THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The episode was fantastic in providing a fresh air with Urabe’s new hair style and a revisiting of the picture gag. Add to that the bits of comedy with Oka and it was a WIN for me. Especially the end whom I knew from skimming through the manga however visually it was far more appealing animated in this episode.

About Oka giving a new hairstyle to Urabe, I liked a lot the following depiction,

As it shows nicely Oka and Urabe’s new hairstyle once done. Along with Oka’s teasing at first in the spoiler
one cannot deny the depiction in Rose color as a reference back to Hyouka’s Houtarou very same notion of seeing life in Pink. A new fresh air envelops Urabe with this new fashion.

I have to admit that randomly the red setup and segment in the spoiler
was very interesting visually as the red gave it some aggressive tones to the scene in it being mostly in a red colored background.

Other elements in the list
  • The part with Oka and Ueno in the spoiler
    trying to fix her hair came out very appealing at the end as Oka with no glasses and sex hair as a certain girl from Amagami SS was came surprising MOE much more.

  • The picture segment in the spoiler
    was nice in part for 2 things. For one seeing Akira being all pissed off about it came out as amazing facials and the pictures themselves showed some nice angles of Urabe in her new hair style.

  • The whole magazine part in the spoiler
    has multi elements of appeal. Such as the model actually looking really like Urabe except the swimsuit kind of betrays the breast size. However the rest could pass for Urabe a little. Ueno surprising Akira with the mag resulted in some comedy but the best was with Oka knowing about the mag itself.
So from the list interesting setups and comedy.

I did like the beginning in the spoiler
as I wonder if some of the will be more revealed in the Bds but clearly nice service there.

Finally the end of the episode was the best with the following,

Akira’s face is priceless after Urabe got the mag into pieces in front of him. Now that was nice and so were the parts in the spoiler
for service.

About the preview, seems to me like the spoiler
suggests perhaps a new girl and she tries drool method? WTF? Seems the practice is getting spread around more than before.

Once again excellent episode and I had my fun from seeing it despite being tired.

Not sure, but Urabe not wearing anything when sleeping? At least it looks like that in the beginning. Then she got messy hair from sleeping (Neguse). The megane girl said the exact thing that what he thought!! Then twin tail by the girl. And showing her eyes.

That got everyone's attentions and talking about her!! That made him jealous. She told him to mess up with her hair with his hands. Then it's back to her normal hairstyle. She feels good with him messing her hair.

The megane girl knows why he said so. So that was beginning intermission about... Urabe messing her hair. Now she asked Ueno to do the same.

Then a guy took lots of photos of Urabe with that hairstyle!! He's getting some money out of them. The guy is mad, then he just realized how jealous he is, and how he wants to own her badly! (dokusenyoku)! Someone mentioned that she looks like an idol.

He investigates how similar to the idol. Momoka Imai really looks like Urabe. Because Ueno saw him, so he told his girlfriend, who told Urabe about it!! lol~~~ She scissor attacked the photobook!! So she's also wants to own him badly.

Next ep.... Urabe? with short hair and showing her eyes (not temporary like this ep.)

Mikoto became a new person with the new hairdo. Super cute!

Poor Akira saw 3000 yen go up in shreds when Mikoto shredded the magazine.

Urabe looks adorable with her hair up, but I think it's better when it's in the normal style (:

I kind of wish we could see her in many different styles though!

Interestingly, the focus on Oka reminds us that Urabe and Tsubaki aren't too far behind in their relationship than Oka and Ueno are. It shows how much closer Urabe and Tsubaki have gotten without ever kissing, though I am not sure if their relationship is meant to be replicable.

The scene with Tsubaki messing up Urabe's hair is obviously a symbol of foreplay, but that entire scene is confusing me. Why is that entire scene tinted in red? What is that mysterious figurine that hangs off Urabe's bag and is randomly the focus of the camera? And what does Tsubaki mean when he says that Urabe's original hairstyle is the cutest? How is that different from hotness or prettiness?

Finally, did anyone else realize that Urabe, right after Tsubaki messes up her hair, looks very similar to Lelouch? Even how her hair hides one eye, while slowing revealing the other is very similar to Lelouch.

I was rather annoyed at the fact that they haven't kissed, but I realized I was being stupid about it and not looking beyond it, seeing how they get flustered and turned on by the simplest of touch from each other is a beautiful thing, showing that when you care deeply about someone that just the slightest touch by them means the world and can alter your emotions and connect you in a special way

Urabe super hot with the new dew if only it lasted more then a day, damn you Tusbaki, on that note who feel good getting their hair messd up? men this show is strange.

Seeing Tusbaki jelous over picture, tsk tsk tsk someone a bit possessive he said it himself

Who spend 3000 yen on a picture book? really? *faceplam*

and at the end who knew that Urabe was that possessive cost the man 3000 yen Haha

urabe's new hairdo was ridiculously funny - made her look like a peppy cheerleader type...funny how just changing a person's outward appearance can completely invert others appraisals of who they are.......this show (and manga) can make even an old cynical sod like me feel regrets for lost innocence and romance - great stuff!!!!

