Now that Ruka and Hiyori manages to rescue Miyako, Momo finds out that they are further apart then they appeared to be.
In the beginning of the episode, Momo still feels troubled by what just happened. She remembered a certain memory that she had a flashback from last time. Also, she is afraid to reveal that Hiyo’s older sister, Mio is also a Reflector, but on the other side. After all, she doesn’t want Hiyo to go into despair and end up like the Reflector in her forgotten memory.
Meanwhile, we find out that Miyako is moving in the dorms. Yes, she brought a lot of boxes and Ruka, Hiyo, and Momo helped unpack. It’s not too surprising since her mother is a terrible parent. I think Miyako moving away from her is good for her mental health.
Miyako called Momo over as she wants to become friends with Ruka and Hiyo while figuring out their differences. Sadly, Momo won’t help train them with the resonating. Yes, Ruka and Hiyo asked Momo if she would train them. Sadly, she declined for now since she believes that they did it by chance. Then again, this may just be Momo.
In the base of the red ring team, it seems that Shino is suffering from something on her left wrist, but she hides it. Mio comes to check on her. Of course, Shino lied about her condition, but she seems worried about Mio more for hiding her past. Of course, Mio ensures everything is fine as it’s her duty. Still, I think this has to do with her intentions of taking other girls’ fragments. Maybe.
As expected, it seems that Momo doesn’t want to help Ruka and Hiyo out. With that, Miyako tries to do something else. Yes, she wants Ruka and Hiyo to get to know each other. They eventually see Ema and Yuma playing tennis as Hiyo thought about paying duo sports to bond with Ruka. Of course, Ema will receive some focus later in the episode. Despite this, it’s obvious that Hiyo and Ruka doesn’t know much about each other.
Sadly, when they find out about their interests, it seems that they are worlds apart. Still, I find it funny how Hiyo checks out the moles on Ruka’s body. Even so, their differences become more apparent when Ruka wants to cool down with the air conditioner awhile Hiyo wants to crack open the door. Also, Miyako did some secret recordings of them and apparently, Hiyo doesn’t want to hang her shirts on hangers.
Miyako eventually shared the reason to Momo why she recorded them. She tried so hard to show that they get along so Momo would acknowledge them. Sadly, this seems a lot harder than she thought. It’s not too surprising given their opposite personalities. Momo realizes that they are moving forward despite this challenge while she haven’t changed at all. Not only that, she caused an outburst towards her family and drove them away. After this, regretted doing this.
Meanwhile, Ema is facing difficulties of her own. Yuma had trouble with her last match, which causes Ema to become troubled. Not only that, Ema faces hate from her classmates for her pair not winning the matches. Yuma feels that she is holding Ema back. It’s surprising since they won games before. This eventually causes Ema to become emotionally upset and releasing the negative feelings. Of course, Uta and Nina finds out to steal her fragment.
With that, Momo, Ruka and Hiyo gets the call to intervene. Of course, Ruka and Hiyo had trouble even facing off against Nina. Eventually, Nina and Uta performs a resonance attack, Momo manages to block the attack. It’s obvious that she came into terms with her feelings and decided to protect Hiyo and Ruka so she won’t hurt anyone again.
As expected, this gives Ruka and Hiyo a chance to realize that difference is their strength, and they won’t let that hold them back. After all, they share a common goal, protecting everyone’s feelings. With that, they defeated Uta, brutally. The funny thing is that when Nina rescues Uta, Uta is happy that Nina embraced her. Either way, it’s good that Ruka, Hiyo, and Momo foiled their plan to take their fragment.
In the end, Ema eventually calms down and creates a training plan for her and Yuma to follow. Hopefully, they can stage a comeback. Also, Momo officially moves into the dorm along with Momo reenrolling into the school. Despite failing the same grade two times, it’s obvious that Momo did it to protect Hiyo and Ruka. Hopefully now, Momo can teach them how to use their powers properly, hopefully. ¶
