All I can say is... YUI X YOSHIFUMI FTW!!!!

They both got over their main conflicts this episode, with Aoki clearing the confusion of who he was really in love with (took real balls to just go up to his old girlfriend out of the blue and tell her he doesn't love her anymore xD) and Yui being able to admit weakness and conquer her fear of men.

Can't wait to see how this plot thickens with Iori and Inaban, and it looks like Taichi just got himself into some DEEP shit. :o

Most pointless trip ever...He goes all the way tell the girl he doesn't like and he likes someone else .....in real life that would be the dumbest thing ever plus she could care less...if i was her I would have been wtf??


Disagree. It has a lot of meaning. Consider the fact that even she still believed he harbored feelings of love for her. The real point is that he was doing it for himself and Yui not to see her reaction. So even is she acted "wtf?", it wouldn't of been a regrettable action for him.

Very touching episode. Next episode looks to be another gripper. Got to admire Inaba for being so sharp but this time around, as we know, her digging can lead to a bad end.


Chill I have been in Aoki position...its called moving on you can move on without physically seeing the person ya its hard for some but you eventually get over thats all im saying

I think the moment Nana told Aoki she cut her hair means that she has finally moved on as well. That's why she accepted it easily.


+1
Exactly!!! by saying that she cut her hair to Aoki she is also saying she has moved on too.thats why she did not looked to fazed about Aoki saying those things to her.

I thought that part was easy to understand; i mean why else would she make such a statement; the one who needed to move on was Aoki; she moved on a while back, so its good closure for both of them if anything else.

Now now seems like the original heartseed may give them a second chance after watching the preview besides i always thought that heartseed ( not including heartseed #2) tries to help the 5 of them in his own way.
Well seems like next ep would be full of drama. Hope that this time it works well coz i found that the way the previous arc ended could've been better.

Holy crap! This episode, so many feeling. I like how everything about Yui was revealed, and then resolved afterward. And yeah, that confession from Aoki, and that hug ... really pulled me in. Good job, Aoki, now I know that you really love Yui.

Iori as an infant? I want to hold her, hahahaha.

For Inaba, I like how she keep teasing Taichi and Iori in this episode though. She really wants to have Taichi's heart, for sure!

Overall, this episode get 5/5 from me. Totally a solid episode in terms of storyline (for both Yui and Aoki) and the comedy from the group. I like how I got blown away by the fact that I though "Yeah, just being a child again, what could possibly go wrong?" then all of the sudden I got blown away by how many things have gone wrong, and all the dramas in this episode.

Oh, at the end? Taichi, you're screwed.

-----

Next episode seems like it's going to be awesome as well, as this arc is *really* another solid arc. I'm looking forward to it, but really not want to watch it because I think it will be Iori's turn ... she's going to break so bad because of this 'going back in time' thing ... oh god. :(

Oh, and next episode is going to be the last episode that they air on the TV as well. Oh well ...

I like how this episode's thought are totally bisected:

* If you have read the LN, you'll feel that this arc is so rushed, and it's lacking details. You'd find it's missing something.

* If you have not read the LN, you'll feel like this arc is perfect, and it keeps you entertain w/o feeling that it crammed everything in too much.

I don't think either of us is wrong — I think they've already tried their best to animate this one.

---

it's too bad that they have decided, or have the budget/time, to be able to do only 17 episodes. I'd think it would be better if they could do 24 or 26 (5-5-4-5.) But I guess that's all the time they could have from the broadcasting company. I mean, heck, this show supposed to have 17 episodes, but they could air only 13 episode ...

If it's really the case that that's all the airtime they got from the broadcasting company, think I'm glad that they've decided to show only three arcs on the TV (5-5-3.) You know, they could have crammed first 4 books into 13 episodes (maybe 4-4-2-3), but it would be really bad. I think this really wasn't their choice, they just had to deal with it.

They will you could easily argue Iori's 'family' is her friends - so while it will be a shock to her shes not 'alone' - And id certainly hope you didn't like / trust them - haha they arent very likeable in fact quite detestable - and they seldom keep their word (they usually are to vague for it to matter) however it can't be denied that these actions taken by HS havent helped them become closer as friends and bond more and also face some of their own stuff

Imo this whole arc was too rushed. The previous had a lot of potential, considering we have teenagers in a love triangle, but the author underused its possibilities.
I cant wait for next week tho, the previa really got me wondering wtf will happen!

Sorry but what do you mean with next episode being the last aired onde? Will episodes 14-17 be OVAs or something like that?
Delays are temporary. Mediocracy lasts forever.

So, will the next ep be the conclusion of the arc? Episode 13 is next...I thought the remaining 4 eps would be BD exclusive?

There is no real news about how they are gonna air it yet. But it's pretty much confirmed that it won't be on TV. We are speculating online streaming like OreImo.

    Great development this episode, looks like both Aoki & Yui cleared out and faced their problems. Hmm, like others without reading the LN, I did feel that Yui & Aoki's relationship seems to have been forced a bit further. Anyway it looks like big things will be happening next episode so I'll be looking forward to that.

    I'd certainly prefer that over waiting for BD releases - heres hoping for the quality to continue either way

    Found it quite boring this time. Mainly because I think Aoki is a lame character therefore his story is boring for me, too. Yui's fine, though.
    But funny to see how bold Inaba can be now that she doesn'T decline her love for Taichi.
    Usually I don't give a crap about OP/ED but how the fuck could I miss that outstanding new ED introduced last week? xD

    Sure did not look like him to me. But upon close look I do see his big golden belt. However it's rather badly shown for an angle TBH.

    Both are very good, particularly the facial expressions, but looking at them just now I realized something. Out of context (ie, without realizing just exactly what it is Yui is attempting to do, and just exactly what it is that is surprising Aoki) these images invoke a different scenario that could have motivated Yui's death grip hug.

    Man, there really were a lot of 'BURN!' moments in this episode. I'm glad they worked out Yui and Yoshifumi's problems though. Yui actually hugged Yoshifumi of her own accord! Yoshifumi and Tachi suddenly taking the trip to see Nana was pretty weird though. xD

    It looks like Inaba is starting to suspect Taichi of hiding something. The preview predicts more drama and a disappointing Heartseed #2 next time.

    Looks like Taichi might fail next week. Then the real storms begin.

    Inaba asking questions is going to cause problems! :O You think he could of just said "Because it always ends when something good happens between us" or something vague about not being allowed to say. Although I guess it does tie into her whole trust issue's aspect. Anyways, preview looks promising.

    Did anyone else think Nana was the girl in Aoki's story that died in a car accident and that Aoki was just going to end up taking Taichi with him to visit her grave? That would have been an interesting twist :P

    So does this mean Yui feels the same way towards Aoki and just isn't ready, or was she just getting over her fears?

    If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

    Great episode as always, I especially like the new OP, just as much as the first. I am glad that Yui finally "won", and am looking forward to her new attitude. Also as always, the preview made the next episode look really dramatic. Things will definitely escalate now that Taichi let his guard down.

    Great episode final some screen time for Aoki and Yui. Im really interested at whats going to happen next hopefully Iori doesnt do something stupid and somehow restarts her life. Taich is in a tough spot between Inaba and Iori but I really feel like Iori needs him and since hes already stated that she's the one he loves he should step up and be her knight like heartseed 2 wants

    The drama may be a recurring pattern, but the triumphs are priceless. (Not to mention the jokes one can make about Aoki and Taichi after that episode)

    Aoki is finally getting some character development. Oh my.
