After Satou confronted the manager from last time, she is now dealing with someone following her home. Who might it be?
After telling the manager off from her former job, she decides to take the trash and dump it into the river. However, since someone is following her, she changes her mind. The following night, the stalker happens to be Kitaumekawa Daichi, who is one of her teachers. He tries to hit on Satou and grab her, but she pulls a panic alarm before it got worse. The next day. she makes a threat to the teacher that she will tell his wife and school about his cheating tendencies. Out of fear, he follows orders to throw out the trash containing dead bodies and burn it in a dumpster.
Eventually, Mitsuboshi Taiyou started working at the restaurant that Satou and Shouko work at. However, due to his Post Dramatic Stress Disorder from the sexual abuse the manager done at Princess Imperial, he fears older women. In the break room, he uses picture of Shio on a lost poster to heal him. He later saves a boy that a bunch of thieves try to beat up. Satou notices that it’s the boy that handed out lost child posters of Shio. She sees him as a threat to her love life. She takes a crowbar out of the closet and proceeds to try to take him out with it.
As expected, things get a bit more twisted. In my opinion, the teacher in particular probably shouldn’t be in his profession. It’s mostly because he hits on teenage girls, which is creepy. This is already apparent when he is a bit too obsessive towards Satou without knowing that she is the wrong person to love. Besides, Satou is already taken.
He learns the hard way as just like the manager in the last episode, Satou threatens him. He can lose his family and reputation along with possibly being convicted as a sexual offender. Either way, Satou manages to get him to remove the bags containing the victim’s dead body.
While it’s understandable why Taiyou is in the state he is in, we also see the boy wearing a hood. He awfully looks like Shio, meaning that it could be her older brother. Surprisingly, Taiyou manages to save him. The boy seems to have a strong distrust towards adults. Am I sensing a pattern here that adults are useless in this story?
As for that boy, it’s quite obvious that he is a threat or rather, the main rival towards Satou’s ideal love life. After all, he is looking for Shio. Still, we don’t know much about him besides that he distrusts towards adults. I have a feeling that Satou will probably spare him so she doesn’t create too much attention. Besides, we don’t know his motives quite yet.
Despite the dark moments, there are a lot of cute moments with Shio cleaning the apartment. Aside from the usual vows and Satou hugging her, something is interesting about the memories Shio has. She doesn’t seem to remember the face of the person in her memories. My only guess is that it could be her mother that she doesn’t remember anymore.
Either way, I find it amusing how one of her classmates ask if they kill for love. The funny thing is that they are sitting next to someone who already did.
