Relationships could be an example of something valuable and irreplaceable. Kaiki arrived at the cafe, and upon seeing Senjougahara with a pair of Groucho glasses, he felt a sense of defeat. Feeling indignant, he bought and wore a hawaiian shirt and sunglasses to wear during his rendezvous with Senjougahara. After Senjougahara resulted laugh caused her to spit out her drink upon seeing him, he silently proclaimed his victory before they started conversing.

During his interactions and investigations, Kaiki is visited by Yotsugi Ononoki on behalf of Izuko Gaen to keep out of the case concerning the snake-god Nadeko. 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.Kamiya Hiroshi & Saito Chiwa about the difficulties of Bakemonogatari, their roles and more
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.
