This anime is so wholesome. I was nearly crying of joy, because the dude was doing something (the cofession) I would never do. Thank you past me for picking this anime out to watch just because it had a bunny girl on the cover. :-P

wow, this reminds me of monogatari, the first arc about the girl he loves and then I hope it goes down towards the many many routes that monogatari has where there are tons of great stories with great characters

That was brilliant. A perfect episode for this show.

The confession was awkward but it was meant to be like that. Especially after everything with the Adolescent Syndrome and everyone forgetting about Mai, it had to be awkward.

The chemistry continues to be fantastic, the dialogue continues to be fantastic, and I'm really gassed.

I'm sensing this and JoJo Part 5 would have a tight competition for my favorite Anime of the Season spot.

This was good, but it would've been SO much better if they had given the two of them more episodes together. Right now, for me, this was just good but rushed.

This is by far my favorite anime this season. It's been a while since I've actually cheered for a couple, and loved them both (just like AraraGahara)
Wait, did you just say that Jojo is shit?

Oh, don't you worry. Mai will play a key role from now on, regardless of the fact that new characters come into focus.

Rather, just the opposite. The next episode should have two of my favorite Sakuta/Mai scenes evah.

Great episode. This season has been pretty awesome until now. The screaming scene was weird, even though it makes sense, but apart from that, great. All the scientific explanations sound a bit pretentious, though. It's not bad, just a weird fit. I feel they are just scratching the surface of it for effect rather than being essential with it.

It will be like Monogatari. He'll find other girls with adolescent syndrome to save and slowly build his harem. I just hope he won't flirt with everyone like Araragi, the anime style doesn't really fit with that.

The writing of the character interactions is fantastic. This was a wonderful episode, they could have stretched it out longer but in interested to see where this series goes. As long as we get more Mai senpai.

Seriously this could be the best romance anime in 2018 but I don't want to jinx it.

Oh wow,.. I fully expected this to be drawn out over the full 13 episodes; Sakuta losing his memory of Mai, and then regaining it.


Instead it seems follow the Hyouka format, in which the main duo gets established first, and then presented with various mysteries, developping their relationship (not necessarily in a romantic way) along the way.

The Monogatari series gets mentioned a lot too I noticed, but I find this show's style to be too different for that comparison. I do hope it stays like that, and that the other arcs won't turn this into a faux harem. Nothing wrong with that, or with the Monogatari series, but it not in this show please.

I actually found it to be quite palatable, much more so than in a lot of other shows. It fitted them, and what it overdid, it overdid clearly for the sake of restoring Mai's existance.

He'll probably do it, sadly. This is the "problem" with these kind of shows, there is a certain glow only one character can have, and the fact no girl gets to be the "special one", takes a lot of meaning from the show, at least for me.
I hope I'm wrong, as I haven't read the LN, But, I have the feeling I'm not.

I was honestly really disappointed when Sakuta just "magically" remembers that he forgot about Mai during the middle of his exam.

Yeah, that worked in Monogatari because it had too much parody vibes around it and the writing was clever enough for us to overlook stuff for the sake of effect, but Bunny Girl is too sober and far more, uh, "realistic". It will be really stupid if it suddenly turn out to be just another harem.

I really hope it doesn't try to pull a fullblown Monogatari.

It wasn't really random, he remembers a question from studying with Mai last night and that triggers a whole bunch of memories. I think they probably could have done it in a better way though.

Personally I welcome it, monogatari series is my favorite. Even if it turns out to be a "poor-mans" monogatari it will just keep me satisfied until more monogatari is released.

Best couple of 2018 and I don't care what anybody says....This episode was FUCKING BEAUTIFUL and that's all I have to say

Seeing Mai let Sakuga forget her followed by his realization that he forgot her and then that AMAZING confession easily makes this episode one of the most memorable things that I've seen in an anime all year


Well said! I completely concur.

Ehhh the resolution to Mai's situation seems very sudden and, frankly, something like a very loud confession is not what I expected to get considering all the mood and buildup. Pretty cheesy. I'm just a little bit disappointed. I don't hate it, in fact I still think its cool in its own way, I actually love cheese like that sometimes, but my expectations of some smart and unique finale to this were betrayed. But whatever.
Continuing to watch for sure, as I like the two characters too much.

