Great episode, so Brother Jun got her pregnant?

Also If Sen and Ritsuko get together I will be so annoyed, however that girl who is also doing the knitting is 'hopefully' doing it for Sen thus our MC can be happy :)

Give me more episodes now!

I here by, wholeheartedly ship a ménage à trois between Sen, Ritsuko and Kaoru. We already have Yurika and Jun walking the non-conformist path, the rest might just tag along for shits and giggles.

Wow... so Jun was roped into communism, huh. Well, it looks like his comrade hasn't forgotten about him, and things will probably get even more sticky when things catch up to him.

Also, the relationships in this show are just remarkable.

LOL, poor Sen and Kaoru. They have a really bad timing, every time... (highly ironic for jazz players)

Sadly no jazz this time, just some angry beating.

Another excellent episode!

Jun's flashbacks were very well done. The story is developing exceptionally. This is easily my show of the season.

I think they're actually taking her to a gynecologist to prove if she's still a virgin. Just a guess~


Nice episode. Hope their friendships won't be ruined D:

OMG. THIS SHOW IS WAY TOO GOOD. IT EASILY MATCHES THE GLORY OF STEINS;GATE,or maybe even surpasses it:D so,let me get this straight,Yurika is acting like a slut to Jun,and Jun is taking advantage and i think he's gonna ditch her now to go back to the communist stuff. and NOW SEN REALIZES IT! -.- and ritsuko is switching from her love interest?:s a little rushed but all in all,great character development,great plot and awesome artwork:D i'm clueless to how this series will end..:D

Yes! I spotted Suzumura Kenichi and Sakurai Takahiro in the cast, I have good ears! :D

Poor Sentaro! Heartbroken... :'(
And Yurika's parent are too terrible... >>

It's really quite amazing how they can adapt almost a volume in one episode!

As expected Jun's change isn't the result of a broken heart but rather of guilt for dragging someone in a mess whith a speech he only did on a whim. What a coincidence to see a student uproar getting to play a role here as it was already featured one time this season in Hyouka but it isn't too surprsing considering the time the anime is set in.

It's nice to see Yurika to get moved in the spotlight a bit more. For me she is the most interesting character for now. Once she put her mind in something she's determined to reach her goal. However, it's doubtful if her persistence and faithfulness will pay out in the end having society against her relationship with Jun.

Jeez, a lot happened this episode.

Ritsuko has fallen in love with Kaoru? Her feelings for him definitely changed at least.

We learned about Jun, Yurika cut her hair to express her feelings towards him, they might have had sex, they probably won't get together because of the letter from Arita. The fuck was with Yurika's mom, makes immediately an appointment at the gynaecologist?

Sen cries after seeing Jun and Yurika, hope he recovers soon, Kaoru is a bit of a jerk to him and kinda tells him that there is someone who likes him and he finally gets it, fucking cliffhanger.

God, this show is almost too great.

Crazy awesome episode<3
I'm happy for Yurika and Jun. Her strength can help restore him.

Yesyesyesyes! Finally Sentarou realizes. I'm a big Ri'ko x Sentarou fan so I'm happy :)
I love you Kaoru but please don't butt in! XD

I actually thought that her mom already knew they had sex and she was going to restore her hymen so that she wouldn't be 'impure'. Maybe I'm just weird and looking into it too much XD

The show is great alright, but there's to much change of feelings. Well, I hope Kaoru didn't make a mistake by helping Sentaro realize his feelings. I want to see Kaoru x Ritsuko no matter what! Yurikas parents lol...don't know which one is dumber. Tough luck. Looking forward to next episode.

I don't think Jun took advantage of her as he proved it with his fake assault that was only meant to scare Yurika away. He is still the nice guy he's been like before and he certainly would know how severe it would be for her if it would have been found out that she isn't a virgin anymore thus refraing from doing it in the first place.

Man, I don't even wanna contemplate on what's gonna happen next with Sen, Ri'ko, and Richie. :)))
I'm just gonna leave it all up to them and enjoy the show.
This is good. This show is so damn good. :)


Way to go Jun. You totally have the power to move people, inspire them, whether you want them to or not. :) Yurika's interesting. :) Rebellion be the storm.

I will be so pissed if Riko confeses to Kaoru and he rejects her because "she's in love with Sentaro".

Funny episode :)
so Yurika is going to ruin her life with Comrade Jun - or maybe they already have cute baby coming in (but I think that it's rather to check if she is still a virgin)
Kaoru pushed Sentaro into love octagon with Ritsuko - if he will do something with this is up to debate with his feelings for Yurika and fact that he doesn't know about Kaoru's feelings
Ritsuko on the other part loves Sentaro and, probably, starts to feel something for Kaoru

but from all this mindf*ck only Kaoru has a fallback possibility with all of his fans
so run man, run while you still have chance

other than 3D love relationship nice episode - as usual and nice touch with this "historical" part

LMAO... I didn't even know about hymenoplasty till this post. And obviously Yurika's mom wouldn't know either because it's the 1960s... But that information was helpful. :P
And yeah, it's probably just to check her virginity. Nothing more. Disgrace is a big issue for Asian families.

NOOOOOO SENTAROU. Broken hearted and realized something bad!

I'm starting to think that Ricchan is starting to like Kaoru. Dammit! Kaoru you idiot. ><

Sentarou, I'll give you a hug. T^T

This love triangle is so... ><!!

So that kiss between Jun and Yurika, the one in tha flashbacks, wasn't shown earlier right? I don't remember seeing it in previous episodes.

Hmmm. It was Bo -> Ri -> Sen. Now it's going to be Sen-> Ri-> Bo?

I want them to introduce new characters. I don't like when things start to go round and round with the same characters.

Well, hymenoplasty is a lot older than you would imagine (though some old practices couldn't exactly be called hygienic)... Just don't ask me how I know.

I do think it's more likely for it to be just a "check up".

i never noticed in the manga, but in this episode they hinted that Tokie (ritsuko's friend who's knitting a scarf) likes Maruo lol
Also noticed that Yurika didn't smoke here, while in the manga she smoked near Junichi

Wow, I'm blown away. This was one of my favourite episodes so far. I really like the developing relationship between Yurika and Jun. Honestly, I'd watch a completely separate series on that. I can definitely feel the Josei vibes of this as well. I agree that the gynecologist thing was probably to prove her virginity. I don't see Yurika and Jun jumping into a sexual relationship.

As for the love triangle of Sen, Richie, and Ri-chan, I have no idea where it's gonna go, and I hope they resolve it by the last episode.

I really wish I hadn't read spoilers for this series after the third episode, because the tension created by this ever-changing love polygon is getting unbelievably high.

Granted, I don't exactly know how everything works out, but I know who ends up with who.

Y'know, I don't really care who ends up with who; just that Kaoru and Sentarou stay best buds, in the end. First love's a bitch, but there'll always be more fish in the sea.

A pretty good episode and in response to the ONE GUY saying this is better than "Steins;Gate", no, it's not. Not even near. The series is good but not up to that level. (>,>)

it actually is. and exponentially a lot. you really can't underestimate the power of brilliantly-directed, well-written, and splendidly musically composed slice-of-life anime.

this and Usagi Drop are factually a lot better than S;G that even genre-boundaries-they-mustn't-be-compared-because-they're-different-shows couldn't disapprove. ^^
Simplistic beauty can't be appreciated by someone who looks for something grand in everything he watch.
