Was sick of the gags aimed at 8-year-olds before this episode, now it's just gone past stupid. This show has dug it's own hole and buried itself alive.

I adore Tsukasa and Isla.
I love Michiru! :3
I hate Kazuki! I think that sums it up.

Seems like every episode of this show starts out more disappointing than the last and then somehow pulls itself back around, even if only by being self-aware at times (like Tsukasa admitting his own weakness).

I'm usually a sucker for this kind of plot, but honestly I'm not seeing chemistry between Tsukasa and Isla at all right now. Doubt it will happen, but I'm rooting for Michiru. Like others have said though, I'm just anticipating a deus ex machina to somehow keep Isla around. Not that I want her to die, cuz that's just mean, but I want the show to uphold the rules it's given us thus far, and Michiru deserves to have things go her way for once.

Interesting end. It seems everything is heading towards Tsukasa and Isla running away together.

But one has to hate the way they are telling things in anime. Showing is always better than telling. And sometimes, explaining is even worse. I wish they would go with simple facial expresion details with eye glances to actually tell how they are feeling. Sometimes, it's really counter-productive to make the character tell how he/she is feeling instead.

at first it looks like Michiru likes Tsukasa but I'm wrong I guess and why Tsukasa wants that robot, that is a robot you know!

"& I think the most suitable unexpected ending is Tsukasa will be dead and it will make Isla really sad before she is retrieved!"

The jury is still out whether Eru is tolerable or just plainly disgusting. She has her moments but other than that she's... no. Just no.

As much as I was in for Tsukasa x Isla in the beginning I find myself Tsukasa x Michiru to happen now .-.

Michiru <3
(this episode examples how to do fanservice properly, not joking)

I'm a little disappointed Michiru didn't see the dirty mag... I would have loved to see her reaction.

Ending their partnership... that ought to force Isla's hand (or at least that is probably the intent).

Same. It will probably happen by the time it's over, or perhaps implied.

With the dissolution of the partnership will Isla stop working? Maybe Kazuki is worried that something may happen now that Isla only have one month...

I wonder how it's okay to have romance with a colleague. Especially when the other one is android.

You can't be serious. No, no you aren't...It's a waste of time, the plane has taken off, why do you, Mr. Hayashi, you are worthless. What should be a irrational, temporary dishonest rejection because Isla is unfamiliar with the overwhelming feeling she had now becomes a reality, it was a little joke, if it is serious they had already been a couple without any confession at the end of episode 6, what happened in episode 7 is just a formality. And now we are back to square one. Why do they so afraid of starting a relationship? Why keep writing Rom-Com with no actual romance, and comedy? And stop writing like a 15-year-old, you are more than that Mr. Hayashi, I suppose.

You get the magazine wrong, merciless guy, look at Isla, Tsukasa is clearly someone with special interest.

Of course you are, Isla, of course you are.

No, the best solution is to pull their heads out of their asses because it's so stupid.

Yes, it's true. Tsukasa has no dick.

"I'll wait!, is one month long enough? or you need more time?"

Great shot composition right there. The animator sure knows the priority, no serious drama without emphasizing boobs and ass.

Finally we can see the tsudere feels guilty of letting the incident happened, now there's one less annoying character.

Wow, someone's dick grows back, and it's much more magnificent than before!

They can still be a couple, right? It only means they have less time together, or that bitch is going to send Isla or Tsusaka to somewhere else? And yes, more external obstacles instead of internal conflicts within the relationship, someone never grows up.

Thanks, A-san.

You always make the best comments.

urgh, kind of a boring episode. This series had a lot of potential and the first half was very good, but these last few episodes have felt more like a chore to watch. I looked forward to this every week during the first half, so it's quite a shame. The decision to devolve into an ordinary, generic slice of life romance was a bad one; it should have instead of focused on the work of their organization and the heartwrenching tragedies they create (like the first half of the series more-or-less did), making this more of a remedy show a la Mushishi or Death Parade while working the predictable romantic tragedy between Tsukasa and Isla as a subplot (which would have given it more impact anyway). There's also a lot of potential to expand on the universe in which Plastic Memories takes place, making it darker or more sinister -- considering the involvement of Steins;Gate's scenario writer, that's absolutely what I expected. Granted there's still a few episodes left so who knows what will happen, but looking down its current route it seems like this will remain more or less the same for the remaining duration of its run time.

