"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.

"To put it more simply, to lose Araragi-kun now would be the same as losing half of me. That’s why I want you to wait for me, for just a little bit."
“A little bit…”
“That’s right. At least until next week.”
“Please be satisfied with using Kanbaru’s flesh until then.”
“You just said something ridiculous!”
“I’ll also have Kanbaru help me with my rehabilitation during that time.”
