At home by herself, Noe talks to the photo of her grandmother and says that she found a very important person who can help her with her tears. When Jun returns home moments later, Noe tells him about how Shinichirou said that he liked her and asked her out. Happy for her, Jun hugs his sister. Meanwhile, at the Nakagami house, Shinichirou struggles to draw more of his picture book and instead thinks about what’s happened recently between him and all three girls. In Aiko’s case, after she had kissed him, Shinichirou had told her that he couldn’t look at her in that way because he thinks of her as a childhood friend and as Nobuse’s girlfriend. Aiko had been quiet as Shinichirou hurried out of the store, and it’s not until later that night as she’s remembering all this that she really starts to cry about it. After class the next day, Nobuse invites Shinichirou to Aiko’s store, but Shinichirou claims that he has a date with Noe. He finds Noe out in the chicken pen holding Jibeta in her arms, and when he asks her what she’s doing, she explains that Jibeta seemed to be cold. Unbeknownst to the two, Hiromi sees them chatting happily together, and she refutes the idea put forth by her friend Tomoyo that Shinichirou had feelings for her.

After leaving school, Shinichirou and Noe head to the waterfront, and Noe takes a moment to enjoy the ocean breeze. She soon notices that Shinichirou doesn’t look very cheerful, so she has him squat down. To Shinichirou’s surprise, Noe hugs him and explains that he also seemed to be cold. When she then asks him what he sees behind her, Shinichirou observes the sky, and Noe reveals that she wants him to be always looking at that. Shinichirou realizes that he’s never seen the sky in this way, and the sight of it causes him to begin reciting the lines from his picture book. Excited to hear the story of Raigomaru, Noe wants Shinichirou to hurry up with writing the rest of it, so Shinichirou gets to work when he returns home. After he reads her more of it the following day, Noe expresses how happy she is that he’s brought Raigomaru back in his picture book. She feels that both he and Raigomaru will be able to flap their wings eventually, and she even goes as far as to suggest that this will become his wings. Noe then kisses him on the cheek and admits that she’s quickly falling in love with him. As the two continue to get closer, Hiromi sees them together more and more, and it gets to the point where she dreams that she sees them about to kiss. She wakes up from that dream thinking about her younger self crying and not wanting to be left behind.

The next morning, when Hiromi runs into a very cheerful Shinichirou, she briefly comments on how well he’s getting along with Noe. She then speaks with Shinichirou’s father who urges her to talk to him if anything happens because he considers her a child in his family. He also notes that Hiromi’s movements resemble her mother’s a lot, and once she’s out of earshot of him, Shinichirou’s mother tells Hiromi the same thing, except that she treats it in a negative way because she sees Hiromi so easily winning guys’ hearts. Hiromi is actually going out with Jun today, and when they meet, he observes how it’s always snowing when he sees her. She says that she wants to go to a city where it doesn’t snow, and the one place Jun can think of is the one that embodies the only thing the two of them have in common. That thing is basketball, and the place turns out to be the school gymnasium where Jun proposes a free throw game. The stakes are that each basket made means that the other person has to answer a question honestly. Jun is willing to let Hiromi shoot from the free throw line while he shoots from three-point range, but she insists that he shoot from half court.

Hiromi ends up getting two baskets to Jun’s none, and for her first question, she asks him about the number of boys that Noe has gone out with. His answer is zero, and he suggests that she’s got the wrong idea about Noe because of the various rumors. Hiromi thinks that this means Noe is a strong girl, but Jun reveals that Noe used to cry all the time. It was only after a certain event – their grandmother’s death – that she stopped crying and became a strong girl. Hearing Jun talk about all this causes Hiromi to call him a siscon (sister complex), and for her second question, she asks him why he’s going out with her. After Jun admits that it was because of the deal with Shinichirou, Hiromi wonders if this means that if either side breaks up, then the other side will break up too. Jun finds that idea troublesome and suggests that he’ll do whatever Hiromi wants. As the two are leaving the school building, they happen to run into Shinichirou and Noe who had just arrived. Noe is here to see Jibeta, so Hiromi joins her at the chicken coop while the boys sit together off on the side. The smiling Noe reveals that she thinks a little better of Hiromi now and explains that Hiromi was the first person to fight with her. Hiromi, however, coldly comments on how Noe’s cute smile and innocent face so easily won over Shinichirou’s feelings. When she realizes what she just said, Hiromi decides to go home.

