The guys are nervous after Azuki's call. lol @ the second call, but that makes the situation worse. Saikou is mad at the girls not trusting them, and Shuujin is feeling guilty about him being the cause. I believe it's the couple's first fight, isn't it?

Shuujin trying to solve the problem, but it's hard because female mangaka has feeling for him. Even Miyoshi heard about the argument that the couple did for their friends. It would be hard to solve because both are stubborn and Miyoshi is feeling guilty, too.

Without the report from Azuki, who read it as usual, the pair are nervous. What?! top 1?! Saikou is too happy that he's reporting Azuki about it. Female mangaka is 2nd and is happy.

Female mangaka, by editors' suggest, asks for working with the assistant guy again, but he's being proud and hurt her.

While Shuujin try to explain the misunderstanding to Miyoshi, female mangaka getting in the way, but both Shuujin and she explained the misunderstanding. Miyoshi allowed her to talk to Shuujin, and she also made friend with her. Shuujin also proposed to Miyoshi.

Saikou is being nervous and got confused by Azuki's mail because the misunderstanding has been solved. lol @ Shuujin with 3 girls!

Solving female mangaka's problem next ep.? And about Fukuda?

Glad to see the misunderstanding has been cleared. Funny ending for this episode.

Aoki-san has really changed since we first saw her. Didn't like her at first because her of cold stuckup attitude. Now, she's a likeable character thanks to Shuujin.

This episode reminded me how much I hate the relationships in it. I think the series would be so much better if the were all single and M&T (and the series itself) just focused on anime.

Well it was a funny episode. Nakai is definitely a douche. Anything he gets is too good for him. And damn, Aoki sure grows on you. But damn, from the previews, I think I know who's going to be her prince charming... ^^

And what's with the kids proposing left and right lol. These guys are crazy!

This, now granted i obviously knew Takagi would make up Miyoshi and they would end up together (didn't expect the proposal though) but i wouldn't have minded him going with Aoki either since she did a 180 after knowing Takagi better; leaving Iwase as the only intolerable one out of the three. Well even though the scenario resolved nicely and rather quickly Azuki still bothered me on how controlling she is, Mashiro said it best if he gave in she would own him in the future (seeing how he was about to fold in the end, she still might). Nakai is a total loser, well i don't see him going anywhere with that assistant so logic says it will all come down on him sooner or later, hopefully its sooner rather than later because i never really liked his character from the get go.

I'm glad Nakai got slapped like that; I doubt he'll learn anything, though...
I agree that Aoki is much more likeable than before...

Great, Takagi and Miyoshi resolved their problem, and the manga got a 1st place...:)

did anyone else feel like this 'arc' actually undermined the relationships in the anime?

It was good when the subtle romance constructed the foundation of the plot, and even bringing out some of the flaws in the relationship and developing drama could have been good ways to strengthen the anime, but I feel like everything that just transpired really weakened the romance aspect of the anime.

I was fine with Mashiro 'pure, innocent, idealist, and naive little romance, I really liked it actually, along with their promise and drive. It worked, for what it's worth. But Takagi's proposal was just... weak. Sure, it was sweet and surprising, but when you think about it (and maybe i'm taking this too seriously) they're just little kids still, they don't spend that much time together, and to decide to get married after serialization (which is pretty much bound to happen soon, given their current rating) just seems like a cheap trick to me.

Don't get me wrong, I don't hate it that much, and I can still see a lot of potential (especially regarding the manga, I mean, it's great that they paced 1st, but it was with a kiddy gag manga, so I expect something major changes to happen again) but they went from some places that had some opportunities for redemption, and ended up with them all laughing and sipping tea at a family restaurant, with the cute and confuddled Mashiro on the phone... come onnn...

and "oh, 'what are the chances of meeting again at the zoo? this isn't a manga!" Ha.Ha. Breaking the fourth wall has its moments, but I was expecting something more, not that cheap, overused joke.

On a positive note, I'm really starting to love Aoki. Her character is definitely developing. That's one thing the mangakas have always been good with. And Nakai has gone from a somewhat likable and pitiable character to a real ass. I guess that's another good thing with this arc, it elaborated on some of the secondary characters and really added depth and dimension to them. I mean, we all know some people like Nakai (and Aoki) IRL, even though they are fictional characters.

anyway, I'm glad to be out of this arc at least. I really honestly wanted to love the romance in this, and I really did for the most part, but Takagi and Miyoshi's relationship always seemed pretty shoddy to me. I like both of the characters, but I just can't take their relationship seriously (maybe because I've seen it a million times in High School... well, their example is a little better at least). I feel like this arc tried to strengthen and bring insight into their relationship, but in the end, it just feels more flimsy and uncertain, and pretty much undercuts their feelings, and effectively carries that sentiment over to Misaki and Azuki's previously pure, sheltered, and untainted feelings. Despite being idealistic and unrealistic, it was perfect that way. Now it feels slightly tainted.

well, lets get on with the manga now!

So the last two episodes have made me extremely dislike Azuki. She was ridiculously controlling in this situation, a problem that actually had nothing to do with her. She can't just demand Mashiro to go and tell her things that aren't even his business and he has no right to tell. It was Takagi's and Miyoshi's problem, and yet she started yelling about how she cant trust him because he didn't tell her about her mom and his uncle. It had nothing to do with the actual situation.

Anyway, I absolutely love Aoki now. She's so adorable now that she's not acting like a stuck up prick. Oh if her knight is who it looks like it is, I'm gonna be crazy happy.

Oh and Nakai, how the hell did he turn into such a douche, how many role reversals can this show pull off in one episode!! That was ridiculous, I'm glad she slapped him, he deserves worse for acting all high and mighty when he doesn't have anything going on with him anyway. The assistant probably doesn't like him either. I hope he ends up in the snow begging to go back to Aoki again.

I forgot, I dislike Azuki's mom now to. She just completely ignored the fact Miyoshi just said she got in a fight with a friend which is why she was depressed, and started asking about how Azuki and Mashiro were doing. Timing much lady!!!

Great ep! didn't recall it being as funny in the manga.

Only thing that's bothering me is whether they're planning to have a new ED since there are only 10 ep's left for this season...?

When Aoki slapped Nakai I was soooooooo happy :')

I used to feel sorry for Nakai because he had unrequited love, but then suddenly he became so arrogant, bossy, rude, and plain ANNOYING. Now I hate his guts. As for Aoki, it's the opposite. I thought she was rude in the beginning now she's my favorite female in the show. This proves that Bakuman has some good character development!!

I think Aoki x Takagi is VERY cute, and I'd so love to see it, except I'd feel pretty bad for Miyoshi because she's also extremely nice and suits Takagi.
