The Episode Title "Blackout" Im thinking its when Koko-san gets completely shut out of Mitsuo's life. Since this episode was that indeed, where Mitsuo tells Koko off.


Yea, I can see where that would fit the title. I was thinking something like a flashback would occur with Banri & the flashback caused him to blackout.

The funny thing is... they stopped literally 5 pages shy... 5 pages... after blasting through 100 pages... But it was good!

Oh, how important in your opinion are those 5 pages?

Except the near yandere Koko. That was not cool. But, hey, it's realistic. Sometimes people do really awful stuff and regret it later.


You should see her in the manga. She just completely snaps in comparison to here; downright terrifying and even a bit more violent.


I wish I had the energy to read original sources. Seems I've been constantly running into the situation of LN being the source and the anime and manga being so inconsistent with each other. Either having moved or altered scenes, or having them replaced completely with an entirely different scene.

ep 4

aww, watching Chinami get yelled at by Koko was heartbreaking



but at least Koko knows that what she is doing is wrong now and they're finally making progress on her moving on from Mitsuou

also, Mitsuou and Chinami make a cute couple

and the ending was so expected since the first time we met Linda

I find Chinami adorable. That was hard to watch. I expected Banri to step in there before Mitsuo.

SAO... totally ruined trying to read a manga concurrently with the anime for me.

Love this show, the Honey and Clover love train kills me here (as I've been the caboose once lol) The pacing does seem fast but I once watched Death Note and thought "this is clearly going to be a 12 episode anime, no way it can go 24" and well.. that was wrong... so as long as the ride is great I'll enjoy it no matter the pace.

Pretty important I'd say. I'm pretty sure they'll start episode 5 with them.
But it is a bit odd, considering that they also skipped/postponed the first 5 pages and seem to have left out some stuff from there they may have to skip this as well. They will probably just skip to the call...

It is adapted from the novels for time, order, to give the episodes dramatic beginnings and endings. It is quite faithful to the original material but also quite adapted for TV which is a good thing I think. While a bit rushed it was probably lucky to get 24 episodes so they have to move quickly with it to try and get as far as they can as a second season is always unlikely for material like this these days.

Interesting. Makes me anticipate the next episode even more. Hopefully, the 5 pages will be at the beginning next week.

Hmm, will Chinami be part of the love-triangle thats going to form, probably? With Chinami,Linda and Koko, all going for Tada-Banri xD! Or will Chinami date the other dude?

Read up on the manga and I'd say we only have an episode or two before we catch up to what's translated. This Linda thing makes me wonder how much of this show is going to be about Banri's inner demons. This is turning into a great season.

I hope not at this point. If Chinami joined the Tada love conga that would just absolutely BREAK Mitsuo I feel.

I have seen no hints from Chinami that she likes Tada. She is friendly yeah, but not really hinted at of being any more than that.

The best moment of the story so far: When Kouko yells at Mitsuo that if their memories don't mean anything to him, to forget them all, then, after he leaves, what is she upset about? Is it that the man she has loved and followed around for her entire life just made it perfectly clear that he will never even date her, let alone marry her? NO! She is upset because she just used forgetting all of your childhood memories as a way to express her anger and she is worried about how much that must have hurt BANRI, her only real friend.

That is the moment when Kouko became a real girl and not an archetype.

Wow, things started moving pretty fast this episode. I'm pleasantly surprised that they aren't trying to drag out the status quo established in the first 3 episodes. Plus the reveal we all knew was coming. Even though it was totally expected, I still felt excited.

so.... is this show supposed to make me sympathize with Koko the way Banri does, or is it trying to make me hate her? because it's doing a good job of the latter, and a very bad job of the former. I'm not really sure Banri is using the correct head to think with.
