At her home, Hitagi Senjōgahara contemplates her past as she showers, while Koyomi waits for her. Earlier Hitagi was told to wash and change her clothes by Meme Oshino, who arranges for all of them to meet at midnight. Back at Hitagi's home, Koyomi argues with Hitagi while she gets dressed in front of him. Later that evening they meet Oshino, he explains that they are not going to attack the crab god but instead pray to it. They go before an altar, Oshino instructs her to relax, he then asks her a series of questions. His final question results in Hitagi retelling about how her mother joined a cult when Hitagi was sick, and that one night her mother brought a higher up, from the cult, home. Hitagi injured him as he attempted to sexually assault her, her mother watching without aiding her. As a result her family was broken apart; Hitagi feels that she is responsible. She opens her eyes to find a crab facing her. Koyomi and Oshino are unable to see the glowing yellow eyed, red word-bound form of the giant crab. When Hitagi is then attacked by crab god, Oshino is forced to intervene - this allows her to beg the crab for her feeling and memories - and they are returned. In a flashback it is explained how her mother joined the cult, and how the attack on Hitagi resulted in a broken family; that she met a crab which took her feelings (思い?, omoi) (weight (重み?, omomi)) and memories of her mother. Hitagi now has her memories and feeling of her mother back, and even though she has forever lost her mother, she admits to be glad to have become Koyomi's friend.

Tsubasa then arrives, saying that she was passing by. She asks Koyomi about his relationship with Hitagi, but he isn't able to give her a definite answer.

Mayoi was put under the custody of her father, and had any contact with her mother deliberately cut off to the point where Mayoi could barely recognize the face of her mother. Hitagi then arrives and apologizes to Koyomi. She reveals that Mayoi does not exist, as she is actually dead. As a ghost, she can only be seen by those who have a subconscious desire not to return home. As a result, Hitagi could not see Mayoi and didn't say anything because she feared that she might be "different" again. The information Oshino provides helps them find Mayoi's mother's house, but it is a vacant lot. However, Mayoi is happy and disappears, saying she's finally home. Afterwards, Hitagi admits that she is in love with Koyomi, and she is deeply intrigued by his desire to help anyone in need. Koyomi responds to her feelings with the precondition that they would not hide things from each other.

"Suruga Monkey, Part One"
"Suruga Monkī Sono Ichi" (するがモンキー 其ノ壹) 
"staple stable"
("ambivalent world" by Miyuki Sawashiro)
Seiko Erisawa August 8, 2009[14]
Koyomi needs to study for upcoming exams and is on his way to Hitagi's house for help. On the way there, Mayoi teases him about his one-on-one "study" session. Suruga Kanbaru, an underclassman, meets him as she is running, and she voices her admiration for him. Koyomi tries to get her to leave, however he is unable to until Hitagi is mentioned, at which point Suruga runs off. At the study session with Hitagi, the two discuss their future after high school, but things quickly deteriorate when Koyomi mentions Suruga. Hitagi and Suruga were friends in middle school and Suruga may have even had a crush on her, but they had a falling-out in high school. After studying, Koyomi calls Tsubasa for more details about them, but she warns him to mind his relationship with Hitagi and not to dig too deeply into her past too quickly. On his way to Oshino to drop Hitagi's payment off, Koyomi is viciously attacked by a person wearing a raincoat. During the fight he sees that the assailant has bandages dangling from its left arm. Koyomi is left bruised and bleeding on railroad tracks. Hitagi finds him lying there and tells him that he had forgotten the payment that he was supposed to be delivering. 
"Suruga Monkey, Part Two"
"Suruga Monkī Sono Ni" (するがモンキー 其ノ貳) 
"staple stable"
("ambivalent world")
Koge-Donbo August 21, 2009[14]
Hitagi says she believes that Koyomi was hit by a car. He says he stumbled, which she seems to accept. Koyomi goes to Suruga's house, and finds that her room is filled with red books. She apologizes for beating him up the previous night. Koyomi asks about her unnatural strength, and she reveals that she literally has a monkey's paw. She also bluntly states that she is a lesbian, which is hard for Koyomi to swallow. Koyomi then takes Suruga to visit Oshino for help, where he determines that the arm is actually a lesser devil's, since a monkey's paw doesn't attach itself to its owner. As such, the arm will take Suruga's soul once three wishes are fulfilled. 
"Suruga Monkey, Part Three"
"Suruga Monkī Sono San" (するがモンキー 其ノ參) 
"ambivalent world" Hekiru Hikawa August 28, 2009[14]
Inheriting a mummified hand from her mother, Suruga first wished on it to run quickly so that she could win a local race in 4th grade. Soon after, four of the competitors were hospitalized due to an assault from a monster dressed in a raincoat. Suruga suspected the hand may be acting like a monkey's paw, wherein a wish is granted in an unexpected way. She abstained from wishing upon the arm for many years, coming close once to wish for help with Hitagi's crab problem, but such a wish would probably not have been granted, as the arm only manifests negative wishes, especially the hidden intentions of them (such as the students being beat up, revenge for Suruga's being outcast). However, after seeing Koyomi and Hitagi in a relationship, she became insanely jealous, and wished upon the arm to be with Hitagi, without noticing that the hand had grown into an arm and attached itself to her. Oshino surmises that her first granted wish had already caused the devil to take a portion of her soul, leading to the hand's growth. He offers the solution of cutting off the arm, a suitable price in exchange for nearly killing Koyomi (a result of the hidden side of her second wish). Koyomi objects to this, and instead, opts to defeat the devil to dissolve its contract. To prepare for the fight, he gives some of his blood to Shinobu in order to boost his limited vampiric powers. Despite that, he still gets literally shredded apart by the devil, and is saved at the last moment by Oshino's intervention. He called for Hitagi, who notes that Koyomi had hidden the entire situation from her, against his precondition for their relationship. With her appearance, the devil is unable to continue the attack without invalidating either half of the wish, so the contract is dissolved. However, even though the devil is gone, her arm still has not fully recovered. In the end, she becomes good friends with both Koyomi and Hitagi. 
"Nadeko Snake, Part One"
"Nadeko Suneiku Sono Ichi" (なでこスネイク 其ノ壹) 

