The way nadeko ran away....damn that was cute
Worrisome that koyomi has that grin on his face when running out to meet...Nadeko? Tsk tsk, cheating on Senjougahara already? xD

Great arc!

Contrary to what I though, Tsubasa Cat is not an arc that played in the past (because Hanekawa knew Oshino), so we might hope for more Senjogahara now.
Araragi and Sengoku talking about Doraemon inside stuff was nice^^

I thought he was rather surprised to see Nadeko there waiting for him, so it cant be her. I think its either:
1. meeting Hitagi
2. or he is just glad schools over? :-)

I am not very positive about seeing Senjougahara next episode either, though she could be involved somehow: Senjougahara + Araragi --> more stress for Hanekawa ?

anyway, i like this catgirl + vampire stuff xD

I'm getting really, Really, REALLY annoyed that we haven't seen Senjougahara in like 3 episodes. She was what made this show. I mean what the hell man? This other stuff is getting boring without her. I'm like not even looking forward to this show anymore.

UGH!

Awesome episode. Lol what was Koymoi doing to nadeko around 10:10-10:50. Putting his hand near her face, and lifting her skirt? I didn't quite understand that lol.

But omfg Nadeko is CUTE.

A little more Senjougahara would be nice though.

LOL that evil cat laugh was funny.

Last TV episode next week by the way...Animation seems to have picked back up a little bit. 180 degrees from last week's episode that's for sure.

Wonder how subs are going to be form here on out.

That seems really up in the air. I have a feeling that this might end the series but I'm hoping they'll show Koyomi Vamp

Wow, finally a good episode ! It was far, far better than the last couple of eps, the direction and animation were great and no missing cut this time ;) Nice developments and some kind of unexpected episode structure with a well placed flashback in the middle. Great ep, simple as that.

And it fits perfectly. This white cat seems very strong and tricky to fight against. It would make sense to have more episodes dedicated to it....

Koyomi Vamp is probably going to be in the second season as a prequel arc if not omitted at all....Then I suppose Karen Bee and Tsukihi Phoenix will get animated in a second season (if there is a second season in the future).

Lol at Koyomi this episode, getting all excited over Sengoku...

Best part of that scene is when they contrast her speed with a car's.

Wouldn't mind an explanation to Koyomi's actions between 10:10-10:50 also. I couldn't read the sign after that scene...The type was small, blurred and too light.

Ok just downloaded the subs (even though it kept freezing on me for some reason >P) it was an ok episode....I was really bored actually. I'm tired of hearing all these pointless side stories. I want Senjougahara to come back. I thought the story was between them two.....

you know, for a girl who's so posessive of Araragi, she sure lets him hang around with a lot of girls lol

and the next episode's is the last one to be on TV? Does that mean the rest are going to be OVAs?

Well this arc should be interesting to say the least. I'm glad they're finally focusing on Hanekawa as we've seen quite a bit of her up to this point but not even knowing much about her. Her problem really seems similar to Senjougahara in the sense she had family problems and a supernatural entity is putting a toll on her life. I look forward to seeing how they resolve this.

The show is good but it was awesome in the beginning because Senjougahara was on screen. If this keeps up she will go from Main char to supporting and be one of ''those'' girls he helps each week.

At least hint for 2nd season focusing on those two! 11of 15 episodes and Senjougahara has less screentime than Kanbaru? Unacceptable :P

So far so good, better than the last arc, for sure. I was glad to see the flashback, if they're making this arc 5 episodes long I hope they get a flashback to Koyomi Vamp in there. Still, I miss Senjougahara ;_;

From what I've heard there will be more Senjougahara in this arc, but take that with a grain of salt as it's very much third hand information.

Tsubasa is a really interesting character. I just have the feeling that maybe she likes Koyomi or something... for they seem to have some deep past that involves Koyomi feeling that he owes her a lot.

I'm still a Koyomi X Hitagi shipper of course.
