Monogatari Series Second Season episode 26 (finale) – Nadeko to be the next Tezuka

Considering how much they teased what was in that wardrobe, it could have been a hell of a lot more anti-climactic. Nadeko could have become a snake god because she was busy running away from doing her summer homework. Now imagine how annoyingly anti-climactic that would have been to several episodes of nothing but repeating […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 25 – You trying to fool me?

Nisioisin supports underage drinking. Nadeko went from onii-chan fetishist Worst Girl to binge drinking snake goddess. With the reveal at the end of this episode, combined with her brilliant EEEHHHH scene, she’s had two of the best moments in the whole season. Character transformation ahoy. If pulling a guillotine gorilla is anime version’s of jump […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 24 – Legacy building

I like this scene because Kaiki holds the phone in a vaguely similar way to L from Death Note. Like if he gripped it properly it would contaminate his hand so he has to gingerly grasp it between two fingers and hold it away from his face as though it might bite him at any […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 23 – Crab of Versailles

That 70’s shoujo opening was brilliant, plain and simple. It’s dumb little things about it that I dug, like how they made the screen really grainy when compared to the shiny modern era. Or that they had the awkward looking karaoke featuring a white font with no border. Perhaps best of all was how through […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 22 – Half blood prince

As mentioned in the monthly roundup, I happen to be awfully busy right now. I’ve moved house and just started a new job so my life is really hectic. I’ve handed off the latest Samurai Flamenco post to one of my minions co-writers. Here’s Monogatari though, while it’s the weekend and I’ve still got unpacked […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 21 – Groucho Marx glasses

They know it, don’t they? Shinbo, Nisioisin and co. know the best part of their show is Senjogahara. They know, and that’s why they love to do so much teasing with her reappearance. The bare handful of appearances she makes after the first arc rarely ever show her eyes and deliberately frame the camera so […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 20 – Gaen screencaps

You can tell when I’ve fallen for a character while episodic blogging when I look back at the screencaps I took for the episode and it’s all of that one character. When I checked my images folder after finishing taking screencaps, I had about 20 pictures. 1 had Araragi in, the rest were all of […]

Monogatari Series Second Season episode 19 – Where are we?

There was a very strange moment in this episode of Monogatari when Araragi wakes up and asks where he is. The two characters take a look around and both proclaim they are not exactly sure where they are. The camera then pulls out to reveal scaffolding. I’m so used to the scenery around the Monogatari […]
