She somehow is, considering her immense popularity.
I'll never understand it, though. Not only is her personality awful, but she's barely even a compelling character compared to the rest of the cast. The author couldn't even find a way to fit her into 3/4 of the story.
Is this spooky chick suppose to be likeable? Because she is.
If I met a really cute female version of myself I'd fuck her.
Bitchnigga if you don't think a cheeky girl who pokes fun at you and allows you to feel human instead of just some apparatus to make things happen then I don't know what the fuck you want in a human mate.
Maybe you'd enjoy goats, they don't talk that much.
I bet OP likes submissive girls who allow him to feel like he's in charge and not a beta faggot.
Or obsessed in love without any real reason girls because they require no efforts in relationships.
Whatever man, I'll still fuck Ougi either way.
While she is my favorite I can understand how others would think less. I just think she has the most interesting personality and shows affection the best
crabs cute, even when shes cunty she has redeemable qualities
It's a gradual process:
>"Senjougahara. Did you get fat?" I said.
>Taking a break, I inadvertently said it.
>Although I haven’t watched any comedy shows recently, I could still describe the image in the next instant, like throwing a party, a fancy cake flew towards my face.
>I don’t know if it’s for the guests' convenience in eating it or if it was just designed that way, but this piece of fancy cake was much smaller than imagined, it could be said that it was mini-sized, so very luckily, my face and clothes were not dirtied: the cake was directly enveloped by my mouth.
>It was a very direct method of eating.
>"Huh? You said something that you shouldn’t have said? Araragi-kun."
>Senjougahara’s eyes opened very wide.
>Her deadpan look was very frightening.
>"Girls don’t get fat."
>"Oh ... ... is that so?"
>"Yes. Girls only grow."
>Senjougahara placed the fork in her hand and started exaggeratingly eating sections of the cake one after another.
>"This is not getting fat, this is just growing."
>What an amazing explanation.
>"If I keep eating lots and lots like this, then soon I will become two people."
>"Scary in many ways."
>That explanation is scary, having two of you is even more scary.
>"Say, you were too thin before, so if you were to add a little bit of weight now, the extra flesh would be very obvious."
>"Don’t say the flesh will be very obvious."
>Senjougahara was poised, holding the fork.
>In front of me, her boyfriend.
>... ... Something worth mentioning, if it were the Senjougahara from some time ago, then certainly, instead of throwing cake from the beginning, she would have mercilessly attacked me by directly throwing the fork at me. Realizing this point, I felt that she has calmed a lot from before.
>But certainly I can’t say that she has become very gentle.
She was supposed to be a cunt because she had crab issues.
She gets better overall later but still bosses Ararararagi around.
I dunno I kinda like to argue about useless shit jokingly all the time so I liked her.
Would date but probably not marry.
Stop posting, Sodachi. Do your math homework.
Now accusing unrelated others. Look how you've fallen.
If they are the same, why is she punching herself?
It's kind of funny how polls show that regular Hanekawa is higher on the list, close to the top, and Black Hanekawa is near the bottom, despite people seemingly liking the Meddling Cat better (though the two are merged anyway so it doesn't matter). Despite there being about the same levels or more in fanart production for White Hanekawa.
It's like how people claim to like Dark Sakura better than regular Sakura, but the normal Sakura is in the top 10 in international polls of all TM characters.
Fushigi desu ne.
well she's literally the best girl in the entire medium
She's not even the best girl in her own show.
don't say things that are wrong please
I never did.
Monkey is a best and you know it.
according to the official list, she's third best tho
Don't worry she's irrelevant after that volume and has little cameos in other ones.
So you won't see her much, she's doesn't matter to the story. Hell she doesn't even matter much to Araragi.
The only thing retarded here is you trying to form a coherent sentence
>He's saying that she was written to be a bitch
Alright let's assume you meant that because like I said it's even dumber
You know that half of Bake was romance with her, there's also ep12 and Koi
Imagine actually believing "she was written to be a bitch" after you watched more than ep1 which is really the only time she actually was a bitch.
I said few times already that people who say Crab is a cunt didn't pay any attention, but this is solid proof.
And I'd ignore this believing it's bait if there weren't loads of people who unironically say Monogatari makes no sense and have no idea what they watched, you're one of them.
