Okay, so this has taken me forever to get around to watch because I’ve been on a Senior ski trip to Colorado during this past week. I left like right when the episode came out… How unfortunate for me.
I was really looking forward to it, but nothing much happened. Actually, this episode made me mad. I was angry with everyone (especially Shin’ichirou) because Noe wasn’t smiling. The fact that Hiromi and Jun rode off on the bike and got in a crash was pleasing; everyone saw it coming. I felt bad for Jun because he lost his bike, but oh well. Shin and Noe came up behind their accident in a taxi; Noe ran to Jun and Shin went to Hiromi. With his arms wrapped around another girl, Noe slipped became sad.
When Hiromi and Shin returned home they came back to a bit of kindness and truth. Shin’s mom took Hiromi aside to help her with her wet clothes and Shin’s dad told how Hiromi is not Shin’s sister. So we find out that Shin and Noe aren’t blood related. A doy! And now Noe is getting sad. It’s pretty obvious to see where things are going. Shin’s gunna be interested in Hiromi non-stop now. ::sigh:: I hate it.
Shin actually finds time during all this to continue his Raigomaru story book a bit, but his continuation is motivated by his current mood. It was basically depressing stuff about how Raigomaru can’t face the truth that he can’t fly and he will procrastinate before he ever takes off. Noe realizes that Shin is just talking about himself, for she knows that Shin is thinking about Hiromi again.
I’m eager to see what happens next, with Shin’s mom finally treating Hiromi kindly and Noe being sad. I feel bad for Noe because she’s desperately trying to find the feelings Shin had for her. She even dug through the snow looking for the “I like you, Noe” (blissmo was right). Also, apparently if you get in an accident then you get suspended from school for two weeks or something. I didn’t know what was up with that, but Hiromi and Jun both got suspended for their accident. It might have been more due to the fact that the accident was because they were running away from home.
