THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
-------------------------------------
I really do feel sorry for Banri a little now. Definitely a feel trip this episode but at least Linda is in a better mood now. Nana is also quite supportive too.

Mm festival, that looks kinda fun. You go Nana senpai <3 FIGHTO.
Next week's the finale ;.; this has been quite a ride so far. The bromance moments between Mitsuo and Banri is awesome. Man tears ;.;

How should I put it, it seems obvious who is gonna end with Banri and I'm not really happy wiith that, but that's like I thought is going to happen with the same author as toradora.

I still prefer the LindaxBanri Pairing, because I just think that they both fit perfect together and like we saw in the last episodes It's so ** obvious, that she still has feelings for Banri.

I think the Anime is going to end with BanrixKoko but I still believe, that the Light-Novel are going to end with BanrixLinda let's see what happens.

5/5!

Now that we're at this point, I sort of wonder what the point of ghost Banri was. Was it just part of his mind or supernatural? Also, if it was just part of his mind, doesn't it conflict with how things are right now (former Banri doesn't remember anything that has happened since the accident)?

I feel so bad for Banri now. I also feel bad for Koko too, just seeing Banri having these panic attacks and not remembering right in front of her.

No matter what though, his friends are always there for him. Definitely got teary eyed watching the scene with Mitsuo and Banri before the dance. So sad that there is one more episode left :(

It's been a while since I've seen a show with heart wrenching cliff hangers one after another. Can't wait for next week.

It's not just a Linda or Koko only option anymore. If the author wanted to I can totally see a depressing ending where Banri gets an even more serious brain disease to prevent either route.

Got really sick of Ghost Banri. I just wonder if Banri & Koko are going to be just friends or will they be a couple again. I'm feeling rather worried about the last episode and now we all have to wait 1 more week.

Ive been a bit disappointed with this series.

Yes i do feel bad for Banri and Koko, but not as much as i am mad. Would you leave someone because they were dying just cause you were too afraid to lose them? No you would spend every second with them till the very end.

Present Banri has pretty much given up and doesn't even care to try to fight on (seeing as this is medical not sure if there is anything he can actually do to stop it but still)

Past Banri crying and screaming again, shocker.

Ive given up hope for a happy ending, oh well another show will end with me in tears.

I'm at least glad that all of Banri's friends are all there for him, got teary when Mitsuo was was talking to Banri about always being there for him and telling him to come home anytime.

Funny how when Banri shouts (shrieks) it makes me cringe, but when 2D shouts it's the best thing ever! The guy can do no wrong, can't wait to see him butt heads with Koko in the next episode.

I can't honestly tell how it's going to end. The parts that made me sad were the parts where Banri had forgotten Koko when they met AND when it happened the second time it just made me even more sad! Seeing Koko cry uncontrollably was messed up. I really do wish for a happy ending, but who knows there are those times where the ending can be totally messed up.

Yea, Banri is eating dinner by himself at his apartment, and Mitsuo comes in and confesses his love to him. They go out the balcony, stare at the stars, city, and Mitsuo proceeds to kiss Banri's lips. After that, they make love. Miss Ultrasonic confesses to 2D-kun and the two travel to Paris to get married, have babies, and live the true Golden Time.

^Ok on a serious note. I expect Banri to just be friends with everyone. No romance, no Kouko kissing Banri, or Linda confessing. Just a plain friendship episode.


As for what was Ghost Banri. I believe it was just Banri's other self that was trying to take over but settled down afterward. Now we get these normal panic attacks which is quite sad to see Banri in such a depressing state because it's not his fault he has those attacks. As for Kouko, I hope they don't end up together. I mean breaking up with Banri because she doesn't want to see him forget her and leave her. I get her reasons, but if she really did love him she'd stay with him in the good and bad times. What if they got married and after 4 years his panic attacks come back again. Will she leave him to avoid being hurt. Linda is much better with Banri but I doubt either will win.

Ohhh look more bullshit drama. This series has just been one big train wreck. I think all the characters need to see a Doctor, the only normal ones seem to be 2D-kun and Nana. I really hate drama in general because very rarely is it ever done right without being forced or because of some asspull by the author. The moments that are meant be sad end up becoming funny because of the stupidity of it. Banri should get an award for most annoying character of the year!

This is adopted from a novel or something. I suspect they cut out a lot of stuffs in the anime, so it seem like everyone's emotion states change every minute.

