Now that Asuka is now back, it seems that Reina is angry and it’s obvious.
I knew that this will bound to happen since Reina saw a picture of Taki’s wife. To make matters worse, Reina asked Hashimoto about Taki’s wife. Given that they told her to ask Kumiko shows that Reina will eventually find out. There is no wonder why Reina doesn’t want to walk home with Reina. Eventually, Reina brought Kumiko to the same place on the hill to talk about it.
From the looks of it, it seems that Kumiko hiding the truth was not a good idea. I understand that Kumiko doesn’t want to hurt her feelings. At the same time, hiding it is not a good idea since Reina looks up to Taki. Believe it or not, Reina saw him during her childhood playing the trombone. From this, it’s easy to see why she looks up to him as a role model. Either way, Reina told Kumiko to forget about it for now.
Sadly, Reina’s performance started to suffer since she still thinks about it. It’s a good thing that Reina and Kumiko came to ask him about his deceased wife. With that, Reina can finally resolve her feelings and find out why Taki decided to become a band instructor. After visiting Taki’s wife grave, she is now ready to fulfill Taki’s wife dream and do her best at nationals.
As a whole, it’s surprising that Reina resolved her feelings. At least she knows what Taki’s wife wanted, to win nationals. While we don’t know if Reina gotten over Taki yet, is the band ready? We’ll see in the next time as they head to the final days before the final competition. ¶
