With Tooru’s birthday approaching, we take a look back at some nostalgic moments along with the addition of cake!
Entrance Exams are serious business since it determines what school a person will get accepted to. Seeing Run’s study habits, the flashback vaguely reminded me of one of the earlier episodes of K-ON where Yui has a cram session with her friends in order to pass the makeup exam. The only difference is that Tooru is the teacher and she shoves a pile of books for her to study with some ending up in the bathtub! Run eventually passed the exams with flying colors and got accepted. Besides the test results, It was nice to see Yuuko being her usual self 2 years ago with the pencil lead hits her forehead… I loved it!
Since its close to Tooru’s birthday, the anticipation of cake is predictable. While it was funny to see pictures of Tooru and a year later, Run feeding each other with cake, it does not compare to the hilariousness of the cakes she brought in. Apparently, there is a cake that has wasabi as the inner filling. This seems very farfetched since wasabi is usually used for favor, not for cake filling. To make it more hilarious, Yuuko would be the one to eat it since everyone has a liking to see her feel humiliated. This only adds to my sympathy for her.
In the end, with the realization of Run-chan, Yuuko and Nagi going on their third and last year, I can only imagine what will eventually happen similarly to the second season of K-ON. Like Azusa, Tooru will eventually have to say goodbye to her friends and it’s not easy. At least she still has Yukata and Miho to keep her company. Besides, there is still another year left until they graduate, so I wouldn’t worry until the time comes and enjoy the remaining time together.
