Oho, looks like there's gonna be a new male character. Gotta say, sawako is way cuter now that she's not scaring people off. Looks like she's getting more and more determined to get closer to Shota. This season should be good stuff.
They were faithful to the manga though - 1 chapter per episode. Unless they are going to speed up the incredibly frustrating slow pace (only frustrating because they're both so stupid about it!), in which case, I would be very happy.
