63 motherfucking messages in a few hours? That chick is motherfucking crazy.
Seriously is pure insanity to let go of a nice down to earth girl like Linda that can be amazingly fun and pleasurable to be with, for that insane woman.
Does the author seriously think we would just be happy watching him going along with Kouko? Pure madness.

I came to like Kouko a lot more after the recent events. She finally talked more openly about her feelings.

But there's still along way to go. Their relationship so far felt superficial and Kouko's affection too artificial and exaggerated, but I guess that's just how she is.

Still rooting for Linda x Banri. But for me the journey is its own reward. So as long as the development along the way is entertaining I won't mind Kouko x Banri, either.

Watching Kouko down like that was heavy for me, I almost cried. Seriously at this point I don't know who should I go with, on one hand, I want ghost Banri to be Linda, on other hand, I want amnesic Banri to be with Kouko.

Damn that episode was great.

Loved the ending preview was absolutely hilarious and you have to feel bad for Kouko she seems to becoming more and more unhinged. Wouldn't be surprised if she started manipulating Banri.

Extra plus that preview was hilarious and super in character.

Edit:Is it just me or when Linda had torn up that photo, the first thought i had was she should've recycled?

Ohh. Caught red-handed. Not.

If that had been another woman, she'd have likely thought he was making up excuses for being caught cheating, and concluded his amnesia angle was all a lie, a ruse, an excuse for cheating on her.

But no, it was not just another woman, it was Kouko. (She tracked him down, too!) She needs him. Thus, it won't quickly end in a breakup... but it could end in something worse, however. Fortunately, no dark turns here, even in the dark of Banri's apartment.

Linda looked like she would have hesitated for a moment before tearing the picture. The strained look on her face meant it pained her to accept Banri's request... and likely doubted her own words. So no, the threat of a love triangle is far from over.

The length remaining for this anime does not bode well for Banri and Kouko's relationship, however. Kouko does have the "main main girl" advantage to be fair.

Seriously, Golden Time preview with Banri and Koko yelling random shit are so fucking hilarious, I almost chocked xD

Seriously, ghost Banri is such a selfish jerk.

It obvious something big would happen at the party, we could even see it in the last preview. Though, I know that Koko did a lot of place, but how did she got herself in that place :P

I liked that talk in the appart, it was frank and honest, Banri let himself open as a book, even if it's not what Koko really wanted.

Weirdly, Banri seem to have made peace with his past, but Linda didn't seem to. She looked really bitter and sad when she teared up that photo with her screaming ''It's completely the opposite'' as a flashback.

I'm all for Banri x Kouko, but this episode showed again how awful Banri is. He definitely isn't a dream (boy-)friend. Yet again he runs away from his problems with Linda. "Cutting all ties with his past" and "acting like there never was the past in our relationship".. saying something like that to Linda is so awful, as if their relationship in the past is of no meaning..

Dat slap 10/10 would rewatch again just for that slap! Somewhere I was just thinking it and soon Koko will be there and exactly at that moment <3 Just perfect! I do feel sorry for Linda as well she's obviously lying against him and herself... and it also seems that he has some inner problems with himself about her...

Koko sure is overly attached... but I do wonder what both of them will do next!

Well this episode was emotionally disturbing to say the least. I just wish Banri could stop acting like an emo boy and start being the man Koko-sama deserves ;_;

I won't lie though that picture taking scene at the party was hawt.

Banri acted like an idiot for sure... but bitchslap AND drink in the face? Noone deserves such a humiliation in front of a big crowd.

Of course Koko had to go and ruin the mood between Linda and Banri. Seriously I don't understand people who want Banri to be with Koko, Koko's being really selfish not wanting him to remember his past. It's not fair. Our past also shapes who we are. And Banri isn't himself without his memories. The end just pissed me off, I mean if this anime ends and Linda and Banri are not together it'll just be stupid.

