I won’t spend hardly any time writing about this because it will take me some time to get over my “Shin-didn’t-choose-Noe” mood. In short, Noe knows Shin doesn’t like her, Nobuse and Ai break up, Ai says that she is over Shin, and Hiromi moves out which motivates Shin to chase her down on a bike.
I don’t wanna talk about this episode much more other than: Noe is incredibly cute when she eats, claps, and descends stairs. Shin’ichirou is also a shotty cyclist and if you have seen Over Drive you will know that Shinozaki is at least 10 times the man Shin’ichirou is.
Shin better be Noe’s bestest most dear friend after all this! I will kill if she is put out of the picture completely!
