Tsubasa Cat Part 5


And with that, Koyomi finally comes in own right as a harem master.

Yes, epically late post is epically late. It’s been way more than a year since Bakemonogatari ended and due to :reasons: I never did manage to post about the last episode, so I’m taking the chance now. Well, back then, the webcast quality was pretty shite and I guess it was better to have enjoyed it in full 1080p glory, even though the subs were pretty shite. Those who have the ones will know :P

I have to admit, Koyomi’s denseness in NOT realizing Hanekawa’s feelings and awkwardly denying them after being told straight up by Black Hanekawa did make me want to punch him a little for being such an idiot, but then again, Hanekawa’s also a little at fault with that so it’s probably best solved between them later on. I’ve been told crazy shit goes on in Nekomonogatari White, which I assume will conclude off Hanekawa’s character story.


Remember, I am always watching.

Shinobu appearing out from Koyomi’s shadow was probably the most kickass thing in this episode though, and wow, if that’s just a small percentage of her powers, I really wonder how crazy she can be when she’s in full vampire mode. Argh, can’t wait for the Kizumonogatari movie. Hoping on SHAFT to make it as epic as it looks in the small previews we’ve been getting in the series early on.

That all said and done, having Oshino leave at the end of this series really makes it feel like a proper ending for the series for now. As the mentor character, Meme had a great influence and presence despite his one-dimensional role as “Doraemon” and having him there would probably hamper Koyomi’s development in the future. That way he said good bye in Tsubasa Cat Part 4 was pretty classy as well.

Okay, that’s enough waffling for now. It’s a bit sad that Kizumonogatari will be a film instead of an anime though. On the flipside, it’ll probably have better standards of production but on the downside, the wait for the Blu-Rays to be out is going to be a pretty long one :(

    I don’t know if it’s the best show ever, but it might just be my favorite. At least top 3. Of course, I watched it in 1080 once the discs were out, so I missed out on the silos full of bullshit that surrounded the original airing. So that probably helped.

    Well… Aya Hirano voiced Shinobu on the Drama CD version. But I hope she sticks her role when the movie comes up! C’mon, her agency has become a bit shady IMO.

    Still have the webcast version of this, and Thor is apparently taking a break, so I’m gonna be waiting for a while for the best version. It was a great ending though, especially the part with Oshino’s goodbye.

    How about blogging the end of Sora no Woto? Episode 13, that is.

    lol I saw this post wondering: I thought this finished, whut?
    Kizumonogatari is a movie? Aww, was hoping it was a series. Oh well. Has SHAFT actually done movies before? I wonder how it’ll fare *___* I hope it’s epic, it HAS to be!

    Now if only someone would subtitle/translate the commentary tracks for the episodes. Those of you who downloaded the BR rips may have noticed there is a commentary track included that goes with each episode; Different voice actors are in each of them, but they always do them in character, and it’s quite hilarious from what I’ve been able to understand of them.

    Almost perfect timing, just when I was starting on this show today, and I’m very much pleased with the first episode that I’ve put it on my marathon watching list for this weekend.
