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.

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...
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

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.

again.. no senjougahara even though the op is staple stable.. but it's ok since they put moe nadeko and cat hanekawa.. well.. we all probably has a clue on what is her stress now, right?

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?

I'm a bandwagon whore

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.

NYAHAHAHAHA~ Damn that was great. Nadeko was so cute <33 hope we get a bit more of her before the end of the series. Of course Senjougahara better be in the last few episodes from this point on. She needs more air time~

Evil Neko Mimi mode anyone?

Neko Mimi Mode Hanekawa >=3. Nyahahahaha~ I'm glad they got their budget back to normal. This 5 episode arc looks promising. My mind was going nananananananana... NEKO when they showed Neko Mimi Mode Hanekawa jumpin in the B&W sequence.

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.

Bakemonogatari in a nutshell

Pretty artwork
Almost no animation
Gimmicky character reactions
Manface women
Constant eye shots
Constant splash screens with random text
Contrived dialogue
Generic characters
Shallow plot

Instead of being monster of the week, it's oddity of the week. Protagonist helps women with their problems because he's nice. Some of which fall for him. The structure of the series is that of a standard harem.

Why do people like this show?

I don't know if standard harems start with the protagonist dating a girl he met in episode 5 and locked up with her forever. Harems usually have routes or different options and choice but Araragi doesn't really have a choice.

Opinions are opinions. I don't really see what "manface women" has to do with an enjoyment of an anime, generally the females of this show are designed really well.

Seems most of your post is just railing on Bakemonogatari. I don't know why you watched it til episode 11 if you find so many faults with it.

Pretty good episode. Nadeko running away was hilarious. Interesting to finally see what happened to Hanekawa as well.

Am starting to miss Senjogahara though.

It's easy to like it. Instead of counting how much "animations", "Constant splash screens random text" etc..does an episode have, just try to watch and enjoy the whole stuff.

This is just for chilling because it's a cartoon, no one was complaining on Flintstone's "animation" either, you just watched and thats all.

Hi.
Gief MOOOAAAAAAR Senjougahara!
But sure it was pretty nice having some story behind Hanekawa.
Black Hanekawa is White. lol
"Nyahahahah~"

Araragi made an Awesome-face!
: D (No, not an awesome face, but an awesome-face xD)
Actually, he made a bunch of funny faces, but I think that one takes the price : p

And that's a strange caleidoscope-way of showing pictures : p

There is something about SHAFT.. They have this tendency to make things interesting without really doing anything : o
And those screens with some random color (usually the 'red', 'black' or 'white' screens) are somehow really making this captivation O.o

Also, Great picture at the end, after the preview xD


Say.. did the animation get like.. sometimes great, sometimes awesome, and sometimes kinda crappy (but not all that bad anyway), at pretty much random occations?O.o

Oh and btw, Staple Stable's back : D Awesome! And the ED is still as awesome as always : 3

Anyway all in all, awesome episode is awesome : 3

True, no reason needed.
Although there's always Senjougahara : D And that's a pretty darn good reason!

Sorry to break this to you but Senjougahara was never the LEAD female, she was just the arc character that just so happens to be Araragi's girlfriend. Btw, if SHAFT ever decides to animate Koyomi Vamp you will realize that Tsubasa plays a much more important role in Araragi's life than Senjougahara. If anyone has read the novel than they will know that it is 100% surprising that they didn't starting dating after that story.

lol you missed the point. Regardless of what the novel did (which you're not supposed to reference here. =\) Senjougahara is what makes this show. Point. End Point.

And boo to the guy who talked trash about the show. Contrived dialogue?? This is some of the best dialogue I've heard in years!
