It’s almost time to prepare for a competition. The only problem, Rin kind of failed her examinations, thus Misa has to put her foot down. In other words, no training?
Now that Rin relationship with Misa is closer, Rin faces another hurdle. Yep, it’s those examinations that she failed. Now, Fumika is forcing her to study to pass those exams. Otherwise, she won’t be doing any more training and that is bad news.
Believe it or not, anything easily distracts Rin. Sure, Misa prevented her from using the simulator, Rin tried to entice her by unbuttoning her shirt. Of course, this wasn’t very effective. Eventually, she goofed off in the library looking at an article Kiriko brought up. Apparently, it’s an old article about Misa. Apparently, she is talented at shooting that she ranks on the top, even at a high school level. Obviously, she avoids the topic since studies are more important after all.
In the end, Rin managed to pass the makeup exams. With that, they can go back to training, right? Not so fast as Rin collapses. I guess Rin wants to make up for lost time given that she had to focus on her studies. I guess that wasn’t a good idea, but it’s nice to see Risa nurse her. Not only that, Misa got to sleep in Rin’s bed and smell her sheets. Also, Manatsu, Yuzu, Emily and Jennifer came to visit Misa and Rin too.
Eventually, Rin recovers from her sickness. In a dream, it seems that Rin experienced a nightmare that her mother is gone. We still don’t know what happened to her mother, but she was crying. Misa seems to notice and she stayed by her side until she fell asleep. Either way, it’s a nice Rin and Misa bonding episode. Also, it’s funny to see a glimpse of Dina’s and Ziyu’s show looking for a monster in the river. At least we get to see the shrine maiden sisters next time. ¶
