Haruka heads out to see Hayato’s concert on her own and finds herself getting lost (much as her friends had feared). She spots Natsuki without his glasses only to comes across seeing a whole different side of him,who’s very angry and aggressive. After he gets ‘hit’ by a piece of trash someone had tossed over their shoulder intialy planning the trash bin, he snaps and charges at the two men and punches a large hole between them. Shou jumps into the picture slipping on his glasses bringing him back to his ‘usual self’. Shou reveals that Natsuki has another side of him called Satsuki who is the last person anyone would want to mess with. However while they were eating, Natsuki’s glasses once more slips off and Satsuki quickly creates chaos as Haruka distracts him while Shou slips the glasses back on once again. It turns out that he and Natsuki were going to see the Piyo show that was going to take place after Hayato’s performance. So the three of them watch Hayato’s show, however much to Haruka’s disappointment, she comes to realize that Hayato isn’t singing the way he used to and wasn’t touching her heart at all. Suddenly Hayato makes a mistake as the mic had flew out of his hands. He stands on the stage startled and in shock, no moving an inch despite the calls of the staff and the encouragement from the fans. In the audience, Natsuki gets pushed a bit causing him to lose his glasses for the third time (only this time they were stepped on and damaged) and hell breaks loose. He storms up to Hayato and jumps on stage yelling how it pisses him off to see Hayato sing insincerely and demands that he listens to his song.
With that said he steals the spotlight as he is aired on television where Otaya, Masato and Ren all watching, staring at the tv dumbfounded, Haruka in the middle of all this approaches him to try (despite the glasses having no lens) to put the glasses on, but fortunately Shou managed to stuff the Piyo hat on from behind him that had goggles/glasses and brought him back to normal. While she and the others are making a get away, she stumbles falls and get caught by Hayato only she quickly notices his injury and eyes, coming to realize that Hayato is actually Tokiya.
Crap I made an over-sized summary again…
And to think we thought Natsuki was already dangerous enough as he is… >_>;
DAMN, Satsuki is so violent, so powerful, so INSANE and BADASS – man, and his song and voice was fucking amazing!!!!! I was kind of worried this guy was going to be singing about fluffy Piyo with butterflies and unicorns shitting rainbows. Thankfully that isn’t the case, but MAN – I LOVE THIS. HIS SONG, HIS AWESOMENESS, A:SKFHAKSJGHKALSHGAK I JUST LOVE IT! BUT I WOULDN’T WANT TO BE NEAR HIM, DEAR GOD NO, I’D BE KILLED.
I think the best thing about this episode was definitely the plot development. It’s moving forward, and it’s really Tokiya the one who’s in the middle of it all. Out of all the boys, while he yes – hasn’t been getting the same amount of screen-time, he’s still making an impact on his importance to the plot considering they are taking their sweet time and slowly having him warm up to Haruka. However, at the same time, Haruka has come to realize during Hayato’s performance, he isn’t singing the way he used to. She isn’t feeling the connection, the warmth, that special thing that calms her down – instead, it worries her.
I think it’s no longer a secret for both us and Haruka (despite she is very confused, but she has a brain to actually notice the hints) now that Tokiya is labeled with a stamp on his forehead, ‘I’m Hayato‘ (who by the way is nothing more than a character in name). The episode literally gave it away for us, starting from Haruka’s encounter with Tokiya when she bumped into him revealing he was injured, and then the changing room where in the very~ back corner (if you noticed at all), is his shirt. Surely if they wanted to hide his identity a bit longer, they wouldn’t had shown his true face and avoid small details. I felt really bad for him when he messed up on stage, I was actually worried at first his mic was going to hit someone in the audience such as Haruka herself.
I find it ironic that his new song is all about not lying about yourself and being happy and here he is, singing this. Like Satsuki had described to be, it was indeed insincere and there was no heart in the song- on top of this, this guy is NOT happy.
The episode overall was not as hilarious as the previous one. It might have to do with sharing the ‘serious/dramatic’ mood on Tokiya’s side of the story. I reall like the fact that not all the guys are singing romantic serenades songs directed to Haruka, I find this is far more refreshing and less overwhelming. The only negative point that has a chance to redeem itself in the future is to give us a proper explanation of the pieces of memories that we saw while Satsuki was singing and how he came to be and what triggered it (but I find the chance of that happening is very slim). From what we got, it looks like it may have to do with a fire. :\ But the scenes flashed by so fast, it’s almost hard to tell. Every other character got a bit more backstory about themselves, Natsuki – I find has been kind of… deemed as not important when it kind of is to Natsuki’s character.
T^T Unfortunately I won’t be updating for the next two weeks since as some of you may know, I’ll be away where I can’t access the internet. >_<// No one else on the team has watched Uta no Prince-sama yet so they can’t cover it besides the fact i REALLY REALLY REALLY WANT TO ESPECIALLY FOR TOKIYA’S EPISODE.
AHHHHHHH GOD, WHY DO I HAVE TO BE GONE FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS?!?!?! HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME, JUST WHEN THE PLOT IS KICKING IN, TOKIYA IS LIKELY TO HAVE HIS EPISODE NEXT WEEK – YOU EVIL EVIL UNIVERSE!!!!!
PS: HAYATO’S DERPY FACE SCARES ME, ALOT.
PSS: MASATO’S, REN’S AND OTOYA’S EXPRESSION WHILE WATCHING THE TELEVISION WAS PRICELESS.
