Takako, Satsuki, Ohana and Ko will be all returning to Kissuiso together for the festival. I'm betting on it!

Satsuki's porn line with Ko was great. Ohana better watch out, her mom might snatch him up.

Episode went by fast, which I guess is a good thing.

Looking forward to episode 24 when Ko grabs Ohana and drags her to a love hotel, and the episode ends Yosuga no Sora style.

I really enjoy this episode, especially the interaction between Satsuki and Ko. The comparison of how beautiful she is his friends' mothers was hilarious and of course the porn watching part as well.

Ohana/Ko cliffhanger on the bridge was fated to happen, the street lights turning on after that moment was sweeter. Some would say the meeting was force, but Ko has just left Satsuki and Ohana was looking for her mother, so its not a force coincidences at all.

Takako actually found the director that cheated the Inn out of its money, now can she save the Inn financially? It seem so easily solves

The preview for episode 24, w/ Sui lying on the bed like she dying, let hope this is not true and its more trolling like they did w/ the preview for this episode...

I really hate you, HanaIro, for abusing me the way you have with your indifference, stupidity and laziness, and then making me give you a damn 10/10.

I think Kou had a blush on the entire time he was with her, so yeah. I had a major Mrs. Robinson feeling during that whole sequence. As for Kou checking out the other Moms, well - he's 16. It goes without saying.

This ep had the miraculous effect of transporting me right back into the mindset of 10-11, during Ohana's last Tokyo trip, which was the dramatic highlight of the series. I honestly can't recall another series that had the maddening ability to turn the quality on and off like a switch the way this one does. Oh, that it had been once cour!

I've said all along that I simply wanted a resolution on the KoHana storyline, and that's still true. But now that we're this close, I really want to see them end up together. And as for Satsuki, I've done a complete 180 with her. I said before that Minchi was the only one in this cast willing to call BS (which needs doing a lot) but I forget Satsuki - the difference is that she uses her sharp tongue as a scalpel while Minchi uses hers as a sledgehammer. She's smart, she's damn funny, she's morally ambiguous, and she's critical to all of the most compelling conflicts driving the plot.

Episode written and storyboarded by Nishimura Junji, director of Simoun, true tears, etc.

Of course I loved the ep, for many things but especially for Ohana and Kou heading back together. Kou is so limp, but I was still thrilled.

I did feel their meeting was too pat and too coincidental, though I guess we knew that Ohana would be headed for her mom's office. So was Satsuki's meeting with Kou, though I guess she could have planned it all. Those seeming coincidences aside, however, the ep was packed with feeling, intention, and incident.

I was just about to post that Nishimura had written this ep, which really surprised me. Loved his work with True Tears of course, but his eps of this show have not been among my favorites by a wide stretch.

Simoun is my favorite anime series. And I liked true tears a lot. But he also did such forgettable shows as CODE-E and Nurarihyon no Mago.

I hope Enzo will forgive me for lol'ing so hard at him for so long when I was watching this episode! As I was watching it (great ep btw) I was thinking "He's going to love this ep and is going to be wroth that it is so good!"

And I was correct, it seems.

*sigh* ... I still dislike Satsuki. Period. Some of the reasons were already said by me in previous threads and re-phrased by other posters in this thread. Hmph.

Takako's judo throw made my jaw drop btw ... TOTALLY was not expecting that.

But yeah - another great ep. I vote 8/10 on it.

Hmm, as a little bit of an aside ... regarding the writing of Nishimura, I liked True Tears, but Simoun for me kinda boring (although I could appreciate the "world-building" therein). Haven't seen CODE-E or Nurarihyon no Mago, so can't say anything about them....

I would argue that this episode's success would not have been possible without those episodes people like to rile on.

interesting ep. it lost some of its charm that previous eps had, but made up for it in other ways. i guess we're really coming down to the end now, so it'll be interesting to see how they finish it off.

The episode was well paced, and discussed Kou and Ohana's feelings well enough. The funny moments were actually funny, and I truly did like the Ride of the Valkyries playing when Takako was owning someone.

Man, Satsuki would be such a cool person to know, if she wasn't such an awful mom. Her way of trolling people is most excellent. On the other hand, her apathy might just be hiding other issues.

Also, I do like having Ohana call people balut under her breath. Yea, clearly being around those idiots has caused me to crack.

Everything was perfectly timed, and Ohana, the hot blooded but occasionaly indecisive loud mouth finally speaks the truth in that video, or something... And somehow they ended up meeting on the bridge.

This episode was a very strong combination of comedy and drama and finally could I actually bring myself into their world. The strong use of sound and utterly beautiful PA works style background (Obviously, the episode was in the city because they wanted to draw those beautiful cityscapes)

It wasn't perfect I guess. Kou's outfit was kinda lol, and his talk about coffee was too emo for me to stand. But, there was actually no stupid Jinomaru moment; in fact he was cleanly put in his place so that's already a +1, plus nobody was retarded this episode, so that's already enough to make it a top 5 HSI episode.

10/10

When Ko told Satsuki that he had a coworker take his place, I felt really bad for Namiko...

Hey Higarashi, can you take my shift? I'm just going out with the mom of the girl I like.

Well, 23 is interesting indeed. The scene where Takako beat the hell out from the producer is one of the best here. Also the last scene on the bridge. Nice lighting there!

Preview - What happened to okami? Hope she's fine.

Kou doesn't like bland coffee? Guy should just cut off his family jewels. Worthless scum bag.

If he doesn't like that he probably never had them to begin with

Got me too,you know how I pride myself on being able to guess the writer of each episodes and I was sure that was Okada all the way,still I guess it makes sense since he handled the whole movie arc and that came back in this episode.

I'm still expecting some major trolling even if there's foreshadowing of a OhanaxKou ending ("all a man can do is wait")

Still more romance than I was really expecting,but it's not so bad and I havn't even bothered looking at the preview

And no,I really don't mind "coincidences" like we saw at the end,they can work well,Adachi has made a career out of them.
