With everyone preparing for the exhibition, Maon says she wants to try to do a recital at the inn on Osaki-shimojima. However, Maon is having trouble writing her own story, which just gets worse when everyone keeps telling her how excited they are to see the recital. Once they get to the inn, Maon and friends find out so many people have come to see it that they had to move it to the Virgo, the theater that Maon has always dreamed of performing at. However, Maon still hasn’t come up with an ending, but decides to do the recital anyway, and is able to finish it – an allegory about Maon’s own experiences – with the urging of her friends.
I don't always say no to Maon, but when I do...oh who am I kidding. I can never say no to more Maon
Another Maon episode, yay! This time Maon tries to add to her myriad of talents by wanting to do a recital of a story that she’s written. It’s nice to see Maon, who probably at the start of the series would never have even dreamed of doing such a recital, being able to do one in front of so many people. If there is any character that has developed more during this series, it’s probably Maon.
It’s hard to say if this is the best episode so far, because there have been so many good episodes, but this has to be up there, I think. I’m sad that the next episode will be the last one. This has been such an enjoyable series to watch.
Aoi loses her stuffed bear that Hiroomi helped get her at the mall, but it ends up Jun found it and threw it back up into her room, Mitsuki then shows up, and Jun tells her that as long as she shows up, Yachiyo won’t be able to make friends. She then challenges her on liking Yachiyo, and he says he does. Yachiyo overhears them, but only part of it and is confused about it means and ends up being worried about Jun for a while. Jun finally puts her mind at ease and decides to pressure himself to “try harder” due to advice from Poplar
Poplar: Queen of being cute without necessarily being blobby-eyed moe
This time we get a Jun episode, which is good because, he’s probably my favorite male character in the show. Unfortunately, I’m not sure all that much happened. He and Mitsuki had a run in, and then he teased me by making me think he might actually confess, but all he did was try to put Yachiyo’s mind at ease and go back to the way things were. I suppose him deciding to pressure himself to try harder is at least a step in the right direction at least.
Otherwise, this episode was mainly the same ole same ole. There was some Nazuna, which I never object to, but it wasn’t anything overly exciting. Meanwhile, Hiroomi must have a thing for getting beaten up by Jun since he always provokes him.
