Finally, Riki finds the truth behind Mio’s suffering and her desire of wanting to disappear.
If you know already, there is no way that Riki would let Midori have him forget Mio. As she takes her place and attempts to change everyone’s mind, it was just heart wrenching. Thankfully, I’m glad that he decided to see the poem in the end as it reminds him of Mio and convinced Midori to allow him to meet her once more on the beach. However, it’s obvious that Midori taunted him so he can do something about it.
When Mio revealed the truth about Midori, it’s rather heartbreaking. Apparently, Midori was just an imaginary friend that she came up with. She created her because of her loneliness. The saddening thing about the whole thing is that her parents took her to a psychiatrist and drugged her up so she would forget about Midori. It was just cruel not only for the fact that she will never see her again, but it made her life miserable. This is probably why she wanted to disappear from the world as the poem suggested, which is saddening since its her parents fault. Thankfully, this didn’t happen as Riki manages to bring her back to normal. With the help of him having her join Little Busters, she now has friends that care for her. Because of that, she won’t feel lonely anymore. This resolution of forgetting her imaginary friend was the final thing needed for her to become cheerful again.
After all that drama, it appears that Midori merged back into Mio, which is why she smiled while reuniting with her friends. This means that she won’t be overly gloomy anymore. Sadly, I don’t think we will actually see her play baseball. Besides, she might bring the whole Boy’s Love thing with Riki to a whole new level in the future by paring him up with Masato or Kengo next. It’s a scary thought, but it’s certain to happen considering Riki’s somewhat effeminate appearance.
As Mio’s loneliness is finally resolved, we are looking for another transition episode with a game of Twister, a bath scene and cute girls in cute outfits. Not sure what they are doing, but it certainly looks fun. ¶
