Lol I don't get the romance at all, anyone care to explain? So eventually the tsun character begins to have a liking to the main character? But what for what reason?

The series was a bit strange to me at first, I didn't get the way they presented the show. But eventually I began to like it as it progressed. Preferably I liked the girl, and how her character changed throughout the show, slowly as she began to intereact with the boy that had saved her.

what is there to explain? like in many stories, the girl fell for the guy because he was nice to her and nobody else was, and she was lonely. Very common reasons women fell for men and she told this to him. The only difference was that the girl took the initiative and the boy accepted her feelings.

I need to expand on that.

Hitagi didn't fall for the guy because he was nice to her; if it was all about doing one favor for another, then what she said in ep 3, that of doing him a favor of his choice for one week (perverted or not), would have been enough to even the score.

What made Hitagi love him is NOT what he had done, but who he IS as a person. To love someone isn't an action, but a state of being. She would BECOME his lover, fundamentally changing her status as an individual. But to do that, she can't love him just because of his actions, but who he IS as a human being.

Hitagi love him because he is the type of guy who help people unconditionally. Love for who he is, not what he does. And that's why it took until ep 5 for her to confess, as that was how long she took to confirm he is the type of person she wants to love.

Exactly she said it directly in episode 5. She said i have figured out what type of person you are. He is the type of person who would help anyone not getting anything out it he would help anyone for the simple fact that who Hitagi is. Once i heard her say that part i knew instantly why she feel for him.

Thank you that explained things more clearly.

The drama CD is "out" on nicovideo, but there's a lot of spoilers for those who haven't watched the whole anime or read the novels yet, so steer clear.

This anime deserves to be put into the Popular Anime thread. The epic part is another fight with the loli-ghost.

Any options for poor, ignorant English-only masses?

Do fansub groups ever pick these things up?

I agree but what's the condition? I mean how can we measure that the series is popular enough to have its own sub-forum?

Drama CD!
Wow, Shinobu's voice and how to talk are awfully cute.
It is unbelievable that Shinobu's seiyuu and Haruhi's seiyuu are the same.

Isn't it the number of the views per month recently?

Yeah, but how many for the minimum requirement? Can this site show statistic views per day or per month for each thread?

Not the number of views per month, but from what I understand, the amount of ON-TOPIC posts per day... quite a few of the sub-forums tend to have posts that appear every two minutes or less when a new episode/chapter of manga has appeared

we're only at about 50 pages over five episode... except in some of the cases, we'd usually need about twice this amount by now to get a sub-forum

... that, and a lot more hype of upcoming things needs to be put in as well

Is the sub-forum really that necessary? I don't think there's much to talk about in this show. Beside, one thread is better for discussion and also easier to track, IMO.

Spoiler for the usual staffs explanations, feel free to ignore:
From the official blog, they seems to have re-dubbed something for the recap episode that's going to broadcast tonight (JST) and it will "make the light novel's readers happy". My guess is 30 mins recap with Koyomi's monologue. It should be fun.

For the drama CD, I still couldn't accept Shinobu's Konata voice but Kanbaru and Nadeko's voices are just perfect. Really expecting for more Kanbaru's ero talk!
