It feels like things are suddenly ready to take a step forward. Now it is possible that Shirogane backs off from his declaration in this episode. But I choose to give him credit and expect that he’s ready to make his move. Even if he is putting a future deadline on it, at least he’s actually put a deadline on his decision. He’s still wanting Kaguya to confess first. But at least looking at his future has reminded him that he can’t just pretend like he’s got all the time in the world. Frankly he should have been reminded of that when the student council dissolved last season. But now he really has to look ahead and the best chance to advance his relationship with Kaguya is right now. This is the most potential for progress we’ve seen in a while.
