Tetsuya and Takumi explain to Atsushi that too much chocolate is bad for you. In order to prevent getting sick from all the chocolate, they agreed on sharing all of their candy. Sayo andAtsumi shop for ingredients to make chocolates themselves, but Atsumi is disappointed to find out she is cooking her own gift from Sayo. In the end, Atsushi's popularity with his female classmates get him a bag-full of sweets only to arrive home and be limited to how much to eat. He also gets a surprise from Hina-chan.

Unlike past episodes, I found this one quite funny. I mentioned before that three minutes is not enough to satisfy me with comedy. Yet, this episode had enough gags that made me chuckle, and it didn't seem to try to overcompensate. I especially liked Atsumi and Atsushi's reaction when they find the outcome of Hina trying to make her own chocolate.

Verdict

Six episodes in and there is a clear character development. I like that the jokes in this episode didn't limit themselves to the Miyagawa siblings' height. I enjoyed this episode a lot, but I won't cease to think the episodes should be longer.

That chocolate looks like someone defecated on a plate.

I thought it was funny how he didn't get arrested for once.

@sickVisionz: Yes!

@DocHaus: I'm glad they didn't do that. Too much of something good can be bad.
