THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Oh shit. That was awesome. Satoru's mother intervenes just when Kayo's mom was about to smack her daughter yet again.

Definitely also glad to see Satoru and Kayo getting along even more. The two has such an unique chemistry in this timeline imo. He's even coming to visit her now and walking to school. The development of their relationship is significant so it's really nice to see the series focus on that with the narrative dialogues. As usual, I think the music tone complements fairly well for this series. Happy to see Satoru's friends treating Kayo kindly as well. That surprise party~ The cliffhanger kinda worries me though.

Trying to talk to the girl's mother for approving to going out, then main guy's mother helping out. Planetarium and remembering what the past happened.

On the day of the girl missing... He tries to be with her as always so that she won't be missing. The day passed and the friends gave them surprised b-day party. She didn't come to the school the next day, though... Thought so, it's not that easy and so quick to change the past seeing it went so smoothly (still 8 more eps. left).

Good job, Satoru!

First of all, I'm just glad that he managed to stop her to abuse Hinazuki ( for a while, though). And, another point of view from Satoru's mom proving that she still loves her child based on her clothes. Man, I don't even think that aspect.


Her mother has great taste, anyway.


Second, Let's count how many smiles can he protect!


Third...

No no no, you won't find it in the market, or even a store, no.

Try it first before others gotta get it publicly sooner or later!

Thank you.

Wow, this episode was phenomenal!
The segment where Satoru's mom has a face off with Hinazuki's mom was amazing. Satoru tried his level best, but it turns out that he wasn't able to change the past...yet.
This episode kept on the edge for the entire time. Too much tension!
I really like the character of Satoru's mom.

5/5

Satoru's mom was really cool.....she was admirable, so far she is the most interesting character in this show.
She truly needs to be saved.

....and also Kayo, she is becoming cuter and cuter, especially when she is blushing :)

Go Go Satoru...you will save the best mom and future wife at the same time if you're successful

Satorus mother in this episode was awesome, im so glad she stopped Kayos mother well for now. I actually thought Satoru did everything right to "change history" but then that daym cliffhanger happened, but now im worried about Kayo. I have a feeling Kayos mother has something to do with it all to be honest.

When Kayo smiles though omg its adorable! I really hope she's okay.
Really excited for next week's episode! This is such a fantastic series.

Welp. I was hoping throughout the whole entire episode that nothing bad would happen. But the mood took a full 180 at the last 10 seconds though. Hopefully it isn't anything too serious and i just a cliffhanger bait.

Really looking forward to next week.

This episode was beyond kawaii

The bitch cunt face mom almost pissed me the fuck off and made me super angry but thankfully Satoru's mom put that bitch in check

Everything else about this episode was just great, heartwarming and beyond adorable and I was so happy to see Kayo and Satoru be happy together plus the little funny moments in between were great xD

Still, I knew that something had was going to happen at the end.....I really hope that Kayo isn't dead TwT All of the stuff with the teacher made me even more wary too

This show is already giving me feels. I get chills during certain warm parts like when he tightened his grip on Kayo's hand or when Kayo thanked him for the gift. I was happy for once during this show. Then the last 30 seconds of the episode... Fuck everything

Now this is what I call a cliffhanger. Lol
I can see them adapting the whole third in one episode. Cause I still cant see them finish the story at this pace which is still good but for 12 episodes?
Other than that great episode as usual.

Great episode as usual, but as a manga reader the pacing in this series is starting to worry me. They intend to cover the whole manga in 12 episodes, yet they're been moving at such a snails pace ever since episode 2. I sense some major rushing and butchering coming later on in the series.

Well the relationship between Satoru and Kayo certainly was adorable to watch unfold this week. Seriously, everytime Satoru blurted out his feelings was kawaii. :D His mom was pretty great too, knowing about that date and briefly confronting Kayo's mom. And those tears when he gave her her present near the end...I nearly teared up myself. Unfortunately in time travel stories it's almost never that easy, and it appears as if all Satoru has waiting for him is great tragedy.

