Episode 4: Koyomi Water

Yup best episode so far of Koyomimonogatari. Kanbaru and Senjougahara. But in all honesty Senjougahara stole the episode. But the Kanbaru parts were hilarious as well.

Nice mystery. Or rather the punch line that was given was nice. People often look for someone that resembles themselves. It's amazing how they turned something simple as a reflection into a life lesson.

I found it funny how Araragi was in the bath and Kanbaru thought he was imprisoned, and Araragi thought that Senjougahara would never imprison him. Little did he know what would happen in a couple weeks. (Nisemonogatari Episode 1 for reference)

Oh yes if I am correct next episode should have Renai Circulation as the OP. Yasssss looking forward to it. Hmm I don't usually write this much for a short, but there were so many things to talk about.


She's so perfect

Well, this isn't just any short! It's Monogatari...

Yes, it should be Renai Circulation next. I can't see them changing the order of the chapters for broadcast as Koyomi means calendar in addition to being his name.

I am most interested in what they'll do for the final two OPs. Just instrumentals? Or shall we get our first OPs from...
Both of their seiyuu have done character songs in the past so I'm hopeful but not holding my breath. They have not yet solicited the Blurays for it but that's probably why. A boxed set? 2 discs? Usually the OPs are on the bonus CDs, I hope they chose to make 2 new OPs so they have something to put on the bonus CDs other than just new OST and atogatari.

Koyomimonogatari serves as a good ad for Utamonogatari the theme song collection that just came out last month.

Was indeed Renai Circulation for Koyomi Wind this week with more characters we long to see. Great stuff!

It was nice seeing Sengoku and Kaki again. Loved the brief scene of Kaiki in that field of sunflowers

The OP song for the latest episode is cute especially the style of it.

Glad to see Nadeko back again and her interactions with Araragi was charming.
Nice to see Kaiki too considering that he's one of my favorite characters and his "trade secrets" are gold.

We got a Sengoku episode!



Well, sort of...

Sengoku was only the focus for the first half of the episode and then it switched to Kaiki. Poor Sengoku can never catch a break in this show. Her episode was even shorter than all the other Koyomimonogatari episodes so far.

I was disappointed we couldn't get a full episode of Sengoku. Then again, if I look at the bright side, this episode featured two best girls for the price of one. And yes, Kaiki is best girl!



That sure was a lot of popcorn.

I'm hoping that Nademonogatari (撫物語) will be either all about Sengoku Nadeko (千石撫子)or at least a chapter as it has the character from her name. It comes out later this year, not sure if it is the next book or the one after that.

Slight anti-spoiler on what we still don't know about Nadeko:

Episode 5: Koyomi Wind

I swear this short gives me so many thoughts. But its Monogatari. There is always more depth to it than what it initially perceived and absorbed. In short, loved the episode.

OHMYGOD EOFHNKDSFNHKDS Renai Circulation. I love this OP. Can't wait for Platinum Disco. Sengoku is still as thirsty as I remember her prior to her last arc. Love her thirstyness. Also where did all that popcorn come from? Why'd she take off her socks (That was cute af though)

Kaiki laying down the truth. The stuff he says is great. I doubt my generation. Also Shinobu during that scene was freaking adorable with all her donuts



Loved the episode and the epilogue or rather the punchline

I love that nisioisin basically wrote the yandere Sengoku Medusa arc because HanaKana said she wanted to play a crazy character when he interviewed her.

Who could say to that cute face, "but it isn't my birthday today!"

I know Kaiki isn't one, but whenever I see him he looks like a vampire to me.His skin is so pale and sometimes his teeth seem unusually sharp.

I didn't know that. If that's true, it's cool how HanaKana could have that much influence on how a character is written. She really does love playing crazy girls when she's not playing the sweet and innocent type.

However, it looks to me that Nisio Isin hasn't figured out a definitive conclusion for Sengoku. She's the only girl who ended up being on bad terms with Araragi and the aftermath of the whole Medusa incident was only briefly mentioned for a minute in Tsukimonogatari. Sengoku hasn't appeared since, except for a few seconds in Owari, which took place before the Medusa arc. I'm glad to hear there are new novels being made. Hopefully one of those shows us how Sengoku is doing.

Not sure it was HanaKana's influence so much as her inspiration for nisioisin. I think it's really cool how his story has grown organically from the beginning when it was just supposed to be Bakemonogatari. Then he added Kizumonogatari as a prologue and that was supposed to be it. Then Nisemonogatari was a sort of a joke... and it just grew from there. He just keeps going back and filling in the holes of his story. Though...

Small timeline spoiler from Off Season:


Already two novels from Off Season and at least 2 more to go. Means likely another 2 cour of anime are possible after Owarimonogatari S2 and Zoku with likely 8-12 or more arcs to cover, assuming that Aniplex and Shaft continue to animate it all. With one novel called Nademonogatari I really hope she gets an arc or even a whole novel to finally explain more about the poor girl who as you say was really left with a bad end. I hope he figures out something good for her though he may not.

Another girl with a bad Koyomi end spoiler:
