Over-analytic is not a bad thing. IMO Makoto is wise. I'm very impressed how he can find a way to convince Erio that she is not an alien. It's one of my most favorite moment in the series.

One other thing which I have to compliment SHAFT. They never fail to choose the seiyuu. I wonder who is in charge of choosing the seiyuu (Shinbo again?). He/She surely has a sharp sense.

Indeed. I would have never imagined Nonaka Ai voicing a MILF, yet she's doing a terrific job with Meme. Granted, Meme is very special MILF, but still. Brilliant casting.

I've never been displeased with Shaft's choice of seiyuu, except when it comes to one particular voice actress.

In addition, Shaft/Shinbou does have a tendency of sticking with certain seiyuu already casted in previous series. That certainly helps the feeling between the actor and the crew, resulting in an even better work.

In Denpa Onna we have Nonaka Ai (who previously worked in Madoka Magica and Natsu no Arashi), Katou Emiri (Madoka Magica, Bakemonogatari), Irino Miyu (SoreMachi).
Just like in Madoka Magica there were Yuuki Aoi (SoreMachi, Dance in the Vampire Bund), Saitou Chiwa (Bakemonogatari), Katou Emiri, Mizuhashi Kaori (Hidamari Sketch). And so on, going back.

One thing to note is that while for a certain period the established male character voice of Shaft series was Kamiya Hiroshi (Zetsoubou Sensei, Arakawa, Bakemonogatari), now this is the second consecutive series with Irino Miyu, not counting Madoka Magica and Maria Holic where there isn't a male main character.

@Pelissier -- Shinbou may have a certain group of seiyuus he likes to work with, but as you say the group shifts over time, and he keeps adding interesting new voices: such as Oogame Asuka (Erio) in this show. She may not be the greatest seiyuu, but she is doing a wonderful job of this particular character.

I really disagree with this one. We can see very clear character development for either of the two "denpa onna" (Erio) as well as "seishun otoko" (Makoto).
Makoto is actively helping Erio recovering from her trauma, even making her ultimatively drop her futon now. Erio recovered quite a bit by now and is now trying to find back into society. The first attempt didn't go quite as well, but then she found a job at the store of that strange old lady.

Enjoyment - now there certainly has been a lot of enjoyment for me in every episode now.

Actually, they were only to one interview, and Erio got rejected because the guy said, "Aren't you the one who runs around in town in a futon?", as was repeated later (we didn't actually see it).
After that, Erio was pretty depressed, and Makoto went shopping and to a restaurant with her.
Where did you get the idea that she went to several interviews? They never mention more than one, and after that, Meme comes up with the old lady's store, where Erio finds a place.

Probably... the seiyuu are very well chosen indeed.

You seem to be a big fan of Katou Emiri, listing her two times

There is no doubt about Makoto trying to help Erio. The problem comes when it is disrupted by his heavy but unnecessary descriptions. That doesn't really help establishing or developing Makoto's character, since that heavy descriptive nature is same for all characters in this series, it's just that Makoto has a lot more soliloquy, thus spends more time speaking about those stuffs. That's what bugs me.

I quit watching Denpa. I simply can not stand Erios character design. It annoys the hell out of me for some reason. That smile she does. IT FREAKS ME THE FUCK OUT. But yeah. Other than that pretty good first 5 episodes.

I still look upon this show as a riotous comedy; I laugh at the weirdness and the oddball behavior, the references to the sci-fi movies I watched as a kid, but applaud Makoto's bid to rehabilitate Erio.

The character designs don't quite bother me.

Erio is too pretty in this ep...I seriously felt her pain after getting rejected. The way the animation is done, somehow it portrays her fears and inner turmoil pretty well..

First of all, Erio wearing shoes! So weird...Im really accostumed to her always being barefoot.

Second, what a nice and lovely girl she is, trying to find a job to be a useful member of the society. Her first attempts sadly ended in failure but ultimately she got her job thanks to the grandma. Yay for Erio!

Third, Meme is really getting on my nerves with that childish attitude. She is 40 years old ffs.

Fouth and unrelated to episode content: Visual quality this time was unstable. Nothing too serious but it was easier to notice than in previous episodes.

I see her as similar to Akio in CLANNAD, serious and knows what the important stuff are, and at the same time not shy away from expressing herself and having fun.
From my perspective she's highly entertaining to watch. Nothing wrong with bring out your inner child at home.

speaking of which, we don't really see her outside that often do we? Most scenes are indoors.

She's just in denial. She can't accept the fact that she's 40.

BTW i can't decided whether or not I like Erio better when her shirt isn't worn properly.

That's a very sad part in the whole story, i.e. Erio is forced to serve the society that still rejects her :/

Childish How so? She is eccentric, but certainly not childish
