Lol a Valentines gift.

I guess that's a nice little present for motivation. While there's one more episode left, I think this one was much more relaxed than some of the others. Wish they focused more time on Haruko's match though. I think it's understandable Haruko wants to be born as a guy rather than girl. For her, judo seems to be one of the mot important things in her life.

Never in a million years would i have thought that she is Ton's girlfriend. I feel betrayed and shocked. That's quite a twist i did not expect :O

The character development for the whole team was great to see here.

Haru made up with his sister :D

I couldn't believe the "revelation" myself. Haru and Chihiro looked so cute together, but nope, have to have a doujin couple with fat guy and cute girl...It was so bad I could care less about the rest of the episdoe.
I wish Cowboy Bebop never existed.

I was really shocked. I was glad for Haru to maybe get closer to her than this oh my and Haru and her looked so good together but now this lol poor Haru. Im against all sorts of BL in this anime Kazu and Haru are good friends but thats it nothing more or less.

That twist was fire.

Also the crappy faces are getting to me, I was totally laughing when they showed Haru and Kazu's faces when they were talking about what everyone went through.
Though I liked the bonding of Haru and Haruko, that was nice.

Oh and can we all just appreciate the fact that Sakuma made Valentine chocolates for Kazu? I think he might be BL.

The seme-head pat in the OP is also a nice little detail.

Me gusta :^)

This is so funny!
I laugh so hard!
But... OMG! WTF?!
I feel so betrayed!
So... really?!
No... possible girlfriends for main characters?
That sucks.
Like something that could save the series (excluding seiyuu)
was romance... is ruined.

Well... This is so funny and unexpected and I liked...
but damn... why?! -.-

Wow, that was a really cruel twist for Haru. I mean I could never decided between Haru x Kazu or Haru x that girl (can't remember her name) so I guess the choice has been made for me. Except now, Kazu x Sakuma is cute too..

Plot twist of the year, I didn't see it coming.

Stay strong, Haru.

Mizoguchi is one of the funniest and greatest characters in a while, he doesn't have much screentime but I truly think he is the MVP.

Can't get over how much we and the characters in the show were I even thought Haru and Chihiro would be cute together, while my friends were shipping Haru and Kazu. Well then.

Still, nice mini developments into the other characters, I like how everyone does get some focus time to develop. The conversation about siblings was so realistic, I've had those with my friends too haha. Although they seem to be really close with their siblings. I'm glad Haru's thing with his sister was resolved :)

Bittersweet Valentine is the wrong title, it should be called salty sweet Valentine instead because of how salty it made me feel
I feel so shocked because my Chihiro x Haru ship sank in literally less than a second

Next ep they'll cheer me up with some hopefully great cheerleading

I feel bad for Haru but seriously I'm so glad she is Ton's girlfriend since I've been shipping Kazu and Haru. This is a really nice eps where most of their personal problems got solved. Guess next week's eps can be wrapped up nicely :)

Kazu appologizing was really nice and cute lol! :P

but I don"t get why long-hair-kansaiben-guy-whos-name-i-forgot doesnt get chocolate... I mean... seams like the type of guy who would be popular right? can compete with Shou for the looks and definitely has more ...sens??

oh and Shou watching Haru and the girl with is toilet brush in hand made me laugh as well XD

That was some high-level trolling :D Never expected Chihiro to be Ton's girlfriend.
I like that Haru and his sister made up, him going to cheer for her was very touching.

I laughed my ass off when Haru was just standing there, mouth open to attract flies who might have possibly given him some chocolate if they loved him even a little.

No but seriously, that part was hilarious. I never thought of Haru and Chihiro as a couple though, so I don't feel betrayed at all. Then again, I'm so used to shipping things I know will never happen...

Which leads me to the next subject. I really appreciated that KazuxSaku. I didn't really care for it at first, but this episode with them was actually really cute. Shipping with an expected "return to sender". OTL

Enjoy your anime!

I know how Haru feels so many times over. Such a twist. Almost made me angry that it happened. But then Ton is a nice guy and deserves someone like Chihiro.
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?

What a TWIST! O.O I can't believe that girl is Ton's girlfriend!
Haru's face from such a revelation had me laughing and feeling pity for him. Poor baby T-T
I love how Kazu and Shou were comforting him, so that makes me feel better (I guess this really is" Bros before Hoes" type of show LOL)
Other than that, I 'm glad Haru and his sis are getting along again and Kazu got chocolate from Saku was so cute ( you better reciprocate on White day, Kazu ;) )
Can't wait for the last ep!

This is the best episode! Last week when I saw the preview for it I was extremely worried because I thought my ships would be ruined by girls. But the complete opposite happened.

Saku giving chocolate to Kazu was so freaking adorable. It already seemed like he had a crush on him before, but even more so after that.

And the plot twist was absolutely perfect. Chiho always annoyed me and I thought she may actually end up with Haru, so this was such a nice surprise, and also a great "In your face!" moment. The average, overweight guy is the only one who has a girlfriend and I love that so much. And since she turned out to be Haru's "love interest" it was way better. When Tun started talking about the cake I got really excited because I could tell what was about to happen.

Now I'm just conflicted because I ship both KazuHaru and KazuSaku. XD

Haru is broken. Poor guy. I'm happy to meet Ton's girl finally, and I'm happy for him. But man, that's rough.

That twist wtih Ton and Chihiro was flawless. 10/10

That aside, the rest of the episode was great. I'm glad that Haru and Haruko finally made up. Hopefully the finals are as good as they're building it up to be.
