Sprout episode 12 starts off with Souhei’s wind chime ringing and it is summer one year later. Miku narrates that it has been one year since Souhei has left, she is getting ready for school and her hair is longer.

Miku is walking to school and she is thinking that in the past year nothing has happened that she would have to talk about.

Miyuki is getting asked out by a student and she says sorry and walks away. Takeru and Arata overhear this and they tease each other saying they should ask her out.

Miku, Fumiko and Ami are walking together and they pass Souhei and Hayato and they both reply hello politely. She narrates that they both went back to being normal classmates.

At soccer club Souhei is the new captain and he tells everyone he will do his best, Sou is in the club. Haruka comes over and she says she has just come to watch the new captain speech and chides him for making it so short. He bows and she walks away.

 


Miku is with her friends and Ami is being all cute on the phone and Fumiko asks if Miku still doesn’t feel like dating and Miku replies that its not like she is popular. Fumiko calls her out and says it because she can’t forget her fated person who is Souhei, she flashbacks to when she held hands with her fated person. As they walk they see the soccer club and Fumiko asks Miku if she thinks that one day she will be able to unite with her fated one someday and Ami asks if she still believes in her eternal first love. Miku says she was wrong that Souhei wasn’t her fated person and that is why they won’t be united.

Souhei watches the girls walk past during practice and Takeru notices and calls him back. Takeru and Arata are talking after practice and they figure that Souhei liked Miku the whole time and that is why he broke up with Miyuki.

Naoharu, Kiyoka and Miku’s parents are preparing to eat outside and Miku’s mom says that it has been awhile. Kiyoka is remembering about coming there last year and she says it s a bit lonely.

Miku comes home and sees Souhei’s bike, Souhei is eating BBQ and Miku’s mom says that if she knew Souhei was coming she would have made more chicken, Naoharu says sorry but he suddenly came over. Miku is with them and her dad notices that this is the first time that Souhei has come over since he left. Miku thinks that even if its like this she is happy, Souhei notices that the wind chime is up and Miku nods that she did.

Souhei gets his bike and is walking out, Miku comes running after him and says that she will walk him to the corner. As they walk Miku tells him congratulations on being captain and she thinks that there is a lot that she wanted to talk about the words won’t come out very well. Souhei says that he is glad to see everyone doing well and she agrees and is glad he is good too. He says bye and she says this is the first going to separate homes, he acknowledges and then says he is going to go. He bikes away and Miku watches and thinks that they can’t go back to the summer when Souhei was here.

Miku is walking in her uniform and meets Miyuki and the stop to sit on a bench. Miku says that it has been awhile since they talked like this, since there sleepover. Miyuki asks if she still likes Souhei, Miku just laughs.

Hayato is waiting in the school and Souhei comes in asking what he wanted to talk about. Hayato asks why Souhei doesn’t go out with Miku, because he likes her.

Miku says that it isn’t that she likes Souhei and that ever since he stopped boarding at her house they have been just like classmates. Miyuki tells her that she is a really bad liar.

Souhei replies that he doesn’t really like Miku, Hayato says that he doesn’t have to lie anymore and to hurry and confess.

Miyuki tells her that at that time she wanted to be Miku and was jealous but now she doesn’t want to be her because she stopped time one year ago and that it is probably the same for Souhei.

Souhei says that it is fine the way it is because he thought he would be with Miyuki forever he wasn’t able to persist with those feelings. Hayato asks if he thought that Miyuki would have been happy like that.

Miyuki asks if she would be okay if Souhei would go out with someone else and she replies that it is something for Souhei to decide and Miyuki replies that she is one to talk and asks why does he think she broke up with Souhei.

Hayato asks Souhei if he would be fine if Miku went out with someone else and Souhei says yeah if she was happy. Hayato asks if he is really thinking like that and he says yeah and Hayato grabs him.

Miyuki grabs Miku and tells her to take one step forward.

Hayato grabs Souhei and punches him in the face and asks him angrily if he had any idea what it felt for Miyuki to break up with him and for him to break up with Miku.

Miyuki says that if she doesn’t it won’t end for her either.

Hayato says to let him be glad that he broke up with Miku and if she doesn’t become happy he won’t be able to feel that way either.

Miku nods to Miyuki and runs away, Miyuki smiles.

