After Yune spent a whole day taking pictures in cute dresses, it’s noticeable that she has caught a cold with a subtle sneeze from the last episode. Sadly, her cold worsened along with Claude being a big jerk eventually led to the inevitable.
For most of the episode, Claude has acted like a total jerk to everyone, especially to the poor child that Yune tried to help from Episode 5. He believes that once a child becomes a thief, they can never change. However, Yune doesn’t necessarily agree with him since she has an obligation to help the poor even if there are consequences. From this, Claude hasn’t understood Yune and her Japanese customs yet. He simply prejudged her assuming that she can’t survive in France since she doesn’t know French. Even so, I just felt that his accusation towards the deprived boy was baseless since he doesn’t know the difficulties the boy goes through to survive. Also, this is more in line with his very pessimistic view on society as a whole over class because it prevented him from being with Camille. For this very reason, he was also disrespectful to Alice, who obviously cares about her. In spite of his rudeness, he finally redeems himself shortly after his guilt built up from Yune collapsing on the floor that he felt the need to make things right.
When Claude recognizes the guilt he caused, he searched for help so Yune would feel better. Ironically, he gets help from Alice, the girl he loathed a lot to get a doctor and the recipe for rice porridge. After he served the rice porridge he made for Yune, he also gives a weed arrangement from that boy that he blamed. From this, Claude finally understands that the people Yune met are special to her and eventually kisses her on the cheek (a bise), which Alice does in the first half. It was simply a heartwarming moment.
In the end, it was nice to see some drama with a heartwarming moment to help develop the relationship between Claude and Yune. While Claude has underestimated Yune at first, her cold has surely changed his perception of her. Furthermore, Yune’s reaction from Alice’s lack of knowledge of the Japanese stuff she brought was simply hilarious. Either way, it was nice to see how both of them perceives Yune’s culture differently and how her older sister take care of her cold when she was a child.
