We start this episode with some school drama, following up on Rei not having enough attendance or credit to move to the next year. This section is fairly pointless except that the teacher uses the opportunity to give Rei some advice and it is a light bulb moment for Rei.
He sees the connection between what the teacher is saying and a number of situations in his life. What is even better is he works at acting on that advice leading to him joining the workshop.
Admittedly, Rei doesn’t contact the sisters yet but I think that’s because its an emotional hurdle he just isn’t ready to face but at least he is taking small steps.
Anyway, Shimada beat Gotou and is now going to the next round of the tournament and while this storyline continues it is definitely background to Rei’s progress in this episode.
March Comes in Like a Lion is available on Crunchyroll.
