This episode was dedicated to showing how much of a goddamn pimp Goro can be.

4th graders' love affairs are kinda boring to watch.

Goro's a stud, and Shimizu's a babe.

I disagree, I found it kind of charming.

*sigh* Goro proved his idiocy yet again, but at least this time he definitely made up for it with Shimizu.

Unpopular opinion here, but I thought Goro was a bit of a douche. *shrug* whatever though.

Don't really think that is too unpopular of an opinion. Although isn't that the norm for younger shounen leads especially, to kind of just screw over the tomboy for the cute gentle girl?

Awwwn, that was so sweet :3
But goddamnit, Goro! You first trashtalk about someone and the other half of the episode, you're the smoothtalker we all aspired to be at 9 years old! Fuck you Goro for being more a man than the 21 year old that I am!

Very nice development, I like how quickly the problems are solved. Still 5 more seasons left for romantic development.
Great episode.

Exactly. Go see real 4th graders and see if romance happens. Hint : it does not. Hence this whole episode was just stupid and useless.

And that's why you don't involve girls. They will let you down as soon as things don't go their way.

Also, I know that men and women's orientation skills function differently, but you cannot fail to catch this badly for so long...

Well Goro was a complete ass during the first few minutes but he sure made up for it during the last bit. Typical anime bad boy right there, treat em like shit and then charm them back with a few smooth lines. Works every time lol.

Goro was an ass for 17 minutes but he made the last 4 minutes count, way to go!

Yeah Goro was an ass, but they're all nine year old, so they don't really know how to act properly and what you're supposed to say and what not. Both Goro and Shimizu were believable character this episode, and it was a nice episode.

Anybody knows the titles of the piano themes which sounds while Goro reads Shimizu's writing and when she catches her first ball?

I don't think it was bad for Gorou to have a crush on Ryoko(?), again, but he took it way too far with Shimizu. It's really no wonder that she would get sick of it with all the verbal abuse she takes. Those jokes were okay really early on, but once it goes on for so long it's in really poor taste, especially since nobody was going out of their way to help her.

The last part of the episode was ridiculously cute.

Such a cute episode, but Gorou was really an ass here at first.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

I always feel like Shimizu never really felt like a part of the team, mostly how she initially joibed because of Goro and not baseball but after this episode I really hope she just continues to grow and get better. Her gag being just bad was fun only for a little while but I'd rather not see that continue...
