they better hurry up and make a decision if they will be making a second season and not sit around for 2 years before they figure out "hey this was popular lets add a season"

this episode felt much better than the last one more like a main course vs an entree the last one felt like. although they have moved away from the comedic aspects the earlier episodes had it didn't feel too soap operaish.

Again...

We most likely will not get an announcement of a second season until as early as April or as late as June.

We will most likely not see a second season until next October.

If anything happens sooner I will be pleasantly surprised.

*sigh* cant they plan ahead before they air the first season? i mean they should do something like... "hey if the first season goes well we should make a second one! but if it doesnt then forget it..." i mean what is so wrong with doing that.... -.- that way they dont have to get a million fan letters complaining for more and waste more money on working on starting another season later when they can do it now -.-

Because if the anime is a flop there won't be a second season. It's a business after all.

This episode kinda felt Frankenstein-ed together, didn't it? So awkward... 'sighs miserably' Ah well... at least one of the scenes I was looking forward to should be in the next episode. Though to be honest, I don't see how they're gonna finish off the whole of the Katsuki arc in just one episode... and they better not cliffhanger it before THAT scene. 'growls dangerously'

It felt like this episode was there purely to build up suspense for the next one. I thought there would be a little more included, but I guess it's more dramatic to end it on "What's this? Tsuruga can't act?!"

At least that means the scene everyone's waiting for is next. They'll probably milk it for all it's worth and end on some big cliff-hanger, but then it would leave too much stuff to cram into the last episode. Well, unless they just decide to jump off the tracks completely and do something original, with Sho involved. Gah, I can't figure this out. I wanna see ALL of the Katski arc but I can't see how it's possible. I really hope the season will give us some small fragmented feeling of closure...

Or at least tell us if there's any intention of a second run.

There's got to be a second season.This anime has a lot of fans...

Anyway, episode 23.I know it is just fiction and stuff, but when an actor watches the show of the same character one is working on , the actor is dooming oneself.Character work starts from researching the charcater, one's biography , his upbringing ,where he lives, but never watch someones else take on the character.Which is why Ren is having a problem now.
I love character work for acting but it is a long painstaking process but worth it in the end.

Oh yes, I agree. Always cliff hangers. I guess that's what drives me to insanity waiting for the next episode. My friend was so eager to know that she actually went to read the manga to get the answer. HAHA. Anyway, this episode was good. I liked it, then again, I liked all the other episodes. & I hope there's a second season...and that episode 25 isn't a cliff hanger...because I don't think I can wait that long. xD

i really liked this episode...it's good that the anime shows that ren as some flaws too...haha...he's perfect in every other aspect though! lol...anyway, the next episode should rock! cuz kyoko's going to help him out...and all you manga readers know what THAT means...woot woot! haha...and there is no way in heck that this anime ends at one season! just not possible! A SECOND SEASON IS REQUIRED!

The manga shows that there are deeper reasons behind Ren's desire to surpass the original than just doing a good job. Though they won't go into them in the first season of the anime (it's part of a later story arc). The is a very personal role for Ren both as an actor and as a person.

All the more reason to hope for season 2

Yeah, I agree, it's always really fun when you've got a character down. It's so awesome when you know you can even improv. I love seeing Kyoko go through the whole process. I'm sure a lot of people didn't realize what all goes into it, which makes this series so cool. And in Ren's case, he's probably gotten so used to doing it that it's about time for him to struggle and actually try harder to learn a part. Makes acting it so much more fun with that feeling of accomplishment

They'll probably end episode 24 right in the middle of THAT scene just to piss us off and make us scream for more.
