Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai Episode 4: When time loops go wrong

I was a bit apprehensive with the new arc starting in this episode, but I was pretty happy with how it turned out. It felt like this episode was toying with my emotions, especially since it teased its Endless Eight scenario heavily from the start. It also seemed like an insane number of things happened in this episode. Also, the focus of this arc, Laplace's Demon, is an interesting thought experiment, even if the premise is very loosely related to what's actually happening in the arc.

Am I the only one who suspected a time loop right after seeing the strange focus on the big game?

These two are still so good together. I really liked the idea that Mai might have kissed Sakuta when he couldn't see her.

Woohoo science? To be fair, I think the idea of determinism is fascinating, so Laplace's Demon actually plays well into that. I think that time travel makes a lot more sense if the world is deterministic, even if the idea is a bit scary. This episode certainly has an interesting interpretation of the idea, replacing the idea of a time loop with a person basically simulating possible futures to avoid a confession.

You know, Tomoe's reasoning for avoiding the confession actually isn't that bad. Her fear of isolation actually makes sense, and it's easy to understand how cornered she feels.

Ouch, you really shouldn't have said that, Sakuta. To be honest, I was sad to see the loop end with Mai misunderstanding the situation. I think that Mai and Sakuta really deserve each other, and this rift wasn't cool.

This man deserves a golf clap.

My hopes are really getting up after seeing this scene. Are Mai and Sakuta actually going to have a reasonable conversation to avoid dragging out the drama? I'd respect this series a lot if that's where this goes.
