A day out together…
… and the sad revelation of Makoto’s real identity….
So.. the secret’s out. Makoto is actually the human form taken on by a fox that Yuuichi saved 10 years ago. Meeting up with Mishio Amano, thanks to a hint from Mai, Yuiichi is told that Makoto is not human, which sparks back his memories from 10 years ago when he had a crush on the real Sawatari Makoto and the only living thing who knew about it is the fox cub he saved then and released later.
Apparently knowing that he comes back, the fox exchanges its life and energy for a miracle to happen, which is to see him again, only this time in human form, much like the story of the crane wife, only with the fact that Makoto doesn’t have long to live, giving away her life for the short sparkle of this miracle to happen.
…. and that is why Kanon is awesome T.T . I am genuinly touched by the Tomokazu Sugita version of Yuiichi, and he is much more mature and fun than the old one. Oh dear… I think I’ll need a box of tissues ready next week.
