He never would have pulled it off if Mikorin wasn't such a popular heroine.

That's a good point! This last episode did a great job showing their friendship with how they interact without other people around. The episode really peaked with Chiyo walking in the next day and finding the aftermath.

This is the other amazing anime of this season that has made me laugh out loud more than once. It's also one of the few my son is watching and weekly asks if I've seen the latest episode. So, it's pretty drat good.

I'm a big fan.

Okay!

So, I've, like, designed a really sweet attack plan that I'm calling Attack Plan Ded Moroz, like "Deadmau5!"

WUB!


Just watched the episode.

Mikorin and Kashima are the natural pairing. She's the only one manly enough to handle his girliness.

The show actually skipped one of my favorite jokes during the first episode. It was part of the "We aren't allowed to show alcohol or cigarettes" section. Here it is for those of you who are only watching the anime.

Chiming in late for the praise, but goddamn is this show fun. Miyuki Sawashiro is just too perfect for Seo. She's basically playing a character that looks like Ayane but behaves like Chizu and I have a hard time not seeing that. Also, two weird things regarding two terrible shows that are incredibly popular:
  • I know that Yuuichi Nakamura has a fairly standard pretty boy voice, but every time Nozaki opens his mouth to insert his foot, I cannot help but to think of a version of Tatsuya from Mahouka and that makes me laugh like an idiot just imagining that.
  • Kashima basically reminds me of Yui Takamura, but instead of fighting aliens and getting over her PTSD by going tsundere for some American pretty boy , she only has a couple of shrimps to fight in order to get beat up by her Senpai Hori's undivided attention.
And finally:


I watched episode two and, taking into account the episode's name, I though it was going to be about Seo becoming the heroine. But no, the heroine was introduced to us in the very first episode. Best heroine.

I think one of the best things about this series is how people can gloss over or come into it with some misconceptions, like how some people thought this was going to be a straight up shoujo romance with some comedy.

And what they get in the end is a loony bin. A glorious loony bin.

What Nozaki and Mikorin had with Tomoda was real, not something from a loony bin .

We've finally been introduced to the real essence of Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun: Tanukis.

Looks like Wakamatsu will finally show up in the next episode. This is good.

Also, Ken's voice is a hell of a lot deeper than I expected.

About 7 minutes in, and I can't stop laughing at the constant "MAMIKO!!! " shouts. Nozaki really is the worst greatest shoujo mangaka.

Honestly, one of my favorite parts about the anime adaption is that they're expanding on the in-universe manga panels. It just makes it so much better.

e: the entire Kashima on a cart sequence had me dying with all of its dramatic angles. So excited for the next episode, why isn't it next week already

I honestly don't know what's better: Wakamoto's narration spoiling the fact that Yamamoto shanked Ponsuke! or Nozaki's reaction to learning that fact.

Daisuke Ono was perfectly cast for the role of Maeno. MAENOOOOOO!

Oh my god. Wakamatsu confessed his love of Seo to her face and he doesn't even realize it. And Seo decided to let him go on instead of just telling him out of sadism. And she takes him out to dinner and buys him presents. This manga/anime is amazing.

Waka is such a dork

I am glad he's finally been introduced, because the scenes where he plays off Seo are some of the funniest in the manga, although we probably won't get some of them without a second season.

e: Although the second part of the episode was Chapter 20, so I guess they're not too worried about jumping around a little.

Yeah, the jumping around makes me hopeful that we'll get to see villain Wakamatsu and the second otome game chapter. Even if we don't, I'm still more than satisfied with this adaptation.

The second one? I didn't realize there was more than the one. Which hopefully we will get, because it was the most hilarious thing.

There's the one with Mikorin and Tomoda that we've already seen, and the second one has Hori and Wakamatsu which I hope we'll get, if it's unclear what I'm referring to.

Edit: I guess I shouldn't have specified otome game there, since the first one wasn't one.

I think he's referring to the girls' dating game as the first one. But yeah, we should definitely see that chapter animated; the staff did an entire April Fool's trailer for the otome game, and I don't think they'd let the assets go to waste.

Haven't had the chance to see the episode yet, but I am so glad to hear the rooftop scene is still gold. And I hope the entire screen tone section is in there... For some reason Waka is in almost all my favorite chapters, so I'm pretty happy he's introduced.

Seo is so oblivious that she doesn't realize her boyfriend hates her, but at least she realizes they're dating in the first place.

How did Seo and Waka's dates even start, anyway? She stresses him out to the point of insomnia, you'd think he'd want to spend more time away from her.
