Episode 5 –
[details=spoiler]Looks like Souta’s quest is on hold again. He kind of promised Akane a date without realizing it and now the rest of the girls at the dorm are up in arms. Nanami suggests that they all go on a date. However, Nanami and Ruri end up staying home. Souta doesn’t seem happy with all this in the first place, but at least there will be two less girls to fight over him. Still, it looks like Nanami staying home comes with a price. LOL
Souta meets Megumu first and Megumu treats Souta to a “manly” date. I don’t think it turned out that way though. I loved all the kissing flags that popped up at the café. Megumu may as well face it – he’s better as a girl.
Akane is next and they end up on a lake at a park. After Akane shows off her gondolier skills, Souta thinks it would be better if the rowed together. That ends up in an accidental embrace and Akane gets a wet dress. As least Akane’s mom told her to wear her “good” underwear and Souta has to wonder about that mother.
The third date is with Rin and once again, Rin is just too easy. They sit in a park and share childhood memories. But an embarrassing memory ends up with Rin making a scene, and fainting.
So, when Souta meets Kikuno for the fourth date, he’s carrying the unconscious Rin. They take her back to the dorm and end up having their date in Kikuno’s room. Another childhood memory shows how Kikuno became Souta’s big sister.
In the end, although Nanami had the dorm to herself the entire day, I think she would have liked being out with Souta as well. However, the other girls praise her for letting them have the day with Souta. And Souta was sweet enough to remember the cakes for Nanami too.
Ruri has some information on the underground passage, and reports to Souta. The tunnel actually exists under the dorm, but was buried. However, Ruri has already dug it out! She takes him to the tunnel and there, at the end of it, is the First Gate! But doesn’t he need to have the others with him? Convinced that the truth of the world is behind the door, he opens it.
The only thing the next room contains is a large chest with figures of the knight, magician, bishop, and ninja. There are other figures as well, but Souta can’t identify them, nor can Ruri can’t see the interior. Souta decides to leave it for now. Then he notices an opening in the back of the room, and Ruri tells him that it leads to the forest behind the dorm.
Suddenly, a bright lights shines from the opening, and Souta runs to investigate, telling Ruri to take care of the others in the dorm. Souta comes up out of a well in the forest where the bright light disappears to reveal another girl. This one tells him that she doesn’t like him messing with the world’s flags. She points to the top of her head and calls Souta “Mr. Enormous Death Flag”. She seems to be another one like Sakura![/details]
