When Kouichi learns of Maoâ€™s intense hatred of studying even though there is a test coming up he tries to organize a study group for her and everyone else.
Woah, what the hell was with hat look that Mao gave Kouichi and Hoshino at the end of this episode. That was huge. For the most part this episode was rather lax. Things are moving forward, but slowly. I had thought that there wouldnâ€™t really be any conflicts with the relationships except perhaps Kazukiâ€™s situation. However the look that Mao gave Kouichi seemed like she was jealous or something. I mean, woah. Now since sheâ€™s going out with Kai they have to deal with ending the relationship plus just getting over the fact that Mao will admit to even herself that she has feelings. I really didnâ€™t think that they would end up going the route of Mao having feelings for Kouichi after she started going out with Kai. However it seems like they will still go for that which will certainly make things extremely complicated later down the road. As I said though, things seem to be rather slow moving right now to that its not interesting this way, but as far as seeing any of these big drama points I think it will be a bit, but they are certainly setting those moments up.
Aside from that, as I said, too many things arenâ€™t happening. Itâ€™s still very cute and fun to watch the back and forth between Kouichi and Hoshino. The way they both easily show they have feelings for each other yet are shy about it is very fun to watch. Itâ€™s a bit refreshing that there arenâ€™t dozens of girls after him, this way they can progress the relationship a bit better. If Mao doe have feelings for him, as is perhaps indicated, it will be very interesting in who he ends up with. Iâ€™m not really sure who he would end up with or even who I want him to. Hoshino is extremely shy and cute and the two of them obviously are a fairly good match yet Mao has that whole childhood friend thing. I just think it would be a lot sadder for Hoshino to loose then for Mao, so I would say right now I want Kouichi to end up with Hoshino, but that could easily change. It doesnâ€™t look like its going to e a happy go lucky ending in either situation.
