I sure do hope that this "Goddess" is on topic, otherwise I'll have to INSIST that any further discussion be taken to a social group where this potential off-topic can be on-topic (so I don't have to delete posts and issue infractions).

Thank you.

Rikka calls her sister "Priestess", so I assume that Touka's employer (possible "Goddess") would be related to just how perfect Touka's movements are. We also have to consider how she uses her ladle as if it was an extension of her body.

I don't view Yuuta's treatment of Rikka as abusing but rather showing a very intimate relationship. It is to the point that Tsuyuri mistook them as childhood friends last episodes. I believe that the real closed friends are those that troll each other all the time. They are too closed to be bothered by such actions.

What you two pointed out make sense. I do wish we'll see when he call her Rikka the first time though. Lite episode to the recuse, please.

Just waiting for people to insert "dramatic violins" for the close-up of Shinka in the park.

Now that all the characters have been introduced and with the formation of the club, we're now officially past the first stage which is introduction and world building. I don't like anime that spent too much time introducing one character per episode, and by the time they done introducing all of them, it's already half way through the whole anime. It’s great to see that Kyoani didn't waste twice as much time on this stage.

As for the club, I'm not against the idea as it's a good rendezvous point for characters to meet and interact on daily bases as well as engage in club related activities, however, it seems a little bit forced when it comes to anime that doesn't center on the club itself. For this anime, I think character dynamics would appear more natural without needing the club.

Next step is likely flashing out characters and expanding their dynamics. I'm not surprise if next several episodes will focus more on one particular character. I'll be waiting to see the one that shed some light on Shinka (true?) character.

I'm fairly certain the only person who would really get the "chuuni" label treatment in real life in the cast is Dekomori's Uesaka Sumire - as she's into lolita fashion and dolls (sub-culture: check), studies Russian because she likes USSR and Russian culture and history (obscure foreign language and culture: check), and is a military weapon otaku especially of the pre-WW2 kind (fascination with "old & cool" weapons: check). Heck, when she dresses up in goth loli she looks like a real-life Kuroneko of Oreimo.

I don't there is anyone already said about this or not, but there's no doubt anymore about Shinka's true objective to join the club.
Spoiler for Shinka:

I wonder what would her weapon be? Magic book? Staff? Or maybe cards?

In a harem show like this, all the ladies have feelings for the leading man. That's pretty much how they work.

I also want the story to begin focusing more on Yuuta and Rikka's relationship, since it's quite clear that's the direction it will eventually take, and I don't want those developments to feel rushed.
Do we even know if the anime will roughly follow the story of the LN at this point or not? Is Rikka even the designated 'winner' in the anime?

I've seen this stated several times in different places and I want to refute it. This is not a harem show nor has it given any indication whatsoever outside of maybe Nibutani.

Ishihara has stated they are using the novel as a base. Given the upcoming summaries (or what I could read of them), there appears to be more novel-related content coming up. As for your second question, I direct you to the title of the show (and no, it doesn't refer to the middle-schooler).

Wait, you mean you haven't spotted not even the slightest foreshadowing of romance between Rikka and Yuuta?

BTW for a show that isn't a "harem" it sure follows the standard of "all important characters must be female excluding the MC and his male friend" which is all over the place in eroge too.

In Inouie's case being '17' for decades does put you in the ball-park, at least partially. Mind you we have only seen one aspect of the condition played out so far, I am not ruling out other ways the condition could play itself out in a case by case way.

You know, a show with a love triangle isn't necessarily a harem. I'm sure he means outside of Rikka, Nibutani is the only other character that might be romantically interested in Yuuta. More importantly, even if "all important characters" excluding the MC are female, it doesn't really mean anything unless they're all romantically interested in the MC.

It might make more sense, but I enjoy the subtle development that involves Yuuta becoming increasingly accepting of Rikka and her delusions far more than his repetitive attraction towards the "prettiest girl in school".

This isn't a harem show. It's a romantic comedy. At most, I could see a sort of triangle forming, but I think, as the story progresses, it will increasingly focus on Yuuta and Rikka's relationship.

The interviews I've read along with the title clearly seem to indicate that this is, above all, Yuuta and Rikka's romance story.

I'm pretty sure that post is only discussing the "romance" potential for those that are not Rikka, and I'd have to agree; aside from some very slight Nibutani foreshadowing, there's been absolutely nothing to indicate that Sanae or Kumin like Yuuta.

True, but it doesn't yet, and very likely won't, follow the standard of those girls actually liking the MC.

Given the title and the fact that we "see" them holding hands at the end of the OP, the romance between Yuuta and Rikka is a given. I was refering to the "harem" elements that Unknown Soldier said were present in a "show like this."

A cast that is skewed more towards females does not mean it is a harem; it simply means there are more females in the cast than males. The focal point of a harem is that the main female cast have romantic feelings for Yuuta. Only Rikka and perhaps Nibutani (as I stated) have these feelings.

Are you sure they were the ones holding hands? It might not be the case.
