Nanaka’s parents. Father reminds me of Syuusuke.
Guess what. I totally forgot to watch this episode until now. orz.
That surely was traumatic.
We finally get to know the reason of Nanaka’s trauma. Her parents and violin teacher used to be good friends, but her violin teacher, revealed on his deathbed to Nanaka’s father that Nanaka was actually his child. Unable to accept the fact, Nanaka’s father killed his wife and set fire to the house himself, so the long haired man we saw was actually Nanaka’s father.
Knowing this, Sana brings Nanaka back home, but Nanaka starts to withdraw into her room, refusing to meet anyone, even Sana. Despite so, Sana decides to come and visit her everyday. Finally, one day, Sana is alone with Nanaka in her house, and he tries to talk to her, but notices her room is unlocked and the bath is running. Sana initially thinks she’s bathing, but after a while, he starts to suspect something wrong, and breaks in to the bathroom, finding Nanaka in the bath with her wrists slit. Flashbacks of his past appear, but he manages to save Nanaka just in time.
After Nanaka is back home, Sana reveals that he also tried to commit suicide back in middle school, as he was bullied badly by his schoolmates. He was saved but the trauma left a big scar in him, so he decided to return to his home town in hopes of regaining his past self. He tells Nanaka that he was angry when he found out he was saved, but now, he’s afraid that if he had died, he couldn’t have saved Nanaka.
Time jumps 10 years, and everyone has grown up, even Hinako who has a boyfriend now, but her chest size remains the same nevertheless LOL. Everyone is gathering at the nature park that Syuuri wanted to save, which is revealed that Asami was the one who campaigned for the nature park to stay, thanks to Aoi-chan, with noticeably longer hair now, yet her Chiyo voice remains the same… ahaha~. Even the Wakatsuki twins are back as well, but we never get a full shot of them.
Adult Hinako looks just the same.
Aoi and Asami.
Dear god, why all the secrecy for the twins.
Yuzuki = Kuroi-sensei at some parts XD
At the nature park, Nanaka is about to perform her violin on stage when Sana decides to propose to her. The violin recital starts, and Yuzuki-sensei is still handing out candy as usual, but she’s still single and laments that another student has overtook her again, XD. Nanaka plays the piece she composed back then at Sana’s farewell party, now completed and names it “Myself;Yourself”.
Well, looks like my theory was half-right, and Nanaka’s mom DID had a relationship with the violin teacher, but god damn, I didn’t expect Nanaka to be actually their child as well. Also, it turns out that long hair must run in the Yatsushiro family, thus nicely explaining the long-haired guy. Haha.
Sana’s dirty little secret wasn’t too hard to guess though, and most people already probably guessed what happened a long time ago. Man, he should’ve realized faster that Nanaka was going to commit suicide. Wouldn’t it be strange for Nanaka, who’s trying to avoid seeing anyone, actually go take a bath when Sana’s at her home as well. Well, all’s well ends well.
That said, they managed to tie all the ends up nicely towards the end, when it seemed earlier on that they would mess up a few plot threads. I’m glad of that, and also, LOL at the 10 year jump. I kinda didn’t believe that Sana wasn’t married yet to Nanaka after 10 years, wonder what made him wait for 10 years. It’s always fun to see Hinako as well, and it’s damn ironic she’s now going out with a guy 5 years younger, in contrast to her falling in love with Syuusuke earlier on. Aoi… well, thankfully she remains rather unchanged, and it’s good to see Asami is still around as well, making amends to Syuuri in her own way. And damn, why all the secrecy for the Wakatsuki twins… did they actually get married to each other or something? Probably won’t know until the game comes out :P.
In closure, Myself;Yourself has been an okay show, even if it seemed a bit lost on progressing the plot during the middle of the series, with all the nonsense fillers here and there. The many revelations of the past few episodes have pretty much redeemed it up a bit, mostly in terms of providing us with enough shock drama especially episode 11 which was chockful of it. It’s been a good show, yet not too outstanding enough to warrant any special mention.
