That Akatsuki doll is so cuteeeee <3

Anyways, it was cute to see Akatsuki in this episode, a lot of it too. Akatsuki with hair down in yukata. I found this episode to be relaxing again. Those bakery goods make me very hungry.

I got some feels for Minori this episode. Poor girl...;.;

Two girls wanting to invite main guy, who is overworking, for cake pair eating. Festival time. lol @ Assassin girl doll. The little girl is for people to understand him, and assassin girl is for herself, who seem to just realize that it's "date".

lol @ him decided to go for 3, and the goal of the competition was "pair". lol @ hatred from behind. That cake maid is such an evil that giving 12 whole cakes. Assassin girl's action to him made the girl realize both girls like him.

Darn, this episode. Traditional School Festival trope much? Cake eating and everything. Well Shiroe's harem keeps on growing. XD

Anyways this just reinforces the hate heaped upon Shiroe, considering there's a lot of NEETs populating Akiba as seen when Lenessia was invited last episode. xP

Also that Akatsuki doll. So qt. :3

Pretty lax episode again. I'm really curious on how they're going to end the show though with only 3 episodes to go.

A love triangle really?

What you lost ways to make some real character development and drama, and went with something that has been beaten to death?

Still it was not a bad episode. It had humourous moments.

Well, that wasn't what I expected when I saw the pv XD

Didn't expect the drama to go to the extent of Minori crying. Poor Minori :(

I like both girls but Minori ending up with Shiroe would be pretty weird. She's a middle schooler! That's about at least 10 years difference from Shiroe XD
Nice conversation with Tohya. The kid is pretty mature ^^

I wonder if Minori knows how old Akatsuki really is. Or does she thinks that Akatsuki is a loli like her XD

Seems like the romance will continue to nxt ep too hehe ^^

Anyway for this ep was pretty cute. Esp seeing all those Akatsuki emotions.
How she was blushing all the time and rolling around in her room thinking that her rival is a middle school girl was lol XD And her shouting a DATE!!! was hilarious XD Akatsuki-chan Kawaiiiii <3

Lol'd so much at her "I require fashion" XD

Henrietta is also pretty much officially part of Shiroe's harem XD? Dat Akatsuki doll was <3

The cake buffet part was hilarious with Akatsuki and Minori's rivalry, seems Akatsuki was annoyed by the fact Minori is with them more than Minori was XD And lol'd so much at everyone's stares, thinking Shiroe is bragging, bringing two girls with him and probably misunderstood as a lolicon too XD Dat "Say Ahhh" part was priceless XD Poor Shiroe, he's a lucky bastard but u gotta feel bad for him there going out fat and all...even needing to pay for it XD

Akatsuki patting his head was really adorable. I really want to see how Akatsuki really looks like >.<!! and why she chose being a loli, she did say but I'm sure there's something else to it.

Not gonna lie, I don't feel anything for minori. Middle schooler should not be watching the college dude. I like the assassin x villain in glasses combo. I just can't see any other couple involving shiroe.

No Minori, just NO! I can defend your imitating Shiroe's tactics and being emo but don't you dare come between Shiroe x Akatsuki aka OTP. NO! GO AWAY! SHOO! I'll sic Crusty on you if you keep on this path.

Lenessia dolls, Akatsuki dolls, kawaii!!

Henrietta giving Shiroe massages and Shiroe liking them puts Henrietta in the harem list. As for Marielle, she was faily ok this episode.

I have a feeling Tohya doesn't understand how Minori feels towards Shiroe. He thinks it's not a love interest or at least that's how I viewed his reply. Maybe I'm wrong and he does know Minori likes Shiroe.

Akatsuki was very cute this episode, and the whole feeding Shiroe cake felt more like a battle. The result we get is FAT Shiroe and later he loses all those pounds. Must have had a hard painful time getting rid of all that weight lol.

One of the funniest and cutest ep yet.
Expected love triangle but not this fast. Wow, a bit too fast paced? But it feels a bit right too...
3/5 wonder how they going to go with the last 3 ep...
Also the feels in minori part is not too feelsey probably because it's too fast paced.
Very nice soundtrack during that scene though
Edit: Oh God just realized one of the cakes feature Shiroe, Akatsuki and Minori. Dat detail

Well, since they said they would only have to eat '12', being three instead of two, but they didn't say cake slices or whole cakes. And there weren't any rules that stated it would be cake slices only in the contest, so it's technically allowed, even if it's considered eeeevil.

I think i just saw a spark of yandere trait in Minori lol.

But poor her, either Akatsuki or that mysterious girl will be the one to get Shiroe's heart.

I don't know, if they wanted me to feel this way, but it made me hate Minori for some reason. Cause she wants to get in between Shiroe and Akatsuki. I have anger towards Minori now, and dislike her a lot!

Can't deal with heartbreak. Shiroe sees Minori as like a younger sister from the way things look so I don't think they'll ever get together. And anyway she's like 14!
Apart from that it was a nice peaceful episode, wonder how they'll end it with only a few eps left.