Souhei walks out of the gym.

Miku is running down the road and having flashbacks of Souhei. She runs up the steps to the school and trips and hurts her knee, she sits down. A hand appears in front of her and she sees Souhei and grabs his hand and she stands up. She says she likes him and have always liked him. He says Miku and goes in for a hug and tells her that he likes her twice. He then says that he has finally said it, they put there foreheads together. Miku narrates that her love and Souhe’s love overlapped for the first time.


Miku and Souhei are holding hands and walking, shots of the school and them and plants sprouting. She thinks no matter when she can’t let go and if its now she can strongly put into words.

Miku and Souhei go to her house and announce they are home and she thinks my fated person and this is how the final episode ends.

I was so shocked that after one year Miku and Souhei was not really talking or having to do anything with each other. At first I felt sad and was really wondering how this series was going to end and was hoping that it wasn’t going to suck!! I loved that Miyuki and Hayato both had a talk with them and set them straight. I liked that they were on the same page and the switched between scenes to show the different sides. I really felt like Hayato especially was being used in the relationship to help figure out Miku’s feelings which is soo sad for him. I found it odd that they never talk about her fainting and him helping her to the nurse’s office and I mean would it really be that hard to even ask him. I guess they wanted to keep it ambiguous to hide who her real fated one was and I guess the scene where he gives her his hand is supposed to mean that he was the one who originally helped her.

The manga was really different from this drama, they really developed the characters of Naoharu and Kiyoka much more in the manga and I kinda feel a little sad they weren’t given more of a story line. I liked them as a group and feel sad that they didn’t spend more time together. I really liked this one part in the manga when Souhei had left the house and one day they text each other about supper and Souhei still gets the text but he feels sad that he doesn’t get to be there anymore. I would have really liked this to be a part of the drama!! oh well!!

Another interesting thing is that Hayato was a different type of character in the manga and so therefore it really made the drama a lot different and it was just a surprising when things would happen. I did not mind this change and instead really enjoyed it better than the manga.

I really loved this series and thought that it was really well done. I felt that the relationships and feelings that were expressed in this drama was really realistic and the emotions felt so real. I thought it was a really grown up story even though it was targeted for teens it really was the best well down drama I have seen for a long time. I really enjoyed my time with this drama and I hope everyone else did!! thanks for reading and supporting me!!

Oh and Hayato won the vote!! He got 62.5% of the votes!! yikes poor Souhei he really couldn’t compete with the handsome Hayato!! I guess if I had one complaint it would be that Miku didn’t get to be with Hayato!! but I mean Souhei is her fated one so who can really argue with that?? I mean we should be looking at the inside not the outside!! 🙂 right?

Episode 11 starts with Souhei getting a phone call from his mom telling him to leave the boarding house and Miku is listening in. When he gets off the phone she asks him if he is leaving and he tells her that his mom just wants him to go home and he is going to think about it. Miku then thinks that she hadn’t even thought of a tomorrow without Souhei.

Hayato is kicking the soccer ball with Sou, Souhei comes up to them and asks to speak to Hayato. He tells Hayato that he broke up with Miyuki and Hayato asks why he tells him because when he looks at his parents he doesn’t believe in forever or eternity. He goes on to say he wishes he believed that he thought different and he then tells him he got a call from his mom and she asked him to go home. He also says that his mom was crying and after breaking up with Miyuki he really thought about it and found that he was running away from reality.

Miku is walking with Ami and Fumiko and is distracted and isn’t listening to Ami talk. They ask if something happened with Hayato and she says no. She realizes that her mind had been occupied with Souhei.

Souhei is in a field and Miyuki comes towards him and he says he is sorry for calling her out and she says its okay and that she brought the things she borrowed. They exchange the bags and she comments that is nice not having to send pointless texts anymore. She asks if he has club after this and he says yes and they say bye and walks away. As she is walking Souhei yells Miyuki and says thank you and she says that she needs to thank him too, he nods no and she says its good to be able to still talk to Souhei normally.

Takeru and Arata are getting dressed for soccer and they are talking about why Souhei and Miyuki broke up and that Souhei had told them it was his fault. Arata asks Takeru if he is going to go for Miyuki now and he says he wouldn’t try to butt in like that. Haruka has been listening to them talk.

