This is one great episode. I like this show very much. I love how Kaoru is not a pathetic whimp like some main male characters out there.

Oh so much fun I am so glad I pick it up. These three reminds me off xxxHolic; Watanuki, Doumeki, Himawari = Nishimi, Sentarou, Ritsuko.

Jeez childhood friend girls in anime never work out, so long love triangle.

Loving this already :) Which is too bad since I have exams coming up and I should be studying, not jamming in the basement.
Wait, what? It was them playing? Couldn't tell, I was too immersed :P

By the way, the art style seems like something between Kimi ni Todoke and Saraiya Gojou...anyone else think that?

Spot-on. I was surprised to find out that after what only seemed to be a moment I was already halfway through the episode. Incredible.
I agree).

Rarely does an anime make me smile, therefore I conclude that this one is quality stuff.

0.o... I somehow feel like this is gonna be one of those persistent unrequited love anime where their characters are all their just all love the wrong person. Not that I mind, tbh I just hope they start playing some Latin Jazz or funk, don't really like most other types of Jazz too much, especially old fashion jazz you get in the elevator.

The place they went on diving plus seeing few islands from behind, it looks like it's from hundred islands.

Really? Personally i thought that the show so far has looked kinda ugly most of the time. The design of the characters look fresh though.

Otherwise i was enjoying until they dropped the j-bomb. I hope they keep that stuff to a minimum.

I agree. The jazz session was just awesome and Sentaro was sleeping in the church! I'm sure this is gonna be a great anime, it has me laughin' up a lot!

Top of the stairs at full that's what you call flying kick. Or is it a drop kick?

Love at first sight. Well she's pretty so can't blame Sentaro. Ri-chan looks like she fancies Jun, poor Kaoru :(

Ritsuko likes Sentarou it was so obvious. I wonder what our MC will do kekeke. And it seems Sentarou fell in love at first sight.

Only seen two episodes but I'm liking this anime so far. The art and animation are OK, and the music isn't bad, either!

2:40 into this episode Kaoru is seen listening to Art Blakey's recording on a Japan-only release Pioneer Vacuum Tube Console. Someone here in the States just scored one in mint condition and posted a picture of it in a Facebook group. My first reaction was "That's the stereo in Kids on the Slope!" Hyper-realistic anime strikes again hits a home run with the ball going into the stands!

This episode went by so quickly, as did the first one. Friends recommended this series but I didn't think it was this good. So, we have a new side character, Sentarou is totally in love.

The OP and ED especially are amazing!

kaoru trying to fight as well made me embarrassed for him. ahh the live session and the cliff diving were my favourite parts.

still hoping that it is actually gay.

Pathetic as it was I'm glad Kaoru decided to "back up" Sentarou in the fight.

Love at first sight huh? Good, now Kaoru might have a chance with Ritsuko.

I wonder if thugs like that are actually common in Japan, just hitting on females like that, forcing the girl to go with a group of guys, disgusting.

As for the episode, fantastic scenes and the live session as Kaoru said it ... was some nice music :)

I loved that drop kick, it was kinda dangerous but nice.
And the live session was great too.

They are Christians, yay! As a Christian, I can't help but love this anime and the characters!
Richie thought he would go on a date, but Sentaro came along too huh?
Well the fanservice wasn't bad, jumping from that high seemed like fun.
We also got a new character introduced in this ep. So it's a friendship of 2 guys and 2 girls.

They've captured the josei - romance genre quite nicely, very relatable. I love the OP as well. 9/10 so far

I am totally in love with this anime already. The live session was amazing, Ricchan's dad rocked the bass and Junichi on the trumpet was just heaven to my ears. I know it sounds stupid but I actually like the love triangle thing. Maybe because I find Sentarou and Kaoru-kun both very likeable characters. Kaoru swimming sideways was hilarious and he is totally in love with Ricchan. She must sense something right?! Guess Sentarou fell in love with Yurika at the end huh. I can't wait for the next episode!

Sentaro saves Nishimi from bullies randomly. Cool action scenes though.

Already a water episode?

Tough guy Jesus-kun Sentaro saves defenseless girl and instantly falls in love.

Decent episode. If they can keep things light, I can see myself liking the anime. But as with the all the music anime I've seen, I can expect the melodrama romances to suffocate it.

Great animation.
