I enjoy a good cliffhanger as much as the next person, but I wasn’t eager to see how Toshiyuki and Yume’s night in Sapporo would unfold. When we last saw these two, they were sitting close to each other in a dark bar. Toshiyuki was urging Yume to drink more alcohol as he mustered the courage to express his very obvious feelings for her.

As this episode opens, we see Yume choosing her words carefully after listening to Toshiyuki’s little speech. While she enjoys hanging out with him, she doesn’t feel strongly enough about him yet to start dating. “But you do like me, right?” he asks, wanting to make sure he still has a shot. “You’re on my radar,” Yume answers.
