God… he really is a stalker. I don’t really know whether to be happy or to be scared with him, but well, he did it with good intentions.
So, for the Mayama x Rika fans, this is _the_ episode. Finally, Mayama makes his move to Rika and confronts her about her intentions to die after completing all of Harada’s projects. Hopefully, he did made Rika change her mind for real (she could’ve faked the email, since ol’ Mayama revealed his stalker self :), and I hope for a good ending between those two.
Rika’s past is revealed a little here, like how she had a dog, and she might’ve probably suffered as a child, based on what Harada says(or it’s a mistranslation). It’s only a small assumption though, and I might probably be wrong.
Hanamoto-sensei’s past is also told a little as well, basically touching on why Moon River became Rika’s favourite song, and how he and Rika dealt with Harada’s death. It is quite correct that he was something like a third wheel in their group and I was quite shocked at his revelation that he almost tried to push Rika off a building, explaining why they rarely see each other.
Next, we jump back to Yamada and Nomiya again. It seems that J.C. Staff will be resolving all the threads with this 13 episodes.
