It's like every 5 mins... Junichi is thinking about Kaoru being naked or erotic... LOL

Why is Junichi so perverted?.... make it feel like he's only going after the girls for their bodies... >_<

In this episode, it was merely pocket change.
On hindsight yeah they probably should let certain things go, but you know how these things are more 'in the heat of the moment' and you wouldn't realize your mistakes and how insignificant those things are until later.

He's an opportunist.

He's this weird mix of pervert and polite.

So its safe to assume that something happened.

Sheesh this is just a show. There is no need to get serious.
I'm serious with everything. It's just that I'm very tired of that misinterpretation translation that everyone seems to hold up as canon. Most who have seen the scene wouldn't go thinking "oh, they've had sex!", yet that one for some reason has spread around a lot.

Also, the game is set in the early 1990's, which is not exactly the era when premarital sex was as common as it is now. It's starting from the late 1990's that having experience in middle/high school became a near norm.

Basically, saying they would have sex is just ignoring the historical background, the premise of the game, AND forcing one's bias onto the scenario, never mind ignoring the characters' personalities.

At the risk of derailing this thread, I'd like to address this comment.

Knowing the actual history and reality behind something is good, and I actually support full knowledge of as much as possible before making an opinion on anything (for all parties applicable). On that note, you also have to be able to understand arguments in their most basic forms. Which is that people won't care/don't realize that there WAS an original source to begin with. Therefore, what they see becomes the original source. They don't want to consider personalities etc, they just watch what they watch, enjoy it, and accept it at face value.

Also, in the same vein I'm more willing to agree with grandchaos and say that to a casual viewer in today's society, I'd be more inclined to believe that indeed Haruka and Junichi had sex that night. Heck, for all we know that's what the writers of the show had intended, even with knowledge of the original content. After all, it was instantly followed up with them being married (a scenario where sex was yesterday's news).

Am I the only one to think Morishima's arc will be about her relationship to Miya?
I mean, that is left hanging still....

Must say as with everyone else it was quite a disappointing end to Kaoru's arc after the episode before.

Will see how Sae's arc starts off otherwise might have to skip it again like in the first season.

Well ... I wasn't overly disappointed, but I thought they could have done better by Kaoru.

It almost feels as if they studio decided to take a break somehow on this ep. :\

A pity.

I would give ep 8 a 6/10 vote.

Not terrible ... but it could have been a lot better, esp with what they showed they could potentially do in ep 7.

Best thing about this episode by far was once again Umehara being a total boss.

He's such an amazing character. :P

I watched the two episodes in a row and I literally fell asleep during the second episode, I'm not kidding. I'm starting to believe that overall the 2 eps per girl format isn't working out so great with me.

The Ajatsuji part was good, the Rihoko one managed to add a proper conclusion which was decent but then again it's just Rihoko, who many people stopped caring about after the initial 6 eps. The other two... not so much, it just feels like nothing's happening, and I'm not refering to them keeping the drama level very low - I'm ok with that.

Flower, some time ago, was probably right: my expectations for this miniseries were probably a bit too high. Well, they aren't anymore. Let's see if that helps me enjoy the upcoming episodes more.

I find it funny that Junichi can't get enough of Kaoru's body because he still wants to see through her see-through wet clothes when he saw her butt naked in the hot springs

Cyz, seeing a girl's naked body is like eating an apple.

Once a day, every day.

Ahahaha, that's true. Seems like Junichi is just following and satisfying his "appetite" to such "apple."
