Kinda was expecting Akira's route to be superior to Kazuha's, but not THAT superior. Akira is truly likable (plus extremely cute) and the episode was quite fast paced, full or interesting developments. The bath scene was breathtaking, but it can be even better with an extended blu ray version

I also like how Sora is always present, even during the routes of other heroines.

I recall myself saying that Akira is a person who is hard not to like, when doing a summary on the title's characters back before it started, and going by the comments here it seems said assertion holds true

A quite enjoyable episode overall, even if it did move at a break-neck pace (though that goes without a saying at this point i believe). Akira and her interacting with others is always fun to watch (loved the "toilet? " "NO!" part ), and it felt like this episode had a better flow to it than the previous ones. Haru did leave me scratching my head this time around though - was he really thinking he would have a chance of finding the pendant just like that by digging in a random location ? The intent here was clear - to show that Haru is completely focused on the idea of helping Akira regarding her mother, one way or another, to the point of being somewhat pushy about it, but him showing up in that getup with a shovel in hands really had me going "Boy, what are you thinking".

Nothing much to say about the bathroom scene, i quite liked what they did here. Aside from serving as the quickstart point for the romance, they also set a decent mood and took the opportunity to show that Akira, despite her cheerful and outgoing personality, doesn't really have much in terms of close human interaction and is living in fairly lonely circumstances, with her drifting back to past memories about her 'grandfather' as the only counter to that. The parallels with the legend Kazuha told Haru and Sora are certainly not unintended.

A shame it already ends next week ... if anything, this path could have certainly used more time than 2 episodes to tackle all the issues (And they could have sacrificed Motoka's omakes at the end in favor of more "useful" screentime ). At any rate, it is going to be a quite packed finish, here's hoping they do justice to it in the short time they have.


On another note, this episode featured a number of changes compared to the game.

Well ... perhaps they didn't want to break the somewhat serious mood of the whole event with the full display ? It is hard to say whether they "went all the way" or not (though personally i would be surprised if it didn't evolve in to that from the situation we left off, but it can go either way). Either way, i am fully expecting them to feature a fully on-display scene next week, much like with Kazuha, so perhaps they just didn't feel the need for two scenes. It is not, after all, what the show is about; and to that end, one scene is plenty to drive home their point.

I have to say that the look on Akira's face as Kazuha's mother passed by didn't look like the face of indignation or embarrassment, rather it looked almost like abject fear. Her fidget when she passed in front of her made it look like she was expecting to be hit...

this episode was really fast paced Q__Q
i didnt expect to see nudie's so quick, so i thought it'd be all right to watch on the computer where everyone in my house can see, (because the screens bigger) and then when the bathe scene came up i tried to hide it quickly

but it was too late

sisters saw the boobies!

.___.;

nevertheless, the episode was sweet :3

Those two are really going for it, ha? I also think that this episode was a fast-pace one...

lol, that must have been quite an hilarious scene to watch... just a little reminder... YnS is better watched alone.

by the way... yeah, I agree with most people here. I feel like I'm enjoying Akira's arc way more than Kazuha's...

and they sure know how to keep me entertained with all the Akira service they put in this ep.

Akira's pantsu, for example, have been quite a nice view =>

I share the same thoughts as those who find Akira's arc more enjoyable than Kazuha's. My, my, she sure was bold lol. Wonder if like Kazuha, Akira's issue with her step-mother will be resolved before the climax of her arc, so to speak. I chuckled at Haru's suiting up, man he sure is a city boy huh?

You're saying it wrongly. Yosuga no Sora is better watched in solitude, where we are at least alone.

Excellent! The arc prior was okay, I thought I'd wait for my favourite Sora to finally make her debut but man, Akira really hits the jackpot.
Obviously, this scene's the best:
Spoiler for bathing NSFW:

It was not only hot but also kind of dramatic and romantic putting it into context.
And "something hard is poking me", that was so adorable and funny that moment became priceless.

Development obviously uber fast, but also uber acceptable and comprehendable.
Haru wasn't worse either in this one, he pretty much showed likable characteristics for me, though the full-geared pathfinder thing was a bit overboard, oh well!

I read something about a twist in an earlier post, looking forward to next episode's conclusion.
