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!!
