Chitose seems to have lost her positive determination during the previous episode. How does our lovable yet annoying protagonist fare this week?
(Spoilers in this review)
Well, it turns out that Koto and Gojo-kun were both voice actors at the same time. Imagine that.
Gojo-kun then has a pensive monologue as he thinks about his past and Chitose’s current situation.
And Chitose is…definitely disheartened. Everyone can tell (besides Nanami).
By the way, this episode features a lot of smacktalk aimed at Chitose. Everyone is acknowledging her faults, which is good?
Meanwhile Kuzu-P is trying to get his secret plan rolling, which involves making Nanami the focus of their campaign. However, the president shows us that he’s not just a fool by saying that Nanami needs to gain more experience.
And then he claims that he’s making a bet on Chitose in the hopes that she overcomes her setback and transforms. H-he’s cooler than I remember. I feel my old man fetish tingling.
The girls aren’t ready to go home yet so they’re chilling at a park. More Chitose dissing happens, but Nanami stands up for the absent voice actress. It turns out she really, truly likes and respects Chitose from the bottom of her heart.
And then the yuri quota is fulfilled. We needed some of this.
Meanwhile Chitose is bumming inside her room. After Gojo-kun comes in and gives her the presents everyone gave her the other day (it seems like he held onto them since she was made to walk home while he dropped Nanami off), she admits that she’s scared that no one will pay attention to her once she’s no longer new. It’s implied that the arrival of Nanami was a wake-up call to Chitose in how she can no longer consider herself a newbie and how she needs to get her act straight.
Good thing onii-chan is here to tell her that confidence and optimism is a powerful weapon that can help her achieve her dreams! He also finally gives Chitose the present he picked out for her.
As usual, Chitose enjoys hearing the praise and then asks for Gojo-kun to be more specific with his compliments. Turns out he sort of sucks at stroking people’s egos.
Be that as it may, Chitose feels more determined to try hard again. However, on the day of the last voice recording session for Kusure, there’s a huge blizzard that shuts down almost all forms of public transportation. Chitose is going to have to go by foot and face the elements! It looks from the preview that her co-workers may be worried she won’t show up, but we know she will! The main character has to pull through during the final episode!
I don’t know. I felt really sad while watching this episode because it basically cemented the fact that some people quit because they’re not good enough. It’s something that bothers me at all times. Oh, well, I should stop projecting so hard.
The last episode is titled, “Karasuma Chitose and…” See you next week!
