The old one is better
Biggest mistake they ever made was getting rid of this cute
As usual, Hocchan is perfect. The character is pretty fun otherwise.
She doesn't know everything, only what she knows.
Personally I find her intolerable. I personally prefer Gaen because Gaen actively enjoys being superior and generally has the bigger picture in mind.
Hanekawa is wasting her potential only taking on smaller jobs like Tsubasa Sleeping where she could be put to better use and helping more people by using her smarts to start her own network centered around herself and forever variable Araragi Koyomi.
At the very least, if Gaen cannot account for his actions, Hanekawa should some of the burden of his actions and reign him in once in a while to stop shit escalating out of control.
Tiger stripes cute as fuck and the "aww" from when she was rejected is in my top five of cute Monogatari sounds.
>sexually repressed college-age girl going overseas
There's literally no way Hanekawa won't have taken at least one dick from each country she goes to by the time she returns to Japan.
>lets Araragi fondle her tits with the intent to fuck him in Kizu
>he bitches out
Koyomi is only allowed to make love with Hanekawa
She's alright, kind of bland though, at least up until recently.
She's pretty much middle rung of the ladder compared to the other girls.
I guess I'm a Catfag? Tsubasa Tiger and the Sodachi stuff in general are my favorite individual arcs so I'd have to be one, though there are other girls I'm more fond of personally
Probably more to contrast with Ougi than anything else
I looked it up, you're talking about the girl from Okitegami Kyouko no Bibouroku, right?
Disregard what I said then >>139650647
Forgot to mention but Shaft also made promos with Horie Yui voicing the character. So yeah, it's not Hanekawa but the resemblance is purposefully done.
A girl who doesn't deserve to be in monogatari. I mean, shit, she deserves someone better than araragi. Someone who would take care of her and give in to her urges and catsonality. If she was real she'd be that girl whom you would never ever let go.
my favorite monogatari, I really liked her in Owari especially and I seem to like the character more and more as the series goes on.
I hope Tsubasa Sleeping is eventually animated.
Ougi Formula + Sodachi Riddle & Lost is my favorite part of Gatari
Long ago, I worked out enough that in highschool, some of the popular girls actually flirted with me a lot and even tried to join me during groupwork. Only reason I didn't cave in was because it didn't feel
genuine. inb4 3DPD
>Araragi absent for most of the arc
>story doesnt suffer at all
This needs to happen more often in other anime
Most stories don't write the majority of their characters as main characters.
It only works because they change the POV to a specific character that isn't Araragi and then finish it off with their view of Araragi.
So Tsubasa's view of Araragi was of a badass motherfucker who appears in the nick of time to slay her flaming pussy while Kanbaru sees him as a wonderful source of life advice in a hard time where she's lost and confused.
Araragi is at his best when viewed at by other people, his two best moments have been when viewed as a hero and as an idol.
Though for all this tl;dr, NisiO's best characters are actually the ones we don't know shit about. The Exorcists are pretty much his best written characters.
You know so little of them but what you see and know of them means so much more.
>You know so little of them but what you see and know of them means so much more.
Kaiki and Kagenui are cool I guess
Meme and Gaen come across more like plot devices than characters though, especially Meme
>Kaiki and Kagenui are cool I guess
Understatement, and it's a shame that Kagenui didn't get more considering how she started as a foil to Kaiki.
>Meme and Gaen come across more like plot devices than characters though, especially Meme
I still think they're cool, but they definitely act more like mentor figures than actual characters.
>"worst written and most preachy"
>oh no miss perfect has emotions
>lets spend 3 episodes watching her mope and put a bandaid on in in the last episode
>there aren't even any good jokes or banter because you're supposed to be totally invested in this serious drama
>i hope you're ready for the exact same arc two more times
It could have been okay once.
I voted second, but I'd have gone for Bake if it weren't for Koi.
If you're asking whether Araragi and Sodachi had makeup sex then no, nothing that big.
Oh how I wish we got some doujins.
They probably study maths together all the time in college.
I'll keep my hopes up for next comiket surprises.
For now on pixiv there are only 3 not scanned (the one with better art apparently from an artist that only does faceless old men rape doujin) and one posted two days ago in korean and looks like a not well drawn rough sketch.
>and looks like a not well drawn rough sketch.
good enough for me, I'm used to it with some non-/a/ stuff I like already anyway
Tsubasa won't save herself, and she won't let herself be saved, then what can he do?
She's too strong and self-reliant, so when she fucks up, she goes full-on unstoppable psychopath serial killer (well, serial energy drainer). Her mind is so powerful, she can create and bend oddities to her will.
It's said that the great Taoist sages don't die because they close themselves off in perfection, and death can find no crack on them by which it can grip them. Tusbasa is the same in regards to love: she has no human flaws, no weaknesses by which he could come to grips with her. She's never defenseless, and she's always right.
Perfect body, perfect mind, perfect soul.
At the very least he doesn't seem too bothered by how he looks when he and Hachikuji take turns raping each other in public, so there's that.
You don't say such things without a pandalink, anon.
Glasses and braids Cat is the sexiest, short bedhead Cat is the cutest
>Literally no fanart of Braid Hanekawa with Tiger Stripes
This is the best version of Hanekawa
maybe they'll throw you a bone in Koyomi Reverse with imouto Sodachi
I'm not sure if there actually is any fanservice there in the LNs but I'm sure Shaft will work some into it regardless, as with every other scene involving Koyomi and his sisters
>Is this something that is getting the Kizu treatment and hasn't happened yet?
No, Okitegami Kyoko was made into a short TV series instead which was quite enjoyable (and it's for the better in my opinion, since there's nothing really that would warrant an anime adaptation in particular). Heard it was received quite well, too.
I am lucky to have Cat as my waifu.
Hijacking this topic cause I need a bigger image to this thumbnail. Somebody please, be nice and give me a bigger image for
Here comes the airplane you helpless fuck.
>Here comes the airplane you helpless fuck.
You know, I could have just Google image searched this. And there was a link built into 4chan for this too. To 2 different image search databases. But it never crossed my mind when asking. Thanks anon.
Hanekawa is cute and would make a great wife but I'm quite fond of Tsukihi personally.
I like her but only when she doesn't get any more than 15% of the screentime in any given arc. She is very good as a supporting character but she's boring when she's the central figure.
