  • A very funny episode!

    This was such a hilarious episode! In the first part Harima spills his heart to his cousin Itoko about his feelings towards Tenma, not even knowing Tenma was right behind him. Tenma is so oblivious, that she didn't even recognize her own part in his story. I feel sorry for Harima now, though. In the second part Hanai had to prove himself to join the same club as Yakumo, and in the end he is accepted. In the last part the klass is playing softball, but Tenma is horrible at sports. Karasuma gives her a meaningful speech, (which turns out that Tenma's friend told him to motivate her) and after doing an awesome pose Tenma throws a fast ball right into Harima's face. So it was a very superb episode.moreless
  • Awesome!

    Yay, we got the story on how Harima began to like Tenma. What a cute, nice and still funny and wrong story. Well, it certainly changed my view on things. Oh, maybe we'll finally see some love between Tenma's sister and that Student Council President. At least I hope so, because even though he's obsessed with her. However, he didn't get accepted in the end anyway. How sad. Really, I'm honest!

    Besides, the baseball game was fun. Harima is really good. Actually, he's too good. Moreover, the same could be said about Tenma, when she just gets the confidence. Seriously, she used Harima's trick on himself. Furthermore, the direction the ball took just made me think: "Magic bullet, anyone? "moreless
