the scenes from the beginning Kouko were pretty funny, but I only seemed fillers
some funny scenes at the meeting also, how to give hands with a guy, the ball in the face, and Banri think it was father kkkk
but in the end an important revelation, the memories of Banri may be returning ..
this gave cheer to wait for next week ..
__________
as cenas da Kouko no início foram bem engraçadas, mas para eu pareceram somente fillers
algumas cenas engraçadas na reunião também, como dar as maos com um cara, a bola na cara, e Banri pensar que era pai kkkk
mas no final uma importante revelação, as memorias de Banri podem estar voltando ..
isso deu animo para esperar a proxima semana ..

That exorcist act of Koko was funny.

That dodge-ball part was good too.

No wonder why Linda didn't want to be with Banri,his past self was such a loser.


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
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.

Ooooh how I love this episode!

Koko going Banri-crazy without Banri was so typical Koko! The Exorcist and Heidi references, were epic!

Linda doing the splits and the class reunion was great as well. I loved the teacher coming back for Banri there. Respect for Banri from all his class.

I think the cracked mirror on the bridge wasn't an ill omen like some of you are pegging it out to be. To me it seems like Koko's mirror protected Banri from something bad happening (i.e. Ghost Banri pulling him off the bridge or something), and got damaged in the process.

I wonder what Linda was saying before the end there "Banri has Koko and I.... nevermind", I wonder what she's hiding in that scene... could it be another twist in the tale?

Preview for the next episode included a ring and Koko getting mad on the street, I really can't wait to see it! Looks like Mitsuo got shocked as well, maybe he finally finds out about Banri and Linda XD

By the way, can anyone enlighten me on whether they're animating the entire Golden Time LN series, or whether they're gonna stop somewhere in the middle and maybe ease off for a potential season 2?

Hmm...symbolism...a broken mirror.

Now with what happened on that bridge was weird because the two Banri's actually connected and they really can't play-off at this point that ghost Banri is all in his head. Regardless of my thought processes, man this anime is really amazing and after this episode. A 10 out of 10 rating is starting to come into the conversation for me.

I believe that at some point, the tables will be turned where linda and banri will be the one for most of the series and koko the forgotten one. (I really think that the old banri and the new banri can't be in the same body at the same time for now without switching personalities) ..it was hinted on the first few episodes that "he wont want to be who he was if it means leaving who he is now" ..so that will most likely happen.


Wow 18 episodes and people still don't know how the story goes. It's not going to happen. Go read the light novels.

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.

Does this mean ghost Banri will not return again or will he appear later in the series and become one with regular Banri

Ya still not in the Kouko camp. This episode wasn't even about her but just the "i was going through my bfs mail and then found myself in his room" bit is still like wtf Kouko.

Linda is still a great girl and friend. Banri is finding himself...or rather merging? Post the first 5 minutes this was a good building episode.


Linda's a great girl? Uhh Friend?? You're joking right? I'll use an old reference to describe the Banri/Linda relationship

" Back then didn't want me .. Now I'm hot and they all on me"

That is the best way to put their relationship

She's a part of Banri's problems as well but in her fans eyes I guess they don't matter and treat her as the best character in the show when obviously Koko/Chinami/Nana are superior

I love Koko, she approaches situations like i do and it makes me feel a little better about how stupid i know i can be sometimes.

Linda redeemed herself this episode, and I'm glad nothing exploded out of control at the reunion. This is exactly how it should go as far as I'm concerned… …but this is Golden Time. I say that with my tongue firmly placed against my cheek.

That last scene scared me a little, gotta be honest here.

EXORCIST! Very Nice Intro.
I find it amazing tho that Koko had the self control not to follow Banri :P (knowing her it isnt impossible, haha)

And that reunion too, amazing :D Never expected Banri to had a naive character in his high school days (seriously, using up a whole eraser to talk to a girl? wouldnt saying you lost it enough?)

and that dodgeball. Haha, I wanna team up with Linda :D

I think you're 100% right there. Firstly it looks like Banri had confessed to Linda several times and was trying to force an answer from her before the accident happened. She whimped out and asked him to give her a day. That to me speaks clearly that she saw him as a great friend but not really good bf material as he was really a bit of a looser. Then after the accident .. well to be honest he became a better guy and she regretted it. Even now she is still lying to Banri about her current feelings. I think now though that even if she told him nothing will change. It really is too late for her.

