    You got to be kidding me. Houtarou's straw man millionaire like trading netted him a super large catch that was not only important to Mayaka but also crucial a crucial clue in the Juumonji case. And that's why Houtarou's sister scares me. :rotfl

    Seriously, the girls in the manga club that have it out for Mayaka are starting to irritate me :notrust

    Well, Satoshi had no choice but to put his trust in Houtarou's ability. Kind of sad seeing him concede to him.

    So the incident is basically viral marketing for a manga?

    Houtarou's sister can see into the future. It's the only explanation.

    Did Chitanda give herself a concussion or what?

    "You've set off Chitandas Eyes.":rotfl

    OMFG THAT ENDING!!!!:rotfl:rotfl:rotfl


    I think its safe to say now Tomoe has her hands in this somehow.
    No matter how she did it, calling her a Genius is still a massive understatement.
    Wonder what she saw in front of the Noticeboard.
    "I see....."

    So Chitanda and Tomoe have met before?:hmm
    Thats an interesting revelation when Tomoe and Sakitani were both in India.


    And cmon what the fuck Manga Society?
    Bitch WANTED to spill it on Mayaka first then says something about that she didn't want to after she walked into someone accidently spilling it on her?:geg


    Vocaloid Cosplay still fails IMO.:p

    LOL, Chitanda's eyes lost all the light when Orekisaid it's an adult topic :rotfl

    Tomoe is a psychic. Either that or she came back from the future with Mikuru :laugh
    How on Earth did she know Mayaka is looking for that exact manga and that it's related to the case?

    Even K-ON was hit. It must have happened while they were too busy eating cake :laugh

    Kinda ironic considering she wouldn't really have a problem of bathing with Houtarou.:lmao

    Remember that Mayakas copy suddenly disappeared?

    Perhaps it has something to do with the Noticeboard.
    Of course!
    The newspaper article that wrote about it.
    She most likely solved it herself.

    I still don't get it :amuse

    At least this episode made it clear, that Houtarou and Chitanda really are alike. Their thinking might differ but both of them are only obsessed with the thing that currently interest them and pay no attention to their surroundings.

    I'm saying Tomoe is the one who took Mayakas Manga somehow.
    Mayakas is missing and now Tomoe appears outta nowhere with the very Manga missing and thus giving a clue to the current mystery and helping out Mayaka with her club.



    And as in hows its related to the case:
    We already know she has a connection to Irisu.
    I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out she is "Anjou" just how she is "Hongou".

    From her room? That would be interesting :ho

    I think it's just a coincidance that Mayaka wanted to prove her point with the same manga that's actually the key to the mystery

    Mayakas situation of in the Manga Society is portrayed more than well enough.
    Her entire status in the club depends on that sole Manga and now the Mystery Queen No. 1 has given that very manga to the Classics Club along with the key to solve the mystery.

    I can hardly deem that as coincidence when the very same manga disappeared from her room due to unknown reasons and now Tomoe bringing it to the Club having received it per unknown reasons.

    guys quick question here..i may have totally forgot about it before...

    why is the 'student council president' the same as the one who 'drew the poster' was a major discovery for them? i mean the LISTED 'student council president' on the brochure was it a sign of a clue or something about the juumonji thing?

    edit : is an executive committee president the same as a student council president? i guess its different since its exe-committe is tanabe-san right?

    sorry guys i may have miss something huge here...

    "It's on the tip of my tongue!"

    "Well swallow it back." :lmao

    I'm guessing the student council president did it. Or is that too obvious?

    At first I thought Tomoe saw the news article and realized what was going on. But then why did she bring the manga with her in the first place?

    Chitanda's sad face :(

    Good episode. I really wish the episodes were longer though lol

    some out of place speculation lol

    Spoiler:
    Remember that girl (her name's Kaho) from the fortune club in ep13 that knows Chitanda? According to her and Chitanda's little conversation, Kaho has a family member/relative that Chitanda calls "Mr. Juumonji." Hm, and the "thief" is referred to as Juumonji too. I don't think this is a coincidence. Maybe she's connected to this shit going down. Plus, Kaho appears in the OP, so I think there's more to her than what the screentime dictates lol.

    Also I was rewatching the first episode and one of the famous families Satoshi mentions is the "Juumonji clan." Although I think the kanji was different. Is there a difference between Juumonji and Juumoji or is it just a translation thing?

    This mystery is kinda over my head, but with the connection of that manga and the student council president things seems to be falling into place. At least it give place for everyone in the Classics Club to be involved in solving this mystery. I should go back and rewatch some of this stuff.

    Chitanda hitting her head on the mic had me rolling :lmao

    Fukube is gonna need a factory's worth of peanut butter for all that jelly.

    I bet Tomoe is the one who's calling the shots on this. She probably knows the author, the Student Council President (who's probably the thief), and everyone invovled. I bet she's pulling the strings to give Oreki the push he needs to start solving the mystery.

    It's pretty unbelievable how much effect she's had on the anime despite appearing for a combined total of 3 mins over the past 16 episodes.

    Also, Chitanda :datass And I think that her seeing Tomoe and being reminded was because how similar she is to Houtarou.

    Pics of this person? I dunno who you're talking about.

    She looks like a ghost.

    Also here's a promotional pic for the next and presumably final arc. I had a feeling Fukube's jealousy would grow more and more.

    Haha, Houtarou's sister is amazing. She makes me think of one of those mysterious game characters who shows up to impart some much needed information every once in awhile. And I loved seeing them match up the ears on the drawings. I've done that before and there's something wonderful in being able to identify someone based on their style.

    I died at the adult topic thing. Poor Chitanda, both in that and the head bop. xD;

    There it is, more of Satoshi's dark side, this is what I want. Oh and Mider, "a factory's worth of peanut butter" :rotfl

    I love Houtarou's side step of Chitanda, an adult topic :lmao

    Tomoe's either psychic or she can see the future, she knows way too much.
