Crab. She is the best fictional girl ever created. Ok, the best mortal fictional girl ever created.
Kissshot is the best immortal.
monkey >= crab >>>>> literal trash >>>>> cat
Formally asking permission to break the rules as well.
The one that can do weirdly arousing things like this.
There is no better female character than Crab in monogatari.
Cat, but only after she got a haircut and dumped the glasses.
So then why didn't you choose kissshot?
But I have. That's why I know that she pales in comparison to most of the girls in the series. But yes, it was an oversimplification. She also lies to and cheats on her boyfriend, doesn't get angry when he cheats back, but does when he casually spends time with women.
Cat all day everyday
there once was a time when gahara had the best bantz with rararagi-san, but then they dumped her in favor of snail, so crabfags have literally no excuse
Don't follow the rules. Follow your heart.
> She also lies to and cheats on her boyfriend
Shinobu shouldn't try to make herself look like a portable victual.
I would marry Cat in heartbeat and have a dozen children with her.
Not even best sister.
Karen is a cute, lovable tomboy while Tsukihi is a violent bitch. I think the superior choice is obvious.
well everybody's entitled to their wrong opinions
I don't know. Just haters.
Kaiki doesn't give a fuck about Crab now.
Crab hates him and loves Araragi like crazy.
It should be obvious for anyone who read all the text cards in Koi and watch the show thoughtful.
if we were born from the same mother we wouldn't be more brothers than we are now
Karen is plenty violent and has no brakes because she's an idiot. Tsukihi is better at banter, has womanly charm in spades, and is very caring for her friends and siblings even if she doesn't make a fanfare out of it every time.
Both of them are pretty violent, but Tsukihi probably doesn't know better. Getting injured means nothing to her because she'll instantly recover. She probably doesn't even get that it's not the same for other people
She was hot when she had long hair and let it down. She's been ugly ever since she got it cut and this stripe shit just makes it worse. Never before has a haircut done so much damage to a character design.
After what happened in Nise, it's got to be Karen.
She lied to Araragi in order to save him but she wasn't unfaithful.
The harder question would be which hairstyle is her best.
It's probably either Tsuki or Otori
Watch the arc one more time. Or two times.
She explained herself very clear. She is not happy with lie but Araragi is her everything. And she'd do anything to save him.
> used by Araragi
More like blessed goods
Did you? Even Kaiki was calling her out on her bullshit. Araragi didn't need to be in the dark. He just needed to accept it. Crab was afraid of conflict with her boyfriend. That's why she lied.
>annoying, autistic mary sue who has the same arc 3 times and still doesn't develop
>2d simulation of 3dpd, complete with cowardice, lies, and neurotic behavior
>tomboy who is depressive but tries not to bother other people with it
Gee. I wonder what the choice is.
> Crab was afraid of conflict with her boyfriend. That's why she lied.
Special for you
>2d simulation of 3dpd, complete with cowardice, lies, and neurotic behavior
Nobody in real life behaves like Crab, and aside from neurotic behavior, Crab doesn't behave like that either.
>/v/-tier reaction images
Fuck off, Snake
You're not fooling anyone
>Nobody in real life behaves like Crab, and aside from neurotic behavior, Crab doesn't behave like that either.
Oh boy, you haven't met one of my friends then. She is like an exact copy in personality.
I wou- Damn, I just can't say it.
Maybe in a different series, but not in this one
Oddity Cat > long-haired Crab > long-haired Cat > short-haired Cat > Monkey > short-haired Crab > shit >>>>>>>>> short-haired, black and white Cat
Crab > Monkey > Oddity Cat > Cat
Crab > Monkey > Cat
Monkey really grew on me, she's great.
Bat is my real choice.
She doesn't know anything,
Araragi's the one who knows
Cat > Monkey > literally any and every other Monogatari character >>>>>>>>> Crab
What exactly is it about Gahara that people find 3DPD/realistic? I'm not seeing it. How the hell could someone argue that her scene at the beginning of Nise, or her contacting Kaiki at all in SS, or the bootleg Ross & Rachel schtick they've got going on in Musubi were "realistic"? Not talking about whether you like or dislike her as a character either so don't go into that shit
i want to say kaiki wouldn't sell himself out but then i remember this
Pretty sure the latest chapter of Ougi Dark objectively proved who best girl is.
Latest chapter just enforced it.
All the specialists are too fashionable for me.
I hope Tarable translates Koyomi Reverse too after he's done with Ougi Dark, I know that he wants to skip ahead to Suruga Bonehead because of Ougi but Koyomi Reverse is relevant to Ougi too
I love the fact the man is giving Ougi the love she deserves and I hope he does both. I would rather Zoku be done first as well but I am happy either way.