Jun follows Hiromi and hears her admit that the words that inadvertently came out of her mouth were her true feelings. When Hiromi says that she doesn’t want to feel that way, Jun comments on how easily life would be if they could control their feelings as ideally as they’d like. All of this reminds Hiromi of how Shinichirou’s mother had treated her the same way she had just treated Noe. At home, Hiromi finds some burnt scraps outside in the snow and identifies one as part of a picture with her parents in it. She confronts Shinichirou’s mother about it, and though she claims that she doesn’t blame Shinichirou’s mother because she’d probably have done the same thing in that position, Hiromi still gets angry because it was her own mother. Hiromi feels that it was a mistake for her to come here and, before running out of the house, she apologizes for everything up to now. The only place she can think of to go is the Isurugi house, and she uses how Jun had said that he’d do whatever she wanted in order to get him to take her somewhere where it doesn’t snow on his motorcycle despite of the hazardous snowy road conditions. The two happen to ride pass Shinichirou and Noe on the road, and Hiromi and Shinichirou recognize each other as their eyes meet for a split second.


They present here the idea that Hiromi is like Shinichirou’s mother, and it makes me wonder if those parallels have any other implications. Maybe Hiromi will learn from Shinichirou’s mothers’ mistakes and decide to give up on Shinichirou in the end if she sees him falling more and more in love with Noe. That’s assuming that Shinichirou is going to end up with Noe – something that I’m much more willing to believe after seeing this episode where a large part of it was focused on showing the pair growing closer. Still, there’s always the possibility that they’ll come back to the sister thing and reveal that its not true, and that could make things really interesting if Shinichirou and Hiromi still have feelings for each other.

On the other hand, I think it’s pretty safe to say that Aiko has no chance anymore after Shinichirou (predictably) told her that he couldn’t see her that way. Barring any surprises, I think Nobuse’s the only person who can give her a happy ending here. Speaking of which, the biggest shocking moment this week didn’t occur in the episode but rather in the preview for next week where it appears that Hiromi is taking her clothes off. The only hint of who she’s doing it in front of is what appears to be a red colored sleeve, and that would point to Jun. I get the feeling that it’s a red herring though, and that the shot of the police car with flashing lights might be more important. Perhaps there will be a motorcycle accident?


  1. no manches, se ve que va para bueno, y ya porfavor dejen de sufrir por los personajes en realidad a veces llega a pasar eso, sigan lo viendo como algo que puede pasar alguna vez en la vida, no se traumen porfavor

  2. Also if any of you take a look, in the first preview picture, Hiromi is putting on dress shirt which isn’t her style, its Jun’s. I’m guessing he just is letting her have another shirt to wear. Thats all really.

  3. That is a misleading preview, if you look at the shirt it doesn’t have the seam where the sleeve meets the shoulder, I think that might be Shin’s mother there. I think Hiromi and Jun were stopped by the police and she was returned home.

    Poor Aiko, complete rejection. It has sealed that Aiko will dump Nobuse, for one Shin told her that Nobuse was one of the reasons he could go out with her. VERY SMART! Now everytime Aiko sees Nobuse she will reminded that he is the cause she can’t be with Shin.

  4. @MEE: I think in the first picture Hiromi is having a bad dream as well there is no snow, & while they are outside it is the winter, so they should have their jackets on. Besides it seems a bit too good to be true that she see them there while they are together alone

  5. @ 8ghosts

    Well, if you’re referring to the preview, it can be deceiving, so don’t be jumping to conclusions right away.

