Quite a few things here..... Mashiro putting on panties by her self, the Dragon's Beloved, an audition, and chocolate all around.

Chaos2Frozen 2013-02-04 03:36

Mashiro almost made it...! Just left one sock :eyespin: !

Rita's getting all fired up :uhoh:

tsunade666 2013-02-04 05:18

Rita is back!

Witheirate 2013-02-04 05:56

Now. I. Can't. Wait.

frivolity 2013-02-04 06:04

I want to watch THAT Rita scene.

Rita is back, wahoo! :D

Chaos2Frozen 2013-02-04 21:32

Lol, what a gloomy Valentine's Day episode :heh:

Somnus 2013-02-04 22:30

Why are these episodes so short? It ended so quickly!

As for my thoughts....

Dragon, I swear I'm going to slay your sorry behind. Once I stood alongside you, but no more! You better have redeemed yourself off-screen. I also wish I could've seen that email.

When Mashiro asked Sorata to hold hands, I instantly thought, "there is only one correct answer to this question. He better damn well get it." To my surprise, he actually did!

Argh! Dragon. I swear. This sword. Your heart. Try and stop me.

man, failed valentines day for all.

Poor Aoyama T_T Kanda, why don't you take the prize right in front of you.

Kind of a technical point I think, but it always bothered me that even though Nanami is the "voice actress" character that's been working towards it.

But everytime we see her practice or anything, its just her regular voice, only bit more monotone....

I mean the biggest extent we seen of her voice acting is back when she feel sick and she voice act'd the stuffed animal.

Benigmatica 2013-02-05 01:38

The only thing I would like to see is Dragon-kun chasing Rita... But he couldn't do it! *cries*

As for Nanamin, I have a feeling that she's hiding something to Sorata, regarding the results of the audition... And speaking of Nanamin, not a single appearance of Jin was given on this episode.

Entravity 2013-02-05 02:33

This episode is executed fairly well with the appropriate mix of drama that doesn't feel too forced. What Sorata said about Mashiro looking backwards and not being able to see him is a great touch.

The Green One 2013-02-05 02:56

Poor little dragon-kun, because he doesn't immediately go after the hot English girl after him he gets treated with scorn and ridicule. Yep the double standard can go die in a fire now.

Though of course most of you are joking.

Still an interesting episode, looks like they're not going to let go of the love triangle just yet.

That's kind of standard for fiction, isn't it? If you make a drawing of a drawing it has to look less realistic than the "normal" drawing, and likewise a movie of a movie or an actor pretending to be acting. If you don't do it like that then it interferes a bit with suspension of disbelief, or something along those lines. You have to be able to believe that the world they're showing you is more "real" than the fiction inside it.

Sumeragi 2013-02-05 05:40

Wait..... are seiyuus supposed to have different voices when working? Where did that idea come from?

zRichard 2013-02-05 05:51

This could have been a good episode, but it had too many ancient cliches ruining good scenes.

- Rita's "PS: It was my first kiss" was blatant otaku pandering that came out of nowhere. As if Ryuunosuke's will is so weak that him being this woman's first would change anything.
- This episode marked the 73rd time I saw a half-acted/joking confession in Japanese media. Also, the whole scene felt completely artificial in a manufactured scenario.
- Generic RomCom Main Lead's obliviousness broke several records in in the rooftop scene.

So, other than time moving forward and some build up, nothing really happened. When your Valentine episode feels like a filler episode in a romantic comedy, then you are doing things wrong. I can't believe this was being compared to Toradora! during its early episodes. Even Hyouka made it's valentine episode something important, significant and necessary to where the whole series was going.

Unfair comparisons aside, Sakurasou is still something barely worth the watch and has a long way to go before becoming a recommendable romantic comedy.

kivredia 2013-02-05 05:54

So the earlier summary was kind of wrong. Honestly I wasn't too impressed by the episode. Usually they try to give valentine's day way more IMPACT!

Lack of Jin and only 30 sec of RitaxDragon didn't make it any better. It also didn't feel like 20ish minutes at all, although most of what happened wasn't really significant.

So far I actually understood Jins actions, apart from the playboy part which was kind of meh from the beginning. Maybe they'll insert some random reason why he was busy on that day but I'm just not buying it right now.

But next week it's Misaki time which I'm really looking forward to.

A pretty depressing episode for Rita who come all the way from England just to give chocolates.
