With the amount of people calling her dumb or fat, you've gotta love how she takes it all like a bro. More bonus points right there.

Yes, the change in perspective is very refreshing. I welcome it with open arms. This enables us to see Junichi in a new (better) light, although they made a point of showing us he's still as much of a pervert as usual (at the same time, it was pointed out to us that Junichi likes chubby girls). I think they switched the point of view this time because Rihoko's already very much in love with, thus he doesn't really need to woo her. Maybe the roles will be reversed? In any event, I loved this episode thanks to this.

Rihoko is such an adorable klutz. I hadn't realized just how much of one she was until now. And I knew she ate a lot, but what we saw in this episode went beyond my expectations. It's amazing she looks so good. Aaaah, anime.
It's not so much that Junichi likes chubby girls as it's that he likes curvy girls. Fat = bigger boobs, thighs, and butt. If a girl has fat in the right places, then she can be attractively curvy. if not... then she's overweight and fat. Different connotations there.

Rihoko is what I, and others, call "anime fat". Comparative to the other heroines (and girls in anime in general) she is a bit fatter. However, when you consider that many anime girls are basically either glorified stick figures or physiological impossibilities, the truth is that Rihoko is actually the most realistically proportioned girl in this series if not one of the most realistically proportioned girls in any anime. And I approve of this without reservation.

To the /a/ and 2ch crowd she's probably "pig disgusting", but to folks like me she's damn near perfect. I can't remember which comedian it was that said it, but I share the attitude that I don't want to see rib cages thank you very much. Bones are for dogs, men need meat.

Poor thing; she's totally wasted on a guy like that, fence-fix notwithstanding.

If she was a real girl, I know that many people whill find her really beautiful ! She's just a normal girl not fat or anything. It's the other who are skinny

This Episode was hilariously good! Loved it , Rihoko is a winner winner chicken dinner!

I found it very cute that Rihoko has photos of Jun and her when they were young and even edits her memories about Junichi , when Kanae proposed the skate date I found it funny when Umehara just popped in and tagged along , double date . maybe we'll see Umehara get with someone too!! but thats just wishful thinking , pretty hilarious with the whole "we have business to attend to" around Kaoru... man I wouldn't ditch Kaoru for Porn magz.. when she asked them to have all 3 play together , I sorta had this idea Rihoko would join and it be a 2 on 2 thing.. but oh well , anyway good Episode and looking forward with the rest of the arc

Unfortunately, many Japanese artists do not offer much variety in terms of body image for girls. Ninety-nine % of female characters fall into either the shapeless 8 year old boy body of lollies or the generic build which exaggerates certain curves - mainly breasts. Thus, judging a girl's anime physique is not a good indicator of fitness level or dietary intake. Ai and Hibiki are athletes, but by looking at how they are drawn, you wouldn't know. I would not suggest that Rihoko needs to go on a diet based on how she is drawn. However, she does need to improve her eating habits and make better choices considering all the snacks she ate during school.

I'll have to disagree with that. I've read quite a bit of manga in my time, and i've seen plenty of different body shapes. They're not always the two that you just mentioned.

I wouldn't say the other girls are skinny, I think slim or pretty slim would be better to describe them but by no means slim in a bad way.
Well this is one of them series that portrays the girls in a somewhat realistic way, nothing really over the top.

Rihoko for me is just lovely, as my brother would put it "she's pork chops"(which just means she's a little chubby but in the right places)

I have to agree that this is probably the best opening ep of any of the arc's so far. It was a real delight to watch. The fence bit was rather funny and cute in it's own way.

I liked the Jun-chan and Ume-chan antics, the perfectly timed synchronized turn around made me laugh

And well no surprise but I loved the weight scales scene, hard not too
I know Shiro-chan will have loved it

Very much looking forwad to this arc, more so than any others oddly.

Pretty good start. Nice flow to the episode, and Rihoko reminds me a little of Ika musume
I hope there's more to Rihoko than her easygoing, naive nature though.

Rihoko is nowhere near fat, she has a great set of assets... but then again asian standards are extremely harsh, if you don't have a size 0 waist you're a fatass. My poor older sister had to go through such treatment.

Looks like Rihoko's quote line is "I'll start tomorrow...".

Good starting episode. The freshness of starting from Riho's point of view partially made it a winner as well as Junichi not looking like a total tool. I'll admit to being with most of the crowd in that Rihoko wasn't a favorite, but I'm looking forward to see how this plays out.

I was smiling throughout the whole episode, she's a really funny character. I don't like her as much as Ai right now, but I like her more than the other three. I'm reserving Tsukasa to a spot where I'm not counting her until her arc. Very enjoyable episode, I thought it'd be a lot less of a good arc, but it was really great, and funny. I laughed pretty hard in a lot of moments.

However.
I did not like the ed. It didn't sound like her singing, and I didn't like the voice. The video and images were nice, but the song itself, I didn't like. Least favorite of the ED's so far, tbh. After hearing it a lot of times, it's grown on me a bit more, but not by much.

Oh and when Miya came out of nowhere when Junichi and Rihoko were having a cute moment when they were little going all NISHISHISHI NIKUMAN i was like what the hell D : /does not like Miya

But all in all, a great ep. One of my favorites. Looking really forward to this arc. In a few days me and mom will be starting to watch Amagami together so. 8D

Miya was pretty random in that flashback i have to admit, though it's nice to see that the three played together in the past, seeing as though they're childhood friends.

First truly pleasant surprise in the series for me. But then my expectations were pretty bad. Given the earlier arcs, I would have expected Junichi to take advantage of her like there was no tomorrow. He seems to have gotten a heart transplant, metaphorically speaking!

Of course it helps that we see it from Rihoko's point of view. She is seeing things in the best possible light. All in all this is an amazingly cute episode.

They really planned her to become the lead heroine for this arc, and every girls can relate on how she feels. But she keeps saying she would change only ends up eating those delicious stuffs.


She is a desirable mother in the future as she can cook delicious food although I have to pity her children if they end up hungry.

I give this episode a 9+1 for the young Miya Tachibana and the way she edited her memories.

My impression before watching the episode was that I wasn't going to enjoy this arc at all, though with shift and actually seeing her character some more, it looks to be a decent actually plus Kanae-chan, and the two club members both helped make this episode more enjoyable , so I'd give the episode an 8, and ED was decent, but worse most of the other EDs song wise.

Being voiced by Matsuoka Yuki is a nice plus as well.
