On the positive side at least they didn’t drag out the love rival situation for too long. The downside is that we absolutely spent an episode setting up Isana to just get shot down. Her friendship with Mizuto remains almost the same. The only real long-term gain here is that she’s closer to Minami and Yume after all this. And I guess the story couldn’t come up with a good way to add another friend to the mix without having them be a failed love interest. I do think there is benefit to having Isana become friends with the other girls and clearing things up with Mizuto might make things easier on her in the long term. But I still had a feeling of the episode kind of wasting time with something that isn’t that essential.