>>Kanbaru saying how she was getting concerned over how close Koyomi & Karen were getting back in Hana
>couple years later the two are living alone together for an extended period of time
There's no way they didn't get carried away and fuck atleast once.
he's too pure of an onii-chan to do anything like that
The only way they didn't is if Bird and Bee keep getting in each other's way
I can think of at least one time he absolutely would have been balls-deep in one of them if the other hadn't stopped it
Occult Research Club story fucking when?
nisio better fucking deliver
Always love seeing pictures I don't have saved.
They deserve more screen-time, especially Kagenui. Dat Kansai ben is pure sex.
Movie cat was pretty good. Excellent use of budget.
>frail ass skinny build with barely any musculature
>Calls bird chest swollen tits
You're fucking retarded m8. Kaiki would get all the pussy he wanted anyway because of his personality and the size of his
I always thought snake was worst girl and figured that nadeko medusa would confirm it. but after watching it and hitagi end I like her a lot more.
so snake isn't worst girl anymore. I don't know how to cope with this
Nadeko Snake had 0 development for her, it just happened to have her in it. Medusa and End were about her true character and her development, so it really brought her into her own.
>Shit character who's only trait is being cute
>Nisio actually uses this as a major plot point during her arc and develops her into a full character
I haven't thought about my girl order since my revelation, and because I'm still watching what's been animated
is all the snake hate really just from people who are judging her bake character?
>is all the snake hate really just from people who are judging her bake character?
I still don't like her that much after Nadeko Medusa/Hitagi End. She deluded herself and turned into a Snake God over the smallest shit ever and got coddled the fuck out of it in the end.
HanaKana's voice acting in that classroom scene was good though.
>As far as I can tell the only people who like her in SS are the people who think that the characters in this series are realistic somehow
I was about to post how I thought her personality in SS was realistic but I was called out before it happened.
I would be fine with any of the Gataris. There's not a single one I would be totally opposed to.
The first one to show attraction to you is the one you should pursue.
And so if I ever ended up in Ararararagi's shoes, I would still die a lonely, miserable virgin.
yea I didn't like that second part, but the other stuff makes up for it
people were either too soft on her or too hard on her, what she really needed was to be hard on herself.
hell yea that was amazing
I think they may be talking about Math. They better not be talking about Math.
Math only gets better through the rest of the novels though. And if it was math he would say something like after you watch the rest of the already animated series.
Maybe he's talking about Hitagi in Musubi? Though it's really just more of the same shit she's already pulled, so if someone didn't care before I don't think they would care now.
I personally don't think either of those things equate to pitching a fit about someone letting a homeless girl stay in their parents' house on a scale of shittiness, but whatever.
>Every character conclusion in musubi can be spinned as runing the girl
What's wrong with what Kanbaru or Sodachi are doing? Nadeko's doing what everyone assumed she'd be doing too
Araragi lied to her. He didn't tell her about Sodachi because he is a retard.
> By my standards, lending an eave(1) to a childhood friend—whom I didn’t at all think of as the opposite sex—was just barely safe, but by Hitagi’s standards it seemed it was completely out of the question.
> Well, in this case I was in the wrong. I was absolutely awful. It was the worst thing I did in all my teenage years.
>Araragi is a retard
This summarizes his life completely.
>implying crab never kept things from cuckaragi either
Not really, I meant more that he'll consider another girl as "worst girl" as he goes along, whichever one it is.
Or I guess I should phrase it like this; he will eventually have a girl that he considers worse than the others so she'll be his worst girl.
You realise that Kaiki only solved the Nadeko issue due to making similar mistakes Koyomi was making towards Nadeko that he made towards Senjou years before? Post Sodachi instead or something for your point, not the character who is functionally "Koyomi if he failed at everything in life"
>She lied because she loves him.
She lied because she had no faith in what he was doing
even though he's done the same thing all series
even though he did the exact same thing at the beginning of the series when he helped her in the first place and it's why she fell for him in the first place, she says exactly this when explaining why she can't directly berate Araragi even
It's a shitty relationship on both ends.
had some seemingly self-destructive choices like rebuying her abuse house, and also the fact that she threatened to kill herself. She became an awesome tsunbro though.
Nadeko is really doing what we expected,
even better considering she published 3 manga already even if flops.
had a pretty perfect ending, though surprising that she is smart enough to get into medical school.
>Araragi wasn't accomplishing anything but going to the temple and getting fucked up and he tried absolutely nothing to change up his plans.
