This was a down episode, for me. The naming was enjoyable. The editor was yawn, and the huntress felt just cliched -- although KitaEri's voice was good. Have we entered the doldrums? Will we sail out of them soon?

Not sure whether if the President got her way, would it be a bad end for Akito, or a good end?

As I guessed, apparently Arashi DOES get around....LIKE THAT. I can sort of understand where Akito is coming from, and why he resists her like he does. Don't get me wrong, she's fine as hell, but even as a harem lover, I like the "chase" to mean something for the girl romantically/emotionally (Erica from Campione for example). But here, its pretty obvious that Arashi is just a hoe and wants some penis. Yeah, not really my cup of tea, especially since she was on some raper psycho level sh%t. Though I do admit its an interesting take on the harem genre, adding a girl who just wants to get physical and not the typical "I love you, want you to be your wife and bare your children" type of deal.

The editor woman was pretty hot, but she really does bring up good points on Akito. Its's just WAAAAYYYY to convenient that the fictional story is so similar to his real life.

Episode 05 ... well be darn. I always like Nasuhara's scene and it always entertains me. The editor is kinda .... over the top with her seduction but her worries seems possible though it didn't ended up funny and also the prez scene. They don't look great for me. I like only the scene of Nasuhara and Ginbei.

And don't forget that he was blushing happily that he has a picture of Akiko in his handbook. Who's the one really getting busted here? The editor being caught she's acting off what she read in a magazine or Akito blushing at his sister's picture?

The editor's scene was utterly hilarious. She was doing some pretty darn temping stuff but it was also obvious that she was suspicious.

I felt nothing during the Editor and President scenes -_-

Compared to Anna and Akiko whose hilarious banter brings out the good points of the show, those seduction scenes focuses on the glaring bad points of all ecchi-harem Anime- The Protagonist's inability to enjoy himself.

I wouldn't use these 2 particular scenes as examples because he had legit reasons for both.

With the editor, they are in the workplace and she's HIS editor, him being a well known writer. That probably would NOT have good results if they some how got caught by some other coworker randomly walking in. Or even worse, this somehow getting out to the public.

And with Arashi, she's just not his type of woman, so I can't fault him for that. Her interaction with him just feels so different from the others. With the other girls like Ana for example, its your typical harem hijinks. But with Arashi, he really doesn't want to have anything to do with her in that manner, going so far as trying to escape through a damn window....

It probably had something to do with Arashi going all rapist on him. That will provoke the DO NOT WANT!!! response in a majority of people.

As for the editor, he may be a healthy teenage boy but shagging your boss is not a recommended job advancement approach.

I agree with Tenchi that he had legit reasons, it's not that he can't enjoy himself, he has some common sense.

Think that if Anna wants to approach him he would still think that she's just making fun of him.

The only possible one is possibly for Gin to be the aggressor.

if Gin turn aggressive. He will probably be worried because its out of character for her. Asking "do you have a fever Gin?" then get slapped -_-

So the president is not only after Akito, but the three girls as well. It would be interesting to make her see moves on them, as she did with Akito in this episode. I'd particularly like to see how Ana would react since the roles would more or less be reversed for her. And I don't know if it's just me but Arashi reminds me of Sumeragi

The scene with the editor was really funny. Although her seduction techniques were laughably bad, I have to say they had some effect on me. Akito wasn't entirely impervious to her charm either. He was noticeably embarrassed.

A decent episode overall, but there was a serious lack of Akiko and Ana.

Good thing Akiko save his cherry just in time. But of course, it's her fault for locking the storage house!

I had a feeling something like this would happen. Someone posted this on another forum...

What I find by reading Japanese forums and western forums is that Arashi is much much less popular in Japan than in the west.
I think episode 5 probably didn't put her in a good light. Japan is pretty big on purity and stuff like that, so it's understandable why fans wouldn't find her as popular. I remember someone used Momo from TLRD as an counterexample, but with Momo its pretty clear she uses all her sexual prowess on Rito alone. And if the average fan is putting himself in Rito shoes, that's a good thing.

But here, Arashi just sees Akito as another target. Nothing really special behind it like Momo's antics. And I think the fact this is a Harem makes it worse, who would want a girl in their harem that sleeps with other guys?

That would be me, and it's not just Japan btw- I'm not sure why the west would think having a woman that has been implied to sleep around is a good thing, but for the rest of the world I'm pretty sure it's frowned upon.

Well in the first place I highly doubt the Author is the kind to think that far ahead when he created her. The title alone should be an indication that he doesn't have any grand design for the story.

I read volume 1 and I can say that the scene with prez try to rape mc is like the scen from vol 1 with a different approach by the animator. Still I prefered more Nasuhara-san scene than prez. She is just too wild and loose and I don't like her character much.

I wonder how the editor manage to talk it out of her officemate to leave them be for the time being because its unnatural for the office to be left deserted at the time Akito arrive.
