On rewatch, I shat my pants when the bearded watashi walked into his room because *spoilers*. I forgot that even happened.

Knew there were multiple Watashi all from different universes,seems there's only one Ozu though.

Extremely strong episode. Reminiscent of the Pyramid Scheme in NHK. The analysis of the symbolism by posters such as physics223 is informative, well thought out, and frankly quite impressive.

The part where the people were gassed and started hugging and crying after venting out all of their frustration was so unsettling and hilarious. I wish I could remember the name of it, but it reminds me of a program in high school where they would gather all of the incoming freshmen and make them participate in an extremely corny anti-bullying program. I remember we watched a video on it and it was like all of these high school students crying in each other's arms going "No more bullying! No more hate!" and it almost looked like a cult of peace.

hmm... not much Akashi and not much Master made this episode a little underwhelming to me, but it was still interesting nonetheless.
It's especially interesting that they showed Ozu in drag again like he was in the first episode.
I'm now wondering if each episode is taking place in an alternate dimension like I first through... or if each story is linked together somehow... but out of order.
Really hope they explain everything by the end, but even if they don't, I'm still enjoying the characters and the things they get up to each episode.

this was good but not as funny as the last. It was like that NHK ep about the multi-level marketing schemes.
ozu does look less frightening as a girl, sick
very little akashi...:( also the master not around much, I guess thats why i'm bummed.

Yep, and Kingsman.
Looks like things are finally starting to wrap up.

The members of the Softball club... nightmare fuel
I thought things would turn out better for Watashi but it's only getting worse 0_0

Awesome episode
That whole moment where they all said what they truly thought of each other was literally just like (Potential Neon Genesis Evangelion Spoilers)

Very funny episode

Strong lack of Akashi. I've never been a fan of cult episodes so this one wasn't very entertaining.

Ozu in Yukata ^^ Sexy !!!!

I know this is really old but I think he meant that if the difference is less than 1% (aka, if it is like 99,64%), then it can be advertised as 100%.

Now it's a softball cult...this show is getting too oddball.

It feels like a sludge to get through, but maybe it's just these last 2 episodes I didn't like.

So far on my journey of this episodic anime:

Episode 1 = Very fun

Episode 2 = Very fun

Episode 3 = Very fun

Episode 4 = Bored. The episodic repetitive stuff not good now.

Episode 5 = Bored. The episodic repetitive stuff not good now.

Anyone else realize that when Ozu runs off in woman's clothing, he's heading to the bridge at the end of episode 1? Perhaps in a future episode it'll be revealed why he put them on in the first place.

It seems to me like Ozu has only 1 existence which Watashi has many...
wow, very nice catch. Dang, how do people get these?

I'd say as the show goes on the individual episodes aren't getting more entertaining, but the overall mystery of what's going on is getting really interesting.
Like I'm not sure if I entirely get the point of the whole Honkawa / bee group thing, besides maybe some vague ideas like people trying to be happy all the time are fake or something

I read through all the posts in this thread as well as the linked blogs and people manage to pull out the 4.5 tatami mat theory and all the other small details is pretty amazing

Well I did notice that some elements were re-used between episodes before, and it was very prominent in this episode. I noticed a lot more details like the globe that Master uses to stick pins in.

So that guy at the end was Watashi right? So I think the popular theory of there being multiple parallel universes seems about right, but the post I quoted above suggests maybe Ozu is constant. Interesting...then maybe the other significant characters are as well? idk

Anyway...things are moving forward for sure. Most notably since Watashi finally blames himself, and also because fucking tons of theories suddenly popped up as well. As always, looking forward to more :^)