    I still stick with Hiromi, even when she was acting pretty bitchy this episode.
    Poor aiko ;__;

  6. Shit, I knew it would happen, but I fear all my worst fears are coming to conclusion. Jun is actually fallin for Hiromi, and Shin and Noe seem to have their own thing. Don’t go to the darkside Hiromi!

    What’s the third picture in the preview about? Two guys in a scuffle looking up a girls skirt? Why and who?

    Poor Aiko, but it was to be expected. She’s kinda a dark horse in the race for Shin’s heart because she wasn’t even a blip on his radar in the beginning. I say this because Shin’s the one who hooked her up with Nobuse.

    White Star
  7. O_o

    Maybe Jun will start to imagine his sister instead of Hiromi and it will end with nothing happening… an outside shot, but better than the other obvious option. I don’t like how this series is going.

  8. Analysis and speculations of this episode
    Shin explains to Ai it’s too late for her and it would be unfair with Noe as he rejects Ai.
    Finally Noe and Shin have initiated their kiss as couples and this shocks Hiromi big time after seeing them.
    It seems the truth was unfold regarding Hiromi’s past as Shin’s mother finally told her everything.
    No in the 3rd picture in the preview, that was Ai. She’s declaring her love for Shin as her last resort. The 1st picture in the preview is Hiromi stripping at front of Jun that he on the other hand denies her (probably stop her) and told her about the promise at both ends.
    That hand shown in the second pic in the preview was probably Ai’s hand.

  9. @ShadowFang: Jun is blushing because Hiromi calls him Siscon.

    Hmm, lotsa drama about Hiromi this time. Noe and Shinichiro make a really cute couple, far better than SxH in my opinion, because Hiromi would drag the show down with her emo-problems. It’s a pity that it’s too early for SxN to last until the end.

    For Hiromi’s sex I hope Jun rejects her next time, because she looks like a dead fish as she’s stripping down and all she’ll accomplish by having sex is hurting herself.
    Seems like Shinichiro is having a fight next time, probably because that guy insulted either Hiromi or Noe.

  10. Maybe the person who hiromi is taking off her clothes to is noe. Since the shirt on the preview looks like noe’s jacket. Something could happen, like hiromi and jun goes to jun’s house, then noe comes in and makes a mess on hiromi’s shirt so she let’s hiromi borrow jun’s or noe’s clothes

  11. Oh my god..I can’t wait the next episode…! Hiromi, why do you do that???I don’t like the way you are..!!! You make me mad…i don’t think you easy girl, but in fact you are easy girl:(…This anime only 13 episodes?? I’m guess the end with Hiromi 55% and Noe 40% and Aiko 5%, poor Aiko…>.

  12. Man What is hiromi thinking???

    Some people say thats not her shirt but if you look at screen shot…

    There both the same shirts.

    As for the third screen shot with the girls legs, I think that Noe. Why you ask, because it looks like Shin and that other guy were fighting and nobuse in the background, what there were fighting over I think that other guy was talking about noe and Shin steped in, thats what I think.

  13. From the look in Hiromi’s eyes in preview I don’t think real Hiromi will be able to have that kind of eyes when she take off her shirt if the one in front of her is Jun.

    Hope what I think is right….But we can see Shin’s Mom start to feel sorry for what she did to Hiromi so we might find something about what she told her that it’s the truth or not.

  14. I love Jun more and more each episode. And I don’t think Hiromi will do the thing you all think though. But even if she would, Jun may not wanna do it. But well, I’m rooting for their pairing even though there’s high possibility it’s Shin X Hiromi in the end.

  15. OK, avert your eyes if you don’t want spoilers

    Show Spoiler ▼

  16. And to add in, Jun tells Hiromi about his & Shin’s agreement in dating the other girls. Also, the second picture in the preview, the hands belong to Noe as she is digging near the bird cages most probably looking for the rocks Shin put down…

  17. Well, I’m officially bored with this anime. Drama Drama Drama. That and the only girl I cared for, in this series, just got shot out of the waters. The show has already started to spiral down an all too familiar plot and I don’t want to waste my time with wondering, “Will so and so man up? Will so and so just speak what’s on their mind? When will so and so finally pull out a gun and go crazy?”

