THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well, that was cute. They're still going out like usual. EXORCIST?! Lol. Koko's reaction to that was priceless. Wait is that the tea club? Excellent!

More drama with Linda again, no surprise there.

Thats what you get for attempting to keep your past away. Seriously if you start remember things don't fight it its part of who you are. Its not healthy to force yourself to forget which is what ghost banri is

His memories coming back all of a sudden. I feel like the drama is going to get intense from here.

I was worried for a moment that he'd get the amnesia form the point of the accident to the present but it seems it's just his memories returning randomly. Ghost Banri never left.

The interaction with the Tea Club girls was priceless.

So they're actually going with having old Banri starting to take over. They're definitely going to have to rush it for an decent ending with only 4 episodes left.

The way Linda has acted throughout the whole show make me wonder if she knows what she wants. She avoids Yana-san because she doesn't feel anything for him. Now she'll probably start to avoid Banri now(despite having his memories back), since she's felt she's moved on. She'll probably be the character in the end all alone, because she doesn't know what will make her happy in life.

Didn't think that they'll pull this on us, but it might explain the melancholy second opening. Goodby Current Banri. Poor Koko.

The thing I don't understand about Linda is why did she not contact or at least attempt to contact Banri for that year he had to repeat while he had no memory of the past. Instead she just mooched and watched him from a distance like the flashback scene where Banri leaves the hospital. Did she really think she would just meet him again and they would just 'fall in love' because it was fated or something??

To me it seems like there is some guilt that kept Linda away from Banri for that year. It doesn't seem right that if you were in love with someone you would not help them in their time of greatest need.

I think the impact of Banri's memories returning won't be a tremendous one. Certainly not enough to dissolve things between Banri and Koko. I'm betting on the next episode will show Banri "putting his money where his mouth is." In other words, since the reunion episode he has said every five minutes "Ive totally accepted my past :D." But now that he remembers all of it he has to actually accept everything rather than making empty statements. After that I'm expecting the last few episodes to deal with the drama between the group of characters rather than confrontation between Linda, Banri, Koko and end with Banri putting a ring on Koko's finger

I groaned when that whole thing with Banri's past began to happen.

Horrible.

Its possible that she felt like she had no right to talk to him until recently feeling partially guilty for what happened to Banri. All I know is that the show might pull a 180 toward Linda Direction.

7:08 banri cheating with nana!!!

8:35 koko x oka = yuri ftw

19:19 awwww hell yehhhh. Old banri is back. Turn up dat drama

------------------
1. Banri giving a ring to koko is a disaster waiting to happen

2. The koko in this ep was likable… not a crazy/stalker/rich bitotch. She matured. Plz continue like this koko.

3. It took 20 eps for Old banri to return. Hopefully something tragic happens. School Days ending ftw

I guess Linda won't confess or anything and cause Banri's memories to return; that was what I was predicting...ehhh...we'll see how it goes

The drama continues to raise... That's good, I'm really enjoying watching this show :) .
Koko looked really good this episode but this new situation surely will hurt her.
Banri talked in the last episodes about accepting his past but now he has the memories from the past and Old Banri with them...
I want to see the next episode to see what are they going to deal with this situation. I hope that new Banri and his love for Koko wins but I have a bad feeling about that...
I'm learning English so maybe I make mistakes :)

Why is there so much hate for Old Banri? He himself didn't even know where he was at the time, so him intervening clearly wasn't deliberate.

Ghost Banri's gone now isn't he? I was kinda thinking he was a representation of the harm Banri was doing to himself by actively trying to ignore his past, and that now that he's accepted his past, Ghost Banri's gone, as we saw him fall on the bridge.

But naturally those memories have to go somewhere, so he's getting them back now.

I still don't get it. Banri only got his old memories back while still keeping his newer ones. He already had some vague idea about the accident so what's with the sudden freak out? Seems a bit too dramatic to me. Especially considering the amount of times they've switched places.


No doubt by the time we see Banrii give Kouko the ring, it will be the last episode.

Yea. Sure. Give us some stuff that doesn't matter, and then the drama near the end for shock value. Getting tired of this.

Yeah this just spells drama. The exorcist thing was pretty hilarious. I also found it interesting that Nana was resting on Banri's shoulder( it could have been because she was extremely exhausted, but still!)

What part of it was hard to understand? She said herself that she feels guilty about him getting run over, that if she were on time or faster the accident wouldn't have happened. And then the guilt is made worse by the fact that he lost his memories and wants no part of his old self, as she stated herself Banri was a walking bomb that could go off at any moment. The anime even mentioned that he refused visits from anyone that knew him before the accident.

This time he forgot his memories after the accident for a bit, that's why he freaked out. But,

It just feels dragged out. His memories coming back came out of nowhere. I would have accepted it if he regained them after the car accident, but now it just seems out of place.

I dont think its Ghost Banri.It just might be that Banri's memories are returning.When he said ''world is shining'' i had a feeling something is going to happen very soon - he saw alot of lights there, and it might have made him remember that light from a scooter which made him fall from a bridge.Thats why he was saying ''i've been waiting for Linda on bridge''.It seems like either both Banri's are merging, or because current Banri accepted his past, those are the effects.
About Ghost Banri...i think he learned his lesson after car accident.

Happy days are over. Those takeovers or shoud I say flashbacks are sure result of his head injury. And my prediction is those seizures would be more and more frequent in time. And if Linda is the only one who can bring him back... Well.

But it's kinda fishy. Four more eps and we still don't know who was riding that motorcycle. There was really no reason for this memory feedback. Other than that everything was finally fine for him, he was living his golden time. But I guess that's the problem, what if the is nothing but dream? He will sure ask himself those and similiar questions. Schizophrenia is nothing easy. Not to mention that should those situations repeat he would be put into very bad mental condition and would be living in fear that this can happen anytime from now on.

What part?? Every part! If you actually love someone you don't abandon them. As for refusing visits I really doubt that his parents would have refused to let her visit if they knew that he was wanting to give her the ring. It makes me think that Linda's feelings were pretty fickle. She just got on with her life and left him behind.

The girls from the tea Club can be so dramatic. Banri must have be really scared that his memories are returning and might be taking over.
