Let's talk about best gatari. Why is she so best?
I've been waiting to repost this
>unironically liking a hook-nosed shekeleer named kikey
Bat>Snail>Monkey=Kaiki>Spoogy> all those middle-tiers like Doll, Sisters, Crab
POWERGAP OF SHIT TASTE
That stupid fucking girl in the hat who knows everything god I can't think of a single positive thing to say about her and I will definitely fight anyone atrocious enough to claim she's best girl EVEN IN JEST
She's not even best in her own arc
I can understand everyone, from monkeyfags to snakefags, but I will never understand crabfags
The girl is an insecure retard that spouts reddit memes and boasts and edgelord attitude, while also fucking 40 year old dudes
Go back to your containment board shariablue.
Yes, OP she is best girl by far. She even gave MC a show because he saved her. She actually did something to repay this shit is unheard of in anime.
Reminder that Hanekawa is forever alone while Araragi is plowing sweet crab, imouto and vamploli pussy on the regular.
She keeps getting better and better. Now she is a fully pacifist Big Boss with oddity subordinates, a team of body doubles, and a werewolf girl who is wet for her.
Nisio might just have her remain alone though, because he has a fetish for making the characters he likes suffer.
Cat form persona is only achieved because of Hanekawa, so if you love Black Hanekawa, you love both.
It's why you now have slightly slitted eyes when she gets serious about stuff now.
w-would you really marry me, anon?
Enjoy your Japanese character development
her latent tendencies are frightening but she is voiced by kana hanazawa
She had two good "bantz" scenes in the entire series. Once at the very beginning of Mayoi Snail and once at the very beginning of Nise. Yes I've read Hitagi Rendezvous too. I don't even dislike Gahara but it's not her strong point comparitively, almost every other girl in this series has better banter.
Kiss is the only one who has an opening that is basically Araragi's declaration of eternal love to her.
>Cucks the Fire Sisters
I dunno man, Nisio's intent on making it a running joke on how abnormally close Koyomi is with them, especially Karen. Koyomi & Karen lived alone together for a significant period of time too. This is Karen at the end of Owari:
>“Nii-chan, Nii-chan. We won’t be able to flirt with each other anymore after I become a high schooler next month, so let’s try feeding each other mouth-to-mouth one last time!”
and according to Kanbaru in Suruga Devil they only get closer in the future.
On the flipside Senjougahara cuts short almost every instance of time spent with Koyomi to go hang out with her dad which makes it even I guess.
Crab & Cat are literally the only ones who think that she's after rrragi at all. She's just his bro, in Tsuki he even equates her to being like a third sister to him.
>in Tsuki he even equates her to being like a third sister to him.
>like a sister
And we all know how much Araragi loves his sisters.
Fact: if monkey isn't in your top 3 you have shit taste
tfw I have 0 pictures of just monkey and snail
He seemed more mature for the most part in Musubi, except not changing much at all in regards to Hanekawa + pretty much backpedalling in regards to Hachikuji, it pissed me off.
>no good Tiger Stripe Hanekawa figure
I want to kill nisio for destroying Senjou hair
Actually besides Hanekawa they all look worse then before
>Gahara and Hanekawa cut their hair in Nise
>Kanbaru and Nadeko grow it out in Nise
>Koyomi calls Kanbaru and Nadeko cute during Nise
>Gahara and Hanekawa talk about growing their hair out again at the end of Nise
Re-reading Suruga Monkey and Nadeko Snake has given me the weirdest feeling that when people compare Hanekawa to Gaen that they're doing it wrong.
Araragi always seems to refer to Kanbaru in "various degress of Hanekawa" and how similar yet dissimilar they are.
I honestly think Kanbaru is actually the kind of person Hanekawa probably wanted to be and Araragi can see that.
is "degrees of hanekawa" a SI unit?
that shouldnt make her worse than other characters
It shouldn't make a difference. My favorite character has the least of everything and I love her.
Monkey is fantastic too, I just wish hana adaptation was more interesting and owari 2 had more monkey less gaen.
I'm pretty fucking sure Nisio intentionally writes her to be aggravating, there are too many chapters that consist entirely of her dumping exposition. I want to like her more than I do.
I don't actually like Meme either, he's more plot device than he is character.
recently rewatched hana and I really liked it but I think rouka talked way too much
>I'm pretty fucking sure Nisio intentionally writes her to be aggravating
Yes. This is Gaen in a single sentence. She's effectively what happens if you give someone a lot of money, intelligence and reach with a vague goal of "Doing Good" and then let them not be the Main Character of your Isekai Series.
Not to imply Monogatari is Isekai but Gaen is effectively a protagonist who won the lottery and is now abusing her power to be a fucktard to everyone and no-one can actually stop her.
It's fucking great.
Nah, Hanekawa wanted to be more honest with her feelings, and feels envy for people who are, but she seems to have no desire now to be either Gahara or Kanbaru, and she has said she wanted to be like more like both before, but in that vein it was more about being assertive, dominant, or true to her feelings, which she already achieved. She literally tells people she will kick their ass if they piss her off now.
The current Hanekawa is about as comfy in her own skin as she can be, though the righteousness she has chosen to shoulder seems to be weighing on her, you can see that with her talk with Araragi in Musubi.