Like I said, he does the same thing all series. She can't argue shit when it's because of this stuff that she fell for him in the first place, end of story.
Not that you can hold this against Gahara but Tadatsuru confirms in Mayoi Hell that Araragi would've just straight up overpowered Nadeko eventually (since Ougi was trying to speed up his vampirization and all, and the only negative effect this'd actually have is speeding up the events of the story really)
>but Tadatsuru confirms in Mayoi Hell that Araragi would've just straight up overpowered Nadeko eventually
He didn't say this at all. There's no indication that a full vampire Araragi could overpower Nadeko.
Sodachi's got a stable job and living, compared to before she's at an all time high in her life.
With Kanbaru, she's just a fitness doctor. Sports Science isn't the same shit as Neuroscience or whatever. Also she had something that inspired her to do it, she didn't just decide to start being studious.
She was diverting the topic that Kaiki was trying to talk about: Why doesn't she just tell Araragi that she asked for his help?
This is so that he doesn't have to keep being careful in moving about the town since there's a chance Araragi would see him then try to get him out of the town or ruin his plans.
Mayoi Hell 10, Tadatsuru says this in regards to Hachikuji saying to Araragi that he could've saved Nadeko eventually
>“I concur with her opinion in regards to that, Araragi-kun. In fact, I’m sure that’s what the ‘enemy’ would have preferred to happen—not so much the part about saving Nadeko Sengoku, but the bit about taking more time. You could say that it’s precisely because Kaiki interfered and threw the plan off course that the ball ended up in my court. Originally, I believe you were meant to continue fighting Nadeko Sengoku for a longer period of time. You were meant to continue turning yourself into a vampire in your attempts to save her. My entry into the fray was insurance for Oshino, but it was likely insurance for the enemy, as well,” says Tadatsuru from beside me.
A stable job
as a public servant and accountant, not as a glorious pure mathematician, a job with actual soul even if no money. How is she going to become the new coming of Euler as an accountant?
> Why doesn't she just tell Araragi that she asked for his help?
Araragi hates Kaiki. He would never let him complete the job. That is what she doesn't tell.
Araragi also thinks that Kaiki was her first crush.
Would he really, though? I always got the impression that Hitagi exaggerated how badly Araragi would react because she felt guilty that she used to have a crush on Kaiki. He sure doesn't like Kaiki, but I don't think he would've flipped the kind of shit she was implying. The situation was just uncomfortable for her so she didn't want to run it by him.
>“In the end, that con artist may have been the one to save Sengoku-san, but if he hadn’t gotten involved, perhaps it would have taken a bit longer, but you could have saved her in the end. I believe that.”
They're talking about his vampire powers getting stronger, the two fighting and Araragi eventually "saving" her, what else would they be referring to but Nadeko being defeated?
Can a mathanon tell us if the math in this pic is legit?
Ever since he tried to get Tsukihi killed he doesn't tolerate his presence, yeah. Before then he didn't like the guy but was open to talking with the guy atleast, an episode of Koyomimonogatari covered that much.
Hachikuji said that, not Tadatsuru. She has no basis for saying that, she's just advocating for him because Team Araragi.
Also, she probably means that he could've reached out to her heart somehow, not physically beat her. I highly doubt anyone but Kiss-Shot could compete with a literal god.
Yes, it's an introduction to the fourier transform, which is an application of complex exponential and basic calculus very commonly used in engineering and computer science.
I know Hachikuji said that, I quoted that bit because you were saying that they weren't talking about Araragi beating Nadeko even though they were. Tadatsuru's response to what Hachikuji said was what I posted before that.
>I highly doubt anyone but Kiss-Shot could compete with a literal god.
Meme suplexes a crab god in the second episode. Gods aren't "gods" in this context, Shrine Goddess Nadeko was just another oddity.
Come on guys. Hitagi loves Araragi as much as Kissshot does.
Hitagi was mad at him when he lied about another woman. It's normal.
Kissshot was stupid and emotional in Shinobu Mail and didn't want to talk with Seishirou. She put Araragi's life in danger.
Those aren't really comparable situations. In Shinobu Mail Araragi was the one who took the initiative to risk his life and show Shinobu that he cared, which was necessary partially because he was, and still is, being a purposefully dense faggot about her.
A more comparable situation was her deception in Kizu and Araragi was, rightfully, pissed about that.
Hitagi is basically a normal good but slightly selfish person, while some other characters are almost saints who would sacrifice themselves for people they barely know without hesitating.
