This week’s episode definitely felt like a “calm before the storm” thing. Not only because of the actual storm brewing, but also because everything seems to have been resolved. Akira is okay with Haru and Natsuki’s family problems are taken care of. There’s also Haru attempting to say goodbye as another obvious indicator. Something’s going down.
I guess next week is when everything starts getting serious. Based on what I’ve seen, Akira will elude his former comrades and meet up with Natsuki and Yuki, who will probably be looking for a missing Haru. Judging by Haru’s comment while fishing that he can do it himself, he’ll probably face the other alien by himself (like a typical anime character trying to protect his friends). Let’s see how much I get right.
