ハート・ノッカー – Heart Knocker
You know it’s going to be a good episode when it opens with a dazzling “oyahou (good morning)” from one mischievous sounding HiroC.
Poor Satou just can’t seem to get a break. After he finally succeeds in going on a “date” with the girl, she goes into a frenzy and… and?
So close, and yet… Todoroki can’t for the life of her make any sense of the bundle of emotions that has been keeping her in knots all day. She doesn’t quite understand what her feelings for him are, but knowledge that he has someone he likes has caused her quite the fair bit of distress. She didn’t dislike being hugged by him, but still isn’t quite sure what that meant and how to address it. She doesn’t want to be friends with Satou and she goes to tell him but… Satou walks out on her?!
This episode sure has its way of toying with both characters and viewers, keeping them and us hanging in mid air *le sigh*
Just when we get impression that Satou and his prolonged one-sided affection towards Todoroki might not stand the test of “how well do you know her” (he didn’t know any of the questions whatshername asked!), he proves us wrong by scoring top marks in the “how well do you know Kyouko-san quiz”. How? Because he remembers everything that Todoroki told him! Aww… can’t get any more aww than that, can it? Am totally shipping Satou and Todoroki!
In other news, Inami and Takanashi are at a similar impasse, if not even more so than Satou and Todoroki. She likes him, he now thinks she is cute. But he is bothered by his thoughts. Oh my goodness.. this gang is just full of ignorant characters!!
