Would the show be able to top the heart pounding scene from last time? Let’s find out.
Alien X Imouto kicked off the episode.
We really began with Adachi getting Shimamura to call her. The first highlight was Shimamura remembering her favorite pillows. Adachi reacted exactly how fans would expect. Adachi just wanted to talk to her and wish her a Happy New Year. While Shimamura was pensive as always Adachi had another emotional dilemma…
How many “Words cannot do this scene justice” moments have we had on this show thus far? I THINK some teenage lesbians can relate to Adachi. Freakin’ legend already.
The struggles continued after Winter break as the two were assigned different seats, denying her the pleasure of gazing at Shimamura’s beauty and poorly hiding it. At least she had plenty of other chances during lunch break and P.E for example. That time Shimamura had every right to be pensive as Adachi became more distant from her than before.
Nice tan there Hino.
Eventually Adachi finally approached Shimamura. Must have had a similar struggle off-screen like in Episode 5. So she asked Shimamura out on another (not) date. This time Shimamura had a little fun at it but Adachi was very serious so she cut it out and accepted.
At least she made sure not to overdo it the second time. Baby steps Adachi.
Adachi wasn’t specific in where she wanted to take Shimamura. The only hint was something sweet. Before she found what she’s looking for Shimamura asked an important question. Adachi faced yet another dilemma and couldn’t answer.
Before the big reveal let’s enjoy another NagaHino moment, shall we? Just because she felt like it Nagafuji wanted to see if she was strong enough to princess carry Hino. She didn’t tell her why she wanted to test her strength but viewers could tell.
Adachi looking for a shop that sold heart shaped sweets and Hino asking if Nagafuji wanted chocolate reminded me what this episode was about. I forgot the preview mentioned Valentine’s Day was coming up. So she found a shop but of course couldn’t get the words out. Shimamura didn’t figure it out AT ALL but thought it was for her. This, along with Adachi’s cute hiccups nearly caused her to get an oopsie. Luckily her lewd request paid off, if you know what I mean.
More pensiveness from Shimamura as Adachi went for Silver again. This time we got an idea what may have gone through Shimamura’s mind on Christmas. Maybe, just maybe she’s slowly putting the pieces together. Unfortunately for Adachi it’s one of those 1000+ piece puzzles.
Ganbare Adachi! One day you may get to be this close with Shimamura.
Oh snap! Bombshell after the ED> It’s the shiny traitor Tarumi!
So kind of a deja vu episode but more than enough differences to stand out. Next time it’s (probably) VDay Mania BABEH along with more Tarumi!
