SAKUGA . We've seen her fight before but Mirai is pretty damn strong, Akihito was a surprise as well. She hesitated too much to stab him tough. Quite pleased to see that there are still mysteries about the Hollow Shadow. But what was Sakura's goal?
What an awesome episode.
Mirai and Akihiko are an awesome (soon to be) couple...
The battles were well done and the OST was awesome...
Only Sakura was a bit... weird. She appeared, fought Mirai and suddenly disappeared... :/
Well but they explained why they were at such a strange place.

Damn Hiromi and Akihito are such perverts... Poor Mirai...
Mitsuki and Mirai were so cute together... Totally not unpleasant at all.
Mirai whining on her blog was pure gold though...
Aya has big breasts?! Now THAT was unexpected... But why nude shots... Is that woman a pervert too?
A really nice episode after so much action.
PS: Mitsuki is gorgeous.
Great episode! Episode five really built on the main theme of the series. Teenagers (and people in general) assuming that they are different, that their peers don't understand, and don't like them, without thinking that others feel the same way. Aki, Mitsuki, and Kuriyama have all lived in some form of self-imposed isolation. Now they are starting to find that they understand each other, developing real friendships. Kuriyama seems to be the quickest to understand. I think confronting Aki last week sped up her development compared to the others. Kyoukai has a really nice, universal message, well delivered, without being preachy or didactic. It helps that Kuriyama and Mitsuki are top tier KyoAni heroines. Great show.
Now we know how Sakura was able to fight even though she has no spiritual powers. I wonder what Izumi wanted with Kuriyama after the ED? I'd also like to learn more about how Aki almost killed Hiroomi. The dirty look Fujima gave Aki spoke volumes. He must plan on saying something about Aki to the Association. There are a lot of interesting things going on, as we head towards the second half.
Kuriyama in maid cosplay was, by far, the best part of the episode.
Why they didn't show the "boing" photo? Damn, I was overexcited for no reason. Episode 5th is my favorite episode so far, so many sweet moments without losing its serious touch. Definitely more Akky could makes it better, but maybe this episode is reserved for girls moments.
I'm pretty sure the boing photo would not have met Japanese television standards. Not even late night TV standards.
I missed Aki, but an episode about the girls bonding was really nice. I was glad to see Mitsuki get more screen time.
Although the dialogue may sometimes be dull and some of the events a bit drab, at least someone on staff knows how to keep me watching. Handholding Akihito Hiromi, and multiple hugging times between the two made it fun.
The action moments are really at their best when its just putting up all the barriers and what not while the blood fitting is kind of nothing unique and always feels like a way to just ride the clock. Not really much to say but Id prefer more of an episode like this instead of that which we got previously.
It was nice to see some development in the relationships between the characters.
Hitomi and Akky are perverts indeed......but who wouldn't with those girls around? XD
And the moment in which we came to know that Ai has hidden melons was entertaining.
Anyway it seems that next week we will have a really strange episode with Mirai wearing those clothes, that's why I'm looking forward to watching it. LOL
Came for the passionate and intense Akihito Hiromi shower scenes but then was left with so much more. Episode gave me many of the same feelings UtaPri dance sequences evoked and the song was alright too. Hiromi and Akihito's moves and that final pose, amazing. All around just one plain hilarious and fun episode for everyone involved. Akihito and Hiromi should sport the sleeveless look more often, much better than their traditional outfit. Additionally, they are so similar in the things they are passionate about, that whole outdoors scene was amazing.
Nothing is able to describe this episode better than the look on Mitsukis face. Holy shit I thought NouKome was the best episode this week... I was so wrong... This whole "training-for-the-cultural-festival"-training scenes were so damn hilarious... Especially Hiromi with his mobile phone and the whole training camp stuff...
Long story short: Thank you KyoAni... I think i can die now...
Is this a new song btw? I really want to have a full version... Anyone knows what it is called?
PS: Ai in that outfit...

A great idol anime parody. Best part was that they were so busy preparing their routine, they forgot to plan on how they were going to kill the thingQuote:
Ai achieved the ultimate level of kawaii this week, the final moe form.
OMG, I literally died when they started dancing and having those tragic FB's. XD
I think that all fillers (I don't know if this episode was canon) should be like his, just to give you a good time watching the eisode.
To conclude, that Youma was really a pervert, but I must say that I had his same reaction when I saw Mitsuki and Mirai. LOL
Kyoto Animation's Beyond the Boundary Gets Web Anime Shorts
More Idol stuff? Count me inQuote:
Kuriyama's growth since fighting the Dream Shadow has been amazing. She's so much more confident, so much more open with Mitsuki, Hiroomi, and Aki. I'm not sure where I put Kyoukai yet in the KyoAni canon, but it's definitely one of my favorites. I can't wait for episode seven, and the confrontation with Sakura.
"How unpleasantly obscene!" - My line of the week...
I love the usual skits with Hiromi and Akihito... Their pervy talk about little sisters and glasses is just epic. They really get along quite well, don't they?
The fight between Mirai and Sakura was quite good too although Mirai was clearly the way stronger one. In the end she got at least Sakura back.
Furthermore we found out that the fishy guy from earlier is really fishy after all. At least the cool weapon is still around. If they feet it the Hollow Shadow...
At the end they finally said the name of the show... Which means this is pretty serious.
PS: Mitsuki destroying every idol-CD of Hiromi was pure gold...

I'm curious with the real intention of that glasses man.. well, he has been very suspicious from the start, but so far the clue about what's his purpose hanging around our protags are probably not exist. Looking forward to more serious stuff next episode, should be thrilling.
