The source of all this drama was actually Tsukushi's desire to marry her little sister...? I have to say I didn't see that one coming. At all. I was flabbergasted when she revealed the reason behind her actions. I feel dumb for taking it so seriously

Tsukushi turned out to be far more entertaining than I anticipated. Loved how she totally bought Youkodera's lie about his twin brother. Her extreme infatuation with her sister also makes her very endearing. There's not enough yuri incest around so this is one couple I can get behind. Furthermore, I completely understand why she fell in love with Tsukiko. She's absolutely adorable. And yep, I think I've finally made up my mind: Tsukiko is the one I'm taking home.

Tsukiko's completely lack of expression makes it very interesting (and harder) to interpret her feelings. For once, we can't exactly blame the main character for being oblivious. I think Yokodera hurt her quite a bit this week. She obviously has some feelings for him and didn't want to be sister-zoned. Curious to see where this is going.

BTW, did anyone else notice that Tsukiko makes cat-shaped stains when she wet the bed?

"I don't even know where to start."

Not sure I quite agree with those who've called onee-san a siscon, at least in the classic sense. I think it's been pretty apparent since episode 2 that she's probably the biggest goddamned airhead in the entire show, and as she herself explained, her whole (ill-conceived) plan was based on myriad misapprehensions, including the one where she thought that the only way she could keep a promise to be "together forever" would be marriage. I didn't see anything to indicate a specifically romantic interest in Tsukihi, though I guess this is anime, so we can't rule it out entirely. More likely though, it seemed to me like a product of her flaky but sincere devotion to her sister.

Somehow, the fact that Tsukihi can't express how upset she is by Yokodera's tacit rejections just makes it all the more devastating to watch. She's playing my heart like a fiddle.

When the twist was revealed, my first reaction was "how stupid!" But then I just went on enjoying every minute of what followed. Onee-san is now a much more enjoyable character than she was. Her stupidity is marvellous. And Tsukiko assumes the dominant role between the two of them, which is nice. And we still get some pretty heavy emotional drama going on in Tsukiko's head (and hopefully soon in the MC's, too). And the moe just keeps on coming. Ogura Yui may now have a signature character.

Tsukushi and Cuune would make a great pair. Knowing that Ms. King of Steel is closer to Akane Akaza in terms of characterization actually makes me like her more. Plus it lets Yukari Tamura express both her slightly different vocal range and her usual vocal range when she goes into love-love-Tsukiko mode.

I find this anime a lot more enjoyable imagining how Tsukiko would act in situations if she had her emotions xD especially this week.

Tsukushi having a Sis-con? It was so random! I also would like to see Tsukiko reacting after what her sister just said.

I think even if she could show emotions on her face, the actual reaction she had spoke volumes. All she needed to do was /facepalm.

Nah. To me, Steel King just fell off the cliff. Now, it is revealed that she's a total basket case. So makes me wonder -- what did she wish for, that costed her sanity?

Tsukiko's reaction basically screamed, "Shoot me now...."

Haha. Welp, this adaptation's pacing and direction has fallen off a cliff. Gonna have to revise my expectations for this series downwards. We're about a single episode from the anime passing the scanlated manga in terms of content though, so I guess I'll keep up just for that.

She probably wished "I wish I had a closer relationship with my sister" or something along those lines and the cat decided to give her an ironic/cruel punishment maybe, or just took it to an extreme? Just as a change of pace since it seems like it always grants wishes the way the wisher imagines them.

..................................

All that drama literally went down the flush

My guess was more or less spot on Tsukiko's reason why she thought she didn't want to show her emotions easily, it's just that Tsukushi is just so bonkers in the head it didn't actually matter

Also, poor Azusa got even more friendzoned than before. A sad-puppy Azusa needs a hug!

And if that's the case -- alright. As a compromise, I'll buy into this lesbian incest thing, IF that's the explanation. But gosh dammit. There's just way too much incest going on - in various series.

Wrong, Ririchiyo was Hidaka Rina.

Notable roles of Ogura Yui so far can be considered Alice in Kamisama no Memochou and Toki in Saki Achiga Hen. In both she used more or less the same intonation she uses for Tsukiko.