+1! "Koko really wants to change", "she's trying her best to be a good gf" etc... yeah right, nice running gag -> "don't get a job!", sends 63 messages, tracks you down, gets violent, "forget the past!". No way such an obsessive person will earn my sympathy, even for her fragile side (and no, that's not her real character; her real character is already present for everyone).

I'm still hoping for Banri x Linda, but I'll probably be very disappointed...

Same here. I cannot stand Koko, she's so desperate. First she wants to know more about Banri's past and then she doesn't. Wtf! Make up your mind stupid b#tch.

After this episode, Banri deserves neither truthfully, he's trying hard to play it both ways, Linda is too reserved, and Koko is too outgoing about things.

Romance genre dictates childhood friends always lose, so I'm going to assume it's Koko in the maybe by then he'll stop with this fake relationship with her and get real about it...and soon....

Holy shit, this was a stressful episode.

It seems like every episode is a stressful episode, which I guess is because of the fast pacing that this show has.

Banri really needs to make up his fucking mind as hes basically all confused about his emotions. Ghost Banri needs to step in and take control of the situation. Linda needs to tell her true feelings as she is basically hiding from the fact she does like him.

plot hole on kouko finding them at the party there... hell even at the right moment..

with that aside.. I'm actually impressed that they had banri confessed everything to both girls. Usually this is where the plot falls short (aka having pathetic male unable to decide between the two)

what we have now is a twist where Linda will be the bad guy (girl in this case) for not being true to her feelings. Now she's gonna keep getting hurt more and more as time goes on.

Banri is doing all the right things, but his past self won't leave him the fuck alone.

The finale would be neither linda and banri can hold back their feelings any longer and get together in the end. Kouko would then be the victim.

Either that or Banri is finally able to fight back and rid of his sorry ass past self and stay with kouko while Linda turned emo and kill herself, which nobody would give 2 fucks at this point if she keeps behaving the way she is now.

Let's hope I'm wrong though because all that shit would be too predictable and boring..

Yeah, Kouko arrived at the party and at that exact moment......that is....that is so convenient =_=
Anyway, I think Banri deserved that Kouko slap and Kouko drinks to the face, baby!!
I am glad that Banri finally said the truth to both of them, but he could have said it all because it's the right moment to go all out!!
I wish he said to Kouko: Even if I remember my past, I will always love, don't worry etc etc.....
I didn't like how he told Linda to forget their past =_= That's stupid, Banri!!
Banri should remember his fucking past and settle things with Linda and be a right boyfriend to Kouko. Get your shit together, man =_=
My curiosity made me read a spoiler a while ago, and yeah, I can see now that Mitsuo is showing signs that he is starting to like Linda.
Well, fanservice next episode??

Looks like yana is really into it when it comes to money haha !!
Linda is really beautiful even in costumes !!! Natural beauty !!!
Oh man .. That is just so sexy !! LindaXBanri FTW !!!
Behold Koko the undeniable truth !! .. This is what you get for your stalking matters !! .. but seriously , get a doctor .. that must be a disorder or trauma .
That slap make me hate her again the heck .. Its your fault for misunderstanding girl .
Inbox messages over 50 !! .. atleast its not over 100+ or .. she really need to go to a hospital.
See ? she really don't trust him even after his boyfriend left a good message to hang out .
Oh.. I get it now .. She's trying to be a "good" girlfriend huh ? .. then STOP doing things like this over and over again !! .. but Honesty is a good thing , I must admit .
Honest confessions !! with drama ..
well .. you can't deny your feelings forever . If you feel that way , then make a choice . a choice that will put you into a greater happiness than before .
This is really hard especially to banri , how hard is to handle such a girl with all body , soul and life devoted to that relationship . but koko .. its making me sympathize her because .. she's also working so hard to be a good girlfriend (according to her.) and but .. I already my decision . I stick to LindaxBanri !! after all .. They are really compatible to each other !!
Looks like It's been decided (obviously) they're meant to be. (the new banri that is)
Nice response of the past banri . Love is not something you just forget all about .
This is shocking . WTF FORGET THE PAST ? this is unforgivable ... just junior and senior now ? what !!? .. remember this , you can't move forward if you past is in disarray . because past is the time where memories the important existence and all about . you making it worst bro .
Linda ... linda ... no ... you can't do this ... you're really hurting yourself by sacrificing that much . It's just the opposite right ? its a prove that .. you have feelings for banri too . but ... this .. settings ... is not ... for .. "that" romance . even I say to myself to hate it many times , It won't work . Its not my work .. Its not my life .. and It's not me who choose what's gonna be and how its gonna be .. but .. damn .. it .. this feelings .. are painful .
Now , I will gonna see many lovey-dovey of koko and banri . I better prepared . I must hold it back and control it as far as I could . kokoxbanri in the next episodes .
Pretty great episode .. I guess .. and I still don't give up hope for LindaxBanri !! even if its not now .. I will wait when the right time comes !! and .. I'll will enjoy for sure !!!

