THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I'm not very used to Riko's hair style much this episode..

Still can't get over Maki and her delusional thoughts though..*face palm*. Okay episode I guess, glad some of the members are into the whole experiments thing now.

I was laughing so hard at the first part of the episode. It's like Riko was possessed by Haruka (from Idolmaster)

Riko trying to act more girly was just... awesome and cute, yet kinda scary. I like her better as a tomboy. :3

Sayo got found out. I really don't get the stupid 'forbidden to have a relationship' rule this school has. :/

Looks like we're gonna meet the guy next episode!

Wow they did blackface, was not expecting.

Lol, laughed at the two slowest people chasing each other, also at the wild one's reaction to hearing of her nickname.

Me neither, you'd think they were idols with a no-relationship contract to keep the "pure" image... not saying that situation is justified either, it's also idiotic.

It may help to understand that in Japan lower education (middle & high school) are a lot more important to a youth's future education and career opportunities than elsewhere in the world. Fuji Girls Academy has obviously earned a very good reputation for its students scholarly achievements. It makes sense then that the academy would do what it could to eliminate outside interferences that may disrupt the advancement of its matriculants

Riko's behaviour at the start of this episode was priceless her feminine behaviour was so funny, didn't know she would get that depressed by learning her nickname.
Also her reaction to that picture that scared both Maki and Sayori was also nice.
Maki's behaviour was also nice as usual especially when she tried to impersonate Gospel and Soul singers somehow that gave me the urge to listen to those music styles.

I still find it strange that a school sets rules about what a student does in their private life even after years of watching anime.
Well it's a different culture but still from a European view it's just strange, are way of think is keeping business/school and our private lives separate.
So they way i look at this and from reading the posts several others of you are thinking mind your own business teacher.

IMO it is the same as here (latinamerica), rich/conservative parents like to have their daughters pure so they can easily sellmarry them to the sons of other rich families.If I remember correctly it was outright stated last season in Yuyushiki that Yukari Hinata (the rich but boke ojousama) had already accepted her fate of marrying whoever her family told her to in the future.

I mean, that is the whole trope of Yuri in rich girl only schools, where forbidden love blossom because later on they will have to marry someone they will probably will not love (and might never come to love).

Oh god first part when Riko was being cute was fucking hilarious. I couldn't stop loling. Then that darkface and soul singer oh god. Da fack Student council in trouble.

I'm wishing for a S2. 8 Episodes in and we haven't seen the boys but 2 episodes so far (and one episode where they were only shown at the end.)

Still hilarious without the guys tho.

Haha Riko acting like a nice girl because of the wild girl incident. Though I would prefer her to be in her original self. Looks like the newspaper club has a quarrel with the student council. Some funny moments during the chasing scene and kept on falling down. Huh Sayo was spotted and question about this situation.

Overall funny episode as usual.

Why can't they have boyfriends?
Is it just if they're part of the student council, or is it that strict for everyone?

3/5

In fact, if none of the council members can get boyfriends, this anime will have no progress. Not that I was expecting anything remotely serious or groundbreaking. It's just too innocent, making it boring.

I don't see why a girl's private life should be the school's business. Fair enough they want them to do well, but they had to take entrance exams to even get into the school. They're obviously all bright enough to be there. I don't see how the comparatively innocent dating of Japan (where even just a kiss is a really big deal - girls and boys don't hug unless they're dating) could distract you so haphazardly.

The Mild One was cute, yet creepy at the same time. And I lobe how Suzu was basically in love with the picture that one girl took <3
I want Rambo in a mecha-suit with a laser-chainsaw gun that fires nuclear warheads, fighting the love-child of Predator, Alien, a group of Bangladeshi terrorists, and Satan. (Actually that would be a pretty sick show) - StopDropAndBowl

Okay, as much as I dig the comedy in this episode... In this series in general, actually... This ep was all about Sayo for me. She is my favorite character so far - hilarious, greedy, menacing, snarky, deadpan, whatever you wish (also glasses, always a plus) and she feels completely natural with all this. She's also obviously more nice than she seems, but it doesn't feel like she's hiding it tsundere-style (which would be cliché boring), she just has weird ways of showing kindness. She's the kind of character that almost feels real - which is an incredible feat in an anime about cute moe girls. No kawaii-adorableness, just a lot of great personality. Sure, the other girls have plenty of character too and it's awesome, but they're still very much moe, Sayo is purely personality and I love it!
I also love how different her relationship is from your usual "life being all about one another and nothing else" - and yet it still feels like genuine love, despite the fact that all we get are stories of her being mean to him.

I can't wait for the next episode, though I hope the person in the preview is the ACTUAL boyfriend, not Maki in disguise. How would she even do that anyway, she would have to cut her hair ridiculously short, there's no other way. And I want to meet the guy.

Anyone saying this isn't blackface when they explicitly show a black woman in the background and have them give examples of why their brothers like black women is just straight up ignoring what's in front of them.

That was a funny episode, I want to see more of the "Mild One", she was entertaining to watch. I was caught off guard by that ganguro part though, it was funny though when Riko opened the door and saw Maki like that.

After that, I got pissed off at that teacher, like it's her life, you shouldn't enforce that she can't be in a relationship with guys, the hell is with that? Also, judging by that preview, it looks like Maki is going to pretend to be Sayo's BF xD

Lol at Maki and Riko's reactions when they found out about their nicknames.

The Mild One's pretty cute and awesome. But Makio is still the best!

Lol at that chase scene! Trip here, trip there, trip everywhere!

I just love Maki and her delusional thoughts!

I wonder how the Student Council will solve this new problem.

Favorite quote from this episode:
"Did you give me the "chubby" one first because I'm chubby?"
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.
