Did anyone else want to give Sodachi a hug?
Besides her abusive parents and appalling childhood, she didn't realize her mother had been dead for 2 years and decomposed in a room in the house before she stopped making food for a corpse.
Re-posting Kanbaru, I can't get over this scene <3
Yes, I would have loved to see more of her, I want to see her blush
Plus, once someone makes her realize that, she just says "oh, so that's what I was doing for years? Well, thanks for telling me, I'm getting better now. kaythanxbye." and just walk away with all her traumas solved and cured.
I want to, but she probably doesn't want one.
I don't think Sodachi knows how to cry.
It was one of the best arcs for me, but weighted down by the mystery that was more or less pointless for Sodachi development, but needed for Cat, Ougi and Araragi's.
I think the first one was "I hate/despise", and the second "I refuse" from what someone mentioned other thread.
I still want to hug her
Your best chance is getting close to her through math lessons so she can get used to you. And always being grateful for all the help.
Both are great, Kanbaru is probably the character with the most development while Sodachi is a late comer with the story still open. I really want to see the true Sodachi after "moving on".
It might be my personal bias then since Hana was last year and there is a lot of her this season and more on Oroka making me think she got more careful attention.
When did this happen? I've watched everything up to now but I don't remember this at all. And where has Shinobu fucked off to?
>Not I bit your tongue
Following up the kiss with "I stuttered" doesn't even make sense.
I believe it was during Monogatari Series Second Season, when Araragi, Snail, and Bat were being chased by the "darkness". It passed over Araragi's shadow, and severed his link with Shinobu.
I can't see a character that learned early the need to take care of herself and who is so obsessed on judging people to not have proper hygienic habits to back her up.
Keep posting it every time anon.
We all could do with a little monkey.
Shinobu's eyes Pt. 2
I agree, I figured the subs weren't correct but it didn't bother me much
It's probably just because of the priorities on each scene. If there was a scene about Oikura stepping on Araragi then the feet would be perfectly drawn and animated there.
Thick feet is bad, but I'm glad Shaft hadn't put such detail on them, like Hanekawa's veiny tits.
Yup, pretty much the only reason why they look so bad, but it would make sense considering Sodachi's situation, I guess.
Bee has nice feet too, didn't save them though.
Monkey has nice feet.
Why is this a foot thread?
Something positivie and cute.
Almost Ononoki's pantsu
They all have nice feet, I'd let them step on me
>now the doll
Why does this series panders so much to footfags? Is it that on the LN too?
She was probably suffering from strong dissociation at that point. She would take all measures to avoid the effects of the strong smell (which was slightly reduced by the fact that the mother completely isolated the room from outside) but if someone asked why she was doing that she wouldn't be able to tell why. Maybe even think some sickness was the reason for her vomiting after getting close to leave the food.
When Araragi said, she remembered she did a lot of things that didn't make sense and finally connected them all with the possibility.
I still rather Nisio didn't write that though.
The second one was just a sad 12 years old girl.
The fucked up one. Or it was Koyomi's blood that fixed it for the next scenes.
She is Hanekawa's friend, and maybe Senjougahara.
She seduced him with math, can't be impure with math.
Yes, but entirely platonic, like his first friend he forgot and got a new first friend later.
Here's another one for you feet weirdos.
And then here's one for people who like it fat.
You don't need to murder her father, it will probably not help with her current problems.
I hope SHAFT goes bankrupt after finishing Kizu.
Or, more accurately, I hope they willingly spend 100% of their funds on Kizu. And all profit made from Kizu goes into improving the home release of it.
That would probably hurt a lot if she is in her kiraikiraikirai mode.
Good that they will never finish Kizu then. And if they do go bankrupt there will be no one for off-season, post-season and ever-season.
Maybe her parents didn't buy her a chair. She seems to really like her single triangular chair she bought with her government aid.
I want Ougi to put her sleeves close to my erect dick.
Then, I want her sleeves to slowly descend over my erect manhood so that I can feel her soft, pale hand stroke my dick as I ejaculate all over the insides of her sleeves.
I don't want to see her hands though.
I can't either, fampai. It's just so fucking comfy, the music, the atmosphere, everything.
They really do love eachother under all the bullshit and banter. Comfy friendship Monkey and Ragi scenes a best.
First is read as "Kirai da" and literally means "(I) hate (it / you)". The second is read as "Iya da" and means more something along the lines of "(It's) disgusting". It's used in a lot of different contexts, it's a "dislike" with a more "disgusting" meaning and not straight hate.
So the references to Cat are the skipped chapters from Neko White, right? Other than that I'm not sure how much of the current situation I'm supposed to understand. I should've rewatched season 2 sooner.
You know what I just came to realize? Araragi actually ended up agreeing with Yozuru's point.
In the end he couldn't actually bring himself to tell Tsukihi that she is an oddity because it would change too much.
He knows she would take advantage of her immortality to try commit good and that it could get out of control which is exactly what Yozuru's issue was.
This must be the result of two allies of justice facing off.
Can Justice really lose at that point? Both people are fighting for Justice and they both effectively got partially what they wanted.
