Murakami's level of self control is only possible in anime or manga. In any other sphere of life or artistic creation, Kazumi would have gotten laid already.


IMHO, the problem is that he has a thing for Neko, so can't cheat on her? Imagine Neko's reaction to such news.


He doesn't even know if she IS his past girlfriend. And they hardly exchanged vows of fidelity neither. They didn't actually make any effort of having a romantic relationship, even. It's just been a bit of blushing of both and he thinking she might be the girl he had a crush on in the past. One could hardly call that an explicit, or even implicit, romantic relationship.

But, even if that were true, Murakami's level of self control is only possible in anime or manga, as Marzan wrote.

I know, it *is* a way of explaining it away, but all in all, it remains rather unrealistic, in as far as almost any boy having that weak of a relation with another girl, would not feel such a thing as being THAT of a burden he wouldn't screw a cute, sex-begging girl who's naked and wrapping her legs around you. Heck, many guys would do it/that, EVEN if they had a long-term relation with another girl, certainly if they thought it wouldn't come out (as Kazumi offered).

And lastly; let us not kid ourselves. It's done because it's according to the classical anime trope, nothing more, nothing less. Even if Neko would have been in the place of Kazumi, the anime would STILL not have shown any real sex-scene. The MC would have backed off for yet another reason, then. (Such as sudden shyness, not understanding the hints given, or simply the fate of a phone ringing at the wrong moment, etc.) We all know that. If they did show us explicit scenes, they would get a H-rating, which isn't conductive to this kind of shounen-harem anime. If they show implicit scenes, they still would have broken the classical anime trope, with all the complaints that it entails (you se a lot of complaining of the ecchi-scenes already now, as it is). You'll note you have extremely few harem-anime where the main male character actually 'goes for it'. Even in pretty strong ecchi ones. It has nothing to do with the MC having a deep relational bond with one of the girls to which he wants to be faithful, or something of the sort.

In reality, however, IF such a harem situation occurred (unlikely on itself), the male character would almost certainly bang a few, if not all, of those girls.

I think Murakami Is just too nice too take advantage like that but I think he doses like all the witches, though i'd like ether a Harem or Kazumi ending


Nice? Take advantage? Maybe you missed it, but she was the requesting party, *wanted* to get laid, and literally tried everything she could to have sex.

What is nice about turning down a girl who is begging to have sex, undresses herself for you, and does everything she can to get you bang her? Since when is rejection nice? In fact, you see already that she thinks she's not 'appealing' enough for him, or has too small boobs. By his refusal, thus, he makes her more insecure and have less self-confidence. All by all, that doesn't seem to be 'too nice'.

There is little doubt, as it is portrayed in the anime, that Kazumi would be glad and happy if the MC would bang her. We can guess about her reasons, but still: she would be perfectly fine and happy about it. So, not giving her what she wants, and refusing to make her happy like that, isn't really all that 'nice'.

Sigh... Why must everytime someone in anime has a chance to smash they never do if they're offering might as well take it lmao. I wonder what they're going to do for these last 5 eps i don't want a sad ending but i feel like its going to be extra sad


I doubt it. The manga is still going and there are loads of good parts that are both happy and sad. I am just puzzled in the direction of the anime. I honestly don't know what the last episode will be about, and it will suck if they skip through a lot of the chapters.



Got that?

It does not suit this anime.

This is SO terribly balanced, fanservice and humour reached a new level of stupidity.
Well at least I enjoyed this episode a little. That fight was ok and much reminiscent of Elfenlied.

I found Kazumi's advances on Ryouta more hilarious than arousing tbh(not that it wasn't arousing at all). We all know that they can't show them getting it on or even skip to after the deed's anyway. Her trying to play with Kana's boobies was also hilarious.

Besides,it's not like Ryouta didn't show any interest be it now or in the hotspring scene in ep 4. I could basically see the guy thinking some on the lines of: "Damn it! These anime restrictions suck...Couldn't this be a VN? And why are you viewers complaining? I'm the one who has to resist here." :D

Also,Kazumi4president?

Dammit Murakami! I guess it was expected that nothing was going to happen but it still sucks. Kazumi was my favorite character since the moment she was introduced and hasn't lost her spot. I really like how blunt she is, she doesn't hold back.

