I may have misunderstood, but I thought we had a holder of a karate belt here earlier saying that it was never part of the teaching. So I can accept that she might not have known. Kicking himself, however, was indeed above and beyond the call of duty, lol.

As for the kicking, I remember in middle school, the tougher kids (male and female) at my school used to spend recess playing around trying to kick each other in the genitals. After school, they might have moved on to something else involving genitals, not sure. The school was part suburban and part rural.

And I'm pretty sure I remember a three-way switch, but not a three-day switch.

Ah ha ... well, ok. Even if not part of karate "curriculum" per se that still only lessens it a little for me.

But it's not a big deal overall for me, I guess - the overall story and development has definitely grabbed my attention for now.

Yep. That's also common practice in middle schools around argentina. They'd punch you, or kick you whenever you were not paying attention. Hence every damn break everyone was en garde.

In any case, great episode. Enjoying this a lot.

Yeah cause amongst them it seems Aoki is the one who can read the mood easily.
That's why he dragged Iori away however he can't do that to both Inaba and Iori too. So he choose the most likely to react. However it seems he miscalculated the effects on Inaba

While I do believe that both Iori and Himiko have some feelings for Taichi, I don't think that final scene actually involved their reactions to Taichi's budding friendship with Yui. I didn't pick up any nuances that indicated jealousy on either of them, but only on Aoki, which was obvious. My interpretation was that both of them didn't really consider it too significant from a romantic standpoint, and the main takeaway for them was that some good could come out from the whole personality-switching.

I'm still unsure about why Himiko fainted, though at this point I would attribute it to her having weak health. Maybe that's her weakness in this series.

I'd like to mention a thought that has been bugging me since ep.2 I think it was. Not sure if this was brought up before but meh.

Has anyone noticed how the two guys and genki girl don't seem to mind the whole swapping ordeal compared to orange karate girl and ice queen? As for the Ms. Orange, she doesn't really seem to mind as long as she is in another female's body. But the ice queen, she is so strongly against their predicament in such a way that makes me think she has something she really wants to hide. I wouldn't be surprised if it has something to do with her brother (that's her brother in her home right?)

That's a nice thought. Now that I'm entertaining the idea it looks quite plausible that it has something to do with her family, and how we didn't see her family other than her brother (and her snubbing him)

You'd be surprised how naive people can be sometimes. I just read a biography about a woman who didn't even know that she was pregnant or how she got pregnant until she went into labor at a hospital. And it wasn't like she was a dumb person either.

After that, this sort of naivety doesn't push it at all for me.

I'm 25 and have seen a few of my college buddies using the "What's the capital of Thailand?" bait quite a few times.

You may be right, but my first thought was that her consciousness had left her body without someone else's coming in. It seemed so sudden. But the preview hints it might just be some kind of weak health.

One of the strongest lines in ep3 was when she muttered to Taichi that "everyone but you yourself is your enemy." That certainly ties in with the idea that she doesn't feel at ease with her own family, and also with her generally harsh attitude.

Good show.

I kinda doubt that, since I assume that most of the posters here are male. For the female posters: "Please don't try this at home to any male. Yes, that includes your dogs and cats ."

The weird thing is that they missed out the Cosmo Ferris wheel which is a major Yokohama landmark in its own right.
The tallest Japanese building to be completed in the 1990s, that is. The Tokyo Skytree which reached completion end of February 2012 has now more than double its height, with a whopping 634m, which makes it the "Tallest free standing tower in the world" and "Second tallest manmade structure in the world".

Yes, I also thought that her consciousness switched out again, and perhaps something went wrong during the switch, and non one else's comes into her body. Imagine two of them being in the same body at the same time, each one having control over one half of the body only. That would require a good amount of cooperation between them to get even the most mundane things done properly
The more I think of that possibility... This really has potential. It would be great if they explored this as well

So are there any hints about which school in Yokohama is the setting for the story? For some reason, most of the schools in slice-of-life anime tend to be located on top of a hill.

Good show.
A failed swap couldn't be the case because she didn't stop suddenly to speak as usually the swap does when it happens, but she lowered her voice first. My first thought was a weak health, but it could be even simply that she fainted due to the stress of the situation related to her family issues.
And the line you pointed out surely strengthens indirectly the idea that she is really worried, so stressed, about the whole thing. Surely if she has family issues and is either a sick girl and she is an ice queen ... well, too many issues for one char, aren't they? But I would be already sold to her!!

I think Inaba is just super stressed of the situation that is why she fainted.
And I think Inaba knows all of the trauma or weakness of all the characters. Like knowing Yui and Ioris' situation amongst the characters.

One poster to site2 below says it is probably 横浜学園高校 Yokohama Gakuen Koukou. And a student at that school posts to say he thinks it is, too. Here is that school's website. Here's a Google map.

Here are some sites showing "sacred places" from this show: site1, site2 (more pages listed at bottom of post, before comments), site3.

Heh, somehow they all look better in 2-D

I was beginning to think that the school design was just a stock design that's commonly used in anime, since the schools are almost always on a hill and there's usually a wide canal/river with grassy slopes that the characters will sit or lie down on.

For that matter, the main character usually has a window seat that is in the back half of the classroom.

I knew someone would fall for my cunning trap... The Sky Tree is not a building, it's a skeletal tower with a couple of observation decks two-thirds of the way up like its Gojira-ridden ancestor, the 330-metre Tokyo Tower and a few other towers in Japan and elsewhere. The Yokohama Landmark "Tower" is a building with occupied floors running from ground almost to the roof level; the top twenty-five stories or so are a hotel which I've been in, the rest are offices as I recall.
