This is definitely the top show this season for me. This year so far, even.

This was such an exceptional episode!

The Jun and Yurika moments were quite emotionally beautiful. I'm also glad the potential love triangle mess was dealt with rather quickly.

That jazz session was fantastic! The musical arrangement throughout the episode was as thoroughly fantastic as it's ever been. Most scenes were accompanied with some terrific musical selections that really sold the emotion.

Show of the year for me, and it's not even close.

When the train doors were closing I literally half-sat/half-jumped in my chair, smacking my legs as I screamed "DO IT!" a bunch of times. And oh did he do it. My fists raised into the air I declared a loud "YES" for my neighbours to hear. Best moment so far. I kind of have a feeling Yurika cutting Jun's hair won't be her first priority.. ;)

The gloves under the cover was a nice finish, with the icing on the cake being Kaoru's baffled "huh".

This is the first ever show that made me cry out of happiness...!

How my heart thumped when Jun grabbed Yurika.. Oh, their love is so beautiful! I'm SO GLAD he saved her. :') SO Happy!! They totally are made for each other. Love that waist-hug! ^_^

Yurika is so good. :) Haha! She was amazing when she felt rebellious even in front of Ri'ko. She totally hates the rich-and-proper image that she has to carry for the sake of her family. GO Yurika!! ^_^ Love her!!

I kinda knew Ri'ko would settle on seeing Sen as more of a brother than one whom she would want to marry. Childhood dreams grow old and you realise you're more family than separate. :) YAY for Kaoru!!
Dammit I SO wanna see his expression!! =D Gyaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!! Can't wait for the next!! I hope they show his face. :P

I wish I could rate this show way more than 10. :))

_____

AAAhahahaaha!!
I just noticed that the scene with Yurika and Jun is so off once he gets on the train!! :))
With the train to the right of the platform, Jun enters while Yurika hides on our side of the pillar with her parents coming from behind her. Then Jun sees her through the window which should have been the door. So the doors were closed? Plus, Yurika is now leaning on the other side of the pillar, i.e. facing her parents!
The scene continuity is disturbing. They should have at least showed her switching sides or him walking to another compartment if that was the case. He runs out in the opposite direction too! :))) Ah! It's irking me! Lol!

Update: Ah! So it is a reflection on the opposite door's window! Thanks Dinamet7!

That means to be in love! Wanting to be close to your love! Mostly physically! Yup, that's what love is and Yurika didn't care about those people listening to them at the station.

I SCREAMED!!! "TAKE HER, DAMN IT!!!"
Bravo, Junichi!!! An exceptional scene - Jun hearing what will happen to her... looking at the window... Yurika turning to face him with tears in her eyes... OH MY GOD!

5/5

I just made an account so I can join in on the Apollon praise.

Favorite anime of the year. Sakmichi no Apollon has reminded me why I watch anime in the first place. If only all romance anime were like this...

Enough praise though. I'm worried that Sen's gonna end up alone by the end of the series. I know it's not Yurika's fault, but COME ON. Did they really have to screw Sen over that badly?

SO MANY TEARS at the end of this episode <3 This is the first show in a while I ranked 10 before it ends (usually I wait to make sure the ending doesn't off-put the ranking of a 10!)

Yeah I gotta say, I'm not much of a fan of love triangles or romance anime in general because of how cheesy/corny it tends to get, but this series is handling it decently imo.

Holy crap, Jun really did take Yurika with him, one second later and the door would've shut down. So, happy end for them (we don't know how it's going to work out for them, though) and one couple is done.

"I'll have you cut my hair" MY ASS when you tell us earlier that they didn't have sex.

Ritsuko is quite indecisive but looks like Kaoru is now the one she is going for, the question is if Kaoru will accept her after all that happened and what might happen.

What's with Sen then if Kaoru and Ritsuko get together? Don't you dare let him be alone or unhappy!

Seriously, Matsuoka the stupid fang guy needs to disappear, he is so out of place.

I say... it was predictable.
Things between Ritsuko and Sen for one.
Also that Yurika will rather go with Jun.
So no surprise that it ended like this - what I liked was that those matters were solved that quickly. Nothing like 2 episodes of waiting and some doubts?! Come on!
But this was really good, I approve :)

What will Kaoru do :D will he remain in his emo-mode or move forward - probably also the second but how much time it will take.

I expected the jamming session part. It seems that it is their way of making up [just like the last time between Sen and Kaoru at school] and it was really nice..

At first, I was happy that Jun will be going to Tokyo and never coming back. At least, maybe Sen will have a chance with Yurika. But Jun suddenly took her. And I was, "what will happen now with Sen??!?!"... Poor Sen. I hope they will pair another character for him..

But the cutest of all is the gloves part at the end. The "Huh?" part was so cute they should have showed Kaoru's face.. :)

AnimeNewsNetwork?
The 12 episodes they mention is what they know for sure that it'll have, doesn't mean it won't have more ;)

And this anime can always get a second season.

JUN! My heart was beating so fast! I was like, "JUN GO TO HER!!!" Sigh... now they will do more stuff once they reach Tokyo. The hair will probably be long for another night. I don't mind. I like his hair. :3

And Kaoru x Riko! Yes? Don't do something stupid Kaoru! And lol he -slapped- Sen, and Sen was chill with it.

Only thing I'm worried about is that Sen will be lonely. D:

This episode was as close to perfection as it could be. Definitely the best episode yet.

The jun and Yurika story ended perfectly. I'm glad he did take her at the end. The Jam challenge was awesome and it seems Ritsuko and Kaoru will get a good ending :D

This is one of the top animes i've seen.

The surprise gift for Kaore, I'm glad that Riko finally made up her mind!

Well it seems that all of the love triangles were broken in this episode. Which is a good thing. Great episode next up is Ritsuko and Kaoru, but I wonder will Sentarou be the only one by himself?

Jesus fucking christ. I loved how much Ri'ko spoke in this episode. I fucking love Kansai inflections. Ri'ko's voice combined with Kansai inflections induces ASMR in me, I swear it. Particularly in the scene with Kaoru in the park. I shivered.

I might be wrong because I was confused by this at first too, but I think he might have been watching her reflection on the other window on the opposite side of the train. The doors would have been closed on that side and it would explain how he could grab her and why she would look like she was backwards. She should have appeared smaller in a window's reflection though haha!

Why is it that the characters i disliked made me happy when the got to be together?

such a beautiful episode. and yay! kaoru x ritsuko finally.

As for Sen, their class is full of bishoujos so he will have his spring. he is still an immature all muscle and no brains so he is okay being alone for the time being. better start picking up fights :D

5/5. So sad that only 2 episodes remain. Loved every episode since the second episode! One of the best ongoing shows right now alongside Tsuritama. It's been quite sometime when 2 noitaminA shows ruled an anime season!

I liked how Richie and Ri-chan were sitting on the bench watching that couple kiss. Which was also the same place where Richie first kissed her, last year during the holidays.

Hooray Ri-chan you're finally honest with your feelings. Furthermore, realized you were in the wrong getting mad at Richie, and noticed how much he's supported and been there for you from the beginning :)

I think once Richie sees Ri-chan he's gonna cry of happiness, shoot I would if a girl made gloves for me, and chose me instead of another guy.

I have very mixed feelings about Jun and Yurika finally getting together. While I’m glad they both found love, I think they threw away too much to get it. Yurika is dropping out of high school and it doesn’t look like Jun can support both of them. They are setting themselves of for a life of tragedy and regret and I just don’t see a happy ending with those two. I do sympathize with Yurika because she was stuck between a rock and a hard place, but at least she could have waited until she graduated to run away.
