Okay, the staff have decided to try creating the second thread for people waiting for the TV broadcast as an experiment in this one case. Since people have requested it, we want to give it a try and see how things go. Everyone is welcome to continue using this thread if they want, but people who want to limit the conversation ONLY to the TV broadcast schedule (or the official streams) can use the other thread.

For more information, please read the opening post of the other thread carefully. Please do not cross-post between the two threads. This thread will still be the primary thread, and post from the other thread may be merged here after the airing (TBD).

After the show is over, we may ask for feedback from everyone to see what they thought of this approach. Generally, we prefer not to split the audience, but we'll give it a try to see how it goes.

With subs out, I won't spoiler this. Let me know if that's the wrong approach.

I loved ep5. Almost too much happened. The first encounter was a bit more of the same. But the last part was fairly thrilling. "Don't let her become me because humans will be destroyed." The goddess is always a hit with me, especially with Tanaka Rie's voice, definitely like a voice from another world here (or from another show, lol). I'm thinking that Sagara-sensei somehow wants the goddess to return, whatever the effect on humanity.

Personally, I find it very easy to sympathize with Izumiko. She is insecure and nervous, but with strength at her core. I don't like seeing her fall in love with a guy who (sometimes) bosses her around so much, but I can still enjoy her dawning feelings. And I always enjoy Hayamin's voice. I like the ED more and more.

That make-up was okay, since it was performance make-up to the taste of a kabuki master, not make-up for daily life. I like the powerful people who keep emerging from the shadows here. As long as we steer clear of "threat of the week." kuromitsu makes good points, but I'm still riding the wave here. We just need to keep making some progress, both in plot and in feelings.

Episode 5 felt a lot longer than 24 minutes. It was like I just finished watching a movie.

The pacing of the series so far makes it feel like I'm watching a book being read.

The 'fight' in the beginning was amusing. I really enjoy the different spiritual jutsus that show up in anime, and its cool seeing them all come together in one school.

Interesting how Sagara reasons the triplets didn't mind letting their secret out because the triplets judged themselves to be stronger than Sagara & Izumiko. And that if they found out the truth, they might turn to enemies. I think I kind of got confused which of the triplets is real and which is a divine spirit....

We finally find out the reason for the school and the meaning of the title inside an episode itself instead of just a caption in the beginning.

The goddess coming out again was fun. I'm kind of curious now too see what will happen if Izumiko is made the goddess lol. Do it!

Izumiko needs to stop doing that dance, bad things always pop up afterwards lol.

Wasn't big on the shadow student president side, I really get annoyed at those kind of things and their shenanigans.

Seems like the reason the goddess said that Izumiko would be the last vessel is finally revealed. Also, the bit after the credits show things are heating up between the two.

Love ep 5. I like how Masumi ass whipped bob hair boy so bad that he'll be scarred for life. Izumiko and Miyuki just advanced to another level in their relationship. They took turn to get jealous. Ain't they sweet or what. It's so nice to be young....

man I'm getting quite addicted to that ending wonder when full versions will come out.

anyway ep5 was really packed. The fight with Takayanagi was one sided, guess he was too full with himself. Masumi-kun is the real power here, and the one doing the fighting ( including the devouring of the shiki spirit at the end, they're just making it seem Manatsu is the one doing it, as said by Manatasu. Takayanagi was just stupid, or at least not in the izumiko power level tier to understand or see what was happening, he was only able to feel a spirit hanging around the "twins". Anyway that made it doubly funny how Matsumi (gusied as Manatsu) was slapping takayanagi around. ^^

Yukimasa is as creepy as ever, I always feel uneasy whenever Izumiko is with him. Miyuki regressed once again in his presence, which is IDK weird...but at least he was going forward there at the end with that admission, and blush.....

Finally Honoka ( he is a boy right??? trap?) and the Real president Hodaka, more shadowy characters, with their secret agendas,nice he got told off by Himegami ( you're not the real judge! )... yey! Maho appeared again...oops., loved how she uses Sonata.... Anyway she finally revealed why Izumiko would be the last, cause she will destroy humanity if she gets re-created once again. So it falls on Miyuki & Izumiko to fulfill her wish , but they will be going against those in power like Yukimasa... oh well lets see what happens next.

I don't know, I think it's obvious by now that he has huge, HUGE issues wrt Yukimasa, and he feels much more at ease when daddy is not around.

No, she's a girl. Apparently she just prefers wearing the boys' uniform.

Well, if it's true that Yukimasa has abused him since he was a child, I can see why he would develop all sort of issues about him.

A reverse trap. That's even better.


EDIT: who put a "seinen" tag on this thread? The novel is from a general-audience label, and it obviously leans towards a female audience. And the manga adaptation is from a shounen imprint. The anime is just anime. It's not seinen at all.

Ep6. Some strong moments, such as the discussion with the club leaders. I'm beginning to enjoy Miyuki, and understand his intensity and sometimes nastiness. He's insecure, but aggressive by nature. I hope we get more definition in this weekly string of conflicts. Does it all work together or not?

But for me, it is our heroine's character that carries the show. Weak, strong, ignorant, determined, able, incapable. The punch bowl sequence was handled beautifully, ending up with her floating out to see Masumi. As usual, there is more to her than it seems.

I love the ED, which is written and sung by Itou Masumi, who also wrote and sang such theme music as the Haibane Renmei ED, Koe Kaze ED, and Zettai Shounen ED. But it turns out that she also goes by the pseudonym of Nanase Hikaru, under which she has written the BGM for many shows, including Scrapped Princess, Canaan, Noein, Requiem for the Phantom, Hiiro no Kakera, etc. Here's a music video of hers.

Episode 6 was good.
Full of content. It balanced the leisure time well, while at the same time setting things up and providing info on what's going on.

Izumiko getting drunk was funny. Wasn't sure if her floating around was actually her, or if she astral projecting around. The conversation with the 3rd sibling was mysterious.

The end of the episode left on a strong cliff-hanger. Really curious how Mayuri will react if Izumiko goes into goddess mode.

Slowly but surely, RDG is staking its claim to be one of the top shows of the Spring, just as I expected.

I think it's more than abuse. (I'm almost thinking that the abuse issue is overrated in this case. He is a monk after all. Dad been telling the truth so far about Miyuki (status and strength wise).) Miyuki's complaining about dad not having a steady job almost like he wished that dad was at home more often.

And... dad is the one that gets the female attention more of the 2.

Though Mayura points out that Miyuki is constantly being asked out by girls at Houjou and turns them all down, so I doubt that's a factor.

I think episode 6 is pretty spectacular, even in SD. Gorgeous visuals, increasingly interesting main couple, intriguing plot, best ED of the season. Amazing how the series is able to do so much with no sensation of hurrying, like a big cat languidly covering ground.

There's constantly being asked out and then there's dad's level. Dad is close to rock star level attraction. Miyuki is "normal" attractive guy level.

Normal guys are constantly asked out by girls?

In any event, there's no evidence whatsoever that popularity with babes has any role whatsoever in Miyuki's seemingly justifiable anger at his father. There are plenty of other good reasons that require nothing more than taking the events on-screen at face value.

Yes, in anime "normal" good looking guys are constantly asked out. Now the quality of the girls are questionable if they already know that he's "engaged" to Izumiko. He could be getting notes from all the "sluts" in the school.

So this finally starts to look like an Ogiwara's story.
