So this 12 Days thing is running near a close, so I thought I would actually do something most people do with this sort of topic, actually write about 12 moments in anime that occurred this year. I know, really original, right? So I’ll try to avoid some stuff I’ve gone on-and-on about over the course of this series of posts and limit myself to one thing per month. Can I pull it off? Find out below.
What you are reading here is the beginning of this blog’s 500th post. I worked it out so amazingly well that it falls dead in the middle of another bunch of posts and so it will be buried for weeks on end. So in that spirit, I’ve decided to do a list of my top anime. The humiliation won’t last all that long because of when this is scheduled thankfully.
The final episode of Nisemonogatari features Koyomi confirming his own feelings before, during and after a final showdown with Kagenui and Ononoki. That said, he does it in typical Araragi fashion. He ultimately convinces Kagenui to move on and is thus able to keep his life the same, only without the threat to his sisters anymore.
The penultimate episode of Nisemonogatari takes Koyomi on a simple fact finding mission to a trip back home that would change the way he looks at how he viewed the world. He takes Shinobu on a trip to the Mister Donuts shop that she loves so much in exchange for getting information on Kagenui and Ononoki. Conveniently, Kaiki is also there which allows him to learn that Kagenui is an onmyouji. He returns home to find the 2 of them camped outside oh his home waiting for a surprise target.
The 9th episode of Nisemonogatari continues to move along without the presence of Tsukihi in her own arc. Karen’s extremely quick character development leads her into bizarre behavior just to please Koyomi. On their way to Kanbaru’s house, they encounter a new character who appears strong to Karen while Koyomi helps her oblivious to what’s happening. After Kanbaru and Karen are introduced, Koyomi runs into Mayoi for another one of their standard conversations before they are interrupted by another strong new character looking for directions.
