Fortune Arterial TV Anime EP03 The One Thousand Year Spring

This post has 1,287 views

I said last week that this episode we would be entering some major story development this week and my guess is partially correct.  With the third episode we are finally getting more details and characters development for the main cast.  I am once again very happy to see all the major scenes from the game being faithfully reproduced in the animated version.  There were some very slight adjustments in the group outing and near the end of the episode in the student council room but it only served to reinforce the the story even better.  Once again, without spoiling the story for anyone, as I hope to offer my unique prospective of this show since I am already familiar with the original Fortune Arterial story, allow me to share some of the screen shots taken during the Crunchyroll simulcast~

This particular scene is also a major plot device that is suppose to give you a hint related to Kiriha~

This scene was never quite illustrated in game, and I am glad to see this being animated!

And Iori spelled out his intention clear from the onset, just like the way it was in game as well.  Now he must choose between acknowledging their secret identity or face to have his memory erased.

The fact that she had to erase Kohei’s memory brought tears to the normally cheerful Erika T.T;

Erika has a big big heart, full of emotion, it just wrench my heart to see her cry.

Thankfully, Kohei reversed his decision (otherwise I would have to punch him to submission myself!)
