I can't into honorifics all that much, I just know their connotations to a vague extent. Why is it odd that Araragi refers to his sisters as chan?
Because he pretends he hates them but he's actually close to them.
Just imagine calling your own little sister that. It's weird as fuck even if you were Japanese
Usually you would refer to blood family members without an honorific when calling them by name.
Because Araragi should call them by their given name or should call them imouto. Shouldnt add -chan cos theyre his little sisters. Its like Araragi values them more or different to little sisters
If Araragi was from SoCal he'd be Brahraragi.
i shouldn't laughed as hard as i did at this
Because they are from the same family, if he calls his sisters "chan" it makes him "chan" as well, and he is clearly not related to Jackie chan.
That's because Arararagi is a twisted fuck who has a thing for his sisters' teeth.
I'm from SoCal. I have NEVER heard "brah" used in a conversation as anything other than a dudebro gag, and even then I've heard it maybe a handful of times.
I'm also from SoCal and I say brah all the time as do my friends.
It isn't odd to call your sister with -chan, it's just weird considering Ararararararagi's usual attitude towards his sisters.
I would do unholy things to Tsukihi.
