Kabukimonogatari (IV)

Monogatari Series Second Season

dem feels mang….. dem feels…

As short as this episode took to resolve everything that was building up over the past three episodes, it’s undeniable that the feels here were seriously the strongest ever so far in the Monogatari anime productions. Really, that headpat was just…. too much. Especially after adult Mayoi, Shinobu and Araragi preparing themselves to die and the confrontation with Kiss-shot… only to be ended with not violence, but a very much needed pat on the head. Hit it right in the heart there.

Too bad Kabukimonogatari only got four episodes…. which really felt it didn’t do the arc any justice. I guess Hanekawa was more popular instead!

In any case, I think we can all agree that…

Adult Mayoi is pretty hawt

Gotta say, my body wasn’t ready for her.

Ahhh I’ve missed you, Hawaiian shirts!

Heh, no matter what, Senjougahara is the OTP for Araragi eh. Glad to see this part, considering she confessed to him in the events of Mayoi Snail.

Just realized why I felt Shinobu wasn’t so cute so far this season…. she wasn’t doing her unique laugh. Now I am truly satisfied. Also, the cutest Shinobu here.

Oh dear god, what have you turned Mayoi in to, Araragi?! Also, finally some Mayoi-Araragi banter! Really missed that.

And more feels to end the episode with!

Sigh, next week will be apparently a recap yet again. Why couldn’t they just use this for another Kabukimonogatari episode instead?!

    So, wait, the time travel shenanigans in this arc weren’t what directly led to Araragi showing up all MAXIMUM HERO MODE at the end of the previous arc?

    I mean, he was wearing the same clothes then, and had Kokoro Watari too, so for the past month I thought that his entrance in NekoShiro was him finishing his alternate timeline zombie slaying adventure, coming back all ragged and torn up, hearing about what’s been up while he was gone, and charging off immediately to stab a tiger for Hanekawa.

    I think that’s after the next arc with Kanbaru or something.

    Adult Mayoi is my waifu. Do not claim.

    That’s funny. I thought the exact opposite about Shinobu’s laugh. I like her natural giggle better.

    Though if we get down to it, she was probably at her cutest when she was completely quiet.

    Take out the subtitles and the adult Mayoi shot looks sexually suggestive

    Kanbaru’s story takes place in the future after all the Second Season stuff.

    Oni is where you’ll see what Araragi was up to during Neko White.

    Adult bishoujo Mayoi is good and all but some things are better left loli.

    Thumbs up for teen Mayoi-chan!

    So Mayoi Jianshi turned into a primarily Shinobu chapter.

    Of course Shinobu Time is going to be all about Mayoi. Sadly it won’t be this season.

    I wonder what the next arc is though? Since Gaen showed up it’ll probably be Nadeko Medusa right?

    Incidently didn’t they just explain last episode that killing Maximum!Shinobu in Route X won’t return the zombies to normal? Or that it was her death (attempted) that turned everyone into horde!zombies in the first place?

    Just happy that it wasnt another hanekawa ep. OMG How much is that evil cat chick gonna take of the mono series. It was cute at the end of season 1 it was ho humm on the 4 ep mini run. and it was annoying at the beginning of season 2. I really liked this episode. Its great that shino gets to hang out in koyomi’s shadow but its really cool when she gets out and gets air time. I always wondered if she does/or can do something to koyomi while she is IN his shadow.
