This weeks episode was a roller coaster of emotion. While last time, the episode highlighted Hinata’s feelings, this time the show focuses on Shota and Pitaro. With Ririka back, Shota is scared Pitaro will go back with her.
The show started off with Shindo taking Ayukawa to buy her an engagement. He booked the whole damn shop so she could buy one peacefully! Damn! But I still don’t think he genuinely likes Ayukawa the way he says he does. I don’t trust that guy! While Ayukawa is busy showing off her big and sparkly ring in the office, while Shota hasn’t told anything to Pitaro and does not know how to tell him about Ririka.
As Shota’s friends talk about how evil Ririka is, Ayukawa tells Shota that he should go to New York with her and Pitaro (WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU WOMAN!? Can’t you see his madly in love with you?). I bet that hurt Shota a lot. Poor him. But apparently Ririka isn’t that bad as Shota’s gang of stay home fathers said she was. Still I can’t like someone who would leave their children to pursue their dreams.
Pitaro feels like his father is hiding something from him and shuns Shota for a while. This angers Ayukawa and she gives a piece of her mind to Shota. Shota calls Ririka that if it was a few month ago, he would have agreed to go with her but now there is someone he likes even though that person does not return his feelings (that what he thinks). After a heart wrenching conversation with Pitaro, Shota wants Pitaro to decide and Pitaro says he wants to stay with his dad (awww). So Pitaro wishes his mother farewell and Ririka leaves for the US again but not without telling Ayukawa to take care of Shota. On the other side Shindo is throwing a lunch in the celebration of Ayukawa and his engagement but…… she ditches it! (BOO YEAH!) Well not intentionally but Shota gets himself drunk in the middle of the day because he feels he manipulated Pitaro to stay with him. The episode ends with Ayukawa comforting Shota while he cries.
As much as Shota is a very sensitive and kindhearted guy, it kind of really annoys me at times. I don’t know what he’d do if Ayukawa wasn’t there yell at him and made him think of himself for once. This episode was very emotional compared to the past episodes. But the relationship between Ayukawa and Shota has definitely blossomed even more. I wonder how the next episode will go?
