THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
UWAAAAAAH OMGWTF?!
mann from the very beginning (absence of OP song) I was like "WTF? wasn't this planned for 2 cours?"...

I can't believe Naoki can suddenly change like that... (even though he had Kotoko in mind since a long time...)
and wow the story progression was kinda fast... wonder how it's gonna continue now that they're married... in the 'B part' :P

Kin-chan was totally awesome how he responded to all this...
and of course, a big WTF at Christine's taste. XDD

Yay, we have hit vol 10 of the manga, 13 more volumes to go... lol :)
Good episode! Poor Kin-chan ;_; But as we can see, he will be okay...

The English and accented Japanese is hilarious. :) "I choose my partner by myself dad, it's not your business!" Chris's Japanese is so painful ^_^

They are doing a reasonable job at compacting the manga, but I still miss Kotorin ^__^ Irie's mom is still awesome ^_^ She knows how to move things forward!

But I am curious to see how they end the series, what Tada-sensei's plan that she told her husband about before she died. One of the things I really like about this series is how it continues past the point where the main couple "get together" instead of just doing the "riding off into the sunset" sort of ending after they declare they like each other. Now it's time for the honeymoon~

I assume we'll get a new OP song next week ^_^

Between watching this and "Aishite Night" another anime based on a manga by Tada Kaoru, I am in happy shoujo land, lol

God , I was so surprised to see Naoki make a turn of 180 degrees xD He was always so negative that seeing him say "I love you" so easily and "I want to marry her" made me speechless ~

Especially in the end I thought the whole wedding thingy was her imagination for a bit xD Couldn't believe that they got together so fast . Such a fast episode ~

And for the first time I felt sad for Kin-chan and respect and that he was cool xD Though I seeing Chris falling for him was so unexpected though when she said she had someone I guessed it would be him xD That's how stories always go xD

And yeah those english/japanese always make me smile xD

And wow , now they are married . I thought the whole series would be for them to get together ~ Adn now I realise I'll watch their married life together xD Still unbelievable ~ I missed a regular shoujo so much =]

Welp, I kinda knew Chis had a thing for Kin-chan when she used his given name during the last episode (and I thought the mushmouthed Kansai-ben would be too big of a barrier, especially for a gaijin that still uses "death" as a copula).

Still, towards the end, I was waiting for Kotoko to screw up the wedding in some way, like she did her graduation, especially since the marriage was so rushed even by Japanesian standards.

Looks like we'll have trouble in paradise, especially after Naoki tells Kotoko in the previews that her usual maunderings have "ruined the mood. "

.... WTF?!
I really enjoyed the episode but soon after I finished it I thought... WTF?! It was so fast! They didn't even start to go out with each other. o.o
... I think I love Naoki now. XD

Yay! Loved thi ep! It was awful fast though... but so cute!
Tis my 2nd time watching a raw episode.. but it was surprisingly easy to understand XD
I love how Chris told Kin-chan she wanted to marry him XD Sooo funny XD So Kin-chan is "sekushii" lol.
It did seem like Irie's feelings completely changed but I guess he felt he had to show his feelings at last since he risked losing Kotoko. Twas rushed... but so damn cute!
I am really positive about the next episode "I am Kotoko Irie" XD Sounds promising :P

This episode was a breakthrough for Irie-kun for he was able to be honest (finally) with Kotoko and everyone else about his love for Kotoko. It was just like the second to last episode of 'It started with a kiss' the Taiwanese version of Itazura Na Kiss which are both based on the manga by Kaoru Tada. It just shows that it pays to be persistent...

I believe after this episode, everybody is happy that "at last Naoki shows his honesty of true love to Kotoko" and "Kotoko received true love from Naoki"....... Oh.. & wow.... it so dramtically and it happened sooo fast.......

Well, after their marriage, I'm sure your able to guess what will be going on? ... I foresee it will not be as interesting as "pre-marriage" story.

Yeah, this anime is combine part 1 & 2 ... I have feeling that I'm start lossing interest on coming episodes..

The only thing is that since this episode seemed so rushed does that mean that the series was canceled? I did not watch after the credits to see the preview for the next episode but at times when the storyline makes such an abrupt sort of "be all end all" episode that is because they've been canceled and are trying to give the viewers closure. I don't know I guess I will look for a preview but I don't know how they could make it as interesting as it has been.

Well, that episode made me extremely happy. I'm amazed they moved it that quickly and still made it seem fine. Can't wait for when they finally graduate and the hospital episodes begin.

It was a satisfying episode, but man did it move too fast almost. We went from him admitting he loved her to a marriage in no time. I thought we were gonna lag about a few episodes at least of people trying to break up their engagement first. Ah well, on to the next arc!

Wow it moved SO fast. In the same episode he proposed AND they got married. I'm curious to see how the show progresses but this really was one of the cutest episodes i've ever seen...... ever. Defenitely the best marriage sequence ever.

that was lightning speed fast. wow. i fear for their future. that chick falling for kin-chan or whatever his name is was rather obvious...but not expected.

this first half was rather fun and exciting i hope the second half is just as exciting. i suppose irie didnt just "settle" for her since he can get any chick he wants, but i think there are gonna be lots and lots of wemen troubles. jeleausy is a beautiful thing after all hehe

As I have mentioned before, this series plays on time so incredibly much. These 14 episodes cover a span of 3 1/2 years at least. So while it seems "soon" to us, it has really been a while.

