Huh, a lot of parts from the meddlecat arc. So, I guess we're going through that again.

Araragi is like Kaneki with a gross mind.

This time it's Hanekawa and she transform into cat.

Shinobu is OP, we need more info of her power. I'm guessing in the first episode prologue that is the adult Shinobu.

Deep down Hanekawa want to be with Araragi but she's too kind to steal Senjougahra's position. I guess Araragi suit well with Hanekawa, they will care each other.
He who smiles in a crisis has found someone to blame.

Banger OP. Probably my favorite of the Bakemonogatari OPs. I dunno why, but I never get tired of Japanese people speaking like cats. It's just hilarious. A stress-based aberration, huh? Interesting. Didn't they say that vampires are the most powerful aberration, or is there something higher? I really hope we get some context between the whole Araragi vampire thing eventually because I'm still really confused what the fuck is going on there.

* Getting a Tsubasa focused arc , there has been a lot of build up for curious to see where she goes from here.
* Apperently her ailment has something to do with so personality and black hanekawa really liked the background behind her ailment as a means to remove stress and also her dialogue at the begining was great for fleshing out her character. Her family life is interesting to say the least.
* This ailment was dealth with prior to the series beginning so it get detailed out more in a previous arc.
* There was sequence of flashbacks in this episode that was basically like a recap for the nekomonogatari arc. Whose events were cool and thrilling to watch, my only concern is that since it gave us everything in a brief summation what happened, with regards to events that happened in that arc, the nature behind Tsubasa ailment and the nature of the linkage to her characterization and how it was resolved what's left for that arc in nekomonogatari to explore.
* That aside, looking forward to seeing what shinobu will do she seems to be relevant in this arc and relevant to it's resolution. Maybe this season or next season we will get into her character.
* We also had some noteworthy interaction with araragi and sengoku that was a little awkward.
* Will say this episode definitely got more interested in hanekawa character, she was interesting before but it solidfied it.

It was a nice episode and it went by pretty fast to me. A fella really does enjoy these OPs. "Sugar Sweet Nightmare" was my ringtone for a bit. Some great visuals in this one and Hanekawa and Araragi's interactions are wonderful. Again, since I'm re-watching I can appreciate the references and things that are mentioned

This was a good ep. Half of the ep. concerned the post-snake arc with Sengoku Nadeko. Looks like she is still half-embarrassed when Araragi-oniichan is around. But the big question is why she muttered and ran away the moment Tsubasa showed up.

Anyway, the opening was something for itself. I am really glad the opening describes the arcs main characters personality. The song fits each time. This time we got an adventurous opening where the character wants to travel the world around and get a lot of traveling experience.

The ep. was great too. I really loved the nyan transformation. It got to be (currently) the best transformation of an character. White Tsubasa looks so cute and dangerous at the same time, nyan >.<:

Looks like once she get a headache she goes all out with the transformation. First I thought she had killed her parents (I guess they are the foster-parents), but I guess I was wrong since her foster parents are still alive. Apropos Tsubasa, I get the feeling like she is the type that has a crush on Araragi, but doesn't want to become a nuisance in Araragi & Senjougahara's relationship. So instead of standing up for herself, she rather gives tips how to how to improve the relationship. Poor girl, hopefully we will get a confirmation later on. Next ep. looks exciting. Seems like Tsubasa and Senjougahara is gonna meet, finally.

i cant put this episode into words but
jaw dropping lol at sengoku's running away

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.

You may need glasses. Nah, kidding. On the sign it's written: "There is a lot of problems with place you're protecting". I interpret it as a joke where this is the phrase in Araragi's mind that he want to use to see Sengoku's panties. xD My interpretation of that scene is his perv behaviour. He may want to touch Sengoku's hair and see her panties. You can clearly see it when he grab her skirt. But before he pull it up, he stop the temptation and pull back. That's why he says after that scene: "I feel like my manhood is being measured when I'm around you". Then again, this is only my interpretation of this particular scene. :)

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^^

The way nadeko ran away....damn that was cute

How she faced the traffic lights, lovely.

I don't think it's been told about
. I may be wrong, but I don't think this kind of information has been revealed.

"My mother's husband's second wife is my current "mother", and her second husband is my current "father".

My head is spinning. So her mother is gone, her "father" isn't her real father, so her mother remarried once. After the biological mother left, her "father" remarried and the woman he married was already married before, so it's the second marriage for all of them?

Probably correct guessing. I came to the same conclusion. In other words she lives with foster parents where the father is violent type.

Imagine turning into a cat because you had so much built up stress lol.

So we get some more insight about Hanekawa's life, feel bad for her.
I'm guessing there'll be more flashback scenes to when Koyomi first helped Hanekawa with this.

After Renai Circulation, no op (in this season) could possibly top it, so this new op isn't my favorite, probably my least favorite out of all of them.

That conversation with Nadeko was really interesting and fun to watch. Loved when they were talking about Doaermon's gadgets, and how Araragi reacted when Nadeko handed over the school swimsuit. One of my favorite things in this show is just how the characters will have conversations together. When Nadeko ran away, that as just adorable.

It looks like Hanekawa already had an event in the series, so it looks like a prequel or something. Really interested to see how her arc will turn out.

Another interesting arc°_°

I actually enjoyed this episode when they show Tsubasa back story it was very interesting.

I also liked when Araragi and Nadeko met the way Nadeko smile and blush was really cute especially when Tsubasa show up and when Nadeko run my was like melting on cuteness^^

Looks like Araragi is cheating on Senjougahara lol.

Anyway this episode was Interesting I actually loved it.
