I find it very impressive how every single synopsis of this show failed to mention that there are LGTB characters in this drama. I thought it was already quite a surprise when it was revealed Chouji’s a gay and then we get another single mother who’s a lesbian.
In this episode, when I saw them sitting around the table like this. I can just draw arrows already lolz
In the last episode, Chouji’s mother left angrily after hearing that Hiro is not pregnant. But then, the next morning, she was found lying outside the apartment. This mother-in-law is really taking things to a whole new level. I’ve seen strict and really obnoxious ones (don’t even have to look far, there’s one in Kekkonshiki) but this one is just totally unpredictable. She’s really annoying in a way where she keeps pestering Chouji about the marriage before this and now getting mad at Hiro for lying about the pregnancy. Has she forgotten that she lied about her cancer too? Well, luckily she doesn’t appear much in this episode so Hiro can take a breather from all the outrageous things she puts her up to.
Chouji confessed to delivery guy, Tamotsu the other night about his love for him. That gave Tamotsu a shock and so Chouji begged Hiro to save his ass by telling Tamotsu that the ‘love’ is just like an affection towards a kouhai.
As reluctant as Hiro is to get tangled by the mess, she still ends up explaining to Tamotsu (or rather lied for Chouji’s sake) about it so Tamotsu wouldn’t be afraid of meeting Chouji. After hearing that Hiro cleans up his mess, Chouji is delighted and plans a party.
He’s too excited about Tamotsu coming.
Single mother, Mizumori and her daughter are invited too. She knows about Hiro’s secret about her fake marriage with Chouji but she understands Hiro’s circumstances and will keep it between them both.
The next day, Hiro’s cousin, Ten-chan confesses to Hiro that he actually liked her since they were young. This obviously surprises Hiro.
Later Mizumori tells Hiro that she knows Hiro has begun to like Chouji again. She suggests her to just tell the truth and it doesn’t matter whether he’s gay or not.
I knew her cousin’s marriage isn’t a rosy as she makes it sound like. She spends most of the time at her mother’s house anyway.
At the end of the episode, just when Hiro finds the courage to confess to Chouji about her feelings, Chouji stands up abruptly and thanks her for making him realize that he should confess his own feelings too. So off he goes to his crush Tamotsu.
So this is what I think. Hiro and Chouji will never get together. He’s gay so it’s really one-sided love. The single mother will never build a family with Hiro too because she’s not into women. Chouji will never be with Tamotsu because he’s not into men. So seriously…I won’t be surprised if at the end of this show, everyone stays single but lives happily being who they are. As simple as that. Maybe we’re gonna get something like Last Friends lolz minus the DV guy.
At this point, I don’t get why Hiro even bother going on with the fake marriage. Chouji’s mother is not sick anyway. So there’s no reason anymore to continue this.
Preview for next episode
