I thought this guy was a delinquent at first but he actually seems kinda chill and cool:

"Ria-juu", meaning "living the (normal) life substantially..., danshi is Shimazaki-san? I don't listen to his voice that often, but that's a first of this kind from him.

This guy's priorities changed in a matter of seconds. From mixer > Psychology lecture/report to sleeping > mixer > lecture.

You gotta wonder what exactly this weird person he's talking to said in reply that he decided to put the mixer and lecture aside to offer to sleep together.

Okay his face/hair totally got me. But I wasn't liking this loving to go to mixers crap---but he did say he wouldn't go because I wasn't going so I guess I'll give him that :p He's actually in my age range too (plus he's sorta right, I am weird (as in different!) because I'd rather stay home and watch anime then go out partying lol)

I think he's the winner, but still some episodes left so unless someone else comes he's 1st place :3

Nobunaga Shimazaki? Seriously HE voiced this guy? All throughout the episode I was like, 'I know this voice, I KNOW it, but why can't I remember who it is?' and then it hit me. Ahhhh. This episode was pretty cute.

P.S Can you just imagine Haru from Free! saying this? :P

This episode started on those food trays and I was instantly like "am I in prison?". Then I saw this ginger haired freak and I was certain that I definitely was. God, what a creep. Trying to get me to go to mixers with him is one thing, but watching me sleep and then asking me to sleep by him in a secluded area of the grass? Bitch no. His ass gotta be some sort molester doing shit like this.

Also not proper dating material because he's doing a useless college course AND he never goes to his lectures/does his papers. Your ass ain't worth shit if you can't pay for my lifestyle.

Don't tell me I was the only one freaked out in the beginning. There was no sound. It's a cafeteria, put some mumbling in the background! I thought we were playing a deaf person or something. But no. Opening stated. And later, the dude started talking. But still, no other sounds.
Now I think it was like that from the first episode, I mean, the no background sounds/music part, but I didn't notice it until now.
I did not like that dude. Just leave me alone please. I don't want to go anywhere with you. I definitely don't want to sleep together anywhere.
I hope for a one decent episode before the anime ends.

I liked the way they designed this character, I don't really know why but I like the look the best so far.

The guy in this episode is kinda hot and he's cool even though I think that was a bit too friendly since it looks like a first real convo, still that closing line was interesting xD

I think I like this one... Though the end was a little bit creepy.

Is it just me or did the character design improve? Maybe it just worked for this danshi.

I still jump when the characters suddenly talk after all that silence lmao please give me background sounds at least. This character was a hottie although he was definitely weird.

I didn't even recognize Shimazaki's voice at first.

No way I'd skip class with him, lol.

My favorite part of this episode was this delicious looking hamburg rice bowl (locomoco?) with miso soup. I'm hungry now!

Well, this guy was the best looking/had the best design by far in my opinion. He was kind of pushy and delinquent-ish though. Would not skip class with him..

Cute guy but in real life I'd never skip a class just so he could watch me sleep, that's way too creepy for me. Who knows what he'll do when I'm unconscious! Just saying...

I sometimes think that this show is too Japanese and I can't understand it. Like, why some of those guys are so utterly flabbergasted at the simplest of things? Why is this guy asking me if I'm weird? Why was astronomy guy amazed that I wanted to listen about stars when I clearly went with him to see them? So many questions; geez, this may be the deepest show I ever watched.

This. Even though this anime isn't about cooking/food, that meal looked pretty nice.

Even hotter than the guy.

As for the protagonist of this episode, there is one word that landed like a brick on my mind:

PLAYA---!

Astronomy boy is cute but damn. <3 I like astronomy boy's personality a little more though.;;
I mean, this guy's probably better than fedora/trilby guy who made a cameo in the part where this guy's sitting in the lecture. M'lady. :U

Also was that a ring on this guy's finger? Are Japanese ring meanings different or no?

I mean you're not wrong. All psychology students do in make useless collages about feelings anyway. jk

Enjoy your anime!

I wanted him to suggestively lick the lolly, making all of the watchers feel even more uncomfortable.

LOL, but I agree. That awesome cafeteria meal was definitely hotter than the dude.

Pretty sad when food is more attractive than a guy...

A bit weird, but still great episode !

Aw, he was super cute, not going to mixer to skip class and sleep with me on the grass. :) if he really was a college boy, he would've already been my boyfriend for sure, lol

the first ten seconds of pure silence freaked me out. i should have expected it by now but still. at least the food looked nice.

then again the guy's offer of skipping to watch me sleep is creepy.

The Lord the doesn't exist have mercy! He was hella gorgeous!
2D, male, redheads, like him kill me. Unlike some, I enjoyed his hairstyle quite a bit.
Nobunaga Shimazaki did not disappoint!
My fave out of the guys so far being eight eps in.
Made up for describing a five year old as "hot" last ep.

Typical guys that party at my school are much more obnoxious, so I can't say he's too bad.
It's kind of weird he was watching you sleep though. It's one thing if it's your SO in your bed after dating for a while, but some girl you've never seen... and like admitting it ^^;

As said, the food looks good, it could be Tonkatsu. Now i want some Tonkatsu with that sweet, spicy, barbecue sauce that is served with it.

A huge ego and suffers from Nomophobia. Doesn't put his mobile on silent for even two seconds to talk with you properly. Who came up with these characters! None of them are appealing so far, they appeal to my fight or flight instinct though.
