Well, that was something.

They may have hinted at this before the performance too, when Yaya asked Hana why she was red.
I actually thought Hana would collapse from a fever or something. Fortunately (in the sense that the drama works better that way, not for the girls, obviously), it didn't go that way, but rather, they simply screwing up due to lack of experience and just general awkardness. Poor Naru will definetly blame it all on herself, though Please Hana, don't lash at her.

I kinda knew the second one already, though. And in hindsight, it probably should've been obvious.

I'm going for the opposite, that is, Machi lashing at them since their performance wasn't perfect, and no excuses, they just screwed up (Again, good for the drama, awful for the girls), showing she demands too much of others, since she always does her best. And as for why she hasn't demanded more of Tami before, this is the first she's been so enthusiast about something, so the scrutiny would be harder. I'm not trying to paint Machi on a negative light, that's honestly how I feel it could go, after all, we have to deal with her personal issues first, so it's not like she can just assume the role of coach and moral support inmediately.

Oh, and I definetly don't mind the drama, in fact, this was easily the most believeable example so far, but I can see why others wouldn't like it.

hmm a little late but, mine currently ;p

Naru > Yaya > Hana > Tami ; Machi (not much known yet so...)

nerve racking episode end...and just as Naru was thinking it would be OK, since she caught up from the bad start...looks like Hana is sick...

I was actually fully expecting Hannah to just keel over -- she obviously wasn't at 100% for the performance -- but for the implosion to come from Naru was a surprise. Unfortunately, given that this is Naru, angst will surely follow, though this seems to set up Machi finally stepping in next week.

You know, these girls really need a literary break, especially Naru. Seeing it was rather painful honestly given their enthusiasm beforehand. Well, there was some expectation of that given the setup with the nightmare and the general nervousness of the girls, but still...

Though unto other matters, soft and plump thighs-

I was a fool to think that everyone's problems would've been resolved by now. But it seems like Naru has a bad experience in the past, and Machi has some kinda beef with Sally. And worse of all, they fucked up. huge.

The ending made me cringe so hard. I wasn't expecting them to screw up so badly on their first performance. Naru is going to be traumatized after this. Thankfully, she has friends by her side to help her overcome this.

Well...that was a rough first outing . Though can't say I didn't expect them to have a few troubles. First performance as a group so there was bound to be some nerves creeping in there. All of them were struggling to some degree with nerves before jumping out there.

Certainly did seem like Hana was fighting something. Could have just been overly nervous for the first chance to perform yosakoi like this, but possible she was a bit under the weather. Not the type to throw away this big chance even if she wasn't feeling great.

Naru of course had the big implosion out there. I shouldn't be surprised that she was the one with some performance trauma to deal with. Though perhaps could have dropped some more hints as to it before we got to this point. In the end these things do happen. It's just that in a huge group it's easier to hide one or two bad performances, but in a group of 4 that's not going to happen.

A nice move to try and make us think the only problem would be at the very start. Though will say it seemed like overall Tami and Yaya were holding it together even as things started to fall apart. But not much one can do when Naru actually falls down.

Some good moments were in there though. Some laughs with Naru and Tami freaking out with the weight thing, Yaya needing Naru to tell her she looks cool so she can enter the building , the forgotten music, etc.

Seems like they'll combine the Machi recruitment along with dealing with the aftermath of this yosakoi trainwreck. One can kind of guess the issues that Machi has with her sister. Getting her recruited to the club her sister is advising should be fun. Good luck Tami .

The last few episodes were fun to catch up with though. Kind of liked the Naru/Hana combination on dealing with Yaya's troubles. Shows that this group has a lot of small relationships strung together. It's not just about one of the girls, but everyone has their connections.

Revisiting C3-Bu: the Line sure brings back some memories. The frightening part was the fact that Naru is approaching the point where Yura's story in C3-Bu is starting to sound too fitting for her.

Quoting a sufferer of The Line PTSD over at /a/:

Well done Naru, you've done what the rest could not, destroyed the damned performance. Do you feel like a princess yet?

No matter what happens next, don't be too hard on yourself. Even now, after all you've done, you can still go home. Lucky you.

I don't think Hana will be that mad...

On that note, I'm surprised the preview had no sign of Naru bed-ridden and in despair. After that mess up, it sounds like something she would do.

Bullshit. This is a perfect opportunity for her to learn to deal with her own flaws and insecurities. Heck, she came this far, why check out now? Just because it didn't go as planned? She needs to learn that it's okay to mess up, as long as you learn from it and come back as a stronger person.

Besides, the performance was doomed to fail even without Naru falling down. It's very clear that something is not right with Hana, as evidenced by the fact that she's been red in the face the entire time. She's probably been running a fever all through the show and the dancing made things worse. But because she didn't want to cancel the performance, she pushed herself without telling anyone. Plus, she was the one who messed up first, which caused the whole group to become out of sync, which eventually led to Naru falling down.

Also, this will probably prompt Machi to take center stage and eventually join the group when she realizes that she can use yosakoi to come to terms with her own issues and move out of her sister's shadow.

Speaking of sister, it wasn't till Tami mentioned Sally's sister that I realized this had to be Machi. The plot requires a reason for her to be there, so Sally forgetting the CD was the perfect opportunity to make her watch the performance.

No, Naru bumped into her first (21:28/29). After that Hana was left out of sync and couldn't put herself back together because she was unwell. But it was Naru's fault in the first place.

I do agree with you that Naru shouldn't quit. She has to learn from this and keep moving forward.

I really like this anime so far. Sure, it has delved maybe a pit too much in its dramatic moments, but I loved those as well.
Currently, Yaya is my best girl.

I like the drama is going so far, not too heavy, just enough conflict to move the growth of the characterization along.

Judging from the previews the dance debacle didn't seem to have traumatized Naru too much, I guess. Sure there are a lot for her to work out on in order to overcome such personal hurdles.

Next week seems to deal more on Machi, her beef with her sister and what she would bring on to the table for the team. I could only vaguely guess on reasons or how she joins the group. Sally sure became more significant to to the story than just as a comedic aloof club advisor.

You must have better eyes than me, then, as I could have sworn Hana messed up first, and I've watched that scene almost ten times now.

Going frame by frame it seems to me that Naru bumped her ass into Hana and that threw them both out of position and sync.
