THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Finally, some actual train action this episode. I still think Aoi is a bit of an airhead when she is with Naoto...

I think the two bonded a bit more than I had thought? Then again, it doesn't escape the cliches and trope of the 'staying together half naked' trope. Still, this was probably the episode that at least focused on the premise the most. I mean, actual train action!

aoi thinks she's swat or sumthin like that. Also, since he got Haruka standing up for him and Aoi also interested in him, could we be one step closer to love triangle?

was wondering about that myself. I figure the translator got the subs wrong and sakurai actually said "get a firm grip on my ass" rather than "crouch down in front of me"

Train got blocked by Sakurai's boobs. Derailment!

Koumi will take the spot next week. I'm rooting for Sakurai x Takayama tho.

Well, the PLOTs are actually pretty nice haha but yeah I agree.

Anyways, good episode focusing on just Sakurai and Takayama. Glad to see they got a bit closer with each other too. And lmao at that model train getting derail by her plot and that crouching? ass grab.

Sakurai is best girl.

A nice episode, I feel like I learn more trains after each episode.
Aoi x Takayoma want some of that. Takayama likes thighs.

We got an episode dedicated to sakurai and the main guy. That sure was intense, chasing the bomber. Nice episode nonetheless.

It was a good episode.

Sakurai and Takayama are tailing and chasing the criminal on their adventure. I got to love all those moments they spent together.

Takayama saw those pantsu moments of Sakurai, saw her thigh and felt her boob touching his back. He is one lucky guy.

Sakurai and Takayama saved the train through....good job.

Such flawed logical decisions! Yet I somehow enjoyed that. Sakurai is cool. And next time it's Haruka's turn it seems.

Kinda annoys me when Sakurai thinks she's the police or something. If she wanted to join them, she could have, but as long as she's working in public safety she should do her job right. Still, she seems to be learning this and she hasn't caused too much damage yet, so I guess it's all good.

There was either a drop in quality or a new animation staff. It looked so different from previous episodes. It was ok overall like most of the plot driven episodes.

Yes. It's an empty world. Almost no background characters, even in major railroad stations.

Indeed. I'm disapointed of the direction this anime is heading to. Fanservice won't save it....

Dear God, the QUALITY animation in this episode was just unbearable. I know the studio doing this is new and all, but this is just pathetic.
However, the sexual tension between Aoi and Takayama is amusing. Will continue to watch for the TRAINS.

So we had Aoi and Takayama moments? Well, I kinda like Haruka more.

And also, I hope that Iwaizumi has more lines and exposure. He seems to be a supporting character than a main character.

Haruka showing some jealousy at Aoi getting all the attention from Takayama. Though the preview shows Harukas about to put some moves on him next episode.

Sakurai is literally the only reason this anime is still worth watching but even she can't erase the presence of that blabbering idiot called Takayama. This thing is getting more and more boring each episode and it seems the next one will focus on the driving plot of this anime (Haruka's boobs).

I'm dropping the rating to 4 for now.

I expected this to be a harem where the biggest challenge for the male lead would be to get the tsundere fall for him, but apparently I was wrong since it happened already. I wonder whether they can keep this interesting... Takayama is so useless it hurts...

Action was nice, could have watched more of that.

Thread Cleaned.
Singe phrase responses are removed. Please expound your thoughts.

On a different note, this episode sucks real hard animation quality wise. It was truly horrible that watching this in 4k won't make any difference. The ecchi can't save this series.
Anyway.. you can't simply just take off your underwear because it got wet. Such a lame excuse.

That was some interesting development and bonding there.

As for the fanservice, I can tolerate it, as it is really tame when compared to Qwaser (if im not mistaken done by this studio too?) and sometimes fun.

Sakurai was good this time, but I still prefer Koumi D:

Sakurai is too good for that boring Takayama. But then again, in anime, it's the boring ones who always get the girls.

More Sakurai is always good but then Takayama's presence negated all her awesomeness >__>

Sakurai is, remains and always will be Worst Girl. I seriously have no idea what the hell people see in these neurotic, violent tsundere bitches.

Despite featuring my least favorite character in the entire series, not a bad episode. I hate Sakurai, but even I have to admit she's pretty damn hot. If she wants to be a cop so damn badly why doesn't she just join the police force instead of stinking up the place? Then she can be as abusive a cunt as she wants to be.

Iida still manages to be even hotter than the designated fanservice girl, Haruka. Speaking of, I want another Haruka-centric episode. I've had more than enough Sakurai for now.

I can't help but think there was some serious QUALITY in this episode. Everyone's face seemed off-model in a lot of the shots.

Ordinarily I would say "to each his own," but a good portion of this episode was devoted to providing specific, concrete evidence that the MC is useful. If you noticed this and still think he is useless, that begs the question: why?

And if you didn't pick up on that then I think you need to watch the episode again.

I am pretty certain that a police brutality lawsuit or something similar lies in Sakurai's future if she remains in any sort of security or law enforcement job. It seems like she is constantly itching to fight criminals and strikes me as the kind of person who would eagerly use excessive force in arresting someone. The irony of this is that while she hates criminals she is essentially a criminal waiting to happen.

And in case there was any doubt - no, I don't like her either.

What the hell is wrong with you? Sakurai is definitely the best girl here. She was violent to Takayama because she wants him to man up and be stronger.

Also because she can't always save Takayama's ass if he was caught in trouble that's why she trains him that way. And Sakurai always saves Takayama, Is it wasn't enough to call her the best girl here?

Lastly they are Security Officers so Sakurai's skills and attitude was definitely suitable for her.
This is an Action Type/Theme Anime, so there's nothing wrong with Sakurai being violent sometimes and she's just cool...
And she wasn't like Chitoge (Shitoge of Nisekoi) because this anime was not just an a Romance-Comedy anime like Nisekoi.

You wouldn't say this if you really know Takayama.
