Episode 2

And now, Koshiyama is in his first quiz bowl, and he's not exactly well-versed with the buzzer not knowing that he's not supposed to press the button when somebody's light is up. Just when it looked like Fukami was fast, the competition is even faster, but at least she's moving on. Koshiyama happens to squeak into the next round by answering zettai ryouiki after only hearing the word miniskirt, and as fate would have it, that's the question. Well, this show just isn't working for me, but I'll see this competition to the end at the very least.

Saw episode 2.

It progressing to the fact he is now involve in the Quiz club . Its ok. Nothing likable about any of the characters but about our female actor's voice acting, it reminds me of another actor doing the VA in Erased, Shinnouske Mitsushima and Tao Tsuchiya ,the VA of young Satoru. Their Line delivery is very similar but I like his better.

Totally watching this for Fukami. I think the voice suits her personality and is more down to earth than most anime characters. She's nerdy, confident and a bit tomboyish. She's passionate about the quiz stuff and genuinely happy to see others succeed.

Just watched episodes 1 and 2. Thought the premise and characters were interesting enough from the first episode. Then, it definitely picked up for me in the second. I also love that there are silly sexual innuendos, without the actual drawing of it all. The library scene at the start of ep 2 made me crack up. Excited for ep 3.

Also since everyone's talking about it..I was also really surprised at Fukami Mari's VA at the start, but I'd say partly it seemed like it didn't fit, partly it sounded slightly better in ep 2, and partly I think im already starting to like it

It's bit refreshing the MC never made it past the second round. Many competitive stuff I think the MC seems to be the best.

That ends the first quiz bowl. Interesting, MC is weak now, but he'll soon be a monster. At least I hope.

That was a fun episode. It was good to see the MC try out various techniques. He has a lot of talent and would do really well in the hard rounds but he needs some work to get past the easier rounds.

Also loving Mikuriya. He's arrogant but not the brash, in your face character that so many antagonists are.

Will also say Mikuriya is the type that gets bored easily since he's way better then the others though sees a challenger in the MC that he knows would make it fun.

Ugh after watching a show like March Comes in Like a Lion take a game like Shogi and make it compelling this show is just so underwhelming. I love trivia but this show is not showcasing it very well in fact it's made me actually hate quiz bowl. I also don't think I could take another episode of sempai dramatically pushing his glasses back up his nose

Episode 3

That Mikuriya dude sure gave Koshiyama a lot of hell in that round. The rules are different in that everybody can answer and get something if they know it, but the person who buzzes in gets three for each correct answer and loses three if wrong. Even with that, Koshiyama misses on a lot of questions as it's a matter of predicting what will be asked, and Koshiyama sucks at that. And then Koshiyama acted on impulse outing the answer even though he's not in the final round. It's all about keywords, emphasis, and sounds, and all of that Koshiyama needs to work on seeing that he thought that the host was about to say David when it is Da Vinci he was going to say. He might have had better luck if Mikuriya wasn't so damn fast, but because the cutoff is much sooner that Koshiyama didn't stand a chance against him. Tough break, but seeing that this is his first competition that of course it's expected that he would be weak.
