I don't know what to say about her other than "she likes playing video games".

I know it's late but I feel that Hikari Tsuneki might be okay, but the ending of her story arc needs a lot to be desired. I mean, she and Shouichi Kamita spend their time together at a study camp and they haven't become a couple after Hikari left Japan to study abroad. What a shame...

And speaking of Tooru Miyamae's arc, I'll have my final thoughts about it once it's done.

There is quite a difference between liking video games and being obsessed with them. Actually, her video game addiction seems to be just one quirk that is related to her lack of general impulse control. There are other manifestations of this flaw. Recall when she hogged the microphone for quite a while during their karaoke session, or when she directly asks Shouichi for a bit of his food because she wants what other people want.

The other oddity about her is that she seems to be lacking in normal social cues, as can be seen when: She pushes herself next to Shouichi to take her seat, then unbuttons her shirt next to three boys; she has no problem letting what appears to be a grown man (the cram school teacher and her brother, most likely) into the bathroom when she is taking a bath; her not seeing any impropriety in her sharing food with Shouichi; or her going all out against two much younger boys. None of these are bad per se, but her nonchalance about all of them suggests someone who is a bit socially stunted.

Seeing tsuneki in this chapter... I'm still bitter for her ending.

Well we are only half way through Miyamae's arc. But at the same time I can't say it's been thrilling either. I suppose it is somewhat interesting how Miyamae utterly throws herself into whatever she is doing. Though I can understand in some games getting sucked into them until you reached some point where the interest in that game fades. But can see why she has often been playing by herself. Gets so into them that for group games it either forces the others to go crazy in order to match her pace or get frustrated so they stop playing with her entirely.

Certainly a thing she probably just doesn't realize or notice herself. Thus why she could talk down to Tsuneki about fighting with a kid or utterly ignoring some of the comments she gets while playing games. When playing she has utter tunnel vision and it is only when she comes out of it that she can get back to normal. She's certainly ok before and after something, but in the heat of the moment she's just in another place entirely.

I suppose the most interesting thing is that the school's disciplinary committee has the authority to harass students going to an arcade on the weekend. And potentially that the Morishima Haruka arc is the one that happened for Amagami during this arc?

We'll see how the back half of this arc goes.

A nice episode. I like the story so far. I hope that we can get a proper happy ending this time.

I honestly like this new arc more than expected. Tooru and Kamita has decent character chemistry and I'm really starting to like Tooru's personality now that we get to know her more. Latest episode felt like a date of sorts when the two were having fun playing games.

That rabbit Miyamae made was the best thing about this episode. I loved how it had its own expressions and reactions to everything alongside MC.

I have some issues with the current heroine's arc as a whole, but I really liked Episode 7. Unfortunately it looks like some of the weirdness that I found off putting about other episodes in this arc is set to make a return next episode.

This is getting dangerously close to the first arc, that one also had the main duo get closer and lovey dovey and then brought everything crashing down. Hopefully I'm wrong though, it wouldn't feel very rewarding if every arc ended cheating the audience of the happy ending.

I'm not big on how they presented her competitiveness as a flaw. Especially since the big issue was that she won against boys. What was she supposed to do, pretend to be weak to assuage their male pride?

I think that was the whole point. We were shown her world perceiving it as a flaw, but I don't think the series POV was that it was a flaw. I think they were making a point.

Yet again this show immediately diffuses any potential drama or tension before we can even indulge in it at least a little bit. It's all just...so tame, and not just that but there's barely any romance here.

As it looks, Tsuneki arc still had more potential due to her being the most interesting character in Seiren ~ I mean, she's still fairly good as a side character in this arc. Sadly, that potential wasn't met and it seems to be a thing with this show whenever something gets a tiny bit spicy. It barely scratches the surface of some issues before they get immediately resolved, same with Hikari's friend that ratted her out, same with Toru's issues. Hikari calls her,tells her she has a better gaming partner nearby,Toru think's it over for a brief moment and that's it.

No1's asking or expecting anything too dramatic here, but come on, at least have some romantic tension ~ wait, nvm, can't have romantic tension if there's barely any romance. Feelsbadman.

I don't know. It definitely looks like some kind of consensus that it's a flaw, and nobody gets called out on it. The MC (and his friends, I guess) just looks extra-nice for not caring that she's better at video games than he is, instead of passing some kind of minimum requirement for human decency. And even then, it makes him look like a doormat, instead of someone secure enough in his masculinity and hobby to accept that some people, even some females, are better at games than he is.

That's a complete 180 degree opposite read on the situation from mine, but I guess that's why they call it interpretation.

I read it more like "you'll have problems if you can't connect with her on her competitiveness" since a lot of the people she interacted with before just didn't have that in common nor really got it. Sometimes, people won't like you for whatever and that's life.
