episode 1
So… the art is really pretty. I like the colours and style. As for the content, I’m going to give it a few more episodes to see how I really feel about it. It’s got a bit of a comedic take on things but his rationale is sound so I’m not really comfortable with how much they’re poking fun at it. I guess we need to see how it goes. The important thing is communication, as he points out—“I thought we could have a discussion about it.” Trying to keep everything equitable between partners is admirable but we’ll see how that lasts. Also the question of whether the two girls end up dating is another thing that’s up in the air right now. So many things to address. I wonder how well they’re going to cover them.

episode 2
So much strife. I will say that, Saki in particular, is entirely too worried about what others will think of her. If she knows how he feels then the opinions of others don’t matter. They need to talk out their jealousy a bit better too. Just saying. Also, you can’t just force someone to not disclose another relationship. Whether they decide to be out about being poly is on them.

episode 3
Oh wow. They went through a ton to find a place to eat. They should just get over what people think already. Plus them calling it two-timing is really irksome to me. But I’m still not sure how I feel about the way they’re handling it. Like people don’t talk about what’s bothering them before taking drastic actions that could ruin the relationship. That’s troublesome.

episode 4
They started off calling it two timing again. I guess that’s just a cultural thing and it’s annoying AF. I really don’t like it. Moving on, they talked things out!! That makes me happy. The fact that they view each other as rivals, doesn’t. They didn’t talk about everything. Like the root of the issue. She kind of did but not really. I mean they talked at it. It was really good for high schoolers, it was phenomenal. The MeTuber was bound to show up once she was introduced on their phones. But wow on her moving so quickly. Like as soon as the window wasn’t locked, it was over. And then he made his grand gesture and I was like oh it’s over now. And yup, she said it.

episode 5
He said no! And explained many times that it’s about feelings, etc. this episode made me happy. I mean people can do their own nonmonogamy but I like the focus on quality relationships that’s happening here.

episode 6
I just… I would find this show much cuter if they weren’t constantly calling him scum for dating two people. And they do bring up issues of envy, insecurity, etc so that’s good but I think the overall tone is too judgmental.

episode 7
Oh wow. Saki’s mom reminds me of my mom lol. So helpful. But wow, the maid versus bunny girl eh? Meanwhile Milika is falling deeper and deeper. Fascinating. I’m pretty sure that the three of them are now lying and keeping secrets from each other now though which is an issue?

So much for that. At least Saki and Nagisa got some attention from Naoya to deal with their insecurities? I don’t even know anymore… this entire show is ridiculous. I feel like he’s the only sincere one out of the bunch. And maybe Milika believe it or not? I don’t know…

episode 9
Milika really went through some things in this episode… like what the what? Naoya is being respectful of the boundaries of his relationship and I’m with that. Her demands are unreasonable. I’m glad that the three in the relationship are going to work on their bonds instead of focusing on outside factors though. That’s critical.
