That's exactly why I have been asking and am a little that no one answered my question....did she get a orgasm from that kiss because her legs opened up? The reason for that goes back to her masturbation on that chair during the episode she waits for Haru to come back.

I see it more as a mind fuck...basically they play with our minds until the episode it reveals all and we are like "Ah shit, that's the truth." thing.

You guys really have me going now.

I rewatched the OP. I saw young Nao, Sora, and Haru happily walking on the bridge, the girls holding hands. I saw a young Nao taking down a young Haru, both of them partially disrobed. I also saw naked young Sora and Haru embracing. And there was floating, some flying.

Further in, I saw Sora spinning in the chair, which was a nice shot by the way with the camera fixed on her. I DIDN'T see her masturbating, but it doesn't really matter. I saw her REMEMBERING (my opinion) the kiss in the infirmary. Again, I don't think orgasm or not matters. In any case, she was certainly thinking of it fondly, no doubt about that.

The ED seems to show a peeping young Sora catching Nao in the act.

So, I conclude that they were once all good friends and that a physical love triangle developed. That certainly ups the current tension level.

I await further developments.

I fail to see what makes Haru such a stud, that every girl he meets turns red lol. If anything he looks feminine to me.

Definitely liking Sora, though i'm feeling yandere vibes from her.

The omake and the ED for this show were pretty epic. Will every ep have a little omake at the end?

That's the power of a bishi for ya.

Another successful way to get a harem is to not want one/ not realize you have one. Which he's workin' pretty well.

Wow, instant harem on the first day It's too early to say this, but everyone save for Sora and Nao feels unnecessary.

Initially I didn't even bat an eye at YnS. Got really bored today and took a gander, and found myself captivated by the foreshadows and the gentle atmosphere blanketing a serious plot. Also Sora is gorgeous and reminds me a lot of Al-Azif for some reason.

Here's something to make you think....why would Sora swipe her hand and make herself disappear from this picture in the OP?=>

on the other hand looks like Haru and Nao did have something going on but who knows if they finished for Sora might have interrupted them by looking at that time. Who knows. Could be mind screw again.

You're the one who makes me think, my friend! How many times are you going to make me watch that opening???

No really, it's always fun discussing things with you. You watch so many things so closely. And you make all those gifs. Where do you find the time?

When she swipes her hand, she wipes both her AND Haru out of the picture. I thought that might represent them originally leaving, but it's a new picture, not when they were young. Maybe she would like to get them both out of that new environment?

They were so young, it could have been a one time experimentation thing, but Sora did see them. And Nao was on top. She is such an introverted and sensitive soul that she undoubtedly completely freaked out.

Here's one for you. The OP shows a flash of Sora walking way out in the lake with her clothes on and Haru watching from the shore?

The series title means Sora's Ways. I like the subtitle of the series - "In solitude where we are least alone"

I don't, I am behind in my GIFs on other series for a while on some. Well it's fun to talk with you too here.

Interesting enough. Maybe she does want Haru and herself to be only the two of them. Which brings me to another thing with the OP sudden transportation to another world in that forest at one point? Do wonder about that one.

Hence why she though in the infirmary about it.

Well solitude here is misleading if one thinks it's the strict sense of being "alone." Assuming it's from Sora's POV, she obviously means the solitude of both of them "together". It's easy enough to see that Sora has a desire to have Haru all for herself, and considering she's clingy as hell, it's not surprising that being dependent on each other for so many years after their parents died that she would find her attachment to him to be something more than being brother and sister.

That said, she's probably completely emotionally dependent on Haru, and given her jealousy she probably doesn't want to share him with anyone.

Do I sense Yandere in the making?

In the first scene in the forest everything is purple and Sora and Haru fly up off the ground. In the second scene in the forest Sora struggles to stand up, alone and glowing purple. The forest appears to be burning and all the leaves are gone.

You withdrew your theory? I didn't think is was that bad!
When they are embracing, they are wet and beside the water. And there's a lot of underwater going on through the whole OP, even Nao.

Sora does have quite a punchup with Nao in the omake ED after they run towards each other looking very friendly, but then the cat girl also eats the violinist.

perhaps i missed this as well, but how did Akira know Haru's name? he didn't recognize her at all in class, but she knew him in the store.

I think of it as interestingly ambiguous: the words mean going to school, the disrobing something else.

I'm pretty sure the first thing a native speaker would think of from the phrasing here is going to school. Even though the word iku ("go") means to "come" (the sexual meaning) in Japanese. So more ambiguous than a real troll.

But still I think definitely the "trolling hall of fame," lol.

Pretty amazing that this is the stuff we are discussing for this show. Not your average anime.

How old are the characters?

Well, as we know from Sora's flashback and the discussion with Nao's mom, they have been in this town before as children. When she introduces herself to him at school, she clearly expected him to remember her, so we know she's at least met him before.

Well, there's the "official answer" that "All Characters Are 18 or Older"... but that aside, I guess I'd say second-year High School or so?

Dunno, not being a native speaker (rather a beginner), whenever I hear "iku", first thing that comes into mind is the sexual use, unless put into context from the sentence. Probably because I watch way too many weird j-movies (since they are easier to understand, among other things)

EDIT: I forgot to mention the fact that it was night, and sora begun undressing in front of Haru's futon ... and she had that look So I share the opinion that only an anime character could be refering to school

Neither the anime, nor the game's site list year of birth so ...

Motoka and Yahiro should be 18-25, since one is in college, and the other is an old friend and working full time ... certainly adults, since they were both shown drinking on TV (which I think is illegal to be depicted with minors).

For the rest, I assume high school, some are shown in the same class, and others are childhood friends. However unrealistic it might be:
  • Sora, Akira, and Kozue for examle look more like 12-15, rather than 16-18.
  • Haru also looks too young, but it might just be bishounen/feminine design.
  • Nao, and Kazuha on the other hand, look too developed for asian girls of that age.
Also it is strange to have a high school in the first place in a village without even a super-market, I guess japanese put education above comercialism

If that's the case -- and I think 16-17 is reasonable, despite the anime young look -- then raging hormones would be normal, and constant sexual imaginings on all sides par for the course.
____________

As for iku, it is the normal word for "to go." Ikimashou means "let's go." "Iku" is also the word for "to cum" ("to go") and you hear people say "iku" as "I'm cumming" in adult videos. But what Sora says is: "Ikasete.... Ikitai." "Have (or make) me go.... I want to go." I think the "have me go" means make the arrangements, make it possible for me to go to school. Earlier in the show, when he said she should make a uniform just in case she wants to go to school, she said: "Ikitaku naranai." "I won't (come to) want to go."

I am the furthest thing from fluent in Japanese, so maybe someone else has a better idea, but all that makes me think that the surface meaning would be about school. The emotions and the disrobing tell a different story, but I think the idea of cumming is just a hint, rather than a surface statement. Maybe we will learn better next week.
_____________

As for why this show reminds me of ef, it is largely the mood, as well as the sick girl who is turning toward the outside world, and toward love.

was wondering... if it could have another meaning... you know, some sort of subtle double entendre...
like: when they are alone, they start doing certain things...
thus, they feel are least alone...

The audience is supposed to think that Sora wants Haru to fuck her silly, that's all there is to it. Yeah I know, we're probably getting trolled but if you are a healthy heterosexual male then "oh poor thing, she asks Haru to let her go to school!" sure as hell isn't the first thing that should come to your mind when you hear a lascivious "ikasete" + undressing + blushing. I mean really.
