We're going in circles with the Touya discussion here. We need some good progress for the remaining episode of this season so we have something a little more different to talk about for six agonizing months.

You are absolutely right hence me saying he is weak minded character and allows even the wind to influence his decision. He is not living his life he is just along for the ride everyone chooses his path for him and he just walks it.

I thought Yayoi was asking whether or not he wanted to break the agreement between herself and Touya

Question.. is the anime following the game's plot closely, if at all? It was an eroge so its safe to say the story took a back seat. I'm just curious if people who've played or know about the game will have a decent idea of what will or could happen (like with School Days). Please answer w/o spoiling me.. thanks, lol.

I actually think it is following the game fairly closely, but that's only by checking the CG previously. Haven't played through the game itself.

I agree with your thoughts about everything. Great analysis of the episode, specialy the part about Misaki and Akira. If she really wanted him, she wouldn't mind spending time with him. That was what the writers wanted to show us about them. I project a break up between them before the last episode.

In comparison to the game, I'd say it's following it pretty close. There are more details that are being shown in regards to each characters, and some details have been added. (like the relationship between Touya and his father) But in regards to the story, major events, and motivations for each characters, it's the same.

I guess WA is eroge in terms of pure definition, but I wouldn't really classify it as one per se. It's really character and story driven game, like Kanon and Air. In fact, I could really do without the ero part for games like this.

The discussion about Yayoi has been pretty interesting, since Rina and Yayoi were my two favorite characters in the game. Let's just say there are going to be details that will be revealed about Yayoi (most likely in second season) that will change some views about her.

I'm kinda surprised while people are pointing out that Touya is being weak, (or even a scumbag for cheating on Yuki) they haven't noticed what Eiji is doing. To me, Eiji is the real scumbag in WA. At least with Touya, he is vulnerable and weak and have girls throwing themselves at him. While I'm not condoning cheating on your mate, it's at least possible to relate to Touya when he never gets to see or talk to his supposed girlfriend while running into women that are in love with him all the time.

Alright, thanks for the answer. I wasn't sure just how much of a story is involved in this game or any game of this genre since well.. its porn, lol.

Eiji is a real jack ass, that is for sure. He is a creepy too, just in the way he handles himself. Plus I think he gets off on Yuki's raw vocal. I don't know, nor do I want to, what happens in the game but I wouldn't mind if they give him some sort of bad ending.

This, frankly, shows you have very little (none) actual knowledge about the games of "said genre", and are basing this assumption on nothing but the "ero" word, which doesn't say anything about the source material besides it having 18+ content in it. Should you do some research on things, you would find out that eroge, especially ones that get turned in to anime, of which WA is no exception, are largely character driven stories that just happen to have sex as a natural part of the relationships that develop. We are talking about hours upon hours of "normal" story context, and generally about two or three 18+ content scenes. Of course there are ones on the opposite side of spectrum as well, but those are not the ones you generally see turned to anime. This (Or most of eroge based anime) was never a story about sex. It was a story about character interactions and relationships that just happens to have sex at some point. So, yes - there was plenty of content in WA to go along with, don't go judging the whole deal based on misconceptions circling around one of the source material labels

Arika is so useless how could he just stand there and watch Misaki get stabbed. He didn't even try to counterattack or restrain the guy
He practically lost any ground he had
