I highly doubt this will end up like school days it seems like it will stay on a happy note but just add hints to a troubled past before it finally gets revealed. I do agree with you on the facepalm i think i paused it and walked to the kitchen to find some food after I saw hoshino's mirror.

lol like the part at the end with which you described Aoi's annoying voice cutting into the whole drama.. Win!

I can't believe this thread has had some fifteen pages worth of posts in the week-and-a-bit since I last posted. A few general comments:
  • I doubt Sana has attempted suicide. This series just isn't suitably dark enough to deal with an issue like that. The fear of blood probably has a different explanation, maybe even a simple one as some have eluded though (although that does make it superfluous to the plot), and my theory is that he was probably in an accident or something like that.
  • School Days? Higurashi? Goddamn it. Even more unlikely than the above possibility for pretty much the same reason as I gave above.

    I can't believe you expected her to be anything else.

Ep 3

Anyway, I still have minimal expectations for this, and the reason why is that, other than Nanaka, the characters in this are terrible. And yes, I'm of the opinion that Nanaka is an exception, which is a complete 180 from my opinion before this ep. The reason: we actually saw some level of complexity from her. Yes, her changes were sudden and jarring, but they're at least somewhat explained by events in the plot. Her initial bitchiness still isn't explained at all, and while I'll hold it against this series if it doesn't eventually get explained, for now I'm sated, because she at least resembles a somewhat realistic character now. Unlike the rest of the cast, who are either boring or annoying caricatures used for attempted comedy that falls on its face *cough* Aoi *cough*.

Nanaka is the only character in this show that I find interesting or remotely realistic. I simply don't find any of the other characters interesting, particularly Sana who is such a typically bland doormat that it hurts (even in spite of the blood thing, since it still doesn't change the fact that his personality is boring and cliched). And not having likable characters is, IMO, a cardinal sin in a romance anime which pretty much lives and dies by how much the audience can relate or sympathize with the protagonists. But my interest still lingers slightly, because 1/6 interesting characters is still better than 0/6 interesting characters, and I do want to find out exactly what makes Nanaka tick. It's a clumsy character analysis, because of things like her sudden transition from Suzuka-like tsun-tsun-tsun-tsun-tsun-dere-ism to just plain tsundere-ism, but it's still a character analysis nonetheless, and that's the type of thing that keeps me watching shows like this. But Aoi is just pathetic and, honestly, Sana isn't all that much better.

LOLOL

Well the series have pretty generic characters i give you that but imo they arent that bad (oki aoi is annoying but the rest are okey and provide some cheap laughs).

I agree with your Nanaka comments - i didnt see any problems with her change in attitude and in fact i am glad that we didnt have the usual "boy chases girl over the next 5 eps" scenario ^^
she hasnt really changed her basic character either (which is to come out as being silent, mature bla bla).

Ah I was responding to the suggestion that she slapped first and then Nanaka followed up.

Perhaps we should request a forum for this series and put it with the other "current series"?

So we got the thread moved to the current series. I didnt expect the show to be so popular, actually, there are quite a number of alternatives that I'm interested in, too

Well I think most people do enjoy the old skool type of series time to time. And checked this series and finding out there is enough mystery and things happening to keep them watching. It's still isn't anything that great though. I won't bet on it that it will be that great though. Still a nice series at this point though.
