Hikari and Tadashi go on a date so Tadashi can fool his mother.
I was a bit surprised to see a Tadashi focused episode like this, mainly because he seemed to be the character with the least amount going on. He never seemed like an interesting character back-story wise, he was always just there to make some kind of comment that might be more blunt then others and then get hit y Akira. However for a character that seemed to have nothing going on for him, his episode was pretty interesting. Although it didnâ€™t all come from his story, it was fun to just see him and Hikari on a â€œdateâ€ but it was still more then I expected form an episode revolving around him.
It seems like next episode weâ€™ll finally get some Kei and Hikari development, hopefully. I thought thatâ€™s what this episode would entail, as I didnâ€™t pay very close attention in the preview for this episode and thought the guy who was with Hikari was Kei. Still, Kei and Akira are the only characters that still need a bit of closure. However we already pretty much know everything about Akiraâ€™s situation. Although we donâ€™t know what caused her and Yahiro to never see each other again, it really doesnâ€™t matter as nothing will change until Akira makes the first step. I do want to see how that concludes, as itâ€™s the most interesting of the back stories with the side characters, however I want some closure on the main story too.
