Ao Haru Ride episode 08
This whole story is just going back in forth. It’s almost like watching a random child that’s plucking leaf petals from a flower. “She loves me, she loves me not, she loves me, she loves me not…” It’s quite annoying if it goes on for too long.
So Futaba finally managed to find the courage to tell Yuuri about her feelings for Kou. I think it’s quite admirable how Yuuri dealt with the news. Sure, she was bit surprised and rather sad, but she took it very well. Besides, she doesn’t strike me as the type of character that will do anything to get what she wants. I think she’s as straight as an arrow. That is why I’d rather see her win that Futaba, but that’s obviously not going to happen. Futaba is just way too fussy and has quite a few problems, and I don’t think that their past should give her the edge, even though it obviously does.
Quite frankly, the only one that I’m actually rooting for is Shuuko-chan. So what if she has a crush on her teacher? They aren’t extremely far apart when it comes to age, so why not? Just wait until Shuuko-chan graduates and date her. Date her now if you think you can keep it quiet… I only say that because I think that Kou’s older brother is a good guy, of course.
Was there any actual progress? I don’t know. Futaba told Yuuri about her feelings for Kou and says that she’s seriously going after him now. I never thought she would literally follow the guy around town like he has honey stuck to his ass. I just hope that Kou will notice her feelings soon. It’s time that he, too, grows up a little instead of acting like a sad, attention craving child.
