Besides the usual teasing of this show, we got some footage of Houjou! She doesn't get much scenes but from her perspective, she is much more conscious about her feelings than other characters.

Mina and her friends are still damn adorable in the show.

This episode is really a good one, as they show Hojou and especially Mano seeing so happy. The ending is really a good one to link with the final episode and upcoming movie. This is the only anime where you have a big stone on your chest. The heart warming moments I am talking about. If you never felt like that then give iia damn try!!!

The Detour mini-arc (plus the extra) in the manga, this was a testing period for Nishikata as he tries to find a reason to tease Takagi as per usual.

And in this case, it's the floor of stairs that goes up to a cliff, and is equally taxing, yet satisfying to reach to see a magnificent, pretty view. Of course, Nishikata wouldn't do this without a game...but Takagi deciphered the place because the place is quite famous for forming couples. Too bad Nishikata you failed on this one...

Of course, other couples attended to this same 415 steps of love, as such with the blushing Houjou and her boyfriend, jealous Mano and Nakai, and the Doyoubi girls (of which Yukari sorely mistook Mina and Sanae's hidden feelings for views and exercise). The boyfriends only live for the views while the girlfriends expect the love confessions. Nishikata, how are you blind that your classmate Nagai is dating Mano?

DVDs, haven't heard a thing about it for years, even more so for renting them. And Nishikata wants nothing but revenge over the Cultural Festival with scaring Takagi, but when he looked at her in the eye, he second-guessed and went safe with his favourite Western genre movie...except that he just spoiled it being too enthusiastic about it. Well, Takagi is also fine by it anyways...except that she was about to confess to him then and there to watch one together.

If there's any indication about this episode's ending...the upcoming movie is a good indication.

This was a nice one, love seeing all the couples of the show going to the same location, the 415 steps. All of them had nice moments, love to see more of Hamaguchi and Houjou, as well as Mano and Nakai, Mano’s VA just sounds so cute as her lol. Of course I also loved the Doyoubi girls going there too. The last bit where they exchanged DVDs was nice too, Nishikata casually spoiling the movie he got her was funny, although that’s a bad habit to have lol. And looks like they’re both going to see the anime movie now, looking forward to that.

Had a huge ass smile on my face the whole time again.

We got 4 step scenes, when Takagi and Nishikata went there, Nishikata just ended up getting teased lmao.

Hojou and Hamaguchi one was super fun, they both were thinking the same thing but couldn't act out of embarassment haha.

Mano and Nakai's was the best, wholesome af, Mano was worried that Nakai doesn't actually love her because he was being so casual about it but turns out he already wrote her name in the notebook (๑>◡<๑)

We got the trio as well and it was fun seeing Yukari get excited about finally getting to talk about romance life of Mina and Sanae lmao, but they just climbed the stairs for exercise haha.

It was nice to see Takagi herself invite Nishiakata for that 100% UL couple thingy, also what did she mean by this?
Was she talking about asking out Nishikata in person?

Great episode overall, we might get to see Nishikata and Takagi go on a movie date in next episode.

I'm worried about when they are gonna get together, considering this is going to be the final season and it is close to ending and they are still not together. Gotta have to wait till movie?

Anyway, 5/5 episode and looking forward to next one.

I loved the episode.
It was so nice to see the different points of view down the stairs of "The 415 steps of sweet love."
Nishikata and Takagi...someday they will go back there, The Hojou and Hamaguchi thing was funny, The Nakai and Mano part was really cute <3!!! and the girls thing...only Yukari knew the legend of that place xD
And the thing when they are exchanging the DVDs, first Nishikata...DON'T TELL EVERYTHING, still Takagi will watch the movie. And second, it seems that they are going to the cinema together, interesting.

Something happened in this episode that I did not expect. I can't believe I'm saying this, but... I- uh, really do NOT care about the other characters outside of the two. I feel like I've tolerated them up to this point but I realized how often I paused to do other stuff when other characters are on screen. As soon as the "Rental DVD" segment came on, I fully enjoyed the episode the rest of the way. I hope I change my mind about this as the supporting cast take up 40% of the screen time.

The first half was a bunch of different character's perspectives and how would their story be while I was reviewing it, I didn't like how Nishikata's face climbing up the stairs went

The three is still cute even though Mina and Sanae doesn't have a clue what Yukari was pertaining

Takagi's face when she got spoiled is like me in a way when I got spoiled in every way possible.

Once again, anime original content managed to fit into the plot without botching the original. I think it's good for the anime to include the entire chapter "415 stairs" in 1 episode so that the context of the chapter is conveyed well, and also closes with a build-up for the next episode.