("Ren'ai Circulation" (恋愛サーキュレーション?, Ren'ai Sākyurēshon, "Love Circulation") by Kana Hanazawa)
Machiko Kyō September 4, 2009[15]
Koyomi and Suruga travel to an abandoned shrine in order to perform a job for Oshino. As they climb the mountain the shrine is located on, they pass a girl running down the path, who exchanges only brief glances before continuing in the other direction. Once they reach the shrine, Koyomi and Suruga discover a number of dismembered snake corpses in what appears to be some sort of ritual. They both quickly decide to leave. The next day, Koyomi and Tsubasa go to a bookstore, where they begin to converse. Tsubasa warns Koyomi that he and Hitagi must set down boundaries in their relationship if it is to last. She then leaves after getting a sudden headache. Koyomi then meets the girl again, who he finally realizes is Nadeko Sengoku, a friend of his sisters whom he met as a child. He and Suruga intercept her at the shrine, and return to Koyomi's house. Once there, Nadeko takes off her clothes, revealing snakelike skin, and pleads for Koyomi to save her.

"Ren'ai Circulation" Akiman September 11, 2009[15]
Oshino informs Koyomi that Nadeko is under the effects of a Snake Constrictor, a snake spirit that slowly constricts the life out of its victim. Nadeko explains that it is a curse a classmate placed on her after Nadeko inadvertently rejected the confession of a boy the classmate liked. Normally, a curse placed by an amateur would be harmless, but Nadeko accidentally made the curse worse by performing her ritual at the shrine, which has been corrupted by Shinobu's presence. Koyomi obtains a special charm that will banish the Snake Constrictor and they return to the shrine. While the ritual is seemingly successful, Koyomi realizes that Nadeko is under the attack of two Snake Constrictors, the second being placed by the rejected boy. Once the first one is banished, Koyomi is forced to battle the second to keep it from killing Nadeko. He and Suruga manage to chase it off, but Koyomi feels guilty for not being able to destroy it, as the Snake Constrictor will return to the person who originally placed the curse.

He finds her there still in her pajamas and wearing a hat. They talk about her recent headaches and Koyomi persuades her to take her hat off. He finds out that she had grown cat ears. They agree to go to Oshino’s place. When they reach there, they find him crouching, burying something in the dirt. Oshino asks them to come in and hits the side of Tsubasa’s head, knocking her out.

"sugar sweet nightmare" Hikaru Nakamura February 23, 2010 (ONA)[16]
After suppressing the cat, Oshino explains Tsubasa's situation to Koyomi. Koyomi realizes that he may need Shinobu's powers to help him bottle up the oddity. The problem escalates when Koyomi learns that Shinobu has gone missing. Enlisting the help of his friends, he looks for Shinobu to no avail. The cat soon escapes from Oshino, then goes after Koyomi; this time, however, she sides with him and aids in searching for Shinobu. The two have conversations regarding Koyomi's interactions with oddities while they scour the city. The search proves to be difficult even with the cat's keen sense of smell and hearing. The conversation gradually switches over to Tsubasa's situation. The cat explains that there is a way to confine her without relying on a vampire, that she is the personification of Tsubasa's stress, and that she knows exactly what is causing it. She remarks that Koyomi can deal with it easily. The oddity then reveals that Tsubasa being possessed by the cat was because of the stress that she felt from her unrequited love for Koyomi, and that the oddity itself may be sealed away for good if Koyomi falls in love with Tsubasa. 
"Tsubasa Cat, Part Five"
"Tsubasa Kyatto Sono Go" (つばさキャット 其ノ伍) 
"sugar sweet nightmare" Akio Watanabe June 25, 2010 (ONA)[16]
Koyomi is confused after hearing that Tsubasa loved him as he heard from the cat. After arguing with the cat that "it was a mistake", the cat tells him that there is another way to suppress the stress for good, to kill him. Koyomi thinks that he could agree with this because he owes Tsubasa his life, but Hitagi comes to his mind and he decides he does not want to die. The cat tells him that no one would help him in this situation. Koyomi calls out Shinobu's name yelling for her help, and the vampire girl suddenly appears from Koyomi's shadow. Everything is settled after Shinobu bites the cat's neck and it reverts back to Tsubasa. The next day before school starts, Koyomi goes to Oshino's place to bring Shinobu back to him. It seems that nothing is left in the ruined cram school that used to be Oshino's place. After school, Koyomi, Hitagi, Suruga and Tsubasa go back to Oshino's place searching for him. It seems he has left the place, making Koyomi believe that Oshino believed he could handle the problems concerning Tsubasa and Shinobu.

At the shop, Koyomi asks Shinobu if she knew anything about Yotsugi or Yozuru; but, much to his surprise, he finds Kaiki sitting on a nearby table and pays him up for information about them. Kaiki reveals that Yozuru and her familiar Yotsugi are supernatural hunters specializing in immortal beings. Wondering if he or Shinobu may be targeted by them, Koyomi returns home just to find both in front of it. When Tsukihi opens the door for them, Yotsugi instantly attacks her, tearing her body apart. A furious Koyomi launches himself at her, but is easily subdued by Yozuru, who shows him that surprisingly, Tsukihi's body is already restored. She also explains that the Tsukihi in front of him is not his true sister but a phoenix assuming her identity. Shinobu threatens to attack the duo, and Yozuru, despite knowing that the vampire has not enough power to stop her, decides to leave, promising to return in the following day to slay Tsukihi, killing both Koyomi and Shinobu too if they try to stop her again.

Soon after, Tsubasa has an encounter with an apparition in the form of a huge white tiger who just passes by her and upon arriving at school she tells Hitagi about it. Hitagi points out that though Koyomi is the best person to assist her, Tsubasa did not call for his help at all, also remembering that he always stood for them without the need of asking him. Some time later, Tsubasa and Hitagi watch smoke rising from afar and Tsubasa discovers that her house is on fire. With her house destroyed and no place to sleep, Tsubasa claims to her parents that she will sleep at a friend's house, but she decides to spend the night at the abandoned cram school where Oshino lived instead. After learning about her situation, Hitagi looks for her and upon finding Tsubasa, she takes her to her house, suspecting that the white tiger she saw might have some connection with the fire. After deciding to skip school for the next day, Hitagi and Tsubasa receive a mail from Koyomi, where he states that he must leave for a while to deal with some business of his and as they are about to take a bath together, Hitagi asks Tsubasa if she still loves Koyomi.

