THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Yep, it's Non-Chan all right.

Sheesh, and here I thought Naoki was a flaming jackhole. I guess I'd have a dark outlook on life if I had to live like Non-chan did, seeing his parents fight and divorce while he was sick, but still he should at least keep it to himself. I guess it turns out he had a tumor in his right kidney all this time, and he needs to have it removed surgically.

I really liked the part where Naoki said even though Kotoko can't do 90 percent of what he does, she more than makes up for the 10 percent he might not be able to do.

Even at that, it looks like next episode that rat bastard Naoki finally, at long last, gets whats coming to him >:)

Sweet episode. I like how the old lady finally started giving Kotoko a break after seeing her and Non-chan. Nice to see Yuuki older :D He is not a cute as Naoki was in high school, lol :) That line about the 90/10% is something that left a great impression on me when I first read the manga, and made me like him more when I re-read it and later watched the dramas.

Am I wrong or were those two lines about the 100% by Naoki the nicest things he's ever said about Kotoko?

This episode wasn't so bad, that was really supprising to see that guy grown up (he has blonde hair for some reason...) I guess there's going to be a fiesta next ep.

haha I was thinking the same thing. Although he has done a lot of nice things for her in the past. like Standing up for her and publicly announcing his love for her in a caf.

This ep was really nice. I found it extremely funny how the only three people that changed in appearance where Non-chan, Yuuki, and Matsamoto. Everyone else looks exactly the same after 7 years lol.

lines like this are exactly what makes this anime so great. We all know why we like kotoko as a character, and this just puts it to words in ways no one else can

Damn, Non-chan was an asshole for most of the episode, but then Kotoko serenades him with inspiring words to allow him to realize his wrong doings. That goes to show you where the mentality "trust no one" gets you.

It occurred to me while watching this ep that kotoko would make an excellent therapist. Reading people's emotions and understanding what's really going on beneath the surface seems to come naturally to her, as does talking people into doing what is really best for them.

Good to see that Naoki is actually capable of complimenting people for their strengths (loved the 90/10% -line! ^_^) instead of just pointing out how stupid they are all the time.

Also good to see that kotoko took a break from craving naoki's constant approval/attention, and instead focussed on her role as a nurse by trying to get non-chan to feel better (albeit with some cheek-slapping on the side ^^)

And non-chan's looks...well i guess the producers wanted to make the character seem delicate in order to match his condition, which would explain the bishounen-face and bleached-blonde hair.

All in all, a great ep!

Great episode. Yuuki actually grew up nicely and he's not that spoiled brat anymore. Kind of weird that there are only a few characters that actually dó change, like Non-chan and Yuuki... I've got the feeling the ambulance is for Matsumoto xD

Kotoko was a bit awkward in the episode but overall, the story is advancing pretty well...

oh so it was Non-chan, never would've thought he looked so much different, hopefully the surgery will be successful. I also really liked that part where Naoki said 90% 10% thing about Kotoko, so schweeed~

Naoki was really worried about Non-chan, that was really am well weird coming from him. i guess that really proves that non-chan was indeed one of hte reasons he studied medicine.

Nice episode. It was good to see that Non-chan became more nice(like when he was being spoiled, not when he was young) and that he had accepted the surgery, also when he asked Kotoko if she could hold his hand during the surgery was cute. ^_^ I really liked seeing the older version of Yuki cause.. I wanted to lol.

Fantastic ep.

I just can't fathom where they are going to go from here. THere is so much left to cover, so many wonderful plots and its all down to 4 episodes ^^;

I really hope they get to the "2 year" plot?

You all go for Irie's comment, but the really awesome thing this episode was Kotoko going berserk in front of Nono.

She was really cool this episode.

Kotoko, banzai! ;-)

I thought it was kinda obvious that it'd be Non-chan... not by looks, but the name at least. Plus we all knew he was gonna reappear eventually.

Absolutely loved the part where Non-chan went to tell Kotoko that he'll accept the surgery. Beautiful scene.

I was wondering when that kid would show up again seeing as he was a pivotal reason for Naoki being a doctor. This show is less rage inducing now I guess.

Also..... Naoki's and Kotoko have full time jobs and still live with their parents? It's not like they're poor or anything.

Now I know who his voice reminded me of, it was Kurama. Except Kurama was cool, and this guy is a dick. Kotoko shouldn't have slapped him though, bitch could've fallen into a coma. I also wonder why they'd have a nurse in the operating room, also they never told us that Naoki was a surgeon, but I guess he had to preform that surgery to make things interesting.

21 episodes and 7 years have passed. I think this series just escalates to quickly but it has its moments which are just worth remembering

I actually didn't know how much years have passed... I was quite amazed that that was actually Non-chan! A nice episode though, especially the ending made it really great! Good going Kotoko! Lets hope the surgery goes well!

"He's no longer the angel Non-chan. He's a devil of selfishness" Lol poor Kotoko, first the old hag and now this! It's a good thing everything was settled by the end.

All that's left is for Naoki and the rest of the team to cure Non-chan! I think the operation will be successful so the next episode will be all smiles :D

Oh damn, he sure changed a lot. At first, I thought it was that blond friend of Naoki, but to think that the cute little boy... Well, like Moto-chan said (or was it Shinagawa?) it would have been weird if he hadn't changed.

He became really bitter and cynical toward doctors, though I can understand his annoyance of promises.

Kotoko slapping a patient... That was somehow very cool :P
''Stop being such a bitch!''

From the next episode title, I guess she'll fall pregnant, but for real this time x)

Kotoko like a boss, slaps Non-chan. He totally deserved it despite his pessimistic attitude.

Yuuki gets slim, and Non-chan goes blonde and has earings. So many changes. Nice to see Matsumoto again.

It's kinda all over the place right??
I guess it's a trick to re-introduce all the other supporting chars and a plot to emphasize Naoki's doctor commitment.
But boring
