The beginning scene was hilarious xD
It was cute the father reaction when Miuna called him grand-father.

I really liked the discussion between Akira and her father, it reminded me of [Huge Clannad : AF spoiler]

I didn't expected Kaname to pull out such a douchey move. I mean, I don't think that his intention were bad or mean, but what he did really putted thing to shit.

I'm glad that Chisaki confessed. Even if she knew it was leading to nothing, she's now relieved. I expect her relation with Kaname to turn to shit because of what he said.

Also, I know that I said it before, but is it me or Chisaki, or more Tsumugu is getting closer to her? When she touched his arm, she had a weird reaction and he interract more with her recently. I wouldn't be surprised if Tsumugu have a crush on her, since how fucked up the love routes are xD
I really like how unpredictable the realtionship are.

Daisy chain of unrequited loves confirmed.

Not only that, but it may go full circle as well (if my suspicions about who Tsumugu's female love interest is correct), just like this episode and episode 1.

Kaname lit the fuse of this chain of unrequited loves, falling on his own sword as a consequence. Despite trying to force things around it seems everyone is still staying their own courses, though. None of the confessions produced a couple from their circle of friends. Manaka, your friends are growing up fast.

Sayu and Miuna are trained well against a pervert.

Loved this episode.
Hikari actually took Chisaki's confession pretty maturely. Instead of running after Manaka, he understood how much energy it took Chisaki to say her confession, and stayed by her (as friends), while realizing that both him and Chisaki are in the same position. He's become a lot mature than the first episode. I think Hikari might be one of my favorite male characters for this series. I feel like Kaname is holding way too much in. He comes off as cool, but in this episode, we can see that he might be at his breaking point. I think finally, in this episode, each character knows what the other characters feel about them now (The people in the sea, not the surface). It'll be interesting to see how everything resolves now.

I also really enjoy Hikari's father. Instead of playing barely a role, or being a wise father that is always right, like shown in a lot of anime, he seems a lot more realistic. His father is intelligent, no doubt, but he's having a lot of trouble and conflicts of his own. As a man who wants to stay with his culture, he also loves his own kids; not to mention, he is also the head priest. Because of this, a lot of the decisions he has to pick are very hard on him.

WTF IS THIS? CRINGEEE. I don't know man, I think that was pretty forced. Poor Kaname, seriously I feel bad for the dude. I like how Hikari was pretty chill later on. SIGH deja vu. Damn, if it wasn't for the ntr and shit, I would've probably liked Tsumugu. I don't even dislike his personality, but this damn Manaka made me really dislike him. SIGH.

Kaname himself said this, that Tsumugu always appear at the worst/best timing. -.-

All that drama in the end! Pretty nice that all the confession has been dealt with finally, but I really wonder what will happen next!

1. The kids assaulting the chef priest was funny

2. So much drama in the classroom… it was alright I guess

3. Tsugumu catching manaka in the net again says alot

Might be the only one i guess that thinks this but i think this convoluted love circle doesn't do the plot any justice. It's gone in so many directions I've already decided I really don't care who ends up with who anymore, but this plot keeps making me want to watch more.

This really is an anime for kids.
Finally I understand how the ratings work here. Good anime for grown up people get lower ratings and anime for little kids get the best ratings.

I've been wondering...are Manaka, Hikari, Kaname and Chisaki the only four children from the sea attending sch? Where are the other kids?

My dislike for Chisaki has intensified - she's not honest with herself and she's too fickle-minded! She's one to talk when she called Kaname horrible since what happened was messier than it was supposed to be cos she kept procrastinating on her confession to Hikari.

Kinda sad that the group of friends is broken after they made their feelings known to each other. Such a waste cos they were all so close and tight-knit.

I don't understand why so many of you hate or find Manaka annoying. I think the way she is acting is normal and reasonable. Not too long ago she was a crybaby who relied on her friends. She is changing for the better, but do you guys really expect her to change into a strong character in such a small amount of time? Give her some time and she too will also change like Hikari.

Also I loved how the 2 cool and calm guys showed emotion this episode. Kaname showing frustration when he found out Tsumugu went to the city with them and then the scene with the school. Tsumugu also showed uneasiness in front of his mom.

I agree, though personally, I am starting to find Manaka kinda annoying now. She should not have ran away during that scene. Her feelings towards Tsumugu is just a crush. The one she truly loves which she doesn't realize yet or starting to realize is Hikari.
Poor Kaname :/ I actually like what he did.
Also, I am glad that Hikari stopped chasing Manaka when he saw that Chisaki fell.
Just when Manaka is thinking of Hikari.......Tsumugu accidentally caught her again =_= I like Tsumugu, though.

Kaname is by far the most likable character in the series, he's saying the things that need to be said but not always at the best times (but that in itself is a perk).

