No Yaya in this episode so I wouldn’t normally have a post. But given that I’m curious to hear Skane’s exposition on Tamaoism this week, here’s a seed bed for that.
Even at the remote beach house, Tamao’s presence follows the pair in the form of her sandwiches. I wonder if Shizuma wanted them eaten before they got to the house so that another physical reminder of Tamao had been dealt with?
Shizuma has a mini-breakdown after another very brief Kaori Sakuragi flashback. Tears in the rain.
Shizuma seems to treat Tamao as – at the very least – a plausible rival for Nagisa. In the anime, she was definitely annoyed by Tamao’s protective ribbon and in the manga, she tells Tamao not to touch Nagisa. Given the OP, I’m taking it for granted that Nagisa will end up with Shizuma though it will be interesting to see how this comes about.
Looks like no Yaya again next episode.
