As Sophie goes out to get her book autographed, does this seem like a date? Maybe.
With the day of the book signing coming up, Sophie prepares. She eventually shows her book collection to Akari, all which contain autographs. On the day of the signing, Akari and Sophie heads to their destination. They eventually step into a donut shop. Akari wanted to see Sophie eat sweets, but she shoved them to Akari. While heading to their destination, Sophie’s parasol blew away. Akari uses her sweater to protect her from the sunlight. With that, Sophie manages to make it to the signing.
The next day, Akari brings Hinata over to Sophie’s house for a visit. Before heading there, she rented a bunch of horror movies. When they arrived, Hinata learns that Sophie is not as scary as she imagined after realizing the rumors are simply a misunderstanding
From the looks of it, Akari’s feelings for Sophie probably hit new highs this time. While I find it cute how she does Sophie’s hair in twin tails and it takes her a while to realize it, this is where the so-called date comes in. Apparently, Sophie shows Akari her book collection. It’s quite amazing that she collected autographs from authors like Edgar Allen Poe.
The funny thing is that Akari manages to guess Sophie’s age as 360. As expected, it’s quite amazing that Sophie is that old considering that she looks like a 13-year old girl. As expected, Sophie finds this rude, since one shouldn’t talk about a girl’s age. Sadly, Akari casually brings up Sophie’s age when her friend, Hinata comes over. Still, it’s understandable that the thought of having a lover kind of makes Sophie a bit sad since she will outlive others, including Akari.
As for Akari accompanying Sophie to the signing, it feels like a date. While it’s funny that Akari wanted to take the shortcut, it usually goes to places Sophie dislikes. However, Sophie decides to go into a donut shop because it’s the stuff high school girls eat. This make it seem more like a date and it got Akari’s hopes up that Sophie will eat the sweets. Sadly, she shoved them to Akari instead. After all, Sophie can’t eat human food and doesn’t want it go to waste.
The scene where Akari protects Sophie from the sun was heartwarming. It’s nice to see her protect the person she likes the most. Although Akari became very emotional, it’s quite obvious given how much she likes her from the last episode.
In the second half, Hinata finally comes over to visit. As expected, Hinata can’t handle horror movies well. I find it funny how Akari decides to rent a bunch of them. Regardless, it’s nice to see Hinata find out that Sophie is not scary as initially thought. Apparently, those rumors regarding the mansion and a flying being is just Sophie doing her regular routines. Still, it seems that Hinata is now jealous with Sophie stealing Akari’s attention. This is not surprising since Hinata sees Akari as her idol or an angel since her childhood.
Still, I find it funny how Sophie is scared of B-rated horror movies, especially one that involves a slasher who resembles Jason Voorhees. Still, it’s funny how she becomes disappointed by how the blood is wasted. Then again, it’s probably just ketchup. ¶
