Suzuka Episode 6
Well with an episode title like "Kokuhaku" (confession), what do you think's gonna happen? =)
Anyways, Yamato struggles with wanting to ask Suzuka out on their day off from school. He ends up getting tickets to an amusement park, but they get destroyed... Turns out Suzuka has the same tickets and he indirectly invites himself to go with her. She seems pretty excited about going (in her own way), so Yamato looks forward to their day together.
The next day is pouring down rain, but Yamato and Suzuka find some indoor rides to go on and seem to have a pretty good time. At the end of the day it stops raining and they go to watch the parade and Suzuka grabs his hand and keeps holding on to it throughout the parade... He struggles with his feelings of wanting things to continue to be friendly and happy between them and his inward desire to have more. He ends up confessing, which at first she thinks is a joke, but Yamato confirms that he really feels that way about her. Suzuka has an obvious inward struggle, but ends up rejecting him in the nicest way possible and apologizing.
They walk home in awkward silence and go back to their rooms, Yamato finding Yasunobu in his apparently unlocked apartment. Yamato lays down, and complains about his day, but his friend leaves before he gets to the bad part and throws him some tissues. Meanwhile, Suzuka sits in her dark room in front of the tv cuddling her stuffed frog. Yamato finds himself sobbing uncontrollably and wondering why...
Interesting that Yamato confessed to Suzuka so quickly, but he definetly has been having an inward struggle ever since he first realized he liked her so it was inevitable. I suppose the rest of the show will be Suzuka's struggle with her feelings and coming to terms with her past and stuff like that. Should be interesting... =)
