THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I'm liking the relationship between Mikage and Hachiken this episode. Everything will be okay :3

That talk about the food in the beginning made me hungry though...
ORA ORA ORA. Life on the farm looks pretty tough too. I find the talk with the girls was amusing. Mikage, it's for a family XD. Poor Hachiken there at the end, overwork? Ouch.

Hachiken's worked himself to the point of total exhaustion. He really takes on too much. I'll never understand people like that.

Hachiken asked Mikage out on a date of sorts, and Mikage finally finds out about Hachiken's feelings...

Mikage finally gets what Hachiken is trying to do. Hachiken fainting, probably from working himself too hard. Hopefully he can still have fun with her.

And it happens. The overwork faint. Poor Hachiken, he worked so hard to make the festival enjoyable and in the end won't be able to see how it goes :(

Well, at least he'll learn to not overwork himself that much. He's tooo much of a Yes man it's abnormal XD And why the hell wake up a 3:30 O_o? XD Gotta lol at his reaction to the endlessly increasing schedule, coughing up blood hahaha.

Loved Nishikawa's otaku sledge and Aki's emotionless empty reaction XDXDXD

Komaba and his "Baseball muscles and farming muscles are different" XD

Damn that Bane'i horse is huge!!!

Using HOT mode Tamako in stockings as the attraction for the cows is genius. She really should stay like that XD

Nice job Hachiken, asking Aki out :D Good job ^^...The girls reaction to her denseness and feeling bad for Hachiken was hilarious XD Her reaction when she found out from the girls that it was a romantic thing was lol. The talk about him being her husband and Yoshino not wanting to be with him was fun ^^
Aki's blushing flustered face in bed was KAWAIIII <3

Hachiken's reaction/vision to Mikage agreeing to go out with him was hilarious.
All that hard work to prepare for the festival has completely exhausted Hachiken.

Oh, Hachiken, just how stupid are you to take all the work being shove on you, when you can delegate some of it?

Nice to see Tamako's slim look.

It really does suck for Hachiken, putting so much effort into making everything great, but to the point where he collapses from exhaustion and doesn't even get to enjoy what the end goal was. At least the relationship with Aki is finally starting to move along though. And the subtle change of using a different part of the ED song at the beginning was perfect.

Hachiken has to learn, how to say 'no', at least sometimes.

Good to see, that he's making some progress with Mikage.

Ah, and crying over small potatoes xD

Hachiken NOOOOO. God that ending was done so well. Cannot get enough of this show, I said it before but the direction is really even better than season one.

At long last, the extremely gradual Hachiken x Mikage development is coming to the surface!

Everything was going so well (he even asked Mikage out and she said yes!), but working too hard had to get to him sooner or later. For once I hope everything turns out okay.

Hachiken :( the worst happens when he's the most excited! At least he's got a date with Mikage, and the girls have told the dense Mikage what Hachiken was trying to get at.

I was tired while watching this episode, so I could understand Hachiken's pain so well.
The reaction of Hachiken was so funny when Aki accepted his request to go out together. XD
Hachiken collapsed in the end, I hope he's ok.

Well, that's what Hachiken gets for working his butt off a lot for the festival, at least take a couple of roles and rest for awhile.

Ah Aki finally lets off her feelings, after Hachiken asked her to go have some fun. Well until the ending cliffhanger scene...

The only show that never fails to make me smile.

Episode was great. Oozono's festival is just around the corner and our yes-man literally yes-ed at everything people asked him for. Without sufficient rest, all these works are being one damn heavy for Hachiken. But well, he keeps on going. This episode have a hint of a romance setup for Hachiken and Mikage. Mikage is so straight, she wasn't aware that Hachiken has a crush on her until her friends told her. Episode ends when Hachiken went for a walk with Vice Prez in the early morning of the festival, being happy and said that the choice to run here is a good decision and later on passed out.

A full version of the ED song and this show is complete.
"Children of Japan. And those who were once children. Listen! This is not a dream. This is not fiction. In reality, your superheroes were always fighting. To teach viewers courage and the meaning of justice! No matter how many enemies there are. No matter how strong evil is. Just remember. Does any another country have so many heroes? Has any another country been protected by multiple superheroes? Stand with me, friends! Remember when you used to watch your superheroes!
Once you may have given up this dream. But today, you can be a hero!"

Seconded.

Onto more details....I knew this would happen! I knew he'd become sick or collapse and that it even might be on the festival day. I'm worried he won't be able to even enjoy fruits of his labour at the festival. Ughghgg I'm so invested in this character - almost as much as he is to being an insane workaholic! But it's interesting because even though at first one might think his 'yes-manism' is a commendable trait it's actually a serious flaw, and this brilliant show does a great job in portraying such matters by showing, not telling.

Anyway, this episode, as usual was hilarious, what with poor baby Hachi having responsibilities piled on him one after the other. And oh, his reaction when Mikage said yes (albeit cluelessly) to was so funny I couldn't stop laughing!! Not to mention Nishikawa's (I think?) amazing drawing skills in the otaku sledge ahahha!

Also, did everyone notice how the ED started a bif differently, to emphasise the ending? Ahh I hope my precious Hachiken is okay...

Just when he's so close to the finish line, he runs out of gas. Dang, hope he's okay to enjoy the festival!!

Mikage!! Why you so dense!? If she doesn't like Hachiken that way, she better tell him and not give him false hope. Hope she realizes her feelings for Hachiken though.

Loving Tamako's new figure.... again!! lol