  18. Well to be truthful, how I seeing this ending, will be in a ‘everyone is happy’, meaning the pairing at the END of this series will be Aiko falling for Miyokichi, Shin actually falling for Noe, & Hiromi & Jun falling for each other. For some reason, this anime doesn’t give me a ‘someone will be left crying’ sense of feel.

    Anyone else get this?

  19. I KNEW there was a good reason for doing a Lego after watching episode 4…will continue monitoring until i get a hiromixshin ‘happy’ ending, then will marathon it.

    RL for me is emotionally horrible enough as it is, i don’t need more from what i watch!

    I have a sinking feeling all the main cast are gonna be crying their guts out at the end…True Tears, indeed.

  20. i hate noe

    it’s the female writer fault, she destroyed the attractive hiromi just like that. first noe say “hiromi is lying for wanting to be her friend” and it’s hiromi fault. next hiromi say “your smile is so cute, that’s why you stole shinichirou’s heart” in jealousy mode. noe is always right and shiny, hiromi is always wrong and gloomy. the writer made hiromi a bitch while making noe an innocent angel.

    it’s obviously the female writer is writing herself in noe, it’s obvious the female writer is having a little jealousy game of attractive girls like hiromi. that’s why she gave noe all the positive light while giving hiromi the negative light. the more she give noe well treatment, the more i hate noe.


  21. Noe is a Mary Sue, she never do anything wrong. She is always misunderstood by people. It’s always other people’s fault. Hiromi have to be a bitch and a slut so that our Mary Sue can become a lovely and innocent angel. Hiromi is a fake and pretentious girl because our Mary Sue is a honest girl who speak and act her true feeling.

    Seriously I think Noe is the worst and most unattrative female character in anime history.

  22. In the preview it’s definitley Hiromi and Jun in the screenshot, although it looks like they’re both facing someone and not each other, so the possible conclusion is Jun didn’t want it, or they were stopped by someone. Just speculation but we’ll find out pretty soon.

    I don’t understand the Noe hate, she didn’t do anything lol, Shin was the one who went after her in the beginning she just feel in love him, since he seems to ignore her eccentrics. Hiromi is just a mess of feelings, this was caused by the harrasing nature of SHins mother, so she can’t openly express her feelings, Aiko I guess didn’t want to dissapoint shin when he was asking her to go out with his friend, although this backfired and she has to endure her mistake.

    Shins just needs to chose really, he can’t keep leading on the remaining girls, if it’s going to be a ShinxHiromi ending, I would be dissapointed that he let on Noe, who really likes him.

    I guess TT is all about the angst. Lol.

  23. Forgot Jun, meh I understand him partly, since it seems to him, SHin was a suitable BF for
    Noe, since he wasn’t weirded out by her.

    Although it does seem he has more secret feelings for his sister, it could be just strong brotherly love.

  24. I see de raw and the love that shin had to Hiromi is DOWN why de love of Shin and Noe UP with this episode.

    well I only said that Shin will FALL IN LOVE more and more to Noe than hiromi (darkside is reveal soon of this girl)

  25. All I can say about the Preview pic with Hiromi is this: It deffintly takes place in her bedroom.

    Also, I checked out the red in the shirt in that pic. It doesn’t match up with the red in Jin’s shirt or Noe’s jacket. Also, you can see that that person is taller than her, so it’s most likely a male and not Noe (who is definitely shorter.

  26. Oh my god, every weeks this anime is killing me with their cliffhanger. Well anyway, I hope im wrong for the preview. I don’t mind who SHin is going to end up with since everybody seems good to me.

  27. I’ve got it! It’s Shinchiro! She’s offering herself to Shinchiro as a last shot desperation move! That’s why it’s in her bedroom! It could only be him!

