THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Finally, they got a kabukibu club going together! However, one thing about the club is how well they can maintain it.

First half of this episode felt slightly boring imo.

However, I kinda like the lighthearted drama in this show. To me, I think Kurogo even has some leadership skills as he is the one that got the group together in the first place.

Mod Edit: Modified title as series name was updated.

They are enjoying the show, especially they got drawn into the second half and getting emotional.

That senpai is talking in feminine tone ever since he revealed he actually likes Kabuki especially female roles. He had girlfriend, who didn't think of him as her boyfriend, which the reason for body training.

So that megane girl is the one who makes cosplay outfits. It seems like she knows the band person.

Megane girl is very guarded of herself and revealed first that she doesn't look attractive.

A problem: instructor is needed... Main guy proving to the vice principal, who looked down on him without actually knowing his ability / passion first, as well as other teachers there so that he can be that.

Even the current young actor saw it, but he still refuses to join or getting involving them.

Starts of the club activity first, and already planned for real performance?!

They finally got to form a kabukibu club. They got someone to do costumes for them. Kurogo's small performance was great. He impressed everyone. He is also the leader for the club. Hanamichi got friend-zoned by the girl he was with. He got into body-building because of that. Looking forward to see what the kabukibu club is going to do.

I was on the same assumption as Kuro and Tonbo. I was actually surprised to see Hanamichi romantically interesetd in girls.

Really happy that they were able to get their Kabuki club sanctioned and I like how enthusiastic everyone is about it now too

But what I liked the most was finding out more about the dude that can't sing and the pretend thug....I'm glad that he at least likes girls, but man this dude got friendzoned so hard that even I felt it lol. He should go after his cute childhood friend :)

The combination of meaningful drama and unexpected comedy is what makes this show work. Proper character development is given to the new members of the club and Maruko's introduction is a bonus, too. We also get to see some of the basics of a kabuki play and how they factor in Kurogo's leadership. Now that the club is formed, we can see how the protagonists work to keep it running.

Well looks like the anime start to kinda be interesting.

The character deepening of Hanamichi was pretty interesting,especially that before that scene i really didn't liked the character.

the kabuki prestation at the end was pretty good too,i mean i don't know shit about Kabuki but it was entertaining to see,now i just want to see this kind of prestation on a scene or something.


I'm still not hyped for this anime but atleast now i'm interested.

This is a nice show and they're all a nice group of kids, but it's just a little too dull for me. Dropped, unfortunately. It's a busy season of anime.

I love the "real" Hanamichi!
This new girl is annoying.

Wow nice. This really is getting good. Liked the "show" at the end in the teacher's room. And the other guy might start to recognize the main slowly because of that (and then later joining/helping the group).

Also the girl with glasses was nice. Totally different from what I expected. (Thought we'd get a more cute voice/personality. But I liked that personality and voice they showed much better. ;) )

Took them long enough to get the Kabuki group up and running but I'm glad to see everyone getting fired up for it! It seems that Kuro's energy is infectious! Plus Ebihara finally acknowledged Kuro's passion for Kabuki but it seems he still does not approve. I hope the anime continues to pick up the pace and excite
I shall rule over the realms of anime and manga! Mwahhahahahaha!!!

The Kabukibu has now 5 members!
The teachers was all impressed about the passion of Kurusu towards Kabuki.
There are some others who are bitter about their club...lolz.
4/5.

This was a great episode! Maruko is an extremely enjoyable character, her introduction was just great, I feel like I already know her for more than two episodes now. Now I wish Akutsu somehow joins the newly formed Kabuki club too.
So I'm guessing Ebihara will be the titular rival for our club and Kuro?
That Kabuki imitation by Kuro in the episode was excellent and so passionate! I definitely felt that one.

This was a mad dash for 5 members but they only have 12 episodes so what can I expect.

God Maruko brought the ANIME WACKINESS from 10 to 100 just with her presence, it's obnoxious.
