A sorta “break” episode from the events of last week.
Minorin attempts to reconcile with Ami~n, pretending their argument never happened in the first place. Meanwhile Taiga takes an extended break to meet her mother after she hears about her accident.
Taking advantage of her prolonged absence, Ryuji asks Kitamura to pretend that he was the one saving Taiga instead of him, and to deny of Taiga speaking anything in her half-conscious state. Kitamura begrudgingly accepts it. Taiga comes back nearing the end of the episode, and Ryuji acts as normal as he can be around her. When she mentions about her mumblings, he denies it of course.
Now the ball’s fully in Ryuji’s court to pick either his crush on Minorin or to acknowledge and accept Taiga’s feelings. Next episode should be more exciting than this one…