    At least, I’m hoping…

  28. The wildcard factor that’s going to play out is that Noe still doesn’t know that Shin made a deal with Jun. I can see a plot where Hiromi tells Noe that Shin is going out with her just to keep his end of the bargain. Hiromi might also feel she’s justified if Jun rejects her overtures (alluded to in the picture).

    All in all, if there’s going to be some friction for Shin and Noe in the near term, the series might play out their reconciliation and finalizing their romance.

    I think the most logical pairing at this point are definitely Shin-x-Noe, Nobuse-x-Tomoya and Jun-x-Hiromi.

  29. Even though this was full of Shin/Noe moments, it had lots of Shin/Hiro undertones. The implications of those undertones are strong, which is slightly disheartening for a Shin/Noe fan like myself, but what happens will happen I suppose. The whole Aiko bit was pretty sad, too. I feel sorry for both her and Hiromi. I’m still rooting for Shin/Noe, though.

    That being said, I have a little bit to say to noe_hater. First, the beauty of anime and manga is that once a writer decides on an ending wholeheartedly, rabid little shipping warriors cannot do a thing about it. If she wants to be a Mary Sue, then she’s going to be a Mary Sue. Informing all the people reading the comments of this blog probably isn’t going to make her want to change herself. Many writers put parts of themselves into their characters. I don’t understand why people think that’s such a bad thing to do. People disagree with each other all the time, but there are usually much better ways to vent off this disagreement than attacking the person you disagree with such violent words. Second, I personally find Noe to be one of the best and one of the most attractive female anime characters ever.

    Not everyone is going to be happy with the end of this anime, and people will just have to accept the ending for what it is (myself included). If it goes your way, then be happy to see your pairing come through in the end. If it doesn’t, then start writing fanfiction if it bothers you so much. You can be your own Mary Sue, then.

    Cynical x Idealist
  30. I am thinking that AI-CHAN’s story isn’t over…not by a long shot. Shin’s buddy isn’t going to accept a “pity” love based on Shin’s rejection. Any guy who loves a chick doesn’t want that “sympathy”, and vice versa.

    There’s still some cliffhangers here, and we can only speculate which lucky gal will eventually end up with Shinichiro. BUT I also have a feeling that something tragic will also happen.

  31. The color of the shirt in the preview is closer to Noe’s jacket than Jun’s shirt.

    That being said, you should put a poll up to see who’s getting cheered for. I’m curious, mainly because Noe’s probably going to become the ending girl and I dont’ care for that at all.

    Wannabe Otaku
  32. Looks like everything is almost ready for the scene when we really see True Tears come down. I can’t wait to see what happens next! Is this following the novel? Or is it going to put an anime-originated mix to it?

  33. I really doubt this spin’ about Shin and Hiromi being siblings.

    It is sick when you have your own sister wanting you, even though you’re the brother, and vice versa. There has got to be a simple explanation. Haven’t the Japanese ever heard of DNA or blood testing? LOL

  34. its still not the end for aichan… i guess. its everybodys game now… and as for the preview… i think hiromi is smiling… hmmm… then a cut from noe’s finger and peeping toms on the third pic… think about it.

    aiko… continue the fight…!!!

    setsuna f. seiei
  35. I agree. More power to Ai_chan!

    She’s the only one of the 3 with LESS ISSUES. Easy on the eyes, an “older” woman (wink), and not as wacky as Hiromi and Noe.

    On the bloody finger, looks like Jun met his fate on the motorbike and Hiromi survived somehow?

  36. I doubt that Hiromi will bring Jun into her room or even in the house. I’m sure that would be someone else my guess is that maybe Shin himself not Jun or Noe.

    The reason might lie why Shin have to fight with some random guys in the school. I’m sure that would not be because of Noe but because of Hiromi. And I can see how Hiromi might not try to be honest again and do something stupid in front of Shin who I think tried to protect her from rumors about Jun and Hiromi.

  37. HELL NO !!!

    I’m still sticking with shin x hiromi…

    A lot of people here don’t like where the show might be going, me included…
    But we’ll never know until it reaches the end…

    can’t wait till next week !!!

