It’s New Year’s Eve and the gang always spend it together.
Everyone laughs at Ken when he thinks that DKNY stands for “Don’t Knock New York”. Rei jokes that if she had a three million dollars she would buy a Don’t Knock New York bag.
Then, while walking alone, Rei tells Ken that she and Tada are going out. Ken is devastated. He decides that he is going to try and forget Rei so that in the present him’s hurt wont be so great. So, as per tradition, the gang (plus Tada) go to the beach to watch the New Year’s sunrise. However, Ken doesn’t go. Instead he spends his time trying to win a Don’t Knock New York bag and think everything through.
The way Future Ken convinced Past Mikio that he is in a time slip was really funny. I actually understood the Japanese in this part, I was very proud of myself! Not word for word, but I could comprehend what he was saying, and it gave me a warm tingly feeling.
It’s also good to see a bit more Mikio. It has seemed like he’s been on the sidelines up until now. A more active role is nice. Plus, Yuuta rocks my socks.
Another exciting thing was we got to see the Marathon Man. It is definite to conclude there is a “running” theme in this show. Ken is always running.
Ken tries to forget about Rei, but he ends up realising something even more important: He can’t. He can’t forget about her. She is that special to him that he should try everything he can to be with her. It was an awesome scene and I could truly relate to poor Ken. (I wont say if I cried or not :P)
I may or may not have cried. I love shows that make me feel something.
Not much Rei/Ken developments/moments. However, the DKNY bag incident was sweet.
Things have to hit the bottom before they bounce up and so I’m expecting next week’s episode -where Tada proposes – to be even more depressing. It’s going to be great!
