For once? Besides maybe one or two times, Yozora always pays for her actions. Not to the same degree that Sena does, but still.

Like I said, bad karma . Sena's getting the penalty because of her attitude anyway. Too much pride and "ojousama" air around her.

Man, another funny ep. Loved it when Yozora was emphasizing "meat" in front of Sena while on the phone with Kodaka rofl.

To use cellphone in Japan you have to be on a plan...no pre-paid credits as such. Touch phones are becoming common in Japan particularly with the younger crowd.

Amusing no one is dissecting the strange physics when Sena's boobs are concerned yet is analyzing Sena running away crying and the motive behind it. They are the same, it's called fan service. In slapstick comedy when a character gets flattened by a physical hit, do you go and then claim 'gosh that's too much force, what's wrong with this character? Can't you see it's hurting the flattened one too much'? Sena's ego inflates right back just like the flattened character, service time over, the show continues. "Sena's running away because Yozora hurts her feelings" LOLZ.

It's not really Senna that I'm worried about. It's Yozora's character. It's kinda hard to like her when she acts like that.

^ Think of it in this way, because of Yozora's heartless and unbound bullying, Sena gets several chances to:
  • Show off her meat bouncing, while running away in tears, which is both sexy (former) and cute (later) nonetheless...
  • and run to Kodaka for consolation, pretending (rightfully or not) to be the helpless victim in need for protection, also very cute; as well as very effective, since Kodaka has shown in more than one occasions that is attracted to weak girls in need of white knights.
So considering the results, Yozora pushes Sena to Kodaka's arms, which pisses her off, which makes her more offensive, which pushes Sena even closer... and so goes the vicious circle

Ironically, except for the spam at the end which went waaaay too far (that's just not cool, not cool at all), Yozora is pretty likable this episode.
  • She's all giddy about the cellphone with Kodaka. It's even funnier for me because I felt something similar first time I did the infrared exchange thing.
  • Sena was pushing Yozora's button with her tsuntsun on cellphones, and Yozora's response wasn't at all overboard. Kinda funny actually.
  • Rika owned her off-screen with her invincible perversion. It's fun seeing Yozora in defeated mode for once.

Really? Has it changed that much in the last 6yrs? I remember having to pick up a prepaid cell phone last I was there cause it would've cost an arm and a leg using my own phone. Hard to keep up with the times, I'll have to ask my cousin if this is true.

Anyway boob physics are fine! The more they jiggle the better! XD

While I don't mind the boob physics, I have to say though that some of the gratuitous fanservice shots in this show are really strange. I can't really explain why, but I think the best description I can give is "imagine Animaniacs slipping in an adult joke, only for it to get discovered by the censors instantly".

I don't see how it's strange since the show is littered with tons of fanservice.

Hey, now. I still use a flip phone too. I have no interest in phones besides using them to call people-- I pretty much view them with the same disdain as Sena does.

Yukimura is the show stealer this episode, being a maid with a bizzare code of honor and making Maria's life terrible. It's a nice break from Yozora and Sena's bickering which is funny in itself, but can get a bit too much. Sena's just frustrated from not having a phone like anyone else, so she spends most of her time making her boobs bounce. She should have totally just bought some expensive phone and mocked people.

I also laughed at the discussion about forums, for obvious reasons. Oh man, they'd totally wreck the internet.

Technology which one isn't acquainted with leads to these strange and fun feelings. It's like "omg this gadget can do what?" That part was well done.

And Yozora might have to learn that that behavior's gonna make matters which will draw sympathy away from her. Or not... Good episode, so 8/10

Not really sure. Could just be me, personally.

Edit: I think it's because while there's a lot of fanservice thrown into the show, it's usually done in a way where it doesn't distract (like with the Negima manga). However, some of the fanservice shots (like that focus on Yozora's and Sena's chests in Episode 4 after Rika started hugging Kodaka's arm) look out of place to me. Like somebody hired an anime camera man who had a dubious resume. It's not as bad as those low-angle shots you see in a lot of fanservice anime, but it makes Rika's perversion look natural, and I don't think that's a good thing.

I don't find the fan service from this anime that bad.

When you compare it to something like Highschool Of The Dead or anything similar, it isn't close to strange XD

Then again, some people aren't that fond when it comes to fan service, so it could lower their expectations of this anime if it's like that.

Personally, I think the fanservice in Haganai is pretty low-key. Especially when compared to some other more fanservice-based/driven shows.
unless you wanna consider the annoying "gainaxing" - (with fully-clothed breasts) - as "fanservice" too...

(but only if done right)

Same here, nothing wrong with it.
Actually, there's nothing wrong with fanservice as a whole

Yes, I've seen series with a great deal more fanservice. This here is really very tame in comparison.

True, the more puritan folks aren't that fond of fanservice because of their pantsu-phobia

Agree. I just don't get it sometimes when people goes "Stupid fanservice anime" just b/c there are soime bouncing boobs. Hack, I don't think there's even any pantsu-shot so far, and the only "true" service is when Kobato run naked into Kodaka a few episodes back (Even then, it's in the novel, so I won't complain at all about it being "random fanservice").

The only stupid fan service I see is in the opening when Yozora and Sena have their bodies pressed against glass. Other than that, there isn't anything out of the normal that you wouldn't see in real life.

I don't think pre-paid phones are available to non-residents, everything else comes with contracts, no pre-paid sims. Though there are phone 'rental' services but I did the sums and I might as well use the roaming service instead (and IP phone).

I'm more commenting on how gag behaviour/service is taken as 'personality'. An analogy is to take Team Rocket's tendency to disappear into the horizon as their personality trait of 'like to rocket it' and by extension, this is caused by of how brutally violent Pikachu is.

Reality is, Team rocket doesn't need to rocket it nor is Pikachu a serial killer, but that's the gag of the show.

My favourite scene is somehow the opening where Kobato changes her mind about going out so nonchalantly.
