I just finished watching ep. 18. Well, it's a sudden change of mood from the last few eps. Not that it's a bad episode.

We have always seen Shizuma as someone who is potrayed as being stronger, so it is not really a surprise to see her break down like that. Nagisa must have acted like that because she never really see the weak side of Shizuma in the first place.

Or maybe she can't take the emotional atmosphere she and Shizuma was in right at that moment.

I just watch the fansubbed episode 18 and it was a very good episode. What im worried about the most is Nagisa collapsing at the end of the episode. It didn't look like the she fainted and if you'd listen she actually sounded very sick when saying sorry to Tomo.

Could we have a similar situation where Naisga gets very sick and is near death and Shizuma's love bring her back? we'll just have to watch and find out!

Waw. Episode 18 was one hell of emotional package. It was awesome.

(This is not a question but a breathless assertion.) She had no idea how to deal with the situatinon, so that she ran away.
But it's just from Nagisa's point of view. Shizuma never stated or think that Nagisa is a replacement for Kaori. Yes, maybe Nagisa and Kaori share some similar qualities, but Nagisa is Nagisa, and Kaori is Kaori. Shizuma knows that very well so she can't replace Kaori with Nagisa.
In the end of episode, Shizuma and Kaori's photo was standing again, right? This shows Shizuma's feeling that she can't completely forget Kaori.

And the cliff scene.. And Nagisa's apologize to Tamao... oohh.. so emo..

The eighteenth episode really drove in the point that the main character is a kid. Nagisa pretty much made it clear that she is deeply hurt from the twist of events, but maybe in the future she can just focus on loving the one she has fallen for instead of just being disappointed about something going wrong. I found the drama a welcome addition, but both the main characters acting quite weird about it.

We should be careful not to overanalyze things. Rather, it was a necessity, since we haven't seen Kaori's face for sure - on the first turn Kaori's face was "blanked out" by the reflection of a light source. I'm 100% certain that having the photo "stand up" again does NOT mean that Shizuma's feelings towards Nagisa have changed. At least I don't think so.

Well, here we only have the crushed low-self-esteem girl Nagisa. There's nothing she'd have to apologize to Tamao for.

Wow BIG PLOT TWIST.

Everything was all happy (well cept for Tamao) and this episode comes and puts all the emo back in our faces!

Great episode IMO, now we'll really see how Shizuma and Nagisa will act toward eachother in school due to the awkwardness...

As for Shizuma, I'm not sure whether she thinks Nasisa is just a replacement for Kaori. But, I have a feeling that she doesn't deeply care who Nagisa is, at least so far. She was (or acted like she was) a woman chaser before Nagisa came to the school. According to the rumor Tamao referred to at the last one minute of episode 2, when Shizuma had a new girlfriend, their relationship wouldn't last more than a month. Also, Miyuki repeatedly warned Shizuma in the earlier episodes that her act could hurt Nagisa. Nagisa is not the first girl chosen to be her new girlfriend after Kaori's death.

It is true that Shizuma has become more serious than she used to be and Nagisa is now something more special for her than the others. But, what she planned to do in episode 17 and 18, which turned into failure, seemed to come mainly from her desire to be freed from the past, not from her love for Nagisa. Of course this is just my personal interpretation and I wouldn't like to blame Shizuma. She has her own reason. I feel sorry for both of them.

I think Tamao-chan has Nagisa senses in her. So she'll know if Nagisa was taken away

I dont think Nagisa ran away was because she felt she was just a replacement.

She's too nice to think like that.

Rather, she probably felt hopeless that she can't do anything for Shizuma. And that was the reason she was sad and ran away.

As for Shizuma...we dont know o.O

MORE EPS COME ON!

Shizuma just have a massive mental breakdown, like most of the people above has said. She tried to get on, but the past have caught her.
