Rei appreciation episode, huh? Well, it's nice to see them making up for lost time. I guess they really did pay attention to the feedback about the last episode...

I would be more irked by the blatant foreshadowing in Koizumi's story if I didn't feel as though Koizumi isn't actually Smile in the past. To me, the words he was saying, and his obvious bitterness...

I sort of agree with what you're saying--Smile definitely needed to step out of Peco's shadow--but I just can't see the path he's on as being framed as a good thing, especially at this point in time....

I don't know about that. Smile seems as firmly within his own shell as before. He certainly doesn't seem to derive any outward sign of pleasure from his new training regimen. To be honest, it...

Wow, really? That's impressive. He doesn't sound raw to me at all, though, admittedly, I don't know Chinese so it might just be totally escaping my attention.

I don't know that Smile "means" it either, since it's pretty much impossible to tell how he actually feels about, well, pretty much anything. I meant more in the sense of...Smile doesn't have to buy...

I'm running out of superlatives for this show.

Part of the reason it works so well is that it manages to be clear without being obvious, both in general direction and in the writing of the...

Man, this series is already incredible.

I really love the friendship between Peco and Smile, how it's such a mixture of things for both of them--and not all of those things are good. That feels...

Oddly (or perhaps, not so oddly), the set up of this episode reminded me a little bit of Free, in terms of some of the character personalities, their flaws, and general narrative beats, except the...

We're going in circles at this point in time. I stick to my original assertion that A) Gotou has been shown to value his relationship with Masayoshi in such a way that a future romance is not an...

I didn't say every interaction between Gotou and Masayoshi is characterized by "waiting", I said that the most emotional ones were usually characterized by Gotou waiting for Masayoshi. It's not a...

Gotou has been characterized, romantically, as someone who "waits." He waits for his vanished girlfriend for years and years. So it should probably say something to the viewers that a lot of the...

But he wasn't in public, he was in his own apartment for crying out loud.

It's also pretty obvious that his confession to Gotou was sincere, if ill-thought out. There's no point in having Gotou...

Ah, that was a nice ending.

Yes, on the one hand it was ridiculously rushed--probably needed at least one more episode, though two would be ideal--but I figured it conveyed what it was going for...

I think Banri has a lot of reasons for being passive, some of them good and some of them not so good. But no matter what his reasons are, either way he's sort of gotten used to Kouko picking up the...

Oh Banri, you poor, poor idiot.

Once again, as usual, I feel the worst for Kouko. When the chips were down in previous episodes, Kouko always went after him. (Banri literally runs away after...

I think what's going on is pretty simple. Kouko has decided that--perhaps after seeing Chinami's footage--that's she's a roadblock to Banri's mental health. In said footage, he's rolling around,...
