The rumors about Yano and Yoshida spread in school even as Sadako, the person supposedly responsible for starting them, remain clueless. Yano and Yoshida try to brush them off but as the rumors get nastier and nastier, they begin to doubt their tentative relationship with Sadako. To make matters worse, they overhear Sadako denying to a classmate her friendship with the two. Meanwhile, Sadako also overhears some classmates saying that her closeness with Yano, Yoshida and Kazehaya might do more harm than good.

Midterm exams are starting and Sadako realizes that she is alone once more. It doesn't take long for Kazehaya to notice so he corners her after school one day. Sadako finally breaks down and tells him that it's because she doesn't want to hurt him or Yano and Yoshida. With Kazehaya's encouragement, however, Sadako resolves to find out once and for all the person responsible for spreading the rumors.


OH EM GEE! The ridiculous problems these kids have. This just goes to show that I really am getting old. I can remember high school but I can't relate to the kind of problems high school brings. It's like, stop with the drama already and talk to them. Jeez. I know it's practically cliche but the first step to solving a relationship problem is to talk with the other party. Really, that is all there is to it. Once you start talking, all grievances can be aired out and misunderstandings can be given light. It's simple. Sadako's cluelessness is getting on my nerves. I hope she shapes up soon because I don't know how long I can hold on with the utter silliness this series is beginning to be.

In other news, it looks like I'll be settling on a semi-proper schedule now:

Friday - Aoi Bungaku
Saturday - Armed Librarians, Kimi ni Todoke
Sunday - Tegami Bachi