Funny you mentioned Kanbaru when Kanbaru is one of the people she treats like absolute garbage. Never even apologized for the shit she put her through and proceeded to use her to play mindgames with Koyomi as soon as they made up.
Shinobu Mail was Araragi's own fault. Araragi was extremely insecure when it came to Seishiro and Shinobu, who is directly affected by Araragi's emotional state, was influenced as a result.
I give you 0/10 for that level of banter.
Hitagi has never done anything for Kanbaru period, though. You can't claim that Hitagi is loving towards Kanbaru when all she's ever done is say "oh yeah, Kanbaru is important to me" but we've literally never seen anything to back it up.
Granted, that's partly because Nisio never shows them interacting, but she's made some pretty shitty comments about Kanbaru in the commentary tracks, so I'm not going to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Lol hitagi doesn't give a shit about monkey or Araragi's family.
You are locked in the gym storage shed and see this
What do you do?
I untie her and help her dress, after which she'll make light of it and witty observations, then we'll become friends and become monsters and I will snub her in favor of some other monster ice queen bitch I saved.
Cover my eyes and stumble towards her to untie her. While doing that I accidentally grab a breast and apologize profusely.
>Introducing a new specialist and killing him before he gets to do
It's criminal how the characters with the sweetest designs barely get screen-time. This is not okay.
I've read Mayoi Hell. But I'm still not satisfied.
I want my Occult Research/Specialists story Nisio. Please.
Can you blame her? I'd fuck Kaiki too no regrets.
>She must have done a good job sealing the wound, as I’m able to articulate myself with miraculous clarity, and upon hearing those words, a smile finally returns to Ougi-chan’s face.
>This is another first.
>It’s a kind of smile I’ve never seen on her face until now—an awkward smile, one that seems somehow bashful.
>“Honestly… You’re such a fool.”
>“Now, that’s not true.”
>Then comes a voice that makes me doubt my ears.
>It belongs to a third person, neither me nor Ougi-chan. When I look in the direction of the voice—that is, towards the open door that Ougi-chan came through when she entered the room—I have to doubt my eyes, too.
>At first I thought that maybe Tsukihi had come back, but the person standing there doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to that sister of mine, an adorable junior high school girl at least as far as appearances go—they’re in a Hawaiian shirt.
>It’s a middle-aged man wearing a Hawaiian shirt.
>“You’re nobody to be scoffed at. So you finally fought for yourself, huh? I take my hat off to you, Araragi-kun.”
>So quips the man as he chews on an unlit cigarette.
>So quips Meme Oshino.
OWARI 3 WHEN, SHAFT?
The most protectable smile.
>“You’re a lifesaver… Oshino.”
>I say that in the place of the speechless Ougi-chan—though if I’m saying it “in the place” of Ougi-chan, I’m essentially just conveying my own feelings.
>“Nah, I didn’t save you. You saved yourself, Araragi-kun.
>After hearing that…
>I finally reach my limit, lose the strength to support my own body weight, and crumple to the ground. Ougi-chan, forced to bear the full brunt of that weight, lets out a small “gweh.” Perhaps that utterly unattractive and true-to-life groan is proof of her existence—of her substance.
>In the moment her true form came to light, she gained substance.
>Ougi Oshino became Ougi Oshino.
>And thus, the youth of Koyomi Araragi came to an end. The curtains closed on those days in which he would sacrifice himself to save someone else, those days in which he believed neglecting himself equated to cherishing others, those days marked by weak and frail self-absorption, that era of gentle lies.
That's a pretty good way to close the loop on RRRG's arc, honestly.
For me, it was to be Hanekawa.
Not only is she beautiful, bth with long hair and glasses or short hair and no glasses, but I love her positive personality. Yeah, she might have fucked up by bottling up all that stress, or not looking for her frend to help her, but despite everything, she kept trying to do her best, and with a beautiful smile on her face. I also love how she is willing to help people even if they don't deserve it, is not afraid of calling people out who are hurting her friends, and how she sees everyone as equals
>Is ponytail monkey best monkey?
I like original short-haired monkey
Hanekawa >= Shinobu >>>>>>> rest > piss and shit > Crab
>Cat for fondling in the storage shed.
>Crab for gazing at the starry night sky.
>Monkey for playful sexual banter.
I still want this calendar for Ougi and Kaiki Shinobu.
Can we talk about how late teen Bat, is clearly the best iteration of the best girl?
>all of the specialists
I'd rather pic related that half tucked hawaiian shirt, that one has some charm but it's more about how it's worn
Pretty much this. There aren't any awful characters, just some that need more fleshing out.
If you wanted a bigger version of that picture.
