OK, I was wrong. The arc is as much about Mei as it is about Youhei, and about what it means to be a responsible brother. Curse you, moe cosplaying hot Sanae for being such a red herring!
Because that’s what Sunohara has always been, and will be always. Especially in this episode, which kicks off a mini-arc that may yet end in actual heartbreak and drama!
Welcome back to the moe? An episode that served more like a reintroduction to all the major characters shows some subtle differences from the first season, differences that may point to a difference of approach this time around.