Now my hope is there's still screentime of them both and not Mai completely shoved to the side to focus solely on some other, worse girl

Great episode.

Damn, that part where Mai lets Sakuta forget her was so sad. :(

I was wondering what Sakuta was going to do when he started running after he finally remembered Mai but when he got to the field I kinda knew what he was gonna do. Respect for Sakuta for doing what he did, that took a lot of guts and it must've been embarrassing as hell to him but what's a little embarrassment in a confession right? Gotta really hand to him, he's pretty cool. XD

I do think that I would've liked this even more if they had made Mai's arc a little longer and added more interaction between the two, cause those were really the most entertaining parts of the arc. I just hope Mai's presence doesn't diminish in future episodes cause that would be disappointing, gimme some couple development.

I really don't know if I enjoyed this episode or not. In one hand, we have their relationship just getting better in every aspect, but in the other hand, we have that cringe confession. I still will mantain my score for now, but I'm not sure if this show will continue to improve after the events of this episode

I really like their interaction with each other, it's like they're real people and not just a collection of dumb tropes forced into shitty characters with skin deep personalities, like in most anime romances.

I was also pleasantly surprised that the entire manga was wrapped up in just 3 episodes, so the rest of the season will actually be new material for me.

edit:
And yes, the confession was cringy, but I'm certain he did that intentionally to force everybody in the school to remember/recognize her.

So the show used all the 21 chapters of the manga and put it in 3 episodes. I like the show a lot, but I dont know where it's going to go from here, unless the light novel has more to it.

The feels man... ;(

The confession scene was so emotional and embarrassing at the same time, I was expecting a kiss or at least a hug but duuude I'm loving this anime so far. It feels like the story could finish right there but I'm hoping to watch some more of Sakuta's and Mai's story together. Can't wait for next week! ^^

Huh, I really wasn't expecting that to be resolved so quickly. Kinda thought there would be a bit more of a struggle to get his memory back, especially since he blew his diary message off. Not 100% on board with that, but to look on a positive note I think there is still a lot of potential with this. I really like the chemistry Mai and Sakuta have, so the fact that they are together now will hopefully bring good things. Seems the series will focus on Sakuta helping other characters with cases of adolescence syndrome. I just hope Mai will continue to be a major character during all this.

I have one thing to say regarding the episode: Really fast paced. Though for some reason, I was bothered only by 15%.

How Sakuta solved Mai's problem was too funny and awesome that I just can't help but love this one so much!

Pros and Cons of the episode:

Pros:
+ Sakuta's determination to not forget Mai by not sleeping at all. And Mai decided to put an end to his not-sleeping plan so he won't suffer.
+ How Sakuta solved Mai's problem.

+ Sakuta and Mai
As much as I have mixed feelings regarding fast pacing, I still love it when anime does that.

Cons:
- Really fast paced. Well, that's what you get for trying to cram 5 light novels in just 13 episodes. Then again, like I said, I was only bothered by 15%. It definitely will bother others though.

I was genuinely surprised that the score rose again. I expected a lot of people would be put off by the pacing. (Of course there will be people who do that) But who knows? Let's see how the next episodes will be like...

My rating is 4.5/5 for the episode~

Hoping that for the other girls' arcs, Mai still makes a lot of appearances later. I know why she probably won't be around for a while (What she said in Episode 2), but really hoping her relevance to the plot remains the same. Especially the fact that I love their relationship and chemistry and I want to see more.

I demand more Sakuta x Mai moments!

"That wasn't the final Puberty Syndrome incident." Clearly, since there are other girls in the OP...

don't think i would've been able to handle that confession if it happened inside the school everyone kinda seem to be silently watching ,guess hes earned his cheeky confident tone after having a heart of iron.


all in all i feel like this was too short since it seems to be moving on now that hes gotten his "Senjougahara" time to work on the other girls

So first off I was scared that this'll turn out like Amagami where we change heroines from arc to arc every 3-4ish eps, so I rushed in here to ask people and thank God that wasnt the case, was about to stop watching if it that was the case, I love Sakuta X Mai too dang much.

