I just noticed, but what’s with Kotone’s expression here? I can’t quite put my finger on it, but she seems a little off, awkward laugh and all. I figure it has something to do with what happens next episode.
Being around everyone, Shizuku had started to change bit by bit. Taking the first step is always hard, I’m glad to see her trying to experience new things. It’s always nice to see characters who grow out of their shell.
Meanwhile on the HaruYuu side, we have Haruka day-dreaming, where she’s the bread-winning, motherly housewife to Yuu’s NEET lifestyle.
Funny, considering Yuu seems the more mature of the two.
At the mention of the unused classroom, the two start to reminisce. It’s the small details which are really fulfilling, seeing Yuu smiling gently as the group opens the classroom, I couldn’t help smiling too.
Poor Haruka, Yuzu’s right though, she’s way too focused solely on Yuu. That retort from Yuzu was kind of cute, she’s really no good with things regarding love huh.
They’re really out of sync, but that’s part of the charm of this show. Everything at the festival is set up by students and they are appropriately amateurish, like that thing Yuzu bought.
Haruka’s face when she realizes she’s not the only one Yuu talks to. Speaking of Haruka’s loner tendencies, I went to check and… Haruka only does one preview, the very last one, which she does alone.
It’s the first time seeing Haruka hanging out with the group outside of discussing something regarding Yuu and, I have to say, she’s acting pretty childish.
We witness not only the start of Kaede’s manipulative relationship with Haruka but also, ‘Kaede/Yuzu’ the beginnings. I’m conflicted now, I was satisfied with just two couples, now the Boke/Tsukkomi pair is getting subtext too…
Reversal time, Haruka’s giving the cold shoulder as Yuu tries to make it up to her. She’s left with no choice but to bestow her sacred relic upon Haruka.
Anyone watched K-on? It was pretty good,
This show really does things to my heart. It’s the way they portray intimate moments, transitioning from the cheery beat of a love song to absolute silence, we get a serene moment with only the sound of Haruka’s rather poetic narration.
In it’s silent execution, they convey a feeling better than can be put into words. The two really felt like they were in a world of their own.
