Summary, but again, clearly not reliable at 100%
Episode 9: Summary and screencaps
It will be corrected with subs soon enough.

Very Very powerful episode again. No melodrama, nothing.
Simply, determination of friends, and very well built progression of it. I believe DEEN was even able to create a huge mood about Satoko's case, even more powerful than tatarigoroshi-hen. Dunno if it was because of fanboyism, but i was pretty moved how Keiichi was rallying people to smash the petty stoicism of the agency staff.

Truely, the battle is set, and i'm reserving the 10 for the next episode, which will be the full extent of EPICNESS, especiall from KOOL K.

EDIT : screencaps are available now.

Another great epsiode. It's good to see that they actually spaced this segment (of the story) out, I was worried that it would've been rushed. Nice work throughout, and the reception lady is a beauty.

Only thing too bad they had to cut short Keiichi's speech, in which Kameda surrendered too fast. I was hoping they would save more about the Tsudere and the 2D vs 3D talk.

Yeah, it seems like they really wanted to make this episode stick out.

Rika said she was going to give up if this world doesn't work out, eh? Uh oh!

Eh. I wasn't a fan of the episode at all. They're working together and everybody wants to save Satoko. I get it. I really didn't need 20 straight minutes of Keiichi giving a generic "if we combine our powers, we can create Voltron and save Satoko."

Caps of the endless line of speech-giving heads.

Satoko's behavior in Tatarigoroshi-hen can be explained by the "disease" they talked about this epsiode...

And of course, that's only the beginning.

Not relevant to what's going on at the moment? It's reason she just had a break down in class a few minutes before.
Spoiler for for the blatently obvious now:

My 2 cents :

I believe the fact "nothing new happened" in this episode is somewhat what the episode SHOULD HAVE shown from the very start.
As the situation was set last week, they obviously CAN'T resolve the matter out of the blue, or with a frigging deus ex machina. Instead, they sticked on the game script: Keiichi and everyone else, trying to save satoko, wave by wave.
This is a very big point of it, since it shows how determined they are, and how it is realist, in a sense that, it isn't a "i found the ultimate answer!" from nowhere etc.

Keiichi's abilities were also greatly depicted, and they are, much like their interventions, by wave, and its effectiveness grows in a crescendo manner.

you see in this episode it isn't only a fight against dumb protocol and stoicism, and another factor is in the account as well. And meanwhile, the episode stresses on the URGENCY of the matter, as Satoko is almost reaching the "NO TURNING BACK" breakdown point she has get through in Tatarigoroshi-hen. (wich make me hate teppei even more)
If you add that keiichi knows about Satoko's issue, it gives them more reason to beat the crap out of the child agency indifferent stance, as Satoko's situation is beyond "cautious". She is literaly in danger, that is.

and finally, but not the least: Rika's resolution. it is not hope, it is not despair or anything reckless. It is pure fighting spirit.

The whole episode is extremely meaningful (at least to me), and set the situation, character development and plot, despite the lack of "actions". (though i don't see that as a problem)

It's important to see the difficulty in overturning the issue. Otherwise you would say "if it was so simple then why didn't they do that in Tatarigoroshi?" Yeah, it's kind of boring with not much development but it's necessary. You'll appreciate it more when we're past it.

Next epsiode is worth looking forward to (from the preview), after all we get to see:

Satoko riding on the train alone, Kimiyoshi's farmland, and Shion without uniform

i was wondering if wasn't completely mad... i guess i wasn't (as i could heard Satoko on the train (Densha? i was WTF? ), and the uniform... let's not mention about the weird sonozaki juice, with nipa nipa... )
the previews never cease to amaze me in randomness XD

Rika notices that as the closest one to Satoko, she should actually lend her hand in saving the girl.

About time. Sure was weird seeing Rena and Keiichi tag-teaming in their persuasive effort and Rika saying nothing to Satoko during the classroom scene. I would expect that from the usual depressed Rika, but not the one who declared she did not want to give up last episode.

There were some parts I couldn't understand, so I'm waiting for subs.

Wow.
Great episode, though the pace was a little slower, it progressed at a good rate. We can feel the stress and determination of everyone to help Satoko break out of her turmoil... I can feel next week is going to be huge.
