I keep going back to watch those last few minutes of the episode, and I can't say enough how good they are. Such a poignant point in the story. It's one of the very rare instances where a character returns to an "undesirable" status quo that I truly enjoy (compare to any series -usually harem- where it's like a giant "reset" button was pushed in the last ep).

well ı think it was Yui fault not saying anything about dog to Hachiman. he may even thought he managed to get a friend but now he thinks it is because he saved the dog that Yui got close to him. she should have told him when they first met. it is easy to understand Hachiman's feeling.

So I went back and watched a couple episodes I skipped. Yukino's sharp tongue reminds me a bit of Senjougahara. Yui provides a nice contrast to Hikki and Yukino.

I think I'll have to follow this just for Yukino's sharp tongue and Hikki's...Hikkiness.

Yeah, though easy to understand Yui as well. Looking at where she was at the first episode it's easy to see that she couldn't easily just step up and say everything. Then after she started to gain confidence was already at the point of being too late to say it without it turning out like this. Sometimes the timing doesn't work out perfectly.

Though now have to see where this is going to go.

Watch as Totsuka ends up being the only character the anime staff make such a birthday cake for, just like how there'll only be an official #totsukawaii tag for him and no #yukinokawaii or #yuikawaii tag for the girls.

Hachiman, give up. You know Totsukawaii is the one for you. Even your voice actor is smitten by him.

Feels kinda rushed somewhat..
Spoiler:

All in all, it's still not as powerful as the last episode and somehow a bit anti-climatic..?

I think it's rather fitting to be anti-climactic. I mean, it's not like anything actually happened in the previous episode. Yukino's moral at the end there is pretty much what I expected from the title.

A few thoughts on ep 5:

I feel bad for Yui. Judging from imoutos initial reaction when nearly spilling the beans when Yui introduced herself to her, odds are she was asked to keep quiet or she already knew better.

You cant blame Yui for keeping quiet either. Actually, its more of the MCs fault. The audience needs to remember that Hachimon has a very narrow and corrupted mindset. Looking at his monologue differently you can say he pushed Yui away to avoid the possibility of hurting himself because of his own weakness, which has nothing to do with Yui.

Anyway, if Yui had told him from the start, Hachiman wouldve kept himself emotionally guarded the entire time and wouldve been apprehensive toward any sustained interaction with her.

Curious as to where it goes from here. A quick glance at the novel covers and you figure she stays a MC, so its nnot a full "reset".

Also, yea, Im big on Yui, because im a sucker for "nice girls". i understand why Hachiman hates them though. It takes you having to spend time in the "friend zone" without any guarantees of ever exitting it. And most of the time, you dont.

Can't argue with that, but I also think Yui need to be more honest about her feelings to make Hachiman knows what she really thinks about him. It's a shame that she can't properly explain about what she really feels, but it's to be expected when she heard those mean words of him. She can't probably think clearly because she's too emotional..
