Let’s have the random girl who came midway along confess because there isn’t already enough drama in the mix. This anime is sure stretching this current miscommunication crisis for maximum mileage.
You know, rather than these two sitting around thinking they are both at fault and having stilted conversations that don’t address the problem but simply try to take credit for most of the blame, they could just agree to get over it. Admittedly, that would be pretty uncompelling writing but at the very least it would get us out of this pattern of misery these two have fallen into. Part of me almost agreed with Ayoda when she thought that a clean break up would be the best thing for them.
But despite all the issues and problems raised last episode, this episode does nothing to repair the situation and throws more fuel on the fire. Now when they do this in shounen anime it can lead to something being quite awesome, if overly drawn out. When you do it in shoujo anime, mostly it just has me rolling my eyes at the teen drama unfolding on screen. It doesn’t help that none of these characters remained interesting after their initial introductions as they all just kind of gravitated to ‘generic role in a high school romance’ status.

Hopefully the payoff warrants all of this angst.
Doesn’t seem likely, but hopefully it will end on a high note.
