Yeah I completely agree. Episodes 13 and 14 was pretty good progression of the relationship. Maybe I'm just harsh because I've been used to seeing good quality episodes that episode 15 seemed a bit...slow. I don't mind love triangles, but I prefer it when there are some significant mutual attraction between two of the three (see: School Days, KimiNozo) so anime that has the same romantic mood as Love Hina and Canvas 2 are hard to get through for me. In the end though I will like it, so it's just a personal feeling.

Seeing Kazuma open up i believe, like Deathkillz says will require Ayano to have a deeper knowledge of Kazuma's past. Ep 14 already suggests that Ayano only currently has a very shallow understanding of Kazuma, as she was unaware of alot of things that has happened to Kazuma over the years he's been away from the Kannagi family evident by scenes such as:

Spoiler for ep14:


That said, it's obvious that though Ayano is showing obvious romantic interest towards Kazuma but her understanding of him is too superficial at this point in time for Kazuma to even consider developing a deeper relationship with her. Like deathkillz says, it will probably take a deeper understanding of Kazuma's past in order for the two especially from Kazuma's side to connect in a bond that would eventually lead to a requited romance.

I hope Kazuma hasn't got any (love)feelings for Ayano, because they are relatives.

I will hate this series if Ayano was to end up with Kazuma!

Katharine is quite arrogant but she would fit Kazuma better. Well but this won't happen anyway, since this series is to predictable.

Kinda boring now. NO progress, nothing at all.

I will read the manga and hopfeully it is better than the anime!

1. there cousins and japan it's perfectly normal for them to end up together. And, 2. there is not a manga the series is based of novels.

Ups, i want to say light novel ofc...........

Pff.........Ayano doesn't fit for Kazuma at all. That's all i can say.

I will drop this series anyway. To much 08/15 stuff.

one of the reason's i got into this series is because of the Ayano x Kazuma relationship which i hope gets resolved by the end. (i mean they end up together)

those are all really good points. Although I'm not surprised on ayano's lack of knowledge But I do hope she'll get smarter as the series progresses(I think she has to if she wants kazuma to be more serious with her).It's all going to happen eventually so we'll just wait and see.

Strictly speaking there is a manga. (I believe it's running in Asuka, but don't quote me on that.) It's only a couple of chapters at this point. The anime is definitely based on the novels though.

I wouldn't hold that against Ayano. After all, I have a better understanding of Kazuma's past than Ayano, but even I was beginning to wonder if he had any clothes other than the shirt, jeans, and jeans jacket he's always wearing. At this point, the person with the largest wardrobe in the series appears to be Ren.

well we could say the same thing of Ayano who new she had that dress since she only had wore the school uniform. This is most evident in the amusment park ep when all three clothes she had on the bed were the same and was the school uniform.

Iv been wondering the past few episodes Ren has been stuck with the job of massaging Ayano's pop back, did he draw the short straw or what?

A bit of dramatic irony here, that we know alot about Kazuma than Ayano. Apart from that i feel we really didn't know much about Kazuma either if everyone thought he only had those those clothes in which he always wears.

True that throughout the series we've gotten brief glimpses of his past and several outburst that could indicate something about him past. The problem is though, like Ayano, the audience doesn't have a deeper understanding of Kazuma either. From our standpoint he is cool, calm and slightly arrogant, but we know that isn't all Kazuma is and that's why i find his character to be interesting.

Kazuma is what i like to call a cool hero with a tragic past.

bascially hes what you call "a hero with a dark past" type character...what we see now isnt the real kazuma but in fact a false mask he is wearing to decieve his fellow "companions" such as ayano...my suspicion is that the real kazuma is a lot more deep and "soft" that what we are seeing now...all that needs to be done is for ayano to find out his truth and he will turn into hot melted butter in no time...

i cant wait to see kazuma breakdown and cry like a man should!
