Every (anime) girl looks better without glasses, no exception.

Anyway, this episode was a lot of fun. Sena is a definite sucker for Yozora and Rika's combined prank, and her father is still as naive as ever (though I applaud him for spanking her). Also, she's infinitely more creepy than last episode, with her whole ceiling dedicated to Yozora and (seemingly) masturbating with that wig.

Also, Stella really likes shipping Kodako and Sena together, doesn't she?

Welp, this season just about managed to confirm my worst fears about the direction the story wants to go with Sena within a single episode. Watching an entire episode of my favourite character being bullied, then blamed for it, then suddenly revealing some over the top and needlessly negative attributes was definitely not a lot of fun, and my annoyance at seeing a perfectly great character slowly deteriorate before my eyes might just make me want to drop the show at this rate. Due to the presence of a certain voice actor, I'm honestly inclined to see this all the way through but this wouldn't be the first time I've given up on a show even with her in it. I'll give it a few more episodes. Hopefully it'll improve by then...

^What do you want them to do change the source material...?

As for the episode. The Kashiwazaki household is one creepy household. I'd go with Kobato's choice of not wanting to visit, too...

Because we already know Sena would be the man of the house

No, I'm hoping the source material isn't what I fear it is. The problem is with the story itself, not the adaptation.

Oh god, I can totally imagine the awkward feeling Kodaka felt when having those moments with Sena. I have to agree with him, Sena just went into the uncanny valley tier.

Mooooooooooooo.

Oh, and does anyone else have Bakemonogatari vibes with those signs all around Sena on the ED?

Don't really care about masturbating stuff you all are talking about.
Nice episode,especially when your favourite girl gets nearly all the screen time - just as you want.

One of the worst OP's I've heard. The animation at the beginning of the OP was nice.

Didn't like either the OP and ending songs, whilst the animation is quite nice. Did better (as n more true to the source) characterisation this time around. One of the fault of the first season is at the beginning it was reluctant to accept itself as a comedy (hence no background 'effect' sound in earlier episodes), until ep 5 or so. This time around a bit 'overstated' but comedy flows more naturally.

Well, is Sena and if memory doesn't fails me she wears more picky underwear on home. So I think is 3.

Its the director's/author's perverted decision.

Huh. Strange considering that I saw this as a more normal friendship then most of the bullying that Sena endures. Season 1 was pretty brutal at times. This came across more as three girlfriends getting together to do something a little crazy and silly like a ridiculous hairdo. The most gullible one is of course talked into doing it, and then the other two got a little carried away, but apologized afterwards.

I mean, when brushing her hair they were actually being nice to each other. Sena's comment about wanting to laugh it off together was revealing.

As for the negative traits, Sena has always been shown as that type of extreme person, did you forget the way she treats boys other then Kodoka?

LOL...seriously, it's half a episode (= one chapter in the LN) and people can get THIS pissed off...

On side note: Now that I think about it, S2 being better shouldn't be a surprised when the source material gets better and better...

Welcome to the world of light novel ----> anime adaptations. Sena is a great character and it's sad that her depth only goes so far in the first season. Mainly, I'd love to see the outcast aspects of her character (the rest of the cast as well, but we only see this done with Kodaka) deepened in the anime but like you said, this episode has me doubting they'll go anywhere meaningful with her.

I thought as much while I was watching, it's like they established some depth in S1 and now they're just going to run with it.

Director.
Check the novel illustrations or the narrative to clear your doubts .

I welcome the glorious return of Meat!

New OP and ED doesn't rhyme with me.

That is all.

Then , head over to the LN thread and ask your concerns. There's very little LN readers can do to address these concerns in episodic threads, because of the spoiler policy.

What I can tell you though is that the general consensus of the LN readers is that the story get's better with every Volume. If you want, you could read the translations of the Post Volume 5 Light Novels (where Episode 1 is currently at) and judge for yourself.
