Nao, it's obvious he did it for you, not for your brother.

The song was beautiful. Her voice is awesome.
The mix and match of drama and comedy is a bit awkward though.
Did I just saw little imouto Ayumi in the preview ? My god !

The girl with the red hair reminded me of the girl that disappeared after singing a song in angel beats ep. 3.

They have the same VA, no wonder.

So what did those 2 guys wanted with yuu when he was in despair? The guys waiting outside for him?

Her English wasn't thát bad. It's pretty good for a Japanese person.
Anyway. Nice episode I guess. Nothing special. I did like the new character. I'm guessing she has some kind of power too, but that might be ontopic in a later episode.

I wonder what the concert will be like!

Sawashiro's character seems very interesting, more so than the current group.
Nice Engrishes! You can do it! Once me there you!
Both joujirou lunch & the MV were trying hard to make Yuu feel better. Not sure if Yuu's recovered but he seems quite changed & considerate this episode. The MV meaning was positive, but camera/editing were amateurish with awful off-pitch recording, probably intentionally. Just heard the full 5 min version on radio, vocal quality was very pleasant and the rhythm was nice and campy with the Engrish. Feels completely different and worth listening.
Jesus, Sala's unaccompanied vocal was beautiful.

annnnnnd back to everyday school life hi-jinks after that masterful previous episode. It was good though, and I like Sala a lot.

Miyuki Sawashiro, marry me.

Do I have low standards? I thought this was a great episode, mainly for the miracle scene as well the very last scene with the main guy walking under the stars. It's a shame this show keeps on squeezing in unnecessary comedy scenes.

recommend me anything!

Strangely I found the scene with Sara and Nao's brother to be more emotional than anything from the whole Ayumi situation. I wonder if Sara had a power once and was referring to that when she talked about becoming blind and atoning for her sins. I get the feeling what she said was important so I'll keep a mental note.

Now that all episodes are here I am back to watch the rest of the series.

I was really worried at the start of the episode but the second part was simply great.

By now, the comedy has become horribly placed and should have been dropped entirely. It jars the narrative and is not needed. A perfect example was the reaction of his male classmates when Yuu returned to school and Yusa welcomed him very warmly. They were immediately super jealous...surely they know that he lost his little sister recently, their reaction is completely off-kilter. People are often awkward around the recently bereaved but they already act like buffons...unless they are utter idiots or jerks, that is.

I wish the singing had produced no effect at all...perhaps I am being cynical, I was never big on the power of miracles (chalk it down to Utena, if you will) but the song was very beautiful, Engrish aside.

As for Yuu showing such concern for Nao's brother, I do not think that is all that strange. He was clearly very affected when he first met him so he already cared for him, at least on some level. The whole thing felt more as delayed reaction on Yuu's part as he realizes that he has been changed for the better.

With that said, he became functional way, way too easily. I would rather the rest of the anime focused on getting Yuu back on his feet as opposed to his being kinda sad but very able of going through daily life after having reached rock bottom.

Quite interesting development, I sure liked the appearance of the lead singer of that band and I do wonder what influence it will have further down the line! Let's see what's next.

Funny episode, quite pleasant although they esagerto a bit with the gags during the narration, but its purpose was obvious from the outset. Maybe a little too fast and forced some events, but they are not disappointed. Very beautiful scenery and the OST, drawings and animations as discrete quality. The characters begin to like it a lot, even the secondary ones.

This series really took a 180 degree turn. For the better or the worse. The comedy just feels off, they really should have removed it by now.

Not a very interesting episode either. I feel unsatisfied that they seem to just solve problems by the snap of a finger.

That was a step down from the last two episodes. Bad first half. Good second half.

I do not like Yusarin and Takajou. The comedy they bring really drags the show down.

Sala helped Yuu realize that Nao is important to him.
Shit, that only means there will be more impact to Yuu when she's gone!
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

After what happened in ep 6 this anime is just getting boring...
I really hope they make some progress in those final eps.

Sara is absolutely gorgeous! I love her. She would fit Yuu better than Nao.
I was so happy that Kazuki was able to calm down a little and remember his little sister. <3
Great episode!

tbh I felt really awkward watching this episode with the usual humour and stuff after what happened in the last episode.
I mean, sure - Yuu's aware of the fact that his sister is gone (-> the scene with his phone), but it still feels wrong to swing from comedy-ish to drama and back ...

Hey, no joking: I also had to look up what "post-rock" is. Had no idea about this music genre. ^^

Episode was again touching. I'm starting to really like the way Charlotte is made. ;)

Nao was with them (Yuu and Sala). She used her inivisibility power on Yuu, and Sala can't see her because she's blind. Hence the thank-call of Nao on last minute.

So Yuu wants to apologize to Yumi when he sees her again? 3rd times the charm? Will things go right this time?

Miyuki voice + hot character = Win and fap.

Most USELESS episode. I do not mean it is a bad one, it is in fact really good.

However, if you are familiar to the anime you should recognize this time line:

Recognization of a power in Yu's home --> Ayumi's death --> Kazuki Tomori regain consciousness --> Time-leap to SAVE Ayumi!

Recognization of a power in Yu's home --> Ayumi saved by Yu --> Furuki being threatened --> Discovery of looting abilities --> ...

The fact that Kazuki Tomori regain consciousness had been cancelle due to time- looping!
Yu is so absent minded! Yu sure saved Ayumi but put Kazuki Tomori back to his unconsciousness and even caused Kumagami's death! Kazuki Tomori is not saved in the end and Nao Tomori is not going to thank Yu. More importantly, Yu missed the golden opportunity to bring Sala Shane to meet Kazuki Tomori!

Kazuki Tomori may not gain his chance to regain consciousness till his death. :(

are 13 + 1 ova

Ehh you know what I mean, 12 or 13, there is no difference.

I like this anime as I like every Key's production. It has that specific vibe which causes that I can't wait for next episode. Charlotte is not something which I rate 10/10 (for now), but it IS something different than usual anime. This is the reason why I like it that much.

Might me for some and I have to agree it wasnt enough in AB but so far, I didnt felt that the mood changed too fast at all, this episode was just great, the mood felt right, and Sala, I bet she had superpowers before, and in the end when she was to lose them, she made an decision and lost her sight, probably in change to keep them or something...

Really good episode, the part with the english singing was beautiful. Nao x Yuu shipping intensifies...

And that insert song at the start reminded me a lot of K-on!

The shipping is slowly making some steady progress, it feels natural too, Nao being Nao, cant wait for the date on the next episode!!

So, did Yuu just snap out of depression in a day or what? He's sad, but... yeah. It's not the same thing.

The ending was nice. Eh, even if it was a miracle. Not a fan of those, but I was hoping for a bit of resolution for Nao's bro.

I think there may be a continuity error in the dub, Yuu said his sister has only died a few days ago, I'm pretty sure it's been longer.

That was so seeet! Wonder if she has kind of power. Or has something to do with him since he always feels nostalgic with her music. Getting really exciting!

I fell like all the episodes try to show you something more than continue with a story. Like this one.

From Ep 7, this series just got interesting. Now this episode seems to be about the redemption of Otosaka. The tragic loss of his beloved sister has shocked him to an awakening, and the people who were there to guide him at just the right time, saved him from completely losing his humanity.
I had low expectations for this series, but it seems to have just gotten momentum now. I hope it continues to be interesting.

This episode was very nice :) but i am starting to think that we won't get answers to every question in this anime or it will all connect in the last eps.
Then again it seems like a slice of life anime with happy ending this time?

I hate it when anime/manga that I enjoyed ends, especially when there could be much longer plot and when I love main heroine :P