Yozuru got to nip Tsukihi in the bud and Araragi got to keep his sisters safe.
Admittedly Yozuru only got to explode Araragi's heart once but I'm sure she'll make do.
>Both people are fighting for Justice and they both effectively got partially what they wanted.
There are different kinds of justice and there are people who are not willing to compromise at all.
It's fine. Keeping a Monogatari thread on life support generally pays off because there's generally someone on /a/ who has something worthwhile to say about the series on any given day day. Just keep a conversation rolling so there's a place for that person to talk when they come along.
I don't know if you generally think about things like this but do you think that fellow anons generally care about your general opinions on such general subjects as Monogatari generals?
It's stupid late where I am. Give it a rest.
To explore the themes of how immoral Koyomi Araragi actually is and how we laugh it off because his immorality is played up as a joke.
I personally blame the fact he's part oddity. His incest never really got so bad until after he became a vampire and he was a good kid until Kiss-shot got involved.
Truly monsters cannot understand and become human no matter how they try and the longer Araragi stays part vampire, the more he'll sink away from humanity.
Introduce Sodachi. Her later arcs wouldn't make sense without this arc.
Sodachi Fiasco and the sequel that will probably be in a future book.
>her mother had been dead for 2 years and decomposed in a room in the house before she stopped making food for a corpse.
This is more real than it sounds actually.
There was a big scandal about Japs hiding their dead parents to get their benefits. It's also part of the reason why lifetime scale in Japan is large, they are just faking numbers.
She was a mentally unstable child who had years of abuse, no friends, lost her house, and failed to get help proper when she seeked it out.
The house was also filled with garbage regularly, because she had to take care of it herself as a middle schooler in the middle of nowhere.
"I'm already a demon, Kan"? - Araragi "Punished Vampire" Koyomi
If Hanekawa's right, and she usually is. Part of his motivation to go with her was to grab her breasts even if he personally admits the situation in which she would mention that would warrant him listening to her regardless.
Also all of Ougi's existence is just one big spotlight onto Araragi's immorality.
Whether or not it's common sense. It is still immoral to fondle someone else's breasts when you are in a relationship.
>inb4 Senjougahara did it
She is also immoral.
Really should get the webm of this one day
>you will never be in a relationship with crab
>you will never be in an almost relationship with cat
>you will never be friends with/sexually harass snail
>you will never have two sisters who love you in two ways
>you will never have bird and bee for sisters and to look out for
>you will never try to keep monkey off your dick but still be good friends with her
>you will never be friends with snake and she will never try to fuck you
>you will never have bat for a slave but show affection for her now and again
>you will never have doll open up to you and actually consider you a friend
>you will never fuck any of them
I just finished Nise and I think I'm finally warming up to the series and really starting to like it.
I'm confused about Araragi and second best girl's relationship, when did they start fugging? Was is the "walk me home gently" part when they first started going at it? Also, in Second Season, does it explore their relationship anymore or is she pretty much just the only reason why he isn't fucking everybody and everything?
the only reason rrrgi isn't fugging anyone is because he's dumb and doesn't realize Senjougahara only wants him to love her, why do you think she lets him fool around with so many other girls
I didn't get that impression because of how pissed of she was just because he saw monkey's bare ass. She seemed pretty upset and he flat out lied by saying he didn't see her naked. It seems like she's oblivious to all his incest and sexual harassment.
That scene you're referencing is the scene in which we learn Senjougahara is fine with Araragi being Araragi as long as "it doesn't get serious".
Before that he wasn't aware he could go around molesting his sisters without Senjougahara getting up in his shit.
It's not that I can't stand them, but they took up pretty much the whole spotlight of the last couple arcs I've seen.
Also, literal worst girl in any anime and manga right here.
Anon are you trying to start some shit?
Anyways if you're talking about shinobu time that's pretty much the most you see of them.
Doll shows up in tsuki for quite a bit though.
I don't mind her, there were just too many lolis at once for a while.
>Crab and Doll share third place
Everyone else is good in their own ways, the only one i find kind of dull is whatsherface from Hana but even then she was decent.
What is there to dislike about her, though? She's fun and a good person through and through. She's pretty low on my list simply because she's very simple and thus not very interesting in comparison to the other girls, but I can see why she's well-liked.
They really do show plenty of feet in the show, I never thought about until this thread
I want to make donuts for Shinobu
>karen confirmed for worst feet
I wasn't expecting for people to still talk about the cute math fairy 2 weeks into Shinobu arc. I really expected more Shinobu in this arc though.
Decent Black is Dec 23
Mathemagics is Jan 27.
And Sodachi Lost theme Feb 24.
She is one of the least dangerous characters having no special powers and the strength of a tiny girl who doesn't exercise. You just need to guarantee there is nothing around that can be used as weapon.
Nevermind, I forgot desustorage existed
how does Cat's butt even get that big
Where the fuck is everyone in this city? I think the only character I've seen who isn't a main character is crab's dad.
gotta remember that like everything in the art and animation of this show is meant to be symbolic and wastes as little as possible. background people are never animated because araragi doesn't notice things outside of his focus
There are plenty of average citizens from Nadeko's perspective, although they look like silhouettes with patterns in them. All the other POV characters don't care about anyone except their friends.
