Futaba and Kou move ever closer.
What They Say:
At the end of her first year of high school, the main heroine, Futaba suddenly has a chance encounter with her first love, Tanaka Kou. Three years ago, he transferred schools before she was able to say how she felt about him. After meeting each other again, Futaba realizes that he has gone through many changes. He acts more cool and even had his last name changed to Mabuchi. Gradually the two rekindle their love while piecing together what had happened in the time that they were apart.
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
Kou was being a little forceful in this episode, wasn’t he? They’re about as bad as Haru in My Little Monster, whose antics are often played as comedy. But not quite as bad as Yamato in Say “I love you”., so seemed domineering in that early episode. But no, he’s still kind of bad saying that he is Futaba’s boyfriend. It was to get out of that situation, but the way it was set up was…bothersome? Not so much that it ruined the enjoyment of the show, though.
