I always enjoy episodes in Akihabara, somehow. I just love the atmosphere there. =)

The ending was interesting, I'll see what happens next.

The animation in this episode was very bad. Was it on purpose or was there some cheap animation outsourcing going on? It made it hard to keep watching the episode. The character models looked very different. The story wasn't bad though.

I agree. The quality of the animation was not as good as the 2 episodes before this. I hope the rest of the show is not gonna be like this. Although I'll watch it regardless cause the plot is really good.

Well that’s weird; Akihabara is one hell of a place for a hikikomori to be. I can understand him being in the park at night, and maybe hiding behind the bushes in the previous episode, but Akihabara is a pretty big and crowded place. It was a funny episode, animation was off. Great to see how the increasingly perverse Satou acts around the café and in the stores. It’s all obviously heaven for Yamazaki. We will see what happens with his senpai.

And he looked tired as hell in that café. I though it was an impressive scene, that weary look he had, sitting there, watching the outside world.

A maid and a cosplay cafe on the same day. And the trip to the doujinshi shop for the first time is always good.

What, you didn't notice that the heads of the characters consistently changed in shape and detail throughout the entire episode? It was terrible.

what a turnaround from the first two episodes which were, in my opinion, just normal. the last two episodes raised this series from the grave.

Does all that stuff really exist in Japan?

If it does, then being an Otaku is like being a nerdx50!

Funny episode though!

Yeah, its a dream come true. I'm surprised that he wasn't aware of it. Great episode even though the animation was crap.

Hm, this episode let me down a bit.. not the animation, though I noticed it...

There was no real plot-development this time.
It was all about dilly-dallying in Heaven, which is good in its own way, but not what I'd expect from that anime.
It is funny and absurd in its own way, it doesn't need to load the Moe-cannon :'D

It did feel like a big filler, and the animation was, to be blunt, awful.

Hopefully the animation will improve and fillers will be filtered out.

Didn't notice any difference in animation, but maybe because I had to laugh so hard and didn't notice it, because I was rolling on the floor... Get my point?

Btw, I went doing circles with my mouse around this Strike Witches Poster...

"The pride of modern Japanese culture"? I most certainly hope not.

This episode reminded me why I maintain a healthy fear of otaku culture.

Lol, animation sucked but the episode was still pretty awesome. FINALLY, SENPAI COMES BACK! I was just gonna say how I wish we'd see more of her than Masaki ;P
Satou's "idea" is completely overboard ... he's just mashing everything together LOL XD Thought Yamazaki would berate him for being stupid but instead ... well, he draws nice, I guess haha XD

The terrible animation in parts was rad. It just added to the wtf. I am surprised that a neet wouldn't know about Akihabara and porn on the internet, but oh well.

Best part of the ep was the guy singing along to the pururin song in the first shop.

I guess it was obvious that he's senpai was gonna appear anytime soon, I just didn't expect it to be THIS soon.

Great episode, the story is getting good. He met senpai and I wonder if senpai and the other girl will clash or something.

Yamazaki's so hilariously passionate...Girls aren't all that bad. xD Misaki can't be, at least. It's nice to know he and Satou's the awkward guy who shouts in stores over everything exciting. o_e

Revolution the eroge genre by combining every stereo-type ever into nothing that makes sense? Misaki will love this game. :(

The animation was painfully inconsistent. Eek, those faces...

I can sense the upcoming love-triangle, which is a shame because I already dislike the senpai and find her uninsteresting so far.
