Maybe I said this before, but I'm feeling increasingly sorry for Habara. No matter what she does, she keeps getting confronted with her dark past, one she would rather just forget about at all cost. Of course, Yanagin isn't making it any better by bringing it up every time.

I figured the chase scene was for something else than HIdenori thought, but I'm sure I'd react the same way if a girl started chasing me like that all of a sudden. I knew something was up when he wasn't wearing a jacket. Little did I know he lend it to Literary Girl Yassan.

And poor Tadakuni, we hardly knew ya. It says something when your best scene in the entire show is the one where you choke on some mochi and need your younger sister to punch it out. Even Akarin had more screentime in YuruYuri than you.

And yes, the pain of slipping on a frozen puddle. How I ever managed to survive some of those (quite literally, backbreaking) falls is still a miracle.

Er...what exactly was Toshiyuki trying to pull there at the end? Did he fuck it up on purpose because his conscience kicked in at the last moment or was he just stupid?

The Bungaku Shoujo chase was definitely the funniest.

This episode reminds me my first (painful) experience with Mochi soup: Didn't got it stuck in my throat, but the sticky texture made me really uncomfortable when swallowing. And there goes the host explaining me that each year, there always are cases where eldery people choke to death due to these... Sometimes, I wonder why they even try eating these...
But yeah, they really aren't joking with these warning: that kind of Mochi are death trap

Anyway, another excellent episode. I can't help but be amused of these "mundane" situations brought in this fashion: managed to pull "I know that feel!" moments a lot, yet turned them so they deal a good laugh each time (toilet, slipping on ice, bike, stupid makeshift game while bored, going to school during a -very- obvious commemorative day).

And I really wonder what kind of move Karasawa would ask to Habara should he decide to forgive her

Yeah, I've one-up that too- I also check if it flushes properly first

It's weird it's like all the pairings in this series are kinda tragic and doomed to fail for some reason but they just manage to hang on in there
Nah Hidenori is the type of guy that you must force your way into, otherwise you'll end up as a cousin

You know ... I have had a similar experience as a few others have mentioned with this series. For me it began to be somehow "recycled" around ep 7. It just is not somehow as funny as it was when it began....

I have even thought that it may be partly b/c of the 8 preview eps that were released before the series aired might have "blunted" the type of humor offered a little too early somehow. I am still not sure though.

Whatever the reason I have become somehow "sated" with the style and materiel being presented ... it is similar material, but I am not finding it anywhere near as funny anymore. Go figure.

I will watch it to the end, but in some ways this is the first time something like this has happened to me with a series. That in of itself is kind of a "new" experience for me....

Well, I just wanted to raise this issue in the middle of last week; I just couldn't find an excuse to discuss that kind of topic (esp given discussing Ep 6 content last week )

The way Takahiro worded in Ep 6 pretty much implied Habara is pretty much socially ruined in Sanada; and it's easy to guess how difficult she's living through a world where every boy avoids him like plague. It's quite... difficult for her to stay sane in the midst of this (being reminded of her past every day!), yet she did it and did it pretty well.

This made me wonder if she bullied boys and only boys? Takahiro specifically mentioned all high school boys around Sanada still trembled in the sight of her. If I'm reading it right, it implies Archdemon had no female victims--and by extension girls in general don't alienate her as much as boys, which may be a slightly better situation (which is not good at all nonetheless).

I wonder what would become of her if she studied in Sanada East?

EDIT

Good said Chaos2Frozen. He seems to be the kind of person who's quite shy towards people outside his social circle--but entering his social circle, though, is not difficult either.

That said, if what character sketches said about Lit Girl is correct, then she's also that kind of person, which made things more difficult...

I don't think Hidenori is shy, he's just extremely stubborn with a hint of just-dont-get-it

Yep, with Hidenori trouble seems to just find him, especially from the opposite sex.

Well, at least this time what she's speaking was not as pretentious

Ahhh poor tadakuni, i feel like he's the worst treated main character of any anime. So bad that the only line he had this episode was him choking on mochi.

Lit Girl pretty much stole this episode, never cease to amuse me between her and Hidenori.

and

as usual, Karasawa being the man of the show in the funky girl story. For those curious about Kinniku Buster, it's a reference to an old manga that featured a wrestler and that's one of it's technique.

I'm one of those people who is a strong believer of karma. Notes taken from this episode, don't take too long in the toilet even if one is having a session of exploding diarrhea. As always keep in mind that the other guy or gal is waiting outside, holding it in, where every ticking seconds are felt with urgency. Take too long, and they are placing a curse on you.

After the poop-portion, the following look very suspicious:



Very good to see the show was back to being its usual self. Preview had me cracked up just as much:



I live in the US where a good portion of our total population is considered obese. I've seen much worse. It still doesn't take away the funny!

At least Tadakuni and Yoshitake have sister to help them spitted out their mochi, wonder who's the one helping Hidenori?

I love Mitsuo skit the best. Though Hidenori and Yassan's "give me back my jacket" and riding bicycle skit were also great
Kenichi Suzumura's voice when he's saying "The mochi is in my throat" was hilarious XD

Oh sure we have. In fact I've been on it more than once since I have weak stomach, thus I made a promise for myself not to laugh at toilet skit like this since I know it's very very hard situation

The Bungaku Shoujo chase was definitely the funniest.
My take on it is that Karasawa was just joking around with them in his own way. But that scene making no sense was the joke I think. And he acted as the landing pad for Yanagin because he doesn't hurt girls.
Spoiler for in the manga:


Also, that Mitsuo skit about his luck was the funniest.

As to who saved Hidenori, he has a sibling too you know. Imo it was just cut off because bromance isn't as fun as sister abuse.

Only 2 episodes left ;_;

The funny thing about wrestling moves is that sometimes they're harder on the ones doing them than on the ones receiving them

I guess Karasawa is finding that out the hard way.

He had no intentions of hurting them as far as I can tell. He does it on Ikushima right after too so he wasn't finding it out the hard way etc.

And while the kids fought the archdemon to avenge him, he got all his scars because he was protecting other girls from her in the first place. In short, he's manly as heck. Perhaps too manly.
