Actually what you're saying makes sense. Banri suddenly got p[opular in College and got a babe for a girlfriend and suddenly Linda can't leave him alone anymore.
That's the reason i don't want anyone other than Koko at the end

Linda is too shallow if you ask me. She would go well with Mitsuo on that regard, I mean both of them could'nt realize what was good about their childhood friends u-u[/quote said:

you got it wrong, Linda only let him go because tada didn't want to meet any old friends.. That takes real love to let go of someone like that..meanwhile there's koko who took ages to trust tada at exploring his past. Im going for koko though cos she's getting character development.


Yeah it takes real love to ignore someone you know. Childish notion. The problem with Linda is she was a coward and did not acknowledge Banri when she met him again in college. She could have mentioned she was a classmate and nothing more but she decided to pretend to not know him.
She pretended because of banri himself. In this episode, she even said that she hated how banri didn't want the past.. Why do you think that even linda's brother or none of his classmates talked to him? it wasnt just linda.

Great episode! Better than the ones we've had in weeks.

Koko and Nana were hilarious. EXORCIST and Koko makes the best face ever. I screen-shotted it haha. I hope she does that at Nana's concert

The dodgeball game was awesome enough said
I like all the memories the classmates have of Banri. He used up all his erasers to ask a girl for one? Seriously??? And we knew he was a crybaby but not to THAT extent.

I liked Linda in this one, it's the most honest she's been all show. I like the closure that Banri gets about himself.

Though that end scene... Is the ghost giving up? Or is it going to be inside him now and part of him? I'm not sure why the mirror cracked... Maybe it represents how Banri is letting go of his reservations and becoming free...

Preview is interesting. They're getting married? Chinami got new hair? xD Mitsuo looks shocked...? Hmm. Looking forward to it.

I enjoyed this episode quite a bit. Kouko had a pretty funny moment at the start but this episode served a far stronger purpose of tying up those loose ends with Banri's past and really coming to terms with it. I guess I was just really curious about the past Banri so the reunion and reminiscing scenes were great imo. Banri's memories starting to come back, a broken mirror and how could I forget, Mitsuo who was left in the dark, I wonder what will ultimately come out of this.

Was I the only one that wondered what the problem was with the bald guy, for example at the 17:17 mark. He seems to be the only one who isn't over enthusiastic (that were clearly visible).

Oh man, the exorcist scenes were hilarious as fuck.

Thought Banri was gonna get knocked over or pushed over by ghost Banri when on the bridge and lose his memories again. Phew, good thing it didn't.

Lol'd @ Kouko choking Nana and the exorcist,haha.

Lol,Banri was pretty desperate before with the eraser move to pick up girls.

Seriously got nervous there when he got on the bridge.

Ohh the mirror cracked,not a good sign.

Good episode,wish I had gotten to see this on Valentine's Day and spent it with Kouko/Linda.

WTF episode... is this really leading somewhere or was Banri's travel to his school reunion only one stop along the way without and twist?

Exorcist thing... *facepalm*

Linda - now I really have no idea what she really wants. Is she ok with how things are now? Seven more episodes and not a sign of conflict. Ghost Banri should merge with him already... Banri cought a grasp of his old memories but let them slip away again. Running in circles again.

I read that reddit post and I don't this is gonna end this way. I actually thought the same during first few episodes but judging from recent turn of events and from overal change of mood after winter break (to worse) this doesn't seem likely. We'll get happy-end Banri x Koko with some little drama along the way and with Banri's struggle over his regained memories but with many situational jokes also, that's for sure. Just don't have your hopes high for any other endings else you would be disappointed.

Not gonna lie--I'd understand if Banri doesn't want to merge with his past self even after this trip back home. That ghost is a pathetic little whiny loser he can live without. If that's how the ghost really feels, then Banri is just wasting his time.

I often read comments in the comments section below uploads on streaming websites that often involve ghost Banri being the target of people's ire.

To be honest, the current Banri annoys me more.
To me the current Banri is a faux Banri, an invader.
The ghost Banri is the victim of an accident who is left to contemplate what could have been.

I pose a question to people who dislike the OG Banri.
How would you like it if something that was rightfully yours was taken away from you?
Your hopes, your dreams, your aspirations.
The memories you made, the feelings you had towards another person.
Your entire life has been taken away from you in one fell swoop and you are forced to become a spectator to somebody who has taken from you.

It's really interesting, I should probably start a thread on this topic to get some discourse happening on this topic.

This was an odd episode and the animation style seemed a little off ...


Agreed. Less expressions than the expected when meeting ex-classmates.

Futhermore, the last episode animation was too bad.

To be honest I laughed at this.. Ghost Banri is waste of space.. Ghost Banri is also a butthurt asshole who tries to screw with Current Banri even though Current Banri had nothing to do with shit. Ghost Banru/Old Banri was practically a loser who cried because his damn name wasnt on a shirt and who cares about his one sided unrequited love for a lame chick with a mindless fan base ? Trying to screw with someone who had no hand in this is one if the biggest bitch moves I've seen

You actually think Current Banri is going to give up his good life to Ghost Banri and have him fuck up everything he has? If I was Current Banri I wouldn't do crap to be honest..It sucks what happened to the old Banri but Current Banri has his own life.. Might as well deal with it.. It's life and if you don't like it well then tough shit

Very nice and touching scene with Linda and Banri with his eyes closed and the reunion.

And it looks like Banri's memories are really returning this time. Oh man, this is going to be a rollercoaster ride :3

was honest a bit bored for a couple of episodes, but this definitely reminded me how much I love it. with the heidi reference aka my childhood to the exorcist. and let's not forget the nana scenes , she is amazing! this was great. the comedy scenes in this show tie it all together. hmm but not really into the old banri so he needs to disappear . it's obvious banri and koko are endgame but excited for all of the drama to unfold

Whoah dude, so much vitrol in your post towards Ghost Banri.
Chill dude and have some persepective.

Anyway.
I pose this question to YOU.
Something is taken from you without your consent and given to somebody else.
Something that is of equal value as a life(not that the value of life can actually be measured).
Do you say 'tough shit' and accept it or would you contest the current situation.
Obviously you would want back what was taken from you.

what you said doesn't make sense at all, if you want someone to blame, blame the one who hit him.. Although I want to say it's life, not all according to plan, and I think he turned into a better Banri, who is independent and really live his life to the fullest, not cling himself with someone anymore..

It seems in this forum a lot still hate Kouko, not that I care one bit, bacause well, fanboys will always be fanboys but don't delude yourself and overlook the development she had, that's all..
I cannot bring myself to rate anime that I have completed below 5. Well, it just because I have use up my precious time to watch it. so, the worse you will get from me is 5 (changes may apply)

The first 40 seconds were so cringe inducing. Felt like a scene from Watamote. 10/10
Glad there's as much comedy as there is drama in the past few and current episodes.

Oh my fucking god, that must be so humiliating to be found in such a stupid position like that. ''Exorcist!!!'' xD

That scene with the ''yakuza'' was hilarious too :P

So Banri finally met his childhood classmate. It have gone better than he expected it.

I'm not sure if I understood the symbolism behind the broken mirror. Those that mean that his ex-memories will break his relationship with Koko? I hope I'm wrong :S

About the next episode title, I think we all know what it mean ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Onto the bridge. Past Banri tries to fall... and the cracked mirror... and, of course, that last line... what does it all mean?
