THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Lol so Yusa transferred to Yu's school. Funny. The guys just loved her introduction. I found her presence in the class to be silly tbh.


I still prefer her other personality.

The baseball game was kinda fun, seems like some of the guys are cheating with their abilities.. Can't take Yusa seriously though with her silly poses and chantings though.

Well first half of the series will like be this. Since all Key anime first half their series always like this slow, then later on where it comes in. For example this episode is a same thing as Angel Beats episode 4 both had baseball games going on both of them. So be patient just enjoy the anime. Not all episode in any anime are good.

Someone with your attitude should drop watching anime all together.


Also
Misa's cute personality is just too much to handle (✿◠‿◠)

And here is the baseball match

Good God! The amount of Angel Beats! vibes I'm getting from this are above 9000!
Well, it's to be expected anyway, I mean it's KEY we're talking about here. All of their series consist of atleast one trait which are similar to it's other created projects.
Overall, it was a fun episode with a not-so-honest sports game involved. I'd rate it 4/5.
Being 'selfish' feels good. But remember this, it will always cause 'pain' to those around you...

Obligatory Key Baseball Episode is Obligatory.

Not as good as Angel Beat's nor as funny as Clannad After Story's.

Megane kid is... alright I guess. I mean, he did get a chuckle or two out of me. Not as good as based Sunohara.

Right now, Tomori Onii-chan subplot and MC are keeping me from dropping this.

Hopefully, this 'weekly power' thing dies down a bit. I had no idea what the point of this episode was other than give new girl screen time so we can feel sad for her in her possibly Key-style death. (Like what they did to GDM girl)

Jun Maeda sure likes his baseball.

Felt like a waste of time honestly, did enjoy it though to some extent. But it's the worst episode so far.

And yeah, looks like it to me that Yuu can't possess other people with abilities.

The comedy in this episode was too much xDDD My goodness, literally everyone in the school went nuts when Yusa arrived LOLOLOLOLOL

The baseball game was pretty fun and I liked that the pitcher guy did all of this for his friend, still cheating is cheating and it wouldn't have lasted forever anyway, so Nao's advice was pretty spot on

Not as great as last week's episode but this was still pretty good nonetheless, the character interactions were on point yet again.....I wonder what happened when Yuu tried to take over that guy's body though O.o Maybe he can't possess persons with abilities?

Yusa's "cute" personality feels so forced, it's almost annoying, just like Yuu's imouto. Delinquent Misa side is much better. Megane-kun's reactions to each of her actions were pretty funny, I guess.

Although predictable, the Baseball game wasn't too bad. Hopefully they'll move onto the main plot already instead of repeating "Power of the Week" pattern.

Takajou's sacrifice and using an upside down image as proof was hilarious. Yuu's ability in the match was fun to see too.

So Yusa's role is like that for now at least.

Looking for actual impacting things to happen some time soon.

A lot of baseball terms used and even a Ichiro Suzuki reference. This was probably the weakest episode. This show feels episodic and repetitive right now.

SUCH A TURNOFF

I'm trying to jinx anything, but I think Nao and Yu are getting ever so closer.

Typical baseball episode, fantastic. That being said the inclusion of Yusa in the group is such a nice breath of fresh air. Both her and the violent sister are a nice contrast to the stoic Nao

Seriously.... the only thing of note in the entire episode was the experiment that Nao asked Yuu to try out on the pitcher. Other than that, I'm sorry to say that none of the jokes really registered, and again Imouto's special sauce joke is getting staler and staler each episode.

Utterly disappointed at the directionless, repetitive episodic story. A third of the show gone and no development at all.

Loved the episode. They will probably stop doing this episodic thing soon enough, but I'm really loving it so it's a bit sad.

Damn Joujirou's idol love is really a turn off... not really it's actually pretty amusing to watch him, really love this character.

Like other people are saying, this repetitive "ability of the week" thing is getting kind of old. Hopefully the actual plot picks up soon.

Also, I'm pretty sure Yuu constantly eating that pizza sauce should destroy his digestive system lol
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Yu should just tell his imouto to friggin not put that sauce <_< Getting annoying.

