The series claims he's in love with her, but it does feel like he's with her just because that's how it ended up rather than him actually enjoying being with her, I agree. Good luck getting /a/ to agree with you, though.

Are you one of them retard people?

>>124926081
If so, then why did he refuse Hanekawa's feelings when he found out about them?
Nothing about it feels like it's just how it turned out, especially given that he could be with a number of other girls.
Just because they're not fawning over each other all the time, it doesn't mean they don't care about each other.

>>124926081
It seems to me that he's only ever really interested in girls he can "save." Once Senjougahara is fine and dandy he loses interest and she becomes a tertiary character.

>>
>>124926258
Just because their relationship develops offscreen doesn't mean he's not in love with her. Monogatari stopped focusing on their romance after Bake.
>>
I was always under the impression that the relationship just goes on off-screen. Every time it's been brought up he never hesitates to say that he loves her, and it's not like he had no other options if he wanted another one of the girls.

It's like the line from Tatami Galaxy: "There's nothing more boring than a story about successful love." Or whatever it was.

He just doesn't constantly outwardly swoon for her like we're programmed to expect from most anime. And she doesn't for him. That doesn't mean they don't love each other genuinely and completely.

>>
>>124926638
>>124926768
Their thing is more serious. It's an actual relationship. But Monogatari isn't about that. It's about a "ghost story" and fanservice.
For example, their kiss wasn't shown. Instead of that the "camera" just points to the starry sky. But all those irrelevant kisses with the lolis were.
>>
>>124926638
The series doesn't focus on their relationship because they live an ordinary high school couple life, while what is shown are new and different interactions and conflicts. It makes a specific point not to show what happens in their ordinary lives except the beginning of Nise.

In the novels, it feels like he doesn't truly fall for her until the starry sky scene, so I'll give you that:
>Senjougahara Hitagi...she is incredibly smart and always plots the right course, but in area of love she is powerless. Absolutely powerless. Even on that Mother's Day when we first started going out, it was obvious, this woman is completely reckless, like the main character of an RPG that enters a cave without a torch. It's as if she is showing all her cards to her opponent and leaving it up to him to decide what happens next, but does she realize that she is basically engaging in diplomacy through intimidation? Emotions wouldn't matter in this case. Confronted with this, the opponent would run away ninety-nine times out of a hundred. That's why she's afraid. Even someone with absolutely no experience with relationships can see it....
>Well.
>If she can see that I'm the remaining one out a hundred, I have to tip my hat to her.
>This is bad.
>I've really fallen for her.
>So much so that I can't help it.
>>
>>124927127
>In the novels, it feels like he doesn't truly fall for her until the starry sky scene, so I'll give you that:
It did feel that way in the anime too. At least to me it did.
>>
>>124925601
He's waiting for her to molt, so that he can deep fry her and put her on a sandwich
>>
Meh it's pretty simple.

He likes Hitagi. His ideal type of woman is Hanekawa.
The rest is just Churaragi being a pervert
>>
>>124925663
>There's no evidence at all that he's even the slightest bit invested.
He refused Cat's advances, even though he was clearly physically attracted to her. You don't do this without a good reason.

>>

>>
>>124927340
I agree with your conclusion but Cat isn't good evidence: he had already made up his mind about Cat by the end of Neko Kuro before he ever met Senjougahara.
>>
>>124926258
Araragi loves crab precisely because she saved herself.
>>
>>124927671
>I agree with your conclusion but Cat isn't good evidence: he had already made up his mind about Cat by the end of Neko Kuro before he ever met Senjougahara.
It is canon that he didn't realise she loved him at that point. This despite the fact that she kept hanging around him in school and everyone else assume they were dating. He was a dense protagonist. So that's why he didn't want to make any moves that would offend her.
>>
>>124926081
>>124926638
I agree. Has he ever *initiated* a show of affection since getting together? Seems like it's always her making the moves on him. He's like a figurative dead fish in their relationship.
>>
>>124927738
Nah it's more of a respect. He is only interested in girls that he thinks need him. He has a fucking messiah complex.

That's why it seems like he was in love with Snail when that black cloud was after her..
>>
>>124927410
They probably did something offscreen.
He even said their "relationship improved after that afternoon"
>>
>>124927870
He was always in love with snail.
>>
>>124926183
>>124927340
He was already taken. It can't be helped.

OTOH, Shinobu had him first by that standard, but he didn't refuse Senjougahara, so that might not be why.
>>
>>124928145
His relationship with bat is completely different than with crab. The whole point is him being unable to choose between the natural and supernatural.
Like all of nise was about this.

I'm on Nise, I asked because Shinobu says everyone will die and he will stay with her.

And the reason I asked it's pretty obvious, if he is in fact immortal or has a larger lifespan then she'll be the only one to"win".
>>
>>124928432
This goes beyond the scope of the story.
Stop talking about it as it is irrelevant.

All it does is get batfags and crabfags riled up at each other.
>>
>>124927763
Read / watch Neko Kuro again. He doesn't realize she likes him, but he legitimately thinks he likes her at the beginning of the book. When he learns about her family situation and sees her rampaging around as Black Hanekawa he becomes deeply disillusioned. It's more about his feelings than about her's.
>>
>>124928338
No. Second Season is fine. Specially Koi. And it's overall pretty good, although it starts weakly (no Araragi as narrator nor present at all kind of kills it).

But every release outside Bake, Nise and Second Season proper has been subpar. Neko Kuro, Hana and Tsuki are what's to blame.

>>124928399
The series is always about conflict and growing, so it doesn't focus on peaceful and steady relationships. So it probably isn't for you, unless you're willing to wait until the second-to-last book where they'll throw you a bone.

I half agree except that NekoShiro, Kabuki and Oni were plain bad too (especially considering how rushed was Kabuki).
>>
>>124928717
From physical damage, and to a degree. What's her face sure thought she could be killed. She'll still die from aging though.

>>124928721
Tsuki was pretty good. I've never seen a cat arc that hasn't left me bored though.

>>124928717
No, she can age. The cuckoo kai will just leave and find another vessel

I think it's said she DOES have a larger lifespan, but she'll die eventually of old age. She can't be killed by other means that that tho.

Shit, I can't argue like this. Can someone tell me what is what:
gataris: oni, kabuki
content: time travel + zombies, loli kisses

otori is medusa, koi is kaiki and neko shiro is the first one. Did I miss something?

Well, anyway, time travel + zombies and loli kisses were very good and neko shiro was shit.

Not that anon, but Black Hanekawa gets lots of screentime as a protagonist, Crab gets lots of screentime with a slightly new personality, the mechanics of Hanekawa's psyche are interesting and unique, Araragi has a badass scene, and we get this extremely well-made sequence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxCtw62KRwc

I'll have to post this for the hundredth time. Summary of a short story called Karen Arm-Leg:
>Karen is throwing a huge tantrum in the living room. She is lying on the floor and swinging her arms and legs violently. Because she has long arms and legs, she is destroying everything in the living room. Ararargi has just told her that he has a girlfriend, and Karen refuses to believe this fact. She claims that Araragi is hers alone and demands him to break up with Senjougahara immediately. She even offers to have sex with him if that's what he wants. Araragi is horrified at her completely unexpected reaction. Karen is also furious that when Araragi brushed her teeth, he already had a girlfriend. Finally, she demands to meet Senjougahara, and she claims she will brush Senjougahara's teeth in order to prove that Araragi is hers alone.

Remember how after the toothbrush episode there's no sexual tension between them when RRRG is riding on her shoulders?
