THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
a new graduate student character arrives named Yamamoto. kinda hard to put my finger on what role she is supposed to have. a threat? a comedic character? mangaka's self-insert? guess we'll find out later on

tfw you ship the supporting cast pair more than the main duo

Seems the one invention that the lab's leader needs is a durable alarm clock. When faced with the intellect of Ayame and Yukimura though i guess its understandable to feel inadequate. Despite her words looks like Ena was fearful that Kosuke would leave after all. Hmm collecting saliva to get the hormones sure is some high level stuff in relation to their experiment. Ayame's determination to erase the vid of her drunk self though was pretty amusing. As was the disclaimer. To think that a graduate of the lab will end up becoming a manga artist though. Still her personality is rather interesting given the two sides of it. Overall an excellent ep as always that did well to expand Ena and Kousuke's characters while also introducing a rather curious new character in the form of Arika. Curious to see how the training camp will go given the new girl's nature.

If the mangaka woman is gonna force them to be more romantic then I definitely like her haha That said, Ibarada seems wary of her which is alarming...

That scene where Himuro and Yukimura were hugging was hilarious and Rikekuma's lesson on Oxytocin was amazing haha

The ED should really be the OP of this show , it's too fucking good. So we got a new girl on the scene and things are about to get meta af with the mangaka literally self inserting lol. Instead of questioning the whole manga situation, they're just excited to get more data.

I wish this show wasn't so underrated, picked up the manga last week and looking forward to starting it. Such a fun and relaxing story. Also nice to see romance take place in a grad school environment for once instead of HS. Relatable.

When you think this anime couldn't be more illogical they introduced a new character who is a science lab alumnus somehow ended up becoming a mangaka.

Wut???

This is going to be more chaotically hilarious with the addition of Ikeda Lab Alumnus Manga Artist Yamamoto Arika!
that happiness face of Ibarada @ scene [07:55] is such kira kira gloriousness!
5/5.

New girl just seemed evil asf, as if to sabotage the entire operation. Whilst having a laugh making a manga.

You know the idea of using an algorithm to find the true ending the quickest is basically a shortest path algorithm on some type of graph. I can already come up with a few ways to relate the two so it'd probably be an interesting project. Also this show is going meta on us.

As the science group prepares for their trip to Okinawa, Inukai gets an idea for his thesis, while Yukimura and Himuro get a hilarious oxytocin moment. It has to be seen to be believed! They must also deal with the arrival of Yamamoto, who will likely make things even more interesting than they already are for the science group. Sorry, Kanade, looks like you're still the only normal person in the lab. With the trip to Okinawa coming up, I'm really looking forward to see what happens next.

Not going to lie, it's amusing how they keep dropping the delayed embarassment bombs.

Also, whatever streaming site took this anime, they're airing weekly title that was aired in entirety at once, and still can't be fucking arsed to typeset it? It's straight up atrocious, and almost unwatchable at some points without taking a peek at manga scans.

Kousuke got the best research ever. Ibadara's reaction after he say that about the lab was priceless.
Next we have the beach episode.XD

Haha, this came across my mind as well. I'm sure there are people who get their masters and end up doing something entirely different. But this is definitely an unusual path.

What the hell, Torasuke! Please be diligent in your work...and instead Head Prof Ikeda gives him the proper topic of combatting everyday stuff with science topics, but for a start, his own self-interest. Damn, he and Ibarada should start to be like Yukimura and Himuro.

In any other case, the duo's research on oxytocin is legit enough as a base hormone of the body. But the party the last episode pretty much screwed them up while data is immensely available.

To make things better (or worse), an alumnus descends, and quote-unquote, mangaka Yamamoto (get the reference of the author of this series?). The funny parts are still the banter between the men and ladies, but to tell this to a regular person, it becomes even funnier.

Next episode, summer camp!

Ibarada was cute.

Of course, whenever she was not giving the new character the glare of death. There ought to be quite a backstory to that.

No more smooth sailing from this point on, I suppoose.

well it finally reached the recent translated chapter from the source(18/19) ...

aha... science methodology in game :D
nice idea came from professor Ikeda, using Kosuke's favorites things to attract and encourage him doing his research ( np-hard on Eroge/Galge tho XD reminding me of some shortest path alogirthm, and chaos theory one football kick), that cute KosukexIbarada moments :D.

the saliva's and oxytoxin's thingy seems orignal, didn't found it in the source IIRC, well that Oxytoxin blast tho and daym YukimuraxHimuro were freaking adorable when hugging each other and ends up exploding in embarassment hahaha.

and finally, the new character a.k.a representation of the mangaka himself LOL ( i just realized both of them share same last name, Yamamoto)

I wonder how she'll spice up the YukimuraxHimuro and others day in the Summer Camp as her precious reference on her manga( well, it quite funny remembering how the actual mangaka, Yamamoto-Sensei as her reference person)

Can't wait for the Summer Festival in the next episode >_<

So with you on the grad school romance part! Seeing it always be some high school setting gets tiresome after a while. :/

Damn, now there's two couples I want to root for. I don't want this anime to end - it's anime of the season rn for me

We don't know what kind of people we truly are until the moment before our deaths.
As death comes to embrace you, you will realise what you are.
That's what death is, don't you think?

A summer trip to Okinawa? That's bound to be interesting in more ways than one. I can't say I like this new girl; she seems rather sketchy.

Lol. That Mangaka seems bad news based on Ibarada's expression. Our little senpai has one heck of a smile. I wonder if we'll see more progress into their pairing. Also at Yukimura not deleting Himuro's drunk confession scene is hilarious. Too fun to watch.

I really didn't need to see the bear poking the bodybuilder's nipple...dammit science.

Man the author of this series, Alfred Yamamoto, really was desperate to research love considering he just self-inserted female version of himself into the story. Well time for beach episode!

I don't quite like this new character Arika, and after finishing this series that feeling got reinforced.

I just like another character for the sake of it, or a way for the mangaka to introduce herself into the world as a plot tool when needed. Still, she can be erased from any episode and it the story could work w/o her and it would be better for it.

this anime gets better and better,
torasuke is making a study into VNs best ending routes, main couple has fun hugging like it's the end of the world, a random mangaka appears that apparently was an alumnus at a science lab, of course, she even wears the mangaka cap because cliche, and now she wants to make a manga out of this couple which is the exact story of the manga that is being adapted for us viewers, then an ecchi fanservice episode in Okinawa
5/5 this episode