On the same day, Tsubasa meets Suruga at the school and learns from her that Koyomi had sent a message to her, and from the message she deduces that he wants to meet her later that night at the abandoned cram school. Upon returning to Hitagi's house, where she meets her father, Tsubasa relays to her what she learned from Suruga, and both agree to not meddle in Koyomi's affairs this time. They are later visited by Karen and Tsukihi who offer their house for Tsubasa to take shelter. Tsubasa accepts their offer, just to later learn that she must sleep in Koyomi's room.

The mother explains that while having Tsubasa as a guest is no burden to them, she should not consider the Araragi family as her own. Mrs. Araragi also explains that averting one's eyes from the truth isn't running away from the problem, mentioning Tsubasa's strained relationship with her own parents. Later, while walking through a park, Tsubasa encounters a man named "Mr. Episode", who is a half-vampire and who once almost killed her. He was also accompanied by a woman named Izuko Gaen, whom Meme referred to as his senpai. Gaen claims she knows everything, but surprises Tsubasa when she shows her knowledge on Tsubasa's feelings towards Koyomi as well as her tiger problem. Gaen and Mr. Episode depart, after saying that Tsubasa's problem is her own, and only she can solve it. Tsubasa goes to the library to research "Kako", what Gaen called the Tiger, but finds nothing. She calls Hitagi, whom expresses her concern that Gaen named the Tiger "Kako" herself, to illustrate that "Gaen" was the maiden name of Kanbaru and her mother. Hitagi explains that Tsubasa and the burnings are linked, as, wherever Tsubasa sleeps, the place burns down soon after; Hitagi and Koyomi's houses may eventually be included. Tsubasa returns to the Araragi house, to be forced into a game of cards with Karen and Tsukihi. They discuss what the words "fire" and "flame" mean and the sister's boyfriends. Tsubasa explains that Koyomi refuses to acknowledge the sister's boyfriends because of envy, then realizes that she is being jealous. As she prepares to confront the tiger, Tsubasa believes that she may never be able to see Koyomi again, and after attempting to leave her own mark in Koyomi's room so he remembers her, she takes a picture of herself and sends it to someone, and writes a note to her other self, in hopes that they can share each other's knowledge and feelings.

However, they find that Oshino had put a different charm that prevents them from using its powers and when night falls they are suddenly surrounded by undead beings. After escaping, Shinobu realizes that the undead are not actually zombies, but vampires who lost their master, with said master must be none other than herself. According to her conclusions, during "Tsubasa Cat," when Shinobu ran away from home, it was Mayoi who helped Koyomi find her. But because she never became a ghost in the current timeline, Mayoi never met Koyomi, and they never became friends. Thus, he never managed to find Shinobu, leading him to be killed by the Cursed Cat. As a consequence, Shinobu starting a worldwide vampire infection (having previously pondered destroying the world) before eventually killing herself. Looking for survivors, Koyomi and Shinobu decide to use some fireworks to bring the attention of whoever managed to escape with their lives, but it ended drawing the undead to them once more.

She exposes Mayoi as a "ghost of a ghost", who should have passed on on Mother's Day, when she finally found her way home; she also stopped leading people astray, neglecting her duty as a lost cow. Gaen leaves to allow Koyomi and Mayoi to process this, and Mayoi realizes she has to pass on, rather than be eaten by the darkness. Bidding Koyomi farewell, she kisses him and confesses her love for him before vanishing. Four months later, Koyomi tells the story of the incident to only one person—Ougi Oshino.

Kaiki asks her several questions about her relationship with Koyomi, confirming her twisted conception of unrequited love and that she still means to kill Koyomi and Hitagi. Kaiki takes his leave after giving Nadeko some yarn for cat's cradle to occupy her time, promising to return before she perfects any patterns.

Returning from his visit at the Polar Snake Shrine, Kaiki asks Hitagi to meet him again, ending up in a Mister Donut restaurant. Kaiki claims that it will be easy for him to deceive Nadeko as at her current condition, she can't doubt anyone - she has turned even more childish than she was in her human state, unable to detect any ill will. He reveals his plan to spare Koyomi and the others by lying to her that they died in an accident, thus he needs Hitagi to convince Koyomi to cease all connections with Nadeko. Hitagi, relieved and crying, thanks him for his services. On the following day, Kaiki is approached by Yotsugi who comes with an ultimatum from Gaen urging him to pull off his scheme to deceive Nadeko, claiming that the stake is too high and the entire city may be destroyed should he fail. Despite accepting ¥3,000,000 as compensation from Gaen, Kaiki moves on with his plan and pays another visit to Nadeko, claiming that he has a special wish she can fulfill and he will keep visiting her in a 100 visit cycle. Nadeko cheerfully tells him that she destroyed the cat's cradle yarn and used a white snake instead. Terrified, he determines she is not only an idiot, but also insane. After the meetup, Kaiki tricks Nadeko's parents to have them leave their house and he takes the opportunity to investigate her room, getting startled upon finding out what she kept hidden inside her closet.

Kaiki returns to his hotelroom and finds an envelope with an anonymous message telling him to pull off. After tearing it up and flushing it in the toilet, he contacts Hitagi, telling her about the incident with Gaen and Yotsugi. He asks her if anyone else could profit from having him stop his plans to deceive Nadeko, however she has no idea who could have such goals. She asked if she could see the message, but Kaiki noted that he destroyed it already. Before hanging up, Hitagi warns him to beware of Nadeko. On the following day, Kaiki pays another visit to Nadeko just as promised, but this time he offers ¥20,000 and a bottle of sake instead of the usual ¥10,000, much to Nadeko's joy. Returning from the temple, Kaiki is approached by Hanekawa who wants to talk to him. As they return to the city on a cab, Hanekawa reveals that she had just returned from her search for Oshino overseas without Hitagi's and Araragi's knowledge and even though she knew that continuing to look for him is futile, she intends to depart again on the following day. It turned out that Gaen personally warned Hanekawa to stay out of the intrigue. She invites Kaiki to her hotelroom. Kaiki, after making sure she is on their side, suggests her to exchange information with him.

