Kaguya helping out Ishigami with his studying was really cool. I liked how she stuck up for him when he was getting shit talked by those two girls in the library.

First half was great, Shirogane Kei is cool and it is interesting the personality 180 when it comes to her brother Miyuki. The finals mind games were great, glad my boy Shirogane kept is 1st place on the boards.

Overall my favorite episode so far, funny first part and a touching ending
Nothing triggers a Rem fan like explaining how Emilia is better in every way

So some people say this chapter is from chapter 55. I do read the manga but I couldn't remember which chapter is which, because you know, it's not a timeline based manga but pieces of chunks of their daily lives. My question is, does the studio skipped THAT much? I know the production team have done an immense job in adapting the series, they make this anime to be "more timeline based" and it kinda flows naturally and I'm good with that.

My concern is that they are planning to END this anime in ONLY one cour with "THAT" scene, you know manga readers, the scene that happened recently in the manga, as the Grand Finale. If that does happen, I'm afraid we won't get another sequel. And that might make me sad, because this is one of my favorite series.......
don't worry, this season ends with
, they just adapted 55 cause it can relate to the 2nd part of this episode.


I see... That's reassuring. And that arc is pretty good as well as the finale.

It's a one time thing, next week is ch 33-34-35, some people have theorized why they skipped for this chapter and it was related to
there's basically no way they skip that much to get to the latest manga chapter, there is too much development missing to skip until there it won't make sense.

If you're scared just read the thread about upcoming manga chapter that will be adapted, it get updated every week so we can know what is gonna be adapted.


Where can I get the info though?

In the Kaguya forum there's a thread called "All chapters that are and will be adapted in Kaguya (In order)"
Here's the link

In there we take out info from the official kaguya website that where they update every week which chapter will be adapted, that why we know that ep 9 will adapt ch 33-34-35.

In the thread they also mention which chapter was skipped and will not be adapted but I'm not sure where that info comes from, someone mentioned how unadapted chapter become free on a website.

Great episode!

Kei, Miyuki's imouto gets introduced. She's really cute and Kaguya instantly gets the "I want her to call me Sis complex". Had to be Chika walking in, being best friends with Kei all along. The greeting between the two of them was cute! So was Kaguya's face after witnessing all that.

It hasn't been shown often yet but Kaguya really cares about the council members. The time she spend teaching Ishigami was really sweet. Especially standing up for him in the library!
These girls are BEYOND precious!

Ehhh poorest episode so far imo. New little sister character could be fun in the future but the two studying skits just felt like weaker versions of previous eps. First disappointment of season for me.

If you arent enjoying these parts you probably arent gonna be super won over later on, though we are about to get to some of the best chapters coming up with a bit more substance to them past just gags if thats any incentive. Basically lot more stuff like the 3rd part of this ep so if that didnt do anything for yah then that could be a red flag for overall enjoyment.

You meant Chika's sisters, I suppose? They are all of Fujiwara by the way. XD
Referenced from this episode when Papa Shirogane once again mentioned, "Which one? We are all Shirogane." Err... :))
I just realized that all of my favorite characters, beside being stunningly beautiful, are also exceptionally skilled at killing. {×.×}

Kei seems like a fun character and her first interaction with the others resulted in one of the best scene for Kaguya. Her flip from greed to SURE was to die for!!!! Miyuki shadow boxing in the toilet was another one!!.. Also Yuu still remains best boy by far... XD

Ehh, not that good of an episode....

USO DE ARU. This man here is still internally raving about the newest episode!

First part was really good. Not only is it the first time we get to see Kei, but it's also the first time we get to see Daddy Shirogane. Hopefully we get a second season where we get to see some of Daddy Shirogane's antics. Lol, that change in feelings for Fujiwara XD

Second part was hilarious! Ishigami truly lives on the edge. Yay to Shirogane for holding the first spot. Man's so happy, he started shadowboxing for no reason XD

I'm really happy that they decided to do adapt chapter 55 this early on. Within the first season, people will get to see that Ishigami's popularity is not only because of his suicide joke. He gets nicknamed "our guy" for many reasons, and this is one of them. And we also get to see Kaguya care for her kouhai too. After all, the only people that are truly support him are Kaguya and the prez.
Oh man u had me in the first half! I was about to rant about what a great episode this was. Nice meme.

I liked a lot Kei's introduction, she is adorable! Kaguya trying to make familiar relationship with ehr was awesome, funny how Ishigami and Chika ruined her plans, her reactions were priceless, how funny she intantly acept the request to go shoping, after cursing Chika so much!

Exam segment was interesting, everyone is lying, less Chika ahhaha, Miyuki reaction for keeping fisrt place was funny!

Kaguya is awesome when caring for his friends, well done helping Ishigami!

