At the end of the last episode Michiru played by Nagasawa Masami (Proposal Daisakusen
, Sailor Fuku to Kikanju
) received a call from Sosuke played by Nishikido Ryo (Attention Please
, Ganbatte Ikimasshoi
) during Ruka’s played by Ueno Juri (Nodame Cantabile
, Jodan ja nai!
) victory party. Sosuke tells Michiru that he’s about to kill himself. Michiru tells Ruka that she can understand Sosuke’s weakness and over Ruka’s objections she rushes off to save him. When Takeru played by Eita (Atsu-hime
, Orange Days
) comes out of the bar to comfort Ruka, an angry Ruka shakes him off and tells Eri played by Mizukawa Asami (Iryu
) and Takeru that there is nothing they can do as Michiru choose to go on her own, and proceeds to get very drunk. Michiru arrives at Sosuke’s apartment to find the very alive Sosuke sitting on his couch. He takes her cell phone and burns her yearbook with Ruka’s picture in the kitchen sink. Then tells her to go on living with him, and that he won’t let anyone stand in his way. When Eri and Takeru half carry a drunken Ruka into the house, Ogurin is sitting waiting for them. He asks that they allow him to move back in as he and his wife are getting a legal trial separation. Ruka complains that it’s unfair to Eri, but Eri readily agrees to take him back as a housemate.
I knew that Sosuke was going to be alive when Michiru returned to the apartment, it’s too early in the drama to kill him off and while I’m definitely not a proponent of suicide I sure did hope he had. I wonder if Michiru at some time in the past attempted suicide because of what she said to Ruka about understanding Sosuke’s weakness. This episode brings a lot more in about Takeru, and out of all the characters I think I like him the most. He genuinely cares for the others and puts himself at risk on their behalf.
