THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The annoying girl wanting Four Season poster, but it's not available and gave Gundam? poster instead is lol~

Because of the rain, the quiet girl got sick, and saw illusion of a whale. While parents are out, the annoying girl are caring her. lol @ wanting to use that for wish, too.

The tennis pair meeting sempai. They offered them to have practice match with the enemy team. After receiving the text, they are leaving them alone. The quiet girl is talkative when that annoying girl is around. They are talking about Four Season. Then imagination of Four Stars.

After that, the quiet girl got well and annoying girl became sick. Quiet girl ended up hanging out with other two. Then she went to confirm about the poster being delivered.

Annoying girl is actually a nice girl for caring about everyone in the group. The whale thing is why all 4 of them got together. They are thinking of her, so they are wishing for her to get well. In result, she is well, not 100 % though. And all of them saw the whale!

Next ep. is the practice match!

That was a cute episode. Rin&Yuka OTP :D

Also, I knew from the beginning Yuka would catch a cold XD

Fourth grader Rin and the whale were the highlights of this episode and I enjoyed the scenes with Yuka and Rin but the rest was forgettable.

I like Rin a whole lot more now. She looked so adorable as a 4th grader and its cute that she say see a whale when she is sick.

Yuka's sister is over cautious.

Well, I don't see whales, and I don't have to be sick, but...

Anyway, I thought it was a good episode. It fit nicely with the story line so far.

It was a nice episode, but I thought all episodes were going to be focused on a "miracle" from the stone. Either way, it was really enjoyable. This series is becoming more and more a favorite of my wife and I.

lol whales? don't do drugs, kids

yuka's extreme love of four season is really hilarious.
i like where she pauses the concert videos at the most useless moments and claims them as her favorite part, and then dancing along with them like a little kid. gotta love her spirit

damn, i thought the story was heading into some kind of drama when yuka got sick. quarantined, not picking up her phone, but it was heartwarming when she came back just as annoying as ever (in a good way)

this show is really growing on me more with every episode

Quite the noticeable drop in animation quality. Enough to be distracting.
I was hoping for more of the rock trolling the girls. Last episode with the body switching was quite fun to watch.

I still liked the Rin and Yuka scenes.
However, it looks like they are not going to resolve the whole "Saki is leaving town" till the end. Kind of strange to bring it up on the first episode, make a giant deal of it and then leaving it aside.

Rin-chan's gayness towards Yuka is a miracle of the universe (no pun intended). A satisfying episode 4/5.

Alright even though the animation for this series is horrible (and it's a Sunrise production), I have to give it credit for the plot, which is fairly interesting. As a yuri fan, I'm now officially shipping Yuuka and Rin as of this episode.

Sigh, I was hoping this would be as surprisingly good as the fourth episode, but I guess another good episode would be too much to ask for. Guess it's back to the shitty episodes with lots of QUALITY again, like the first 3 episodes.

no, they're not.. if you look closely, it always gets brought up time to time and seeing some subtle reactions from Saki and even the other girls means that it is still a big issue, just something that they don't need to face now, but are always aware of.. why do you think they're concerned with spending more time together as much as possible? all this minimal build up is investment for when the time has come and it is needed..

you must realize that the rock is not necessarily all-powerful and benevolent enough to help each and every wish.. also, wishing for something as dire as making my friend not move away might lock her in position (she can't move away from the very place she's staying at), or something bad might happen to her dad/mom or whoever's responsible for them moving.. with the way this rock does its wish granting, i wouldn't exactly want to trust it.. and sometimes it just won't grant them too..

no rock trolling this episode means that it's a break to see more of the backgrounds of these girls.. not as exciting, fun or lesson giving as the previous episodes but it is nice nonetheless..

All overreacting over a cold like usual. Well I guess hallucinating and seeing a whale is an exception. :P

Is it me or did the art look a little worse this time around?

Probably the most normal episode yet. No crazy wishing shenanigans this time, just good old slice-of-life, and some backstory about how their friendship all began. I did notice some animation quality issues for this episode, though.

The poster that looks like Gundam 00. That's the reason why this anime was made by same director (Mizushima Seiji) & same producer (Sunrise).

Certainly a disappointment compared to the previous ep but that was to be expected.

Seems like every time I watch this, I forget that Saki is moving away. That's probably why its repeated every week. Oh well, I'm glad they're making use of the limited time they have together then.

The way they keep reminding us Saki is getting closer to moving away makes me sad, looking forward to seeing what happens with this at the end.

Yuka wasn't as annoying this episode, cool. It was nice to see how they all became friends in the first place. Lol everything started with Rin being all high and seeing imaginary whales. They sure were cute and sweet as little kids.

Also whales when you're sick? CUTE, would love that. <3

I like this poster with mecha. I dunno what she wanted. >________<''

Anyway, I guess that Saki won't leave the town.
Why?
Cause it's too light series with moe girls doing cute things, so her friends won't let her leave them. It will be probably "very sad scene" but she won't leave.
That's what I think.

I'm disappointed, this was so random and stupid.
Seriously, a whale? Can't they think of something original?
Will watch next episode, it'll probably get better again.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

This episode was wonderful! I love Rin and here flying whale! I love that the girls defending her when she blurted out something weird in class is how they all became best buddies, and I love the way that the relationships between the four are being peeled back for us to inspect as the show goes on. Rin is obviously deep in sisterly love, if not a more extreme version of yuri, with Yuka. It was made fairly clear that Natsumi's preference is also a bit on the yuri side, and that Saki is the main object of her affection (in addition to one of the members of the Four Seasons). Saki is probably in the same boat, rowing the same direction.

I also just love shows where friends or lovers take care of a sick loved one! They are always so sweet! I do get tired of the "got caught in the rain and therefore I have a cold" crap. (Rain does not cause illness, people! Viruses and bacteria cause illness!) But it is a common failing, so I can overlook it. (Heck, MGX used it too, and I love that show!)
