When Sumomo gets worried about Haru liking Yuuki, she is unable to do very good when competing for a stardrop, causing her to become even more depressed.
Holy Shit! Wowâ€¦I was not expecting there to be a confession at all. I mean, I had JUST previously made a comment about how they were in fact doing a good job of mixing a lot of romance and relationship issues in with the entire magic thing, but still I didnâ€™t think that Haru would confess to Sumomo at all. I thought maybe, if I was really lucky they would show it at the very end, like the last episode or something where it really wouldn’t actually change anything but just be a kind of nice conclusion. But wow, this is great. Itâ€™s not that itâ€™s a bad thing that this happened at all. Iâ€™m really looking forward to seeing all of the things this causes to change. After all, itâ€™s obvious Sumomo likes him but will she be too shy to say anything or ill Haru have to run away because of the lamb thing, will Sumomo find out about the lamb think, what will she tell him about the whole encounter without knowing sheâ€™ actually talking to him. I mean, wow. I really think they are doing a great job of having the relationships and romance not be some side story thatâ€™s only occasionally mentioned in addition to the magic. I really almost donâ€™t care about the magic anymore as right now itâ€™s just a means to make Sumomo tell Haru things that she doesnâ€™t know sheâ€™s telling him.
I am a bit surprised that they didnâ€™t have more romance tension coming from Yuuki. Although they did have a lot in this episode, such as Sumomo seeing the two of them which is what really caused her hesitation, thatâ€™s really it. Iâ€™m not surprised that there hasnâ€™t been enough up to now. Really there has been a lot but as I mentioned above, the confession is really big. Any tension from Yuuki such as Sumomo thinking Haru likes her is kind of gone, which is just a bit odd because I think they could have pulled a bit more from there.
