Here’s Kumiko Oumae as she’s doing practice, but Kumiko is very conflicted about the strained relationship between Mizore Yoroizuka and Nozomi Kasaki.
And speaking of Nozomi Kasaki, she’s here to check on Kumiko-chan before heading out to see her friend Mizore.
The problem is that letting Nozomi paying a visit to her estranged friend might lead into problems…
…like this one over here as they sure made an awkward atmosphere upon meeting face-to-face.
After all, Kasaki left the concert band club while Yoroizuka stays, despite the fact that Mizore doesn’t like competitions.
Speaking of Mizore Yoroizuka, seems that she runs away from Kasaki as it turns out, she can’t face her friend directly.
Oh boy, looks like we need to find out why Mizore’s relationship with Nozomi has problems!
But first, let’s find Mizore-sempai as Kumiko searches for the oboist. Of course, it’s gonna be like finding a needle in a haystack as Kitauji High School is big!
Eventually, Oumae found Yoroizuka-sempai as she cries behind the teacher’s desk. So what about the reason for Mizore having a strained relationship with Nozomi?
Well, it turns out that she doesn’t hate Kasaki but rather Yoroizuka is very scared to not only face her friend, but the reality of Nozomi quitting the concert club without knowing about it. Then again, I think it stems from miscommunication as Nozomi didn’t have the time to talk about Mizore regarding her resignation at that time.
And also, Yoroizuka considers Kasaki as her only friend since middle-school, even though the former is very shy while the latter is out-going with other people.
Yeah, Mizore doesn’t like being neglected by Nozomi but there’s one more friend who cares about her…
And it’s none other than Yuko Yoshikawa as she’s happy that Mizore is doing a fine job doing the qualifiers, which Yuko is motivated to get better and reach the nationals together.
Basically, Yoshikawa cares about Yoroizuka and also let’s go back to Mizore’s first friend!
Yeah, I’m talking about Nozomi Kasaki and I have to say that she’s starting to patch things up with Mizore.
After all, they made a promise to get into the national competition in high school, but let’s just say that Nozomi backed-out even though Asuka Tanaka told her not to resign.
So while Kasaki wants to go back now, I don’t know if Asuka would allow her in the concert club.
For now, seems that she and Yoroizuka are getting back together. Anyways, I’ll see you on the next episode!
