Rokka manages to get in contact with Atsushi, asking with great restraint that he bring the plant back. When he ignores her, she decides to go out and search for him. At this point, I can’t help but feel the most sympathy for her. From her perspective, she’s getting left behind, important things were stolen from her, and now she has to go through the trouble of finding him. I’m still not sure what Atsushi is really up to. Does he think he can just go off and live as Hazuki somewhere else? But the focus of this episode is actually on Hazuki who finally makes a breakthrough.
At least, I think he’s coming back to the real world.
