The next day Souhei and Hayato are walking to school and Souhel tells him that he found Miku yesterday and Hayato asks if she said anything and Souhei flashes back to Miku telling him that she wanted to see his face. Souhei tells Hayato that she didn’t say anything. Souhei runs into Miyuki and she asks him if something happened because he didn’t reply to her text and that it was unusual for him not to reply. Souhei explains that Miku didn’t come home and it caused a fuss, Miyuki grills him a bit asking if he searched for her and if he was the one who found her and he says yes. Then Miyuki says its good that nothing happened to Miku and she wonders if anything happened between Miku and Hayato yesterday because it looked like it was going well.

Kiyoka complains that she wasn’t able to be a good teacher, but Arata runs over to her and says its valuable just to have her here. Then Souhei comes home with Hayato, and says Hayato is here to teach physics because Naoharu is good at math and science but bad with physics so he called Souhei who then suggested Hayato. Souhei and Hayato are walking in the house and Hayato says he is bad at teaching others Souhei says he will be fine then Hayato grabs him and says don’t run away.

Souhei says that its his first time in Miku’s room and she says don’t look too much. Souhei pulls down a figurine and says he has the same one its cute but ugly and they both say they couldn’t throw it away. Then Souhei says that Hayato has some weird figurine at his house he didn’t know if it was a fish or a bird then Hayato says oh the dog and Miku laughs. Hayato says he will draw it and Miku tries to guess what he is drawing when Souhei walks out of the room.

Miku is in bed and distressed because she knows Souhei is not her fated person, but yet she loves him and this is the end of episode 5.
Sprout episode 5 WOW!!! that was a very dynamic episode and many things took me off guard. Firstly Souhei does not recognize Miku’s feelings right away and Miku immediately backtracks after herself but it seems at the end of the episode Souhei seems to recognize his feelings for Miku. She keeps saying she wants to see Souhei’s face which makes me think that she keeps talking about when he first brought her to the nurses office and in that moment she wanted to see his face. Secondly I was so surprised that it continued with Hayato and Miku’s story line at all I thought the two of them would be avoiding each other from then on but I was happy that those two could be friendly to each other. Thirdly I forgot to mention in the last episode how Miyuki and Miku’s relationship has changed Miku is not feeling so hostile to Miyuki anymore probably because Hayato is with her. I also think that in this episode it becomes apparent that Miku feels more at ease because she lives with Souhei and gets to spend that extra time that Miyuki doesn’t get because she is not there. I also was surprised that Miyuki went into Hayato’s arms even though she was already comforted by Souhei so therefore she should have been okay already, but I guess that means that she doesn’t really believe or trust Souhei. I mean Miyuki hugged Souhei but he did not even hug her back which I think is weird usually if someone you like is hugging such as your girlfriend it would be normal to hug them back. Maybe it is a cultural thing but it could also be showing that Souhei’s feelings towards Miyuki is not that strong or there is something missing in their relationship. Miyuki then must be able to recognize Souhei’s feelings for Miku herself and she must sense that Miku likes him as well. Although in the episodes they do not show Souhei having any feelings for Miku he has always been attentive to Miyuki when she was there and not giving Miku any special attention. It seems to be that Miyuki has feelings for Hayato and must have been rejected by him but she still cannot get over him. What this show has so far taught me is that when you fall in love you cannot get over this no matter the circumstance Miku, Miyuki and Hayato have all fallen in love and cannot get over this and seem to be stuck. Souhei is the only one that has not seemed to fall in love or at least is unaware of his own feelings even though he is trying to help others he still seem oblivious to it. One thing I find funny in the show is that Hayato is soo much taller than Souhei and when they are standing next to each other Souhei looks soo tiny!! anyway can’t wait for episode 6 its getting good!! Sorry for the bad screen shots!!
