Now that the dorm’s demolition comes near, Kaoruko is destined to get at least one piece of work approved.
It seems that Kaoruko and her friends have to write down on what they plan on doing after they graduate high school. While Ruki plans on becoming a nursery teacher as a second choice and for Koyume, working at a sweets shop, Tsubasa and Koyume can’t figure out a second choice. Eventually, Ririka shares her experiences with creating manga and why she didn’t pursue a professional career as a mangaka.
With the closure of the dorm coming soon, the girls help Ririka pack the storage room. After Kaoruko removed a poster, she saw encouraging messages that others left on the wall. This motivates her to try her best to create manuscripts that will hopefully make it pass the approval process. She eventually finishes them and shows them to Mayu. However, three of them have issues, which causes Kaoruko to go into despair.
After looking at the fourth manuscript, Mayu decides to give that one a try since it looks good. Eventually, she informs Kaoruko that her work will be given a trial run as a consecutive two-part guest part. If it’s successful enough, Kaoruko’s series might receive a serialization.
At last, we are coming to the end as the girls figure their future plans with the usual job forms. Kind of surprised that none of the girls consider college as an option. Still, Ruki’s and Koyume’s choice as a second alternative doesn’t come at a surprise. Also, it’s understandable that Tsubasa doesn’t want to take over her family’s business given how strict her mother is. Still, it’s sad at Kaoruko still self-depreciates herself as she doesn’t have much faith in herself. Of course, this changes later in this episode. As for Suzu, she wants to look after people and scare them like an actual ghost. Then again, I highly doubt she plans to do that as her actual job.
Still, I have to admit that it’s interesting to learn why Ririko didn’t pursue a career creating manga. This is such a shame since her work garnered a lot of praise. I guess meeting the fans’ expectations were difficult for her to meet. Still, it’s too bad we didn’t get to see what manga she creates, although it’s quite obvious.
Lastly, there is Kaoruko meeting her fate as she shows four different manuscript proposals to Mayu. If you didn’t realize soon enough, Kaoruko tried to imitate the genres Koyume, Ruki and Tsubasa creates. While they have promise, it falls short because of a glaring flaw and of course a man showing up chopping wood. I have to admit that the third proposal have a lot of promise besides being cliched.
As Kaoruko was about to give up, Mayu finally shows interest for the last proposal. It’s about the daily life of four girls based on her own experiences as a mangaka. It’s surprisingly titled after this show’s title, which is interesting and quite fitting. Still, it’s good to see Kaoruko finally have something after a year of endless rejections and getting nowhere.
While he heads to the end, it’s sad to see the dorm go. Is it goodbye for Kaoruko’s friends? Or is it that they will be moving into a different place. Since the series is ongoing, it’s my guess that the girls won’t split up after moving out. ¶