Shiroe and Akatsuki all the way. They are both around the same age so I can agree to that, and I think they would make a nice couple. Minori although a sweet girl is just far too young for Shiroe. I liked her intentions though. She should stick to being his student and learn from him and she shouldn't let her feelings get in the way.

The fat Shiroe literally cracked me up. I was crying! xD

They left out the parts involving Krusty ad Lennessia, as well the part that involved Rudy and Izuzu, i am a bit disappointed but it cant be helped i guess.

LoL yeah this is pretty much the first time that Henrietta has showed some affection for shiroe and it will be pretty much more evident in next weeks episode

Uh Minori, i am sorry but she is to young for shiroe at the very least she would have to wait 4 more years before she can even try, it is not i have anything against her being with shiroe, her character is quite mature and responsible it more has to do with moral issue, but to say they dont fit because they dont like her character that is a poor excuse.

It seems like some people already have started to complain about this being more soft than previous episodes but that is to be expected it is following the same path of the LN although with a few things skipped here and there but nothing serious.

Yeah i agree with the rest, this stroy arc would finish nicely but we will be left hanging with a cliff hanger, but there is already evidence that they are preparing for a continuation and the reception and support of this series has been quite well. it really now depends on the author of when he will release the rest of the LN volumes so they would have enough material to produce more.

a cultural issue i gues

Minori 14
Lenessia 15
Serara 15-17

Japan: The national age of consent in Japan is 13 as specified by the Japanese Penal Code Articles 176 and 177

I don't think Serara is too near 17, given her behaviour. Unless it's mentioned in the LNs, somewhere (SPOILERS I DON'T WANT) Otherwise, yeah it's a cultural issue. Still, I don't think Shiroe is going to be interested, given his age and personality. Not to mention his relationship with that Tea Party member in his flashbacks.

Oh i see well that is an entirely a different case scenario, it really does depend on cultural issue, if the age of consent for japanese is 13 than i can accept that even if my cultural ethics are in conflict with there's, oh boy i am sensing a cultural batte is going to start if this keeps going on

Oh, man! I was feeling for Shiroe in this episode. Two girls both vying for his attention by shoving cake down his throat? That's harsh!!

Aktasuki looked adorable in her kimono.

Looks like Minori has just experienced her first heartbreak. Sad panda...

I'm on the Shiroe X Henrietta ship. The way the two of them interact with each other is so much more natural...like they're on the same wavelength. Akatsuki is cute and all, but the way she expects Shiroe to automatically know what she's feeling, thinking, or trying to say is a bit immature and annoying. This man basically has the weight of Akihabara on his shoulders, he's a Guild Master, and a scribe. While Akatsuki is busy being coy and evasive, Shiroe is probably thinking about possible threats to Akihabara and strategies to either meet them head on, evade, or invade.

Henrietta gets it and understands Shiroe...so much so that she instinctively massaged his shoulders. Minori and Akatsuki would turn beet red and escape from the room before that happened.

Shiroe X Henrietta FTW!!

Anyone here wanna go for Henreitta route? Lol...i almost felt that she got love interest in him when Shiroe suddenly looks back. And she blushes :) Well this episode sure changes it phase abruptly from strategy to typical love triangle.
Few more episodes to finish & I think the last two episode will be a info dump just like they explain World Fraction. I hope not.

Personally I prefer Minori over Akatsuki. She got more active relationship with Shiro as his student. Akatsuki don't have much interaction with Shiro beside being use like a ninja.

If Minori is Level 90, she'll have more use than Akatsuki. I'm not even fan of her really. I just don't find Akatsuki that good.

Since Shiroe lives in or near Tokyo he would soon find himself in Jail if he tried to have sex with Minori. The federal law sets a minimal level, but it isn't the controlling law. Age of Consent is a prefectural concern, with each prefecture setting its own law. In Tokyo, for example, the age of consent between a girl and an adult is 17. Since Shiroe is over 20, he would be breaking the law.

When the minimal law is set to 13 for simplicity and also because of honesty. The Japanese know that teenagers have sex, and have no desire to criminalize it. But they do (on the prefectural level) criminalize sex between adults and under 17 girls.

This has been a PSA for all the Loli lovers here. Don't go to Japan thinking you will be fine, you will not.

As someone who has watched over 150 shows, I am surprised you still didn't realize that love triangles and harem are practically part of every Anime nowadays -_-;

What ruined SAO is that it's writer handled the love triangle in an utmost horrible manner (well, his executions are generally unimpressive).

You can't complain about the ending here. 6 and 7 volume are two parts of one story and they can't allow to adapt all 7 volumes in 25 eps same as to adapt only 4. Just that 5th volume is smth like calm before the storm: a lot of character development but not much plot.

Three more episodes to go. I don't know how the're gonna end this.

It is an anime but I still always get bothered when young girls fall for older guys.

Anyways, I think the show has gotten worse since mid-season, but we'll see how it ends.

I actually find it cute. First crushes often confuse admiration with love.

What bothers me is when it goes the other way, that's just creepy.
