THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Ah, screw such busy life. The episode was nice though.
I think Onda-sans idea for the Curry-"ah" was stupid. The one with the turban was way better.

Yes, the turban was way cooler than some leaves. Then, I didn't get the word joke.

Such a depressing feeling towards the end, I hope everything will settle down in the twelve minutes of episode nine...

I liked the cat with the turban. It was really sad when she couldn't go to the date.

Where did i go wrong... this episode is marked as episode nine, and... the one marked 8 focuses on that accounting girl being drunk... Ah-ha, figured it out.. i watched the special, as its considered ep 7.5, thats why it was labeled 8..

Anyway, good episode poor Matsumaru :(

i understand that he was upset, but that was a big breakthrough for her, if he cared he would have understood that she needed to go to help her career!

Yeah, I can't exactly blame Aka for skipping the dinner for extra money, though I would be very upset if someone did that to me. What aggravates me, though, is her way of making up - or lack thereof. She basically said "Oh, sorry" and expected Matsumaru to get over it. Just "sorry" doesn't fucking cut it. Are you going to schedule another dinner to make up for this one, or are you just going to shrug your shoulders, "oh well"?

Damn, this anime makes me angry.

After having such a bad day anyone would blow up like that, I'm happy for Onda though.

I understand Matsu's anger. Aka tried to keep the peace but did so in a way that was more abrasive than helpful. However, this episode lacked emotion and dramatic effect for me. It was just fine, but I think it fell quite flat.
moving on.

She wanted to eat with him at home when she got back.

Its about normal life and normal life is flat... but I like this anime because its so normal ;)

Matsumaru can be depressed but if he would stop and think for a moment he would see that he acted childishly. Then he could cheer up with spending time with Oka when she got back and not sulking in dark room.
I've always defended Matsumaru. It's the first time I think he did bad, though.

I hate it when anime/manga that I enjoyed ends, especially when there could be much longer plot and when I love main heroine :P

I wish I had magic glasses that let me see real world in anime colors ;)

Does anyone know who the seiyu was for the recording booth scene @4.25-30? He sounds very familiar but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Damn Matsumara really went through some shit this episode

I don't quite know what to think of this episode. It was easily the best directed so far, but Matsumaru was such a bitch about what happened that it sours the whole thing. It's so frustrating that it's cathartic. It almost has to be intentional.
