^ Well, the meme wasn't played well, so it was cliched IMO.

The episode felt very cliched and quite rushed in my opinion. While watching I'm thinking "okay, so she has amnesia, why is that such a big deal again?" This story seems like it really could have benefited from some time to build up the idea that they formed very precious memories during that year so the loss of those memories would actually be meaningful rather than just a fact with no real background to it. The ending was sweet but in a that's nice, but I've seen this before kind of way rather than anything actually groundbreaking. Hopefully this doesn't mean the entire plot will be rushed like ep6 was.

I agree, a really cliched story. I 'd say boring episode. Or better, it is not the story to be boring, but the way they presented it and this "stand alone" way to keep all the story inside one episode, moreover with a fast pace, cutting out everybody but the sisters and kouhei. after 5 minutes you could foresee the ending. But it could be me that I dont like when an episode is dedicated to a single character or substory.
I hope they don't mean to do it with the other characters. I guess i could not even stand a kiriha's episode
edit: forgot to say that mr perfect kouhei didn't help the episode.

hmm, notice when Haruna talked about her loss of memories from the accident publicly, Erika flinched?

Ep 6

Hmm what can I say - pretty standard?

I started to wonder if the the creator even got an inch of passion in creating this series . They got an excellent source of material but the presentation is just bland - a Fucking waste!

Time constraint are not excuses since even Yosuga No Sora despite having the same limitation still manage to pull it off


Seriously I just couldn't feel the effort

OK, so... an average episode for me. Not much to say, there was a problem which got solved. The end.
Maa~ The maids scene added some good entertainment. And I wonder if Haruna's memory loss was really just an accident?
Erika seemed suspicious going from her reaction.
Oh well, it seems like Shiro-chan will be centred next episode. That hair colour, figure and twintails just can't go wrong.

I really liked this episode. Haruna is my favorite character so it was good to see an episode based around her. Yeah, it was cliche, but it was a lot less cliche than that crappy sports festival episode we got last week IMO. Overall, a good episode that was a step up from last week IMO.

Unless they fastfoward everything, and destroy all the plots that make Shiro's episode boring...

This week's episode is a good example that not going extreme in term of execution can just work fine.
Although I still think the blatant flags between Erika and Kouhei are really way too rampant to my tastes, it was fairly good and they finally go back to business I should say.

Alright, so this episode was very enjoyable and good in different aspects but it didn't focus on Shiro. Still, her moments were glorious.
The bust size scene was really cute, her reaction to Erika's size wasn't as jealous as many would react and partly showed admiration.
Then when she asked Iori about the coupling with Yukimaru... hilarious. And she looked so serious when saying it!
Lastly, the part in the pool was just the best. If it was me, I would have hugged her and then back away, not just back away from that ultimate cute plead.

We can't answer your spoiler question in this thread because it's very likely the anime will cover it in future episodes. If you really want to know, you could ask in the game thread.

What if we answered it as a guess? From what I saw in episode 1, it seemed it was only Kohei that Erika had some sort of problem with (when her brother said something about him that seemed unnatural) also in episode 5 where Erika's brother, and Shiro's brother were at what it seems a roof discussing a "plan"...

I think they went a bit too far when they threw the poor nun in the swimming pool. DX

There really isn't any way to answer a question as a "guess" - if one has game knowledge, those become hints or nods in the right direction. Suffice to say, the anime is surely going to touch upon Erika's "blood sucking" tendencies, so VN readers shouldn't be in any hurry to elaborate. As relentless said, if one really wants to know, there is the game thread for that.

Well, if you recall one of the earlier episodes, Erika stated she considers it inelegant to suck blood from people, so it could be just that (And this sudden pain seems like a new issue, since she is surprised by it herself). Iori obviously has no issues with sucking blood, but he seems pretty content to use Bloodpacks as well. Whatever else, it certainly helps in keeping a low profile to keep the number of students with bite marks to a minimum, i suppose


On to the actual episode, myself is quite pleased. Animation quality was nice (especially liked the parts with Erika in her "blood surge" moments, especially the second one), pacing and character interactions were handled well, and it touched upon some of the more serious matters. They did change some things slightly, most notably how Erika's "blood surge" moment at the pool played out, but nothing to complain about overall. I am finding myself with not much to say on the episode, as most of the events that unfolded were quite self-evident, and execution was largely agreeable.

I will not, however, forgive them for scrapping the almighty "toilet brush" incident. The way it went originally left me in stitches and was one of the funniest moments of the VN, so it's a real shame they scrapped the comedy from it. Why!!


A rough recap of the original event (Been more than a year since i played this, and can't re-read at the moment, so going by pure memory here, so some parts are bound to be slightly off, but heh ... coupled with an image i managed to dig up)

Spoiler for toilet brush:
