I’m surprised. Despite the tantrum, I agreed with most of the things Kouko was saying. She’s correct to point out that she is still not mature enough to take responsibility for the accident (the last scene proves even more how much of a child she is). She also has a legitimate reason to wallow after the accident. The accident she caused could have very easily wiped Banri’s memories again, which would cause their relationship to disappear (following the trend left by the previous accident). Strangely enough, I can’t bash her this week.
So New Banri has decided to face his past. I guess this means he has to do something about his current feelings for Linda. That should be a fun encounter, I suppose. Maybe he’ll finally have a conversation with Ghost Banri too? I guess there’s no rush just yet. The preview looks like he’ll be spending some quality time with Kouko first. And her family? He’s already bonded with her father, I guess.
