Re: Episode 8
I must say, the "random movie/book/TV show/video game that just happens to mirror what's going on in the lives of the main characters" is one of the most annoyingly contrived tropes to ever exist. Doubly so when it was as blatant as it was in this episode.
That said, I am interested in what happened with Ai and Eita back in kindergarten. She clearly holds some resentment towards Chiwa for being the childhood friend she could never be...
