Yeah, I hardly get the impression that the matters were solved. Just that she held her ground against them and can stay in the club. Seems like they just avoided the worst case scenario of her being transferred out of the school. If suddenly everything was resolved I'd be bothered in seeing none of it, but nothing really seemed to give that impression.

Just now she's in a fairly similar position to Haruhiko. Both just enduring less than pleasant home lives in order to keep that family structure in place. Just waiting for that missing member to perhaps one day return to them.

Amazing how it's nothing really extravagant or anything, yet just looks incredible.

For official art purposes, her head is still larger than her bosom. Fanart, on the other hand...

Yeah, she doesn't even have to be wearing anything special and it still looks nice.

Episode 4:
Well, it was a good episode with regards to family issues for Reina Izumi.

I don't know why her parents decide to have a change of heart after being almost spirited away, but at least Reina's relationship with her mom and dad went well instead of hitting rock bottom.

I think the problem is that we never got the scene with Reina and her parents on-screen, so we don't get to see anything about the reasons for their (apparent) change of heart. After all, they already lost one child for being asshats, so maybe they actually figured that if the whole Phantom thing had already drawn Reina in they ought to back off on their attitude for the sake of keeping their family together. Parents can grow up and change too! But we don't see that on-screen, so the whole thing seems like a cop-out.

Honestly, Haruhiko troubled me more. Like you say, he's enduring a less-than-pleasant home life solely for the sake of the missing family member. He obviously hasn't come to terms with the idea of his parents' divorce, since he actually expects his mother to come home one day and everything to go back to the way it was. And his dad sounds like a real prize, after driving off his wife (even Haruhiko admits that's why his mom left) he's now making things rough on the son. And now he's lecturing Reina to stay in her own unhappy home, not because of sensible things like "moving off to the Phantom world is a weird and dangerous thing" or "how do we know these Phantoms are as nice as they seem?" or "Mai and I care about you and would miss you a lot" or "you have dreams for your future, don't you?" he instead basically tells her to stay by imposing a duty on her to wait around at home for her sister to come back and put up with whatever crap her parents throw at her, even though those parents were apparently awful enough for Reina's sister to up and leave.

tl;dr Reina's issues are bad writing, but Haruhiko desperately needs counseling 'cause he's toting serious baggage over his family issues.

EP 4 was not that good, as I expected
Don't have much to say about it
When the reason for Reina's attachment to Mai was revealed I cringed a little
I suppose the next episode is going to 'focus' on Minase?
After this hopefully they'd be done with this 'one girl each episode' they have going
It's boring

well like everyone already said before in the name of seiyuu jokes, she's like an upgraded now busty Dekomori Sanae, who's not a chuuni anymore as in this world, magic powers are real along with the enemies they fight,
also in crossover seiyuu joke slash pairings, i am not sure if her doing the usual yuri antics with Nibutani Shinka will now induce blood loss from the audience.........

I wouldn't be surprised if they gave an episode to that little girl that follows them and to Ru.

She's actually the lovechild of Deko and Shinka. I mean, look at those knockers!

Really boring episode, Koito is a pseudo-tsundere badly done and the loli - even if she was cute - was an unnecessary adition - yeah original character -. Mai has a perfect body damn, stacked on every place.

The good thing is how this adaptation is doing a terrible job on every ranking in japan, even when kyoani already throw the bait.

I knew it! That bear is alive in a way!

Eh, Koito is...a strange character. I originally kinda liked her but now not sure anymore. Her characterization didn't impress me much after this week's episode. I think Kurumi might be next to get her own episode?

Action was okay. For some reason, that Phantom looks familiar..

Well in the end the situation for Koito is basically a worse version of Reina's home life. While things got really uncomfortable at home with Reina, here the result was even more extreme. Teachers, friends, parents, everyone freaked the heck out and pushed Koito away. It's not too unusual, but can certainly understand why she basically stopped reaching out. Though this place is more accepting of her abilities, most probably don't share the anger she has towards phantoms as a whole.

Did get a chance to see more of Kurumi which is ok. Though wow Mai, pulling in a kid in order to fill the temporary gap left by Haruhiko . Was a nice change I suppose seeing Mai being the envious one this time around.

In the end Haruhiko fixed the mess he helped make. And kind of forced Koito into becoming friends along the way.

Anise Tatlin, is that you?

So this time it's a Chimera they're fighting, but how come it's fire elemental when it breaths blue laser, lightning, and poison? Well whatever, the OHKO by Mai was frigging amazing animation wise!

Yeah, lots of Mai jealousy this time around. Pretty obvious when Reina nor 'Anise' didn't really object to him going to Koito. So with Reina and Koito episodes done, maybe we'll get some more random Phantom of the Week episodes before finally going into the Mai finale arc? I sure hope so. XD

Hmmm the next episode should be focused on the loli and the next one is gonna be one of 2 options, or Haru as focus, or more teasing with some interactions between Haru and the girls + random phantoms - considering kyoani decided to go full original -.

Mai ending? Hahaha nope, childhood friends never wins.

I feel like they missed an opportunity by not having Reina use mouth to mouth to heal Koito's breathing problem.
