Actually, if I'm not mistaken, all the names are play on words. Or they rhyme with something else, or sound similar. Like Surugu Kanbaru. She had the monkey paw, and Surugu sounds a lot like Saru, which is the Japanese name for monkey. So if you remember their animal and you know the Japanese word for that animal you can remember their name. I don't know if this is the case for all characters though. Bakemonogatari is one of my personal favorite animes right now as well. I admit, I have Senjougahara fascination!
Ah yeah that series is like a party of puns. I love it. I've personally just memorized the names as they come and I have managed that. Puns or not, they're really long! Senjougahara Hitagi, Bakemonogatari, Kiss-shot Acerola-Orion Heartunderblade.... Senjougahara fascination, I have that!!
Yes, it is Kiss-shot indeed! I'm just patiently waiting for Kizumonogatari right now. Or not that patiently, I can't wait!! Have you seen the new trailer? It's super creepy, jesus......... I love it. I read the light novel on baka-tsuki.
