This is actually a really good callback to have, reminding the viewer that Yuko’s had her own flaws in the past, even if they were mostly played for comedy, they’re still serious flaws. Especially since Hime really struggled with those flaws at the time. All friends make mistakes and have their insecurities, Hime is not alone in this. Even Megumi has messed up with Hime on occasion. I like that the show takes the time to remind us none of these characters are perfect.
I’ve got to log off now, but I’ll finish this episode’s blog up tonight!
