Haha excellent episode. Them endings! And occasional 4th wall destruction too

It wouldn't be over exaggerated to say that I live for this anime <3

Is it me or the art changed a bit this episode? (and last one too)

Wow, this anime has really been enjoyable since episode 4.
This was even better than last weeks episode.
Loved the whole discussion on her hair.

Finally out of school and chilling at Natsuki's house!
Everyone getting an ahoge at the end was hilarious.
Gawds I love this anime.

Lots of off-model faces this episode. Also, Sakura's socks disappeared in the scene where she's on Natsuki's bed, only to reappear in the next shot of her still on said bed. The humour was good though, especially the reactions to the news about the brother and the scenes in Natsuki's house.

A nice cute episode about Natsuki and her fruit.
It hangs off of her so it's a fruit right?
I mean there was that song "Strange Fruit" a while back.

Poor Lloyd, what did he ever do to deserve such an abusive sister?
I go by many names, some call me Hoshimaru, others call me Jiro or Aosou-Kun.
I believe myself a force for good, a papercrafter by trade, and one who seeks love and beauty animesque.

I gotta admit, this episode made me laugh on some scenes, much more better than the previous episode.

So a chill out at Natsuki's house, and introducing her brother Lloyd in this episode. So many ahoge scenes, which makes me lol. Also the ending performing CPR on "Natsuki" was priceless.

I just realized Natsuki VA was the one voiced Akiko from OniAi... wow,is it really the same person..?
guhehe.. I wish they made a second season.

Her 'living' ahoge reminds me of Katagiri Himeko from paniponi dash, lol.
The curse of the clothes hanger! what kind of curse is that.

Love the new ED and the horror of the ahoge!

Yeah, Kido Ibuki is her name, and the only seiyuu that really passes muster in this anime in my view - granted a few of the seiyuu, noticeably the ones who voice Sakura and Botan have improved over time, but still the voice-acting is still really weak.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

This was a really entertaining episode. I like how this episode poked fun of Natsuki's ahoge. Even in the mini-theater too, haha!

The siblings are both tsukkomis! And that's an awesome new ED! :D

So many references to earlier parts of the series.
Weekly light novel releases (from 20/10/2014)
Bestselling light novel volumes of the year/all time* (and more in the same club).
*that there is data for

There is no such thing as shit taste. Only idiots who think everyone should have the same taste as they do.

What is the secret of this show? It keeps improving with every passing episode.

Loved the last segment and the theater, though I prefer the previous Botan-tan ED. Quite a lot of off-model shots due to budget as well...

Even the shampoo bottles had ahoges on them, someone help me, laughed so much it hurts to breathe. 5/5.

When you first said this I wasn't too sure but now I agree: this show could really use a veteran seiyuu or two.

Adding a HanaKana, Yui Ogura, or Iori Nomizu would help this show tremendously. Kido Ibuki, who doesn't have much experience, is the veteran here and she was much better in OniAi and GJ-bu, playing a boke role. She is trying admirably here as the tsukkomi but her energetic style is more suited to boke characters in my opinion.

Shows of this genre are more dependent on voice acting than other types of shows. Hiring these rookie seiyuu will save money now but cost them money later, when it comes to disc sales and merchandise.

Guess Natsuki will never talk about her little brother again when she makes new friends she must have a trauma by now.
I laughed when Natsuki ordered her little brother to come in 2 seconds and when she mentioned the time in the bathroom.
Also liked how she scolded him.

Agree with that. There were moments when it was very bad.

AOTS (Ahoge of the Season) - is even better than lucy's
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

The animators probably wanted to get their overtime paid and were ransacked in a jiffy! Or people really thought the comment on episode one about this series having a low number of frames per second was a joke? They hired the cheapest VA they could find so it should be no surprise they are making the animation as cheap as possible. They would have used vocaloid for the voice acting if they knew how to tune the voices enough and they are regretting not animating from the start the whole series as 3D mini theatre at the end.

great episode

okay, I admit it.. just like natsuki, I thought the other club members already forgot about natsuki's lil brother since the next record is something about poet, xD

and then they suddenly showed up on natsuki's house, lol

it's been a while since this show managed to trick me

new ending is song is nice
I guess each of the VAs has their own duet ending song now :3

This was great episode on many levels, anime is really getting better. I like how they mentioned little brother and then dedicated following story to something different. Poor brother to have sister like that. Though I would like to discover more about him. Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge scissors reference :D And that cowlick afterstory felt so Azumang-ish.

Edit: I also miss old ED, it was a lot better at least for me.

I like the new ED. And Natsuki breaks the fourth wall again, awesome.

Cool, Natsuki has a younger brother named Lloyd.
Sakura seems to be retorting during that poem part.
The seal is still perverted.

Dat ahoge. It will not be stopped until it takes over the world.
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.

Did Botan just kill Lloyd?! This episode was pretty funny. I like how even they were talking about Natsuki's ahoge. It use to bother me I. The first few episodes but then I got use to it. It doesn't bother me as much anymore. Natsuki has a teddy bear. A new ED and that last scene with the ahoge. CPR to the ahoge! I liked the previous Ed better. Good episode.

I liked how Sakura was humming the OP song.

The BSOD changed the ED song? lol
Nice to see the other girls in the ending (not just Botan-chan).

Guess I'm one of the rare few who was annoyed at the mc and her friends in the entire scene with her little brother. I didn't see any reason why the mc had such an attitude problem towards her brother. And what really got on my nerves is they're all acting like jerks, he gets rightly angry and then he gets hit for it despite the other characters being (mainly the mc) hypocrites. All that scene did was make me dislike the mc even more than I already did.
