If it's heading towards a Sylvia win, then there's ample time for development. After all, Charlotte had the same amount of time in pursuing and chasing after Teppei, enough to build up to what we're all seeing now. That's not to say Sylvia doesn't have any development, or it came out of the blue, it's quite the contrary as it's been Sylvia -> Teppei for a bit now, and all it takes it Teppei to get confused between the two girls to really get the ball rolling.

That's why I feel that calling winner at this point of the series is much too early; when the second half just opened up, it opened up to a lot of new possibilities. Well, that's depending on whether the anime chooses to pursue it, which I think we'll know with the next episode.

That, and I feel bad for betting on the 2D species of my gender like they're racehorses, but oh well, that's pretty much the only reason why I watch this series. For the prediction odds!

Charlotte : 58 %
Sylvia : 40 %
Yuu : 1 %
Seika : 1%

Just went by the Ricotta site. DVD vol 1 comes out on 23/10. I never pay attention to the trends, so does anyone know how long the wait is between DVD volumes?

EDIT: Went a bit further to the prilover.tv site. Vol 2 is 25/11. So by calculations, we'd get our chance to see onsen episode in its full glory around christmas. And ED single is 26th of this month.

The first half of the series has just ended; it's at this point here where they start weeding out the Red Herrings. As the second half of the series is proceeding, Charlotte just has to be extra cautious as...

Spoiler for Canvas 2/Shuffle dissection:


Right now, I really could see it going either way, maybe slightly leaning more towards Charlotte. But if the anime is going towards one of the directions I see it going, and if Sylvia plays her cards right, then there will be no doubt she'll deliver an equivalent of a Royal Flush over Charlotte's Full House in the very end.
At this point it feels like a Charlotte ending. The entire first half has been about her and Teppei....it's like the other girls are just there.

To be frank I understand where you're coming from but I'd be very surprised if Charlotte ended up losing.

It's not actually that surprising. I've only went through a small part of the game, and Charlotte's a LOT more pushier than she's shown in the anime. And yet, Teppei can still end up with someone else.

i think its kinda clear now that the plot is really going towards charlotte's route...

the one that needs the saving is charlotte (princess in distress) and the other girls are just there to support teppei to rescue her...

so i think i'll just stick around and wait for the episode when teppei and sylvie will drop the engagement...and oh, when charlotte drop her engagement with the new guy as well...oh i'm so happy...not...

(kinda sucks to know that i'm in the losing end and can't hide my bitterness about it)...

oh well, its a good thing i'm used to it...hehehe...

Remember that we are on week 7 out of 12.

That means 5 weeks to go. If they are focusing on Charlotte now, then she is not a winner.

If it has 24 episodes then I agree that Charlotte won't be a winner. Next episode will still be Charlotte x Teppei. The remaining are episode 9-12. But I think the winner should be cleared since episode 11. I really doubt who can beat Charlotte in episode 9-10. But I do hope that something will happen and it can change my mind.

I admit that I'm not fond of Charlotte's route but I also don't prefer the anime to pull Shuffle on us again. Changing the ending just for pure surprising without proper development or hints will make it more worst. IMO

But what if the rescue takes two episodes to complete? Then it's 9 out of 12
I like Charlotte anyway, so I clearly won't mind if that happens

It is a bit suspicious that they're playing up Charl's story at only the halfway point. I am beginning to think we will be subverting First Girl Wins here after all. Especially with the precedents of both Shuffle! and Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka.

Sylvia: 65%
Charlotte: 15%
Yuu: 15%
Seika: 5%

I bumped Yuu up just for the possibility that she's really flying under everyone's radar right now. After all, technically speaking she's the one spending the most time with Teppei, not Charl. Seika is, regrettably, dead last now barring a Shyamalan-grade twist in the story.

What I think that can deviate next episode to be Charlotte x Teppei is letting Silvia saves Charlotte instead. <_< Gives her a good hug, Silvia.

I suggest that you should put that in spoiler tag.

Speaking of Shuffle, Shuffle has different endings for different materials
Spoiler for spoiler:


I wonder would this series follow suit

This show has already shown that it's not your everyday harem 'main girl will win' show. & it's not as if the show is focusing just on Charlotte. There's the main plot going on, and her development along the way, which i personally wanted to see.

They'll probably deal with Sylvie after this, and then back to Charlotte for the finish.

This has 12 so it should be treated a little differently.

Aside from Charlotte, Sylvie's had a few moments here and there where she actually connected with Teppei.

So who knows? Though they are going full out with Charlotte and even Teppei's returning the feeling as well so it's more like.

90% for Charlotte, 18% for Sylvie, and 1% for Seika and the maid.
That's 110% but I think it's still accurate . In the current Arc both Sylvia's and Charlotte's countries are involved. This will probably last the rest of the Show. Really it shouldn't be resolved so fast. My estimate is character closure for Sylvia and further development for Charlotte. But there are little clues here and there that suggest Sylvia. Really though, Unless they totally develop Sylvia in these next couple of episodes it'll seem rushed.

I Would agree with the fact that they're already on Charlotte's issues too quickly. If this arc is resolved quickly, They'll probably move on to Sylvia's Issues (If this Arc doesn't solve them) and something will have to act as a sparker for their relationship.


Basically I think the end result depends completely on timing. Seika's problems are resolved so it takes her out of the picture, Yuu's are also. Charlotte's are getting resolved and Sylvia's have not been tackled.

It's like a murder mystery but it's Romance!
Please at least spoiler the Shuffle! Spoilers, I probably won't ever watch it but some people probably don't want to be spoiled.

Yeah but Charlotte is playing the damsel in distress this case. I just don't see him going anywhere after that.

Seriously....

Haha this show is getting better and better. The person Teppei ends up with is like almost for sure Charlotte.

If we had more episodes, then I could agree with you. Unfortunately we have 5 weeks left. There's just not enough time to focus Teppei's attention towards another girl, especially since most of his reactions have been around Charlotte. This series is too short to realistically end any other way(much to my ).

It's more like

Charlotte: 80%
Sylvia: 15%
Yuu: 4%
Seika 1%
