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 :(
