Like that. (But unlike bored/angry/tense Sora, I used copy-paste. )

Yeah, that makes sense. Thanks for answering, guys.

It's kinda disappointing true. Then again, it's a bit sad as well if she's always hanging around Haru yet not once has she ever end up with him. But yeah, would much rather see her than Ryouhei and his weird beard.

Well, it's a bit more understandable though why she's more annoyed with Nao compared to the others. I don't know how it is in the VN, but they're really pressed for time to begin with so having more jealous Sora would take too much time for just a few episodes deal.

And yeah, things will be really tough next episode between them, but at least I hope that like other route ending up nicely, this one will have a good ending as well.

Yeah, that seems like the most possible answer.

Comedy, basically. At least, I laughed seeing that, especially how she uses it to cheat.

Soo .. there's actually story in this anime ? I dropped it after second episode because : Sora is annoying and Haruka is lame. Now all I see are new posts in the news section at Sankaku Complex how Haru goes around banging different girl each day.

Perhaps you should just watch more of the anime to decide for yourself. You may also wish to read this for an explanation of the way the story is being told.

The short answer is that of course it has a story... and that Sankaku Complex is the anime community's equivalent to a tabloid.

As much as I like Sankaku Complex... they really are presenting the show in a bad light (SEX, SEX snd.. more SEX >_>) and I'm really sick and tired with the whole SD comparisons to this show (Youtube...ugh)

So to answer your question... YES IT HAS A STORY!! (and of course you can't form an opinion of "this show sucks" from just watching the 1st 2 episodes >_>)

I don't know......would the anime be better if they just focus on the Nao/sora side of the story for the whole 12eps instead of having to spare some for the other 2? I follow this series so I can see what type of story they tell in the sora arc, but I didn't like how everything to be so compressed

oh and this question goes to relentlessflame, is there a clear reason behind Nao's decision to rape the shota? We saw her parents arguing, but I feel like we are still missing a piece of information on her motive.

*pats Kanon on the back*

Hey, they say that the first step to recovery is admitting. But don't worry, I think all of us to some level or another stick to these gender double standards, both male and female. We've had for such a long time and everyone simply reinforces it. It also doesn't help that I'm 'slighty" jealous of Haru for getting his cherry popped by Nao at such a tender age, considering how WONDERFULLY stacked she was even back then. Man, those breasts were beautiful......but anyway, sexism is wrong.

EDIT: I'm also curious as to why Akira head is so comically big in the omaka. relentlessflame? Any ideas, hmm???

DO NOT WANT. D:

The problem with adapting a VN is if you try and fit in parts form each route, it becomes nigh impossible to tell a coherant story as each has unique aspects. I haven't watched the anime, but from what I've seen so far from reviews indicates it's simply taking random bits from each route and gluing it together with sex. Probably going to give this one a miss. Not to mention Sora was my favourite chara in the VN so all this attention on Kazuha isn't rocking my boat either :P (although I have to admit fan of twincest that I am, some of the events in that route were a bit awkward even for me -_- )

Funny how most comments are actually positive, so if Sankaku wants to give the show a bad light, they are doing a terrible job so far

Also is hilarious to read negative comments from the "puritan" users.

Lane lines? I don't think so...



Unless this is a Japanese school thing? If it is, I had another reason to have wished I went to school in Japan cause it's a real pain in the ass to take lane lines out of a pool.

To be honest, I'm not sure whether I should answer this question yet because it's possible that they may come back to this point in the next episode. It's also possible that the anime may not develop this any further too, in which case those of us who have played the game could fill in the gap. Suffice it to say for now that you've made an astute observation: Nao's mental transition from "I can't stand my parents arguing anymore" to "I'm going force entice my childhood friend to have sex with me" is a bit jarring.

I'm not sure, to be honest, and I don't think it comes from the game. So I am guessing it's either some sort of pun/trope/reference that will be familiar to at least part of the Japanese audience... or it's just random wackiness.

The reviews you've read are pretty wrong. The anime is summarizing the game a lot due to the time crunch, but I'd say that for the most part they're doing a pretty decent job given the time they have available. It's definitely not "random bits from each route and gluing it together with sex"; the plots of the game are being fairly-well preserved. It's a show that moves very quickly so you have to pay attention, but the development is pretty solid and well-delivered. (From what I've read in certain places, sometimes I wonder if people's brains just leave their skulls as soon as they encounter a sex scene... )

There isn't "all this attention on Kazuha". Please read this post to understand what's going on.

So its ok for a girl rapes a guy as long as she is hot, while if it is the other way around it would be all wrong (doesn't matter how hot the guy is )?

A bit jarring? For me it was incredibly jarring lol. Yes, she realised it was bad right after but I honestly wonder what was up with her that made comfort sex through rape as the first thing to do when coping with a troubled family, at her age no less. Maybe her parents really stank at raising her or something, maybe she had seen something that gave her the impression rape is therapy, I dunno. It certainly gave me a really bad impression of her character.

Well, yeah, I was being a bit... tongue-in-cheek. I've already made my personal opinion about the situation pretty clear, but it's interesting to me to see everyone's varied reactions. And yeah, we'll see if they expand further on her motivation in the anime or not, but even without further explanation, we already have a really diverse set of opinions about it.

Ok, I love the anime, but it's quickly becoming a hentai... actually it probably already is. Also, what kind of fucking growth horomones are her parents feeding Nao? Do they live close to a nuclear power plant/waste dump area? Those are not natural at all. Like a J-cup at 9 or 10? Dear god. Her spine could literally not support those, she would snap like a twig.

Just watched the episode and I have to say I'm liking Nao's arc already. At least it looks like the focus is going to be on the actual love triangle and relationship between the principal characters rather than bringing in outside family problems to bog everything down this time around.

But is this really suppose to be the transitional episode for both Nao and Sora? Because from what I can tell, it looks like Haru is heavily leaning towards Nao already, unlike the neutral stance he still had for Kazuha and Akira in episode 2. So I guessing Sora's going to do something rather drastic in order for him to start looking her way when it comes time for her arc?

Oh, so there is further reason for the entire rape scene. Because no matter how much I try racking my brain, I currently don't see any correlation between Nao's family having a fall-out to her giving the young Haru the green light to play with her fun bags. Hopefully, the anime will shred some light on this whole ordeal and make sense of it in the future episodes like you said.

Mm I guess I wasn't very clear with that.

What I meant was, since Haruka's gone and (....) had some fun with Kazuha, it follows that either: he will stay with her (not going to happen due to omnibus format like you said) or he'll merrily go off and screw the rest of the cast. If the former, pooh Kazuha route xD But if the latter it would make Haruka out to be some Makoto-esque player bastard, which I know form the VN he most certainly is not. Either way, it's pretty jarring for me. And not enough Sora whatever the case :P (biased again but whatever <3 )
