THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Not bad for OP song I guess.

The glasses were kinda cute on Setsuna; her dress too~
I'm still not much into the drama yet but it was a cute episode imo.

I like the theme song of this show so far though. Dat ending.

Episode was okay, but on the karaoke scene was cute. Also like Setsuna's dress that she picked, pretty good. So Kazusa appears, but just less screen time until that ending scene, nice saved.

UGH THEY PLAYED "CLOSING" THE ED FOR WHITE ALBUM 2'S TRUE ENDING

THIS IS DUMB
I work in VNs. Sometimes, they have h-scenes and I go "waai~". I also like to not write at Oppai is Justice, a blog with great urls.

Tuning in at half the episode, I apparently missed some QUESTIONABLE SCENE, a shoutout to the first WA, and some Setsuna fanservice involving her rear.

Then there's Closing chapter's ED being used.

It's Coda, mind you. It's the ending for White Album 2. This is an awful adaptation. Why???

Does the misplacement of an ED really sink an adaptation?

The episode was a super-bland 1:1 adaptation unlike the first episode and has awkward fanservice shots. And playing "Closing" this early is like playing After Story's ending song in the beginning of Clannad episode 2.

Great Great Great! I love this anime. This type of anime is rare. The story is well-written, and execution is perfect. Ogiso is likable. So are other characters. I was impressed at her hidden life. I like her. Kinda fresh for me to see such a nice girl in anime. Just hope everything was not Haruki's delusion. But then I saw the mysterious pianist at the end. She is cool. It was quite an impressive moment when she gave Haruki a helping hand from a window. It blew my mind. I like her best.

This show is a gem of the season. Looking forward to next episode.

It'll finally be my turn to be elitist about VN adaptations next year with Grisaia and the new F/SN. Can't wait.

Until then I'll simply have to enjoy things ignorantly.

As a non VN reader I have to say I love this anime! And I may need to stop coming in here to see how much the VN readers think it sucks...

And I approve of a little (or a lot) of fanservice so a few shots like that, why not??? Geez!

Love the music, I think this could be another great musical anime partnership between Starchild and Satelite!

This is pretty interesting so far, I don't see what's wrong with the fan service, it wasn't anything bad and it was very brief as well. But this looks good so far, Touma seems like she'll be an interesting character. I can't say much since I haven't played the VN, but did they happen to change any of the scenes in this episode, besides adding the fanservice?

DAT OP!!!
DAT ED!!!
Both are sooo good!!

Loved the episode too.
The first half with Setsuna was really nice.
She's really cute. And the scene when she said "Now u know all my secrets" was so sweet <3

Second half was amusing as well.
Loved the comedy Takeya provided :D...His interactions with Haruki are hilarious.
Such good friends ^^
And both are really good characters :D

Last scene was amazing!!! Liking Kazusa from the moment I saw her.
Her voice wasn't what I expected. But I love it.
Her cold gaze as she was holding Haruki up was really cool :D

Can't wait for more. Loving this series so much ^^

"Ogiso, I'm sorry but I'm going to take advantage of your weakness" #LinesWithoutContext

There's just something about this anime that "clicks" nicely
- The exchanges between Ogiso and Haruki
- The triangle in the making between Kazusa, Ogiso, and Haruki
- The basic but polished visuals
- The OST(The insert songs especially)
- The dialogue
- Haruki's go getter personality

New arrangement of Todokanai Koi is not so good as original one but I still like the OP. And EP otherwise was good. Waiting for more.

Putting ~coda~ ending theme as the second episode ending theme is definitely a bad idea, although I have to admit there is a little difference between the two of them.

Eww, I don't know. The entire episode was really predictable. I mean, it didn't come as a surprise that she was the mysterious student. Was that even supposed to surprise the viewer in the first place? They made such a big deal about it, after throwing hints everywhere, in every shape.
On the Setsuna side, was the fanservice really necessary?

So what's with the "this adaptation is awful"? Now you're reminding me to go back to the Little Busters: Refrain subforum.

So should I lower my expectations here or something as a VN-anime adaptation?



Anyway, as for this episode. Well, it's okay. I'm getting attached to Setsuna(Not sure why I'm easily getting attached to orange-haired girls lately). Hope she will win though. :D

Pay no mind to him, he's just ridiculously upset they used a certain song for the ending.

No, they're just a bit blinded because it's not perfectly how they wanted it to be. The fanservice they're complaining about was there, but it wasn't in-your-face or trying to jiggle or anything. Trust me, if these two episodes are a 'bad adaptation', then the standards for LN adaptations should be extremely high, but quite realistically, that's not the case at all.

So that's the only issue?

Well, I guess it's too early to tell how's this adaptation.

Anyway, I can hopefully say that I might keep my expectations here high with the surprisingly score of Closing Chapter at VNDB.

And uh fanservice shots and that they changed the ending's nuance completely (Kazusa was supposed to be confused, not angered; the line is changed completely). Nothing worth discussing.

On another note, this episode's "subtle" spoiler shots that I missed the first time are funny.

Even as a girl, I found Kazusa's voice pretty sexy. ;D Great meeting but Haruki is dumb for the window thing, lol. I wonder how he can even hold on for that long. *3*

Loving this love triangle in the making~

Whoa. Didn't expect Touma's voice to be that low. I kind of expected the typical cold girl voice from her. Anyway, decent episode. Not gonna expect that much from this show from now on.

I could do without all the boob and ass shots, some fanservice isn't bad but this got to the wrong side of intrusive imo. Then again, in Touma's case they may have been doing that purely to hide her face. Maybe.

Other than that, I liked the episode. Interesting choice for Touma's voice, are these the same seiyuu as in the VN? I like this sort of different choice.

Yes, she is the same voice actor as in "Shiawase no Mukougawa".

Agreed with the over-fanservice. But I was expecting that since this is about a guy's love triangle.

The prefix over- implies that it's bad when compared to other anime with reasonable, non-zero levels of fanservice. Not that it's bad when compared to zero fanservice.

The fact that I pay attention to it and distracts me from the show itself makes me think it's overdoing it a bit. :X

Ignore those "VN reader" trolls. I don't see any problem with the ending despite being a song from Coda. Fan service is appropriate( Heck, the VN is an eroge).

One thing I dislike is that they intentionally hide Kazusa for so long. In the VN, she appeared much earlier.

Other than that, this anime adaption is AWESOME!

Really liking the music for this series. It's also uncommon for me seeing a female character being so straightforward and just being able to talk with the main character like a normal person.

they used the coda OP (and made it worse)...

On the other hand this was a terribly BORING episode, not because of the adaptation, IC was just that bad.
