Touya can't make up his mind it seems, dragging 3 girls around him.

Mana is really annoying me. She keeps making all these assumptions as to who Touya's 'Yuki' girlfriend is, but no matter how many times the idol is pointed out to her, she doesn't believe it. Maybe it's because of her feelings for him and she doesn't want to have to compete with an idol. I don't know. I just don't get it.

And Misaki. She's an idiot. She has no clue as to what she's doing. I feel bad for her when she keeps getting bullied about the play and then she does something that makes me think so much less of her. And Touya is contradicting himself. He just got done saying that Akira loves her in a different way than him and Yuki and not even 5 minutes later, he confesses to her. What?

I just hope that after this play, there won't be much of Misaki around anymore.

What the hell is going on!? That confession scene was very sudden. Okay, it was understandable that Misaki loved him, but since when did Touya?

Now Mana seems to have a crush on Touya is well..

So... that part at the end. It shows that Touya was handing out papers, probably to advertise the play. Was that happening all along? Was the guy with the black top hat (who was seen when they were carrying Misaki) with her all along? Was she imagining Touya's confession?

Hardly, it was him.

Anyway what the hell is wrong with Touya's Indescision for a girl? Why can't he just brake up with Yuki before their bond start bleeding? (To being with, their relationship at the moment is just too shallow).

Now I'm mad. >:(

Fujii, wtf! No, you love Yuki! Now you really don't deserve her.

I think that Misaki's intentions were true all along about using him. I hope they drop her from the show or she gets hit by a bus.

Man, he is so indecisive. Never can understand why all these girls like him and then he just confesses to Misaki and argh...He doesn't deserve to be anyone in this show.

I laughed. I don't know why, but I enjoy watching as this guy becomes more and more of an idiot each episode.

And I'm not sure why everyone dislikes Misaki. I think she's a fine character. Though Haruka is my personal favorite. Also, Fuji and Yuki need to just break up. Yuki's too nice for him, and he obviously doesn't love her that much.

Indecisive bastard, got to hate him. <3

What's with that sudden confession? Touya is dragging me to the land of confusion with him! And Tamaru is as always...such a spineless jerk.

Misaka should've slapped that guy. Do they not have sexual harassment laws in Japan? Touya is really annoying. I wouldn't be surprised if a girl went crazy and stabbed him. My guess would be the stalker girl on the bike.

"Everyones Touya in White Album"

Well at least Akira confessed to Misaki, and hopefully she accepts his love. That would leave Yuki, Rina, and Azusa Nakano look alike. I feel like Touya is going to end up alone in the end.

After watching the anime so far, I don't really like Touya.

Yuki doesn't need him.

I guess I'd feel better if I knew for sure that this is how the VN went or they are mixing the routes together. If it's the former than I wouldn't mind but I hope they're not making a bad adaptation.

What the hell Touya. Now I'm just hoping for a School Days ending. Everyone kills him and they live happily ever after.
What is he saying "I love you Misaki"? WHAT THE HELL.

Man this anime is getting pretty annoying. I used to respect Touya for his loyalty until last episode, and this just makes things worse. He can't just keep Yuki calling and worrying about him while he's falling in love with another girl. What a jerk.

This anime is starting to remind me of School Days.

Touya's confession to Misaki was very sudden. It was obvious that Misaki loved Touya, but since when did Touya fall in ove with Misaki? During the time he spent time with her? Also Mana looks like she was going to steal a kis from Touya while he was asleep.

Touya, what are ou doing!? Break up with Yuki if you want a new girl! I don't know how this is goijng to end. The onl way I think this is going to end is him ending up all alone.

Looks like Haruka is up next.

I... literally have no fucking clue what's going on anymore. Stuff just happens. One episode he's with this girl and the next he's with another. It's based on vn so it feels like it kind of jumps from route to route. Vn's have lots of monologue that provide insight in the thoughts and decisions of the protagonist, none of that here.

I am confused with this episode. Touya is with Misaki, then he leaves to call an ambulance. Seconds later Akira is there. Was he following them? it also shows Touya not calling an ambulance, but rather handing out flyers for the mystery club. Also as the ambulance is taking Misaki away, Touya is not even with her. In fact he does not even seem to know she is hurt. He might even seem cheerful. So this leaves only 2 conclusions for me. 1, Misaki was with Akira and she thought he was Touya since she had been pulling all nighters, or she was just straight up hallucinating. 2, she was by herself the whole time when she was up there (also a hallucination) and Akira saw her, followed her, then found her injured. Either way it seems unlikely that Touya would go hand out flyers happily and not be with her as she is going away in the ambulance. The only possibility is that he was not with her during the play and did not know about her injury.

This is the episode where I'm starting to understand the series now, which is kind of ironic considering all these comments from people saying that they are so confused by it.

To put it simply, the characters in this series don't often stand up and openly declare what they're thinking and feeling, and even when they do, you have to take what they say with a grain of salt, because they might be lying or they might not entirely mean what they say. The audience has to infer their thoughts, feelings, and motivations by viewing their actions.

Touya is really fickle with who he has feelings for, and he's not too smart either, allowing those feelings to guide him around like a leaf in a wind storm. Plus, he is at the age where he is old enough to seriously screw up his life without anyone being able to stop him, but still young enough to lack the experience necessary to know how to avoid doing so. Many people in their early twenties are still going to be doing impulsive things that are lacking in common sense, and honestly, Touya is kind of stupid in general, so that's a double disadvantage.

He is spending all this time with Misaki to help her with her play, when he could be doing *anything else* (like trying to find a way to spend time with his supposed girlfriend, Yuki). The other characters see this as "the first step to cheating", and that's understandable, because the more time you spend with someone, the closer you will become with them. With Yuki occupied with her career all the time, Touya's feelings are slowly turning toward Misaki.

On Misaki's side of things, it's obvious she has had a crush on Touya for a long time, and only just now, in this moment of weakness, did she allow herself to blurt out her confession. It was only afterwords that she came to her senses, realizing that Touya was weak and confused too, and that her confession might very well give him the motivation he needed to cheat on Yuki (and it almost did). That's why she covered up her crush by pretending to be and "evil woman " who was just using Touya. Touya *did* realize this though, seeing that the lie was made for his own benefit. In his lonely state, his fickle heart got caught up in the moment, and he blurted out his "I love you" confession, to which Misaki promptly pushed him away (after one little indulgence of a kiss).

This series is shaping up more and more to be as much about what is *not* said, as about what *is* said, and the characters are quite believable and flawed people, just like in real life. They shift back and forth between loyalties, and they have shades of morally grey areas about them. The people who are confused about this probably have not seen enough of the more adult anime/movies, and probably aren't yet old enough to see the world beyond black or white absolutes.

I like Misaki. Touya should start corralling all the girls and dating them all. They will be fine with it.

Akira is a chump.
