To be able to manipulate the audience (though this is just as much on the part of the audience, even if it's a timeshifted show like television and not a live one like theater) is something that takes talent, and should be admirable. To call it "trolling" debases so much of what goes into creating a narrative.
Well no I did not mean it like that but what you mean is the art of mind playing, which the whole setting succeeded and the preview is getting good at it too.
These are the rest of my comments about the episode itself...........The first thing that let's me think of is how sad it was to see Sora all alone here=>

and you can truly see the scene of the depression that she was in at this stage. That was kind of a nice throw that Ryouhei did with his bag here and it showed since it landed perfectly fine on his desk. Kind of liked how akira took care of Haruka with her massage. Showed a nice care of her for him. Oh how nice.....the gym uses bloomers. Another nice ecchi aspect I have seen in other animes and Kazuha's ass looks quite fine in them. Nice genuine satellite view of the school itself. It makes you see how the setup around the school can be different with all the different places that it shows. Kazuha's lunch is too much here but I will assume a lot of it is shared with Akira since she does not have much money to get food, which is shown also from what her lunch looks like. That cat on top of Akira. Is kind of a nice unique setup there for her. Oh wow! Haruka you pervert looking at this=>
Spoiler:
of Akira....this first part shows how much of a pervert he is.....at least he is healthy. Yahiro's introduction was fine but I can see she has almost as big breasts as Motoka. Ok I see what the visit of Haruka towards the temple of Akira was for......it was to get this nice bug net for Sora. It was also shown that she has a bug phobia. How cute and of Sora to hide behind her brother the way she did. I though she would know about Ryouhei. Sora's class introduction was kind of plane. She did not show any happiness at that time. Major fan service of Kazuha's bra/size of her breasts and panties here=>
Spoiler:

I did like the kocha kocha (I think this is the sound I heard) at this part.
About the Omake.

Yeah this part did make me think of mission impossible TBH. Too bad the music did not play like it did within the movie itself. Oh my! Motoka sees Haruka in chibi form naked! Too bad it was in chibi form.....it might have been more serious if in normal form.
Pretty much all I felt more or less around the episode. Of course Akira's water blaster and Sora's sudden hair spray to kill the bug were good highlights themselves.

hahaha should I say as expected?

Anyway this is more how I like it (less echi). As I suspected it seems that they need to create some sort of impact for the first episode to grab the viewer

Hmm It seems that they're going visit each heroine at the time which would make Kazuha -> Akira -> Nao -> Sora + Inchou and perhaps a little bit motoka and Ryouhei somewhere between.

Lol poor Ryouhei though, it looks like as if the animator could care less about him (he look pretty hideous in the anime)

I reviewed the record in an attempt to prove that the idea of Sora wanting to "cum to school" was externally inspired.

I found this first mention of that concept:

This strikes me as a sincere original thought and sufficient evidence for me to retract my earlier accusation. Kanon may or may not be a "reasonable person" but she certainly seems an insightful one.

I am amused by the troll / artistic manipulation dichotomy and I'm afraid that this chasm of perception shall not be bridged.

I am sympathetic to both sides, but I must say that I appreciate a good "troll". As long as the justification is there (in this case I believe it is) and it's not just out of the blue, I say it's a fair cop and I will try to be more on my toes the next time.

I don't understand you statement but to illustrate it=>
Spoiler:

I could think that to have sex it's as simple for her as to take off her panties instead of taking off her garter-belt. Damn she is one sexy maid TBH. Also it was obvious based on Kazuha's reaction here of how Haruka is a sweet talker after all. With just those words he got out of Kazuha's a blush.

Anyone who didn't see that "troll" coming needs to play more eroges/fap to more incest mangas/work on being less gullible. Heck, that wasn't even trying to troll anyone, they were blatantly making it obvious with all the imagination sequences that preceded the scene during the whole episode.

I liked the second episode overall. Didn't like the extra focus on "Ojou" though. Her sister is a different story. And Sora is always awesome. I didn't really like the fact that Sora was shown as scared of mosquitoes, but after reading someone's spoiler in this thread, I am glad that that wasn't the way the author meant to characterize her.

Well maybe that is because Kazuha never had much time in the game itself....might be why but also because they might make her play a bigger role in the future of this series. Remember she is after all the most wealthy of all the characters.

Mosquito? I though it was more something of a fly or bee. Well another thing is to show she is very girlish that is apart her sudden shy side too here=>

best show of the new season. gotta love the development. i'm interested in how this arc will turn out. Sora at school and blasted by water was hilarious.

for preview: obviously a continuation of the scene in ep 2.

My point exactly ... but I would suggest the opposite reaction

Nah! I prefer the white dress. Anyway, she was really cute throughout the episode.

As expected, keeping the fanservice relatively low works wonders in this show. Plenty of nice scenes in the episode, like Sora getting freaked over a little mosquito and Akira blasting everyone with water.

Next episode: backstory of Kazuha and Akira. I don't like Kazuha a lot but Akira is my favorite after Sora, so looking forward to it.

Good episode. I loved Sora's insane reaction to a single mosquito lol. Kazuha seems to be a good character. I really enjoyed the scenes that she had with Haru. The pool scene was hilarious, with Akira Mowing everybody down with the hose lol. The cliffhanger was good, too. Can't wait for next week.

I have exactly the opposite opinion, showing what the characters were fantasizing, and keeping the ambiguity (both in dialogue and visually) made the first episode different and so much more mature than any other eroge adaption. I can see that younger members of the audience jumped in because of the service and ignored everything mentioned, but what you can do. Certainly I rather have that than 2-3 shows that are carbon-copies of each other each season.

Let me give an example from the first episode ... Motoko, is shown mastrubating (with LOL audio), but then crying. In a hentai, you get only the first part of the scene, while in a date-sim or eroge adaption, you usually get the second scene completely out of context and you are expected to sympathize with the character, without having any real reason (i.e. because its a corny scene). Combining both of them showcases how lonely the characters feels, while giving depth and maturity.

By the way, I really like Motoko, let's see maid, lonely, troubled, ...

Not sure about that but it is possible sex it might be still it might have been interrupted is what I am thinking TBH.

It's for the perverse meido-san omake. Which is kinda wasting minutes from the main story.