I really don't understand that people can watch Monogatari and not understand that characters tend to not be 100% serious in terms of what they're saying all the time. A large part of the characters is in fact in the kinds of jokes they make, but apparently people sincerely think that Monkey wants to fuck Ararararagi.
funfact: in Bake Senjou has a verbal pattern where she ends her every hostility with affection
I rewatched the show too many times
After they hook up*, of course
Does she know her boyfriend is out getting:
1. Sex proposals and moneyshot poses from underclassmen.
2. Foot dom from a cute little girl.
3. Climbed all over by another underclassman.
4. Deals to fondle the large breasts of a classmate.
5. Visiting another classmate while in her pajamas.
6. Gets piled on every morning in bed by his sisters.
I'm not a fan of Senjohara but damn wtf is up with this shit?
Just saw this arc last night. Suddenly I like Snail and take back what I said on yesterday's thread about her being in the top 3 worst.
monogatari has best eyes of all anime
replace cat with snail and put doll in the shit category and you're golden
but I love doll and her feet
also cat has more depth than snail
>OP can't handle the bantz
I vote monkey for second best, since she's smart enough to realize who the true best girl is.
Never noticed that. Very observant, anon.
She does know. She trusts him, but reaffirms that if he fucks up she'll put him in the ground.
Araragi doesn't even see her as a girlfriend. He was put on the spot and felt like it was his duty to help this girl. And if it meant to pretend to be her boyfriend then so be it.
They just don't have the chemistry that he has with the other girls.
>monkey/snake/catfag in denial
>they confess their love to eachother in ep12(?) of Bake
walks her home gently
>they're still dating in Hana
imagine how clingy gf monkey would be
crab lets arargi have distance, is stable and levelheaded, loyal and she doesnt have daddy issues. so in others a great partner for araragi
at this point in the series chemistry is reduced to more screen time together. the amount of screen time araragi and senjougahara have had since the nise epilogue is less than 3 minutes
She seems like a real teaser.
I'm very into that.
maybe her parents were nudists and taught the lifestyle to her
what do you mean "makes a cameo"
I wonder how I'd feel towards Cat if Nekomonogatari Kuro wasn't such a piece of shit. It was honestly a bore to watch, as we already fucking knew everything that happened through earlier implications and it being pretty similar to her arc in Bake anyway.
That scene in Bake where they're in the park talking to each other about shit really fucked with me for some reason. I have no clue why. I think it was like, the third episode.
It spiraled me into a deep depression about two years ago. I have yet to get out of it.
Whenever I see crab posted I become extremely depressed.
the question remains, why isnt crab gay for monkey?
bat and hanekawa arent into girls afaik
Because Kanbaru dropped nuts at the worst possible moment.
At the moment when Senjougahara would have fallen in love with anyone who would have saved her. Kanbaru backed off and did nothing to save her.
If Kanbaru had been that little bit more confident in herself that one day in middle school when Senjougahara threatened her into silence, she honestly would have won the Senjo end.
So, have they ever been seen eating eggs on screen?
select all squares with turkeys
Makes me wonder how people finish the entire series without dropping it and despise Crab so autistically
And by autistically I mean it's always mindless shitposting, I haven't seen a single proper post explaining why Crab is such a cunt or an awful character besides over exaggerating what she says teasingly or ignoring the context
She's not best girl, but she's still great. Maybe third place
That's some pretty
Out of genuine curiosity, why does everyone love Bat so much? She's near the top of pretty much everyone's lists, and while I do find her cute and likable, I don't enjoy watching her as much as I do the others.
She has a pleasant personality and significant character development.
That's why she's near the top for most.
I don't know why people put her at the very top though, I think they are just lolicons.
>I think they are just lolicons.
Mostly this. After that bath scene in Nise her popularity exploded.
I mean she's a fun character but nothing about her stands out compared to most of the cast.
Monkey is okay at first but she's gets boring after a while.
She was excellent in Hana when she actually had real development and existed as an actual character instead of "Annoying pervert girl."
Okay I'll take this one.
She has a fun personality, part of it being lewd but she's also clever and playful with it.
She is loyal and a bro. She stands with Araragi and crab no matter what.
Her genki exterior which is fun to watch covers a brooding and fragile ego which she sometimes reveals which makes you want to hug her and tell her everything will be alright.
It contrasts nicely with her physical and sporty side making some gap moe.
She's also super hot and has a killer VA.
Cat is for high-test alphas that want good breeding material.
Monkey is for slightly lower-test alphas that want a good fuckbuddy and gym partner, but not breeding material.
Crab is for betas that want their balls wrapped with a rubber band, stepped on, and lit on fire while being called useless. The worst girl.
>not wanting to breed with monkey
Everyone knows the Gaen line is strong anon.
A caring mother is the best mother. Tomboys are the opposite of caring, they're competitive. They'd try to one-up you in bed and do crazy positions and techniques, hence why I said she'd make the best fuckbuddy, not mother. Look how Cat takes care of everyone else, then look at how Monkey wants to rape Bee and s̶e̶c̶o̶n̶d̶ ̶w̶o̶r̶s̶t̶ ̶g̶i̶r̶ Bird instead of caring for them. Please pay attention, /a/non.
