After an opening quartet of episodes that left me equally fascinated (by the plot) and frustrated (by the characters), not to mention the fact that I had a pretty good idea of the series conclusion heading in, I was curious to see how this series would continue to play out. These four episodes did little to change my mind on the series, as the build continues to be great while I continue to hate virtually everybody involved with it. The only variable in it is how much I dislike a particular character at any point in time.
When episode 5 opens up, Makoto is already beginning to be torn between Sekai and Kotonoha. Kotonoha is his official girlfriend, but her shyness causes her to back off of any of his advances, while Sekai is just their good friend who just happens to be fooling around with Makoto on the side because, you know, he needs the practice. Aside from wondering where she was when I was sixteen and needing practice the whole concept fascinates me.
