How does he keep barrelling into girls in wide-open spaces?
At least they didn’t make the terrible cliffhanger from last week any worse by dragging things out. It did make Chisato become ultra-clingy, which was a little weird as Yuuki continued to go about his usual process of looking at various objects and narrating what he was seeing with a girl hanging off his arm the entire time. It also seems like something that either Satsuki or Hazuki would at least note after having their own big spat over him an episode or two ago. They didn’t do a bad job with them having it out finally although him throwing her across the room was probably a bit much, and the montage afterward was just inane. I have literally no idea what it was trying to show. Still, it was nice to see both her trying to change to be what he was asking for and him being aware of his fault in it too.
The stuff with Michiru that ate up most of the second half couldn’t interest me less at this point. She’s been a complete non-entity in the show and messing around with her in the eleventh hour isn’t going to win any points from me. Especially if they’re going to ramp up the already poorly-done intrigue aspects to a truly ridiculous level. I’m not entirely certain why they needed to knock him out there. Or how they got an unconscious body OUT of the hospital, unless the creepy auditorium/soundproof interrogation chamber was part of the hospital. And then they still do nothing with it besides infodump over slow pans. Thrilling.