Also ... who the hell was driving the scooter???? It looks like a female to me.

Well. That episode was pretty light-hearted, it was nice. I just hope they handle Banri's 'memories returning' well, it hasn't been the best of success so far.

Loved the opening scene, Kaga calling banri an idiot while flailing around and then Nana saw her, I just had to rewatch it xD "Exorcist!"

Is it just me or she called Nana "Dana" around 4:00 min or so?

Linda called her brother a gorilla, HAHAHA. Poor Linda, got smacked in the face. "Don't tell me, it's me?", hahahaha. Old Banri was unique in his own way.

That sensei has a HAREM! Next episode seems promising as well.

This episode was hilarious! Bam, this anime is again back to it's original score i.e. an 8. Past few episodes have been good, and this one was esp. great.

Oh my God, the preview killed me.... Is his brother a mon---?

Whaha so many fantastic moments coming from Koko
Her stalkish attitude was hilarious on Banri's bed
Then Nana came in and makes use of her Exorcist moves

The Heidi moment just came out of nowhere with that yakuza coslay at the door

Linda and Banri back home was interesting at the second part
Liked the dodgeball game and Linda's split to face catch the ball , that and Koko's moment to join Nana's event with comical faces was something I haven't seen so far

The lucky mirror case breaking at Tada's scene of accident foreshadows bad things

I thought there was going to happen a bit more but it still was a good epispde though.

I really liked the scenes with Tada and his old class, especially the dodge ball scene. Also Kaga was hilarious at the beginning, every episode I love her more and more.

Loved this episode and got to see some more Nana which is always great to. The first ten minutes were hilarious and the second half of the episode was equally as enjoyable and handled Banri's reunion very well. To be honest before this episode I was nervous something bad would happen like hearing bad past gossip about him or something along those lines but I'm glad it didn't happen like that.

Looks like his memories are going to likely all come back to him eventually but I think the only one that will really shake things up is finding out who the biker was. Also, hopefully Yana doesn't become a drama queen about being left in the dark about Banri's accident when he returns home.

Ah ok, so because Linda isnt a main character, she cant get her screentime, makes perfect sense.If every anime would focus only on main characters and their story i would quit watching anime long time ago.
Also, imo Linda is more important to current events than Koko.

LOL Koko was pretty funny in the beginning.... Exorcist!

Well a high school reunion, Banri is like a celebrity when he came back. Damn, Linda got some skills for the dodgeball match, but I laughed when Banri got a little overboard and hit her face XD. I don't know why but the interactions between Linda and Banri felt good for some reason.

A few reminisce for Banri, rather if its good, or embarrassing XD. Oh is his memories coming back to him.

Linda best girl. Koko best girl. Solution? Harem ending.
Jokes aside, I wonder what the broken mirror will mean. I always rooted for Linda but Koko has been redeeming herself recently.
6 chapters to go and they're already covering volume 6. I'd assume this will not end with just the anime, but I haven't read vol 7, so I dunno how conclusive it is.

Kouko is even creepier than Bray Wyatt(WWE) when he does that Exorcist walk before setting up Sister Abigail.

I guess Ghost Banri finally accepted that he can't have Linda so he decides to go away.

The reunion was pretty good. Linda hit in the face while doing the split, pregnant couple, and some other classmates.

Btw, did anyone notice Banri's shirt that said Mexico? First time I've seen someone in anime wear a shirt from another country.

Really liked this episode. Banri is now really moving forward. I'm not sure though if he wanted to know about those past moments haha.

That preview cracked me up too :
-Well, actually, he is not my biological brother
-eh?
-One snowy morning, he was standing in front of the zoo with a banana...

Also have to add: This episode really accentuates why Banri should be with Linda. I'm not much of a shipper (as long as the show is well orchestrated, I'm cool) but I see more depth in the Linda/Banri pair over Kaga/Banri which is mainly shallow feelings and "I. Love. You. My. Boy~Friend!" kind of plot.

Really interesting episode this week. Liked how bits bobs were dropped here and there about Banri's past. And that photo has to be foreshadowing something! Also that moped scene, the more I see it, the more I think it could be Linda driving it. We have have to wait and see though!!
