I bet that everyone have waited for this one episode to see if Rihoko is going to get “Friendzoned” again or not. Well, we will share the good news after the scheduled break…
Hell yes!!! It actually happened! They got together!
Thankfully, Rihoko didn’t receive the “forever alone” treatment for the second time. Junichi finally confessed his feelings after overhearing her confession for Junichi when she encountered Makabe. I supposed that he was so oblivious towards her for a long time despite being childhood friends has caused him not to recognize her love earlier. Perhaps, he only needed a small of push like finding out her bust size, cooking and hearing her confessed to get motivated. This actually worked in the end even though I had a bad feeling in back of my mind that she might not get a good ending with her doing all the kitchen work. Not only that, the lack of them actively kissing was a little disappointing. I guess we can’t get everything all the time, but at least they progressed on with their relationship.
Aside from their fated admission of love, there were some really funny moments. Miya apparently went overboard with the shaved ice after all the recently brought ice cream melted. During the night, she actually sleepwalked into Junichi’s room and tried to go bathroom there. He gave such a hilarious reaction while preventing her from taking her pants off in his room. Also, during Rihoko’s and Junichi’s childhood, they loved playing with fireworks. They still do now, except that Rihoko loves the sparkling kind, which apparently brought them to the popular position after she got a bit clumsy and dropped it on him. Otherwise, it was a great episode as she got her deserved ending.
With two arcs down, this leaves Ai next in the spotlight. This only means one thing… There is more swimsuit action.
