Geez, that green haired girl seems to be fond of Nomura now. Even keeping him all to herself in the bath.

Mary seemed cute this episode compared to some of the others. Inaba also gets more screen time although she doesn't look well with a fever. Got a good dose of laughter from Rin's reactions this episode. So fucking priceless Looks like we find out a bit about her past too and I'd say, it's about damn time.

Warabi trying to control herself while everyone was talking was amusing. Got to learn about Fudou's and Rin's past. Rin thought he was going to something to her, but he took off her mask. She does look cute without it. Both had messed up lives.

That was a weird episode, the mix of kinda sad backstories and Warabi's "tsukkomis", felt like the episode was out of place with all of the rest.

Poor Tsukuyo, she got fever after waiting all the time. :(
So that's the cause of Rin wearing the devil mask. I wonder what will happen if she w ear a Tengu mask instead. LOL

Not a completely terrible episode, I expected the girls to beat him up again, I'm glad I was wrong.

Both Rin and Nomura have sad backstories. It's sad that Rin had to wear the mask because of her mother. She looks cute without it.

Kyo-bo sliding in that bucket for Warabi was funny to see. She's a lifesaver I guess.

Warabi needing to piss while Nomura and Rin laid out their backstories LOL

The backstories itself were pretty sad, especially Rin's. Nomura finally likes this school and the girls.

That serious talk overlayed with the pee gag worked out surprisingly well XD
Rin and nomura both have family problems but they make up :)

After the non-stop action and hilarity of previous episodes, some meaningful character moments between Nomura and Onigawara are what the show needs to make for a compelling narrative. It's also good to see the other girls providing some levity in the background. Episodes like this prove viewers have to get invested in the characters to make the show work.

I really enjoyed this episode and it gave me a lot of laughs.

I like this episode. Both Nomura and Rin traded their own backstories, which was really nice. Now Rin can surely sleep well for the night all relieved without feeling any guilt. Warabi with the tsukkomi while holding it in on the bed was very hilarious. And now Nomura possibly gets along with Sanae Kochiya Satori as well.

Only Tsukuyo and the Empress left to befriend. x)

"My Mother Called me Ugly" Well shit that was a little bit of a surprise. That kind of caught me off guard, sad backstory for Rin.

Kinda figured that for Nomura as well. Figured maybe it was his grandfather that trained him, but a random old guy works as well haha.

Kyo-Bo was one of the stars of this episode, the bucket slide had me crying lol.

Tamaba is great, hopefully we can see her teamup with Nomura next arc.

I wonder who the girl was behind the mask???

This was honestly a really good episode. This show is turning out for the better and I'm glad I stayed put.
Some interesting background story of the Oni and Nomura. Worked surprisingly well with the pee scene. I would think it detracts from the emotions but it didn't.
So a pretty sad past for both of them. They weren't tear-jerking but it definitely is a more serious topic and a nice change of pace. It was funny, Warabi had to go pee but can't because it would be awkward to interrupt on such a serious conversation. Kyou-bo gave a bucket.
Still love how Nomura attracts he opposite sex regardless of species.

Tamaba is definitely interesting and a pretty well fleshed out character. I grew to like the characters. Oni seems to be main girl.
Kikakujou seems to be just for laughs. everyone else is rather interesting to see.

This show really needs to learn when to use jokes. Yeah, watching Blondie struggle with pissing herself was funny but it really took away any emotion the rest of the scene could've added.

I would have rather Warabi pissed herself.

The little moment between Nomura and Onigawara was pretty nice. I was actually surprised to see them pull it off. Normally in scenarios like that something often gets in the way before one can finish.

Poor Mary got rejected again. She even takes the assertive route by taking it off then asking and still fails.

I don't like how the anime is been setting up Rin as the end girl.
I'd prefer that villain girl who beat down Nomura before lol
But honestly, harem ending is the best. It's so rare to see it happen nowadays *Sigh*

A nice Episode without any fight. Finally understand what's Onigawara and Nomura's backstories... Onigawara is cute without mask tbh.


And lol at Hanasaka when 'She's holding up' just to not interrupt the scene.
Next Episode we might return to the fight scene again once more. Can't wait...

This episode felt like the complete resoultion of the whole Satori thing. Everyone getting recovered and understanding explanations. Entertaining. as this anime has been.

Mostly talking, but still enjoyed the episode. Thought Nomura was going to get emotional on us with his backstory, but turns out it was just trading secrets to make Rin feel at ease.

Rin's backstory was kinda dumb tbh and I don't get why he didn't do something to the blonde?
