Man, I love this show in spite of it's premise. Like I really REALLY hate circuses. Clowns. Puppets. It's just a big collection of things that have always creeped me out. So when it starts to make the case of how great circuses are...:-_-

No matter how passionately it makes that appeal I can't relate to that at all.

More interesting for me is which harem Vilma is going to be a candidate for. Narumi is the obvious one but it wouldn't shock me if she was a closet shotacon with a brother complex and starts setting her sights on Masaru.

Also was it ever stated why they are working odd jobs to pay for the circus when Masaru is ultra rich? Is it like an sense of accomplishment thing? Can he not access his money? Or has he just not realized he could pay for everything a million times over?

Good episode once again.

As I suspected Shirogane too had the vitality

Seems to me Vilma is attracted towards Shirogane.

Watched two episodes in a row. I always found that Zonapha disease plot disturbing but this...

Shirogane is still awesome. Is she getting a harem? :amuse

She had that Aqua Vitae since the beginning? I never noticed.

They postponed it for no reason.:-_-

Have to admit I was pretty annoyed by this episode. The writing was just bad. I mean, you can see the attempts at emotional manipulation a mile away. The whole Narumi running off without saying anything thing was stupid. The way it jumped into that flashback and had it use all the same characters for it. It really rubbed me the wrong way.

You will understand why Francine looks exactly like Shirogane later.

Just an info Francine was chaste,she didn't lose her virtue to the younger brother but her morality couldn't let her leave with the elder brother after spending so much time with another man.

Narumi and Shirogane are basically like the reincarnations of Yin and Francine.

Sadly.. I did not.

This is probably going to sound harsh, and I'm sorry for that, but I thought this was utter garbage. Not quite enough to make me drop the series but close. Very close.

To be clear, what I have a problem with isn't the story itself but how the story of Jin and Francine connect to Narumi and Shirogane. Not only did I think that was unnecessary making that a legacy or destiny story diminishes the personal connection between Narumi and Shirogane. Which was based on their own personalities and interactions with each other. I see that as diminishing the impact of the character dynamics for the sake of propping up a flashback and that annoys me. A lot.:-_-

So is anybody still watching this?

It's so weird how much enthusiasm this show started with and now it's a ghost town in here. I haven't even heard anybody mention this show for over a month.

I am watching this..... officially. I’m just behind right now... by about 4 or 5 episodes. I really liked it at first, but now that I would need to binge for a few hours to catch up, the urge isn’t as demanding. I’ll still watch it... some day.
