Yozora keeps dropping lower and lower in the respectability pole. I guess that is why the animators are shipping Sena so much. At the very least, Sena is pure with her actions and not mean spirited. She does try very hard.

Yozora, on the other hand, is just a walking ball of malice and jealousy. I'm not sure where they are trying to take with her character. I keep hoping for improvement with her character, but in the end, they never deliver.

...What? Sena is pure? Try very hard? At what? Did you miss out every single scene with her being an arrogant brat? But I guess it's okay because she cries so we have to be mindful of her feelings.

That's it??
They just go on with the fact that Yozora and Kodaka is childhood friend?
They dont even enquire why Kodaka is shouting Yozora name?
Haiz...


But that dere-dere Yozora is just too much. Oh silly Yozora, why dont you just say that you want to go sight seeing with Kodaka on school festival.

You think Yozora is the one trying to be superior? Sena is the one with a superiority complex, that's always been her personality flaw. (Well at least until her creepy lolicon tendencies surfaced.) Someone needs to be there to knock her off her high horse to bring her back down to earth and Yozora's doing just that.

How can you not respect Yozora? She's doing the other members some good through her pranks and teasing. Yozora could stand to be just a bit more open-minded though, that's her personality flaw.

Well...

1. Animation do look off...
2. Half of Vol. 6 already. Next episode = The other half?
3. Yukimura's F-bomb makes me laugh hard...
4. And Rika's "tsundere" maid is 150% tsun -50% dere. I laughed really hard during that part, though.
5. And of course, Yozora being Yozora. Oh well, Yozora-Niku end would free up Rika being taken by Kodaka (I wish...)

Yozora's still annoying and Sena's still dumb as a brick.
Pretty boring episode, I'd say.

Yay for Yukimura's unexpected, and unbelievably cute, f-bomb.

I predict someone gonna make a GIF on the flashback where Sena was running in the school fest...^^;;

And why didn`t Kodaka peek when Rika indirectly gave him the permission when she didn`t ask him to go out of the club room while she's changing? What a waste....

LOL, calm down
He's just another diehard sena's fans, his statement of sena's being pure is enough proof of that
nothing wrong with that, just matter of preference
and Sena's fans hate towards Yozora is probably because Sena's always bullied and reduced to the very low by Yozora and probably because no matter how hard sena tries, the story will most likely end with either open ending or Yozora ending

I can't respect her because honestly I feel she takes things way too far. All she ever does is bully Sena. And no, I'm not a Sena "fanboy", I think she's annoying as hell.
Yozora could be a fun character if she tried doing something else other than bullying, but those moments are too few.

You clearly did not get the fact that Rika was intentionally going overboard because Kodaka was being a complete insensitive buffoon.

And Sena was perfect. At pulling off the stereotypical, ridiculous, over-the-top otaku-fantasy moe-maid service act. That's why no one was praising her at the end.

I agree. Sena merely proclaims that she's #1 in the universe. She doesn't go around really putting other people down or making their lives miserable. Yozora's "bullying" are simple pranks. Just tricks most people would either see through, ignore, or just ride with it. It's partly Sena's fault she's so dense that she falls for the most obvious tricks so consistently.

You wanna see real bullying? Watch Narutaru, or read onani master kurosawa for depictions of REAL bullying.


People nowadays have no skin at all.

The art wasnt on par with previous episodes, but not as bad as most of S1 so it din't bother me, but certainly the single scene of kodaka's reaction to yozora wearing the maid uniform deserves an award.

Sena tries hard to become the best at everything she does. Yes, she is conceited, but she does not intentionally put others down. She just feels superior herself, but works to become the best. Her flaws are her arrogance and naivity.

I did not say anything about Sena's superiority complex. But if you are going to put that in, Sena is an overachiever and is proud of it. She does not bully and attack people to feel superior to them. She just tries her hardest and wants praise for it. Yes, she is conceited, but no, she does not harm people in doing so.

I don't respect bullies, period. I've stood up to many bullies in my life in protection of those less fortunate, and it never ceases to amaze me how bullies tend to do so in order to cover for own weaknesses. It is the same with Yozora. Whenever anyone stands up to her or proves her wrong, she seems to always craw back into uncertainty and insecurity. She plots to put the others down in order to get closer to Kodaka, but it usually backfires against her. She is both a bully and a deceitful schemer.

Yes, it is fun to pick on someone who does that, but just to bring them down to earth and prove them wrong. It is another thing to constantly do it in spite and to intentionally hurt them. It's ok to humble someone, but it's not ok to bully them. That is the distinction that needs to be made.

No, I'm not a diehard Sena fan. I really like all the characters, including Yozora during the first season. However, this season, Yozora has been turned into a pile of hate, and I don't like it.

Given the rest of the cast, and even the setting of this show, Yozora comes off as a bully. She goes the extra mile to embarass and humiliate Sena. All. The. Time.

That's bullying. Not as serious as dragging someone to the bathroom and beating them up, or robbing their lunch money everyday, or spreading nasty rumors to all your friends, but it's a form of bullying nonetheless. Which is what keeps me from liking her character.

Sena's hopelessly dumb and needs to get down her high horse, which is why I can't stand her. Yozora, on the other hand, could be a pretty enjoyable character if she took it down a notch.

Wrong. What Yozora hates are guys that shield themselves safely and then attack others (like, via internet) or guys to need the power of the group to act (bully). Take it media translation not being able to capture all of the subtleties (that, and a little bit of people not reading attentively enough when that point was made).

It's been a while since I saw the first season, so I'm not going to argue over exactly what Yozora said and instead take your word for it. But it's still hard for me to sympathize with her dislike of bullies (online or in a group) considering how far she takes her antics with Sena.
