Takeuchi fighto! Go Takeuchi go!
Yano rot in hello! Down Yano down!
Nana, please like Takeuchi!
I think it is pretty clear why I like this episode, even though I know that my hopes will be in vain since Yano will eventually be together with Nana once again. Still, it made no difference to me because I am rooting for Takeuchi and Nana. GO!!!!!!!!
The last episode left us with Nana dumping Yano after we realized that Yano still could not forget about the old Nana. It now goes to the school scene where there is a sport competition and the boys’ team from Nana’s class won the tournament. Yano did very well but Nana avoided the whole topic about Yano completely, refusing to answer Mizu-chin’s question on why she dumped Yano. Nana noted that it had been a week since they broke up and they had not talked to each other since then. It was almost like they had turned to strangers.
She had returned all the books she borrowed from him and she did not get back the manga she loaned to him. The scene changed as Takeuchi and a friend talked about Nana, and that Nana must have been cheated or double timed, if not mentally. Takeuchi realized that Nana must be feeling bad, as he invited Nana to his house, trying to cheer her up with the dogs that he picked up a week ago. He asked whether Nana wants to keep the pets but her family hated pets. He then mentioned that there was no choice as the dog licked Nana’s face. Nana finally smiled and he told her that she’s welcome to visit the dogs anytime.
Yano then went to a party with his friend, as a girl took his phone to compare and deleted the picture of Nana in a yakata. He was very angry and stared at the girl, going into the toilet to leave a voice message to Takeuchi. The friend knew and did not say anything. As he walked out, the girl who deleted it apologized and asked if she could treat and bed him. Yano rejected, saying he “can’t do it” with someone he does not love.
Yano then went over to Takeuchi’s house at 230 am, asking whether he had the picture of Nana. He said he did not and told Yano to leave because he wanted to sleep. Takeuchi also gave warning that he might chase Nana, both in his room and on the bus going to school. When Takeuchi woke up, he realized that Yano had climbed through the window and Yano still clearly liked Nana a lot. Takeuchi did have a liking for Nana (don’t we know).
The school festival started and Nana wanted to be first as usual. Yano then gave a good suggestion to make it a disneyland theme. She then thanked him later but escaped as Yano’ gaze made her confused. Nana was also rejected by Takeuchi when she wanted to visit the dogs, even though Takeuchi mentioned she can go over even if he was not there. As school ended, Takeuchi was going out with Yano and another friend.
As Takeuchi saw Nana about to go out, carrying the bag that held the cookies and plushie for the puppies, he stopped at the last moment. As Yano stepped into the bus, he said that he already gave his last warning and love is all about timing.
Yano’s shocked glaze, as Takeuchi ran over to Nana, telling her that the plans have changed and she can visit, was classic. Takeuchi was now on a quest to capture Nana’s heart.
I am so happy that Takeuchi finally made his move. It’s about time he did it, seriously. He deserved much more than the punching bag of Yano. Yano had his issues and since he cannot fix it, he does not deserve Nana at all. The fact that Takeuchi gave him so many fricking chances and he is still a freaking hesistant bastard shows it all. Takeuchi, go strike and hit fourth base or a home run with Nana.
Yes, Nana, accept the hot hot love of Takeuchi! Oh man, the most “unbiased” judgments ever. The new arc had a bit of humor, which is good compared to the overly drama parts during the last arc, causing me to call Yamamoto a total slut. I also am delighted to see a Yano in disarray, not knowing what to do. It really shows clearly that he cares for Nana a lot, but he also cared about the ex-girlfriend a lot. He really have to resolve this before he goes into a relationship. He is not ready yet.
The next episode seemed to be Yano realizing completely what Takeuchi will be doing and he is going to kill him! Well, not literally, but Yano seems to make up his mind on what he is going to do. Great, fighto! GO TAKEUCHI GO, BEAT THE ASS OUT OF YANO PLEASE.
Honestly though, if Yano could get rid of that maze that he had built himself, he will deserve Nana. Nana needs Yano more than she needs Takeuchi…
