dang it, Nitta! You blew it! Ah, Utako looked great in her casual clothes. The puppet at the end and Hina's expression was so so so so funny.

The beginning with Anzu was also pretty touching, and the yakuza lawyer expanding Hina's bullet list of a speech was killing me. Another 10/10 episode.

Talking about Utako, I wonder what's the writers' intentions with her. Already in the opening we see her making cry Anzu and Hitomi for different reasons. A bit harsh

^ She can definitely be harsh and cut throat. But my opinion of Utako went up after seeing her help feed the homeless and participate in that protest opposed to removing them from their homes.

Hina's story about running for student council president was hilarious from start to finish. Her speech was just brilliant. And poor Hitomi is going to get even busier because of her.

Anzu's story was more heartwarming than funny, as usual.

People who never read manga may misunderstand this series as drama.
It's mainly comedy and less drama materials in latter chapter.
If its go on in this direction. It's likely has original content in few last episodes.
Still hope they will do America chapter.
I read the manga, and the anime seems perfect to me, perfectly balanced, with a mood of misunderstanding.

well i'm also read the manga and to be honest i feel which they make hina too much "nice person" specially with nitta for what i remember in the beginner nitta situation was more like a "hostage" aways scared to hell of her and she taking advantage of him, ofcourse sometimes she was really good with him but overal she was really "bad toward him in the beginner aways threatening nitta whenever he was against her take sometime until they really started to look like a father and a daughter.

Don't forget she was one to arrange Anzu's new home.

I think those scenes were deliberately exaggerated. The scene of Anzu crying has been shown: she gets money and suddenly it's all taken away to pay for all her thefts. I'm guessing the Hitomi scene was when she was learning all the different cocktails against her will. Hina's rain scene was when she was briefly abandoned. All three recovered quickly and became happier for it, and frankly none of them were set up to be all that hopeless or tragic.

Hina's attempts to become student council president, especially her speech was hilarious. Looks like thanks to her, Hitomi will now have an even more packed schedule.

Wait. Utako was the lady that chased Anzu for stealling?!? I thought that was someone from the supermarket? That also has black hair. Because what would Anzu even steal from a bar?!?

What klinched the speech scene was the moment when she was interrupted and gave her usual 1000 yards stare of confusion which made me flash back to the last episode and I knew that she is likely going to just restart from where she was stopped. And was right on money

Also pronouncing stage directions

That scene with the puppet always make me to wish for a live action version of Hinamatsuri, with Jean Reno as Nitta, a young Natalie Portman as Hina and a plant in the role of the pots, lol.

Takako Tanaka's deadpan is absolutely fantastic. She's a complete newbie seiyuu, but she's got quite the starting role.

you do not understand, I mean that the essential of the anime is the same as the manga, having the same kind of humor.

I think it's silly to care about these minimal changes that do not affect the story at all, it seems like manga fans who want something 100% equal, even when sometimes adaptation makes something more meaningful, as the end of the Ajin first season anime

it's not about being a "perfect mirror about source", i really don't mind changes but as long i feel they are good and make sense, for me one thing is take something which is fun and make it even more fun, another is take like characters personality or focus being in one "way" in the source then you change it almost completely in the anime, a good exemple was dagashi kashi, the first season was horrible due to diretor or writers making the childhood friend focus while it not was the source focus it make anime bad and many peoples criticized it because, they made a "not needed change", the manga was good in the way it was, in th second season they took away that "focus" on the first season and just focused on what is needed.

That is my real problem with "changes", i don't mind good changes "but really bad ones i care".

The fact which nitta and hina relationship was really bad in beginner was part of comedy many good moments in manga where exactly because of that, because hina was much more a "selfish person" and it helped the comedy but here they toned it a little to make her a more "emotionless and lethargic person"( more than she was really) ofcourse they cut something here and there and change some orders, but still good part of the humor was really how they relationship started.

I'm not sayign which what they are doing is terrible or a big change but i do feel the mangas still much more fan than the anime, i really don't feel having the same fun i have with the manga, i really feel like the changes made here take away a part of the fun, but still funny overal but for sure i do feel the manga was much more fun, not because of being "source" but the comedy is much better than the anime at last for me.

the same joke told a second time is less funny than the first, this is just common sense, you already know what will come.

who just saw the anime, has no complaint.

Just when you think Anzu & Hitomi have left Hina behind and they should get more screentime over her, she makes a solid comeback this ep with her deadpan face, tone that accompany her absolute cluelessness. There's no more doubt now that when it comes to scenes involving Nitta, Hina adds the most to them ~ the iconic duo right there. As great as Anzu & Hitomi are in their own way, neither of them would make as good as a "partner" for him as Hina, at least when it comes to the show's entertainment value :P And that's great as you feel like everyone has a unique role and none of them could be replaced by the other.