Sawashiro and tomboy sells her, but also >>133978284
I mean, we saw her punch a supernatural armour to protect Ararararararagi, she would genuinely die for her friends.
She's also more clever than she let people know.
>mfw I saw Sawashiro did
No wonder monkey is best girl
Why do people think that Senjougahara is a "cunt"? I don't understand, she's a loving girlfriend.
She's always paying attention to important dates to Araragi, always trying to help him with his work, or whenever he's in trouble in general. She always GOES out of her way for him, even though he does for her just as well. But the point is, "cunt"? Seriously?
Yes if you rattle her she'll get bitchy and sarcastic, but that's your own fault for doing so. In general, her relationship with Araragi is just soft mockery and lots of love from what I've always seen. I rather hate the tsundere type, but Senjougahara isn't even one, she has too many understandable qualities and logic/reasoning to be so.
That being said I think she's pretty cute. Bat/Crab/Cat >>>
Well, the first arc was about her so obviously. After that the anime focused more on the oddities/other girls than Senjougahara. Yet I don't believe it had the "hey, don't forget about me!" feel at all. She truly interacted with other characters, the story just wasn't focused on her this time.
Same with her going out of her way to ask Kaiki for help in solving the Sengoku incident etc etc; ... I really don't think she's anywhere as bad as people here envision her to be.
Gahara is loving and devoted towards Araragi, but she is still a pretty selfish person in other ways. For example, at the end of Bake, when everyone went looking for Shinobu when Araragi asked then, Hitagi was the only one who refused simply because she hates kids. Or in Owari 3, she refuses to listen to any of Hanekawa's explanation of what's going on with Oshino simply because she doesn't like Oshino, even though that's important information she should be relaying to Araragi.
It's nothing shockingly awful, but it does rub me the wrong way. Every time I think I can warm up to her, she does something that puts me off.
Honestly, if anything that seems more of a humane characteristic of hers. I understand why others would view it as bad, but like you said its nothing horrible.
It gives flavour to her character.
>Hitagi was the only one who refused simply because she hates kids
What? She very clearly stated the reason was because setting up for the school festival (that Hanakawa asked her to) was the best thing she could do to help the current situatio (helping Hanakawa). Pretty sure that scene wasn't supposed to be interpreted as her lying her way out of something because she dislikes kids.
It is, though I guess what bothers me is that Nisio doesn't really treat her flaws as flaws, especially compared to how hard he is on his other characters. Everything about Senjougahara after Crab is essentially treated as a "quirk" rather than something that's supposed to be a real problem.
im not a lolicon myself but shes at the top of my list. I think its mainly because of her unique relationship with Araragi and how they're bound to each other. she can also turn into a milf
Yeah, because Shinobu didn't bother protecting him because of petty jealousy.
>Hey Kanbaru, I'm your mother's sister who has never shown up in your life and hasn't even visited you once since she died.
>I have some spooky shit I need you to take care off so if you could hop to it that would be great
I don't know, maybe she knows everything and isn't retarded?
If you don't realize that Crab is the best then you are missing the point of the entire show.
I thought the point was she wasn't the best but after Araragi settled for her it turned out to be fine and a successful relationship grew out of it.
Sounds like you are the one missing the whole point.
He should have went for monkey after he graduated.
Sawashiro's good, but not even on the same level as Chiwa Saito. Fucking diamonds every time she opens her mouth.
My observation skills still need some work.
Well, what better place for a series to get bad than the start of a new season?
How come SHAFT is waiting to animate Koyomimonogatari, anyway? I guess it would be awkward to animate it before Kizu?
But it got good again this season.
And seems like it started, but I'm waiting a full doujin.
Wow Shinobu you fucking retard
She doesn't qualify as a vampire, and thus doesn't burn.
She provided the magic, but Araragi was steering. He got distracted thinking about Hachikuji which is why they ended up then.
>watched Tsubasa Tiger and Mayoi Jingainchi today
Didn't like monogatari much but I'm glad I gave it a second chance
I guess some like her
But shes nothing against Post Tiger Cat, she is a godess
Even ougi got btfo by itty bitty kitty titties
>posting the jpeg
Regardless, Tsubasa Tiger and Mayoi Jingainchi are elder god tier stories
Damnit I cried at that scene Cat has the one of the most relateable stories
But anon, how do you explain monkey rocking her ponytail?
Reminder that Araragi and Crab can't have sex because of Shinobu.
