Nitori is a lot more tolerable when he's doing things rather than sitting about agonizing.

Anna is interesting. I've liked her since she took the photo of him in episode one with her cell phone. She's offbeat (well, I guess that applies to everyone in this series), and she has a great attitude. But her friends have opinions of her that don't match her own, which is kind of fun. I don't really care what she does (since none of the males have really stood out) but I hope she gets more screen time.

Having said that, I wonder what long-term effect she'll end up having on Nitori. Part of what made him a miserable wretch earlier on was that he seemed to be stuck in an echo chamber with Mako, Saori and Takatsuki. I think they echoed and reinforced his worst aspects, skewing his impression of himself and the world. Nobody benefitted.

I think this was the most enjoyable episode of the season.

I don't know whether I should be happy about this current development or not.... In those type of shows, it's very likely that Anna will be used as a convenient tool for the author to rid off once she fulfills her purpose. I don't a give a f**k about Nitori but I'd hate it if Anna becomes miserable because of this dork and in such scenario, I'm afraid that I have to raid the author's house and set it in flame to vent my anger so I really really hope that Anna will be happy, at least until the end of the anime and then I might/might not give a shit about the manga if it were to take the route that I fear of. I will even go as far as giving GDO 300 yen if GDO can grant my modest wish....



If he's not with us, he's AGAINST us!!!

Yeaaah, this is part I'm waiting for.

Nitorin and Anna is the pairing I really like in the manga because of their pretty cute unusual relationship and there will be more though why is this anime just 11 episodes. :(

...and I don't like how Takatsuki being a dumped bitch (though she isn't really dumped but it looks like she MAD!) reveal it to Saori so someone also have to feel her pain. Gotta love Saori's bluntness and just expresses how she feels unlike that hypocrite Takatsuki.

I did not expect this at all. Nitorin's character is kind of strange to me. I'm interested to see where this goes.

as usual, a very good episode of Hourou, I did like the part when Nitiori just blurts out "I love you" and Anna goes "so?" they made it in a way that wasn't cheesy and actually entertaining, but like the rest of you, it doesn't look like they will last and I think when something in their relationship does happen we will see a different side to Nitoori, it is amazing how the protagonist is highly feminine and incredibly (sorry but im addicted to hyperbole) admirable, cant wait for ep 8 I wonder who's going to change in that one

I didn't like this anime for the first 5 eps but I'm beginning to like it now, I never would've expected Nitori and Anna to start a relationship (even though I was hoping for it deep down). I hope that they stay together even though I doubt they will


completely agree with every thing you have just said !

lolwut is this. It's not surprising for Nitori to have feelings for Anna since this was hinted in previous episodes. But I didn't think he would actually confess lol.

And we actually got to see Takatsuki's selfish side in this episode.
Breaking the terrible news to Chiba just so she could lessen a little of the hate Chiba has for her. I guess if someone like Chiba was that cold towards me, I can't stand it either.

Putting the fact that you can tell they increased the pace a lot i actually loved the episode. I'm always a fan of any actual couple forming, and while it might have been somewhat sudden there was always that weird relationship between the two of them.

They look a little weird together, but i think it is a cute couple. While i was rooting for Chiba before i am not sure if i am going to switch fractions yet. Both seem like underdogs at the moment though.

I hate how Nitori was freaking out over 3 or 5 pimples...geez...Japanese people must've never seen pimples on eachother's faces or they are just acting really immature...as for Anna and Nitori being together..that made me really mad since I was really rooting for TakatsukixNitori. D;


Takatsuki is soo cool T___T, like, she would be my ideal man if she were a man. D; <333 she's so cool

I think that Nitori and Anna's relationship isn't going to really last a long time...I mean she seems to be "okay" or "intrigued" with him dressing as a guy...but I don't know any girl who would actually fall in love with a guy who dresses as a girl. For Takatsuki, it's different because she thinks of herself as a boy..but yeah...I just have this hunch that their relationship isn't going to last for very long..

anyways, I can't wait to see what happens in the next episode! :D

I don't like Takatsuki one bit.
I hate the premise that if you get a girl friend, you can't have any friends that are girls. Of course it's just a lie and Takatsuki is the one that wants to run away from Nitori. I also hate her reasoning for becoming friends with Saori, just because she is lonely.

