Hoshino tells Kouichi of her situation and why she is sad when she begins to get closer to him and further in their relationship.
Wow, I was a bit surprised at this episodeâ€¦well, really just the ending scene, as that seems to be the most exciting in every single episode. Still, I wasnâ€™t quite expecting Kouichi to be so supportive of Hoshino moving away. I thought it would be a situation where he would be devastated by it and they would pretty much break up. The way I saw this show as going later on was that Hoshino would move away which would free Kouichi up, and he would end up with Mao after overcoming a bit form the break up. However, if her moving away doesnâ€™t kill the relationship then itâ€™s going to be a lot harder for him to end up with Mao. Iâ€™m not saying thatâ€™s a bad thing, as I feel sorry for Hoshino, but they keep dropping so many hints about how much Kouichi and Mao kind of have feelings for each other so Iâ€™m just not sure whatâ€™s going to happen now.
Right now the problem seems to be that even if Hoshino doesnâ€™t leave at all, the big thing that is indicating that the relationship wonâ€™t work is that when Kouichi was looking at Hoshinoâ€™s lips, he remembered Mao and Mao kept thinking of Kouichi. There is obviously something there and when it is shown it will be great.
Iâ€™m really feeling extremely sorry for Sakino. She is showing herself to be such an incredibly nice and kind person, yet itâ€™s almost blatantly obvious that Kazuki is going to end up with Futami, sheâ€™s pretty much doomed. Itâ€™d be one thing if she was mean or bossy, but she has shown herself to be a very good person and I just feel sorry for her because Iâ€™m really pretty certain sheâ€™s not going to end up with Kazuki.
