Well, since we're really starting out on the portion of the novels I, for one, am totally unfamiliar with, I hope for the best. This series has been constantly great so far, I wish for it to keep the pace up.

Maybe we'll get some clarification on Kitamura's biz with Sumire?

Are we sure it's going to premiere this episode? I remember someone saying it'd be 14 and that didn't happen.

14 seemed like the prelude to the whole kitamura arc, kinda set the stage for all the madness that is to come.

I'm really hoping for more twists from the norm, in in this case, the novel. Loved how they elegantly put the spin-off and storyline in one episode; hope it continues to surprise us that way, even if it really is gonna follow that Kitamura dilemma.

no new op and ed yet
Great episode yet again. Ya-chan is awesome.
They cut out some Ami scenes and it seems pretty (too much imo) fast paced. Now I gotta wait for the subs -_-

I suspect the new OP/ED will pop up at the end of this arc (or prior to the final arc).

Sadly, no new OP and ED. Production issues, perhaps?

Rather than being fast-paced or rushed, I felt it downplayed some of the feelings instead, like Ami's haughtiness and Ryuji's anger from the novel. I was hoping for more Ami, so I can see her take on the conflict. But in the purely anime standpoint, it was a good episode, and the thoughts and emotions were conveyed well enough. Oh, and Taiga was at her cutest this episode; especially heart how she cried for the second time for the entire series.

A cut-and paste of the original novel storyline, but trimmed neatly to remove the unnecessary and to bring out the main theme. Excellence.

Can only give this episode a 7/10.

The episode was enjoyable, but they changed some of the best parts of this novel. And not in a good way to be honest. :/

Anyways, I still liked the episode and found Taiga very cute at times

Ryuuji just doesn't understand Ami at all, instead completely misunderstands her. He still doesn't even know or see the real Ami.......AHHHHHHHHHHHH show needs more Ami! Ryuuji is boring already, give us something new!

typhonsentra, no the record was still ZnT II season last episode where the covered a full book within less than two minutes. Nothing can beat that.

But they really cut a lot of things out, and most of them involving Ami...

Woah, seems like quite a bit of novel material was excluded.

Well, in any case, if the cuts are justified and does not differ from what the novel is conveying then it's alright, right?

Nice episode once again. I kinda think that the animators had it easy cause they had a very good story to work on. If this series becomes a considerable success with sales figures to support it, most of the credit should go to the author.

Ryuuji's mum was awesome. Loved the
