THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

GL getting back. Even the coloring of this episode reminds me of a past. Nice talk about fate I guess. Lol, is that a mini Tsubasa? ;o I have to admit that the OST of this episode was pretty catchy.

Oh shit, Mayoi spotted! Pretty decent episode imo. Watching Araragi-kun getting hurt was painful though.

Kitten Hanekawa was a nice surprise, watching both her and Araragi freak out was pretty funny.

Kira kira Araragi!

Time to go back to the future! But Araragi's ominous tone at the end worries me.

Looking more and more best girl every day, Shinobu.

And I wonder just how badly they've fucked the future.

a lot but dont realy want to spoil it lol
Hanekawa tried to stretch herself to the limits, after that her facial expression became resolute, and in that state she inserted her hands inside the hem of the pleated skirt of her uniform.

I thought she would once again flip up her skirt for me, but, no matter what, Hanekawa didn't do such a thing devoid of logical connection.

Instead she took off her panties.

Man.. That new OP takes cute to a whole new level.
Then we got to see little Hanekawa, Shinobu in a school uniform, AND more Hachikuji. This whole episode was just packed with pleasant surprises.

The scene where Araragi first saw mini-Hanekawa was hilarious. Araragi was crawling and crouchwalking towards her lolol. Then the two of them chasing each other up and down the streets was pretty amusing

I got goosebumps for a second when that truck was about to hit Hachikuji.
This episode was great. Really interested in what'll happen next.

Good old Pedoragi. Completely forgetting his main objective and succumbed to flipping Hachikuji's skirt.

And that was one hell of a cliffhanger huh

They skipped so many chapters whole and parts it wasn't funny! Only good thing was...
But man, they skipped a ton of good stuff. I thought they would end it a couple of chapters earlier. 100 pages for one episode! I think that must be a record for Monogatari and it isn't a good kind of record to break. Only good thing is there are only 150 pages left so the last two episodes probably won't skip as much as this one did... Read the novels for the whole story!

When I read it, I too thought at first, "Uh oh, what if the reason why Hachikuji jumped into traffic is because they tried to go and save her and she got scared and ran... oops!" But no, they saved her. But, again when I read it, it made me think of a temporal causality loop, now that they saved her they don't need to go back in time... so why are they still back in time? Hmm...

Wasn't all I was hoping for. But still a decent episode I guess.

Yea, this is why I was pissed at the recap episode, less episodes for the other arcs. (Also I heard there were going to be recap for each arc) :/ if the other arcs are going to animated like this i'm a little concerned...

It is worrying indeed. While Neko Shiro skipped stuff and some important stuff, with 5 episodes in a shorter novel it skipped a whole lot less. At this rate I am worried for the whole second season.

They are re-using soundtracks too. I really like the Bakemonogatari soundtrack, don't get me wrong, I just listened to it today while reading. But... doesn't something that sells this well have the money for a new soundtrack? And to avoid recap episodes??? Sigh... two more episodes of Kabuki... then... recap episode 2 most likely (it is coming, just not sure when).

I also hate how they skip a lot of parts from the novel. There is no reason for Shaft to rush things like how they are doing. Hopefully they will add scenes in the BD release.

I also hate these recap episodes that are going to air after the end of every arc. I feel like these recap episodes are only made so Shaft can have more time to animate the next arcs. I mean, I could see one episode but five?! The Monogatari series is really popular in japan so it is not like the people watching this season don't know what happened in the past seasons.

Best episode so far imo. Oh my sides.

The new op is rather good.

Shinobu's reaction to shota Koyomi was my favorite, but Koyomi's encounters with Hanekawa and Mayoi were great too.
I also loved the part with the disguise hahah.

This arc is full of win, though i wish they didn't omit the dialogue before they slept (showing shinobu's fear of Gahara) and the wonders of collar bones.

I still find Araragi's pedophilic tendencies strange, disturbing and frankly wish they didn't exist, but I did like the episode overall. The series is known for it's conversations and out of all the pairings, I think the rapport between Araragi and Shinobu is second only to Araragi and Hitagi.

it doesn't really bother me with shinobu and hachikuji for some reason but I have to admit I was a little put off by his pedobear instincts in regards to 6 year old hanekawa but on the other hand I don't think he really thinks of them sexually he just has a weird way of expressing how cute he thinks the lolis are kind of the same way he treats his sisters.

I've always seen it as a tongue in cheek way of mocking loli lovers and also as a tool to lighten the mood after some of the more serious scenes.

This episode just remained why I bothered watching the entire series in the first place.
As of 27/7/14 I have decided trap anime Sword Art Online II has more appeal than Mahouka.

Fantastic episode. Hanekawa is so cute as a child. Araragi's reaction was absolutely hilarious, he's such a paedophile. He started bleeding and his hair was all messed up. XD So many good Shinobu and Araragi moments in this episode. Shinobu looks great in middle school uniform. Araragi was able to save Mayoi but in doing so the present world was destroyed. Holy shit, just changing an accident really changed the future/present immensely. Mayoi's arc is a lot better than I had expected omg! :)

Loved this episode. From the great cliffhanger to chibi Hanekawa and Araragi, seeing Shinobu much more participacive as a character and Araragi being his old perverted self. Look forward to see what they've done to themselves.

Any chance that the policewoman who they talked to was Araragi's mother?
