Really liked this episode. The part with Yu and Nao on the cliff was great; that one song from the end of episode 1 (the dream) was really good for this scene

This episode is better than the previous one. It has more to offer in terms of character development. The dialogues are also better and the scene where Nao gets bullied made my day. I hate her so much for meddling on others all the time. It's time her victims get some justice.

However, to sum it up, this episode is still power of the week. I would prefer if they delved into these powers a bit more and try to explain the mechanism and the flaws instead of just giving us bare bone every time (he can fly, that's it?). Give the anime a bit of a Shounen feel. Make the audience more engaged and thinking.

Some people might laugh at the jokes, but I am a fan of Angel Beats. I have been there, seen that. Charlotte seems to copy and paste the formula, but the characters are less convincing that we think they really mean it. Not funny anymore.

Verdict is 3/5.

I see a death flag going on among the discussion. Obviously a reference to Clanaad After Story. If she does die, I would be glad. Someone has to do it, eventually.

Decent episode, I have a feeling Yu's sister might die
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.

Boiiiiiiii that guy with glasses is buffed as fuk. Makes sense tho.

At least this week we got some hints here and there for the future, even tho everything else was the same.

The music in this show is really great.

My thoughts about this Episode:

Okay this is another great episode, I know it's just some normal stuff they usually do.
But this is needed to build up something then turn it slowly into a deeper (misery) pace.
I don't know what they are cooking up, But I guess in the next episode, I need to be prepared for what to come.
But I still hope all of them will be alive till the end. But it's a Key Anime, So maybe Yes or maybe not.
Anyway I still plan to wait for the next week's episode!

Ah, yes, please kill of the imouto. Her loud voice was annoying from the start.

Not much happened in this ep besides the death flag though.
Atleast we get to see some more Nao getting a beating which is always welcome.

Even the worst anime with the lowest budget manage to give their characters some casual clothes. Is it asking to much to not go camping in your school uniform?

No, no... Please P.A. Works! Not another Imouto! ;(

What a surprise!

Little develop Yu and Nao :)
Can't wait to see more :D

I really can't stop thinking about other P.A Works series while watching this anime xD
Yu reaction when he heard music was just like Iwasawa Masami from Angel Beats!

I'm telling you my niece was even terrible (literally). So I know where to put my temper.
And she wasn't annoying. She just keeps doing it because nobody said to her to stop.
You know she's just a kid. And don't blame her (the character) for that! We are not a Japanese by the way.

You know she is just a character and its fine to find her annoying and no I haven't seen any children talking in third person, kill the imouto.

Another power of the week episode which isn't ideal, but there seems to be lots of little hints hidden in there of something bigger happening, not least the thing with th security guards and Ayu's random cold. The hints in the OP seem a tad more obvious now as well.

From what Jun Maeda said in interviews before this started, next episode should be either when the pace picks up or the last episode of the current pattern (I can't remember which one, but hopefully the former).

They're going to do something with the imouto, how unexpected..

But seriously, the episode was okay. It was better than last week, so we got that. Isn't episode 6 like the moment of truth for the show? Since everyone's been saying "wait until episode 6!".

What's wrong with the voicing? It's just fine that sounded like a normal little girl.
Or you wanted a husky voice for a kid character? maybe you prefer a voice like Misaki Kuno had? (used in some terrible characters)
Which is seriously annoying by the way. And yes the pizza sauce gag was getting old.
That's why they stop it this episode. And come on it's her only screen time.

Imouto isn't gonna die yet. the main focus of the plot (from what I've seen so far) will be her ability.

I'd just prefer if she didn't sound so obnoxious all the time. Like tone the voice down (not so loud all the time) and talk a bit slower

She definitely will. So for the meantime just deal with it. And she just had a minute or two of screen time every episode after all. So what's the big deal?

Decent enough episode, finally. So Otosaka CAN actually actually control powers of others, hm? Interesting developement.

Heh, and I liked how MC didn't help Nao in the beginning, serves her right.

Though we got another student of the week, jeez. And it's very convenient he appeared in the woods for them to have a trip. It's like Nao knows and wants to prepare him for the truth. Things are happing way too conveniently. It's like in Little Busters where K. was controlling the world and that also includes arrival of the flying student. There is this strong "Matrix" feeling to this "fake" world. And others may be only diving into it. But what if this world is more interesting than reality? Could it be Nao is mastermind setting up scenes to make him grow? She even gave him Zhiend (the end) song. Now I have the feeling that in the end, they will try to ephasize that the road to the goal is more important than goal itself. But sadly, it hasn't been so interesting so far.

I dunno what to make of his sister's fever but it seems like red herring. The important thing here is the change in food I guess.

Wonder why they were bulling Nao.
I think that the fever could be related to awakening her power. Would find pretty stupid to kill her from a cold.

But I don't get why Nao said to that guy not to use his powers anymore, while she and other student council members use their powers all the time.

Yeah. thanks for pointing out. And yes those security guards are strongly related on what Ayumi says.
So I'm guessing they are staffs from a lab that experiments on the teenagers with special abilities.

Great episode, again it seems that with a simple plan things resolved with another user of power, and the protagonist begins to involve more colleagues of the council, this camp served to decrease the distance between them

In addition, I feel that things are starting to get more serious, the characters begin to show a little more personal dramas and some mysteries are involved in the development of the plot, I look forward to continue watching ..

Those chicks who put the beat down on her are officially my favorite characters of the anime, especially since the formerly interesting main character turned not only typical main character, but an annoying brat talking about vegetables.

Another horrible episode of Charlotte.. What a snorefest. The jokes are still unfunny and the characters are still annoying.

Prediction: The lil sis is going to die and there's going to be lots of melodrama (which, undoubtedly, I'm going to laugh at). 1/5
