Renji continues to help Chihiro with writing her book while Miya looks upon her feelings as she waits for the date with Hiro that he stood her up on.
HOLY SHIT! That episode was fâ€™ing amazing. This is by far one of the most interesting and exciting episodes of this series and I donâ€™t remember a single episode ever getting me so damn worked up about a show especially when it wasnâ€™t the final episode or the climax of the series. I was on the edge of my seat continually fidgeting while watching this show. At the end too, after the credits, I screamed â€œNOO!â€ and slammed the nearly empty two liter nearby to the ground. I mean, Iâ€™m not even a huge Miya fan, Iâ€™m still undecided really who I want the love triangle to play out yet the actions and events in this episode just pulled me in so much I felt for the characters. It really drew me in.
First of the major things was Chihiro and Renjiâ€™s story. Their situation has always been very interesting and intriguing, there are so many possibilities for how their emotions are acting considering Chihiroâ€™s condition that it is continually full of sudden turns. Iâ€™m still just fascinated by the story they are writing. The story itself is interesting and intriguing but the way it connects to Chihiroâ€™s situation is just as fascinating. All of the talk about the girl escaping from reality and loneliness and about good or bad endings. Obviously this has some connection to Chihiro herself and isnâ€™t just a story, so that alone is interesting. However even not even regarding that, Renji had a breakdown and literally just spazzed out when Chihiro asked if he wanted to kiss her. I donâ€™t entirely blame him and the situation has to be so weird emotionally. Chihiro seemed sad when she was saying it and I agree with Renji a bit, after all she handâ€™ said anything about liking him and it seemed weird and out of place, however from that even more misunderstanding took place causing Chihiro to run off, easily putting a huge dent in their relationship and because of Chihiroâ€™s memory could easily be devastating for any relationship, romance or not, between them.
Then of course the other extremely huge thing was Miyaâ€™s breakdown. Itâ€™s now pretty obvious what her situation is. She doesnâ€™t have a terminal disease or anything to make her tragic but she certainly has a shit load of emotional problems with abandonment and being all lone, vanishing from peopleâ€™s hearts. This has almost pissed me off with how much this show is making me care about the characters. I didnâ€™t really see that big of a draw from Miya ending up with Hiro until now. Kei is the one with the troubled past that seems like it would be devastating for her to not end up with Hiro, Miya was just a random person. However now that Miya freaked out because he missed a date, going crazy believing he is forgetting about her and all, that was huge. Now itâ€™s devastating and tragic for either one of them no matter how it turns out and I donâ€™t see how they can really make it be a happy ending for both girls. Iâ€™m still unsure of who I want to end up with Hiro or who is going to, but I certainly care a lot more about it now. They both have reasons they should be with him and reasons it would be horrible for them to not.
