----------------------------------------


Oh that little cat is cute at the beginning there.

So, Yamato and Mei goes on a cute date and bowling. Also, a nice talk between the two while raining. I found the ending of the episode to be a little strange and disturbing with the glass and reflection.

Date for the pair as officially in relations. lol @ the hand gesture / dance by Mei and her mother. Meeting another couple, especially that first rival. Wow, her bowling!!

There were problems for everyone, even for the guy. One kiss in the ep.

Oh I see, thanks. It's been awhile since I've read the manga.

The picture at the end was sooo beautiful. <3 And I'm liking the ending song more and more. Btw, is it just me or did Aiko have more weight in the manga (before she lost weight)?

Some reason I'm feeling for Aiko right now. I don't have a connection with the main couple yet.

I guess they're having the Aiko arc before the beach trip and the Hayasaka arc.

I really wish they didn't exclude Masashi from Aiko's flashback. He's kind of an important part of Aiko's character.

@Face_Faith: Yes, her weight was a lot more noticeable in the manga.

I'm a bit confused, did Yamato and Aiko actually do anything or did Aiko lie about it, because Mie never really asked him about it...

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.

I dunno what you meant there. Maybe you meant manga for the first "anime" in your comment above there.

Wow! Super drop in animation quality. Way to go Zexcs. They cannot be what they are without a bad-animation-day episode of any of their series at least once in the run. I hope they pick up the quality from next episode.

Overall, a pretty decent episode but yeah, typical shoujoish.

3.5/5 for the last 5 mins. The entire episode otherwise was pretty boring. Especially the whole bowling thing.

This anime is starting to get a bit of a School Days kind of feel for me...

Aiko is just screwed up IMO
She is crazy over Yamato yet she just had sex (?) with that other guy. This makes me feel quite sad for the other guy though, he might seriously love her...

A turkey! Mei is just godly in bowling haha
In the end, she didn't get to go to the parlor... But she might look nicer with long hair though.
I mainly see the animes... so don't blame me for not knowing about the Manga/LN

Didn't like this as much as the 2 episodes before. It was kind of slow which I feel doesn't really fit in this kind of anime. I really hope Mei is over her I-don't-know-why-he-likes-me attitude because that would be kind of tiring. And they introduced Mei's enemy? Characters like her always annoy me, invading in other people's personal live's while ignoring other people's feelings and just jumping to conclusions. Well I guess they've got to stir up some drama so it's fine. I wonder how many girls Yamato had sex with, he kissed every girl in school (or is it just a rumor?) so he must have had sex with several girls. That will probably also bother Mei. I hope next episode will have a faster pace.

i thought the first two episodes were amazing..but compared to them i felt this one was quite off at different parts and the animation of the character movement seemed have degraded a little. But still love the anime..hope it gets better in episode 4 :)

Er well personally, I think this episode was way better than the 2 first episode, when kissing and stuff happened so randomly and char developments were mediocre at best, they were literally non-existed. No, faster pace will just ruin the show(which couldn't be worst already), it needs slow pace episodes like this.

This episode gave us a bit of Yamato's past, what did he see in Mei( perhaps her straight forward attitude that made him fall for her). Remember what he said about his past, he ignore his bullied friend, and acted like nothing was happened. Meanwhile, Mei kicked his friend, felt like she gave them a warning "don't mess with me", what if he could do the same thing when he was in middle school? Be straight to people around him. He could be able to save his friend from bullying if he had spoken out his mind. On the other hand, Mei understood Yamato better, not as just a hottie who attracts every girls he met. It seems like Mei was the first girl he shared his thoughts with!?

So, what he saw in Mei was, a person who can change him, and that's what I was looking for when I watched Sukitte, not just randomly kissing girls around and have sex with them.

Btw, If he has sex already, it would make his image incredibly bad ... cause hottie play boy doesn't really need development ...

Kind of irritated at the differences from the manga. I guess I can't complain about them leaving out some stuff (regarding Aiko), since it is only an adaptation, but I wish they'd shown her "before" self fatter, like in the manga (someone already posted a link). I relate to her so much, so I'm kind of wishing they didn't 'censor' out bits of her character.

Other than that, an alright episode.

I liked it alot, I hate Aiko though. Being in a relationship and even sleeping with them while being in love with somebody else is stupid.

Looks like Yamato is in fact just a playboy judging from the episodes so far and the spoilers in this thread.

I thought that the relationship between Mei and Yamato developed really quicky, too quickly... Well no matter, the backstory to Yamato was indeed my favourite part of the episode. Conflict between Aiko and Mei? Hell Yes.