Souhei is kicking soccer balls and Haruka is watching him. After practice Souhei goes over to a sitting Haruka and he asks her what she wanted and if something happened. She instead asks him if something happened to him and that it hurts to see him force a smile. He says that it is easier now and that he is fine. She then goes in for a kiss, she then tells him that she likes him. He stands up and says sorry and she says will it not do and he says sorry again and leaves.

 


Miku has walked home and before she went into her room she stopped and looked at Souhei’s room. She calls Fumiko on the balcony and says that she feels like she doesn’t know anymore and Fumiko tells her to love someone will make you smile when you think of them and to get jealous over little things and it feels so suffocating but you can’t control it. Then Souhei comes onto the yard and tells her that he is back she doesn’t answer and he repeats himself and then she answers. She then realizes that there is only one true love.

Miku’s dad is gardening and Souhei comes out and asks him what he is doing he tells him that he is cutting some excess branches because if he doesn’t then it won’t be able to grow big. Miku’s dad asks him if he wants to try it too and he agrees.

Miku is in the kitchen with her mom and she tells her that Souhei is going back to his mom’s house. She tells her that he is moving next week while it is still summer break.

Souhei is on the balcony and Miku is in her room looking at her phone with the picture of her and Hayato and she thinks that even though she meant to overwrite love with love she still loves Souhei and she cries tears on her phone.

Hayato and Miku are walking and he asks what she wanted to talk about, she pauses and she tries to talk but can’t and so he says lets end this. He asks her if that is what she had wanted to say, she nods her head and he says that he knew it. He tells he knew because everything shows on her face, he tells he that he doesn’t regret it. She says it was all Hayato, he was the one that asked her out and told her that he liked her, dated her and held her hand . He lifts his head toward the sky as if to hold back tears and she says that he was the first for all of those things. She tells him that she was glad that it was Hayato and they both smile.

 


Everyone is there for dinner and they are cheering Souhei because he is leaving. They ask him to says some things and he stands up and says that he ran away to here because his mom became tense after the divorce and that it was hard to be around her. He then says he thought he would always want to be here forever but when he heard his mom sad, lonely voice on the phone he felt really bad. He goes onto say that he has to face her properly because she is family. Miku’s mom asks him if he will be okay and he says yes because he needs to grow some more. Naoharu starts crying and Kiyoka teases him for crying.

Souhei is sitting on the deck and Miku comes in with barley tea and asks him if he wants some and he does. She sits next to him and he says its good, the wind chime rings and she says that she will have to give him back his wind chime and he says its okay she should put it up again next summer. She says thanks and then thinks that he won’t be here then. She then thinks this close distance, atmosphere and this house with Souhei it all ends today. She then takes his arm into her lap and puts her face against it and starts crying. She asks him to just lend her his arm and she thinks please don’t go, and the chime starts ringing and she realizes that her summer with Souhei is over.


I think that he pruning that Miku’s dad was supposed to be a metaphor for Souhei and that he needed to break up with Miyuki to let himself continue to grow and that she might have been holding him back. I think it could also mean that going back to his mom’s place is another way for him to be able to grow because he is facing reality.

Poor Hayato I just knew that they were not going to make it because Miku was not committed to the relationship and Hayato was the one that pursued her and she seemed mostly flattered that someone gave her that attention. They should have casted Hayato for Souhei’s role like I mean come on how was Souhei really supposed to compete with his good looks!! Anyway I am predicting a very happy ending for Souhei and Miku together!! of course I am hoping for the underdog once again!!

Miku crying into his arm, I was expecting more of a reaction from Souhei but he seemed to look at her as if it was completely normal?? so weird! I mean this isn’t the first time that she has touched him does he not see that it shows that she is interested in him?? so odd!!

Tae-Joon gives the phone back and rushes out of the stadium, Hyun-Jae says he will check on him. Hyun-Jae asks Tae-Joon what he is doing and he says he is going to Seoul and Hyun-Jae grabs him and asks him what he is doing. His bag goes flying and a notebook falls out he opens it up and it has height written down and a picture of him jumping.