I agree with the anime's love triangle mostly has mostly the similarities of White album 2's love triangle but the difference is .. White album ends with the "second girl"(touma) love conclusion.. and pretty much this will end with the "first girl"(koko) love conclusion mainly because .. of this damn "amnesia" that he got and the memory loss he is suffering because of it .(and so.. the memory loss is the hindrance or wall to the continuation of the relationship of linda and banri . If it didn't happen we may have the same ending of white album 2) also , of the several happenings that strengthen their relationship . I was hoping for its end to be the same as white album but .. guess not . (still hope though.)

Kouko... I don't even.
She contradicts herself, is a hypocrite, is too clingy, and too narrow-minded... I loved how she said to stop recalling memories when he stated he only recalls his past feelings. Also, make new memories because we don't have one? Oh please, you saw him every. single. day. Come on Banri, you deserve someone better than this :/
It's depressing to see a guy like him getting manipulated by her. After all, Banri tried his best to cut ties with Linda despite not wanting to.

I thought she was going to break up with Banri for while, but they solved this so efficiently oddly enough. Did anyone notice that the boss guy was fondling Banri's ass after telling him "Work" btw? rofl

And that Tada Banri and Linda conversion and Linda ripping off the photo...

And from the ending... too bad Tada told to Linda to pretend forget everything in the past... then Tada falls his picture of couple both of them, Linda saw it so she tears it! :((( NOOOOO... Oh well I guess Tada and Lina are normally friends, so Tada officially dated to Kaga as a girlfriend.. well goodluck for that!

How the fuck did Koko know Banri was at some kinky 45-year old ladys birthday party, walk in at the exact moment he was with Linda posing, and actually recognize Banri in the maid outfit?!

HOLY SHIT are you retarded? you dont give your jealous girlfriend the keys to your apartment minutes after she caught you cheating

jesus christ Banri is a douche bag. that scene down by the river, Banri told Linda to pretend they dont know each other anymore; he used the words as before, right after the amnesia incident.

Intense episode!

Yes, Banri deserved that wine thrown and bitch slap. I lol'd when the crowd cheered on either way like it was part of an act.

Didn't know Linda can be pretty daring if i may ask.

I'm surprised Kouko still managed to hold on and didn't leave him. This is much worse she experienced compared to Yana.

Don't know why people hating on Kouko. I'm actually rooting for Kouko. Sorry Past Banri, but you definitely should move on. Linda clearly doesn't have feelings for you. Even if she said everything is the opposite, she should have made the effort on getting to Banri due to his amnesia. Even Linda destroyed the old pic of them. Still it's harsh they would forget each other's past. Why not just stay friends instead of erasing everything? Ohh i forgot, that damn past Banri keeps bugging him.

Team Kouko let's go!!!

Still Yana made lots of money!!! Damn posing and entertaining at people get's you money these days :P

Kouko, Banri!!
Kouko, Banri!!
Kouko, Banri!!
