As mentioned in the previous thread by someone, Ayatsuji appears to be a loner of sorts. She is always friendly appearing and supportive of everyone, but you never ever see her with anyone that would be consider her friend. Hence, Junichi might be her real, first "friend", in a sense.

Yeah, but I noticed that Yukari looks almost identicle to Tsukasa in this episode, so to me, they are equally cute.

I loooveeeeeeeeeeee her personality(s). It's very fun given that one side she shows the utmost maturity and the other shows a sign that she's a little kid (Also hints of dominatrix).

She's definitely giving Haruka a run for her money...if she keeps her playfully evil side up.

Tsukasa is definitely giving more evidence to my hypothesis of:

Spoiler for Show Reference:


But in a more fun, teasing way.

Also...the piggyback

Opinions are wonderful.

Also Ayatsuji's foot scene totally makes up for one not happening in Rihoko's arc. <3

I would definitely become a masochist just to be by her side. Talking about Ayatsuji Tsukasa.

This episode made of WIN. Hibiki joining the Santa contest is an event to watch. But I'm kind of wary because of Rihoko's arc butchered, I hope Tsukasa will not be friendzoned too. She 's too good to be just friends.

And yes the Kare Kano reference though it's more of a girl Soichirou doing the sadistic moves to Junichi. Tsukasa varies form Yandere, to Tsundere And Perfect girl. I would really become her slave if she wants.

Her breast her ass. HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG!! ~dies from nosebleed

Edit: I thought it was a bit sad that despite how well-received Tsukasa is with her teachers and peers, it seems only Juinchi visited her after she passed out. That's the impression I got when she told him thanks for coming; the class rep is always supporting/helping out everyone, not the other way around. That's the problem with insisting on being self-reliant; eventually people will let you be, even when you actually want someone looking out for you once in a while.
Yes, no one really care about her at school. Actually, the only one is Junichi. And it was a good episode indeed. I'm glad the focus was only on Junichi and Ayatsuji. I'm waiting for the next one which should be interesting if it's like Precious Diary.

Quoted for truth ^_^

Well, you can't really debate beauty. It's just that for me, obvious simplicity and obliviousness (to avoid the more appropriate "dumbness") is a huge turnoff for me. If anything, beautiful exterior paired with thickness elicits a more negative reaction in me than average looks paired with a simple mind.

Anyway, this arc demonstrates the huge advantage of the omnibus format. Condensing the character interaction to an extract is much better than diluting it by the necessity to give other characters airtime, too.

Still, it's regrettable that we only get 4 eps. This character combination would be good for much more enjoyable development.

Where is this masochist talk coming from? This isn't MM... ^_^;

Seriously, Ayatsuji isn't really a sadist, and Junichi isn't a masochist at all. Ayatsuji wasn't threatening Junichi for her own enjoyment (sadism), but for a very clear reason: To make him shut up, and so, for maintaining her appearance. And Junichi doesn't enjoy the threats, just the opposite. He shows a mixture of tolerant tenacity towards Ayatsuji, which allows her to drop her act when she is with him. His enjoyment is based on doing something meaningful and worthwhile WITH Ayatsuji, about being WITH her. Not about being abused (so, he's no masochist).

Yes, you can make the case that at the very end, when she was muttering to herself that she would bully him/toy with him even more tomorrow could indicate that she enjoys "abuse", but she hasn't really done anything "bad" to him in the first place. It's rather that she enjoys being with him too - and most particularly, she enjoys not being forced to maintain her mask in his presence.

Seconded.

Men still prefer outer qualities over inner ones.

Well, I think she likes bullying him a little. It doesn't mean she's a sadist either but it doesn't also mean she doesn't like bullying him.

Hey, an air-head can be cute too. You may not want to date her long term, but it doesn't mean you can't say she's cute.

Even though a dog urinated on it?

And why couldn't she walk to the tap? I mean, her foot is already dirty. Plot devices...

They should have focused on one girl for each arc; Don't put little cameos and waste time with the other girls. This arc is doing a fine job, thankfully.

Well, there are varying levels of S&M. The girl doesn't need to have leather outfit with a whip to be a sadist and the guy doesn't need to be restrained and humiliated to be a masochist.

Are you sure that the dog urinated on her foot ? But from what I observe, dogs tend to pee in places they want to mark. Does this mean the dog wanted to put a "mark" on Tsukasa, to smell her wherever she goes?
Tsukasa-chan is LOVE.

Shouldn't we stop distributing labels on "she could be" assumptions? I really don't think that there is anything substantive enough to support a "sadist" claim on Ayatsuji, and labeling Junichi a "masochist" is simply flat-out wrong.

A masochist is someone who is taking pleasure out of humiliation and pain. Nothing is further from the truth with Junichi, he is genuinely scared. Yet, at the same time he's trying his best to follow through with the festival work, and - like he says - even though Tsukasa coerced him into working hard - he enjoyed doing this together with Tsukasa. Masochism jya nai.

Sadism is a harsh harsh word to use. When you have someone you like to tease and mess with, does that make you a sadist? Is the threshold this low?

It's true that there are indicators that Ayatsuji likes messing with him, e.g. when she decides to bully (ijimeru) him some more tomorrow. But sadism, as in drawing pleasure out of the torment of someone else? I don't see it. Playing pranks on him, messing with his mind a bit, THAT'S what she's doing. Not whipping him into total submission.

There's a German proverb: "Was sich neckt, das liebt sich" - which roughly translates to "those who tease each other, love each other". That feels more like what's going on.

Seriously, you need to know what a yandere means. Tsukasa so far showed us that she has Type B tsundere traits and perfect girl mask. She is on the psycho side a little but that is not a yandere only trait.

Asuka Langley Sohryu from evangelion is a well know tsundere with psycho tendencies but no one called her a yandere. In fact Tsukasa is like copy cat of Sadamoto's manga's Asuka where Asuka also carries that perfect girl mask in front of adults (dont bother wit Shinji though, shows him all of her worst) and has psycho tendencies.

Tsundere? Yes, Tsukasa is a pretty clear case of type B tsundere, but yandere she is not

My bad. No need to argue with that. It's just that I'm a Yandere lover and giving dead eyes reminds me of one. So don't scold me OKAY. No need to be so serious.

The better question is why didn't she move out of the way.

Okay, it is not correct to label either of them with those words, especially Junichi. However, psychologically speaking, which is what sadism was focused on before it become associated with sex, the happiness Tsukasa showed at the end, in regards to troubling Junichi, is sadistic in nature. I am just trying to say there is a very wide "spectrum" for this because it is psychological in nature. In Haruka's arc, that cafeteria scene where Haruka was a prisoner of sorts, was S&M, even though no one was being physically hurt.

We won't know for sure. Maybe a little clumsiness in her part.
