Yeah, that scene was funny lol.

The type of madness in this episode of Arakawa reminded me of a scene from Seto no Hanayome. In that scene:

A surprisingly serious episode. Or at least end in a serious note.

I remember reading these chapters and wondering how Shaft would handle the seriousness of the situation. The blend of comedy and non-comedy (seriousness) was great.

Spoiler for epi 3:

I seriously did not expect such a serious focus on the relationship between Ric and Nino when going into this weeks episode, not at all. It's really good though, i mean for all the serious content we've been seeing during the opening scenes of each episode, it's good that something that can rival them has made it into the shows story. I was perfectly fine with this series just being an all out straight comedy, because i love it for that, though i can't begin to express how happy i am that there's such a hidden side to the series.

I'll admit that i was expecting Hoshi to have tapped over the content, mainly because of how the jokes are usually played out in this show, and that i was expecting them to have something to do with him right from the start. Seriously wouldn't knowing the true contents of the tape though, especially seeing as though Chief seems to what's on the tape, and believes it's to early for Ric to hear. Such a tease.

The topic regarding Ric and Nino's relationship always seems like a none serious one until this episode, i mean it's been shown how much Ric wants to devote himself to make this relationship work, though Nino has just been her typical self, which i'd call hiding away. This episode was one of the rare chances that we were able to see her true self. I knew we'd see it eventually, though never did i expect in this fashion. I have a feeling it'll be a while before we see it again, though i'm thankfully for such a chance in the adaptation.

Will finish off by saying how much i adored the music placement for the final scene. Hoping said piece will make it onto a soundtrack eventually.

Also can anyone reading the manga tell me which chapter this part of the story came from please?

Arakawa has 10 volume and it's still on-going. The amazon does appear briefly in the manga.

God this show is amazing.

I was laughing hysterically during Nino's fit on the telephone pole, but then the show slapped me across the face with some of the most heart warming, moving character development I've seen in fucking ages. I have been DIEING for a show like this since I started watching anime 15 years ago, this show just leaves me so fucking happy at the end each time.

I need more fucking words for amazing.

This episode makes me want to marathon the manga, but I already spent 4 hours yesterday catching up on Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, which just made my backlog even longer if anything ... AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHH *dies*

Nino is incredibly hilarious and cute as always, but I feel Ric's narrative and inner monologue really flesh out the emotion, and Kamiya's voice really ace the job once again. I totally didn't get the gag at the end but I lol'ed all the same.

I've been wondering, after this episode, do you think Ric's and Nino's relationship will be the same? Up until this point, Nino wasn't entirely sure about Ric's feelings for her, and Ric wasn't entirely sure about Nino's feelings (her own insecurities included) either. However, now both of them are aware of those things.

Do you think they will continue the same as always, or do you expect a change in their behaviour (at the very least, when they are together)?

Watching her take off her dress to put on the lingerie was more fascinating. >_>

Sister has horrible taste, but at least he has excellent sight.

Also . . . she wasn't wearing a bra. So . . . does she . . . never wear . . . . . . . I need more Maria in my Arakawa.

I'll agree with that. Shame i was a bit too focused on the content of the episode then that little scene. Was still <3 though.
