Momo really is the galaxy's best granddaughter. Her whole reasoning behind sandal and splash were precious. Had me laughing during her entire meltdown.

As for other troubles, Hina calls out to Rei before her sister. To the rescue again.

When the episode started off with the laughs, I knew a knife was coming straight for the feels. And man did it deliver.

Just as I thought things were looking up for Rei's mood recently - BAM, depression comes again like waves in the sea.
And the nail in the coffin? Hina presumably being bullied .

If true, Rei's been there before, and still hasn't completely escaped the grasp of the past (he might never will), but I would love for him to go all berserk and trash them with all he's got, and top it off with a Shogi board smackdown.

I really want to know what Rei does now, and whether it will be a turning point for him. Curse you, week delays.

A while back, it was announced that this season would be part of an anti-bullying campaign in Japan. I can see why now. I'm curious to know what Rei plans on doing about Hina's situation now that he's seen her like this.

I could have definitely done with more of the second half and less of the first. I suppose it was intended as emotional counterbalance but it just felt like a lot of needless yelling with no real purpose to me. Then again, I really never have been a fan of Nikaido so almost any of him is too much for me. I'm really interested in where the second half is going though. Given Rei's history he certainly has an in on what it's like to be bullied but it's obvious that he himself still doesn't really understand it and hasn't even gotten over it either.

God. I was so absorbed in this episode that it seemed like it was over in a flash.

All these bullying subplots in anime really get to me. I was terrorized as a kid and teenager. Pretty-much perma-teased from 2nd grade until HS graduation. It's seriously a wonder I didn't snap tbh. Poor Hina. Just damn. Those tears almost made me cry.

Anyways Momo for MVP! Also I would waifu marry Akari in a heart-beat.

So good. Though I read the manga this still gets to me. And think the first part is here sand chances are next will be like a continuation of the first part and have part 2 and 3 maybe.

Ooh that last scene has my blood boiling. Love the setup for Rei's character growth though.

That was very rough to see Hina be the subject of bullying. In this episode, she felt like a husk; compared to her usual cheer and vigor. I thought that she was just missing Rei, but it turns out to be much worse. We haven't seen much of her school life, but, upon reflecting on this episode, I do think its alarming that we don't see her hanging out with friends (other than Rei). There was that one time with the crush in the restaurant, but that's not a usual thing. I'm curious as to why she's being bullied and how her situation can get resolved. Seeing the bullying of Rei from classmates and family, then that sortof pain inflicted on Hina is heartbreaking. Its also troubling that Hina didn't share her problems with Akari before it got to this point. On a side note, I've recently watched A Silent Voice, and bullying was prominent there as well. I'm thankful for these shows that bring attention to bullying.

I'm very curious as to how Rei will react to this. He's been through a lot of bullying in the past. Now someone he deeply cares about is being bullied!? I would be surprised if his reaction doesn't have an element of anger.

I don't remember if Hina's age was ever mentioned before, but she's in middle school and I think her classmate (the baseball player) was looking at high schools, so that should be enough to guess her age. I only looked it up to make sure.
