I really wish I hadn't read spoilers for this series after the third episode, because the tension created by this ever-changing love polygon is getting unbelievably high.

Granted, I don't exactly know how everything works out, but I know who ends up with who.

Y'know, I don't really care who ends up with who; just that Kaoru and Sentarou stay best buds, in the end. First love's a bitch, but there'll always be more fish in the sea.

A pretty good episode and in response to the ONE GUY saying this is better than "Steins;Gate", no, it's not. Not even near. The series is good but not up to that level. (>,>)

it actually is. and exponentially a lot. you really can't underestimate the power of brilliantly-directed, well-written, and splendidly musically composed slice-of-life anime.

this and Usagi Drop are factually a lot better than S;G that even genre-boundaries-they-mustn't-be-compared-because-they're-different-shows couldn't disapprove. ^^

Back to too much melodrama and not enough jazz...

meh. even though the jazz is one of the aspects of the show that makes it so fun and enjoyable, i believe it's a form of expressing their feelings that build up in all the teenage drama because it's so much more enjoyable and accurate than words and actions. it have a purpose but isn't really the central focus of the show.

Another great episode. Yurika is a great character. Imagine how hard it must have been for a girl in Japan in the 60's to try to live her life on her own terms.

Sentaro is heading for another heartbreak.

Re the gynecologist: it's quite possibly a check up because she is becoming sexually active and needs a prescription for birth control. I know sexual mores in 60's North America, but I'm pretty sure there were some big differences in Japan at that time. Of course if she was pregnant abortions were an acceptable way of dealing with it, which is another reason to see a gynecologist.

For those who missed out, this was also the period of the sexual revolution (much more successful than Jun's comrades were in changing society). The birth control pill was being mass marketed and we were still more than a decade away from the AIDS epidemic, so a lot of social barriers were falling away. Amazing what removing the fear of unwanted pregnancies will do...

And lest we forget these are jazz musicians and hangers on we're talking about here. Jun's a communist and no doubt Richie would have ended up a beatnik if things hadn't changed. (Remember that beatniks actually took a great deal of their philosophy from Japanese Zen teachings, so the exchange went both ways.) I realize that it's the romantic polygon that drives this show, but I just love the social history (and for me nostalgia) of the period.

Funny enough, characters in this show love hurting themselves somehow.
