Last Friends ラスト・フレンズ Ep4 Screen Shots

Michiru played by Nagasawa Masami (Proposal Daisakusen, Sailor Fuku to Kikanju) is severely beaten by Sosuke played by Nishikido Ryo (Attention Please, Ganbatte Ikimasshoi) for making the mistake of saying “My Ruka” while defending Ruka played by Ueno Juri (Nodame Cantabile, Jodan ja nai!). Michiru flees to Ruka’s pleading for help, who helps her in and Takeru played by Eita (Atsu-hime, Orange Days), uses makeup to help cover-up the worst of her injuries. Ruka wants to know how many times Sosuke has beaten her, but Michiru says it’s never been this bad before but can’t even come up with a figure on how many times he’s assaulted her. Ruka tells her she needs to breakup with him, even if he says that he loves her, violence isn’t love. Eri played by Mizukawa Asami (Iryu, Pride, Saiyuuki) says that Sosuke has become a complete stalker and worries that he might follow her back to the house from work. Ruka says she’ll need to change jobs and not to answer his calls, and then she asks Takeru if he can do anything to get Michiru work. The next day Ruka calls her father and warns him not to give out any information about her because her friend is being stalked. Like any typical father he’s worried that Ruka’s the one being stalked but she assures him that she’s not.

I said it after the last post, I won’t forgive Sosuke, emotionally I’d love to see him beaten within an inch of his life and then thrown in prison for the rest of his miserable life. But from a social perspective what I’d really like to see is that the guy is given some psychological help and kept separated from Michiru by whatever means necessary. This episode we learn some mitigating circumstances for his actions and for Michiru’s too. Michiru probably needs as much counselling as he does, not just for the violence that Sosuke has done, but for her family life as well.
