Summary: (from shows up at Katsuko-sensei's office and reports on his worry about Soubi's behavior. He reports following Soubi, as Soubi followed Ritsuka, Yuiko, Yayoi, and Hitomi-sensei on a trip to Yokohama. They went to an amusement park, and it appeared that Ritsuka was kissing Yuiko in the ferris wheel car. Soubi runs over to take him on the ferris wheel himself, and Ritsuka gets furious that he's even there. Next we hear the tale from Hitomi's point of view. Her whole worry is that she's seeing Soubi everywhere. When they went to Chinatown (which isn't far from the amusement park in Yokohama) Soubi was finally nice to her and she was happy. At last we get the tale from Ritsuka's perspective. It turns out he and Yuiko were just trying to catch a butterfly, and she stumbled. Later, when they rode the boat to Chinatown, Kio told Ritsuka that he hadn't liked Seimei's effect on Soubi, but that Ritsuka seemed to be good for him. In Chinatown, Ritsuka had such a good time with everyone that he forgot to take pictures. He finally learned how to accept being liked, and liking others.

Review: The end of this episode reminded me heavily of the last two episodes of Evangelion (non-movie versions), where Shinji learns to accept himself and the affection of others. It just really struck me hard there. There's an alternate version of this story for the first anime drama album with Breathless and an onsen instead of just Yokohama, but I rather like this one better. I like how Ritsuka's therapy is finally working. One more episode left~!
