Nisemono spoiler question:
if the Phoenix plants herself into the womb of a PREGNANT woman, doesn't this mean she was pregnant with tsukihi already, do despite having a kaii latched to her, isn't she a real sister? Why do they keep saying it's a fake (nisemono)?
Shinobu must have no soul, huh?
Koyomi has a soul.
I think they meant Mamararagi was already pregnant with Karen, then the Phoenix added another soul to his womb, making her getting twin infants inside her womb.
It's confirmed vampire's have souls in this universe or something like it. During the latest monogatari movie one of the specialists confirm that the reason Araragi loses his reflection is because his soul is leaning towards being a vampire rather than being a human
its a metaphysical question. if the soul of a phoenix inhabits the flesh of a human, which entity is truly tsukihi? ararararagi thinks its his human sister. you may think something else.
karen best girl
I don't think this is specified, but I'm anime-only.
My interpretation was that the pheonix apparition impregnated itself in mamaragi and imitated her child. By this is standard, Tsukihi is just as much human as she is apparition, but she isn't Araragi's sister.
Araragi defends the bond they've developed through living as if brother and sister, that in her relationship to him she is conceptually his sister.
Hachikuji a qt.
>I doubt the Japanese themselves have a similar concept in their folklore.
Why would you doubt that?
Why does Monogatari have no climax?
Literally 70 episodes with no fucking payoff.
Where's my final boss. Where's my Shinobu sacrificing herself for Araragi's sake, which the series was hinting at.
Either way, it's just her soul that was imprinted, not her personality.
Literally doesn't make sense.
Except it is literal, you faggot. How the fuck did the bird impregnate Araragi's mother? Did it rape her? Is it a male bird? Is it immaculate conception?
Wouldn't Daddy Araragi be a little upset?
Shinobu says the kaii is harmless and rather than its host being Araragi's sister, it was his mother. Also, in the book Araragi's narration has a line about the existence of the kaii making it natural that Tsukihi's birthday was so close to Karen's. So I think the point was that the kaii didn't replace or take over a fetus, instead it just used a woman who had been recently pregnant as a host.
No, but fuck you.
Guys, if you've been on 4chan for longer than a month you know telling him to fuck off won't work, and he'll "try" to ""bait"" you pathetically. You have to ignore any and every post he makes until he leaves and stops posting for awhile. Worked many times before, don't justify another shitty post of his by giving him attention because he likes shitting up/ruining threads anyways so you'll just be doing everyone else a disservice.
Black Hanekawa makes my dick diamonds.
Regular Hanekawa does nothing for me.
Opposite of Kanbaru.
Always thought that they and Tohsaka sisters are twins before lately
>Tsukihi isn't Araragi's real sister since she was an egg laid in his mother's womb by a Cuckoo
Just realized the symbolism meaning.
Where did you think the term came from?
I get it
>Implying Japan doesn't have a concept of soul
>What is a tamashi
>Mfw a Kappa stole my soul ball from my ass.
>"Nadeko wishes for the ball in her butt to be removed too!"
Man, Nadeko is such a big slut, is not even funny.
>why is Sengoku wearing the school's swimming suit yet again
>But rather, it was an overly revealing bikini that covered very little, had strings everywhere, and was something that you do not usually see, even in those gravure albums.
>You can say that it was similar to noodles.
Nadeko confirmed to be even sluttier than gravure idols.
Well she's only really lesbian for Hitagi.
Where is it show'n she's lesbian for the Araragi sisters? Also she just thinks young girls are cute, Shinobu, Nadeko.
She pretty clearly rejects Numachi.
Excellent story, by the way. If anyone hasn't read it, I highly recommend it.
I'm pretty sure this was canon. I can't recall exactly, but it's the same conclusion I came to about Tsuhiki
You don't even have to look in Tsuki, Karen ran away from her advances in Nise when Araragi dropped her off. She tried to get in them panties.
Now you know KanbaruxKaren is only in the realm of doujins.
I fell you are just talking out of your ass at this point.
Are you blind? She is incredibly hot, even outside Cat form.
Gahara even acknowledges that she is hot, see those passive aggressive glares she makes in Tsubasa Tiger.
She dresses frumpy to suit the class rep image, with Black Hanekawa basically being the other trope of Sex Librarian + Catgirl personified. Which is essentially another part of her anyway, literally.
The only ones who really think her personality is shit don't know her at all. Like how awesome she was in Kizu. Or how she femdoms Araragi without even trying.
Look at picture related, without the braids, she is smoking hot.
