A lot of development this episode, the discord between Mitsuo and Koko is settled, and now Tada and Koko... and now Tada learns about his past! Damn. He is with Linda-senpai!!! Holy. Loving all of the development here.

I sensed the previous episode that something was up with that girl. The first tell was Koko being invisible yet one flyer she managed to find somehow miraculously? A bit forced perhaps, but I'm liking the side of her she shows Banri.

However, I don't know where this show i s going right now.

Not bad. I'm looking forward to how Banri and Koko develop.

Lol thought it was hilarious that Tada was calling the one guy 2D-kun. Interesting that the amnesia story turned out to be true though especially due to how it was presented . Good episode.

I knew it was a cult from the moment I saw those uniforms.

This one was really painfull to watch, somehow I really cant stand religious cults. Would have been better if they brawled it out with the fanatics, let them taste the dark fist of the Abyss :D

A religious cult? Didn't see that coming! Nice to see Tada spend some time alone with Kouko.

What episode does not convince most that the contexts is the way to tell which is very incisive on the psyche of the viewer. Plot that starts to make us understand how they should go some joints of the puzzle, now I understand why a certain girl and many have noticed, has some interest in Banri, it is obvious I would say! Drawings and animations really unappealing, this series really loses much of this factor, a real shame! D:
Characters a little less foolish and more mature, as Kouko that earns points this time!
Who do not vote for my choice, should not be more than 3/5! I hope that soon soar the series.

Koko is passed by "metalera". The episode was entertaining, but the moment turned tsundere Koko was funny to see the face of Oka.

since its wrong to judge people's beliefs all i have to say is if you can't clearly come out and tell people what you believe in but instead trick them into travelling to some remote area and trap them you're wrong and insane. Stupid Cult.

Gasp! Getting dragged away by religious cults...

I am just glad that Banri escaped, and if it were to go on any longer with those creeps I would have stopped...

And him for being a savior to all his folks!!! OMG!!!

This and Samurai flamenco are two of my favorites of this season, along with Hunter X Hunter and Freezing.

So much character development hehe...

Hilarious that Banri called Linda by the wrong name...

To be honest I like Linda more than Koko, but she's a senior and doesn't seems to get too much scenes on the anime so... I guess she won't even be thast important to the series :C and I wonder who Barbara is, maybe someone from before? I'm thinking that Linda could be someone from Banri's past o:?

Same here.

Btw, taking that dancing circle in the woods into account, didn't they just fall out of the frying pan into the fire? :D

Yay for more Linda. Also wondering who Barbara is?

He probably just got the names mixed up, since they're English.

I like that even though it's an amnesia story, it starts with amnesia. He doesn't know any of the people in the show before so there's not that whole "well can we still be friends?" plotline. Yet.

What a really strange group. It must suck for Tada not being able to remember anything also, I feel bad that Koko's life revolves around Mitsuo's.

I was a little curious when she said in the last episode that she wasn't even going to that university. Now i know why that was.

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.

Yeah a hard experience together is good for creating bonding memories.

Lol at that ending.

LOL Yanao XD LOL Barbara XD Who the heck? :D

Wasn't that sort of stupid of Kaga to stay behind instead of getting help from the outside? Well I can ignore that part for some Kaga x Tada moments. :)

Linda appearing was pretty random..

Edit: They have great OST too that fits the mood of the show.

Oh man, when I saw that they were all dressed in sweatsuit and had those weird necklace, I was so sure it was a sect xD

That trip didn't go so well... Thanks to those weirdos.

We got to learn Tada condition, I thought he was bullshiting during the diner.

Damn must be really scary to be trapped with a bunch of religious assholes like that (I'm an atheist). This anime is fucking fantastic, I needed something like this in my playlist.

Gotta say I didn't really expect the amnesia thing on Banri. I bet Barbara is a girl he liked before the accident¿ - Gaming reviews, articles, anime and figures.

That is scary, but we can thank the trip, right??
Nice, Banri, nice.....really nice. That is how you should handle situations, and I like the way he thinks :D
Mitsuo, Kouko, or Linda. I think one of them or maybe even all of them are somehow involved with Banri's accident.

It's possible that Linda is Banri's girlfriend, but of course he doesn't remember because of the amnesia.

I knew they were going to some pyramid scheme/ fanatic religion when I saw all those uniforms and neckalaces. I was like get the fuck out of there! Good episode. Suck that he had amnesia. I feel like that's going to come into play later. Great episode!

From the beginning I had the feeling something is not right. But they had some really nice time in the forest.
Sucks to have amnesia..

I wonder when will Kouko and Banri get together.

After quite some hiatus, finally caught up.

Kouko is cute!! I knew she's a kind person who's willing to do everything for Mitsuo. Even though she can be sometimes too clingy. Mitsuo is lucky she has someone who has everything and trying to follow him wherever he goes.

Linda!!! Shame about Banri's past. I do wonder if he had encountered Kouga back then, but doesn't remember??

Can't wait for the next episode!!

It was a cult! how could they not tell from the fact they were all dressed the same lol.

I am glad they escaped though in the dead of the night and Linda helped them.

It's sad that Banri has amnesia though :(

I hope he and Koko get together.

fucking scientologists.

i bet "linda" was his gf in his "past life". he probably starts to remember her and their relationship after he falls in love with/starts dating someone else (probably kaga). cue drama!

Really am failing to see the appeal of this show. I'm going to continue watching for the moment, but I quickly am losing 'faith'.

All I see so far is a stalker who was shunned by her target and is largely ignored by everyone else. As such she's becoming attached to the only person who is willing to show her any positive attention. Coupled with a typical 'amnesia' angle that is far too common in anime, though this hasn't been developed yet, so perhaps they will pull an interesting angle out of it. Who knows, it's only episode 3, so perhaps it will turn around.