That being said I knew a lot of people including myself would skip that cringy confession scene, the chemistry of those 2 is amazing, just like the other guy that already said this, I'll repeat it, BEST COUPLE OF 2K18 SAKUTA X MAI!

This was everything I wanted and more.

To cram 5 LN volumes of 13 episodes seem like a sham more than anything, this episode proved that it took the Monogatari concept and shamboozled 13 plot-and-filler episodes into 3 episodes in terms of pacing, which was awkward but I do like when they just get straight to the point and not waste time with dumb exposition and whatnot. And it was brilliant.

With that said, the Sakuta X Mai ship is really still going strong...having to have the world without Mai seems like a typical society thing where people don't have time for one another, and I can relate heavily to that. You definitely don't want your presence to be hidden if you have friends who really care about you, and when it does, it bites hard.

That confession though. Super duper awkward "I can die from embarrassment kyah!!!" but it was necessary to revive Mai from the depths of people's (well at least the school) minds and clear the air of Sakuta's rumour. And all that cliche and troupes of a typical high school rom-com are there, but glad that there's a twist to them and really don't overstay their welcome.

Next episode, another girl? This series blend with the mix of Monogatari and SNAFU, so here's hoping that quality will last the next 2 months, and count it as AOTS (non-sequel) and AOTY contender.

If this had been a OVA of 3 episodes this would've been a great ending to the series. Now I'm intrigued to see what's coming next. This for me is one of the surprises of the season. 9/10

YEAH BOYS! Fuck man this anime is amazingly good. It's just something new and different and breaks the mold form other high school romance bullshit anime. It looks like it's going to have arcs like Bakemono has but this has a different feel and level then Bake.

Jesus that confession was amazing! Mai x Sakuta FTW!!!



Can we talk about how fucking amazing the opening and ending are though?!?! Holy lord so good.

Oh also I am guessing Mai sister is Sakuta's first love and that one month Period Mai gave to Sakuta I feel like the sister's going to come home into Mais life..then that will test Sakuta's love.

So I'm guessing this series will be one of those, 'new arc, new girl, new problem' type shows like Monogatari, Index, etc.

Can't say I was a fan of how the problem was resolved but it's supernatural and the author can do whatever I guess. The confession was amusing none the less.

I love how Mai’s ‘disappearance’ was resolved only three episodes into the series, because they were smart enough to recognize that it would not believably sustain for any longer than that... And the way Sakuta ‘brought her back’, in a sense, was beautiful. I’m digging that this is seemingly going to be somewhat of an anthology series, focussing on different characters being affected in different ways by the Adolescent Syndrome. Mad digging it!

That confession was so hard to watch but he did what he had to do. It was such a great moment that he was able to see her again. Their chemistry is fantastic, i can't find a better word to describe it.

this episode mystery constantly gave me kimi no na wa vibes and found this so many times better in terms of writing and raw emotion. Also that was one heck of confession scene which sure will be something very memorable moment. While this was good episode still somehow this could been better especially could worked within movie format well.

This was amazing. Why? Because I was full on embarassed when Sakuta was confessing—and that’s the point. Seriously I feel like I actually turned red and my ears felt hot. Sakuta you’re the best.

Also the part where she forced him to sleep was so damn touching.

An Emotional episode. Especially when mai-senpai give those pills, I though this is the end. What a confession though, at least that made everyone remember mai-senpai again (those embrassing shout come for something, at least).


Next episode..... waaaaaiiittt why there's another arc ? Is this another bakemonogatari ? Well, let's see next week then. The theory for next is interesting. I just know Laplace because of Integral Transform I've learnt on calculus class, so let's take a read about this theory too.

Still an bargain bin Monogatari with ugly visuals, every LN cliche under the sun right down to a bungled application to Schrodinger's Cat showing how much of a pseudo-intellectual the author is, an ersatz Hachiman MC (and Oregairu is already a highly overrated series). The dialogue is the only thing saving this series but it's still average at best, and the only people hyping this up are the ones already easily manipulated by melodramatic light novel tropes.

Don't worry, a not so spoiler spoiler is that despite this show does seems to have a typical harem potential line, it's actually a pure love story in core and that the MC is really dedicated to this relationship, so even though there will be other girls comes in and even being attracted to him, he stays loyal to Mai all along throughout the story.
