Second episode was a lot better than the first. The first episode was only funny near the end, but this episode was decent throughout the whole 22 minutes or so. Not exactly at the hilarious level, but at least I see that this anime won't be completely boring. Check episode 3 and see if they can keep this up...

Poor Tatsuki... Seriously must have hurt...

ED is as out-of-place as ever.

I found myself smiling throughout episode two and laughing out loud a few times. That can't be bad. The vocal pacing is still extremely weird, but it seems to be working. Maybe it's just sympathy for Ochiai Yurika, but I'm liking Suzu. I'm liking them all, I guess I have to say. No masterpiece, but enjoyable so far.

I can feel for Tatsuki now. I feel visually and mentally raped while watching ep2. What the f**k they did with animation quality this time around? And story-wise... I guess I had expected too much.

This has probably one of the best ensemble casts of the whole year.

Either way, I liked the first episode quite a bit, and it even ended up surprising me! (And here I was thinking this season was full of generic shows).

And mad props for including Orikasa Fumiko and Fujiwara Keiji in the same series. Infinite possibilities for winrar comedy duos (as exemplified in the last few minutes of the first episode).

Ok now that was pretty damn fun...The episode defiantly proved to me that it was the premise from the first episode not so much the cast that caused me to feel bored at times.

Hopefully they can maintain this level throughout the run.

Definitely an improvement on the first episode. This kind of show has been done better before, but its enjoyable enough where I'll most likely watch it all the way through.

I'm not exactly sure what to think about this anime so far. Torako was annoying as heck throughout the whole entire episode and her personality is not very appealing. I feel for Tatsuki having to put up with Torako. All in all, the episode was rather boring. I didn't laugh or find it interesting.

After a couple episodes, this one looks like a winner. I like all the characters and the humor is right up my alley, I'm sold.

Suzu is my favorite character of the kage four so far, I loled when she said "cafeteria".

I think that's where the comedy comes from. Sorta like Tomo-chan in Azumanga Daioh. She was TOTALLY easy to hate upon, but she was like the foil of the comedy. I'm guessing Torako basically is that comedic foil.


With me, the first ep was a very smooth introduction of characters (since it all came from a series of unfortunate events, hence very little of it felt forced for me) and it was a cute little intro. With this ep, it went into a full comedy mode. I love the pop sports references. So blatant and nonsensical.

I thought Ayu was the main character and I liked her narration in the first episode. It's sad to see her being flung into the background like most quiet characters.

Somehow it manages to hold my attention and keep me entertained despite the utter lack of plot so far. I'm quite surprised.

I actually think that it fits rather well with the upbeat style of the series. Unlike the usual SoL vibes I feel, this series also adds some spice into it in some weird way (or at least not in a traditional sense where even funny scene revolved around a fairly slow and relaxed pace).

ep 2

Ep 2 didn't do it for me like the first ep did. It was basically just the same thing over and over again.

Second episode was boring and not too funny for me. Episode three will probably determine if I keep with the show or not.

I think the repeat mode was what made things funny for me. If they're gonna go by convention, at least live and die by it. It's sorta like the repeat-mode Family Guy sometimes has, but just not as severe.

As for Tatsuki, I definitely agree that she is THE reason to watch. It's just so fun to see her get teased and try to be all high-class queen about it. With that kind of princess-voice, you just WANT to see her get smacked in the face.

Just watched the first two episodes.

It was okay.

Ayu (moe), Suzu, and Tarako are likable, and I smiled a couple of times.

Don't know how motivated I'll be to continue watching unless I start hearing a lot of good things about future episodes, though. (or at least about an increased focus fanservice or something)
