This horrible, horrible, anime. How could it do such a thing? It gave her a (girl)friend, let them spend their summer days together, having fun, then it suddenly made her go away, back to her home? Without prior notice?
You can’t do that! Just look what you did to Renchon!! (´；д；`)
This was very, very, effective. We have a character here who doesn’t show much facial expressions. Ninety percent of the time we have her with this stoic face with a adorable deadpan voice to go with it. So when she was told her (girl)friend had to suddenly go back home, this face was enough to express what she was feeling.
However stoic it may be, it was still effective in showing what she was feeling. We could tell how sad she was without having her show it on her face. AND IT LASTED MORE THAN FIFTEEN SECONDS! It was painful to watch… so when suddenly this happened
I lost it, it got me. That wasn’t fair… it cheated! (´；д；`)
I was already feeling for Renchon, so seeing her cry was an extra punch to my feels.
It was near the end of the episode too… I feared it would end like that and leave me with a sour feeling for the rest of the day. Thank god that didn’t happen
She’ll get to see her (girl)friend again, but they are pen pals for now