For those of you who read manga / want to know my thought about it:

Yes, I think it refers to her code with the second movie title "Let's Watch it Together", she can't said it bluntly, so put it as a code (by proposing to recommend 1 more movie, so it's not really obvious)

I really enjoyed the four different perspectives of the stairs segment, with Nishikata's being a good old classic of him trying, and failing as usual, to beat Takagi in a contest. Nakai gets even more respect from me with his trip up towards the top with his girlfriend, Mano. It was a really sweet moment between the two. =)

The DVD segment was amusing as well, especially when Nishikata flat out spoiled the entire movie's plot to Takagi before he realised what he just did. Despite that, Takagi still wanted to watch it since he chose the movie for her.

Towards the end of the episode, Takagi sent a picture of the 100% UL series to Nishikata, as a way to say that she wanted to go and see the movie with him, with the second movie disc's title that Nishikata had confirming what she wanted to say to him in person, but couldn't muster up the courage to do so.

I can't wait to see their trip to the movies now! ^_^

A balanced episode. All the couples are making their appearances and it's funny and wholesomely heartwarming to see them all together experiencing the famous '415 stairs shrine' lol.

First, it's Nishikata and Takagi which started because Nishikata brings her there for a contest and only ends up with him feeling embarrassed for not even knowing about the legend. But it's actually because he knew about the total amount of stairs from Nakai.
Second, we have Hojo and I forgot the name lol, but I hope they could get more screen time as well despite being side characters, they're as passive-aggressive as always here and it's hilarious.
Third, we got the classic Nakai and Mano. They're already a couple and instead of a funny comedy it's very wholesome to see their scene. Nakai had written her name when he came there before without Mano knowing it.

Lastly, the DVD renting scene makes me bite my fingers while embracing the cuteness of those two. Nishikata was going to use the DVD swap opportunity to contest her yet changed his mine after seeing how Takagi actually looked thru on what she was going to give to him. In the end Takagi gave him the second DVD which is basically an invitation to watch 100% UL together with Nishikata. I totally liked the writing and idea goes here. We were made curious about the second DVD Takagi gave him at first.
Rants and possibly reviewing shows I have watched.

The 415 steps segments were all pretty fun in different ways, the one with Houjou probably the most so as we don't really get much of her in the show anymore. And the low-key flirting between Takagi and Nishikata when renting DVDs (what is this, 2005?) was great too.

And next week they're gonna act as a couple for 100% Unrequited Love. That'll be fun, no doubt about it.

Didn't got a space to say this last week, but this current ED is the best one so far this season. Anything else that is the best, well this episode!

Ah the Yoikoi stairway, and the ways it affected our 3 couples plus our lovely trio. Nakai and Mano sure are cute together, our boy do have some guts to surprise his girl like that, bonus points for him. Also Hojo and her BF is still somewhat cold together, hope they warm up slowly.

And then finally, the DVD scene, wow that was cute. We finally know how Takagi operates, and it's by courage. But it looks like she has voiced out her frustation in that specific moment, finally fleshing her out. Also did Nishikata just accepted Takagi's invitation to her house, if it is then LETS GO!!!

Lesssssgoooo!

The stairs chapters were also really good in the manga, so I was glad to see it animated. Moto really hits different when you hear Takagi say things like "I want you to bring me here again".

More Hamaguchi and Hojo action. I like that we're seeing more of the honest Hojo. I find her and Hamaguchi more interesting than Mano and Nakai. There's a very specific manga chapter with the two of them that I wanna see animated. IYKYK (think tempura).

These anime only events do be hitting hard. Very excited to see where this Christmas movie date is going. It does seem like the movie will mark the end of the Takagi anime, and I'm okay with that. I think it's time the manga follows suit. I'd still love to see a high school Takagi and Nishikata with more overtly romantic teasing.

The 415 stairs of love was really satisfying. Got to see different couples' side and the cutest among them was Houjou and Hamaguchi. The part of the trio besties is entertaining as well. Someone, just ask Yukari out lmao.

The rental dvd part's the most amazing. Takagi got big brains out there bringing up to provide another movie suggestion and picked a movie entitled "Let's Watch It Together", supposedly as invitation to Nishikata about the 100% UL movie. Takagi's so clever there!

Wow, Takagi really admitted that to herself. That's the first time we've seen that

Nishikita immediately replying to Takagi's text with no hesitation is extremely underrated. How many times in texting scenes in anime do we see them debating what to say, writing something other than what they wanted to say, or even chickening out entirely and not replying at all. And now here we have Nishikita just straight up respond "yes" to Takagi. He is already more ballsy than 90% of rom-com mc's.

Late comer here. I believe that this sentence is one of the most defining description of Takagi's behaviour.
She says that she often lacks courage when an opportunity arises, and I believe she means by this that every time she tries to express feelings to Nachikata, and there has been many in the manga, she somehow backs off and turns it into a teasing, not allowing herself to go any further. It has become a way for her to hide her own embarrassment more than an actual systematic will to make fun of him. Best defense is attacking, basically.
And this frame is one of the few places where she admits it to herself in our presence.
I like very much this side of her, it shows that she's in her way also very insecure.