Fucking hell, man.

It's been a long time since an anime gave me this much tension for the whole episode. Incredible.

Satoru's and Kayo's scenes are beautiful, love how she is opening up.

But that cliffhanger is fucking terrible ;-;

First of all a giant FUUUUUUUUUUUU at the ending. Perfect episode as usual. To be honest I was wondering the same thing. Although I don't read the manga I find the pacing of the anime spot on till now. But it's only 12 episode I really worry they are gonna rush things or skip important stuff to catch up latter on. I really hope they don't ruin the ending of the series. Make it at least 13 episodes ffs (or even better give it a second season. Does the manga have enough material for something like that or no way in hell?)

That would be ideal but it's not going to happen. It's said the full story will go into these episodes. So I'm a bit worried ofc. But let's see, so far A-1 did an excellent job.

Beautiful episode. Really loving chemistry of Satoru and Kayo and damm, I'm worried and curious about the ending. Wondering whether Kayo's death is inevitable or not. Steins;Gate's vibe is real.

Will this going to be her last smile?

I don't see A1 fucking it up.

And i can read just fine. ;)

People should enjoy this until the supposed rushing comes in. Until then, you shouldn't complain.

This ep is filled with emotions and surprises.

I cried at the scene when he was holding her hand in front of the park she was kidnapped in. Also the scene where he gave her the gloves! It was so sweet!

But then, that last scene made me just go NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

ugh this anime is so good I can't wait till next week ;--;

What a lovely series of events, until that cliffhanger...

Damn evil people always have to ruin the happiness of others.

Great episode.

I'm speechless. Seriously, I didn't see anything that good for a while. If they keep it on this level to the end, it will definitely land in my fav list.
Awesome direction and narration.. Just perfect.

Why so aggressive lol

It could have the manga's ending in a second season.

I don't understand why they are going at such a slow pace if they are trying to adapt everything in 12 episodes.

But maybe they will rush everything later.

F***!!!! I knew this was going toooo friggin happily D: What happened to Kayo?!?!

This ep was really sweet tho. Loved when Sachiko stopped Kayo's bitch mom from hitting her.

I really thought the deja vu was implying he's been looping or sth. I hope not ^^;

The amount of care Satoru showed for Kayo was so much it kinda felt like obsession reaching creepy stalker status XD Such a cute OTP <3

Kayo crying about not being able to finish the gift was so adorable.

And do they seriously expect us to believe that Kenya and Sensei's eerie discussion at the cliffhanger was about a birthday surprise O_o

I really wonder what nxt ep will be about. Cliche or not plz just be a cold or sth...

Good but there are a few MAJOR problems. He keeps saying he's 29, but he really does act like a little kid. Also why does he think getting past the day will save her, it's not the day that kills her... Really everything he's doing isn't making a whole lot of sense to prevent her from being killed. I mean, think about it, if you went back in time to prevent someone from being killed by a serial killer, would you be doing what he's doing? Maybe if you really were a little kid, but not a 29 year old surely.

Knew something bad will happen at the end, everything was going so great... :-D

also I was expecting that he saved Hinazuki but the girl with the pigtails died in her place or something like that, she seemed rather distant when the girls started to talk with the sensei.

Damn it man...i know how this works...you have a happy episode and than the next one it is nothing but tragedy, the signs were all over the place.

I am also suspecting that when he said the dejavu...it means that he already traveled in the past repeatedly...but he cant remember anything...oh man this is so intense.

Last thing Satoru x Kayo..i would totally ship that.

It's one way to do it. Avoid as fast as possible from being kidnapped first. Who cares when she actually dies when you can save her before she gets kidnapped?

I can't even remember when was the last time that I was so inlove with an anime since FMAB. Everything in this show blends so beautifully and with such elegance.

People keep comparing it to Steins;Gate. I guess I`ve got to watch that too.
