When Shin sees Noe with another guy, he assumes she has a boyfriend and jumps to some conclusions while trying to figure out if the reason Hiromi wanted to befriend Noe was to get close to him.
I absolutely love this series so far. Itâ€™s a great romance anime, having characters that are much more different then some other more clichÃ©d roles. The thing that kind of surprises me when I think about this show is that I find it so interesting when nothing much has actually happened yet. No big events, no huge character revelations, nothing really has happened in the overall sense regarding character relationships, feelings, or drama. Still, it manages to be very interesting. Iâ€™m still very unsure of Hiromiâ€™s feelings. Itâ€™s not obvious that she likes Shin if she does, which makes things a lot more complicated and interesting. She says she likes Noeâ€™s brother, which fits the whole getting close to a person close to the one you like, but then she seemed to react strangely if that was true when she saw that Shin was in earshot. So overall, Iâ€™m not sure but Iâ€™m certainly looking forward to finding out.
One thing that seemed a bit unusual or at least something that seems like it will have some significance later on is how Shinâ€™s mother seems to almost hate Hiromi. His father was pretty much saying they should treat her like their daughter but not only did his mother not think that way, she seemed disgusted at the idea. Iâ€™m curious as to what kind of past or issue the two of them have.
Ai really caught my interest in this episode. Iâ€™ve always been aware of her, considering sheâ€™s one of the three girls featured in the OP so much I knew she would be important, but they are starting to reveal a bit more now. Even though it seems like sheâ€™s technically going out with Shinâ€™s friend, there are defiantly some feelings there, if nothing else because itâ€™s obvious due to her being a main character. She seemed to understand the whole getting close to someone whoâ€™s close to the person you like thing, which could be what was her original plan when she made friends with Shinâ€™s friend and then whatever relationship formed from that. Nothing big has really happened at all from her, and I doubt it will any time soon. She seems like the kind of character who will get maybe one episode of drama after slowly building it up while they deal with the others.
