To get all of the adjectives out of the way early: Beautiful, wonderful, gripping, superb, fantastic - Such are my already well-known feelings towards True Tears, feelings which certainly weren't dimmed by episode eight of the series.
While Ai's devastating sweater-lips combo attack left Shinichirō in shock at the climax of part seven, things soon settle into a state of calm and happiness for the show's protagonist, as he finds himself getting closer and closer to the ever more adorable Noe. On the other hand, Hiromi's obvious malcontent and emotional imbalance worsens further over the course of the episode, where we see yet more of her sharp tongue and manipulation of any given situation to get her own way. This state of affairs soon begins to slowly impinge upon Shinichirō's happiness somewhat, leaving us with an end of episode cliff-hanger with interesting implications for both Noe and Shinichirō.
As I've used up all my praise for this series in the first sentence, there really isn't anything more to be said. I love this show with every fibre of my being, and can only reaffirm my opinion that you won't find a better anime to occupy your time with this season. And you know the best part of all? Against all odds, it just keeps getting better.
