Nekomonogatari Shiro is a final story of Hanekawa's evolvement. Interestingly, Nekomonogatari Shiro succeeds as a story because of the absence of Araragi. This allows the other characters a chance to interact without his constant presence.
After all, this is Hanekawa’s story—and serves as the conclusion to her character arc as she finally learns to accept herself and embrace her own faults instead of shunning them to keep remain white/unhuman. All in all, it serves as a great character piece for both of them.
1. Story and Development
Perfect conclusion of Hanekawa's development.
2. Bitter Sweet Romance
The ending is good for you who need some Monogatari's romance tasteness.
SHAFT and Monogatari is a combination to arrange viewers mood to be same as their expected. How cinematography and music doing it all was perfect
