Yamagishi is pathetic. She thinks it's OK to rely on others to help her because she's so damn stupid?! Is that supposed to be cute? Who wrote this character? OMG! I want to see a 15 year time skip. If she's not married to Kiryuu, she'll probably be married to a "reliable" man that beats her. But it'll be OK because he's reliable and takes care of her. *rolls eyes*

Heeeh, Shougo blushed :3 Nice one, Saki ahahaha.
Fuck, so Fujimiya really did like Hajime back then, huh. Hajime is not that bad, but he is still kinda annoying!!
Poor Hase :/

Well, thats really interesting that someone can have different viewpoint about all of this, and while I can easily see where you are coming from with that reasoning, I just can't personally agree with all what you've said here. Reason being I think there is much more depth to this whole situation in terms of feelings and emotions so while you take some of the that into consideration, I think you really missing out on other points.
Firstly as u said that he forced himself into Fujimiya's life without any reason, and it may look like that on the surface, I mean u could totally interpret this as an utter selfishness, but thats just a single part of it. Love in itself doesn't need a reason, for me thats the beauty of this situation if u look at what follows.
Hase accepted Karoi the person she was despite her cold attitude at first, and look, while u wrote that the most people would turn around and thought of her as a coldhearted mean shut-in, just because he did not, whole plot could develop the way it did. I mean that in totally positive sense. He really helped her, u definitely can't deny that, she gained real motivation to keep on living and trying to remember things. Because she really felt happiness that otherwise would not be accessible, she made friends, she fell in love. That in itself is more than enough to 'justify' the selfishness(otherwise called love :)) that Hase as u wrote 'forced' on her.
About the other situation u mentioned as a proof of your conviction that Hase-kun is not really being good guy here. (That one really caught my eye, and made me wrote this) When Kaori memories got totally reset after her confrontation with Hajime. That was really unprecedented situation and one really hard to foresee(from technical point of view it was more than sure, that some kind of hard drama will kick at the end, but I am talking from more of a character point of view, as I am going to justify his actions in a second) So what happened after Kaori woke up, was a really hard blow for Hase, after all he did for her and after so much character development happened(so much for a innocent slice of life anime as it is) So it was only natural reaction for him to feel very sorrowful, frustrated and letdown at the same time. We are talking here about spontaneous emotional reaction, u can't really expect very much rational and mulled over approach. Especially with Hase being the character he is. So in that single inescapable moment when all that feelings got to him, it was the only irrational and sort of last (false) hope reaction that he reached for her - just as u are defending yourself with last resort where no other logic works because u really don't want to feel that terrible sadness being rejected afterwards, especially from the person u care for the most. For me that was one of the most touching moments in the series, essence of drama.
As for the mother I can agree with you mostly, and thats really good rational point u made there. I kind of thought it the same way. Though for me thats the part when kinda suspension of disbelief kicks in, and I can close an eye to this one(Sorry if that sound too ignorant or something).
On Hajime I agree with what you are saying, for me he is just different type of character, I can totally see his actions being reasonable according to the knowledge of situation that he has. That said, I am more of a emotional viewer, so I get easily flustered, and I kinda feel for Hase-kun in that respect. Honestly, I really like this show, that lighthearted(but can hit hard at times) drama concept works very well for me, as I tend to go with feelings and suspension of disbelief more often. Really interesting to read different opinion though, thanks for that as it got me thinking :>

I have to agree with what you wrote to straggy because if you didn't I for sure would have. Sometimes I don't get why people hate on Hase so much, I mean sure he's different from the other characters in anime, but to be honest, he's my favorite character in the whole series. While I indeed admit that Hase comes off as a little to strong, you have to understand that he's a human being as well. For example, on episode 4 when he told Kaori to stop talking about Shougo was totally understandable, any person would be annoyed if the person they like starts talking about their best friend or some other person, even regarding the circumstances Kaori is in with her memory.

Kujo is probably a nice guy who felt betrayed after Fujimiya had forgotten about him from the trauma. That would be my guess so far.

Kujo should just go for Kaori since Hase is too wimpy to even accept his own feelings... grow a pair fucking bastard. I'm not saying he should tell everyone about his true feelings but at least don't deny it when it''s too fucking obvious. Shougo X Saki all the way!

I want the innocent angelic Kaori back.

Honestly, not sure what to think of Kujo. He seems like he cares somewhat, but then he just tells Hase that he's just pretending. Those 6th grade girls who are now grown up, scums. Bullying Kaori

Saki's blunt conversation with Shogo, hilarious yet sweet. If Kaori x Hase doesn't happen then I'd be happy with a Saki x Shogo pair up. She also has that innocent aura that makes her just as sweet as Kaori.

Despite how bitter that Kujo guy was, I can't help but think there is some truth in what he said (although I don't want that to be true :P)
Sad that Hase may have to start all over again(if she never recalls it)..Hope it dosen't come to that.

I'm glad we finally got some more information about what happened to Fujimiya that caused all this memory loss confusion in the first place! I have been looking forward to this.

Shogo and Saki... I find Saki's level of forgetfulness to be really over the top, but I like seeing Shogo get all blushy and looking happy. Can't wait to see what happens with them!
