I used to hate him, but since he got alot more appearance in this season, and Momoko seems happy to be with him, I kind of like him now. He also care for Goro alot. The best part is that Momoko still love Honda. But I kind of dislike the fact that she's pregnant again at this age. She's in her late 30 now right? Hope she won't die giving birth

Why do they continue to make women out to be so frail? That bugs me more than anything.

Man did Goro do a number on the director.

Also why do I get a very bad feeling from the new director and the scholarship team?

Haha! The director was trembling when he catched Goro's pitch! "NOW DIRECTOR, YOU SEE WHAT I'M MADE OF?!!" Ah. I hope he said that at the end XD Goro really don't fail to prove himself!

*facepalm* GOD! Keep yourself together Shimizu.

I really enjoyed the Dream Island training camp. Looking forward for more training eps.

Okay so lemme get this straight. Along with the hundreds of kids they recruit and send to dream island, they also recruit a shit ton of kids on a full scholarship that don't go to the training camp? What's the point of having those kids not also go to the training camp? Unless you are saying they are all better than the second and third years. For that matter, how large is their baseball club? I would imagine with that many students they have the potential for a club of like 400-600 students, that is a little obscene . . .

the music got unnecessarily loud and obvious occasionally, and the animations reduced in quality, but overall great ep

I really like the sharpness of Toshi-kun, he noticed something was fishy right away. And that woman's mellifluous voice is getting on my nerves.

Good point.

That's kinda funny. I mean, you think a maried couple shouldn't have sex because she once loved that man who is now dead? Life isn't as pure as that, humans have sexual needs, they have to fuck from time to time, masturbate or whatever. Her being pregnant simply mean that she want to have kids, otherwise, they have probably fucked a lot of time, on the pill or with a condom. That's just life :|
And, you know, it's a bit sad to say, but Shigeharu and Momoko never actually became a ''real couple''. They were about to officilaize it when he died, soooo...

Goro is so dense, that even Shingo notice Shimizu feeling. MFW a kid is more aware in love matter than his 10+ years older brother.

That new situation is totally fishy. That new place is too ''heavenly'' to be true. Toshiya hit the nail, but I think there is something more.

Not sure what you two are talking about.

Shimizu kicks ass and only shows a weak side to Goro because she likes him, Ryoko (Yokohama's pitcher from S1) still plays baseball in high school with boys, and this new director is probably faking her friendliness due to how sketchy it seems (not to mention the "ceremony" she's holding involves a match against full scholarship students). The only one female that comes out as fragile would be Monoko but she can be pretty tough with Goro when required.

A better question would be why people keep saying females in an anime are portrayed as fragile/too girly whenever there's a lack of a very tomboyish, masculine or abusive/tsun female character.

He's going to have another little brother.
He's still oblivious about Shimizu's feelings.
They will have to play a game now, let's see if they can win.

Did you not pay attention to the previous episodes? All players that were scouted were ranked according to their abilities, so the one that went to the Dream Island was the worst batch. I mean, Kaido was supposed to have the best players, yet all on Dream Island were pretty mediocre compared to Goro.

I hate hospitals in this show so much. For a second I was scared of something happening to Momoko. He already lost two parents, he doesn't deserve losing yet another one, especially since his current parents are as good as his birth parents.

So this is where Gorou would have been had he accepted the scholarship. I think it would he exceptionally naive to assume they haven't been put under intense training as well.

Like others, I didn't and don't buy the "heavenly" facade of this place. As soon as they got off the bus it was obvious the woman was acting... shady. Plus, the director at Dream Island said the people above them weren't as kind.

With the way everything is going, I'm guessing the rest of the season will be devoted to getting Gorou and Toshiya on Kaidou's regular team.

Btw, everyone here who's acting like Shigeno and Momoka having sex/kids is wrong is ridiculous.

Was super worried about Hoshino,but luckily she's just pregnant,lol.

Away from Dream Island a different kind of hell is awaiting Gorou and the others,the ones who're slacking off are going to be punished, makes sense and seperates the o ambitious ones from the ones who're just there to keep the status quo.

Really exited to see how they're going to match against the scholar students.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

I dislike that manager girl... lets see whats going to happen at that luxury place.
My only regret is having regrets!
