Anyways I'm glad that this episode is watchable. The previous 4 was rather odd and hard to watch at times so I'm glad that it's better now.

The use of bgm along with visuals in episode 5 reminded me of the direction in yosuga no sora, while the content was a little not set up properly, I enjoyed all that scenery and the manner the dialog was interspersed.

Somehow this show is really easy to follow.

If Maeda was like this for all 5 episodes, he would be much more decent. Sure, he would have general flaws in confidence and expressing himself, but through good growth he would naturally overcome that. The pervert scale was much lower too. Granted, the unintentional (I'll give him this just because it is Niimi in question here) breast grabs in the past and present were there, but Maeda was in better form.

Now the Photography Club besides doing the general stalking are showing some concern for Maeda as a human being. Maybe there is honor among perverts. Good to see.

This episode was better than the previous one. The next few episodes need to pick it up.

I can't take the show seriously at this point.
(Not using spoiler tags since subs were out for about 24 hours or so)

Honestly, I thought this part of their relationship was handled well. It's not terribly original, but it makes sense given their history and how they developed through school. That entire search-Haruka-everywhere-except-her-home bit though....I'll agree. That was hard to take seriously.

From the episode 6 summary from the official web, it does look like it will conclude Haruka arc...
Quote:
前田一也が待つ「思い出の場所」に遙佳が現れた。昔のトラウマが、遙佳との距離を置いてしまっ た事を告白し 、昔の二人に戻った一也と遙佳。「学園祭の写真部展を見に来て欲しい!自信のある写真を展示し たい。」と誘 う一也に「絶対見に行く」と遙佳。海でのデートを経てどんどん近付く二人の距離。そしてついに 学園祭当日。 写真部展が開催され、ミスフォトジェニックが発表となるが

Spoiler for Translation:



If Haruka arc does end next episode and the series is not cancelled XD, then we get 6 remaining episodes and 6 remaining main heroines. It'll be fair for each heroine to get 1 focused episode, but then seeing episode 4 again, to be exact on this scene:


I get the feeling if the remaining 6 episodes only cover the other 3 girls closest to the camera, which is Mai, Aki, and Nonoka. Since those three are also the girl which got more focus on the first 4 episodes. And the quota fits too, 3 girls gets 2 episodes each just like Haruka for total 6 remaining episodes. But yeah, that would be unfair for Hikari, Rina, and Tomoe

Yeah, it's understandable how boys (and girls) at that age are really mindful of being subject of gossip/rumor, especially bad one. It can be stressful for them, heck adults can feel that too on workplace. The anime didn't really show it on the beginning since Kazuya and Haruka interaction seems pretty normal, but on the game (and Photo Kano Sweet Snap manga) Kazuya is more obvious to distance himself to Haruka and when they talk Kazuya is always nervous.

And for the search, I do agree it's quite exaggerated and unnecessary...
Spoiler for comparison from the game:

I actually wouldn't mind this. Tomoe and Hikari haven't had a lot of screen time and as cute as Rina is, she's one of the more generic characters. Only question is whether they'll go for omnibus format ala Amagami SS, or if they'll go down the harem/no progress route.

Well in terms of quality that's gotta be the biggest whiplash I've ever seen. And here I was thinking it would be the same crap thanks to the panty shot right at the start.

It's not as if the story was amazing or anything. In fact it was pretty standard really, but the atmosphere and direction was top notch stuff. If only there was some actual build up to it, rather than four episodes of ridiculous crap. As it stands it was hard to understand where the drama was coming from so a lot of impact was lost there.

Here's hoping the Haruka route is going to actually continue all the way until the end of the show instead of just the end of the next episode. I'm not holding my breath though.

It's too bad the series focused all on one character. I rather liked the way Amagami handled things, showing the path that would entwine the MC's destiny with each girl separately.

Usually there's something about the main character that is apparent the girls like about him. A personality trait or something physically attractive about him.
In Photokano, there is nothing about the main character that is worth their affection.
I wonder if that's a good thing or a bad thing... It's kinda insulting to all the viewers even!
..........................
Meh, now that i've made it this far i just wanna see how it ends. I've given up on trying to figure out what kind of speciality maeda have that explains WHY so much chicks drop their panties for him... i dont see whats attractive about some noob with a random camera.

So MC transforms from a notorious blackmailer to a serious lover boy....

Yeah, right. After episodes of blackmailing and fanservice, the studio decided to change the tone of the anime completely. How do they expect the viewers to take this episode seriously? The drama feels so forced I cringed throughout the entire episode.

Let's see. The first few episodes take the general harem route in order to introduce all the girls, and from there on each girl will be featured in 2 or 3 episodes? I am interested to see how they will structure the rest of the anime after this episode.

Episode 4 ( forgive my eng XD )

I can officially say that this anime is a waste porn XD

The atmosphere there is a whole, but in the end there is nothing but the very little ecchi

Then this anime in the shortage of budget you see one kilometer long XD From animations little aggressive and inexperienced, the opening (never seen na openingo with effect from movie maker LOL), up to the OST ... that ... god is ridiculous XD half episode here have ALWAYS used stess OST, which also is the song of the opening lol

In short, an anime with few pretensions, but ... that is ... gamble the game! I think it is also nice, but this anime is the epitome of mediocrity.

I now me finish it because I promised myself to look less of dropping souls as possible and also to see me to make me the bad culture na ... how to say ... "Know your friends, but you know better your enemies" XD

I can quickly admit that the manga is waaaay better than this. I had high hopes for it since I read the manga (although he's still retarded at times) and now feel so disappointed. On the other hand, I enjoyed the music!

Kazuya already accidentally gropped girls when he was a kid. His harem powers awakened early.

The latest episode wasn't as bad as the others, but it's hard to get invested at this point. The series should have been like that from the start. I find it out they're doing Haruka's arc first since she seemed to be the main girl.
