Not the best arc but this is the best MSSS adaptation so far, followed by Neko Shiro.

Ah... good to finally see Hanekawa again with her striped hair :3 With the recent 'Golden Time' anime airing, I couldn't help but keep thinking about Kaga Koko from Hanekawa's voice.

You gotta love the art as well. It's not as great as other scenes from this season, but the phone call scene's backgrounds were still beautiful.

And damn... Kaiki looked pretty cool as hell when his hair was still wet from the shower.

Haha Kaiki fan service, laughed at OP again, good to see Hanekawa and cool hairstyle. The Senjougahara Kaiki secret desire jokes get me every time.

Listening to Kaiki and Senjougahara's conversations will never fail to entertain me.

Seems Hanekawa is involved in this whole thing now. Her hair is cute, and her outfit this episode was too.
It's been a while since I've heard the "I don't know everything. I just know what I know." line from her.

I'm curious as to what all Hanekawa knows. Next episode's talk between her and Kaiki should be pretty interesting.

I didn't read the novel but I was sure Hanekawa would make it since Kaiki seemed very interested in her. They are an interesting pair, she's is very clever and he won't be able to toy with her.

Waiting for the subs to understand what happens btw :p

For a minute I thought Kaiki had switched places with Mikisugi from KLK. His talks with Senjougahara are always great.

Nadeko's still being Nadeko and Hanekawa returned looking better than ever. Love them stripes.

I have a tip who wrote that letter at the beginning of the episode, I wonder if we'll get an answer to that.

And still nothing about the closet. I guess we'll see next week or the last episode.

I didn't expect to see Hanekawa with her tiger hair again. Just for that this episode was amazing. Her tiger hair is still the best thing I've seen in anime this year.

Love it!

Thx Kina.

Welcome back Hanekawa!

"I don't mind it much. Besides, I believe I have a good taste in men." LMAO! Was that a subtle insult Hanekawa-san? XD!!!

I'm guessing that Tom Cruise is in there and he won't come out.

Not only is it awesome that Hanekawa kept her stripes, but it is apparent how much more genuine her character is now that she has been dealing with all of her negative emotions and thoughts. Shaft did a really great job making her character look kind of worn down and just more real than she ever was before. Most of her personality is the same, just refined, and you can tell she isn't blind to all things disagreeable and instead shows more of a calculated and logical thought process based on her preferences and perceptions(choosing not to question Kaiki on his motives with a smirk, the joke about her taste in men) things you wouldn't really hear from her before, it just shows how she's developed after the flood of emotions/memories/reality returned to her all at once.

Pretty slow episode, but that made up for it for me. Sasuga, Shaft.

Seems like everyone, including myself, is itching to find out what was in the closet! I guess we'll just have to wait!

Was surprised to see Hanekawa's hair like that! Wasn't sure if it was her or not. lol

Just noticed how it shifts from yellow to white subs as it changes from 80s to modern art in the OP. Never have we seen the setting like this until Kaiki got here. Looking forward to everyone's reaction of what's in the closet.

One hundred thousand yen plus three million yen. That's three million one hundred thousand yen, clearly more than three million.

And he's good at math. Is there anything Kaiki can't do? besides change Hanekawa's bad taste

Kaiki is still awesome. Hahaha. I really love how he questions Hanekawa now... and hearing Hanekawa's catchphrase again!

And, this episode didn't even touch what is in the closet! Argh.

What i loved about this episode was how even if it wasn't revealed what was in the closet, the episode was great.

Now, that is what a GOOD anime is.

It was awesome seeing Hanekawa again. She looks hawt with her stripes, but there's also a maturity and dare I say sense of self possesion that feels much more genuine than before.

Kaiki service for the ladies, yeah!

And Gaen scares me more, much more than anyone else in this series.

I wonder if we'll get an awesome ending too all this. And not just a "kill ALL teh main characters!" and start a new with the upcoming novels and books. So far from what I've seen of the 11+ light novel covers they are all side characters turned into main.
