Episode 3 of Tona Gura! establishes a pattern of puns that are going to be employed consistently throughout the series.
Spoiler:


One of the better puns is Kazuki having daydreams about Yuuji being cool and gentleman fullfilling their promise. She either wakes up on her head or her fantasies shattered with her reality check about Yuuji still lingering on his lecherous ways.

Would roughly translate to: A spruce Yuuji and a surprised Kazuki.

Tonagura! titles are quite straightforward with the exception of ep 4's: にゃあ~( ゚ω゚)haha, then again, it's rather fitting.

Ah, forgot to comment on episode 4.
Spoiler for Episode 4:

Upon commenting for episode four, I noted Marie became even more ruthless and proactive delivering justice (i.e. shooting him) to Yuuji every time that caught him on about or in the middle of his lechery acts.

I felt a little vexing, since Kazuki is also more than able to handle Yuuji by herself.
I sort of missed the punches and kicks that lacked in that episode.

Perfect summary. Not even I could have described with the best of words.

Yep. The episode showed how good chemistry Yuuji and Chihaya make as friends, chatting to each other about a hobby that the two of them enjoy much. Unfortunately, Kazuki starts to get an uneasy feeling for those two; jealousy perhaps. As much as she wants to internalize her feelings with the obvious and logical justification (that which Yuuji is reponsible for) due to Yuuji's echiness, she's starting to warm up for him.

Also, Hatsune became disappointed and frustrated that both Yuuji and Kazuki could not get along; gives more grounded basis that she's rooting for those two to eventually get together and ending up confessing that they love each other and is been planning all those timely chances for make it happen.

I could not either understand much about the conversation, however, I may have a vague idea.

Saw up to episode 06. Episode 06 was mainly a drama episode. I envision a compromise: if only Yuji possessed more self-control over his hormones, and Kazuki less uptight and perhaps let a man cop a feel once in a while like Chihaya, maybe their match would be ideal. But honestly, I have about as much interest in the interactions between our male and female protagonists as I do snails crawling across my lawn. So why am I still watching this show? Answer: Hatsune-neesan. This episode further showed her strength and appeal as a soft-spoken elder-female pillar of mental and physical support. While she isn't consciously aware of Kazuki&friends eavesdropping during her counseling with Yuji, it does demonstrate she has an innate sense of amelioration. And yes, the ara aras. Can't forget about the ara aras. With the next episode looks to be focused on Hatsune, I have the anticipation that episode 07 will be the climax of the series for me. Hatsune, in glasses...mmm...

A beautiful episode from both Kazuki and Yuuji seeing each other through their points of view.

It also establishes without denial that Hatsune plays a binding force not only to root for them and helping along the way to grow attached to each other, but also to guide them in finding out that they love each other and for one day to confess their feelings without shame.

Kazuki gets to know Yuuji a sensible and shy side of his persona, totally opposite from his lecherous daily self. The conversation she listened between Yuuji and Hatsune about the photographs, speaks great volumes about Yuuji wishing to make Kazuki smile; capturing her beautiful smile on camera.

Everything else went as Muir Woods and Sailor Enlil posted, though they skipped quite some touchy details.
Spoiler:


After this episode what if Yuuji's lechery actually plays somewhat of a useful but freaky function?
I think that Kazuki can freely let go off her emotions and smile with more ease whenever Yuuji goes rampage on her.

If that's true, then Tona Gura! proposes an ingenious and original way how to make the female lead less uptight and more free with her quirks through ecchi therapy.

Spoiler:


Unbelievable! Yuuji did not get shot or beaten in this episode.

Indeed, the episode was Hatsune-centric and proved hazardous to her health and the welfare of both Yuuji and Marie.

I have to say, I am very pleasantly surprised by this series. At first I thought it was just brainless ecchi, but after watching ep 5 and 6, my impression completely changed. This is a very good series so far.

Tonagura is a very enjoyable ecchi comedy. Though Yuuji's ecchi-meter reach dangerous levels when the opportunities present themselves (Chihaya tempting him at Episode02, for instance), his pouncing ecchi-ness seems to be reserved for Kazuki.

It's great that the fansubs are up til Episode03 already.

But more than 7 eps are already aired, and the fansubs is still at ep 3. I would say the fansubs aren't doing that great of a job compared to other series, like let's say Zero no Tsukaima.

Anime Online may be referring to the fact that at least two groups released Episode 1 during the third week of July, and we didn't see anything else (other than the raws) for over a month. Ryu released the first three episodes during the past week, so we're in a lot better shape than we were. Previous to the Ryu releases, some of us were relying on the raws and summaries.
