I get why they did it for plot reasons but, come on, there's no way anyone would have mixed up Hyodo and Tatara. Outside of that silliness, this was pretty easily the best episode of the series so far. I do hope that at some point Shizuku is actually allowed some control of her own destiny, though it does look like that may be the case next episode.

Back to back episode this week since! Although there won't be one next week.

Episode 4 was entertaining with Hyodo performance. Tatara really did push his buttons for him to go all out.



I really enjoyed episode 5, I think because it was the adolescents of Tatara and Mako when they were interacting. I don't know I just think they look really cute together.

Fujita doesn't appear to be so nervous by Tamaki's presence, so will likely try new moves and push his boundaries? Pretty amazing how their first dance together was so synchronized. Watch out once he learns Latin moves! Considering his tendency to overwhelm on the ballroom floor, I wonder if their Latin dancing will feel out of place due to her youth, or Fujita push her to perform at a much more mature level.

I thought both episodes were great this weekend.

Lot of emotions coming from characters like Hyodou and Shizuku. I like Mako so far, a bit shy for a character but has potential. If she is to become Tatara's partner, they do have a bit to work on still. Gaju is a strange guy imo...but seems to be quite skilled with Latin dancing.

I love the chereography used his episode especially at several key moments to capture to expressions of the characters. Comedy still remains funny for this show with Tatara's character.

I found it quite interesting how they managed to engage our sympathies for Hyodo by introducing an even bigger jerk, namely Gaju. And I admit while I understand why Shizuku might be pissed off at Hyodo for not being open and honest with her as his partner, throwing herself right into the arms of an obvious jerk makes me lose what sympathy I might have for her. All it demonstrates from her is a lack of judgement and a sulky character. I have kind of mixed feelings when it comes to Mako. She seems a bit too much the sweet girl stereotype that can be awfully annoying. I mean despite her brother being quite awful to her, clearly ditching her for another dancer without a thought for her feelings, blaming all their problems as couple on her (which I doubt was true, HE was probably too self involved to bring out the best in her), she still wants improve her dancing so he will take her back? Frankly, after all that and then being lucky enough to be paired up with a partner that does appreciate her, I'd think her quite stupid to not understand what an opportunity that was. IMHO Gaju deserves to end up with no partner.

But that tango was amazing. So I hope Hyodo returns soon.

At least I know that Kakegurui airs on Tokyo MX before MBS, but here it airs on MBS before anybody else and no wonder two episodes are airing next week on MBS as the other stations apparently aired it.

Episode 6

And now, Tatara is learning the rules of the dance floor as he failed to follow it and collided with Gaju in practice leading to a heated confrontation. But there's also the fact that he stopped, which is an even bigger crime. Then there's the Quickstep that's the key to victory in the Tenpei Cup, but that was quite a pain to learn, especially with the lack of chemistry between him and Mako. But after that phone call, they finally realize what they have to do, and now they are ready for the competition. Quite a nice turnaround there as those two definitely are hitting it.

this is the best show of the season. production I.G. stunning animation, the characters which are great (even thought shizuku annoys me a little), and the plot is great as well. I really enjoy watching this show and can't wait for the next episode.
the fact that tatara's parents are divorced should have gotten more attention in my opinion. my parents are divorced yet I still see both of them and they are on fine terms. tatara's mom probably cheated on his father which is why what gaju does really piss of tatara and I think they should have spent a little more time about it.

Well, this is turning into quite a rivalry:



Gaku is such a funny dude to watch in this show despite being talented. That flashback of him seeing Shizuku was just priceless.

I can't be the only one who prefers Tatara being paired up with Mako instead of Shizuku, can I?

That song at the end was amazing. That's what I was waiting for from my man Yuki Hayashi. That scene was awesome.

No, you're definitely not the only one. I don't even like Shizuku all that much at this point.

This week's episode will be airing tomorrow as MBS is airing episode 6 today, which aired last week on the other stations, to make up for skipping the station's broadcast for the IAAF World Championship, and then episode 7 tomorrow.
