Kind of a strange order of events. Went from being pushed down stairs by a girl to loving that same girl.

Well, one thing, did Yuuko have a twin sister!?

Right at the end, in that picture, I saw TWO Yuukos!

So...instead of the 'evil Yuuko' being something Yuuko created, could it be her twin sister who's taking on everything for her?

it look like either Yuuko or shadow Yuuko must have amnesia at one time.

Remember guys, gropes your girlfriend before she has the chance to go amnesia, that way you will know how deal with it when she has one. Effective, less time consuming and no crappy drama.

Kirie did mention that her grandmother was Yuukos twin... At least in the manga they said it before this event and the picture was seen so I find it hard to think otherwise...

The breast groping is forgiven for an honest, straightforward, heartfelt confession, something which I've been missing in my romance shows of late.

It's a pity the confession is so situational,requiring a ghost who has amnesia. I'd love to pull off one like that perfectly :P

Too much ecchi, but still such an adorable episode :) No explanations though, so I'm somewhat irritated.

Would've been happier with a more realistic end to things. But then they would've finished it at episode 8. I mean, wouldn't you rather go back to reality instead of further diving into your delusions? You've even got a chick waiting for you on the other side. Well, that's just my thoughts on this so take it with a grain of salt. It is anime after all. Hahh...

even when shadow yuuko possessed the original yuuko, i was so happy to see yuuko slap momoe's hands when she tried feeding teiichi

it showed that she still remembered him deep inside <3

the scene at the end was AMAZING!!!
love how they finally confessed to each other, but no kiss :/

now that shadow yuuko's separated from yuuko again, i cant wait to see how the story turns

I do feel it is a little choppy and rushed, but it was a nice episode overall. Points to Kirie for trying to help Teiichi man up despite what it means to her, points to Momoe for being happy for Teiichi when she realized she lost to Yuuko, and points to the story for having the two main characters confess to each other several episodes before the end.

Damn - got several things running around in my head regarding the relationship between Yuuko, Kirie and Shadow Yuuko. Trying to resist the urge to track down the manga, even if I am aware there are differences.

Well if the manga had a kiss to top off the confession scene that would remove any confusion about what he actually meant (like or love). I was so glad to see that Teiichi came through at the end (not entirely surprised at Yuuko's response since she was so obviously jealous as Teichii was interacting with the other two girls in the previous episode). I was thinking I should bump up the score one more, then I realized I already had it at a ten...

Actually the ending saved the episode as I speant the first half getting progressively more angry at Teiichi and more sad for Yuuko.

Wow after so much shit dealing I can finally watch this fast enough. This episode most likely had the best Kirie x Teiichi ever along with most likely the best moment of Momoe x Teiichi in the following,

Among the many others that this episode richly portrayed. I am not exactly insane over Teiichi x Yuuko but I still prefer over Kirie or Momoe. WHY? Being practical! WTF are you going to do with a ghost? Nothing really. No family. No life due to it being visible mostly to you and some people. Like totally no future but that’s fine if it’s Teiichi’s choice and we certainly cannot tell him nothing as much as we can’t tell nothing to a girl loving a werewolf guy or vampire. Right? I still think it's not the best in his family's interests at the very least.

I won’t say that I agree with everyone on the whole breast groping being all that amazing nor did it flow well with the flowing part,

NOW THAT! That was amazing! That was super well done along with the BGM playing in the background it was superb.

Momoe was so terrific when teasing at the end Teiichi in the spoiler
Those faces and MOE when she figured out it was a love for a ghost.

About the end, just one thing in the spoiler
oh shiiiiiiiit! Shadow Yuuko and this is my question: why does not anybody call the GHOSTBUSTERS? Trap that shit shadow now! GET RID OF IT! It’s making big time shit for Yuuko and it can control her. There is one thing to find a means to store your bad things and all then there is another when the created means takes control of you. Which is what is happening with that shadow. Mind you all that it does not give a rat’s ass of love itself.

However I did come across the twins theory in the spoiler
that picture clearly shows Yuuko with another one girl that looks like her. Hence twins? If so then it would explain as the other one being a twin that encases all the bad shit from Yuuko so as to take her pain away and keep her beauty? Either way GET RID OF THE SHADOW NOW! NOW! Before it becomes too late!

