Now that Umika promised Yuu and Haruno to go to space together, it’s time to start building those rockets. However, building a rocket that can go into space needs more than improving bottle rockets. It needs someone who has experience making them. Umika has someone in mind.
After Umika, Yuu, and Haruno launched the first bottle rocket near the lighthouse, they continued to work on better rockets. After several attempts, the best the girls got was 82 meters. Of course, the one Yuu made didn’t quite go so far since it’s not aerodynamic, obviously, with all those decorations. Still, Umika has aspirations of creating a rocket she saw on TV launching a satellite into space. Also, we finally see a glimpse of Umika’s little sister.
As expected, Umika needs someone more skilled at building a rocket. She has someone in mind but doesn’t know who until Yuu uses her forehead telepathy. After Yuu draws that person, Haruno knows who she is. It’s that red-haired girl who wears goggles on her head named Matataki. Umika remembered seeing her in her class in middle school. However, she is absent most of the time after a while, and it’s the same during her first day of high school.
When Haruno takes Yuu and Umika to Matataki’s house, Matataki seems to have an abrasive personality. She is basically like Ryou from Bocchi the Rock, as they are lone wolves. Still, Matataki seems mean and enthusiastic about building things. Umika seems a bit intimidated by Matataki as Haruno gives the class notes to her. I feel that Haruno might have something for Matataki, provided how friendly she acts to her. Also, it is funny how Matataki calls Yuu “Denpa Dango,” referring to Yuu’s hair buns and her self-proclaiming herself as an alien.
As expected, Matataki calls Umika out, being able to talk to her and needing someone to share her intentions. Umika couldn’t answer her questions. Believe it or not, she is like this when she wants to become friends with Matataki after hearing her introduction. Of course, she imagines herself trying to become friends with her. Sadly, Umika blew that moment when she tried to call Matataki’s name but couldn’t say what she wanted to. Matataki calls her out for clamming up.
When Umika woke up, Yuu was there. Yep, it’s lovely as Umika pumps against Yuu’s head. Yuu is worried about Umika for what happened last time. Yuu notices the light inside Umika goes out, and Umika is the only one who can light it again. Yuu is giving Umika the courage to try to talk to Matataki again as she is not as far apart as Umika believes. It’s just that Umika’s words aren’t connecting to her, and she needs to get her feelings out loud and clear. As expected, it’s obvious how close and intimate this scene is, especially with Umika’s blushing.
Ultimately, Umika could talk to Matataki and get to her, sharing her ambitions to build a rocket and go to space. The thing that Matataki doesn’t think it’s possible and that Umika hasn’t proved herself besides some plastic bottle rockets. Of course, I must give Umika credit for having the courage to challenge Matataki to a duel. Matataki has to do it; if she doesn’t, Umika wins, and she has to do what she wants.
As Umika ran, she saw a lighthouse lit up. Yuu and Haruno found out what Umika did, challenging Matataki to a duel. Yuu seems happy that Umika dared to confront Matataki. The question is, can they win the plastic bottle rocket competition? Of course, Haruno has a surprise as she shows a key. I wonder what it is or if they can win against Matataki. We’ll see next time.
