Forming Bonds: Analyzing Araragi Koyomi [Part 2] – ANIMETROPOLIS
Araragi takes Hitagi to Oshino Meme and instead of curing her, Meme by Araragi and Tsukihi's sibling relationship and their age difference. After the whole problem was resolved, Senjougahara claimed that she As I've covered in the earlier part, Araragi Koyomi's relationship with. Seeing Hitagi confront her past, Koyomi understood that it's just a story when only foisted his problems on Shinobu and her, saying that she was honored, the fact that their relationship with Koyomi had once deteriorated.
Hitagi also ordered Araragi to be always nice to Kanbaru, so he tolerated that. He took her suggestions to heart, which we see when he brought it up in episode In this arc, he came across Sengoku Nadeko while she was suffering from a curse. Araragi said that it was weird that she had to hold it in and told her say that it hurt when it did.
At this point, Araragi noticed that she was very insincere, and the result of that observation materializes later on. When the process of lifting the curse called Jagirinawa failed halfway because there were two curses put on her, Araragi pulled the other supernatural snake away from her by force.
One of the reasons why he feigned ignorance is to cover his recklessness, and this arc portrayed that thoughtless act. The snake was on its way to return to the boy who put the curse on her. It displayed how he was so miserably altruistic that he tried to save the person who made Nadeko suffer, and he regretted it.
During this arc, he himself addressed this aspect when Sengoku Nadeko asked how much he remembered about their childhood. Feeling that she judged him as a man when he did it, he stopped doing such with her. So he learned that he needed to be more mindful of his actions. He previously briefly went through the events of Spring Break, and he was obligated to narrate the events of Golden Week as well. So he briefly described the events of Golden Week in the latter half of the episode. On their way to their first date, Senjougahara asked him how he did on the exam and Araragi answered what you saw in the first blog regarding the foreshadowing of his connection with math.
When he thanked her using her last name, she teased Araragi by telling her father that Araragi thanked him, forcing Araragi to use her first name to thank her.
Then Senjougahara remarked that she would have prefer if he did it right after the exam, directly showing how Koyomi is always late to express gratitude.

From then on, Araragi no longer saw Kanbaru as someone too kinky and joked about such topic with her. These nuances, the small changes in reactions to the same stimuli between before and after the changes in contexts and tones are one of the most beautiful things in this series and we see that again in this episode.
But then she offered him everything she could at the final moment, promising to offer the rest of what she had in due time, and he realized that he loves everything about her as the Senjougahara Tore Fascination finally hit the nail. Soon after reaching school, he received a mail from Hanekawa to meet her while he was parking his bike.
He immediately figured that it was something important and most likely an oddity-related problem considering she was having headaches, and so he instantly prepared to leave. Araragi mentioned that paying back his debt to her was far more important to him than the friendship they had.
But he believed and was certain that she saved him, since he was about to commit suicide when she stopped and encouraged him, and helped him a lot in many ways back then. After that, Black Hanekawa appeared when they were in the destination and Oshino seemed to have an idea why it appeared this time.
Hanekawa was actually in love with Araragi, but then he suddenly started going out with Senjougahara and that caused her stress so great that the Meddlecat, a result of 17 years of family problems, appeared.
She even gave him relationship advice on top of that. As he thought of having Shinobu use her Energy Drain like before, he noticed that she was missing. So he asked all of his new friends that he made during this period of Bakemonogatari to help him look for her after checking out the donut shop Hachikuji talked about earlier.
While he was talking to Senjougahara, she addressed that it was obvious that he would have to put either Shinobu or Hanekawa before the other in this situation but not doing so was very much like him. Previously in Golden Week, he learned that as her kin, his perception of her has the most influence on her and she became childlike because he saw her that way. In his conversation with Black Hanekawa who offered her help to him, he started feeling that him thinking such of Shinobu ruined her as an oddity.
So when Black Hanekawa asked how much power she had left, he hesitated as he was about to call her powerless like a child. Being responsible for the reduced King of Aberrations, he needed to find Shinobu as soon as he could. She told him that if he was just dating Hitagi just to shut her up, he might as well dump her and get with Hanekawa.
But just the night before, Araragi developed a profound fascination for Senjougahara, realizing that he loves everything about her.
He remarked that Hanekawa was just forcing Black Hanekawa to do the hard part of confessing her feelings. He said that a lot of people live through the same difficulties without relying on oddities and her relying on Black Hanekawa is an insult to each and every one of them.

Araragi then accepted that Hanekawa was indeed in love with him and decided that he should be proud of it. When Black Hanekawa attacked him, he found no one to save him, the person who had helped many others. Just a few minutes ago, he realized that none of the girls he was friends with were really obedient, so he gave up hope of getting any help. Being someone who loves math, Araragi Koyomi tended to use his new or prior learning to solve different situations, just like using equations to solve math problems.
She reminded him how many people was trying to help him at that moment and asked if he was rejecting all of them. Then at the brink of death, he asked for help with the last of his strength, calling out to Shinobu. Araragi realized that Hanekawa told him to get under the light of the lamppost so he could have enough shadow. And then attacked him so he could ask Shinobu for help.
He realized that Hanekawa, his friend did help him. Hitagi insists that she repay Koyomi in some sort of way, that he could ask her to do anything he wanted and she would comply. At the end of Mayoi Snail, she confesses this fact to Araragi that there was never a girl there for her to see, yet she did in fact promise him that she would help him as friends at the park. Almost forcibly, she announces she loves him and that they should form a relationship together, startling the timid Araragi.
She pries and pries, backing him into a fence and demands that her need to be with him be met, to which he finally obliges. It's always a nice feeling when two people get so close that they can come to this kind of understanding; to open up in such a way with no holding back.
It was just a nice touch to deepen their bond, to confirm that they should be serious with each other.
The arc of the cat was mainly focused on Hanekawa, but there was one separate from the main storyline episode near the end where Araragi and Senjou share a beautiful, genuine moment of romance together. I really enjoyed the brief discussion her Dad had with him after Senjou left the car for a minute, telling him how he had never seen his daughter so happy before: After they reach a little clearing in the forest, Senjou asks Araragi to lay down with her: It made me love their chemistry and both of their characters as a couple, and as individuals, so much more.
I love how, when Senjou allows him to leave, he just breaks out of the chains in an instant with his vampiric strength:
