Another great episode. That whole Operation Nagato was hilarious -- and was I the only one reminded of Nichijou by that cafe scene? :D

Also, that new ED. What the hell? :D

Good episode.
Wow, every time she does the same thing she is doing that is quite a little serious. Like at the end she doesn't even know where is she going. Shame for her brother got to deal with Tomoko with the situations.
Lol, that scene when her brother squeezed Tomoko's face lol!
4/5

Haruhi, a franchise that is still making its way to references more than 6 years later. Well, if Tomoko thought G was for Giant, she shouldn't have been surprised at the size of the Grande Cappucino she ordered.

Tomoko, way in over her head with that red-light district stuff. I remember a chapter like this, but the later part seemed to have been changed, IIRC.

The hell was that special ED... It's a parody of an old show, apparently.

Correct. See Post #3 on this thread by kaitenyaki.

The special ED is a close copy of the style of the ED of the old Japanese anime
series まんが日本昔ばなし (Manga nippon mukashi banashi) which started airing
back in 1975.

Here is the original version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mv8NEA6-gRY

Over the years, there were many different versions of the ED. That version is
titled にんげんっていいな and it was used in 1984, 1985, 1986 and 1987. This
version has been covered and parodied many times, as you can see if you do
a search on YouTube for にんげんっていいな.

All of the episodes were just ten minutes long after the OP and the ED were
removed. You can find many of them if you go to YouTube and search for
まんが日本昔ばなし. Unfortunately, they are not subbed.

The source of this information (in Japanese) is here:
http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%81%BE%E3%82%93%E3%81%8C%E6%97%A5%E6%9C%AC%E6%98%94%E3%81%B0%E3%81%AA%E3%81%97

It is from Chapter 28 in the manga. The anime follows it fairly closely. But
you are right that it was changed at the end. The anime is the same as
the manga up to the part where Tomoko's mom phones her. The anime
then shows those visually overwhelming scenes as Tomoko returns back
home. I give credit to the anime creators that they know when to add
original additional content while being faithful to the manga.

Finished catching up to the series today. Really enjoyable so far. Probably the second best anime of the season for me behind Silver Spoon.

That part at the end with the street spinning around Tomoko is going to be
timeless. Does anybody have any idea what part of Tokyo that is based on?
Also, what are those woman dolls on top of the frames on top of that car?

- - - - - - -

Here are my predictions for Episode 6 tomorrow. It will be based on the
following chapters from the manga...

Based on what they have been doing in past weeks, about ten hours from
now, if you go to this webpage, you will be able to see five still images
from Episode 6: http://www.watamote.jp/story/

I predict that they will come out with an OVA which will include all of the
offensive, obscene, disgusting and depraved parts. So just be patient.

This show picked up from episode 3 onwards imo :) I'm really enjoying it now, wonder what kind of direction it will take in the end, if any? :D or will we just keep on observing her trying different methods in order to get popular forever?

Based on the five still images of Episode 6 that have been posted on the
official website, it appears that Episode 6 will be based on manga chapters

Admittedly, I found this ep to be hilariously funny. The cappuccino, photo booth and scenes with her brother were all great. Odd ED though.

I found the scenes with her brother hilarious, but I couldn't stand the others. They felt over dramatic and a bit forced.

What are you talking about? It's pretty clear that this girl has some seriously difficult social problems. Her social problems and her way of thinking and stuff are the reasons this show is good. It would suck if she were a "normal" girl.

Also, how can you complain about improvement? I think she's making a lot of improvement regarding her social anxiety.

Well, this episode was fun. But Tomoko really likes to annoy her brother. It was fun when all the stamps with her funny poses were in all her brother's room.

But he's a guy. It's already twilight And yet, it's so hot. The cicadas are crying. But... He's a guy."

Some people want her to change completely, kinda like how Yuu changed. They don't want to look at a socially dysfunctional girl who stays inside her shell all throughout the show.

I think the show works better with Tomoko slowly improving, but not actually changing (much). It would be nice if she, way down the line, improves to the point where she can casually talk to random people and make some friends, but she doesn't have to become super-popular like Yuu and/or completely change her image.

Too bad, Tomo seems to be back to her downward spiral of mental indolence and flash, but something more explicit muove.Trama as we can be. Fabulous narration during the photo and brother! I was bending over with laughter! XD
Tomoko it's so worth it when it is so sad to see, I always take a big headache! T_T
In the end it's so tender then! ^ _ ^
