Haruka is back and returned to her old school. Hiyori also decided to join the ESP Research Club. She genuinely seems to want to be near Haruka, but Yoshihisa is also there. Yuriko decided for the club to have a party at Haruka's place, which they did. On the school's sports day Haruka was assigned to participate in a relay competition. She felt very unmotivated but cheered up with the support of her club mates and club mates. Sadly this caused Haruka to become to over exited and fall down.
Episode 5 of Kotoura-san was entertaining enough. There is not much to analyze because the actions and motivations of the characters seemed pretty clear and straight forward. The series seems to have fund its vibe, and this episode is proof of that. The tragic stuff seems to have been put on old, but I expect it to return soon. This episode gets a 8 out of 10.
