I have a feeling that while Habara seems to be the most mellow now of her circle of friends, it's likely that she wasn't ALWAYS that way. The incident with Karasawa might explain just why her personality made a massive shift (and for the better, it seems).

I must have had my life the easiest in this board....non of my sister's (older and younger) friend act as violent as they are featured in this ep. I even got some snacks whenever they visit my house.

Not like it matters that much anyway. I don't watch anime to look for the thing I hate.

This turns out to be really good show... actually I am surprised how close to reality it gets sometimes...

As for the spoiled candy, I will try it IRL on my flat-mates

By the way is it me or does this stitch from the OP look like a cover from an AV

Now you reminded me of Hidenori saying "But I'm also an entertainer..."

No way... you're pulling our legs! :P Though I wouldn't mind if it turned out to be that way
I'm glad my ears weren't deceived, I just confirmed that Jun Fukuyama indeed played Savior as well as Kiyotaka.

You know, I'm perfectly fine with that. In fact if it were true I'd be overjoyed since I'm crazy about his seiyuu. It also helps that he has one of the better looking designs in this show. All that needs to be done is to up his comedy factor and I'm ready any day.

you know, just because someone's the main character doesn't mean his/her screentime will be substantial :P

In a series where there isn't a main plot, and every story can be view through multiple characters, is there really a need to define a 'Main Character' ?

I'm better off retracting my saying Hidenori is a "more normal Switch;" comparing Hidenori with a person with that huge of an emotional baggage is never a good idea.

Still, is the Lit Girl's crush on Hidenori more than coincidence, i.e. he is similar enough to the "introverted solitary geek" that she penned yet look enough cool not to weird her out?

Yoshitake poses a larger question to me, however. I haven't been able to get a hold of his current personality.

Usually black. Where did you see him a redhead?

It was Tadakuni who was trying to overhear the conversation between the Hidenori and Yoshitake lookalikes, right? He had red hair then and also at the last segment before the ending of episode 04 where he seeks counsel from Nago regarding approaching his friends. His hair turns black by the end of the segment o_o. I just can't think why they'd do that intentionally but it couldn't possibly have been a mistake either.

Compare this:
Spoiler for red:

with this:
Spoiler for black:


And it was in the same damn segment

It's probably because of the sun.

Nago's hair in the second pic seems red too.

No bloody damn way (unless the animators were pulling our legs but I really don't get why they would with this???). Just too much change in the hair color for that to be true. Your remark about Nago is a massive stretch when put alongside the change in his hair color. That's full out red that turns to full out black and nothing like the minor change in brightness we see with Nago's hair. But just for the sake of argument, his hair starts out red and stays that way when they are walking out of the shade and is red in the earlier scene where he spies on the lookalikes from the shadows. But it's black when he jumps out under the sun at the end of the segment with Nago.

A quick read through the manga and without saying too much spoiler... The character with the biggest screen time is clearly Hidenori. I wonder why the anime is trying to mislead us into thinking Tadakuni is the main character?

Character with biggest screen time =/= the mc. And I don't think the anime ever stated anything akin to "xyz is the mc." Just because it started with a guy doesn't mean he's the mc. As far as I go, this show clearly doesn't have and doesn't need a set "mc" but I will honor the mangaka's remarks and consider "that guy" the mc from now. Hoping for more appearances from him anyhow.

That isn't the point. The main thing is making us to think Tadakuni is the main character even he isn't.
