Kotoko deals with her dadâ€™s decision to move them out of the Irie house.
This episode was pretty good but in the end it didnâ€™t really amount to much. Iâ€™m a bit worried about this series because of some things like that. Although it has some great episodes and its fun to watch, it feels like weâ€™re not getting anywhere, which is completely understandable for almost nay type of shoujo show. Seeing as how this series spans ten years and the anime is supposed to stop around way short of that, I just fear for a lack of closure the show is going to have. Even though this episode had a little bit of Irie being nice to Kotoko and it showed some of the emotions involved, without any big step one way or another it wonâ€™t mean anything in the end. I just hope the episodes stay fun as individual ones if weâ€™re not going to get any kind of closure.
The next episode seems like it will be more or less the same thing, dealing with no real huge progress. However it has Matsumoto in it so that will at lest be fun to watch, if not add a small amount of development. Right now one of the most interesting things they have going is the rivalry for Irie with Matsumoto. Although I donâ€™t think she will actually end up doing much, her presence might spark some good character development moments for either Kotoko or Irie.