Kazumi definitely likes him, but her main reason for wanting to do it so badly is probably because she wants to have no regrets if she dies. Either way hot scene and talk about self-control on Murakami's end :P

The scene where Kazumi was 'raping' Kana was hilarious, it will be funny if by the end of the series Kana's breasts are bigger.

The scene where Kotori fainted was great.

I can't wait to see what the scientist is up to.

This new witch is powerful, she can look into people's memories and change them :o

Taking the panties of first then one piece after another bit by bit. Boner achieved :P And even sleeping with him Hugging him from behind :3 Her reaction to making a weird noise after his knee touched her pussy was kawaii <3
How the hell did Ryouta resist that O_O Respect for his self control but at the same time!! WHY U NO TAP DAT ASS ?!
She really does like him though. It's pretty clear she's fallen totally for him <3

And Kazumi teasing Kana because of her boobs was so lol XD

Loved the Neko ownage :D The hero of justice to the rescue!! Destroying bullets and guns ^^ And Kotori too XD The officer was MINDFUCKED XDXD

Nice seeing Neko telling him that they're his harem and he should depend on them more :P

Seems like the Maddo scientist is enjoying this :D So it really was a Alien egg?

So that's Nanami? Her ability will be causing lots of trouble to the group.


So totally agree with all you said, sir.

Kazumi does things like that. I'm not really surprised if she likes Murakami cuz it's a harem.
The fight near the church was okay, I guess.

Looks like they are speeding up things. But it is all good as long as it didn't feel rushed.

Really love Kazumi. She is seriously in love with Murakami.

I wonder if they will finish the arc of the new girl next episode?

Huh, some guys actually appeared at the location where they where Ryouta and Kazumi where standing.

Ryouta's mind really is amazing and lol at Kazumi's proposal XD.

Two virgins having a showdown XD.

Those police officers sure got what they deserved, arresting Ryouta and all >.>

That's quite the getup Nanami was wearing lol.

Aha... so her eyes can look into memories and then erase them I guess, that's why she lifted her skirt, to attract the attention and eyes of those nearby.

very good episode
Kuroha appears to be stronger, but all the girls form a beautiful harem
mainly Kazumi and his perverted mind
besides Ryouta she also attacked Kana in episode
but in the end there was a new character, it seems that this will be the final opponent in the anime

I suspect that the sunglasses were for protection against Nanami's ability. He even said it, no?

Pretty good episode! Kazumi was cute during her seduction, especially since it ties into her character.

The fight scene wasn't bad either but they are totally dealing with the men in black. I wonder what the new girl is up to?

I really like the characters and the setting but I wish they would advance the plot a bit more. MC needs to ask Neko about the moles and get it over with.

For the people complaining about kazumi, her behavior actually makes sense. she could die at any moment so she's trying to explore exciting things and keep her spirits up. it's still mostly needless fan service, but it's acceptable in this case (though that particular scene did drag on a bit).

next episodes should be more interesting (and hopefully have more action), but with only a few left I fear that it's going to be rushed.

I'm not sure anymore. Kazumi is probably the most active in the situation in fulfilling her dreams? Do the others even have ambitions? :|

I dont see why everyone is so surprised with Ryouta, sure Kazumi is haaaawt and is throwing herself at him, but if he fancies Kuroneko which he obviously does, then ofcourse he wouldnt sleep with Kazumi. If he slept with Kazumi that would mean him and neko would never happen.

What do you mean 'it doesn't suit it'?

It followed exactly the manga. It IS how the manga is, aka: how it was meant to be. It doesn't make sense to complain and claim it doesn't suit it, when it actually IS like that.

Kazumi is going full out through Ryota XD, but can't handle this too long. Going alone is pretty tough, but at least everyone save him.

Haha I laughed when Kotori switch places with that chief officer being tied up in a tree XD.

Another witch detected, when is she going to do at the end...

Seriously, what's with Kazumi molesting a paralyzed girl?

But closing 2 eyes and covering my ears on that, Kazumi for life.
But lol at the sound of her.. well yes like it was some toy bought at a petshop and make it sound like a normal thing.

But nice episode, the show is getting more enjoyable as it is coming to its end, but well better than nothing.
I wonder what's the story behind the alien egg!
