THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
lol~~~ ballerina!! (I actually loled literally!! Usually it was lol inside)

Kishio-san? (or Terashii?)'s character is the main one this time? He wrote a short poetry to test Minorin's character on first three phrases. They feels that they know each other since Koyasu-san?'s character told them about each other. It seems like Sakurai-san (he doesn't have his hair covering one side of eye now)'s character is his classmate? There are two guys who died in the story, one of them are the lady with the red hair girl.

Sakurai-san's character is depressed, and one of the reasons being Minorin's character leaving. They have their own works. Through the talk, they learn to keep the happy memory and go on. KajiKaji didn't include the sad poetry into Hyakuninisshu, though.

About friendship between Minorin's character and golden hair girl next?

I think Yukinari is voiced by Terashima Takuma

As always, I had a sudden attack of allergies at the end of this episode and had to wipe my eyes profusely. Why is it that great poetry tends to come from the bitter rather than the sweet?

Mmmm don't think so, as the golden hair girl aka Princess Teishi is kinda out of the picture.
I'm hooked but they ought to change the title of the anime if the rest of the episodes will feature Shonagon.

I had tears in my eyes. Are the next couple episodes from now on going to feature Shonagon, or is the next the last? I like her character, Yukinari, Teishi, and the rest that have appeared around her. (I still can't grasp every character's name, but I know a little more than half. The names are kind of similar.)

Sad episode: Yukinari is sad and in love with Sei...but due to Blonde chick's death, she decides to go and work on her book so she can feature Blonde Empress in a better light.

And next week....looks like we get to see Murasaki and someone!

I wonder when we'll get to Teika's story? Probaly the last?

That's because I'm not sure, I put "?". And I use seiyuu's name and how the characters look like to remember any character because I'm not good at character names.

Alliteration (or head-rhyme) makes Kinto's poem interesting and memorable;
Taki no oto wa
Taete hisashiku
Narinuredo,
Na koso nagarete
Nao kikoekere.

I literally went "wtf" at the beginning XD

Beautiful episode like usual. I'm sad there's only three more episodes left. :(

It's sad how both Sei Shonagon's lovers didn't end up with her. Unless I'm misunderstanding?

I almost cried at the part where Teishi died and Sei was looking at her shocked.

Who knows, in the opening there are three couples left (after the picture with Shonagon and Yukinari kissing), but maybe two stories will be introduced in one episode...

The next episode had Murasaki and someone.

And then in episode six, it was hinted that Teika had a princess.

The reason why Teika didnt include the last poem of Teishi was so touching...

Awesome show.

A life without trust may just not be worth living, indeed, but fortunately Shonagon found a loyal friend in Yukinari.

The parting scene was extremely touching. Something about Yukinari giving his usual snarky remarks yet it being quite obvious how sorrowful he is made the scene very emotional yet undramatic due to its calmness.

As usual, laughed at Teika before the opening.
Music was awesome in this episode, and the full story was beautiful and touching.
Scene with snow, cherry blossom, poem and dialog just after it was so nice! ~_~

So Teika didnt include Teishi in his 100 poems cause he was honoring Shonagon's wishes. Or at least thats the speculation. :)

Damn Im so glad im watching this while im in a relationship. If I watched this when I was single I wouldnt be able to handle all of the feels.

I remember when I first got into VAs I stumbled upon this:


Partially the reason why I wanted to watch this :P That intro sure was special and memorable.

I like how I got sadder throughout the episode, first it was hearing about Sanetaka's death (so many died so young back then), and then it was Yukinari's guilt and the goodbye between him and Sei Shonagon. What they both chose at the end would be a classic example of giri-ninjo, the idea of choosing between duty and one's emotions. It was sad, but still beautiful. I really appreciate how the drama is handled in a very controlled way; the episodes quietly stir my heart.

Shonagon wanting The Pillow Book to contain only Teishi's smiles was really nice, as well as Teika wanting to honor Shonagon's intention.

"The best moments in my life were when you and I talked about nothing." That was the line that made me start crying. It reminds me of how these days I only talk to my friends about our worries about the future, what to do with our lives and applying for jobs. Back then, we talked about random yet fun things.

"Good memories are not meant to tie you to the past. They serve to push you forward. We must try our best to move on, so we don't feel sad when remembering the past and live full lives." If only I could be as positive as Shonagon. But this quote is a very good one to live by, and I've only realized that reminiscing all the time does made me sad. They're happy memories, yet I am sad when I remember them, and I don't think that's a good thing. That was eye-opening.
