Is it really that uncommon for Japanese boys and girls to have lunch together at school? Now that this series has mentioned it, the only time when I recall that characters, apart from lovers had a school casual school lunch with the opposite sex was in xxxHolic.
In any case, this was a rather quiet episode. The less amazing animation seems to back up my view. At least we now know that Noe is jealous too, though at least she tries to relief it in quite a different way from usual: by having lunch with Hiromi. Shinichiro also makes a rather stupid move towards Harumi, when he basically mentions how Noe’s brother said that she was cute. Aiko, meanwhile, finally takes action and prevents Shinichiro from answering to Miyokichi, in order to spend more time together. Seriously, that girl is diging her own grave.
And that’s basically all that happened. Like I said, it was a pretty quiet episode. I liked how the creators showed one scene two times, from the perspective of different characters, like Tokyo Marble Chocolate did before, and Seraphim Call took to the extreme.