BTW The ED art in the spoiler
so freaked me out. It shows Shadow Yuuko and Yuuko but the shadow is more freaky since it has its eyes totally black.

It would have been epic if they actually made a romantic or dramatic way of Yuuko remembering... It was lame they slacked her remember from him grabbing her boobs.
Maybe its different in the manga?

It's a bit similar but the manga makes it more dark. The thing that kept being repeated by Ghost Yuuko in the manga was that Teiichi touched her breast first. She was overjoyed that someone could feel and interact with her using the other senses. She also was happy that he could see her as she saw herself. The first place he touched her, being her breast, became a major trigger as to who Teiichi was in her eyes, which lead to it being a way for her to regain her memories of him.

I think they should have been more thorough about Shadow Yuuko returning the memories like they did in the manga but I guess that'll lead to a quick ending for this series...

Fantastic episode! The build-up was done very well, and it was great to see them together again. The groping was executed funnily enough not to be annoying. 5/5.

I'm glad the amnesia business came to an end in two episodes. It was pretty good overall, except for a few things. I think Kirie's smacking up some sense to Teiichi lead to some nice moments but some parts of it felt greatly unnatural. Okonogi proved to be a great catalyst towards the end; she's simply great. The weakest moment for me was the actual confession. Teiichi's confession looked a lot like coming from a girl rather than a man. Although it might be his confession and the ultimate weapon (groping) that made Yuuko remember Teiichi, what if she hadn't forgotten about him at all? Maybe she was pretending to have forgotten him, to stay away from him, to prevent further harm. At least that's the impression I got.
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

The rooftop confession scene is finally animated. This was a good episode, though I admit that I liked this part better in the manga. Even so, I can't deny that this episode was a visual treat, especially with that nice artistic touch applied to many of the scenes.

Ghost Yuuko has probably had multiple times of amnesia. If something goes wrong or the people graduate, or she feels enough negative emotions, Shadow Yuuko would have the memories forced on her... To be honest, calling it amnesia is wrong because it only appears to be amnesia while it's really throwing your memories into another container...

Damn now i see why everybody was talking about the manga scene. I thought the anime scene was good until i just read chapter 18 of manga they changed a lot. Now im pretty pissed they didnt do the kiss. They did some other changes but it wasnt plot changing.

considering it didn't let on that the Shadow Yuuko took the memories against Ghost Yuuko's will, it could be plot changing... It also makes Shadow Yuuko look more like a good person when she's really out to do what Kirie says ghosts do, make people suffer as they themselves did.

That was funny.. she remembered everything after he groped her big chest.. haha. But at least they have confessed how they felt with each other.. now, the only thing to resolve is Yuuko's death....

Things to solve in the anime still:
a) What happened those years ago that lead to Ghost Yuuko death?
a.a) What is Shadow Yuuko? We know she holds memories/negative-emotions of Ghost Yuuko but why is she what she is...?
a.b) Who is Ghost Yuuko? It's not 100% that she is Kanoe Yuuko... She does have this `Amnesia` that makes her lose all her memories... perhaps Shadow Yuuko after taking her memories the first time told her she was `Yuuko` in spite

There's more but there's only 4 episodes left so I doubt there's much to explore apart from this.

I think they came up with the characters first and using the characters backgrounds, built up a setting that evolved into a story without restructuring the story after which would have made it more appealing if they had.

Kirie doesn't want or care about discovering the past. She wants Teiichi to stop hanging out with a ghost... She knows there's a connection to her family so she probably wants to get rid of this Shadow Yuuko which may cause her family name trouble...

This was a good episode with Keiichi and Yuuko opening up about their emotions. I liked the art in this one too, it looked better than before for some reason.

That preview really made me wanna see the next episode. A first time feeling for this show, I think..w

Pretty good episode. Twins in the picture? I wonder if that is going to be important later on. This really felt like a last episode until the part after the credits. I really wonder what kind of conclusion this is going to have. Is Yuuko going to disappear and move on to the afterlife at the end?

Everything is important because it happened and can be used as a reference at any point by who knows what character for who knows what reason later. :)
