You are so right Rebecca1/2. I really enjoyed this episode - I think it is my favorite one so far.
Episode 7 -
This was a very beautiful and touching episode. During a meteor shower, Kurika makes a wish that she’d like to dream. Everyone plans to go together and watch the fireworks at the summer festival. But Dr. Marronflower is working on a device that reads people’s minds and he will use it at the festival to find out the identities of Dokkoida and Neruloid Girl. As he works, the device blows up the house.
Kurika wakes up in a field and finds out that she is little Suzuo’s teacher. As they walk along, he tells her that when he grows up, he wants to be the “Masked Flashman”. Along the way, they run into the rest of the characters in shifting realities.
I liked that at one point, Kurika is the superhero fighting against a much younger Dr. Marronflower. It was a great scene with her saving the day. She’s even better than Neruloid Girl! I also liked the scene at the summer festival when Suzuo’s mother is talking to her and little Suzuo chooses a Dokkoida mask. Did Kurika figure something out with these clues? Suzuo’s mother says that she is going to send her a gift to thank her for helping Suzuo.
Then Kurika is suddenly back in the room with everyone still making plans for the summer festival. Kurika is asked about a kimono and says she doesn’t have one. Suzuo says that his mother sent her a present to thank her (from the dream?) and it turns out to be a beautiful kimono. Kurika cries and upsets everyone, but it is only because she is happy. Although she decided her adventure was really a dream, I wonder if it was?
Later on, as she dresses for the festival, Dr. Marronflower is shown to be all tied up on the floor. Good for her! She goes to the festival with everyone and as they watch the fireworks, she thinks that she would like to live with her friends forever – that is her dream. A very sweet episode!