Jae-Hee is riding a bus and the person next to him is watching the high jump and she asks if she can listen with her and she agrees. Lee Eun Ho clears 2 m 27 cm and Hyun-Jae has cleared 2m 29 cm. It’s Tae-Joon’s turn and is trying 2m 31 cm, he starts running and makes it over perfectly. Jae-Hee is excited and so is Tae-Joon and his Coach. Jae-Hee starts crying, Tae-Joon tells the camera that she needs to wait for him and she starts crying even harder.


It is one year later in California and Jae-Hee is walking a dog and she is sitting on her front yard on her laptop. She gets a video message from Eun-Gyeol and asks her if she has seen his goal. He goes onto say that Coach and Teacher Lee are getting married are getting married next year. Seung-Ri is in imprisonment and is secretly dating Ha-Na but he is working really hard because he wants to major in physical therapy. He then tells her that Dr. Jang has gone to study fashion in Paris. He also says that Tae-Joon went on a vacation somewhere like Jeju Island because they are on a break. He tells her that he is going to email soon again and says good bye. Jae-Hee wonders how Tae-Joon is doing and wishes she got more information on him. She drops her book and sees some feet, she looks up and sees Tae-Joon and they hug. He asks if she was well and she nods and they hug again and this is how the last episode ends!!


What a touching last episode it was very good!! Tae-Joon and Jae-Hee’s love for each other was really cemented in this episode and believable. I am so happy that he didn’t chase after her though and he fulfilled his own dream which was also hers. They were both so sweet to each other and I am happy that they got a happy ending. This episode really wanted to make me cry and the scene that did it was when her whole dorm came to see her off and encouraged her!! I want to cry again just thinking about it!! I am sad that Eun-Gyeol didn’t find anyone for him and is still hung up on Jae-Hee who he will never have. Seung-Ri and Ha-Na are soo cute together, I love that he tries so hard for her and she secretly loves it.

The only thing that confuses me is what happened to Hyun-Jae? is he going to the olympics? obviously Tae-Joon is going to the olympics but why did it take him a whole year to come visit her? I mean couldn’t Jae-Hee have been able to go to another school in Korea and stay closer to him and Eun-Gyeol? I think there could have been a better game plan than the one that they chose.

Thanks everyone for joining me on the journey of To The Beautiful You!! it has been a lot of fun!! I will miss these characters it has been a very well made drama!! It had a perfect amount of drama, comedic situations, romance and friendships. I would highly recommend this drama to anyone! Oh and Tae-Joon wins the poll of course!! thanks for voting and reading!!

Tae-Joon is waiting on the bench and Jae-Hee comes running to him.

Eun-Gyeol is sitting on his bench and flashbacks she says sorry and that she can’t accept his heart and she thought she should tell him this herself. He pats her head.

Jae-Hee tells Tae-Joon she ran all the way here because he said that he missed her and he goes over and hugs her and this how the fifteenth episode ends.

This was a good episode mainly because it is revealed to Eun-Gyeol that Jae-Hee is a girl!! I think many people were waiting for that to happen and I think that he had a right to be mad because he thought he was in love with a boy instead of a girl and that sure could mess with a person’s head. It is kinda weird to see Tae-Joon and Jae-Hee on a date and the same with Eun-Gyeol I found it slightly odd. Poor Eun-Gyeol he really never had a chance she came for Tae-Joon and he didn’t disappoint her so they built an emotional connection as well. They were pretty much girlfriend and boyfriend for a while because they shared there emotions and hurts with each other. When she was with Eun-Gyeol it was just about having fun and being silly so that does not usually develop into a strong emotional connection.

I love the new Hyun-Jae who is trying to be Eun-Gyeol’s friend and is trying to be nicer! I love watching him now!!

Seung-Ri is so cute when he is trying to win Ha-Na’s heart with all his corny jokes!! I think I love this love story even more!!

One thing I wonder if the dorm leaders will start going through dorms and find the hair clip that Eun-Gyeol bought for Jae-Hee in his room and they will think that he is a girl. Although it would be easy to disprove that theory!!

Episode 10 starts with Souhei biking and he goes to to soccer field and asks Takeru and Arata if they have seen Miyuki and they haven’t. They both go looking through the school and tell Souhei that the security guard saw a girl here earlier and that from the description it was probably Miyuki. They figure that she is still there and ask him where a memorable place would be and Souhei takes off running and thinks even though I have decided to be together forever.