The refs reaction to Yu falling when he used his ability was lol

Sonic's "safe" was hilarious with his face getting brutally censored XD

Really liking Nao more and more <3 I wonder what the experiment was about?

Misa's awesome too. She's friggin HAWT in the ED :L I wonder if that dog will be introduced later?

I am convinced that the experiment had nothing to do with Yuu not being able to possess other people with abilities, since he did possess that captain of the archery club in episode 2. Don't really know what it could be about besides that. Maybe there was another person with the ability to negate Yuu's ability?

As for the episode itself, it was 3.5/5. The only thing that made it slightly above "meh" was Misa's antics. Yusa is pretty annoying.

And there's the obligatory baseball episode. Not that it was bad or anything (it was actually quite fun) but I'm not sure if it was needed. I'm sure all this slow build-up with power of the week stories will pay off later on anyway, so I can live with it for now. Yusa, however, is very annoying and is really threatening to bring the whole show down, particularly with her stupid spells. Misa is a far more interesting element though, so she does have some use.

I wonder what that "experiment" was about? That could lead somewhere interesting.

Good episode. I wonder why Nao wanted Yuu do that for? Usually most anime first few episode the plot is slow until later on.

Gosh, the jokes feel so forced. I'm tired of seeing the pizza sauce scenes, and glasses guy obsessive and hyperactive attitude. Yusa's kawaii side is annoying.
This episode feels wasted except for one particular moment.

Charlotte definitely has that "Key" humor in it. I love it.

And to those complaining about the slow pace: it's Key. I'm sure the last few episodes will be story stunning. Just look at Clannad, Air, or Kanon. Hell, even Angel Beats.

I'm really enjoying Charlotte so far but I feel like it's missing something. I would love to see the characters get challenged more, so far it's felt to easy. Looking forward to seeing how the plot thickens and am expecting a more serious tone coming up.

The token baseball episode is out of the way now lol. I like the characters so far but agree that it's hard to take Yusa seriously sometimes.

The pace is a bit slow but people need to relax. I agree that the story will definitely pick up soon.

You really want that shitty kind of character in this show? 0.0
First episode was bad, especially because of male MC. After first episode, this anime is very enjoyable.


Btw, I'm the only one who really likes Nao?

My thoughts for this episode:

Another fantastic episode overall as always!
Now I can't wait for the next week's episode!
And to those who hates this just drop it already!
Haters always gonna hate.

Every scene that Joujirou uses his ability are great, pretty much the highlights of this show, which might actually be a bad thing.. Quite episodic so far but I am enjoying it a lot nonetheless, just hoping for some plot in the future before it is too late.

Another nosebleed from Ayumi, hah.

Wonder about that small experiment, to me it looked like his ability worked although something was a bit different. Might turn into something interesting! Also seemed like the telekinesis ability didn't come with any flaw, unlike all the other abilities :0

baseball match was the worst i've ever seen in an anime. 8/10 episode because of Yusarin/misa definitely my favorite character in Charlotte. Tomori also had very cool moments in this episodes where she showed the camera to referee for example. Looking forward to the next episode

Ohhhh, baseball! Even more, cheating baseball!
I guess you must indeed be a good catcher to catch a cheated ball.

Yusarin is funny, with idolesque dance. Takajou sacrifice will not be forgotten too.

I wonder what Nao meant by continuing to watch over that pitcher. Maybe she's interested into what happen when Yuu possess someone who already have a power?

Someone was complaining about violent girls last week but honestly i would have preferred it if the girls beat the crap out of Takajou every time he went into his obsessive Yusa fan mode since it's really annoying.
Speaking of which Yusa herself is pretty annoying as well tho not as bad as Takajou.
The moments in class weren't my thing either, character worship isn't my thing at all.

Besides that the episode was ok.

To everyone saying that they don't like the power of the week thing and it is too repetitive: this is how key's animes are, it's really repetitive in the first half of the anime and then drops a bomb in the second. I really recommend that you don't drop this anime yet, at least wait until the second half.

This episode felt like a waste of time. Ugh did they really have to add a baseball episode with such a short anime...
All the other episodes were great.
