THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
The episode did brilliantly in the expected fan service with decent and very moderate exposures as known of the weakness of the studio in that field yet they show it much more strongly than other studios in perhaps light aspects.
However that is in the first half of the episode. What really catches in the second half are the young girls in the following,
MOE OVER 9000 *dies* ....*is back* Oh that was so much MOE. Both are adorable however one of them looks like Ibara a little. So I think only one looks like Eru's sister? Except she is not and in fact related to Ibara’s side. Seems that they tried to make a mini Ibara/Eru play with the looks of the 2 sisters. But oh my they look adorable.
Coincidentally the end also offered a rather very charged up rich and intriguing art usage in the following,
Notice the LOVELY shades and how that part really enchanted Eru as a dark figure enshrouded with fiery curiosity of perhaps a deeper love developed. Remember she touched Houtarou’s face in a way perhaps and in the setting that was never done before by her. Setting meaning Houtarou in the bed.
About the fan service, the studio was never known much farther than its “B” Grade fan service being very light and never really crossing the border and perhaps only a artistically way. This is exactly what charmed me in this episode. Take example of the Eru’s part in the spoiler
That being said IMO they fan serviced out more for the girls Houtarou and Satoshi. A total win for them and of course a good thing for there are far too many anime girls exposed and not enough males for its female viewership. As such Houtarou and Satoshi in the spoiler
About the beginning, a rather nice depiction of Houtarou here starts out for me things. While the episode gives out a nice Houtarou x Eru beginning with their faces and walk in the spoiler
About Houtarou’s collapse, oh dear! ROFL! Where to start OMG I never though Houtarou was so lame like that. Let’s take the parts of the segment in the spoiler
About Eru’s visit to Houtarou while he is weak, that certainly would explain the following spoiler
About Houtarou’s vision, a rather strange and intriguing journey in the spoiler
The morning meeting and little sister to the rescue! Certainly a nice sight to see of the little girls in the spoiler
One of them being at start with Ibara in the spoiler
It was rather charming the part where Ibara started to talk of her time with Eru in the bed in the spoiler
Now I have to admit that Eru’s faces were charming in the spoiler
I find the part with the young girls in the spoiler
Finally within this segment, it was finally good to see Satoshi back in the spoiler
About the last walk, this last segment for me had a few parts of high artistic value and notion. Such as the spoiler
The second part of this segment in the spoiler
However what really got my MOE OVER 9000 is the siblings with how they made Eru react in the spoiler
About the preview, looks like the gang shall see some movie and we have a new female in the spoiler

Field trip to onsen. The guy got carsick easily.
Short hair girl's sisters. One of the sisters is voiced by Toyosaki-san!! Another is Yui Ogura?
The way to onsen with the girl, who is jealous of having siblings. He got sick in the onsen sensing and imagining about the girl?!
Kaidan by the girl by Toyosaki-san next room, about 7th room. lol @ his friend sleeping next to him so near in the morning. And short hair girl saw something like that kaidan that was mentioned. So the girl saw, too. To the investigation. There's festival, and rain. It was to dry the yukata?? Older one has her names on everything, but not the younger one.
The girl feels sad about siblings not getting along to the extend that borrowing is not allowed.
Watching a film that sempai filmed? next ep.

I found this mystery considerably more interesting than the usual (which is kinda boring). I think there's still hope on that account after all.
KingCez said:Well, something definitely "grew" when Eru touched Houtarou's cheek XD. I really laughed at his obvious attempt at hiding his reaction by bending and turning his back to her.
is there some growing feelings there? 0_o
... And with Eru being apparently all right with joining Houtarou in a mixed bath... Damn, they only need to work on their communication and they would be all set.
Of course, I don't expect anything more than just getting teased all the season, that's how this stuff almost always go...

I realize the slow pace of this series isn't for everyone, but WOW the art is phenomenal! For a weekly TV series, this is quite impressive!
Chi looked great in this ep too!

I would definitely kill for romance in this anime. Oreki and Chitanda seem to be so cute together as a couple, this episode was just EPIC and BRILLIANT!! and those adjectives were understatements, balanced story, fan service and some fluffy strongly romance bet. characters, so great. best episode to date.
