I know. I used some as a kid. But using them nowadays? It was probably because it was the only thing she could afford. Anh_Minh raises a good point though, does she not have a cellphone? If she does, maybe it really is just her preference. That said, it's not a secret that Kokona's family is poor.

I thought this week's episode was the weakest so far. It was fun to see Aoi imagine that Hinata would make fun of her for not drinking her coffee black though, only to find out Hinata had been using milk for her own coffee all along. Aoi is well too self conscious sometimes.

I can sympathize with Aoi. I'm almost 40 and I still loath all the "adult" drinks. At least she can drink tea. I like neither tea nor coffee nor alcohol or even energy drinks.

Same here. Though energy drinks shouldn't be for anyone. And especially not for kids.

But anyway I literally can't drink any of that now so...

I like coffee just fine, but not black. I always add one sugar. Never understood why drinking black coffee is considered "adult". Is it just an anime trope, or do the Japanese actually believe that?

Tea actually strikes me as a more adult drink.

Pretty sure there are people in America with that misconception. Especially kids. And thus it makes a lot of sense for a kid to approach it with this sort of worry.

Why would anyone want to drink something as disgusting as coffee in the first place?

I was underwhelmed when I saw the title of the episode, but it was better than I expected. At least there were mountains involved. And I have some coffee-loving friends who would appreciate some of the gags.

(I am very much a tea drinker myself. Oolong is my favorite.)

AFAIK children dislike anything that tastes bitter as a defense mechanism (so that they do not ingest anything poisonous) but as we grow old we no longer find the taste so bad.

Maybe it's because nobody wants their kids hopped up on caffeine, so put them off by saying "No, this is for grown-ups. You can have some when you're older."

Really? I never knew that.

The present study tests the hypothesis that genetic variations in the newly discovered TAS2R38 taste gene as well as cultural differences are associated with differences in sensitivity to the bitter taste of propylthiouracil (PROP) and preferences for sucrose and sweet-tasting foods and beverages in children and adults.

Of course, I am no scientist (nor I play one on TV), so YMMV. To this day I drink my coffee with milk.

Exactly! Tea, I'm a bit more OK with, but then only certain kinds. But when you're a kid and you see all of the adults drinking it you can't help but want to try it. Once I finally did, I couldn't stand the stuff, and still can't. My sister's liked it since she was a kid though.

Another episode that showcased Aoi's growth, this time at her part time job. She's come a long way.

As for Hinata, she seems way too used to having Aoi around.

Saturday was Japan's National Mountain Day. Did anyone else go mountain climbing in solidarity? My friend and I went up to Saddle Peak, overlooking Malibu.

This week's episode has a cliffhanger, with Hinata finding a new mountain for them to try and Honoka calling Aoi on the phone. We'll have to see if they follow up on those next week.
