Hime is cuter than I thought. I think the angel story is a foreshadow of Masuzu's sister joining the fray. Each girl was eerily similar to the girls in the story.

Why do these types of shows become instantly worse when they introduce auxiliary cast members? It's just like Haganai...

This cannot be called the premise. This is after all a harem love comedy series (it's not just about Masuzu and Eita), not a serious love comedy series like Sakurasou or Toradora, so it's a given that any watcher can guess that Masuzu will fall in love with Eita. The only question is 'when'? The theme is 'Shuraba', which is a definite 'result' whenever a harem is involved. The accompanying theme is 'Ji-En-Otsu' (faking, charade, play-acting, lies). And Masuzu and Eita's fake relationship sets up the dynamics for everything.

As to having them acting a little 'dere' towards each other, it is a reasonable behavior considering that they are adolescents who just experienced their first encounters of 'intimacy'. They are moments of 'body-over-mind' at that kind of age. It doesn't mean that their beliefs about love have been completely overturned.

Of course, I know that they would eventually fall in love, I was just under the impression that this whole strong dislike (or just lack of interest) for love which was presented so prominently in the first episode as a strong point in their character would be a key focus and something that they both have to work on overcoming. But it just seems like they have 'forgotten' about it soon after that first episode.

Heck, I'm okay if it's just a one arc thing instead of an overarching plot point, except the first arc was more on the childhood friend. Even the chuunibyou-ism is more prominent

Okay, maybe it's just me and I'm just taking the whole 'Want nothing to do with love' too seriously.

That being said though... Six episodes in and Eita seems to have adopted the 'Araragi Koyomi' School of Resolution to his approach- Victory through getting ass-whooped

By the way, unless the phrase 「てめえの血、何色だ?」 is some kind of Japanese idiom, I believe this was a HnK reference.

Spoiler for HnK reference:

Spoiler for HnK reference:
It's an idiom originated (or made popular, not sure) from HnK. Lit, it is "what color is your blood?", translates to "are you even human!?" to indicate some kind of anger or disgust towards someone who commit something deemed atrocious.

The idiom is that while it is obvious that humans have red blood, that someone committed something that's deemed so inhumane so that one doubts if he/she indeed have red blood.

Any reasons you think they compressed Volume 2 to 2 episodes but strecthed Volume 1 to 4 episodes? So far I really can't think of any reasons considering Volume 2 is one of the more important volumes with lots of critical development.

Ah, Ai the discipline comitee girl
The "discipline" on the right goes without saying. The "silk" on the lower left... is she wearing silk panties or somesuch? Still waters run deep
The "ore" on the upper left though (very crude, male form of "I"), that doesn't seem to fit in, as it's mostly used by delinquents and such. But who knows, perhaps she has a hidden, naughty side?
That would also explain the silk panties.

She is obviously saying "ore shura" (aka the name of the show).

Anyone know what Oonoji Miko and Kisaragi Megumi refer to?
I can guess the Ayanami Asuka, Tsukino Rei, and Daigouji Sakura, but cant find any reference to the last two names on Eita's "angel".

I don't know about Masuzu not wearing any panties, but I did saw a glance on the OP song that she not waering any. Is this story based?
