FilmSnark — Revisiting Monogatari Second Season: Koimonogatari
Deishuu Kaiki (貝木 泥舟, Kaiki Deishū) is a conman specializing in imposter He is known as the first of five con men who swindled the Senjougahara family, as well He also appears to have a friendly relationship with the Gaen household. Read the topic about Hitagi relationship with kaiki on MyAnimeList, and and what Kaiki said about Senjougahara's relationship with Araragi. of the Monogatari. It's spoiler-rific, as I'll be going on not just about Hitagi End but other episodes of the series as well. As strong as the relationship is between them, as much as she's Kaiki thinks Senjōgahara is being facetious when she says that . inspired of direct market books often meet the axe in a slow season.
I was reading the first Bakemonogatari book specifically, the first story where Hachikuji Mayoi appears at the same time as I started reviewing these notes. They briefly run into Tsubasa. It stops the series from becoming the Hitagi-and-Koyomi show.
Some are what others perceive them as being. Some are what they perceive. Nadeko remembers trivial matters, and she is a trivial, empty girl herself.

Kaiki is a fake truer than truth. He is the only one who sees Nadeko for the airhead she is, calls her out on it. Her humbleness shows in correcting how others see her. In Tsubasa Tiger Hanekawa mentioned she was not planning to attend college.
Funny how strong a reaction that caused in me. Kaiki very easily agrees with everything that Hitagi demanded of him, when she said that she doesn't trust that he would so easily do everything she said, Kaiki answered that he's "just an old man and not a villain as she imagined", Hitagi insulted that "it's not true because he is just a fake" which he's also proudly agrees.
After that Deishuu reveals that Wreathe-fire Bee, the oddity that "stung" Karen, is nothing more than a fake that everyone believes is true, so his sister would be fine soon, and agreed to leave city as soon as possible, admitting that Hitagi had become a very normal and boring girl than he had known before and suggests that Hitagi had a crush on him, before finally leaving.
Tsukihi Phoenix Edit Contrary to his promise, Kaiki remained within the town even after the meeting with Hitagi and is found by Koyomi at Mister Donut. His reason for staying is to finish some business and again promises to leave after.
Koyomi asks Kaiki about Yozuru Kagenui and Yotsugi Ononokiwho he had met earlier and he tells him about their occupation as specialists in killing immortal creatures. When Koyomi finds that those two were hunting for his sister Tsukihi Araragihe also learns that the one who gave them the information about his sister was Kaiki himself. Koyomi Wind Edit This section contains content from Koyomimonogatari.
During the same scene at Mister DonutKaiki explains how he spread rumors around town when he swindled middle schoolers.
Hitagi End Edit This section contains content from Koimonogatari. Kaiki claims to have spent New Year's Eve for the fun of observing people throw away their money and to observe their ecology. During his visit, he received a call from Senjougahara trying to give him a job request to deceive someone.
While he initially feigned ignorance, a string of lies followed with Senjougahara playing along with his lies end up having him having to fly to Okinawa to meet her. Upon his arrival at the airport, they decided to meet up in a cafe in the airport. Kaiki arrived at the cafe, and upon seeing Senjougahara with a pair of Groucho glasses, he felt a sense of defeat.
Feeling indignant, he bought and wore a hawaiian shirt and sunglasses to wear during his rendezvous with Senjougahara. After Senjougahara resulted laugh caused her to spit out her drink upon seeing him, he silently proclaimed his victory before they started conversing.
He has held on to his love for Senjougahara through all this, but he is able to do that because she fulfills a different role in his life than the others do. Why would Araragi try to change the past, to save Mayoi? To free her from being a ghost and thus enable her to stay by his side. But Araragi himself is being held back by them, as well. And as they continue to leave him, he is slowly, but surely, being moved to a point where he will have to change.Kamiya Hiroshi & Saito Chiwa about the difficulties of Bakemonogatari, their roles and more
Araragi will have to become self-sufficient. This is the genius of Monogatari.

Araragi will be given the choice to change or not. He will have to decide, and his hand will be forced by the absence of all those upon whom he previously relied.
Hanekawa has become her own person. Kanbaru, I suspect, will make her exit or at least have a drastic role modulation in the upcoming Hanamonogatari, leaving the girlfriend, the one and the same partner, and the family. I think, eventually, Araragi will either have to choose between Shinobu and Senjougahara, or choose between Shinobu and becoming his own person.
If he chooses Shinobu, he will never change. He will sink all of his needs and desires into Shinobu and they truly will become one entity. This is not the route I hope to see him follow.
If Senjougahara also leaves Araragi, and I suspect she must even if temporarily to give him the chance to change, I hope that he decides to follow the lead of those who have gone before him—accepting his own weakness, emotions, identity and life. All I know is that change is coming for him.
It challenges our own perceptions of ourselves, and demands that we consider the responsibility we all have to accept ourselves as we are and the responsibility we have to change ourselves. It is impossible to go through life without changing. And even though change is painful, it is a good thing.