Miku is talking to Hayato on the phone telling him about Miyuki and she tells him that Souhei and Miyuki had a fight.

Souhei bikes again and goes to temple and he finds Miyuki there and he asks what she was doing. She tells him that she was waiting for him and she thought that he wouldn’t have found her.


Miku goes to see Hayato working and tells him that Souhei found Miyuki. He asks her if she wants something to drink and seats her. She says that Souhei must be relieved and he points out that she was only worried about Souhei and she says its not like that.

Souhei and Miyuki are talking about the temple being a depressing place for a first date. He flashbacks to their first date and they are making wishes by the temple and he tells her that he wished for him, her and Hayato to go to the same high school and for Miyuki to like him. They make a wish in the current time and Souhei asks what she wished for and she asked to have her previous wish erased. They flashback to Souhei asking what she wished for then and she wouldn’t tell him. In the present he asks what she wished for then back then and she tells him it was for her to be with Souhei forever. He is surprised and asks why she would wish that and she asks to break up.


Miku is leaving the cafe and she asks Hayato when they are going to be going to Tokyo Tower because summer is almost over and he tells her that he will contact her.

Souhei is telling Miyuki that he wants to stay together and she starts to cry and tells him that she doesn’t want him to work hard or force himself. He asks why and she says because that is not the real Souhei and asks if he was trying to keep the promise that he made to stay with her forever and if he has been throwing away his feelings so he wouldn’t betray her. That his real feelings aren’t here anymore and then calls him an idiot. She says that she thought she could live without Souhei and now she is standing on her own feet and that is why she is okay now and that she isn’t troubled now. She then says that their time together wasn’t a waste and he agrees. Souhei then says sorry, Miyuki starts crying.


When they are parting she asks if they can leave with a smile and he says impossible and she says this is where he should force himself and he agrees. She says bye and he says bye, she walks away and he watches her walk down the boardwalk.

Miku is coming back and meets Souhei in the front of the house she asks if Miyuki is okay and he says sorry for making her worry. Naoharu comes out and he tells them he is going to the convenience store and Souhei compliments his shirt.

Later on Souhei is sitting outside and Naoharu shows him some games he should play to clear his head. He says that Souhei is like his best friend from Love Rocket because he pretends nothing is wrong when he breaks up with his girlfriend. Souhei then asks if he could borrow that and Naoharu tells him that if he was an adult he would treat him to beer. Souhei says instead of that could he hear him out, Miku comes with barley tea but waits outside and Souhei goes on saying that he loved Miyuki a lot and she had stayed by his side when he was having a tough time. He goes on saying he couldn’t do anything and in the end he made her feel that way even though he promised her to always stay by his side. He continues that he didn’t think anything would change and he had to force himself to stay true to the promise. Naoharu says if people don’t change they can’t move forward and in order to change we get hurt and hurt others. He goes on that we take in pain and overcome it and that is the adventure or life. He then says that he learned that from Rurika, Souhei starts crying and says sorry, Naoharu puts his arm around him. Meanwhile Miku had heard it all.


The next morning they both get up and go on their balcony at he same time. She asks him if he wants to go somewhere and she is inviting Naoharu too. She then says sorry but she overheard yesterday and asks if there is anything she can do, he says he is fine. He gets a phone call from his mom and he says that she is wanting him to leave the boarding house. Miku’s heard this also and this is the end of episode 10.


I think I was anticipating a break up from Miyuki and Souhei for awhile because she is always seems to be picking up on his intentions and she seems even more distanced than him. I did not feel that sad that they broke up and poor Souhei he was crying with Naoharu that made me feel more sad. So funny that Naoharu is the one giving all the love advice to Miku and Souhei even though he doesn’t have a girlfriend and gets all his advice from Love Rocket. I have to say what he was saying was very true and accurate. Unfortunately that this breakup most likely means that Miku and Souhei are going to have to end up together in the end is the feeling I get.

Souhei then excuses himself from the table and her parents wonders if there is something wrong with him because he didn’t even finish his supper which is strange for him.

