Hate may be a strong word, but one can’t simply hate each other forever.
While people were going up in arms over Kanata’s harsh behavior towards Haruka in the last episode, they suddenly resolve their differences. Believe it or not, they are just pretending to hate each other to stop the family from ultimately killing Haruka. Although I believe that Kanata could make a good actress, especially from that disguise, I also think the Disciplinary Committee really hated Haruka even though it’s all an act. Even so, it’s clear from the flashbacks that she cared deeply about her even though they had to pretend to hate each other in order to survive. Because of that, this makes me wonder if Haruka intentionally caused trouble around the school for all the same reasons.
On the other hand, I think Kanata definitely had it worse compared to Haruka. Sure, they pin the criminal thing on Haruka, but that entire whipping and stress from high expectations Kanata experienced is a lot worse. With Kud’s description of seeing her have a hard time to sleep, it’s obvious that neither of them could avoid the wrath of child abuse. This can explain Shou’s sacrifice so his wife can live with the husband she loves the most peacefully and end this cruel family practice. Although unsuccessful and had most of his life wasted in prison, at least he was brave in revealing the family’s true colors.
Sadly, we never find out the truth on who is Haruka’s actual father. Despite this, I’m shocked by how they resolved the issue quickly. They simply disowned the child-abuser family. After the two done this, I felt that they could have done this in the first place before it got worse. Then again, it’s hard to convince Haruka to stop hating her other twin even though it’s all an act. Hopefully, we will see them together a bit more often since they aren’t bounded by expectations from their family. ¶
