Its nice to see some calm male leads like Uryuu once in a while, as most generic male leads are the type who are occasionally rash and can't make up their minds. However Sakuno's style of speech is on a level, annoyingly slowwww, and monotone-ish.\

But it sure must be very odd to see people talking to themselves at supermarkets.

The good point of the slow speech is that one has a better chance to understand it than the usual fast(er)-pace of jp. speech . Personally, I like the these kind of characters unless they prove to be really bad by other actions or traits.

@supermarket: I whisper to myself when I do my routine-grocery shopping Mainly the things I put in my basket so that I can tick off that item on my "mental" shopping list or at the end to see if I have most things I wanted.

@Sakuno: I wonder if there's a reason why she called Shingo on the mobile that breakfast was ready on episode 1. Maybe it's just her way because she seems to have this innate quiet voice. It's at least the first time I've encountered such a scenario in anime (and VNs).

Airi still stubborn about guys in her school..
That cat thing is so totally cute #^-^#
Shingo got himself buried under all kinds of different obligations.
Guess we can expect some flaring emotions between Airi & Shingo even more in the upcoming episodes.

... It'll take time for Sena to mellow out as a character, not to mention the overall pacing of the story, but... damn. I feel like already putting her on a bounty for her head...

Ok just caught up with series and I have to admit loving it so far. Chara design is nice I have no problems with pacing or a fact that nothing is new in the show.

The only thing that worries me is that Shingo left the biggest impression on me. Perceptive, approachable, depedable, fast learner and his friend isn't some kind of pervert or goofball.
Loving the bits of him and his sister conversating.

Compared to majikoi I'm not familiar with source nevertheless i enjoy it far more. Somewhat interested in checking the original but if I develope any kind of foundness towards characters it will be hard to "read" it.

That furball is creepy.

Okay ... I thought ep 3 was very good indeed. Very well done and very realistic portrayal of the characters who are so normal imo it approaches being delightful!

8/10 vote for ep 3 from me....

Can't get into this. Tried watching episode 2, but my dislike for Sena after the first 10 min just skyrocketed. She's not even a tsundere really.. just a bitch. Doesn't help that it's so cliche ridden and typical. >< Think I'll hold off until it's finished before I watch it... hoping Sena isn't the end girl, but it's probably going to happen. I'd rather have the maid (she's funny), the sister or even the cat thing.

I guess I'll be sticking with Boku wa Tomodachi and C3 as my main animes for this season, and maybe I'll take up Majikoi, though I hear the story on that is confusing if you haven't played the VN (and even if you have). I read the manga, though, which I enjoy.

I would have jokingly stated that it's like a certain block but that's not quite accurate either.

At least the allocation usage of the minor character was done evenly without creating any distortion but this does make me wonder what possibilities exist other than the likely primary route.

Funny how it seemed like a 180 that made sense. As you noticed, Sana was the only active Yuijo student that can be used to communicate with (other than Angie I suppose, but she runs a maid role which semi-defaults incorporation) or be in local proximity of almost any given event because she has more links to the characters in terms of basic communication. Then you get this ep 4 incident but that is more due to character specific reasons.

What I meant by local proximity was lunch seating arrangements or who's next to who when walking home. Sana's the one next to Shingo in majority cases. (Of course the answer is to be next to Miu and nothing else in those cases but that's not really correlated with the episode 2 conversations.) I'm implying that it's interesting how the Yuijo girl that initiates and integrates with the boys the most actually has the most distaste. (Again from what's shown it feels more due to character specific reasons and not really a general things.)

On a random note, do the other characters have specific BGMs played? Miu's was obvious but I can't remember anyone else having one.

Funny how this anime would fall under romcom since no rom really manifested and there is no com at all.

Relentless mentioned some closure, so I'm curious about route implementation or character focus in future episodes and how that will be integrated without deviating.

After four episodes I've got to say, that this must be the most generic and bland anime I've ever seen, not even Hoshizora he Kakaru Hashi reached that level - at least the otouto-route trolling was sort of fun.

I respect your opinion, but I personally think it's sort of refreshing that this show isn't relying too much on gimmicks and instead just focusing on a calming, heart-warming atmosphere and character development. I guess I've seen enough of these shows by now that something just basically plays out like the game is fine by me, and even preferable to some of the other approaches I've seen. Of course, I totally acknowledge that everyone's mileage may vary, as they say.


Edit: Unrelated to the above, but to the latest episode...

Spoiler for Episode 4 BGM + extra observation:

By the nature of what has been the dominant staple for harems/romance over the last couple of years, this shows actually feels 'fresh' in spite of, if not because of, its very basic premise, gradual pacing, and 'realistic' characters.

Its not redefining the genre but going by older, more sentimental definitions that would fit in an 80s movie, and a style that many haven't really experienced in a long time.

That said, I am happily enjoying this show's refreshing atmosphere and male lead, I even like the complexities that were revealed about our (probably) main heroine. More or less, I think I know where the plot is going and unless they really throw a curve ball at us, its probably going to be an Airi route.
