It must be a scary feeling for Hikari to see everything change. I'm glad Chisaki and Hikari manage to reunite.

hope nothing bad happens to Hikari by the end of this show.somehow I got a bad feeling

this is one of the few shows where I can't predict the ending.

Yes.

Anyone would. Manaka is out of the picture for an unknown duration. Moving forward is also about dating other people. Miuna has a chance. If she doesn't run with it, it's her fault.

I think it would be really funny if Manaka comes back aged to 18 yo.

Well, this series isn't really about romance but about character growth.

Since Miuna's the narrator in the second half of the series, I think her character development will be the main focus, like Hikari's was in the first half. Miuna will probably be the one to convince Hikari to go save Manaka. It makes sense to me. Manaka saved Miuna's family, and Miuna will help to save Manaka and her love.

But don't mind me. This is just my take on things.

same here. really happy to see Chisaki smile & seeing Hikari again even though I'm hoping for a Chisaki x Robot-kun pairing
since they would be a VERY cute couple together.

----------------------------------------

being watching this show this weekend. finally caught up to ep.15; it's a very interesting
show. hope to see more when more episodes come out!

For me, it's clear Okada is setting Miuna to lose here, as her rival is the person who protected her new family. All that Miuna admires in Hikari, ultimately leads to Manaka.

Miuna will suffer, but she'll grow as a person because of it. That sounds like Okada to me.
I agree with you, as I said in a before Miuna is now in the the same shoes Tsumugu was until now. So there are high chances that she will freeze just protecting his smile waiting for Manaka's return, as Tsumugu did with Chisaki.

On the other hand I'd find it a bit repetitive. The brilliant thing of having different people in the same position should be to make them doing different things depend on their personalities. And even a way to show the outcome of different choices for a similar situation. Like, what if Tsumugu had forced things with Chisaki? Just saying, because it could work even having the same outcome. Depends on what the writer want to say.

But there's another thing that is not there, yet. When will Hikari say that Manaka sacrificed herself? Will he or won't? The only one who get a hint about that it is Tsumugu and he is even the most probable person Hikari will tell it, until maybe Kaname's return. So until then Miuna doesn't know about that.

Having said that, in any case I concur with your last sentence about suffer and growing. Hikari is set on Manaka. I also agree with what you said about him.

Watch an episode and decide for yourself. It's only 25 min.

Yeah I know but I can't just watch one episode of a PA show because the first impression is almost always insta-love because of visual porn. Guess I'll marathon 6-7 eps.

Marathoning up to episode 7 is actually a good idea imo. Episode 7 happens to be one of my favourite episodes.

After that you could share your impression about the characters and the story. How do you feel about them for the first time and compare it after you finished marathon it.

just me, since i love Chisaki. hope you enjoy the show.

Just don't forget Okada is here, so don't put all of your hopes on something since there are high chances of them being squashed to smithrens(if True Tears is any indication for you) .

They're earrings?! I figured they were a hair tie, although I had started wondering if they just grew out of the back of her neck and no one was saying anything....

I think those white wing-like things behind Manaka's ears are actually part of her physical make-up. They were pointed out to be gills in one of the early episodes, unless that was mistranslated. I didn't pay attention to what they were actually saying in Japanese as much, back then.

Well, user Kanon has already said it in Episode 9

Does that kind of thing exist in real life? I don't know anything about fashion.
