Episode 4

It's off to Kyoto for the class trip, but before that everybody's baggage is checked as no cell phones are allowed during the ride. So after a day of touring as a class, the next day is all free time, and Akane is looking to make this a souvenir shopping date with Kotarou. But things don't go as planned as Kotarou is late and without his phone, he couldn't call her and had to use Chinatsu's. But they did finally meet, and all is well again. Lots of drama here as no matter what happens, they are in this together in the end.

Hey, so...are they going out now or is it just a step closer to them communicating?

A step closer I think. She wants to talk and make sure before deciding.

So I guess a lot I thought might happen didn't, though I did think for a second it might when Kotarou ran into Chinatsu and they got talking but in the end she proved to know what's happening between him and Akane and helped him out. I'm not sure if I was hoping somehow she'd hit on him and get him to reluctantly hang out with her to add some drama but in the end she turned out to be a nice and thoughtful friend.

This show seems content to bumble along at a slow pace with still no decision on if she wants to go out with him despite her obviously liking him and becoming jealous of the fact Chinatsu can talk to him easily and familiarly. She's actually kind of a jerk for dragging things out and giving him hope when she doesn't even know what she wants to do. Granted they have not known each other long and have barely interacted except over LINE so there is that but dragging things out makes it painful for him and us the viewer because we might have to go through a whole season before she gives a straight answer lol.

On a side note the whole phone confiscating thing was odd to me, don't know if that's common practice but seems counter productive lol. What if a student gets lost or in trouble? Wouldn't it make sense for them to be able to call a teacher or the police? I'm sure they'd want to take photos for memories too so why they'd refuse to let them have phones I don't know. Seemed a bit convoluted just for the sake of setting up a drama moment where they have a near miss and don't get to go on a date.

I'm a fan of Chinatsu after this episode she's a bright and cheerful girl who really cares for people. He should dump the "I don't know what I want but I'm too nice to say no" girl who got pissy for him because the teacher took his phone and he couldn't contact her. I mean he was soaking wet he'd obviously been running around looking for her and she only thinks of herself and gets all jealous and petty. Dump this toxic girl Kotarou and go with the kind girl who gives you crappy bandages and smiles.

The school trip begins! The banning of phones brings up some issues although they seem to be resolved and maybe even helped out in the end.

Are there some other anime with a similar animation style to this? I'm in love with all the the soft colors this show is so pretty!

Episode 5

Kotarou is hard at work preparing for the festival, while Akane continues to train. But of course with those two thinking about each other so much that their performances are starting to suffer. Kotarou has writer's block, while Akane's performance just hasn't been running like usual. And just like with the other episodes so far, Kotarou and Akane struggle and then have a private time together to talk about how things are going, this time at a shop that Kotarou's friend runs. Those two are definitely going through tough times, especially since Chinatsu now wants Kotarou, and thus a love triangle is formed.

I imagined that Chinatsu would have been perceptive to Akane and Kotarou's relationship, or at least had some inkling of it. After all, she did witness Kotarou calling for Akane, and then the library meetup. I guess not. I do hope Akane and Kotarou make their relationship very clear to her, or this could turn messy if they don't address it quickly.

The skits at the end were fun. Much to the dismay of the girls, Kotarou's friend has the ability to estimate people's weight.

Really like what i see from the show, but like Auster said. Really thought Chinatsu would have had an idea of what was going on Kind of really worried how this love triangle will play out. Legit, one person just has to speak up. I get keeping it secret, but damn. Not like this

The most hilarious part though is the cellphone vs them seeing each other. Thinking back, I personally never had a cellphone till I was in highschool and 16. Literally nobody had a cellphone in middle school. So, I never encountered situations where it was texting like mad at night, but when your face to face. You can barely talk So, its really interesting seeing how much times have changed in that department (at least for me). It was writing notes and throwing/passing it to said girl during class

Some animation in this episode was horrible especially the creepy CGI mannequins. Their relationship is a bit weird too they don't want to tell anyone they are dating and they don't interact with each other in public because of this it's like they are still not really committing to the relationship.

They did eventually meet up and have a cute moment foiled by Akane doing what she read not to do which was check her LINE on a date, we now have a love triangle which will probably become a square when runner guy gets involved he's dropped hints that he likes Akane around her but she's about as receptive as a brick to these sorts of things. Kotaru and Akane are sort of cute together but they really don't seem like they want to go out I get they are supposed to be shy and stuff but all their interactions are so awkward and they avoid each other like the plague.

Kotaru seemed to be having fun with Chinatsu and they talk easily though really not sure what all these girls see in him because he has no interesting character traits whatsoever lol. I do think they are a better fit just like Akane should probably date the other guy but they'll probably end up together just fine in the end. I'd be happier if they just decide "maybe we shouldn't be dating because we don't work as a couple" it'd show growth and maturity.

Also the girl randomly dropping this line...



You're in middle school why are you talking about going to love hotels close your legs!
