Test Day was coming up and everyone was scrambling to do their best with their studies…except for one.
We joined our soon to be lovebirds chilling at their secret spot with Grea playing the piano and Anne reading till she finished and did a lovely dance. She praised Grea’s playing but she was like “I can do better”. Anne asked for them to come back tomorrow but Grea was focused on studying for exams and would do so till they were finished. Anne was kinda disappointed.
There were two reasons for this. The first reason was made clear when she tried to help Hanna’s study group solve an equation and her answer was far too advanced for the group to comprehend. The same went for others studying. As we already know from Episode 1 Anne is a prodigy. She ain’t perfect but she’s super smart. The second reason would be revealed shortly.
Since there was no other student she could study with she hoped to at least study with her sweetheart. Alas Grea was doing fine on her own and didn’t want to bother Anne’s studies. Most of the episode was Anne feeling bored but most of all lonely without her Dragonborn beloved beside her. Naturally Grea also wanted to be with Anne but held herself back. She did notice her head to their secret spot.
There is one other thing of note in the episode. The secret spot I mentioned? It’s also where they first met…and fell in love (Quietly of course).
Once exams were over Grea IMMEDIATELY searched for Anne. She had a hunch where she’d be. She was right. Anne was of course pouty Grea left her alone for so long.
I haven’t gone into much detail about the Post-ED segments up till now but this time it’s super important.
I’m pretty sure all this happened on the night before Test Day. Anne looked at her study material and felt it was dated so she spent the rest of the evening thinking about Grea…Something she does every single day.
And now for the main reason why I’m talking about this week’s Post-ED.
So here we have Hanna and her secretary (Poppy) again. Count how many beds were in their room…You know where I’m going with this.
I say this a lot but it bears repeating: I LOVE MANARIA/MYSTERIA FRIENDS SO FREAKIN’ MUCH!
ENDRO~! may be my best overall show of Winter 2019 so far but Manaria/Mysteria Friends is the most emotionally fulfilling and that’s more important to me.