Maybe not an OP, but there seems to be a theme song with the Sodachi Lost BD, same as with Ougi Formula (Decent Black) and Sodachi Riddle (Mathemagics).
She can start a club about making friends.
Shaft's backgrounds are kind of based off the Vofan's surreal illustrations from the books, but mostly their own style, rather than Nisio's descriptions.
The town in Another is pretty close to how it would look if it were done by another anime studio.
It's stated in the novels that it's a small town that isn't too close to anything else. SHAFT probably made it a bigger city because A) Araragi's perspective is skewed so maybe it's a little larger than he thinks, B) They wanted to make interesting urban backgrounds, and C) They want to put construction equipment everywhere since it's relevant to the characters' states of mind.
It's remote from a city. There's not many large buildings except stuff like a department store near the station. There's one good bookstore and Hanekawa (to avoid being at home) spends Sundays walking as the library is closed.
She will end up being friends with the other losers in the club, and if it's on the college she can also invite her childhood friend who forgot all about her.
I really need to pay a lot more attention to the art. I feel like I'm too busy reading the subs and trying to enjoy the animation to try and analyze the environment and symbolism.
I'm just stupid.
He was already becoming a senior in high school when got bitten. He was mostly done growing already. On the other hand, Karen is still growing taller after entering high school.
BEST LIST COMING THROUGH
Bird's only relevance is getting Araragi to confront his supernatural side.
She's more of a plot point than a character.
There's no reason to get yourself all ruffled up over it.
I'd rather rank the girls based on particular tasks:
Crab with long hair but later personality.
Girls I want to protect the most:
That's the animation style they chose, flat. Meant to make you focus on the characters and dialogue more than their surroundings. after all dialogue is the main focus of the whole Monogatari series. Character development IS the arc. Next time you watch an episode, pay attention to how abstract the backgrounds and settings are. the focal point is the characters actions and not really how anything appears. it's a theme that bugged me profusely (not in a negative way) when araragi first tried to help hachikuji find her old home. I liek it because it is a pretty unique way of making settings.
>You will never have sisters like Tsukihi and Karen
>Tsukihi and Karen will never be your sisters
>You will never have a life like Araragi's
When I die I'm going to start life over as Araragi in his world, maybe then I'll be happy
>Crab with long hair but later personality.
You're in luck.
Maybe not good, but she is already pretty hot normally, and her voice full of despair and constant angry stares takes it to another level.
What are you talking about? There was lots of shading in those scenes.
Faggot like you is why people call this series pretentious.
Considering how she's only appeared once I guess she's mostly busy with work. So that could be why she hasn't noticed the blonde little girl hanging around her sons room or her son occasionally coming home missing the majority of his organs.
What do you think she goes home in uniform?
Also we only see Mamaragi from the point of view from cat so maybe it's just cat lusting/being envious over Araragi's mom?
I don't think Araragi sees her as hot as that.
I think they look good. There are some instances where the color is off, but it's usually fine.
Post mouth closeups?
Handsome Araragi > Handsome Squidward
>>133939038 is monkey's mouth anon.
That might be a risky move if you don't have vampire regeneration.
>you'll never have a total cock tease lesbian friend
Figuratively best girl
Kanbaru kiss when
I don't recall him kissing Karen
<3 miss snail
Only if she stays in one place long enough and doesn't start living like Oshino, as seems to be her plan.
Kanbaru will just end up taking it by force.
It's not his first kissu so it's daijobu
Nope, it would be too lewd.
Crab straight up said "you can fool around with other girls, as long as you won't leave me". Crab doesn't care for his fidelity (or lack thereof) as long as she has some emotional real estate in his heart.
Basically giving him carte blanche to dispense the arara-D to any girl who lusts after him.
>this will never be me
WAKE ME UP
But then we would have legends of the stripe haired busty onee-san who solves mysteries and works disaster relief. Of course, that first part could be that Okitegami series and Nisio trolled the fanbase yet again.
You really think once he starts a sexual relationship with his savior, and someone someone he calls a second mother it will be just sex. Hypothetically, he ain't getting the kitty without giving an engagement ring.
Why do you think Hitagi has such a strange friendship with her, besides them being kin of the type who have public facades? She values Hanekawa as as a true friend, but she knows the people Araragi really values from the heart.
This was a great episode. All three girls are great.
In a story about a bunch of obsessively self-involved teenagers who constantly have to think up new ways to almost have sex with each other without actually doing so (Crab excluded), there's no visual room for background characters.
It is from Orokamonogatari, Sodachi Fiasco.
Oh that's right, I had forgotten
I should really start learning to read Japanese
This is what it maybe would have sounded like if Shinobu VA wasn't such a tightass and sung a Shinobu OP even though everyone else even fucking Kaiki did it.
It was already said in the replies to that page.
I don't think crab would tolerate Araragi getting his dick wet anywhere else other than her very own vagina.
