Misae’s mini-arc ends. Ahh~ it was too short.
It turns out that it was a flashback shown by Shima to Tomoya, not the other way round, so my misconceptions are cleared.
If anything, the arc ended a bit too fast for me to feel emotionally attached to the story, so when it ended, I was left a bit dry, hoping the “dream” would’ve lasted longer but it seems even KyoAni has a schedule to stick through. A bit of small consolation comes in the form of trap Shima… but I wished they would’ve spent the time forming a much more deeper bond between the viewers and the characters.
Hillarious, but wasted the time a bit too much.
Still, I felt touched when Tomoya conveys the words that Shima wanted to tell Misae, thereby giving Misae a closure… no, a sense of it rather, to her relationship with Shima. At least she now knows that he’ll be with her always, and she can finally move forward from it. Or, at least, that’s what I felt from watching this episode.
The next episode will finally center on Yukine, and I have a somewhat high expectations of it, thanks to Guncannon’s worshiping of her.
