THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Dan, Konoha is pretty athletic.

Her obsession on Benio is still on another level though. Dat calories. The news report club is having a blast with this lol. So much competitions between Mashiro and Konoha, it's almost laughable at this point. I wonder if they will ever become friends someday. Oh shit, Konoha...that's a bold proposal there.

Another good episode loving the pair of Suetsugi and Mashiro they are just too cute. There can be a bit too much Benio at times and that ending was way too predictable.

Laughed so much when Benio came to a generalization that Kobeni was a guy and was her little brother. xD *facepalm*

Mashiro and Konoha race to the rooftop was fun to watch.

A crying Mashiro, a proposal by Konoha.
The show's gotten quite fond of cliff-hangers, though considering Konoha has been a background character until recently I don't see fortune favouring her.

Aww Mashiro crying was so cute. Unexpected of Konoha to ask Hakuya to marry him. Kobeni looks shocked by it. Can't wait for the next episode.

Granted, the whole Konoha getting interested in Hakuya due to their species being rare was well expected, heck even her asking him out was within expectations, but didn't thought she would jump to a marriage proposal, especially so quickly.

Still, can't say I'm 100% behind this development since it's just to force a speedy development between Hakuya and Kobeni. If she was actually a legit candidate I would've enjoyed it more, but the pairing is set in stone here.

because jose21... you have no idea what this anime genre is about if you think it ruined it. and to be fair without a love triangle it would be a bit pointless to make a story, yea they could do it about them growing to love each other but then you have no suspense, no "bad guy" no "fight for whats right". and now they're letting you have your own ideas about what you want them to do. if not then your just along for the ride, and this is an anime not a roller coaster. you cant just look at it from afar and know what its going to do and decide if you're going to like it. you have to watch it and find out of you like it based on how the plot unfolds.

the only problem I have is it says it has 12 episodes.... its episode 8 and they just made a love triangle... WOW! I'm calling it now, next 4 episodes are going to be rushed like a B***H. and therefore its going to be an great anime that got trashed by the ending.

1. The mall music was actually pleasant, even tho it was really faint

2. Benio's siscon-ness is great

3. Nice plot twist w/ suetsugi trying to claim hakuya. at least we know she goes both ways. Wonder what power she has.

I actually clicked on all of that lmao! Benio got absolutely destroyed in this episode. I'm actually surprised she didn't turn to dust and got blown away. Her delusions of Kobeni being a guy almost made me choke XD!

That rooftop bit was funny. I thought the two jumping down to the back of the gym was cool...and then they suddenly get the shivers from the impact haha!

We all know Konoha has no chance at all. Like zero. I doubt they're going to drag out this whole love triangle. Hakuya's going to shoot her down in the next episode and it will be just some funny one-sided antics from Konoha ;) I'm confident Doga Kobo knows how to do comedy right.

Benio has a very interesting train of thought...the conclusions she arrived in are pretty wacky.

That marriage proposal was surprising. Not sure if that's because I wasn't expecting a love triangle or for Konoha to be into guys or anyone other than Benio in the first place :P

Really enjoyable episode :D

Poor Benio this ep hahaha...the way Kobeni is just telling her it's a secret and it's non of ur business with that innocent happy smile was hilarious XDXDXD Benio's reactions were priceless lol esp her black and white blood cough XDXDXD and her only an imouto can heal a scar left by an imouto while hugging Benio XD

Lol'd at Konoha's monologue while doing her acrobatic flips XD Like a pro hehehe ^^
How she imagined Kobeni blackmailing her just doesn't work and that Hohohoho laugh doesn't really fit with Kobeni's cute image XD

Benio's overthinking and her OMG was lol...Poor Nadeshiko as usual having to put up with her XD from "Have u passed the line" to "Have they held hands???" XD what an extreme spectrum XD Also thinking Kobeni's a guy XD

Seems like Kobeni's birth bearing hips have increased in size more ;) XD Hakuya saying there's nothing wrong with that and nothing wrong with a big wrack XD
The king of bluntness hehehe ^^ Kobeni's reactions are kawaii as usual <3

Konoha and Mashiro racing to the roof was hilarious and the face off in the wind looked epic hehe ^^ Followed by them jumping off the roof looking cool. Well didn't last wrong with how their feet hurt XD

Mashiro crying and then hugging Hakuya taking the choco and eating it was adorable :3

As expected seems Konoha has her eyes on Hakuya, I don't feel bad for her at all for what's gonna happen though. There was really no need for that to be a cliffhanger knowing how Hakuya will reply being the king of bluntness and all ;)

Suetsugi's impression of Kobeni is so ridiculously off the mark...

Though it's nothing compared to Benio's...

That race...

Benio's fantasy is closer to the mark than usual - one of them is fighting over her. Unfortunately it's not the one Benio wishes was doing it.

and that ending scene...

Trashed is a bit strong. But yeah, we shouldn't expect an adaptation to have a proper ending. Especially if the manga is still ongoing (and I hope for its translation. I want to read it).
Anyhow, rushed or not it's a really nice RomCom.

Konoha is very cute but she stands no chance against Kobeni.

Poor Benio xD That male Kobeni, hahahaha. Did Mayura and Mashiro just have a 'naughty' conversaton about a 'pen' and her rack? ahem ahem. Benio worrying scene was so fun to watch.

Romance conflict, yes! Looking forward to next episode!

Benio got rejected and seemed to have taken it pretty hard, tho she only got rejected in her mind and she will probably find out what it really was about at some point.
It seems Kobeni has a rival tho one that doesn't seem majorly interesting Konoha seemed to be doing what her mother told her and not what she wants herself.
Or at least that's what her last few sentences suggested i wonder how this will turn out next week with that major cliffhanger.

In so much that she only proposed because her mother told her to propose to any male fellow species, we can stop thinking about a "love triangle", love ain't got nothing to do with it. Plus we know that Hakyua is completely imprinted with Kobeni, so no real challenge there either.

If this was done purely to spur Kobeni, then I would agree that it is pretty lame, because that ship has already sailed, but what I think this will do is to force more exposure of "others" and their world to Kobeni. If so then it was a fun way of starting to bring the "unexplained" more into focus.

Meh, with the main couple set in stone, the only thing I'm expecting is Konoha getting shot down on the spot and before Kobeni takes any action.

Perhaps without a full explanation, resulting in Konoha getting obsessed about why she was rejected... and very possibly in a comedic way if it goes this way.

Honestly, the (though also cliche) "reporter out to unmask them" plotline has better chances of taking off.

Anyway, total outsider lady Benio sure received a critical hit. XD

With Hakuya's personality I really doubt the trouble will come from him.

Hakuya will probably say "No" or something along those lines in the next episode, then Kobeni will start wondering "If it's really rare for their species to meet, wouldn't it be better for Hakuya to marry Konoha? I mean, I'm just a human, etc.." - and that's what'll cause the drama.

I can see that happening, Kobeni is the only one who's unsure in their relationship after all.

I have to be honest though, if Kobeni wasn't there I would pick Konoha as replacement, I really liked her in this episode.

Kobeni's pretty shocked when she heard Suetsugi's marriage proposal to Hakuya though we all know that Hakuya will say that he is only interested with Kobeni.

Poor Benio. Her reaction was hilarious .

Benio is super funny as usual. Whaaaaaaat? I definitely though Suetsugi wouldn't say that since she just said he's pretty "spacey". GOOOOD WHATS GONNA HAPPEN, I'm pretty sure Hakuya will refuse but what'll Kobeni do?
