俺物語 (Ore Monogatari) Episode 5 Review

The sister is here! Suna’s sister is here!

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Yamato: I'm here, Takeo-kun!
Yamato: I’m here, Takeo-kun!

The episode starts with a train ride to school where Takeo scared a couple of rude passengers out of the next station. It was fortunate that Yamato is also in the same train and was surprised that the train ride that she’s taking is the same ride that Takeo is taking to get to school.

Meanwhile, in Takeo’s school, Suna noticed that Takeo isn’t at school and one of their friends were sneaking to his seat but of course the teacher still notices him. It seems he holds the answer as to why Takeo is not present in class. He distributes a video of Takeo helping Yamato to get out of the stop but missed his as a consequence.

While walking to where they’re supposed to meet Yamato, someone screamed for help as her kid falls in the river. Of course Takeo dived in the shallow rivert and helped the kid, but of course, the credit goes to Suna because he’s good looking. It’s sad that they always thanked him and to be fair, Suna tells them he did nothing, yet people will talk to him because he’s the good looking one.

I'm nekkid!

Takeo seems not to care anymore as he is more worried about missing a date with Yamato. Arriving to the designated place, Yamato notices his wet clothes and Suna told her straight-forward what hapened. Suna lend Takeo his gym clothes and of course it does not fit, but its better than wet clothes.

There was this moment that Take cradled Yamato’s face to remove an insect from his hair. Blushing from the encounter, it seems that Yamato thought that he was kissing her. Takeo apologized for touching her without permission and thought of her as someone that is pure.

While walking to her house, they passed by a park and Yamato noticed that they were the only ones there. It seems that she was hinting him about something, but Takeo is a dense creature and doesn’t understand those hints.

Arriving from school, Suna was greeted by her older sister, Ai, who has been away for some time. Upon asking where Takeo is, Suna casually mentioned that Takeo has a girlfriend now. Devastated, Ai revealed to Suna that she has been in love with Takeo for some time and wanted to meet his girlfriend — probably to assess the competition and to make sure that the girl deserves Takeo.

Is there a cat-fight looming?

Ai: WHAT?!
Ai: WHAT?!

The next time Takeo will be meeting Yamato, he brought along Suna as he had noted that Yamato seemed nervous when it was just the two of them. They weren’t aware that someone devious is following them — yes, it’s Ai.

Ambushing their meeting, she was introduced by Takeo as a good-looking and kind-hearted person. But unfortunately, for Ai, Takeo doesn’t notice her despite giving her those compliments. Yamato shared the cookies that she did to everyone and Ai mentioned that it was salty. It seemed that Yamato used salt instead of sugar and was embarrassed to have Takeo eat it all that she grabbed the container away from Takeo. But Takeo doesn’t care and ate everything as he thinks is still delicious.

As Ai asked Takeo what he likes about Yamato, Takeo casually mentions that she is pure-hearted. Suna’s sister didn’t miss anything about Yamato’s reaction and she knows that Yamato is hiding something from Takeo. Fortunately, Takeo knows that something was bothering Yamato but he doesn’t want to ask.

The next day, Suna’s mother asked Ai to shop for her, she saw Takeo in a convenience store reading girl magazines as he wants to understand what is wrong with his girlfriend. Voicing her concerns, Ai mentioned that it might be grave as two-timing him, but Takeo was fine with it as he wants to find out either way.

Frustrated about the answer, Ai just told him that she will ask Yamato instead so that he will stop lounging in the girl’s magazine section in the convenience stores. A scene is then shown in Yamato’s room holding a pillow.

Now, this episode might not be about Yamato cheating as this might be an idea that Ai wanted so that she can have Takeo for herself. There’s hints already that she might be lonely as there’s no one in her house as the couple of times it was shown that Takeo walk her to her house, no one greeted her. There’s a lot of possibilities that circle around the secret that Yamato is keeping and he end of the episode is a clear cliffhanger for everyone!