This is getting more and more pathetic. The biggest turn off is the fact that the two leads became a couple at the drop of a hat. Secondly, indecisive female leads are plain irritating.

With only 13 episodes, I'm sure the anime won't cover the manga up to Megumi's arc. Which is sad because I liked how

Surprising revelation about Yamato's past good thing he is allot more straight forward now that he was in Junior high.
And Mei is starting to trust him so there relationship is forming nicely.
The cliffhanger with Aiko walking over broken mirrors in her imagination doesn't predict much good.

I can't say i hate her but i do agree she makes some wrong choices.
First there is her previous relationship she was trying so hard to be the perfect girlfriend that she forgot to be herself and in the end she got dumped for it.
Instead of trying to be something else it's better to be yourself if your lover can't except that they aren't worth to be your lover.

My respect for Yamato's character is decreasing by the episode. Not a bad episode overall, better than the last one imo.

3.5/5

They're both looking for the affections of others where ever they can get it to fill an emptiness inside of them.

Aiko was really lonely. She desperately looking for someone how would see her for who she really was and she latched on to the first guy that did see her that way. As fate would have it, it was Yamato.

Yamato is looking for redemption for the shame he felt for not being there for the friend he cared about. He doesn't like the person he turned out to be and doesn't like the kind of attention of people who only see him as that hot guy or the ladies man. He too wants Mei to see him for who he truly is inside/wants to be.

This episode wasn't as good as the other two but it's still really good. I loved that Yamato and Mei are opening up to each other.

Loved the episode though, with great character development.

I have a bad feeling Yamato is going to make a huge dick move sooner or later.

Of course they are. That's been established with the countless soaps airing on TV.

I'm pretty sure they both will. It would boring or a very short anime if stuff didn't happen.

So Yamato does really love her, but it seems he loves a lot of girls at the same time. He even had sex with one (I guess it's true). I don't like him at all...
This is entertaining though, so I won't drop it (yet?).

Nice development! Good to see that Mr. Perfect has some flaws as well. But I still deem him as a Playboy. :D 4/5 for this episode.

Masashi is HOT. Aiko is kind of bitchy right now. But we'll probably see her have a 180 later, if I'm correct.

Judging by this picture:

I don't think that he ever loved any girl other than Mei.

I think that he just slept with Aiko because he felt obligated to and at the same time, felt sorry for her. He saw that she was crying, in pain, and didn't want to put her in any more agony. It's a pathetic excuse, but I think that's what happened with Aiko.

The other girls he probably kissed just to get them off his back since they just keep on coming without end. If he didn't, they would keep on hitting on and nagging him to no end.

I'm really shock that so many people dislike Yamato. I thought he was one of the most nicest characters in the anime and manga.

Anyways I enjoyed this episode. The only problem I have is that Yamato and Mei started dating pretty fast. I read the manga, but the anime seems go through events so fast for some reason.

This show is not really doing it for me. I don't find the relationship between the main characters believable at all (do they need to fit at least one kiss into every episode?) and this new plot is so obviously just a way to arbitrarily antagonize someone to make the main couple look so much more "romantic" or something because, through everything, he's going to choose Mei. And the way they play up Kurosawa is suffocating. I facepalmed when he said he wasn't good enough.

I really like what Mei said at the end and how she wants to change. I've seen so many other shows where the characters don't admit that and it gets needlessly dragged on with drama that isn't compelling. The conflict in this episode I found to be pretty real with the way it was approached.

It was a little iffy when Kurosawa saying that he felt he was the one hiding. I can see where he's coming from but it's definitely small problems when comparing it to other peoples. I'll let it pass though since it wasn't that much of a dealbreaker

I can honestly say I love the anime, and sadly i can relate to Mei. She does't feel good enough. I really don't either. I get people are getting tired of her asking "why are you with me?" But it's like I still question that to my boyfriend since everyone loves him, and I just left that whole "friend" thing behind. I don't know, I kinda wish everyone would stop saying it's annoying. It's actually pretty relating to me. And well the episode was just a let down to me. I kind of hate how much Yamato has done with girls. And yea I found out about Aiko, which changes my whole perspective. I can't hate this episode, but it feels like it will go down hill for this relationship. I hope he really is like a player popular guy, cause if i were Mei, I wouldn't take it much anymore.

Best episode of this anime so far. I really liked Aiko, she is self-destructive it's good to see a shoujo character suffering not just because her BF is an asshole but because she doesn't know how to act when she's in love.

Yamato got some background and I'm glad we finally understand why he loves Mei.

He is a playboy, but even they can fall in love and change after that.
