Mm, now that's music to my ears. I actually kinda admire Touma's skills. Touma: http://i.imgur.com/L8P2DsD.png :3

I'm glad everyone is working well and having fun at it too. I'm rooting for them.

Toma was cool as expected. I wish Kitahara took initiative. Wonder what was written in the notebook. Seemed like it made Toma care about Kitahara more.

Kitahara, Ogiso and Toma remind me of Tsukune, Moka and the inner Moka from Rosario Vampire though there's no obvious romance yet. Wonder which girl he will pick up if they go amatory.

I am starting to love "さよならのこと" and this episode was as good as the others, maybe even better. I love Kazusa (she became my favourite heroine almost immediately after I started the VN). :)

hmm kind of, when there's romance between them they will probably be really similar

I didn't understand the part with the toothbrushes

Man Setsuna is nice, but they're really not making the choice between the two heroines very hard so far. Touma just has it all going on.

Incredible. I was laughing with Touma throughout the time they were listening to the guitar solo. I know how funny it can be when I imagine a beginner being overwhelmed by a song that s/he's going to play. Very cheeky.

This show really knows how to appeal to musicians (well, it worked for me, I guess) even without getting into the technical details, mainly because it can relate through the personal side of playing music.

Of course Kitahara would leave something behind. Looks like a misunderstanding is about to happen.

Does anyone else feel like there's something missing from these first 4 episodes? I know there's a subtle excitement but it's not enough to make me say "This anime is going somewhere." I can't put my finger on it.

WA2's writing is so refreshing for me, the buildup for this love triangle hasn't gotten me THIS engaged in a while.

I'm pretty sure she did, yeah. That, and the touching of his hair at lunch are pretty big indicators she.'s into him. Also, it just makes her more human.

Yeah I know right, perish the thought that she was actually washing herself or something. How weird would that be?!


Not sure if im sensing sarcasm here.

But do you really think the author would make that scene of her slowly reaching down to her private area and expect us to believe that she was just washing her self. There are many other simple ways of showing a character washing them selves that isnt so questionable.

I think you need to rewatch that scene. You can clearly see her happy and singing. Then she stops. Starts thinking about something, on lowers her han-

Why am i talking about this -_-

I gotta say, WA2 is doing a pretty good job on relationship-building. Normally when there's a love triangle it often either gets watered down to both heroines fawning over the main for no apparent good reason or it becomes blatantly one sided. So far, not only has the pacing been consistent -- we're not seeing any sudden leaps -- but the interactions also feel pretty natural with the subtlety. The script and directing are both superb in this regard, unlike a grand majority of other series out there. It feels like an actual love story.

I can't say whether I look forward to seeing the end of this series though because we know it's not necessarily going to turn out well because of Kitahara's flashbacks from ep. 1.

The adaptation adaptation kinda bumps up and down and up and down again, but at least the lowest mark is still pretty good.

At one point Kazusa told Kitahara to remove all his stuff from her house. This is so people don't find out about them having lived together. Kitahara went off to brush his teeth and left his stuff there, which Setsuna then saw at the very end. Well, we don't know whether Setsuna knows it's Kitahara's toothbrush but I assume that it'll be cleared up next episode. Maybe she'll simply confirm her suspicions by throwing some innocuous question at Kitahara like "Is this yours?"

Of course, what happens after Setsuna finds out about Kitahara and Kazusa's private training sessions is anyone's guess.

Man, I just can't stop being in love with the character here. WA2 did a really, really good job in character development. At some point you like the first girl, but now it builds up so good that even the second girl becomes your favorite.
Between Setsuna and Touma, it's freaking hard just to chose the girl you like. I like their personalities and I like them both. I'm happy with whoever Kitahara is going to chose and be with <3.

Anyway, it was a good episode about Touma, didnt know she still has her cute and feminine side. Now more screen time for Setsuna please xD.

Oh and the toothbrush last scene, urgh I already know how this will turn out, my guess is that Kitahara and Touma will love each other, Setsuna will be the one who has one-side love and Kitahara will not return her feelings. But I still can guess what is it going to turn out when she finds out the toothbrush is of Kitahara and the two of them have been practicing privately xD.

Damn, woman's institutions are scary.

My guess is that the toothbrush will lead to a misunderstanding. Then they clear it but at the same time, it will foreshadow the relationship and development later on.

But with a romance lover like me, its pretty easy to see where is this coming to:

Between Touma and Setsuna, Kitahara will likely chose Touma since she's the cool type who doesn't speak too much. It's the key here since Setsuna is the school idol and being the outgoing type. It means that she will approach Kitahara and show her affection on him. Meanwhile Kitahara finds something interesting in Touma and fall in love with her.

With a passive type like Touma, she avoids people so if Kitahara doesn't chase after her then the story will go no where and it's just a romance between Setsuna and Kitahara.

But the turning point in this ep was that, I'm quite surprised it was Touma who took the initiation first, rather than Kitahara himself. Hmmm.

"Oh Touma! If this Anime didn't have as much drama as I know it will I would have congratulated you about your incoming relationship with Kitahara!~"

But seriously, Touma = favourite character by miles.

And I'm in the same situation as Kitahara. I could learn to play "Sound of destiny'' on my guitar aswell, but in a week!? Poor guy...

This show continues to be great and my favourite of the season.

I don't normally laugh at anime, but it was pretty funny hearing that guitar solo knowing Kitahara's skill level.

Touma also continues to be best girl by FAR. Setsuna are you even trying?

Ogiso didn't know that Kitahara was staying at Touma's house, so her finding his toothbrush could lead to some... misunderstandings.

You guys sure are observant of bath scenes lol. But I think you guys do have a point. They did intend to imply something there.

It is so obvious that Setsuna likes Kitahara. Even Touma took a notice, even though she probably liked him from long before Setsuna even met Kitahara, just a hunch.

Overall, a very good episode. The moments where the anime decides to quit for a whole week are pretty damn good. The last time I found a similar romance anime was NANA.

Touma sure is looking for a super-high-spec guy. Kitahara is very cool now, she still want him cooler.

And that toothbrushes. Busted.

It seems like they were tying to imply that she was doing more than just washing herself, for what reason I am not sure there are other ways to show she likes Kitahara. The scene fades to Touma frantically playing the guitar so its pretty clear what Ogiso was doing.

Touma is a plain badass. I can see why Haruki seems to be very vulnerable around her.

Also, lol @ the focus on the legs.