Kaiki learns from Tsubasa that strange phenomena have been happening in the town even before Shinobu arrived and because of that, Gaen was intending to have her become the new god of the Polar Shrine. However, because of Koyomi's interference, her plans have failed and Nadeko turned into a god instead. Tsubasa believes that Nadeko actually does not care about anything or anybody at all, and most likely doesn't really love "Big Brother Koyomi", thus the reason for her behavior. She is also worried if Kaiki is able to pull off the scam. On the occasion, Tsubasa asks Kaiki if Oshino has any relatives like a niece and he affirms that just like him, Oshino does not have a family at all, including siblings or such, making the existence of Ougi Oshino very suspicious. Through the following days, Kaiki keeps visiting Nadeko to play with her and bring her presents until the day of Koyomi and Hitagi's graduation finally arrives. After having a final conversation with Hitagi by phone, during which she demands him to never set foot in the city again once the job is done, Kaiki has a short meeting with Yotsugi on the way to the shrine. She repeats her warning and claims Kaiki won't be able to deceive Nadeko. On the occasion, it is revealed that Kaiki used his wits to bring down a cult that was deceiving Hitagi's mother but that ultimately led her to join another cult instead and for Hitagi's sake, he had her mother divorce and leave her family. Upon meeting Nadeko at the shrine, Kaiki attempts to deceive her as planned by claiming that Koyomi, Hitagi and Shinobu were killed in a traffic accident in the previous night, however, she instantly recognizes the lie.

Kaiki realizes that he failed to deceive Nadeko because she never trusted him at all, and because she was previously deceived by Ougi into claiming the charm and becoming a god. Nadeko unleashes a swarm of snakes onto the entire Polar Snake Shrine, immobilizing Kaiki. Believing that he was sent by Koyomi, she contemplates killing his sisters, Kanbaru, Hanekawa and Mayoi as well to punish him, until Kaiki reveals that he found out her secret aspiration to become a manga artist, as many drawings were hidden in her private closet. Embarrassed for having her secret revealed, Nadeko starts punching and kicking Kaiki as he tries to persuade her. He claims that eventually her parents will open the closet as well and find out about her secret, unless she renounces her godhood and returns home. After convincing her that she should forget about Koyomi entirely and pursue her true ambitions instead, she agrees to get deceived again. Kaiki implants a fake slug apparition into her body to have her uncounscious during the exorcism, but he's interrupted by Koyomi rushing into the shrine. Claiming that he was sent by Gaen as a professional to deal with Nadeko, Kaiki extracts the snake charm from her body and returns it to him. Kaiki also instructs Koyomi to cut all connections with Nadeko for her sake, as she must move on with her life by herself - his relationship and romance with her would only make her a useless human being. After calling Hitagi and confirming that his job is done, Kaiki bids farewell to her and realizes that the secret message at his hotel was sent by no other than Hitagi herself, as she knew it would have him push further with his job instead of discouraging him, and Gaen's message to him probably was for the same purpose. As he leaves the city, Kaiki is ambushed and mortally wounded by one of the middle schoolers he formerly deceived, with it being none other than the one who cursed Nadeko. Before he passes out, he hears Ougi's name, implying that he was sent by her. As Kaiki is losing consciousness, the middle schooler attacks him once again.

August 16, 2014
Set after the graduation of Koyomi Araragi and Hitagi Senjougahara, Suruga Kanbaru begins her third year in high school. She continues to deal with her left hand that had been turned monstrous through the use of her mother's monkey paw charm. After hearing rumors from Ougi of a "Devil" that can solve one's problems, Suruga sets out to find this person. She secretly fears that this person is her. However, she soon discovers that the "Devil" is her former basketball rival from junior high, Rouka Numachi. Rouka explains that she took on the role of the "Devil" after a leg injury ended her basketball career three years prior. She continues by saying that her work as the "Devil" is merely free counseling. Suruga counters by arguing that her clients are under the impression that the "Devil" is able to magically solve their problems. In essence, she's lying to these people. Rouka explains that in assuring her clients that she will solve their problems, she frees them from worrying about them. The problems themselves are trivial, and get resolved on their own with time. She even says that if a person comes to her with a truly serious matter, she'll refer them an appropriate institution, such as the police. Rouka explains that her position as the "Devil" allows her to be a collector of other people's misfortunes, something she finds joy in. Suruga doesn't agree with the dishonesty or her reasons, but she concedes that as long as Rouka isn't hurting anyone, she won't stop her. She is secretly relieved that she isn't the "Devil". Suruga awakes the next morning to find that her left arm has returned to normal.

With her hand restored, Suruga attempts to adjust to this change, and how it impacts her daily life. She has many questions for the "Devil" who cured her, but she is informed by Ougi that the "Devil" has vanished, and is no longer giving counsel to others. Suruga attempts to locate the whereabouts of Rouka, but no one seems to know where she is or what she's doing. In an attempt to find some answers, she boards a train to another town. When she arrives, she is met by none other than Deishu Kaiki. She attempts to flee, but Kaiki easily outruns her. Knowing when she's beaten, Suruga agrees to accompany him. Kaiki takes her to a yakiniku restaurant, and explains his motivations. Kaiki was in love with Suruga's mother during his college days. Fate kept them separated, and it was Suruga's mother's wish that if she were to die, Kaiki would look after Suruga. Suruga is skeptical of his 'good will' toward her because of her devotion to Kaiki's nemesis, Hitagi. Kaiki reassures her that he will not deceive her. In the end, she accepts his offer. Kaiki then reveals that he knew about Suruga's monkey paw, and that a person interested in collecting items like that would visit her soon. He implores her to let the collector have it, as the monkey paw is dangerous. Suruga then asks him how he knew she would be at the train station earlier. He says that Rouka told him.

Contrary to her appearance as an injured cripple, Rouka is more than a match for Suruga. Rouka and Suruga then recount their stories. Suruga tells the story of the times she used the monkey's paw, and how Koyomi and Hitagi helped her. Rouka, in turn, reveals that she not only has Suruga's monkey paw, but a monkey's leg as well. She explains that after her injury, a friend visiting her in the hospital confided in her about a personal issue. Hearing another person's problems cheered Rouka up, and so she began collecting the misfortunes of others as the "Devil".

