Okay, I've no fucking idea what to make of this. I'll need to rewatch it on the BDs, because right at the moment I'm not sure if it genuinely is really good, or just the blank spaces due to lack of animation are so prevalent that I'm just filling them in my mind in the best way possible.

Seven years later, I had one more epiphany about Bakemonogatari

Text bolded is the actual theory, rest is context of the spam chat.

[00:44:38] Reighe: ne me podsetihte da vi kazha genialnata mi *monogatari teoriq
[00:44:47] hellraiser: kakva e
[00:45:00] Reighe: so, like, remember Tsubasa Cat had two openings?
[00:45:05] Reighe: one cosplay, and one animated
[00:45:20] Reighe: and first it was the cosplay one


I've started to get how such shows work. Long scenes of relatively cliche interactions, broken up by short introspection in the characters' psyche. It's probably supposed to be at the same time easy to digest and profound. It doesn't always work, but because it's Romeo in this case, I'm quite enjoying everything. But while Romeo being Romeo means I've no problem with any aspect of it, the whole thing doesn't come off as anything special either.
Anyway, four episodes left. Pic related is probably the face that best exemplifies love that I've seen in quite some time.

Huh... after the old hag managed to make the Hikari = light metaphor, it suddenly dawned on me.
My own idea of living up to my own name is twisted as fuck, but it still can be said to be there.
