At last, we find out the main reason Satone received hardly any screen time thus far.
I admit that while I was happy to see Yuuta’s and Rikka’s relationship make some progress, I started to wonder about Satone as she hardly received any screen time in the past few episodes. She finally receives a good amount of screen time as she gives a special item to Yuuta so he can recall the memories he had with her. It seems that she developed feelings for him when they were in middle school, which caused her to start losing her Chuunibyou side of herself. She ends up giving everything up except her illusions to remain the person she is now.
Although I felt bad for her for the fact that she had to give up her feelings for Yuuta, it does show a big difference between her and Rikka. While Rikka has romantic feelings for him too, she hasn’t lost her Chuunibyou at all. Maybe not being aware of her Chuunibyou is the main reason she hasn’t digressed yet? Who knows, but I’m curious if Satone will continue fighting against Rikka over Yuuta now that she revealed the truth.
With Satone finally revealing her past, I wonder what will happen between her and Rikka? Will she help them progress their relationship or become her rival to win back Yuuta’s heart? To me, I think the latter will happen because she is unwilling to give up, especially for the fact that she still has a crush on him from all that flirting. Even so, I wonder what’s up with Mori Summer’s website since Sanae knows nothing about it? Is the person behind it trying to revive Mori Summer inside Shinka or steal Sanae away from her? I’m guessing that it could be Kumin or Yuuta’s sister since they have so much free time, but who knows. We’ll probably find out when they return from their class trip.