  38. Unless there’s a misunderstanding or a really bad joke Shin’s mom perpetrated on Hiromi, Shin x Hiromi is a no-go. Hiromi is the best looking of the 3, but showing her extreme jealousy for a “brother” is creepy.

    On the other hand, Noe is a free spirit and genuine in her demeanor. Can’t see that in Hiromi, whom I would prefer BUT the “my dad is your dad too” thing just gets on my nerves.

    Bah, I also like Ai Chan who has less issues and responsible, a trait I like because she runs her own restaurant at that young an age. Freakin wow. Wished my GF had her own resto.

  39. I’m inclined to agree with the person who made the comment that it’s probably Noe next to Hiromi in the preview. The colour of the shirt matches Noe’s. It would also make sense why we hear Shin’s mom saying “stay here a bit more.”

    As tragic as the possible sibling relationship between Shin and Hiromi may be, I think it’s Noe’s who’s being the most wronged. Her actions and feelings towards Shin have always been honest and straightforward, and though he may be developing feelings for her, it’s clear that he’s not over Hiromi. If things continue that way, he’s going to end up breaking Noe’s heart.

  40. My simple explaination for the undressing scene:

    1) Hiromi left Shin’s house because living there makes her unhappy.
    2) Since she don’t have anywhere to go, Jun offer her to stay in his house.
    3) Noe offer her clothes to Hiromi, for changing.
    4) So Hiromi is undressing in Noe’s room, changing into Noe’s clothes.

  41. @dx and to all whos saying their girls are the prettiest… goodlooking is subjective… i would prefer aichan for being goodlooking… 😛 although hiromi’s that good looking too..

    wish something would come up and will make aiko back to the race…

    setsuna f. seiei
  42. I do think it’s Jun who is with Hiromi.
    Noe isn’t that tall, and a it doesn’t look like a jacket.

    Look at these screens.

    And the preview shot.

    Looks like it’s Jun to me, even so we’ll find out for sure in couple of days. Even so isn’t the raw out? Anyone seen it so we can get it over with.

  43. I’m not understanding the Noe hate either…. I agree with Lyi… all Noe has done was be honest with her feelings. I actually think she’s a better fit for Shin…despite Shin and Hiromi’s past and their obvious current infatuation for eachother I don’t really see what else they have going for them… Shin has a light and innocent chemistry with Noe that has the potential to grow into something deeper. They actually kind of remind me of Kyon and Haruhi…with her being straightforward, eccentric, and misunderstood ..and him being one of the few who understands her… I’ll even go as far to say that I don’t mind seeing Hiromi and Jun together…even if that whole thing was purely plot driven and schemed they’re both sorta mellow and rather serious characters… But I do see how the plot could go either way… a great portion of the drama is primarily set on Shin and Hiromi and their inability to resolve any of their issues… but I don’t see it ending pretty! Noe, as much as I like her, will have to open her eyes a little bit or else she might end up getting hurt…Hiromi needs to sort out family issues in order to settle issues with Shin, and Shin needs to figure out who the hell he’s digging….Ai and Nobuse …sheesh…what to say about them…All the characters are just too far into denial…but heck at least it makes for good drama…^_^

  44. after examining this preview’s pic… have all of you noticed? its a WOMAN… in this preview… she has a BOOBS… facing the screen, look:

    im guessing this is shin’s mother… and i don’t know what the heck is hiromi’s doing stripping in front of shin’s mother… maybe some birthmark or something to show in hiromi’s body…

    also in the preview… these are the words that retained in my mind..,
    a girl’s voice saying something like this…


    and who do you think is saying this…
    well, my speculation would be NOE…
    she is saying this to shin… and i think she IS DISAPPOINTED on his actions maybe
    because shin, still, IS ROOTING for HIROMI after all…
    think about these…

    setsuna f. seiei
  45. this anime rises my blood pressure… watching next episode previews i felt i was going into an anxiety attack i never knew that this anime was going to be like this i though it was going to be like any other cute harem anime… guess not!!!!

