Why does the sweet, caring, well developed girl who loves the MC ALWAYS get shit on in anime?

Assuming he picks Mashiro I might just go break a bunch of holes in my walls.

Why the fuck would anyone pick a mentally handicapped husk of their best friend JUST BECAUSE she is pretty?

Yeah..idiot number 1. If the characters were all 'normal' there would be no plot. That's why your life isn't made into an anime.

FK, Sorota sure got a really sore butt. He would have cried and punched them both in the face if he found out that he didn't pass at the ending..

Idiot number 3. His name is 6 letters is it hard to get 6 letters correct..? Otherwise that's a really good point lol.

I highly doubt it's just because she's pretty. Seems pretty clear to me that the writer is making a point that Sorata has a tendency of 'not being able to simply leave helpless creatures to fend for themselves'(like his cats). That plus his admiration of Mashiro's work ethic and talent are probably more pertinent factors into what figures into the equation of his 'love' for her. Although probably that's going to develop into something cheesy like oh actually I really love you for who you are or some cliched crap later on.

Whatever it is, I really hate people like him with a vengeance. On the outside it seems like he's caring and considerate but at the end of the day all he does is be an indecisive jerk who blows off his steam at his friends, people he supposedly cares for, when things are not all smooth sailing for himself. On top of that, all he really cares for is himself and he helps Mashiro because he couldn't goddamn mind his own business and later on just uses her as a role model, deceives her with his fake ass nice words and gets her to fall for him and then starts being the self centered bastard that he is and doesn't even give a proper response to her feelings for him. What's worse, he two-times Nanami and continues acting like a clueless innocent jerk and plays with their feelings as if he's some bigshot.

Wow, that bit with Aoyama, surprised she managed that so well after she just finished talking herself in to confessing to him once her auditions are over ... And Misaki, again is left alone, crying. I don't really get why Jin is worrying so much about what he is (I mean it makes sense, but at the same time he is traumatizing the one he loves) ... Well, next episode might be fun, wonder how Sorata's parents are.

I really hope Nanami somehow gets a good ending. They need to introduce a god guy fast so Nanami can end up with someone who isn't Soraka. Nanami is too good for him anyways! But I can always respect the girl's love interest so I want her to end up with him but as it stands, she has no chance.

Mashiro always uses pity and helplessness to get Soraka's attention. It's not on purpose of course, shes a clumsy girl but it kind of makes it feel to me like shes cheating or something LOL.

Ouch. Arg. Hnnng. Too much feels...

Ugh, Nanami crashed on Mashiro iceberg. She fall right in the trap...
But seriously, she didn't need to hear that. Fuck, fuck, fuck. God dammit, you said that you would tell your feeling! :(
I really love Mashiro, she's an amazing character, but I just don't want Nanami to be left out without having the chance to confess before the end. But I'm sure that that confession will come later, after her audition. ''Lances yourself in the cosmos!'' xD

Jin rejecting Misaki... Although, I understand that in his ideal scenario, he didn't want to see Misaki naked begging him for sex. He wanted her to love him, but not in that way. It was a wrong move from Misaki, but it's understandable that she thought of that in that chrismas eve situation.

It was a really cute episode, with a lot of sad truth.

I really loved the preview of the next episode : ''Mmm, my boy bring three girls home. They sure grew fast...''. Oh my god, from the bit we saw when he called his familly, I'm sure they'll be fucking crazy xD

Pretty much.

Lol Nanami never had a chance, which made half the episode pretty pointless imo.

Poor Misaki, she still couldn't get Jin to truly take her.

LOL at Maid-chan not letting Rita talk to Ryuunosuke.

Aoyama was very good this episode and cute as well.

Shiina showing emotions as well was refreshing to show.

I am so glad Mashiro and Sorata made up. Sorata has been a total dick last episode and the start of this one as well. I guess he is to naive of a character to think rationally. Also, Mashiro looks so cut in that dress!

I love how maid-chan can have legit conversations with the freeloader.

Darn it this was the turning point where it will go towards the Shiina x Sorata direction, I was really hoping for a Nanami x Sorata.

Sorata still a dick, honestly. If he deosn't get better soon enough I think I can call him the worst main character ever.

Anyway, I think this is the second time I really felt sad for the second girl falling for the main character, after Ami from Toradora. Honestly, Nanami is pretty cool character, so it's kinda sad that she has no real chance.

