Koikimo episode 8 is now out! Following the cliffhanger ending on the previous episode, this is a much-awaited continuation. Another reason why the fans are waiting for this is because the episode will revolve on Ryo and Ichika’s Valentine’s Day events, together with their gifts to certain people.
The previous episode ended on the part where Ichika told Ryo that she will visit his house on Valentine’s Day, early in the morning. Thus, episode 8 starts on Ryo waiting for Ichika in front of their door. In addition, according to Rio, her brother looks like a dog waiting for his master to come.
After a few moments, Ichika finally arrived at Ryo’s house, and went inside. There, Ichika said that the reason she visited is because of her Valentine’s gift to Ryo. Ryo suddenly felt happy and asked Ichika to hand over the chocolate for him. Ichika however said that her gift is different from sweets. She suddenly gave Ryo a warm hug and told him that it was her Valentine’s Gift. After that, Ichika immediately went outside the house, while Ryo lie down on the floor with mixed feelings of shock and happiness.
Ichika’s next destination is her school. There, she also gave Valentine’s chocolates to her friends, including Tamaru. Nevertheless, after receiving Ichika’s gift, Tamaru confessed his true feelings towards her. He also asked Ichika if she can go out with him. Well, Ichika declined his offer, but Tamaru is persistent. Hence, he told Ichika to think it over again and he will wait for her answer.
Another thing we have here is Matsushima. In the previous episode, we see her carrying chocolate. Obviously, it’s her Valentine’s present for Ryo. However, she doesn’t have time to give it while at work because both of them are loaded with tasks. making her feel sad. When Matsushima arrived the train station to go home, she also saw Ryo. She cleared her resolve and went straight to Ryo to give the chocolates. Ryo thankfully accepted the present, and Matsushima is really satisfied.
After the events on Valentine’s day, Ichika is acting differently. It’s because she doesn’t know what to do with Tamaru’s proposal. Furthermore, Rio noticed that Ichika is not her usual self since Valentine’s day. She keeps asking her what’s the matter, but Ichika don’t like to tell Rio about he situation. As a result, Rio asked a certain person who might now what’s happening to Ichika, which led her to learn more about Tamaru’s confession.
On the contrary, Ryo also noticed Ichika’s condition. So he went to her school to reach out to her, but Ichika only scolded him for a certain reason. The good thing is that Ryo remained composed and answered Ichika in a good manner. Ichika calmed down because of what he said, and there she realized her answer to Tamaru, as well as who is the person she’s in love with.
