Episode 5 is the turning point of this drama series for me.
(Spoiler alert! Continue reading at your own risk.)
Seina is trying to seek love from Yuta who is trying to seek love from Maki. On the other hand, the last few scenes in particular made me think that the relationship between the two main characters is actually very deep. Their relationship may not be a romantic one but they share a special connection and they trusted each other which is why they were both angry when they thought the trust was broken.
Preview for the next episode: How will Maki react? Igarashi goes back to his parents’ house in his hometown. Toko and Maki go all the way there to find him?
