Last Friends ラスト・フレンズ Ep5 Screen Shots

The episode begins where the last episode left off, Michiru played by Nagasawa Masami (Proposal Daisakusen, Sailor Fuku to Kikanju) finds Sosuke played by Nishikido Ryo (Attention Please, Ganbatte Ikimasshoi) crouched down after waiting outside the apartment all night in the rain. She hugs him while Ruka played by Ueno Juri (Nodame Cantabile, Jodan ja nai!) watches from the house. Takeru played by Eita (Atsu-hime, Orange Days) asks Ruka where Michiru is, just as Michiru calls Ruka’s cell lying to her saying that she’s on the way to the hairdressers when in fact she’s taking the soaked Sosuke to his apartment, but promising to come back soon. Ruka repeats the lie to Eri played by Mizukawa Asami (Iryu, Pride) and Takeru. At the apartment Michiru has the fevered Sosuke in bed, and cooks for him. He asks her not to leave promising not to hit her again. She tells him she can’t but if he can become patient and not act like a stalker, someday she’ll return to him. Then she goes to the beauty salon and apologizes to the manager asking for her job back.

I was pleasantly surprised that Michiru didn’t move back in with Sosuke as the beginning of this episode, after the teaser at the end of the last episode I thought she’d be back into his apartment and another cycle of domestic abuse would begin. Another thing I liked about this episode is that all the characters got more development while the oppressive Sosuke languished in bed we learned quite a bit more about most of the supporting characters.