If anime-only guys are wondering, it's a three-parter that gets extended further in the Kaguya-sama universe. You guys will never know if you don't read the manga!

Ishigami doesn't know. Manga readers know.

It was an amazing episode as always, but I personally didn't find it as comedic as other episodes. It was slightly more serious than usual. But then again, it was almost not serious at all

From this point this show won't be as comedic as it was until now. It will be still pretty comedic but with arcs and with actual plot.
I am not disappointed.

you are grossly mischaracterizing the series going foreword, the arcs wont make for more than single episode plots, there is more drama every now and again but in no way is it less comedic with how infrequent they are. There is a more visible continuity but to call it a plot is an overstatement

The series very much is still the same formula as it is now, just more actual developments but its still at the end of the day mostly contained singular chapter gag scenarios.

I never said it stopped being comedic. What I meant is that in early phase the whole purpose of the manga (except in brief moments) was comedy, but after one point, without abandoning the comedy (it's still a romcom after all), the manga has a more serious tone and more plot. It's true that it still has some "only comedy" episodes tho.

Another fantastic episode! So Shirogane has a younger sister, she's so cuteeeeeeeee, i wonder why she was nervous to talk to her? Maybe because she thinks she is very pretty and too adult for her?
I love this anime so much, it has such a unique art, Shinomiya's eyes always look so pretty.

Shinomiya really took care of Ishigami, what a great episode! She was really cute and cared about him and that answer to those girls xD You better not mess with her haha

EDIT: This was the last anime/episode i've seen on masteranime :( Thank you guys! <3

I haven't read the manga but i just know that the studio did well adapting this.

Kaguya facial expressions kill me in every episode i seem to chuckle.

Chika is just being herself! Just goes to show that you could be minding your own business and someone will hate for no reason.

Where did it go wrong? Ishigami looked super clean in the past, he could have changed his attitude but why his looks? I'm sure he would have hit that girlfriend he always complains about not having.
A different direction to the episode, going to something more friendly and caring, stuff like this is welcomed once in a while.

Another good episode. First part where Kaguya failed in winning Kei's trust was hilarious.

I can identify a bit with the second part, I spent a year trying to be the the best of the class and I failed. This is so relatable. Also, Shirogane shadowboxing in the toilet was unexpected hahahaha.

Last part is my favourite. Kaguya’s torture scene was amazing lmao. I'm glad that Ishigami passed his exams.
Life has no meaning.

I love the opening song for sure, the main vocalist sings rlly good n has kinda lowkey sexy voice.
Looks like Kei has internally fallen for Kaguya's charms. Lets see how this develops.
Kaguya tutoring Ishigami n showing how she doesn't care about rumors was a nice humane touch to their relationship. Wonder how much of the 'bad' stuff is Ishigami's delusions though.

The first half makes Kaguya look like a bitch. She bad-mouthed Chika then acts all friendly after she gets invited. What a fucking hypocrite. Makes me wonder if she truly sees her as a friend. Poor, Chika-sama. She is inferior to Chika Fujiwara-sama, the real goddess of this show.

Anyways, it's funny how Kaguya is thinking of marrying Shirogane when in reality wealthy people marry other wealthy people. There are some lesser wealthy people who marry someone from a different socioeconomic background but it rarely turns out well. Most of the time, they struggle with FINANCES and end up divorcing. Yes, this is an anime with a fairy tale-esque plot but if you watch a lot of crime documentaries, many people are willing to kill their richer spouse for money.

Kaguya was way more likable in the second half. She was determined to help out Ishigami even though her expectations were too high. She's a fucking badass bitch when she's defending others and not tearing them down.

It won't happen in this season purely because there are only 3 episodes left PLUS the fifth main character is not listed to appear in the anime who plays a vital role in build up to And Thus Ishigami Closed His Eyes's continuation.

Also, if you follow the conversation below, you'd know it's quite heavy. His past that is.

As expected, it was another fantastic episode.

Ishigami sure had a lot of screentime. The last segment with him and Kaguya was both nice and heartwarming (kind of) to see and not to mention that it also gave more depth to his character, which is always welcome.

I think I just watched my own life. Not really caring much about my grades and giving more time to gaming and procrastinating but when I do study hard, I barely passed lol. That's a real life visualization if I ever saw one

Lastly, include the Fujiwara sisters please ~ Kaguya's reaction to them would be priceless!

It was amazing, with Kei appearance and Kaguya's "Nee-san to be" mission is funny as always, Well this time is Kaguya's turn to be a mom haha, beside the comedic things, i liked some a quite serious skit with great finishing like the reason why Miyuki trying so hard was to be at same place as Kaguya, While the reason Kaguya's teach Ishigami was to made Miyuki didn't get any troubled with his student council duty so i thought it was an awesome episode.
