Haha well at least with different animation in these eps. Madarame doesn't look like he's starving like in the tv episodes lol
Anyways I found this episode pretty funny esp. the part at the end when Ogiue walks in with her new outfit, I just bursted out laughing xD

I know huh!? D:
we got a madarame centered episode, he seems to have feeling for saki, wonder how that will turn out :o
& yes, Ogiue's new outfit was lol <3
I though the episode will be about her& clothes, not madarame...

I really felt for Madarame in this episode. His previous sedentary nature is being changed by Saki, and he doesn't know how to deal with it. He's doing so many things I wouldn't really expect out of him. It's rather cute though, as Madarame still has the makings of a gentleman (like when he offers for Saki to sit before him on the subway) He deserves a break, though I can't say that I wouldn't like to see a Madarame/Kousaka pairing. fufufufu >_>

Someone should make, "This is a failure!" into a .gif.

Looks like Madarame is developing feelings for Saki, at least to me.

Madarame's feelings might result in some drama later in the show. Good episode. Whatever I felt was missing from the first season seems to be fixed now. Maybe I was just missing some character development or something.

This show seems to be at it's best when Saki and Madarame are the focus, which seems to be quite alot. Sasahara feels like a side character .

This episode was so Densha Otoko, even in the train where Madarame wondered if a drunkard would come, haha.

this episode was really centered around madarame which was awesome as he is one of my favourite characters
and with the new animation he doesn't have those annorexic cheeks xD
which is good ^_^

This episode is a great example of just how dynamic the show is. Everything is changing and not in cliche ways. Great slice of life series.

Mmmm the animation feels different. That aside, it was a really good episode. It's nice to see how the characters have developed. :D

My first geek out was when I recognised the music from Shikigami no Shiro. I already liked it when they showed a danmaku in the OP. Then, later, when, they talked about Katamari! Awesomeness.

I always thought that, really, the first series was more about Saki than Sasahara!

Anyways, I love how Madarame realises he just has to use the same mentality for buying clothes as he does buying doujinshi! An it works. Ogiue, however, not so much!

In fact, when she appears at the end and you can only see a skirt and legs I though for a second that Keiko Sasahara had appeared again, but no, it was Ogiue!

Great episode! I like Madarame's new outfit, and it was the second episode, centered around him, and Saki, and since they're my favourite characters...

Madarame after he left the station alone.. You just felt for the guy if you've ever experienced stuff like that.

Although he did look quite trendy and happy at the end. It was definitely a good episode and I agree when the focus is on Saki and Madarame its quite entertaining yet a bit annoying since you know Madarame has this crush on Saki but of course Saki doesn't reciprocate his feelings.

It's always bothered me when people think otakus don't care what they look like. I care about my clothes, hair, makeup ect just like I care about anime. I really wish saki didn't say those things. Bothers me so much.
But it was an okay episode.
Nice outfit haha I liked it.

Love this episode. Always love episodes centered on Madarame and Saki. I know Madarame has no chance at all but his unrequited affection is so cute. Hehe. Poor boy.

Hmm, it seems Madarame is starting to fall for Saki. I hope they continue fleshing out characters like this in season 2. And LOL @ Ogiue's sense of fashion. I like how she didn't turn out to be a Saki # 2, she's proving to be an interesting addition.

Poor Madarame... It's really painful to watch when he has feelings with someone's girlfriend. Hope he finds a girlfriend soon.
I loled at the preview Xd That helmet is a little too big for that girl imo.

Another funny episode. That part where Madarame was making that funny voice while hitting his throat was freakin hilarious. I was cracking up the whole time.

These OVAs are really funny. This whole episode it felt like Madarame was falling for Saki. I actually like Madarame's square glasses. I think they were better than his current big cirlce glasses. Ogiue's outfit was really weird. Great episode!

Episode as fun as the previous, but this time the prospect given the narrative is directed only towards three of the protagonists, the ubiquitous Saki, Madarame and a bit of space there for Ogi-chin.
Funny story, although there was a small parenthesis a little melancholy when I was almost worth Madarame, which is love? Cute and funny enjoyment of the story with the characters more and more charismatic.
Drawings that improve is somewhat mitigate my judgment earlier.
The icing on the cake, the change of clothing by Ogi-chan! LOL

And the word of the day is... "Akaward" lol
Thats how I feel when it comes to interactions with Saki and Madarame.
This is why Madarame is one of my favorite characters in the series. He has the same otakuism and akwardness I do and I related to him when it comes to that espically with trying to buy new clothes and have them look good. Then when I see I'm sucessful I dance around happily like I won something. My job as a retailer needs me to dress nice but it's hard to get nice clothes for a not outragious price. I'd rather spend it on otaku things XD
No, no pairinga of them ! I do not approve. Being two different types of peopoe, that is why they are akaward.

Madarame changed his style a bit, he seems to like Saki more and more.
Ogiue's new style wasn't that bad.

Well I mean... At least Saki isn't ignoring him like she used to

Sad day for Madarame I guess
Well sooner or later he'll find one.. Maybe?

Ogiue.. why? xD
