Sakura continues to pursue Jun even though he knows of his condition yet Jun runs away.
This episode was A LOT better then I thought it was going to be. I was disappointed with the previous Jun episode because it took a situation which could have become something serious and interesting and made it into some extremely bizarre comedy situation. While they still had that in this episode to some degree, as the condition that Jun still turned into a different Jun was still there, the episode was at least a lot more focused on some serious aspects of everything. There was actually very little comedy surrounding Junâ€™s transformation in this at all. Instead, it was the base of Jun running away from the girl he loved because he didnâ€™tâ€™ want to burden her. Thatâ€™s a lot more of a serious thing that lead to some interesting drama then using that situation as a joke.
It seems like the next episode things will FINALLY get serious. If it has something involving Kei then itâ€™s likely to then involve Hikari. Iâ€™m really hoping they donâ€™t let this last chance go to waste. There has been pretty much zero Hikari and Kei relationship development. Even when they had amazing opportunities, like when Kei was sick from overworking and Hikari was there, they still somehow, bafflingly managed to make that opportunity amount to nothing. Now them taking this last arc involving Keiâ€™s grandfather I guess, which seems to look the same age as Kei almost, wonâ€™t make up for the entire series of slow progression, but if they have at least something it will help the show.
