As a Setsuna fan I am not sure spoiler[if I should be happy or terrified by that ending. Was that a kiss of triumph or a kiss of death?] Also I wonder why they skipped the original song.

Hmm, I'm not sure about the second part as I don't think the series will have any tragedy. So, I'll assume triumph here.

This ep is nice, i love Sound of Destiny. I wonder why they didn't show the final Song.

The ep's title is "The last and Greatest Day"
It looks like this maybe going to route of tragedy. I hope not.

i guess next ep is Touma turn to confess her feeling.

A very warm episode, it's a pleasure to simply watch three very young people chasing after their dream and earning their success.

It maybe because we've been hearing it all the time in the OP theme, but yeah, I'd like to hear Setsuna version. Glad that I have all the three songs, pretty catching and ear-candy themes. I doubt it will have tragedy in its latter half, but some heart-breaking scenes.

Btw, who do you guys vote for Miss Houjou? UTW holds a poll and Kazusa's winning (damn!).

well, from various comments on MAL and Tvtropes from folks who have played the game, we can expect an emotional roller coaster on the level as Rumbling Hearts.

keep in mind that this only the introductory chapter, of prologue of sorts, and there is still the rest of the game once this part is over. I'm hoping this sells well so we get the rest after the introductory chapter

I thought Rumbling Hearts was pretty decent but given the way the TV series will be handled, I doubt it will go into that format yet since it went into it quite early on. I don't play the White Album 2 VN anyways so I'll be enjoying the series weekly with surprisingly new elements like I did this week.

wow, that went a lot better than I thought it would. However, Haruki's reaction to spoiler[Kazua's hypothetical future boyfriend and Setsuna seeing that] doesn't bode well

This show is becoming redolent with the whiff of approaching tragedy. My heart was in my mouth during that spoiler[car ride as I was convinced there was going to be a crash and one of them seriously hurt.]

Since Haruki and Setsuna are already in a relationship, logic dictates it's Setsuna who becomes incapacitated in some way, allowing Haruki and Touma to explore their feelings for each other. Very Rumbling Hearts, indeed.

Hey, did we ever find out if Setsuna won the Miss Highschool Idol contest?

I'm pretty sure it's going to be a lot simpler. I like the fact that the show is so focused. A lot of shows go for giant casts with broad, all-encompassing plots that step on each other. The simplicity of "yeah, it's a love triangle. Period" really works for me.

I think this is getting too heavy for me. It can't end well.

@Blood-
Let me know how it turns out.

Wow, that kiss....

Poor Touma. Deep down, I bet she really wants to be with Haruki or at least wanted to go to that party. A friend of mine came up with a theory that Setsuna wanted Touma to go to her party to not only unite together as friends for celebration but also to confirm together if she really does love Haruki.
