Re: Episode 5
I love how Natsume's sickness resulted in a chorus of "stay away from me" from her friends. Then Yuzan returns and Haru gets all angry again. Apparently Yuzan is supposed to bring Haru back home, but he doesn't actually want to. So really, his goals are the same as those of the other characters, and he effectively does nothing for the plot at this point, other than indirectly causing Haru to finally tell Shizuku about his past. Also, it makes Shizuku think about how much the current life she enjoys revolves around Haru's presence, and she again acts very open yet embarrassed about her feelings toward him. Really beautiful character work. However, she's getting some competition from Hanazawa girl. Oh by the way, she's also the class rep. Yep, confirmed for Anri.
