Nakamura Yuuichi as Hatori was just perfect. I love the pairing, too.

There's definitely a sameness to the character designs. It took me a couple of views to realize that there was more than 1 couple in the OP. I don't remember this being such a problem with Junjou Romantica, so I'm a little surprised about it here.

I guess I should be happy though that they kept the shoujo manga cliche main fluff and lol misunderstanding intact! I'll just say that "OH LORD SO KYUT *A*" now and hope that the pacing for the couple portion will improve ('3') Hey, they put a lot of smiles on my face that I look like a fool in front of my computer~ Yeah, I'm biased to them.

... Oh and I totally forgot that Kamiyan was voicing Yanagise up until I watched the episode.

@Wandering-dreamer: There are 3 couples for this series. Can't say anything anymore other than the guy with ear piercing hasn't appeared. :3

As you said, here's hoping the pacing issue is fixed next week because I'd hate for this storyline to keep being that rushed. Though it'll still push my fangirl switch either way...

I thought episode 5 was absolutely beautiful. While it may have been rushed in comparison to the source, I'm actually very relieved that we didn't have any of the ongoing inhibition and reluctance that we do with the first couple.

Well well well.
Yeah, I'd personally prefer it if both sides of the relationship were a bit more comfortable with their sexuality; especially with what happened in the prologue for the first couple, I don't buy that one of them would be going on about "but you're a guy..."

I find myself grinning like mad when seeing anything BL-related. This time was no exception.

Now, to add this new pairing on to my ship list...muahahaha

Nice episode.
I didn't understand that the whole story was the manga until the end...

Wait, that whole episode was actually the plot of the story the manga-ka was working on? I thought they just used scenes of them working on the story in the cafe as "bookends" to the episode, little scared to ask the manga readers know what's correct.


And I'll check back here in the morning to see if anyone is howling at me for discussing spoilers outside of a spoiler box

It's one thing that made me go actually, since I didn't think they will rush over half of the whole first novel. ;-; (Compare to Ritsu's portion--4 episodes for one volume of the manga) Even though imo the novel content is pretty... 薄い, plotwise, I never thought they will just pack them all in one episode, and with weird cuts plus really fast pace. orz

Gah, I think I'm borderline ranting here, especially since I set the expectation too high for my most favourite couple this time!

Err... No? The whole hijinks aren't related to the manga Chiaki is working on...

It's not a spoiler, by the way; you are reading too much or get confused on the (rushed -cough-) episode ^^;;

Spoiler for episode 6:


Am I the only one impressed at how fast Ritsu reads off all those manga facts during the preview each week? I'm so busy reading the subtitles I almost don't see the preview is actually about, if it's a distraction method then it's pretty darn successful.

It is impressive. I must admit though that I try to ignore the subtitles and focus on the images because I really do want a hint of what's coming next week. Sometime, I should go back and focus solely on the subtitles to find out what he says. I suspect I'll need to pause the video now & then because my speed-reading isn't what it used to be.

I can't believe I'm saying it, but this was amazing! The protagonist actually thought about his emotions for both of them and understood they were different, went dere-dere and put his attention on Yuu to make Tori jealous and then accepted his love in the end.
This is far better than any straight romantic anime I've seen in the last years, FFS! And for the first time in my life I remember the names of the characters...

Yanase must be dumb not to realize that Yuu's possible interest is he himself...

Back to main couple next week, not that excited about it. Somehow the mains lost my interest by now. Want to see the third coupling!

Episode 7 reinforced my revulsion at the labor practices in the Manga industry. Those corporate jobs that force you to basically do their projects 24/7, go to business dinners when you leave the office and stay up until 3am every night working on files are disgusting. Rit should have stayed at the family company if they gave him better conditions and a strict 9-5 schedule.

I guess it's understandable, but this is clearly the least watched good anime of the year. Actual characters with actual thoughts and feelings. With nice insights into the manga industry. And how could anyone of any gender or real-life preference not get turned on by at least one scene in ep6?

I agree with velderia in liking it when there is more honesty and less forcefulness. Quite moving, really. I'm glad there is less of the actual violence here that I have seen in other BL shows.

If I have a complaint, it's constantly overexcited Ritsu. I've like Kondou Takashi in other roles, but not much here. Ritsu's journey is still pretty engaging, however.

Episode 8 - I can't believe Kisa is 30, either.

Great episode overall. Kisa always seemed so happy-go-lucky in the earlier episodes, so seeing his thought process being a bit like Ritsu's made me a little surprised.

Apparantly everyone on the Emerald team is now confirmed gay except for Mino.
