Eh, that trip didn't seem so fun. And Koko spotted in starry eyed mode not that I'm surprised. I liked the bonding between Koko and Banri this episode again I guess. They better run~

Shame Banri has an amnesia though...

Linda spotted :3

Yeah you just joined a cult Tada, I would've freaked out like 2D-kun if that happened to me

YES! That dramatization of how Mitsuo and Koko would get together is the kind of interplay that needs to happen more often between Tada and Kouko. The more sarcastic and goofy they are together the better : D The forest bonding was when I realized what kind of series I was getting into when I first read it.

Koko I'm sure someone hasn't told you this but things don't always go to plan

Though he's not as eccentric as manga Tada the anime Tada Banri is interesting and strong in his own right.

Whoa THAT's going to happen next episode already if they're at the punk concert in the preview?

Aw Yis!
This is a weird one for me, on one hand it's really annoying but on the other its really good, eh.

I still like the relationship between Tada and Yandere.

Brave Banri this episode, lots of interaction between him and Koko as well.

I don't know what reason the show will come up with to answer why Koko is so obsessed with Mitsuo...

Linda coming in to save the day again, preview for next episode seems interesting.

was there a Babara in the first 2 episodes or does that mean he's starting to regain his memories?

Well that trip fell apart pretty quickly haha. The whole forest part was pretty cute. Nice seeing more development between Banri and Kouko.

It was interesting hearing Banri talk about his accident since they kind of used it as a cliffhanger on the first episode.

Hmm, I wonder who Barbara is. Maybe someone from before he lost his memories?

Tada keeps getting more and more interesting. One of the best rom/com MCs I've seen in a long time. I'm glad this is a 2 cour show, so hopefully his character will keep getting fleshed out and more and more interesting!

Really enjoyed this ep.

Glad to see 2D-kun reappearing. Hopefully he'll be a recurrent character. I'm liking him ^^

Damn that Cult is creepy as hell esp the end O~O

Banri saving the day like a BOSS!

Kouko and Banri's conversation was really really nice.

Kouko's really dependent on Mitsuo so I really can't wait to see what the trigger that will release her from this obsession will be.

And Banri's view on his pre/post-amnesia self is really interesting. I'm really liking his character development so far.

Yay for more Linda. Also wondering who Barbara is?

Nxt ep, MitsuoxChinami? Let's see how that goes.

Still can't get over how cute the OP&ED are <3

Tada having amnesia is quite interesting, but yet sad because he lost all his past memories. Kouko was quite cute in this episode, and to be honest not annoying. The whole religious group was seen coming. Once I saw the strange necklace on the club members I knew it was going to turn bad for Tada and Kouko.

Oh boy Tada forgot who Linda is and mistook her for Barbara. Well glad to see Barbara get like 5 seconds of screen time. She's my favorite character along with Tada and Kouko.

Anmesia is quite cliche but I think they're handling it well so far and I really like Tada. Plus his name is fun to say and hear. Really enjoying the romance even if Kouko gets on my nerves with how obsessed she is with Mitsuo. Can't get over how cute the OP and ED is.

I love the whole part where Banri talks about his amnesia and going through the thought of personal identity. Is personality and your memories what constitutes who you are, or is not? I remember learning this in philosophy class, but it's awlays more interesting to see it being applied. It's sad that he didn't know how to face his friends and family after the accident because he didn't want to let them down, wodering if they would rather have the old him back.

It was also nice that he and Kouko had that talk, even though again, it's kind of a hit for Banri when he sees that Mitsuo is basically her world. I think it would hurt too to hear that she believes the real her is when she's with Mitsuo, so bascially she's not showing Banri who she really is and he can't do anything about it. But honestly it's probably just what she believes, because she's seems just as natural, if not more, when she is with Banri.

Lastly, yay Linda to the rescue! (just noticed that she's voiced by Kayano the heck did I not recognize her voice before this episode?!?!)

Wow. I didn't expect that club to be a cult.

Also, we finally learned more about Banri.
Luckily, we finished up that part with the cult and they got rescued by Linda in the end. Can't wait to see when they reveal what really happened in Tada's amnesia.

What a weird freaking religious cult, I wonder if we will see more of them in the future.

They've really bonded this episode, I wasn't expecting Tada to have amnesia.

Linda rocks! I wonder if Barbara is possibly the name of a past girlfriend?

Well, now the amnesia explains Tada's very "waiting", easy and some people called it dull character. I guess this is somewhat a argument against the criticism about Tada's character. It's only logical for someone who attends a new school who doesn't know anything about himself and his past to be patient and somewhat calmly exploring his "new life", right?

Character development is on the way for Kouko en Tada, I'm really liking this so far.

That forest scene lasted way too long that I was starting to lose interest just because they were in the same spot for way too long. It's going to suck having to wait to find out who Barbara is.

The drawing had gotten worse and worse. 6/10 for this ep.
Barbara's probably his ex-gf and Linda totally looks like her.
Isayama Hajime should be awarded The Manga with The Highest Inconsistencies of Characters' Appearances.
He keeps performing multiple plastic surgeries on those Shingeki No Kyojin characters in a SINGLE chapter.
Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

I'm loving the character development with this show. 3 episodes into the Anime, and I feel like its already been 10.

The ending to Episode 3 has me hooked, cant wait until the next one.

I'm really happy with the pacing so far. I hope they reveal more about the MC in the next episode.

I haven't felt this attached to a romance series since Toradora. I hope it keeps getting better!

Now Kaga and Tada get along better :), interesting to know that Tada has amnesia really, it's getting interesting this anime.

Tada mistook to Rinda by a "Barbara". There will be some connection with Tada's past? :/

I can totally see a romance brewing between those two, and it's not just my usual shipping proclivities. They've already been through the equivalent of the suspension bridge with the chase through the woods, and that long conversation wasn't just character development.

Tada x Koko developments. I wonder when they will start to feel for eachother a genuinely love. Because for now Koko still seems a lot attached to Mitsuo.
Also 10/10 would join that cult.

Btw, I guess Linda is related to Banri's past, 'cause she appears too much.

I like this episode a lot. This episode explore their character and increase their chemistry.

My bet is that Linda an know Banri from the past.

And that cult is dangerous.

Throughout the cult scenes, I was so scared... o__o That wasn't even slightly appealing.

For now, I'm still hesitant to jump on the Kaga/Tada bandwagon...
