Well, that’s quite the development. Like I said last week, it has to be something pretty big to force Kaoru’s confession to come out so quickly. I was shocked that Kaoru was able to stop Sentarou from leaving before his father showed up, which blindsided me so that I wouldn’t expect the motorcycle accident. Just wishful thinking to hope that the festival could go off without a hitch, I suppose.
It’s an interesting turn of events, but what happens now? I mean, of course Kaoru has to go searching for Sentarou, but where could he be? I wonder if Jun and Yurika will come back into play when he does go looking. It still feels weird that their story just kinda ended and they disappeared into the sunset. That scene with Ritsuko has me a little worried. When Kaoru says that he won’t leave her, does that foreshadow a situation where he won’t be able to go back after finding Sentarou? Or am I worrying too much?
