10 Second Anime - Monogatari Series Second Season - Episode 24

Monogatari Series Second Season - Episode 24

"I don't know everything. I just know what I know."

Hanekawa finally showed up! My heart can rest easy now. And using her trademark kind look with her trademark phrase on Kaiki was the best.

Actually not a lot happened this episode, as if we're on a holding pattern to learn what Hanekawa knows about Nadeko. And the thing we wanted to learn most from last episode, what was in Nadeko's closet, will probably be revealed in hints through Kaiki's conversation with Hanekawa, and then made obvious during the actual heist phase against the Mad Ditzy God.

We learned a couple of things, though. One is that Gaen is not the only one telling Kaiki to back off. I'm guessing Ougi, or whoever is controlling her. And the second thing is that Hanekawa has been lying to Senjougahara about leaving the country to look for Oshino. She did this as a feint operation to spark some movement from the people who oppose their actions in stopping Nadeko from killing Araragi and Senjougahara. That it spurred Senjougahara into calling in Kaiki was a welcome surprise to Hanekawa. Hanekawa also got a warning from Gaen not to interfere with Nadeko, but she implies to Kaiki that there is more going on there. More pieces are showing up on the board, so this story is getting more complicated. Just like any good caper story should.

Nadeko is still a ditz, and doesn't even know what to do if she gets two 10,000 yen bills. "I'm not giving it back, you know," she tells Kaiki, if he had accidentally dropped another one in the collection box. I wonder what she does with the paper money. At least we know she'll drink the sake Kaiki brought. All gods like wine, apparently. Actually, I act like this too with a good bottle of liquor.
