He literally chose best girl in the first story arc
Because the author wanted to simultaneously take the piss out of various harem tropes while also making the MC a self insert for the otaku who buy the books.
Also because Koyomi has trouble controlling himself around girls and Crab canonically states in the last book that she gets off on how he constantly skirts the edge of breaking down and just cheating on her but keeps restraining himself since he's so in love with her.
All the supporting characters just happen to be women. Which I don't have a problem with I enjoy hanging out with women. But inevitably somebody wants somebody elses D and then you have harem-esque shit happening. Araragi is pretty much married though, and this kills the harem.
Araragi might've chose the best girl for HIM but the true best girl got an entire series dedicated to her.
Actually it was an excuse to bump the thread from falling off the board while I translated.
Owari vol2, chapter 025
Whilst suffering the mental and physical exhaustion of having experienced these many and varied unexpected conflicts, plastic bag clutched with great care I arrived at the shrine, and what awaited me there was yet another, yet worse, conflict.
The little girl had pushed the athlete onto the ground.
Within the grounds of the temple, sacreligiously.
Oshino Shinobu was straddled onto the torso of Kanbaru Suruga, who was lying face up.
What happened!? What's going on!?
What is this entanglement I am seeing on the other side of the shrine gates!?
(skip a bit)
And--they're having a disagreement?
Or rather it sounded more like an argument, or mostly like a fight. But, an argument from a mounting position? That's pretty much the last stage of words part of an argument.
Nothing left after that but a fistfight.
Serious spoilers here.
servantin question is Bat's ex. Kanbaru knows exactly how it feels to be rejected for the new guy, and feels that he has a right to at least see herand she has the responsibility to properly reject him.
Just because Araragi is committed doesn't mean other girls magically stop lusting after his D.
>He literally chose best
He spent four hundred years reviving and burning to death, scattered around the world as a bunch of ashes. Eventually he collected a bit in the snake shrine (which caused its general unstableness), but when he "witnessed" Araragi and Shinobu there together doing their time slip thing, he was able to quickly form enough of a body after a couple days to go after and try to kill him.
Senjougahara said that Kanbaru's love for her, that hadn't lessened one bit even after a year of not seeing her (after she graduated middle school) was a heavy burden.
Shishirui's was the same, except over four hundred years.
That was her first, haven't read the LNs but I guess she had others. What a slut.
Him and Kankan need to start a club.
Anime/manga love and affection kinda pisses me off. They always take it to a level that doesn't actually exist.
Guess so, but the basic details still seem true.
I'm going to guess from this particular sentence that Kanbaru is the lynchpin of the operation Gaen mentioned back when she blac- made friends with Araragi and asked for a favour to get Kanbaru?
I'm going to guess Kanbaru ends up exorcising
Shodai Kaiigoroshiby either through talking and empathy or by her sick basketball skills which we know can exorcise someone. Shodai gotta step up his game or he's going to get slammed.
>Kanbaru ends up exorcising
Nope. Her role was precisely to
argue with Shinobu, who was afraid to see him; to tell her that she needs to man up. Gaen chose her precisely because she has the experience of being an ex and could argue for his position. I'd say that argument was the climax of the book, really.
deathmatch between Shishirui and Araragiafterwards was just like a bonus.
That was crab's fuckup, not Rararagi's
Does Senjougahara know that Shinobu lives in his shadow? Does she know that they are immortal life partners?
Dunno man. I still have powerful feelings for my first girlfriend and its been... almost a decade. It's like you can imprint on somebody or something.
Not that I would date her again, but I still love her.
Man Shinobu such a slut.
Having sex with some Oddity Hunter. It's like she clouldn't stay a virgin for about 600 years.What is wrong with her? Didn't she have 4chan to keep her pure?
Gaen is a fucking genius. Why does this make me want to fuck her so badly? Is this normal? Her and Cat make me all googly.
Is Araragi a parallel to Zeus?
Because by Jove if that legend doesn't make the finest of men. And Shinobu makes an excellent Hera. Well, removing all that "burn everyone my husband has slept with" stuff.
Shinobu is ready to accept your seamen!
You know what I think? I think Shinobu just wants to be Vampire Fucked. I mean, fucked by a fucking vampire. No, she wants to make love with a vampire. Someone just like her. But nooo, she chooses men who just can't stand being vampires.
It's like every guy you date turns out to gay or something. Poor girl. No wonder she acts like she has a stick up her ass sometimes.
