…. which idiot in the Yoakena production team decided to give this episode to the same team that did the third episode… =.=;;;
Feena takes an extended leave from school and the Tatsuya household to deal with some administration work. Before leaving, the tense atmosphere between her and Tatsuya is quite noticable, and while she’s away, Tatsuya starts to act weirdly, screwing up in his school and part-time job, leaving some friends to speculate on what has happened to him.
After a week, Feena finally returns home for a while to get a change of clothes and bumps in to Tatsuya and Natsuki returning from school outside the house. Natsuki leaves the two lovesick birds alone. Entering home, however, there’s an extra pair of boots that belong only to the Lunar royalty and it turns out that Feena’s fiance has come to pay her a visit. Mai accidentally spills some tea on his clothes and she expects the worst, but he responds with a smile. However, only Tatsuya notices the disgusted face he makes when Mai tries to wipe off the tea from his clothes. Feena asks why he’s here and he responds that he’s here to check on how his future wife is living on Earth. After giving his greetings to Tatsuya, he takes his leave.
Later, in the Lunar embassy, Feena is practicing her kendo when Mr. Obnoxious (didn’t get his name) comes in and spars with her, defeating her easily. He tells her to stop her foolish plans for peaceful coexistance with the Earth and let him protect her. He then walks out, leaving Feena depressed. Back home, Tatsuya is also feeling extremely irritated and Natsuki tells him that he’s feeling that because he loves Feena. Realising his true feelings, he runs to the Lunar Embassy and meets Karen at the door, who warns him that Feena’s fiance is a major anti-Earth figure.
Tatsuya shows his determination to share Feena’s path and her dreams to Karen, who tells him to look for Feena at the park bench where they first met as kids. Upon reaching there, Feena is suprised to see him there. Feena tries to avoid Tatsuya but he tells Feena not to run away and he’s decided to share her burden and fight alongside her, confessing his love for Feena.
Things are moving fast now, and Tatsuya has confessed to Feena. I’m impressed with him, really, he does show backbone when needed to. This episode however was marked by really bad art for the second half, which really annoyed me. Somehow, all the facial proportions were screwed up badly, which is quite visible in the shot above… even more when I was watching the HD raw from moyism for this :X. Hopefully the better team will be in for the next episode, as apart from the bad art, Yoakena doesn’t disappoint much.