  46. This is just a theory, but I think that from the preview, shinchiro’s gonna get into a fight at school. I don’t know why but I think someone’s going to make a comment about he and noe going out, and noe will walk in on it! We’ll see if I’m right !

  47. Aiko is avoiding nobuse, mostly because Shin told her that he couldn’t go out with her because she is nobuse’s girl. She was right when she tried to break up earlier, but Nobuse would have any of it. She is really uncorfortable with him. Nobuse is also trying to give her some space, as he know “ASKS” her before coming in the shop, unlike before when he just barged in.

    I don’t hate Noe, I only resent her for the way she got with Shin. It was a forced relationship and even if love is born from it It will still will be born from Jun forcing it on Shin.

    I hope the guy that said that Jun got hurt is right and that he won’t be able to play basketball anymore, like a broken leg or something similar!

  48. webnt_preview,
    you definitely brought us anger and relief at the same time. I don’t really like spoiler, but the one you just gave out really put me at ease now, heh…

    Shin X Hiromi FTW!

    Anyway, for Noe, I view her as a person who sees the world through her own interpretation, without truly grasp the actual situation due to her youth and innocence. So, I don’t think she’s ready to handle a relationship. Having just a puppy love is possible, but definitely not a relationship — not even high school love relationship.

    Being the way she is, I think Noe is bound to get hurt when she is meeting face-to-face with reality. It’s indeed painful, but it’s unavoidable. It’s a part of growing up. If she doesn’t learn it with Shin through this love issue, it’s gonna be something else sooner or later.

  49. shin mother was right about hiromi she is just like her mother (very easy) but is she rele goin for home base wit this kid (jun) all i no is that i hope its sunday already cuz i rele want to see wat everybody thinking if hiromi is gunna do it. either way shin deserves alot better than her bro.

  50. Setsuna F:

    I am in agreement with you, beauty is subjective and yes, Ai Chan has the best qualities amongst the 3.

    I also have an inclination or itch that the story between those 2 hasn’t been resolved yet, even with a few episodes left. What makes Ai Chan attractive is her responsible demeanor of having her own resto at that age. She has the capacity to take care of Shin, being older and that you could compare the dynamics of this relationship to why Hiromi looks up to Shin.

    Hiromi might be the best looking, but it’s character that counts. Hiromi;s destructive jealousy was a turn off, and just a “woe is me” tantrum that needed to be done with Jun.

  51. I freaking love this show. The scene where Hiromi realizes she’s talking like Shin’s mom, by the chicken coops, is amazing. Great animation.

    My vote is for motorcycle accident next week, but maybe they just get pulled over or something.

  52. If there was a bike accident, it shows Hiromi in a later scene, BUT Jun is nowhere to be seen so some unfortunate event must’ve happened. The police car also added to the speculation.

    On Shin’s mom, I just can’t feel sorry for her having all that negative emotions pent up after all these years against Hiromi. Maybe the saying “the children pay for their parent’s sins” are true, but she has gotta let up.

    On another note: Moetaku’s translation when Shin finally lets his emotion speak to Noe…

    Moetaku subs say’s it ‘I LOVE YOU NOE.
    Woof (Ayako) subs says it’s “I LIKE YOU, NOE”

    That’s a big difference in translation, and confusing to a lot of non-Japanese speaking viewers.

  53. i REALLY DOUBT THAT HIROMI IS GOIN TO DO IT WITH JUN> i really doubt it even has to do with sex. i really do. the creators so far have tricked the scenes up in all the previews up to the point where something completely different happens from what they are showing at the end of each ep.

  54. >>so the subs really misleads the people here… and it shows the difference in emotions of the characters in the anime…>i REALLY DOUBT THAT HIROMI IS GOIN TO DO IT WITH JUN> i really doubt it even has to do with sex

  55. gome…my comments got cut off. The summary is that that looks like Noe’s coat in the Hiromi undressing scene, and that Jun is nowhere to be found in the previews. That could explain the police car.

