#Nisemonogatari ep5: I can’t imagine that Araragi’s in a playful mood right now. Is this about revenge or solving the problem? #anime
What an inconvenient solution. I’m sorry, but I’d have to let my sister keep the fever.
This episode definitely knocked me out of my playful mood. Seeing what that Kaiki dude did just sent me into an internal rage. I don’t care if that was my sister or not, Araragi can’t be completely cool underneath. For now though, it feels like he’s doing the right thing… sort of. He’s at least trying to address her pain and health before getting some payback.
Maybe it was because of my anger towards Kaiki that I was a little shorter tempered towards the show this week. I wasn’t in the mood for the playful art direction and editing, nor the ecchi fanservice the show seems to wallow in week to week. It also doesn’t help that I have personal distaste for siscon (which I know the show isn’t pointing towards, but they sure do tease it).
I’m getting the feeling that either his anger is either obviously misdirected, or Araragi’s anger is obviously misdirected BECAUSE he can’t get his hands on Kaiki. The guy who afflicted his sister did pass right by him that day. I don’t doubt that Kaiki knew exactly who Araragi was when they crossed paths.
There’s a fine line I have between a villain I admire, and one I despise. Right now Kaiki seems to be hiding behind a belief that whatever he does to people justifies his goals. He lives in it, he revels in it. And there’s something more despicable about it because he does it to kids.
He’s a test for Araragi. A test to see how far he’s come since Oshino has passed on that much I’m certain of. Everything else, well for the moment I seem to be blinded to it by my anger at this guy.
