Everyone who is participating in the concour are called for a meeting by Kanazawa-sensei. There Shinbu Ousaki asks them to help him perform in this school for some kids. But Yunoki, Tsuchiura and Fuyuumi say they have work to do. Ousaki is even more happy because the string players can come and they can play in a quartet then, hearing this Shimizu seems really happy. Hihara is also free so he will help them set up etc. So the 5 of them go to the school and meet the kids. There they are going to play one of Mozart’s pieces. Hino flashbacks on some hours ago where she is telling them that she can’t play a piece she has never heard, but then Tsukimori and Shimizu say that they will take the hard parts. When they start playing, right away they no that their playing is not going together but the children don’t know. Tsukimori helps Hino by telling her to follow his playing and then they start to play properly. After their performance is over Hino thanks Tsukimori and he comments on if she can’t do that much what will she do later on, she agrees with him which shocks Tsukimori. Hihara who was doing an errand comes in but sees that everyone has finished playing and is sad but Tsukimori tells him it wasn’t worth hearing or seeing.
Later on all of them are helping the kids play, Hihara tries to play the violin too. When Tsukimori starts teaching all the girls surround him and almost all of them want to ask him questions lol! As Hino is watching all the kids have fun and play she feels like she should have learnt the violin when she was small too. When they are getting ready to go Ousaki notices that some violins are missing so Hino goes to get them. When she finds the violin she thinks to herself that she has never touched a normal violin. So she tries to play but ends up pretty bad. She starts feeling sad and says that “I knew this would happen” But Tsukimori hears her say that ahd he had heard her play the violin badly too so he starts asking her questions about what she just said but Hihara comes in thinking she needed help in getting the violins. Hino runs out into the playground. When she is sitting on the swings thinking, the kids from before come and tell her that they want to play really well just like her. She asks them if they hate liars, they all say that they hate liars. Hino starts crying, Hihara sees this but doesn’t understand anything.
The next day Tsuchiura asks her if anything is wrong but she denies it right then Tsukimori comes causing Hino to run out. Later when she is practicing she is playing furiously saying that if she practices a lot it will go away. But then Tsukimori stops her and tells her that she will spoil the violin. He tells her that it’s as if she can only play that violin but she denies it and he says that if she got into the concour like that and with that sort of feeling then he will never acknowledge her.
My Thoughts: Pretty intense episode. Tsuchiura is shocked when he hears Hihara call Hino by her first name.lol Since Tsukimori is onto her she will have to be much more careful. But where is Lili in all of this?? shouldn’t he be guiding her? I hope everything is fine but next episode seems like it’s going to be bad.
The competition day has arrived but Hino doesn’t think she can play. Also it seems like something big happens as everyone looks shocked. I think Hino’s violin’s string loses its power or breaks.
