Kouichi takes Hoshino to the beach for a date so she can have some happy memories before transferring.
This episode was pretty good. Like all the other episodes though, it didnâ€™t get really interesting until the very end when the two of them kissed, but that was pretty big. Of course, Mao seeing it doesnâ€™t help to make things any less interesting, as weâ€™ve seen before she obviously has feelings for him. Actually seeing him kiss her will probably impact her pretty heavily. However, I still feel that right now Kouichiâ€™s story isnâ€™t that interesting, at least not as interesting as Kazukiâ€™s which they didnâ€™tâ€™ touch on much here. Until Mao actually confesses her feelings, Kouichiâ€™s arc is really just dealing with a relationship where both people like each other and just have to get over one of them moving away. Itâ€™s not a love triangle at all right now until Mao actually confesses or does something.
Although itâ€™s not really anything important or big, I did really like Kouichiâ€™s momâ€™s character. She was hilarious in how she dealt with the news of Kouichi being with a girl. I just loved how she told Hoshino all his favorite foods and so on, then leaving to give the two of them some time alone. I hope they show her a bit more later on, although she wonâ€™t be important to the story, it would still be nice to see her around for something else.
It looks like the next episode will be pretty big. The show seems to continually release little bits of development that make things interesting, but for the most part it moves pretty slowly. The next episode, jut from the preview, does seem like it will be a bit more high drama then the rest, as Mao seems to go off about something, she cries to Kai, Sakino confronts Futami, and asks Kazuki about the experiments. All of that just from the preview, Iâ€™m guessing the episode itself will be pretty big so Iâ€™m looking forward to that.
