Me too, and that scene when Minko was dreaming of Tohru in class.

Afraid I have to agree with both these statements - I was frankly disappointed by this ep.

Everything felt like a badly acted drama - too fast, too false, and almost as if everyone was consciously looking at themselves in the mirror and dramatically watching themselves recite their lines or make poses.

Even worse - I was heartily disappointed by almost all the other characters getting wrapped up things and missing the main point which both Ohana and Sui were stressing, although each in their own way. I can't tell you how much I wanted Ohana to slap Minko and even Tohru silly.

I will admit, though, that what the ep portrayed in terms of "taking sides" so quickly and ... erm ... acerbically definitely does happen IRL, though. And it is just as painful to see when it does happen, when one realizes one has been participating on the nasty side of things, and especially when one is one the receiving end.

Hmm ... I will definitely admit that it was a lovely scene.

But no matter how lovely the scene was I don't think it salvaged the ep.

5/10 vote from me....

Shit was legit when they were all working together. The ending for this ep was definitely a surprise, but I think that it fit quite nicely.
