|Title:||Ai Yori Aoshi ~Enishi~|
|Episode:||1: Cherry Blossom Spring (Oushun)|
|Chika-rin 'interrogates' every inhabitant of the mansion about their feelings towards Kaoru-oniisan, causing embarrassing situations throughout the whole episode.|

Making every character aware of their feelings towards Kaoru may be a good start for the sequel, but that alone seems a little disappointing as a total content for 20 minutes.
Some ecchi elements provide the usual fan service, and lots of characters' faces turn red because of embarassment... sigh.
The stronger scenes of this episode to me seem to lie in the moods (created by pictures as well as by music) rather than in the story development - there were enough nice silent moments (like the one right at the start) as well as some great laughs. And I especially like the way Miyabi dealt with Aoi's insecurity (creating another opportunity)...
