12 Days of Anime #10: Reminding everyone who is Worst Girl

Owarimonogatari - 06 - Large 07You know me. I like my butter to be instantly applied to my toast so it melts, my shower to be warm when I step under the water, and my favourite Monogatari girl to be Senjogahara. That doesn’t mean I can’t respect those with differing tastes though. Kanbaru is an excellent choice and worthy runner up to Senjogahara. I might seriously question you if you said it was Nadeko, but that was only before her starring role in Second Season. Shinobu is an interesting one who isn’t personally my style but I can honour and respect your choice. The new girl Oshino Ougi is one I would equally understand why you might be enamoured with.

The Hanekawa fans though. I’m afraid for you I have no respect. You are beneath the rest of humanity. You deserve no place on this wonderful planet. And sometimes it’s nice to have the anime remind the audience who is right at the bottom of the rung.

This was why I’m picking for my moment in anime #10 the scenes where new girl Oshino Ougi just laid it into Hanekawa. I liked Oshino up to that point, but she didn’t appear to have a huge amount of her own feelings. Just a mirror Arararagi would bounce off. But then Hanekawa storms in and tries to get Araragi’s attention away from her, and she just lets rip. Not in the way Nadeko did last season where she kicks a door off its hinges or anything. No, this was a cold, smiling, heartless, bitchy cut down. This was the kind of verbal bashing Senjogahara would be proud of, and that’s saying something. Heck it was quite possibly beyond anything Senjogahara could come up. With each smile she would deliver another verbal quip to shoot down Hanekawa time after time that was just wonderful to bask in. And all our girl Hanekawa could come up with in response was “hey I have boobs”. Ougi Oshino you probably will never be my pick for Best Girl. But you took apart the Worst Girl so for that you have my eternal gratitude.

    Jealousy is so sad to see…

    I don’t care that much (because any other choice other than Gaen is obviously wrong.), but not including Mayoi just because she’s dead and Yotsugi is slightly dishonnest.

      I also thought Hanekawa was Worst Girl but… Gaen…? That was even an option? Now I’m not so sure.

      Hanekawa was somehow a better character *before* her character development arc, when she lost the glasses and long hair and became nekomimi boob girl.

        I meant Gaen was the best girl. Bad formulation on my part. (or Kanbaru, if the choice isn’t avaiable.)
        Yotsugi is the worst. And Mayoi close second .

        I’m completly indifferent to Hanegawa.

        Gaen is fantastic and I really hope we see more of her. On that note, doesn’t she appear in Tsukimonogatari? I should probably finish watching that at some point…

    I’m having trouble keeping with the change of tempo on this blog now that the 12 Days are officially upon us. NOT THAT THAT’S A BAD THING

    Bless you and your taste in anime grils. I’m a Kanbaru guy myself, but second place in another’s eyes isn’t bad at all.

      Considering the radio silence we had before then, this has to be a welcome improvement
