[Free talk: Apparently, the Chinese scanlators changed their mind and decided to release this. According to them, ‘so that there will be a build-up of emotions before the finale’. ^^; I’ll reply to the tags and comments tomorrow..hopefully..I’m having a mild cold/flu orz]
After Shishio looks surprised to see Suzume, Tsubomi excuses herself by saying that she wants to go to the ophthalmology department. Then, she drags Yukichi along with her. Suzume is puzzled about this but Shishio tells her to let them be. He suggests that they go find a place to talk. Outside, Yukichi tells Tsubomi that he knows already so let go. She apologizes. He tells her that he is prepared to give them space to let them properly talk. Tsubomi doesn’t quite believe him. He admits that he created a very crucial reason that made them unable to be together and he is apologetic to them for this. Tsubomi comments he is doing a serious reflection on the wall so who’ll know of his feelings. Back to the two, Shishio gives Suzume a drink. She asks him about his injury. He tells her about the bottle falling down but when he went to grab it, Yukichi tried to avoid it by moving up his elbow which hit Shishio’s glasses and ends up injuring his forehead. And at that time, Yukichi is totally freaking out about a small injury. Then, Shishio asks her why she came back, could it be that she’s worried about him upon hearing that he is in the hospital.
Just when he is saying that he is teasing her, Suzume admits that it is true for what else the reason is there. He is surprised that she said it quite blunt. He tells her that wasn’t she always avoiding him. She admits that is true, because her feelings are unsettled, she doesn’t know what he wants to say and he basically rejected her yet in the end, he is saying that he likes her. So regarding what he said and her own feelings, everything, she would half-heartedly beat around the bush and deliberately do not go to ponder over it. But upon knowing that he is in the hospital, she became aware that he is still in some place in her heart that won’t disappear. In order to confirm it once again, she came here to face what’s in her heart, the most sincere feelings and his feelings. At the Okinawa hotel, Yuyuka goes to Mamura’s room and shouts that she heard that Suzume went back to Tokyo, is that true. Mamura glumly says that it is, he made her go. She asks why when isn’t today their date, and weren’t they always happy together before so why!? He tells her that even if he thought that it doesn’t matter to be that person’s substitute but, ‘someone’s subsitute’ basically do not exist and he is unable to become that. Mamura thinks that even if he always prepared himself for that time because sooner or later, it will come but then, he always prayed that it won’t come.
Back in the hospital, Shishio says that it felt that it is the first time he heard of what’s in her heart. She tells him that it is the first time she said it. He admits that when she was with him, there was no mood to say what’s in one’s heart. He starts to apologize for everything like being late for Christmas when he always wanted to see her earlier, not noticing her birthday so now, he won’t forget it throughout her life, and the first time she came to his house, he didn’t say much because actually he is nervous to death. The cultural festival, his birthday, at the aquarium and when they go home together..he always think that if this can always continue. Suzume thinks that it is the same with her. When he was aware that being with her would obstruct her life, even if it is a lie, he chose to leave her. But the moment he let her go, he became aware that he lost something very important. As an adult, saying it right now might be late. He apologizes for taking a rash action on his own and being coward. Suzume felt that her feelings at that time and his feelings are slowly overlapping. She asks him if he always like her. Recalling her confession before, he smiles and says yes. “I like you, Chunchun.”
Comment: So there, it seems that Shishio is ‘the one’. By Suzume confronting him, she heard his apologizes and reasons for it. It is nice though that he didn’t blame Yukichi over what he did. Yukichi seems to have also reflected over what he did so I guess he’ll accept those two’s relationship. As for Mamura, he knew and then, no amount of preparing for it, can cushion the pain. Since he prayed that it won’t happen, I guess it was a gamble for him that Shishio won’t appear again in her life and she would come to love him. I actually thought he is going to say that Suzume didn’t love him. ^^;; So, Suzume seems to be reviving those feelings she had for Shishio before. In a way, Shishio is lucky that she still loves him that he’ll get a chance to be with her again. Actually, for Shishio to mention all that, it makes me think that throughout the series, he kept on making mistakes and will only correct things at the end and gets the girl ^^;; Anyway, after two almost kisses, there should be a kiss in the last chapter.

Word of the day:
Apologies can be hard to make because it takes a spirit of humility to admit our mistake, which may not come naturally for us. But taking responsibility for how we were wrong in a situation can bring healing and restoration to a relationship. ~ Our Daily Bread
