Some obscure trivia about the OP+ED:
It turns out that the people who produced the OP+ED of Sakura Trick were the
same people who produced the OP+ED of Yuru Yuri. This tidbit was tweeted
16 hours ago:
TVアニメ「桜Trick」公式 @sakuratrick_pr 16h
桜Trick(へぇ〜) RT @anime_yuruyuri: 【豆知識】「ゆるゆり」と
The phrase they use here, 豆知識 (mame chishiki) means "trivia", but literally it
means "a bean of knowledge" or "a grain of truth". At 19:00 in Episode 2 of
Azumanga Daioh (2002), the slow-witted but enigmatic girl nicknamed Osaka used
this same phrase in this dialog. In her thick Kansai (i.e. Osaka or Kobe) accent,
Osaka pronounces 豆知識 as mah-may-CHEE-shky.
Osaka: I bring you grains of truth! Get this, Yomi!
Osaka: Rice is the most popular grain in the world.
Osaka: You got it all wrong.
Osaka: No, no, see. What you were supposed to say was "that ain't no grains of
truth, that's the truth about grain."
Yomi: Oh, sorry.
Here is the script of that episode: https://animetranscripts.wikispaces.com/Azumanga+Daioh%3EEpisode+02
By the way, Azumanga Daioh was the first anime series that combined the
- Four-panel (yonkoma)
- Cute Girls Doing Cute Things
- Yuri (although as a secondary element)
Apart from those genres, it also includes: Slice-of-life and School.
Somebody went through all 26 episodes of the series and edited together every
scene depicting the relationship between Kaorin and Sakaki:
The first anime series which combined CGDCT and Secondary-element Yuri was
Kokoro Toshokan (2001) which depicted a very creepy sister-sister relationship.
In addition to that, Kokoro Toshokan was the very first CGDCT anime series.

Hi Htsuji. Thank you for giving us that chart showing the correspondence between
the anime episodes and the manga chapters. So far, it seems that the adaptation
is a very straightforward retelling of the manga. They just moved that one short
part where Yuu-chan kissed Haruka's knee to wake her up.
I have made similar charts for some other anime series, and it is worth the effort.
But I don't have the access to this manga except for the first few chapters. Some
general questions I have are:
1. Is there any significant content in the manga that they are omitting from the
anime? For example, are they chopping out any Ecchi content? Did they edit out
any boring stuff?
2. Are they adding any original ideas? Of so, is it helping or hurting?
My third question would be about how the chapter order is related to the episode
order, but you already told us that.
In my limited experience (I guess I've done it only three times), anime adaptations
of mangas often make major rearrangements and add a lot of additional content.
So let's see what happens as the series progresses. So far, it seems to me like an
excellent and faithful adaptation. I just can't see anything to complain about.
Episode 5 will be aired at 1:58 am Tokyo time according to the tweet they sent out
nine hours ago. So we still have 4 hours and 35 minutes to go!

Hi, oknagan. As you said, animation scriptwriters often rearrange the order when they choose chapters from the manga. I guess Sakura Trick is a rare exception. They even don't omit the event each panel of the four-panned manga has. There are some parts inserted to emphasize funny event. For instance:
Mitsuki's coffee and ketchup (Eps. 3 part A) is anime only. In the manga, she uses it only for an egg toast.
The slow motion closeup of Haruka's boobs when she shows the cheer leader uniform is an insertion, too. In the manga, she changes the clothes immediately.
At the last part of test of courage episode (Eps. 4, part B), Yuu cried out. The manga ends just when they wonder whoever called Yuu.
But, overall, the manga is like a draft of the script with pictures for the anime.
Eps. 5, "Shizuku-chan Today" is a fan service only on the anime.

The alchemy begun previously, began to take the upper hand in the plot and manages to give a narrative less stale; made only with kisses and more kisses.
Cute story when he can to whirl all the characters.
A great idea to add to the six protagonists also the sister of Yuu and if it is as I expect, they will come other characters.
I'm curious to find out! * _ *
Drawings and animations good, very nice directorial choice, with those cute graphics calls.

Haruka: "Why were you kissing me all over?"
Yuu: "B-Because I couldn´t reach your mouth."
Haruka: "I can´t feel my legs..."
Yuu: "Want me off?"
Haruka: "No, you just stopped my heart." **followed by the most melting smootch**
Yuu: "I might feel less scared if you kissed me."
Rate: <3<3<3<3<3 episode for smooth moves. They are so darn sweet together ^^ That classroom kiss was premium though... The passion literally ran down the throat.

Em.. It's not the first time older sister Mitsuki gets a bit of teasing ship with Haruka, this time imagining Haruka clinging to her hand.. I don't know, how I feel about possible sister sandwich or something.. As it is now it seems more like a potential for triangle rather than sandwich, so I'm a bit concerned..
Wait, why Yuu is sitting on Kotone..? It felt a bit out of her character.. Kotone could certainly tease everyone, but Yuu?..
Well.. Older sister getting more and more fantasies about Haruka.. Maybe three way is possible after all..
And damn.. Haruka even getting older sister closer to her in hug.. Damn.. Maybe there is potential after all.. But on the other hand, maybe Mitsuki will just be left with nothing in the end, poor girl..
In the end, really nervous about what happens between Haruka and Sonoda sisters, I guess..
