Isshuukan Friends: Episode 9
First things first… A NEW SHIP! Kiryu-kun and Saki-chan have the potential to be a perfect couple. What’s great about them is that they’re relationship is slowly being revealed in the simplest ways. Take the scene in episode 9 for example, Saki-chan couldn’t reach an ingredient from the shelf and without hesitation Kiryu-kun stepped in behind her to give her a hand. On the surface Kiryu-kun is the strong-silent type, but I can’t help and think that if you dig a little deeper you’ll find something more… something enticing and loving. He’s the type that wants you to think he doesn’t care about anything, but he obviously cares about Saki-chan. In this episode Kaori-chan invites the gang over her house again for a homework session. When Saki and Kiryu-kun leave Kiryu hands Saki her summer homework packet completed. She asks why he did it and he claims he was bored, but you can tell that he did it because he cares about her.
New Ship!! The Moment of Truth
Another romantic event occurs shortly after everyone except Hase-kun leaves. They are both in Kaori-chan’s room and things escalate quickly. She falls on her back and down goes Hase-kun on top of her. She looks into his eyes, gradually brings her hand up to touch his hair, and then mom walks in. For some reason parents always walk in at the wrong time, but luckily enough Ms. Fujiyama doesn’t make a big scene about it and exits the room. Her reaction was kind of funny actually. No yelling, no protracted awkward silence, no “You’re grounded! Hase-kun get out!”… just “Oh, am I interrupting something? Sorry!”
Its a nice step forward in both relationships, and I hope they continue to flourish and become more romantic as the season goes on.
That awkward moment when your crush is on top of you and your mom walks in….
