As the season gets warmer, Tooru has a dream where her best friend Run leaves her amidst a flurry of cherry blossoms.
As it turns out, it’s almost Tooru’s birthday. And this season holds special memories for both Tooru and Run. It’s an episode of recollection and memories.
Hit past the break for more.
A Channel Episode 11: Birthday
Nagi and Yuuko discover that it’s almost Tooru’s 16th birthday. Also, entrance exams to high schools and universities occur during this season in Japan.
Run and Tooru then tell a story of their entrance exams.
Run decides to give Tooru some cakes a few days in advance of her birthday. One cake for each character leads to a whole lot of memories for all (and aftertaste of wasabi for Yuuko).
Amazingly Run still has photos and videos from last two of Tooru’s birthdays. The quickly passing seasons remind Tooru that next year, Run and co. will again be taking entrance exams – and that she’ll be left behind in high school alone one day.
