed after "A crow that flies amongst the blood and gore".
>Damn, those proto fire sisters sure were shit, glad he scrapped those.
They are not scrapped, they are just showing the choice of hair and clothing, which was kept. And also the fried eggs are used because straight up flames as decorations is too serious and not fitting them.
She's a nisetomboy. Kanbaru is the real thing.
>died 6 days before his birthday
this upsets me more than it should
Araragi sure as hell has quite the deep feelings of correction.
>Just finished Koyomimonogatari
Just went through short story shit to just get thrown a curve ball. Basically Nisio just went "HEY ANON IT IS TIME FOR PLOT. SO ENJOY THE FUN". FUCK YOU GAEN AND FUCK YOU NISIO, WHY DID THAT HAVE TO HAPPEN. He didn't deserve it. Now i gotta power through Owari vol 2. God damn it all. Why, just why.
please stop, my dick can only get so hard.
Please stop anon, i don't want to feel more shit than i already do.
Can someone explain to me why Hanekawa is trying to hide from Gaen?
Actually. I feel that Gaen hates her some reason. Am I missing something here?
Yes, but why?
There is no reason for her to be such a bitch at Hanekawa.
On the surface, it may seem so, but Araragi is more on the path of Kaiki.
What was his last arc like in the anime? they had a 10 minute speech on how Kaiki wasn't actually a con man, but seems like that because all his plans fail at the worst possible time/ place. He wanted to help Crab, but failed to realize her own emotions towards Okaa-san, despite his actions being the correct way to fix the situation. It fails because he didn't take into account Hitagi's personality.
TLDR, Araragi is like Kaiki, he just lacks the experience of failure like Kaiki.
This anime is literally the best.
Any of the Batfriends in this thread have a higher quality version of pic related? It's from one of the Shinobu artbooks.
Kaiki may be right about many things...
... but not this.
