This was one hell of a weird conversation between a brother and sister and I was shocked to see his other sister taking off her top in front of Araragi

Rewatched the OP for this just now, and for some reason it felt very "Bond Opening Credits" like

A good start, with good dialogues and a little more ...

Un buen arranque, con buenos diálogos y un poco más...

You know, there are times I wish Araragi and Hanekawa were actually together...they have this clear sexual tension every time they speak.

Ohhh the days of Araragi being so in love with Hanekawa, though I know he's still in love with her. Referencing to what Araragi said to Mayoi in Nisemonogatari.

Of course, there'll always be a scene of Araragi being a hentai and molesting one of his little sisters. Haha. And of course a Karen fanservice. Goddamnit. I was watching this episode in public. I feel judging eyes surrounding me rn. Lmfao.

Good episode and Araragi celebrating when Hanekawa said he can do one thing to her. Hahaha. You ecchi, Araragi.

To think Araragi felt this strongly for Hanekawa, and then what, like two weeks later, he was dating and seemingly in love with a completely different girl. I guess the show describes it as Araragi lusts for Hanekawa, but feels actual love for Senjougahara? Hmmmm

Araragi lusts after every female that looks pretty and is within arms' reach. He's a total horndog who even lusts after his own 'fire sisters'. Shameless pervert is Araragi!

Tsukihi's "yandere" tendencies are so fun to watch, at the expense of Koyomi, of course :P And I love the opposite answers of how the Fire Sisters answered the love question. 'You can't confuse love with lust!' vs "If you look at someone and think you want to have their kid" LOL. Also, I gotta appreciate Shaft's ability to animate boob physics ;)

The situation with Hanekawa is really interesting. I really wanna know more about her family situation and what happened to her parents. Must protect!!

All that build-up for a perverted request, and it actually turned out to be pretty cute. Points to Koyomi!!

Love conversation with his sister, the boob scene was hilarious. Araragi is such a weird character, definitely abnormal. Good episode.

How old were his sisters in this? 13 and 14?

I am surprised how casually the 13 year old Tsukihi mentions his sexual frustration in a conversation and especially how the 14 year old Karen casually walks around topless in front of her brother. Does nobody in the family feel shame?

I know that some parts of the series are more heavy on the ecchi side, but I wonder if there is a good reason behind this or if it's just fanservice.

Is this to show how Araragi perceives the world with his perverted mind?

Wait I'm confused.. How come the conversation with Hanekawa was exactly the same as in Bake when she was hit? That just seems really odd.

Araragi has no shame lol, flipping the skirt of a girl he fall in love with.
He who smiles in a crisis has found someone to blame.

So from my understanding, this four-episode arc will be focusing on the initial Sawarineko encounter. I have come to the conclusion after Araragi's conversation with Tsukihi that a) Tsukihi is way more nuts than I thought she was and b) Araragi is just horny and doesn't actually love Hanekawa romantically. I think it is safe to assume he values her as a friend, but not as a lover. Araragi making the split-second decision to grope his sister was hilarious. All of Karen's sweat was disgusting. Hanekawa getting hit by her father is very irritating, especially with her trying to protect him. Araragi using his one wish to heal her wound was really sweet. She was clearly expecting him to wish for something more perverse.

While Tsuhiki's answer is complex af and not at her age, Karen's answer is just simple. They're really different. It seems like because of Tsuhiki's answer, Araragi ended up thinking he didn't love Hanekawa. I actually don't think he loves Hanekawa either. This part I might actually know more about Hanekawa and I'm in for it. The new OP and ED is good as always. OP may be in my top 3 of the series till now.

Enjoyable episode!~ The convo with Tsuhiki was funny (and she makes some of the silliest faces) and the later half with Hanekawa was excellent