Rouka continues her explanation from the previous episode, recalling how she came to know Kaiki. As Kaiki is a con artist, and Rouka a collector, their methodologies are similar in how they attract their clients. They butted heads at one point, and resolved to simply pass information between them, and not interfere with the other. Finally she reveals why she came to collect devil parts. A person came to her with a problem, and like usual Rouka planned to listen. The girl revealed that she had a monkey leg, and her wish caused her to attack her own mother, similar to Suruga's wish on her paw. For the first time, Rouka actually wanted to help someone, but as nothing more than a collector of misfortune, she was unable to do anything beyond embracing the girl and telling her it would be alright. Rouka then thinks to contact Kaiki, but discovers the next morning that she now had the monkey leg. It replaced her injured leg. This begins Rouka's collection of devil parts, which she sees as opponents to her hobby as a collector of misfortune. With everything explained, Rouka leaves Suruga, expecting to not see her again. At home, Suruga is still adjusting to her arm being normal. She receives news from Karen Araragi on the current status of Rouka. Apparently Rouka committed suicide over three years prior, meaning the Rouka she had talked to was a ghost the whole time. To clear her head, Suruga decides to go for a run. She runs hard and collapses from exhaustion in the middle of the road. A car drives up to her, and as Suruga attempts to get out of the way, the driver reveals himself to be Koyomi. Koyomi elects to drive Suruga back into town. Along the way, Suruga vaguely confides in Koyomi, telling him of how in their own ways, Rouka, Kaiki, and even her own mother had told her to stay out of this issue, and that time would make things okay in the end. As a man of action, Koyomi rejects this, and encourages Suruga to face her problems if she wants them to be solved. Suruga, emboldened by Koyomi's words, agrees.

Upon returning home, Suruga finds a package left to her by Kaiki. It is a mummified monkey's head. Now armed with the proper leverage and conviction, Suruga calls out Rouka for a basketball rematch. Using the head as bait, Suruga challenges Rouka for control of the devil parts. When asked for a reason, initially Suruga says that she fears what Rouka would become if she were to gather all the devil parts, but she later admits that it is because she despises Rouka. Rouka warns her that because the stakes are so high, she'll make full use of her devil parts, including her hand and leg, giving her an advantage. Suruga proposes that they play only a single round, with the two of them utilizing their strongest areas of play. Suruga is an offensive powerhouse, and Rouka is a defensive specialist. If Suruga is able to make a basket, she wins. If not, Rouka wins. After a bit of probing, Rouka reveals that she has no idea that she committed suicide, and is now a ghost, shocking Suruga. Suruga realizes that she's also going to be fighting to make Rouka realize that she's dead. And in doing so she'll confirm that she and Rouka are in fact, different people. Suruga begins her match with Rouka. From the start, she realizes that she won't be able to get around Rouka's defense. But in a moment of quick thinking, Suruga passes the ball to Rouka. As Rouka tenses up in shock over the unexpected move, Suruga swiftly steals the ball from Rouka's hands and gets around her. Suruga goes for a dunk, but Rouka challenges her at the top of her jump. The dunk goes in. In the aftermath, the two share a laugh over the match. Rouka reveals that due to her play style and her personality, her teammates never passed her the ball very often, which is why it surprised her when her opponent did it. Basking in defeat, Rouka encourages Suruga to go back to playing basketball, or at least do something with her talents instead of just watching from the sidelines. As Suruga is about to respond, she looks down to find that Rouka has disappeared, gone to the afterlife. In her place she left behind all of the devil parts that she had collected. Suruga gathers the parts, and finally admits that the whole time she had been jealous of Rouka. The next day Suruga awakes to find Koyomi, who is there to help her clean her room. She asks Koyomi to have Shinobu dispose of the mummified monkey parts. The two discuss the previous day's events, and talk more on what it means for her as a person. Finally, Koyomi gives Suruga a haircut, one that is more suited for playing sports.

"Yotsugi Doll, Part One"
"Yotsugi Dōru Sono Ichi" (よつぎドール 其ノ壹) 
"Orange Mint" (オレンジミント?, Orenji Minto) by Saori Hayami December 31, 2014
The arc opens with Koyomi Araragi and Shinobu Oshino musing about the true nature of Shikigami doll Yotsugi Ononoki. Koyomi supposes that as an apparition, Yotsugi isn't well suited to life among humans, in spite of her attempts at being human-like. She was, after all, created from a human corpse, by other humans. Shinobu disputes this, saying that the human parts of Yotsugi's nature are because she needs to interact with humans, rather than a desire of hers to become human. Koyomi goes on to consider the nature of apparitions in general, concluding that apparitions are the way they are because people believe them to be so. Koyomi's monologue concludes by foreshadowing that this arc is the beginning of the end of the series. The story begins with Koyomi being woken up by his sisters, Karen and Tsukihi Araragi. Koyomi realizes that the next day is Valentine's Day, but Karen exclaims that he doesn't have the time to worry about that, as his college entrance exams are coming up soon. Karen leaves to go on a run, instructing Koyomi to prepare a bath for her. After Karen leaves, Koyomi and Tsukihi discuss why Karen hasn't joined any athletic teams. Koyomi states that Karen is a talented individual, and that by committing herself to just karate, and her half of the Fire Sisters, she is letting her talent go to waste. While Tsukihi is annoyed that Koyomi would suggest breaking up the duo, she admits that she realizes that Karen will leave on her own, to do her own thing. Koyomi recognizes the need for his sisters to wake up and be more mature about how they conduct themselves. After preparing the bath for Karen, Koyomi decides to use it for himself. He is caught by Tsukihi, who also plans on using the bath. The two briefly argue over who should get to go first, before compromising. The two bathe together. Tsukihi mentions that Nadeko Sengoku was recently released from the hospital after her ordeal as a snake god. Koyomi responds neutrally. While he is happy that Nadeko turned out okay, he knows that it's for the best if he stays out of her life. Moreover, Koyomi realizes that without a god, the shrine area will continue to accumulate dark spiritual energy, which in turn will cause more apparition problems for his town. He resolves to do his best to put things in balance before leaving for college. Tsukihi is concerned with how much pressure and responsibility Koyomi holds for himself, telling him that he shouldn't worry so much. Koyomi then realizes that his own reflection isn't showing up in the bathroom mirror. As if he had become a real vampire.