Basically, from a more manga depth perspective, it wasn't until Naoki heard that she was going to marry another that he realized he loved her. It doesn't mean he hasn't all along ;)

And was is jut me, or was the first kiss very very awkward?! they can draw kissing scenes WAAYYY better than that.

*cough*

Anyway, I have to say the between the pre-marriage and post marriage parts, I enjoy the post marriage storylines. A story doesn't have to get boring just because the guy gets the girl. All worries and concerns are addressed in post marriage life (like not having time to date etc).

Usually everyone is begging for more ;)

Heh, it's kind of funny. All the characters were saying "Whoafast" and whatnot, then I pop up here to see what the fans had to say... and that was "Whoafast." Someday soon, you people are going to tear down the walls between the real world and the anime one. :|

I'm not overly shocked at the "Whoafast"ness of it all, myself. I mean, I was when the old lady suddenly said "Two weeks!", but it's just so... her, setting up the wedding date on her own and making it ASAP, that I was able to adjust to it. Completely in-character of her to do so. If they must rush pieces, this is totally the way they need to do it.

I don't think the storyline is going that fast really. If anything they may have rushed the last few episodes, not just this one since this is how it happens in the manga.

Looking at the Taiwanese drama, the first season of ISWAK ended at this point and the second season storyline began with the honeymoon and the anime's going at the same speed in that sense.

The post-marriage storyline is interesting because you see so much more of what Naoki is feeling/thinking, and their interaction really is just as cute/sweet.

Fantastic episode!

Had me laughing and cheering from start to finish. I'm in eternal shoujo bliss at the moment. Excuse while I enjoy it...

Ahhhhh~~~ Good job, Naoki. Kotoko, may you make the rest of his life as interesting as hell x)

After marriage comes the sex. If you think Kotoko freaks out over a kiss, imagine when they finally do it.... will they survive?

This was such an amazing episode! It had every thing you'd want in a love story, it even had a famous kiss in the rain seen!!!!! I liked the first half better than the second half because after about 10 minutes everything was just rushed. I'm curious to find out how the story will turn out now. This was my favourite episode by far!

This episode kept me fangirl screaming and laughing the whole time. Good job. Good job.

Though I really can't ignore the fact that it's impossible to plan a wedding in two weeks, this is still one episode of bliss I'll remember for this series. Naoki x Kotoko forever!

I love this episode. My score has gone from an 8/10 to 9/10.

It was a bit fast, but I kind of saw this coming since I watched the TW drama, and from what I can remember, pretty much the same thing happened.

This reminds me I need to finish They Kiss Again.

I love how people are now saying the Kinnosuke and Chris thing was so obvious but when I posed it back when she was first introduced people shot down the idea or ignored it completely lol.

Anyway, happy to see where the show is going. It's really beginning to feel like Suzuka's manga if you know what I mean. I haven't read Itazura na Kiss's manga yet but I really hope they show some real romance.

Well, taking into account Romance Village's kiss, it's not really that quickly, is it? He had feelings for her by that point, clearly, and right before this episode, he had just heard about Kinnosuke's proposal. The risk of losing her makes his sudden actions... obvious, yes? :|

i just loved this episode but i'm sort of glad they got married fast because it would have been messed up if he said oh i change my mind but then again i didn't expect them to get married for at least 3-5 episodes you know but none the less i loved it. can't wait for episode 15 the honeymoon hopefully it's good

Definitely the best episode till now. Lol, Kotoko and the wedding kiss = win. I finally start to like Irie, as he isn't that much of an baka anymore. Christine was also very funny with things as ''You've got bad taste'' ... xD Looking forward to the next episodes ^.^

Ok, not really, but it was indeed the best of the series thus far. I LMAOed when Chris said that Kotoko had bad taste in men, and that she like Kinnosuke.

I have one major thing to say:

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

As a big shoujo lover, I have this big smile on my face right now by seeing that wedding. It was really so damn cute, and it's not something that you see everyday.

However

lol, Kotoko really has bad taste in men, Chris, you're completely right. And Kin-chan was right too, he's bullied her for a long time, and then suddenly: Let's get married! It wasn't quite fair, it was... just crazy. And marrying at what, 19? Well, wow.

However

Damn, that was cute. Now let there be marriage insanity!

Shocku!
It did feel sort of rushed, but it was expected in a way. Oba-Sama has been waiting for Naoki to confess for a long time, so it's no wonder that she rushed them to the altar so that he doesn't change his mind.
I'm just surprised they went along with it. xD
I saw the Chris/Kinnosuke coming a while ago though.

Although they skipped to marriage really fast, I didn't hate it and throughout the whole thing I was waiting fro Irie to turn into the mean person he was before. I love that they've done this and I can't wait to see what will happen next... I should have read the manga first...
