Sakurako confronts Himawari and starts crying over her spending time with Chinatsu. Himawari presents her with a scarf and chocolates, adding they would continue to walk home together. Chitose eats her chocolate from Akano and turns into the monster again. Akari receives chocolate from her sister.

Analysis:

This was a Himawari and Sakurako episode. It shows how Sakurako is jealous of Himawari spending time away from her with other people. Not much to comment on this relationship really, but it is that old love-hate type relationship. Chinatsu shows that when she puts effort into things, they turn bad. However the girls can’t tell her this in case of upsetting her. The highlight during this episode is that we catch a glimpse of Akari’s sister. From past episodes, we have seen her to be really obsessed with Akari. I hope we get a chance to see her in an episode. Also I hope to see Kaede and Mari back soon, I wonder who would get the screen time first?
