You know... where's Takenaka in all this? Shouldn't he be on the warpath once he finds out Hina spends more time with Subaru? XD

You mean watch her put up the jam? Yeah I'd like to, but something tells me I won't see some bounce...

Yeah that last part, when the gecko was grasping for dear life Now let's see her kiss it...

Takenaka got cut out in the process of condensing the material.

This episode has been the height of absurdity. For example, by what authority the degenerate aunt says lolicon to Subaru when she was the only who involved him in this. Absolutely drop.

You make it sound like it's unexpected and unrealistic. Frankly, it's pretty much given that if a guy ends up in an awkward position with a girl, either that girl or someone close to her will declare him to be a pervert, no matter how unintentional it was. And this is true of real life too. A girl stupidly does something that results in her flashing a guy, giving him a very clear view, and the guy who just happened to be there is declared a pervert. A girl tries to legitimately seduce a guy, and other girls who see will accuse the guy of wrongdoing. It happens, no matter how much the ones making the accusations are actually responsible.

Yes, it's truly absurd, but it's an absurdity that reflects the more absurd aspects of reality. It would actually be kind of weird if she didn't do anything. Also, she might have had reasons for doing this other than actual suspicion. Tomoka would be dreadfully embarrassed by the situation, even more so because it happened in front of so many witnesses, and declaring Subaru the bad guy might have partly been an attempt to make things easier on her.

Did feel like the episode got carried away with the cliche of a guy getting into a tricky situation by no fault of his own and then getting hit for it. I mean seriously if the Aunt is going to attack anyone it should be her coworker who eventually is going to commit a crime. Not that I don't think Subaru is turning into a lolicon, but he completely wasn't in the wrong this time around.

What surprises me is that you exactly gotten nine episodes in before you realized what kind of show this is

I love how people are seriously discussing social values and whatnot over what's plainly simple teasing.

That would almost have been heartwarming, apart from the 'wardrobe malfunctions' and the tentacles. Still, Tako-san got what was coming to him...

Let us hope the truncated and fan-service-upped First Season is a ploy to boost DVD and Blu ray sells to justify a souped-up, higher budgeted second season with 24 Episodes....

Hey, it worked with beloved old K-On!! With a bit of lucky we just might see Ro-kyu-Bu The Movie in a year or two as well!! (If Strike Witches could do it, why not us?)

Well, that's why you wait for at least 180 days between seasons these days.

Speaking of which, how many novels are we into right now, in terms of story currently? They have 7 Translated Volumes on release in Taiwan right now.

I'm not sure. I only have 7 books in japanese raw. But maybe more than 7.

They are currently at vol 5 and skip some in vol 4 which is where more Aoi is. They choose more the loli elem. girls than the childhood friend.

Yeah, I missed the basketball stuff. Now I ran out of b-ball playbooks to analyze.

The only playbook I have seen Subaru used so far is the 4-1 offense, and that's only my wild guess since the girls' exact positions on the hardwood (not their player positions, they have been specified earlier) were not exactly specified, and Subaru had Maho and Saki do jump shots and Airi challenge Tomoka's shots (as part of Tomoka's Attack the Basket training routine).

However, given that three of the girls (Maho, Saki, and Hinata) will specialize in perimeter shooting unless Subaru gives them a new training regimen for each of them, the 4-1 offense pretty much makes sense as their playbook.

Under the 4-1 offense, four players will stay outside the paint while the odd man out (usually the Big Man Center) covers the post area. If the defending team tries to contain the best offensive player either by double teams or zones, since there would always be at least one man open.

The open man could either slash their way through less defenders to the cup against double teams, or settle for the wide-open perimeter shot against zone defenses. Should a perimeter shot miss, the Big Man Center can take advantage of his/her superior size and strength to score off the miss or give the offensive team another 24.

So the best way to contain the 4-1 offense IMO is if the defense sticks to man-to-man, or if they are quick enough to go back to the open man off the double team.

The Dallas Mavericks used something similar to this whenever they go really small, with Dirk as the Center, Kidd as the PG, Barea as the SG, Stevenson as the SF, and Terry as the PF.

From Ogura Yui's blog today, Yui (left, Hinata) and Iguchi Yuka (Maho) during taping of the Shoot! video:



Yui thanked people for their support at the Ro-kyu-bu concert over the weekend. She said that today she was doing recording and interviews/photos as part of YuiKaori, and that all the talking was fun. And she thanked people for buying her Kamisama no Memo-chou Alice character song CD, which comes out officially today.

Her Ro-kyu-bu charasong CD comes out next week. Hikasa Youko's charasong CD came out this week, and is sitting at #26 on its first day. Iguchi Yuka's came out last week, and was #32 for the week. Hanazawa Kana's came out the week before, and was #45 for the week.

Concert? For a 12 Episode Anime?
Just like beloved old K-On! ??
Whoa-Ho-Ho the popularity of the franchise has hit the Tokyo Anime-Fandom hard...

Here's to Season 2 when a few more novels for materials comes out!!

(And yes, as a now incurable fan of Hanazawa Kanna's gentle, adorable yet charming voice, Second Season of Infinite Stratos and Ore Imou as well too, please!! )

Well, yeah, K-On meets basketball, I see.

Come Season 2, if they cut down on Fanservice, I could get more strategies and plays to analyze.

What do you guys think of the result of the favorite character votes in this forum later on?

For now, I just want to predict the placing 1st to 5th

I'm betting the main five girls.

Here's my vote result prediction:
1st place: Hinata
2nd place: Tomoka
3rd place: Airi
4th place: Maho
last place: Saki

I predicted this kind of result without having any second thoughts.
