I'd say the one that has hijacked his body is... He himself!

What the world did I just watch? After the second episode...I'm left with absolutely no clue as to what this series is trying to get at. I'll watch one more episode but this may just be on my drop list.

They say "ep 2 is bit messy and random. Please wait until ep 6. Those foreshadowing will be solved in ep 6 like other Uchikoshi' works"

According to seiyuu, The later story will be serious but either way, I like this somehow, even if it's clueless.

That thought struck me too. We may be looking at a very traditional old-school anime riff on puberty and saving the Earth here. Let's see - we have a MC whose older sibling went off to America, and that sibling's friend sexually teases and torments him - does that sound familiar? At least she calls him "Yu-tan" and not "Ta-kun".

I rather like this show, despite not expecting to. I feel like I understand what language it's speaking and that certainly helps, but there are some clues in this episode that it's building something interesting in terms of plot and character.

Will try to give it another ep or two but at the moment something just isn't clicking with me. :\
I'm pretty much in the same boat with you, here. The comedy is pretty funny at times but I'm not really sure what the point of all of it is. Hopefully it'll all come together in Episode 6 like it has been suggested but that's a bit of a wait if I'm honest. I get that there's this puberty theme going on but all I can say is that it's been done before and better (Loved FLCL).

Agreed to that!

Anyways, it seems that someone is bullying Ito Hikiotani in the past. Can't wait to see it resolved, but it'll be just like this episode and the previous!

The beginning of the episode also had me wondering what the point of it all was. I think right now they're still just establishing the characters. But if that last bit before the ED is any hint, I'm thinking the MC is going to have to use his new found powers to save his friends and reset the timeline probably to keep them from being killed.

I'm loving the style of this show. It has just the right amount of silliness. The cheermancy song has been stuck in my head since yesterday.

i think the full OP single will forever got stuck to my double hemispheres, Shokotan lets herself on the loose again

surprised no one mentioned the part where Ito munching on that salmon looks suggestive innuendo with the fish's eggs dropping on the floor between her spread open legs in tip toes sitting position with her Punch Line exposed.........

I think that's the problem here- the pacing and/or the structure of the show. Anime can't just wait till halfway through their run time to become interesting. Something tells me this would've been better done as a movie or two, as 6 episodes in is pretty much a month and a half in real time. That is an awfully long while to keep an audience's attention span with 'messy and random' stuff.

Not that I'm going anywhere; this is my kind of fanservice, after all. But I can see other people seeing how shallow this is would be dropping the show within the first three.

I really don't mind these wacky eps where we learn about the rest of the characters in the apartment, but I really find it odd that whoever hijacked Yuta's body hasn't done anything yet.

I wouldn't be surprised that he will get his body back by ep6 and home in straight into True End. After all he's deliberately blocking himself out so that he could work on both sides at the same time.

We are having a case of Schroedinger's Yuuta

Basically I trust Uchikoshi (original, script). But yeah, the story of 'beginning is slow, later is exciting' would generate many people who drop out.
I heard that this project is a media mix of anime and game. (game is later) So I believe the repeated annihilation by asteroid is something like 'GAME OVER: continue?'.
Maybe we need to interpret this as something like that.

And sorry, it was bit confusing. I didn't mean that every foreshadowing will be unveiled in ep 6.
They say that the key episode to understand this story is ep 6.

If you haven't notice earlier - characters names are essentially a bunch of wordplays:

秩父ラブラ / Chichibu Rabura / Chichi Burabura (ちちぶらぶら) / Shaking tits
成木野みかたん / Narugino Mikatan / Seigi no Mikata (正義の味方) / Champion of justice
伊里優太/ Iridatsu Yuuta / Yuutai Ridatsu (幽体離脱) / Out-of-body experience
曳尾谷愛 / Hikiotani Ito / Hikiota Niito (ヒキオタニート) / Shut-in otaku NEET
台初明香 / Daihatsu Meika (ダイハツメーカー) / Daihatsu manufacturer

How can you explain this one though?
I mean how did 成木野 get transformed into 正義?

The second episode was much better. Maybe because it wasn't trying to cram as much craziness as possible. It was pretty funny and had actual character moments.

It's... interesting that Rabura's name is the only one not describing her job or situation.

This one is wrong. The pun is that "hatsumeika" means "inventor" so it's 大発明家, eg. "great inventor".

成 (naru) can also be read as "sei" so "narugino" becomes "seigino" which is a homophone with 正義の.

Right, should have used my brain better before asking...
Kun reading is naru/nasu and On reading is sei/jou.
