Which is the reason Kotoura thought it was best she left.

Kotoura knows full well that Manabe doesn't care about rushing head first into danger getting hurt or worse for her sake and can't bare the thought of him doing it again. She just dosen't feel she deserves that kind of love or loyalty.

Kotoura-san is a wonderful series so far, and it's high up on my list of possible imports from Japan. I want to see more! ^^;

The preview spoiled it!
If you watch a preview, then expect to be spoiled. You might not be, but it should always be expected. I don't watch previews because I don't like spoilers. I don't want to know what is or is not going to happen. Of course, I've now been slightly spoiled about episode 4, but I can't do too much more, other than avoiding all discussions.

I think that nearly every series that I've looked at so far this season is one that I knew nothing about until I started watching. I didn't know about plots, art/character designs, cast or production staff. By not doing any research and not trying every series, I definitely miss some good shows, but 'oh well'. Sometimes, after several weeks, I'll look for info about the series that I haven't tried, but I don't do that too often.

Isn't that sarcasm? When was the last time she sang decently?

Still, that Moritani hits hard for going too far! What a stupid bitch!

The past episode was charming and a bit sad and disturbing at times, but brings forth more questions and makes me more intrigued. And some of the characters are SO CUTE!!

I wonder if her mother will make an appearance later on in the series given that she's in the opening.

welp, that's a great 3 episode series.

ima gonna post my full series review later.




jokes aside, those three episodes had been phenomenal. Such a massive darkhorse of the season, I don't think many of us saw this coming.
My favourite scene is the "interrogation" where you can see the barebones of Moritani's guilt and regret deliciously presented. Such joy (in the words of Kotomine)

I think he was just confused because in the OP, Kotoura was singing! though it's actually Megumi Nakajima singing the OP sing.

On the other hand I think she sang her part in Katyusha well enough in Girls and Panzer.

Dark Wing already replied with what I wanted to say.
This has nothing to do with her thinking her friends will blame her for this.

I've seen behavior like Kotoura's multiple times in real life which is why I find it quite understandable and not a "device".

MANabe. The manliest, most GAR Rom Com Protagonist in quite a long time. He'd be right at home as a Shounen hero.

Or as a Shoujo male lead

He's got nothing on the likes of Usui from Maid sama

For a yandere, she seems to have a conscience, when yanderes never have it due to them being absolutely insane. I personally just think she's just stupid.

But yeah, Moritani is probably the BIGGEST epic fail osananajimi I have ever seen, in the decade+ years I'm watching anime for the childhood friend. So yeah that's saying something.

Thankfully in contrast, Yuriko/Daichi showcases some of the very best osananajimi moments ever, so at least there's a saving grace for me in this show.

I'd probably also lean more to being stupid. That and just letting her emotions control her. Is angry so hires a hit squad, but then is upset at the idea of Manabe being seriously hurt...As much as she happens to plot about doing things, she really isn't thinking very hard about the consequences.

I was recently chatting with a buddy of mine on another forum and he gave me an interesting piece of information cut out of the anime.

wow, this anime is probably best this season. I didn't it being like this. I thought it was going to be comedy from now on, but the romance is pretty nice. I'm loving it.
