Best episode so far.

Satou gets some character development, the "conspiracy" comes back into play, we get a deeper look at Satou's past experience with Hitomi, the project is started, and we are treated to a hilarious scene (obviously the dream analysis).

And the best part was how Misaki was so shocked. As if the imagery he gave her could get any other result. xD

It was interesting that he at once revealed his hikikomori self to senpai. Maybe because she's as..uh, troubled as he is? I hope to see more about that relationship.

I wonder if its because he hesitated that she left in that manner. Anyways, this show is like, rated an 11 so far, if that were possible on the ratings = )

Best episode so far. First half of episode was quite depressing, but the second one was funny again. I am glad he wrote that scenario - I want to see their game so much :)

I can't stand Misaki. She's even worse than she was in the manga.

QFT!!! I don't like her either! I've never read the manga, but I'm definitely not liking what I'm seeing in this anime.

i agree, and my face was actually the same as them when i saw purin like that, lol

though im not a hikimori (yet), i think this anime might be really helpful in aviding that fate.

I really liked the first part with senpai. I hope we see more of her soon. I like her a lot more than Masaki :3
I was surprised when she was just reading to him with her notebook. Funny stuff with the dream analysis lol (although I'm not sure if I've got it right or not XD). They're continuing with the game, awesome. Lol @ broken figure at the end haha XD

That first seminar was interesting, it looks like Misaki doesn't really know what she's doing. It was hilarious when she looked up the meaning of the dream and went completely red.

Those little blue grinch things crack me up every time I see them too.

About the Freud dream analysis...can someone tell me what the "serpent, sea, apple, sword, handgun" dream is supposed to mean? Google didn't give me any results that satisfactorily explain why Misaki's face went red...

The serpent, sword, and gun were all metaphors for a penis. The stabbing part with the sword was the dick going into a vagina. The gun part was the penis having an orgasm.
Satisfied? ;)

I had a feeling this show would hit home with me but it really wasn't until this episode that I felt it. Not gonna blog but there are obviously similarities here as I'm sure there are with a lot of people who watch this. I also thought it was really funny that Misaki is using conventional definitions to for both describing Satou and structuring his "rehabilitation". Satou's senpai re-appearing helps with a lot of the development and I felt it was the most important part.

So he had a relation with his sempai or was it just a phantasm? As I thought, his sempai is the reason he accepted the contract. And as I thought, Misaki is something like a college student making her thesis or something like this. Her trying to explain her theory to Satou was funny xD

The scene at the end was hilarious!

That psychoanalysis part was indeed funny but i got disgusted when Sato started sexually harassing Misaki like that to much extent...

Wow, really interesting character this Hitomi Kashiwa

I love the complexity surrounding Satou xD

I get a kind of mysterious feel to the series every once and a while and its sort of like reading a novel. Well.. at least for the first 5 minutes that's what i thought... lol

Satou's teasing was really funny though xD that was obvious


Rofl that ending!

Game start.
First, you cooperate with your parents and automatically begin the process of character customization.
After receiving blessings from your father, mother and many others in a touching opening cutscene, you can finally begin controlling your MC.
Even though the controls take a while to get used to, you eventually learn them, and you are thrown into a hub of social competition – school.
The realm where this game takes place in – Earth.
We were thrown in a corner of this gigantic map, and faced a massive sandbox game. We saw the slogan and were instantly hooked, but we quickly noticed – We were tricked.

My jaw slightly dropped when he broke Pururin. I feel bad for Yamazaki.

That was really nice of him to decide to continue with the game production, I honestly wasn't expecting him to pull through like that, partly since it doesn't benefit him. Well, he is trying to change.
I was expecting more from the counseling, but it's a start.
I was also disappointed having the scene with his upper-classman be so short. They didn't talk much. . but at least it gave Satou something to think about.
To be honest, I admire Yamazaki's character, as I realized in the scene when he was talking with his parents. He knows what he's doing and what he believes in, which is why he is pretty convincing to a character like Satou.

EDIT: I had no idea what was so funny about the dream, so I went back and re-watched it while considering why Misaki was so flustered. . . and then I got it.

Why does this always tend to happen..? I feel like I'm a little more fond of Hitomi-senpai than Misaki.
Anyway, the scene about Freud's dream analysis was glorious. Misaki was cute that time.
The last part was so good... until poor Pururin-chan was squashed.
Holy shit I burst out laughing like crazy.. kekeke !!

I kind of had this idea in my head like, oh what does Misaki have up her sleeve? I was expecting something truly unique as her means of ‘counseling’ Satou. I was kind of surprised when I realized that what she meant by ‘counseling,’ was just that. She took out a notebook and started reading to him, and discussing dream analysis. I mean, she seemed like such an enigma of an individual that I was anticipating a quirkier kind of counseling. But it’s still really great, because I can see that she and Satou have really great chemistry together, and it’s going to be funny to see them together—like with the dream analysis. That was too great; her reaction to him was the best.

She might have further plans yet that are "quirkier". And anyway, I do think they have good chemistry as well. It took me some time to begin appreciating Misaki, I wasn't sure if I liked how I felt like she behaved a bit like a know-it-all around Satou, but... I guess with them in their respective situations she gets to be that way, it might even be helpful. I'm liking her more with every episode, anyway.

I think Misaki was just starting out small and simple. As the conseling goes by she might try different ideas and maybe even do physical counseling. I too really wanted to know why Misaki turned red.

Sato destroys Purin-chan xD

Note to self, never leave anime figures on the ground or even out the box.

Even though she's a conspiracy nut with a meds problem, I'd still take Hitomi up on that offer.

This episode is a great progress from the previous few. mentions of Jung's collective unconscious...and I was ready for that. I keep having a feeling Misaki has an ulterior motive. Can't shake that creepiness of her out of my head. Same applies to the senpai Hitomi's smirk when she looked back at Satou. She technically inspired him to get out of his hikikomori lifestyle - but I have a feeling things would go unexpected.

AHAHA AHHAHAHAHA HAHAHAhahahaha ahahahaha. The Freud scene was GOLD. I haven't laughed so hard at an anime scene in ages - that's saying a lot considering how hilarious this anime has been hitherto. Freud essentially taught all dreams were related to sex in one way or another; Satou using that knowledge to his advantage was bloody genius.

The rest of the episode actually caught me with some feels and unsurprising psychological elements.

I have an idea what his made-up dream might have meant xD
And.. It's even funnier because they didn't say it explicitly :)
And that last scene. I.. I.. Almost cried. A childhood trauma.

Huh? It's a well known cliche that when you talk about Freud you talk about penises.
