I enjoyed episode 10 even though the animation looked awful.

Animation wasn't too great this week, but it did the job. Himari hinting at bro-con fetish was interesting, and I liked the dynamic between the four characters (the siblings and Ringo).

Overall though, not much new compared to last episode. Mario still looks like a girl imo, and we get some more plot breadcrumbs.

More thoughts later.

You know, I actually thought that Himari was asking Kanba for advice for what she should make for another guy (thinking about her promised groom again?) and got sad when she realized that the boy would hate everything she would make (according to Kanba anyway).

Actually, we don't know if what she's knitting is for him. She might just wanted his opinion on what kinda gift a guy likes to receive from a girl. The scene is ambiguous enough to allow for various interpretations. And with the inclusion of Mario in the same episode... well, you gotta wonder....

Evil Penguin FTW! And oh man, Ringo might eventually get a bit too attached to Shouma. XD

Congratulations to MPD for the long-overdue subforum! Episode 10 blog:

I definitely got the sense that Himari was knitting that scarf either for Shouma or her "fated one", though I don't doubt siscon Kanba fantasized it was for him. Lots of shading and interpretation here - if it was for Shouma, is that a brocon hint? Just a get-well scarf?

Mario does look like a girl, and the seiyuu has never played a male. That "Mario-san" was interesting. What does that imply, exactly? You wouldn't expect a girl to call a younger sibling of either gender that, would you? Perhaps Mario-san is an older sibling?

Mario does indeed look like a girl. That being said, I can't think of any girls or women named "Mario". And it's actually not that uncommon of a name in the more french-speaking parts of Canada.

I suppose Masako, being as theatrical as she is, might simply have chosen the name just because she liked the connotations...

But it's official he's a guy.

Maybe he's older. After all, I doubt you keep growing after you die, even if you have a hat that let you keep walking around. And we don't know when he died, so anything is possible.

Sounded more like "Mario-sama" to me.

It's written in katakana, too... despite their shared surname, I doubt Mario and Masako are actually related.

Of course, in Lily Hoshino designs all little boys look like little girls.

Is it 100% officially confirmed Mario is a guy?

Episode 10 was decent but after episode 9 if certainly was a bit of a letdown. It still has some good moments though. Penguins were funny as always. Loved when #2 swallowed the thermometer then you see him drooling the mercury out. Kanba and Natsume have a long past and it seemed to be that Sho knew who she was too. I wonder what their actual connection is.

One part that interested me was the mention of Ariadne's thread. Basically an Ariadne's thread is a record of steps you take in order to solve a problem or try to so you can basically go back and do it over again to find other possible solutions to a problem. Is that was Ringo's diary was, a record of Momoka's attempts to accomplish something but someone backtracked because she ended up failing? Did they just decided to start over with a different set of people and methods but need the diary in order to figure out what will and won't work? If that's the case then it almost all centered around Tabuki then since the entire diary is about him.

From the preview I don't think Ringo is going to be giving on Tabuki even without the diary so it should get interesting there. I starting to think Yuri is also involved heavily and just acting. We'll probably see them go after either other but as long as we have other character also involved I'm fine with that. Kanba needs to be taking a more active role now and go after Natsume. Hopefully the Penguin Queen will have some other information to help them along too.

All i really have to say right now is that im starting to warm up to Ringo's character a lot more than i did early on. As for episode 10, it was quite good. Can't get enough of those penguins either doing their thing.lol. This show has really turned into a must watch for me.

To me the only thing I got from that was that it's a she.

I'd hate to be a girl named Mario.

Awful? I'll use the word "appropriate" to indicate how psychotic it was; add in the music recognized in Civ V - in a scratchy, hard to hear form. Oh the scorn of a woman... don't mess with that.

Oh, I have deep, deep, deep suspicions concerning Tabuki and Yuri. In a show like this, I just assume no one is what they seem. And, in Yuri's case, we've already seen how she can put up an act when she's had her private "conversations" with Ringo. Besides, Tabuki has glasses, and Japanese men who wear glasses tend to always be hiding something if the last 89987972 anime shows are anything to go by, and Yuri is this gorgeous woman, and we all know a gorgeous woman has to end up being an antagonist of some sort in an industry where it's the teenagers who are the protagonists. Right?

Just finished watching episode #10, it seem Ringo might turn a new leaf, after what happen in episode #8 with the incident with Shouma. I hope Ringo keeps her crazy antics and focus them on Shouma instead of that old nerdy teacher!
