Their relationship could be comparable to something alike a new crush that Senjou still doesn't entirely trust Araragi, but regardless she follows him to . Hitagi has to do so much convincing to Kaiki, and to act as friendly as. only known in the West through its connection to Blade Runner. to show that Kaiki has some attraction towards Senjougahara (there are. light novels and I have a question about Kaiki and Senjougahara. I I still don't understand if they ever had an intimate relationship or ever even had sex. .. Trust me, if you guys are fan of monogatari series, it's worth it to.
Not very characteristic of a villain. Kaiki mentions that he loves money because it is valuable yet replaceable. He says that he hates things that are valuable and irreplaceable. Relationships could be an example of something valuable and irreplaceable.
The most prominent example of this is when Kaiki is approached by Senjougahara to deceive Sengoku Nadeko.Kaiki and Senjougahara talk on confrontation day [Monogatari SS]
There is a scene where Kaiki is in the washroom trying to manufacture a reason for why he could take the job. He knew he had no logical reason to take the job, as he was not offered very much money and it was potentially dangerous.

But he managed to create a very weak reason to accept the job — Senjougahara and her boyfriend Araragi had connections to Kanbaru Suruga, who is the niece of Gaen Izuko and daugher of Gaen Tooe. Kaiki lies to Senjougahara about being in Okinawa. When she calls him out on this and tells him that she will be flying to Okinawa, he proceeds to fly himself to Okinawa in order to make it seem as if he did not lie.
Granted, he still took the money, but the prospect of going against Gaen is notable. He could have just walked away — if he truly only cared about money and nothing else, this is what he should have done. Why is Kaiki Deishuu, a man who is supposed to only be driven by money, doing these things?
The connection to all of these events is Senjougahara Hitagi. Kaiki And Senjougahara Senjougahara describes him as a con-man, a fake and a liar. She holds resentment for what Kaiki did, something she says she will hold for the rest of her life.
But what really happened between these two? Senjougahara approached Kaiki hoping that he would save her from her infliction, the crab god, that removed her weight and emotions. The important part is that Kaiki began to consider Senjougahara as someone that he valued. Senjougahara in middle school was athletic, humble, friendly, and an achiever. This is a personal theory, but I think that Kaiki was trying to teach her to be more skeptical and not trust others so closely.
He probably made a genuine attempt to help Senjougahara with her infliction — but he is not a specialist, and never was. Senjougahara cut ties with Kaiki, branding him a fake, a liar, and a con-man. This failure is something that Kaiki would carry with him moving forward. Until he was provided a second chance: This was an opportunity that Kaiki could not pass up, and that is why he did everything he could to come up with a reason to accept the job.
That is also why he turned his back on Gaen, and risked his life to deceive a snake god. A chance to redeem himself.

One other important thing to note is this: The problem is that when it came to Senjougahara, Kaiki failed. And if he failed once in the past, there was a chance that he would fail again. In fact, the way this topic was covered by Ononoki made it feel like failure here was inevitable. So there was nothing to deceive in the first place. Interestingly, this was foreshadowed by Hanekawa.
Detective Kaiki missed that one crucial piece of evidence. What Kaiki proceeded to do after was his true redemption — he managed to convince Sengoku to return to being a human. But not with lies and deception, but with truths and hope.
The words Kaiki uses in this moment are truly amazing, and resonate with me because I have nothing but respect for people who create and strive to achieve. Kaiki says the following two statements: These statements are as true as it gets when it comes to achivement — which make them all the more amazing when spoken by Kaiki.
Everyone has to start somewhere. And with this Kaiki succeeds in his job; saving Senjougahara, and redeeming himself. Kaiki walks off, only to be killed by an angry middle schooler who likely was a victim of his prior con operation in the town And how do you think the middle schooler knew where Kaiki was?
Who pushed the kid to commit murder like this? In the end, Kaiki dies having redeemed himself of his greatest failure and regret.
He really is a interesting character, antagonist, and anti-hero. A job well done. Kaiki mentions Kanbaru Suruga three times in the anime: Kaiki uses Kanbaru as his ultimate reasoning for why he would accept the job to deceive Sengoku. He mentions that Senjougahara likely knew Kanbaru, and at the very least Araragi knew Kanbaru. As such, any comment I make about Senjougahara here must be taken with a grain of salt. Did she really send him the note telling him to pull out? In any case, the ways in which Senjougahara is portrayed say as much about Kaiki as they do about Senjougahara herself.
Kaiki really does think Senjougahara is less interesting, and from his perspective, I understand why.
A Comprehensive Analysis of Kaiki Deishuu – EAT Monogatari
If you read my Nekomonogatari: Recall the beloved episode 12 of Bakemonogatari: Senjougahara tells Araragi that the starlit sky is the last thing she has to give him. By doing so, Senjougahara has bound her own identity to Araragi.
Senjougahara also appears to have lost the force of will that made her such an intimidating and mesmerizing presence in Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari. Even in her first showdown with Kaiki, she held her ground and maintained her dignity. I must admit that Kaiki threw me for numerous loops during the arc. But, then again, Kaiki is the great deceiver of this show, and it could be that he has truly fooled me on everything: Even so, like Nadeko says, maybe there was a hint of truth in the lie.
That is, after all, how the best lies are constructed. Koyomi Araragi So, here we are. Ending with the boy who is truly central to this story. The Monogatari franchise may be a franchise that names its arcs after the female characters, but to even consider that anyone besides Araragi is the main character of this story is ludicrous.
Every moment of this show, in some way, reflects on or influences Araragi. Where does Araragi stand at the end of Monogatari? This is the fascinating question, when Araragi is absent for fully half the show.
Nothing illustrates this point better—that Araragi needs each and every one of them—than the moment in the Shinobu Time arc when Shinobu and Onoki ask him to choose between Shinobu, Senjougahara and Hanekawa, and Araragi desperately changes the subject. Each of these girls represents a different part of Araragi, and to choose one of them is to choose one part of himself and reject the others.
Back in Bakemonogatari, during the Suruga Monkey arc, Araragi talked about how incredibly selfish Senjougahara can be, unwilling to let a single thing important to her go. But Senjougahara is only selfish about some things; Araragi wants it all.
Does he fear his own identity—what he truly is: Does he fear relinquishing the world of apparitions to return to being human, as Hanekawa did?
Whatever the case may be, as Mayoi leaves him, Araragi is left incredibly vulnerable. The idea of letting go of even a single member of his harem is one he never considers, even if it means sitting for twenty years in the same unknown town.
Araragi is altogether incapable of making a choice. He has held on to his love for Senjougahara through all this, but he is able to do that because she fulfills a different role in his life than the others do.
Why would Araragi try to change the past, to save Mayoi?
