Defying the Student Council’s decision, Konatsu plans to go ahead with the plans to sing.
After the harsh announcement, I still got the feeling that the idea of canceling the festival before closing the school is going over the top. It’s just like kicking someone who has been beaten up badly on the ground. Still, they haven’t roll back the decision as the council went head with the cancellation. To make things worse, the construction workers have the students throw out the props along with the festival stuff. It seems that those executives at Bain Capital really wants to make the student’s last moments miserable. However, I don’t think it will work since Konatsu and company will just rebel against this harsh proposal.
I admit that I almost tear up a bit when Wakana met Naoko at Mahiru’s grave. While I have criticized Naoko for her harsh attitude, at the same time, I felt bad for her. She is just devastated with her inability to keep the Choir Club that Mahiru started running. Still, Wakana’s interaction with Naoko was heartwarming. She allowed her to hear the composition, which of course reminds her of Mahiru. It’s quite obvious now how Mahiru came up with her music. Just like Wakana, friendship motivated her to write music. It’s an art form to share the experiences that nobody can forget.
While it’s ridiculous how the executives are trying to thwart the students from doing the festival. Now, they want to suspend students to go against their will. Even so, I predict that the crowd will be small until it grows when the performance starts. If there is a large enough crowd, these executives will pee in their pants and regret their decision to make condos there. Even if he gets his way, he will be screwed since Japan is still recovering from the “Lost Decades” and the buildings will lie vacant for a long time. ¶
