Watch the OP! Mirror 1 (10.5MB, XviD)
With final exams coming up, Sia is worried about her studies, so Rin decides to help out. Although the pair isn’t able to initially get much studying done, they do get pretty close to each other as they’re looking something up together in the dictionary. Sia enjoys her time with him and remembers when they first met eight years ago. Back then, the two of them had played together and had taken refuge together under a broken umbrella when it started to rain. A very similar sequence of events unfolds after their exams when Rin walks her home under his umbrella. Sometime later, Sia invites Rin out on a date, and the two end up spending their time having fun around town. It is on that date that Rin takes the time to play with a lost child, and Sia realizes this is the Rin she likes. Rin doesn’t wanted to end their time together, so the two then go to school and admire the nighttime view from their classroom as they hold hands. After Sia and Rin’s experience at the beach together, her father starts the rumors that the couple was getting married. However, when Sia overhears Nerine confessing her feelings to Rin, she’s torn over what to do. On that same night, she brings Rin to school and says that she wants everyone to feel that she’s worthy of him when they get married. For now, she’s going love him more and more, and she hopes he chooses her out of all the girls.

The OP for Sia was really interesting to me because it showed a few things I don’t recognize or remember, like Sia’s birth and this. The ED, on the other hand, tells a mini-story of Sia going to look for Rin and eventually finding him back at her house studying with everyone.
Well this is the Sia episode with material from episodes 03, 08, 09, and 10. There’s actually there’s no mention of her other side yet – not even when they showed this part from episode 10. Like with the other episodes we’ve seen so far, I assume they’re keeping that until the second half. Next episode is definitely Primula, and then it’ll be interesting to see how they structure the second half of MEMORIES.
