Tomoya continues to try and help Mei by finding a way to get Sunohara to act like his old self.
I was very impressed with this episode, and the overall Sunohara arc that they have been doing. I realized right off the bat that although Sunohara is usually just a comical character used for laughs, that he has a potential serious and intriguing story, and I really have to say that I found he did. The story got dark at times, Sunohara and Tomoya seemingly hating each other but all for the better good. Sunoharaâ€™s character and his motivations really seemed to come through. In the end, although Mei was critically important to Sunoharaâ€™s story, it came down to Sunohara. Although Mei was what caused him to come bursting though and show he cared, it was still about Sunohara and I think he really changed from being someone who didnâ€™t care at all, to someone who fought for someone else.
It seems from the next episode that itâ€™ll be focused on the dorm woman, which Iâ€™m a bit surprised to hear. Iâ€™ve not actually played the game, and if I did I probably wouldnâ€™t be surprised at such, but seeing as how sheâ€™s not really that important of a character, it has me surprised yet intrigued at the same time as to what they are going to do with her character. Although they just finished doing Sunohara for a couple of episodes, and heâ€™s not exactly the main character, heâ€™s a lot more important, or was at least featured a lot more then the dorm woman, who I know has a name theyâ€™ve mentioned but I fail to remember it now. Tomoyo showed some interest in her already this series, so perhaps weâ€™ll find out why, like stories of her in high school, perhaps being very Tomoyo like. It may even turn into something that becomes a short Tomoyo story, however I for the most part would rather have them focus on some new stuff, like more of Tomoya and Nagisaâ€™s relationship, but Iâ€™m sure that will eventually come.
