Call it a bias.
Setting aside her verbal abuse—which is really nothing more than her trying to be funny—what does she do for Araragi? She makes him a little uncomfortable. But that’s as much him as it is her. He’s an awkward guy.
And she’s awkward, too, hence the attempts to be funny.
So—what does she do for Araragi?
Where the typical disgusting moe anime heroine might promise a lifetime of bento, Senjougahara gives Araragi something much more meaningful. She brings him to her happy place and shows him the Treasure in her Heart.
She says it’s the only thing she has left that she hasn’t given Araragi.
That’s pretty fucking intense.
A night sky flooded with stars, unmarred by light pollution, a little bit of serene beauty hiding in plain sight. That beauty is Senjougahara’s treasure, and it’s the treasure she passes along to Araragi. That beauty is Senjougahara’s beauty—as she makes the most heartfelt gesture possible, she ascends and becomes those stars.
Ultimately, Senjougahara’s beauty is that she’s sappy as fuck.
And I like sappy.