;~; you guys have a good point; now I'm truly liking Nanami over Mashiro! Maybe Mashiro will have some more emotion later on, but Nanami's shyness is really cute. Oh well...

Down to business: This episode took maximum overfeel and put it into a new gear (if there's even a term for that). When the conveniently placed ambulance went off, that truly had me worried as well. In fact, it made me care more about Mashiro again.

Now Nanami... 'tis a shame. That promise is gonna be the big confession most likely and Mashiro and Sorata are only getting closer and closer.

Misaki and Jin -- I don't play much mind to those two but I'm sure Jin is struggling internally at some point and there's a part that Misaki doesn't understand about it all. Looks like our comedic relief is out for a while.

Ryounnosuke and Rita -- lol, that's all I can say.

Sorata's getting his chance at the presentation once again, which will definitely lead up to more excitement.

This episode really highlights how this anime makes the viewer feel along with the characters -- especially Sorata (or Nanami/Mashiro, if you're a girl). I might have actually found an anime on the ToraDora tier.

Love, love, loving it.

I really enjoy this anime so far. The only thing that bothers me is that someone will end up heartbroken and depressed. And that episode shows me that I'm right. I'm cheering for Nanami too but I don't want Shiina to end up being left alone. I'm afraid Nanami will be stereotypical character that will never confess to MC and Sorata will be too blind to notice her feelings. Rest of characters have satisfying action going around them. I like and understand Jin struggle. Hopefully this anime will pull off a good ending.

Mashiro's distinct personality/character is becoming more visible, as she spoke in a manner very unusual from her for second time. Most likely it's due to her emotional side which she recently established. So far it only emerged when Sorata is mad at her. Interesting development.

This is a small nitpick, but I purposely stopped paying too much attention since I'm really not liking the drama. I think it was in the last episode where Christmas was stated o be around the corner. Out of context, I wouldn't have been able to tell. It continues to look like perpetual spring with the characters not acting any differently with regards to the season. Of course, the characters themselves are acting differently, and it conveniently occurs during the time of the year where we're supposed to be nice to each other.

I somewhat get the reasons behind the characters' actions, but I'm honestly not paying much mind to it. The back-to-back flips between fast comedy and hard drama just seems insincere, and I feel that if I were to really pay attention, I'd just end up disliking the show as a whole. I don't want to dislike this show, as it feels like it's trying its damn hardest to do whatever Toradora did.

Comparatively, Toradora seemed to flow better and knew how to separate its comedic and serious moments. While I could argue that Sakurasou does comedy better, it suffers whenever it tries to be serious. There's too much explanation about what the characters are feeling. I can't feel for the characters when I'm already being told what to feel, and while I know that other shows are guilty of this as well, Sakurasou makes it too obvious by how the explanations are emphasized and the hard shifts in tone highlighting them.

This is actually quite strange. Normally I'd enjoy listening to characters talk about their thoughts, but this just isn't working. I suppose it doesn't help when Shiina, who is the soft spoken expressionless doll-like character, has constantly talked and expressed emotions from the earliest of episodes. The setup is taking care of a helpless, attractive, and amazingly talented girl who has no common sense to speak of, and thus must be taught not just how to dress herself, but to feel emotions including love. This reeks so much of intentional waifu bait that I'm tempted to rewatch other romance/comedy/drama shows I've seen to check if I unconsciously missed anything.

Sakurasou is a show I want to like, especially since it's rated so high. I'm a firm believer that every show has its own merits, and when a show is rated highly, there should be something that allowed it to draw a crowd, even if I'm personally not part of that crowd. I think that this show gets its strength from its eccentric comedy, it's nice art, and from drama enthusiasts eating up the different personalities headbutting each other, but even then I don't know. It makes me feel like I'm not "getting" the show when I'm actually watching. When I get invested in the comedy - and I do like the comedy - the drama serves as a brick wall to crash into. When I get invested in the drama - and some of it actually works - a comedic or fan service scene pops up and prevents me from taking anything seriously. I've seen complains before of various shows starting off as comedies before nosediving into drama, but I actually like those setups. There's a constant flow that doesn't change its course, and it works much better than running and breaking nonstop like an excited teenager's first time trying to drive a car.

