THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
A definite improvement on the first. The series picked up a notch. I enjoyed watching this so I'll probably stick with it. I can't wait for the next episode. Looks like it's going to be full of romance~

I'm starting to really like this, great episode. Noe is indeed moe and I'm looking forward to more. I noticed a lot of little details in the animation and other things, this will be one of my favorites of the winter season if it continues like this.

Hiromi seemed a bit like an emotionless doll in ep 1, it's nice to see that she's deeper than that.

I enjoyed this episode a lot more than the first (and I enjoyed the first as well). I am also glad that Hiromi got a lot more personality this episode. Seems like Nobuse and the red haired girl (forgot her name) are dating too. I think I like that fact :D

Looking forward to next ep!!

i think that nobuse likes that red haired shop girl but she actually has her eyes set on the main character ;-) at least so it seems to me - but i got that idea in the first ep already

this series really looks promising to me. i love the animation and ALL characters till now. thats a first for me. i wonder who that guy that noe hugs is.

im really looking forward to the next ep!

I was a bit confused by this episode, why did Hiromi ask to be Noe's friend when she never wanted to be friends with her in the first place?

Anyways still a pretty good episode, liked how the characters displayed more of their personality in this one.

Maybe because she is getting closer to Shin?

Noe's the best! She's so straight forward, I can't believe she said that to Hiromi. lol

Anyway, great episode. 5/5.

MOE TO THE MAX!!!

Noe is strange, but at the same time she saw right through Hiromi. The tears thing still weirds me out.

I forgot about that. It instantly reminded me of Kobato (a publishing manga by Clamp). I liked that part, and then it shifts so that he's inside a bottle. I wonder if it's true, what Noe is saying. I think if she collects anyone's tears it'll be Shin's...

I guess I'm in the minority here but, I thought it was OK. There were some awkward pacing and dialogue issues to me...and I just feel like I could be paying attention to a more interesting show this season.

Enjoyed the episode. Maybe I'm just tired, but who was Noe hugging? Being in a tshirt and panties and hugging some guy seems like it could be a boyfriend we don't know about. Yay for being tired and confused.

Some kind of caretaker I suppose, maybe a bigger brother she lives with.

I liked the EP, but I don't like the mysterious guy! NOES! he's stealing my precious Noe XD

But I get this EF feeling. like it's trying to imitate it.

Another good episode for this show. It's really nice animated and the plot's shaping up.

Btw, anyone else noticed the music sample that sounded exactly like that Mahoromatic tune? It was played a couple of times in the episodes, 15 mins and forward.

The thing about wanting to be friends I think Shin made up; Hiromi's intentions were not clear to us at any one point. That's actually something I like about what the show is doing: the characters clearly have reasons for doing what they're doing, and those reasons are obfuscated by some kind of semi-opaque film.

Also, am I about the only person here who prefers Hiromi at this point? She seems far less cutesy, which is a lot of points in my book.

That was obvious, yes; it doesn't exactly explain why she would want to 'be introduced' to Noe.

I guess she did it because she wanted a reason to approach him. Besides she maybe believed that becoming friends with Noe would give her more opportunities at spending time with him as well. We'll see in the upcoming episodes, might be a totally different motive.

This episode made me like Hiromi. I found it odd that at school she is one personality and at "home" she's another one entirely. Which is the real Hiromi or is it both? That shot she made was sweet too. I wouldn't have expected her to be the jock type but it works.

I think later on that Noe and Hiromi will become friends. Hiromi is intrigued by Noe and Noe looks like she respected the new grave Hiromi made (which she didn't have to in the first place.)

Diner girl is out of the picture to me as far as a love interest for the guy because she has a boyfriend. It doesn't look like a School Days will happen so I see her as the support role. Since she is a year older she might have to fill the old maid role so to speak in harem like anime (like Haruka from Love Hina.)

Speaking of harem, I don't see this as a harem yet. There is at best a triangle. I think right now two points on the triangle are reciprocal but so far away they can't see it. The other...I don't know what she is doing...she's odd but has an attachment. It may not be anything more than friendly.

We shall see.

If we got 80% or higher let me know! :)

Am I the only one concerned about the chickens? From the next episode preview it looks like the white chicken will try to fly!! GO BRAVE CHICKEN!!!

But Hiromi was right. The grave should be outside since there is still a live chicken in the pen and to call it a grave when a chicken is still living in there isn't fair to the chicken that is still alive.

Either way, this show has surpassed all my expectations so far, it's amazing.

Oh well, this ep was alright though....

i like the episode itself as it seems to dive further into everyones relations and lives, BUT there is one major problem... the CGI overveiw shots they use are so ridged and stale its an intense kick to the sack for the anime overall
