Wow, the number of times Koko had to repeat saying 'friend' after friendzoning banri, oh the brutality. D:

I liked Linda with her ponytail, she looked so cute.

I saw several comments saying the bike that ran over banri might be linda so i did a little comparison with their bikes.

Gotta love Koko and her textbook friendzoning. Watching it as a viewer was painful.

Wish Linda-senpai kept her ponytail.

Koko was so annoying in this! "Friend" this and "friend" that... Is Tada going to grow tired of her yet? I thought she was doing it to make Mitsuo jealous, but Idk. Maybe she's using Tada to get over her past feelings.

I really hope he goes back to Linda! I like her so much more!

Friendzoned... anyway I sure wish that Linda has some deep reason for not telling Banri...and I'm sure someone will accidentally see that picture if he always stare at it like that..

Would be nice if he could tell his new BFF lol about Linda, anyway I'm liking the fact that he's at least formally considered a friend now. I really liked this ep want to see more of Linda, her eyes look amazing!

That would be my guess as well. It does seem odd that Linda would say nothing to him even though they have technically met before they met up at college.

That was one violent friend-zoning there! Koko still doesn't see Tada Banri that way.

I'm sure now Linda had something to do with the accident. Otherwise why would she be completely non-communicative about the affair?

This show is building the drama/romance block by block. At the end there'll be delicious tears and shipping wars galore I predict.

Yeah I suspect Linda was responsible for his amnesia and is aware he doesn't remember a thing about it. It slightly reminds me of Ore no Seishun (great anime too).
Not surprised that Koko and Tada Banri are no more than friends, it'll be beyond stupid if they jumped into a relationship 2 days after she was shot down, it isn't realistic.

Kouko continues to be an annoyance this episode. Her personality is just far too self-centered, bi-polar, and ignorant. I was hoping we'd actually see some negative emotion towards her after last episode, but alas.

Seems like we'll continue to get more clues as to Linda's history moving forward, I'd like her to be the past-lover who gave him his distance in order to respect his new self and try to build a natural romance again. She clearly has more respect for Banri has an individual and is respecting his new self's wishes to disassociate with the past.

Poor Banri,he entered Friend-Zone.Koko didn't see him that way.
Koko's dancing skills killed me ..
Banri and Koko's dialogues' multi killer especially silent one xD
The curious one is Linda and Banri's relationship.Unfortunately,everyone ship them but I don't want them to end up together.Anyway Koko x Banri is good to me

Liked how they combined comedy and emotion this episode, we got to see some of Banri's short past and we got the see Kaga san in a strange mood.
My personal thoughts why Linda isn't saying anything is probably because she realises Tada's mindset or better said fear of the past and she doesn't want to disturb that, i do think we will be seeing some emotional moments in future episodes about it.
Cab't wait till hear the explanation from Linda about it.

The chance of him ending with Linda is as good as Romeo and Juliet not hooking up together in "Romeo and Juliet" XD For better or worse, this is one of those shows that has its pairing canonized since the start.

I feel like Linda is the one who got screwed over the most for Banri's amnesia.
I mean, imagine having your boyfriend/girlfriend suddenly losing all of their memories of you and your past together then suddenly, right in front of you, they end up with somebody who's younger, wealthier, and better-looking than you. And to make things worse, that person is an underclassman in you club that you have to meet with everyday and yet you can't fault either of them for what happened since it was all just bad luck. Now all she could do is to watch from the sidelines as her lover talks to her like a stranger as she bottles up all her feelings and past memories together.

If I had to make a guestimate as to what is going to happen...

1) Banri finds out that he had an intimate relationship with Linda in his past.
2) Linda is responsible for his amnesia, so she is trying to brush it under the rug perhaps thinking that Banri doesn't know (which he kinda doesn't but kinda does)
3) Koko finds out about Banri's past relationship with Linda, gets jealous, and realizes that she has more than just "friendly" feelings for Banri
4) Banri and Linda discuss their past relationship and Banri tells her that he is moving on and that it is all in the past
5) Koko confesses her feelings for Banri and the two hook up

That's the direction I think this series is going. I'll have to bookmark this prediction to see how close I am. Just watch, I'll have them all wrong except for the "hooking up" part.

... And Koko being fake and creating unnecessary obstacles between herself and Banri is annoying. Friendzoning, FRIENDZONING??? Doing this is cheap, cruel and she will most likely regret it later on.

Come on woman you got confessed to and there are only 3 options: go out and be happy, dump him and be stupid or tell him you need time to think about it (which is understandable).

I wouldn't be surprised if this actually happens but I actually want it to happen, and it seems very possible. I don't know how to say it but its an obvious typical very possible outcome in this type of story with romance.

Guy has amnesia. Has a crush on a girl. But his past real self loves another girl.
So, what I would love that happens is.

One day Tada and Koko become a couple but Koko still isn't giving in for her love on Matsukaze (forgot his name). And maybe it works out, maybe it doesn't. --But then the real Tada Banri is back and he pushes Koko away because he loves Linda.

I'd fucking love that! Anyone else?
And he ends up with Linda.

Not me, I mean right now they are pushing Koko and Banri together strongly, and drama with koko, linda, and banri, plus other characters will happen, but I can't see them doing what you want without it feeling forced at this point.

Could be, maybe that why she "can't" go to the hospital.

Anyway, this is my favorite anime this season, wasn't too sure about it after the first episode, but each week it gets better and better.

I wonder if Tada and Linda are childhood friends?
I feel she is the cause of his amnesia.

The hospital scene was so touching. I wonder why he forgot about Linda being the one signalling?

I wish there were more scenes with Yana, though. Feel like he's being left out.

Interesting episode, it can branch off in quite a few directions at this point so it will be interesting to see what route will be chosen. I'm looking forward to next friday already.

What intrigues Tada memory. And Koko Mitsuo trolling.

I got the impression that Kouko was calling Banri a "friend" as much for her own reassurance as anything else. Like she was trying really hard to remind him and herself that they're friends. But most of all I think she really honestly doesn't know what her feelings are at the moment. She was so laser focused on Mitsuo that it'd take some time before she even fully realizes that she CAN love anyone else.

I think so too since he was hit with a bike and fell off the bridge and I think I saw she had a bike which drives to the conclusion it's the same bike that hitted him

This of course, is just a theory. I have never read the manga. But, what if you are right and she did it because he was going to break up with her? Or Maybe it wasn't her and it was a guy that liked her and wanted to off him. I'm interested to know.

Best girl is Linda. Koko is funny but rather annoying. That being said, she and Banri seems to understand each other perfectly.

Exatly, you sure understand women. Not surprising though considering your age XD
She's gonna get all jealous and stuff when Banri and Linda get closer again.