I'd understand Manaka's hesitation to accept Hikari's feelings for a little while, but running into the arms of another guy (Tsumugu) isn't really any different is it?

I really liked Chisaki and Hikari's growth at the end. I feel like Manaka is running away from her problems again, and Kaname pulled something pretty immature.

Loved all this drama though. Can't wait for the next ep!

After viewing and reviewing I still can't completely understand why Kaname did that.
Sure he could be pissed or something else, but throwing that "bomb" at that time wouldn't be the best thing. Still, he is a kid, and with all the stuff that is happening...

Can't they run out of heartbreaking moments like these ? :'(
I knew Kaname was going to play a role like that.. I tried to avoid thinking about it but it still happened.
But everything considered I still love Hikari the best.. whatever he does is what a true man does.
Forget about everything.. I still just want Hikari to find happiness that's all.
Why did Tsumugi just had to do that ? Damn it stop interfering. *facepalm*

Damn, that headbut. Also the kimono is beautiful! I wonder why Tsumugu was avoiding his parents. I love how that bartender shed a tear. Looks liek everyone has confessed but no one knows what to do. everone is ignoring the person who confessed. I didn't expect Hikari to stop for Chisaki. I thought he would just continue to run after Manaka. Manaka's mom looks beautiful. She thought of Hikari right before she was caught again by Tsumugu. I don't think it'll end with ManakXTsumugu. I see HikariXMaaka now. Tsumugu has never shown any intrest in any of he girls. DAMN! That moment when she's in the net. What timing! Just like in the beginning of the series. Then the tear close up on Manaka and tehn the ED plays. I FUCKING LOVE THAT ED.

Also the ED looks like Manaka sinking don and sleeping since a lot of saltflakes were piling up on her. I thinks thats what it is.

Damn !! that tsumugu boy act so calm and high like sh*t.
if I were the author, I'll make the story more more more more gloomy, like suddenly Hikari know tsumugu and Manaka having relationship. I'll turn that Hikari become a vengeance himself. in the end tsumugu get killed by HIKARI

Best part was when Akari talked to her Dad in the coffee place. And damn Tsumugu's godly timing, Manaka was just about to go talk to Hii-kun xD I still want the characters to develop more besides of course Hikari, who is developing well. Manaka just cries all the time, Chiisaki is always mad at herself. Kaname is developing beyond just smiling all the time, and we're getting a bit of Tsumugu's backstory about his parents, so at least we're moving in the right direction now.

The problem with Manaka is that everybody else around her seems to be growing up whilst she is still very childish and doesnt understand anybodys feelings. She is a moron basically.

I'm so annoyed by him YOU'RE A CHILD SO WHY YOU YOUR BRAIN IS LIKE THE BRAIN OF 40 YEARS OLD MAN you're too fake for me Tsumugu
And again Hikari is proving that he is the best character of this anime. His confession was so cute
Man Chisaki is so selfish telling Hikari not to confess to Manaka and not to run after her that's so selfish and rude from you Chisaki
Poor Kaname. He wanted to clarify things before the hibernation because it's more scary than it seemed. Looking like dead when you're asleep and there's a possibility that you won't see the others after hibernation
So telling Kaname that what he's done is terrible is so rude from you Chisaki
The conversation between Akari and her Dad was so touching I love it. So happy that everything between the daughter and the dad is solved.

Lol Tsugumu is practically always in the right time.

Goddamnit, this love polygon is so hard on me. Why Mari Okada, why?!?! Why is your name always making me salty in every anime I watch about romance.

But I do support Tsugumu and Manaka, their relationship felt really heartwarming. While Kaname kind of lonely and has always been there to notice Chisaki's feeling, so I kind of want them together too. As for Hikari, I want Miuna... but that won't happen eh? Mari Okada always ruin all my ships.

How everyone feels is getting revealed to the others, the fear of what awaits to them (and Kaname's help) is leading them to do that before it might be too late, they changed over the span of this first half of the series, and more seems to come very, very soon with the time to sleep being inminent.

Akari and Hikari's dad really got me in this episode, that flashback to when he "cooked" for them when their mother passed away was both heartwarming and really sad, he definitely went through really bad times back then and I can't forget that, and now he's worried for Akari too, but I'm sure he can see how she has grown up.

Fantastic episode, the next one should be incredible.

Everyone is in love with eachother in this anime :/ I love most Kaname so i got sad just for Kaname.. I think Chisaki don't see him really as he is..
I'm really wondering what will exactly happen when they slept? *-*

I can't take the melo drama in this anime. I'm not connected with the feels at all. I hate characters like Manaka so much. Worst archetype ever. Only thing that keeps me from dropping the show is the hibernation thing. I wanna know how that plays out.
