With the anime slowly turning around in some aspects, I can’t help but laugh a bit as I think about just how far we’ve come since episode one.
Yuki and Yanagi
With everyone else’s relationship prospects failing quicker than the housing market did back in 2008, the only two that I have some hope left for is Yuki and Yanagi. Out of the group they seem to be the most grounded while simultaneously not letting whatever Kakeru has spread to them. Toss in how cute and somewhat flirty they were together and I think this might be our best shot at finally seeing someone’s feelings turn into something more than shattered dreams and a broken heart.
On the other hand, wouldn’t it be something if Touko and Sacchan actually started dating? While the chances of it actually happening are close to zero you have to commend Sacchan for being so bold at the end of the episode. Not only did she incorporate a beautiful looking moon to set the mood but the way she craftily spoke her feelings without actually saying the words was pretty sly.
That said, I don’t understand why she did all of this with Hiro right there. I wouldn’t really consider what she did as a “proper explanation” nor do I think it’s right to shatter his dreams in-front of someone else. I mean, she had the gall to call him her boyfriend right in-front of her mother! All I know is that I was giving Sacchan the benefit of the doubt but after this week’s episode I’ve changed my mind. Because it doesn’t matter how much she cares/is in love with Touko — she had unfinished business with Hiro and again ended up using him to serve her self-interests!
Kakeru, you weird bro.
I really don’t understand Kakeru. After weeks of trying to keep himself shrouded in this mysterious aura and actually rejecting Touko’s feelings, he suddenly has a change in character and falls hard for her. But instead of showing some kind of affection or at least giving her some sort of sign he continues to act just as weird if not weirder! And don’t get me started about his ability to hear fragments or his clones.
All I’m hoping for is that we get some kind of proper explanation before everything comes crashing down.
This show is like one disaster after another. Right when you think you’ve weathered out the storm something else comes flying right by. The problem is everything feels so fragmented and unrelated that right when you think you have a grasp over where the story is going, it makes two rights and a left just to throw you off.
Anyways, if you’ve made it this far it means you’re still here with me to see this to the end! And hopefully, we get something meaningful by then. See you next week!
