Bomaye I might just love ya Shiny/thrilled

NOOOOOO BUT SERIOUSLY THE DRESSES YA'LL!!! Okay, so does anyone who does costuming know the name of those wing-like pieces of cloth that the women are wearing attached at their upper arms and wrists? The effect is soooooo pretty and I kind of just want to drape silk all over myself and swish around in circles in my room.

Spoiler:
I think he... fell? But I'm not really positive about that. The way Gorilla (also I am loving all the different body types in this anime, really works to make it super visually interesting)
said "I might win this year after all" was super sketchy, but prior to that I wasn't really getting any anime villain feels from him, and this is basically a shounen sports manga, villains are supposed to project themselves from a mile away lol. Besides, didn't the fall happen after the totally not gay encounter in the bathroom stall, in which Hyoudou was already bandaging himself? It could be he was previously weakened and then slipped. Buuuuuuuut... This is anime, so the simplest explanation is never the right one, so you know what, I'm gonna go with pushed lol

REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING THE OTHER CHARACTERS TEASED IN THE OPENING PLEASE MORE PRETTY DRESS TIME PLEASE

Spoiler:

The flashback did show Hyodou at the bottom of the stairs with him standing above it. So they're trying to imply that he pushed him down them or something. But I think with Hyodou have knee problems, he probably just fell on his own, King Kong saw it happen and thinks "Well shit, we might win this one, but for the wrong reason."

Also I know nothing about costumes and dresses :nod:

Fucking called it lol, he's Gouda's long lost twin and ain't nobody allowed to say otherwise. Also, Iwakuma is such a perfect name for him, he's just like a giant stone bear (with a heart of gold!)

Okay ya'll it's official, Obaa-chan is totally Werel when she's a granny--ain't gonna let little things like blindness or old age stop her from perving on those adorable chubby boys she loves so much!
Also her trying to fatten up Hyoudou was just too cute  Feeling loved

Spoiler:

I fucking love that this show is genre savvy enough to make the mysterious, brooding, troubled young genius character also a total derp. It's certainly not a parody of a shounen competition anime, that's for sure, but it recognizes its absurdity enough to play around with the edges of the tropes its been given, which is fun

I gotta say though, I really didn't love this episode nearly as much as the past three--I think it was in the sheer amount of still frames used. Look, I get it, animating those dancing scenes so fluidly is expensive and time consuming as shit, and it makes sense that you'd dump your budget into the first few episodes in order to get people watching and hooked. But damn, I wanna see people dancing if they're supposed to be dancing, not Random Bitch on the Sidelines and Dude with School Shooter Haircut talking about how people are dancing without even showing us anything! Oh well, here's hoping more comes next episode

Take it all back, Ballroom e Yokouso has still got it--damn this was some gorgeous animation! The sunset, the movement, the way the light would shine off her hair and eyes as they moved--really great stuff.
Spoiler:
And you know what, I am totally shipping your waifu (who's my Hair Waifu, because damn I've been trying to rock that shoulder length blond bob plus bangs and a cute little side braid and hair clip since I was like 14, and still can't pull it off!) with Tatara now--they just seem so earnest and sincere and perfect for each other, like as a couple they'd watch old performance videos together and cry because the dancing is just so beautiful

That all being said lol, I kinda don't blame Loudmouth
Spoiler:
for ditching Mako--I mean damn, isn't it weird to be dancing hyper-sexually with your sister after all? You're a young and randy young man, go swivel your hips with someone you can actually stick your dick in

Finally, Mako gurl, I totes don't blame you for the
Spoiler:
whole no-bra thing. For me it was less an act of radical feminism and more increased depression (hey, if I have one less item of clothing that I have to wash, I can do even less to take care of myself!) but put on enough layers and no one will be able to tell, promise! Never need to wear one again

Episode 6

Spoiler:

- Dat headbutt staredown
- And of course, Gaju is a gigantic fucking NERD who's had a crush on Shizuku forever
- Tatara's dad fucking talking to Mako on the phone rofl
- God DAMMIT, Tatara and Mako are adorable (and Mako is mega-waifu level adorable), I'm not sure why we're supposed to want Mako to go back with Gaju, that ship should be sailing so hard
- Tatara's not dancing alone anymore in the outro silent
