That was quite the dramatic reaction from Chika to that question. But first time's huh. Hmm thats some protection that her family's been providing Kaguya though. Chika's explanation and Kaguya's reaction was just priceless lol. The ten questions was certainly amusing. I guess there's also a downside to being a noble of Kaguya's standing. Still i do admire Kaguya's attempt to remedy this. Her interaction with the kid was pretty nice as it allowed us to see a kinder side to Kaguya. Its cute in that Kaguya in the end still managed to experience the act of going to school with the president despite the detour. Excellent ep as always. Cute ending theme though.

Absolutely loved the way they fast forwarded through the introduction in this episode.

I figured out Kaguya was mistaken when she said she did it with her new born cousin. After that, I couldn't stop laughing.

The 20 questions part was also quite interesting.

I love how this manga actually pays attention to psychology. Usually, when they label a work as Psychological, it's just blood and gore.

We are already three episodes in, but we still haven't seen the cute black haired guy from the opening. I really want to know who he is. Feels like he'll be really funny.

That ED has better animation and coreography that all the idol shows out there.
Sigh, that was the quality that I was expecting for the ending of Zombieland Saga.

I'm expecting him to only appear around ep 5, i dont recall if any of the chapters adapted next week have him.

Oh My God! What is with this over the top ISO 900000001 QC10000000000 anime production?

It makes me think A-1 is actually in love with this. Perfect adaptation so far aside, the ED was sooooo damn good! Gonna watch it 10 times in a row now!

ps. I swear if anime only followers don't love Kaguya by the end of next episode...

Oh yeah what's the reason for that? Previous episode manga readers gave the excuse of "reference", now what?
It's true that manga has a heavy narration, especially at the beginning, but it's done terribly in the anime. It's way too long and intrusive. Narrator should never speak over characters.

Funny episode, heartwarming too. I never find myself bored with this one.

That ending was something else. I can't tell if it was hand drawn or 3D rendered with a filter to make it look drawn. I hope they keep it as the ED.

Man, each episode gets better and better. It's so much better than the manga. I didn't know that was even possible.
And that ED was awesome, too bad we probably wont get it every episode.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa this is amazing.

Monster virgin adapted was as glorious as it deserved, Kaguya's misundestanding due to her lack of knowledge on those themes was hilarious.

I freaking love the final reaction to the 20Q (10 in this case), Shirogane had so, so many hopes but then he remembered how she is, nice bait there Kaguya.

And the walk part was so, so heartwarming, as adorable as I remembered.

Holy shit that Chika dance in the ED, the animation was so freaking smooth! This anime just keeps surprising me, I'm so blessed.

They went from one epic ED to another epic ED. What a cute dance.

This adaptation has come from the gods. Omata and his staff members are truly worth praising. Not only is it an accurate adaptation, but it's filled with soul. You can tell how much care it put into the anime. It doesn't force itself to be a by-the-book adaptation, allowing for creative additions to the content. In short, directing is godly, the production is amazing.

That fast-forward on the intro scene was great lol. That ED gave me fucking life. I think another 10 years have been added to my lifespan. Interested in seeing how they'll handle the French arc, because it's humor is really restricted by its manga medium. Not sure how funny it can be in an anime format.

This was my favorite episode out of the three, probably because we had parts that were sort of different. The first part while it was still comedy focused, had a different spin on it, not the usual overthinking the main characters do. And the last part was the best out of everything adapted yet imo, I hope we will get more chapters like that.

I was worried this anime would get repetitive soon, but if they change up the "fighting" chapters just like in this episode, there won't be a problem with it for me.


You have no idea what you are in for! Next episode will be a blast! I wish you all the best not to give up waiting for a week and jump straight to reading the manga. They are going to adapt THE chapter that got me in love with Kaguya.

Another awesome episode! i am truly loving this anime!

Kaguya misunderstand about the meaning of "first time" was funny, her reaction after Chika telling her was priceless!

My favourite part was Kaguya and Miyuki's game and is awesome how well Miyuki knew Kaguya, he knew exactly what to answer, Kaguya expressions was really cute! I love that fun couple!

