When they said that the world was destroyed, I didn’t really think zombie vampires would be the remnants of the human race. Well, it happened, and I’m certainly looking forward to how the hell they are going to get out of this mess. I mean, they can’t go back in time and all that, but this is Mayoi’s arc. I’m sure we’ll see her soon enough…

Monogatari Series: Second Season Episode 9 Impressions

Oshino Shinobu startled

SHE FEELS THE LOLICON.

It’s not. IT’S A DREAM.

D:

Araragi sweating

O_O Sweat.

Araragi Koyomi burned

Can you remove that by using a tool or something and not directly touching it? :)

From the outset, you probably knew something was wrong with how Shinobu was acting towards Koyomi and the only reason that could be the case would be that she had something to do with this. Or rather, her in the timeline they’re in right now. And of course, it wouldn’t be interesting without them not being able to go back in time to fix their mistake. Although it’s impossible for them to be stuck in that world forever because we’re viewers of an anime that is bound to solve this problem, seeing the Koyomi face this hopeless situation gives a bit more insight into his character that we may have forgotten in the gap between this season and the previous. He may be a perverted lolicon, but he certainly knows when to make the most of the situation and solve the mystery with all that he can. While there may be no panic because of the shock, not everyone can pick up the newspaper fairly calmly and try to solve the situation.

Jesus, even Monogatari is hyped for VALVRAAAVVEEE.

LOL. So much for not damaging them.

Monogatari Series

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

KISS SHOT ACEROLA HEART UNDER BLADE PLS.

Araragi Koyomi confused

WELL. I DIDN’T THINK I’D SEE VAMPIRES AGAIN SO SOON *Cough VALVRAVE *Cough. Anyways, the prevented death of Mayoi didn’t affect the world that much until a certain day where it mattered most. My memory is akin to Araragi’s in that I couldn’t remember what happened on that day, but now it’s clear. There is no middleman to tell him of Shinobu and everything spiraled out of control in just a day. To think that I could have seen KISS SHOT ACEROLA-ORION HEART UNDER BLADE but didn’t truly saddens me. It’s not really that Araragi didn’t remember that day per se; it’s just that he couldn’t link everything together as it seemed to him of the other timeline to be perfectly fine.

THANK GOD FOR THE DONUTS.

Araragi Nisemonogatari

I totally forgot everything related to this.

But who would abandon an adorable mini-vampire D:

KISS. SHOT. ACEROLA. ORION. HEART. UNDER. BLADEEEEE.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Araragi Koyomi

Awww…

MOE SHINOBU.

Araragi and Shinobu

How nice.

Oshino Shinobu and Araragi

SO MOE.

So, apparently the donut shop is the savior of the entire world because otherwise the world would have been destroyed. DONUTS. We haven’t seen much of the Shinobu donut eating recently. *Sigh. Talk about a short chain of events that lead to something drastic. Though, I’ve forgotten why she actually ran away from home and was about to literally destroy the world so if someone could enlighten me on that, that’d be great. Regardless, the world is destroyed and while Araragi may comfort Shinobu for not being the one at fault, she clearly still is. Araragi probably realizes this, but it’s apparent that dwelling on that will not help the situation which is why he’s helping her out of it. That, and the thought of blaming her for this particular outcome, that is, Shinobu doing this in a different timeline, never crossed his mind. Mayoi will undoubtedly play a role in this arc and she’ll probably appear next time because it is her arc after all. One thing is for sure, it’s not going to be easy getting out of a world where everything’s been destroyed.

Monogatari Series: Second Season Episode 9 Review

If there were an episode that I had a lack of things to talk about, it’d be this one. Pertaining mostly to Araragi and Shinobu, it’s more of them figuring out the situation than dealing with more profound events that we are normally used to. Of course, it’s still entertaining and I still struggle to wrap my head around how they’re going to solve everything even if it means that I don’t have much to say about the episode. Some Shinobu love after letting her stay on the sidelines is a welcoming change, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to see more of Gahara. Other than that, it’s your “ordinary” Monogatari-style episode. I’m expecting a great conclusion that will amaze me as much as the previous arc’s ending has for it seems that everything has escalated another level and is even more dire than the previous’.

    Well that’s a butterfly effect for you. The loli – The donut – Death to all humans!

    This just goes to prove that one should not underestimate to power of the donut. Now I understand why cops eat them all the time. To prevent the destruction of humankind. Such a noble sacrifice *cries*.

    Well all those fireworks were useful as they attracted the attention of something and my assumption is that it’s that realities version of Kiss Shot Acerola Hearts Under Blades (god I love that name) who’s hiding somewhere in the shadows right now. Will we get to see an epic vampire vs vampire battle unfold in the next episode? I sure as hell hope so!

    It’s so amazing how someone who looks so innocent as Shinobu can do shit like this … bravo, bravo.
