Sub forums will be needed as we are almost hitting the 1k mark when it's only past episode 3 or 4

The decision to give this show its own subforum is a no-brainer... this is the show that people either love or love to hate.

But if it doesn't get one, oh well - there are bigger atrocities in this world.

Well I think if they really tried hard there could have been more fanservice in this episode...I mean sheesh I think I went a whole 5 minutes at one point without any T&A honestly...

Ah well the nice twist at the end made up for it heh. Poor sekai should inform makoto what the meaning of "High Maintenance" is before he got involved with Kotonoha.

Hopefully next episode we can budget out alittle bit of the FS to storyline instead.

Drama is about complexity, all the various shades of gray in what are generally black-and-white situations, understanding character's motivations and caring about the consequences they encounter. I don't see any of that happening when the two leads (let's not forget Katsura, who is equally bland, IMO, and seemingly not much smarter than Makoto) are one-dimensional, selfish and stupid.
Sekai is coming off as pretty sympathetic. She likes Makoto but is sincerely trying to help him hook up with Kotonoha. With the ending of episode 3, I was reminded of Bokura ga Ita. Where the friend essentially was torn between staying out and going after the female lead but couldn't unless he felt he could make her happier.

I'm not denying that that there is a lot of melodrama and more to come but it could be interesting in its own way.

This show getting its own subforum is within the realm of possibilities Not going to promise anything for the moment, but such a possibility is being looked in to.

I don't think "high-maintenance" is the correct word for Kotonoha, since what she wants from Makoto is fairly simple and basic if you think about it. The two of them just don't understand each other at all, and are absolutely HORRIBLE at communicating. Quite sad if you think back to what the two of them said at the end of Ep 2.

The fan service was awesome... Radish must have realized more skin = more business with their uniforms

^ hmm...I wonder..

For me I think that even Kotonoha doesn't know what she wants from Makoto, because he has tried to get closer to her but she always backs out and runs away. So, I can understand why Makoto said that at the end of ep.3
Spoiler for Episode 3...:

I hope that the show starts to revolve around Sekai more, because Kotonoha and Makoto are making this annoying and boring.

Sekai's rather irrational "help Makoto win another girl's affection while clearly being completely in love with him herself" isn't exactly winning her points either, though. So far she's annoying me just as much as the other two with her complete denial that she likes Makoto both to herself and to others. The characters seem to be already beyond redemption after the third episode, so right now I'm just vying for even more irrationality and silly actions to build more angst and frustration so I can enjoy seeing the characters wallow in suffering (which really seems to actually be the point of the show right now).

Finally, someone who gets it. There is a difference between utter garbage and superbly crafted garbage - and this show is clearly in the latter category. It takes real talent and creativity to make characters who are so laughably pathetic.

It's one of those shows that's so bad it's good - kind of reminds me of those American evening soap operas.

if anything it should be kotonoha who thinks that makoto is the annoying one...the kissing on the cheek scene pissed me off not due to kotonoha but makoto's inital and after expression...

Right now yeah from episodes one and two it's pretty much good; I just wished that I didn't get spoiled by certain information. I'm not sure how big of a chance this is, but I'd rather see a normal romance/drama in this series.
