I'm not talking about her influence on him.

She's the one who trims his hair.

But I do agree with you that she's underutilized as a character. If there's any girl who gets even less attention, it's Miku.

I mean, we know Zero Two's deal (wants to be normal), we know Ichigo's deal (heartache for Hiro), we know Ikuno's deal (gay for Ichigo), we know Kokoro's deal (doesn't like being put on a pedestal), but we know nothing about Miku.

But a properly written tsundere has a reason why she acts like she does.

Yeah, I was just joking lol.
I also hope there is more story to her.

Now that you mention it... thats pretty much true, yeah. I think there was something somewhat interesting about her in the second half of the beach episode, but I dont remember the details... other than that I dont think theres anything on her motivations

Episode's out. Surprisingly somber compared to what the preview hinted at.

Third nudity scene in the series, and outdoors too. Surprised the boys didn't peek.

Mitsuru really got his shit together. I'm shocked to say this, but Mitsuru/Kokoro might actually work out for me!

Just watched the behind the scenes.
It was really neat.
It's great to see the actors enjoy their work so much.

Only thing I've seen of 16 is the opening.
I like it. The song is still great too.

I'm realizing though how bummed out I am that the love thing was resolved so easily. It really ended up being the type of story (at least this aspect of it) that teaches nothing/very little. Have a positive attitude is the message I guess. Which is fine, but there was potential to do so much more.
I hope the show still explores this stuff with more depth.

Just watched Ep 16, and I dont even know where to start.
The episode itself was really cute (even if it got way too real for a moment with Futoshi) and might be one of my favorites so far (which I have pretty much said about every episode so far...), but the thing that impressed me the most were the new Opening visuals and Ending. New Villain teaser, amazing art, and some things that you can probably be reading into way too much, which gets me both hyped for and a bit afraid of the end.

Plus, I really like Mitsurus new haircut

Or not reading enough into - there's a palpable sense of foreboding.

Yes; and also it makes him look less of a prig (which is probably the idea).

I am mostly talking about Zero Two shattering on multiple occasions... that paired with the tale of the demon princess gives off a few very bad implications regarding the end of the series

The new opening looks very nice, I think the first one is better, but this one is very good too. I'd say that the opening is the best part of the show, both the visuals and the song are amazing. The episode itself was pretty much okay.

Preview of next episode is out.
