OMGWTFBBQ! Myself;Yourself is truly filled with more twists and turns than a washing machine in spin cycle.
Sana visits Hoshino at the hospital, bringing along flowers and a book. Hoshino jokes that it’s funny that she’s admitted to the hospital while visiting it, so it’s probably her punishment. Sana is puzzled on that, so Hoshino reveals that the anonymous letter last episode was sent by her.
Hoshino further elaborates, saying she had confessed her love towards Syuuri, whom she had nurtured all the time during middle school, one year ago, but Syuuri rejected it of course. However, Syuuri still remained good friends with her all the time, so she settled in to the role of being Syuuri’s best friend.
Yet, during the amusement park trip, Hoshino seeing Syuuri crying in front of Syuusuke triggered her jealousy back, thus she decided to make them suffer, by sending the letter. Yet, she wonders why she rushed to save Syuuri back when she was threatened, when she hates her instead. Sana replies that was Hoshino’s true self, and she couldn’t help but to do so.
Right on cue, Syuuri and Syuusuke visit. Hoshino and Sana act as if nothing has happened, until when they both decide to leave, Hoshino asks to speak with Syuuri in private, so Sana and Syuusuke wait for her in the courtyard. In the courtyard, Syuusuke asks Sana what happened with Nanaka, as she’s slowly warming up, so Sana divulges his pledge towards Nanaka to Syuusuke, who comments that’s pretty awesome. Syuuri finally heads out, crying, and hugs Syuusuke for comfort, while Sana watches uncomfortably on.
Even when running away from home… be~daa!
The second half cuts in, at the Wakatsuki home, where their father announcing that Syuuri’s leaving the next week. Syuuri confides with Syuusuke on the date and also her misgivings, but Syuusuke convinces her otherwise. They attend school the next day, and eat lunch with the rest as usual, breaking the news about Syuuri’s transfer as well, but after lunch they disappear. Sana wonders where they’ve went, and suddenly reaches a realization of their plans.
He rushes to the train station, but doesn’t make it on time to meet them, so he runs after the train, after borrowing a bicycle from Aoi’s mom, passing by. He manages to make it to the railway bridge, where he shouts something to Syuu and Syuuri. Neither both of them hears it, but Syuusuke understands the exact words Sana’s saying, as he did that before when Sana left town… that he was telling them, “No matter where you are, we’ll forever remain friends.”
We’ll always remain friends.
Oh wow. Hoshino’s dark revelations this episode totally, and fully caught me off-guard. I didn’t expect for her to be… well, so bipolar. Here I was, thinking that Mai Nakahara finally got a “sweet girl” role, but damn. DAMN. Gotta be more careful next time.
Also, sad farewell to the Wakatsuki twins, but Sana realizing it at the nick of time was fine too. A bit dramatic at the parts where he was cycling around town to catch-up with the train, though.
Next week, finally coming round back to Nanaka’s arc. Oh dear, I wonder if they’ll shock us even more with Aoi-chan. So far, she’s the only one who has remained “pure”… but I wonder how long…