Miku crosses balconies and waves outside his door she tells him that the stars are pretty. They sit outside on the patio and Souhei says sorry for all that happened and she says it fine it doesn’t bother her at all. She asks if his fake smile is tiring because she can’t do it very well when she tries to fake it. He says its because she is honest and she tells him because he has that character it might be easier for him to smile outside. She tells him that he doesn’t need to fake it when he is at home. She goes on saying he was being cool in front of Miyuki and she acts out what she thinks he would have really wanted to say and that was to tell Miyuki not to hug other guys while dating him. She says didn’t you want to say that and he says that he didn’t jokingly. They both start smiling and she asks if he is faking right now and he says he’s not.

They then decide they will go for drinks.

Hayato is working in a cafe and Miku comes in with Ami and Fumiko and the other girls in the cafe all talk about how cool he is. Fumiko asks if she is jealous and she says no. She then brings up how she was jealous of Souhei, she says it was because it was unrequited love and there was a girlfriend. Hayato is listening to her speak from a distance while working. Fumiko then asks if you like someone wouldn’t that make you jealous. Hayato is called back to work and can’t hear that Miku says that she doesn’t think you have to be jealous because she really likes Hayato.


Souhei and Miyuki are walking and she thanks him for going shopping with her and he tells her it was interesting shopping from a girl’s point of view. He tells her that the girls at his house don’t really act like girls Kiyoka and Miku act more like guys. He then says that maybe Auntie is the most female-like.

Miku is leaving with her friends and she tells Hayato that she will wait where Kou is and he tells her he will come when he is done.

Souhei asks if he should walk her to her bus stop, she doesn’t answer but instead asks how long he is going to stay at the boarding house and he says he plans to stay a long time. Miyuki tells him that he has become very distant that when he lived farther away he was always in reach and now that he lives closer he seems farther away. He reminds her that when he first started boarding there she told him that he was glad he was in a safe place and he tells her he sees it as his home now. He tells her that if she told him to move it would be very hard, she says that is not what she is trying to say. He says she should tell him what she wants him to do and that he calls, text and gets together so she doesn’t feel uneasy. She says that he was doing it for her sake and that he doesn’t want to do those things and that she is forcing him. She says its fine already and that she doesn’t need those dates, texts or calls and she runs away. Souhei chases after her and tells her to say what she wants to say and she asks if he only thought of her today and asks him if he can say that he loves her overall, she says she can say it that she loves the Souhei that loves only her. She goes onto say that she doesn’t love Souhei of right now and then she runs away leaving Souhei who thinks its not fair.


Miku meets Kou who is playing soccer, she joins in and practices kicking soccer with him. Kou tells her to take care of Hayato for him and she agrees. Souhei comes across Miku and Kou and he says he was looking for Kou. Souhei joins soccer with them and leaves his phone and poster on the side.


Miyuki is walking and she tries phoning Souhei but he is playing soccer and doesn’t hear his phone.

Hayato comes and sees Souhei and Miku sitting together.

Miyuki thinks that its not fair and a train goes by and you see her hat flying in the air.

Souhei is awakened by his phone and Miyuki is mentioned in an urgent voice.

Miku and her dad are in the garden and he is picking weeds, Souhei comes running and grabs his bike. Miku follows him asking where he is going and he says that Miyuki didn’t come home last night  and he tried phoning her many times but she wouldn’t answer. He explains that they had a big fight and he left her in a bad mood. He gets on his bike and starts pedaling.

Okay what a doozy of an episode!! first of all Miyuki hugging Hayato apparently was not such a big deal between Miku and Hayato as it was for Souhei and Miyuki, At the end of episode eight it seemed like it was going to be a much bigger deal!! guess not! I thought finally a reason for her to feel guilty and she can’t keep looming that he doesn’t do enough for her but no she still becomes the victim and goes on that he is not a good boyfriend. I am confused as to how he was being distanced he always seems so happy and he doesn’t seem to be the type that talks about his feelings all the time. Why doesn’t she just say she is jealous of his and Miku’s relationship just for the simple fact that he lives with her and therefore has a relationship with her. Anyways she has gotten very annoying in this episode and now of course she is being even more annoying because she is missing!! with her hat flying in the wind I thought for a second that she jumped in front of the train but it can’t be that !! that would be too dark!!

Miku and Hayato I feel bad for Hayato he thinks that Miku only has feelings for Souhei now because he was overhearing her conversation but didn’t get to hear the end of it!! nooo!! they need to be together and happy!!
