Noeâ€™s brother asks Hiromi out on a date, as per Shin’s request and informs Hiromi that Shin and Noe are going to be going out.
Wowâ€¦this was a pretty damn big episode. There was drama going on all throughout with pretty much every character, that tied with the freaking huge revelation that Hiromi is probably Shinâ€™s sister is immense. I pretty much suspected the reason Hiromiâ€™s mother disliked her is because her mother had an affair with her husband but I still didnâ€™t really think they would end up being siblings. It just seemed like too big of a thing to happen. I mean, itâ€™s a pretty damn serious topic to have blood related people have romance and few anime have done it. Now, although they say that thereâ€™s a â€œchanceâ€ that they are related Iâ€™m having trouble believing they would give us this huge possibility that will cause all sorts of interesting and complex situations only to reveal in the end they werenâ€™t actually related. It seems to be that the more realistic and better thing for the show is if they do in fact stick with their attempted claim that they are related. Now, whatâ€™s going to happen as a result form this I donâ€™t know. Itâ€™s obvious Hiromi likes Shin and the other way around but the sibling thing is something hard to get past, at least something not easily looked over especially for a show that is this well done.
It doesnâ€™t really feel like they are giving Ai much development. They gave her a rather big cliffhanger form last episode with her little burst that showed she cared for Shin but they kind of dismissed that, only later going on to have her kind of tell Shinâ€™s friend she doesnâ€™t like him, she likes Shin. However even despite the set up from last episode the focus still stayed on Hiromi and Noe. It definitely looks as if sheâ€™s going to be pushed off to the side. Noe and Hiromiâ€™s stories defiantly see to be more intertwined. It seems like theyâ€™ll conclude Ai and then conclude Hiromi and Noe at the same time. Itâ€™s a bit of a shame but I pretty much guessed that Ai had no chance of â€œwinning.â€
