Well this episode was definitely better than last weeks. Hilarious but serious at times and even some character development, good stuff. Next week looks like its going to be pretty good as long as it doesn't turn out similar to last week.

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 got a question related to this episode. What are the general requirements of becoming a real game designer assuming you want to pursue a career in it?


Well, a person isn't going to just become a game designer. One might first have experience in programming and various other game related subjects in order to have a grasp on how to design a game. Creating a video game is a very complicated process.

If you're looking from just an indie development standpoint, one could easily become a "game designer" but they would probably be responsible for programming, level design, animations, or a combination of them.

I mean, a game designer has to do not only thinking of the ideas (which is what most people think about when told game design) but also how to execute it in the current market and how to make it effective and profitable.

Then again, there are no strict "requirements" as each game designer may vary in terms of their skill. Some may be adept at managing a team but not quite as good in programming while others may excel at the technical aspects but do worse in other areas.

Well, that's definitely true. Creating a video game is definitely a complicated process in which would require a lot of creativity and skill. I'm not sure on the exact criteria but I imagine it would involve skills of photography, special effects, graphic design, and 3D animation. They probably have to be quite inspired into the work.

In technical terms, I assume a Bachelor of Fine Arts is another requirement at a four year institution to be considered qualified as well as work experience as well as references, sample games(?), and strong teamwork/time management skills.

Graphic design is probably also one of the key elements a game designer have to learn to perfect. It definitely seems like a career that is interesting but challenging imo. Oh well, I probably won't consider it although it did strike to me at one point.

Damn I would have loved to have been Sorata in that position. Too bad he didn't look up or look back when they were running.

Anyone know who the Seiyu for Rita is?

Just finished watching it RAW...,

The first half was just pure 'meh' but the second half was definitely 1000% better. Sorata this episode was just annoying! I understand that he is sad and depressed..., i mean i dont blame him for being that way..., but crying? Seriously..., he cries; WTF? That scene coupled together with the Nanami Episode was just too much lameness for me to keep this at a '9' score.

Will post my further thoughts on this episode when the fansubs come out. Maybe understanding more of what is going on with the English subs might change back the score for it.
He cried? I don't remember that. I guess I gotta watch it again. I just remembered him having a serious face, then raging


He was crying a little but held it in when Mashiro came, but i guess its a crime to feel anything to some fans, so thus the critic. Well in any case i personally can't blame the crying, people who have the delusion that men never cry haven't experienced reality, crying isn't restricted to gender nor age.


Crying a little is not a big deal it dosn't make him look bad or anything. The thing that bothered me a little was how he was thinking that he would resent her because she had succeeded and he hadn't. Its not really fair, other then that it was a decent episode 4/5. Next episode is intriguing.


You think jealousy is meant to be fair? If someone succeeds in their dream and you fail, you think that your mind will only be filled with happy thoughts? Last time i checked people aren't saints, they can put up whatever facades they like but its human nature to envy the success of others, how it is handled is the only difference that exists, just as its normal to cry its normal to feel resentment even ifs it not fair, its natural and it fits the pattern of this series, this isn't the first time Sorata has felt inferior, Jin is the same way, a key concept is to overcome talent with hardwork and the sheer difficulty of doing so.
InfiniteDestiny already wrote a very good explanation so Ill just add a bit to what he wrote:

Crying in front of someone is really embarrassing to everyone. This is especially true in Japan where everyone is supposed to be happy and hide all negative emotions. Anyone who does is seen as childish and immature.

Sorata also just didn't want anyone to see him in an embarrassing moment of failure since he would feel childish and immature.

so it's very realistic of him to cry.

Okay good I kind of panicked. I always jump ahead of things sigh. XD

@bastek66: Sorry D: I've just seen that development so many times I automatically assume it. Yeah I saw that.

It may be annoying or irritating, but crying like that is something anyone would do in a situation like that. He prepared so much for his presentation, but was surprised by the sudden question, and lost his balance for the rest of the presentation, because that one point in time kept on replaying, replaying, and replaying in his head.

Graphic design is essential to game design however, I think many would place just as much emphasis on programming if not more. After all, most of the core of a game comes from programming. In fact, a lot of graphic design, 3DS Max for example, is made from programming.

In fact, modern technology revolves around programming. But that's a separate topic for another day. Anyways, an Arts degree is not required and I can't say for sure it'll necessarily push you in the right direction either. A lot of companies actually look for prior experience. For example, I heard of cases where people would hire others who had been programming since they were 8 rather than someone who graduated from a university and had never done solo projects or whatever.

It's an interesting topic and I too, was fascinated by it at one point (still am actually). However, after trying it out a bit myself I decided it just wasn't for me. But I can't say that I won't learn any more Computer Science related subjects in the future as they will definitely come in handy in the future.

I really love how they manage to fit both serious and comical aspects into this show. However, I seriously didn't expect that presentation part to hit so close to home, it's really a terrible feeling.

wow, It's been a long time since I enjoy every episode of an airing anime, Sakurasou is one of a few that makes me excited and wait for weekly episode.
Aoyama's kansai dialect never gets bored xD, definitely a plus.
Shiina took care and considered Sorata so much, she gradually changes herself. And, things turn out to be unexpected that Sorata failed the presentation. In the end he had learn that he would need to keep moving on forward.

Once again, the transition between comedy and depressed moments was extremely well performed.

