a very good episode 2.

lol at Misaki career survey

The way of Misaki express her love was supreme - -' , but to think that Jin not even move a bit (consider he so many girlfriends?), but from his expression I think he do love Misaki.

I want to take care Mashiro as well! jealous for Sorata. btw, Sorata and Mashiro are a good pair, they both very matched.

Misaki and Jin look very adorable. It's kinda unfortunate that they're rather indecisive and possessing inferiority complex towards each other which prevent their relationship from developing even further. I wonder why this kind of story tend to use childhood friends or just friends as excuse to creating walls between two individuals which basically are in love towards each other.

At least the comedy is utterly hilarious. Still don't know about the actual story, though Sorata does show a lot of promise.

I get the feeling that Jin seeing himself as "normal", being indecisive, and having an "inferiority complex" (although I completely disagree about Misaki having such feelings) are all interconnected. Basically, for some reason Jin does not feel worthy of Misaki's talent, meaning while he might be a great writer in his mind he is not up to the genius level of Misaki. You might say Jin believes himself to be below Misaki and thus holding her back, which feeds back to the general avoiding the issue.

Big voice. Lots of talent. Stage mother. I think this is one of several good OP/ED songs this season.
Ohh okay. I remember hearing something about her recently but since I've been a bit inactive regarding anime and anime news/media for the past few months I hadn't known. She sounds great though. Hopefully she'll go on to sing more great op/ed for the future. Thanks for the info.

I feel bad for Misaki. She clearly likes/loves Jin, but for his own reasons does not accept her affections and feelings. I wonder how she feels about Jin sleeping with other girls.

2 episodes in and I love this show to bits.

I could recap the greatness of this show episode by episode, but really to me it comes down to this; this show stays faithful to the common themes that generally work well in this category, and excels in the small details and quirks where most other shows (in this category) usually fall flat on their face.

As for the moments themselves, they've been pointed out by various posts already, and I agree with them all! Though I am a fan of side-couples, and having one here only increases my love for the show. It also helps that Jin is actually one of the few playboy type characters I actually enjoy watching, and his other half (Misaki) is absolutely fantastic. I lied, I'm going to re-quote something after all. Her "WATASHI BE AMBITIOUS" was laugh-uncontrollably awesome.

Good times all around, I say.

So that brings me hope when I was all but despair with no interest in either party with the first episode.
My first thought was why does he sleep around when he has such a girl "waiting" him... but I can guess:
  1. He will be unable to be the dominant party in the relationship
  2. He is afraid that he will hurt her

Speaking of Okada, I do find it ironic that some people would say that this show is 'anti-feminist' considering she has a reputation of 'castrating' the male gender in the shows she writes for.
Okada is not writing the show, just arranging the original material into 20 minute episodes... otherwise it wouldn't be watchable

That performance still left me torn between the sex-bomb and the childhood friend who is not a true childhood friend

Actually, Mashiro is the only character I find uninteresting after 2 episodes, even the male MC seems to have more depth then her.

I rarely comment on VA's for shows but this time I have to give it to Yoshitsugu for the the way he's voicing Sorata in this show. He really knows how to bring out the tsukkomi in Sorata and it's so downright amusing that it became one of my reasons to watch this show.

Ok after this episode, I gonna enjoy this series beta couple for the time being. MisakixJin are entertaining to watch. As for the main couple, I'll reserve my judgement and see how things develop.

P.S. Love the ending.

Man, interactions between Sorata and Mashiro kinda reminds me of Tomoki and Ikaros in SoraOto. Mashiro's great innocence leads to great comedy while Sorata just transformed into the world's most frustated dude.

Too bad there was only a little fanservice (Manservice was killing me).

I find myself loving the ED as well, it doesn't start off as anything special but when the chorus kicks in you'd be hard pressed to find me not in a state of pure joy.

Manservice for great equality !

Waiting for the moment Mashiro say out loud, "I've have experience his body and found it compatible o_o"

Aoyama would be speaking Kansai all week...

Let's hope Nanami smartens up and stays patient throughout Mashiro's slow talking.

Yes, the chorus is my favorite part too, it makes the song so much better and I love how she sings the lyrics.

Oh my god, so much kinky and pervy dialogue, most of it bad. It's like whoever joined the writing team did it to write softcore porn or something. *cough* Okada *cough* I kid! Maybe.

The first half of episode 2 was quite painful to watch. I simply do not like what's her face, despite the fact that she provides most of the desired ass-service, but there's too much focus on giant chest lumps anyways. it's just really unfunny and overdone scenes. I understand Mashiro's supposed to be a eccentric savant, but it's stretching it beyond something I can really accept.

The second half of the episode is different. It's still kinda under kinky sex fantasy, but that's more like it. It was actually rather cute and ultimately silly enough for me to ignore the atrocious dialogue. In some cases it's so bad it's good.

And so they figure out the nature of Mashiro, and hopefully to better things. And beyond that we can find out who she really is, and hopefully it's more interesting that way.

Anyhow, I lol'd so it can't all be so bad.

Dengeki pays better

No, the Novel is ending in 2 more volumes so they're wrapping it up in oneshot.
