The school is hosting a marathon much to the delight of Jun and Tomo, who are fired up and ready to go. The pair leave everyone behind and soar into the lead, until Tomo suddenly collapses due to her cold catching up to her. Jun carries her on his back and sprints back to school to get her checked out in the nurse’s office. Not only does he get her back the quickest he can, but he also finishes the marathon in first place.
When they were younger, Jun let Tomo borrow his handheld game console until he caught up to her in terms of strength. When that day came, they agreed that Tomo would return it to him. Jun visits Tomo at her house as she gets over her cold. She returns his game console to him, expressing how she feels he’s on the same level as her now. Jun is happy with this, telling her that he thinks this is the best way they can be.
Jun and Tomo’s Past
More of Jun and Tomo’s past is revealed, starting with Jun distancing himself from Tomo. He overheard Tomo talking with a few of her female classmates about whether he and Tomo are dating, Tomo rejected these claims. Jun distanced himself from Tomo for a whole year to avoid troubling her with such rumours. This upset Tomo, as she was confused as to why Jun has been talking to her less. Jun decides that the best way forward is to get a girlfriend that understands his situation with Tomo, which led him to Misuzu – and so their brief, fabricated romance begun.
I Should’ve Realised Sooner…
The final scene of this episode shows Jun and Tomo heading to school, where Jun gets a good look at Tomo in all her beauty. He asks himself if she’d always been this cute, and why he’s only just noticing now. Another great scene!
