Hajime Ueda’s art is always so gorgeous. Loved his style ever since discovering it in the FLCL manga adaptation.
"But Araragi-san, what kind of work do you plan on doing when you grow up?"- Mayoi Hachikuji and Koyomi Araragi from Nisemonogatari “Karen Bee” Chapter 16
“Fortunately, I haven’t thought that far ahead…”
“That’s what makes you like a child.”
Hm, maybe this might work.
“I wonder if I could get a job holding up Hanekawa’s breasts so that they don’t fall?”
“What are you saying with a straight face, Araragi-kun?”
“Of course, someone had to go and invent the bra… I don’t know how much money that guy made off that, but thanks to him, I’m out of a job!”
But honestly speaking, Kanbaru’s naked body is worth checking out at least once. That girl is like a work of art. She’s not sexy, she’s beautiful. If I were a man, I might have fallen for her, but as a woman, I have to say she has perfect style.
- Hitagi Senjougahara, from Nisemonogatari Volume 1 “Karen Bee” Chapter 10
So glad that Nisemonogatari anime decided to show this clearly. Karen, a middle school senior, is taller than her older brother Koyomi, who’s a high school senior. Now, in the coming couple episodes, Karen will be in positions that make it hard to tell how freakishly tall she is, but I hope we get to see more of that throughout the series.
Koyomi: I guess I wouldn’t know, but is that [arcade] game any fun for a high schooler?
Suruga: What are you talking about? Age isn’t a factor when it comes to good games. I’ve already spent almost 3,000 yen on it today. A bunch of kids lined up behind me, but I have no intention of letting them play.
Koyomi: Using your money like that is horrible! Stop playing that game right now and let the kids play!
Suruga: Hmph. You’re saying the same thing as the clerk I chased away earlier.
Koyomi: You chased him away!?
Suruga: Since he got really angry, I had no choice but to get really angry right back.
