Well I can see the WTF is that of the first half with everyone although I gave my impression guess someone gave the proof of all that. Anyways it's GIF time! First of all Freebies!

The first half... well... I half expected Junichi to pull a small powder-filled bag out of his coat and say "Fuck! This is some good shit."

Either way, I'm a bit disappointed by this arc. Maybe my expectations were too high after reading the manga, which was outright amazing. There were simply many scenes I wanted to see in the anime, which were never shown. It seems as if the people from the anime decided to focus on the most plain scenes from the game's arc, for some reason. Not to mention that, in my opinion this is, the build-up has been rather boring, whereas in the manga it was just perfect.

Oh well, I'm just hoping they do not screw-up with Tsukasa.

Never did i think i'd experience Yukana voice miso ramen.

Jun jumping into the pool scene worked a lot better in the manga. Guess it doesn't help that the pacing was pretty off this episode.

I'm a bit disappointed that there wasn't a kissing scene in the pool like there was in the manga adaptation, but I'm glad they didn't handle it the same way as the manga. While it makes sense that Ai could have trouble concentrating because she's thinking about Junichi, explicitly making him at fault like the manga did would have placed Junichi in between a rock and a hard place without a clear resolution. If Junichi was made out to be the problem, then I don't see how the anime could have convinced me that he was also her support. I don't even think the manga convinced me, but I didn't mind because the kissing scene was so sweet.

I've been thoroughly satisified with how the anime has handled Ai's story. With how Junichi and Ai grew closer through fairly average events, their relationship feels even more natural and seamless than Junichi and Kaoru turning from friends to lovers.

The first half though, was probably fanservice in my opinion. Ayatsuji as a crying child was foreshadowing her arc, Kaoru was for more cameo eye-candy, and Junichi eating out Ai was more or less an indirect sex/intercourse joke. Of course, it is silly how a haunted house could work on induced hallincinations, because I'm sure anyone who designed that in the real world would get sued. However, I just took it as the same kind of crude humor as the fanservice plagued in Sae's story.

There was one? Oh wow! Wonder how Hibiki would react to that kissing scene. Might have been a plus to see that.

Hibiki didn't show up in that scene in the manga.
Try reading the manga after the anime arc is over. It's simply so good.

Guess I will but does it show all of the arc or it's not finished like some mangas of Amagami SS?

No, Amagami - Love goes on! is only about Ai's arc. It's a very short adaptation, with only four chapters. But, if you ask me, each one of those chapters is made of gold.

First half as many say......Huh?!

Second half was kinda meh. It had some good parts.

All in all, it felt rushed for what it's worth.

Me thinks they should of done a 6 episode format.

More time to take nice and easy. Anyways.

This one gets a generous 7/10. The manga of course was better.

I first thought that first half was Junichi's dream after fainting from the roller coaster or something.... but then Ai was all "you tried to eat me!" and I was like "wtf?!"

So umm... I guess it's legal in Japan to have halluciongenic drugs in theme park attractions lol?

Second part was though.

Why are they foreshadowing Tsukasa's story? Its supposed to be Ai's arc. The haunted house started good but it turned into something weird and irrelevant. The Miso Ramen joke was funny but it doesn't add up to the story and is definitely a filler...A filler in a 4 episode arc?! The writers are really losing their edge...*sigh I don't know what to say, its like the writers are purposely screwing Ai's arc...

Anyway the later half was good. Ai showed her aggressiveness when she kissed Junichi. The pool scene was ok but I find it too short and didn't have the proper build up.

I guess I'll start reading the manga.

The first half was crazy. Not going to say too much there.

The second half was amazing though. The kiss scene was brilliant because it displayed Ai's assertivness so well. First of all, I think she stood up at first to give him a tease look or two. I think everybody knew what was coming when she sat down though. I just freakin love that she's not afraid to be bold. The swimming scene was good, but they ruined it at the same time. I wanted the kiss in there. That is what made that moment epic in the manga. In a broader sense, I don't like how they condensed the swimming part of the arc into one episode. It didn't feel right. I can't wait to see the finale though. I can safely say at this point that the manga will be better at the end of the day. For those of you who haven't read it, go and do so. It's at least twice as good than what we're getting here.

Episode gets a 9 for having one of the most memorable scenes in the anime.

You got to admit the same about the part of Junichi not commenting on her clothes but when he did she teased him it was too late.

Now I'm sure of it: the third episode of each arcs are cursed.

My feelings about the first part are the same as everyone else's: what the hell am I watching? I remember seeing male Kaoru in a fanart but I thought it was just your typical genderbent fanart. Not sure what they were trying to do here... Ah well, it was worth it for Ai's outfit, she sported a glorious zettai ryouiki. Can she get any more perfect? She can even make a miso ramen sound erotic.

The second part was very good. Ai's assertiveness is also one of the thing I love about her, so it was great to see her take the initiative and kiss Junichi. I was wondering if Junichi was the reason Ai didn't manage to improve her time and after reading Used Can's post, I guess it was. It does seem like they've made the right choice by leaving this out, the drama would have probably been handled just as badly as in Kaoru's arc.

Junichi diving into the water only to catch Ai right when she's about to get out of it felt dumb. Very dumb. I suppose they tried to make the scene more intense but they utterly failed as it had the opposite effect on me (I found it hilarious). I still very much enjoyed this episode thanks to Ai.

Well, that's Yukana for you. She can go from extremely cute to extremely sexy at ease. I'm seriously surprised she doesn't get more roles.

Well, in the manga, the whole deal was rather gradual. At first, she decided to change swimming styles, when one opportunity seemed to be closing. Junichi was aware of this, but she kept on saying it was okay, until all the opportunities were over and the scene in the pool happened. Anyway, Junichi wasn't at fault at this. It wasn't as if he went to fetch her, while she was practising. Ai fell in love with him and, without noticing, her priorities started switching, even though she really wanted to get into the tournament.

Since in the preview Haruka said "arm pits" then next week we get the body part fetish !? I don't think it will be a kiss since with Sae there was no kiss but evidently we can assume the body part in that arc was Sae breasts.

Yukana has maybe not got many role but she gets big one such as Tessa, CC, Ai etc....What's important is not the quantity but the quality

I like this episode. It's true that the first half was weird but when you think about it it was probaly because of the gaz. Even if was a bit wtf, it show some nices interraction bewteen Ai and Junochi.

The second part was well handled. The kiss scene, the swiming pool. Really good. Now, it's true that there was not the kiss at the pool like in the manga but it's not surprising at all. The developement is not the same. It makes more sense to have not a kiss there than to have one. The kiss will be for the last episode.
