    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The assignment that Senjougahara is writing is actually the Gettysburg Address.

      • Senōgahara mentions "freeters" and "NEETs" during her talk to Araragi, while studying. A freeter is a Japanese expression for someone between age 15 and 34 lacking a full-time job, or are unemployed entirely (excluding homemakers and students). "NEET" holds a similar meaning, originating from the UK and standing for "Not in Employment, Education or Training."

    • QUOTES (19)

      • Hachikuji: Aryaryagi-san!
        Araragi: It's "Araragi."
        Hachikuji: Sorry, I stuttered.

      • Araragi: Hey, you remember Senjōgahara, don't you?
        Hachikuji: Ah, that tsundere, right? But the two of you are doing that "man-woman thing," right?
        Araragi: I guess.
        Hachikuji: So you say you're gonna study, but you're just gonna flirt instead, right? Going to see your lover right before the exams that can hold you back a year? That's just suicidal, Araragi-san.

      • Hachikuji: Araragi-san, just what are you looking for in a grade-schooler's body?

      • Araragi: Do you really think a staged coincidence like this is believable?!

      • Kanbaru: (at Kanbaru) Oh, by the way, Araragi-senpai. You didn't notice anything strange today, did you?
        Araragi: Not really. It was just normal. I am a bit stressed because exams are coming up. I'm headed to a study group today, too.
        Kanbaru: Study group?
        Araragi: Well, I call it that, but it's one-on-one and one-sided, so it's more like tutoring.

      • Hachikuji: Rararagi-san.
        Araragi: Hachikuji, don't sing my name like something from a musical. My name's Araragi.
        Hachikuji: Sorry. I stuttered.
        Araragi: No, it was intentional.

      • Araragi: I don't really know why, but to be completely blunt, she's been tailing me for the past few days. Honestly, it seems like she's up to something.
        Hachikuji: Perhaps she's fallen for you.
        Araragi: Huh? No way. I'm not the main character in some galge. There's no way I'd just wake up one day and be popular with the girls.
        Hachikuji: The woman in me tells me I'm right.

      • Araragi: Why do you think I'm studying?
        Senjōgahara: Because you're dumb, right?

      • Senjōgahara: You're already in your second month of your senior year. You said before you'd be fine as long as you graduate, but does that mean you're getting a job as soon as you do?
        Araragi: Well -
        Senjōgahara: Or will you be a freeter for a while? Or perhaps a NEET? Or perhaps you'll choose to enroll in a trade school?
        Araragi: Who are you, my mom?
        Senjōgahara: "Mom?" What do you mean? I'm your lover, right?

      • Senjōgahara: Shall we live together after graduation? If we did that, even with our paths split, we'd have more time together than we do now.
        Araragi: Well, it wouldn't be that bad.
        Senjōgahara: "It wouldn't be that bad?" What do you mean by that?
        Araragi: (desperately) I want to. Please let me.

      • Senjōgahara: You sigh a lot, Araragi-kun. Did you know that every time you sigh, a little bit of happiness escapes?
        Araragi: I've already done it a thousand times or so, and let my happiness escape.
        Senjōgahara: I don't care how much happiness you let escape. But I'd prefer you not sigh in front of me. It's troublesome.
        Araragi: You say some really mean things.
        Senjōgahara: I'm just saying you're troublesome due to lovesickness.

      • Araragi: Do you still have a stapler on you?
        Senjōgahara: Now that you mention it, I haven't been carrying any lately. I'm such a silly-dilly.

      • Senjōgahara: Araragi-kun, your wounds heal very quickly, don't they? So I bet it'd be okay if I just took out an eyeball.
        Araragi: Stop it! Stop it! Not my eyeball! There's nothing guilty about it! I didn't mean it like I knew her well! I'm devoted to you, Senjōgahara!

      • Senjōgahara: When I kill someone, it'll be you. I'll make you my first victim. I won't pick anyone but you. I promise.
        Araragi: I don't want that kind of twisted love!
        Senjōgahara: Isn't it nice? Try to be understanding. If I kill you, that means I'll be the one closest to you on your deathbed. Isn't it romantic?
        Araragi: No way. If someone's going to kill me, I want it to be anyone but you. I'd rather be killed any way than how you'd kill me.
        Senjōgahara: What? You hate me that much? If anyone else kills you, I'll kill that person. I have to keep my promise.

      • Senjōgahara: Hey, Araragi-kun. What's flooded above and on fire below?
        Araragi: A bath heater, right?
        Senjōgahara: Bzzt. The answer is: Kanbaru Suruga's household.
        Araragi: What are you planning on doing to the school star's house?!

      • Hanekawa: I don't want to talk like I really know all that well, but Senjōgahara has built an impregnable self field around herself just like the one you have. Everyone has a self field they call "privacy" or whatever, but for you and her, it goes beyond that and turns into a siege mentality. And for people like you, just interacting with other people is often unpleasant.

      • Hanekawa: Receiving guests is the most difficult thing for me, but not if you're the guest.

      • Senjōgahara: By the way, Araragi-kun.... I've never broken up with a man before. Hence, I won't be breaking up with you either.

      • Araragi: (to Hachikuji) Come on. I don't like this trend of explaining anything and everything about my love life. It's impossible. And I've already caught the toughest character.
        Senjōgahara: (elsewhere) I feel like I've been described unpleasantly.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • While studying, Senjōgahara is writing down (in English) the Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln's speech during the American Civil War four and a half months after the Union armies defeated those of the Confederacy at the decisive Battle of Gettysburg.
