Just watched the episode, and I thought it was a pretty decent conclusion to a good arc featuring a great character. Lol @ Kaoru falling asleep like that. Haruka looked amazing in that santa outfit. The development was better than Haruka's, but I don't think it's fair to compare because Kaoru had a pretty big head start via their friendship. Sae looks pretty boring at first glance. Hope I'm proven wrong.

Anyway, I gave it an 8.

Exactly how I 60% though also. The other 40% has to do more with being actually a huge fan of her expressions and character.....you got to admit no matter what that there will most likely not be a girl as unique as her in this series again unless Ayatsuji proves it wrong but only on speculations from the manga's point of view.

I know that bread scene was great for a prelude to her shy side but also random romance.....I do wonder still if Miya will play a role in all of this.

I think he might have to for one this girl is 1 year younger than him. It will be interesting to see him take the charge and how he does it. I hope it will give him +1 points for man up from me personally.

Maybe if she dresses up nicely for Junichi's first date? Depends on her fashion. It will be nice but hoping more for fan art of that.

I really enjoyed episode 8, Shame we didn't get to see Kaoru's special underwear though.

But, alas all well and good. Great arc!

I felt their relationship kinda moving a little too quick....it's not good for my heart . Oh, the side scene featuring Haruka was funny -- and she is definitely look sexy on that outfit.

Just watched ep. 7 and 8, and I'm really disappointed

Spoiler for ep. 7+8:


After the lead-up before, a really lame and anti-climactic end
Tossed my Kaoru avatar because of that. Bleh.
I thought it had potential after the first two episodes, but they really botched it, especially with that lame end 6/10

Next week that kawaii kohai is coming, which I've already been waiting for
Can only be better now.

Well, I just wrote out my take on those issues on the character discussion thread.

- The drama with her mom was supposed to run deeper. If they hadn't spent so much time on other characters throughout perhaps they would have had enough time to integrate it better.

- I don't think she's asleep, just playing with him again.

- and yes, the arc needed a proper future epilogue if only for consistency.

It was quite underwhelming indeed, Kaoru suddenly falling asleep after the build-up

I really wonder why she didn't wear that in her arc, he would've melted like ice in the sun.
That and the short Miya scene at the end saved the episode from bombing totally.

Well... a lot of mixed feelings for this one.

Spoiler for episode 8:

All in all, Kaoru's arc has been a wonderful tale of two friends becoming something more. In a way, it reminds me of what was said to me before, that being in relationship is like having the best kind of friendship ever.

What is this? Why the hell did Kaoru's kissing scene give off a sweeter aura than Haruka's!?

Sigh. I was never one for heroine's-face-zoom-in-lips-puckered kissing scenes, but I'm totally in love with the way they portrayed Kaoru's. So why didn't they do it to Haruka's...? I mean, I like Kaoru, but Haruka is still my number one (until Ai's arc comes, that is. ^^)

So-so episode, I guess. I kinda expected them to be consistent with the 10-year jump, but since it wasn't something I really looked forward to, I'm fine with it. Not to mention, d'awww lines were everywhere in this episode.

Anyway, Sae's next... Somehow, she's the only girl I'm not particularly looking forward to, but whatever. Let's all look forward to episode 2, the episode of kissing random body parts.

So Haruka's arc concluded (not counting the epilogue) with the two of them alone in a hotel room, Haruka wearing only a towel. This arc concluded in Junichi's bed, with Kaoru falling asleep while kissing. Something is not right here. People don't fall asleep while kissing. And what's with that little smile just afterwards?

The series goes to great lengths to not actually show anything ecchi, but at the same time it certainly throws some bones to imagination (compare Junichi's imagination in the nurse's office.)

I wonder if the viewer is suppose to imagine that Kaoru only pretends to be asleep or fainted from the long kiss, inviting Junichi to, uhm, play with her hair. I am told that many Japanese have a liking for girls who are completely passive during an intimate encounter, sometimes compared to a tuna fish. (Not a compliment in the West, obviously!) Supposedly this is a particular trait of Japanese culture, but I have only heard of it, having never had any such encounters with Japanese.

I am pretty sure the viewer is not meant to be forced to believe that they just slept the rest of the night, anymore than Junichi and Haruka did. That option is of course available for the religious viewer.

actualy this situation was quite plain,, e.g. >> kaoru didn't want to have sex with him yet, so she fell asleep and afterwards she smiled, but he didn't notice that...
As for my understanding of this situation.

I have to say the initial part seemed a little mundane, but at least it peaked at the ending, especially the confession scene. Still the overall episode wasn't as good as it could have been.
