An exchange of underpants? If sharing a water bottle is an "indirect kiss," did Miyako call the underpants exchange "indirect sexual contact"?

Not sure who is the better main character Yamato or You Sato (ben-to)... Nevertheless fun episode. Miyako actions are as hilarious as last weeks' episode. Think Yamato made a penis-food joke,
Spoiler:

Never got the impression that Yamato was that dirty from previous episodes.

Episode 4

This just got a hell lot funnier and it once again began with Miyako, the most fucking awesome character in the show.


She totally deserves the title of "The Ero Queen"




Ah Yamato, those words really touched my heart, I have a new found respect for you bro
Oh and thanks to him Chris will never look at a fried tofu wrapped sushi the same way again

Considering the timeline of the story, he should have seen her naked quite a few times already...

Still reserving my judgment on this series.

Wow, that scene with Chris and Yamato in the bath must have been a lot of fun to record. Classic tsundere action from Itou Shizuka there.

Err... no. After watching episode 4 I'm rising a white flag here. Gonna drop the series. Too much focus on ecchi and the typical harem gags. As a VN player, as much as ironic this may sound, this is a total letdown for me. Hope the rest of you enjoy it.

Wow, this episode was just terribly paced.....TERRIBLE.

The entire first half was just a naked chick standing around and talking, so damn boring..I was so tempted to just give up....

Then the second half came, definitely was more tolerable, but still horribly paced, spending each half of an episode solely on talking to one girl for an entire scene gets boring REAL quick.....Then its worst when they didn't even properly introduce us to these girls....

I don't know if I'll be able to continue if the entire format will be like these last 2 episodes...

SN: And as a black guy, that dude at the end is seriously making me wonder if I should be trying to bust his damn mouth open.

It's quite amazing how they animated the running gag during Christiane's route when Yamato "constantly" runs into the bathroom and sees Chris naked. Especially the other gag of Yamato convincing Chris with the "It's alright in Japan" method and actually making her fall for it

Finally got introduced to the challenger system for Momoyo, of course it still ends the same with them getting defeated in one shot. Also excellent play on showing Momoyo being extremely bi and whisking the captured girls away

Miyako is the same as usual

Showing Wanko's nickname "Dog" with Yamato merely blowing a whistle which will call Wanko right to him. Also her determination to become just like Momoyo.

So far, the anime does give some clear hints of character development. But it still makes me think it's meant for the VN readers to fully enjoy it.

That's what I'm leaning on.....

A number of folks who watched this anime without prior VN knowledge are completely lost right now....but your post makes it clear you fully understand what's going on, and enjoying it.

I think that's probably who it was made for, but they could have at least gave a little heads up to let people know VN knowledge would be required....

I recommend you guys to still visit this thread, and we will tell you when the truly good chapters start. For now, I suggest you to simply give up and only read the reviews. I'm still gonna hang in there as a fan, but I wish next episode is better, for God's sake. I had enough of bath scenes, seriously. Miyako scenes are not enough to save the anime, they should search for other characters as soon as possible.

And yeah, if you still haven't realised it, this is meant for fans only. I can confirm that other people that haven't played the game are completely lost right now after watching it so far. I had to lend to a friend my game and the english patch so he could understand the show.

Yeah this anime is a complete disservice to the original VN. It offers little to nothing of what made the VN special and focuses on things that were never the original focus in the first place way too much. I already dropped it after episode 3 but seeing these preview images of episode 4 assures me that I'm not missing out on anything.

indeed!! whenever Miyako's on screen, 100% pure excellence and awesomeness is assured! She's the saving grace of the show, no doubt about it.

aah, what a truly awesome touching speech! It also works perfectly as a satire towards the current overall Japanese-anime situation (what with all the censors, Ishit-storm, etc.)
yeah, Yamato... I so agree with you! Japan should really get back to its 80's/early-90's era - [when showing nipples and naked anime characters on screen was no source of concern for anyone] - in order to reclaim its "righteousness" back again!

@those who intend to drop the anime: If Majikoi itself hasn't completely estrangered your experience, you should try out the manga. It's a lot more based on the VN and starts off at the beginning, although I do not know in which direction it is heading. I found it more funny than the anime at least (although I'm not the most humor-appreciating person ...).

@episode: Ooookay~ Will this character 1 in first half, characters 2 + 3 in second half concept be kept? From the look of it it seems more than a row of individual stories of each girl (regardless if based on the VN or not) than an overall connected story. Oh well, Miyako was awesome as ever. Chris was uhm ... Yamato is surely a master in discussing his opinion the in-depth way. I guess it shows Chris "pureness" in her way of thinking and sets her "flag to capture".
And Wanko was simply fun. I think I'm one of few people who actually liked her route as one of the better ones.

As a big fan of the game, I feel torn.

Why?

Because while there are still enough chuckles left in the anime, the "concentrate on this girl" format doesn't work out well. It's simply not remotely enough time for proper characterizations, so the girls are being "dumbed down" and simplified. Which turns them into cookie-cutter Haremettes. Sad.

Example: In the game, the process of getting Chris and Yamato together was REALLY slow and required alot of effort from both sides. In most aspects, they are polar opposites of each other, and it requires _extreme_ work by Yamato to _gradually_ change Chris' resentment to respect to appreciation to love. And seeing this slow development along with her self-doubts reflected in Chris' inner dialogues made the result all the more appealing. Over here, Chris seems merely one of many girls trying to get into his pants.

I can only repeat my recommendation: If you're generally interested in settings and characters, play the game. It's definitely worth it.
