THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So a few things to discuss:
- Ai obviously likes Shinchirou
- Noe has a brother
- Hiromi's one lying biatch
Anyway, how was that ending? >.< Man, I can't wait for the next ep.

It was really well done. It's debatable if Hiromi's reaction at the end was because she really likes Shinichirou, or because she was embarrassed that he heard what she said about Noe's brother. It's more interesting if we assume that she does, in fact, like Shinichirou, and also didn't know that number 4 was Noe's brother. In that case, she accidentally creates an explanation for asking to be Noe's friend, and forces Shinichirou to take what she said as truth.

Also, the preview was interesting. It sounds like Noe's brother is going to ask Shinichirou to go out with Noe?

Very entertaining episode. Some background information, interesting twists but not enough Noe. Hiromi's obviously adopted, looking forward to when they explain why and how.

Noe's very funny, I'm really looking forward to some more of her screentime in the next ep.

Explained in first episode, Hiromi's parents died , and her father's friend took her in, aka shin'ichiro's dad.


Episode was fun, rly interesting, aaaaaaaarg, i can't decide wich girl he will end up with but i bet 200 chicken seeds on Ai-chan being the girl, i've got a good instinct when it comes to stuff like this, I dunno why but i just feel it.

I'm rooting for Ai-chan now!

Hiromi's reaction at the end was priceless, the animation of it was very well done too. Normal eyes to Super Shock!
I can't wait for next episode.

This ep was pretty good. I'm a bit confused why Shinichirou's mom always seems mad and gets even more mad when Shinichirou 's dad mentions Hiromi is their kid now. Is there something we haven't been told yet ;). It would be hilarious if in the end Hiromi and Shinichirou hook up only to find out they're related by blood lol. Id probably shed a tear and then laugh my ass off.

Honestly in my opinion I think Hiromi really does like Shinichirou. Even though all the evidence points to the number 4 basketball player there's still that flashback of her past that she cant seem to get rid of, of her and Shinichirou together walking after she got lost and scared. Theres also her best friend that thinks shes lying. So I really hope they do end up together in the end, but this definitely brought some drama to what seemed like a drama-less show.

Ai and Noe seem to much like secondary characters in terms of mutual love hookups with Shinichirou. So I don't really think either will end up with him. At least thats how I feel. It is painfully obvious that Ai likes him though. I feel bad for her b/f but I think things will work out for them in the end. You can kind of see it when he mentions that he'd love to die by her cooking and she freezes wile getting soda and the screen turns into a picture kind of.

Prediction number 1: Shinichirou will be asked by Noe's brother to go out with her and him possibly thinking about it because he thinks he has no chance with Hiromi anymore. Then Hiromi finds out, becomes a little depressed, and then thinks about asking out Noe's brother to cause jealousy. Somewhere along the line Shinichirou will figure out Hiromi has liked him the whole time. There will probably be some other random things happening to add to the drama and then some confrontations between Hiromi and Shinichirou. He will find her crying for the first time since she joined his family. They will probably talk some and then hookup.

The ending was awesome, it made the whole episode better for me. I'm going to say that Hiromi lied and still likes shinchirou.

I get the felling that Shinichiro's mom was against taking in Hiromi. I also think that Hiromi is lying as well. This is getting preety interesting even though its only the third episode. I think it was a good idea to not have Shinichiro run away at the end because if he did then....well......the confrontation of them after Hiromi said she liked that one guy was perfect. We'll have to wait till the next episode to see how it plays out. Get ready for excuses. Also the fact that Hiromi actually does remember what Shinichiro was saying even though she said she didn't remember might say something.