I really hope the remaining episodes surprise me, though, because as I said, this anime has a lot of potential.

That was a lovely episode. It was quite sad how Michiru had to find out about Isla's remaining life so last minute though. Regardless, obligatory:

Funny episode in its drama, while there are an unfortunate reality, the atmosphere is pleasant enough with some truly comic moments. More and more curious to see how the story will end, although there have been some mistakes at the beginning of the series, which have a bit spoiled the story. The drawings have ups and downs in the quality, a shame given that the study Doga Kobo is one of my favorites.

Angel Beats influence is real.
Michiru is basially tsundere Yurippe. Their faces and impressions look identical and its just so obvious. I kinda liked Yurippe but Michiru gets on my nerves not a big fan of tsunderes here. Her tragic past also felt very Angel Beats like.
Isla is cuter than Kanade and I like her better but it still feels like I'm looking at the same character.
Tsukasa is pretty blatant as well. He is your typical nice guy.
as far as characters go it isn't very creative neither is the story which is your typical romantic comedy with some sci-fi drama-esque backgroud that doesnt matter (at least up to this point) but meh it's moderetaly enjoyable. I'd say this is slightly better than Angel Beats. 6.5/10 thus far.

Kazuki, stahp. You can't stand in the way of eternal love.

The awkward tension in the episode was heavy. Isla having her cute moments as always. Excellent episode.

Honestly I am not surprised at the comedy in this show. With the sad premise and situations the only way for most of the characters to avoid a serious depression is to try to be lighthearted and funny. I know I would act the same way if I wanted to keep my sanity.

Isla.... LOL I thought she rejected him because she don't want to hurt him, but the reveal was too funny.

The opening video with Isla blushing and dere dere. I love how the OP keeps on evolving.

Isla with bunny suit lol.

Yup Michiru was born to suffer. Damn it I feel bad for her, but Isla is too cute so I'm on Isla ship.

That partnership dissolve, NOOOO

Although I liked this episode a lot more than previous ones it still felt weak, it takes like 20 seconds to switch from sad to angry to happy and the execution doesn't make it feel natural to me.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Yea, make Tsukasa take the easy way out instead of sticking through the end like couples do. I give Tsukasa props for wanting to be with Isla until her very last moments.

Lol at bunny suit Isla. Eru's got good taste on appeal.

For me, to become lovers until the end will be the best choice just like "a walk to remember" than not doing anything and afraid to hurt each other, duh.

I always had the feeling that Michiru likes Tsukasa and I see other's think so as well. But it's so subtle that I'm not sure if she really does or I'm seeing something that isn't there. Maybe Michiru just really wants to be in a romantic relationship and that's why she takes so much interest in Isla and Tsukasa's relationship.

1. That nude magazine... I approve.
2. Eru´s playboy-bunny outfit... I so approve.
3. Kazuki... I don´t approve.
4. Did Isla really move in with Michiru & Zack next door? When she already were alone in her own appartment again since Tsukasa moved out for the time being... They could just have moved in at her place instead if that had to be the case.

This love-case just got more and more messed up.

Would´ve quit my job there effective immediatelly in his shoes, I´m feeling Kazuki isn´t the one to talk about office-romance in the first place (and I bet that will be proven right in the next episode) nor doesn´t have the authority to make that call. but if she feels that she can make such a rash out of the blue decision for us without our full consent, then two can play it that game. Knowing my value in the crew I would´ve played that strongest card of mine, fight fire with fire! A pure act of emotion move sure. But if I have promised to always be her partner to the end, at least I will feel obliged to complete my part of the promise, and I would, using the toughest means, try to make Kazuki understand the importance of honoring a promise made, and hopefully Isla hear me too from the side.

I can understand what Kazuki comes from... But due the circumstances, I wouldn´t have non of it without having stood my ground first.

Oh my damn, she actually turned him down, even though she has a thing for him.. Well, the ending was unexpected, seems like that's the beginning of the end.

Eru is just sooo cute and attractive. Probably my favorite character from this anime.
