In a lot of ways, Hachikuji was closer to Araragi than any other girl.

Kaiki's death was more tragic.

And he didn't even die.

I actually cried when this came out.

I didn't expect it, so it hit me hard. Especially when she was talking to Arararagi and her voice kept getting more and more broken.

Despite the fondling and being 10 years old, I feel like there's more unspoken respect between the two than anyone else. They're equals.

Hachikuji is pretty much the closest thing to an reliable adult friend that Raragari-san has in the series. Most mature character is a loli. Their banter was top tier.

Beneath the inane chatter, and in fact even supported by it, is the most adult relationship in the series. I made the mistake of chipping in on a conversation about anime once, mentioning I like Mayoi's character.
>"Oh, anon, you like the child..."
>>
>>100145462
The subs really don't do it justice, but Hachikuji probably has the most advanced vocabulary of any of the characters.

>Their banter was top tier.
If my daughter doesn't smart talk me like Mayoi I'll be disappointed and disown her

Your chances of having a daughter as sharp as Mayoi are abysmally small.

Not a LNfag but Meme will be back. I can feel it.

Gender makes no difference. The vast majority of adults aren't as quick on the draw as her.
>>
To be fair, she's not really a child. She's a ghost that's been wandering for a while. She looks like a child obviously, but she's been around long enough to have developed that wit.

snail actually about 20 years old
of course she talk like adult one

Good one.

Why did she died?

But I'm pretty sure his skull got bashed in unless I'm missing something
>>
>>100154123
He didn't die. He just got dentures and stitches.

>>100146629
She uses the most advanced, but Hanekawa knows everything so there's that.

She was already dead.

(This is the first Monogatari thread in the catalog)

Is the expectation that I should pause to read this? I don't have a problem with it if I'm supposed to pause, it's just not what I was expecting.
>>
>>100154123
Why didn't he be like Naraku and keep a bunch of BEEEEEES hidden on him at all times so he can asspull an escape.
>>
>>100156214
Pause if you want it's entirely up to you.
>>
>>100156364
What I mean in my question is if the information in those few frame texts is important.

It's kind of an interesting way of getting something into your head. Kind of like subliminal advertising. Watch it at normal speed because that's how it's supposed to be watched, but the cuts are just there to have you see a couple of words on the cut before getting thrown back into the show. They have text from the LN so if you do pause to read you could learn something, but it's something that for the general storyline for the series isn't important info.
>>
>>100156463
It's not entirely necessary, but it will give you a bit more insight into the character's minds. They're usually used as asides that would show up in the novels, things that aren't particularly easy to animate and aren't worth spending the time to have a character say.

It seems like the text is more important in S2 than it was in S1, probably because S2 was so condensed they had to put actually important stuff in it rather than random quotes. Pic related, the text when Shinobu was missing was pretty much the only thing that tipped you in to Araragi's thought process at the time.
>>
Hachikuji along with Hitagi, Shinobu, Meme, Tsukihi, and Kaiki made the series for me. It's too bad the subs don't do the series much justice.
>>
New LN should be out by the end of the month.

I try to visit monogatari threads frequently, but I never see much original speculah on what is going to happen with certain characters or other aspects of the show.
What is something you think will happen or is just your personal speculation on the series?

I haven't seen any of it, but I guessed that Tsubasa Hanekawa is best girl from pic related in a "anons who've never watched an anime guess who's best girl" thread a little while ago, does that count?
>>
>>100158559
I think Kaiki knew he was being followed to some extent.
Also, I feel like his last phrase or two before he died meant he would pay his way out of "hell" or wherever he goes.
I haven't liked a character more than Kaiki in a long time so this whole arc was amazing in my opinion.

So is a car that works but has a slightly displeasing design still just a piece of shit or is it a car that gets you to where you want to be?

>>100158559
I don't know if this is already supposed to be apparent after this arc but I could be posting something new. So Araragi is Oshino's "apprentice/successor", Senjougahara is Kaiki's, and Hanekawa is Gaen's. I use "apprentice/successor" because it seems to define the relationship of all three. Oshino and Araragi are pretty obvious, I could go into depth but I don't think this is the most important pair in my speculah. Senjougahara and Kaiki less so until this last season. I could type out a ton of stuff about why I believe this, but an obvious one is that they both deceive and do so to reach their goals. Lastly Gaen is pretty much clairvoyant and the line she says is a twist on Hanekawa's line "I don't know everything, I just know what I know". Hanekawa could very well be a direct relative of the Gaen family and also possess clairvoyance to an extent. She talks about how her current parents are not her real ones and on the clairvoyance issue she not only warns araragi about several future occurrences, but it was also said in bakemono "If hanekawa got a question on the test wrong then the question was the one at fault" (or something along those lines).

I would write a lot more and may in the future, but I have class in 4 hours and haven't slept yet. Feel free to correct anything in my post
>>
>>100158559
The dark cloud is so obviously Ougi and Hanekawa is Gaens rival

Ougi is final boss but I don't know what her purpose even is besides just keeping kais in order and her relation to Gaen
>>
>>100160498
I doubt Hanekawa is actually related to Gaen, unclear real parents or not, but that aside I mostly agree with your speculation. Since it's a really interesting one considering the similarity in character traits. On Araragi and Oshino this is obvious, considering Araragi was under his guidance for some time and Oshino seems like the "nice guy" of the college group. On Senjougahara and Hanekawa, the interesting thing this season was how it really seemed in their interactions with Kaii and Gaen, respectively, that they had stumbled upon a superior version of their own traits. And not only did that make for great interactions, it does support your theory. Bottom line is, I like that theory.

>>100161140
Ougi basically went and said she was the darkness. No idea about her being the "final boss" but it's interesting how both hers and Gaen's goal seems to be to keep some sort of balance, yet their methods are clearly different. I wonder if they'll ever screw up each other's plans.
>>
>>100161406
Well I'm gonna go to sleep now, but I hope to discuss my theory more in other threads. There are some flaws that I need to figure out and other things, but I really don't want to type it all out right now as I should try and get at least 3 hours of sleep before the first day of classes.
I'll probably use that same picture in hopes of discussing more with you specifically.
>>
>>100161693
Sure enough, I'm usually on Monogatari threads anyway and this is an interesting theme. Have a good day of classes.
