Tomoya finally remembers his past with Kotomi. Kotomi recovers from depression and comes to school, where she is given her father’s suitcase, containing a teddy bear that she had asked back then. It seems the suitcase managed to float and wander around the world, to finally arrive back at Japan with miraculous timing. After coming in to terms with her parents deaths and their wishes for her, Kotomi finally recovers from the trauma. The episode ends with Tomoya and the others coming over to Kotomi’s house for a party.
A pretty wonderful ending for Kotomi’s arc, even if her story was rather weak in terms to jerking out the tears from me. The part about the suitcase traveling around the world was more funny than touching to me actually. Still, I’m happy for Kotomi and I’m so going to miss her being the main focus, but thankfully it seems she’ll be sticking around instead of disappearing :).
I think the most touching thing of Kotomi’s arc is still her quote from The Dandelion Girl, which, although rather meaningless, but if you have read the story, it becomes a very powerful quote. Not to mention it’s Noto-sama saying it out (=w=)~~.
Next week; Start of Nagisa’s arc?
