“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence...”
As almost every post here: "Tsundere service" FTW!
I also loved that Tsubasa neko appeared in the entire episode, she's really funny and BEAUTIFUL. Now in the next episode they'll find Shinobu, she'll say something revealing and funny to Arararagi (supposedly) and the anime will end ;__;
I'm already hoping for a second season though, contrary to Vampire Bund, Bakemonogatari totally fits to SHAFT style.
This was the penultimate episode. Everyone's still beating around the bush about Koyomi's need to blindly placate everyone without knowing (or caring) about what they're going through. There wasn't enough of Black Hanekawa, Hitagi, or Shinobu beating that into his head, so I actually got really frustrated with having waited however long for an episode as stagnant and unpolished as this one. The dialogue wasn't nearly as good as other episodes, but it's better than Dance in the Vampire Bund, so I guess that's something. If I could have felt as good about this episode as I do at the end of one of Hidamari Sktech's, then that would at least be something.
Only read the first couple of pages and the most recent, so I don't know if this theory was posted.
Is it just me, or is it obvious that Shinobu is right next to Araragi? He stated that she can only use her super powers when she's near him, and the cat can't seem to figure out where she even with her super scent detection, so she's obviously disguising herself with some ability.
I don't know if it is because of the long wait between episode and episode, but Bakemonogatari seems less awesome to me in these last chapters than in the previous ones =( Anyway, just one more to go, and hopefully we all will be satisfied with it.

Just Watched Ep 14
Finally its aired.
not really what i expected to be , thought it would have more action kinda thing.
great to see the characters again. even if it was small parts.
seeing hanekawa reminds me of azu~nyan well since hanekawa keeps on saying it.
here are some sreenshots i did.
so MOE!!! <3
listening to the full Hanekawa OP
I admit, again not quite what I expected, anyways they are all rather awesome, actually.
Anyway hopefully ep 15 will be much more exciting!
actually Bakemonogatari does not contain that much action. We'll have to wait for Kizumonogatari for the action.
I'm sorry but this show is so awful. Maybe it's too deep for me or something, but it is just so boring and the lack of animation bothers me. I honestly couldn't say what's happened during these last 14 episodes at all.
