briseis Posted November 21, 2015 Share Posted November 21, 2015 SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN, (WINTER NEVER CAME) AND THEN...ANGELAAwww, Junko catches the bouquet and Takane approves! So even though, it wasn’t from Takane she still received flowers this episode. The wedding photo is so adorable but why is Junko standing next to Kiyomiya and not Takane?! That photo again shows one thing - that Takane can’t fake his smiles even for the sake of politeness since he is the only one who isn’t smiling. So he really does smile much more around Junko, just like he said.I love all the curious sidelong glances Junko keeps giving him and then she indirectly admits to him that she’s jealous of his ex-girlfriends who were able to see his smile, but that it’s alright now since she can see it now too; finally allowing herself to look and it’s her who is observing him this time when he isn’t looking. However, the most significant and important part of this exchange for me is Takane’s facial expression when she tells him about his ex-girlfriends - slightly baffled and suprised as if he was wondering what she is talking about, but it turns into a silly smile when he realizes that she was mad at him because she was jealous. But has there ever been a reason for her to be jealous in the first place?“Do you know the names of my ex-girlfriends?”Congratulations to everyone who noticed the hint when I translated the names of Takane’s “girlfriends” and didn’t get misled by the mention of the summary which was, of course, the summary of the original manga. Because I’m inclined to believe that those girlfriends never existed in the first place. It’s my personal opinion, naturally, but I base them on certain undeniable facts and doesn’t it even seem probable that the writer has is pulling our leg once again? We have already estabilished with all those almost-kisses, Junko’s failed exam and that night at the hotel that he loves to mess with our minds. First of all, Takane asks her this question with a very amused and mischievious expression on his face and she thinks he is making fun of her but what if it is because he doesn’t know the names of his supposed ex-friends since he never had any to begin with. Actually, it was the names which Takeda used that made me question his words immediately - I mean what probability is there that almost all the women Takane dated were given the names of the four seasons? Takeda himself said that if he dated Fuyu-chan (winter) he would have completed the whole season but Fuyu-chan never came. Improbable right? The next reason - why would they show us all the scenes of Takane preparing his date and most speficically the scene where he realizes that Sankyuu has more dating experience than him? It would be such a huge inconsistency and the writer has many times proved that he is in complete control of his story which he basically building himself from scratch considering that he competely deviated from the source material (thank drama gods for that!). And finally, THIS IS A MAN WHO REFUSED TO SLEEP WITH A WOMAN UNLESS SHE LOVED HIM THE WAY HE LOVED HER!!! AND DIDN’T HE ALREADY MENTION MANY TIMES THAT ALL THESE FEELINGS ARE NEW TO HIM? Of course, you can agree with me or not since so far these are just my speculations and hypothesis. However, regardless whether it turns out to be true or not one thing is certain - there is only a small distance between jealousy and love. Jealousy, just like love, is blind and illogical so even if Takane haven’t dated anyone, it was the mere idea that someone would have him and it wouldn’t be her; such possessiveness is also part of love. And what people sometimes don’t realize is that jealousy actually means the fear of losing someone or something that is yours, it doesn’t mean to be angry that someone else had or has something you don’t. Therefore whether Junko admits it to herself or not, in her heart she already thinks of Takane as hers. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
