THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Searching for missing girl. Everyone, including Akira is looking for her. Meeting her mother? Yuki told him he was jealous of him for family love. Ended up at father's restaurant an sitting on the chair alone. She was happy that her brother found her.

Akira wanting Haru and his sister to say their truth. Catch "it" (legendary fish?/one of them, who they want to take them away), which it caused trouble in the past. They are afraid of catching it themselves for getting affected (so that time Haru's berserk was getting controlled), so they want help. Akira doesn't want them to do anymore (involving humans).

Father and son talk and watching the dead mom. He plans to renewal the restaurant and let his son make his wish come true. Yuki and gr.ma talk. Yuki not know about family love, but is thankful for gr.ma to be with him. In mushroom like space, Haru and his sister are swimming, thinking. Then he's back to their house. Gr.ma said don't leave without saying anything.

Akira and prince of fish, then Yuki fishing. Haru decided on fishing after all!! They want to be like that forever, and Haru said the world won't end. Haru is trying his best. They are having fun. Yuki won prince of fish. And they are cutting his hair!!

He was trying to fix what sister lost, and she showed. Akira's company not trusting Akira, so higher up sent those Enoshima Dancing ships to the attack Haru even though he reported that he's just a key to danger.

Noooo no no don't come to kill Haru! D: I love him to death omg. *clings* I'm glad Haru's fishing again... he seems to be recovering, though all this "sayonara" talk is grating at me. Haru's not allowed to leave. ;w;

It was really nice seeing Akira in this episode. You can see he's finally getting friendly with the rest of them, and it was great seeing him care about what happened to Haru, considering how cold and suspicious he'd been previously. It's sort of like how I felt about Yuki nearer the beginning--it was great to see him open up.

GUYS HOW DARE YOU CUT NATSUKI'S HAIR though it does suit him. I expected Haru to do a much worse job with those scissors. XD

Akira is definitely my favorite character. This is getting so good, the story has really started to get going now. Becoming a big fan of this show, cannot wait to see what happens to poor Akira and Haru.

Side note: Natsuki's hair is much better now! Now I can see him as a new man that doesn't hit 10-year-old girls anymore! Well done, Haru! Even though I find it suspicious that you happened to have scissors with you...What is this, Nazo no Kanojo X?

I'll have to rewatch, but I think those were the alien dragon's fault, not the Duck company... I mean, they are doing the Enoshima Dancing, not the duck salute. X_D

Dear God, the whole Ducks fleet came, no good will come of this, not to mention Akira is about to get arrested for befriending Haru.

Glad Sakura is safe though.

So, now we know what happened with Haru back then, I wonder if the dragon really does look like a dragon.

Natsuki's short hair style is bad, I don't like it all.

Shit went down in the end, the Duck dudes turned against Akira and the Enoshima dance people reached the shore.

I just love this anime so much, this episode almost made me cry when Yuki was talking about how jealous he was about Natsuki.
And no, Haru ;__; I'm really going to cry if he leaves, and what the fuck with Duck?!
I really can't wait for next episode.

I really really hope nothing bad happens to Haru cuz he's adorable.
This show has really taken a turn and like everyone else is saying, shit got real haha.
I like how Akira is opening up more. I didn't really like him at first but now I do. I hope nothing bad happens to him either aodshfjdsk.

And am I the only one that actually likes Natsuki's hair?

Yuki certainly came a long way to be able to be so outspoken about his feelings even if it was only to his grandmother. He has matured a lot which also applies to Natsuki who seems to have accepted the change he has opposed to so far which is further emphasized by his (forced) new haircut.

Natsuki's new hair isn't as good as the old. But he really looks like his dad now.

Good episode and nice development. Haru and Akira's purpose are revealed, and a new situation is presented. Natsuki's family problems are resolved, and Haru and Akira seem to have found new approaches to their purpose. Akira finally feels like part of the group and Yuki has definitely changed from his awkward self in the beginning of the series. The conversation between Keito and Haru was interesting, and definitely foreshadowing at events to come.

Natsuki's hair lol. That's two anime haircuts i've seen today.

Liked the longer hair of Natsuki's better. Duck doesn't believe Akira, and sent the whole fleet to take haru down, and even his home team comrades within the van are taking him out..it looks like.

Shit got real indeed. Following "Bermuda triangle" in the picture below. Wonder what will happen with this and why is it floating..

wow, so the story gets more serious now. i hope the 4 friends can catch the rogue alien together

it was also really heartwarming to see those 4 fishing together, wishing that they could be like that forever :)
it's sad though because i have a feeling they'll all part ways in the future :/

also, i dont really mind natsuki's haircut, it;; just take time to get used to

especially with DUCK going on the offensive against both haru and the other alien, and akira's lost his power in the group as well trying to save haru

im hoping to expect an action-oriented episode next week

My guess is we're close enough to the end that you don't have to worry about a show without Haru. They moved the plot along quite a bit today so I can see it wrapping up in another two or three episodes.

Auggghhh, I'm dreading this anime's end. I'm hoping Haru and Koko don't come to any harm. :( & Poor Akira, too, I hope he's alright (but I think he'll be ok for whatever reason--just a hunch).

D: Aw man, this is saddening to me too.

On a lighter note, hahah Natsuki's haircut... not liking it as much as the old one, but eh. I'll get used to it.

On the edge of my seat until next Thursday...

This episode was so exciting and kinda sad. I really don't want Haru to go.

Also, I went "Oh shit." when Akira slipped up in front of his boss and said Haru's name. I knew he was in trouble right then.

Honestly, I used to dislike Akira a few episodes ago, but,he's like my second favorite character. He so sweet now, to see that he'd go so far for his friends. Character development at its best~! This series'll probably end up getting a 9 or 8 from me.

Also, I fully support the tapioca/hidden camera theory, and Yuki'll probably save both of them, with Natsuki (I've grown to like his new hairstyle) I fear the worst for Haru though. Considering this is past-tense, it's like the narration's implying Haru's gone/dead

Do not want bad end.

I don't know why but this show is just not my style. I appreciate the way it looks, the character development, and the mystery of the Bermuda Syndrome, but I still don't like the show.