Does anybody care? No. Booboo is just there for the pats and the donuts. They don't consider the deep needs of the ex-most-powerful-being on the planet. They just don't care.
No man, you're not alone in this. I too think Gaen is attractive.
Being a fucking genius is a good thing.
Right? Glad I'm not alone on this.
I would love it if those loose, baggy pants got snagged on something.
Nice cow by the way.
wait did kanbaru really had a relationship with crab?
I thought the reason Kanbaru was there was because
she felt the same as the first servant loving someone who didn't love you back, or was i wrong ?
It's a shame there are so few Gaen pictures.
I wonder if the lack of Gaen artwork is directly related to her lack of fandom or if there is an untapped resource of Gaen pictures by a hardcore Gaenfag somewhere in Japan and we just haven't found it.
No it goes:
Monkey > Snail > Bat = Crab > Phoenix > Bee > Cat > Doll > Snake
Thanks. It is a shame.
If there is a legendary golden city of Gaen artwork, we must find it.
I just started drawfagging (I haven't drawn like this in years, it feels so good) and if someone requests Gaen I'm doing that shit. I might just draw Gaen for funzies.
Do it all for funzies, man. No point doing it if you're not enjoying it.
Yeah, sounds like fun. I'll sleep on it for sure.

Quit posting your fanfiction, you stupid fucking faggot.
They were never lovers.
Samurai watched the bullshit Bat and Araragi went through during the parallel time slipping.
He wanted a second chance for a chance that never actually happened.
Like that wordplay I threw in there at the end in honor of Hitagi?
Gets wet from wordplay: +1
Saves your life multiple times: +4
though, I can imagine Crab using wordplay in her dirty talk. Personally I think that would make me laugh.
man don't remind me. I want to dream anon! WHY????
She's secretly as goofy as Araragi is.
IT'S FUCKING IMPLIED.
Goddamn. No, Nisio is going to write up a saucy scene for autists who don't understand normal human relationships.
Please tell me your the same retard who came up with this Walk me home gently shit.
Samurai doesn't count as Bat's ex.
Basically, Samurai gets jealous of Araragi and Bat's relationship and seeing that, he wonders if he could have a relationship like that with Bat if he were to get a second chance.
He wanted a re-do where instead of committing suicide due to being a monster, he accepts being a monster.
Being in a servant/master relationship is pretty much sexual for vampires. something like kissing on the other hand means nothing to them.
you're a raging retard. go kill yourself.
They have yet to make the Senjougahara Desk Pad. I am dissapointed.
>Being in a servant/master relationship is pretty much sexual for vampires.
Yep, I can already tell you are an animeonlyfag.
Those are Hanekawa's statements after she just read some books from the library.
But unlike you , I actually read the novels and the half vampire that came to town explained a lot a shit about vampire society that was cut out from the anime and the main thing is that Kissshot doesn't follow the rules or customs of vampire society and is an existence alien to what you think about vampires.
So yeah, thanks for showing how much of a retard you are, fake spoilerfag.
You speak the English?
You mean Episode? Well excellent. Do tell us what you know. I read what I can of the LNs. This whole kissing thing not being sexual is ONLY in the LNs. You would probably know that if you had half a brain in that shit head of yours.
>servant/master relationship is pretty much sexual for vampires
yes that's what cat said " akin " not necessarily the same thing, bat turned first servant into a vampire because she was alone, felt lonely made then turned him into a vamp.
Then first got butthurt because he hated being a vamp. So i doubt they did anything sexual while he was a vamp, he hated her for turning him into one. Then like the other anon said he wanted to re-do the whole thing again.
>wants to move in with her and marry her one day.
>turns down hordes of women dying for his dick including his Sex Goddess
Well, I think he might have somewhat of a point.
So he's saying Otakus need a hardcore girl like Crab in their lives? I don't have a problem with this really.
I don't think he's turned down anyone, except for the obvious cat of course, more like he always has them as their choice or something along those lines
but he does love her, that much is true so he doesn't cheat
it also says something similar in the later novels
Because the term harem is applied when three or more love interests are romantically attracted to a single other party.
>subgenre of anime and manga characterized by a protagonist surrounded, usually amorously, by three or more members of the opposing sex and/or love interests.
It has nothing to do with if said party fucks multiple love interest, or is attracted to multiple love interest. As long as three or more people are attached to someone, it's a harem.
And then you have people like this. Who are not only ignorant, but also arrogant.
That being said, *monogatari is bad regardless.
