Hoshino tells Sana the story of her past with Shuri and Shuri and Shuu tell everyone that Shuri will be moving away to London, but Sana believes there is more going on.
Holy shit, that episode was amazing. This episode easily beats out the last episode. Not only did it have an amazing revelation to Hoshinoâ€™s character and hat situation, it was incredibly emotional. I teared up at the end, which surprised even me. This was a non romance scene that I teared up at. Just seeing Sana there running up and yelling was so incredibly sad because I did remember the scene form the start of the series when Shuu did the same thing. Then seeing the way Shuu was reacting to it, it was tragic and it wasnâ€™t even about romance just the friendship they had. Iâ€™ve cried plenty of times at some tragic romance situations, not many times in situations like this though. I just think the whole situation with Shuu and Shuri running away is tragic. Even though they are together doing it and it might be a better alternative to staying under control of their father who was sending her away, it was still horribly tragic. I wasnâ€™t quite sure what I wanted to happen, as they couldnâ€™t really stay there but I really didn’t want them to go because of how sad it would be that they are leaving their friends. The situation would be different if they were the main characters and didnâ€™t have the others as friends, but the fact they are loosing something by going made their situation all the more tragic.
Of course, Hoshino had a huge part in this episode as I mentioned. Although I think the Shuri and Shuu aspect of this show was more emotional, Hoshinoâ€™s part wasnâ€™t minor at all. I was NOT expecting her to be the one to send the letter or the fact that she loved Shuri or the fact that she has half psycho half the time. As she told her story I just kept getting hit with all theses things I didnâ€™t see coming, show she was thinking to herself that Shuri should suffer more and more and was getting enjoyment out of her pain I was like oh my god sheâ€™s crazy. However at the same time I felt bad for her. Itâ€™s obvious what she was doing wasnâ€™t good or in any means the right thing to do, however her situation of continuously feeling worthless because she was being treated normally, having to hide herself, not knowing what to do, I did sympathize with her a bit. Its a bit odd that there really isnâ€™t that concrete of and ending to her story, as Shuri was crying when she left and then left for good, Hoshino gets kind of screwed in the end but its still sad for her. Even though she did these horrible things she isnâ€™t that bad of a person really.
All that the show really has left at this moment is the story between Nanaka and Sana, and as the preview shows it seems like it will jump right into it. It seems perfect with the amount of time left. There is a short while so all the focus will be really fast and drama filled instead of having to slowly ease into their story after Shuri and Shuu. I do expect for a romance conclusion to pretty much come at the same time they conclude Nanakaâ€™s fears and her tragic past. Sana being there for her and supporting her through it will likely not only conclude that itself but bring them close enough that they will have their romance ending. I really do hope that it is rather concrete of an ending, like they kiss or at least confess and stat going out. Iâ€™d rather hate it if they just ended with the two of them being closer and saying school lie will be normal now, maybe something will happen, blah blah. Here may still e a chance for Shuri and Shuu to return but really I doubt it. Unless they have an epilogue at the end of the series that takes place at least a year later I donâ€™t see them returning.
