Now that I've seen the sub, I think ep3 is even more enjoyable than I did from the raw. I love the relaxed interactions. It's more than just Mana's hairpin that reminds me of Lamune. I agree that Yorito's slight panics were the worst of it, but he came through in the end.

As for Mana-Yorito, I think it's the classic osananajimi who don't realize they have those kinds of feelings for each other. Unfortunately, Matsuri is not going to be around forever, but Mana will be there to pick up the pieces, and lovely it shall be.

I'm guessing that right now, Mana and Yorito are at the Best Friends stage. (I doubt they're any lower, considering Mana is willing to cook for Yorito.) Now, whether they progress from there to having a Relationship is unknown.

Still, I'd say that Matsuri probably hasn't yet graduated from Mysterious Yet Attractive Girl. I've noticed that in a lot of anime, the progression to having feelings for each other tends to result from spending a lot of time together, so Matsuri may be able to catch up to Mana due to living with Yorito.

Of course, sola could subvert all of this by having Yorito remain single at the end of the series. Not "undecided", but completely, utterly single.

Like Air, right? Man that show was pretty.

Nice visuals usually don't add to the story, but they do add to the atmosphere, so they deserve to be appreciated. I think the reason we haven't seen the sky much here is because Matsuri doesn't see it, and it's really her story at the moment. I can see what you're saying, though.

I thought I saw a hint of Mana having feelings for Yorito when she asked Matsuri what their relationship was? I swear she blushed for a second.

PS. I tried the tongue twister and failed miserably. How do those seiyuus do it?

Yeah, there was a bit of color there. The animators are being somewhat reserved in their use of cliches.

I guess that's why they get paid the big bucks.

pr0n in this case = needless unneccesarily beautiful cloud moving animation with beautiful colours, effects, etc. I call it pr0n here because it adds nothing to the meat of the story other than "nice visuals".
Oh, so just fanservice.... but less jiggly.

Good thing it's not the other thing. 'Cause now you go saying you see a bunch of animals.....

Btw, where have all the Sola-fans gone? Start posting in this section of the forum, show more interest, or we will threaten to remove this forum and replace it with a thread. Just kidding.
Unlike Kanon (2006), there aren't any spoilers to discuss, that's why the Sola forum is so quiet compared to the former.

Be patient. I'll wager that activity usually peaks at the airing of every Sola episode.

Nayuki was pretty cool with first Makoto, and then Ayu, freeloading in her house too, until the latter started stealing THE MAN from her.

If we get to that stage, i seriously doubt it will be "lovely"

As for Mana's feelings towards Yorito... until i see something more, i am going to assume they are just good friends. She was very eager at getting Matsuri back once she thought she left

Perhaps it might be the good, old cliche "she just doesn't realize it yet", but for some reason it didn't seem that way to me.

Actually, i think i would prefer if she wouldn't have any. Then we could tackle Matsuri's story head on. Besides - i believe Aono is going to be a much larger problem than Mana.

well i think the reason why she wanted to get matsuri back was because there was a misunderstanding there that needed to be cleared up...and besides with her woman intuition she sensed that matsuri may have been a bit jealous to be walking off like that tho in reality she is just really genuine in that sense...i still think that there could be a potential love triangle ~ give it a few more time for the feelings of need to sink into mana and here we have a girl who wants yorito...

aono is still a mystery to me :/ but its great that not everything is predictable :3

Mana would be like Yorito's nanny if they weren't of the same age.

I'm thinking buddies would be a good description for the two's relationship, probably the kind that knows each other so well that it irks them to consider dating someone with x flaws or xx disgusting habits. Personally, I don't see much chance that Mana and Yorito will progress into the lovers stage even if there's a bit of drop hints from other characters in ep 3. Maybe it's Mana's attitude or maybe it's the rarity that Mana the osananajimi is supposedly the no.3 lead female character behind an onee-chan character.

The episode, I like it more so than the first two. The character-character interactions were well done, nicely complemented by Matsuri's "my pace" attribute which totally sucked the characters in... sucked me in too. And for theory of the day, Aono seems to be looking for a certain doll, just not the ones Yorito frequently buys for her. Now Mayuko is carrying a doll too, I wonder if there's a relation.

Hm... so far i think we might be jumping the gun with the supernatural stuff where Aono is concerned. I think it was more like her stating her dislike towards the type of doll Yorito brought

...Of course, i could be wrong.

...And of course, most of the dolls that Yorito bought are downright strange, as far as I can recall. Remember the bit he was asking the opinion of the other girls at the class in the earlier episodes about the doll that he have bought for Aono? They were like 'eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'.

What? Nooo.

This was a great episode to me though seriously. Im more into episodes where characters just interact alot and they did it in such a cute way on this one I couldnt help but love it.

As soon as aono gets more of a real role in the show ill be even happier with the show.

Just watched the first 3 episodes of Sola yesterday.
Though I thought the show looked interesting when I read about it somewhere about 2 months ago I'm kind of surprised of how good it really is.
This is the kind of show i really can enjoy.
Matsuri has got to be the best character in a long time.
she's cute, smart and have a really good sense of humor.
Loved her expression when she was eating the food and Mana came back to the kitchen

...somebody cookied me anonymously on this post. With no comments or anything. I don't even know what I got cookied for.

Thing is, it's not the first time. It's probably the same person who cookied me anonymously too, for a Lucky Star post I made which eventually got deleted by the mods for being off-topic (the mods themselves would know which one I'm referring to.)

See, I'm the kind of guy who takes negacookies in his stride if he feels they were deserved, but these cookies for no particular reason at all that I can think of....just puts me out of my stride. The heck is going on? Who's doing this?

This is the first time I am seeing a person "complain" about getting positive rep. Well, it certainly wasn't me. My positive cookies are very "distinctive". Maybe it is a secret admirer who is stalking your every move. Whatever the case may be, why look a gift horse in the mouth at all?

Cheers.

Heh. I'd go with your POV....if not for the fact that I simply can't figure out why I'm getting all this rep at all. At this rate, what I'm worried about are the mods mistakenly thinking that I illegally created a second account to abuse the rep system, and ban me for that when I did nothing at all.

Bah.....the rep system is fun to a certain extent, but I personally don't put much importance on it. I'm very clear on what my real reputation around these boards are.

Well, things happen. I recall getting negged thrice for apparently no reason (( post with absolutely no bias or malice )) and getting cookied once for no reason too. Though most of my cookies either came from my serious talks (( haven't been doing that for a long time now )) or my "Skane-lite/C2F-lite" imaginations.

This is off-topic though.