Last part was interesting, we got to know more about her life, even signal to her beautifull maid, her smile at the end when Miyuki give her a ride was perfect!

Awesome ED, didn't expect that coming, but was adorable to see Chika dancing and siging!

Very good example as to why it's important to take a look at the individual staff and then adjust your expectations. Anyone seeing the director and series composition on this project knew that it would be anything but your run of the mill production.

Most likely not since the ED in ep 2 is promoted with its own single release indicating it's the main ED while this new ED is promoted with BD/DVD Vol 1. Would be really nice if we get some more of these exclusive EDs for other volumes.
It'd be neat if president and Ishigami got their own eds but I'm not holding out too much hope. Granted I just want Ishigami to get something extra cause they don't really do much with him early on.


If my intuition is correct the next BD/DVD i.e. vol. 2 would feature a special ending with another girl and the one after that would feature another and so on. My picks are Kei, Hayasaka and Kagura based on the BD/DVD official promo.

WOW I was enjoying the entertaining ep as usual, then it's like HAH take this on for size! That ending caught me on my ass my god! I thought it was gonna be an epilogue sequence or something then gg ending song LOL. Fucking nice.

Tokoya said:
P.S. That ED sequence was GOAT, I felt like I was watching a real person O_O
Because you were... afaik it's rotoscoped or similar.

imo whole anime should be animated that way... would make the acting more involved, natural, artistic; bringing the drawing artist and the motion actor together.

Also, it's not just the great animation, the vocals were very good as well, emotions portrayed very clearly with every line. I love whimsical shit like this.


Edit: what's funny to me, is that although they play Chika up to be the aho, i don't think she's dumb at all really, oblivious at times maybe... Compared to the pretentious idiot duo? Lol yeah she ain't dumb at all XD

That ending theme gave me cavities. Such a fantastic example of rotoscoping done right. Gosh that was cute!!

Beyond that though, another fantastic episode with fast paced humor and hard hitting jokes. This is such a great comedy anime. That first skit in particular had me laughing my heart out. Though the last one was so soft and sweet, and reminded me that even for its ridiculousness, it's also able to pull off some genuine heart.

(That moment where the kid mentions his friend is called Yeti and there's a visual gag of a yeti crossing the street also got a good chuckle out of me. Finally, an anime that lives up to its medium and focuses more on visual storytelling than exposition.)

Digitalexile said:
This is getting really repetitive and formulaic, had the same problem with the manga and honestly don't see what's the hype here. Guess I will just wait a bit when they adapt the "better parts" towards the end as the manga readers say.
I mean, the parts people are hyping up wont come till after the anime (aside from what will be the final episode) so i wouldnt hold your breath. I also would say if you dislike it now then you probably wont be won over later on or antyhing cause still at its heart its a comedy, and even though mindgames end fairly early into its run all things considered its still got the same sense of humor, i would say specifically the 3rd part of the ep is a bit more represenitive of the parts people are referring too albeit more comedic than that, but less mindgames more exploring character's upbringings and trying to experience new things they never got to in the past to varying degrees of success or serious subject matter.


You are wrong here, I m tired of seeing people giving this excuse over and over, NO, not everyone solely putting their hype and expectations on seeing later chapters adated, I have readed till 80, and I never had a problem with the earlier chapters, it is just a matter of how more you see, the more you grow fond of it, that simple.
This season alone has plently of great content yet to be adapted, so stop saying it like it sucks and the manga is only really good later on.

And if someone is finding this boring, just stop it, this show is not for you.
Lets keep this simple, yes it does get better the more you watch, but aside some more serious parts this that people have seen so far, is part of core nature of the series.

Great episode and unexpected ED with Fujiwara!From this season we both have Kaguya and Mob as the example of great adaptation of source material,like so much care put on those two shows by the staff,not to mention other shows that also adapted pretty good!


The Rising of the Shield Hero is another major one you cant forget to adapt to that list of great adaptations, and despite the rush they are doing with Neverland, ep1 surpassed the manga for me.
