Everyone prepares for Tonkatsuâ€™s birthday, but the girls get worried when Ikuto shows loneliness after staring a picture of his.
This episode was pretty good. Itâ€™s a bit better then some of the previous ones that were a bit boring, this didnâ€™t really have that problem. Although the focus seemed to be Tonkatsuâ€™s birthday it was really interesting to see how the more important focus was really on Ikuto feeling lonely or just remembering his sister. I was really surprised just about the fact he has a sister because it really completely changes some of the situations. If he has a sister it makes his time on the island less of a complete vacation, as there is someone who he would want to return to. Although there was some aspects that made it have a rather serious and dramatic tone, it sill had some great comedy bits. I loved Chikage dressing up in what she believes the current fashion is, dressing up in a mix of different fetish cloths thinking it was normal. I do hope they continue to have some of the serious parts, especially focusing on the romance possibilities there are, but I guess its fine for there to be great comedy bits too. I just hope they don’t try to balance it too much and make both the comedy and drama less effective. If they focus on either one itâ€™ll be great.
The talk they had about returning or not really did leave an impact on me that it could be much more important later. They didnâ€™t really deal with anything now, as it was kind of a false alarm, but it really makes me wonder if they are going to have an episode where Ikuto has to decide whether or not to go back or not. Originally I was really thinking that if ever a time should come, he would just choose to stay on the island because of Suzu and all the friends heâ€™s made. After all it seemed like he had nothing in his old life. However, now that they mentioned a little sister that is very very cute btw, it really does add something that may cause him to be more torn between the issue.
