He's believable honestly. Just because your appearance has changed doesn't mean you have changed. He's still insecure, he doesn't have the social skills to pull the whole deal smoothly, I'm not even sure he really wants that revenge of his. Plus, he's got no experience.

Felt rather humane to me. A 1st failed attempt - as Yoshino said, he was being naive.

Interesting turn of events with Yoshino actually wanting revenge on Aki anyway - I'm dying to see how her & Masamune will cooperate.

It seems to me that part of the dysfunctional dynamics between Masamune and Yoshino's "cooperation" would lie with the fact that Masamune does not trust Yoshino.

Also, I get the feeling that if Masamune exchanged e-mail addresses or agreed to go to a movie with the class representative, he would have entered her route - and spare himself whatever problems (Humiliation, heartache, drama, etc) that the plot might decide to throw his way down the line.

Not sure how to say this, but I'm gonna watch this for the food. Did the manga also show this?

So what are those white things above Yoshino's actual eyebrows? They didn't seem to be there when she revealed her true self to Masamune.

ehh, if only he had accepted Futaba's call. On the other hand the episode was good and fun. And I like that Aki showed resourcefulness. Hopefully she is also smart.

Those white things are hair clips.

Yoshino sure fooled me with the dojikko act. Underneath it all, she probably hates Aki even more than Masamune does. She'll make a good ally, but Masamune should remain wary. He's still far too naive.

I'm starting to wonder about Aki's condition that requires her to eat like a pig. Will it be relevant to the plot or is it just for the cute factor?

Yoshino is a fearsome presence. Her thinking is just on a different level than the rest. Was she planning this from the start, years ago, when she deceived the both of them? Does she want him for herself, or just to use him as a pawn? I guess controlling him with pantsu won't work anymore, but I am confident she has many more tricks up in her sleeve.

It is good to see some people have interests in Yoshino.

Her actions including purposely letting everybody in crowds pushed her out and flip herself over exposing to Makabe her underwear at lunch break was also part her plan.

And even Makabe seemed to have thought that kind of stunt is actually impossible, not understanding the point of it.
The attention Yoshino gave to Makabe while everyone is looking towards the opposite.
Really, i wished everyone to notice that moment.

But if everyone in school knowing only "weak" side of Yoshino will just make Aki look bad, knowing how Aki treats Yoshino.

I agree that the anime fairly clearly portrayed Yoshino's fall as an acrobatic act rather than an accident. And the posture she stayed in afterward looked like a sexual "present" to Masamune-kun; it is certainly not a position a girl would stay in for more than a few seconds. Now you may say this was just fanservice, which it certainly was, but the scarcity of fanservice in the episodes so far makes it all the more noticeable. In a series full of fanservice, one act means nothing. In an anime where this is the only blatant sexual scene in the first two episodes, it's got to mean something. But does it imply that Yoshino has an interest in Masamune-kun, perhaps going all the way back to their childhood? Or is she just cynically playing on his lower brain in order to make him do her bidding? I guess time will show. To me, Yoshino is the most interesting character in the show so far, if not the only interesting character. Even class rep seems pretty one-dimensional, although far more sympathetic than the two main characters.

Episode 3 was good, really good.

For some reason this adaptation is making the rather average source more likeable, maybe is the pacing, which in my opinion is much better here than the manga.

This episode was centered mostly on Aki and Masamune, we started with revealing a big secret, Futaba is a fujo LOL. Then after that Yoshino is showign her influence over Aki by making her changing the way she was acting regarding the date but she's still reluctant, in the end Yoshino won and the date happened. Aki was mostly cute despite having some moments acting like a bitch, that dress was for sure a really bad choice tho.

There are 2 best parts coming out of this episode, the dressing room scene (damn thar pantyhose) and the final one where Masamune is starting to feel something after resting on Aki's lap. I enjoyed this.

Episode 3

Aki actually looks cute during that date. At the moment, I think Yoshino is the most unpredictable character just because of her personality. The date itself was kinda amusing I guess. Aki is definitely not the type that enjoys "horror" movies lol

I wonder why the studio choose the pink-ish pantyhose over the original black...

It took me quite some time, but I finally realized how stacked Yoshino is. Found it amusing how easily she can manipulate Aki. The latter has absolute trust in her.

The overeating thing does seem like it will be important to the story. I bet it's related to Masamune.

An interesting mix of personalities at work here. Have Yoshino who is treated roughly at times by Aki, but at the same time has absolute trust. Who seems to be doing this in order to actually help Aki. While Masamune's immediate objective is pretty straight up revenge. And yet of course he's going to have mixed feelings as this goes on. He fell in love with this girl at one point so of course if he sees the qualities he liked in the first place again...he will probably fall for her again. But not like he's going to forget what spurred him on to this track in the first place.

And then we have Aki who is a bundle of things. Obviously if we can learn what exactly traumatized her in the past it might help clear up some questions.

Yeah, seems likely to be related. Would expect the over the top rejections and the extreme compulsion to eat to be all connected to Masamune in some way. Something definitely happened at the very least. The flashback showed a girl who was rough and strict, but not that extreme. The kind of tough love that sometimes people need to hold their own ground. But now it's just utterly wrecking people.

I wonder if anyone on the Futaba ship is swaying at all now that the girl jumped so quick from "I want to be with Makabe" to "I want Kojuurou to be with Makabe, and I want to watch every last second of it!"...

Also, I see they changed White to "Whitening". Guess that helps avoid copyright problems.

Futaba could have won in life if Makabe accepted her.

I mean if Futaba having obssessed with BL fantasy between handsome Makabe and cute Shuri, while Makabe is still her proud boyfriend.
And Shuri would still would be these couple's best friends if things goes well.
One of the best things might be these three would go out together.
Having fun with her boyfriend while seeing his boyfriend having fun with her BL fantasy.
It is kind of a win-win life, if i think about it.
