I lost my mind in this episode, I kept pausing it and screaming hahahaha as we say in my town: ya la trae cacheteando las banquetas LOL but now I'm scared Touko will distant herself from Yuu and if that were to happen my heart will break into pieces.

Could've been a contestant for the series' best episode, instead it became just alright.

Animation was consistently bad from start up until before the last scene. Quite a number of moments were "not in sync" with the voice acting and just looked wrong. Seriously, what a let down.

That last shed moment though was thankfully good enough to save the episode, but itself not enough to be deemed great. At the very least they know which part to put effort it.

Would happily watch the series in BD and see the fixes and improvements which should rightfully give this episode the quality it needs and deserves.

Nice episode, not of my favorites but it was still a good one nevertheless. And although the art felt off for some moments, the scenes were it was most needed didn't disappoint at all. Scenes such as the equipment shed ones and the one where Touko was running were very well handled. Besides, the insert song they used during the race when Yuu was looking at Touko was just great.

Personally, this episode was mostly similar to the previous ones, except for the fact that in this one, Yuu went an step further in realizing her own feelings towards her senpai. Not fully awared of them yet but I would say she's really close. Not to mention that my boy Maki-kun gave her some relief with the talk they had.
And now, I'm really looking forward to seeing the play since the ideas Kanou was mumbling about how to present Touko's character were really according to her persona. Man, if she knew how accurate her description was...

And regarding the last scene with the kiss, I think Touko was pushing some boundaries right there I mean, she expects Yuu to never love her since she "can't" but there's no way Touko can be so oblivious to not have an idea of Yuu starting to have strong feelings for her after that slightly intense kiss.

I love how sweet this anime is on the outside but really unsettling on the inside.
It's like a suspension bridge, when it snaps you drop fast and deep.

I couldn't have said it better. From the outside, Yuu and Touko looked like your average couple with both of them being novice at it but inside their heads... oh man, what a storm is being held in said heads, regarding their intentions, desires and fears. That's why I love so much the insight moments in this show, especially when they come from Yuu's perspective.

HOLY PLOT CLIMAX. Yuu's feet are totally off the ground now, and I'm just afraid she might not even realize it. 10/10 show, 10/10 episode. It's been so long since an anime has evoked such emotion out of me.

^that's how I felt too ^^; not that I'm complaining, the romance is heating up~

Touko hungers for Yuu to "recharge her battery"... o_o

Now, all is needed is Sayaka to catch them kissing...

Man we were blessed this season with shows where the cast has great chemistry/conversations. There's this one, Run with the Wind, Bunny Girl Senpai, and I'm sure others that I'm not watching or just not remembering at the moment but man it just makes the shows so much more engaging when there's good writing and dialogue

Ughhhhhh Yuu continues to be a buzzkill. And it seems Touko would have won the relay if she wasn't daydreaming about Yuu when it was her turn.

Great kiss scenes in this episode, I must say. Of course, that's not (entirely) why i'm watching this series. But it's a nice bonus.

That was a pretty nice moment towards the end and no, not just in a lewd way, in fact, it wasn't even that lewd. Lewd would've been if the tongues were further down...

Anyway, their relationship is further progressing, but getting too close can also create distance.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

I liked the anime up till now but this was the worst episode. Wish they could have kept the kiss a bit more discreet, wasn't expecting them to show their tongues latching.

So I finished Volume 3 which is EXACTLY the same way it was told. This episode covers Chapter 15 and 16 towards the end of Volume 3.

There's really not much difference. The Anime actually added some good things like they added Sayaka's thoughts when she passed the baton to Touko which they didn't have in the manga. As well as Yuu having a flashback when she was about to give the kiss to Touko.

Other than that, it's the same thing! There was a small interlude section with Yuu meeting her old classmates. But that was it.

Here's some chapter end art that didn't got animated.

Here's the closing thoughts from the author Nakatani Nio and special art about everyone's height XD

Volume 4 PV

Can't wait for the start of Volume 4! I Have a feeling it will end at the ending of Volume 4.

Kiss scene at the end was amazing, but it would've been better if they cut out the one at the beginning. When they started kissing before the opening, I honestly thought I skipped an episode since that was the first time they ever did something like that. Great episode nevertheless.

Oh wow, didn't expect a scene like that, but I'm okay with that. Yuu just can't fool anyone, not even herself for much longer.

Passion is the name for it.. And what more can you wish for, right, for it to be love?.. If you also care about person.. If you also find time with him to be enjoyable?..
I guess, I kinda got my answers.. Hanging out, being with another, talking about something, it's really something that can be like here, or anywhere..

Yuu watches Touko run and everything else disappears from her sight. I think its safe to say this is the moment that Yuu realizes how much she loves her. She doesn’t kiss Touko in the shed because she feels like if she doesnt stop herself there, she wont be able to anymore. And if shes not able to stop herself, their relationship will not be the same since Touko doesnt want her to change.

If Yuu notices her own heartbeat at the end, I am sure Touko notices too since her head was on Yuu’s chest. I wonder how she feels about that. She is being very unfair asking Yuu to not love her back but also asking her to initiate a kiss. It is sad how Yuu feels she has to ignore and suppress her feelings and pass them off as nothing to keep their relationship the way it is.....

Just noticed, during the ending theme the string that attaches Yuu and Touko’s cups kind of looks like a hearbeat that increases throughout the ending. Might this be interpreted as Yuu’s heartbeat and the way it increases throughout the anime??

BY FAR MY FAVORITE ANIME IN RECENT MEMORY! I am rooting for the pair so, so, so much! I would be really sad if they don't get together before, or by the end of the series.. Haven't come across a romance this good in a good while..

Very lovely character development I must say, is she starting to realise her true feelings perhaps? Pretty lovely and even rather ecchi ending! Let's see what's next!

Now Yuu is just refusing to believe she's in love with Nanami... I don't blame her though, she's never fallen in love.

That was one heck of an episode. That kiss is the definite highlight, no doubt about it, hands down. The scene of them together is just so beautiful and emotional, I loved every second of it!

Yuu is definitely in love with Touko. Now she's in complete denial of the facts that are obvious. That's your own heart beating!

That intro song stole my heart, really really well-executed, just spot on.
Then the finisher that is the ending~~

Great yuri melt your heart and you are left rilled up, unable to escape all of those mushy feelings.
Superb job with the adaptation so far.
