This episode begins with Ruka stumbling upon Chizuru leaving Kazuya’s apartment. Ruka had apparently not known that they lived near one another, and so she is shocked to see this. She throws a hissy fit, demanding to know why Chizuru is so close to Kazuya.
They invite her in and try to explain the situation with Chizuru’s Grandmother and the movie they’re trying to create. Ruka is hesitant but inserts herself into the film, demanding to help work on it. She states that as Kazuya’s girlfriend, she refuses to let them work alone on the film together, so she’ll be there to help out. Kazuya and Chizuru agree. Ruka also notes that Kazuya ate Chizuru’s OmuRice, and asks him whether he liked it better than Ruka’s curry. Not knowing what to respond, he says Curry in an attempt to not upset Ruka further. Chizuru seems understanding, but still slightly bothered by this.
We see a scene of Chizuru visiting her Grandmother, who gives her fully permission to use her name and story in the GoFundMe page. The conversation shifts a bit to Chizuru’s Grandma talking about Kazuya and how good of a guy he is to want Chizuru to achieve her dream of starring in a film. Meanwhile, we see Kazuya going to meeting with some executive, who approves their GoFundMe page. He comes home and runs into Chizuru returning from her Grandmother’s hospital room, who tells him he’s a pretty good person.
Kazuya spends the next few scenes wondering how on earth to write the script for this movie. As he wanders outside his apartment, we get a pretty fanservicey scene with Yaemori Mini, who pulls him into her room.
She shows him a clip on her phone she took of Ruka and Chizuru discussing Chizuru’s rental girlfriend occupation at the beginning of the episode during the confrontation. Kazuya panics, not wanting this information public, and tells her everything that’s occured in Season 1 and 2 (basically).
Mini is shocked and says that he must really love Chizuru, and she must really love him back for this to be going on for a while year. This embarrasses Kazuya, who soon leaves the apartment, thinking there’s no way Chizuru could like him back. It’s also established that Mini will refer to Kazuya as “Shisou” — kind of like “Sensei”, meaning ‘Teacher’ or ‘Master’ — because she simply wants to.
Opinions / Analysis
Omg where’s Mami. I miss her toxic character.
Also, this series is becoming alarmingly more one-note than it has been before. I’m actually surprised at how little we’re getting in favor of fanservice instead. We have all of these distinct girls, and yet they don’t seem to do much except bicker with one another.
Oh well. I’ll still keep watching, of course.
