Hitagi has to do so much convincing to Kaiki, and to act as friendly as.
Instead Nisio is only able to copy your everyday Ikari Shinji 13k from Neon Genesis Evangelion, which isn't really a hard feat in itself considering how many authors already stole the character before him, yet while mimicking what young readers could relate better to, he failed to reproduce the insightful background that made Shinji a complex human character to begin with.
So what we are left with is Ararargi Koyomi, whose main feature is behaving in a completely random fashion and contradicting himself, being at the same time a cowardly self-deluding prick and a masterful warrior of the streets whose strategies only come second to Sun Tzu, despite never knowing anything about his enemies and acting on pure recklessness.
This lack of character is often times presented as deliberate but it doesn't make it any less ridiculous. From the beginning of the book we have our protagonist's encounter with the unknown, the dark not-so-secret world of vampires and oddities, in the form of a years old lady-vampire mutilated and on the verge of death, who requires the hero's blood to survive.
And he, while contemplating how she's a monster, a killer, a beast from the beyond, decides, in spite of his aloof and 'average' personality, to sacrifice himself to save her. Are you beginning to feel the Jesus Christ vibe here? Of course, whoever was lucky enough to read or study about the Christian religion knows that Jesus was that much of a selfless character because his father led him to redeem humanity, to cancel the original sin and grant us our return to the garden of Eden someday whilst Araragi is just a guy.
Do we ever get to know why does he act that way, what are his motivations or who is he deep down? Nope, not once not ever, and considering this book is narrated in first-person from his viewpoint, it's amazing how little we get to know about him. It is at some point explained that he love breasts, big breasts, while it's also implied he as an underwear fetish, and all of these are major plot points, believe me.
Our side character, Hanekawa Tsubasa, doesn't give much more credit to the credibility of the story: She's also the damsel in distress, which means her purpose might be summed up as being kidnapped, taken as a hostage and undressing for the protagonist I wish I was joking.
Surprise of the surprises, she's also devoid of character but who would have guessed that a female protagonist labeled by her breasts size and the pattern on her undies is actually nothing more than misogynistic pandering.
Although, I have to admit at a certain point the author tried to give her some depth by having the character herself remarks how she's not that good of a person and has a hidden side which is, in fact, pretty awful.Araragi calls Senjougahara - Koyomimonogatari (Monogatari Clip)
And do we ever get to see why she affirms this or witness some events which prove such statements? Yet again, no, we don't. I guess this would be an excellent timing for the old Linkin Park's Crawling joke.
Supposedly you get to know her better in another installment of the Monogatari series and if so why are you bothering telling us now, wasting precious time, instead of waiting the right moment and book to introduce new conflicts? And then there's every other character, which compose such a superficial and poorly explored cast I don't even have anything to say about them.

Mostly their purpose is to fit into the story so that the main characters have something to do, but they are not interesting characters. With little to none explanations about the villains how are we supposed to care about the fights or feel any tension? 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? To free her from being a ghost and thus enable her to stay by his side.
But Araragi himself is being held back by them, as well. And as they continue to leave him, he is slowly, but surely, being moved to a point where he will have to change. Araragi will have to become self-sufficient. This is the genius of Monogatari. Araragi will be given the choice to change or not. He will have to decide, and his hand will be forced by the absence of all those upon whom he previously relied.
Hanekawa has become her own person. Kanbaru, I suspect, will make her exit or at least have a drastic role modulation in the upcoming Hanamonogatari, leaving the girlfriend, the one and the same partner, and the family. I think, eventually, Araragi will either have to choose between Shinobu and Senjougahara, or choose between Shinobu and becoming his own person.
