[click image to enlarge]
Picking off from where last episode left off.
Nowaki had asked Hiro to meet him outside the family restaurant where they usually hang out at.
This time, Hiroki is dead set on making it known to Nokaki that it is over between them, however, for some reason he ended up arriving an hour earlier than the appointed time. And so he starts to wait for him while thinking about things.
Nowaki on the other hand is having bad luck. The doctor that had looked after Nowaki while he was in the States has decided to come down for a visit. As such, Nowaki was dragged by his professor to pick the doctor up at the airport. And the bad luck continues. The arrival of the flight was delayed and Nowaki was running late as it was. Finally when he decided that he had to leave the plane of the doctor lands and he ends up having to stay.
While Hiroki is waiting patiently, his thoughts are starting to get more and more depressing. He attempts to call Nowaki but all he got was line that could not be reached. Why? Nowaki was in the subway when Hiroki called.
By 9pm, Hiroki is getting tired of waiting and it suddenly starts to rain. This is when we see a defeated Hiroki walking away in the rain thinking that the absence of Nowaki was Nowaki’s answer to their relationship. Of course like in all good romance stories, you have to have that moment. The moment where they were so close yet so far. Just as Hiroki walks away in the rain, Nowaki comes running and he passes him without knowing it.
Hiroki instead of going back home decides upon going back to school, this is where he bumps into the Professor that he worked with. And all of a sudden Professor Miyagi starts to hug him from behind and leans in for a kiss.
This is where the climax of the episode is. Just as Miyagi is about to kiss Hiro, Nowaki comes charging in and pins Miyagi to the wall and hits Miyagi. This is probably the first time we have seen such an agitated Nowaki.
Hiro defends Miyagi and gets dragged away by Nowaki to the library.
This is where Nowaki spills his guts about how he felt. How he felt like he could not compare to Hiro and that there always existed the age gap between them. He felt inferior to Hiro and wanted to work hard to catch up to Hiro and that was why he went for the exchange in the States. When he came back certain of himself, he finds out that Hiro has risen onces again and has became the assistant professor thus widening the gap between them.
This is the first time Hiro is hearing all of this and he gets emotional and starts to cry while confessing his love for Nowaki.
They had ‘fun’ in the library and Nowaki ends up moving in with Hiro.
During the moving in, Hiro finds a bag containing letters written to him by Nowaki but never sent. Nowaki tells him about how he felt like sending the letters but could not because he knew that if he did he would have wanted to go back home (awww…how sweet). Hiro gets all embarrass and cute saying that he wants to keep all the letters, of course Nowaki gets all shy and says that he wanted to throw the letters away. And they argue (in a cute way). ^^
Mini-ep after ED song
When did Nowaki told Hiro about leaving for the US? This is explained. During one of their dates Nowaki brought it up saying that he was undecided as to whether he should go for the program and Hiro said that if it were him he would go. And Nowaki made up his mind then and there. Hiro? He totally forgot about it because he was so busy with his thesis and work. =_=” LOL

I like the starting picture for this week~ the cute panda with the black BG! ^.^
It was a sweet ep towards the end. The first part was pretty sad and painful to watch with the hit and miss moments between them. Nowaki just has the worst luck and timing sometimes.
But the scene when Nowaki gets angry is really hot. You can see why Nowaki is the “guy” in the relationship.
The animation was so nice. It was the usual junjou style for there is something about that style that can get you all emotional and affected. When the characters interact there is this chemistry that happens between them.
Does anyone wonder why Miyagi never told Hiro about the message that Nowki had left behind during the call?
The empty look that Hiro had in his eyes was probably the most heart breaking scene in the episode. The defeated and lost look. It is obvious how much he still loved Nowaki.
Professor Miyagi is… funny. lol. He bullies Hiro all the time. I can’t wait to see Terrorist (though i don’t really like it). I just want to see Miyagi get Terrorized by Shinobu.
I miss MIsaki X Usami pair!! I cant wait for something more lighthearted. But I love the second couple too, it is not as light hearted as the Usaki pair but the seriousness has a certain charm to it as well.
I wonder how others found this episode? Was it too melodramatic? Or was it just the sweetest? ^^
I vote for sweet!
