Oh man, Nanasaki’s confession scene is pretty epic. First, she drags him all the way to a hidden hot spring at night, then she confesses straight-up to him, after that well… you guys can imagine what happens next, eh?

But while that was certainly nice, I couldn’t really say the same about the rest of the episode. First off that was that pretty retarded Oden-tasting thing with the random Tea Club members that took up like half the episode and the remainder was pretty much random service cuts about the rest of the cast doing stuff on the Founder’s Festival. Well there were two highlights though…

Amagami SS

Drunk teachers. Which are always fun to watch.

And Hibiki-senpai in a Santarina outfit. I lol’ed at her “I overcame a hurdle.” comment when Junichi asked her why she was in it. Must’ve involved quite a bit of Haruka in that, heh.

Junichi’s imagination also helped bring up the service scenes of Nanasaki in the episode, which is surprisingly low in quotient until the second half of the episode.

Hurr that last shot of yandere-mode Nanasaki would have been interesting to watch it develop further, hehe.

Overall, Nanasaki’s arc was… well, a bit weird, what with the almost fetishistic focus on food, and lacking much in real dramatic developments or turns, but it was well compensated by Nanasaki’s character. Combining seriousness with playfulness and a dash of confidence, Nanasaki’s character’s blend of sexiness really ranks her at the upper tier of the Amagami heroines so far. Not to mention she’s got a great theme song too. Her ED song is pretty much the best one released so far.

Next week is Sakurai Rihoko, who doesn’t really rank high for me. Probably due to the childhood friends and klutziness flag she both has. Well, I just hope she’ll turn out to be a pleasant surprise like Sae’s arc did. In any case, her seiyuu can sing, thankfully.

    “Dark Ai” was hilarious – wouldn’t have minded more of that :)

    Then again, thankfully, Ayatsuji is going to follow in 1 Month ^_^

    Can’t wait for Ayatsuji !!!
    But I also liked the Nanasaki-Arc ’cause of the direct personality Ai has – she’s willing to do things the other heroines wouldn’t do (just think of Sae-chwan)

    Hurr I hope Rihoko will develop a good story there…
    But I wouldn’t also mind seeing a Maya-Arc… but that’s not gonna happen :(

    “Why isn’t there gonna be a Takahashi Maya arc ;_;”

    Because the Teacher route is probably the most difficult as Keima would tell you. And Junichi, while likeable enough, is no capturing god =p

    Say Kuro-chan, have you seen the Real-Life Gundam look-a-like in Amagami SS?

    It seems that Kibitou High has some high budget to pull a giant robot…

    Drunken teacher = win!
    Miya stealing Sae for a sleepover = yuri win!
    Naked onsen confession = ULTIMATE EPIC WIN! nb nice tanlines, Ai-chan!
    Can’t wait to see Ayatsuji arc, she is probably most complicated character. Expect a bumpy ride! But for now relax and enjoy Rihoko clumsiness :P

    Kurogane its unforgivable you didn’t put the Sleep in the Lap scene with Ai-chan at the end. (By now, everyone hates Junichi for having such a wonderful experience)

    Ai Nanasaki Arc is the best arc overall beating Haruka Morishima’s arc. Yandere Ai is also a must.

    Ai Nanasaki is the type of girl that definitely exist 13 years ago (the friend of my mother’s daughter slept with me. She forced me to do so, reminds me of Ore no Imoto episode one surprise wakeup). Eventually we got into a relationship but my mind set back then is playing with my friends so it didn’t even last for six months and ended just like that.

    >>Takahashi Maya arc ;_;

    Sure, if you don’t mind her paying for every date you’re going to be on with her until you graduate from university or something.

    Huge blow for any man’s ego, not to mention Junichi’s.

    >>Say Kuro-chan, have you seen the Real-Life Gundam look-a-like in Amagami SS?

    That was so extremely out of place, I think my mind just erased it off this episode.

    >>Kurogane its unforgivable you didn’t put the Sleep in the Lap scene with Ai-chan at the end.

    What?! That’s not as exciting as confession scene Ai or yandere delusion Ai!

    >>Ai Nanasaki Arc is the best arc overall beating Haruka Morishima’s arc

    Nah, I still think Haruka’s arc was the best in overall terms. From the character to the story overall, it had impact. I think that’s why the other arcs are struggling hard to match it…

    >> the friend of my mother’s daughter slept with me.

    So you banged your sister’s friend? Hurr durr

    Haruka’s arc still wins because it shows that it didnt crumble 2 weeks later.

    Where is the fast forward 5-10 years for the other arcs?

    “Where is the fast forward 5-10 years for the other arcs?”

    Lol, maybe the other relationships didn’t last that long? No happily ever after for them =p

    That aside, Ai is definitely one of my favorite heroines, not just for this show, but my entire Anime-Experience :) Haruka just barely won her because I like her character design better, cheap I know ^^;

    But in terms of personalities? It’s a hard pick, and it doesn’t help that both VAs are my favorites, But for Ai, I kept picturing C.C @_@

    lol I guess either they got lucky or Ai was smart enough to take pills…

    That reminds me, how many times in all the dating sims there is not even a mention of contraceptives? It’s ridiculous how girls always say “its ok, its my safe day” or something like that…
    Though there was one game that I remember had one of girls good ending with her having a baby with protagonist – and the bad ending was her dying to pregnancy complications after she ran away from home.

    This. I’d really like some more long-term flash-forwards.

    yep that one! very good game imho, girls do have a lot of troubles to overcome… and I had fun trying to strangle Antoinette aka Queen Bee(tch) – but boy did she deserve this!

    If i was in Aeka’s position, i would kill that bitch and rape her until her brain melts.

    Aeka even tried to warn the stupid megalomaniac narcisstic bitch…
    “If that goes on, you better kill me…” (… before I kill you!) Still, everything is good that ends good.
    Though the arc I enjoyed most was that with Student Council Pres. She was just incredibly unpredictable. And the moral was that wild unprotected sex has consequences :P
    The Nekoko arc was, imho, weakest. Maybe because I have absolutely no drug-related experiences from rl. Though boy was I surprised when I’ve learned her true identity!