Gah, it bugs me so much that Sorata is obsessed with Mashiro basically being a robot and working with no regard for anything else. But once she starts developing personality and character, he doesn't like her as much. Who the hell feels that way?

Anyhow, I also don't like ED as much as any of the other OPs and EDs in this series. The song is nice, but the animation is really bland and repetitive, especially when compared to the other ones.

I wouldn't use the term "dislike" here, I think he's more confused about it. Especially that the festival seemed to be a catalyst for their feelings. Not mentioning the fact that he doesn't want Mashiro to fail due to her sudden change.

Heh, the teachers drowning their Christmas Eve sorrows were... cute? Same goes with Rita's and Maid-chan's catfight.

For me Jin doesn't pull any casanova bullshite right now, he rather doesn't feel mature enough for Misaki, no matter how silly it sounds.

As for Nanami, well, she rose the romance death flag this episode. There's no chance she'll get through the February audition and confess her feelings. That said, my ship was sunk. :(

I was absolutely furious after episode 13, and I was reaching boiling point when Sorata had yet another hissy fit at Mashiro when she was trying to make up with him early into episode 14. Everyone keeps saying "Sorata is a very realistic character. You can't blame him for acting the way he does." OH YES I CAN. Call me a cliché but a man who makes a girl sad or cry is trash in my eyes. If I saw this scenario play out in front of me, I'd punch the guy involved in the face. Even if they were my best friend. Get a grip! I think that's the problem with Sorata here. There is no one properly correcting him. He doesn't see his own mistakes, and no one helps him realize. He's the generic ignorant MC with added douchbaggery on top. Even if I were in his shoes, I'd NEVER take it out on someone. No one deserves that kind of treatment.

Like many others I found Sorata growing rather annoying recently. I mean I relate Sorata but damn, you gotta get over these things, man.

Also, stop getting your hopes up so much. An industry like that will destroy you if you don't suck down a bit of modesty, as new as you are to the art of game design.

Still an all-around good episode. I feel bad for everyone.

Perhaps it is not really the characters here (Sorata for example) that is the problem but the whole play out of the episode in general. I think it had potential, but generally speaking it was really just a montage of verbal exchanges between characters that really didn't develop the characters as much as it should have. Certainly not the worst episode but definitely not the best in my opinion.

I'm baffled by some of the things I'm reading on this thread, and that's saying something...

As @s2012k1993 correctly pointed out, Jin and Sorata are in love with Misaki and Mashiro but yet they feel like they'd inhibit their potential if they were to confess to them. They are other reasons of course (like Jin's inferiority complex) but this is the primary one.

Maybe they're wrong. They surely are. But that doesn't interfere with the fact that they really don't wanna cause trouble to Misaki and Mashiro, hence why they reject them, at least on surface. They do so cause they sincerely care for them, something that one could argue is the very proof of their sincere love towards them.

They're not 'shitty' or 'ballless' characters. Actually, they're pretty well-written.

Are Japanese men really this dense?

I just don't get Jin, like I'm trying to understand his logic but it just makes no sense to me.

I feel like this show is trying too hard to force the drama, while when I watched shows like Toradora I felt like it was more natural and flowed well with the story. I don't know I watched this show specifically because I wanted a rom com/drama but I'm just not feeling the drama so far.

Judging by the way this show is going I don't think this will happen but I think Nanami is a better choice for a relationship with the MC, it just looks like the only thing mashiro has got going for her is her helplessness while not her fault and I do enjoy her character I just don't see a romantic relationship there with the MC, she seems more like a little sister than anything else. But the direction seems pretty clear at this point Nanami is obviously the 'other' girl.

I don't hate this show in fact I want to like it but I just think the drama could be better. Well just have to see how the remaining episodes go I guess.

I've started to like this ending song "Prime number" more with this episode :) The endings in this anime are much better than openings ;]
Mashiro is not a bad girl, actually she is cute, but I still think Nanami is much greater.

Misaki being nude brought confessions to another level xD

Not much to say, besides that it was a festival of feels again, Mashiro was able to convey her feels, it was so simple,but that's what made it so great.Some tears were shed :'(

And while I'm rooting for Sorata and Mashiro I can't deny my frustration over Nanami in the friendzone :/

Great episode. I like how everything was set up. The scenes where everybody was thinking the same things were executed nicely. Everyone seems to like somebody, but can't actually say it
