Maybe the curve() means Yuri will succeed in modifying fate.

Boring episode was boring.

I'm pretty sure they revealed something important about the plot, but since I couldn't care less about Masako I didn't pay much attention.

Crazy episode about Natsume backstory. Would be as harsh as Kazy-kun but certainly tension dropped a few levels compared to last week. In part because I too don't care that much about Masako and the whole Natsume family and because in the end her story isn't that interesting ^^'

Spoiler for Episode 16 The man who doesn't die:


But if the second part of the episode was a bit of a let down, the PoC scene this week completely cracked me up
Spoiler for Pervy of the Crystal:

Well, Ikuhara is subverting the typical negative connotations of these term here.

When Ringo was stalking Tabuki, she never used that term to describe herself, but others called her that way and it was symbolic of her unhealthy obsession. Now, no one would call her that way, but she herself use that term to indicate her resolve of no giving up on Shouma. It's not that she's obsessed, but she needs to make Shouma understand that she isn't like those people who abandoned him and his family because of their past.

The positive message comes across pretty strongly because she's using that term.

For you maybe. The problem is that Shouma isn't even close to understand how Ringo feels about him. If she could just spill the beans and those two relation move, that would be a good thing. Using metaphors isn't going to help and this anime has, in my opinion, much more interesting fields to cover than Shou and Ringo teen romance.

Well I admit I am definitely biased in their favor but I think Shouma & Ringo are in many ways the heart of the series. I love all their scenes together even the not so happy ones. And yes in some ways it's just a teen romance but that normalcy within the craziness is actually what I love so much because they seem real to me.

Spoiler:



Anyways as for the rest of the episode I really liked it. I am interested in all the characters so getting to know more about Masako was a good thing for me as she was largely a big mystery before this point.

Thought that too, because of that scene. But Kanba really does have Kenzan eyes so I don't know...

What really bothers me if what is a kid like him is doing there at night. It's supposed to be a private ground right? Was he invited? By the grandfather? For what exactly? I'm getting terribly weird and horrible thoughts rising those questions . Hopefully we get a clear (and safe) answer soon...

I may not have signed for the good serie then. Crap.
Also Shouma doesn't reject her anymore but he sorta tries to, pulling his "our families shouldn't interact. Fate is against us blablabla----" speech. After what happened last week, him running to "save" her, I thought it was a let down. He is a bit too emo for me. I usually like this kind of male character but too much is too much. Man up, boya!

Well don't worry I am sure there will be plenty more to the series for you to enjoy as well.

Okay thanks for clearing that up as I would have no idea without subs. Well I didn't think Shouma would get over his issues that easily. But if he is not outright rejecting her like that before I see that as at least a minor step.

But as for the running to save her scene well think of it this way when it counts at least Shouma will try to do something about it hence he is drawn to Ringo whether he thinks he should be or not.

Although about fate being against them I am nervous what Ringo's mom would say when she finds out.

Boring episode indeed, the only thing this episode proved is that Satonishi is pathetically untrustworthy, heck he might even be responsible for most of the deaths in the series and is trying to cover it up.

He's the only superhuman in this series without some kind of backbreaking disadvantage.

Grandfather's repeated death and suprisingly sexy maid were hilarious this episode, but the thing with Mario and the blowfish was just too weird to be coherent. Looking forward to next week anyway.

With each iteration - I felt the psychotic nature of the episode. And it was nuts.
