Now that Hiori saw how Mio felt in the second reset, she and Ruka wants Shino to accept her feelings. Of course, it’s obvious how this went.
As expected, Shino is not happy that Mio revealed her feelings. Yes, the feelings that she believes are foolish and stupid. While we do see Mio make a vow with Shino, the funny thing is that she ends up going against her beliefs. More on that later. Of course, Ryoka shares the bad news that Shino defeated Yuzu and Lime. Now, the Common is now vulnerable and Shino can now control it.
Sure, Shino temporarily took full control of Mio. As expected, her goal is to have control of the Common, probably for a malicious reason. Sure, Shino talks down at Mio’s feelings, but Hiori is not giving up on her no matter what. Yes, it’s as if Shino is having fun seeing Hiori struggle.
Meanwhile, a large light appears in the sky, Miyako tries to warn everyone, and nobody will listen. Not to mention, the cell service is unavailable. Of course, this is starting to feel like that scene from Independence Day. Meanwhile, Yuri ran off somewhere. I wonder where she is heading.
Also, it seems that Mio is not the only one that has an interest in Shino. Yep, Uta no longer has interest in Nina. Uta in fact has a crush on Shino and doesn’t care about her plans. She likes the pain she is experiencing.
Of course, Shino reveals her fragment and uses it against everyone. Yep, showing the person’s “foolish feelings” as she unleashes the Leap Range. She entraps everyone inside the Leap Range in their negative feelings. Of course, Hiori sees the jewelry box shine and decides to open it. It eventually allowed them to come back to their senses, except for Uta of course.
After mostly everyone regained their consciousness, Mio shares that she cares about Shino’s feelings. Sadly, Shino reacts negatively to it as she shatters her own fragment and heads up to the Common. Hiori and Ruka tries to stop her by attacking her, but it was too late.
With that, it looks like the Common merged with the real world as Shino’s plan of controlling it comes together. Of course, we see a glimpse of Utsuko Kokoro talking to Yuri on the phone. As expected, she is one of the playable characters in the upcoming game, Blue Reflection Tie/Second Light. She notices something strange happening in the city. Shino wakes up in the new world wondering where she is. This makes me wonder if it’s too late for Hiori and Ruka to fix this. We’ll find out soon enough.
