When Nono and Mirei get locked in a storage room together and Nono temporarily looses her voice, Mirei thinks back to when they were friends and she invited Nono to the Drama Club.
This episode was great, and had a focus that I wasnâ€™t quite expecting them to have yet. They had recently been dealing with the drama behind trying to inspire and put confidence in Mugi. After all, sheâ€™s the main character and has the man role in front of many people. However, I really loved the focus they had on the friendship between Nono and Mirei. It was really interesting to see, as first Mirei came off as kind of a bitch but rather soon they revealed what the past was between them. However, even though going into this episode she didnâ€™t really seem like a bad guy, this episode made her character seem so much more interesting and more justified in what she did. If anything, it made me kind of mad at Nono, because Mirei was doing what she thought was best for her and it does seem as if Nono is acting rather rashly. I really started to feel sorry not just for the characters but just that they were in a situation that made them rivals like that. At first it was more like just wanting the good side, the Nono side, to win over Mireiâ€™s club but now Iâ€™m not sure just because it made me feel sorry for that rivalry, not cheer it on.
Iâ€™m really interested now in how they balance dealing with making Mugi a more confident person and repairing any relationship between Nono and Mirei. They both seem to be pretty prominent issues. They have to at least deal with Mugi since she is the main character and all, and her gaining confidence and being a better person in general due to acting is partially the point of the whole series, but this episode and some others have shown that itâ€™s a pretty big deal the relationship between the two clubs. I hope thatâ€™s resolved well in the end.
