The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Yep, what an idiot. She sort of took it well and then he got really weird and blew it.

It was winter and Misaki was still wearing that sorta baseball jersey top thing that she always wears. Wouldn't she be cold? I hope her always wearing the same outfit (except for the pink dress when she met Satou's mum) has some story significance, or it's just lazy animation.

I think you guys are missing the whole fucking POINT. He did that shit because he CAN'T see her anymore. You think he can inherit that farm and marry any bitch out there? nah bro

Either way, you guys are acting like they're soulmates or something. I really doubt he'd have the time to come out and see some COLLEGE GIRLFRIEND when he's supposed to be running the farm. Hell, I'm not even sure if they were even in a relationship anymore. I can't remember. If they weren't, that makes the fact that you guys can't understand why he did what he did even more ridiculous.

He's not an idiot. Yamazaki is a badass. He did that shit for a REASON.

A serious episode.

It was really brave for Yamazaki to do that. I hope everything turns out better towards the end.

I feel really sorry for Yamazaki... He's been through difficult situations since he was a child...

Well, imo, this episode was really well-made. Also, Nanako is a pretty different girl XD

Poor Yamazaki. I'm not surprised that he rebelled. But I think that he should be more delicate when he was talking with Nanako.

It got better, and with a big hit. He ended everything, so there are only two ways for him now: Making the Game or Beeing a Farmer for the rest of his life. I wonder how this will continue.

What Yamazaki did was ingenious. Though he probably should have cut that last part where he started mocking her. She probably would have understood if he explained it all.

He's been visiting 4chan a lot lately, and hadn't trolled anyone in a while. So really he just did it "for the lulz"

Crazy kids.

Yeah, I'm of the opinion he did the smart thing. Yamazaki knew he wasn't even her first choice by that point. Satou knew this as well after overhearing the girls gossip the one episode. Women sometimes like to keep guys like Yamazaki as their emergency support. I got the feeling that's all that their so called relationship ever was.

I guess for Yamasaki he knew it had to come to an end. So he'd take one chance to be a badass and push her buttons on purpose. It was his way of breaking free of any lingering doubts.

I actually breaked a comic when Yamazaki showed his room, I mean it was comical but also sad, the despair of knowing your life isn't actually yours.

I think he broke up with her in order not to hurt her, and not hurt himself even more, it was comfortable to think that otaku are hated as a default attitude, he took comfort from it.

This series is actually a life lesson, one of my favorites so far.

In no way do I feel sorry for Yamazaki! He has to be the biggest idiot in the whole show now! Only reason he broke up with him is because he WANTED her to. If she was as serious about him as she was he could have easily asked her to go with him.

IF anything I feel sorry for Nanako

And a true hero to an Otaku is the one that actually gets the girl wile being an Otaku don't you think?

again 2/10 for this episode

Oh come on man, why did he have to blow it like that. Nanako actually still liked him even as an otaku, but he just acted like an asshole. How can he be so sure that he has to leave Tokyo anyway. He might aswell quit the galge production too then. When he sobers up he's going to feel so stupid.

Very sad episode. Btw anyone else who was reminded of the teacher from GTO? The stalker. With that room expose scene.

+1 = 5

Yamazaki became my favourite NHK character after his 'otaku reveal' stunt. An average man, such as Satou, would've given into his desires and fucked a girl such as Nanako silly if - in a room with tentacle rape on a monitor - she continued to express her affections openly. But Yamazaki was smart enough to know that, had he gone with the flow, it would've only caused more misery further down the line. It isn't as if a new relationship can survive long-distance - especially when Yamazaki was moving to the country and his girl loved the city life.

Satou wasn't able to laugh because the situation wasn't funny in the least. Had Nanako gone apeshit the moment she saw Yamazaki's nerdy smut collection, it would've been funny... but once she was willing to go out with him, in spite of his weirdness, it became painful.

Also, you guys complaining about Yamazaki's handling of the situation in the anime should take note of what happened in the manga: they had sex and, when Yamazaki was leaving at the train station, he saw Nanako kissing another girl; her declaring herself to be a lesbian (I think, anyway). Yeah...
