Still the best anime out there (except maybe for Chihayafuru & Natsume) and summer's not even started.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Without a doubt the best series this season, and actually the only one to get better by every episode. And as mentioned many times before; the Toradora vibe is strong in this one.

I'm loving how Rinon adds so much with so little. The knife drop, trying on panties, rolling around on cans etc. And then we have Remon with her people skills, she thinks it and it happens. Keikaku doori.

I have no qualms with IchikaxKaito, but man both Tetsurou and Kanna are swell persons and if anything I'd like to see them two hitting it off in case Kaito doesn't hit his head and realises Kanna wants him.

Next weeks episode seems interesting, with the filmshooting starting. Another week's wait, gah.

Hmmmmmmmmmm, am I the only one who worries of Mio in all this? She looks like she knows and holds out a lot inside but yet understands the most Tetsurou of all people.

> He should. Because childhood friend pretty much always loses to new girl in romance. :P

Nani? In 90% cases ossannajimi wins. Especially then protag and "new girl" start dating in the middle of еорук series. So I hope for opposite. i could post a lot of examples ;)

Alright normally i would not say anything about the fact that the steering wheel is on the wrong side in a Japanese car since i know they drive on the wrong side of the road but this time i have to.
The car Manami was driving was Triumph TR5 which is a British car and in the UK they also drive on the wrong side of the road.
So since it's a British car the steering wheel should be on the left side just like in Japanese cars yet in this case it was on the left side.
Speaking of which in Australia they also drive on the wrong side of the road what's it with Islands and driving on the wrong side of the road?


Manami seems like a interesting figure tho she also appears to be spoiled i mean having a intense fight over a episode of a series he deleted.
And even running away isn't that way to childish of a woman of her age.
Seems her husband has his hands full with her.

I also liked the High school of Dead reference making it looks like a movie is a nice idea.

First I didn't understand how they were connected but apparently they are both productions by Sentai Filmworks.

And omg, finally summer begins.

The story is very good and the characters are likable, though Ichika being an alien still ruins it for me. When did she have time to study herself? She's an alien and she's good at English and math already, even tutoring Kaito. Oh anime logic :P

Tetsurou's sister XD
And HOTD haha


This sums it up....

They're right. Kanna is only digging herself deeper by saying Kaito should be there for Ichika. I'm still rooting for Kanna, even though it's a pretty slim chance as always. =(

I love how Ichika got all angry when she saw Kaito with his acquaintance (Tetsurou's sister). She naturally totally misunderstood. Funny seeing them going to Highschool of the Dead. Naturally, it's by the same artist.

Now summer vacation is starting. Shit's about to get real from here on. Hearts will be broken for sure.

Do the characters say Remon instead of Lemon because Japanese people have a problem with saying their 'Ls', or is her nickname really Remon?
Im confused.

Her name 「檸檬」 means Lemon (as in the fruit). Doesn't matter either way.

Your best friend's sister is DTF and you be a prude. Kaito, you're a girly loser man.
Fuck yeah, HotD.

thats SOUNDS all good until your best friend smashes your teeth in because you slept with his MARRIED sister!

I think she was just teasing him for fun.

Yeah I pretty much think that too. Women like her often flirt with guys they have no real interest in to get a response. It makes them feel better about themselves when your acting all awkward around them because they know you find them attractive looking. She feels safe doing this with Kaito cause she knows Kaito won't do anything. If Kaito wanted it to stop he should actually come on to her and say "yes" to a few of her silly flirt moments. The fear in doing that is that she would actually be willing to go all the way. You'd be really fucked if that happens, literally and figuratively.

Another awesome episode. Unfortunately the last couple lines in this episode made me sad because I have a feeling Ichika is gonna have to end up leaving and Kaito will be stuck waiting for her. I love how Tetsurou is rooting for Kanna and Kaito but Kanna is rooting for Ichika and Kaito. I hope Tetsurou and Kanna get together and Kaito and Ichika get together! but then Mio is lonely :(


Yeah the ending narrative does seem a bit troubling. It sounds like we might be in for a ToraDora like ride. I hope there's more than one coupling by the end. There is 4 girls and 2 guys. So, unless we see some unlikely yuri action, there's going to be at least one girl striking out.

I just hope to god there isn't a illness or death among the group. I like them all too much at this point.

And as everyone mentioned, HOTD was funny. xD

But status quo got back? They'll forget the declaration? I sure hope that this summer that will finally comes, the title summer, get things moving now! But this epi was kinda good.

I like Kaito x Kanna too, but I don't think it's going to happen.

Anyway, this episode needed more Remon, but it was fairly enjoyable nonetheless.

I didn't find those looking like tears of sorrow, but rather I'm guessing they're filming, seeing how they sound really overly dramatic as well. Or, Tetsurou charmed the tears out with some sort of pep-talk or even confession ;)

Just marathoned the first 4 episodes and I'm sure liking it a lot more than I had anticipated.
I love Kaito's and Ichika's delusions! All the characters are likeable and I love their interactions so far!
Kaito x Ichika! Ichika and Remon have particularly grown on me.

So far, the setup episodes have been well executed and the creators have done a good job developping the characters, allowing the viewers to invest and attach into them.

Now, the hard part... the execution of then next 8 episodes will determine whether this will be a complete disappointment like AnoHana, or whether will it be my favourite romantic comedy anime.

Side Note: I got burned hard on AnoHana, it was 10 episodes of great buildup and emotional tension and they completely blew the finale... It was 24 minutes of all the characters crying and suddenly unloading why they were all so angsty one after the other like a plot dump... It was, to put it nicely, extremely poorly done... I still cringe at that... AnoHana 11 is the epitome of pure disappointment.

Still IMO Kanna being with Kaito could solve the problem. Do you know what did you just hit? A possible condition that can make Kanna win. If Kaito had to choose between Kanna and seeing Ichika/Ichika but not seeing her again and problem with Kanna, which would he choose? That is the question and complications of it to see.

It does give out a rather nasty consequence. As such the Mr. Mr.A and Ms. B/C was brilliant to be told like that.


Kai being with Kanna does solve the problem but it's a one sided love thing (Kanna likes Kai and Kai doesn't) Then Tetsurou could be with Mio but Mio likes Tetsurou and Tetsurou doesn't. No matter who the characters pick in the end someones gonna be sad or heart broken and hey, we all go through that experience in life. I see Kai and Ichika as the best couple because they both really do like each other even though they deny it. The way I see all these people (Mio, Tetsurou and Kanna) are pushing each other to make two people (Ichika and Kai) who share the same feelings with each other be happy since they won't be able to get with the person they truly like.

If that makes any sense. I honestly have no idea what I just wrote.

It would be interesting indeed to see if it's like that or how much of it is real and not fake.

I agree with you and sadly there may be one girl that is badly hurt in thee end. Suffice to say I cannot wait to see how Ichika is going to overcome her alien part of it.

I like all the characters, but i don't know which pairings I like yet! D:

are you serious. I was crying like a little schoolgirl in that last episode of Ano hana!

you could tell from the halfway point of Ano hana that it was gonna be one of those bittersweet rip your-heart-out-and-stomp-it-in-the-dirt kind of shows.

i put money on the fact that this is gonna have a lot of weepy moments toward the end.

The "Tamiya" reference bring back a lot of good memory from the past.I use to play it very often.

Rinon is very cute today .

I felt like everything I watched is just Prolouge when I watch the ending narration

Tetsurou died next episode? lol I dunno is the true or not.
