I’ll keep this short, since this episode is probably old news to many of you by now (not to fault C1anime for taking long – I consider it ungrateful and insensitive to complain about fansubbers unless they financially contribute to them). Nobody actually reads the summaries unless they’re watching raws, right?

This must’ve been so awkward for those three.

I like where this show is going. This episode was much more amusing than the two before it, while maintaining progress in character development and melodrama. Chiaki continues to demonstrate his ability to spot peoples’ hidden talents beneath their various glaring flaws, and appears to now be in the process of building his own “reject orchestra.” He even seemed to <gasp> miss Nodame’s presence for a bit.

So, yeah, <3 this show.
