So, now that Hayami and Hinata made up, it’s time for Yui’s turn.
Despite my expectations for it to be a boring episode, it was actually quite an important one, since it reveals the reason of why Hayami is despised by the villagers. It turns out her family were doctors and they extorted a lot of money from the villagers, causing them to be hated. Yui’s grandfather died indirectly because of this, as the family couldn’t afford the medical fees for his illness. Yui, being pretty close to her grandfather, hated the Kohinata family ever since.
That said, this episode has Yui picking up fights with Hayami and losing much, to Yui’s vexation. Yui storms off, gets lost in the mountains and she’s saved by Hayami, at where the Kohinata house used to stand. Yui starts getting angry at her and shouts out her feelings, Hayami responds with, “It’s my responsibility to receive your hatred, since I have nothing left to return back to you.” (note: abbreviated). This somewhat patches up the relationship between them, although they still have that rivalry thing going on, especially now that Hayami is wearing twintails as well.
Argh, Hayami, why do you have to change to twintails so fast? I prefer the long hair, since it differentiates you better than the twin tails :P. Well, it was kinda hilarious seeing her and Yui actually ordering the same dessert and choosing the same dress. Hayami has a pretty deadly punch though….
