Takuya has a dream where his father tells him to watch over Ayumi, but when he gets there she’s already committed suicide! At least it was just a dream…
Dirtied White Skin
The dream felt so real that Takuya raced into Ayumi’s room upon waking to find her bathing. Flustered, he left her alone and returned to the living room. He answered the phone only to get into an argument with Toyotomi before handing the call over to Ayumi. He heads into school and bumps into Mio, but she’s just found out that her father, the mayor is sending her to America to study.
Kaori meets Takuya at the school and takes him to the roof to discuss some things. He ditches her, running to class only to then try to skip out on that too. Eriko gives the class a pop-quiz, but the intercom calls Takuya to the office. The call is from Geotech’s legal team wanting to know where Ayumi is because she could be in a lot of trouble.
Takuya rushes home to find Toyotomi putting the moves on Ayumi. He throws him across the room only for Ayumi to apologize and tell Takuya to leave. Unable to believe what he’s seeing, he goes to a cafe where Kaori appears and makes him a proposal. When he discovers what’s going on Takuya races home, but nothing will prepare him for what he will find!
This series just took a very dark turn and it was incredible. I am honestly flabbergasted. Seriously, if there is anyone out there that still dismisses this series because it has a minor amount of fan-service and ecchi content then they are fooling themselves. This series is excellent. It is far cleverer and more subtle than I ever imagined. Be sure to check back for the next episode review because I think it’s about to get even better!
