Ano Natsu de Matteru episode 09

Damn! I wanted to watch this episode last night, but it seems to have arrived later than I had expected. I have been waiting very patiently for this episode, which, if I may add, was no easy task. I am happy to say that this episode definitely met my expectations, well done!

The story continues as the group recovers from last week’s little incident with Ichika’s rescue pod. Kaito was still a little bit confused after what happened, but that’s only to be expected after what he did. The idiot actually crashed straight towards the escape pod. That kid has balls, I’ll give him that. Then again, I’m sure a lot of guys would’ve done crazy things in order to save their girl.

Anyway, Kaito realized what Ichika really was, an alien. However, he knew already for some time now, which was a little bit surprising. Just a little bit though, as Ichika already performed the craziest things in front of him. What surprised me most during this episode was that Ichika decided to come clean to everyone in the group. She told them about her situation, her planet and what happened earlier. Everyone was a little shocked at first, but nothing really changed in the end, she was still one of ‘them’.

Not much changed after that. Hell, Ichika was the only one who changed. She became very distant after she told everyone the truth. She was under the impression that she had to leave, which is why she kept avoiding Kaito. That is no way to treat your ‘special’ friend. He already knew that she was different, so what’s the problem here? It took Kanna-chan’s brave confrontation to make it clear to her that she did have a choice. A choice to leave or to stay, it was entirely up to her. Keep in mind that this was very brave of Kanna, seeing as she has very strong feelings for Kaito. It takes a lot of willpower and courage to ask your love rival to stay.

A lot of things had happened. Ichika’s secret became known amongst the group, everyone’s feelings have become very clear to one another and things are reaching a conclusion. Ichika finally decided to step up and express her feelings towards Kaito. That’s when Kaito stopped her and went first. Finally! No interruptions, no waiting, no pointless funny business, no… Just a beautiful and long-awaited kiss between two lovebirds!

This was definitely an episode to remember. I enjoyed every minute of it. The drama, the comedy, the romance… It was all great! I can’t wait to see what happens next between Kanna, Ichika and Kaito. I’m not sure what’s going to happen between Tetsurou, Kanna and Mio either. Mio still likes Tetsurou, but Tetsurou still likes Kanna. I guess we’ll have to watch how yet another complicated love triangle unfolds in Ano Natsu de Matteru!
