The episode began with the four members of the ESP Research Club going to karaoke. Afterwards Yuriko urged Haruka to confess her feelings to Yoshihisa. Haruka followed an earlier suggestion from Yuriko, and she decided to cook lunch for Yoshihisa. However, things went sour when Hiyori sent members of her father's doujou to rough up Yoshihisa. When Haruka arrived to the hospital she concluded that no matter how she tries, she will always hurt the people around her. She decides to go away.
Episode 3 of Kotoura-san was kind of uneven. The first half of the episode was very silly, and the second half took a dramatic twist. More than sad, to me the ending was frustrating because Haruka's decision was too radical. I continue to enjoy the relationship between Haruka and Yoshihisa. I am also very intrigued by Yuriko apparent hidden agenda. Hoping that this series continues to be good, I give this uneven episode a 8 out of 10.
