I hope shit doesn't get too serious. The development here is really going at a snail's pace, but honestly, Sadako's slowness is part of her goodness. I like that so far, instead of slipping into the usual drastic "Believe in yourself!"/"Be yourself!"/"Let other people act for you!" trap that a lot of this stuff falls into, Sadako is just naturally and slowly adjusting herself. She's a little too emotional about it sometimes, but otherwise she's really easy to sympathise with. Mega-drama might ruin it >__>

Truths. She'll be that much more awesome of a character if she's able to fend off that stuff without relying on the guy to do it for her :|

This is fast falling under the typical Guy-is-too-perfect-always-there-to-save-girl-and-say-exactly-the-right-things-all-the-time trap that most shojo anime gets caught up in. Not that thats particularly a bad thing, I guess some people like an escape from reality in their anime ;p still, I for one rather the guy be a little more realistic myself. Mitsuru Adachi's characters for example have a very good balance of guys who are cool in subtle ways, yet still sometimes make mistakes. Thats what I love about his mangas the most.

Actually I think it's refreshing that the guy in this case is just as shy about being around her as she is him. And that she's TOTALLY oblivious to it. I hope for the best. This show makes me feel all melty with romantic ooze. I wuv it.

True, I do like that about him. (though it does get a bit too cheesy at times, maybe just slightly overdone). And he does seem to be hinting about something in his past, or maybe something he is hiding, gives me that impression when he keeps saying hes "not really refeshing" and has the look like hes thinking about something....

Anyways we shall see ;p

And eps 3:
Spoiler :
Considering her personality If I was those girls I would find it pretty hard to beelive Sawako would spread those rumors.... I predict they will side with sawako on this one.

Sooo...she stays hidden a bit longer.

Spoiler :
Girls are scary .__. I find myself wondering now what the reactions will be of the two friend girls. They seemed to buddy up to Sadako pretty quickly, which I found just a hair suspicious. Hopefully their intentions as her friends hold up and they don't believe that garbage :/

Sawako is a idiot. She is digging her own grave here. She's sure got a strange way of thinking ...

Sawako really has a way of totally misreading things xD Kazehaya getting all blushy and embarrassed around her was way cute tho >O<

I've read what there is of the manga so far tho, so I'm hoping this rumors arc gets concluded in the next episode and the animators don't try to drag it out x3

This show has been the biggest surprise of the season so far for me. I'm enjoying it a hell of alot more then I thought I would originally (mostly because the preview for it was misleading). It's got that soft fluffy romance atmosphere I remember from bokura mixed with a main character like the one from the anime wall flower (without the outbursts though which is good).

Definitely up there on the favorite romance animes list. All I could ask for now is an epic confession and ending.

This girl is so innocent/caring she could make an angel seem evil... My thoughts:

Will be watched to the end.
"The people cannot be [...] always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to [...] the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to public liberty. What country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned [...] that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."-Thomas Jefferson

Episode 4 was mighty depressing. D: But still awesome. I'm really enjoying this series so far.
The preview for episode 5 looks very promising, too. Can't wait!

ARG.

Spoiler :
Show is moving slooowly. I'm impressed at the two girls. I had them pegged totally wrong, they're good people ;_; And it was awesome how they proved Sadako... 200%!!! But I really hope their doubts don't get the better of them. And somehow I think the girl who is orchestrating this whole thing is in for quite a bit of trouble when they find out D:

(I wonder if she'll end up being friends with the group after some bitchslapping.....kinda like Shibahime from KareKano....lulz will ensue)