Noe all the way!!! Screw Hiromi! I can sense that Noe already knows that Shinichiro likes her, Noe isn't dense kind of girl. Remember what she said to Hiromi? That Hiromi doesn't want to be friends with her. Yeah that, that's cuz Noe noticed that she likes Shinichiro. (i think)

PREDICTION: Shinichiro will go out with Noe, but they will SOMEHOW break up. After they break up, Noe can "get her tears back". But then, they will SOMEHOW get together again and Noe will show her "True Tears", aka tears of happiness? lol. The end, happy ending.

lol, either way, Hiromi is screwed up on this episode. Remember you guys when Shinichiro was wondering why Hiromi wants to be friends with Noe? He thought that the person close to Noe is the person Hiromi likes. Shinichiro thought it was him, since he was the only guy who closely talks with Noe. But then Noe has a brother (which he just recently knew), which is the number 4 basketball player, the person who Shinichiro heard when Hiromi's friend were asking her who she likes.. XD lol

Anyway, awesome episode. Better than H2O Rocks your Soul (IMO).

The premise seems to be that of a serious romantic tale, bring on the drama baby! I hope the plot focuses on the 3 harem girls without forsaking one for the other until the very last episode, I want True Tears damnit! xD

It feels like other than Noe, both Hiromi and Ai have previous ties to Nakagami (not gonna type that hellish name) that probably stretches since childhood. I'm interested as to how these girls will react to the usurper, Noe.

I could feel the drama and the emotions being displayed by the characters, think I may have given the show too little credit back in episode 1...

Hope the plot thickens...and yes True Tears right now is leagues better than H2O.

Excellent episode. Just loved the ending when Hiromi was lying and Shinichirou overheard her. I would like Noe to end up with Shinichirou but I'm relatively sure that he'll end up with Hiromi somehow...

Yeah, unfortunately, I kinda feel like that too. Since childhood friends has stronger bonds with each other. No, I'm still rooting with Noe.

I bet $10 he will end up with Noe. =P

Not sure what it is, but I liked this series since ep 1, and it seems like it's just getting better. It's not like other series where I just watch more episodes waiting to see if something good's going to happen. Hmmm I really can't pinpoint it.

so that's why Hiromi wanted to be Noe's friend. So she could me her older brother. makes sense in a way. poor shinichiro. This is one of my faves. Makes all the other anime that came out around this time really boring.

As Ai said, if you can't get the guy you like go for something that's close to him. What could be closer than his friend and possibly his male best friend. This way she sees him all the time and can still flirt too! I think Ai has grown to like the best friend over time but she needs to kill her feelings for Shin' first if that is going to last.

I am interested in the mother. Does she have some sort of complex for Shin'? I think she knows that Hiromi likes Shin' and she doesn't approve. This could also be the reason why she won't accept Hiromi as a child of hers. I was wondering though if Hiromi is a product of an illegitimate affair but who knows.

Noe however has dropped down a notch in my book. She is being annoying and selfish right now. She won't listen to what Shin' says and deceives him. That will need to change otherwise I will not like her character as much.

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

I think this series is gonna end up a Shin x Noe and Noe's bro x Hiromi. Technically Hiromi and Shin are still brother and sister, unless theres going to be some kind of brother sister complex at the end of the series.

I so could watch this entire show in no time if all episodes were out. Gah! It's really worth waiting for though.

I can't pick a favourite from the three girls. Ai's definitely the most cute of them all but we know too little about her as of now. Noe is... well, pretty weird and she's making the show fun to watch. You'll never know quite what to expect. I would still say Hiromi is the most interesting since she hasn't really shown any emotions yet. I'm guessing this can put some off because she's a bit on the calculating side but I dunno....

Really liked how the episode ended. Drama! I hardly think that she honestly likes Noe's brother but who knows. It wouldn't be all that interesting if that was the case.

"If you can't get the guy, go for someone close to him" ?? Women are stupid when they do things like that, lol. Never works. Never thought that Hiromi would befriend Noe to get close to her BROTHER though. I thought it was Shin, all the way.

I also want to know why Shin's mother is all psycho against Hiromi. She's really getting on my nerves, that woman...

xD Shin's dream was damn funny, especially Raigomaru's little appearance. And I agree, not enough Noe in this episode. I kind of hope that Hiromi does like Noe's brother so that Noe can end up with Shin.
