Kyo and Tohru are planning for the future, but first they need to make peace with the past.
It was the anniversary of Kyoko Honda’s death. When I told her I couldn’t go with her to visit the grave this time, she simply answered, “Okay,” and smiled at me. How many more times will I be pardoned by that smile?
Why is a new day dawning? Why do they look like they’re having so much fun? Why is the TV telling me about tomorrow’s weather? Why didn’t the world end the day Katsuya died?
The Hondas quickly settle into their new life together, but of course their happiness can’t last…
The extremely unorthodox courtship of Tohru’s parents continues to be kind of uncomfortable as a not-quite-teacher not-quite-dates his not-quite-student (who is maybe fourteen or fifteen, tops).
Being left behind…or leaving behind. I wonder which hurts more.
