Why indeed, really, did things turn out this way? The first six minutes of Otorimonogatari brilliantly start in medias res… and with a set up like that, it’s just making me dying to see the next episode already.

How did Nadeko fall to such a state… and by framing the rest of the episode with such a disturbing context, it really gives the rest of the episode an extremely ominous feel. Something not helped when Oshino Ougi, with her disturbing eyes and all, appears in the episode too. Scary. Heck, even the OP is… cute but very ominous. It feels like a very very negative/scary version of the original Ren’ai Circulation. I’m pretty impressed with their approach here, even if it creeps the fuck out of me.

    Watched the first five minutes, went ?_?

    Then the OP came in, backwards Monogatari op? more ?_?

    Poor Sengoku? Hell no, not with all those hormones in her body. Wouldn´t it have been better to ask Kaiki what to do instead of borrowing a book about curses?

    Would have made it all so much better I´d like to believe.

    Did she never hear the tale of the snake under the rock? Or how snakes are in general? She wanted an excuse to do this to Koyomi I´d think.

    Oh well. Cheers to a new arc, I´ve been waiting!

    Nadeko is such a scary murderer. But she’s cute, so it’s okay!

    The reason we’re all watching, the Nadekos.

    @AozuAkazu Yeah, the OP took a lot of animations from Renai Circulation and either reversed them or switched them up a bit, like Nadeko sleeping at her desk instead of working. It’s a good fit, a “negative/scary version of Renai Circulation” as Kurogane wrote, since this arc is all about pulling back the cute and nice-girl image of Nadeko that was built up from her earlier appearances.

    How about another Twister game? Since this arc is gonna be twisted along the way.
