Again, it's nice to see Aoki get the spotlight. He turned out to be a fine character even though it took kind of long for it.

If I've said before, than I said a 100 times. This show is alot better when Aoki and Yui have decent screentime. Nice to see Aoki get an episode to himself and solve his own issues on his own like a man

Things are getting pretty ridiculous.
Lots of misunderstandings and funny situations.
That Heartseed really knows how to make their lives interesting.
Yui... needs to face her problems head on.
Well, at least Aoki dealt with his problem.
Yui still has a way to go, but is at least making progress ^^

Pretty good episode but I really did feel the rapid pace hurting it. They crammed in a hell of a lot and it took out some of the emotional weight. Aoki's extremely brief meeting with Nana is the prime example.

Speaking of which, I enjoyed the running gag where minor characters think Taichi is everyone's boyfriend or baby daddy.

It's funny only because the punchline was Nana mistaking him for Aoki's true love.

The episode was pretty interesting even though it felt a little rushed. Aoki's meeting with Nana could have been a little longer but it was fine despite that. Inaba seems to like acting like a mother, I think she must love children. Another good thing is that Taichi is not stealing the show as he used to do on earlier episodes and that's making the show a lot more interesting in my opinion.

Looks like next episode will be the arc's climax, I can't wait for it.

The problem is that the show doesn't let Aoki have real talks with Yui like Taichi has. It's pretty unfair considering Yui isn't even a love interest for Taichi.

Really, this show would be so much better is it was a bit more like an ensemble cast. Right now it's like Taichi has to be in the middle of everything, even in the few cases when he doesn't even do anything. That's really intrusive.

You could remove Aoki from the cast completely and nobody would notice him gone. The 3 girls can fight for Taichii and probably a better comedy relief/drama. I think She likes Tachii enough that he has a chance.

But again, that's not Aoki's fault. It's just the writer who doesn't do anything with his characters. The setting is perfect to develop all the characters but the writer just refuses to do anything interesting with him. It's a pity really, since his interaction with Yui would be so much engaging if he was properly developed.

There are quite a few shows like that this season. Do you really need more?

What in the world was Aoki doing? Hey I'm gonna go visit my ex to proclaim to her that I fell in love with someone else. What if she still had lingering feelings and was just finally getting over him? He would have just opened a whole bunch of old wounds if that was the case. And even if it wasn't the case, it's still something ridiculous to do to someone. If an ex of mine did that to me, I would think she was a pretty big jerk!

If they were really worried, they could've told Aoki to make the trip the next afternoon if he was unaffected.
You'll never know if the train could be delayed for hours. And Aoki probably isn't going to wait another day to get his feelings sorted out, have you seen how fast he wanted to rush back?

Even if she had lingering feelings, wouldn't it be better to not let her hold on to them? This way, both people know exactly where they stand.

So many people in this series who can't take no for an answer...
Yui's friend asked a legitimate question about the usefulness of their club activity.
Taichi, you suck at using your skills as a psychologist on guys. "Don't think too much about it"? Why don't you downgrade Inaba's trust issues like that?

Decent episode but as usual the setup is much better than the execution. Problems always get solved very fast and the scene with Nana felt really sudden. That was actually kind of mean, coming to visit an ex just to tell her you're in love with someone else. I mean she hasn't seen the guy in years and that's literally the only thing he says to her. I'd probably be like "Uh, ok...and I should care why...?".
Also anime doesn't portray similar people well when all characters have the exact same face

I kinda wish that Aoki's issue regarding forgetting carefree life and Yui's avoidance of her problems got a bit more developed/foreshadowed. They just seem to spring up this episode and that's it. But as I said, I wasn't too fond of how the characters seem to have one stagnating issue. Still, this show could've been so much better if it could work on multiple things at once, or rather allow itself to do so.

On one hand it's nice to see Inaba take a bit of initiative with Taichi, not something you see with anime girls who tend to suffer from serious cases of denial, but I really don't get how Iori and Taichi can let her do that. I guess I should just assume Iori is out of the game now.
And did Taichi really have to escort Aoki? He's like a freakin' camera.

Because more harem crap is just what anime needs. Girls fighting over one bland-as-hell guy doesn't get more innovative than that. We should also add the imotou and Yui's friend(s) to the harem, or any girl who makes eye-contact with the MC for that matter. That's real quality storytelling.

It's certainly a weird time to change the OP, how about a little bit of both? I suspect this new OP was planned for the BD episodes but for some reason was brought forward.

I dont know, I like Aoki, is nice to see that he's not just an airhead who lives without caring about anything and we got some nice char development as well.

Also I'm gonna leave this here, sorry if it was already posted:
