Ah duh I didnt think of it that way

Also since the Landlady commented that Yaichi's been acting odd since Masa showed up, you really have to wonder why Yaichi had him join to begin with?

Because Yaichi wants a friend. Masa is the closest thing to a friend that Yaichi has other than the brothel owner.

This is really getting intense. I was absolutely gobsmacked to see Yaichi actually lose his temper like that.

I think he's simply one of those people who has to state the obvious but now he's comfortable enough with the Leaves that it doesnt bother him when they say he's being blunt.

@Shiro, Im with Kanon, I wasnt a big fan of the long hair which is why I didnt comment on it

I think Yaichi's boss knew thats how Yaichi would handle the situation so thats why he had him do it. He knew the others would be too "gentle" I guess.

Yeah, that's probably the reason the Boss asked him to do it, but it was still shocking to see.

So, so bloody brilliant, this show:

This series really is a wonder. Rarely have a seen a world so richly realized in a one-cour series - characters so deeply complex, so unhurried and patient a storytelling style. Tomomi Mochizuki is established as a genius in my book - and this series' connections to the first arc of Zettai Shounen are more clear than ever.

Yaichi still has long hair - it's just that he has it in a topknot.

This was definitely the best anime episode this week, at least amongst the series I'm watching. Can't wait to see how they wrap this arc up, though the way it's heading makes me wonder about the manga, because they surely can't have covered all the material that's out right? Not to mention that it's ongoing...

The manga is ending in the July 24th issue of IKKI.

Wah! already? So I'm guessing 8 volumes total. Ep 7 seems to correspond to the end of volume 2...which would mean they'll only have covered half of it?

Well put. Nothing I've seen in a long while has this combination of a thoroughly adult and complex story with a presentation that keeps it vividly interesting at every moment.

The story may be told "patiently," but it never loses its sharpness of focus. This show is a good argument in favor of 12-episode series, it seems to me. That's comparing it with Mochizuki's Zettai Shounen and Touka Gettan (which he wrote). I loved both of those shows, but they could both have been tighter.

In my view, Zettai Shounen would have been a better series overall if it had ended after 13 episodes (i.e., the "Tama Arc"). I didn't dislike the second half but the exposition really didn't add anything vital to the story for me. In hindsight I'd have been happier if it had ended after the taut, wonderfully mystery-shrouded first arc.

The connection to Zettai Shounen was one of the reasons I picked this series up to begin with. The atmosphere that permeates both shows is so rich, it really gives me a feeling of these being real places. Plot-wise I would have to agree that Five Leaves has more impact by going straight for this drama then wrapping up.

Another show that made a big impression on me because it managed to suck me into its world, then delivered a powerful story, all in only 13 episodes, was Haibane Renmei (my all-time favorite).

Thats how I felt about Bokurano though it was longer, if I had to go with a shorter anime Id say Mononoke. Both and Haibane Renmei used excellent storyline to suck me in Five Leaves get the point across with story and character development which is hard to do most of the time.

I'd thought we'd have plenty of people talking about the last episode.
Spoiler for Episode 12:


Personally i'd say this show was the best of the spring season. It's not everyday you get a show with solid character development and a slow paced slice of life feel at the same time, and they both work so damn well together.
