Awww, but what a nice episode. Everything is fine, no misunderstanding, Rena will be no longer jealous of Chi, and Chi will learn how to smile properly. Arata is starting to learn something by teaching others, that's nice.
Definitely, Chizuru has to be 001.
Really good episode, very realistic and has a moral in it. All that without putting aside all the humor!
PD: Uy! Judging by the next episode preview, An is going for it!!
Kaizaki took the adult role with Kariu, and it went deep, from him lifelearning, (man its fun to learn something new every day!! cause you get wiser every day.) poor Kariu took it hard :-:
Hishiro manage finally to become friends with kariu as soon realized realized that Hishiro's bad at smiling. xD best part. awww they are friends now :3
I'm' really wondering how they're gonna erase Arata from their lives after the year is up. Since Arata is the reason the two became friends, wouldn't erasing their memories cause them to not be friends? He's had an influence on so many things already :O
* Kaizuki and Kariu fell down concrete stairs!! Shouldn't they have been taken to the hospital instead of the Nurse's Office?!
* "... malice-free tone-deaf communicator ..." Ha! That's a good one!!
* Kariu could stand to learn a few things from Hishiro about being straight-forward.
"Why am I the only one with problems?" this quote sums up Kariu's character pretty well I think. I hated this arc, but they had the decency to keep it short and this episode was really good. Hopefully there will be more like the first two and a half episodes from now on.
I was hoping that smile joke would remain a joke, but I was extremely worried when the gimmick turned into a dramatic point. I'm glad to see that it resolved itself fairly well, but it's still a bit rocky in my eyes. That aside, the interesting thing about this anime is how aware An and Arata are with regards to the other characters' relationships. In a sense, ReLIFE runs on self-awareness and self-recognition, which makes sense given the plot is about Arata coming to terms with his own life. However, if Welcome to the NHK is to have any bearing on this, the act of recognition is only the first step. The action taking beyond that is what really matters, so I'm curious to see what Arata can do about himself, assuming this anime manages to get far enough for such a thing to happen.
It was a nice episode, with a good theme.
I like the comparison issue they explored a little in this episode. Like how everyone compares themselves to others and feels inferior, not being able to see what they have instead. Can be relatable to many people.
OMG! Ryoko is the nurse. She's in the same show as Miyuki. I need to see them in the same scene talking to each other.
The nurse's name is Inukai. Related to Aki? They got the same hair and eye color.
Arata asks Rena the question.
Arata told the truth.
lol I knew Arata was going to hide.
lol at Ryo behind him.
lol at Chizuru ratting out Arata for ratting out Rena.
Rena hates Chizuru.
LMAO at Chizuru's smile.
LMAO at Rena asking Chizuru to smile-stop-smile-stop.
Dat handshake. Aijou Yuujou.
Dat Rena text.
If you see that my post is exactly 1 month old (or more) from when it was posted... Don't waste your time, especially when you want to reply with something petty & insignificant. Assume that I've moved on (because I have).
VERY GOOD EPISODE
I have nothing to say but wow, this anime provides a story full of reality and characters that you can find in your everyday. It is just amazing to see how the character evolves so rapidly and use this second life to do things as he would have liked to do in real life. Even if the issues of the arc(someone stealing a bag) are not such a though thing, the anime keeps hooking me. This is awesome