I almost fell out of my chair ...i thought you were going all sena on me from oreimo and i sure hope not i really want koko to be with him because i truly feel that she needs him and he needs her in a way they can depend on each....sure it will be tough but what love isnt tough

Damn. This episode really had my feels going all over the place.
I've been watching romance after romance after Toradora, but I was only kept on the edge every single time by this anime.

This is literally the first time that I can't go all Keima Katsuragi and say "I can see the ending."

I've become real with Jesus and I have to say, if Banri was going to psychologist, get suitable pills on his illness, maybe this story would become more realistic in that way and better. But we have anime thus, different "reality" and behavior our protagonist. Imo he shouldn't be with Koko nor Linda. First he have to heal himself and equanimity. No girls allowed (though I still ship Kaga x Banri lol). Next and at the same time - last episode will be like "spiritual fulfillment our minds". I will miss this show ;')

Overall, decent episode, everyone got to make up and we got to see more Nana senpai. The ending is pretty obvious, you're lying to yourself if you say you don't know how this will end.

If I was the writer of this show, I would've shipped NanaXBanri. Nana senpai is obviously best girl.

As a story device, to get the other perspective of his past. The idea of getting to know his past was good, but it feels very out of place to have it be a ghost more or less.

I'm repeating what I've said before in these forums but Tada Banri is seriously ill for crying out loud. It's not like he's trying to forget things on purpose. It's about time that he checks himself in into a hospital.

at this point the most realistic thing would be for him to forget everyone or just remain friends with them all. And the days he spent with Koko would be his "Golden Time".

Of course, there's still a chance that he'll end up with someone, but then he would have to be cured one way or another,

I gotta love Nana. First woman to share Banri's bed like that.

You hate Banri because he didn't "fight for those memories"? Sorry that's not how mental illness works.

Calling Banri an asshole because he is in the middle of a HUGE fucking identity crisis that is in no way his fault is childish. The only thing he should/could have done is go to the doctor more, but it likely would have resulted in the same.

The ending is obvious. The last line establishes he lost his present memories and reverted so he will be back home dicking around then Koko will come and the power of love will emerge and he will remember and still love Koko. they kiss or w/e the end happy happy joy joy.

The major misstep of this series was Ghost Banri. No one is really sure what he was and they could have done this story line of memory loss without it. The characters at times seem inconsistent and make some decisions that it feels like they were forced to make them just to increase the drama.

I liked this episode but I think that Banri should have done something, he knew that he was going to die so just try to live all you can without thinking about it.
He wanted to go hospital, that was a good idea but too late.
And last line makes me think... If he isn't here anymore, how he can say that? Fiction I suppose.
I'm surely going to miss this show...

I don't think this is Ghost Banri because Ghost Banri "saw" the events that happened after Banri lost his memories. He was probably just a representation of Banri's old memories.

I teared up a bit twice in the first half with Koko and Banri talking and Banri temporarily losing his memories right in front of Koko. Also for the first few seconds of the Banri and Mitsuo soon, but then I started laughing when they started showing each others faces because I thought they were gonna make a joke about it sounding like a confession and Banri being creeped out.

I also laughed when Nana said she just decided to sleep in his bed and Linda commented on how not to let her guard down around him because he's a guy.

The mom cares but I think she misses the old Banri despite his previous flaws, which is understandable.
I also think that Linda has moved on from her feelings she had for Banri and she's probably opening up to Mitsuo which sucks for Oka, but I'm a Okax2D fan anyways.

I know it's most likely gonna end with BanrixKoko and somehow the situation will be solved, but the drama is heart wrenching. :(

My prediction: Banri forgets everything post accident, as said at the end of the episode. Then he goes home for awhile to get treatment and come to terms with it, the preview and his conversation with his mom seem to indicate that. After some months have gone by, the whole gang comes to see him. Banri knows of them but doesn't really remember them; then, Chinami shows everyone the video she has put together with all the film she's taken over the course of the show. Banri's memories from the post accident come back, and he remembers his love for Koko. It ends with them together.

Or... Yuyuko Takemiya could say fuck to all that and no one ends up with no one.

12:36 how the hell did linda know where banri would go crazy?

14:51 nana x banri in bed

19:23 banri x yano = YAOI :d

----------------------
1. Seems impossible for banri x koko to become just friends again

2. More nana & linda show time would have been nice

3. Well, next week is last episode. I'd prefer it end bad. Cuz then I'd remember it for a long time
