Finally realizing what’s been up eh, Hanekawa.
Not much fanservice in this episode but oh boy there sure was a lot of talking!
Introducing the Araragi matriarch! Man, she sure looks cool.
Aw snap, her words are pretty sharp. Guess that’s to be expected from the mother of Koyomi, Karen and Tsukihi.
Following on, Gaen Izuko finally gets introduced! The last and most enigmatic member of the circle Oshino was in at university. But seriously that fashion style…
Heh, that catchphrase. BTW, her seiyuu is Satsuki Yukino, in a rare appearance in a non-KyoAni/Gintama production.
Oh ouch…. Hanekawa sure is getting lectured a lot this episode!
Oh dear, that’s the first time I’ve seen her that irritated.
Wow, stabbing the knife in deeper and deeper….
Yeah, I think she’s mad.
And after a tiring day getting lectured, meeting all sorts of random characters and researching, the surprises continue for Hanekawa.
Lol, don’t exist inside his head. Oh you, Koyomi…
Hahahaha, seriously these siblings are way too clingy with each other isn’t it?
The big realization, finally.
Oh lawd, the marking scene www
Furthermore, that cockteasing of Araragi by sending him photos of her wearing his clothes, oi oi Hanekawa-san!
Finally, the penultimate episode of this arc. While it was interesting in the perspective of the insights in to how screwed up Hanekawa is (she cut off her memories to Black Hanekawa and now even her own feelings to the Tiger), the show’s really reaching the breaking point of Araragi’s absence.
Still, we got introduced to a key character, Izuko Gaen, and just as her other three comrades, she’s really unique isn’t she. Also, to be able to drive Hanekawa up the wall that easily… heh. This was a great episode for Hanekawa reaction faces wasn’t it.
Next week, should wrap up the arc. Can’t wait for the part where [REDACTED] and [REDACTED]!
Also, in a slight departure, there seems to be two end cards (of a sort) for this week’s episode. The official one is so out of the left field btw…
