Akane and Kotarou's chemistry has made a huge step forward with Kotarou's confession in this week's episode. So adorable

22 minute mark he asked her out was down to wire but he did it. The awkwardness and easier to text than talk face to face was spot on for young romance. The pacing is good slow moving but realistic for sure.

Would you go out with me? I loved the gentle delivery of that question. I hope Akane gives a favorable response. If not a yes, I do hope she spends more time with Kotarou.

This is among the few school-setting anime that's very relatable. I feel like I'm watching myself, or my classmates in middle school. I couldn't help but chuckle when the two were fretting over texting. Also liked how they conversed more through texting than face-to-face. I had a friendship that started in a similar manner.

Really liking the chemistry build up between Akane and Kotarou and the texting segment between the two of them is so great! Quite a surprise in episode 3 with Kotarou confessing but personally was handled really well and exited to see the response next week.

Well he confessed sooner than I was expecting but still time for confession and drama. In these shows they don't often get together right away so I'm thinking she's going to tell him that the other guy in her track club already asked her out and she accepted. He's going to go out with short haired girl just because it allows him to be close to Akane even if he's not really into short hair and eventually break ups happen and the two of them get together.

Or she could say yes and we spend the rest of the series watching them build a romance and the conflict comes from track guy being jealous.

The ED makes me believe it's a slow and steady progression toward a closer relationship.
It's possible we'll see more inner conflict as they try to deal with their own feelings about first love romance.

Their nervousness over text messaging was clearly felt!

Oh wow, that insert song this episode was nicely performed.

Once again we get to see some athlete competition (track and field). I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing a lot of that. Akane and Kotarou's character chemistry feels slow but progressing. I wonder if Akane will accept after being asked out? That actually caught me off guard at the end.

Also, I feel like the moon in this show is symbolizing something but not sure what yet.


The song was a cover of Hatsukoi by Kozo Murashita, a hit song in the 80's. My body literally shook when the first verse came out in the episode.

Oh wow at the rate this was going I really didn't think we'd get the confession already, love that there are no relatives or classmates involved and it's just the two main characters.
And BTW for those who are missing the Japanese-ness of the scene, the title, and Akane saying "the moon is pretty tonight' and laughing at herself. It all related to this : .A famous historical Japanese writer, Soseki Natsume, had difficulty translating the sentence, "I love you". In his era, they were thinking that Japanese men should not express their feeling of love obviously or openly, for it sounds frivolous; thus there was no counterpart for the word, "love", in Japanese culture then. As an anecdote which is not sure to be all true though, it's said that he translated the sentence, "I love you", into this: The moon looks beautiful today.

This means that the Japanese traditional man can't say, "I love you", because it is too open. So, he said it euphemistically by mentioning the somehow beautiful-looking moon. "The moon looks beautiful today; it must be because I'm seeing it with you."

The Moon is Beautiful ( Tsuki ga Kirei ) ONA EP 1 "Spring and Hard Times" / EP 2 “A Handful of Sand”

A little slow but has Potential / The animation art is good

The Moon is Beautiful ( Tsuki ga Kirei ) ONA EP 3 “Howling at the Moon”

Kotaro asks Akane out but Takumi almost asked Akane out and Akane's friend Chinatsu likes Kotaro This is getting good

Why cant more romance anime be like this / the will you go out with me is asked in a simple setting no stupid tropes etc

I think it's usually pretty realistic in Japanese terms, Japanese guys take forever to ask a girl out it's a very long process of hanging out while dancing around the issue of actually dating or committing to anything. I guess at least this time they did the less done thing of having him ask her out in episode 3 when often we spend a whole series before anybody admit they like each other despite the whole world seeming to know about it.

The big question is did the other guy confess to her first off screen? I suppose it's just my drama senses tingling but they are sitting together at the fast food place. Maybe everything will be fine and they'll start a very awkward but cute relationship.
