Well, thanks to the great Korean subber CORAN , I had the pleasure of watching the 14th episode of Bakemonogatari, titled Tsubasa Cat Part 4, last night. Of course, this is just the 3rd episode in the Tsubasa Cat arc, as Tsubasa Cat Part 2 was dedicated to the relationship between Koyomi and Hitagi (an excellent episode, if you’ll recall). This episode felt very much like an in-between episode, like Tsubasa Cat Part 3, with not a whole lot happening plot-wise, but the conversations, as usual, made it an entertaining one anyway.

Well, being the Shaft fanboy I am, I’ve been watching this show. The premise, of vampires outing themselves in order to establish a human-recognized society, seemed interesting enough. Of course, the economics of them paying off Japan’s entire debt is a bit ridiculous – a sudden injection of that much money into an economy would most certainly lead to hyperinflation, which, even in the presence of real economic growth, would be a very bad thing. With no knowledge of the source material, I found the story to be a bit cryptic. There are a lot of things going on behind the scenes that are only mentioned in brief. I’ve heard that the manga went deeper into the political intrigue, and I sometimes found myself wanting to see more of that.

It seems that Shaft decided to make the first two segments thematically similar. Hiding and the ways in which it can be counter-productive was the highlight of both of the first two segments. The first had a good take on Schrödinger’s cat. While the possibility for multiple outcomes exists if something is hidden, when someone hides something deliberately, it’s sometimes obvious exactly what it is he’s trying to hide. Eventually, everyone ends up in boxes, so that none of their potential is taken away. And Nozomu’s older brother Kei (the artist) turns out to have quite a… unique wife.

“We’re going on a date. No, that’s not right… Date… Would you please go on a date with me? What if you went out on a date with me? … Then let’s go on a date, Araragi-kun.”
– Senjougahara Hitagi, opening minutes.

A truly romantic episode. It had nothing to do with the title, but that ends up not mattering even a little bit. This episode provides us with a wonderful, deeply emotional finale to the TV airing of Bakemonogatari.
