Suddenly, a long-black haired and ghost-like girl shows up around the dorms and Kaoruko becomes scared. Who is she?
While Kaoruko washes up, she saw a mysterious figure. She becomes so scared that she screamed and Koyume wondered what is wrong. Of course, Koyume couldn’t find her. Koyume and Kaoruko went to search for the culprit but can’t find her. When they walked back to the room, Kaoruko sees a ghostly figure and runs into Ruki’s room. The girl has long black hair with bangs covering her eyes wearing a black dress. It happens to be Fuura Suzu, a second-year student who specializes in horror manga.
A day later, Kaoruko continues to freak out as Suzu obsesses over her. Kaoruko couldn’t take it anymore. With the help of her friends, they lock themselves so Suzu can’t come in. Suzu reveals that she is lonely. Kaoruko eventually sympathizes with Suzu and decides to open the door. Shortly after, Kaoruko realizes how pretty Suzu is and decides become friends with her.
In the second half, Miharu panics over the fact that Tsubasa might have figured out that she was cosplaying. During class, she catches a sleeping Tsubasa who stayed up all night and takes her to the hall to question her. She doesn’t learn anything new. Eventually, she catches Tsubasa drawing in her notebook during class in the afternoon. After taking her to the roof, she reveals that she is a big fan of Wing V.’s manga and asks her questions. It’s not until Kaoruko spilt the beans that Miharu knew, especially after Tsubasa showed her the finished manuscripts. With that, Miharu promises to keep Wing V.’s true identity a secret.
While the title for this episode is misleading, it’s a metaphor showing how scared Kaoruko was towards Suzu. It’s not surprising since Suzu have a liking for Kaoruko’s long hair and scream. I have to admit that it’s funny seeing Suzu scare Kaoruko and even Ruki. Surprisingly, Koyume took it well. Then again, this is not surprising at all since she easily makes friends with everyone.
Of course, Suzu’s bangs that cover her eyes and her smile makes her look scary, especially when she appears suddenly. I find it amusing that she does the same thing to Ruki. It’s surprising how well Ruki dealt with Suzu’s scare attempts. In fact, she incorporates her experiences into her manga. Also, I find it humorous how Suzu tries to use Kaoruko for her horror sketches. It seems as if she has some kind of obsession over her.
In the end, it’s interesting how Kaoruko ultimately decides to become friends with Suzu despite becoming scared of her at first. It’s not surprising since Kaoruko understands what Suzu is going through. In fact, Kaoruko still have a hard time interacting with others aside from her friends just like Suzu.
Still, I have to admit that Suzu is actually a pretty girl after all. She has a nice figure and a cute face. Her white dress that she wore the next day looks great on her. Not only that, she has a nice voice. I guess this is the reason why Kaoruko changed her mind. Either way, it looks like Ruki have competition despite her denying that Suzu is her rival now. Still, I wonder who is Suzu’s roommate that suddenly disappeared on her.
If you recall from last time, Maharu was cosplaying as the main protagonist from Wing V.’s manga last time. It’s apparent that she is a big fan of anime and manga, especially the series made by Wing V. I find it amusing how Tsubasa tries to hide the fact that she created it when Maharu also does the same thing. I guess Maharu became suspicious after seeing what Tsubasa wrote that Kaoruko had to reveal it. At first, Maharu was in denial. However, when Tsubasa pull out her finished manuscripts, Maharu was in awe.
I suspose that Maharu took the big reveal well. Thankfully, Tsubasa didn’t know that Maharu was cosplaying. Still, I can understand why Tsubasa don’t do signing sessions and attend events given that most readers think that Wing V. is male. That can explain why Tsubasa wants Maharu to keep it a secret.
In the end, it’s nice to see Tsubasa become happy with Maharu after she shared her passion for Tsubasa’s manga series. Still, I wonder why Maharu have a strange fascination with knee caps. Either way, she finally finds out her students actually create manga.
As for Kaoruko, it seems that she finally got her theme down, but still can’t figure out the story. Either way, at least she is making some progress despite taking a while to accomplish it. She will get there, someday.