Well that confession of love came out of blue, but it's about time there was at least one true couple, at least till someone ruins it...

They're 13 year olds, it's called puberty. Stressing over acne is very normal at that age.

Great ep was unexpected.

Nitori as boyfriend seems weird to me. I mean why is he still crossdressing even he has

girlfriend? O.o

But yeah, he manned up and confessed unlike me when I was that age.

Although my main reason was to focus on my studies until now but not that I regret. :D

Hope things will be much more interesting from now on.

Agreed. I actually love all the characters in the show, because regardless of whether or not they have irritating traits, they've all got personality.

Shuuichi and Anna should be an interesting pair to watch.

I really wish there was going to be more than 11 episodes... WHY?!?! Why not make it a multiple season thing?!?!

After the whole play mess, I feel like the story's finally picking up. I really like Anna as a character, but I can't help but feel empathetic toward Saori, no matter how twisted she may be. She seems like a simple girl left with an unfortunate twist of fate.

Anyone else think Chiba looked really pretty as she was lying on the couch?
I completely agree. She looked truly nice; her tousled hair added a contrasting effect to her usually-demure aspect.

This episode really showed what Hourou Musuko is worth of. The reality we have experienced at this age, it’s almost palpable, it’s not your perfect story in which nobody suffers the changes at puberty; something as simple as acne, or things as personal as having your period… I really love how such issues are portrayed.

Anna x Nitori couple is really cute~ I knew they would end up going up or at least have known mutual feelings, though it surprised me that it was Nitori who took the first step, confessing to Anna and then asking her out. It’s refreshing to see someone in a real relationship, not the all-too-used “We’re not dating but she’s mine” or something we see in harems and most series. Anna-chan is my favorite~♥

… Saori and Takatsuki are affected and distressed by Nitori’s decision to be on a relationship, aren’t they? Takatsuki’s showing her selfish side and thoughtlessly ignores and it’s colder to him. And Saori it’s taking her depression to the extreme, with the idea of dropping school and all… Seems exaggerated, but suitable; at this age nowadays, most adolescents consider the idea more-than-often, we have to accept it.

Doesn’t seem like reconciliation might occur any time soon for these two, even if looking for solace in the love-struck, —not really— rejected each other. They’re getting along just a tad better, at least.

Why are there only 4 episodes left? Oh, why? ;__;
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

That's precisely why I like their relationship. I actually think it'd be neat if the anime stuck with it, devoting the last half of the season to them getting closer and casting away those other potential love interests. It would be like a mellow 'life goes on" thing, instead of the obnoxious never-ending love triangles most anime seem to feature.

Wh-what? Nitori likes Anna now? I'm surprised, considering it seems like he's liked Takatsuki for awhile now. But congrats to him, he sure has courage to confess to Anna, and I love how Anna's just like, "so?" They're a cute couple, and I love how different Anna's taste in "cute" things is, reminds me of Mao from Taiyou no Ie.

Hmm and Chiba really is a weird character. She says whatever she wants, like how she hates Takatsuki, and says she wants to quit school, she's the bully. She even knows that she's antisocial. I'm identifying with her more and more, though her attitude is more harsh. Her mother is also very lenient, just letting her stay home like that. Actually, all the parents in this anime is really nice...kind of hard to believe that none of them seem too strict. Anyways, props to Takatsuki for trying to be friends with Chiba, she's trying hard and hopefully she can get through her.

ive waited for a while because i was giving chiba the benefit of the doubt, but now its gone too far. she has some serious problems. at this young an age? she gets this melancholic when things dont go her way? quitting school, hating people this much? give me a break. this is a terribly disturbed character that grows up to be a supreme problem

Couldn't agree more.
They make an adorable couple!

Even though the unspoken rules of anime forbid this, I hope Nitori and Anna stay together.

Episode enjoyable!
A little too fast approaching Nitori and Anna, but the choice to upset the tables I like it, I hope hard to give a nice twist at the end.
Narration sweet and deep dialogues.
Drawings, animations and scenery so beautiful that it is worth watching the series just for the designs.
Of course, the soundtrack is beautiful and deserves.
