The episode was pretty good.
My favorite part was when scam was turned into a boxing bag :)

Not much happened this episode I felt, but Soldier got screentime so that's awesome.

I agree with this show just being problem solving, but hey: they did have a lot of problems back then :P

Scam done lost his mind over a piece of nasty used ass!!! I'm glad Soldier beat the shit out him. They all should have jumped in and whooped Scam's ass until the sun came up.

Marry me, Mario!!!

Pretty good episode. Most of the time i was thinking; "Would it be acceptable had he not borrowed and stolen money?"

I agree everything is broken down into short two episode arcs. If they had tried to integrate them so they overlapped it might feel less repetitive. However i am not going to let that affect me that much.

The worst part about it is how the narrator calls him a man for doing so.

Scam has been scammed, how ironic :o (a precursor to Nigerian scam maybe)

Next up: heartbroken Scam finds out that even though the prostitute left him he still has his buttbuddies!

I can't stop laughing at the fact that Scam wants to help the prostitute so much but everybody including her tells him not to .
GO Solider ! Beat the crack out of him till he comes to his senses !

Hetai ftw! Gief a Hetai arc after Baremoto/Scam tbh. Another good episode imo. But these new episodes were not as good as when An-chan was still alive :(

Soldier is finally living up to the epicness I had expected from his character. He beat the crap out of Scab and it was the most deserving beating of the series yet.

You've gotta be the most pathetic piece of shit, to steal from your own family just to sleep with some random whore. I've lost all respect for scam.

this is kinda messed up but once you are blind and have been in this type of situation then youll understand, but this was some tough love from friends beating the hell out of each other,

Wow, the draaaamaaaaa. Highly unrealistic and overly mushy (that's the side I really don't like in this series), but still Soldier's beating scene was nice at the end.

excellent episode. expect some character development on Scam.

does anybody watched Samurai Champloo ? there was an exact episode like this, only tho the ending may be different..


anyway i'd be glad if Scam would run away with that girl...

Yeah I noticed the Samurai Champloo similarities as well XD

Ok so I know Baremoto is being a bit silly but if he is genuinely in love does that make it a little more defensible? I'm undecided on that right now.

Also it was a cool scene and everything but I don't really see what Soldier hoped to achieve by beating Scam up, did he really think it'd change his mind?

Whenever an antagonist doesn't get their way and they beat on one of the boys we all look at it and shake our heads but it seems like mixed messages to me when Soldier gets unnecessarily violent and emotionally cruel (telling Baremoto he slept with the woman he loves O_O) here and we're supposed to think it's really cool and manly.

Fantastic episode... my favorite of this second half so far. Great devolepment from a lot of characters and some serious issues arising within the group. Loved how they dealt with the episode.

Baremoto is a HUGE PRICK..Not only is he spending his family's money just to f**k a prostitute but he makes her the crown on his head.She is above everything now..Who cares if my friends help me and save me when i'm in trouble??No one..Because i have my woman (who happens to be many mens' woman) and that's all that matters..For the love of God, Baremoto..

Then, Soldier beat the hell out of him.I enjoyed it.I won't lie.But, I highly doubt that it worked.Most likely he got more stubborn and who knows what he 'll do..I don't think that that woman truly meant what she promised.She probably said that to get rid of him.

As we 're drawing closer to the end i think the friends will start getting away from each other.Joe got his sister and Baremoto his woman.That friendship slowly fades away.

Out of all the arcs, this one has quickly become my favorite. Scam's always been interested in the ladies and his studies, but we see one of his desires get the better of him, and of all things, a prostitute. And then Soldier literally tries to beat common sense into him.

I felt really bad for Turtle. He's such a sweet little guy, looking out for Joe and Scam and all, and feeling all happy to spend some time with Scam's family and then for Scam to turn around and yell at him like that when Turtle was just trying to share his brothers' concerns... :(

I still wanna see an arc with Soldier, though. Cabbage's episode was rather boring to me. Slightly amusing at the end and all, but really boring and almost unneeded - heck, it could have been a "b plot" to another episode with the way it slowly dragged out, I think. So this little arc is a nice change of pace...

Baremoto is a moron. Fucking pissed me off so much with what he said to Suppon. Especially about him not having a woman or a family. I don't care how blinded by love you are, NOT an excuse to be an asshole to someone you went together through hell with. You can beat him up some more, Heitai.

Why the hell didn't anyone else react like Heitai?
Stealing money from his mom who worked hard for him to singlehandedly bring home enough food for four people while lying and leeching off of his best friends.

He doesn't even seem to feel even slightly guilty for basically fucking everyone who cares for him over because of "love". Love my ass! He only got obsessed with her because it was the first time he felt the warmth of a woman and thought that they shared some kind of bullshit bond because of it. What makes him think that he has the right to love anyone when he has no sense of responsibility whatsoever?

This show has sort of been getting on my nerves for a while now, but at least there's only a few episodes left and I really look forward to seeing Baremoto screwed over by the hooker.

Soldier is such a boss. 3rd most badass character before Sakuragi and Mario.

Even though that hoe was pretty hot, Scam should have followed the bro code. Bros before hoes.

As soon as his mom said he wasn't at home, I thought "Aw, noooooooo.... NO.. STUPID!!" because I knew instantly he spent it on some woman. :(
My heart aches for Suppon. Poor guy. :(

I hate the whole "My husband/father is in debt and cannot pay it back. I have to become a prostitute to pay back his debt." Seriously, the debt is his own fault. His family shouldn't be dragged into it.

Baremoto doesn't even feel guilty. That pisses me off even more.

Holy crap I take it back what I said about Scam redeeming himself.

I hate him again, he's the biggest piece of shit around.

Using Turtle like that. I'm so pissed.


and lol cue the prostitute with the typical sad sob story.
WAAAAAAH WAAAAAAAAAAAH WAAAAAAAAAH
No one cares, you fodder whore, we don't even know you.

Soldier beating the crap out of him was so good.

Soldier is the best character right now, Y/Y?

Wow Baremoto, you just lost all the respect I got for you back when you were desperate to help out Mario. Can't believe he was borrowing money from his friends saying that he needed it for reference books. And then even went to the point of thinking that he would rather lose his friends and family than losing Eri. Yup, he definitely went blind from love. What a kid. Completely selfish. Glad Heitai beat him up good, still not enough to knock some sense into Baremoto though. Mario and Suppon were too nice. And uh oh, what's happening with Suppon getting dizzy? After effects of atomic radiation? Or am I thinking too much? Though I had always been wondering if it has effected or not, being that close of the bombing...

I couldn't even defend Uncovered's irrationally stupid behavior. This episode made me drop a score.

Lol at some of the comments...so guy fell for a prostitute, so what? whores are people too, just in worse circumstances. Eri's motivation was pretty heroic and so I cannot for the life of me understand comments like 'piece of nasty used ass'. Really? It was fucked up how he lied to and belittled Turtle, yes, and for that he deserved a beating, but damn...