Koyomi narrowly avoids letting Tsukihi see that he has no reflection. The pair are then caught by Karen, who proceeds to beat them up. Later, Koyomi explains his discovery to Shinobu. Shinobu concludes that Koyomi has indeed turned into a vampire. Koyomi protests, pointing out an injury to his toe that had been inflicted by Tsukihi earlier. It hadn't healed, which it should have if he were a true vampire. Shinobu corrects him, saying that while it hadn't healed much on the surface, the toe actually had been broken, and it was the bone that had been healing. Shinobu suggests that Koyomi see a specialist, Yozuru Kagenui. Koyomi agrees, but doesn't know how to contact her, or Yotsugi. Shinobu then suggests contacting Kaiki, and using him to get through to Yozuru, but Koyomi refuses on account of his past grievances with Kaiki. Shinobu finally suggests Izuko Gaen. Both she and Koyomi have reservations about getting involved with her, but they agree that their options are limited. As Koyomi picks up his phone to contact Izuko, he sees that she has already messaged him. She tells him to go to an arcade at a certain time that night. Tsukihi then storms into Koyomi's room and berates him for leaving her to deal with Karen by herself. She demands that he apologize. Koyomi instead instructs Tsukihi to convince Karen that the two of them should sleep over at Suruga Kanbaru's house that night. He reasons that if he's going to be involved with Yozuru and Yotsugi, Tsukihi might be in danger, as she is still an immortal phoenix. Tsukihi reluctantly agrees. That night, Koyomi and Shinobu go to the arcade, where they find Yotsugi as a motionless doll inside of a claw machine. She is unresponsive, resulting in Koyomi having to play the game in order to get her out. It takes him twelve tries. After claiming Yotsugi, Yozuru appears, and the group discusses Koyomi's situation at the ruins of the abandoned cram school. Yozuru examines Koyomi's toe, and shows him that it is completely healed. Koyomi is surprised, as it healed much faster than it had been earlier. Yotsugi points out what time it is, and Koyomi remembers that a vampire's powers are stronger at night. She also mentions that vampires are healed by moonlight. As Yotsugi analyzes Koyomi's foot, Yozuru runs another test on Koyomi, breaking two of his fingers. Koyomi is stunned, but Yozuru explains that vampires are able to consciously heal their injuries if they concentrate on them. Through some effort, Koyomi heals his fingers. With the tests done and analysis complete, Yozuru and Yotsugi reveal their results. Yotsugi explains that currently, Koyomi is slowly turning into a vampire. Koyomi is unfazed, stating that due to his encounters with other apparitions, he has turned into a vampire many times before, albeit on a temporary basis. Yotsugi then explains that it is because he turned into a vampire so much that he is now becoming a vampire. Or rather, he became accustomed to being a vampire, which is why his soul is starting to lean in that direction. Yozuru says that while this sort of thing isn't unheard of, Meme Oshino couldn't have predicted it was going to happen. Yotsugi goes on to explain that an aggravating factor was the incident with Sengoku and the snake god. During the intervening time when Sengoku was lording over the shrine, Koyomi used his powers as a vampire every day in an effort to save her. Koyomi accepts the situation, and asks for what he should to do to undo the progress of his transformation. Yotsugi replies that there is no way to fix it.

As Yotsugi's words sink in, Koyomi remains unfazed. He reasons that his experiences as a vampire must have come with a price. One that he should have to pay. Yozuru commends Koyomi for his acceptance, but tells him that while there is no way to undo the progress of his transformation, there is a way he can stop it from progressing further: he must no longer use his powers as a vampire. Yotsugi informs Koyomi that he can still use his blood to feed Shinobu, but he shouldn't do it too often, and not to the point where he gains any powers. Yozuru warns him that if he were to progress further toward being a vampire, she would have to kill him, as is her duty as a specialist. This raises Shinobu's ire, and she tells Yozuru that if Koyomi were to die, the restraints on her would be released, returning her to her status as lord of the vampires. She would use that power to kill Yozuru. Yozuru accepts the challenge. Yotsugi, not wanting to see the others fight, urges Koyomi to never use his powers again, in order to keep things the way they are. Reluctantly, Koyomi promises to stop using his powers. Internally, however, he has doubts as to whether or not he can. He knows that if someone he cares about were going to die he wouldn't hesitate to use his powers to save them. Later, as Koyomi and Yozuru are discussing the reasoning behind her focus on killing immortal apparations, Yozuru receives a call from Izuko. Yozuru tells Koyomi and Yotsugi to go to Suruga's house immediately, to check on his sisters. They arrive to find not only Koyomi's sisters, but also Suruga missing. In their place is a series of paper cranes. Yotsugi explains that the bird shape indicates that the kidnapper is after Tsukihi, the phoenix. They meet back up with Yozuru, who explains that the man behind the kidnapping is Teori Tadatsuru, an apparation specialist and doll master. Like Yozuru, Teori is a specialist who focuses on killing immortal apparitions. Yozuru warns Koyomi that he can't use his powers as a vampire to solve this, nor can Shinobu. Koyomi remarks on the costs of his vampire power usage, likening it to divine punishment. Yotsugi and Yozuru disagree, stating that the kidnapping happening the day Koyomi finds out he transformed into vampire is much too coincidental. Koyomi and Yozuru then discuss possibilities for Teori's motivations, and who he is as a specialist. Yozuru says that Teori doesn't hold much in the way of convictions, only that he finds apparitions to be beautiful. Teori himself is an artist, and as a specialist he goes around like Meme, mediating between apparitions and humans. Yozuru then reveals that Teori's true targets are Koyomi and Shinobu, and as Teori operates outside of Izuko's network of specialists, Meme's assertion that Koyomi and Shinobu are harmless means nothing to Teori. The group then looks through the paper cranes, and finds one with Teori's location: the North Shirahebi Shrine. Yotsugi and Koyomi prepare to jump to a location near the mountain where the shrine is. Yozuru will proceed to the shrine on her own, but she tells Koyomi to do things when he feels it's right, and not to wait for her.

