    Re: Love Lab

    Have to say this was one of the best shows of this season I've watched so far. The two main characters are perfectly complementing each other. The fact that Riko is also a total love rookie, which is unknown to Maki, makes it even more funny. Even though they are so different characters, I can see a good camaraderie forming up between the two.

    Episode 1:

    Hilarious. Two young girls practising how to get a boyfriend... The student council president is already incredibly funny... Together with Riko they are an outstanding comedy duo.

    Can't wait to see what the rest of the student council is like...

    Re: Love Lab

    Love Lab had not been on my list, I dl'ed the first episode on a whim. What a pleasant surprise! The first episode was really funny, the characters were memorable, the animation, and direction, were excellent. The writing was crisp, the jokes funny, and well timed. The acting was also very good. Riko was my favorite character, so far. She and Maki make a good comedic team.

    Re: Love Lab

    riko and maki are sooooo kawaii

    god i loved the comedy in this show, i guess logic would dictate that a middle aged man shoukd feel shame or guilt when finding a romantic comedy about the relationship between 8th grade girls cute and amusing

    but i dont care; this could be the sleeper show if the season, i had almost given up hope that we would have an epic comedy in this summer anime season

    im now looking forward to love lab!!

    Re: Love Lab

    After reading some good comments here I decided to give it a try and it really was incredibly funny. Maki's expressions and delusions just made it for me and Riko's reactions were like the cherry on the cake

    Too much epic shots:

    i have to thank this forum because there have beena few series that i probably wouldnt have tried without reading you guys coments

    i thought the "practicing running intp eachother in the hallway" scene was awesome

    ---------- Post added July 12, 2013 at 11:24 AM ---------- Previous post was July 08, 2013 at 01:29 AM ----------

    sayo and yuiko are awesome

    lol at sayo continually calling yuiko a voyuer (or pervert)
    and i laughed even harder at suzu trying to lie to sayo about what the body pillow is
    makis attachment to that pillow is hilarious

    the way she dove after huggy to protect him was classic

    sayo told yuiko she declared wae on them
    oh this is going to be good

    my favorite part is riko smacking maki with that fan/paddle thing

    Re: Love Lab

    I was a bit afraid whether second episode would be as good as the first, since it set such a high standard, but this wasn't one bit secondary to the first one. Huggy's background story, former president's villainous laughing, the "hentai" spam, Riko getting destroyed by the words of trust and honesty put forward.. Totally epic!

    Probably going to be one of the best moments of the season when it's all said and done.

    Maki is the greatest. "Could you teach me the way of the klutz".

    Re: Love Lab

    Rikos different hairstyles sure are awesome.

    I agree with Kisame here. The scene with the fan was outstanding...

    This show is way too funny...

    ---------- Post added July 19, 2013 at 03:42 PM ---------- Previous post was July 14, 2013 at 05:54 PM ----------

    Episode 3:

    This show is way too awesome... The "I wanna do it now!"-part almost killed me...
    If I live the drama aside which was pretty clichée, i can still say that this episode was perfect. Everyone of the characters is so adorable and funny...
    Maki spitting blood because of the stuff Eno said was in a league of it's own too... I hope we will see the reason for that...

    Re: Love Lab

    "Your dad is a lingerie. Your brother is a leech."
    Mizushima and Riko teaming up for the cover in the closing moments was epic. And I get the feeling they just started to get more requests on the matter with that

    Best scene: Eno copying all stuff Maki has noted down as love research instantly

    Re: Love Lab

    oh god i love eno

    she is such a crybaby and a brat

    riko was awesome when eno demanded she step down as assistant spicking her tongue out and pulling her eyelid down

    i love how suzu always calls riko "wine"

    best moment of this episode goes to maki crawling around and hiding behind trees at the beginning

    something is seriously wrong with that girl

    ---------- Post added July 21, 2013 at 05:32 PM ---------- Previous post was July 19, 2013 at 06:33 PM ----------

    i take back that best moment post

    the best moment was maki and eno insulting eachother from the roof to the ground and coughing up blood every time their was a "fatal" insult

    lol at the funniest anime ive seen in a while

    ---------- Post added July 27, 2013 at 03:37 AM ---------- Previous post was July 21, 2013 at 05:32 PM ----------

    poor riko is caught in a lie that she didnt even really make up and sayo is the only one who is smart enough to see through it

    lol at makis benefits for having long hair

    and the dropping the oranges down hill and puppy/ice cream scenario would have been epic to watch

    eno was trying to hide that she is the mystery request box girl

    the whole lingerie song was to die for

    i literally fell out of my chair

    Re: Love Lab

    Eno didn't make the request. The request was made by a brown haired girl.

    Episode itself was again very funny. Almost everything Suzu does and says is beyond stupidity...
    And yes that lingery song was out of this world... Suzu had the overkill punchline though... "You're great even as a bra!"
