Okay so I watched this episode way late because of spring break. I’ve been in Ireland the past week so I didn’t have any chance to watch my anime. I got back not knowing what to watch, but eventually decided on this being the first show I watch after the break.
Episode 11 was good and bad in my opinion. I’d probably describe this episode as being the most beautiful one yet. It had a sort of delicacy to it that made it seem acceptably vulnerable and innocent. This episode shows the aftermath of all the past decisions. Shin’s choosing Hiromi furthered their relationship but forced Noe into a corner. In fact, Shin hadn’t even spoken with Noe for like a week because he had been spending so much time with Hiromi. This affection towards Hiromi had been evident to Noe, but now it had probably become more on a painful truth.
Nobuse and Ai even are giving a shot at patching things up, which was surprising to me because it was Aiko who made the call to start all over. I guess she realized that Nobuse still had feelings for her and that she returned them. It’s funny because Nobuse tells Shin how Noe’s “curse” didn’t work. I laughed at that.
The whole episode revolves around Hiromi and Shin’s developing relationship, The continuation of the picture book, and eventually Noe’s running away. I’ve already mentioned Shin and Hiromi (btw they kissed; I was mad). The picture book was completed in the episode but the ending was depressing. Jibeta tried to fly and died while Raigomaru saw the whole thing, the end. I reeeeally hope he rewrites te travesty. lol he will. Lastly, Noe runs away because she is so confused and depressed leaving the episode at a hanger with Shin finally finding her by the seaside holding Jibeta.
