うそつき – Liar
Lots of things happened this episode. Lots. But before any of that, I kind of feel like Tsubaki deserves an obligatory mention. Solely due to the reason that ten entire minutes of this episode was devoted to her on again off again maybe there may not maybe only during the day time or hey maybe just when the moon is out denial towards her very real, very not non-existent feelings for Kousei. I guess senpai breaking up with her (did he really find a girl he was interested in now?) really was that push that she needed to finally face her feelings. When you are constantly thinking about someone, feeling conflicted because of that someone, depressed that said someone might be moving far far away, harbouring feelings of animosity towards the person who might well be the reason for causing said someone to move away, then chances are, you kinda like said someone. But ah well, I guess when you’ve grown so accustomed to that sense of familiarity, comfort is the last thing you’d want to relinquish. And that is probably why Tsubaki is constantly battling with her feelings. However, it does seem as if she has come to accept that she does indeed have feelings for Kousei, and that they may remain unrequited. Tsubaki’s tears (in the moon light no less, way too add on the drama KimiUso staff) were evidence of her insecurity.
With the Tsubaki chapter done and dusted, let’s move on to yet another character that seems obsessed with our main character. This episode saw the introduction of Nagi, who is every bit the token loli of this series. Why even go there? Well, she’s adorable and can play the piano so let’s just leave it at that. (Oh dear, I guess Black Bullet’s trained me well, hasn’t it? Lol.) The question is, why the introduction of yet another pianist so late in the game? Seeing as Seto has decided Kousei would be Nagi’s teacher, it would appear that she’s one of the key players in bringing Kousei “back”. But I am sure there’s more to it than just that.
Finally, it’s time to address the noooooo ＜(。_。)＞ Kaori’s condition is definitely deteriorating (amazing distress from Taneda Risa). And Kousei, oh Kousei, why can’t you just pluck up the courage to visit her? Just like Tsubaki, he is shutting himself out, giving the excuse that Kaori has Watari. Unlike Tsubaki though, Kousei is afraid that he might once again experience losing someone dear to him. And that is why this series is just so painful. I am pretty certain most people are convinced that Kaori is going to die (at least I am convinced!). So why is Kousei wasting precious time that he could get to spend with her? Kaori really is not going to be around much longer, so this impatient viewer has been sighing to no end that Kousei is still avoiding Kaori. Step up boy, you already know you like her, so just bring her the canelé already!
