So why wasn't she proactive about the problem and either (1) ask Hina to say something to her parents? or (2) contact Hina's parents herself and explain the situation? Seems like she could have prevented Atsushi's disappointment if she'd acted beforehand rather than afterwards.
This. I too am seriously disappointed by Atsumi not doing more to ensure her brother had a good time over at Hina's. She knows about his height issues, she knows he likes that girl and how hard the adults make it for him, so why isn't she helping him overcome his major hurdles more? Even if she didn't tell Hina's parents or have Hina herself do it, she could have escorted him there and explain the whole situation to Hina's parents herself. Or, in case that still would make people suspicious, have her parents (who never seem to be home) do it for her?

Instead, she welcomes her brother with a smile and cake when he returns home totally devastated, leaving Hina to wonder to Atsushi isn't coming. It's as if Atsumi planned it this way all along.

Atsumi is a brocon?

What I still don't understand is why their neighbor's face is not shown (he looks a little bit creepy despite looking handsome, especially with the kind of clothes he gave them...)

I hadn't thought of that, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit if that were true.

At the very least, she seems quite fond of him.

Just watched 8th, and I didn't feel any brocon vibe from Atsumi. All I got was that she's being simply well prepared since being mistaken for a freak has been all-to-normal daily experience for Atsushi. She does seem quite fond of Atsushi though, but not in any excessive tone, as far as I can see.

I agree. The brocon comment is supposed to be a joke

I don't know if she's an actual brocon, but I find the way she dresses him kinda suspicious. Though I guess they don't sell kid's clothes in his size, she could at least shoot for teenager, instead of salaryman...

You mean how she dresses him, don't you? I don't really see Atsumi dressing suspiciously.

I agree with you, she could try teenager's clothes, on him although it would be very weird if he dresses according to his age with that body of his...

First episode that didn't focus on Atsumi and it wasn't bad at all. Take-nii is rather interesting indeed. I like him, I think lol.

Heheheheheh ... liked ep 9 - was kinda nice to focus more on the sister and the sibling's childhood friend. Refreshing in a way.

Ep 10 was not that bad, but the ole joke of Atsushi being mistaken by people is already too old imo. Hmm ... I wonder what Hina thinks of the continually recurring events?

You know though - the ED for the show has been growing on me more and more. Pretty good, actually....

Actually... up to now... I haven't seen Atsushi ever really get to "hang out" with Hina after school...

Since every single time he tried to go home with Hina... get gets arrested...

You think by now... the Police and Neighbors would know his condition...

It's not like Atsushi is moving from cities to cities... he's been living at his home for what? 7+ years already?



I think the entire city has shorten memory or something, LOL...
That or they just likes to torture poor Atsushi for his condition...