Koyomi and Yotsugi land at the base of the mountain, where they are surprisingly met by Ougi Oshino. She talks with Koyomi for a while about his current situation and his upcoming confrontation with Teori. Koyomi and Yotsugi begin their journey up the mountain. The two discuss how they will be able to rescue Koyomi's sisters and Suruga. Koyomi hopes that they'll be able to sneak past Teori and get them without him noticing, but Yotsugi is doubtful of that plan. She expects that Koyomi will have to convince Teori to let them go, as this is how Koyomi normally deals with his opponents. Yotsugi then briefly explains how she was created. Back during their college days, Yozuru, Teori, Meme, and Deishu Kaiki did a project to create an artificial shikigami from the corpse of a human, under the direction of Izuko. Yozuru and Teori both fought for 'ownership' of Yotsugi, but in the end, Yotsugi chose to stay with Yozuru. This led to a falling out between Yozuru and Teori. Yotsugi discloses that the reason she is telling Koyomi this is because, if things were dire, he could choose to hand over Yotsugi to Teori in order to resolve the situation. Koyomi refuses to consider the option. He instead instructs Yotsugi to find the hostages, and use her power to immediately get away, while he distracts Teori. Yotsugi points out that if she were to leave, Koyomi and Shinobu would be left helpless before Teori. Yotsugi halfheartedly suggests offering Shinobu to Teori, which Koyomi refuses. Yotsugi points out that Koyomi's desire to have the hostages rescued while not being willing to give up either Yotsugi, Shinobu, or himself shows a lack of maturity. She then suggests that if she were to get close enough to Teori, she could use her powers to kill him before he has a chance to react. Koyomi is shocked at the suggestion. He wants to preserve what humanity is left in Yotsugi, and if she were to kill Teori, she would lose it. The two reach the shrine, and observe Teori. He is sitting on the offertory box, folding origami. Koyomi realizes that he is counting time with that: once the box is full of origami, time is up. Koyomi decides to use his simple decoy plan, and Yotsugi leaves to sneak in through the rear of the shrine. As Koyomi is preparing to confront Teori, Shinobu appears from his shadow. She tells him that she doesn't care if he is no longer human, so if Koyomi is about to die, she'll turn him into a full vampire. Koyomi then confronts Teori. Teori reveals that both he and Yozuru have a curse upon them that prevents them from walking on the ground. He then says that his reason for kidnapping those close to Koyomi was so that he could kill Koyomi. However, Teori is perplexed at the situation. He knows that he is there to kill Koyomi, but why him? On paper it seems like Teori is the best person to oppose Koyomi, almost as if he were cast for the role. He can't help but feel that someone else has manipulated events so that it would turn out to be him fighting Koyomi. While this conversation is taking place, Yotsugi is shown searching the shrine for the hostages. Koyomi is angered by Teori's musings on the situation, but Teori points out that Koyomi's anger merely fits the role that he had been cast. The two of them are following their scripts. He tells Koyomi to find Meme, as he is the one who could bring balance outside of the casting or script. Koyomi replies that he has searched, and asks Teori if he knows where Meme is. Teori replies that he does not. Teori drops a final origami into the offertory box, and it fills up. Teori gets ready to fight Koyomi, stating that he's sick of being manipulated and used like a pawn. Teori then appears to be talking to someone other than Koyomi. It is revealed to be Yotsugi, who appears in front of Teori. Yotsugi uses her powers and kills Teori. Koyomi is shocked. Yotsugi reassures him that he had nothing to do with her decision. Even if there were a way to save everyone, she decided to do it because she is a monster, in her own words. She tells Koyomi to not end up like her. Karen, Tsukihi, and Suruga are found in the offertory box, and are taken back to Suruga's house. Taking an external view of things, Koyomi realizes that the point of this incident was to create a rift between him and Yotsugi. He was disgusted by her actions. Later, Koyomi visits Hitagi Senjougahara's house, who surprises him with chocolates. He remembers that today is Valentine's Day. Koyomi and Hitagi discuss the previous day's events and what they mean for his future. Hitagi surmises that things are fine for now, and that worrying too much about the future isn't all that great. He should just focus on living his life. After returning home, Koyomi enters his sister's room and finds Yotsugi sitting on Tsukihi's bed. Yotsugi explains that she was won by Tsukihi in the same claw game that Koyomi played the previous night, though Tsukihi needed only three attempts to get her. She goes on to say that both Yozuru and Izuko realized that the point of the previous day's incident was to create a rift in between Koyomi and Yotsugi, and as such, they should oppose whatever party that is causing these incidents. Therefore, until balance is achieved in the town, Yotsugi will be living in the Araragi household, which will serve to help Koyomi and Yotsugi reconcile.

Koyomi and Ougi find themselves trapped in a classroom, and the story shifts back to the point when Suruga introduces Ougi to Koyomi. Ougi approaches him with a mystery about a room not seen in the school's blueprints for them to investigate. When they enter the room, they find themselves trapped inside, leading them to their current situation. While talking about their predicament, the duo realize that the room is an oddity created by a traumatic memory from Koyomi's freshman years. Koyomi then tells Ougi that two years prior, the class president at his and Hitagi's class at the time, Sodachi Oikura, was looking for possible culprits of cheating on a math test, and would not allow any student to leave class until a culprit was found. Ougi surmises that they themselves won't be able to leave the room until the two-year-old mystery is solved.

