The final episode of the Shizuma Gets Over Kaori arc. While it’s been a bit draggy and Yaya-less, I’ve still found it enjoyable because it was fun to see Shizuma in all her seasons especially pre-Kaori when she was light and free and during her relationship with Kaori when she was so sooo in love. Best bits were the Miyuki parts as she actively cheerleads her beloved Shizuma’s romance with Kaori.
Always fun when Tsubomi clashes with Chiyo. We need to see more styles of jammies though. I know that it’s plausible that people like to stick with their favourite bed clothes but come on! This is supposed to be a girly show, bring on the fashion parade fan service!
One of the more enjoyable scenes of this series. Shizuma lashes out quite cruelly at Miyuki for all her nagging but then unwittingly hurts her at her most vulnerable point. The strong shell crumbles in an instant.
Kaori wants Shizuma to have Freedom.
Shizuma: Hey, we can’t be lovers but you can be my Special Friend. *wink*
Miyuki: Oh, Shizuma! *sob*
Zyl: Wah lao, Miyuki, you’re easily pleased. Then again, being easily pleased is the secret of happiness.
This is just such a good metaphor for Yaya’s role in this arc – akin to background music. Things look up for her in the following episode!
