It seems that they're friends now. I'm glad that this arc is over. I didn't like it.

So they reconciled. Chizurufelt something when she saw Arata hold someone in a protective position.

Hishiro is such a cutie~

Great episode! Loved the direction of this episode in particular with the perfect balance of comedy and and the heavier and deeper scenes. Cool to see Kaizaki using his life experiences to chip in and help resolve this little problematic matter. Lol @ Ryo & Kaizaki's scene in the bushes, easily my lol moment of the episode, and that final scene after the end credits scene was pure gold!

Kaizaki straight up lectured Kairu as the old man he is! It's so funny thinking the scene that way, but on a serious note, I very much respected his decision to give Kairu a piece of his mind. Kaizaki as a person who pretty much failed in life and has tasted the bitter side of reality, his advice to Kairu is priceless and just as Yoake said, will stick with her for the rest of her life. The part when he admits it's sad seeing her do this petty act must've hit Kairu hard. Imagine having someone seemingly of your age and experience being disappointed in what you did. Oof

Voice acting is really amazing for the past 5 eps, but it's especially so for Kairu. Especially for this ep. I can feel just about every frustration, anger, annoyance and desperation Karui felt when she told Kizaki how she felt about all this. Damn, gotta check the VA!

Thanks to Kiazaki's involvement, the dispute between Kairu and Hishiro is settled. It's just one big misunderstanding, I'm glad they both have developed and are starting to become friends now. Thanks a lot, Kaizaki!

Bruh this episode was perfect! I'm seriously impressed!

Seeing how Kaizaki's life experience related to Kairu's issue was amazing, especially how it related to female empowerment in the work place. It really solidified the kind of connection between life experiences in High School and the work place.

I also really loved the idea that Kairu won't remember who yelled at her, but she will remember that someone did yell at her and how it changed her. The series hasn't really explained much of how exactly the memories will be erased, and I think that was a weak point until now. That small moment was enough to justify the theme, because it shows the character development that Kaizaki causes will still be reflected after ReLife is over. Plus it relates a lot too, how in real life, we don't exactly remember the specific aspects of something that makes an impression on us, but we do remember how it made us feel and what it taught us.

I really feel like this anime sold perfectly why being a rival in anime is so important, the lack of being acknowledged whilst being bettered by someone who's so close yet so lacking in empathy seems to have some scaring affects. I'm not sure if I've really seen an anime before that had that kind of "aha!" moment where you could really tie the rival trope to a real life justification, or at least a reason that felt completely and wholly logical and sound. Of course, rivals bettering others is obvious and a common theme in anime, but I don't think the lack of a rival has ever hurt so much - thus making the rival trope feel very justified here. (though 3-Gatsu did this well as well, but that was in a different context).

And of course, Hishiro was perfect as always.

i like how self-aware kaizaki is i mean he's not a perfect guy/MC but he's really self-aware

hishiro is so sweet in her own ways!! and her chibi was so cute when she was figuring things out lol

i'm glad the girls were finally able to sort out their misunderstanding, that was cute! was also getting tired of that misunderstanding lol good character development but the plot needs to move forward alr....

but i’ll probably remember over and over again

show seems decent enough but can I point out that the whole concept of a middle aged man basically zac efronning himself back into highschool is kind of pointless aside from a few flat jokes based on his older age like his shoulder getting rekt when throwing the ball? Like you could take it out entirely and it's still the same highschool drama we always get. Perhaps it's too early to tell and there's more to the story, but that's just what I'm getting so far. Anyhow, carry on, but I'm just not feeling it for this show just yet
