I actually laughed at all of the skits this episode even Motoharu's (his hair LOL), but the one with the Literature Girl and the reactions from Hidenori were hilarious. Need some more Tadakuni -__-, poor Karasawa and his scar D: but the girls' reaction was LOL.

Hidenori's faces = WIN.

And I actually feel sorry for Habara. Clearly she learned her lesson already (only the two other girls were 'bullying' Karasawa), and she still feels guilty over the incident.

At least Literature Girl is back, as IMO it's when she shows up (and "Kyon" starts going on with his long internal dialogue) is what got me hooked in this show in the first place.
I like how 'Kyon' has a stalker now. She's just waiting and hiding for him to show up to sneak up behind him.

My sisters are 6 and 8 years older and yes, that was brutal. I honestly didn't find that chapter all that funny - sadistic humor without irony or justice doesn't usually work for me.

Thinking about Hidenori's backstory again, I think I get some clue he was kept picked on back at the time. Even now he's still seen as oddball--Ep 3 had Motoharu told Karasawa "Hidenori said something strange again." (Emphasis added) I bet he's even odder in elementary; or just went the path of a far more normal Switch.

Just a hunch here and not to be taken seriously.

Now all this talk about boys/girls being portrayed realistically has got me thinking why I really ADORE the childhood friend subtrope...

Because in reality, vast majority (or at least in my experiences and those of I know) of boy/girl relationships early on in life results either in either not wanting to have anything to do with one another, or things gets really messy and ugly like Karasawa.

Since I know the reality of the situation would be not at all unlike what Karasawa has suffered (albeit maybe less extreme), when I see the opposite (the idealized male/female duo thats been good friends since they are young), I just can't help but be giddy at the though of pairing the two together BECAUSE of how rare it is in real life.

Is that an important reference or something? I didn't get that part.
It's a rip on K-On, the whole light music girl band thingy, plus the K-On movie is about them going to London

Hey, if they're probably not going to make any money, might as well use this chance to flip off everybody else

Caught up on this series... and this series is hilarious. Not sure about AS but elewhere its it's being called "Nichibros" (think it started with blogsuki or something) but w/e, this is much more funnier than Nichijou ever was. I like the whole "teenage boys doing teenage boy things" style that this show is trying to present, and for once an all male cast isn't catering towards fujioshi. The skits are largely great, the punch lines are largely great. Every episode has had me actually laugh out loud in real life at least once, which is rare. Rarely do I like "pure Japanese comedy", but this has some kinda quality/charm to it which I can't exactly describe. For starter's it isn't too slapstick centric, nor is it fanservice driven and it's definitely not moe pandering (I don't see much moe in this yet) Actually I can... I actually went to an all-boys school so I can relate to how "pent up" such teenage boys can get which leads them to do stupid shit.

8/10 for the series so far after 5 eps. Keep it up.

Yeah, it is also called Nichibros in the IRC channel I go to. It's to differenciate from Nichijou AND Kimi to Boku, to show how Danshi Koukousei does portray that male friendship, undirtied by the yaoi goggles of fujoshis. Guys acting guyly, making us remember what it meant to be teenage guys.

Eps 5 is great. I don't laugh as hard as I had from eps 1 (still the best one for me), but I laugh from almost all of skits.

Even from the get-go where it revealed the fourth person was the editor not the author itself I was already laughing XD
I'm hoping the dubbing part will make a comeback on later episode.

Btw Yoshitake sounds more manly on his childhood. Maybe it's the mask

Initially I though he was the soccer guy in the OP due to the hair color. Who figured out it was Yoshitake from the start?

I didn't find that segment funny either, and I am an older sister with an otouto. I would never allow my friends to humiliate him like that, so that part made my heart ache for Motoharu Poor guy wanted to escape them only to find out they were staying over, what a nightmare, lol.

When that segment started I was like, this is oddly dramatic for this type of series... yes Hidenori is an oddball with a unique but fun sense of humor, maybe it wasn't appreciated in elementary school?
I instantly knew the rubberband superhero was Yoshitake just from his hairstyle. I wonder if Yoshitake knew all along that it was Hidenori that he saved?

I usually don't watch Nichibro while thinking, but after the revelation I rewind the flashback scene to see which part of the masked kid that resemble Yoshitake, and yes the hairstyle is the same like Yoshitake's now ^^


I felt sorry for Tadakuni, he's supposed to be the main character of the series isn't he? But his screen time since the previous episode was so short compared to Hidenori, and even Karasawa on this episode

It actually fits his character bio, which says that he doesn't have much of a presence despite being a main character.

For some reason this was a great consolation to read.

Well, he's now blond. And completely devoid of that hair colour's connotations in Japan.

God I love this series!

It's just so hilarious, so funny I make it a point not to be eating or drinking while watching now.

I loved the Savior segement, the guys taking hits and going down so the Mister Savior wouldn't be embarrassed
Karasawa even falls down into a cool pose


And it was all for naught since it involves the most adorable and most hoplessly airheaded Ringo-chan~

Then there was "NoooOOoOOoOOO....NooooOOooOO!"
Good to see Literature Girl again, it's rather cute and scary when she looks up

The Highschool Girls are funky segement was funny as hell, Karasawa trolled them brilliantly!
Seems to me Karasawa is somewhat a hit with the girls, albeit probably not in the way he'd hope/like
Totally did not expect him to be hiding something a like a scar under his cap but it makes sense why he's wearing it all the time now.
I'm with DragoonKain3 here, now I see the relationship he has with the girls and in particular Habara, I gotta go with the childhood friend route there

Funny how the VA for the girls are the same ones for the boy bullys