  56. i know i’m late but this show just keeps on gettin better
    poor aiko-i feel for her the most at this point..she’s a lone(shin ttly rejected her) and she won’t be able to see nabuse cuz of the guilt.she scrifised and wasted haif her life goin after shin and ended up losin everythin..her friend,her brother but mostly her deginity(after offering herself to shin by force)what makes this heartbreaking is that she was even wilin to become a bad person for him(she loves him this much?).why is she insultin and lowerin herself so much?..the aiko part of this episode was honestly depressin just like episode 6 and 7.seein her and nabuse is heartbreakin(him tryin so hard to get her to open up and her not bein happy and not wantin to hurt him anymore)
    she kept on goin after shin for so long and she’s fully a ware of’s her fate,destiny to lose it all(such a sad character)and she has to accept it no matter how painful it is.she knew it was comin all along(her losin everythin)but she was in denial(she knew she was makin mistake)
    somethin hurts her so bad that it doesn’t matter anymore.she was scared of it(losin)and refused to accept her fate .she kept on clingin to that tiny shred of hope such a hopelessly human thing to do that she and shen might get toegether someday even if it’s a rebound love(love sick)if this was school days i couid see going for pity sex(too bad shin is not mokoto LOL)ppl say she has the least problems .i say she’s messed up/screwed/wako even more than noe rlly(her and heromie have too much problems)her love for shin is so unhealthy.heromie and noe are healther.even if aiko got together with shin she’d still not be happy(she’s not happy,never was and never will be happy becausce it’s a gainst her fate) and even if she got together with nabuse she’d still feel guilty ..that confession came out of pure depression (she’s was desperate and frustrated)i’m sure aiko never wanted it to be that way(the confession)she wanted to tell him in a different way and not grab him and kiss him and scare the shit out of him (mayb kiss him)but not by force(what kind of gurl who forces herself on a guy who doesn’t even like her just so he wouid at least look at her where’s her deginity? she was ttly forcin herself on him(she seem passionate)it just shows that she’s been sufferin for so long and was very desperate .it’s like she wanted him to feel sorry for her(she insulted herself)she couidn’t even tell him how she feels and kissed him sneakly behind the towel(she was scared and knew that she’d face rejection)if she didnt manage to put an impact on him all these years then he’s definitly not the one.stealing a kiss is not gonna change all that .as much as she want’s him to he won’t/will never go for her not even a rebound love(pity gurl)not even by force.i’m askin u aiko fans is what aiko doin normal or healty ?and u tell me she shouid end up with shin because she is cute and the one with the least problems?noe is cute too and her love for shin is healther same goes for heromie(only if they’re not siblings)it’s sad because she loves him the most and sarifised so much and did the worst for him she wanted to give all to him(even if it means givin her verginity) and he shut her down so hard without even sayin a thankyou tellin her he’d forget and pretend it never happend (after what’s she done for him all her life gone with the wind)and i don’t blame him for rejectin her(it’s won’t be fair for both noe and nabuse)was wastin her life worth it?aiko’s love for shin is almost forbidden because of the many obstacles they have:
    1-he loves heromie
    2-the brother/sister relationship they have and that he see’s her as a childhood friend.
    3-he’s datin noe and she’s datin nabuse
    4-the friendship between him and nabuse(which is very strong)
    aiko built those obstacles herself (she built so many walls between her and shin)and they kept on growin(tellin him he’s like a brother to her,helpin him undestand heromie,datin nabuse)she was tryin desperatly to forget all a bout shin only to realize that she’s even fallin for him more than before(i don’t think she kept nabuse all this time only to use him)she wanted to give him a chance .maybe because she never expect to get anywhere near shin(she wanted to give up on shin)she doesnt wanna hurt nabuse but she’s hurtin him and herself and seem to hate herself for it that why she asked him to let go of her (she wanted him to hurt her and break up with her first).how can she remove all these obstacles by herself?why shouid she struggle through with it?why go for someone who won’t/will never like her?if she continued to do this she couid end up losin her mind rlly and go school days on him.