Koyomi explains that during that debate two years earlier, tension among the students increased until Sodachi proposed a voting to elect the culprit, and while she voted for Koyomi out of her hatred on him, much to her surprise, she herself was chosen by most of the rest of the class. Since then, she stopped coming to school, just appearing to taking the tests while studying at home, while Koyomi stopped trusting people at all, leading to his reclusive life at school until he met Tsubasa, Hitagi and the other girls. Ougi, based on the information she obtained from Koyomi, figures that the true culprit was their math teacher at the time, Tetsujo Komichi, who arranged for her students to glimpse the contents of her test in advance in order to improve their grades and her reputation as a teacher as well, and Koyomi remembers that Tetsujo was one among those who voted Sodachi as the culprit. Now able to leave the room, Koyomi wonders if he was led there by Ougi by purpose, but she denies it. The next day, Koyomi gets himself relieved upon knowing that Tetsujo is on maternity leave and he won't see her again until he graduates. He also looks for the room where he and Ougi were trapped just to find that it is not there anymore, as a sign that the oddity disappeared for good. Just when Koyomi returns to his classroom, Tsubasa appears to stop him from entering, because Sodachi unexpectedly returned to attend classes during Tetsujo's leave, much to his surprise. 
"Sodachi Riddle, Part One"
"Sodachi Ridoru Sono Ichi" (そだちリドル 其ノ壹) 
"mathemagics" by Marina Inoue Yo Asami October 10, 2015
Koyomi arrives at his former middle school, accompanied by Ougi, looking for clues regarding Sodachi's hatred towards him. While investigating his former shoe locker, the pair find three letters, and the story then shifts back to the moment when Koyomi is informed by Tsubasa that Sodachi had returned to the school. In the occasion, Tsubasa reveals that Sodachi had made her all sort of questions regarding him and she answered her the best she could. While Tsubasa leaves to inform the homeroom teacher about Sodachi, Koyomi decides to face her directly. In the occasion, Sodachi continuously insults him, claiming that she not only despises him, but that she does so because he has a happy life and does not know the reason why. When Koyomi attempts to calm her down, she hurts him with a mechanic pencil, just when Hitagi enters the room. Fearing for the worse, Tsubasa attempts to hold Hitagi back to no avail but claims that she will not attack Sodachi for injuring her boyfriend. However, Sodachi starts insulting her as well, and after being slapped in the face, Hitagi knocks her down with a punch, before pretending to lose consciousness as well and leaving the situation for Koyomi to resolve. Upon confiding to Ougi about the situation, they conclude that the key to the mystery lies in the middle school where both Koyomi and Sodachi used to study, and because of that they decided to stop there to investigate. Back to the present, the pair find in the letters a map leading to an abandoned house. While exploring the house, Ougi points out that Sodachi must be aware that Tetsujo is the true culprit behind the incident in the classroom two years before, as she decided to return to school just when she left on maternity leave. Despite wary of Ougi's true intentions, Koyomi guides her to the house's attic, where he is about to tell the story of what happened there five years prior.

Koyomi tells Ougi that five years before, he was in trouble with his grades at school, specially in mathematics, when he finds three letters in his shoe locker and upon solving the mystery that lies on them, he is drawn to the ruins where he met a girl of his age who agreed to help him with his studies, upon agreeing at three conditions: that he would never ask, or try to figure out her name; that they would only study in the ruins's attic; and that they will only talk about mathematics. Agreeing with her demands, Koyomi studied with the girl for some time, until one day she disappeared without a trace, only leaving behind an empty envelope for him. Certain that the girl from that time could be no other than Sodachi, and by the signs of domestic violence she glimpsed in the house, Ougi realizes that by that time, the house was not in ruins, but was actually the house where Sodachi used to live, and she had actually lured Koyomi there by purpose, knowing that his parents are from the police, hoping that upon realizing that something was wrong with her own parents' behavior, he would tell them, but he did not realize that at the time, which was the reason for the empty envelope she left for him as a sign that he did not help her when she needed him most. In the next day, Koyomi returns to school, knowing that he must face Sodachi once more, but he can't shake the feeling that the reason for her hatred towards him runs deeper then that.

During December, after the events of Otorimonogatari, Koyomi is sitting in his room studying for entrance exams when Shinobu suddenly appears. Koyomi, who had received donuts from Hitagi earlier in the day, decides to treat Shinobu to some of them. While inspecting the donuts, Shinobu notices that they are not "Mr. Donut" brand and states that Koyomi's girlfriend likely poisoned them. After a short argument, Shinobu eats the first donut, stating that it was delicious and insists that she thank Hitagi directly. Koyomi suggests not to, as it would be awkward for Shinobu to introduce herself on such an odd note. Soon after, Koyomi attempts to grab a donut from the four remaining, but Shinobu recoils and states the other ones might be poisoned as well. Koyomi asserts that she's exploiting the situation in order to the eat the rest of the donuts, and they eventually come to a compromise, Shinobu will hide each donut around his room, and every one Koyomi doesn't find will be hers to eat. After a cut, the scene transitions to a conversation over the phone between Koyomi and Tsubasa, who is currently overseas scouting out locations for her trip around the world. Koyomi tells Tsubasa that during the game, he was able to find three of the four donuts, but was puzzled on where the last one could have been hidden. Tsubasa presents the idea that Shinobu hid one of the smaller donuts within a larger one, meaning Koyomi would have eaten the evidence of the remaining donut. Koyomi then asks why Shinobu would do such a thing, as it would go against her intentions of consuming the rest of the donuts. Tsubasa responds, saying that it was Shinobu overlooking her selfish motives and chance of personal gain in order to teach Koyomi, not about secrecy or negotiations, but love.

February. Late February. Araragi is seen fighting with Yozuru in order to become stronger without the use of his vampire powers as she does. Yozuru tells Araragi that he will die before he becomes able to learn her technique. Araragi then poses the question about Yozuru and Yotsugi seeing as how Yotsugi only calls Yozuru "Onee-san" but is unlike all the males she knows, whom she each calls "Onii-san" after their names. Yozuru then tells Araragi that she'll tell him about their relationship only if he lands a single blow against her in battle. Araragi accepts and goes home. Later, Araragi asks his sister Karen for advice. Karen points out how Araragi should have not accepted the fight at all seeing as how it will be impossible to even land a single blow. She also points out that the extremely hard difficulty only proves how Yozuru does not want to tell Araragi the truth, only indirectly rejecting to answer the question. Karen finishes by saying how she would try to not disgrace her opponent by losing the battle without letting the opponent know that she knows about not being answered at all. Thus Araragi prepares to lose gracefully by getting Shinobu to make him a gun using her vampire power of creation and in turn landing a single "blow" even if it is not a punch. The next day, Araragi goes to the mountain where Yozuru should be waiting for him but she never appears.
