- Last episode, we became immersed with the struggles of Masako as she tries to move on from her decision to not take care of Rin.
- Last episode, Haruka decided that running away was more order than fact–and she had to live with Daikichi and Rin! However, despite her best efforts, her husband does come to take her and Reina back with her. But we do learn about the difficulties of parenting while living in an unbearable household.
