Junichi doesn't seem to realise it, but that girl is Ai Nanasaki, a classmate of Miya's who he next runs into (and catches a tantalising glimpse of) at a park while he's running to the nearest toilet - yes, that's right, this arc's first meeting between its soon to be lovers is pre-empted by a full bladder. And they say romance is dead.

Anyhow, it's really a little too early to get any feelings for this arc from this first episode - Unlike Sae who annoyed me instantly, I don't dislike Nanasaki, but although I'm starting to warm to her I wouldn't go as far as to say I like her either. At the moment there isn't really a lot to her aside from the glint in her eye when she catches Tachibana looking at her in that way, and her personality seems to be a little all over the place which makes her hard to pin down (oh stop it, I don't mean it like that). So, this is a mediocre start to the story arc for me with little of note to speak of, but hey - At least I don't completely hate the girl involved this time around, which has to be a promising start to proceedings.