I don't know what's going on at this point so I feel like I should just post more monkey.
Hanekawa with dual braids and glasses is the sexiest.
Yes but the cat you posted does not exist. She could be sexy but she chooses not to be. Maybe after neko shiro things change but we don't get to see that.
That's why black hanekawa is the only sexy version.
Nope, it's true, she ran from Kanbaru and that was why she was home so early.
Man people who watch the anime miss out on so much good stuff. Like Araragi using Karen's nipples as a door opening password. Not bullshiting.
>sperging your headcanon all over here
For what reason anon?
>posting potato in a vain attempt to ruse someone
Go be a lolicon somewhere else.
The cat doesn't exist because she is the Cat (kind of, it's complicated). And wasn't the point that she doesn't have to try to be sexy, she just is.
I remember the gym storage scene in Kizu, she all but upfrontly commands Araragi to massage her tits the right way. That shit is hilarious. Plus that fist bump after she lets him borrow her panties. She's fucking awesome.
>desperately tries to make him love her
She doesn't do that though, he already does love her, he just loves Gahara more. She just couldn't accept just being happy for his relationship, and the stress came out. The flip side is that she also wanted to be happy for him, which we see in Neko White.
Read the actual rejection scene for Tsubasa Tiger, he literally offers his room for her to stay in right after that. And begs her to stay bawling tears and hugging her knees when she leaves for the airport later on in the series.
Remembering Hana she only mandatory wanted Araragi in it as usual since he is the standard harem leader in this story.
And who really cares about something which ended?
Harem girls aren't allowed to have romantic development with someone else than the harem leader, since he is taken by Senjou all other girls need to become alone cause they can't have him anyway.
Looking at Hana it's basically like that, author doesn't allow Kanbaru to grow out of her Araragi haremette phase and is afraid of giving her girl or guy real love interest.
Is it even mentioned anywhere that she needed to restrain herself? Because I'm pretty sure it's not.
Pretending she was alright all the time was a facade, but she treasures her friendship with Araragi, so their b romance was completely genuine. Like, did you even read Neko White?
I bet you thought she never had any other friends too.
Looks like you are a big faggot Anon.
You might enjoy Araragi's big fat dick inside your ass better.
Now try it with a different outfit.
As the other guy said, she was personifying the image of the stereotypical class rep, but she is quite pretty regardless.
I'd say it was a matter of taste if it didn't seem people like you were hating for the sake of hating.
It's mentioned offhandely in Owari, it's the time she set off to travel around the world, Araragi saw her off. He makes a big spectacle about it.
She likely appreciates being loved, but that really has to hurt a bit when she sees the big picture.
He doesn't know any better. Shuraragi is a socially clumsy angel.
>Harem girls aren't allowed to have romantic development with someone else than the harem leader
This my major problem with harems, the other girls should find happiness as well. Occasionally it happens, but not often enough.
Imagine chocolate milk. Tsukihi is milk and the bird is chocolate. Two different entities that mixed into one. Tsuhiki is sorta kinda Koyomi's sister and not at the same time.
you need to lurk more But you could also try pressing Ctrl+S
Once actually, which a lot of other characters do as well. See the commentaries, the fight in Tsubasa Cat was much about getting Shinobu to come out and alleviate the problem + forcibly make him admit sacrificing himself wasn't the answer.
She was the one who effectively convinced him not to kill himself in Kizu, gave him tips in battle, and gave him really good relationship advice he still uses.
It's like you're trying to say they aren't close or something.
No, she tried to kill him twice and she actually succeeded the second time in an alternate timeline.
>It's like you're trying to say they aren't close or something.
>It's like you're trying to say they aren't close or something.
Where did I imply that? Because I didn't.
How the fuck would I know? I don't even know what you did.
I learned that about a week after I found /a/
and abused the shit out of it.
Also, you can
highlight somethingand then press ctrl+s to put the highlighted textin spoiler thingies, The more you know.
She's more of a cuckoo than a phoenix.
She replaced the original child, she is still Koyomi's sister, just not the original sister.
That's why the series was basically which is better the original or the....replica.
Why the hell isn't cat the MC?
Why the hell did SHAFT cut her epilogue in Shiro where she comes to terms with her abuse and decides it was not her fault?
Why didn't Kaiki take her up on an evening of sex in her hotel room?
Why is it that Kanbaru is so hostile to her in the commentary? Is it because she's into her?
Will she ever find love? She seems to be on track to be like the next Gaen. Wish she had more story.
