guess I'll be the first to post about this episode and unfortunately its going to be negative.

I really dont think they could have made the heroine any more opposite her previous character than they have in this episode and I really hope for this anime's sake they don't keep her as they just portrayed her because this anime will go downhill fast if thats so.

I agree!!! I love her character but that last moment was very annoying. The other two should have given her a good slap to snap her out of it. I wouldn't have been so hard on her if she was a kid, but she is 18 year old! As you said, hopefully this does not happen again.

She was having really bad culture shock, would you flip out if you suddenly realized just how wide the gap between the haves and the have nots are?

Your posts were REALLY confusing.. I finally figured out what you mean -.-
I didn't even find it annoying, maybe I've watched more anime or something?
So the screenwriter seems to want to imply and connect the fact that Kuniko's mind has been limited to only so much can be done in Duomo (her staring at the baby, at the hospital room, at the chocolate)

I guess to people who have been fed by the Internet this seems weird, especially anime nowadays. But worry not, the point is not Kuniko being ignorant and suicidal (lol the comments made me thought so), it's more trying to emphasize the 'you won't know until you see it'

And anymore strong posts like these (esp the shoutbox) and I'll get even more confused next time O.O
And so, this anime seems to gear towards more philosophy than action (e.g. KagaminSama was expecting someone to get shot)

But yeah cultural differences, I've seen people moving from place to place, class to class, and I myself have moved around quite a lot between countries, and seen animes depicting it. As tara said, it's basically culture shock.

Cultural shock is a concept that can't, or very hard to be understood by those who never felt it. Even now, as I've moved for years between countries, I still get cultural shocks due to generation shifts o.o

Enjoy the show o.o It's promising in a certain way, though I agree it's not everyone's cup of tea

Well said! I would like to add that it's hard to judge a show or series by 3 episodes.
Anyway I found that what outsiders think is that they are entering paradise area and that's not the case one bit. Looking forward to seeing how this develops.
