For once.. I actually did not mind the narrator in this anime, she is a shy heroine so there was not much of a problem going on. The narrator was actually nice enough to not say anything through the chatting that it would be difficult to read the subs.

This episode was actually quite nice, was not expecting it to be good, but was really surprising.
Also my predictions of Miya appearing more in this arc are coming true

That was a "Run Melos" joke (about getting the bread)?

Ookami-type narration was so random and unneeded... What, because it seems she's unpopular in the game, so now that it is her turn, the staff decided to have fun and do a name joke (Sae's last name and Jouji's last name are both Nakata, though different kanji) and invite Jouji to narrate in a joking manner?

The episode... Tachibana's sexual harassment, art style in the episode felt more deformed than usual, lots of Mya~, etc. It was okay, I guess. Can't say I held any interest in Sae's character, though her voice is...
A lot of Mya~ never hurts, and the scene where Tachibana got burned in the crouch was priceless.
I wonder if any other episodes are going to be narrated like this...

I pray the rest of this arc is not narrated, Ookami-type narration is defiantly not needed like you said, but as long as the narrator keeps quiet during the talking part, and not trying to think of any "silly jokes" that might be found hilarious. Then we are somewhat fine.

I bet the staff that is making this do not like Sae that much.. So they decided to turn this into somewhat of a Comedy/Romance arc.. Which if they really did.. I would feel ashamed..

Atleast we get more Miya, she was never featured much in the other arcs, and was mostly just put into "filler" spots in the other 2 arcs while the main characters did there thing.

Surprisingly good start to the arc. The added humor from everyone (Junichi, the narrator, and especially Miya) brings some much needed spice to what would otherwise be a plodding episode, and Sae does have her cute moments. The giant rack certainly doesn't hurt to look at either

I was startled when Junichi bumped into Haruka so early in the ep. It almost seemed like he was going to pursue her again

They should change narrators for every episode. I wouldn't mind hearing Kuroko's seiyuu mocking Junichi's advances

I loved how they added Ookami-san style narration into the story. The humor was just right, not too much but good enough for some laughs.

I don't mind the narrator. He doesn't talk the whole time, so that's good. Did the other arcs have a narrator...I didn't notice it..
I laughed at how more aware of the audience is though.

like when the chalk board passes in front of the camera and it says "boy meets girl" on it.

As always, really enjoy the little cameos of the past girls.
So far, this girl is probably my least favorite. Way too timid and soft-speaking, she's acting like an elementary schoolgirl...
usually I don't mind it that much, but it really gets to me with this girl. Her ending song is okay though, for some reason I kind of like it.

looking forward to the rihoko route.

at least we're getting good screentime of Miya. I kind of little running gag of her and meatbuns.

Not a bad start to the new arc. Though not a fan of the narrator. Kind of throws off the feel from the other arcs to have that guy saying the obvious. Hopefully he's gone for the rest of it or at least doesn't appear very often.

Good thing Junichi lost the janken since either of those girls having to carry him might be dangerous .

Thumbs up Some GIFs

I could not hold out any longer but I am still upset that it took so long to have a RAW around the internet it was ridiculous while farming to check my internet to see if it was even there. So yeah I was at that. Well now that I saw this.....I can say that I saw the ED sequence over 6 times alone! I love the song and little things about Sae in it. I was right in choosing this girl as my #2 and now I am happy I did. Some comments on the episode based on different parts.

First thing I have to say is 3 ROFL so badly parts that my stomach hurts and I know I am not the only one. First one was Junichi having no air to breath here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/6936a1c2.jpg
The second one is Junichi having his crotch burned by coffee here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/63a1936f.jpg
Third is for sure Miya calling him a hentai person here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/e4b11427.jpg
Other interesting things were they featured that the school gets a lovey dovey during the proper season here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/e051e6bc.jpg
Miya was indeed cute here as someone mentioned before=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/ed2a9fde.jpg
Rings a bell from a certain anime here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/e2648e84.jpg
I like how the room is shown in a different angle and time here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/a9bddae1.jpg
Yeah right for Junichi to become this person=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/d2b87c36.jpg
Time to be ecchi in this situation if only Miya was not around here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/2ba0dfd2.jpg
Well that is start to something strange to happen sooner or later on both ends although Sae did have a taste of a guy's breathing and so did Junichi of Sae's breathing...interesting thing going around=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/19feb69e.jpg
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/73fdd2dd.jpg
Yeah the scratch was pretty nasty I will admit that here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/b271a5a1.jpg
Amazing art rendition here=>
Spoiler:

Why I loved the ending....because of elements like all these=>
Ok GIF time! These I made now but be ready for a lot more! The ones you most likely want due to ecchi factor in that was never too much around.....the fantasy about breast groping=>

Original here since it's big=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/8035eaca.gif
Breast press here=>

Original here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/35aff4d9.gif
Cute little Sae avatars from ED here=>

Their originals here=>
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/60a45b0d.gif
http://i620.photobucket.com/albums/t...3/04986ce9.gif
A little something NSFW from the ED I made with no stupid writing credits on it=>
Spoiler:

So did I love this? Apart from the forced ecchi that is improved greatly that I think made fun of Sae a little and the really dumb narrator thing I hate and was at it (good thing I am not the only one at least) I loved every little thing about Sae from her fear to her clumsy side to her character. 10/10! Can't wait to get ED of this arc.....so bad want it now.....Someone put TV version on internet somehow!

"Oh, so Nakata Jouji is doing the narration for his fictional daughter's arc" was my first thought when I heard him

Narration was uneeded and not particularly funny but it's always nice to hear Nakata-san's manly voice. I'm not sure if Sae's voice actress improved or if I'm just getting used to her voice, but I enjoyed her performance in this episode. She did a nice job as this utterly shy kohai with large breasts. I'm starting to like the character as well. Her ending song was pretty terrible though.

That was a nice and fun episode, way better than I thought it'd be. Sae's shyness is endearing, however, I think she's a little too shy for my tastes. I hope she'll improve throughout for the arc.

The true star of the episode was Miya for me (`・ω・). Some great moments with her.

PS: Sae gets +10 point for being the only heroine wearing thighhighs everyday.

Heck yeah for that! Also +1 for being the only girl having a VIP ride most of the time. Whether it is her father or private chauffeur. Yeah zettai ryouiki, most be popular in Japan, I did not see as much in Marseilles sadly.

I dreaded Sae's voice before this arc started, but in the end it has been totally obscured by the horror of the narrator. Why the hell did they come up with a narrator now? What's the point? It's neither funny nor does it help to develop the atmosphere, imho. Majority of people seems to like the narrator; I don't, though. Every time that creepy voice suddenly began to speak, it ruined the atmosphere for me.

I was really afraid that I wouldn't like Sae's arc, but I was pleasantly surprised. Contrary to my expectation, I don't mind Sae at all and I've got pretty much used to her voice, too. The sexually suggestive misunderstandings in this episode were quite good and even though you can't really build the fun on Sae herself, Junichi and his sister took care of it very well. But still, the narrator is such a huge let-down...

I think it was a funny episode and I like the way Junichi was assertive this episode, by the way i'm guessing Sae is the 'cute' character cos she looks a bit different from the last time she made an appearance.

Edit: Pics

Episode 1:


Episode 9:

-Pretty weak first episode, plus the narration made it feel awkward

-Annoying Voice, go back to Wagnaria!!

-Sae was cute, though

-Hearing Ai in the preview makes the wait even harder

You're right. She is cuter now. Her chin is not that sharp anymore and her expression is sweeter and gentler.