A jealous Urabe sure is a force to reckon with.
Quite a good episode this week. From last week's preview I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm glad about the way the episode was handled. Starting it off with a new cute hairstyle for Urabe, continuing with Tsubaki's fairly obvious jealousy combined with a cute idol and eventually ending it with Urabe's jealously; something our protagonist definitely didn't expect to see. 5/5

Episode #10 - Mysterious Affair. Now that sounds interesting, doesn't it? So far I haven't been disappointed by this anime and I'm sure that that will continue next week as well. Looking forward to it.

Urabe sleeps in the nude, I had forgotten that from the manga until this episode opened. That was a cool opening btw with the curtain. Felt like I was watching a different show at first.

Glad to see people finally starting to catch up with what this series is really about.

The new hairstyle wasn't gorgeous but still cute I guess. That messing up the hair thing was really weird though. Oka asking Ueno to do the same for her was the best. She had the best line so for, saying that Urabe and Tsubaki are into some weird stuff. We also got the introduction of Momoka. Looking forward to her debut. And dat imagery... It's simply ingenious.
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

Such a cute haircut! I really enjoyed seeing Urabe's face and eyes clearly.

I don't like jealousy and possessiveness in relationships though, why can't people get over such silly, unnecessary things...

Oka was great, damn, I wish there could be more of her in every episode. Ueno is such a lucky guy! Much better than Tsubaki too. He didn't even buy Urabe's photo, because he has Oka. And what the impulsive jealous ear-licking breast-ogling perverted Tsubaki did? He bought an idol's photo album to drool on INSTEAD of his girlfriend's cute photo. Urabe was right to cut it into pieces.

I would have to with my whole heart agree on this. He should bought his girl's pictures and all of them. Stopping this picture distribution of her and keeping a tons of them for himself.

Really nice episode with both of them getting jealous, Urabe's face when she told Tsubaki that she is his girlfriend was priceless. I'm glad they introduced Imai, hope we will see her some time soon. While I did like to see Urabe's face I think she should stay with her old hairstyle.

Jesus, I got the hardest boner ever when I saw Urabe with her new haircut, but after that I realized that I like her more with her typical haircut. I've got to admit she was cute, tho.
Too bad, there are going to be 4 episodes more. I hope there's gonna be a 2nd season of this show, cuz I think I'm kinda addicted to it :D
I love the progression between their relationship. I think you can say it's kinda intense, I mean it's unpredictable. You can never know what's going to happen.
Great episode, tho. I can't get enough of this show.
p.s. I mean, just look at her..

It is something stupid, but I like that, unlike other people, Tsubaki said "Momoka looks like Urabe". Sometimes he is very idiot but at least always think in Urabe. Oh, by the way, there is no doubt that the director of Casshern Sins collaborated in this episode. Nice.

I agree with Tsubaki. Although it was nice to see Urabe with a different hairstyle, her original one was better. It was also cute to see both Tsubaki and Urabe get jealous in this episode.

New hairstyle lasted 5 minutes - and that was enough
and messing or playing with hair... yes Oka is weird but this is true, it's great thing :)

ok being spoiled by manga I really enjoyed this episode
maybe they didn't change too much or did - but Urabe's voice is so good that it's still worth watching still there is chemistry
also their relationship, more proof that they care about each other - really cute (they didn't kiss and so what :P it's visible)

I hope they make a second season - but I don't know if there will be enough material to do so
btw regarding manga adaptation

There is material to do a second season, oh yes, but the main problem in the manga is its storyline structure, (not so spoiler)

Two very good stories in that episode. My experience is that Riichi Ueshiba got it right - girls do like getting their heads rubbed hard, once they get past the fear of getting their hair messed up. (It's best to do it just before they are going to wash their hair anyway...)

And it's too bad that there isn't enough time to do the Momoka arc, which is one of my favourites in the manga.

Ah, mutual possessiveness is such a lovely thing... While it lasts, anyway.

So, next episode is "Mysterious Affair". Oh. Goddammit Akira.

He could have bought ten pictures of Urabe for the cost of the idol photobook he only got to have for 48 hours.

This was a great episode with some serious character development. Both Urabe and Tsubaki are discovering a bit about themselves, especially as it relates to the amount of possessiveness in their system.

So it turns out they're both being possessive/jealous. Urabe even destroyed Tsubaki's book of Imai Momoko because of that. But it's true, she's just like a brown-haired, more out-going version of her. Urabe's one day hairstyle was pretty cute, but I agree that it didn't really suit her.

Next week we're going to have more tension because it looks like his previous crush is joining his class1

She was wearing a different school's uniform, so I don't think she'll be joining the class.

I agree about Urabe's hairstyle.

Man, this show keeps getting better every ep.

Urabe's kawaii meter went up by over 9000 this ep! She's soooooo cute with her hair up.

Was also refreshing seeing the pantsu scissors again lol.

Looks like next ep will be very very interesting. Seeing how Urabe reacted to a photobook of someone that looked like her, I wonder how she'll react when Tsubaki's previous crush joins the class lol.

Can't wait!

Funny enough, while it's true she normally sleeps in the nude, if you go back the read the chapters this episode was based on she's wearing pajamas in the scene in the manga.
