I was really impressed with this episode, so much that Iâ€™m doing a post on it when I donâ€™t normally, at least not for every episode. I really have to say that before this episode I wasnâ€™t really a big fan of Chiaki. I found her quite annoying and I didnâ€™t think she really added much to show. However I thought this story involving her was beautiful. The whole romance involving death or living forever is always an interesting subject. I thought it was quite moving which is surprising because of me not being a huge Chiaki fan. Still, her individual story for this episode was great. It was nice to see something that wasnâ€™t completely horrible and tragic, but something a bit more sweet. I was really impressed.
I also became quite interested in the romance aspect of the show. There had always been the possibility of something going on and developing with Kaname but it really didnâ€™t get that complex until now. It seems like there is a bit uncertainly as to whom Kaname likes and who likes him when youâ€™re dealing with split personalities. Iâ€™m not even sure who he supposedly likes and who like shim, if itâ€™s Fumi or Mikawa. Although they may be the same person essentially they are different personalities, so it defiantly gets really complicated. Iâ€™m guessing it might turn into something in the end where the coma one wakes up and the other one disappears but their personalities merge a bit since the non coma one, I think thatâ€™s Fumi, is really just part of coma one. (Itâ€™s even hard to explain because they technically have the same names too, her full name is Mikawa Fumika after all)