Gosh I love this show more and more with every episode.

man this show just keeps growing on me. Fast becoming one of my favs. I just can't decide between mashiro and aoyoma. It's just so hard man. After that brief Aoyoma arc she started to grow on me. But now mashiro with the charms. I think Sorata is starting to understand how she feels. Looking foward to moreeeeeeee :D

it's time for a new arc and new development. yay. can't wait to see what will happen with aoyama and sorata. Love triangle between mashiro, aoyama, and sorata can also be quite fun. For this episode, the finale for this arc is really good, how sorata manage to overcome his failure and to move forward. And i also starting to love all the characters (especially aoyama >///<). then cuteness when she blush and misunderstand will never get old. (>///<)

Decent episode. I like the mix of drama/romance and comedy in this show. I'm glad that they don't span out some drama incidents througout multiple episodes. Instead they solve it in the end which is better for the pacing imo.

So another girl in the next episode. I really hope this doesn't turn out in a harem, but someone in the forum said she's one of Sorata's childhood friends, so I have lno high hopes at all x.x. For me Mashiro and Nanami are enough. Any other involvement from a girl who likes Sorata will just be a bother for me.

and they are still introducing new character? @@

So Aoyama didn't even realise her own feelings up till now that just seems a bit strange to me she must have realised her feelings for Kanda a long time ago.
Why else would she care so much about him.
Also seems that Kanda is showing more feelings for her that for Shiina so much even that Shiina is a bit jealous of it and i think it will result in more rivalry between Aoyama and Shiina.
Still Aoyama needs to be fast with her feelings Kanda won't remain single forever after all and there more girls around that seem to have feelings for him.

The presentation Kanda was in didn't went very well he was to nervous it was his first importuned presentation after all.
And screwed up because of that his feelings where down and he was thinking of giving up luckily his friends cheered him on to move forward.
As long as he keeps trying there will be a second chance but there is no second chance for those who give up.

The scene where they where hiding from the security guard was pretty funny especially the place where Kanda was between Aoyama and Shiina.
Not to mention Aoyama wasn't wearing panties at that moment which Misaki used to tease her during the last few scenes and Kanda realising how close he was to her.
Still i wonder how Misaki found out seeing the embarrassment of Kanda and Aoyama when Misaki was talking about it.

I got a question related to this episode. What are the general requirements of becoming a real game designer assuming you want to pursue a career in it?


Well it basically comes down to is two questions:

1. What kind of game do you want to design (wch will determine the type of programming and what type of game engine to be used) and

2. How much do you love programming?

Programming is not something extremely fun, let me tell you that up front, it is basically headache and hair pulling at its finest but if it is what you always wanted to do, then its a different story. Coding is the fundamental core of gaming and being able to integrate this with graphic design and sound is basically a game. The worst part of coding any programmer will tell you..., is that writing code is easy..., writing correct code is fucking hard lol..., cuz when you compile everything..., you biggest concern is not that it doesnt run and you get an error...., it is that it runs and spits out crap.

A degree in fine arts is a great place to start if you dont have any coding experience, whilst a degree in computer science or even engineering can set you up in the same way. The arts degree is just more centered around gaming. IIRC Full Sail university have one such degree.

If you want to try your hand at it..., i would suggest learning something basic and making a game from it. Like learning some C# code and using a C# compiler. With that it is possible to make some games for the old school Xbox. For my final project in com sci, we made a card game using that.

Lastly, the type of games; If you have some skills in drawing and making sounds..., then making an indie game should be right up your alley. Indie games are quite popular these days. But if you wanna go awesomesauce, like God of War, Final Fantasy, even League of Legends..., you need to work with a team. It takes a team of 30-50 individuals to make a game like those anywhere from 3 - 10 years. Going from alpha to beta takes realllllllly long sometimes.

My advise is to get to coding..., try it out. See if you like it and have the passion to keep at it. It's basically the only way to know if this is for you. Hope this was helpful in one way or the other.

No panties; no life!

Watching it over now with the english subs..., the irritation factor i felt towards Sorata crying was reduced a bit. With that being said and with the exception of that scene, everything else was pure awesomesauce! The comedy and the SorataxShiina moments totally made this episode for me. Shiina is clearly getting jealous of the fact that Sorata keeps talking about Nanami and I'm looking forward to seeing her do some extreme things to get his attention.

Misaki got alot of screen time this episode..., and did she ever deserve it. She is my 2nd favorite character in this anime and for good reason. Makes me WTF everytime i think Jin is so tsundere to her. Thank god the interactions of Nanami was so little and the focus of the romance was between the main pair. Hopefully the anime keeps this trend thru out the remaining episodes. Doing that will ensure a solid 8 in my ratings.

The pool part of the anime was just pure win in every way. Shiina going all HNGGG wanting Sorata to compliment her on her mizugi. Then...., DAT SMILE! As for Misaki, i can't wait for Yumekichi to post the screenshots of her lol. Nanami without panties was just insane. If only Sorata had looked up lol. Finally Sorata realizing something all adults learn, failing at something is a good thing..., it means you have found one way (or more) of not doing something right. To quote Thomas Edison: I have not failed 1,000 times. I have successfully discovered 1,000 ways to NOT make a light bulb.

Overall, it was a great episode. From the preview it seems we are finally getting to meet Rita, Shiina's old caretaker. We will also get to see the other member of Sakurasou in person most likely. Next episode should be interesting to say the least.

Episode Naxcore: 4.51 out of 5
